Veen puts his stamp on 2020 with the release of On Impact, his new EP

Published

on

Port-Harcourt based rapper, producer Veen comes through with a sonic expression of his emotions, experiences, and creativity across time on his latest EP On Impact. Listen HERE.

As an artist, producer, engineer, and even graphic designer, Veen represents a multi-hyphenate generation of creatives in Nigeria. The follow up to the collaborative EP ‘Star’ with his brotherKiienka is his latest project, On Impact. Born of his personal experiences and certain relationships, the EP is a personal yet triumphant outing from the fast-rising Nigerian star. His ability to fluidly bend genres creates a sonic experience merging trap, RnB, pop, and neo-soul.
From the defiant opener ‘Do It Again’, he makes it clear that this project is about overcoming, as he takes aim at his doubters and the obstacles he’s faced. His introspection remains a running theme on songs like ‘Crib’ as he soulfully details the issues in a relationship he’s trying to save. The rumbling track is a fusion of trap and RnB elements, an environment he finds extremely comfortable.
On a project so personal, it’s fitting that the only features are from Kiienka and fellow 44DB Collective member Tochi Bedford. Their collaboration on ‘In My Bag’ is a bouncy affair showcasing why these three are at the forefront of a new wave in Nigerian music. On Southern Steeze, homage is paid to Port Harcourt, with Veen’s raw energy acting as the perfect representation for the pride and energy of the south. Ultimately, the message of On Impact is one of hope as he wants his listeners to know that anything is possible regardless of the circumstances you might be facing.
In what has already been a busy year for this rising talent, this project shows that he has no intention of slowing down anytime soon. With endorsements from Ebro Darden in tow, and over 60 production credits in 4 years including Ice Prince and Skales, the multifaceted artist is poised to shine brighter than ever.
On Impact is available on all streaming platforms now!

Rasheed Chappell and XP The Marxman hit Nostalgic Cords on “Sinful Saints”

Published

on

Rasheed Chappell of the East and XP the Marxman join forces together to bring out a nostalgic, groovy track titled “Sinful Saints,” one of the lead singles of their upcoming collaboration L.P.’ RX.’

 

This union of East meets West is unlike any collaboration previously. Rasheed Chappell is known as a poet amongst his peers, and his visual conjuring lyrics are often compared to Illmatic era Nas. XP The Marxman is an L.A.-based Mexican rapper who paints vivid narratives of his barrio and the world as he sees it.

 

Chappell has recently dropped two stellar projects with 38 Spesh, one of the hottest rappers in the game, as well as a much sought-after producer. Rasheed has also received critical acclaim for his “Sinners & Saints” L.P. produced by the legendary Buckwild of D.I.T.C.

 

XP The Marxman has been making his name known, sparring alongside Termanology, U.F.O. Fev, and the often imitated Roc Marciano. XP hit the mark on his “Make The Devil Pray” L.P., which was held in many circles as an album of the year contender.

 

Two halves of the same coin, each MC brings their experience and perspective of Hip Hop to the table – Rasheed’s of the African-American experience in the northeast and XP’s of the Mexican experience in the city of L.A. Both MC’s paint vivid pictures of street culture with equally dangerous wordplay and nuance worthy of the buzz term “connoisseur rap.”

 

Combined, these two emcees elevate each other’s artistry to levels unmatched in today’s current climate of gun & coke rap. Artists at their core, R.X. is the musical representation of the men and what made them. With production from Roc Marciano, Buckwild, Ice Rocks, and many more, this is more than an album; it’s an opus.

 

For now, “Sinful Saints” is a good teaser for an entire body of work set to release on November 17th.

L.A.’s next great storyteller, Nana releases new track “GOTW”

Published

on

Crenshaw-bred rapper Nana has just shared his new single “GOTW”. The track is a blend of classic West Coast production and the cut-throat lyricism Nana consistently delivers. The song details the come-up from Nana, from his humble beginnings in Crenshaw and how that experience shaped him into the artist he is today. Lyrics like “Man I been broke my whole life, I’m breaking the curse” show the hustle that Nana had to exude to reach the level of success he’s attained. “GOTW” is a warning shot to all his detractors, either support his blossoming career or simply put, get out of the way.

Nana’s had an impressive 2020 with the release of his project Save Yourself. The album weaves vivid stories of survival and redemption during these unprecedented times with guest features by REASON and Blakk Soul. A preacher’s kid growing up in the Crenshaw District of LA, Nana is determined to empower himself and inspire others to grow beyond the circumstances and environment from which they come from via thought-provoking lyrics and visuals wrapped up in quick-flows and impressive wordplay. Nana went on in 2021 to release the Save Yourself Session, a series of full-band, live performance of select tracks from Save Yourself coupled with interviews between Nana and other creatives.

Larruso’s ‘’New Gen’’ EP arrives alongside all-new video for ‘Wolewa’ (Come Inside)’

Published

on

Afro-dancehall sensation, Larruso’s debut EP offers a feel-good experience that places him in the fore of Ghanaian dancehall music as he freewheels over a range of experimental melodies. Listen here: https://onerpm.lnk.to/NewGen-EP

 

Previewing with two singles prior to its official announcement ‘’New Gen’’ does not fall short of a smooth supply of tuneful beat selections and potential bangers. It is an aggregate of Larruso’s vision so far, meld together by familiar, yet refreshing concepts and a feature list accommodating of the young artist’s style.

 

 

The 8-track EP books features from the likes of the god MC, M.anifest, Suzzway, Nigeria’s very own, Bella Shmurda, Kelvyn Boy, Samini and J. Derobie, aside a compelling mix of producers which include The One, Beatz Dakay, Phantom, Jaemally, Gigz Beatz, Mix Master Garzy and Finchy.

 

For a project meant to inspire the prodigy’s avant-gardist role in his time, things are brought to a roaring start on the pre-released ‘New Gen’. Here, Larruso ushers in the age of this new generation he’s standing in for. ‘’We have a big dream and, how our family fit look past streets wey we dey pon?’’, he questions, backing up with chants and verses of empowerment. This invigorating theme persists into the EP’s first pre-released song ‘The Truth’ featuring the god MC, Manifest. On the soothing song, both artists free their energies into a pool of thoughts that are expressive of life in a country that grows increasingly hellish for the generation in question.

The tone of the EP hereafter shifts to a more ambient and easy-going sound ‘Body’ featuring Suzzway goes big on Larruso’s glossy vocals, while ‘Wolewa’ (Come Inside) featuring Nigeria’s very own, Bella Shmurda embraces a fun feel. The latter drops alongside a colorful video directed by Yaw Skyface and has lots of choreography to keep the song’s playfulness untouched. ‘Hit & Run’ isn’t far behind the explosive Afrobeat wave either, bearing the candid and fleeting emotions of the self-proclaimed nineties bad boy, before ushering in the project’s biggest in terms of collaborations ‘No Chance’.

Sweeping listeners back into his preferred domain ‘No Chance’ has Larruso tag Kelyvn Boy and Samini on the highly palatable Finchy production to make known their uncompromising nature to much finesse. ‘Addicted’ featuring J. Derobie slots in next to ferry listeners aboard the love express once more, yielding crooned verses of how special Larruso’s love interest is to him: ‘’Cause you know me and you have a different vibe/Make up your mind, come with me let’s ride’’. The finally EP comes to a soothing close thanks to Larruso’s resolute composure on solo effort ‘High Meditation’, in a bid to not to escape bad memories.

 

‘’New Gen’’ projects the Afro-dancehall star’s status as torchbearer in it’s entirety and is effortless in setting itself up as a benchmark for all dancehall EP’s to follow. Stream ‘’New Gen’’ by Larruso here:
