For Namesake is the latest project released from acclaimed Detroit artist NameTag & his producer Nameless. This release form he Motor City duo is nothing short of Extraordinary and refreshing, breathing new life back into the rap game while paying homage to the groundwork that many legends in the game laid. The combination of cleaver wordplay & heavy punchline fueled rhymes from NameTag, and eclectic hard hitting beats from producer Nameless, this entire project elevates itself from rap album to an addictive head nodding and true to form Hip Hop  experience.

In the area of features NameTag was not shy about calling in some true next level talent with appearances from a couple Detroit legends, Miz Korona who is feature on ” Reaction”, Guilty Simpson on “Raw, Dirty, Filth”. and his blood cousin Black Milk on “OxyMoron.” With serious features such as this Nametag does more than hold his own he skillfully matches bar for bar & makes his presence felt. He also enlisted the lyrical prowess of his younger cousin and fellow up and coming Detroit artist M.A.H.D on the songs “Notchos” & one of the first singles from the album titled “HookLess”, where these two effortless assault the beat with viscous lyrical punches essentially letting other artist in the game know that they are hear to make a statement. He lastly called on young Detroit Vocalist Chell to help lay the smooth melodies over the “Teacher”  where Nametag gives a deep introspective tale of loosing his mother to breast cancer and his trained relationship with his father who battles drug addiction, ultimately resulting in a deep heartfelt song that is sure to touch the souls of those who listen.

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!!!
