Mega Powers – Hit The Streets

Buffalo, NY natives Ideal and Jacebeats presents Mega Powers. “Hit the Streets” is the long awaited debut single off their highly anticipated album 0 = 1. It kicks off with a sample I especially treasure and summer is almost here. They come in peace with a mission, to ignite a conversation and promote positive change in their (our) community through music.

Carl Lurid – Her Poem

Her Poem was released in March as part of Carl Lurid’s recent project Love: THE EP. It’s a dreamlike triumph over self-doubt with an ultimately grounding, atmospheric check of reality. I personally love the esoteric rhymes and artwork. Find more on Facebook and Bandcamp. I’ve got a feeling Carl would love the Button Poetry channel 🙂

When not lost in nostalgia,he can become cathartically aggressive and clever; although, he is not shy to expressive lyrics–laced with a weaving of hyperbole and understatements, which jointly act as an apt depiction of his mental illness. Carl is a writer before a rapper and puts that in his music.

Beneficence feat. AG (of D.I.T.C.) – Smooth Hardcore

Powerful words combined with an excellent visual. Hillside, N.J. spitter Beneficence hits the studio with a vengeance in his new video for Smooth Hardcore, a laid-back Boom bap journey, produced by the UK-based duo Jazz Spastiks, and featuring living BX legend, AG (of Showbiz & AG, D.I.T.C.). Buy it here.

R-Kive – Calm Before The Storm

Originality Alert! Calm Before The Storm is the latest track taken from R-Kive’s newest release ‘Music From The R-Kive Vol 3‘. The track is a chilled out, introspective affair, as R-Kive share’s his thoughts on a 2017 that has so far been dominated by Trump, Brexit and the start of a new Cold War; all over a laid-back boom bap beat and jamming acoustic guitar licks. Follow the vibe on Facebook and Twitter.
