Red Pill - Look What This World Did To Us (Album)

Red Pill - Look What This World Did To Us (Album)

The newest signee from Mello Music Group, Red Pill's debut full length album is finally here. The Detroit native has been described as "unflinchingly grim" and "hilariously self-deprecating." The new album, Look What This World Did To Us, is an introspective journey, revealing intimate details through unabashed honesty and satirical absurdity. Self-analysis and loathing may come through initially, but what truly impresses about Red Pill is the talent and control of a veteran rhymer.

Having found success in his group Ugly Heroes with Apollo Brown and Verbal Kent, Red Pill's new album is a project that strives to establish his individuality as an artist. Red Pill's style garners comparisons that run the gamut in both style and medium, from Atmosphere to Charles Bukowski.

L'Orange & Jeremiah Jae - The Night Took Us In Like Family

L'Orange & Jeremiah Jae - The Night Took Us In Like Family
Deep kick drums, ticking hi-hats, irregular rhythms, a spatial Moog filter, and Victrola static all over golden age vocalizations combine to provide the black & white soundscape over which Chicago emcee Jeremiah Jae delivers deadpan lyrics. Stones Throw spitter Homeboy Sandman ties his verbals to the track on the second verse to complete the unsettling song.  
 
Taken by itself L'Orange & Jeremiah Jae's singles leave listeners adrift in an undefined world of prohibition rap - an artistic Hiphop version of 1930s gangster films.  But as fans of L'Orange already know, making sense of the story as each piece of the puzzle unfolds is part of the experience.

Oddisee - The Good Fight

Oddisee - The Good Fight
In a landscape overrun with abstract indulgence and shallow trend-chasers, the Prince George’s County, Maryland artist Oddisee has created a record that reminds you that it’s music before it’s hip-hop. 

For Oddisee, “The Good Fight” is about living fully as a musician without succumbing to the traps of hedonism, avarice, and materialism. It’s music that yields an intangible feeling: the sacral sound of an organ whine, brass horns, or a cymbal crash. It’s a meditation on our capacity to love and the bonds binding us together. It’s our ambition and greed warring with our sense of propriety - a list of paradoxes we all face when living and striving.
