Young Black And Gifted (Verse Essential x Kidd Called Quest) – No Invitation Needed

Young Black And Gifted (Verse Essential x Kidd Called Quest) -  No Invitation Needed

Verse Essential & Kidd Called Quest
No Invitation Needed

Another worthy selection & chapter in Kidd Called Quest’s ” Young , Black ,& Gifted” series ( the 1st two featuring Azariah & Golden respectively, both solid projects ) No Invitation Needed features NYC rhyme spitter Verse Essential . Verse comes off as a hybrid version of Freddie Foxx & Torae with a commanding voice that almost demands you listen to his words , more intricate than most of today’s ABC mc’s Verse like Quest’s other partners in rhyme speak to the everyman, and no fantasy lyrics about money, drugs,strippers, or Bugattis that is prevelant in most top 40 songs. Verse is a mc underground heads will check for especially on tracks like ” From The Bottom” , “Back To The Basics”, “Born Hustler” , “Brass Knuckles”.
As with the first two Y, B,&G projects Quest tailors the beats to the MC , the beats & production sound more new age ( but not trap like) versions of his style. As he did with Golden , KCQ is hand in glove with Verse’s rhyme style…and like the last two projects no features are needed and not too long either. 11 tracks deep, not too long or short but good enough to catch your attention and make you wanting more. ( Apparently both Verse & Quest know when to get off stage ) This is a solid joint from this team and listeners should be very happy with this album. Tracks to check for: “No Invitation Needed”, “From The Bottom”, “Back To Basics”, Jamaica Queens State Of Mind”, ” Born Hustler” , ” Brass Knuckles” .

ALL SONGS RECORDED & MIXED BY J. BURKE AT ATLANTIS STUDIO / BROOKLYN, N.Y. Except for Stand By Me Recorded & Mixed By Dj Fred Ones at TME studio in the Bronx NYC.

Stereo Boyz x Sacramento Knoxx

Stereo Boyz x Sacramento Knoxx

The Stereo Boyz release the fourth single off their album “Carz, Clubz & Theaterz” along with a video, better yet, a music film by Sacramento Knoxx.

Knoxx, who also produced the song, is a multi talented member of the Stereo Crew and shot, directed and edited the “Drago” visuals.

For the spiritual energy to be resilient and always strive to be your best is the theme of this film. I just was recovering from a serious accident when we filmed this video, I was depressed, but creating and doing what i love helped me recover and feel good. I was still in bad shape filming this, but it was a part of my healing process.”, Knoxx says and continues: “As an artist with a hybrid gift, i want to continue to push the boundaries and innovate and build master designs in hop hop.

The song “Drago” is an ode to overcoming diversities, to being like Rocky, when the world is coming at you like Drago.

“There’s nothing you can’t beat”

This song is Hip Hop. It isn’t about making a song following a formula to produce a hit. This song is about putting your heart into it, about Bars and Revolution.

Watch the video below and find links to the song and full album.

The Stereo Boyz consist of members Mixo (aka Applauze Beetz) and Mic Audio (aka Perfect Hell). Before becoming the super group Stereo Boyz they were a part of the “Rhyme Asylum” (1999 – 2008), a group that claimed a reputation of being one of Detroit’s most hardcore underground rap groups. Performing since a young age, the two MCs have created an undeniable stage presence, they master the ceremony, and in countless freestyle competitions the Stereo Boyz have earned the respect of every emcee they came across. Completing their second tour across Europe in early 2013, with shows in Germany, France, Austria and Switzerland the Stereo Boyz have been internationally approved.

With Mixo coming from Detroit and Mic Audio from Chicago they have created a perfect fusion of the Midwest. Combining strong lyrics with catchy hooks, their sound merges the best of both worlds: clever rhymes and beats that any hip hop fan will nod their head or move their feet to.The mixtape “Sound Check Vol 1” was their first group effort and has earned praises from rap fans worldwide, as well as Mic Audios following solo project “Biblical Fearical”. The Stereo Boyz dropped their EP “Live from the Ghettoblaster” in January of 2011 and after releases like the “Guten Tag!” mixtape, beat tapes and several street releases, their highly anticipated debut album “Carz, Clubz & Theatrez” was released August 13th 2013. Constantly in the studio recording and working on new beats and rhymes the group makes it impossible to be slept on.

The Stereo Boyz represent the past, present, & future of Detroit Hip-Hop. Their combination of Detroit Motown and Chicago’s House & Electro sound has created a midwest masterpiece. Now it’s time to share that masterpiece with the world.

Kropz – Third Eye Open

The ‘Third Eye’ talks about opening the pineal gland in order to awaken our consciousness. It is once our consciousness is aware, and our ‘Third Eye’ open, that we can begin to manifest our desires. Corporations, governments and societies target us through hidden agendas to disconnect us with our consciousness in order to keep us suppressed as people. It is only ourselves, through knowledge of self, meditation, decalcifying of the pineal gland and awareness of imposed limitations, that we can open up our own ‘spiritual gateways’ in order to experience our ultimate realities – to connect ourselves to the universe and therefore the unlimited possibilities of our existence.
