Spotlight: Sada Baby’s Video For “Big Skuba” Is Mayhem Confined

Published

on

Big Skuba

 

To say that Sada Baby has unlimited vistas of stored energy is an understatement – this guy could run laps around the Energizer Bunny in a triathlon. His outrageous amount of energy, combined with his clever approach to crafting songs with witty wordplay, has made him one of Detroit’s most notable musicians. When he drops a song, the city listens. The world is also starting to pay attention to the Detroit-native. With the release of a visual for “Big Skuba,” the world may start to pay a lot more attention to the up and coming rapper.

The visual is for lack of better words, loopy. Sada starts the video off with a newborn baby cradled in his hands as he spews vivacious raps with so much energy that the swift movement of his shoulders could probably start a fire. From there, it gets even crazier. At one point, a surfboard ends up in Sada’s grasp; how it got there, no one knows. Later on, he emulates Love and Basketball‘s infamous one-on-one ending. Through it all, he dances like Johnny Depp does in the Pirates of the Carribean series. It’s all very strange, but it’s restrained, beautiful if one must say.

The song itself is nothing short of a banger. The energy that Sada lets out can also be found in the track’s delivery. The production, handled by legendary Motor City producer Helluva is as frantic as Sada’s energy. It’s here that both producer and artist meet in perfect harmony.

By the time the video is over, you’ll want to listen to it again. Just be prepared for the oddities that you’ve seen once and can’t unsee. If all else fails, just play the video through your speakers and leave the monitor off.

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.

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.

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.
