Bustin’ Loose :: Jsun The Prophesor And Levi Deadman Combine Forces For ‘Hektek’

We are definitely living in tense times nowadays, especially here in Texas on the eve of Constitutional Carry implementation.  Jsun the Prophesor, one of the driving forces behind the Austin hip-hop supercollective CHHK (College of Hip-Hop Knowledge), seems to clearly understand how normal and performative this collective madness is, and lucky for us, so does Levi Deadman.  With the help of South Side Hippie on production, the result of these ruminations is Hektek, the second single and video off of Jsun‘s upcoming album 9th Symphony.  Definitely check out the single and video, leave a like and a comment if you’re feeling it, and share it around so everyone can get hip!


Resonance Rap :: Levi Deadman Goes Esoteric With ‘Patient Zero (Najar Media)’

For those of us that have been in shelter-in-place for what is pushing 9 months now, there are two (in my opinion) proper ways to approach it : circle and assess your creative wagons, or take the time for deep introspection.  It seems that Levi Deadman is on a similar page based on his latest single and video, Patient Zero (Najar Media).  Levi Deadman‘s new banger focuses on the impact his simple statement of being alive and aware can cause, and in the way that leaders do, the single serves as an example for others to follow.  Add a bit of down south, psychedelic, indie-level imagery to the mix, and you’ve got yourself a winner on all fronts.  Dig the video, leave a like and a comment if you enjoy it, and share it around for others to do the same.


Statement Raps :: Levi Deadman and MaxMilly Talk Culture On ‘Dead Wrong’


Austin-based artist Levi Deadman is one of many who finds himself at an impasse due to the cultural divide that hip-hop currently faces.  On the one hand, in hip-hop almost more so than any other genre, change is inevitable.  On the other hand, we cannot let that change be at the expense of the foundations that have been laid.  With that in mind, Levi Deadman and MaxMilly found a way to have a foot in both worlds without having to give an inch for their stance or in regards to how they feel about the culture.  MaxMilly drops a hook that many of the young guns would kill for, while Levi Deadman drops a style reminiscent of the popular late-1990s Midwest flow that artists like Twista and Bone Thugs-N-Harmony made popular, all over a bone-chilling track that is equal parts horror score and hip-hop banger.  This is how you can make a statement without causing a further divide, and for that, I must give Levi Deadman all the props he deserves.
