Team Eastside Peezy is back with new project Winter Grind

Published

on

As 2017 begins to close up, the final tallies will soon be counted to up to answer one question: who won this year? Out of all of the artists currently releasing music through their channels, who’s been working the hardest and has seen the results? From this standpoint, it looks like Team Eastside Peezy is certainly a winner. He looks to make that statement a fact with the release of his new project Winter Grind. The heavily anticipated project is finally out, serving as a soundtrack for the impending cold weather.

Winter Grind comes in pretty slim at only 8 tracks, showing that Peezy knows how to tease fans and fill them slightly versus stuffing a bloated mixtape down their throats. There’s only one feature as well from BabyRay, meaning that those who came to hear Peezy by himself won’t be disappointed – he’s front and center, rapping his ass off. Winter Grind has all of the tellings of being a top-notch project and we can’t wait to delve into it.

Peezy’s had one hell of a year. This will be his fourth release of the year, showing that he’s perhaps one of the hardest working artists in the industry. He released Ballin Ain’t A Crime in March followed by Da Realist EP and then The People’s Champ. After this one, he should be in a position to just ride out the rest of the year. There’s early buzz saying that Winter’s Grind is the best of the batch.

Winter’s Grind is already a hit with fans, evident in the reception that it’s getting on Twitter.

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.
