Louisiana Hip Hop

Jay Rick$ proves that there is nothing sweeter than ‘Honesty’ in his latest single.

Jay Rick$ delivers modern island vibes in his hip hop single, Honesty, which lyrically laments the ever-growing trend of interpersonal dishonesty. The sun-kissed midtempo single is taken from his soulful RnB-infused EP, Rick$ism, where the Louisiana-based artist’s musicianship shines brighter than ever before.

One of the hardest lessons that life delivers is never to underestimate how low people will go when it comes to deception. Thankfully, Jay Rick$ has the soul to bring you right back up in this silver lining of a track. If there was any real justification for the phrase ‘it’s a vibe’, it’s this soul-steeped release.

Honesty is now available to stream on SoundCloud.

Rap Artist, Retro Pak Delivers Louisiana Flavour in Their Latest Single ‘Ohhhh I Like It’

If you like your Hip Hop served with high vibes and old school grooves, delve into Retro Pak’s standout single, ‘Ohhhh I Like It’. It’s packed with Louisiana flavour and brought to life by the artist’s motivation to bring infectiously energetic attitude to the airwaves.

Under the influence of 2Pac, Ludacris, Twista, and Missy Elliot, Retro Pak creates fresh tracks in which the roots of hip hop can blossom. Given that hip hop which flows with galvanising beats is more essential than ever, we can’t under-express how essential artists, such as Retro Pak are.

The track is perfectly paired with a music video which will throw you right back to when workout VHS tapes were all the rage. In the age of Tik Tok, that’s more refreshing than it should be.

You can check out the official video to Retro Pak’s latest single by heading over to YouTube.
