Export Ghost – “i Promise” Feat. Marv Won



Raw House LLC is the brainchild of beats gordy a dedicated music lover with a passion for bringing great music to life & a goal of changing as many lives for the better as possible. With a starting roster of four talented individuals beats gordy reached out & connected me with the music his team has created for the world to hear. Throughout the plethora of submissions I receive on a daily basis it’s grown harder to stand out to me but as I dug through the Raw House roster it soon became evident that there was something here.

With four different artists one thing that came apparent after listening through was that each has their own sound & each I can see bringing a separate element to the table. It’s a fantastic starting mix that is able to provide different audible experiences well still melding together as the conglomerate. I will also say that the professionalism in the approach from beats gordy also made a strong first impression. In a world of spamming links & an inbox of people essentially “demanding” I check them out it’s always a breath of fresh air when someone is genuinely reaching out. In fact for any artists who might be reading this & are thinking about submitting music not only to but any media outlet – a genuine introduction is going to yield much better results than shoving links down throats or tagging posts without any forewarning.

Raw House & team caught my attention & for good reason. Over the next week or so I will be shining a bit of light on each of the Raw House artists starting first with Export Ghost (1/2 of TrXpMXsk).

With “i Promise” Export Ghost brings along Detroit mainstay Marv Won who closes the record after a grand opening via Ghost in this boom bap feel good lyrical mastery. I replayed this one a good ten times in a row upon first hearing it & it’s been in rotation since. If you enjoy “i Promise” and are looking for more from Export Ghost you can also tune into “Monks” here:

If Export Ghost has got you hitting replay like myself be sure to keep watch as I’ll be diving into the rest of the Raw House roster in the coming days.


Da iLLAZ – People Under Detroit



Da iLLAZ - People Under Detroit

With pristine execution comes a homage to member illadope’s favorite hip-hop group the iconic People Under The Stairs. Speaking of hip-hop groups here we have the newly formed Da iLLAZ driving home a powerful debut mixtape packaged full of assorted gems. The wonderful thing about this collaboration is that each & every artist lent their abilities in a cohesive and effective way that provides a polished display of efforts.

I’m fresh off my first listen still working my way into the second but off first impressions there’s a lot of greatness to take in here. I will definitely call it early and say this project will certainly be occupying time on my playlist over the summer. There’s a lot to take in here and a plethora of dope features such as Semi Six and Noveliss among others. Also, we’ve got a RAPPIN’ GRANDMA? That’s right! Check out the video above for project titled “People Under Detroit” and catch L.A.Z.’s own mom dropping some stellar bars to kick things off right!

One thing I would also like to mention is the inclusion of crypto wallet addresses that I found on Da iLLAZ Bandcamp page. I’m starting to see more artists embrace the world of cryptocurrency but this was the first time I’ve seen them included on a Bandcamp page! If you’re feeling the tape I’m going to include those below for those who would like to show their support in a Bitcoin sort of way.
