DJ Quik x Problem "European Vacation" ft AMG


I've BEEN a DJ Quik fan since forever and been slapping Problem's music last couple years, too so of course I love hearing them together again.

One year ago today Problem and DJ Quik dropped a collaboration EP on 4.20 that hit #1 on the iTunes Hip Hop charts within hours of release. Today a new Rosecrans track has surfaced, “European Vacation” featuring the one and only AMG..."and issa Compton-Summer vibe."

Slap it:

Dj Danetic x Brandy - "Who Is She 2 U" [Danetic Flip] (GERMANY)


DJing since the '90s, DJ Danetic (Berlin, Germany) is back with another flip. He's been touring and producing for everyone from Eminem to Chino XL, Masta Ace and beyond. This is an ILL flip. I can't really remember what the original even sounds like and I'm not tempted to even search for it. He killed this. And it's super smooth. It's mad gray our here today so I'm sitting by a big bay window blogging and this is perfect mood music.

He takes Brandy's "Who Is She 2 U" to another level. Check it out.


Peace to @IStillLoveHER

Vel the Wonder - "Temporary" ft Bobby Bucher


I've been hip to the stunning Vel the Wonder for a bit through youtube suggested videos (the same way I stumbled upon Gavlyn a few years ago). And we have a few mutual friends, too so I'd hear reference to her and featured MC, Bobby Bucher (fka Severe) on tours and what not the last couple of years. She's been experimenting and doing some cool sh!t with her Melotonics project (look it up) but she's not letting you forget she has some bars to go along with that sultry voice.

The homie Chase Moore (Royce the 5'9", Team Backpack, and a hidden Drake track floating around somewhere) produced the sh-t outta this track. I've had this on repeat since I saw it last night. So if it's monetized then you'll have earned a few Cents from ya boy lol

Anyway, check it out. This track is super smooth. If I smoked I'd sure do it to this.

DJ-V - "The Raw"



It feels good to hear some good hard, aggressive bars sometimes, yo. I kinda wasted today. Forreal. I did. I've been busting my @$$ all week designing, writing, and doing computer sh-t. I've been kinda out of it and in a funk so I decided to go thru my emails and submissions (I got hella to go through) and found this. This is pretty ill, man. I needed this to kinda re-energize me.

DJ-V is from Orlando by way of Santa Clara, CA, and recently dropped the MadReal & Ricandthadeus-produced "The Raw". "This song was more of a dedication to speaking out and telling the truth while still remaining real to yourself". Check it out.


They don't really love it when ya speaking with the rawness/The rawness, separate the law from the lawless. - dj-v.net

KYLE - "iSpy" ft Lil Yachty (Lyric Video)


So I saw a post on Facebook, you know, the place where people go to complain about things, about this song. The woman wasn't too thrilled with the following line, which I can understand: "I spy with my little eye, a girlie I can get 'cause she don't get too many likes...".

She interpreted it as a predatory line going after a girl with low self-esteem. A few other people chimed in supporting her disgust/protest. I was surprised and when she posted the link it low-key backfired because I kinda like the song lol.

But it got me wondering is that REALLY how Kyle meant it?? I mean, I've been hip to him for a while and even featured his song "Blame" a while back. I don't get that vibe from him content-wise. He doesn't talk about that kinda stuff so it was surprising to me, although we can all name some pretty BOGUS lines rappers have said seemingly out of nowhere condoning rape and other atrocious things. However, I felt he meant that the too many likes was that she wasn't popular yet on social media so she wasn't out of his league? (which he confirmed on this lyric explanation video). I've been there. I met a few models while I was out and seen them grow in "fame" online and went, dang, not even gonna try and slide in any DMs (as if that were my M.O.). But I think the song's fun and I perceived it as harmless??

There may be a deeper self-esteem issue somewhere to be discussed but I don't think it's on a conscious level and I hope I'm right. But, enough taking the wind out of your sales. Have fun with this dope video.

Hip-Hop In: Kuwait (Sons of Yusuf)


It's been a while yo. So I decided to bring back my series of International hip-hop features, "Hip-Hop in:" and this time we're heading to the Middle East! [Kuwait to be exact].

I was in LA during the Grammy's this year and ended up at an event my guy from Delicious Vinyl hipped me to. There were dope artists all across the country and world. Sons of Yusuf got up on stage and tore it down! Their stage presence and the bars [that I understood] were on point. An awesome mix of cultures with their traditional apparel and current American hip-hop vibe and rhyme schemes. I wanted to feature their most recent "Khalifornia" mixtape but will also include a video of theirs, too. People like this are why I say I don't give AF about being the "king of my city". The world is huge. But these guys are dope and working on an interview for the next issue of Royal Heir Magazine (coming soon).

This video's a little older but I think represents what I was talking about earlier as far as culture-meshing. Check it and check the mixtape below.

But yeah, the dude's nice. The track's nice. Click play and pre-order "Cassidy Howell" by Sahtyre.

Reverie - "Critique Like Me" MV



She's back at it. The one and only Reverie released her first single/video off her forthcoming collaborative "Satori" album with her brother, Louden who produced this single, "Critique Like Me".

Putting yourself out there isn't easy. Being a somewhat [ha] sensitive, artsy Gemini, trust me, I know lol. But when in this game, and often for women in general [sadly] people are put on pedestals not necessarily to be praised, but to be scrutinized. Not just being judged on music, but our appearance, and even the minutest details in the backgrounds of snaps, and IG posts are analyzed and discussed on our own pages like we can't see them.

I'd argue it's probably more difficult Now than ever to be truly comfortable being yourself. But when you can brush off the negativity and take it for what it is, a way for miserable people to redirect their own pain and weakness, then you can truly LOVE YOURSELF.

It's an awesome feeling. *does the Reverie dance*

Z "Nobody Better" ft Fetty Wap


The older I get/the deeper I get in 'the business' the more I appreciate "pop" music. There's a formula and a science to creating something catchy and commercially appealing. Somehow I soundclouded upon this song and fell in love. Then I was wasting time/procrastinating in my hotel and found the video for this and had to share.

It's not all about "conscious" hip-hop...sometimes we want to just feel good and have fun. This is that time. Enjoy:

Gavlyn - "Calling" MV



Man, sorry, y'all it's been a MINUTO since my last update. It's been crazy. But good crazy. Busy crazy. I was in LA for the Grammy's then went on tour with Reverie and now I'm in TX for SXSW. I'll be managing about 10 acts this week for 5 or 6 different shows we have here (if you're here hit me up! Let's connect).

But anyway, I met Gavlyn a few times but been listening for a few years. She just dropped her new video "Calling" and it's a slapper. We jammed on the trip down here to SXSW a few times and now wanted to share it with YOU.

PNB Rock "Notice Me" MV



So I'm on tour with Reverie right now and we have an off day in my old stomping grounds of St. Louis. We were coming back from some bomb BBQ and was tuned in to 104.1 and a song of his came on ("Selfish") and I was immediately hooked...I looked it up and it was the cat, PNB Rock. I'd seen his name before on flyers and never really went out of my way to hear him. I think it's because I assumed he was another mumbler or something or I think the dudes he was on shows with weren't my cup of tea (best of luck to 'em). But I heard this and realized how foolish I'd been.

I work in this industry for a living and am all about new music and wanted to formally apologize to PNB and his fans for being a d-ckhead. He's incredible. I've been hooked on his videos for HOURS. He's incredible. I was planning to post like 3 others but ended up deciding on THIS single instead, "Notice Me".

I love the concept of this song and video is fire.

Basic - "3 Weeks Sober" MV



I came across this video recently and not only do I like the song but the subject is something that hits close to home.

Michigan-based emcee Basic (@basicmuzik) tells a dark, and beautifully realistic story of a man's struggle with heroin.

I actually went to a funeral for a friend since first grade who'd overdosed on heroin in the past 6 months and heroin hit my city and friends pretty hard since high school. I actually ran into a friend who'd been clean and sober from a Nasty heroin addiction about 3 days ago.

This subject is important and I'm glad to have the platform to share it.



Directed, Filmed, Edited and produced by Cracka Lack who I was blessed to meet this past A3C in Atlanta.

Chris Rivers' Hot97 Freestyle on Pun's Deathiversary



Anyone who knows me knows Big Punisher is my favorite MC. 17 Years ago This Week Big Pun passed away. And on the anniversary one of his friends, the OG Funkmaster Flex invited Pun's son, Chris Rivers to Hot97 to spit a Nasty freestyle over his dad's "Brave in the Heart" beat (which has arguably mt favorite Pun verse).
