Logic – Under Pressure

logic-under-pressure-deluxe-artwork

I recently discovered this rapper called Logic. He just released his debut album Under Pressure and I think it’s worth hearing for true hip hop lovers.It has remnants of Kendrick Lamar’s Section 80 album but with a few fresh elements. He recently gave a dope freestyle on the BET cyphers that happen during the BET Hip Hop Awards.He is now signed to DeF Jam Records. If you haven’t heard of him you can stream his album on Spotify and decide how you feel.

G-C – Reanimated (Free Music Download)

It took me 6 months to create what I consider my most diverse sounding piece of work. In an age where people believe in singles and music has become so disposable, I still believe a true artists is measured on entire projects. A single is like a corner piece, and a full length project is the entire puzzle. I spent so much time looking for the right beats, writing the right songs, featuring the right voices and creating songs that that sound nothing like each other. Reanimated is my gift to music and to you, and it’s free. THANK YOU FOR DOWNLOADING!!! Enjoy the ride.

The Oppi Koppi 2014 Odyssey Experience

07dd66c6a32d4b85bcfa9dede57c9f1d

Wow, I am still in a state of complete and utter shock. I am also floating somewhere between fatigue and alcohol poisoning. Anyway,let’s get down to it! So I went to Oppo Koppi this weekend (FYI: Oppi Koppi is a 3 day music festival held in Northam, Limpopo Province, South Africa every year). I have always heard about it but never had the chance to go, well this year I did. It’s 3 whole days of camping, dancing, drinking and all kinds of debauchery you can get up to out in the wilderness. I was not ready! From my arrival I knew it was going to be interesting. The main part of Oppi Koppi consists of stalls for food, drinks, clothes, chill areas, and 6 music stages.

Now at this point I find it necessary to point out the fact that I didn’t take nearly as many pictures as I should have. So the experience I had is something hard to describe, but I will repeat that I wasn’t ready. There is always music playing somewhere, and always someone new to meet. I met a lot of different, crazy and interesting characters. I roamed every corner I could of that place and discovered a new adventure every time. The people are just in a happy spirit and Oppi being a predominantly white event, I must say I felt welcome as a black guy in that environment. The music was my favorite part, I partied like a fucking rock star the whole time and discovered talent I previously didn’t know about. I spent a lot of my down time at the Mtv tent meeting people and drinking absolutely non stop. I won’t lie though, that place was like one giant obstacle course. But in conclusion it was wonderful, an experience I am so happy to have gone through, I will never be the same after that. To my fellow black South Africans who want to experience this country in a different way, you have to go when you get the opportunity. Whether or not I will go back again next year? I will let fate decide. Now let me end this with a phrase I picked up at Oppi; IN DUST WE TRUST!!!!!

Marlon Roudette – New Age (Video and Lyrics)

I haven’t updated in forever but I had to share this song. I hadn’t heard it in forever and I stumbled across it recently. It was a really beautiful song. If you have never heard it I am sure you will enjoy it.

If love was a word, I don’t understand.
Simplest sound, four letters.
Whatever it was, I’m over it now.
With every day, it gets better (it gets better)

Are you loving the pain, loving the pain?
And with everyday, everyday
I try to move on.
Whatever it was,
Whatever it was,
There’s nothing now.
You changed.
New Age.

I’m walking away, From everything I had.
I need a room with new colours.
There was a time,
When I didn’t mind living the life of others.

Are you loving the pain, loving the pain?
And with everyday, everyday
I try to move on.
Whatever it was,
Whatever it was,
There’s nothing now.
You changed.
New Age.

So much fire that it burned my wings.
Her heat was amazing.
Now I’m dreaming of the simple things.
Old ways, erased.
If love was a word,
I don’t understand.
The simplest sound,
Four letters.

Are you loving the pain, loving the pain?
And with everyday, everyday
I try to move on.
Whatever it was,
Whatever it was,
There’s nothing now.
You changed.
New Age.

Loving the pain, loving the pain?
And with everyday, everyday
I try to move on.
Whatever it was,
Whatever it was,
There’s nothing now.
You changed.
New Age.
