Spotlight: Molly Brazy’s “Molly’s Story” is an unflinching trip into her psyche

Published

on

Molly Brazy

For those of you who haven’t heard Molly Brazy rap, you’re in for a surprise. As innocent as she looks, she’s one of the best rappers out here. Her voice may be soft, but she can spit bar after bar with some of the biggest names in the game. It’s only a matter of time until she gets the spotlight that she deserves, and with releases like “Molly’s Story” coming out, it looks like her time will get here sooner or later.  Over a delicate beat where she proceeds to go in, Molly gives us some of the best bars we’ve seen to date from her.

“Molly’s Story” is raw, yet there’s a juvenile quality to it. Maybe it’s Molly’s soft voice that makes it sound like Frozen meets Meek Mill. She spits raps about coming up while also giving game to listeners. “How you wait for the sun when you ain’t been through the rain?” she raps at one point, sounding almost angry. She’s eager to tell her story while helping listeners get through theirs, and it shows. Over the course of three minutes, she replicates this type of impact with countless raps that punch through casual listening ears.

The production itself evokes the style of Meek Mill’s famous Intro track from Dreams and Nightmares. It changes multiple times, starting first at only a minute in where Molly speeds up her raps to match the new pace. About thirty seconds later, the drums come in, adding a whole new melody to the song.

It’s only been out a short time and it’s already become one of our favorite tracks at the moment. Check it out below.

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.
