Platune has dropped their fiery flawless Rap hit “The Assassin”

Philadelphia-based Rap artist Platune has just dropped their debut EP “Enter the Cave” featuring the colossal track “The Assassin”. Any fans of Wu-Tang Clan are going to want to hear the flawlessly fiery release.

Everything is on point in the Assassin. The way Platune’s snappy Rap bars collide against the smooth grind of the Old School instrumentals, the atmospheric layers which pull you deeper into the beguiling mix and the laceratingly sharp lyrics which offer a straight-up attack on the ludicrous state of our society.

By starting off with a sample affirming that all is vanity and illusion, the unfaltering tone for the track is set and it sticks until the dark, eerie, convictive track fades to a close. I honestly can’t remember the last time I heard so much visceral conviction in any track. Platune is exactly the kind of Rap artist we need on the airwaves right now.

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!
