Whoah58 have just brought out a powerful track called ”BlacKKK Power”. Inspired by the Black Lives Movement and other frustrations with the music game, this is quite the statement.

Super Digital impress on Hip Hop fire track ”Go For Broke”

US Hip Hop act Super Digital send through a message to the whole galaxy with their latest smash single ”Go For Broke”. This is rugged and real Hip Hop that is inspired by how crazy life is.

Taken off the album that was 6 years in the making-”From The Boardroom Back To The Block”, this is a fantastic song that I really vibe with. I think it’s because ”Go For Broke” is a true story.

Poze has a Sotho lyrical prowess fused with his new found Western influences. Hailing from South Africa and he was born in Welkom in the dusty Free State. For music reasons, Poze is now based in Germiston, Gauteng. Known as the City of Gold, Johannesburg has a massive say in the African Hip Hop scene.

I like how he goes for it on the song and it’s very catchy. The chorus is bound to be sung loudly this coming summer in South Africa when venues can open up again.

Album review: Dazzle rips the chord with fantastic ”Kingship”

The UK emcee Dazzle returns to uplift his community with the powerfully Hip Hop/Reggae infused album ”Kingship”.

The London artist impresses mightily and starts in menacing mood with ”Already (Intro)”. This sets up the game and then it’s the Reggae soaked ”Everybody Talkin”. I really like the buzz on this one and it flows through the speaker to get me listening intently.

London” heads through the whole city and stories of his life in the majestic city. This has a grimy UK feel to it and this is probably my favorite track. ”Foolish” is next up and this starts with some wonderful female vocals that I would like to find out more about. Dazzle soon swoops in and pulls out his bars that sinks through the track.

The album is complemented by the remaining tracks ”In My Head”, ”Special”, ”Roll Up”, ”Dangerous”, ”Real”, ”Just Another Day”, ”Know Now” and the remix for ”Immortal”. I enjoyed ”Special” the most here as it has a familiar sound and the song is one to groove with all might.

Dazzle certainly knows how to put on a show and this album is a highly skilled produced effort that gets me in the mood. This is one of the UK’s shining lights in the Hip Hop scene.

Platune has dropped their fiery flawless Rap hit “The Assassin”

Philadelphia-based Rap artist Platune has just dropped their debut EP “Enter the Cave” featuring the colossal track “The Assassin”. Any fans of Wu-Tang Clan are going to want to hear the flawlessly fiery release.

Everything is on point in the Assassin. The way Platune’s snappy Rap bars collide against the smooth grind of the Old School instrumentals, the atmospheric layers which pull you deeper into the beguiling mix and the laceratingly sharp lyrics which offer a straight-up attack on the ludicrous state of our society.

By starting off with a sample affirming that all is vanity and illusion, the unfaltering tone for the track is set and it sticks until the dark, eerie, convictive track fades to a close. I honestly can’t remember the last time I heard so much visceral conviction in any track. Platune is exactly the kind of Rap artist we need on the airwaves right now.

NYC’s Cream Galore drops new Hip Hop single called ”Boss Up”

New York rapper Cream Galore is a fairly new artist on the scene as he has only been active for 2 months. He has brought out three tracks so far. These are ”Heights”, ”Broke to Riches” and now he tees off with the reflective ”Boss Up”.

Boss Up” is a track all about wanting to get paid and not be broke any further. Mr Cream is tired of being broke as he feels like he is a boss in the game. He wants respect now and isn’t willing to wait for much longer. For such a new artist I’m sure his time will come. I hope he starts pushing his social media and music links to gain more buzz. The talent flow-wise is definitely there and I like the style that he has.

Broke to Riches” is a new Hip Hop track with a nice bounce to it. This New York rapper will surely fine tune his skills and this is a name to watch.
