Bishop Brigante x Legacy Album Review

Screen Shot 2017-04-29 at 12.52.41 PM

Back at you with with another review. This time we’re going international and vibing out to Canada’s own, Bishop Brigante. For those who don’t know, Brigante has been in movies, TV series, and is very known on Canada’s hip hop scene. A lot of you may just know him as the face next to Organik on King of The Dot’s battle rap league, but I assure you he’s much more than that. So grab your poutine and enjoy this summary of Bishop Brigante’s Legacy.

Bishop Brigante kicks of the Legacy album with his single, “That’s the Way.” This song has a 90’s basement party type vibe. In these days where trap beats and mumble rap reign; its refreshing to hear someone stick to their roots and take it back to a good time in rap. This song is definitely for the underground clubs; hip hop heads will definitely rock to this. Next, the Section 6 family does a great job on “About to Change”. This melodic, uplifting song is definitely a song the crowd will sing along to and needs a video. Big Zeeks, Mikey G, and Bishop made an incredible track. I’m surprised this isn’t the last song on the album. 6 Up definitely solidifies my opinion that I’m not getting a radio friendly album. I feel like I’m back in the grimy 90’s era where street anthems were preferred over top 40 hits. Bishop definitely is doing his thing so far and presents solid material. It’s easy to see that his style is very New York influenced but Scarborough helped developed his style and story. Moving along; we get into “Hard Times”. This soulful biography paints a vivd picture of life in poverty and stereotypes. Bishop can paint images with lyric very well. Hard Times definitely needs a visual as well. I was incredibly shocked when I saw the features on “That’s the way” remix. This song features the legendary MC Lyte and Onyx’s own Sticky Fingaz. This remix just exudes energy and excitement with these two on it. I have no idea how Bishop got this collaboration to happen, but I love it. Brigitte turns up on his verse immensely compared to the original. JD Era and Drake lend their talents to Shorty Grindin’ and I must say its very dope. Bishop definitely has a couple club bangers on here that went unnoticed by the world and I can’t see why, or how? If it was up to me I’d make “It’s fo Twenty” the lead single. Nate Dogg on the hook makes this track absolutely special; the beat is definitely a club banger. This song definitely has hit potential and deserves to be a club banger. Finally we have “My Style” Bishop gets on this street anthem and is reminiscent of The Game and 50 Cent with his flow. I love this song its got a very gritty vibe that you can groove to. I’m disappointed the album is ending here because I’m really vibing out.

Overall, Bishop Brigante puts out a solid project and good music. The songs have substance and lyrics are on point. I love the fact I didn’t get an album oversaturated with features because I came for a Bishop Brigante album, and thats what I got. I really expected more than eight songs on this album, but I can’t complain because I enjoyed them all. Just wish this project was a little longer. I dig the music and can’t wait to hear more from the King Of The Dot co-host. You should have seen my face after finding out how old these songs are; a lot of artists now can’t make music that ages this well.After hearing this I definitely need to keep my ear to Canada’s hiphop scene a lot more.

Ms. Hustle “Can’t Knock The Hustle” Album Review

00 - Ms_Hustle_Cant_Knock_The_Hustle-front-large


Can’t Knock The Hustle. Immediately, your thought was the classic Jay-z and Mary J. Blige joint. Well, not in this case. Ms. Hustle showcases her talents on the microphone and showing you the bars aren’t only nice on URL (Ultimate Rap League) and QOTR (Queen of  the Ring) main stages. The Harlem lyricist made it her personal mission to see she gets the respect she deserves with this tape.

DJ Kay slay’s new artist drops her debut mixtape, Can’t Knock The Hustle, with StreetSweepers Ent. The 10-track project has that New York sound that the world lusts for but said was lost and gone forever. Everything from DJ Kay Slay hosting to the features from hip hop elites like Vado, Sheek Louch, Jadakiss, Ransom, Uncle Murda, and more. Hustle completely lost her mind on Warning and Hip Hop Republican freestyles. The bars are completely on point and show the difference a rapper that is a lyricist and a rapper that is an entertainer. Ms. Hustle proves she can go bar for bar with hip hop’s most notable names on this body of work. You’ll see why when you hear songs like, I Wonder Why and Gangsta Muzik.

Ms. Hustle and DJ Kay Slay couldn’t have put together a better mixtape with summer around the corner. Up in Harlem featuring Neef Bucks and Vado is already a certified hit in the streets and gaining massive notoriety by the day. Funk master Flex had it on his playlist starting out as #11 and in one week jumped to #4. Keep in mind Mz. Hustle doesn’t have a big industry label out there paying for airplay. All this is solely off the strength of her project alone. I strongly recommend you go get this tape, NOW! It’s free. Know what, I’ll do you a favor. All you have to do is click here.
