Supakaine | We Gon Be Ok feat. Chuck Inglish w/Chase-N-Cashe

September 26, 2016 • By

Just like in any major city there’s a sense of chaos that surrounds it. We just happen to live in Detroit and bask in it often, involuntarily.  So to adapt a more positive midst and realize that you can’t stop living you’ll gradually see your surroundings change. It’s necessary. Know who to keep around and reassure to them (and yourself) that We Gon Be Ok. Keep that hope alive if you will.

Supakaine is pulling encouragement from his personal experiences for those who are listening/watching with help from Chuck Inglish and production from DaG. This is probably one of the hardest songs I’ve heard from Supakaine and JerryPHD was able to get the visual together efficiently! Yes! Look at my city!

New Music! Milfie | Behavior

September 22, 2016 • By

As the summer come to a close Milfie continues to keep her audience afloat with her new hit single Behavior. It has been little over 6 months since herself and producer StopBeingSober (who also produced Milfie’s RockNRye and Perfect) worked together. Listening to the difference in sound is quite fulfilling on top of the fact that I’m totally fucking with this track.

Check out Behavior and enjoy!

Nigga, I was sleep; Bass + Treble Weather Vol. 1

September 20, 2016 • By

When I tell you that I’ve been sleep, my guy. Man.

Bass + Treble Weather is an EP compiled of new tunes from Jaye Prime, Detroit Che, Eli Myles, and  ALI Keys. This super team joined together to put out an EP with a ‘different’ approach. Unlike anything I’ve heard coming out of the city. Once you hit play a wave of upbeat, almost celebratory, music begins to hit your bones. Something to get lost in and dance to. Like yo, I was sleep af. I didn’t know what to expect from this EP but I’m more than glad that I pressed play.

If you wanna hear some Bass + Treble Weather  for yourself don’t be hesitate to hit the link below and groove! And if you wanna dissect the artist individually explore their soundclouds for a bit!

1st Annual African World Film Festival

September 19, 2016 • By

For as long as I could remember the African World Festival, here in Detroit, has always been a staple in my childhood/adulthood. It’s nothing like seeing Black people celebrating our heritage and culture. From traditional garments to hearing djembes being played with pride while the young and old dance their hearts away. The vibrations alone is alluring and I’m more than proud of the progress throughout the years. The festival moved from Hart Plaza to The Charles Wright Museum on Warren in midtown Detroit. Which happens to be the nations largest African-American museum. So yeah, talk about legendary.

Speaking of growth, I was able to attend the first annual film festival. Yes. 16 filmmakers had the opportunity to showcase their masterpieces during the festival! The goal is to shine light on creatives who’s generating positive reactions with their work.

The minds behind bringing this idea into reality are from Eric Wells of Lightsup Entertainment and Letia Solomon of L. Solo Productions. The two was led by their love of directing, filming and acting. Why not? Who doesn’t like a good film, or two, or three, or ten? During this event I indulged in some great films. Some made me laugh, a few made me cry and/or gave me a new outlook on people and how they live their lives. The perspective from each director was insightful! Check out the films and their makers below!

Remembering An Icon: Teddy Pendergrass

September 12, 2016 • By

I am a sucker for soul. Especially such a deep and endearing voice like the one of Teddy Pendergrass. I’m sure a lot of people in this world were conceived to the sweet sounds of his voice and if you put his songs on today it will surely get a lot of people in the mood.

Teddy Pendergrass was born on March 26, 1950 in South Carolina to Jesse and Ida Geraldine Pendergrass. He loved singing and from an early age his family knew he would reach super stardom. The raspy baritone joined R&B group Harold Melvin and the Blue Notes in 1972 and lead their smash hit “I Miss You” showing the world what he was capable of as a vocalist. Pendergrass led most of the group’s hit songs like “When Somebody Loves You Back”, “Wake Up Everybody”, and “Bad Luck”.

New Banger: Kash Tha Kushman MATRAXSKINNY

September 6, 2016 • By

Bruiser Brigade’s young and grimy Kash Tha Kushman has blessed us with his new song “MATRAXSKINNY”. An obvious anthem to friendship asking us “did we stay down for our bros”, this song makes you question the loyalty of those around you. Kash’s cadence is rough and his way with words makes you wish you spit the verses. In a simple video with Kash hanging with his bros it shows that he is definitely down.
