Being invited to the Hip Hop Awards to participate in a cypher full of capable female rappers is an honor that Kash Doll received, and rightfully upheld, in her brief appearance. She was able to smash the competition by doing what she does best; battering the microphone until it’s rendered useless. Props to whoever had to come after her after she slaughtered the competition the way that she did.

It all started with her choice of outfit. Whereas most emcees go to ciphers in some sort of hardcore ensemble (usually consisting of shirts, pants, and tennis shoes), Kash Doll showed up and kept it all the way sexy. She wore exactly what she’s accustomed to – tight dresses, high heels, and finely done makeup. She looked amazing, more so an attendant at the Met Gala than one of the best rappers at the BET Hip Hop Awards. Her mink jacket was what cemented her as the person to beat.

When she opened her mouth, it’s safe to say that if you didn’t know who she was prior to that, you do now. She came in hard, fast, and brutal. “I’m a very rich chick, on my NeNe Leaks/I’m a boss, every move gotta come through me” she raps with gusto as she walks around fearlessly. She just goes and goes to the point that when the verse is over, you can’t help but smile.

From punchlines to sheer wit, her verse was something that Hip Hop sorely needed – bars; a generous helping at that. She put on for Detroit in ways that will bring an even larger spotlight onto the city’s lucrative rap scene. Props to Kash Doll for doing what she does best. It’s great that the world is finally seeing what we knew all along.

Review: @LaBritney_ and @kashdoll ‘s “Actin Funny” showcases two of Detroit’s premier artists at their best

Published

on

It’s nice to see women from Detroit come together and create good music. La’Britney and Kash Doll have hooked up and created a true slapper called “Actin Funny.” Over the bouncy, Bay-Area inspired production, La’Britney and Kash Doll drop off verses about how people treat them once they start getting money. Both artists breath fresh air into the tried-and-true topic and showcase their talents, also showign off some new ones.

La’Britney starts off the proceedings by singing the chorus, and, if you thought she could only sing, be prepared to be suprised. She spits a hard verse; seriously, harder than many rappers who just spit. She showcases her venomous side – her talk of guns and shootouts sounds very believable by her not forcing any images, just talking regulalry. Afterwards, Kash Doll comes in and does her thing as usual. Is it even a question at this point?

Overall, very solid record from two amazing recording artists.

Checkout “Actin Funny” below.

Review: Young Roc’s “Dreams” Is Unusual, Refreshing, And Daring

Published

on

In Detroit, raw lyricism and flow are the main points of interest in the rap scene. Without either, you’re often either overlooked or chastised. But Young Roc has made a case for choosing to circumvent these rap mainstays and focus on aesthetically daring music that channels lyricism and flow through unconventional means. He traverses through songs on the backs of eclectic melodies and daring production. It’s an amazing feat that has made him someone on our “Must Watch” list. His single “Dreams” only confirms his place as one of the most creative rappers in the city.

The track’s borderline pop production is a daring choice for Roc. Knowing that due to his past music that he’ll be categorized with the more lyric-heavy artists in the city, Roc still chooses to go for the outlandish. It works in its own exciting way. Roc’s vocals on the track match the wackiness of the production, blending pop aesthetics with gritty Detroit angst. It’s a beautiful track that shows just how creative Roc can get.

Listen to “Dreams” below.

Review: @SOBxRBE ‘s “Paramedic!” Is Brilliant, One Of Black Panther Soundtrack’s Best

Published

on

When Black Panther comes out, people will cause a riot in theaters; partly because the movie has received stellar reviews, but mostly because the soundtrack for the film is of the highest quality. This isn’t an assortment of randomly selected hot songs in pop culture – it’s a carefully curated project by Kendrick Lamar. One of the best songs from the soundtrack comes from the Bay Area’s SOB X RBE collective, the enchanting “Paramedic!”

Kendrick Lamar offers a brief introduction before the tribal beat cuts on, placing listeners in an almost trance-like state. We heard Kilmonger’s name used at the beginning, so it’s reasonable to assume that the song could be related to the movie’s villain. If it is, it makes even more sense – the song has a darkly erotic vibe to it. The chant of “I wish a nigga would,” is long and drawn out, adding to the uniqueness of the track. It’s an enchanting listen that will send the crowd into a frenzy when it comes on during the film.

Listen to the engrossing listen below.
