Bklyn Lo - "Set Trippin (Remix)"

I was first introduced to the sounds of Bklyn Lo thanks to his association with UZOO, a collective based out of Connecticut. While my familiarity with his music is still limited at best, I was instantly captivated by his keen lyricism and aggressive energy. Although the future of UZOO is unknown, it was a welcome surprise to see a new drop from Bklyn come across my timeline. 

On his latest release, Bklyn Lo utilizes Casanova's "Set Trippin" instrumental to lay down some in your face, braggadocious lyrics. Bklyn fills the track with a smooth, rapid paced flow, making full use of the beat. I enjoy the juxtaposition of the emcee's intense delivery against the less aggressive instrumental. 

It's worth noting that, in addition to cooking up music, Bklyn Lo is also v skilled when it comes to shooting and editing videos. He's got other work out there, but I've included the "Double O Flow" visuals at the bottom of this post.

Listen to "Set Trippin (Remix)" and then peep the video Bklyn cooked up for UZOO below.

Raz Simone - "Your Hands" [prod. Antwon Vinson] (Video)

Often times in life, the hardest lessons to learn are the ones that lead to the greatest amount of personal growth and expansion. And, of course, it's always best to learn first hand, through experience, rather than through second hand story telling. Let's be honest, someone can drop knowledge on you time and time again but we, as humans, have a tendency to ignore that wisdom unless the Universe hits us with some personal experience. 
Regardless, on "Your Hands", Raz Simone takes it upon himself to share his experience with anyone willing to listen - not necessarily to benefit the listener, but to put into perspective his D.T.A. (don't trust anyone) mentality. 
Shortly after the release of "Your Hands", Raz tweeted the following: 
"I genuinely don't expect a thing from another person but betrayal. I still keep hope and love for everyone tho. More and more from afar."
While this may come across as a negative, pessimistic attitude, Simone ut…

Ceschi - "Serenading A Brick Wall"

The first time I saw Ceschi perform live was at my friend's art show in 2014. I'll never forget watching this guy sit in - and then stand on - a wooden chair, rocking the fuck out of an acoustic guitar while lacing the music with his thought provoking lyrics. 
I've been fortunate enough to catch the New Haven, CT native perform a number of times since then and each experience leaves my jaw on the floor. Man, as my mind takes a stroll down memory lane, I wish everyone could have seen the rockstar performance in his hometown when Broken Bone Balladswas released in March of 2015. 
When you remove the intense, high energy performances - which seem to always include ample crowd participation and involvement - and the beautiful music, you're left with Ceschi, the human being. Without question, this is one of the most humble artists I have ever had the pleasure of crossing paths with. And Ceschi also has an incredible story, one that includes a B.S. arrest, prison sentence (…
