Detroit artist Chavis Chandler starts the year off strong with his latest release titled BRIDGECARDRAPS. This 12 track album is filled soulful samples and powerful lyrics detailing the struggles, life, and overall upbringing of a young man trying to make his way in Detroit. Chavis starts off the album with the track titled “yesterday”, featuring his camp mates from the Verbal Vomit crew where they attack the lack of realism & Lyrics in today’s Hip Hop and call a challenge to any whack MC intentionally spitting whack lyrics and constructing whack music. Chavis also skillfully details stories of his life growing up in the streets of East 7 Mile Detroit & how his struggles molded his ambition & drive and help shape him into who he is today with tracks like “Chavis” & “Stay True.” Chavis also hits home for all Detroit natives with one of his signature tracks “Lou’s coney Island” where he describes his love for the simple pleasure shared by all Detroiters that is, THE CONEY ISLAND!!! Overall this is a very well put together project and one of my top underground picks of the year so far.

“The Album with No Name EP” is the latest release from Detroit artist 313Phresh and this is definitely one of his best and most complete releases to date. This EP show’s 313 Phresh’s evolution as an artist and producer with heavy and hard hitting lyrics and song topics, along with melodious samples and 808 bass heavy lyrics. The album is riddled with songs that display the essence of pure Barz and any true hip hop or music fan can catch the rhythmic vibes and appreciate the clever wordplay. The album features a variety of songs that will appeal to any listener and is sure to catch the ear please the senses. With this album Phresh wanted his growth as an artist to be displayed so there are not to many features on this Album outside of two collaborative efforts “Black America” and “The Hit” featuring yours truly(TrueSpeech). “Black America” is a song where Phresh and I give real and in depth look at how it truly is growing up as young black men in America and the struggles of trying to find a better life and progress.”The hit” is a melodic and bass heavy anthem where Phresh and I trade vicious BARZ and make a call out to MC’s to step their verbal game up. Overall “The Album with No Name EP” is a must have for all music lovers and Hip Hop fans and it one album that no one can do without.

Below is a link to the new Lupe Fiasco Music Video for his controversial new single “Bitch Bad” the video and the song are truly a deep intellectual look at the way society and the music industry has chosen to glamorize.
This is a new controversial song form one of my favorite artist of all time…Lupe Fiasco. This song to me it’s an master piece with the message and overall theme of the track which really hits hard on a sensitive and often laughable idea that is pushed through entertainment today. Lupe has gotten a lot of heat for this song but to me he is simply y telling the #TrueSpecch and saying the same thing I have been saying for years. I for one stand behind Lupe 10,000,000% and once applaud his courage and honesty. Also FOOD AND LIQUOR 2 drops September 25th and I for one cannot wait.
