GenoDa1 – ’92

by .

PRODUCER: N/A

After one listen, I admit, I was hooked. Now this track is on repeat. Fresh off of an exclusive interview with Cassandra of CitrusRap’s The Juice, Homestead’s very own, GenoDa1, comes through with the mean scriptures on “92”. Helping push his brand and Florida’s hip hop scene to new and improved levels. GenoDa1 enlists the boom bap sound, of what’s considered rap’s golden age, to deliver with the spiritual and string filled beat. Lines full of self confidence and righteousness, as well as resentment and pain. There’s so much insight in this song that should not be over looked. I shouldn’t have to persuade you what to do. Like, share and put this on repeat. Then thank us later.

#TBT: Robb Bank$ – Fine$t (Video)

by .

DIRECTOR: Unkle Luc
PRODUCER: Clams Casino

“Now that’s love to my bottom bitch, kisses to my new hoes..
Pour ’em up Dirty Sprite, tell ’em that it’s Nuvo..”

Florida summers in 2012. Today’s youth were running wild, full of untapped potential. All nights were filled with what seemed like unlimited vices. And it seemed as if every beautiful girl in high waisted shorts wanted to reenact this music video.

Three years later, Robb Bank$ has grown into stardom with a cult like fan base and the resume to follow. “Fine$t”, along side with “Counting” that both appear on his album “Calenders”, is believed to be the spark that set his path ablaze.

“I’m yo’ ho favorite shit, next to semen
You can’t see me
Bitch, I’m puffing peyote out on the tipi
Counting Slumdog millis
Got Latika on her kneezy
Be easy”

A continuous onslaught of fluid motion in his rhymes. Wave like flows of sorts. Lyrics detailing his adventures with past lust interests and love for Dragonball Z. The Clams Casino-produced track delivers a brief glimpse into Robb’s life. He not only gives his ex-girlfriend a name drop, but uses the line in his advantage to flex a little. With an meditative instrumental to back the vocals.

Unkle Luc, now as prominent of a figure to rap culture as the man starring in this video. Always providing innovative effects and perfect visuals to a side of the sunshine state’s wildlife, on a day that most of the native youth live out ritually.

“Fine$t” ultimately was a part of the album “Calenders” which received critical acclaim and became one of the blueprints to the new age’s music development. And with how things have been going for both Robb Bank$ and Unkle Luc, they will continue to change the frame of Florida’s culture and it’s art.
