A Rap EP rooted In contemporary Nigerian musical culture

Review of Nigerian Cyprus-based rapper Masscut new EP release "P.I.N". In an attempt to summarize "P.I.N" in a nutshell, it will be right to tag it as a rap EP rooted in contemporary Nigerian musical culture, and branches out into every facet of the artist’s current environment.

‘Fantasize’ is a grandiose rant in which Arlen airs his discontentment with his station in life as well as the socio-political climate at the time of his writing, while defiantly daring to dream big.  He began writing the song during his gruelling tenure in medical school when he truly began questioning his purpose in life. Lesroy ‘A.P.’ Byers of the Oakville Collective captures perfectly in the production, the sentiment of Arlen’s hopeful helplessness.

Lágrimas de Sangre or LDS is one of the most famous Spanish bands. Although generally catalogued as Hip Hop, their music is strongly influenced by Rock and Reggae, and performs on stage with live instruments, making the live show a truly engaging experience for the fans. They are a politically engaged band, often singing about social commentary, but also have a lighter side with several party anthems and “Feel-good” music. “Volver” is definitely the new hit of the Catalan band.

Disconnected

The Disconnect is about this creation, this plan, called life that is given to each of us, and how there are those of us who cannot accept or understand its expression.

Xxxtacy

Pure Hood Xxxtacy, Vol. 1 offers a fine mix of smooth R&B, Hip-Hop that is tailored to La'Domour vocal qualities. With a voice that sometimes resembles that of the late and great George Michael, coloured version, and a vocal style that reflects Babyface's, La'Domour is in good company. 

This band won't fail to make you dance your ass off

Northside KUISi is a concept album narrated by news reporters from a distant future who speak an ancient, futuristic creole language made up of Lengua-Palenkera, Anishinaabemowin, Spanish and English. It’s a carefully-woven song cycle of 12 songs with an extra seven hidden compositions. Prophetic words from the future.
