Sion Vesill Drops “MC’s Act Like They Don’t Know”

Published

on

Taking inspiration from the golden age of hip hop is nothing new to Liverpool legend Sion Vesill. From the moment he ventured into the world of breaks and beats, taking cues from the likes of 2-Pac, his music has had a strong root in the truths that are embodied by truly infectious beats. 

It is fitting then that his latest release pays homage to one of the most creative voices of the hip hop scene. KRS’ 1995 single ‘MC’s act like you don’t know’, was the lead track on the ground-breaking album Sophomore and explores the challenges of live performance vs recording studio. It’s an ever common issue and one that artists like Vesill are keen to explore. As an artist who displays exemplary talent both on and off stage, Vesill is keen to explore the legacy of talent left by artists like KRS, and this latest release does just that. As Vesill himself states:

“I’ve always admired the pioneers of hip hop and try to learn as much as I can from them, especially the likes of KRS ONE, Kool G rap, Rakim. I feel like our new generation is neglecting the history of the art form and not saluting the fathers of hip hop. I am a student. I will always be a student of rap/hip hop, we can never stop learning. 

“The moment you think you are too good or know it all is the moment you will cease to grow as an artist. I’m inspired by the past and the present so I can deliver something unique in the future, something true to myself. I am honoured to be able to even rap and I will always pay respect to those who did it before me. 

“Emcees act like they don’t know” is one of the coldest beats in hip hop history so I had to reach into a bag that can only be found when the inspiration of artists like KRS one shows you how it should be done! It lights a fire in you that you have to do good, you can’t ruin these beats, they are a piece of hip hop and I will never forget that.”

@sodamansultan drops “Gossip” for fans

Published

By

Atlanta, Georgia native $odaman has been flooding the airwaves for the past month now with the release of his December 2021 project SO DA TAPE 2 that demonstrated the large artistic leaps he has taken over the last year and the versatility he has developed as he matures. His output over the last several years has been prolific and slowly but surely he has etched his name into his hometown’s dense underground ranks, charming fans with his personality and impressing many with his improvement and consistency, evolving his style and brand without ceasing. 

One thing that has characterized his rise thus far has been the copious instances of creative music videos that have bolstered his reputation and proven his tedious attention to detail that speaks to both his artistic integrity and commitment to his craft. Today he is releasing the second visual off of his latest mixtape “GOSSIP,” following up the release of “ALOT X3” where he and Kharkhee connected, showing off both their clear chemistry and Kharkhee’s exceptional editing and direction skills. “GOSSIP” takes a stylistic detour from a good portion of the tape and certainly from “ALOT X3” as $odaman responds to the naysayers and pillow-talking that fuels his fire and openly addresses all of his recent success and encourages his doubters “Let’s talk about it,” and this confidence emanates from the entirety of SO DA TAPE 2.

Icewear Vezzo Stirs the Pot in “Richer Than My Opps”

Published

By

Having carved out a name for himself amongst Detroit rap royalty with his effortless bravado, offhand slick talk, and casual delivery, Icewear Vezzo has entrenched himself as a fixture of the city as both a rapper and entrepreneur. The competitive mentality and devoted persistence required to excel in each of those fields as Vezzo has are abundantly evident in his latest video single, “Richer Than My Opps,” available now. Driven by the infectious repetition of its titular hook and punchline heavy verses, the track finds Vezzo putting enemies on notice that they could never make flexing look so easy, so they might as well stop trying.

The video sees Vezzo posted in a kitchen that would look a scene from a ’50s sitcom if it weren’t for the racks, double-cups, and baking soda on the breakfast table. Flanked by posse at times and trapping by his lonesome at others, the visuals mirror the journey Vezzo took to become “Richer Than My Opps.” Though Vezzo flaunts the spoils of his success alongside his team, it’s his hands that stir the point, and what he cooks up can’t be replicated.

“Richer Than My Opps” kicks off Vezzo’s year in bold fashion as it arrives in the wake of his recent mixtape, Rich Off Pints 2, in September. The sequel to the Pitchfork-praised Rich Off Pints, ROP 2 explores Vezzo’s evolution from hustler to entrepreneur, elucidating the artist’s competitive mentality one track at a time. The 14-track project boasts over 65 million US streams to date, along with 4.2 million streams across catalog last week. ROP 2 follows Vezzo’s high-profile collaborations, including “Tear The Club Up” ft. Future and “Up The Scoe ft. Lil Durk, with the latter boasting over 13.6 million YouTube views and 42 million streams to date. Featuring additional appearances from Moneybagg YoRio Da Yung OGRMRBabyface Ray and more, Rich Off Pints 2 is available everywhere via Iced Up Records.

With Vezzo staying consistent, 2022 is his year. Stay tuned for more from the prolific rapper and entrepreneur.
