BLÜD – “OMB” [Mixtape]

June 28, 2017

By Kaitlin

Philadelphia producer BLÜD releases OMB, a 12-track beat tape. The tape starts off with its “Intro,” a soulful gospel theme but segues into a wide-ranging soundscape of various melodies. From synthpop records like “Neon” to tranquil R&B laden sounds like “Dice,” BLÜD displays his sound capability summed in a full length project. The project makes evident that BLÜD stands alone as a one-man-band/producer. Although it’s a solo effort, the project is sure to jump-start the ignition to making hits with everyone’s favorite artists.

Up and coming independent hip hop artist Young DrA is soon releasing his new single, “Pickin Me”, produced by Xcel Beats this summer.

The title of the series will be called Real DrAma and it’s a shining example of one of the many ways independent artists are creatively finding new ways to distribute their music and grow their brand.

Video: Future Feat. Chris Brown – ‘Pie’

June 26, 2017

By Jake Miosge

Surprise! With very little warning, Future and Chris Brown “turn a sidepiece to a nine piece” on their new collaboration, “PIE,” produced by Detail and d.a. doman.

The video, directed by Nick Walker, starts off at a party filled with “side pieces.” HNDRXX promises that it “should be a good night,” while inviting Breezy to join him at his pad.

True to his word, several women show up to the house. One delivers food. Another joins shortly after and heads to the bathtub. Before long, a few more gorgeous girls arrive while Brown and Pluto sing about how sharing is caring.

“She don’t wanna go,” sings Future. “I roll 100 deep, we like sharing hoes.” Breezy adds: “It’s your birthday, go ahead and put that cake on me / Commas and zeros, I’ll be your hero with no cape on me.”

Although they manage to keep the ladies in different rooms at first, the women eventually realize what’s happening. Though Brown and Future have worried looks on their faces, it turns out the girls don’t mind at all, and the party resumes.

Speaking to BET, Future explained that the video has been waiting for its release. “We’ve had this video for a second,” he said. “We’ve been working on it for a second and we feel real good about this song. I asked Chris, ‘Is it a hit?’ He said, ‘For sure. We got one.’”

Earlier in the evening, Brown and Future both took the stage for separate sets at the BET Awards. Breezy performed “Privacy” and “Party” with Gucci Mane, while HNDRXX was joined by Kendrick Lamar for the “Mask Off (Remix).”

Chrsytel – “Dangerous”

June 24, 2017

By Kaitlin

ATL based singer/songwriter, Chrystel wasted no time following the release of “Disciples” , already back today with the BigPapito aka Papa Fall-produced cut “Dangerous” via Rated RnB.
Throughout the song, the Salt Lake City transplant toys with the idea of knowing that any and everything can go wrong in this risky relationship but still proceeding.
Chrystel says of the song, “I freestyled the whole song the first time I heard the beat in the studio and ironically it’s my favorite out of all the records I’ve released. The song reminds me of all of the African music I heard growing up. It has a very nostalgic bass line.”
