Spotlight: “Jeno Brown” by Jeno Cashh is nostalgic, yet pushes the envelope

Published

on

Jeno Cashh has been one of the hottest rappers in Detroit for some time thanks to his scorching delivery and distinctive style. He’s not afraid to switch things up at a moment’s notice; whether that’s finding inspiration outside of the city or involving concepts in his releases. He checks both of these creative boxes with “Jeno Brown,” a New Jack City inspired single that pays homage to one of the film’s most memorable scenes.

When New Jack City came out in 1991, it was unlike anything else in circulation. Its fearless portrayal of violence, sex, and drugs, was in stark contrast to the party movies like House Party that portrayed the time period as an extended festival. The movie would be an instant hit, spawning successful singles such as “For The Love Of Money” by Troop/Levert ft. Queen Latifah that would become instantly associated with the film.

“For The Love Of Money” is sampled in “Jeno Brown” and scenes from New Jack City are interspersed at certain points in the video. Certain lines of dialogue from the film are used, and the style of clothing worn by main man Nino Brown and his associates, in one of the film’s most memorable scenes, is worn by Jeno Cashh and his crew well. A lot of effort was put into seamlessly blending the two art forms to create a wholly unique product.

“Jeno Brown is an engrossing listen. Producer Antt Beatz provides Jeno with a Bay Area-influenced beat perfect for the rapper to let loose on. The bounce of it isn’t something you’d typically associate with the Midwest so it makes for a nice change of pace. Jeno does what he does best, releases a no holds barred, verbal assault sure to elicit a grin on your face.

The nostalgic feel invoked by the video’s style and unique beat choice make this one of the songs to beat this year. Jeno Cashh has released a banger that we’re sure will pick up steam in the near future.

O Racks, Rhoco Benjie & Zeeko Release “Im The Type”

Published

Following his collaboration with Pop Smoke affiliate Sosa Geek, O Racks (@TreeGang_racks) connects with Drake-producer Yozora for “I’m The Type.” Accompanied by Rhoco Benjie and Zeeko, the follow up to “We Made It” finds the New York native adopting a Detroit / LA influenced flow while boasting about his lavish lifestyle. The trio effortlessly trade bars over the bouncy beat setting the stage for the Tree Gang Entertainment CEO’s next release.

“In Hollywood everyone parties together. When you’re not an LA native you notice the locals taste in music. From what I witnessed, most people gravitate towards Cali and Detroit type beats because the energy makes it easy to dance to. So I told the producer to send me something in that lane. Soon as I heard it, the first verse just flew out – I’m the type of nigga start it up and air it out. The rest was history,” says O Racks when describing the song’s origins.

Born and raised in Hempstead, O Racks decided early in life he would pursue music professionally. Dedicated to the craft, O Racks began rapping and creating songs, even traveling outside of the tri-city area expanding his reach to Rhode Island, California, Atlanta, and Miami. With each release he acquired more fans and sharpened his skills, eventually catching the ear of Rich The Kid. The relationship spawned two records, “Prices” and “Look At Me, ” which received radio airplay soon after being released. Fast forward, he incorporated his independent music label Tree Gang Entertainment and took it to Hollywood.
