Standing Strong :: Lady Shacklin Visualizes Growth In A ‘Lonely World’

Even when folks have your back, it can sometimes be extremely easy to fall into a ‘me against the world’ mentality.  Luckily, Lady Shacklin appears to not only disregard the feelings to shy away from that mentality, but she embraces it fully as she explores the feeling and tries to find a way through it to the other side of things.  With a musical assist from DJ Gonz, and a visual assist from Jay Mackall of Grind District Entertainment, the video for Lonely World is a great reminder that we can make it if we try.  Props to Lady Shacklin for hitting us with the Mary J. Blige vibes in this one as well.. Austin r&b is plentiful, but having someone with an edge on the scene gives the proper range and variety needed to keep the scene from getting stagnant.

Bars Galore :: ‘#REALESTMC CYPHER PT III (Austin TX)’ Unleashed

Anyone who knows anything about me knows that I love lyrics.  No matter the musical genre, if you can put some words together in a way that catches my attention, you’ve got me 1000%.  This is one of the things that gets me hype about Jay Mackall‘s #REALEST CYPHER (Austin TX) series.  Not only have I come to expect top notch bars from these cyphers, but it’s doubly assuring to know these cats represent where I’m from.  The sequel to the sequel includes George Vondoom, Syndicate Same Ol, Charlie Rock, Dub Fresh and Black Haze.  Enjoy, share, like and support local!
