Think Of Me by Azlo Raps / Intense Expression of Unrequited Love

Azlo Raps:

Hip-hop rap artist Azlo Raps has just released his latest single, “Think Of Me”, which is a captivating rap track with intense musical and vocal expression.

Azlo always had an immense passion for music and he began writing and recording music in his makeshift studio garage with his friend when he was 18 yrs old. His influences stem from a culmination of rock bands and rap artists such as; Papa Roach, Three Days Grace, Lil Wayne and Eminem.

“Think Of Me” was inspired by an ex-lover that Azlo had a strong connection with. We all have that one love we can’t forget, the one that got away but is still in our thoughts. In this song, Azlo unfolds a story of desperation and intrigue.

“Think Of Me” opens with a slow tempo dreamy melody, and deep hip-hop bass beats creating an intense soundscape. An incessant subwoofer drives the song forward with a feeling of heaviness and intensity.

Azlo delivers a powerful performance communicating uneasy emotions of disgust, exasperation and frustration. His forceful and harsh tone heightens the intensity of his message as he spits the lyrics out like bullets.

Descriptive rhythmic verses create a vivid image of the unfolding story. We are given a raw and unfiltered insight into Azlo’s emotions through lyrics such as: “no need to stress I gave my best, deep down in now you upset. Leave me alone girl you obsessed. Not gonna lie, I’m unimpressed.”

This catchy rap song leaves a lasting impression on the listener and if you enjoy music from artists such as Jelly Roll and Killstation then Azlo Raps will fit perfectly on your rap playlist.

Meet Coco Bean:

Coco Bean is back with his second release “Pimp Stick”, from his sonic trilogy, which set to be another smash hit. Coco Bean is the alter ego of the award-winning, multi-talented singer, songwriter, producer and filmmaker, Phil Elam.

In March of this year, Coco Bean burst on the scenes with his debut single, “My Name is Coco Bean”. This song was a bold introduction to the fiercely independent spirit of Coco Bean. His unapologetic and triumphant attitude has connected with many new fans.

His message is clear and declares to the world that we must be proud of ourselves, no matter who we are, or where we are from. It’s no wonder his debut release has already reached over 100k streams on Spotify.

Now, his newest single, “Pimp Stick” is already gaining serious momentum and many playlists are debuting the track at #1! The music video is currently in pre-production and is expected to be an incredible visual experience.

This entertaining track calls for everyone to put up their Pimp Stick! Coco Bean told us: “everyone has a pimp stick, it’s that rod of strength which is buried deep within all of us. Your Pimp Stick is that courage you have that keeps you stepping forward when everything around you is trying to tell you to give up.”

So, the next time you are faced with adversity, prejudice, ignorance or any other type of discrimination, put up your pimp stick!

Pimp Stick:

“Pimp Stick” opens with a highly humorous narrative that creates a light-hearted atmosphere and a vivid image of Coco Bean with his 24-carat pimp stick.

In true Coco Bean style, this song has a tongue in cheek, comedic streak to it. This is emphasised by catchy, witty lyrics and amusing sound effects. It’s virtually impossible to resist the temptation to sing along with Coco Bean’s anthemic chorus when he sings: “put up your pimp stick!”

The blend of uber melodic old skool hip hop vibes and electronic dance music make this track completely infectious and unforgettable. It is the perfect summer jam to add to your party playlist. Not only does it thrill listeners but, more importantly, it encourages people to find their inner strength and stand up for what is right.

This track will easily fascinate and delight any listener. If you enjoy music from artists such as Eminem and Drake then Coco Bean will fit perfectly on your party playlist.

What’s next for Phil Elam & his alter ego Coco Bean?

It seems that there is no end to Phil’s talents and there are many other exciting projects to be revealed. Firstly, he will be co-hosting the 5th Annual, I See You Awards in August with the creator, Terri Lee, from CBS News Radio, WWJ.

The award ceremony returns to the landmark Emagine Theatre in Royal Oak, Michigan this year, to celebrate independent filmmakers. Phil has won 5 trophies with the multi-award-winning short film, Swing Low, directed by the highly talented Marvin Towns, Jr. Awards include Best Actor, Best Short Film and Best Director.

He is also currently filming a new web series pilot. This project is connected with the female director writing team of Robbie Barnes-Kyriakides and Nonie Shiverick. Phil has told us: “Robbie & Nonie are exciting visionaries. I can’t wait for you to see what they are doing.”

Finally, we have discovered that Phil has signed an NDA (non-disclosure agreement) for a feature film, which he would neither confirm nor deny… His lips were sealed tighter than a preacher’s wife girdle after a summer ice cream social. We cannot wait to see what this master of the arts will delight us with next.

Meet Scar Nitti:

New York-based hip-hop artist and songwriter Scar Nitti has recently released his latest EP Price Check.

Nitti is an impressive wordsmith who has always had a passion for music and songwriting. Hip-hop opened a world of expressive art for Nitti, a portal in which he was able to convey his experiences. He told us: “music has always been my therapy, with hip hop, in particular, being the language that spoke to me the most.”

As well as being a talented artist, Nitti is also an entrepreneur who is developing a brand named WealthNotWages Lifestyle LLC. The idea behind this company is to encourage young people to focus on long term goals and stay committed to their journey.

His EP Price Check is a collection of 4 songs, “Scan It”, “Pressure Point”, “Breeze Thru” and “Still a Soldier”. This is a versatile and effective project which was inspired by Nitti’s inner questioning, “how much am I willing to pay for this success journey?”.

Nitti has crafted an impressive EP where he expertly communicates deep emotions and inner dialogues through poetic rhymings and perfectly articulated vocals.

The EP opens with a slow vibing track that has a catchy melody and gentle soundscape. Nitti weaves imageries in our mind’s eye through witty lyrics such as: “you gotta be on high alert when you living too well. Started eating from the earth, steamed broccoli and kale”.

The third track on the EP, “Breeze Thru” incorporates a stronger lo-fi and RnB vibe. Soulful backing singing blends harmoniously with mellow yet poignant rapping as the vocals of Nitti and DJ Tek Wun join together telling us: “it’s a cold cold world, that we’re living in”.

The final track on this EP “Still a Soldier” displays a powerful soundscape with strong beats that invoke the imagery of soldiers marching. This song has the makings of a great rap anthem which many listeners will connect with.

Collaboratively they named themselves the “Dissociates” and they released their first album in 2018 titled THE SAMADHI EXPERIENCE. Together, they have delved into the darker realms of rap and hip-hop creating intensely notable music.

THE WiND has been around since the beginning of time and also goes under the name Indigo Flow. Omni grew up being influenced by everything hip-hop and he was a true student of the golden era. His inspiration arises not just from his love for hip-hop but also from his interest in quantum reality.

Deathbox:

An intensely heavy soundscape opens this track producing a strong sensation that a significant message is about to unfold. This effect immediately entices the listener and sparks major intrigue.

Omni delivers a profound performance that demands attention. He carries a noticeably serious tone in his delivery and his wordplay skills produce impressively rhythmic verses.

Listeners are absorbed into a darker realm provoked by poignant lyrics such as: “There’s no avoiding the voice of the past, it creeps in like poisonous gas, what’s more annoying than that”.

Black Panther – Yearwood / Intense Demonstration of Racial Injustice

Meet Yearwood:

LA-based rap artist, singer and songwriter, Yearwood has just released an impressive music video, titled “Black Panther”, about the inequality and abuse of black lives. Yearwood has created this in conjunction with the 100 year anniversary of the Tulsa Race Massacre of 1921 and current systemic racism in the USA.

Yearwood was born and raised in Trinidad and Tobago, where he grew up surrounded by dancehall and soca music. However, music didn’t play an important role in his life until he was introduced to DMX.

Through artists such as DMX and JAY-Z, Yearwood discovered a strong connection to rap music. It provided a portal for him to express himself through art.

He began to pursue a career in music five years ago after his first session at a recording studio in New York. After this, he not only cultivated a prosperous career as an artist but, also built a data science-driven startup company around music.

Black Panther:

“Black Panther” is an incredibly powerful rap song and music video from his upcoming debut album, Animal Farm. It may cause some viewers to feel uneasy, but this kind of brutal honesty is exactly what is needed.

For decades there was an intentional cover-up of the Tulsa Race Massacre. Scholars later discovered that the police and state militia archives concerning the massacre were missing. There were no public ceremonies, memorials for the dead or any efforts to commemorate the events of May 31-June 1, 1921. As a result, until recently the Tulsa Race Massacre was rarely mentioned in history books, taught in schools or even talked about.

The visual footage of this music video alone is enough to take your breath away. Impactful images of BLM protests, Ku Klux Klan burnings, white supremacists, beatings, and constant flashes of inequality statements flood the screen.

The impact is heightened as we listen to Yearwood’s compelling and poignant lyrics, such as: “we’re marching with our fists up and nothing can stop us. This should make your blood boil. You should be seething. Think about George Floyd, he should be breathing”.

Yearwood has created a seriously impressive piece of art that delivers a potent and lasting impression. He presents a clear and thought-provoking message that should be seen, heard and shared.

Watch the music video right here…

If you would like to learn more about the Tulsa Race Massacre follow this link: https://www.history.com/topics/roaring-twenties/tulsa-race-massacre

What’s next for Yearwood?

Yearwood has exciting projects in the pipeline this year and he is set to release his upcoming album, Animal Farm this summer. This is a seven-song project with each song named after an animal. Black Panther is the first single from this project and we are excited to see the completion of this album. If you enjoy music from artists such as Kendrick Lamar and Big Sean, then Yearwood will fit perfectly on your rap playlist.

Keep and eye out for his future releases, in the meantime Yearwood has a message for all his listeners: “if Black Panther resonates with you. If this captures the way systemic racism or white supremacy in America makes you feel, share this video with your friends, enemies, and your neighbours. Make people uncomfortable. Spark a dialogue. Especially if you’re white. We appreciate all the allies we have in the fight for equality and we won’t make nearly as much progress as we can without your help.”

When I Sleep – Betty Boo Banksta / Inspiring Music Video Release

Betty Boo Banksta:

Eclectic singer-songwriter Betty Boo Banksta has just released a captivating new music video for her song, “When I Sleep”.

Banksta has an intense passion for her music and expertly utilises this portal to express herself in a unique and fascinating form.

Her first professional musical encounter came when she was invited to accompany a friend to drop off tracks at the Bobby Brown studio, where Outkast was recording.

Banksta jumped at the chance as she was completely enamoured with André 3000. When she arrived they were listening to Aquemini and asked her opinion. Without hesitation, Banksta announced that it was missing her voice, so the guys invited her to jump on the mic!

Not one to miss out on an opportunity, Banksta tore that mic up and even has a trophy to prove it.

Her background is in hip-hop, but this fascinating woman can delve into any genre you throw at her.

When I Sleep:

The music video “When I Sleep”, displays what a captivating performer Banksta is, both vocally and visually. Here, she showcases her tantalising energy and passion, as well as her unique style.

She delivers a dazzling performance in a strobe-lit studio where she plays the piano and sexily crawls across it. Dreamy, smoke-filled scenes bounce between her on the piano to singing in a microphone booth and performing on a stage.

Her bold style is inspiring and she sports a sweater with a huge eye on the front, suggesting to her viewers that she sleeps with one eye open. Or perhaps this represents her inner eye, which is wide open when she sleeps, seeing into the unconscious realm.

The inspiration for this song came from Banksta’s mother who would always tell her that she sleeps too much. She told us: “this song is about the awakening of the mind, spirit, and soul. There is resting but our consciousness never sleeps. Ever!”.

Banksta had an amazing team behind her for the production of this video, which was directed by the renowned Kevin Garrett and co-produced by the incredible vision of Reginald Dewayne Boyland.

Watch the music video to “When I Sleep” right here…

What’s next for Betty Boo Banksta:

Banksta’s upcoming projects are going to be exploring her musical roots in rap. We are excited to see what this diverse artist will showcase next.
