F.S.F (FEARS, SMILES AND FREESTYLES) VOL. 1

Heavily loaded with the preconceptions of what it takes to make a true Texas artist in this EP Gin Oakain Freestyles with hopes to bring the listener closer to himself. His unexplainable ability to give his heart with no corrections or coercion to give anything other than truth plays throughout this EP.  – Sweargin

Performance: Nick Grant x NPR Music Tiny Desk Concert

 We already knew Nick Grant was a sick lyricist. Then he arrived at NPR headquarters with a mild case of the flu and quickly demonstrated why the title of his debut — Return of the Cool — should be taken quite literally. Hailing from a region where rap’s young guns and lil innovators tend to defy tradition, the South Carolina-by-way-of-Atlanta native proves being a purist is not just for the old heads.

Being cut from a vintage cloth has kept him in good company. He groomed himself on high school freestyle battles before working his way up to become the first signee to Culture Republic, the new partnership started by three of the most proven executives in the game, Jason Geter (T.I., Grand Hustle), Chaka Zulu (Ludacris, Disturbing Tha Peace) and Bernard Parks (Goodie Mob, Organized Noize). He’s a sly reminder that, contrary to popular opinion, the South still has a mouthful to say — and it doesn’t always have to be yelled, gurgled or Auto-Tuned to death. Sometimes it can be conveyed coolly, from a seated position, while backed by Washington D.C.’s soul garage band Black Alley, and still cut through all the noise.

Rich The Kid and Kendrick Lamar flex hard in their new music video directed by Dave Free and Jack Begert. In the gaudy visual, the flashy rappers ride in futuristic whips, hit a Chinese carryout and enjoy a wintry peep show. Is that on the menu? Rich The Kid’s Keep Flexin’coming soon.

“Power” is a reunion of sorts.

New Album: Tommy Swisher x Runaway To The Moon

Tommy-Swisher-Runaway-To-The-Moon.jpg

So I was checking my submissions today and came across this artist Tommy Swisher who hails from East St. Louis but resides in Atlanta.  He just released his new album entitled ‘Runaway To The Moon’ which is 11 tracks of soulful hip hop.  Tommy’s eclectic style of singing and rapping are a perfect mixture of vulnerability & strength,  while keeping the listeners vibed out on each song.  This project is entangled with experiences of a love that has had significant meaning in his life that maybe still is prevalent but seems to be or already has fleeted.  Tommy’s ability to bring a sound of authenticity in his songwriting and performances give me a feel of tenure which leads me to believe that we will be hearing about him consistently for years to come in the music business.  I was thoroughly impressed with ‘Runway To The Moon’, some stand out tracks are: “Alone”, Fall For Me”, “Tell Somebody” and my personal favorite which I think is a smash “Spirit”.  Take some time to check out this album it’s well worth the listen.
