TGM curated its first open mic of the year this past Saturday at the Alfa Art Gallery in New Brunswick, NJ. Hosted by Ramsey of What’s The Movement and King Letty of Who Did You Meet, TGM chose three special guests to help bring the vision to life; Tevin J. Reese, SIS, and Macc McCray. The event was focused on J.Cole and his growth from the beginning as a rapper and artist. Additional artists had the opportunity to sign up to perform and a chance to win a FREE studio photo shoot by BeezShotMe. Take a look at some of the performances below!
Director Nimi Hendrix nailed the essence of a storytelling with his latest music video for two prominent New Jersey artists. Tax G and Albee Al teamed up nicely for their latest song together, “How I’m Comin”, and now continue to create a buzz surrounding the song with a new music video. Both NJ artists made sure to keep NJ at the forefront as you get glimpses of DJ Wallah, Cruch Calhoun and Chad B. The video is a story of being locked up and held down for some time but still having the ability to evolve even after imprisonment. The song captures both sounds of the artists very well, now giving you a blend in front of the camera you don’t want to miss. Take a look and comment!
Cash Sinatra is back with something to keep your ears buzzin as summer begins to pick up. He shys away from dropping something new and chooses to freestyle over “Oochie Wally” by Nas and the Bravehearts which was released in 2000. The freestyle picks up quickly while the he matches the energy of the beat effortlessly. I liked his flow over the beat and his subtle punch lines that he delivers to keep you entertained. Short and sweet, and better yet, dope from beginning to end. Check it out.
After only being seconds into this video, I could tell that it has the potential to be utterly powerful. Unchained executes an eye opening visual for his latest song “Hurricanes”, that will keep your mind going and replaying the images displayed long after the video has ended. During the music video you get to see the artist struggle choosing between various doors of struggle and pain and he attempts to find his way. It is very symbolic and sets the tone for the rest of the video and the lyrics of the song. I appreciated how he kept featured artist E in a separate space, allowing his vocals to break up the song and ultimately the video. Check it out and comment below.
I won’t say too much since you’ve most likely have been jammin to Karma’s new single, “Make Me Say” already, but then again, this artist has given us more than song to take a look at. The sultry R&B singer released the official video for her new song and it’s something you will definitely enjoy. The video shows her getting ready with some friends before she meets up with love interest or rapper played by SōULFULL, for a romantic dinner. Directed by Money Long Media, the video shows her in a fun and sexy light and gives you something to watch as you jam to her voice. Check it out and comment below!
SoULFULL Sundays are back and in full effect with some new bars and sounds for the rap heads. Franklin native released his new single, “Come On” this past Sunday as he makes his way back onto the music scene as a solo artist. He’s had a busy year with two joint projects with artist Ty Jack and Karma respectively, but he’s back to putting out music and reminding his audience that he’s still evolving. Produced by J. Dilla, its slow and steady beat matches the manner of his come back as an individual artist. Take a listen and comment below.
Chaos usually erupts when multiple artists of different backgrounds appear on one track, but Fredfades has created something memorable on his latest single from his new LP entitled Warmth. The Norway artist fuses his music alongside featured artists Moruf, MoShadee and Ivan Ave on his intro song “Cold”. The beat is what catches my attention first, reminding me of something out of the 80s. Then each artist takes a turn on the track and flows right into the next with a subtle chorus serving as a bridge between the verses. The song is uniquely catchy and pulls the audience in enough to want to hear more, which is always the goal. Check out the single and full LP!
