Throw away your saviour complex under the direction of 3HRE’s resounding RnB Hip Hop single ‘Save Me’

Up and coming US Rap artist 3HRE premiered the music video to their latest single ‘Save Me’ on December 15th, ‘mindful and conscious’ Hip Hop may be in trend right now, but 3HRE raised the bar with his conceptually perception shifting hit which has the capacity to seismically shift your attitude around salvation.

It allows you to see most of the people who claim to be drowning as people who waded into the water themselves. With the female vocals crying out for sanctity from themselves along with 3HRE’s Rap bars offering lyrical gold such as ‘Don’t put your trust in another human being because they will never save you’, describing Save Me as a powerful single seems like a criminal understatement.

The artist’s proclivity to lend inspiration from gritty and convictive artists such as Nas and Rakim along with optimism-inspiring Christian Hip Hop artists allows you to experience the best of both worlds. Additionally, save me is as stunning in sentiment as it is in sound.

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.

Mike Rovone – Always Here: Breaking Boombox Style

Always Here is pretty much the perfect song to capture Mike Rovone’s essence. The Hip Hop Rapper strives for world domination without the fame.

Has he accomplished his mission? I guess we’ll never know.

It’s such a rarity to see an artist to put their music before their notoriety, because that’s when you truly get to hear the true soul of an artist, which is exactly what you’re treated to in his mellow ensemble with Always Here. The track boldly spreads the message that depression is a villain, and that as a man of the people Mike Rovone offers a ray of light to listeners that are suffering.

The versatile US based artist Rap artist takes his influences from acts such as: Rakim, Redman, Dead Prez and Wu-Tang amongst others. Yet with such a richly diverse back catalogue of experimental sounds, it’s clear that boundaries are never a consideration when it comes to his music, which he tackles with humility.

Always Here is just one of the tracks from his latest album End of The Day which is now available to listen via Spotify:

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.

Tha Third I Releases Hip-Hop Track ‘Pushing Along’

They Don’t make’em like them anymore. This is exactly what I thought when I started listening to “Pushing Along”, the new exciting single release from Tha Third I. This amazing tracks embodies the gritty textures and lush power of great old school hip-hop. Everything in this mix is organic and spot-on, from the soulful guitar loops to the blanket of vinyl sound and the roomy drum beats.

The vocals are dry and natural, far from some of the over-processed flow of modern-day rap. There is a great sense of human feel to this song, which showcases an affinity with other genres such as jazz and old school R&B – if not in terms of sound, certainly in terms of feel.

If you enjoy the work of artists such as Erik B & Rakim, A Tribe Called Quest or Wu-Tang Clan, there is no way you will not absolutely enjoy this track!
