Cat got your tongue: Orlando’s Yaqub Howell burns the fakes and moves onto the ‘Ballin’ mentality

Taken off his latest raw seven-track release called ‘Goat Talk II‘, Yaqub Howell shows us his stylish rhymes on the new single ‘Ballin‘.

Yaqub Howell is an emerging Orlando, Florida emcee who raps about real-life experiences surviving this world full of flashy fakes, that take what they can and don’t give anything back. He has moved on from worrying about those selfish former friends and only wants to build new bridges with like-minded humans, who are ready to work together as one.

With furiously flame-lit bars about been taken for a tame kitty cat when he is actually a wild lion, you can feel the pulsating energy filling his ever-growing bones, as this scissor-sharp song build up into a powerful mountain of strength, that can’t ever be underestimated.

His passionate flows streams rapidly through the gushing waterfall and quickly drowns out any fake haters that claimed to be real friends but are actually the devil in disguise.

Ballin‘ from flourishing Orlando rapper Yaqub Howell, is a strong statement to all those that casually spoke bad about him when first started out and have now flipped the switch, but have come when the lights are off and the party is over. He has gleefully moved onto bigger and better things, with the treacherous fools left smelling the dust-filled gas fumes.

That moment when you realize your value takes a while to come, but when it does, you know deep in your soul that those former friends that took your kindness for weakness, just don’t get it and never will. Real sees real eventually.

Clownin’ from Las Vegas multi-skilled singer/producer/emcee Demyia shows us her unique greatness

Clownin‘ from Las Vegas multi-skilled singer/producer/emcee Demyia (duh-MY-uh) shows us her unique greatness with her clever lyrics, style and artistry.

When you live in a world full of fake copycats that try and greedily take all the milk for themselves, to hear an original musician sprinkle this delicious goodness all over our ears- is a true blessing.

Their words don’t match up to their actions and you feel like they are taking you for a ride. You love being with them and it feels so good but you can’t do this anymore. You just want them to yourself but get the feeling that they are just with you to take a break from their current relationship. You feel like they are messing you around and it needs to stop but you feel like they can do whatever they want with you.

Clownin’ is such a dope track and is so real with this story of forbidden love that feels so hot but is so wrong. This is the ultimate temptation that you love and hate- all at the same time that ultimately creates a toxic mix that will leave a soggy taste in your mouth. With a smooth voice that makes you smile, the vividly described raps blow the mind and the quality is so clear to see. This is a polished act that has a sense of humour and self-awareness, a rare gift that Demyia has in her armour.
