Chan-Lo No Comments

Dee-1‘s inspirational message is nothing new to those of us who have been following him for quite some time, but now the New Orleans-based emcee is taking that inspiration and turning it into truth on his latest single, “Against Us.” The Rick Beats-produced track is one that tackles the not-so-subtle ugly side of human relationships. According to Dee, “Against Us” is “a game-changing anthem that the world needs right now…[symbolizing] the war against negativity.” Check out the visual below.

Chan-Lo No Comments

If JMSN‘s mood music wasn’t already bringing babies to the world since the 2005, this “Street Sweeper (Remix)” featuring Freddie Gibbs might just bring his baby-making-music to its pinnacle. The collaboration, while somewhat confusion at its beginning, is seamless. JMSN calls on his ability to bring out the soul of a record while Freddie and his baby face blends smooth with both gangsta anecdotes and a sing/rap Bone Thuggish cadence which raised an arched eyebrow on this side of the screen. The record is a glimpse into the JMSN’s forthcoming Blue Album due out [...]

Keep Runnin’: Tink – Tell The Children

tellthechildren-750x750

Chan-Lo No Comments

“Tell the children to watch out, keep runnin.” Since Timbaland hipped us to her amazingness, the Tink train has been going strong and now the rising Chicago star has something important to say. In the wake of the Ferguson grand jury decision, Tink releases a song of consciousnesses. “Tell The Children” leans on Timbs signature drums and electro-infused synths for it’s build up, but it’s Tink’s disturbingly accurate lyrics (“He was more afraid of him when he’s the one with the piece?”) that hit home as Ferguson still burns. Listen up top.
