“Quite A Man” is the Essential Guide to Hip-Hop That Every Man Should Hear in Their Lifetime

How do I describe this new single? I’m just going to say it, I was quickly drawn into this for it’s “Pharcyde” qualities that are apparent, but it was done very tastefully. I don’t want to cheapen the value of that comparison or the work of the production team because I’m super impressed by it. What I found that was more surprising was the talent level on the entire track. There are some really, really, really talented MCs on this track with some profound thinking and history behind their words. I can’t help but feel nostalgic when I hear this...

Trails, Shyheim and Ill by Instinct are Revitalizing True Grit in Hip Hop with “Bang Harder”

I’ve had the honor to hear this entire Self Preservation compilation and I have to say it has been outstanding and quite easily the best thing I’ve listened to in decades. Usually a mix compilation has a few songs that are fire, but every song made me stop and think for a minute. I can't recall exactly how many times I had to hit rewind so I could replay a verse I liked or a transition I loved. There is truly a little something for everyone as the styles of hip hop are all quite unique, you even have a few beats that are perfect for the juiced out car stereo system.

Matt Rouch unloads truthful relationship woes with "Adelaide"

"Adelaide, I know, you don't want me.., Adelaide, I know, nobody." I'll be damned if those lyrics don't strike a tone with any human being on the planet. If it doesn't, you're lacking a soul.If you have ever fallen for someone you will instantly feel the tone and message of this song. You might even yearn for a love that no longer exists, you'll wish you said the right things, you'll wonder if that meaningful relationship you had could have been more and you'll wonder what that lover is doing today. You might just come to the realization that it was...

"Please Read", No Seriously, Listen to Skip Prolific's New Single

I don't know exactly what it is about Colorado based Skip Prolific and his trio but they make me want to read on and listen to his thoughts. In this new single cleverly titled "Please Read", you will hear what appears to be a very heartfelt letter loaded with poetic nuances. As a lyricist myself, I find a lot of solemn comfort in these words. It's not clear whether he is writing to a lover or about a topic and I find that immensely intriguing. You have a great steady beat, clean acoustic guitar driving the tempo with a soulful grit. It's...
