Nametag Alexander – “Work. Win. Repeat.” The EP

Published

By

“Nametag Alexander follows up his most recent effort Hello Victory, with “Work. Win. Repeat.” The EP. The body of work was influenced by the mantra single of the same title from 2019, originally produced by Black Bethoven, featuring Junii. With duration being only 18 minutes, and change, ‘Tag manages to display just enough artistic vulnerability on tracks like “Dusk” and “Soul Speak”, while still maintaining his known lyric bravado on “Grands.” The “just stay focused” mentality is what makes the EP relatable, and there’s a clear intent to inspire based on the Les Brown clips throughout a few of the songs. Overall, Nametag properly delivers with this EP as “Work. Win. Repeat.” defines continuous self improvement, opposed to winning solely to impress others.”

A Return From Hiatus, Detroit Emcee Miz Korona Delivers "The Virus" EP

It has been said that inspiration can be found in the strangest of places sometimes and for one Detroit emcee that proves no truer than now. COVID-19 aka Coronavirus, has effected billions on a massive scale as humanity faces one of its most daunting tests to date. At first weary of the situation, Miz Korona was hesitant, however the encouragement of her peers has driven a return for the aptly named emcee.

A six song burst of new music titled “The Virus” has the legendary bar slinger back at it like she never left, as she takes us on a journey just shy of sixteen minutes that never peels back. By the end of the her return she is making damn sure we “Respect The Name“, the standout track amongst fierce company before she has us questioning if “45” is going to let us stay alive.

For a spur of the moment comeback, “The Virus” proves Miz Korona can disappear for a few years and still come back with a batch of pure quality like it was nothing. Thankfully, her peers have pushed for the timely return as we all experience this pandemic together and the new EP is a thoroughly enjoyable record perfect for your quarantine playlist.

On top of an outstanding showing from Miz Korona, the production & features here pack a powerful roster including Chanes, Mark Cooper, Marv WonDJ Static, King Gordy, LaShaun Phoenix, Maestro and Neco Redd.

"DON'T STAND TOO CLOSE VOL. 1" Junii

Year of Junii. . .
 ITS one of those things that you know is coming. Not to be psychic .. But when you hear an artist like Junii (Shaina Ferrell) and you hear
her undeniable creativity, innovativeness and originality. You know you are witnessing something more than special. Its a gift. And Junii is
truly gifted. Starting as a duo in the Hip Hop Soul group called Better In Black, Junii’s drive and talent was the backbone along with her
brother that made them stand out. Their sound, was Junii’s creation. She was the creative mastermind behind the productions as well as
delivering master class rapping and impressive singing chops to boot. She has enjoyed the rise as an independent artist, which saw
Better In Black transition from Internet to actual performances and moving beyond Sound Cloud releases. They officially released the EPs
The Garden (2018) and DELETE_EVERYTHING (2019).. The latter was recognized by Industry trade magazine, Music Connection Magazine
 Review Section with an 8.0 rating and later Bettr In Black was named as “Ones To Watch in 2020” by the magazine. Eventually her brother
Natrol Black would step down from Better In Black in late 2019. But Junii took the time to realign herself with ne collaborators and bounced
back with “THE UMA THURMAN EP” with Production unit STR8 BANGAZ out of NYC. The Result is Pure Hip Hop Euphoria with cuts like
“Uma” and “Hot Days” showing Junii ripping the verse in Full emcee mode. Its clearly obvious YES, she can work wonders with others and
not just on her own productions. The UMA THURMAN EP, has generated a solid buzz around her.  And recently she was chosen by Rapper
Reason of TDE Records (Kendrick Lamar, SZA, SiR) to appear on the remix of his hit “Flick It Up” thru the online contest #FlickItUp Challenge
which found her beating out thousands of up & comers to score the once in a lifetime opportunity. It is a Dream come true to do something with
the House that Kendrick built TDE .. And not one to slow down she kept the momentum byTaking things in another direction.. Junii gets
vocal on “All Real” an alternative R&B and organic Soul workout. Reminiscent of Mary J, Jill Scott vocally, with a dose of Floetry
and The Internet to set the vibe and mood..in addition to “OUTOFHERE” & “LONG DRIVE” , she is on a tear release consecutive singles
all leading up the release of a full dual debut solo EPs in the Spring . As for Better In Black, Junii is not letting the creation fall by the wayside.
She linked up with fellow Detroit emcee Nappi Devi, who if we didn’t know better, is Junii in male form. They more than compliment each other
as rappers, but even a vocalists and writers. Making for the return of Better In Black to be an all out assault for the listener…2020 will go down
as The year of  Junii. Dropping two EPs plus the Better In Black Resurrection EP, She currently has the singles “outofhere” and “Long Drive”
released independently from the “If Tomorrow Never comes” in April EP.. And “ALL REAL” and the NEW SINGLE “LET ME KNOW” a
more Neo Soul driven groove .. AND NOW THE FULL EP “Don’t Stand Too Close Vol. 1#  .IS HERE!! “DON’T STAND TOO CLOSE VOL. 1”
