Sky James is a fresh voice in the indie Hip Hop scene, coming out of New York City. Bred & raised in the Big Apple, Sky James attended Harlem School of Arts where he discovered his voice through poetry. His knack for poetic rhyme eventually evolved into Hip Hop, and his love for it.
Blending Hip Hop, Soul and Funk while adding a dash of his own flavor, Sky James began to write and record music in 2012. Progression has been his focus and its end result is manifested in his latest project release. “#JustCause” is just Sky James’ second project, but he is looking to gain the ears and hearts of more fans with his sophomore effort.
Released in November of 2013, the project is still new to many ears who are just beginning to or haven’t begun to familiarze themselves with Sky James. “One Day” is the project’s lead single and spotlights the smoother side of the Bronx artist.
Backed by a fairly relaxed instrumental provided by Kristos, Sky delivers his lyrics at a slow pace while tuning into his inner R&B singer on the hook.
Internet-obsessed Chippy Nonstop is known for a few things: bringing strong party vibes, giving life to new trends, having a bigger personality than the realm itself, and for creating banging party trap songs, but her newest song “Alone” reveals a softer, more tender side she’s never shown before. Produced by Felix Snow, the song opens up with a clap of thunder that forecasts a somber mood but quickly develops into an up-tempo sex-kitten EDM track based on a very personal but highly-relatable topic: people’s overuse of technology to avoid vulnerability and intimacy.
Admits Chippy, “Basically whenever I get really close to someone, I just push them away because I’m scared of getting too close. I use technology as escapism. Even if I feel passionate about certain people that come in and out of my life, I look towards distractions (in this case WiFi) to get away.” Wifi passwords >> sexts.
Los Angeles-based producer Felix Snow, who has produced for notable R&B artists such as SZA, Leona Lewis, and Gallant, assisted Chippy with the beat. Chippy acknowledges that “Alone” is a departure from her usual energetic party music, but explains that there are many different sides to her as a musician. “I love getting ratchet, obviously, being crazy and dancing on tables at parties, but people don’t realize I actually really like songwriting. I’ve been working with pop producers on some other artists’ records and I just love making songs.” The track does not appear on her latest mixtape, #finallyverified, but the project is still available for download on iTunes.
The blog-o-sphere should by now be accustomed to a weekly release from New Deal Cult leader Chris Crack. This week’s release, however, is a bit more than we’ve come to expect from Crack & the crew with their weekly drops.
Seemingly out of the blue, Chris Crack & the New Deal Crew decided to put together an EP project as an early Christmas gift to the fans and loyal supporters of his music. The title of the EP project is “Freeswag” and it features 5 brand new, original tracks from Chris Crack. All 5 of which he uses his self-branded form of lyricism he refers to as freeswagging. The project came together this past weekend. Over the course of 4 days the songs were recorded, mixed, & mastered and the was video shot & edited. The artwork was created, literally, an hour or so ago.
The TMTHY TRTL produced “White Van Music”, whose official music video dropped this past Tuesday, is the lead single and, so far, sole video for the impromptu project.
The Freeswag EP features production from TMTHY TRTL, Swag, and his Mayhem Machine brother & Soul Trap curator Tree.
Crack & the New Deal Crew figured after all the money you probably spent on Black Friday & Cyber Monday that you deserved a little #FREESWAG. Enjoy…

After headlining festivals worldwide and throwing some of the biggest parties of the year, A-Trak and Fool’s Gold are announcing the complete opposite: their second annual House Party tour. The name is not figurative: they are taking the sweaty, frantic energy of their massive Day Off events and Clubhouse stages and stuffing it into actual intimate residences, this time all in the greater
Los Angeles area. The exact whereabouts of the houses are to remain a secret until the week of the event. Each show will feature a headlining set from Trizzy himself and support from bass kingpin Salva, with plenty of surprise guests and hosting duties held down by resident Fool’s Gold MC Donnis.
Damondre Grice-known to most as MondreM.A.N. (Main.Attrakionz.N****) is just like any other 22 year old who grew up in North Oakland. His life is an unpredictable ride along a series of precipices, but unlike his geographical peers he is one half of Main Attrakionz, The Greatest Duo Ever. After catching the attention of Fader, Pitchfork, Mishka, and other prominent outlets early in their career, the duo released their widely-acclaimed 808′s and Dark Grapes II in the summer of 2011. With the release, Main Attrakionz drew praise from tastemaker outlets within and beyond the realm of hip hop. The project featured a track “Take 1″ produced by longtime collaborator Clams Casino, and a then-unknown A$AP Rocky. Rocky later repurposed the track for his own album, and the potential impact of Mondre’s art became evident. This crucial moment in his career inspired Damondre, to push his art further while firmly cementing his place in the current era of rap. Drawing from an existence that finds positivity and productivity amongst precarious paths, MondreM.A.N.’s art is inextricably linked to his life as a citizen of North Oakland. Whether he’s encouraging you to bounce, swag hard, cloudd up, or take a moment and appreciate the beauty of life, he does it all with an inimitable sincerity.
After the release of his debut LP, They Say I Struggle Rap, MondreM.A.N. is back today to share the third video from his album. The “Sometimes” video was co-directed by the song’s producer Al Jieh and his brother Tim Jieh, who also directed the earlier “Intro Sh*t” video.

Ryshon Jones and Thelonious Martin come together for the latest release from the Philadelphia emcee’s upcoming album Track Fifteen, “Three Kay”. Point blank, this is rap in it’s rawest form. He doesn’t want to offer up too much information about the song as he wants the music to speak for itself. He does however give us a reveal of the projects cover, which is a message he received from a fan a year and a half ago. He says “there is nothing I could come up with for the artwork that would speak louder than these words and it plays a big part of the inspiration behind the project. I’m excited for people to see what special guests I have brought in as well as the visuals and music to come.” Look for Track Fifteen to be released early next year.
