Ro Spit and Nick Speed take listeners on a late night trip with new project Coney Island

DETROIT, MI — In Michigan, especially in urban cities like Detroit and Pontiac, coney island
restaurants are more than just late night diners or hot dog joints. They’re the place friends
gather to catch up, hang out, and make plans. A trip to coney island after a long night out could
very well turn into an adventure or party of its own.
That vibe is exactly what multi-hyphenate creatives Ro Spit and Nick Speed have captured with
their project, Coney Island, a concept album that takes the listener on late night journey to
Michigan’s favorite late night grill.
“Growing up, some of my favorite albums from other cities made me feel like I was right there
with the artists,” said Nick Speed. “I really wanted to make people feel like they were right in
Detroit with some real people from the city every time they listen to the album.”
For Detroit’s Nick Speed and Pontiac’s Ro Spit, collaborating on the project was a very natural
and authentic partnership, as the two have worked together frequently throughout their careers.
Coney Island started with a small idea during the pandemic and expanded into a larger project.
“Partnering with Nick Speed for this project was very organic. Originally, it was only supposed to
be a couple of freestyles during the pandemic, but turned into much more,” said Ro Spit. “This
project has its own sound that traces back to who we are as individual artists. We were able to
take our own sounds, and create something new and refreshing.”
While a trip to coney island may be the album’s theme, it is not the only representation of Detroit
culture featured on the album. The album features 6aamm, SDNY, T. Calmese, Jam Bino, and
Boldy James. Coney Island’s album artwork might feel familiar to many, as it was created by
artist and muralist Sheefy McFly. Traces of Detroit slang and references, and sounds like
ghettotech can also be heard throughout the entire album.
“The album is designed for the listeners to get an authentic Detroit experience with each listen,”
said Nick Speed. “ You will hear our slang, our thought process, our music selection, and what
we believe in — real life situations.”

The Plant (Web Series) created by Kenyon “Jigsaw” Pruitt

Published

If you come from an area of the country known as the “MIDWEST”, chances are you know or understand “The Plant” life. Enter writer, director, and producer Kenyon “Jigsaw” Pruit. The Plant is a comedic true to life series about life in the manufacturing industry. The Plant is a lot different than working in the retail industry. In retail you deal with different people frequently during the day, but “The Plant” normally has you in close quarters with the same people 40 plus hours a week.

This element is what ties “The Plant” together. A small group of people from all races, backgrounds, and religions for that matter. In the plant a matter of months can see people go from strangers to friends, lovers to enemies. My only complaint about this series is that we only get 5 episodes. But those 5 episodes was perfectly executed as we got familiar with the cast in a non-rushed hilarious way.

Plant supervisor Wil has the difficult task of keeping this band of misfits productive first and working as a team overall.  But as we all know it’s a hard job trying to keep from mixing business with pleasure as we learn in the first episode that it’s some “FREAKY THANGS” going on up in “The Plant”. Within the first 10 minutes of episode one we find Will and Ms All That Nika ready to get busy, but Will could use a “Little something to get the mood right. While turning on some ADULT extra-curricular activities they see none other than co-worker Goldie Fox who seems to be the (RESIDENT HOT GIRL) of the crew.

No matter where you go in the work place you always seem to have those folks that have little respect for people’s property or personal space. What’s a lunchroom without some one ending up pissed that the lunch they been waiting all day for just happens to “DISAPPEAR” when its time to grub. The first to fall victim in episode one is the 6ft 5 275 lb Big Baby of the bunch KONG. Now I don’t really know how tall or how much this dude weighs but why they call him Baby is beyond me, maybe they following the Baby wave in music now but my bad I digressed, lol. Mr. Know it All Love Joy plays the IDGAF I’m going to do what I want this my world role with his recent Long John Silver siting.

I don’t care where you work somewhere lurking is the weed head and all we know about our man in “The Plant” is his name is Homie, lol. Only problem with Homie is it looks like he enjoys being a clown on the job. Being high, in a plant is a recipe for disaster and that’s where Homie the Weed Head takes us wile goofing around with Big Scam, who looks like a little version of Big Baby, yea I’m confused too lol. Big Scam is that Asshole at work that just say the most insensitive yet realist spill ever. Can you really be mad at that? Hell yea that fool know what he doing! Anyway, I am sure we all know where this is going… DRUG TEST!!!! Which is going to lead to SAFETY INSPECTION! Both NIGHTMARE events when you are talking about that Plant Life. As we wrap up all of this enlightenment in the first episode, we find T (the Stud) suffering from some cramps and Big Scam and Big Baby Kong walk off and leave her with what we thought may have been something for pain. Minutes later we find out that wasn’t any Tylenol and T is off the Chain ready to get DOWN!!!!

The following episodes give us a chance to know the rest of the crew like the front office staff that works directly with Wil like his Assistant Candace your typical “White” black girl you can find in many Midwest urban areas. Her interaction with the mail man and the UPS guy are hilarious. Dianna Red bone the Hustler is quick to find any opportunity to “Get A Bag” hook or crook. And you better think twice about asking for any kind of refunds. Where would we be without somebody to kiss the boss ass, be everybody friend just to share the info with management for a personal come up, never quite ends the way they plan but the provide great entertainment to the workday in form of daily gossip. Entity sure gives the character justice. Rounding out the colorful cast is UcciKhann the formerly incarcerated Muslim. Tables turn on everybody when he meets his “White Devil” counterpart, LMAO!!!

As I said at the beginning of this review, my only complaint is that I didn’t have more episodes to enjoy a good laugh, that said I’m looking forward to Season 2, and if any the participants for season ones finale The Job Fair made the cut.

Detroit Producer Apollo Brown Drops Video For “Kite Strings” From His New Instrumental Album “This Must Be The Place”

Published

on

 

Apollo Brown’s latest solo album, This Must Be the Place, is out everywhere. Now he’s released the video for “Kite Strings.” A master of melancholic productions, Brown pairs cavernous drums and striking metallic hi-hats with spooky choral vocals and shimmering keys on “Kite Strings.” The result is dark and fantastical with glimmers of joy, an artful encapsulation of the fall that could double as the score to a Ray Bradbury adaptation. Directed by Uzair Ahmad, the spooky animated video moves between ultra-modern and alien worlds via flashes and streams of vibrant colors and psychedelic patterns, a pair of disembodied hands orchestrating the journey. It’s a visual metaphor for This Must Be the Place, where Brown sonically guides listeners to uncharted sonic territory. Watch the video, play the album, and take a trip.
