Cover Art of Majeur’s EP ‘Tha Ceremony’

Multifaceted, catchy and lyrically clever are a few ways to describe Majeur‘s artistic merit. The Cincinnati-based artist has been a vital voice in the Hip Hop community since coming out the gate and really puts a fresh spin on the genre with an atmospheric presence. And with the release of his 6-track EP ‘Tha Ceremony’, we get a fresh demonstration of Majeur‘s versatility and uniqueness that has made him a standout since the record dropped.

The first thing you’ll notice, especially on tracks like “Flight Ranger” and “5-19”, is the ambience and atmosphere in the beats. They bring out the perfect dose of sensuality and even space-like themes that really adds character to Majeur‘s vocal melodies and sing-songy style. His voice is diligently multilayered and has a smooth resonance that truly showcases a textured lyrical style, which carries both a crafty and catchy edge. The standout of the EP is the more upbeat banger “Lavish”. A super swaggerish track that combines the atmospheric signature sound this record showcases, and a club-going bassy punch that would sound nicely through a set of Sony Xplodes. It’s a great blend of tasty flavors of ambience and melody all wrapped up into one hypnotically addictive Hip Hop record that definitely stands out among the average SoundCloud crowd. This is an EP of well executed and professionally polished songs with diligent production value that pays attention to detail.

If you’re a fan of industry heavyweights like Lil Wayne, Drake and those alike, then Majeur is a major recommendation that you’ll thank us for later. ‘Tha Ceremony’ is available now on Spotify, Apple Music, and all other digital music streaming platforms.

Cover Art for Mad Man Smooth’s new single

Pomona, California’s Mad Man Smooth has been a pioneer in the Rap and Producer game and began hitting the ground running in the 90s. Known as a vital voice in the Hip Hop community, the Doc Madnezz Recording Artist has released an impressive extensive catalogue of albums and singles that have garnered him an insatiable buzz and fan base. Now, with the release of his newest single “To The Left”, MMS has raised the bar both for himself and his respective scene. And for good reasons.

With a fun salsa-like beat at the forefront with melodic melody choices, this track is a fire hot sensation from beginning to end with a style that balances both originality and familiarity. MMS‘s low-to-mid range voice is instantly noticeable and flows with a crisp clear approach that gets you to easily understand him. His old school lyrical vibe parallels perfectly with his modernized spin on a distinctive Hip Hop signature sound. It’s a flavorful delivery of skilled rhyming techniques that delves deep into both content and character all wrapped up into one big versatile musical package.

Another thing this track has going for it is the staying power, where the song stays with you even long after it’s over, and gets better each time you re-listen to it. MMS is extremely multifaceted and his artistic merit really shines on this song in a way that demonstrates several angles of his lyrical ability. This song is also a lead single to his upcoming 8th studio album, ‘Autonomous: Chapter V’, which drops on June 29th. We can’t recommend it highly enough. If you didn’t know Mad Man Smooth before, you do now.

Exclusive Review: Nahhdahh – “I Feel a Way (feat. Micky Marshall)” Single

Review by: Justyn W. Brodsky

Still shot from Nahhdahh’s music video for his single “I Feel a Way”

Comprised of vibes, flow and clever lyrical outbursts facilitated by an unwaveringly catchy chorus, Oakland-based rising Hip Hop artist Nahhdahh proves that he is on his way to being one of Hip Hop’s more vital voices with his newest banger “I Feel a Way”.

This track definitely has California vibes in all the right places. The beat structure provides more of a groove than your standard Hip Hop single, and provides a crisp and clear vocal execution that showcases Nahhdahh in the most effective ways. There’s also tour de force choreography from the video-featured dancer Micky Marshall, who breathes life into this video with smooth-as-silk dance moves and skilled articulation that gracefully captures an entirely different essence in this video like a time capsule. The song is also a mess load of fun and is definitely worthy enough of being on a night club and radio scene’s regular rotation. The production value is definitely a worthy mention, but one major standout is the authenticity and realism of Nahhdahh‘s mainstream-level voice. With a more aggressive tone similar to Ja Rule or even perhaps DMX, he boasts a flavorful approach that sets the tone throughout the song in a way that grabs your undivided attention. It’s the type of voice that others would believe comes from a mainstream artist.

Since “I Feel a Way” released onto the market, Nahhdahh has managed to garner an insatiable buzz throughout California and its regional surroundings, and continues to hit the ground running without intentions of slowing down anytime soon…or at all. The song is available now on YouTube and other digital music streaming platforms. Pick this one up if real rap is your thing.

Exclusive Press Release: P-81 – “Trapped Behind Bars” Single

Article by: Justyn W. Brodsky

Cover Art of P-81’s new single “Trapped Behind Bars”

Born and raised in Detroit, MI, Atlanta-based artist P-81 found his craft with rapping at the age of 12 and began hitting the ground running. With a vast array of influences from industry heavyweights like 2Pac, Biggie, Nas and a host of others, he quickly became a vital voice in the hip hop community and was destined to be heard. His clever lyrical wordplay, cool demeanor and harsh realities, makes him the perfect recipe for what the game has been missing – substance. In 2010, P-81 founded Men of Business Empire LLC and recruited best friend and business partner Kenneth “KC” Carter to hop on board. The two released a compilation showcasing some of Detroit’s best underground talent titled “At Work 1st Shift”. The MOB Train was moving and in full effect with the momentum to keep going.

A year later, creative differences caused a brief derailment in the movement and the established Artist/CEO began to put his focus on releasing a project of his own. In 2013, P-81 released a mixtape titled “City of Dreams” with features from Cash Kola (Detroit artist) and Black Ryan (Cleveland artist). This wasn’t your average club banging mixtape. The project covered several crucial topics that many stray away from within the industry out of fear of ridicule, judgment and/or being blackballed. After the release of the mixtape, tragedy hit home and P-81 had to put his career on pause for awhile and ultimately went on an indefinite hiatus. By 2017, things started to pick back up for the rising artist and eventually shifted back into gear. He began talking to his partner again about the prospect of revamping their initial movement, but doing it bigger and better with a much greater focus than before. And by 2018, the ball was well and rolling until tragedy suddenly struck again. This time with the unexpected and sudden passing of his business partner and 1/2 of the M.O.B. movement, Kenneth “KC” Carter. The two were rolling out a new movement called “F.A.M.O.” (For All My Oppressors) at the time and had incorporated a long term mentee and artist by the name Mic Brown as a key element.

In late 2019, P-81 was hit yet again with the worst tragedy anyone could ever experience…the loss of his oldest twin son. Unfortunately, P-81 was in a common situation that many men face today – fighting the system and mother to be a father to his children. His son was 16 years old and had just started to reach out to him for guidance when his life was suddenly cut short. This was extremely devastating as he prayed and waited for years to build with his sons. Unfortunately, many men don’t get a chance to tell their story until they’re behind bars. Though a free man, P-81 says he has a story to tell for fathers alike by speaking truth and spreading awareness…even if it means he’s “Trapped Behind Bars”.


The single is also available on Tidal, Spotify, Google Play, iTunes, and all other digital music streaming platforms.
