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

KK Produxions Presents “EPITOME MUSIC” Peep the Visual for “BE ME” featuring Creole

Published

on

By

 

Depending on what era of Detroit Hip Hop you follow, you may know him as “Killa Kaun” or maybe just “Kaun” hence the KK PRODUXIONS. But today in 2021 we know him as KILLZ. Legendary Freestyler, Battle Rapper (before battles were pre-written) Promoter, Photographer recently added music producer to the list and one hell of a writer.

Killz music has always come from the streets, the hood to be exact. But not the simple grammar that you mostly find in street music today. Now we dont say this to paint the picture that he is Hippidy Hoppidy lyrical miracle that can fly over the common listeners head… No he just has a way with words that every great writer displays.

Killz has always been a giver, a man that enjoys giving opportunities. For the only purpose of wanting to see those around him shine too. There is no question that Killz can carry a entire project solo but this time around he decided to share the spotlight and big up the next artist to carry the KK Produxions flag.

We are not sure that any songs captures the REAL KILLZ on this compilation as “BE ME” does featuring Creole. The visual from “BE ME” takes us on a historical journey via the life of KILLZ. A flash back on his life now as he delivers the verse in the desert sun.

American Gangsta feat Killz, Creole, and Black Laz, is the perfect song for a movie soundtrack. The struggle for the black man trying to come up is real, either you ride all day for yours or fall off to the wasteside.

“Some of yall just gotta look in the mirror to see a fake nigga” Killz first words on the song “FAKE LOVE” says it all. Now a days it seems as if everyone is fake, has a hidden agenda or just secretly out to destroy you. We cant get ahead with those type in your circle. you may find yourself all alone at times. But these moments only make a real one stronger.

The youngest on the squad Syncere features on the track “City Bars”, while Creole Baby brings some RnB flavor on the song “Just a Minute” and it wouldnt be a Killz produced project without a little shake sumn music like you’ll find on “Twerk It Out”. Killz is a emcees emcee so one of the tracks that will resonate with any artist that lived thru the struggle is “Breathing Treatment” feat King Crooked and Black Laz.

We strongly recommend giving Epitome Music a listen
