Spotlight: “Choppa Sound” by Snap Dogg proves he’s a rockstar over trap beats

Published

on

When the term “guilty pleasure” comes to mind, cheesecake and ice cream are two common items associated with it. These things are items that we aren’t supposed to consume great amounts of, but they’re so good that we can’t help it. Snap Dogg’s “Choppa Sound” is one of our guilty pleasures – as wild as it sounds, it’s something we can’t turn off. It’s a lot of things; nihilistic, angry, and threatening, but it’s also very good. In music, that’s what matters right?

The production on the track moves along at a breakneck pace, causing it to sound somewhat disorientating outside of car speakers. This messiness seems intentional; the song itself is about loving gun sounds that are messy. Under this guise, the song is brilliant. It captures the unpredictability and lack of uniformity that comes with gunfights and weapons in general. Snap Dogg’s rhymes add the icing on the cake; he goes in hard. There’s no wonder why he is rising at the rapid rate that he is.

The visual for the track features more guns than Ammunation from Grand Theft Auto. And that’s the point; the video – and song itself for that matter – isn’t the most thoughtful song on the planet. It’s music made by someone from the streets, for the streets. It happens to be a very well put together track that checks all the boxes of becoming a mainstream hit in the near future.

Check out the video for “Choppa Sound” below.

KETU Digs Deep On ‘Ano-Ele’

By

KETU (@Ketuikediuba) has finally released his debut EP, Ano-Ele. The smooth operator is ready to establish himself as a new voice in the industry. His sound is reminiscent of Sampha, Frank Ocean, and GIVĒON. Every record sounds like he put everything he could into it. The Nigerian singer/songwriter only needed 15 minutes to capture the essence of his latest project. Tracks like “Supernova” & “2020” tell a story of heartbreak and fear. For most, love is a scary topic, and anyone who has loved someone will feel these lyrics in their heart. KETU battles with his feelings on each of the five spacey tracks.

Ano-Ele’s acapella lyrics could stand alone as a book of poetry. There is not one wasted line on the new EP. His singles, “Sky’s Falling/From The Start” & “Rain On Me,” undoubtedly highlight the highly soothing listening experience. Fans shouldn’t be surprised if they hear one of these five records sampled on one of their favorite rapper’s upcoming albums. KETU’s eye for design can be attributed to his work as a digital illustrator with multiple Fortune 500 companies like The NFL, Netflix, etc. There is no limit to where his artistry can go.

KETU has found a new haven in LA. The HE(A)RD/Guin Records artist is in a great position. The summer will be fruitful; with his team credited for multiple records on Kendrick Lamar’s latest album, the sky is the limit. KETU’s signature sound will lead him to become one of the most sought-after voices in the industry. Ano-Ele will be regarded highly in his discography.

Chicago has been the only state that has continued to bring good and quality music to the people and the music industry. From South Chicago, G Ben was always inspired by music such as his father, James Stroud, as part of the 1970s hit song I’m Still Here on the US R&B Billboards chart.

Coming from the legend family, G Ben knew that music and building artists were in the game, and to keep the head high for his brand “Base Builders Co,” he had to move a little further from just wearing hats. His knowledge about music and witnessing greatness in the artist, led him to sustainable growth in the music industry.

G Ben had a dream of doing something BIG and not moving around with the name of his father, and as he has the genetics of music in his DNA, he influences people to go out with music. He was always determined to change his surroundings and began envisioning doing online business promotion and how he could change the nature of music from within himself to others.

Thus, with the launch of his agency “Base Builders Co,” he got a chance to promote new music comers and provide some strategies that help these upcoming music artists find new visions and platforms that help them succeed.

The online momentum has been engaging a lot of music lovers. And with the Placement of a Playlist and other Marketing tactics available on social media platforms like YouTube, SoundCloud, Shazam, Apple, and other hottest websites and blogs, the company has become a top-notch hub for new artists and followers, increasing to 1 Million. Base Builders Co has been supporting the people of Chicago to improvise the true vision of G Ben.   

The road towards competing with his vision was not easy, but G Ben stayed on his task of expanding the horizon of music and making connections for a legacy that will rule a lifetime.
