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.

Here’s The Verdict on Joey Purp’s ‘QUARTERTHING”

Published

on

Joey Purp’s a member of the SaveMoney crew – a Chicago based collective featuring the likes of Chance The Rapper and Vic Mensa amongst other eclectic musicians – and brings a striking new element to Chicago’s music scene. When he released iiiDrops in 2016, although his sophomore project, the world was given a proper introduction into his world of street adjacent raps. He showed his ability to be introspective over a wide selection and variety of ethereal beats. His new project QUARTERTHING continues this creative selectiveness with a newfound commitment to innovation.

Over the course of its runtime, the unique cadence and flow he utilizes to channel excitement constantly grows and evolves. On tracks like “Elastic” and “Godbody Pt. 2,” Purp’s tenacity shines through the refracted lens of eclectic beat selection. Confidence is the main currency being traded on QUARTERTHING. “2012,” the album’s most nostalgic cut, even retains some of this aesthetic that helps to build immersion.

Although much of it the project is powerful, there’s a glaring misstep. “Bag Talk” has a yelling problem; one that the album tries its best to mask throughout with loud beats. But “Bag Talk” peels the veil back to showcase just how empty it sounds without the extra bells and whistles.

Nevertheless, QUARTERTHING is a powerful project that continues to showcase some serious growth for Purp. He’s proving himself to not only be one of SaveMoney’s best, but Chicago’s as well.

Review: Kash Doll’s “Ice Me Out”

Published

on

Kash Doll’s latest release “Ice Me Out” is the signal of a new age for the Detroit paragon. Her raps have been traditionally delivered in luxe instrumentals, with powerful punchlines being delivered in louder tones. She’s like a female Meek Mill, only more cunning and intimate while keeping the garish tone. “Ice Me Out” changes the perception surrounding her rhymes tremendously. It’s a bold change that works out in the long run.

When Kash Doll steps into the booth, you know you’re going to get something fiery. Just listen to “Check,” one of her previous releases from a few months ago, and you’ll find the energy that she raps with to be mesmerizing. But “Ice Me Out” travels in the opposite direction from the sentiment made evident in the first release. Here, Kash Doll is much quieter, more intimate than ever before. Also, the instrumental she chooses is barebones, enabling her tantalizing lyricism to stand out in bold, exciting ways.

If you’re open to change, than “Ice Me Out” is the Kash Doll track for you. It’s much different than her past releases and gives her a platform to build her aesthetic from. It’ll be interesting to see how it grows from here.

Listen to “Ice Me Out” below.

Bandgang’s ‘In Too Deep’ is a hard-hitting opus

Published

on

Bandgang’s latest project In Too Deep is the kind of hard hitting street record that everyone needs to hear. Street albums often rotate in and out of importance when the next one comes. Think about any Gucci Mane project ever. Once the next one comes, they’re often left to reside in nothingness until they become unpopular again. But not this time – In Too Deep is hard, brutal, and sits with you long after it goes off. It’s the kind of record that’ll keep you up at night when thinking about its dark intricacies. I can’t say too many other albums have had me in a similar manner.

In Too Deep is a long collection of street raps – nothing more, nothing less. These bangers come in three shapes – fast, Detroit-level knockers, slower, more thought-out hits, and plodding, introspective tunes. All three hit equally as hard. “Come From That” moves at a frighteningly fast pace with bombastic production that makes it a treat to get through. “At My Door” is a little bit slower, but equally as hard. The magnetic nature of the songwriting make each cut a treat to get through.

As far as weak spots, there aren’t any. The project’s power comes in its consistency, so, while no two songs sound the same, they carry a similar energy that makes them equally listenable. This is some of Bandgang’s finest work and you can hear the time that they spent perfecting each rime from the outside. Since it sticks with you when you turn it off, you’ll be more than excited to queue it up again. It’s the gift that keeps on giving. In Too Deep is exactly what you need to survive in these streets.
