This is the story about not wanting to run away from the carnage again, being profiled has had its time and needs to finally end for good — and we need radical reform to happen fast — before more lives are lost for no reason. This is the call for it all to flip into a new world, as he is tired of the unnecessary hate and running away from it all.

He sings with such purpose on this incredible anthem, each word is felt with such sadness in your heart as you pray and hope that things will get better quickly. The cinematic production takes you to a place where you are sitting up above watching the madness unfold, as you wish you could have the power to wash away the hate and replace it with only love and hugs.

Stressin‘ from the magnificent talent of Tre. Charles is a story about how tough if can be being a black man in America, with all the divisiveness and the clearly wrong systems locked into all facets of society, that need to be changed immediately so that its citizens feel free and fairly treated. We will find a way to help the world be better. We must be better.

Showing how it should be done: Kelvin D’artegnan drops top shelf Hip Hop single ‘Gimme Dat’

Kelvin D’artegnan is back with his undeniable quality on the passion-filled Hip Hop laced single ‘Gimme Dat‘.

After being forever-inspired by his father playing old school Hip Hop records in the house while growing up, that true love for proper music was firmly entrenched, deep inside his body and has stayed there ever since. The experienced podcaster, producer, composer and emcee was born in Warner Robins, Georgia and grew up in Prattville, Alabama where his passion for performing live only blossomed from there.

Right now, he is worldwide where his music is only growing day by day as he took time to build the foundations, and that core is so strong, he feels like he can only go upwards and never look back.

After dealing with multiple losses of his recorded music due to hard-drive issues, he never gave up and is now flourishing whilst doing what he loves. When you listen to him rap, you can feel the true realness and passion of a man that is a deep soul who respects the old school feel of a magnificent genre, that has sadly been watered down by so many narrow-minded rappers. Thankfully, he shows us what that true Hip Hop should sound like and lays down a barrage of clever lyrics and a busty bass production that will have you sweating in delight.

He feels like he has made it and now the next step is here. While so many others only want and won’t give, this story of being humble and working hard is a great example to the kids out there. With so many fake role models that flash in the pan and are soon washed down the drain due to their obvious shortcomings, this is an emcee who raps with skills that are due to many hours of perfecting them, when the days might of seemed dark but now the lights are on so bright, you will need UV-tinted sunglasses to fully enjoy this music.

Gimme Dat‘ from the multi-skilled Kelvin D’artegnan shows us that if you want it bad enough, you will go to great lengths to achieve your goals. Keeping it real to those you care about and meet in life, is the only way forward in this wild world.
