“WelFare State of Mind” – SateLight Kool | @SateLightKool


Louisville, Kentucky native, SateLight Kool just dropped the first self-produced track from his forthcoming EP “Manifesto” entitled “Welfare State of Mind”.  According to SateLight Kool, the single highlights how one must open up our minds and find out our own truths in the world. Initially, this track reminds you of a kick ass synthesized version of LL Cool J’s “I Need Love” however SateLight Kool ices the cake with his dose of mental politics and lyricism, reminding listeners why his intent is to make you think –  “Nothing is ever as it seems and every meaning might mean something different from certain points of views.” Enjoy ya’ll!

“Lil Bit” (#FreeVerseFriday Series) – McDuff and V.A.Tha Gray | @YoMcDuff and @VAThaGray


I’m still not married to my blog yet, so label me LATE, but two weeks ago Dallas’s Nile Music Group kicked off another installment of their #FreeVerseFriday (and served up another one last Friday- listen here to V.A. The Gray’s “10 Bands” Remix ) with a version of K Camp’s single “Lil bit”. The track features the label’s standout artists McDuff and V.A. The Gray. Enjoy!

“Why Do That?” by Klokwize | @Klokwize (Directed by Antoine “Diamonds” Miller)

“Why Do That” is the latest visual from Klokwize’s current album “The Art of Falling Apart”. In this visual directed by Antoine “Diamonds” Miller, Klokwize gives us all rock and all rap AND ices the cake by allowing the guitarist to get wicked. My uncle was a lover of rock and roll thus I can appreciate the blending of genres on this track. This visual also reminds me of the early days of MTV – the Run D.M.C./Beastie Boys era that is. Check it out and enjoy!

“Picture That” (VIDEO) by SkyBlew | @HeySkyBlew

SkyBlew recently released the brand new visuals for his previously released track “Picture That”. “Picture That” will be included on SkyBlew’s forthcoming project “Race For Your Life SkyBlew!” on July 26th via Random Beats Music and can be pre-ordered here. The track and visual is a representation of the “mental pictures” that SkyBlew has taken along his journey and he’s sharing them with you, so let’s rock with SkyBlew and enjoy!

Rock With The Truest: “Remedy” by J-Essential | @TheFunkGrader ft. Spose

If I was to wrap up my Saturday afternoon right now I’d be relaxing at the park with a picnic basket, Mr. 6’3″, and this track right here. “Remedy” is the latest single from Brooklyn, NY’s J-Essential which also features iTunes charting emcee Spose from Maine. If you lie down on this track its only because the vibe feels too damn good. Listen and enjoy this music high compliments of The Funk Grader.

Jump Up On Couches: “Addict Venture” by Mike Melinoe | @MikeMelinoe


Detroit’s Mike Melinoe recently released “Addict Venture” which will be featured on his yet to be titled, upcoming EP. As usual Mike Melinoe delivers a sick and gritty rap style over a beat courtesy of Niles Mack (synth, boom-bap), that I just really, really love. His grittiness is authentic, not a style that he’s just trying out or changing up. This track paints a cool perspective for all who are addicted to and can’t kick their hip hop habit – you jumpin’ on couches too huh?  Enjoy!

#artistscanteatlikes: “youngfish.” (Time Release Freestyle Project) by Conscious | @Conscious


Oops he did it again! My favorite multidimensional artist and inspirational person is back with a new time release project entitled “youngfish.” Similar to his “audio journaling: unkempt” project, Conscious describes “youngfish.” as a freestyle multi-media project. In other words after downloading the project (click here) you’ll will be on the receiving end of some great exclusive material in a variety of formats from Conscious. Conscious NEEDS you to know that this is not a rap or hip hop album – “It just started with a rap verse.” I’d like to think of Conscious’s time release concept as having a mutually satisfying exclusive relationship with an artist and their music. You can stream the first track from the project entitled “youngfish.” below and then download the project for free ninety-nine or you can invest in Conscious’s art for the price that you think is right. Remember #artistscanteatlikes. Enjoy!
