Long Live The King: Dr. King’s Subtle Influence On Hip-Hop

We all know that Dr. Martin Luther King Jr has had a tremendous impact on the African-American community, and humanity as a whole. His ideals and commitment to justice and peace for all was unrivaled during his time. Still to this day, his message has made a lasting impact on American society, as evident to the national Holiday we have to celebrate his life and legacy. As we take this moment to reflect on Dr. King, I couldn’t help but to connect the dots on his influence to this Hip-Hop culture that we love so much. How you might ask? Sit tight, and I’ll explain.

#Smarterhiphop #Submission by @TSVI announces new EP, ‘Rambo’, on Nervous Horizon > Listen to ‘Jaguar’ ft. @Wallworkhere

‘Rambo’ EP
(Nervous Horizon)

Release Date: 26th January 2018
Pre-Order: http://bit.ly/2AIXDrD

stream / share / enjoy first track ‘Jaguar’ ft. Wallwork here:

premiered by Tiny Mix Tapes:

Inspired by a fluid mix of global club sounds including UK funky, kuduro, techno and rap, Nervous Horzion co-head TSVI is to kick off 2018 with the release of new EP, ‘Rambo’.

Comprised of six tracks, including collaborations with DJ JM and fellow Nervous Horizon boss, Wallwork, as well as a bonus remix from Luru, ‘Rambo’ details how TSVI’s sound continues to evolve, taking on bold new shapes in the process.

A natural extension of 2016 EP, ‘Sacred Drums’, here he scopes out fresh influences that can be felt right the way through the tracklist. From the blaring kuduro flavours on opener ‘Pull Up’ to outright UK funky club jam, ‘Funky T’ and sparse, frenetic drum workout ‘Roller’, TSVI meshes together a network of powerful, drum-centred tracks.

Features from DJ JM and Wallwork bring new focus to his work too, with ‘Jaguar’ — a cranking, off-piste drum exercise hit by bursts of sharp, metallic synth melodies and zapping bass stabs — spotlighting inventive sound design and abstract thinking.

A bold marker for a producer already at the top of his game, ‘Rambo’ forms the perfect 2018 lift-off point for one of the UK’s most exciting young club labels.

#Smarterhiphop #Submission by @deal_thevillain Album Deal The Villain + Madlib | “Jackson Jones”



With only 8 days into the new year [2018], New Jersey artist Deal The Villain [Sean Jones II] is straight out the gate with an absolute gem of an album, after releasing his under-appreciated EP "Beards, Beats & Kicks" earlier in 2017, the Garden State lyricist spent the rest of last year silently locking himself away in the studio plotting this surprise concept. "Jackson Jones" lyrically illustrates a collection of distinctive beats by one of the greatest producers in Hip-Hop, Otis Jackson Jr. aka Madlib. Even though the album is 15 tracks deep its runtime is only around EP length, each one designed to be as concise and succinct as possible sitting under 2 minutes long. "Jackson Jones" is a uniquely cohesive fusion of Deal The Villain [Lyrics] and Madlib [Beats] that can only be heard via Bandcamp. Give it a listen, and share if you want. Happy new year! #dealthevillain #madlib #jacksonjones

Jamie Hancock – Hennything (Music Video)

Houston up-and-comer, Jamie Hancock releases the music video for his single "Hennything" inspired by the feeling some of us get when we are in silence but our thoughts flood the room with sound. Jamie puts his personality on display for the viewers to connect by taking the less is more approach. The video is simple but creative in the same space. You can say the video is a trip inside of Jamie’s mind. The colors are a dark tone, but bright at the same time. The song is smooth, but throughout the video Jamie is hype. This highlights Jamie’s self-need for balance. The video is directed by THEM (Gage McRae & Justin Dunnigan). Watch the music video for Hennything below.

2017 was just the beginning for Maryland rapper, .idk. Coming off the release of his critically acclaimed album, IWASVERYBAD [HXLY/Commission Music], and a victorious European run with Joey Bada$$, the PG County artist keeps the momentum moving into the new year with "(HELLO PT. 3)." About the freestyle, .idk. says, "“Every year I like to make a ‘hello’ and challenge myself to make it better than the last.” With no signs of slowing down, .idk. fires off bar after bar, giving fans a fresh spin on the new, Southside-produced Gucci Mane track, "Peepin Out The Blinds." "I know I’m the best/If you look back at history they be ignoring the best/And you show them the sweat/Bitch I’ve done been in the sauna for years I ain’t passing out yet," .idk. spits with fury. The freestyle comes a month before .idk. embarks on a nationwide tour with A$AP Ferg and Denzel Curry, starting February 28th, 2018 in Philadelphia, PA. Find tour dates below and tickets here: jayidk.com

.idk. (FKA Jay IDK) has been making significant noise since teaming up with Adult Swim for the release of his full-length soundtrack LP, IWASVERYBAD. An all-star cast of guest features include DOOM, Chief Keef, Swizz Beatz, Del The Funky Homosapien, Yung Gleesh, and Mother Marygold. IWASVERYBAD serves as an autobiography as told by a true visionary who’s spent years to get here. Don’t miss .idk. on tour during his breakout year!

"The badass rapper from Prince George’s County, Maryland has been on the fast track to success since the release of projects Subtrap and Empty Bank, but it’s his recently released album IWASVERYBAD that has his name in the mix of hip-hop’s impending elite." – Paper Magazine

"Where [Kendrick] Lamar’s stories detail narrowly escaping trouble, IDK’s seem quietly thrilled by dabbling in it and successfully making it back in one piece."

"IDK was able to use his mastery of storytelling to manifest a personal masterwork."
