After months of teasing it’s arrival with short clips & screenshots the wait is over and the brand new video from Denaun is here. “Incredible” is quite the fitting adjective to name the latest record from Detroit super producer slash rapper. Not only is it a bar for bar extravaganza but “Incredible” is also one of the dopest visuals I’ve seen in recent years. Opening up with the words of the late great Muhammad Ali before leading into his pen sharp flows one thing is undoubtedly true by the end of the eye-catching visuals, that truth is that not only has Denaun returned but he is as hungry as ever with this quick yet lyrically lethal dose in an intriguing sample of what’s in store for 2019.

FEATURED

“PONTIAC” the hidden GEM. Over 30 artist featured!

Published

Detroit is what most people know when you say Michigan, but its not the sole spot that the hip hop culture comes from. Although it has its heavy influence on the cities around it like Inkster, Pontiac, Ypsilanti, and a little further out to cities like Grand Rapids, Lansing, Flint and Saginaw Michigan is like a “TASTE FEST”  for music.

Today we will put a spotlight on PONTIAC. Now what’s interesting about this story is it all came about because of a video reel put together by a videographer from another state. In the hip hop game everyone is a self proclaimed super star. That’s ok because if you don’t believe in yourself who will? But with all the self hype i tend to pay attention when fans speak on things they have no affiliation with. In my opinion that’s when your really buzzing, when random people speak on you.

Enter Shades Vision Tv.  I had to know how all this came together so i asked him a couple questions.

  So how does a videographer from North Carolina end up putting together a reel on Pontiac artists?

I Actually Did a Flint Michigan List where I Featured Dro Skino & He Later Let Me Know That he was Actually from Pontiac,

So I Asked him if he would like to see one for Pontiac & he sent me the artists for the first list, And because of that I ended up getting to know more Pontiac artists & couple lists later we are where we are now, it’s still more awesome artists that aren’t on the current list but they will be recognized Very Soon.

  Have you done this kind of feature work before for other cities?

Yes My Very First City is my Home Town Lima Ohio, So Far I’ve done about 20 Cities From states like  Ohio, Michigan, North Carolina, Oregon, Louisiana, New York & Wisconsin. 

What are your thoughts on the indie music underground scene nationwide. What are some similarities and what are some differences?

Well I Find that I Like The Underground Rap Scene Much Better than Mainstream, 

I think the style From The Midwest Are Soo Much Different then The Deep South.

Every city Has It’s Sound that people generally cling too. New York has that UK Trap Sound they Brought Out With Artists Like POP Smoke Making Noise Shortly before his passing, then Detroit, Flint, Pontiac Just has that unique sound that surrounding States Like Ohio Illinois try to Imitate because it’s become so Popular. But if I were to say one thing about Pontiac it’s The “ variety” 

For Example 

You got Mark Fay GHG & Sxam Man with the  Melodic Sound

You Got BH True, K Scheming, YakGod Drizz with the story Telling Knowledge Music.

You Got Dro Skino, Mari Red, Tay Stacks with that Detroit Flint Sound.

You Got T. Krueger, Mohawk Roc, Dee Bee with that music that make you Wanna Rob Somebody lol

I could go on Naming Names cause I really am Legitimately a Fan of Pontiacs Talent & I Think They Deserve to Be Mentioned when people think of the Michigan Rap Scene

  What are some of your personal goals over the next 3 years?

I Would Like To Get Most of the City lists done in All 50 States by that time, I know that’s a Long Haul but that’s my Goal, To Connect All Underground Artists too each Other in Hopes To Create a easier Networking System.

After chatting with him i found that his back story is the same as most inner city youth. Losing homies to the streets growing up and being the odd man out as a white kid in what’s considered to be black culture hip hop gave him a sense of peace in a ruff life growing up in Lima Ohio. Shout out to Shades Vision for spotlighting some of the mittens that may not be on most peoples radar. And also big up’s to Dro Skino. Without him sharing names this may not have ever became a reality.

So what we have here is a collection of videos from the city of Pontiac. If you want to dive deeper Shades made it simple to do so making sure all of the names are mentioned in their clips. I was familiar with a handful of the artist featured, but there was quite a bit I’ve never heard of. I cant say I’m surprised as the city of Pontiac always had some talented artist, producers, and musicians in the city.

I invite you to get familiar with some hot music!
