After a tumultuous impact throughout 2018 with the success of his debut album “4 So LongPontiac’s Kid Swoop is back for another round. Letting off a brand new eight record effort “Little Man, Running Wild” has the bar raiser embracing a new chapter in his rise. From start to finish the EP carries it weight in audible gold, including one of my favorite records of the year so far in the closer “Tribulations” feat Dot2X, Sin Crawford, & Castro. I will have my full review here at DetroitRap.com soon, in the meantime on this Valentine’s Day forget the flowers – buy your loved one the latest Kid Swoop project, stay home, & enjoy the sounds of “Little Man, Running Wild“.  On top of taking in the new EP new visuals have arrived as an extra treat for #Swoopnation fans with “Don’t Pick Up The Phone” starring Deanna Patch.

That’s not all! We had a chance to hear a little bit of the story behind “Little Man, Running Wild” from the source himself! Here is Kid Swoop giving us an explanation of the latest project in his own words.

“It honestly feel like May 4th, 2018 all over again. Little Man, Running Wild is yet again another celebration and milestone for SwoopNation and I! They really motivated me during the whole creative process, due to how much shade and negativity was being thrown at me by my own city. I overly thank them for constantly tunneling my vision upon the greater prize. Honestly, that’s where the title and cover art came from, being the underdog since a jit led to me running wild seeking for answers, support, love and courage. I’m proud to say SwoopNation led the race and February 14th, 2019 will be the epic finish line of Fury! Don’t just Buy/Stream Little Man, Running Wild take heave to the free game I’m applying.”

ALLiTiZ & Beware - Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark

Originally dropping in 2018 here is a project that is resurfacing as a movie of the same title approaches later this year. Forget the upcoming movie though, this three-piece storytelling lyrical endeavor hasn’t lost any luster since the original release.  Together emcee ALLiTiZ alongside producer Beware a creepy story marathon that has the two complimenting each other’s abilities in pristine fashion is crafted. Whether giving you the creeps on “Room for One More” or the ominous vibes of “The Green Ribbon” all three of these records offer something different but fitting as a whole. ALLiTiZ impresses with his delivery that has you listening intent on uncovering every detail of the stories he scripts. The team up with Beware is a welcome combination and “Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark” might just have you begging for a sequel.

AGiLE SOCiETY X GREG BEARD- JUST FOR YOU

I was lucky enough to get to witness some of the fine-tuning of this greatness right before my eyes at Studio 221B in Oak Park, MI a couple of months back & now I’m happy to be able to share the final results. Those results pack a five-song funky homage to the late great Prince built from “For You“.  I thoroughly enjoyed the progression/arrangement of “Just For You” and its short ride is over in a pinch after getting lost in the sounds of the project. A short ride that will have you hitting replay fairly quick I imagine. The shining star here is Greg Beard but the AGiLE SOCiETY family is here in full force with JRGotTheHiTS & BOOSTER playing a role amongst other collaborations. To top things off it’s available for free! Listen above or hit the link directly here: https://soundcloud.com/theagilesociety/sets/just-for-you

Alexis Allon – “Closer” EP

Alexis Allon - "Closer" EP

Sometimes recognizing “Starr” quality can be a daunting task, however with Alexis Allon you’ll start feeling the sky shine quite instantly as you press play on her brand new EP “Closer“. The Titan Records artist brandishes a powerful voice that carries its weight across a short but extremely fulfilling four record dosage that paints a vivid picture of Alexis’s capabilities.

Kicking off with one of my favorite records in the last few months is the single “Starr”  which has an infectious chorus that easily traps itself inside the space between your ears. Not only does the singing pull you in but Alexis Allon isn’t to be taken lightly on the microphone either. She squeezes in a fair amount of effective bars across “Closer“.

Keep Em” is a great example of those bars – in a more mellow record packed with jazzy vibes. “One thing that should be blatant is I’m here to make a statement‘… well statement made Alexis! The remainder of the EP carries forth the first half’s momentum. “Devotion” & the title track “Closer” are two short but sweet offerings that expand on the strengths of those before.

In closing “Closer” is a demonstrative effort that showcases Alexis Allon as a multi-talented artist who stands just as strong on her own as she does lending her vocal abilities amongst features such as her previous collaborations with Detroit legendary emcee Supa Emcee. The only thing you can ask for after finishing the EP is for more music, & without a doubt, “Closer” will stay in my rotation until that day comes.
