This Old Freestyling Video From 2000 Proves That Kanye’s Gone For Good

Published

on

There’s nothing like a hungry emcee. Prior to rapping, when he was just a producer working with many of the greats of the early aughts, Kanye was eager to prove himself as a capable artist. Many labels were unlucky to sign him, including Rocafella, the label he was producing for at the time. In a recently unearthed video, Kanye lets loose a ferocious freestyle that sounds unlike anything we’ve heard from him in damn near ten years. It’s tenacious, thrilling, and, at the same time heartbreaking.

Kanye looked much younger here, but also hungrier. You can see the murderous gleam in his eyes; he’s out to prove himself. When he gets the mic, he goes off. His profanity-laced sermon reeks of the vistas of talent stored within his bow. After only a minute, the freestyle cuts, but the effect stays with you. This Kanye West endured throughout the early 2000s and until around 2010 before he became much too full of himself.

In recent years, Kanye has become a parody of everything he used to hold dear. From endorsing President Trump to saying that slavery was a choice, he’s nowhere near the iconoclast that he used to be. Even his raps are filled with corny punchlines and lazily-structured songs. It seems like the final curtain has been cast on Kanye the creative. From here, it looks like it’s only going to go downhill.

Let’s admire the once hungry Kanye one last time with this clip below.

@neelatheartist Releases “Let It Down”

Toronto-based, Vancouver-bred R&B-pop singer-songwriter Neela releases the new single “Let It Down” from her forthcoming EP Prelude. This song produced by Grammy Award-winning producer Chin Injeti (Eminem, Pink, Lecrae) marks her re-emergence back into the spotlight after releasing the memorable single “Can’t Let You Take” in March of this year. Neela’s new song “Let It Down” is a thoughtful and catchy R&B track with pop sensibilities that acts as a metaphorical call to freedom for all women who might feel constrained. “Let It Down is really about a woman being in control and owning her desires, her sensuality,” explains Neela. “It’s about being able to move freely without judgement, and walk in your own power. And that was a very important message for me to connect to.”

The clear path to orchestrating Neela’s career began in 2018 when her fashion-forward flair and layered sound had caught the attention of renowned producer Beatchild (Drake, Justin Nozuka, Tanika Charles) who produced her 2018 debut EP Lovers in Danger. Fast forward to today and “Let It Down” highlights Neela’s profoundly vulnerable lyrics and intentionally soulful pop sound.

Dash Flash Releases Debut Project as Latin Artist “Bendicido”

Published

Dash Flash is easily one of the east coast’s most dynamic and diverse artists. The Dominican-American hails from Groton, Connecticut but draws his inspiration from artists like 2pac, Nas and Jay Z as well as latin artists like Daddy Yankee. Since his initial viral hit “Mobbin” featuring D Savage in 2018, he’s followed up by collaborations with Lil Wayne, Rich The Kid, Zoey Dollaz to name a few. In the summer of 2019, Dash linked with latin trap upstart Gio Bulla for his first hit song in Spanish “Ella Me Da”.  

Since releasing his first Spanish song in 2019, Dash has done a full transformation into a Latin artist, embracing his Dominican roots to the fullest and ingratiating himself in the Latin-Trap/Reggaeton scene, collaborating with top producers and upcoming artists to create his latest project, ‘Bendicido’. The album title translates to blessed in English and is described by Dash as “Bendicido is a decision, to wake up in the morning and press on and move in, you have the power, you are in charge of your life. Things are gonna happen regardless, but you can choose to be bendicido.” Dash intently studied icons Don Omar, Arc Angel, Bad Bunny and drew inspiration from them and their music.

This project has ten songs featuring major artists: Jay Gwuapo, Rucci, Gio Bulla, MAAHEZ, Cypress Moreno & more. The project is 90% Spanish, with one hip hop track with Rucci. It gives a party and tropical vibe, since marketing towards women is very important in gaining a large fanbase, with some songs talking about real life situations (like the “En La Calle” song).
