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.

Brizz Rawsteen – RAWTHENTIC x Album Review

C9oGD35XYAAscpFWhen you think of hip hop in North Carolina; a couple names come to mind. 9th Wonder, J. cole, Rapsody, Petey Pablo. Now there’s one more name you can add to the list of the Tar Heel state’s hip hop heavyhitters. Wilmington, Delaware born – Raleigh, North Carolina raised, Brizz Rawsteen, is known for his lyrical ability, unorthodox and aggressive style, and wordplay in battle rap. Brizz is back letting the world know he’s not just nice on stages slaying emcees, but also on tracks too. If you aren’t familiar with his previous project, RAWTAPE, then I assure RAWTHENTIC is a perfect piece of work that can get you familiar and make you join the infamous DARKSIDE.

Black Commission has a mafioso/old school vibe with a lot street knowledge. The song starts off as if he’s having a conversation with a DARKSIDE Soldier or henchmen, not at all. After several listens I realize Brizz in Capo mode talking to you, discussing operations and how business and street etiquette should be conducted. Pretty dope song overall.

Brizz chose to slow things down on For Dat Paper and give you an interesting perspective on how people change when money is involved. Jealousy breeds envy and greed in the hearts of corrupted people. It’s just a sad fact that everyone around you isn’t going to be happy with your success. This track is so vivid with details on actual emotions that it makes it hard to describe. Rawsteen captures those salty emotions of haters so well on this melodic track making it easy to listen and vibe to.

God Status is my favorite song on this whole project. Brizz lost it on this song. Concept. Bars. Metaphors. Perspective. All these factors made this song easy to gravitate to. Frizz proves his pen is just different and mentally can turn something abstract into an audio Picasso. The way Rawsteen incorporates biblical references to his subject matter is glorious. It may take several listens to catch everything. Very unique and interesting song  that I recommend to someone who enjoys bars.

Brizz reaches out to fellow North Carolina emcee, Rain 910, for Godflows. The two lyricist  do a great job going bar for bar on this song. If these two collaborate again, I’d be happy to see it. The rock ‘n’ roll beat is something emcees should lightly tread on nowadays, but this song is good. Shorter than what I expected, I was just getting into the joint.

For this to be a freshmen, independent venture for Brizz Rawsteen; I’m quite impressed. The rise and fall of the whole album kept me engaged and actively listening. The lead single, Better That Way, concludes the album and it’s easy to see the force is strong in the DARKSIDE head honcho. The bars on this song will easily command your attention as Brizz gives rides the beat like 10-speed Schwinn.

Go get that RAWTHENTIC by BRIZZ RAWSTEEN off iTunes, Google, Amazon, and Spotify. Make sure you check his classic battles on Youtube, just search the name and click one. The man won’t let you down, Shoutout to DARKSIDE, Cave Gang, Dot Mobb. Brizz Rawsteen got next, mark my word. And make sure you stay in tune with FTCHIPHOPNEWS, we trying to reach God Status.

Q-flo x Poetre’ – Erase Me EP

screen-shot-2017-01-08-at-10-59-31-pm


Today is a day I will forever remember due to spiritually being hurt to the utmost degree. Honestly, I’ve always found refuge through music. The power of rhythm and poetry (RAP) is truly a powerful force when the two combine. Now imagine that power when its fused with the strength of the Lord. In the darkest hour of my day, I was sent an EP from a quite talented artist. A gospel artist, at that.

Philadelphia natives, Q-flo and Poetre’, exalts their Lord and savior Jesus Christ in a manner that anyone from the congregation to the street corner would have to notice and listen to. As an artist, Q-flo, gives you the bars of a battle rapper, but the same message you would get from a minister on his best Sunday. You can definitely tell Q-flo is from Philly; you can hear in the melodic flow, it also has hints of Cassidy and Reed Dollaz. Poetre’ does a great job riding the beat sometimes giving you the feel of Bone Thugs ‘N’ Harmony. At least they do to me. From Track 1 to Track 7, Erase Me is filled with jewels, knowledge, and authentic stories of how people who lived on a windy path found the road of the strait and narrow. It’s amazing how much I enjoyed this tape. Erase Me definitely has replay value and is so refreshing when we are in an era where all artist follow trends and do anything to go viral.

Songs like “Erase Me“, “Got It“, and “Renegade” will definitely grab a hiphop head’s attention, whether backpacker or goon. “You Know” and “2nd Chances” will definitely give you the same feeling you get in church. I wouldn’t be surprised if you did a holy ghost dance while listening to this project by Q-flo and Poetre’. They need a name if they plan on becoming a duo; which I’m highly in favor of. This definitely sparked my interest in Gospel Rap, and I have to ask the man where I can find “The Heart Pt. 1“. Go check out Q-flo and Poetre’ – Erase me EP and let me know what you think.
