Young Grim

Searching new music, I came across Young Grim from Brooklyn, NY.  Rap style is new school, but doesn’t rap like most of the young dudes these days.   He says that, his songs are his life story, I listen to them, majority of them are poppin lyrically.  Without further ado, I’d like to introduce to you Young Grim.

Aminé

With Hip Hop being in the sad state it’s in, the new school rappers are all trash and barely audible when they rap, plus they all sound the same.  Here is  Aminé with his eclectic style, very creative and you can actually understand what he says.  Check the video of him performing on the Seth Myers show.  Great example of trash rappers when Migos comes to spit bars while Aminé is rapping.

 

Common Performs In NYC @ Brookfield Plaza

HipHope.com has been off for a while, but coming back, the first thing we do is get to go see Common perform a free concert here in NYC, Brookfield Plaza.  Manhattan’s downtown, World Trade Center area.  Common performed great all night and had the crowd rocking.   He brought a woman to the stage and acted like it was a date, got to know her on stage for a few minutes while the band played.  He came back and spit several freestyles about her that were mind blowing.  Opening for him was Lion Babe, a dope singer with a great voice, an awesome producer and a lot of energy.  She was good, but went too long because we were all standing in the heat waiting for Common to come on.  But she was nice though.

The first minute and a half of the show….

From Brooklyn To Brazil – Brookzill

Hip Hop has always has always been inspired by Afro-Brazilian’s instruments and dance.  Brazil’s Hip Hop scene is deep and cultured.  The group Brookzill, put together by Prince Paul from De La Soul and Gravdiggaz with the vocalist from Digable Planets, Ladybug Mecca, Brazilian rapper Rodrigo Brandão and Don Newkirk as a producer.  The music that they make is very dope, an old school Hip Hop type of sound.  Very refreshing in the new age of mumble rappers that you hear on the radio.  They have recently performed in NYC so keep a look out for them on their website below as well as their song Saudade Songbook off of their 2016 album Throwback to the Future.  Very nice sound they have, they deserve a listen with their creativity.

Azealia Banks Finally Lost It For Real

I’ve always been fascinated with Azealia Banks, from her great looks, to different style of music, to Twitter battles with everyone from female rappers to Donald Trump, she has always come off as a little different for a lack of a better word.  In December of 2016, she tells the world that she’s been sacrificing chickens in closet for three years.  She has claimed to practice voodo and the black arts, but if you do that for real, you know you have to clean up the negative energies that come with it.  She hasn’t been cleaning it out and she decided to go on social media to show the world.  Well here’s the video of her cleaning out the closet of three years worth of chicken guts and feathers.

Fearless 4 – Problems of the World

Growing up in the Bronx in the 80’s, Hip Hop had a huge affect on my life and the way I look at the world as a youth.  The Fearless 4 and the Cold Crush Brothers were two of my favorite rap groups back then.  I know with the new digital age and the transformation of Hip Hop since then, this video may seem a little outdated.  But what the Fearless 4 is rapping about, is still relevant today.
