ALBUM

Enter Portraits, A Definitive Album From Chris Orrick.

Published

on

Chris Orrick isn’t afraid to tell you everything he hates, yet the opening verse of Portraits paints an artist who seems to be questioning his position in this world of creators he enters. Not for this era he laments before going on his hate rant & I’d venture to go to bat with that argument in an industry consumed by simple melodies plus a lack of lyrical depth. I would also dare to say I don’t buy that – this year has been a treat for hip hop listeners & Portraits provides a competitive slice of lyricist pie. In fact as I listened to Chris Orrick’s advice & let the music play on I knew this ex-factory worker from Michigan whose been at the lyrical helm for the last half-decade was delivering a definitive album. Formally RED PILL, Chris ditches his old entity & delivers an honest, real life rap, & social commentary infused lyrical portrait of who he is as an artist. Piano pattered productions from a powerful team of producers including Nolan the Ninja, L’Orange, Exile, Apollo Brown, and Onra blend effortlessly into each other & demonstrate the perfect backdrop for Portraits. The element of consistency record to record is one of my largest compliments for PortraitsChris Orrick has seemingly mastered the art of having a sound that defines him. He successfully delivers an album that plays like one enormously long song even on shuffle yet in a rare way each song still carries it weight solo. The first three entree’s of Portraits provide a powerful opening punch & as you move forward it just builds & builds. Fashawn & Verbal Kent arrive as the only two guest appearances both to shine with fantastic verses. All in all Portraits is well worth the listen, & damn near one of the best projects I’ve heard this year.( Surely in my top ten.) If I were to pick three standouts “Design Flaw“, “Bottom Feeders feat. Fashawn“, & “Mom” would top my list with extra props to Nolan The Ninja on “Mom” for having supplied easily one of my favorite instrumentals of the year. Preview “Portraits” below and remember if your down with the sounds to share, stream, or buy the album today to help show your support for one of Mello Music Group’s finest artists & latest offerings. – COMMi$$ION

Published

By

Hashous Clay DIED 4/13/2013 12:37am Stockton, CA.
Paradoxically, Burgeoning from the West side of Detroit hailing from Hollywood, CA., Rapper
Hashous Clay was resurrected 4/20/2013 3:07am in Stockton, CA.
Clay endured a massive heart attack Succumbing to cardiac arrest 10 times. While recovering, one
year later to the date the prodigy had a stroke that severely damaged the right side of his brain and
ameliorating his genius forever.
Mind Bogglingly, through riding a bicycle, Hashous Clay taught himself to write and perform again.
Since the beginning of his career, Clay harnessed his skill by performing and battling throughout
the city. His talent gained the attention of the late Big Proof which led to a deal from “Iron Fist
Records” before Big Proof’s Untimely demise.
A couple of months later, the masterful Hashous Clay moved to Arizona where Wu Tang Clan’s
Cappadonna caught wind of Hashous Clay at a studio in Phoenix. This ultimately led to two features
on the Cappadonna’s classic album titled “The Pillage 2”.
His ingenuity has been resurrected through his adept rap skills and he is back in
2022 with his latest album “Fonkin up traffic”.
“Fonkin Up Traffic” as Hash himself delineates “…is Me riding 25 miles exorcising my demons”. It is
the soundtrack to wellness, triumph, and surviving. All you need is a bike and you too can Fonk Up
Traffic.
Take control of your mind, body, and soul, we “Fonkin Up Traffic”.

Ty Farris x Sebb Bash – Fluorescent Mud LP

Published

on

By

It has been an honor and privilege to witness the journey of Detroit’s Ty Farris with my own eyes. Back in the early 2000’s when you had to battle rap to earn the respect of your peers in order to make your way into the Detroit Hip Hop Scene, Ty made a name for himself as a battle rapper renowned in the city alongside his partner-In-rhyme: Famous. After multiple mixtapes together and being mentored by the late great Big Proof, eventually Ty took his hunger, competitive mindstate, and undeniable work ethic and incorporated it into his solo music which led him to crafting a critically acclaimed and highly lauded catalog Including the celebrated “No Cosign Just Cocaine” series.  He also went headfirst into the business side of music, his brand “bars over bs”, which prides itself on high quality music and merchandise. Ty Is back with a new project: “Fluorescent Mud” produced entirely By Sebb Bash. This album is a carefully detailed work of art, One Of One! After 4 years of meticulously crafting this project, it is safe to say that it is a radical departure from the sound of many of his underground contemporaries. Sebb Bash provides some of the most uniquely crafted and sonically diverse production of Ty’s career. It’s no mistake The Alchemist himself reached out to Bash and executive produced his instrumental project “Imports” released under his label ALC Records.  Sebb provides Ty Farris with unconventional and at times challenging beats to push his pen to its limits. Features from the witty air walking flow of Estee Nack & the legend and one of the godfathers of the underground Planet Asia. This project was mixed and mastered by one of the best in the world,the Grammy award winning  Philippe Weiss whose credentials include some of the top performing musicians of the last 4 decades . The artwork was handmade and captured by the masterful Alex Lala. Fluorescent Mud is a break from the endless sea of formulaic and sometimes monotonous underground releases. Over the album’s 13 tracks it showcases 2 masters of their crafts melding their talents into something truly worthy of praise. It is great to see an eastside Kid From 6 Mile And Davidson overcome the odds and become a top-tier Emcee and successful entrepreneur in the underground wave! Support And Cop The Album Here
