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.

Coming out the gate from the Tampa Bay, Florida music scene, rising Hip Hop artist Wayz has been creating a respective buzz in his regional area. He’s been a vital voice in the Hip Hop community that is set out to make a difference, and legitimately proves this with his newest Rock-inspired single “On God”.

This track, accompanied by a cinematic official music video, is a beyond solid banger that is comprised with a slamming rhythm section, clever beat structures, authentic lyrical punchlines and a heavy chorus that cranks up the energy like no other Hip Hop song. Wayz‘ flow is not only smooth and crisp throughout the song’s mix, but is also executed in a way that effectively showcases his craft in many angles. His rhyming techniques are genuine and real, and possesses a unique story-telling method that gets you to resonate with his message. He’s an accessible artist as well, a rapper that isn’t afraid to bring fresh elements to the table to enhance a genre that can tend to succumb to repetitiveness. But Wayz doesn’t have time for half-hearted songwriting – Wayz is truly touching on an innovative sound that has inventive musicianship and artistic value; components that truly make him a one-of-a-kind artist and standout among his respective genre.

“On God” is also a song that’s part of an unreleased documentary which showcases shots of meaningful places that are in Wayz‘ hometown area. The music video also touches on this idea and boasts a very well executed and diligently shot production. It’s something you’d have to see (and here) to believe. The track is available now exclusively on YouTube. You’ll be more than glad you checked this one out.

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.

Review by: Justyn W. Brodsky

There’s some serious heat coming off this single. Packed full of swagger, confidence and a powerfully upbeat approach, Hip Hop artist St. Geo comes out swinging with his newest hit single “Like Belly”.

Attributed to the 1998 film (Belly), “Like Belly” is the second single from St. Geo‘s highly anticipated upcoming album ‘Stomach’.

It balances originality and familiarity, giving the listener a sense of something fresh and identifiable; making “Like Belly” a standout of its caliber. This track will definitely entice you to check out St. Geo‘s catalogue of releases, including his upcoming album. You can’t go wrong with this song.

Exclusive Review: DJ Raw B – “Uncorrupted” Album

Review by: Justyn W. Brodsky

With a dynamically versatile style and several decades in the business, it’s no wonder pioneer artist/creator DJ Raw B has garnered unwavering accomplishments over the years. And he continues to do so with his latest album ‘Uncorrupted’.

Combining a raw, unique 90s approach with a clever modern spin, this album is a blast of nostalgia as well as a breath of fresh air. The production value is high quality and provides the perfect textures to make this record really stand out both musically and lyrically. Tracks like “Toscin” and “Genesis” have classic 90s grooves with smooth beats and eclectic twists and turns that really showcases DJ Raw B‘s signature sound, while other tracks like “Unspeakable” and “Keynote Speaker” have hauntingly ambient vibes that balance atmosphere and smooth bass lines, and are easily the standouts of the album.

DJ Raw B is no stranger to the industry though; he began hitting the ground running in the early 90s as a co-host/DJ for the critically acclaimed underground San Francisco-based hip hop show Beat Sauce, who brought on a plethora of notable guests including industry heavyweights like Jay-Z, Eminem, OutKast, Common, the Black Eyed Peas, Mobb Deep, among many others. By 2001, DJ Raw B became “Best Local Club DJ” in the San Francisco Bay Guardian, playing shows that ranged from underground hip hop clubs to more lavish higher-end venues. DJ Raw B also got involved with many different collaborations, including Smash Mouth’s performance of their hit song “All Star” in the movie Rat Race. He has also garnered success in the radio circuit, including working on KMEL’s “Sway In The Morning”, KCBS News, and KNBR’s “Morning Show With Murph & Mac”.

With a resumé like that, it’s no wonder that ‘Uncorrupted‘ has the uniqueness that it does, and you can very much hear a successful and skillful DJ throughout every track’s duration. And if you haven’t heard DJ Raw B yet, then this album will make you an instant fan. The album is currently available online and all digital music streaming platforms.
