MojoDead – Cloud10 (EP)

by .

PRODUCERS: Ethereal, Demitri Montour, Chris Bedan
ENGINEER: Chris Bedan

4 tracks of sheer mayhem with an elegant overtone. Cloud10 is an addition to the warfare that MojoDead has initiated. The Denver rapper continues to give us something to stir up this year’s lyrical debate, adding fuel to the fire that he ignited months and throwing a tantrum on the thrown that he’s claimed all in the same breathe.

The introduction to Cloud10 is a straight body blow produced by Ethereal called, “Stuck”. Perfectly titled, of course. It features a strong, bass filled beat that MojoDead manipulates flawlessly with his speed bag of rhymes and throwing a hay-maker or two ever so often. Never missing a punch. Reminiscent of the generations greatest fighter, in which the track is obviously themed after.

A treasure chest full of gems such as “Feel Me” and “Top Floor”. This man and his army in Colorado is a force to be reckoned with and should never be taken lightly. Doing it in the most organic and arrogant way so far. Not only does this seem like it’s sport to him, but it’s child’s play in some way. Convincing me that he has something dynamic hidden up his sleeve and this is barely the tip of the asteroid. I just pray that the world is ready for the turn up before time runs out.

by .

PRODUCER: Infinite Amo

A month after dropping off his latest heater, Jacksonville’s Stokely Carmichael comes back with the ultimate flame. “Spike Jonez” is a sure smash. Infinite Amo lays the head knocking instrumental for the We Were Never Friends representer to completely demolish. A deadly display of lyrical power, song structure and sauce. Stokely Carmichael builds up the anticipation for his I NO LONGER FLINCH AT THE THINGS THAT I USED TOO to new levels. Stay on the look out for this onslaught and the next drop from Stokely Carmichael.

by .

PRODUCER: Camgothits
ARTWORK: RichHomieToine

Orlando’s Yung GoosyMane takes his step into the spotlight with “Paid My Dues”. One of many standouts and the intro track on his latest project, The GoosyMane & Friends EP. Following a brief inspirational conversation piece featuring Ghead called “Ghead Skit”, The track vividly gives insight into Yung GoosyMane’s hunger to be the best in the game. He reminds the world that moments like that are what molded him into the artist that he is today. The production is by Camgothits. Featuring GEM, all while flowing fluidly, they both still remind us that even though the track this hot, for them, it’s effortless now. We have a feeling that bigger and better is to come, and we’ll be waiting for it. Until then, take a listen to “Paid My Dues” above.

South Florida once again has one. Listen as she goes in.

Blxxdshot – PISTXLXN (Prod. Avila)

by .

PRODUCER: Avila

Helping us continue our outreach to those in further territories, we’ve found a rap heavy hitter in the making. By way of Puerto Rico aka Muerto Rico, Blxxdshot drops off an A-grade onslaught of rhythm and rhymes, as he uses multiple angles to attack our ears and brains on this hard knocking banger “PISTXLXN”, as he switches flows and languages like a driver switches lanes. The San Juan representing and rare english speaking emcee on the island, Blxxdshot proves that distance from the mainland matters little when you got the sauce. Grabbing another native Puerto Rican, Avila, to provide the body swaying beat with a hypnotizing Spanish sample filled throughout. Blindsided by the distress  that Puerto Rico has faced after Hurricane Maria, Blxxdshot makes a statement with “PISTXLXN” to hold strong and continuing to push through until he’s on top of the rap game.

And as us Floridians understand the hurricane related struggle that Puerto Rico is triumphing through, we would collectively like to say #FuckMaria. Here is a link to how you can help the victims of Hurricane Maria.
