Killz Korner Ty Farris

This week we are ft.Ty Farris with his project “Room 39 part 2” and the group Street Life who are the hottest in the city right now.

Ty has hit the streets hard with “Room 39 Part 2″. ( available at https://tyfarris.com/ ). This is hard hitting street music. I am very involved in the Detroit Music scene and I am here to tell you that Ty has earned his stripes and deserves the accolade of one of Detroit’s best artist. The eastside native has created his own lane and with his producer Trox have provided some griity music to get through a gritty life. This music is a perfect soundtrack of what hood life is about.
Room 39 is 11 tracks of substance, an attribute that is missing from most music that is thrown together nowadays. The mixing and mastering of the songs are excellent and Farris delivers blow after blow of outstanding lyricism and thought provoking punchlines.

I came into this review with my Big Proof ears on and I must say that I am over impressed with the album delivered to my music buzz. with lines like ” I don’t migrate with fly weights, since 98 around niggas that buy weight”. Lines like this stick out to me because if you are from Detroit there is some chance that you have sold drugs before, even if by association. This is just facts. These types of rhymes along with the gritty beats provided by Trox give the perfect soundtrack to a hood adventure.

My fav tracks are “Please Don’t overdose”, “Came a long Way” ft LIL Fame of MOP and 38 Spesh, and my favorite track is “Say my name” which takes me back to the Purple Gang days.

It’s time for me to leave a rating, and I must say that I am biased as a review because I know this mufaka personally. He is actually this asshole on the songs in real life. So for that to be the case its hard for me not to grade his album even harder than I would the average emcee, and i still have to give him 4 and 1/2 tokes. This is good music and I must say that i am proud to announce that Ty Farris is bringing the fire that the streets need in the city of Detroit, Eastside stand up, the boy did something for y’all.

Killz Korner rating 4 1/2 tokes.

The album has been available since July 26th, 2019, and make sure you add it to workout playlist.

TINY JAG DENIED PROMO FOR ANTI-PATRIARCY VIDEO

TINY JAG DENIED PROMO FOR ANTI-PATRIARCY VIDEO
Detroit’s Tiny Jag is a rapper, singer/songwriter known for conveying relevant messages throughout her music. One of her most consistent; the empowerment of women. Recently, Tiny Jag released a vibrant visual to her single ‘Bizarre,’ challenging the traditional story of creation and Adam and Eve.
Tiny Jag on her intentions with the ‘Bizarre’ Music Video:
“We hear about Eve’s shortcomings at a very young age. Many of us are influenced by that to view women as inadequate before we can even understand what we’re digesting. I wanted to challenge that narrative and give its followers a bit of a hard time.”
Shortly after releasing the controversial video via YouTube, Tiny Jag and team began to push the visual for support and promotion. Among these attempts were numerous tries with Facebook (also owning/controlling Instagram). After every tweaked attempt fell short of approval, Tiny Jag realized the concept and message of her work may be what was truly denied.
Tiny Jag on being censored as a woman:
“So I knew we weren’t going to get support for the video if it had cursing or discriminatory lyrics, I avoided those things.  The track/visual do not discuss, promote, or demonstrate sexual acts, no nudity. I mean, it’s a bit out of the box but to censor me for anything short of those things seems discriminatory in itself. I can’t help but believe that it’s an attack against what it represents.”

Last years “Thornton Melon” is just days away from dropping on limited edition Vinyl sporting a revisited version of last year’s masterpiece. Just 100 copies of the Brown 12” vinyl’s with black heavy splatter will be available. Never to be repressed in this vinyl color. It’s all happening in just a couple days on June 24th 3 PM EST /9 PM CET  at Copenhagen Crates https://cphcrates.com/

If “Jeet Kune Do” is any inkling of what’s to come forth on this reimagined take repackaged in an exquisite format than hip hop fans are in for something outstanding. This particular lyrical exchange of two Detroit legends sparring words atop an in your face battle royale worthy production from Dj Dez. Vstylez projects the confidence he comments on this verse with flawless delivery and Elzhi slides in providing sword slicing word dicing fine example of Detroit hip-hop. It’s a different level with these two and not too many emcees got it like this. Get yourself that brand new vinyl this June 24th and don’t wait too long… I have a feeling 100 copies won’t last long for this one, I’ll know I’ll be ready to grab my copy that day.
