Review: “Cold Summer” by Jeezy ft. Tee Grizzley

Published

on

Street rappers make the best music, DJ Drama said it best. The language he used may have been more colorful, but in the end, the fact remains true that rappers who come from the struggle often times make the best music available. This effect doubles when two of those artists come together for the same track. Jeezy’s “Cold Summer” featuring Tee Grizzley is an indicator of that: two wordsmiths from two very different areas use an angry beat to describe a similar street experience that transcends their locations.

Jeezy’s continued relevance is something that many artists of his age bracket often struggle with. He manages to stay on the tip of peoples’ tongues because he’s able to compete at the lyrical level of the younger generation without coming off as corny or out of place. His street panache makes him a logical pairing for Tee Grizzley who’s youthful appearance and strong rap style are somewhat resemblant of a younger Jeezy’s own career beginnings.

The beat that they choose seems dipped in Detroit’s harsh style of bass-heavy production but laced with Atlanta’s melodic trappings, ever so lightly. Over the combined production, Jeezy and Grizzley spit some serious bars. Grizzley brings it back to Detroit with “I’m from Detroit, baby that’s a wild city/Hop on to that block party give the crowd 50” painting a harsh picture of the city’s street life. Over the course of just over three minutes, both street rappers paint vivid pictures of their lives now and the lives that they lived that made them the powerhouse lyricists they are today.

All in all, it’s a solid track that’s sure to be a single from Jeezy’s upcoming album. Check it out below:

DJ Drewski & AceMula “Keep It Moving” Song Review

Published

on

“Keep It Moving” by DJ Drewski and AceMula feat Law and Cruch Calhoun has just been released.

The song puts emphasis on Acemula’s very own Drill music and “Jersey Club” music mashup. With an upbeat headbanging tempo that gets you in the groove to move, and a “this ain’t what you want” delivery, this song cannot be toyed with.

What separates New Jersey from all other states is how we have our own swag. “Jersey Club Dance” is a dance style characterized by moves like “Bunny Hop” “Sexy Walk” “Boyden Dance” “B-rock” and so much more. The sound of “Jersey Club Music” is a pulsating, non-stop
beat that may or may not have a DJ instructing dance moves.

Law’s soft voice intertwined with Cruch Calhoun’s hardcore approach gives the song a unique alternative. A switch-up that I believe is what makes it appropriate to listen to at any time of the day. It’s not extremely aggressive nor is it too friendly.

AceMula

When the song comes on Law comes in with her mellow but deep vocals that give off an “earworm” effect. The song has a little surprise to it because when it first comes on, listeners may assume it’ll have a slow or medium pace, but then the feel-good beat comes out of nowhere.

The R&B and Pop Singer’s definition of keeping it moving is not accepting anything that isn’t on her level. Not to mention both of these artists are actually on the move when it comes to their craft and building an empire. Talk about actions speaking louder than words!

During Cruch Calhoun’s verse he rapped about some hard times he went through like giving his last to people who were down. However, this beat is so grandiose that you may not soak it in instantly. His deep voice also gave the song an edge. Calhoun is basically saying if you don’t want smoke KEEP IT MOVING. The rapper states “know not to play with me, check my demeanor.” Which highlights his gangster and his knowledge on street life. A lot of people talk or tweet as Calhoun puts it, but aren’t really action based.

When I first listened to this song on my way to work I was so pumped up and ready to take on the day.

Just be careful listening to this song if you get stuck in traffic!

By

On the heels of Solid Foundation’s recent joint venture with Soundcloud to develop and manage the next generation of artists, the QC Media Holdings company has named Atlanta native and music industry veteran Brandon Farmer partner at Solid Foundation Management. Farmer will join an impressive team of executives and managers at Solid Foundation, with his primary focus being the expansion of the Solid Foundation artist management roster beyond the current star-studded Quality Control Music roster. 

On being named partner at Solid Foundation, Farmer shares: “I’ve been a part of the music industry since I was young, so this is all I have ever known. Being born and raised in Atlanta, I watched the growth of Quality Control starting from my hometown to becoming a household name. I look forward to getting to work and couldn’t imagine being a part of a stronger team!” 

After working as part of Justin Bieber’s core team, Farmer decided to branch out on his own. Knowing the direction he wanted to take with his career, he founded B. Farmer Management. Starting in the road management space, Farmer quickly amassed a roster of clients including Jeremiah, Kelly Rowland, Sevyn Streeter, and Rotimi. Having paid his dues on the road, he soon moved into full artist management; with one of his many past clients being rising rapper and fellow Georgia native, Latto. 

“Brandon is a perfect fit for Solid Foundation. He fights for his clients and makes a real impact on their careers, and that’s the type of energy we’re looking for.” – Simone Mitchell, President of Solid Foundation Management

“We are excited about having Brandon on board. He’s a pro and is exactly who we need to continue growing the Solid Foundation roster and brand.” – Kevin “Coach K” Lee, COO Quality Control

“Brandon’s industry connections and expertise are a major asset. Between his new role as partner and our partnership with Soundcloud, we’re letting people know Solid Foundation is out here expanding far beyond our original ventures.” – Pierre “P” Thomas, CEO Quality Control
