REVIEW: Young Jerz – No Gimmicks

Truth in rap…not necessarily a new concept, but it seems to have been distorted in years past. Thankfully, artists like Young Jerz are getting back to the intended mission of hip hop. I thoroughly enjoyed the rapper/producer and New Jersey native’s new mixtape: No Gimmicks-Presented by DJ Ill Will & DJ Rockstar. […]

Review: Frank Ramz – Frankenstein

All that’s left is for the rest of the world to take notice. […]

REVIEW: Mike Dreams – Dreamer’s Poetry

Mike Dreams masters the art of fusing poetry, sampling (including the high speed sample, which can be wack if it’s not handled properly), and good-old fashioned story-telling to make cuts that you actually want to hear. Musically and lyrically, Dreams seems much older than his 21 years, which is a key component when making grown up music for grown up listeners. We can only hope that the world is ready for what he’s bringing. […]
