Lyrical assassin Sharif Hassan takes on gold digger culture with ‘Facetime’.

Harlem, New York-hailing rap artist Sharif Hassan points out the pitfalls in Millennial living in their soulful yet savage debut album, ‘Black Millennial’.

You scarcely need his bio to tell you that he started as a slam poet; each line in the standout track, Facetime, is practically a lyrical assassination for anyone with the audacity to buy into gold digger culture. Many rap artists may have enabled the culture by glamorising it, but Sharif Hassan paints a gritty portrait of just how insidious it is. With the dubstep style beats in place of the usual flat 808s, this high vibe vindicating track is well worth consideration for your summer hip hop playlists.

NYC’s Cream Galore drops new Hip Hop single called ”Boss Up”

New York rapper Cream Galore is a fairly new artist on the scene as he has only been active for 2 months. He has brought out three tracks so far. These are ”Heights”, ”Broke to Riches” and now he tees off with the reflective ”Boss Up”.

Boss Up” is a track all about wanting to get paid and not be broke any further. Mr Cream is tired of being broke as he feels like he is a boss in the game. He wants respect now and isn’t willing to wait for much longer. For such a new artist I’m sure his time will come. I hope he starts pushing his social media and music links to gain more buzz. The talent flow-wise is definitely there and I like the style that he has.

Broke to Riches” is a new Hip Hop track with a nice bounce to it. This New York rapper will surely fine tune his skills and this is a name to watch.
