ALBUM

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

Valid - "Mihajlo" + Release Party on May 11th at Underground @ DIME

This Saturday at Underground @ DIME join Valid for the release party behind what I can honestly say is one of my favorite full-lengths to drop in 2019. I’ve had a bit of time to soak in all that is “Mihajlo” and although I want to spend a little more time before dropping my formal review I can definitely say off early impressions that it’s quite a fantastic project.  The eleven songs that grace “Mihajlo” take you on a personal journey in getting to know Valid on a deeper level in a powerful and cohesive way.  The minimal features fit in perfectly such as Elzhi, Mahogany Jones, DJ Los, & Aaron Taylor among others providing their talents in an effective way. I’ll have my full review of the project here in the next couple weeks but besides that this Saturday, you can take in “Mihajlo” live as you celebrate alongside Valid himself plus star-studded performances via Clear Soul Forces, Supa Emcee, & A Minus. Preview the album above & come out this Saturday, May 11th at 9 PM for “The Mihajlo Album Release Party” at 1265 Griswold, Detroit, MI. $10 ENTRY.

Published

What’s better than a good old rivalry between two NBA teams in the prime era? Imagine Jordan VS Thomas in rap form, the Bad Boys against the ’90s dynasty that was the BULLS. Well, imagine no longer as the tale of two cities tells itself via two lyrical monsters going back and forth over ten banging records. Make that twelve if you’re copping the physicals – a purchase well spent if you ask me. Yes, Detroit’s own top-notch lyricist TY FARRIS represents the home team, our very own Detroit Pistons as he goes head to head with Chicago emcee WATERR representing the Chicago Bulls. Preview the fire below & take in an old fashioned rivalry with a modern twist for we may not be seeing these two teams in the playoffs with the current state of the NBA but we surely can enjoy these two emcees in champions form on “Bulls VS Pistons“.
