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

Bang Belushi “Rudy” Album

Published

on

Detroit Veteran Bang Belushi is back with Rudy, his 2nd installment on the Middle Finger Music imprint. We once again see Bang teaming up with MFM’s man behind the music, super producer Foul mouth. The album begins with Bang reminding himself of his legend status and deciding that it’s time to show people what transformed Rudy into Bang Belushi. The title track starts off with a quick verse previewing the menu of what to be expected from this 16-course meal. Rudy is littered with Bang detailing his extracurricular activities growing up on the brazen streets of Detroit ranging from high grade cannabis, promiscuous women, running from police, and of course excessive amounts of Popov. Bang teams up
with fellow MFM comrades as well as other notable emcees each equally pushing their own unique vision providing natural progression between tracks. Rudy highlights Bang and Foul mouth’s undeniable chemistry. The texture and soundscape of the record almost makes it sound as if Bang and Foul mouth
are speaking back and forth at times. Effortless. On “Feeling like Biggie”, Bang skates over a smooth piano sample sketching up stories about lessons learned in his earlier days in Detroit leading up to the transformation of Bang Belushi…“When I was comin’ up Big was my idol / Ready to Die everyday struggle my bible.” On the album’s outro, we hear a side of Bang we are not as accustomed to. He
speaks from the heart about his children and lost loved ones. “For my youngest little Ryan, Daddy love you / you my twin I feel the love when I hug you…….Through my kids I finally see a better me / left the
hoes alone…” Allow yourself to view Bang Belushi’s life through his musical point of view. Rudy is artistic. Rudy is colorful. Rudy is raw. Rudy is Bang Belushi, and Bang Belushi is a legend.
