Charlotte emcee Reed returns with the excellent new conscious Hip Hop EP ‘berri boi’

Reed returns with the excellent new conscious Hip Hop EP that strikes up the standard and it’s called ‘berri boi‘.

Released through Space Station Records, this is a fine release that is different from all the wack emcee’s that glorify crime and violence. This is proper Hip Hop and has been carefully crafted for our souls to enjoy. This is all about life, growing up with no money and just trying to survive this wild world. The vocals are crisp like a tasty apple, the beat crunches in your ears and you feel healthy after listening to this quality EP.

My standout tracks here are without doubt ‘Flexberri‘ and ‘Wow‘. I love the beat and the flow is so vivid on these two songs especially in my eyes. His storytelling style is a pleasure to consume and this is the best Hip Hop EP I’ve heard for some time. I love how his energy is so chilled yet his is straight forward with the content. This is all about how crazy the world is and ‘berri boi‘ from Reed is a tasty treat for our ears.

Samy raps about making it big in ‘Make It’

Samy is a French, Algerian and Dutch artist in Toronto who is here with his new track called ‘Make It‘.

This is all about making it in the crazy music world and reaching your dreams. You dream of being on playlists all over the world and getting your music out there. Failure is not an option here, only making it all the way upwards. You know that you can get up there as the music is quality, you just need a small but loyal team to help you get there.

With succulent piano beats at the start, this is a wonderful song to get you in the mood for success. This is dream-life and also reflects about past hero’s in music that you used to look up to. That feeling has gone as you have worked out they are fake. You dream differently now and are fully focused.

I love the vocals here and the chorus is meshed well with different sounds, this is a unique track with substance. Samy will make it and this song shows his quality. ‘Make It‘ is for all those who believe in their talent and really want it.

He returns with this new release and shows a growing wordsmith who is very confident in his abilities. He sets the mood here on this one and is worried that a girl wants to tie him down.

Nico Collu Smashes The Monolithic Task of Recording 8 Angelic Indie Rap Tracks in Just 16 Days

Maybe I’m just a sucker for a Copenhagen accent, but damn Nico Collu’s sensational masterpiece Harmony featuring Sebastian stole a little bit of my soul before the track even faded out. I’ll try not to fangirl all over this review. But how can you not fall in love with a mix angelically soaring acoustic guitar with an almost twee Rap flow and some sweet Indie Pop vocals?!

Harmony was just one of the tracks released as part of the stunning artists latest album where he pushed his creative boundaries and committed to creating 8 tracks in just 16 days. Contemplating how he was able to orchestrate such a masterpiece of an album in such a short space of time almost leaves me speechless, but what I will say is check out Harmony, along with the rest of Nico Collu’s album on SoundCloud using the link below:
