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.

Sahtyre - Oxytocin (prod. by Chase Moore)

Sahtyre and Chase Moore are back with another slapper in Oxytocin [yes, that's Oxytocin (äksəˈtōs(ə)n/), not oxycontin as I misread every time].

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.
