Skalla – Slow Grind

Published

on

Hailing from a city better known for its bankruptcy than its bosses, it’s no wonder why rapper and songwriter SkaLLa feels his neighborhood has a unique sound that needs to be heard, soon his upcoming single “Slow Grind” will showcase the real Detroit—the one where crooked cops parlay with hustlers and drug dealers, and everyday citizens fight for survival. “I’m bringing real originality, and I’m not fabricating anything I’m talking about, that why I know I’m relatable,” says SKalla. Despite the unforgiving news headlines, there’s beauty beneath the grime of Detroit.  It’s where SKalla first got his taste of the old school melodies that flooded through his grandmother’s home—music that was heavily influenced by the many talented artists that once strutted the now abandoned streets. It’s also where his love of R&B music began, as evidenced on records sampling classic tunes from artists such as Luther Vandross.

SkaLLa, began studying music and discovered a hidden talent in songwriting, helping to pen a few R&B songs for a local singer. He eventually landed in front of representatives from Jive Records, who were impressed by his knack for branding, as well as his blatantly honest lyricism. Realizing that his name was also a major part of his brand, he ditched the moniker of his youth and chose SkaLLa as an ode to his ability of combining his book smarts with that of the streets that he calls home. In a world where many rappers spew lyrics from ghostwriters, SKalla prides himself on writing his own music. The release of “Slow Grind” in Winter 2021 gives the seasoned rapper a new reason to boast, as he sets out to drop gems through personal stories of a boy going through trials and tribulations turning him into a man. He feels this project will encourage others to pursue better opportunities outside of their usual circumstances as he did.

“NOTE TO SELF” New album from MR CLFFNOTE: NEW MUSIC

Published

on

By

“Note to self”, the new project from Mr Cliffnote comes to us with the top notch graphic we come to expect from the multi talented artist.

The neatly-packaged eight-track album quickly touches on his affinity for
battle-style lyrics, but also his personal love for music, memories of family, and
nearly every emcee’s favorite topic: women.
Setting the early tone are back-to-back soul tinged tracks, produced by Crate
Digga. Both joints (“Godspeed” and “The Dirty Bomb”) introduce you to Mr.
Cliffnote’s ability to pen in your face lyrics with precise delivery. On the latter track,
he opens the second verse with, “This is your last chance/Save The Last Dance for
the last man standin’ in the avalanche, who never broke his battle stance”. Even in
album mode, he clearly doesn’t forget his roots in the battle circuit, which can be a
challenge for many emcees in general… but he makes the transition seamlessly.
The middle of the album moves on to some of the comedic but realistic side of
love with, “Hello Nurse”, thoughts of yesteryears on “The Melody”, clever
metaphoric phrasing of “Visit The D”, and an absolute radio ready DJ Dez produced
track entitled “When We’re Together”, putting Cliff’s vocal stylings on display.
However, the standouts of the album come at the end with the introspective “Live
On”, featuring Pierre Anthony (closing your eyes while listening to this song is
recommended) and the politically charged “Gunz”. A video for this track is
mandatory and it’s easily one of the most important songs in hip hop this entire year.
Most familiar with Mr. Cliffnote remember him giving verbal beatdowns to
opponents at open mics for years. But “Note To Self” isn’t just a play on this
Detroit-based emcee’s name. It’s also a reminder for the listener to take “notes” on
the mark he’s continuing to make on the genre and his motivation to push it forward.

Influential artist such as ROCKBOTTOM, Blade Icewood & TI played apart in Listening to ROCKBOTTOM was enough for me to fall in love music.    Influential artist such as ROCKBOTTOM, Blade Icewood & TI have paved the way and I began taking my talents more serious focusing on my music more seriously in 2015.  Since then I now have three mix tapes “TOUCHDOWN & FIELDGOALS”, “HSG HEADSHOTGANG” and “THE FACE OF DAVISON”.  Stay tuned as Plenty is definitely one to watch
