‘Subliminal Messages’ finds GiftedCuddo and Mari in marvelously mysterious form

Ohio must be one of the most underrated music hubs in the world. Cleveland emcee GiftedCuddo brings the incredible talent of Mari to join him on ‘Subliminal Messages‘ and this is the voice for the misunderstood. A track that sways all the way, you feel inspired and can’t help but like the lyrical skill level that reaches the temperature needed to catch a tan.

Subliminal Messages are any sensory stimuli below an individual’s threshold for conscious perception.

With that in mind, we now have a feel for what this brand new and rather mysteriously brilliant Hip Hop track is all about. With an undertone that needs lots of unwrapping like a much-anticipated Christmas present, this is a fine beat that draws you in. The vocals are so sultry and the bars are wrapped together like an old pro.

My entire purpose for making music is to inspire people to be the absolute best they can be in life, to live life to the fullest, be positive, love yourself, and enjoy every moment of this experience.”- GiftedCuddo

Taken off the new EP called ‘Xild‘, this is a track that has lots of creativity and a beat that puts a smile on your dial. This is that sunglasses type of music to turn up while you cruising around with your friends. It is so seducing and you can help but sway along to this smooth lyrics, that are shaved so close you might need a new barber.

GiftedCuddo has such a gift with words and his excellent track ‘Subliminal Messages‘ is such a fantastic Hip Hop effort and Mari only adds to the brilliance here. With so many wannabe rappers carrying on about topics that add zero value to the world, this is a track about the way you portray yourself and how we can get our message across with some practice and confidence. A life lesson in a song is always a pleasant surprise and this hits the stomach just right.

Chicago’s Chandler Joshua sends deep message with ”Who Are You?”

Who are you really inside? Do you look at the mirror and not like what you see? This is an age old problem that has engulfed our world. With Social Media dominating our lives, self-love and mental health is even more vital these days. You need to love yourself in a humble manner to fully love someone else.

”This song is about someone who hates who they see in the mirror, someone who recognizes that they are no one, and tries to convince themselves that it does not bother them, when it is one of the most overwhelming things in their life.”- Chandler Joshua

Who Are You?” from Chandler Joshua is a sad song. No question. This is an artist that is in pain as he does not like what he sees and is trying to convince himself that it doesn’t bother him but it does. The vibe is deep and meaningful and let’s hope this song helps him grab out of the hole that he is in. Let’s hope this young Chicago artist is able to go outside more and meet that special soul that helps him. He shows promise with his music and it will be interesting to see what kind of style he puts out next.

You are someone Chandler. We believe in you.
