I really like this emcee…… when I saw the video for his track “The one That Got Away” produced by Manny Fresh ….it was reminiscent of back when Lil Wayne was a up and coming artist …….This New Orleans rapper has been featured in the unsigned hype category of the XXL magazine i only one or two songs away from being noticed by a major label in my opinion……
Check out the video after the jump:
just saw this on 2dopeboyz (which is a site I am on for hours daily lol) and got so hype becuz the initial BlakRoc album (The Black Keys…….. DD172……..and hella musical artist including Curren$y, RZA, Jim Jones, Nicole Wray, and a host of others) …….. If this CD is have as epic as the original this could be an amazing project with such rappers as U-God (I thought that dude was dead its been so long since I’ve heard anything from him lol ) the ever lyrical Jay electronica of course the harlem capo Jim Jones , Curren$y and Sean Price.
I’m not sure of the release date as of right now ….but check out the trailer after the jump …. you’ll be hearing more shortly….im sure!
I had to post this while dealing with my bought with insomnia …….. I had the pleasure of checking out XO during the Kendrick Lamar Show in the early part of August at the 9:30 club in DC. This emcee has a lot of energy on the stage and even tho I could hear much of what he was saying due to the screaming girls behind me and being positioned near the stereo equipment I did enjoy his performance…… i remember listening to his mixtape Monumental like two years ago and liking his music…..This is only after seeing this video and getting word that his new project Monumental 2 dropped yesterday.
I love how the video was shot in the rain and they used the hurricane to shoot guerrilla style in the metro and throughout DC …….
I’ll post the mixtape later today.
Here is a dope track by two of the most under rated artist that i believe i have ever heard ….. Foreal Grae and Kwale shud come out with a album together ….. it may not be a commercial hit but i wud pick it up! ….. and i think any other real fan of either of these emcees would do the same!
This is a dope video concept as well….
