Zeke Avery – Henny Talk: Keeping Hip Hop Lit

Zeke Avery may very well be the future of Hip Hop. His latest track Henny Talk is on fire & taking the scene by storm.

His debut track which was released earlier this year is pounding, resonant, pure dirty R&B Hip Hop, not many artists can achieve this level of flow in their tracks. Yet the Connecticut based Rapper & Song Writer infuses such passion within the sound it’s impossible not to be encapsulated by the infectious tone. It’s a euphoric hyped beat that has been expertly produced.

It’s about time that Zeke Avery took centre stage after ghost writing for other artists. Even though this track is essentially about being minted and getting wasted. It still captivated me through the charismatic lyrical flow. If any rapper deserves to get wasted on Hennessy, it’s Avery. He’s developed an impeccable style based on his influences which include Rakim, Nas, & DMX. His sound is a cacophony of versatility.

Avery dropped his first ever single, back in December 2016, new music is constantly in demand from his fans, and there is little wonder why, if you like harsh paced R&B; this track is for you.

Dream-Rap? Is That Even A Thing?

Even with the amount of new music being made every day, with sheer weight of collective imaginations, the genre splicing experiments, the fusing and fusion of styles Garrison Carver seems to be on to something new here. Yes, there is a trippy trap beat, a cool R&B vibe and a rap delivery but that is then cocooned in something totally unexpected. Around these more expected elements he wraps a dream-pop haze, chilled psychedelia and electronic washes.

It’s confusing, but experience tells us that is a good thing, expectations are made to be subverted, rules are made to be broken and new musical horizons are their to be explored and DD does all of those things and more. Blissed out hip-hop? Ethereal R&B? Dream-rap? Are those even a thing? The fact that you have to invent whole new genres to put the music in is an indication of just how original this music is and how singular and lateral Garrison Carver’s thinking is.

Shaded Profit – I’m Coming Home: Hip Hop At Its Cuddliest

Shaded Profit dropped his new track I’m Coming Home just 10 days ago. This Hip Hop & Rap was well influenced by his home town on the Bronx. He’s no Baller attempting to adopt some grandiose Gin and Juice persona. No, the talented solo artists music is influenced by his awkward experiences as a child as he struggled with his self-proclaimed Nerd persona. To be honest it was just nice to hear a rap artist that had respect for women.

To put it lightly Shaded Profit is adorable and so is his sound which mixes contemporary pop with lyrics that are actually a pleasure to listen to that offer endless introspective poetry. I’m Coming Home is dedicated to the men and women in the Armed Forces, it’s probably the best Hip Hop track of it’s genre since Eminem brought out Toy Soldiers. He takes a tragic subject and puts his lyrics against a traditional upbeat Hip Hop track that take away the gravity of emotion and just immerses you in the music.

If you head on over to Shaded Profit’s website you can download his all of his latest tracks off his Outsider album now!

The Wryters Drop Their Flammable New Track ‘I’m on Fire’

The Wryters don’t need any formal introduction to this Hip Hop heavy Californian rap duo to true Rap Fans, they’ve got a back catalogue of tracks that will have you hooked for hours.

There are no shortages of Rap acts dominating California, but The Wryters have the ability to stand out in an over-crowded scene. With their self-proclaimed old-style flow and their modern punchy bass, it’s a sound that is definitely not to be missed.

Their music bounces between seductive, humorous and testosterone pumped, but their new track On Fire definitely caught our attention; with its super catchy chorus it infuses you with up-beat cacophonies of heavy swag sound. What really made this track stand out was the wrenching energy beyond the realist lyrics. They refer to all of the shootings at the clubs with their smooth style which stamps authority with over their hard sound. Their attitude is refreshingly honest raw and powerful. Their playful attitude makes an awesomely upbeat track.

My only criticism that the track  at 2:07  minutes long wasn’t long enough just as you were immersed within the pounding, perfectly polished packed full of bass it fades out, demanding you hit reply.

Sherwood Rahming Tells Us All About His High School Crush In Laid Back Tune “The One That Got Away”

Sherwood Rahming is an upcoming hip-hop talent from the Bahamas fusing straight forward lyrics and themes with a soulful vibe and laid back groove. In his song “The One That Got Away” he in fact freely expresses his feelings for his high school crush through lyrics which a lot of people can relate to. But writing passionate thematic material is not Sherwood’s only forte. With jazzy trumpet and guitar lines flowing throughout the instrumental basis of the song a cool and natural aspect is created. Apart from this, the lyrics are also expressed in a light way which subtly and gracefully brings out the humorous aspect behind the theme.

With evident influences from the greats of Neo Soul Sherwood Rahming’s sound in “The One That Got Away” explores mellow relaxed bass grooves, natural guitar lines, sporadic delicate piano tones and a deep warm voice that matter of factly delivers the lyrics with a relaxed tone. All these elements culminate in an organic sound that is both enjoyable and quite interesting, showcasing Sherwood’s musical capabilities and desire to celebrate love even in its simplest and most natural forms while raising his listener’s vibrations to a higher level. This young upcoming talent is definitely one to keep an eye out for!

Nick Notes Releases UK Grime Track ‘See Me Comin’

Nick Notes is a driven, charismatic and passionate hip-hop artist, often compared to major rappers the likes of J Cole, Jay Z or Nas, just to mention a few.

His recent studio single, See Me Comin, is a perfect example of Nick’s lyrical prowess and wide-ranging vocal tone. This track showcase a really kaleidoscopic take on hip-hop, with trap accents and massive beats. The song is also influenced by Grime, with a distinctive UK rap flavor.

One of the things that I enjoy the most about this track is certainly that sensation of the arrangement and the production acting like a very solid “glue”: The beat and the melody are perfectly intertwined, acting as an amazing outlet for Nick’s unique vocals. This song has everything you might want from a great hip-hop track: a tight groove, lush and open melodies, analog-sounding samples; a steady lyrical flow and hooks to die for.
