My Classic Tracks Of The Past

This is a killer track! I watched “The Harder They Come” a few weeks back & I plan to post the link in the near future. Anyway this had me looking through YouTube for Jimmy Cliff tracks & found ‘I Can See Clearly Now’ from the ‘Cool Running’s’ soundtrack. Here is a diamond in the rough, it may have been commercial at the time this version way released but it will always be a classic. Bless

My New Track – Ear Candy Freestyle

I’ve not been posting much lately so I thought I’d explain why. This is one of the coming tracks I’ve been working on. The beat is from a Latvian producer whose is a friend a Latvian rapper I know. Mostly the feedback has been positive but if you have any other comments I’d welcome constructive criticism. Comment bellow & let me know your thoughts. Bless

LowKey Quits!

As of the 17th of April 2012 Lowkey the Uk rapper/political activist has decided to take a step back from music. Here is an extract taken from Lowkey’s Face book page which has now been shut down “After many months of contemplation I have decided to step away from music and concentrate on my studies. Maybe at some point I will get back into it again but at this stage I feel I should direct my energy in different, more helpful directions. The ego is a destructive thing and I feel this business and these social networks in particular have a tendency to feed it in an unhealthy way. I will be deactivating this page. Thank you for all those who have supported me over the years. See you on the other side people.” He was & is one of the few artists to put out couscous music that really challenged the status quote. I personally am happy for him as I believe it something he obviously felt strongly about. Music can be a very destructive thing if not welded in the right way. He has such a powerful voice so hopefully people will follow his political work as much as they did his music. Any one saying he should stay in the music game I feel where you’re coming from but that thought comes from a selfish place. I wish the brother all the best & hope people learn from his music that’s already been released. I’ve post some of his videos bellow for you to enjoy. Bless

My Classic Tracks Of The Past

Another classic track & I had to go with DMX Slippin’ simply for the fact I used to have this tune on repeat constantly as a teen. It’s got everything I love about rap in it, Soul, emotion & a well put together instrumental. I  can’t get enough of it hope you enjoy it too. Bless

My Tracks Of The Moment

My track of the moment has to be Konscious Kin with Energies of Darkness.  You may have seen a clip of a freestyle I posted in my ‘Rap As An Art Form’ article. It’s always nice to hear British artists coming out with some genuinely positive content. The Video is shot well & the track is timeless, hope you enjoy. Bless

My Classic Tracks Of The Past

Enter the Wu-Tang: 36 Chambers was the first album I ever bought & the reason for that was this single “C.R.E.A.M.” I must have listened to it over a hundred times & I will never get sick of it.  Enjoy a true rap classic. Bless
