Detroit’s Rising Rap Catalyst KiD Swoop Presents 4SoLong.

Published

on

Detroit’s KID SWOOP has been making moves & on Friday the local emcee unleashed his own twelve track album not to be overshadowed amongst a busy release day. I had a chance to preview the album a couple weeks back, & I wanted to get another listen upon release to give myself time to reflect on my initial thoughts. “4SOLONG” confirmed those thoughts for me today – the title track opens the effort finessing one of the few features & giving insight into SWOOP’s sonic style. As the album pushes forward it progresses well with a strong song arrangement that melds each into the next providing a cohesive listening session. Early standout track “Shottas” shines production wise & KID SWOOP flexes his lyricism throughout. “Menace to My City” addresses the city & explains his viewpoints as a whole on the topic while thoroughly tying in his life experience – it’s another standout & provides the perfect halfway point to the album. A mixture of singing & rapping capabilities carry on with “Down & Out” with a hook that is real as fuck but catchy as fuck at the same time. It garners my pick as my favorite cut off the record & luckily KID SWOOP provided the visual treatment. You can watch that video below but the remainder of the album still rides out smoothly. I gave it the car test today & “Do It” & “Sacrifices” both caught my ears during the commute. Overall the whole offering ended up passing my car test & the two track closers bring on the few remaining features. With “Video ChatYSF Cee lends his contributions in another of my favorite cuts & shutting out the album JCasperson & Mose also help out with closing with “Fvckwithme“. As an album I found it a solid offering after a few thorough listens & well it may not be a groundbreaking effort I would say KID SWOOP is breaking ground. For existing fans it’s a polished offering to hear more & for those to come it’s a great awareness record. Certainly more is to come from the the rising rap catalyst so get out there and stream, buy, & share if your down with the record to show your support! In the meantime get to listening below! – COMMi$$ION

“Axel Foley” New Album by Killz

Published

“You can hear my pain in the verse,  im versed in the game.” Lines from the first song “Get Up” off the recently released AXEL FOLEY from Killz. There could not have been a better way to set the tone for this album. Jay Z could not have laid a better verse from one of his many classic albums.

“Axel Foley” finds Killz in the mecca of the desert Las Vegas. If any city can understand the mob mentality it takes to make it past 20 and not be dead, in prison or homeless like Detroit its Sin City. Get up has a ocean freeway drive vibe musically, yet i can also place myself in a foreign with the top peeled back doing 90 on Mt Rose. Yea you might Kill yourself!

This isnt a full in depth review. But more so a must listen with tracks like “Just Speak in” “Rearview” “We in This” and “My Own” for the commercial ear. Songs that give it to you lyrically from “Open Mic” to “Real Ones” “Mobbin” and a classic feature from Dog Pounds finest Kurupt on “We On” treat yourself to the Axel Foley experience from Killz

The tape features the usual cast and crew on production with B.e-Z exclusively doing every beat on the project, exposing a myriad of feelings and tones through highly unique instrumentals that take the listener on an audio adventure like no other.

Just got a email with the new Anthems & Icons from the 80 Empire. I thought to myself, ok i know the crew is from across the bridge over in Canada. Go ahead and follow the link and got beat over the Head with the opening record from KRS ONE “WE RUN SHIT” feat DJ Eclipse on the cuts! Ok im sold as i look at the credits and notice a couple Michigan Goats on the project Swifty Mcvay and Jon Connor. So im like bet lets run this project.

Then the second song comes on with a hypnotizing track and the voice of MC Eiht with some guest work from Kurupt and we are sold already. To find your favorite Detroit artist on the project make sure you tap in with the joint “BRAVO” feat DJ Spice and NEMS along with Swifty. Stand For Something feat Jon Connor needs to be the title track for a future oscar nominated film. This song is produced and written to inspire emotion and thought. Check out the entire project at a streaming service near you!
