"Do Your Thing" playlist

Got hip to a new platform called SoundsGood which allows me to connect my audio accounts and sync playlists across all platforms. REALLY digging this. Made a first one with some slappers and working on syncing more and growing with the platform. Want to listen via your spotify? Click the icon. Want to watch the VIDEOS on Youtube? Click THAT icon!

This is smooth. Just like this playlist. So "do your thing".


Nipsey Hussle - "Dedication" ft Kendrick Lamar

Nipsey Hussle is back with his new single off his new "Victory Lap" album, "Dedication" featuring fellow CA-MC, Kendrick Lamar.

Nipsey's showing everyone the blueprint for indie success for music to crypto currency and everything in between.

Hip-Hop In: Germany (the Tinder edition)

Good old Online-Dating. I was talked into starting a profile on Bumble recently. Never did the tindering or matching or plenty of fishing, but I'm giving Bumble a whirl (the women have to make the first move which is kinda dope). BUT, back to the topic at hand. Hip-hop and more importantly international hip-hop from the good people of Deutschland. Check it out:

Alidaxo started as a hip-hop act in 2015, since then Mischa, Erdi and Seppo have been transforming themselves under the direction of producer Dennis Brzoska (Susanne Blech, Urbanatix). They combine their songs with pop, indie rock and electrical sounds. The trio often incorporates German wordplays to illustrate daily life and captures irony to criticise society. Their newest single “Tinder for one” uses plenty of wit, cliché, prejudice to describe the significant features of the phenomenon of online dating.

I Wanna Be Your Lover

Hey. Sorry I've been absent lately. But, you've been on my mind. Sometimes a man needs space to be a man and find himself before he can truly give you what you need, you know? That doesn't mean all of it has been for me, it's really been for you. I get distracted with life sometimes but an empty pitcher can't fill any glasses, can it. But Essince has plenty to give you, baby.

I'll let my friend put it in words better than I can. Happy Valentine's day.


Crypto Until Infinity (episode 1)

I met DJ in college and aside from many mutual music/non-music interests, he's just a cool dude. Very driven. We were both featured in our school paper together and I'd LOVE for them to do a follow up because we've done some awesome stuff since. One of MANY things he's done is his interest/success in crypto-currency. he recently launched a podcast on the Bitcoin Podcast Network. Check out information and some DOPE music below.

In the first episode of the Bitcoin Podcast Network’s music broadcast, Crypto Until Infinity, host DJsNeverEndingStory explains the freedoms and monetary benefits of being an independent artist with music on the blockchain. Musicoin is compared to traditional streaming services like Spotify with an emphasis on royalty payout. Enjoy the music from this premiere episode with all beats produced by DJsNeverEndingStory.

Nipsey Hussle x YG - "Last Time That I Checc'd" MV

Nipsey Hussle has been killing it. I've always been a fan of his music but his business acumen is not only a testament to him earning his "hussle" but a blueprint to independent success! (Remember his crypto currency investments?).

His new album "Victory Lap" is coming but the single "Last Time That I Checc'd" with YG just dropped. Check the video and pre-order below.



Shakka - "Heart The Weekend" | A COLORS SHOW

I was browsing youtube, more particularly my Watch Later feed and I was re-watching this amazing video from an English singer in the Colors series and let it ride through other COLORS videos and stumbled across this from Shakka. I love this super dope, upbeat track. I could listen to it all day...makes me feel good on the inside.

So I'm gonna play it again. I've decided it.

Guess who's back in time for Xmas

Dang, I'm sorry y'all. It's been a WILD...I was going to say past couple months but let's be real, this whole year has been nutso. I started a professional basketball team (yep. Click that link) as well as my work with Viral Sensation, Layla Khepri and I kinda got lost in the sauce.

BUT, fear not, mes ami, Essince Claus is here bearing gifts. Gifts of raps. Gift Raps.

It's time for the annual re-release of my super dope Christmixtape with DJ Flaco Flash showcasing some of the best Holiday Hip-hop! Snoop, Eazy E, Run DMC and more provide the HOliday cheer we all need this year.

Don't say I never gave you nuthin'.

XOXO - Essince

Dray Houston - "All That" MV

The homie, Dray Houston dropped this video and I've been meaning to share it. We met down in TX during SXSW while waiting to get into a venue we'd booked some acts on. He's been making waves and I definitely wanted to share this, plus All That was one of my favorite shows/a staple of my childhood growing up so there's that...

Dray Houston presents his visual for "All That", filmed and edited by DGainz, also starring the creator of "JuJu On Dat Beat", Zay Hillfigerrr. Make sure to follow Dray Houston on all social medias @DrayHouston and you can also find this track on his SoundCloud page, Dray Houston.

I'm Back (+ June Marieezy & Fkj - Amsterjam)

So I've taken a noticeable hiatus after...well...getting swamped with things (including the fact I'm now the owner of a professional basketball team, the Akron Aviators). But I'm back, friends. Thanks for your patience.

I was posting some things and when I went down to do some laundry and came up youtube had sent me THIS video...and I played it two more times and felt I needed to share it.

Hit play and zone out.


Haley Smalls - "Broken" MV

I've been a fan of Haley Smalls for a while. I love her sound and this album (and specifically track 13) is my JAM. She just dropped her new video TONIGHT (the last of the Halloween treats). Check it and support.


Nipsey Hussle invests in Cryptocurrency

Though it's not "new", Cryptocurrency is the new buzzword in the financial game. From being the cover story in the most recent issue of Fortune to more, economists, celebrities, and average Joes are buying and investing. Though only a VERY small % of the world accepts this as currency many people see it as the future. And one of those people is Nipsey Hussle who flew to Amsterdam to learn and invest in a new platform that allows TRADERS to follow the top investors and mirror their buys with whatever amounts they want.

I call this post, "Niptocurrency" (trademark pending lol)

Check it out.
