MYCHL – Color Me Bad [Video]

This thought provoking video is linked to the Black Lives Matter movement. The senseless murders of unarmed black people is met with MYCHL‘s musical outcry to pay to attention. The Chicago emcee can be seen walking down his block wearing a hoodie that seems symbolic to Trayvon Martin. He’s also being harassed by an officer while holding cigarettes like Eric Gardner and is killed at the end of the video reaching for his ID like Philando Castile.

About MYCHL: MYCHL originally gained attention in 2011 for his work as one half of The 2 of Diamonds hip-hop duo. Their first mixtape, Jackin For Fans(2011) was followed up by the release of 30 for 30(2011) which was a compilation made up of 30 songs that were released in 30 days. The duo became a bit quiet after a few sporadic releases in both 2012 and 2013. A leaked song, Make A Hit which features Chance The Rapper had listeners ready to hear more from the duo but the two had other plans. It was later in 2013 when MYCHL began writing more music as an individual artist, while trying to develop his own sound. After spending time crafting his sound, MYCHL is now prepared to show the world exactly what he is capable of. Color Me Bad serves as the first introduction to MYCHL. The song focuses on the delicate subjects of police shootings and local gun violence. It also sets the tone for his debut album, also entitled Color Me Bad, due for release in late 2018.

West Coast Rapper/Singer/Songwriter Lana Shea First Solo Album “Duality”

“Duality” is the first solo album from West Coast rapper/singer/songwriter Lana Shea.  The album features production from Amp Live and Eligh, and a feature from UK rapper Lady Sanity.  The project was mastered by Daddy Kev at Alpha Pup Records.

“This is my first solo album.  I released two albums with my former group Luck & Lana Kill The Computer, a collaboration with Living Legends MC Luckyiam.  I’ve toured and worked in the underground hiphop scene for years including writing and singing a hook on the Del & Amp Live album that recently came out.  I’m ecstatic to finally be doing this solo work.  I’ve spent the last year hiding in my dad’s basement in Oregon making this album.  The only feature is UK rapper Lady Sanity on a feminist banger caller “Pretty Girls Like”.  Amp Live produced “Us Too” which, in a few words, is a song about the “Me Too” movement.  I’ve never tried to make feminist hiphop music, it’s just what comes out.  But the Duality in this project is the conscious alongside the care-free.  The singing and the rapping, the worry and the exaltation that is in me at all times.” – Lana Shea

DBM’s New Music Video For Single, “Slow Money”

If you are unfamiliar with DBM, then you probably are not from New Jersey. The wickedly knowledgeable lyricist emerged early in 2018 with the blue collar hip-hop anthem, “Slow Money”. The Youseesounds produced single highlights DBM’s commitment to achieving his goals of becoming a successful entrepreneur and respected rapper within the rap game. When asked about the song DBM said, “If there were a cult for entrepreneurs that were focused solely on their dreams coming true, this would be the song they chant before drinking Crow’s blood. [It is a] melodic look into the suffering of a man that refuses to let his dreams go.”

In the music video, DBM offers a visual interpretation of his obsession with expanding his estate, while pointing out that no one is immune to the pursuit of power, not even leaders of the church. DBM encourages viewers to keep an open mind. He says, “there’s never been a weirdo more charming.”

With a rabid “anti-mumble rap” fanbase, DBM is poised to expand his growing fanbase with thoughtful, honest lyricism.“Homie I done gave my life to this/ Pin me up on a cross like Christ for this/ I got the rent money in the alleyway rolling dice for this/ Never been afraid to get trife for this, damn near lost my wife for this/ Saw the receipts for my promo and got awfully pissed.” DBM pulls no punches with “Slow Money.” The single is candid and details the constant
sacrifices he’s made in pursuit of his goals.

He raps, “People signed up for my team and went missing/ Cuz the work I do to be king it don’t glisten.”
