Cypher Season :: Cha’keeta B Curates #TheeATXCypher Sessions

Over the past couple of years, I’ve watched Cha’keeta B evolve from a raw talent into a figurehead for the Austin hip-hop movement.  Not only has she focused on her music and image, she’s done the same for a handful of others on the scene, allowing them chances to step out of their sphere and gain more exposure (and hopefully inspiring them to continue this cycle).  Her latest example of these efforts are a pair of YouTube videos she recently dropped dubbed Thee ATX Cypher (Pt. 1 and Pt. 2).

Pt. 1 features DJ E in the cut, with verses by Dot drop da beat2-4 OsoTone Brigante and CP Loony, while Pt. 2 finds DJ Tigre playing host to Cha’keeta BQueen DeelahCeCe Hustle and Marshe’.  Rob G Films uses a minimalist approach that is highly effective, allowing each group to set the tone with their cyphers and the wide range of topics that are hit.  Definitely check these out, like and comment on both, and share them around for others to enjoy.

No Scrubs :: Cha’keeta B And Lakrea Stay ‘Fuck Boy Free’

artworks-000542835132-jwcqq1-t500x500

If it wasn’t clear from some of her previous releases, Cha’keeta B is not here for the games.  Her latest single, a collaboration with singer Lakrea titled Fuck Boy Free, plants a flag in the sand on that stance, firmly letting all possible suitors know that dedication and honesty is a must, and that nothing less than that will be tolerated.  The track is an upbeat banger, and Lakrea‘s assist on the hook makes it one that (let for the song title) would probably get some heavy radio rotation.  If you’re a Soundcloud fan though (and I know a lot of you are), then I recommend putting this one in your summer rotation, sharing it around, and leaving a comment on your favorite bar!

Truth Bombs :: Cha’keeta B Drops Another Gem With ‘Flex’ Video

There seems to be no denying the fact that Cha’keeta B is a forced to be reckoned with, be it the Austin hip-hop scene or otherwise.  Her confidence in herself is nearly unmatched, and her lyrical skill level continues to be consistent and impressive, with her bars managing to be self-affirming and motivating in equal measure on Flex.  The main message of the track is up-front and simple : there’s nothing wrong with celebrating winning, especially if that victory is due to your motivation, efforts and hard work.  The value of earning your status on your own terms cannot be undermined, and Cha’keeta B manages to put some shine on the concept with a sleek looking and impressive video.  This one is racking up impressive numbers already, but go ahead and help keep that momentum going by giving it a like, comment and/or share (if not all three), and remember to keep supporting artists like Cha’keeta B in their efforts.

Beyond Measure :: Cha’Keeta B Releases ‘2Incomparable’ EP

Screenshot_1

After a successful video release last year for 2 Can Play That GameAustin-based emcee Cha’Keeta B steps into the release realm with a new EP, 2Incomparable.  Cha’Keeta B does a wonderful job of laying down empowering thoughts and observations with supreme confidence and delivery.  The production is on-point throughout the project, and guest appearances from Cat CarterLakreaNubia Emmon and Alesia Lani help round out the empowerment stance found on the album.  Cha’keeta B reminds me of newer female emcees such as Rhapsody, no doubt, but her voice is also reminiscent of Neb Luv from The 5 Footaz, both in her rhyme schemes and timbre.  This is definitely a strong way to start 2018… be sure to listen, share and support Cha’Keeta B in this venture, and always give props to your local artists.

Self Respect :: Cha’Keeta B And Nubia Emmon Show ‘2 Can Play That Game’

Sometimes, moving on is about holding on to the good while separating yourself from the bad.  Other times, moving on is about taking a stand for yourself, setting a bar for where your standards will lie, and displaying integrity.  Cha’Keeta B and Nubia Emmon, with the help of Robgfilm.com, bring the second circumstance to life perfectly in the music video for Cha’Keeta B‘s latest single, 2 Can Play That Game.  The video is full of wonderful touches, such as the Petty Squad title card and the ever-looming presence of NBA 2k in the room where relationship drama is played out at the maximum level.  Complete productions like this definitely show that the Texas music scene is legitimate on the independent level.  Here’s to hoping more good comes from Cha’Keeta B and her camp, because I will definitely continue to pay attention.

Shared Visions :: Cha’keeta B. & Jake Lloyd Explore ‘Forever Love’

And yet, another high quality song and video coming out of my beautiful hometown of Austin.  This one is by Cha’keeta B., with an assist from Jake Lloyd.  The song and video for Forever Love share what it can be like to be on the same wavelength with another soul.  The good times are better, the creative energy can be shared, and the presentations to the world can be much stronger.  This one came heavily recommended by many of my musical peers in Austin, and this was a pleasant surprise, and further proof that our scene can hold one another down when it matters.
