The young god Aceology came through in the clutch with the Chopped & Screwed version of FREEDOM. People fell in love with the Chopped & Screwed version of The Black Velvet EP & kept requesting that I do the same thing with my last track so that’s exactly what I did. It turned out hella trill too. Peep.
This is my latest project in partnership with the homie BAZE titled #TheBlackVelvetEP. I dropped this a couple weeks ago & just got around to throwing it up on my own website lol. SMH. Either way, I released the project a couple days before my birthday, just as a fun project for people to have & the response ended up being incredible. Thanks to everyone who got to check out the tape & posted it up on their respective sites. Peep #TheBlackVelvetEP below.
For those of you who don’t know, Grande Marshall is not only one of the illest spitters currently on the rise, he’s also one of the realest people I’ve had the opportunity to know. Last time I kicked it with him in Philly, he gave me a run down of the Philly music scene, the street, the art, the culture, it’s relation to the current spectrum, & subconsciously even gave me a pretty dope glimpse of where he fit in the mix of it all. It’s dope to me when I can connect a person with their art & it’s genuine. He said something to me that I’ll never forget “You don’t have to be a street nigga to be a real nigga”. I couldn’t have said it any better. After having a killer set at last weekend’s Trillectro festival, he hits us with his latest project titled “800″. Roll up some good, & let this ride out.
SIDENOTE: I’m working on an artist profile project & he’s one of my first interviews so stay tuned for that.
Today I lost not only a brother but, a friend, colleague, & inspiration. My brother Avionadramida passed away due to medical complications & the shockwaves are being felt by our entire group of friends, family, & listeners. Avion was not only a teenage rap phenomenon, he was a comedic genius, prodigy, & had a passion for life & his craft that was unmatched. Let his memory & life be a shining example to us all not to take our lives for granted & to shine our lights properly.
Tomorrow there will be an Epic Chill Mob/Vigit at Art Under Pressure (4809 Georgia Ave NW Washington, D.C.) starting at 7p. Come through to pay your respects & celebrate the memory of the homie.
I remember the 1st time I heard his song “Android 17″ & saying to myself “Yo, who tf is this kid?”. I ended up doing a show w/ him & the rest of The Klan & that was the beginning of an incredible era that is sill far from over. He was a genuinely a good dude & I’m honored to have known him. Thank you for your presence & the time we shared baby bro. Endless respect & honor.
FINALLY! MENACE TO SOBRIETY 3: THE REEFERLUTION HAS ARRIVED! THIS ALBUM IS MY BEST WORK TO DATE & REFLECTS NOT ONLY MY MUSICAL PROGRESSION BUT ALSO MY PERSONAL, SPIRITUAL, & MENTAL PROGRESSION. THE REEFERLUTION IS SOMETHING THAT TAKES PLACE ON A GLOBAL LEVEL BUT, MAINLY AN INDIVIDUAL LEVEL. IT IS MY BELIEF THAT POSITIVE CHANGE AROUND THE WORLD HAPPENS WHEN WE LOOK WITHIN OURSELVES & AT THE WORLD AROUND US. IT JUST SO HAPPENS THAT MANY OF MY MOST INTROSPECTIVE MOMENTS ARE MARIJUANA-INSPIRED. IN CONCLUSION, THIS TAPE IS A JOURNEY THROUGH MY MIND. HOPE YOU ENJOY THE TRIP & THANK YOU FOR BEING PART OF THE REEFERLUTION!
THIS IS THE LATEST DROP FROM THE UPCOMING TAPE “MENACE TO SOBRIETY 3: THE REEFERLUTION” BEING RELEASED ON 4/20. THIS SONG’S A BIT MORE ON THE INTROSPECTIVE SIDE & WAS JUST INSPIRED BY A SESSION OF ME ROLLING UP & BEING TRAPPED WITH MY OWN THOUGHTS. BEAUTIFUL RESULTS, THOUGH. PEEP THIS VIA THE SOUNDCLOUD OR BANDCAMP. PEACE!
