In the beginning the origins of Hip Hop music was used to teach and unite. In 2019 an artist returns with that intent.

On his fifth studio album, Def-I truly shows a reflection of all he is. A community activist who works consistently with the youth and organizations to better others. Def-I reached out to Southern California Hip Hop veteran producer Ariano & Washington States legend Smoke M2D6. The production is cinematic, moody and true to Def-I’s Boom BAP roots. Combining true lyrical craftsmanship with content that touches the heart, the album ‘Dream Trails’ is a reflection of many years on the road, and the travels embarked on by this is New Mexico Native MC .

The album features legends like Kool Keith, Abstract Rude, JFK Ninjaface, DJ Element, and a slew of talented artists and friends that add harmonies, vocals, hooks and live instrumentation. 
Opening up about his personal battles and bringing light to the pain in the world , Def-I is not just a rapper. He is a true artist that bleeds his craft on two tracks that unite the young and the old. 
This is not his beginning but far from the end….Dream Trails

Switzerland / Ghana based rapper Kromanteng, who has his roots in Accra and was raised in the US, releases the video for his single “Real Code”.

He dedicates the track to the memory of Nipsey Hussle with the following words:

“Rest In Power Ermias Joseph Asghedom aka Nipsey Hussle. 
Recently we have seen an upsurge of African popularity within worldwide “pop culture”. To be African is trendy now. Sometimes people get a fake sense of unity when they are emotionally driven. In reality, there are serious issues that need solutions before “black unity” can occur. Self work needs to be done before joining a collective in any situation; so understanding yourself and the trauma you’ve seen in your life is essential before you try to join hands with others that you feel are similar to yourself. 
We don’t have a Wakanda in our everyday lives in Africa or in the diaspora. I stick to a code that is not defined by being “conscious”, or “woke”; I do what I feel is right from my heart. I wrote this song to reflect those ideas, so I don’t really care if some people feel offended, I know my intentions and live them through the work that’s done. 
“The Marathon Continues” – Nipsey Hussle. 
“We got work to do” – Kromanteng

Co-starring: Jayden and Janiya Fofie

Super producer meets super MC!

Los Angeles production wiz Duke Westlake blends bright synths and the neck snap factor with the playfully catchy, lyrical stylings of Menacin Johnson on this galactic ride. Phil Mao directs this spacey, hazy visual for their first single from their impressive full length album, released on The Order/Alpha Pup label entitled, ‘Stargate Aquarius’, now available on all digital outlets.

Drop into a wormhole for way-out rhythms and rap paradigms in Stargate Aquarius(The Order Label), the new LP by Los Angeles lyricist Menacin Johnson and producer Duke Westlake. Johnson’s golden era raps and Westlake’s riveting beats play together with pleasing juxtaposition: aggressive yet beautiful, gentle yet hard, vintage yet future.

Playful tracks like “Level Up” and “They Can’t Hold Me Down” sparkle with dreamlike color. Soulful, starry-eyed echoes create a sun-faded richness in “What It Means (feat. Rain Bisou).” Ride the feel-good flow in “Summer ‘19” as it flips through blue-sky days and lemonade – the blunts are already rolled. “Bigger (feat. Frank Nitt)” revs up fast and flickers while “Coldest Party Crisis (feat. Slimkid3 and Pigeon John)” slaps its way into outer space. Brilliant, bouncing, and free – “Show Me the Real You (feat. Ariano)” floats off on a high note that thumps hard and glows deep.

Stargate Aquarius by Menacin Johnson and Duke Westlake is out now on The Order Label and available at digital retailers worldwide.

Check out the video and grab your copy of the album below.

Khalid Salaam drops “Plenty of fish” from the new “Barehand Fisherman” album. The song was produced by himself and features Detroit’s own, Boog Brown, whom you may be familiar with from her Mello Music debut “Brown Study” album produced entirely by Apollo Brown, as well as her other phenomenal projects to follow. This was a beautiful pairing of tones and clever wording in which both compliment the other in the manner that opposites should.

Check out the track and grab your copy below.
