Casablanca the Gawd attacks systematic inequality in their dilligently façade-less single ‘Animosity’

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HxaTVy5xiTo&feature=emb_logo

Ahead of the release of their highly-anticipated forthcoming album, ‘Soon Before Winter’, Buffalo, NY-hailing Hip Hop artist Casablanca the Gawd released their façade-less gritty Hip Hop single ‘Animosity’.

The harrow of systematic inequality profoundly hits as Casablanca runs through their bars which take the gloss off the gangster lifestyle which far too many artists attempt to glamourise. With each syllable delivered, you’ll hear the vehemence towards the state of the socio-political climate which consistently leaves people unable to rise up from under-privilege.

It’s impossible not to find respect for Casablanca the Gawd and their tendency not to mask the pain which inspires their tracks with grandiosity or aggression. The raw emotion may not be easy to swallow, but the last thing the airwaves needs is another superficial sugared pill.

You can check out the official video to Animosity which dropped on November 4th via YouTube.

Nvmitsmarcel rises above the gloom with brilliant ‘Softlock’

Nvmitsmarcel is a 19 year old emcee from New Jersey who blazes in with his hot new street banger called ‘Softlock‘.

Nvmitsmarcel’s goal in music is to encapsulate that real New Jersey sound while being the most modest kid out here in the wild. He wants people to listen to his music and inspire through his message of life. A fine example to set in a world far too often overridden with fake celebs and divisive music.

Taken off full album ‘Far Yet Close‘, this is such fresh fly music that is like finding money in your cupboard behind some clothes. Winning feeling right? This is how I feel while listening to this fire new song from the young artist.

Softlock‘ is the brand new track from Nvmitsmarcel and this is a party all night bounce that hits the heights of future stardom. The music is too good. One of the highlights so far of a gloomy 2020.

”Cla$$ic” from Henny Holyfield is his breakthrough Hip Hop track

Indie emcee Henny Holyfield is from Fairfield, California and he reps his hood in style with ”Cla$$ic”.

Father, Chef, Emcee, Optimist. Life is meant to be enjoyed. That is the main message of Henny Holyfield’s music. He tells it how it is and we need to appreciate that. Fake rappers are slowly starting get it and musicians like this only amplify’s that notion.

Taken of his latest album called ”Clocked In”, this is a fire song that has a consistent flow that ultimately shows this artists mad skills. I like the Hopsin shout out too. After 500+ shows, this top shelf rapper shows his pen skills with a masterful performance where his experience shows with his vivid storytelling.

The Sacramento based rapper Henny Holyfield rolls in with ”Cla$$ic” that is designed to be played late at night while cruising around with friends. This is real Hip Hop that is not watered down. Long may this kind of music prevail.
