BagDadLean & Slutty Jordie rip the mic on the new Hip Hop single ‘Jackwoods’

BagDadLean & Slutty Jordie give us a life lesson about ladies and 420 here on their new Hip Hop track called ‘Jackwoods‘.

BagDadLean is a young Midwest artist that is very versatile as he can rap and switch it up to an R&B number all in the same song. This is a rare skill that is often not done well. He does however impress on this new track that is only his 2nd even release on Spotify. With lots of hunger and aspirations to be as massive as Drake, this is an ambitious emcee and singer with big dreams. I love this confidence, going for the top is the way forward.

This is all about being careful with the ladies. You need to find a loyal lady otherwise if you end up with the wrong one, she will suck your bank account dry and then vanish like the cleaning product. The beat is so laid back and stoner style, with the deep voices and you feel the smoke filled energy in the air.

BagDadLean & Slutty Jordie show us their skill set on the new ‘Jackwoods‘ single that is a winner in the Hip Hop playlists all over the world. If they can keep consistent and focus on getting their music out there, there is a chance they could make it massive.

Ttab kicks off with an artfully arrestive prelude which will ensure that you’re well and truly transfixed by the time Arcenio Cayetano’s high-vibe unapologetically salacious bars kick in.

Aleeus storms in hard with strong video ”Geronimo” feat. Universal Joe

There comes a time when you get sick of talk and are just keen to show that you are grinding it the best way. While other cats talk and talk, you are getting it done.

The new single called ”Geronimo‘ from Aleeus feat. Universal Joe is taken off 2020’s ”Injured Reserve” which sounds like a great way to describe the year to me. From rapping since he was 13 and having his Dad help him put out his first single, Aleeus has been on a tear later with lots of new music and ever-improving rhymes.

This is heavy stuff from the Ohio rapper and he brings along Universal Joe for this one and the featured is well done too. They are busy building at the moment and stacking up all the opportunities while others just talk. 2020 is the year to reboot and change the way you do things. ”Geronimo” does that and this is a top Hop Hop song that is full of tight beats and lyrical ability.

Head to YouTube for this video and more.
