Detroit artist Pauly Bronson continues to hit the campaign trail with his upcoming release “Campaign Trail 2: The Primaries” set to drop January 15th, 2013. Campaign Trail 2 is a follow up to Pauly’s last EP “The Campaign Trail”, and after reaching out to Pauly & getting a preview of a few tracks I can say I was impressed and I feel that this is set to be some of his best work yet. With lead singles off the project “I’m on my way” & “Get Ya money up” Pauly seems to be ready to make a statement with this project and he is definitely campaigning for more than just a few Votes. I am definitely anxious to hear the rest of the album as soon it debuts on January 15th, and I will be one of the first to post the Link to his music page where you can download and help support underground talent. Below are the links to Pauly Bronson’s current music catalog where you can download all of his previous music FOR FREE!!!
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. Below is the link to Chavis Chandler’s band camp page where you can download the album…FOR FREE!!!! Help Support great Underground talent people and give it a listen.
Today marks the Birthday Of beloved Detroit Artist Darnel Lindsey, aka Blade Icewood. Blade Icewood was unfortunately gunned down in the City of Detroit far to soon, and at a point where his music career was about to take off and gain commercial success. The tragic part surrounding the death of this artist was that 2 years before his life was taken he was the victim of a home invasion where intruders shot him 7 times with an AK-47 assault rifle resulting in his paralysis from the waist down. Blade did not let that stop as he persevered and pushed forward his career up until his untimely death. Blade’s music will forever live on as a staple in Detroit music and he will be missed.
