United Front :: ‘Face Facts’ With SniperShot’s New Music Video

SniperShot is the closest thing that Texas hip-hop seems to have to a shaman, and after an extended vision quest at sea, the groovy guru has returned to educate and enlighten the streets.  His first foray, the Chainz-produced single titled Face Facts, is full of SniperShot‘s signature swagger and observational darts.  Add to this a video full of trippy and showcase-style visuals, courtesy of Minott Media, and it’s obvious that SniperShot has yet another classic song and video in his catalog.  Check out the video, leave a like and a comment if you dig it, and share it around for all to enjoy.

Double Dosage :: Gost 915 Drops A Pair Of New Singles

The homie Gost 915 has consistently been one of the realest and most honest MCs I’ve had the pleasure to call a friend, so once I learned that he would be relocating from the Austin area to the Philadelphia area, I was ready to hear what the move would present in terms of new music.  We didn’t have to wait long, as this past week Gost dropped a pair of singles that properly put us up to speed.  Both of the tracks are somber, mellow selections, with SKRT (Gone) and Spinning. both offering revealing looks into Gost‘s mindstate during this transition.  I could offer interpretation, but it’d be a pointless venture, as Gost has always been able to deliver creative lyrics that tell their own tale.  Check out the tracks, leave likes and comments if you feel them, and spread them around for all to enjoy.

From the digital desk of SymmaTree :

‘The main concept behind this project is returning to a place or state of mind that’s special to you.  I had a ton of fun writing these songs and coming up with cheesy nature based song titles.  Thanks for listening.’

Core Sounds :: Chris Conde Releases ‘Earth’ Single And Video

It’s funny how ahead of the curve some MCs can be.  Chris Conde released Conde Digital as a part of Fake Four Records FreeCember promotion, and nearly six months later, his second single Earth is so pertinent that it could have been written yesterday.  Over an ominous, ambient, grimey track courtesy of Moodie Black‘s KDeathConde goes in with some extremely urgent and direct pleas to reason as he breaks down just how interconnected we are with the Earth against how neglectful we tend to be.  Thanks to collaborator Wayne Fau, the message is delivered without Conde‘s signature visual flashes, instead opting for minimal effects and portrait-style presentations of Conde‘s vital message.  Dig the video, leave a like and a comment if you’re feeling it, and share it around for all to experience.

Search Continues :: Light Feather And DK Thundah Present ‘Better Way’ Single

My discovery of YNGLDY has been a fruitful one for sure, as it introduced me to producer DK Thundah and his creative world.  Recently, he hooked up with Light Feather for Better Way, a moving mood-setter of a single that combines dream-pop and cloud rap nearly perfectly.  Light Feather‘s vocals and lyrics are chill-inducing, and DK Thundah not only produced an extremely strong background track, but added a very solid guest verse as well.  DK Thundah even took to the internet later to provide a breakdown of how he created the background track :

Check out the single and the beat breakdown, leave likes and comments if you dig, and share it around for others to do the same!

New Life :: (RAS) Riders Against The Storm Rejuvenates ‘Is It?’ With Ayuma Remix And Video

As the majority of the world remains locked inside due to shelter-in-place measures, many of us are forced to live life as it once was through our memories of what was.  Dance parties tend to be one of the things that people long for, which is what makes (RAS) Riders Against the Storm‘s update to their 2008 single Is It? special, among other things.  The remix, courtesy of Ayuma, has a bounce and vibrance that pulls you in, and the accompanying dance footage (including footage from (RAS)‘s Body Rock Ten Year Anniversary) bolsters that pull by nearly encouraging the viewer to get up and freestyle dance along with the footage.  This dose of mood booster is definitely a strong way to start the week running, so dig it, leave a like and a comment, and share it around for everyone to enjoy.

Variety Show :: LNS Crew Drops ‘LNS Mixtape Volume 3’

a3684255114_10

Over the past 6-8 months, I’ve been keeping track of the singles coming from Kydd JonesCory Kendrix and Tank Washington of the LNS Crew camp, all the while wondering what was in store for the next round of releases.  About a week ago, the crew dropped LNS Mixtape Volume 3, and it all came together for me.  The previously released singles have been paired with a collection of infectious flows and beats, like someone gave the LNS Crew new inspiration.  With so many different people on the project, it could easily come off as scattered, but the collective manages to keep a strong and solid balance between styles and voices that all come together in harmony.  The best thing about these songs is how, despite them sounding like an album project, they could easily be found on the mixtapes of other DJs (and more than likely will).  The way that the members of the crew are taking cues from a wide range of modern day MCs and flipping them on their head to make them aspects of their own styles is truly impressive.  Don’t sleep on this one.
