Atlanta Rapper/Producer ‘Yahchi B’ drops visuals for his self-assured‘’Quarantine Freestyle’

‘’I’m not your boyfriend, bae or anything in between.’’ Sending a message to the ladies in his life, ‘Yahchi B’ is quite fine with being single right now as he is on a quest for global respect and recognition. 

Heavily influenced by Nas, Outkast, Tupac, Rakim, Eminem, and Kanye West, you can feel the old school style in his lyrical delivery. He mixes in his own new school style while on the mic and the results are quite impressive.

Formerly from the Bronx in New York, ‘Yahchi B’ made the move from his roots a few years ago and this change seems to have paid off. New York is a great city but it is easy to get lost in the suffocating environment of NYC Hip Hop. His style fits the more relaxed but music-crazy South USA.

In the Hip Hop game since 2012, this veteran rapper & self-produced artist has amassed quite a good following since his debut. A very confident Emcee, his flow is impressive, the beat real fly and with a summer time/chill by the pool with your bikini or swim shorts on energy to it.

ZeNith releases Rap track Diamonds ft SADI

Boston-based rap duo ZeNith has dropped their recent track ‘Diamond’ ft SADI a Rap and R&B infused single.

Pulling inspirations from Kendrick Lamar, talking about important topics to do with mental health, upbringing, love through their talent of creating meaningful lyrics as they turn it into their own style through their way of Rap. It’s a fairly short track, but you do get a taste of what they have to offer in that time, the pulsing beat that comes through the vocals as the lyrics are repeated in the background in a more distorted deep tone.

Incorporating the sound effect of a record being mixed, and the flow of the variety of sounds that intertwine into the overall rhythm of the track, the vocals are very much keeping it at that low-pitch, keeping it honest and explicit and having that fast pace to it keeping it engaging and upbeat.

If R&B is your thing and you’re looking for new music to listen to be sure to check this one out by ZeNith.

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.

A&R Factory Present: Roberto Horns

Using social media and streaming sites to his advantage for some time now, singer and producer Roberto Horns is on the cusp of his breakthrough moment.

The singer already released his first album, Die in Peace, in 2016. But he has now returned with yet another thought provoking but catchy song in the form of Porn.

It’s only natural for a singer who was birthed from the Internet to sing about something else the Internet has given us, but Porn is anything but a lewd and crude ode to Horns’ sordid browser history.

With the trumpets giving a real live music feeling to the song, Horns moans about his string of meaningless one-night stands as he wishes he had something more substantial.

A song like this needs a singer who oozes charisma and Horns definitely does that throughout. At one point he even begins to rap assuring the listener that despite his promiscuous nature, deep down he is a good guy.

It’s that same charisma and charm that will convince listeners to play this song over and again because at it’s core, it’s funny. And considering the state the world is currently in right now everyone could with a good laugh.

A&R Factory Present: Low Country Kingdom

Think Outkast meets Chromeo meets porn in space. They’ve been featured on A&E Networks, KickKickSnare, SFChronicle.com, and Satan’s Top 50 Tracks For Roadtrippin’ With Your Buds.

Scott [rap, lead guitar] met Adam [keytar, producer] at the University of Pennsylvania when he kicked him out of a frat party — but that’s water under the bridge. Some time later in San Francisco, they wrote and recorded their debut album (Big Like China), which ranges widely from heavy beat-driven rap anthems [Manifest Destiny] to soulful pop hits [Mmm Mmm Mmm, Another Ordinary Day] to Kanye-esque industrial orchestral instrumentals, and everything in between.

Meanwhile, Suz [co-lead vocals] was studying music at S.F. State when she stumbled upon an intriguing craigslist ad for a “hypersexual electrosoul vocalist with a heart of gold” and submitted some vocal samples. A month later, LCK became a trio.

Meanwhile, Lang [co-lead vocals] was singing classics aboard a Carnival cruise line in the South Pacific. Eventually he ported near San Francisco, and, as chance would have it, LCK was playing a gig at Amnesia SF. Adam and Lang were old high school buddies, so Adam invited him on stage with LCK as a guest vocalist for a few tunes. He set the storied venue aflame with magnificent vocal arpeggios, and quit his job the next day.

Now a quartet, the squad rages on, writing, recording, and producing music and video content from their house in Hancock Park, Los Angeles, California (yes, they all live together, eat together, cook together, make love together). Don’t miss what this eccentric team puts out next…
