F.L.O.W. – DarkSkin VS. LightSkin (NY)

September 16th, 2012 | By Janei

I was a bit iffy looking at the title of this track being that there is enough debates and discussions on Dark Skin vs Light. I fear for a race riot. But after listening, F.L.O.W. dropped some good points on the views of thee ah white man’s perversions.


Skyzoo – Theo Vs. JJ. (Dreams Vs. Reality) [Mixtape] (NY)

August 31st, 2012 | By Janei

With this project, I wanted it to be a bridge between “The Great Debater” and “A Dream Deferred”. This mixtape literally picks up where “The Great Debater” left off and leads you directly into “A Dream Deferred.” The tape is split into 2 parts, Theo Huxtable and JJ Evans. The first half of the tape has me rhyming as if I were Theo, with the world from his point of view. Being well off, having to live up to a family’s expectations due to their success, etc. The second half is from JJ’s view, with the sound being slightly more aggressive and the stories built with an “in need of something” attitude. The tape is the idea of the vast contrasts of a life that my people and I dreamed of and aspired to as kids (Theo) versus a life that was more of our reality (J.J). This one is for US. Enjoy” – Skyzoo

Nneka-Showin Love x Mind vs. Heart (NG)

March 13th, 2012 | By Janei

For once BET did something right when they introduced us with the BET Music Matters list. I found some great artists from there; Nneka being one of them. Nigerian born singer/songwriter Afro-German warrior princess, Nneka has already been said to revolutionize soul music. Her music has been described as 21st century soul music with an Afrobeat influence. She has already toured with the greats such as The Roots, Lauryn Hill, and Lenny Kravitz. Its great that she’s making a name for herself. Check out some of her material, Showin Love and Mind Vs. Heart.
