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.

Overall this project is highly refreshing, innovative, and is a much needed fresh change of pace to true fans of Great Hip Hop Music that is sure to easily  become and instant favorite with many listeners as it has to me.

A FEW THINGS FROM #TRUESPEECH

Hello Everyone,

PhotoGrid_1358885461483

I know for the past few weeks I have not been able to post any new blog or vlog material and for that I apologize. I have however been EXTREMELY busy writing and recording an all new Joint album  with my producer @313Phresh, who is also the man behind the visual imagery of the TrueSpeech VLOG series. Writing and recording an album is a very in depth process and it requires full attention to detail in order to create the best music possible which translates to quite a few long nights and 5am-6am studio sessions. However with this album I truly feel that this is some of the most creative, original, and hard hitting music to come out of Detroit in a very long. 313 Phresh and I have truly put a lot into this project & we are hopeful that it will be well received by all who are able to hear it. Very soon we will put the finishing touches on the music aspect of the album and we will in the near future begin promotions for the project.

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!!!

Chavis Chandler

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!!!!
