Good morning! Why not start Friday Eve off with some fresh lyrical fire… This is a new freestyle track from San Francisco native Rymeeze entitled “8PM At The Cliffhouse”.

The Whole Damn Mixtape: “Look No Further” by L.E.O. | @leo_nature5

Yesterday, the good folks over at The Bridge Promotion sent me the second single “It Won’t (ft. Light Lew) off of Houston native L.E.O.’s “Look No Further” debut mixtape. Sorry, y’all but L.E.O. is on point with his emceeing skills so I’m sharing the whole damn mixtape on my page. “Look No Further” provided a pleasurable listening experience for me last night and L.E.O.’s “Old School” track is my favorite track so far. With bass heavy tracks, above par lyricism, and an undeniable passion for hip hop, it’s evident that L.E.O. knows what he came to do. Look no further for an emcee’s emcee and enjoy!

“The Rush” by @Klokwize feat. Dayy (Official Video)

Klokwize, just know, after all this time we fam now. Getting an e-mail from your PR Team (when I have time to read them that is) is like getting a postcard from our favorite cuz. Thank you for rocking with us!

Fresh off the hills of releasing his single “The Feels”,  having his music aired on ESPN and expanding his writing credits with notable artists like DJ Quick and Suga Free, (Cousin) Klokwize released his visuals for his track “Rush” today.  From the jump this listener will already be told that this is an overall feel good banger – the kind of track you wanna ride to on a nice Saturday afternoon. The track and visuals include vocals from singer Dayy and also some classical hip hop elements – graffiti, a DJ –  and of course Klokwize demolishing the mic!! I’ve always admired Klokwize’s versatile expression when it comes to hip hop and “Rush” certainly does not disappoint. This one is a head nodder – kick back and enjoy!

“The Rush” is featured on Klokwize’s latest project, “The Super Hero Tapes” which can be purchased on iTunes.

“Black Excellence” by Terry Mak ft. Tey Cinco| @FlyTerryMak 

New Trinity Music Group artist (and someone who is not a stranger to The Greener Side of Hip Hop) Fly Terry Mak recently released his timely and inspirational track “Black Excellence”.  Never losing sight of his goals which is “Black Excellence”, from the gate (“I just wanna be / An example to my Gs) Terry Mak displays his “King shit” on this track and also acknowledges the eyes that have inspired us, fought for us, and are also watching us from above throughout the song -And if I die today/ They gonna treat me like one of the greats / Like Malcolm and Martin / I hear ’em talking to me like “It’s not too late!”. This a refreshing message and both Terry Mak and Tey Cinco don’t disappoint as evident in the passion in their lyrics and delivery. Stay on point, don’t get distracted, and enjoy!

Fresh Goods: “Peace” – by Know-Madik | @Know_Madik

Know-Madik: Fresh Goods artist with colossal hair. Above average emcee and lyricist, “Grade A” if you will. 

Know-Madik’s PR Team describes his “Peace” track as “an anthem for a generation tired of constantly seeing mass killings on the news, all the while blending woke lyricism with a jazz-influenced backing track”.  I listened to this track a couple of weeks back, and it sounds even better the second time around. Truth be told, I was actually caught up listening to several of Know-Madik’s tracks on SoundCloud THE FIRST TIME AROUND and his “Grade A” track solidified why I couldn’t ignore his skills when I first heard “Peace”.  Know-Madik delivers a sick, filthy flow on “Peace” that could actually be enjoyed without the backing of a track. “Peace” reminds me of Guru’s Jazzmatazz series and Digable Planets with well developed lyricism on a high speed train a la Talib Kweli (one of Know-Madik’s influences) – Execution done right. Y’all enjoy! 


“Peace” will be featured on Know-Madik’s upcoming self-titled project. Stay woke and follow him on Facebook.

“I See You Boy” – by Track Seven Band | @TrackSevenBand

Blending various genres of music from hip hop, rock, funk, and jazz, New York’s Track Seven Band has a sound that is bound to keep touching the masses. With tracks like “The Message” and “Doubt Me” Track Seven aims straight for the listener’s consciousness. Having released their EP “The Try And The Fail” in May, frontman Cost does not disappoint lyrically as he uses his personal narrative and unique delivery (I can hear a slight cool sounding accent from Cost by the way) to further solidify the band’s universal appeal. “I See You Boy” is another track off their EP which I absolutely love. You just have to respect Cost’s undiplomatic appeal (“Don’t think that I’mma let it ride, don’t think that I’mma let it slide…”) on this track!  But the real message here, is that we have to respect and uplift one another. We try. We fail. Right? Enjoy! 



Track Seven Band’s EP “The Try And The Fail” can be purchased on iTunes

Summer of ’69 Vibe: “King” by El-Blue | @Marty_McRhymes

Okay, I’m a sucker for confidence. With an ultra infectious, Summer of ’69 laid back vibe, El-Blue delivers just that on his track “King” from his EP entitled “Azalea Park”. The whole vibe of the entire EP is touted as “something to ride to”.  Production wise I agree, but it’s El-Blue’s organic, easy going flow that feels like a sip of wine for this listener. And yes, “King” is my favorite track – confidence. Enjoy!
