Teez – R.E.N.O (Real Everything No Ops)


No Comments

Tongan rap artist Taholo Vainuku aka Teez is set to release his powerful debut album R.E.N.O (Real Everything No Ops) on Friday, September 27th via tastemaker label Mensch House Records! Teez has dived into the core of the rap and hip-hop genre, mentally cultivating his lyrical style, and ambitiously, yet quietly, focusing on the development of his craft: a craft to set him apart from the crowd. Teez recently dropped a new single ‘Lit Bae,” “a bouncy upbeat single for the ladies,” according to Underground Hip Hop.

Through childhood in a Reno project, music served as a safe haven for Teez, allowing him to ride into an escape on the beats and lyrics, often of the legends, Tupac and Bob Marley. It wasn’t until the age of 14 that he realized just how musically inclined he was, through his ability to write lyrics.

Teez has since released several mixtapes on SoundCloud. In 2016, he revealed the first installment of the KILLSHIT mixtape series, hosted by the highly respected DJ Carisma.

 

My Thoughts on the project:

Now that the P.R. fluff is over let’s get right into the project and what I think.

Mona Lessuh– This song goes hard and I can tell why it was chosen to start the project off.

Mood– I definitely like this song. It’s a song you can bob your head to and sing along with.

Lit Bae– This song is about a girl obviously. A rap love song so to speak. He talks about how lit his bae is.

Hustle Up– As the title suggests this song is all about Teez’s hustle and struggle. It’s his story on how he made it thus far in the game.

Drop– The beat on this track is a bit funky and challenges Teez’s ability to properly spit. I think he does it well and gets his point across.

Dog Filter– I got a kick out of the song title. The song describes how fake social media can be and how people portray themselves. Teez just doesn’t want anything to do with the bullshit and I agree with him. Everyone has a fake ass persona and you never know what’s real or fake nowadays.

Not Over– This is a heartbreaking song. It’s all about a break-up and we all know those sucks. He has a feature on this track. It doesn’t sound like either of them wants this to be over. They want to get back to where they were but is that even possible?

Buggy– The delivery on this track is different than the previous tracks and it definitely works. Teez is showing us all his skills throughout this project.

Murda– This is an upbeat track even with the underlying murda topic. I love the contradiction so much. I also caught the island vibes in the background. Just like he says in the song, everything he does he murdas. I legit can’t get over this track, it’s so fun.

Outro– Waves crash and we know we’ve reached the end of our trip with Teez. It’s a peaceful send off that slowly brings you back to this world after visiting R.E.N.O.

The project drops today so follow him and stayed tuned for more music. As always if you want to be featured on the top 100 hip hop blogs send a submission to mellystarzsubmissions@gmail.com or visit the contact form. Stay tuned for new music reviews every Friday.

{New Music} I’m a Star by Shaheed

This fast paced melody reminds me of playing Rainbow Road on Mario Kart. I can’t help but bob my head. In this song Shaheed takes me back to those cold winter days in Chicago when I would sit in the game room and play video games and watch old school Cartoons with my cuzzos.

Now don’t get it twisted this song is not all about the good old days but that is where it takes me back to and for that I thank him.

Shaheed has this gift, which shows in this song, to take the unexpected and relate it current day to day life occurrences.

My absolute favorite line from the song is “treat the people like friends of mine”.

I can’t help but chuckle throughout this song. This song seems to be Shaheed’s declaration that he is indeed a STAR[Z].

Don’t believe me take a listen for yourself and let me know what you think.

Also stay tuned for the music video which I believe I might make a cameo in. [crossing my fingers]

Stay tuned.

{New Music} Mixtape Review: Sex Music & Demons by Untamed


No Comments

Untamed is from Miami, born and raised, he originally started in a group but life had other plans for him. Untamed now has a full team and fan base behind him. He also has a live band. Untamed has a few upcoming projects in the near future but what we will be focusing on is his promotional tape titled Sex Music & Demons.

 

This mixtape is like nothing I have ever heard before. It has a mix of Dubstep, Hip Hop and even Rock. It blends original beats and remixes. There are a few songs that focus on sex; one of these is “Feeling Sexual.” The track titled “The Evils Around Me” is very powerful. It talks about the evil and struggles that different people face and how it is in every city whether or not you wish to see it.

One of my favorite songs off the mixtape is “Over the Edge.” It sounds a little dark but I was definitely very into it. Another song I really enjoyed was “Ecstasy.” I felt like I was on a roller coaster ride. This song was executed amazingly. Immediately after a trip through “Ecstasy” we go  “Youth.” This is another one of my favorite songs off the tape. It may be a long song but I love the words to it. To end the mixtape we get to hear a “Dubstep Cypher.“ Which is just that, several artists having a cypher.

This tape is definitely something to listen to but I must warn you it is a little long with 25 songs. I would recommend anyone looking for new music and a mixture of genres to check it out and of course to continue to follow Untamed.
