New Video: E Major – Secrets

New Music: UllNevaNo x Illien – Confidence is Everything

UllNevaNo is one of the most prolific artists in the game and he doesn’t show signs of slowing up in 2015. To jump off the new year he and Norfolk, VA/Oxnard CA producer Illien unleash a 9 track project entitled “Confidence is Everything.” Neva’s ever present rapid fire, ping pong flow contrasts Illien’s smooth, soulful sound beds as both show a confidence in their craft that makes the title of the album apt.

Check out the full project, which is available for purchase (name your price), and the video for the titular track below.

New Album: Rome Cee – The Glimps(E)P

rome-cee

I just posted Rome Cee‘s tracks American Made and Signs, and now the EP that features these gems is here. A really well rounded, sincere project from one of the hardest working dudes I know.

The title of the EP, Glimpse is descriptive of me being able to look into the future back when I was experiencing a troubled past. Most of the tracks are heavy in recollections in which I felt that feeling of Glimpsing onward.

This EP includes one guest appearance from K. Matth and has production from E. Hill, Infinite99, God Sense, TueLv, PanamaCanal, Paradoxx & Ancient Soundz.

New Music: Rome Cee – American Made

ROMECEEAMERICANMADE2

New track from my man, Rome Cee. This one is from his upcoming EP entitled #Glimpse which drops December 6th. The combination of the emotive track, produced by Infinite99, and Rome’s honest, straight forward real talk about what it’s like being a young black dude in the U.S. gives this track that feeling of melancholy, which could leave anyone wondering if the American dream that we learned about is even real anymore. Nothing like a track that can make you think AND feel.

American Made deals with the ups and downs of life as a citizen in American Society and the pressure of pledging allegiance to a country that promises a dream but delivers a variety of different circumstances and outcomes to all Americans alike.
