[VIDEO REVIEW] FONZO sets an aspirational example with ‘POWER OF YOUR MIND’.

There has been plenty of anticipation for activist and hip hop artist FONZO’s sophomore single after his debut single, ‘For the Kids’, dropped in 2020 as part of his ‘No More Kids in Cages’ campaign.

He hasn’t forgotten his social responsibility in his latest single, POWER OF YOUR MIND – quite the opposite. This time, he’s offering the listener the power to free themselves through a mix of lyricism grounded in reality and galvanising hip hop beats, produced by Yung Ricc, that throwback to the roots of old school hip hop while injecting a fair amount of adrenaline into them. The artist’s love of old school funk found its way into the affably fiery release, yet, POWER OF YOUR MIND lacks none of the conviction of hard-hitting hustler hip hop.

From sending warnings about fake friends to finding clever ways to reminding the listener that progress is made one step at a time, you’ll quickly recognise that FONZO is an artist worth listening to.

The official video encapsulates everything that FONZO is about, it hammers home the importance of community and mentorship; there’s little in use of self-improvement if you’re not prepared to share your wisdom and positive energy; once you start sharing it, you’ll see how infectious it is.

POWER OF YOUR MIND is the second single released from FONZO’s debut album High Gravity; keep him on your radar for when it drops via Facebook.

The official video for POWER OF YOUR MIND released on March 26th. You can check it out for yourselves by heading over to YouTube.

Quali-T – Déjà Vu: A Rhythmically Fresh Summer Hip Hop Playlist Essential

Breaking Hip Hop artist Quali-T dropped the official music video to his single Déjà Vu in April 2020, if you missed out on the release, it’s our pleasure to introduce you to the smooth exotically-crafted mix.

There may have been plenty of fresh new Summer Hip Hop drops this year, but Quali-T made sure that his stood out from the rest by looking outside of monocultural Hip Hop for rhythmic inspiration. With jazzy and Eastern vibes weaving between the Trap beats, Déjà Vu is practically hypnotic instrumentally. When it comes to the Rap bars, Quali-T stamps them down with captivating authority.

Déjà Vu may be short and sweet, but by the time it fades out, you’ll have enjoyed 2:27 minutes of pure groove, attitude and urban aural escapism.

You can check out the official video to Quali-T’s single Déjà vu for yourselves by heading over to YouTube.
