Heat in December





We're only 13 days into December and there's been some heat released as of late. Where most look at the 4th quarter as a black hole, these artists here have decided to get you right leading into the new year! Hailing from the City of Pearl, J. Pride has had an interesting year! Her single "You Already Know" has created some major waves and with the release of her new mixtape  December 1st (Spinrilla) , we can only expect this momentum to carry into 2017. Next up we have none other than Coke Bumaye who's also been on the rise this year! His recent release The Red Balloon Project (cokebumaye.bandcamp.com) has the masses anticipating his full length album Seperation due to be released soon! Now many may not know of the Hip-Hop Crooner Jones. But let me be the first to say that his new project 27 Summers (now available on iTunes) is a must have and has the vibe for the season! Lastly we have J. Skyy who just released 7 (Spinrilla) today! Take the time and get to know who I believe is one of Mississippi's brightest young talents! Now I just gave you the rundown so do me a favor and get tuned in! Follow @jpride2u @cokebumaye @notdafakejones @skyysohigh

Hollywood Luck-JU's from the Six

Hollywood Luck
JU's from the Six
4 Stars ****
1st Up/Play Wit It Ent.


Hollywood Luck is showing his artistic genius on his latest effort JU's from the Six. This may be Luck's best effort yet as the music elevates to another level. He gives us an open letter on the Durdy Costello produced "Home". From there, the album goes into overdrive with heavy drums, a smooth cadence and slick wordplay. For longtime Luck fans, this is where we knew Luck could go. To the new listeners, this cake served on a gold platter...eat up! Follow @hollywood_luck

Lil Tank
Str8 Out The Hills
3.5 Stars ***
New Mississippi

Lil Tank is a representation of our young generation. Some may not or even try to understand it. But let's be clear, they too have a voice. On his 2nd effort Str8 Out The Hills 2, you hear the story of a young man who found the hardest way to make an easy living. Tank can draw comparisons to Baton Rouge MC Kevin Gates, but don't get it twisted..Lil Tank has something to prove! Take the time and checkout this project. Follow @lil_tankpmb

Aha Gazelle
Trilliam
4 Stars ****


Louisiana MC Aha Gazelle gives a colorful point of view with LP Trilliam. Aha displays charisma and confidence with a very nostalgic sound. He takes it back to the old Nickelodeon era with his opening track "The Aha Show". Songs "All White Party" & "Elevators" are also high points on this project as you see Aha gives us just more than Bars! Overall, this project is worth the listen. Follow @ahagazelle

Tricky LT 45-Hard 6 EP




Tricky LT 45
Hard 6 EP
45 Music
4 Stars ****


Tricky has solidified himself as an all-round threat. Rapper, Producer, Singer & Actor just to run part of his repertoire. But it all started with the music! Hard 6 gives us a small insight into Tricky's genius and skill. The project was assembled in a week but the sound doesn't come off rushed as he demonstrates his wordplay & vocals on high level. Press play and vibe to this project as we can rest assured this is just an appetizer for something greater! Follow @TrickyLT45

Coke Bumaye-If You Love Me Let Know



cokebumaye.bandcamp.com



Coke Bumaye
If You Love Me Let Me Know
Street Fame
4.5 Stars ****


Coke Bumaye to me can be considered the "Marcus Dupree of the Sipp". He's one of the best on the mic that a lot of people may not ever know about. That may change after Mississippi Legend David Banner introduced the world to Bumaye while he was doing an interview for Revolt TV. Coke, not one for the spotlight, allows his work to speak for him. He speaks loud and clear on If You Love Me Let Me Know. This project is a true reflection of Coke at his best. His delivery is captivating and the music complements his sound perfectly. Checkout records "Energy", "Jackin' For Beats" & "Run". Coke steals the show on "Pain" featuring Major Players Banner, Big K.R.I.T. & Tito Lo. Overall, you can deny Bumaye's energy, so follow the vibe! Follow @cokebumaye

Sir Flywalker-Indigo



Sir Flywalker's Indigo (Click Here)


Mississippi's own Sir Flywalker has returned with the second installment in his "Sounds in Colors Series" entitled Indigo. Picking up where he left off from the Purple EP, Flywalker exhibits his signature smooth and mellow soundscape. This project truly creates a mesmerizing vibe and one many listeners would agree it's definitely a definitive sound for the season! Get in tune and open your ears and minds to visualize in color with Flywalker. Follow @FLYWLKR

David Banner-Before The Box

Stream Before The Box (Click Here)


Mississippi's own David Banner has been keeping busy these days.

He's currently touring all over the country enlightening the masses with his #theGodBox lectures. With all the new ventures on his plate, Banner is still able to provide us with new music! Currently polishing up the new LP also entitled The God Box which is set to be release in May, Banner gives Before The Box! This project gives us just what we need while the main course is being prepared. It has an assortment of unreleased tracks as well as a few bangers we've grown to love from DB!

Silas-The Day I Died



www.dear-silas.com

Silas
The Day I Died (2016)
Ourglass Media Group
4 Stars ****


Silas, the Hip Hop Trumpeter, is a genius that the world almost didn't see. We often hear about athletes or musicians that have displayed great promise but the world never got to see their full potential. Thankfully this is not the case! Silas debut LP TDID gives us the story of a kid who struggles with self identity and soon discovers his calling and thus shares his gift with the world! This project embodies that classic era of Hip-Hop infused with Jazz & clever wordplay. This conceptual piece is truly one that will be conveyed into one of the Best Indie Albums this year! The viral sensation "Gullah Gullah Island" is just a taste of what this project has to offer. This is definitely a project that is "Press Play" worthy! Overall, the journey for Silas is not over. We have yet to see him at his full potential. This is just Pre-Season! Follow his journey @dearsilas

Hello 2016




What's good people? Needless to say 2015 ended on a high note for Mississippi...music wise that is. There was a flurry of talent that made a major impact and we even got the chance to see one of our own cause a viral phenomenon leading into the new year! Hip-Hop Artist Silas has the internet going nuts with his new single "Gullah Gullah Island". The Donche produced track can be seen and heard everywhere. With Major acts such as Mississippi's own Rae Sremmurd getting in on all the excitement! If that's not enough to be hyped about, we're starting the year off strong with Jackson Indie Music Week. From Jan. 11-17, we will see Artist Showcases, Panels & topping the week off with the 2nd Annual Jackson Hip-Hop Awards!


I can't tell you how good it feels to see a lot of the artists I predicted from last years 'Artist to Watch' (Go Back to Jan. 2015 article) are doing as good if not better leading into the new year. I think we're getting ready to see a lot of great things happen in the  State of Mississippi! I can't wait to post this year's 'Artists to Watch' piece. I have been pretty accurate this past 2 years running. I don't plan on slowing down! So to all my fellow Artist, Producers, Bloggers & Tastemakers alike, let's show em what greatness looks like! 

Peace & Love
