Spotlight: “Jeno Brown” by Jeno Cashh is nostalgic, yet pushes the envelope

Published

on

Jeno Cashh has been one of the hottest rappers in Detroit for some time thanks to his scorching delivery and distinctive style. He’s not afraid to switch things up at a moment’s notice; whether that’s finding inspiration outside of the city or involving concepts in his releases. He checks both of these creative boxes with “Jeno Brown,” a New Jack City inspired single that pays homage to one of the film’s most memorable scenes.

When New Jack City came out in 1991, it was unlike anything else in circulation. Its fearless portrayal of violence, sex, and drugs, was in stark contrast to the party movies like House Party that portrayed the time period as an extended festival. The movie would be an instant hit, spawning successful singles such as “For The Love Of Money” by Troop/Levert ft. Queen Latifah that would become instantly associated with the film.

“For The Love Of Money” is sampled in “Jeno Brown” and scenes from New Jack City are interspersed at certain points in the video. Certain lines of dialogue from the film are used, and the style of clothing worn by main man Nino Brown and his associates, in one of the film’s most memorable scenes, is worn by Jeno Cashh and his crew well. A lot of effort was put into seamlessly blending the two art forms to create a wholly unique product.

“Jeno Brown is an engrossing listen. Producer Antt Beatz provides Jeno with a Bay Area-influenced beat perfect for the rapper to let loose on. The bounce of it isn’t something you’d typically associate with the Midwest so it makes for a nice change of pace. Jeno does what he does best, releases a no holds barred, verbal assault sure to elicit a grin on your face.

The nostalgic feel invoked by the video’s style and unique beat choice make this one of the songs to beat this year. Jeno Cashh has released a banger that we’re sure will pick up steam in the near future.

Bay Area Spotlight: @lilunowolfpack Makes A Triumphant Return in “Back”

Published

on

There’s nothing more stressful than a return to something that you’ve stepped away from. Will you still be relevant in that community? Will your skills be rusty, deeming you obsolete? In rap, where viewability and the ever-pressing fear of not being relevant anymore, these problems are especially prevalent. Lil Uno’s new track “Back” marks his self-imposed triumphant return to rap in stellar fashion.

On the track, Lil Uno immediately declares his return to rap. A brief break won’t determine his matter to the game; he’ll make it apparent through sheer hard work and good music. “Back” encapsulates what we love about Uno – the flow, delivery, and beat choice are all A1 choices. The visual itself is simple, yet elegant. It fits the song’s huge energy perfectly, not being too much or too lite.

Check out “Back” below.
