Powderr AJ1


No Comments

Coming straight from Sudbury, Ontario, Canada we have Powderr with his track AJ1. Powderr has been in the game for some time now, starting his rap career at the age of 16. He cites $uicideBoy$, Pouya, Bones, TAZ, Mac Miller, Denzel Curry, XXXtentacion, Eminem, and Logic as his musical influences.

Our Thoughts on the track

Let’s start with the title track, I’ve been out of the show game for awhile so I had to look this one up and then I smiled because it’s a classic. It’s a short two minute song but short doesn’t mean bad. It’s an eerie beat and vibe. He has some dope lines especially the “it’s so cold up in the north, feel it in your spinal cord.” He gives a sneak peak into his life through his music. The song gives us a taste of what Powderr can bring to the table and serves as a teaser for his music.

Want More?

This isn’t the only track that Powderr has out right now and if you want to hear more follow these links. Looking forward to his blooming rap career.

JuztKP – Bull City Maniac (Music Video) ft. Dynasty Official


No Comments

Where to begin with this video?? Well let me just say… what a breath of fresh air that was. The imagery is incredible!! I love all the shots and setting. The video was so clear and very well done. The change of focus in some shots and the angles spoke to me. This is just me being a video nerd but after going to school and studying video I think I’m allowed to nerd out once in awhile.

Now back to the video. The concept behind this video is like going back to 90s hip-hop with a modern twist. The same goes for the song. He takes it back to break dancers in the street and choreographed dances. After watching this video I am def a fan and I feel like I need to visit Bull City to hang out with KP and his crew. If you listen closely to the song you will catch some very slick and well-executed references to that 90s hip-hop I was talking about. Can you spot the references, if so what are they?

{New Music} Jep Roadie – Superheroes


No Comments

SuperHeroes

Bio (provided by artist)- “Speaking as the “lone wolf” that they always refer to, I can tell you what comes of seclusion. Plenty of self awareness and the yearning to save. Not in the way most “rappers” use the term nowadays. But in the traditional sense. Actually saving someone’s life. Of course, it is just an extension of our overall humanity and willingness to put others before ourselves. Nonetheless, I did not choose to save. I do not like to save. I simply need to save. It cannot be controlled. By day, I can’t really stand most human interaction. I find most to be self absorbed and simply lost. Most are lost because of the devices used to distract the world. But by night, I am the one howling at the moon in hopes it will reply. I don’t do this for recognition. I do not do this for monetary gain. It would be much easier to rob a bank than to become a superstar. I pretty much do this for a family member, I am yet to meet. I do it so that a lost soul may be revived by one of these recordings. The lone wolf always seems to be lonely. But maybe inside his heart, lives the voices of all. This is no sermon. I am not preaching. This is no attempt at being something I am not. I am writing this in hopes that someone will relate. That someone will understand what I am saying or how I feel. Until then, I will continue to write these songs. Everyone is a Super Hero in someone’s eyes. Ideas like that make life worth living. I love you. Sincerely, A 90’s baby, who was given PTSD.”

What a beautiful introduction to a new artist visiting Mellsville. Let me start off the review by saying I got goose bumps at the beginning of the song because of the soulful voice I heard. The way the beat began I thought I was in about to listen to some ignorant rap but I was pleasantly surprised. Now at the end of the first verse when he goes back to singing I find it to be a little rough but then it gets better. There are definitely some lines where he tries sending a message. He also puts in a lot of personal issues into this song. Looking forward to hearing more and watching Jep Roadie grow as an artist.

Song Review:

On a sample from an old Usher song JustKP brings us an ode to his girl (or more so a girl). I am personally not a fan of samples but I will still give my unbiased opinion on the song. I love the words to this song. He tells this girl how he feels about her in a unique hip hop way. He also tells her what he needs in a girl and how much he appreciates the way she treats him. With Valentine’s Day coming up this might be the song you need to dedicate to your girl and put a cherry on top of the night. I would have to say that the line I can’t get out of my head is “every step we take together is a milestone.”

 

This is a new artist in Mellsville and I hope to continue to be able to feature his music.
