Shakes – Called Up: Atmospherically Convictive Hip Hop

If it has been a while since a Rap artist has made your jaw drop with their rhythmic vocal prowess, be prepared to feel a little gormless while listening to the bars in Called Up. Which is just one of the tracks which you will find on the up and coming Hip Hop artist Shakes’ debut EP “Fifteen Minutes”.

With the same relentless waxing lyrical flair as the likes of Eminem, you can’t help but find respect and adoration for Shakes. Meanwhile, the instrumentals make it all too easy for you to drink in the convictive bars, the beats may be minimalistic, but there’s no denying that they are alluringly efficacious all the same.

You can check out Called Up along with the rest of Shakes’ debut EP Fifteen Minutes for yourselves by heading over to apple music.

Seide flows in with the real life story of ‘De-Seide’ on debut release

Seide flows in with the real life story of ‘De-Seide‘. This is a packed-full of quality lyrics and a sound that gets you grooving.

This is music all about addictions and breakups to partying and everyday struggles. The music from this young artist is so relatable and his flow is tidy, the words are so relevant and the style is fantastic.

Fort Pierce, United States is the home of this terrific new school rapper with a trap-feel to this new release. He speaks on real topics and for this, he must be applauded. To often, rappers in this genre speak about bling, girls, cars and drugs. Not this fine emcee. He is self-aware and makes music to help others with their problems.

De-Seide‘ from Seide is a new school emcee with a big heart and a vibrant soul. This is a debut release that speaks volumes for the potential talent of this rising artist. He has decided what style of music he wants to make and the scary thing is that he is just getting started.
