Poo Grams – From Hell


Poo Grams is from Newburgh, NY. The same place introduced to me by Ses Da Great as a “hood surrounded by the (Catskill) mountains.” When asked about the project Poo Grams said, “when I say ‘From Hell’… it’s symbolic to where I come from, not only was I living in hell physically, I was in hell mentally.”

I promise you, this project will have you nodding your head to on-point flows over dope beats, while your jiggling brain is fully enlisted into the workings of a very seasoned lyricist.

NOEY – My Way [Mixtape]

If I can greatly encourage you to listen to anything this spring, it will be My Way from NYC rapper, NOEY. My Way is a diary that transitions smoothly between subjects like death, drugs, women, hope, and success. NOEY’s lackadaisical tone fills My Way with dense lyrical content over both laidback and bouncy beats, along with both simple and wildly complex flows and rhyme schemes. My Way is an elaborate, multi-layered project that serves as excellent music for cruising, or while enjoying other extracurricular activities (cough, cough).

Ontario – Airport Love [Video]

My cousin just put me up on this DMV native. His smooth falsetto vocals reminds me of Maxwell or Bilal and the track is reminiscent of a Mayer Hawthorne cut. Check out his new video Airport Love.

Gubitron is an electro producer out of Albany, NY and James Rock is a producer/rapper out of the small town of Peru, NY. This bumping dubstep track produced by Gubitron overlaid with fresh verses from James Rock, “The Outlier” is an example of the internet winning; bringing together the worlds of two very versatile and talented young artists, both under the age of 21. The future is looking good.

Kwamizzle – Full Mental Alchemy

It isn’t usually known as a holiday of gift giving, but on this past Earth Day, Kwamizzle bestowed upon us his latest production, “Full Mental Alchemy.”

Its been a little over a year since I’ve started recording for FMA. I wanted to up the ante from my last project. I wanted to really show that I could bring out that essence of hip hop. I felt like that particular feeling was the exact same vibe one gets while listening to any Alchemist production. Full Mental Alchemy. Alchemy, basically, is being able to create something great out of “nothing”. With FMA I aimed to create something great using my “full mental”, my mind. It seemed almost perfect to create Full Mental Alchemy, I’m very excited to see what listeners think about the project. I want to thank everyone in TRUSIC for encouraging me to push myself to be great, and also for being examples of the paths to follow. Enjoy the project and share it with a friend. -KWAMIZZLE

SES Da Great – Duality Part II: Above & Below

Above & Below is the second installation in SES Da Great‘s Duality mixtape trilogy. SES explores another way to look at man’s dual nature in Above & Below; this time focusing on conflicts within one’s self. Above & Below is the hip hop form of the classic debates of good vs. evil, nature vs. nurture. SES opens up about his struggles with his demons in the past and present, but balances it by discussing some of his victories in other songs. SES Da Great’s display of honesty and complex feelings in Above & Below makes it an instant classic.
