They say that pressure makes diamonds, and it’s crystal clear that the homie KNDRX is aware of this adage, as his latest single and video, the brief but super catchy Pressure, displays. Over a montage of dope performance footage, casual footage and hype session footage all cut together with slick and eye-catching editing, KNDRX drops bars about how his life, lifestyle and environment has shaped him into the man he is today, all over a powerful A Train beat. QNTM must be given his props for the work on this video, as it more than stands up to the high bar for quality that KNDRX has set for himself and has consistently met. Definitely check this one out as soon as possible, leave a like and a comment if you’re feeling it, and share it around!
My man Cory Kendrix stays in the booth. Personally, I’d find myself distracted by all the party favors in Colorado, but Cory has managed to not only find his voice as an MC and an artist, but he continues to grow in terms of confidence and range with each new song and project. For July 18th Freestyle, Cory whipped up a deceptively simple monster of a track and hollered at his homie Sloesip to jump on board for some braggadocio bars. Cory Kendrix even put the artwork together for this one, showing that he sees the bigger picture and is not limited to traditional rapper roles. This one sounds like it’ll find itself comfortably within someone’s mixtape with its all business approach, so don’t sleep on it.
Back in February of this year, The Deer were on the road (as they usually are). While in Colorado, they set aside some time to perform Acid Wash live from Mountain Star Studio (located in Black Hawk). With instruments ready, and a single light bulb to illuminate them and set the mood, the group poured themselves into this beautiful song, and the performance is one for the ages. Take some time to immerse yourself, give it a like and a share, and maybe even a comment if the song moves you enough.
