Golden - Champagne Wishes and Caviar Dreams (Album)

Golden - Champagne Wishes and Caviar Dreams (Album)

Female mc's get a ( pun intended ) bad rap these days... Thanks to the lack of females that actually get national shine and are hyper sexualized or adopt pop sensibilities. Most independent females mc's are overlooked by the general public. Most have to work twice as hard to get noticed and have even tighter lyrics. .. thankfully that isn't the case with Rochester's Golden.

A steady stream of releases ( last year's project with Kidd Called Quest "P.M.S.") features & mixtapes along with performances in the 585 area (& beyond) has kept Golden in the spotlight. And she unleashes a project that's been the making for over a year, which is well worth the wait.. Golden proves that her rhyme style isn't just one sided as she flexes over a variety of beats provided by a wave of up & coming 585 producers. This variety keeps the album fresh as well as having some fellow 585 features .. but make no mistake Golden is the star of this album as she flows over the beats & switches subjects.

Champagne Wishes and Caviar Dreams may take you by surprise, showcasing trunk rattling beats, catchy hooks, and dynamic lyrical content. NY native and MC Golden did her thang on this joint, check it!

Synik and Rod McCoy - SELAH (Album)

Mississippi native Synik & Alabama native Rod McCoy are collaborating on their new project "Selah" which is defined as a combination between two verses. It only seems fitting that the two, who share a brotherly bond after serving together in the military, spent 33 months putting together what can only be described as a cool, calm and player-like soundtrack.

The project has already delivered 4 promising singles in "Parking Lot Pimpin'","AHE", "Price Of Success" and "Rolling Stoned", with eleven more tracked added into the mix. Features are light, with label mates E-Jay and Blunder rounding out the appearances. Production comes from Skully Cruz, King Haze, The Audible Doctor, Jay B, VenoTheBuilder, fellow military veteran Manhe and more, all adding their sound to"Selah". Setting themselves apart from the typical "turn up" sound, Synik & Rod are here to prove they are more than just another rap act coming out of the South.

EP, delves into my mind as I struggle to find my way through a lost world. - The I.S.A.

Yves x OG Ron C - Purply, Yves (EP)

Yves x OG Ron C - Purply, Yves (EP)

The story around Yves of The Niceguys' Sincerely, Yves EP broke down into two simple narratives. The first being a man with plenty on his mind who felt the need to express that through different sections of production that felt like grimy NYC and dashes of a bleak future. The second being someone who's dealt with death of close friends, his own hazy nights and tried to keep track of it all.

The six track EP now has another dimension to it. With the added help of OG Ron C & DJ Candlestick, Yves' Sincerely, Yves EP now gets bathed in a purple cauldron where thoughts get extrapolated to select chops and timing. "Juice" loves distortion, "Ultraviolence" waxes and wanes on carrying more than one meaning. Hell these are all moments to remind people why it was the best EP at the halfway mark of the year locally.
