Somebody Type of Movement Scruffy Dat


No Comments

Today we head on over to the Bahamas to meet Scruffy Dat with his track ‘Somebody Type of Movement’. Scruffy was first introduced to music by watching her mother listening and writing out lyrics at age 7, she then began to mimic her mother and do the same. Scruffy always gravitated towards music throughout her life. She was even DJ Scruffy at one point. In 2001, she began writing dancehall inspired by some big names like Sean Paul, Lady Saw, and Mr. Vegas. During this time she had the opportunity to open for reggae artist Bush Man. Later in her career, 2005, she would form her own DJ group named Kiah’s entourage. This is how she made a name for herself on the island.

In 2016, she would begin her transition from Deejaying to writing rap music. She is heavily influenced by Missy Elliot, Lil Kim, Timbaland, Lil Uzi, Lauryn Hill and Juice World. That is quite a variety of artist which is why it is said she has a sound all her own. She combines Hip Hop, R&B and Reggae in her music. She released her first song to Soundcloud in 2016 and was then motivated to continue her musical pursuit by the positive feedback she received. Over the past few years she has been honing her skills and officially releases ‘Somebody Type of Movement’ in 2019 garnering a ton of positive media attention. So let’s get right into it and see what Scruffy Dat has to work with.

My favorite Song Karma Rivera


No Comments

Today we head over to Portland to meet Karma Rivera and check out her latest release My Favorite Song. With not much more to go off of let’s get right into the music and see what Karma has to offer.

Thoughts on My Favorite Song

Karma has a very niche voice style and it is not for everyone. I do not feel that My Favorite Song is her best work. Lyrically she does well but the cadence could use some work. There are a few lines where you can chuckle. As mentioned this is not her best and I couldn’t get through it the first time. Can’t Trust is a better showcase of her sound. You can listen to the song for yourself by following this link: https://open.spotify.com/track/4qP4h8go4uMPwfANW3Ulvu
