Trick Trick drops a classic. “ELEMELEM” New Album

Published

on

The Big Homie Trick Trick. We tend to listen to and enjoy what we can relate to. The respect alone that Trick Trick has earned over his long career should motivate any fan of Detroit music young or old to give this new project a listen. If your under the age of 30 i encourage you to soak up all the game you can. “Cut It Out” brings truths to things we’ve thought but never questioned. If you grew up on the streets of Detroit you can’t help but see yourself in the lyrical display over the orchestrated musical bed that you could imagine the great Isaac Hayes lending a verse.

On ZiGGaTTa finds Trick Trick reflects back on where life was at a young age “Found Love in the art of hip hop cause it was Def, Run D and J gave me sumn to focus on”  When i tell you Scarface himself could not have touched Trick Trick on this track it’s no CAP. This is a must listen.

“What Part of the Game” features Bumpy Knuckles on one of the hottest tracks on the project. I immediately went to see who cooked this beat up. Maybe we will find out in a interview.  “There are Rules, We survive by following our Rules” The streets are out of control, pure chaos because we have gotten away from the CODE. Trick and Bumpy lace this track effortlessly.

Now what would a Trick Trick album be without the smoke records??? Aint shit changed as the OG comes with it featuring the Funk Doc himself “REDMAN” and West Coast Stone on “Who Got it” The smoove 2 step record “Im in love with Mary Jane” feat Ari Wryter” and what might be my personal favorite  “We Blow Dat Gas” feat Berner and Parlae.  Production will always catch my attention and when this track came on i was like “WHAT THE FUCK” I had to run it back before the verse even started cause i was hooked already. Then to see Trick Produced the Joint was a fist pump moment for a brother.

I’ve often heard people say “Trick aint got bars” well, he may not be your lyrical miracle emcee but Trick has never been slacking when it comes to the mic. And although what may be front and center when it comes to rap out of Detroit right now which is the sound of the streets  don’t think we cant rhyme circles around you, and have fun doing it at the same time. Trick has always embraced those who may be considered on the Hip Hop side of things from Jump.

Tracks Like Frontline feat artist like OMG FLu, Hydro, and Courtney Bell bring complex flow yet every word is understood, subject matter from grinding in the streets to finding Yah and inner peace.  “Champion” brings us the feel good Today was a good day vibe and all is well as you GET THESE LUXRY BARS from Marv Won, Ron Dance and Ro Spit aka 101.   Ant Beats bring us another one of our favorite beats on the album on the “My City D’ Shytt” feat Payroll, Street Lord Juan and Oba Rowland.  Trick always got that one thats full of energy and ready to bring a concert to its feet. (If you haven’t seen Trick Trick live your missing out) Fuccitup. The bars a hard and if you come from the Detroit dance era there is something in this track that will surely get you amp, Good Money and P-Dot bring it home on the joint.

Two more joints we got to mention not because they were our least favorite but we felt it was only right to end it with that WEST COAST VIBE (which really came from Detroit but that’s a discussion for another day) With joints feat WC on “Let me In” also feat D12’s Swifty Mcvay and Kuniva  and what i think can be a single around the country “Dis Bitch Movin” feat E-40   This joint goes HARD!!!!

Pay Homage to the OG Detroit’s own   TRICK TRICK

“Axel Foley” New Album by Killz

Published

on

By

“You can hear my pain in the verse,  im versed in the game.” Lines from the first song “Get Up” off the recently released AXEL FOLEY from Killz. There could not have been a better way to set the tone for this album. Jay Z could not have laid a better verse from one of his many classic albums.

“Axel Foley” finds Killz in the mecca of the desert Las Vegas. If any city can understand the mob mentality it takes to make it past 20 and not be dead, in prison or homeless like Detroit its Sin City. Get up has a ocean freeway drive vibe musically, yet i can also place myself in a foreign with the top peeled back doing 90 on Mt Rose. Yea you might Kill yourself!

This isnt a full in depth review. But more so a must listen with tracks like “Just Speak in” “Rearview” “We in This” and “My Own” for the commercial ear. Songs that give it to you lyrically from “Open Mic” to “Real Ones” “Mobbin” and a classic feature from Dog Pounds finest Kurupt on “We On” treat yourself to the Axel Foley experience from Killz

Go ahead and follow the link and got beat over the Head with the opening record from KRS ONE “WE RUN SHIT” feat DJ Eclipse on the cuts! Ok im sold as i look at the credits and notice a couple Michigan Goats on the project Swifty Mcvay and Jon Connor. So im like bet lets run this project.

Then the second song comes on with a hypnotizing track and the voice of MC Eiht with some guest work from Kurupt and we are sold already. To find your favorite Detroit artist on the project make sure you tap in with the joint “BRAVO” feat DJ Spice and NEMS along with Swifty. Stand For Something feat Jon Connor needs to be the title track for a future oscar nominated film. This song is produced and written to inspire emotion and thought. Check out the entire project at a streaming service near you!
