Flux|Love Yourself Cover


OK! Justin Beiber does what he does to the ladies well but Flux buys that girl sexy lingerie and then proceeds to peel it off of her. I do not know why nor am I trying to figure out why Flux revives my love for R&B but he does. His voice crawls up in your ear and croons the fuck out of your soul from your inner ear. It is because of him I am interested in adding more sultry R&B to my heavily saturated trap playlist. He out did himself with this cover and it is honestly the best cover I've seen. I loved the back drop of the downtown area familiar to St. Petersburg natives but also to tourist since it is near Sun Dial (Baywalk) area. Simple yet effective his interactions represented so many artist to me. If you love what you do and are really engulfed in your craft you'll be anywhere working. Flux delivered a preferred rendition for me and he did more than justice to this already classic song. Shout Out to FLUX and his beautiful execution to this cover. This is the First Official Cover Video by Flux. Check out my write up on Flux from three years ago as well!

Project Youngin X War Stories Video Bomb| W/ Rate

Growth is always a good thing and Project Youngin demonstrates progressive growth. This track is heart felt, realistic, and proves he is more than a "Project Youngin".  A year ago I would have said Youngin would need a feature to draw my attention or have dope visuals but these visual were not flashy and not in the hood. He gave me a simple video with a deeper message. I liked how the production of the video came out and Bungy Clips did his thing as far as production. The lyrical context was finally there for me. It was relatable and showed that like everyone else he goes through things. He has hopes and dreams. Expectations for Youngin? More songs that grab at the heart. This is by far my favorite track from Project Youngin and I hope that he continues to evolve as a more lyrical artist. Check out the visuals for War Stories Freestyle below as well as my rate for this entry.

Song Bomb: JF X King Phy| Fever W/ Rate

Produced by Chris Prythm, the production is the foundation that sets the tone for the Hip Hop vibe that Jack Fletcher embodies. Featuring "Trappin Outta Space" mastermind King Phy Da Beast. The mash up between both artist couldn't be more opposite but King Phy took on an entirely different sound in this track. It was as if Jack Fletcher gave a little of his artistry to bring another persons inner hip hop vibe to the table.Given the countries on going battle with the Black Lives Matter movement and the countless American civilians being assassinated by those who are sworn in to serve and protect us seems like the fuel behind the track. What Fever are we exactly trying to catch and or avoid. Is it the Fever of rising up or is it the fever of those that are sleeping during such a prevalent time. The cover art for the track is dope. It depicts a riot participant with a gas mask and a strong Black Power fist as officers stand off in the background in protective gear. These past two years have been the most racially driven with the murders of unarmed black people. We will never forget Oscar Grant, Trayvon Martin, Tamir Rice, Sandra Bland, Mike Brown, Eric Garner and countless other's that have lost their lives. One day we will rise up above our crooked government and we will win. All these deaths will not be in vain. Jack Fletcher serves a double dose of lyrical content as well as witty  punch lines that will definitely have the wheels in the brains of listeners turning. It is political, it is raw, it is current. This is what hip hop is about story telling while bringing awareness and I believe Jack does that time and time again. It is never something you've heard before he is always up on the times. I want all who have taken time to read this entry to really listen to the words of Fletcher and really get into his message. Check out the audio below a long with my rate for this track.
