A standout track from My Favorite Color's debut album, Go!, gets a visual treatment.
Harlem hip hop duo ManKind commemorates the announcement of the abolition of slavery in Texas with the release of their album, Juneteenth (1820 - 1920), out today, Juneteenth.
Like their prior concept albums, ManKind keeps the lyrical content focused on the theme, delivering a compelling set about what life was like for Blacks living in Texas immediately before and after President Abraham Lincoln issued the Emancipation Proclamation in 1863.
“Sally Sue” (ft. SooFlyy) addresses the controversies of interracial dating. “Beneath The Flowers” (ft. Orunmila) shares dreams of freedom. “Spiced Redrum” suggests the psyche behind a slave rebellion. “Pledge Allegiance” questions expectations of patriotism amidst discrimination. The 10 songs include powerful, spoken word interludes and complementary, thematic production.

GV is a next-generation hip-hop artist with Brooklyn blood and the mind of a revolutionary. With a name like “GV”, meaning, “God’s Voice”, this man is on a mission to make a profound statement with his music. His most recent singles, “Exhale” and “Another Hit” seemed to come out of nowhere as a one-two punch, knocking people off their feet and putting GV on top. With a new eager fan base awaiting his next move, his brand new single, “Tunnelz”, along with its compelling, fully realized music video, is sure to be the song that breaks him through as the voice of change in Hip Hop.
Like many artists, GV was easily distracted in school, preferring activities like drawing and writing. In fact, this is where he began writing poetry at a young age. After junior high school, he moved down South with his family, first to the suburbs of New Jersey, and then to the city of Tampa, Florida. Tampa proved to be integral to the mental and artistic growth of this gritty, no-holds-barred artist. He tried out college life down there, which was essential for him to learn exactly what he did NOT want to do with his life. His parents were completely unaware of his talents until he independently released the “Power of Now” music video, waking them up to the fact that their son had been mastering the trade of hip-hop right under their noses.
Fast forward to 2017 - GV’s heartfelt new single, “Tunnelz” is his most personal effort to date. Written in the style of a confessional, this artist seamlessly weaves social issues and the day-to-day life of a starving artist into the fabric of the song. The instrumentals behind him showcase an old-school beat. A tight drum kit, surrounded by fluttering keys and a fat bass, is engulfed by the crackle of an old vinyl record, providing a profound nostalgia for the listener. The old school vibe juxtaposed with GV’s signature futuristic delivery makes for a truly memorable sonic landscape. Video production company, A1 Vision has become the visual keystone of "all things GV." This dream team have created a cinematic masterpiece to accompany “Tunnelz” with a visual that speaks directly to the zeitgeist gripping urban centers across the country. GV goes hard, spits a solid flow, his message is clear.... and he's impossible not to root for.
RSXGLD (aka the duo of Ro Spit and 14KT) stunt on their contemporaries in the fresh new video for their funky banger, “ICU.” It’s the latest we’re hearing from their highly anticipated joint album, which is now available!
First of all, hats off to 14KT for flipping a classic funk ballad into a underground Hip-Hop banger, because his instrumental absolutely knocks. It’s also a fitting backdrop for Ro to talk his sh*t, a characteristic he’s definitely become well-known for over the years. What’s interesting, though, is that “ICU” is actually one of the more bravado-focused tracks on RSXGLD, which you’re welcome to make that determination on your own by giving the full album a spin.
And similar to their previously released visuals for “I Believe,” “ICU” was also directed by the talented Perry Grone. That means you can expect crisp, remarkably edited visuals that emphasize the energy of the song itself. Ro and KT capture the raw energy of “ICU” as well, particularly when showing off their moves for the camera.
Check out the visuals, and head over to the digital retailer of your choice to stream or download, RSXGLD. The 12 track LP boasts features from Royce da 5’9”, Denaun Porter, Elzhi, JMSN, Ronnie McNeir and more, and is also available on both CD and vinyl , via Fat Beats Records.

Fresh off the heels of his latest visual, Train Of Thought picking up traction online and having a stint of going viral via popular platform UNILAD, London based rapper, AKS, keeps up the ante taking to the stage at the prestigious Sofar Sounds, which has played host to budding talents in intimate shows across the world as well as UK juggernauts. The likes of Emeli Sande, Lianne La Havas, Gregory Porter, Rag’n’Bone Man, & Ed Sheeran (to name a few) have all graced these stages and now we see AKS join the ranks of brilliant artists the platform has taken a shining to.
Accompanied by the amazing live band that’s seen him be championed across London’s live circuit, the three letter man delivers an emotionally charged performance of “The Dialogue (Talk to Me)” which appears on his Unsigned Music Award nominated “ Train of Thought EP ”, released last May.
Impassioned lyrics abound in this gripping performance as AKS painfully explores themes surrounding societal pressures, struggles with mental health, the feeling of being alone and the use of his music as a therapeutic outlet.
It’s clear that raw emotive delivery is fast becoming AKS’ trademark calling card and there’s heaps of it here in this soul stirring performance. A definite must watch.
