Young RJ – “Huh” [Video]

April 30, 2017

By Kaitlin

As a forever present unofficial-turned-official member of the legendary rap group Slum Village, producer/rapper Young RJ has twice been entrusted with continuing the legacy of Detroit’s most important rap group. But with a prosperous music career behind the scenes and officially as part of the group, he’s ready to speak for himself with his solo debut, Blaq Royalt. And he explores various forms of corruption in new video “Huh?!”

The rapper/producer has produced for the likes of Slum Village, 50 Cent and G-Unit, Eric Roberson, De La Soul and Little Brother. On upcoming album Blaq Royalt, he shows the same musical versatility that made him such a reliable producer.

“Huh” employs ominous synths for a ruthless, chase-checking mentality to music. Check out the video here.

Krazy Obilla – “Rob Atlanta”

April 26, 2017

By Kaitlin

Back in 1999, when 50 Cent was just another up and coming rapper trying to make a name for his-self he released the now classic diss record “How To Rob.” Calling out everybody in the industry from Jay Z to Kirk Franklin, the controversy ridden cut is heavily responsible for jump starting the entertainment mogul’s thriving career. Determined to be the next thing smoking out of South Carolina is upstart Krazy Obilla, who verbally victimizes Georgia’s capital city and Hip-Hop’s current hotbed for his latest audio contribution.
Entitled “Rob Atlanta,” the Skitzo-produced manifesto sends shots towards The Falcons, BMF, Migos, Future, Jeezy, Young Thug, Lil Scrappy, T.I. and more, leaving fans to determine whether this is banter or brainstorming. Stream “Rob Atlanta” after the jump and purchase it via iTunes here.
