[Video] Kev The Pope feat Jav – Where Were You (Shot By @vTapeken) @KevThePope

Published

Brooklyn emcee Kev The Pope has a message for the ones that didn’t hold him down on his new single “Where Were You” featuring Jav. “Where Were You” is the lead single off Kevs upcoming album Crazy Weird Cool Love set for release May 25th. Although this record explores themes of deceit and portrayal, Kev remains positive and his overall tone is more triumphant than defeated. With an instrumental that includes a modernized bop and flows from the two emcees that fit the progressive mold of today’s hip-hop, there is no reason why “Where Were You” can’t be worked in our current climate of the industry. This record has everything you want from a sonic perspective and when you package it with a quality visual from @vTapeken that is when everything starts to click. From the kitchen to Times Square, this visual really does a good job of bringing the song to life and symbolizing the journey that Kev is exploring on the record.

Kev The Pope has a unique journey and an interesting path that can be traced back to his days as a youth. Kev grew up in a musical household and at around 12-years-old he was already experimenting with sounds across all genres from hip-hop and R&B to pop and reggae. Not only was his direct family an influence on his musical path, but Kev was inspired by an unlikely hero, the late-great Sean Price. Sean Price is a hip-hop legend and god emcee who happened to live in the same building as Kev. Kev got a chance to rap for him at the park one day and Price liked what he heard, so he took him under his wing. Now that Sean Price is in a better place, Kev is carrying the torch and using all of the gems that Price gave him to keep the essence alive. Kev The Pope is only getting started and “Where Were You” is a testament to his progress, check out the video below and look out for Crazy Weird Cool Love on May 25th.

(Album) BhramaBull Releases “Evolution 3”

Published

on

By

Each year since 2020, BhramaBull has released a volume of his popular-growing “Evolution” album series. The A&R and owner of ‘Gryndfest Music Group’, looks to highlight the best and most buzzing indie / underground artists with every edition.

The first (2020) featured nine-tracks, with the likes of SkoHee, Lil Xelly, Tiing, Mischif and more, contributing their talents to the project. “Evolution 2” arrived the next year on September 17, 2021 — this time with one song less (8), featuring guest appearances from J-Haze, Chris Crack, Raz Fresco and many other talents.

Keeping his tradition going, today he delivers “Evolution 3,” and exclusively premieres the much-anticipated LP with UGHHBLOG. In celebration of releasing his third volume, Bhrama decided to step it up for the special occasion — and called for some major names. The biggest highlight is Rome Streetz on “Exit Plan,” a power-house lyricist who recently signed with Griselda Records. That alone can tell you the type of pen Rome has — as he has to keep-up and impress emcees like Benny, Conway and Westside Gunn. Other heavy-hitters include Def Soulja (“King Me”) from the Bronx, New York and 100GrandRoyce (“Rob Him Blind”) from a few towns over in Harlem.

Both Bub Styles and J-Haze return for their respective guest stops-carrying over from its predecessor — Bubs with track #2 (Shining), and J-Haze having two appearances, a solo track “Problems”, and “Lost At Sea” alongside DeGree.

Other quick-favorites are “Pockets” by Honda Carter from Canada, and “Paper Route” by Eighty Eight, a rapper / producer and engineer from Nashua, NH. All in all, “Evolution 3” is another solid showing of up-and-coming talent, curated by BhramaBull. ‘Check E Out’ also contributed as an A&R for the project.

The project was recorded at Ultrium Studios and Neighborhood Watche Studios in Los Angeles, California. It was then mixed and mastered by engineer Steve Glaze at Tone Freq Studio in San Jose. Artwork by DinnerLand C/O / ShakeVideo.

Nigerian artist Cue’s newly released visual “Ayo” is relatable across many demographics of people. Dates in the park, intimate dinners, and the prolonged uncertainty of where the night will go is a part of social norms. With time, those in relationships can relate to experiencing a profound emotion towards someone they care for deeply. Painted in his native Igbo language, sprinkled with pidgin, we can get the sense that this young man has no problem making his loved one feel cherished when they’re together. The slow sensual afro-beats cascades into listeners’ ears setting the mood to engage in romantic activity.

(Video) FTL Jaii feat. Ezri – “Kim K”

Published

By

FTL (“From the Land”) Jaii releases self-made success story on his witty rap anthem “Kim K” featuring fellow Cleveland-native and rap powerhouse Ezri. Produced by Loko La’Flare, “Kim K” is chalk full of silky, luxurious piano beats and melodic percussion. FTL Jaii rises above the track as an empowered rap force to be reckoned with at the young age of only sixteen.

Directed by Joni Spielberg, the music video for “Kim K ” follows FTL Jaii and Ezri as they deliver an explosive performance in dark alleyways and graffiti-stroked stairwells. It’s a hard-hitting single that discusses the recognition of greatness in oneself. FTL Jaii writes, “They keep on sayin’ I’m chosen/ I tell them I know it.” The hook of the song is a pop culture reference to Kanye and Kim as FTL Jaii says, “Like Ye bro can’t go without his K like Kim.” “Kim K” is a modern, prolific, celebration of the self as FTL Jaii and Ezri emerge with a power-punching new rap single.

FTL Jaii is a sixteen year old rap artist from Cleveland, Ohio. He has been acclaimed by Talk of the Land and won Rookie of the Year in Hot Music Cleveland in 2021. His latest single “Kim K” will be featured on his EP Hottest Youngin this November.
