Ezko - "Rampage" - {Official Video}

 Ezko is a powerful lyricist who intricately laces very philosophical messages in his music while still retaining a level of social appeal. The video for "Rampage" artistically depicts the battle many youth face when being bombarded by pressure from their peers along with the media to succumb to an idolized lifestyle. 

It also metaphorically presents this battle as a spiritual one resembling that of a demonic possession that forces it’s host to behave in accordance to the stereotypical rappers mentality. Checkout the video below, now this is what great HipHop is all about.

Sean Price - "Definition Of God" - {Audio}

One of HipHop's greatest lyricist and Master of Ceremonies Sean Price will always be missed by his core fans, myself included.  His career had it's ups and downs but just when it was rising again, like Michael Jackson & Prince he was gone.  Despite his huge persona Sean lived a private life, most of it was a mystery.  If you asked him he would say, " I love the Rap but I hate the Game...". 

Sean only did a handful of interviews or appearances.  After going back and fourth with Duck Down Records he became the CEO, which was a huge win for a brotha from Brownsville, NY.  Checkout the latest release from the Sean Price archives.

Skip Marley - "Lions" - {Official Video}

For most of your guys you probably are saying "Who the F#@! is Skip Marley?", well he's the grandson of Bob Marley from his daughter Cedella Marley.  I was a little skeptical at first but the young lion has talent and brings a different twist to the Reggae genre.

Shawn Micskills - "The New America" (Remix) - {Audio}

This is political HipHop track has a classic East Coast/NYC sound that addresses Donald Trump's presidency and the cultural divide in America. The record has been picking up a lot of steam since it dropped in January. 

Some peeps has been compared Shawn Micskills to the likes of Brother Ali, Immortal Technique, Kendrick Lamar, Sean Price (RIP), and Vinnie Paz of Jedi Mind Tricks. Hmm...I would be afraid to be compared to those Lyrical Beast, but I will let you guys be the judge of that.

Issa Rae's Creator of "Awkward Black Girl" & "Insecure" Hilarious Speech At ESSENCE - {Video}

Issa Rae is one of my favorite "Rags to Riches" stories to tell since I've personally watched her go from her mega YouTube hit with "The Misadventures Of Awkward Black Girl" to HBO executive producer and star of her own show "Insecure".  If you don't know her story "Google it", it's fascinating.  But today I just wanted to shine the light on a talented sista who deserved the spotlight and credit for her work, you are appreciated.
