Apollo Suns – MCC EP


Oren Major – Ghetto Hymns (prod. by Squae Wicked)

Atlanta, GA recording artist Oren Major drops off “Ghetto Hymns” the second single from his upcoming project, “Black Privilege” (Release Date TBA). The piece showcases Oren’s penetrating lyrical composition and ability to offer a refreshing mix of honesty and melody over a soulful 808 infused choir backdrop produced by Squae Wicked. This track follows his previous single “Holy Water” which has already received over 50k streams since its August release and landed at the #3 spot in the “Now Trending” section for Hip Hop on AudioMack.

Oren Major, originally from St Louis, MO but currently residing in Atlanta, GA, is a self-described “aggressively conscious lyricist with a unique, raw style.” The content in his music connects with listeners on a deep-rooted level like that of a young Kanye West. His influences of J. Cole and Lauryn Hill also add to his sound with a refreshing amount of honesty, emotion, and vulnerability. He has been well received since the release of his debut album “Blinded by Ambition” in January of this year, skyrocketing to over 50k monthly listeners on Spotify. And although he is only recently beginning to earn recognition, he has been writing music for the past decade and is definitely here to stay.

M-Dot x Buckwild – Chrissy (Music Video)

Every so often an artist creates something positive from a deeply negative situation and it turns out to be their seminal work, like Eminem’s “Stan” or Aesop Rock’s “No Regrets.” Boston lyricist, M-Dot is no exception as he puts his creativity into overdrive with his latest visual “Chrissy” taken from his studio debut “Ego & The The Enemy” [Out Now]. M-Dot narrates a comprehensive memoir about a troubled young girl named ‘Chrissy’ who’s life falls into endless turmoil after her failed attempts at fame and fortune. The song highlights the girl going from being loved ubiquitously, to being completely overwhelmed by her own personal demons unable to cope with everyday reality, spiraling into a world of prostitution and drug/alcohol addiction. Sparing the audience of typical ‘Hollywood Endings’ the story ends with a dark, hair-raising dose of realism… Produced by the legend,Buckwild [Biggie, Big L, Jay-Z, Nas] who crafted a nebulous sound that compliments this narrative with impeccable precision.

FreshfromDE – Aston Martin

With last weeks media announcement of Daniel Craig deciding to reprise his role as Ian Fleming’s fictional marauder 007 [James Bond] one last time, it seemed like an opportune time for Delaware / Boston artist FreshfromDE to finally unveil the visuals for his most successful single to date “Aston Martin” from the recently released collaboration EP “The Ritual” with Dutch producer Roca Beats. For this concept there’s zero discretion as FreshfromDE meta-morphs himself into the incarnation ’00Fresh’ a creative process historically not unfamiliar to him. [See: Fresh Gordon]
“Aston Martin” was directed and edited by Zak Morris, they both shot this video in and around the Miami area allowing them to capture some refined, polished imagery, highly appropriate given the theme of this particular cut as the Delaware emcee embodies ‘Black Bond’ in a setting that wouldn’t be out of place in one of the original movies, expect …high rise buildings, fitted suits, palm trees, and a brand new 17′ Aston, only thing missing is Pussy Galore? After watching this, give “The Ritual” EP a listen, available now oniTunes and Spotify#freshfromde #astonmartin #theritual
