Export Ghost – “i Promise” Feat. Marv Won

Published

on

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 DetroitRap.com 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: https://soundcloud.com/exportghost/monks

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.

Josh Sport – “Black Do Crack”

Josh Sport - "Black Do Crack"

Dealing with a powerful message can be a difficult task for many artists, however, Josh Sport handles that very challenge effortlessly with his brand new single “Black Do Crack“. Tackling America’s crack epidemic comes his lyrical perspective from first-hand experience dealing inside of an environment that has been all too real for too many. The bouncy beat & Josh Sport’s fluid bars captivate and even though I’m not one to compare artists often I definitely got some earlier years Jay-Z type vibes with the production/delivery in which has been presented. A banger with replay value is a great quick description of what we have here and I’m definitely adding Josh Sport to the radar. – COMMi$$ION

Here’s a message from Josh Sport’s Soundcloud page itself breaking down the record.

A young Black males outlook on greed, materialism, drug dealing, Black on Black violence, guilt, and aspirations. Speaking from one who was born at the height of America’s crack epidemic, growing up and seeing it affects firsthand and eventually taking part as a dealer himself. This banger balances hard drums, grungey flows, and witty rhymes about crack cocaine and “cracking” under pressure. There are even references to Africa’s war on blood diamonds and how it is seen from the perspective of a young Black American male.

FROSTisRAD – “Cold Heart”

FROSTisRAD - "Cold Heart"

I’ll admit I’m no fan of spiders… Yet if anyone can get me to listen to a spider adorned single FROSTisRAD is that artist. I’ve been keeping my ears on the Detroit area creator for some time as he continues to drop gem after gem. As I grow closer to my second full decade in curating & participating in the industry one thing I’ve come to look for in artists is someone who is able to define their sound in a way that it’s instantly recognizable. FROSTisRAD is one of those artists. His sound is his own & his voice is unique enough to know it’s him as soon as you hear it. “Cold Heart” is no exception as a mixture of singing, screaming, and emceeing take turns as the record builds and builds. A rockstar in his own right with more music on the way, in the meantime, take in the glory of his latest above.

Borderline – Breathless (feat. One Be Lo & Cloudy Uchiha)

Published

on

This right here. This is the type of hip-hop that can leave the truest fans “Breathless“. This very song, titled just that is riddled with a trio of exponential lyricism. I’ve long respected & enjoyed the crafts of One Be Lo & Cloudy Uchida but excuse me for this being my first run-in with Borderline. It ran well. Three emcees in the truest form represent polished lyricism here & the repetition of “Every time I breathe I’m brushing death off my sleeve…” really tied it all together for me as I took in a good five or so listens of this record well I write these words. I’ve lived for getting lost in records since a young age & these are the types I can find myself lost in.
