Review: Rocky Badd shows her sensual side with “With You”

Published

on

Rocky Badd

Rocky Badd’s talents go beyond rap style: she’s a lyricist and she can also switch things up whenever she feels that she wants to try something different. With bars being the focus of her recent releases, it was time to show us that she has more to her character. To do this, she gifted the world the visual for “With You,” the ten track from her new project Rocko

When the track starts off, it’s immediately apparent that we’re in for a more sensual side of Rocky Badd. The slow, brooding beat draws comparisons to 90s R & B beats that use the slower approach to pack emotion into every thud of the drum. Over the crisp production, Rocky B sings longingly to a lover about his effect on her. “All I wanna do is be here with you/and lay under you,” she sings on the chorus. It’s a sure fire baby-making song that will introduce Rocky’s fanbase to a new subset of her talents.

The video reinforces the baby-making notion, with Rocky stripping down to lingerie and relaxing in the presence of her significant other. She’s either in the bathroom preparing for a night to remember or in bed wrapped in her lovers arms, but one thing’s certain: this isn’t a video that you should watch at work – technically if nothing really happens. The man in the video definitely had a blast filming it as far as we can tell.

When the video ends with Rocky’s lips pressed against the man’s skin, you’re disappointed because you want more. The song really sells the idea that this interaction between lovers is authentic and private: the video’s depiction of this seems all the more real. As it moves towards the next step in the couple’s night, it abruptly shuts off, leaving us with our thoughts. Up until that point, we loved everything about it. The rapid cut off left a slight pang of disappointment only because we became so caught up in the storyline. I guess we’ll never know how things wrapped up in that scene.

All in all, it’s a sensual song that’s elevated by an intense visual depicting a woman’s raw sexual energy. Rocky moves with swagger and purpose and portrays her feminine wiles in a delicate manner that exceeds expectations and shows her versatility as an artist. The visual comes at a good time and will surely make people on the fence about downloading her project and go do it now, especially this viewer here.

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.
