[MUSIC] Correy Parks (@CorreyParks) – ‘The Layover EP’

correy parks - the layover ep

It gives us great pleasure to witness growth in the beginning of an artists’ career. From his first project that dropped not too long ago, to his current release ‘The Layover,’ Correy Parks has been building on a foundation of talent, passion, and uncharted potential. ‘The Layover’ is a great collection of songs that show the growth and range of what Correy is all about.

The first track, ‘Arrival,’ will instantly draw you into the project. With his rapid flow and complex rhyme scheme, Correy passionately and furiously lets the world know that he has arrived. From there, the mood goes from a laid back vibe to a conscious vibe to more rapid fire bars. All of this is less important to the content of ‘The Layover,’ which seems to be tailored to send a message of creative and internal struggle in today’s society.

I recommend you sit down and listen to the project in its entirely. Then, run it back and pay attention to the words that are being said. It’s easy to get so caught up in the flow and the excellent production, that you miss the uplifting message between the lines.

[MUSIC] Habit Blcx (@HabitBlcx) – ‘Progress is a Process’ EP Campaign

progressisaprocess

In my years of DJing in Los Angeles, I met a number of artists through different outlets. However, the most talented / promising was Habit Blcx (previously known as Rappinismyhabit). From the moment I heard his music I knew that he was on to something big. His passion and emotion was clearly illustrated through his rhymes and content, and each project he released was light years ahead of the last. His next EP, ‘Progress is a Process,’ is in production and he’s asking all of us lovers of Hip Hop music to join in the process. Check out the video for the campaign below.

Check out https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/progress-is-a-process-ep to see how you can contribute. Money is great, but even just spreading the word will work wonders. Everyone always asks where did real Hip Hop music go, and I’m telling you its alive and well in Habit Blcx. Listen to his previous work here if you don’t believe me.

[MUSIC] Tha Audio Unit (@ThaAudioUnit) – ‘Mini Boss’ Instrumental Album

Adding to his already impressive catalog and resume for 2014, (credits: Jeremih, Smoke DZA, Willie The Kid, Nes Wordz, King Ezz) Columbus, Ohio producer extraordinaire Tha Audio Unit winds down the year by releasing the musically adventurous instrumental project Mini Boss. It’s largely inspired by the soundtracks and sounds of the 16 Bit gaming consoles. Those of us that grew up on Super Nintendo and Sega Genesis all have fond memories from those games, and to them A.U. pays tribute by giving them “an extra life”
