Nature – Correction: Lyrically Charged Progressive Hip Hop

Nature

Orlando-based Hip Hop artist Nature has recently dropped their lyrically-charged experimentally fresh standout single “Correction”.

If you didn’t feel passionate about the BLM movement before hitting play on Correction, you will after the progressive track has faded to a close. Correction kicks off with archaic hazy tones before the rattle of the Trap beats dominate the mix and creates a solid platform for Nature’s bars.

Expect clean and crisp beats with rapid-fire Rap delivery which leaves you hooked on every syllable in Nature’s verses as the track starts. But as Correction progresses, the soundscape drops in tempo making Nature’s lyrics even more resonating.

With lines like “I’m terrified someone wants to end me” after a lyrical attack on the vicious pious prejudiced minds who reinforce systematic racial oppression, Correction hits insanely hard.

Justin Thomas has released their compassion-invoking Americana Country single “Just Let Me Breathe”

Justin Thomas’ latest Americana Country single “Just Let Me Breathe” is a metaphorical masterpiece. After a three-year stint in releases, the American artist found inspiration in injustice. The incident of George Floyd’s death was used to illustrate the suffocating impact of systematic racial oppression.

Naturally, Just Let Me Breathe had a compassion-invoking resounding effect. Yes, the slightly psychedelically infused, angular guitar licks were absorbing and awe-inspiring. Yet, Justin Thomas’ compelling vocal style along with their ability to guide you into a contemplative empathetic state is why you’ll never forget Just Let Me Breathe.

We hope to hear plenty more from Justin Thomas in 2020 and beyond. Tracks such as Just Let Me Breathe are worth their weight in aural gold.

Just Let Me Breathe is available to stream via Soundcloud.

For more info head over to the artist’s official website.

Produced perfectly by Manny Manhattan this song will stand the test of time. The calls for police reform have grown so loud that something has to change. Let us all stand together, work in unison and change will happen. This is real Hop Hop that has been built out of the current time and has created a new movement of music.

Mike Cambridge has made his point and now it is time for the world to be a better place. No one should feel unsafe in this world because of their skin. Let’s make a better world together.
