The Legendary JT Money recently dropped his latest album OG Perspective. A stand out and important song on this project to me was “Life Decisions” featuring the talented Adora Williams singing the hook. This song stood out to me due to the impactful bars that JT was spitting and the soulful hook that was rooted in self reflection and accountability.
OG Perspective is streaming on all DSPs!!!
So I caught this leak about a month ago on Youtube and the vibes feel good. Dre Izaya flipped his normal rap style and added melodic flows to some of his new work and this is an example. The Chicago MC is showcasing his versatility. “Room 4 Me” is produced by Disrupt, who is a constant collaborator with Dre. I love this song for the relatability as Dre let’s it be known ” … I’ont put in this work to end off as great friends, naw I need more than that … ” so he is making it clear to her that he wants to be with her for the long haul; and who hasn’t been there before? I know I have and I can appreciate his honesty. From his socials I can see he is working on a project (The Blue Tape Series) so be on the lookout for new music from Dre Izaya.
” … the realest rapper walking and I’ont need no gun in hand … ” proudly stated by Erik Jerrod on his new single and visual “Still Holdin On” which is an uplifting & empowerment song filled with smooth lyrical flows and thought provoking bars to match with more lines like “ … you know the one thing that makes a man trill is making sure your family str8 for real for real … ” & “… unbreakable spirit tough, they can’t kill us, the smartest thing we ever did, was never give up … ” which is so great to hear from an MC in today’s climate. This was shot in D.C. by Lionel Rawlings of lionskey_productions and captured sights, artwork and landmarks of the recent protests. I was truly impressed with the concept, his style of rap and the visual offering from Erik Jerrod, be sure to stream his new project “Let Whoever Think Whatever” Album Available Now: https://ffm.to/lwtw

Nate Joel is back with his Cook by Cook video series, this called 40 days & 40 nights. Shot by, Steve Muelz who continues to display his skills that enhance the visual experience of the immaculate rhyming on display. Nate Joel’s ability to craft bars to jab at your thought process with lines like “hard truths ain’t soft spoken” mixed with wittiness “Time is of the Essence I think I got a face for both” and self reflection “Only biting the fruit thats belonging to me, in event Eden is within, I’ve been planting the seeds” offers versatility that is much needed in today’s climate of Rap. All while showcasing his unique cadence with in pocket flows is an added plus as a listener and the pristineness that we hear can be attributed to the mix from engineer Vad Nole.
I’m excited to see what the future holds for Nate Joel, no matter what you know he gonna Cook boy Cook and with Steve shooting you will be entering a vibe. Be sure to follow them both and catch up on past videos. Links below.

The evolution of the artist formally known as B.i.g J The Frothy Main‘s musical career has been one of the most fascinating things to watch well over the last decade as he continues to expand his creativity’s sonic reach and charts another level of his evolution as an artist, incorporating new, versatile flows and revealing more aspects of his personal life and back-story.
The artist is formally known as “Frothy Main” now, “WangSolo” takes a trek across the world with his newest project The Last Wanger (EP), showcasing the many different forms of his music. The entire EP is like a melting pot of culture, with influences from soul, pop, reggae, and hip-pop with everything in between. “The Last Wanger” encapsulates and blends together everything that’s extraordinary about Alachua County’s modern music movement.
Hip-hop fans already knew he could rap, but “LatchKey” exhibits the unapologetic style and uncompromising confidence that makes him a star, but his penchant for complete vulnerability makes his records so engrossing that it’s hard to press stop — even though it may hit a little close to home for those with similar experience. Honestly, just play this album if you’re feeling lost and let it be your guiding light to tranquility.
