New Music: Rome Cee – By The Pound

Starting 2016 off right, Rome Cee dropped this new track “By The Pound.” The beat has a woozy kind of atmospheric sound that I think works well for Rome. He tends to pack a lot of words into his bars and simpler beats do a great job to highlight his wordplay and let his vocals come forward. I also like that it sounds very current. Rome can go old school and do the 90’s sound but he is equally as strong or maybe even stronger at rhyming over more progressive tracks. As he says in this hook this is Rome Cee stripped down and on to better things.

New Music: UllNevaNo x [w], plus “Confidence is Everything” re-release

MIRROR-NEVA

My man UllNevaNo never seems to stop working. I am a little late posting his full length with [w], but we did have some of the singles here. The full length is one of the best by Neva, IMO. The whole MGNTK movement with Neva, logic marselis and Illien is really fucking solid. Everything they’ve been doing is dope and really interesting.
