Rezt caps this year off with a seriously ridiculous Manitee produced banger. "OH MY" is one of those songs that finds itself in your head for days begging for repeats before you can even decide if you like it or not. Certainly off-kilter, there's no denying the infectiousness of this particular single. Kelow, Kelow LaTesha that is, nearly steals the show with a number of flow displays, melodic numbers and just flat out bars, that never take away from the uptempo crank. Black Kray shines as usual with one of his iciest verses of late, continuing his wrath of greatness. Rezt matches the offbeat crank with his own unique spin, on top of a ear-worm hook and closes out a truly interesting track. Expect a great 2016 from all of the aforementioned.
Its pretty hard to deny the rise of Mike of Doom over the past couple months. Since the release of his last tape 'Rookie of the Year', Mike has been hard at work releasing countless tracks and videos all while helping establish 'The Whop' as one of the hottest collectives in the area. 'The Campaign' does not disappoint, featuring tracks with Cal Rips, Kelow, Key Nyata & more. I don't know if its in the works but I am looking forward to a 'Houdini' remix.
So it's been two days since the "Free Ninety Nine" event, and I'm late with posting pictures. However, in my defense, it takes time to recover from such an immaculate turn up. If you missed this gloriously bumpin event presented by yours truly and Dead Art DC, then you must have been loafing to the max. Not to mention, the line up was on point. The collab between Rob Stokes Band and Dope Collective truly served as the kingpin to the night's great energy. Not to mention the fiery performances by the goddess Kelow, the one and only Hippo God of Kool Klux Klan Sir E.U., and the dynamic group CCL$ hailing from Baltimore. Oh, and did I mention that Flash Frequency's set was kick ass too?
Be on the look out for the next Free99 event, you're not going to want to miss out on this.
The Fa$tlife homie Bucky Malone played me this track a minute ago and I knew I had to premiere it. He recruits DMV standout Kelow for this track and the chemistry is undeniable. The track is gonna be featured on his new project "L.I.F.E.3:better then ye$terday" which is scheduled to drop 5/18/14. Make sure to keep your ears and eyes open for that. - JR
