Raw Elementz More sounds from outside NBA Street Vol 2

Written by Leo J

It’s 4/20 today so for all of you out there that like to indulge in the smoke sessions I have something special to share with you today. A super banger and vibe out tune/video from Raw Elementz titled “NBA Street Vol 2“. The single is from his “More Sounds From Outside” EP that dropped December of 2015. The video kicks off with some kids playing video games along with a shot of another kid riding a bike around the neighborhood. Some classic shit for anyone who grew up that way (damn near everyone you and I know). A soulful 70s feeling beat is looped in the background that leads into a classic Raw Elementz rap verse with fire bars and lyricism. The video jumps around on some summer shit as a youth that I know I can relate to. Basketball, video games, BMX’s. slurpees, and kicking it with friends. The video and track are super clean and to be quite honest, nothing short of what we already know and expect to get from Raw Elementz. Excellence. Be sure to follow him on social media through the links below and peep the video. Let us know what you think. Peace.

AV The Great Denton Dallas Hip Hop

Written by Leo J

Life has a funny way of weaving people in and out of our lives over time. And for people within the music industry, the spotlight feels greater with these instances. It’s a fine line of managing relationships and knowing when not to pursue unhealthy ones. I think that goes for life in general. But as many rappers, producers, DJs, promoters, and venues can attest to,  it’s something a ton of people experience within any vibrant music scene. I think that the head games that many artists struggle with inspire them to write music that reflects their inner thoughts and feelings. A lot of that could be said about todays video we are sharing from AV The Great titled “Stay“. It is produced by and features Tone Jonez. The track itself speaks on some hardships AV The Great has gone through, industry struggles, and a reflection on some of his past life choices. It’s an honest look and approach to the mindset of AV The Great which is something I can appreciate, and wish more artists would do. The production fits well and keeps the heartfelt energy moving along with solid vocals from featured artist Tone Jonez. Be sure to hit the social media links below and follow AV The Great on social media and peep the video.

Side Note: We’ve added the latest banger collabo with AV The Great and Smitty after the video.

Dallas Hip Hop JVNLS

Written by Leo J

When you look at the landscape of DFW rap you’ll hear a ton of different influences and sounds with the music being put out. From “rage rap” to “boom bap”, there’s a wide range of music for Dallas hip hop fans to choose from. As a person that favors diverse sounds and approaches, I thoroughly enjoy the atmosphere our city provides. Last week hip hop trio JVNLS released a single titled “24 Hours” featuring Dandii Sun and produced by Ruminari. The track has some super soothing vibes. Everyone who hit this track did the damn thing. I appreciate the approach everyone took on this single doing something different than what others are right now. I’ll admit that I wasn’t on what JVNLS (pronounced Juveniles) have been up to before the release of this track, but I promise you that won’t be the case form here on out. Peep the track and social media links below.

Kaos Caine Wait Dallas texas

Written By Leo J

Nothing better than opening up our emails and finding some super dope fresh music to share with you all. Today that comes in the form of Kaos Caine‘s new video “Wait”. It’s hist first single from his upcoming debut album ‘Gone For Good‘ set to release at a later date in 2016. The song is produced by Campion Bond and directed by LaReign Storm. Everything about this video and single feels right. Visually, the video is great. It matches the seductive nature of the track along with enough cuts to keep it moving and look fresh. Sonically, the single is super on point as well. Plenty of clarity with enough in there to be a hit. I’ve been a big fan of everything Kurvature Multimedia Group has been putting out so really it’s nothing surprising. You can always expect to get top quality production, visuals and artists from these guys. “Wait” from Kaos Caine is no different. Peep the video below and be sure to hit the web links to keep up with Kaos Caine. Peace.

Krum Dallas Hip Hop Rob Viktum

Written by Leo J

 Soulful hip hop bangers. You know you love them. There’s nothing like a solid kick drum and snare combo to make you snap your neck and bring out your inner bitter beer face. We all got one. Be prepared to get yours ready because today I’m sharing a new video and single from Krum & Rob Viktum‘s Bare Knuckle Gospel titled “Abraham’s Nephew’s Wife”. Now if the name Krum sounds a bit unfamiliar that’s because he formally went by the artist name Playdough, whom we have covered multiple times on here. Super dope MC and one of our favorite acts out of Dallas. Rob Viktum on the other hand, whom we have also covered multiple projects on here, brings his familiar sampling sounds to the table again and keeps his consistent roll of absolutely filthy production to compliment the MC. In addition to the production, Rob Viktum pulls double duty as he directed and edited this video as well. What can this man not do??

These guys are 2 heavyweights in the rap and production game of hip hop. The loosie preview tracks thy have released have been super on point and a natural fit for both of them. Bare Knuckle Gospel is set to release on April 28th for FREE via Rappers I Know. Peep the video and another single released a month ago titled “Emily Morgan” from the project below. Peace.

Curtis Mayz

Written by Leo J

New music from southern rap artist Curtis Mayz featuring Paris P has just been released. The track is titled “Bless My Heart” and is produced by Drugs the Model Citizen. Curtis Mayz debuts this track coming off his Black Excellence LP that has been doing well since it’s release back in November of 2015. If you’ve never heard a track from Curtis Mayz the first thing you will notice is his unique voice and stylings that bleed Texas raps. It’s a dope flow that has it’s own cadence and sound that makes him stand out. The pairing of Paris P makes perfect sense as he’s another artist from DFW who’s voice and flow makes him one of the best around. The track is super quick but there is a lot in there coming just short of two and a half minutes. Be sure to peep the track below, follow these artists on social media and let us know what you think.

Dandii Sun – “Karrueche Tran” shot by @DONTHYPEME – Fresh Video

Dandii Sun

Written by Leo J

What’s good peoples? It’s March of 2016 and the DFW metroplex continues to put out quality music like always. I won’t scatter brain off into some other ishh like I usually do so lets just get to the greatness. I’m here to share a super fresh new video from Arlington’s own Dandii Sun titled “Karrueche Tran“. I’ve been a fan of Dandii Sun for a minute now but I had not checked in on anything he’d done recently. After peeping this video and track it is absolutely something I’ll never do again. One of my favorite jams of his is a song titled “Flamingo Sandwhich” from the “Black Sun Love” LP. I play that song regularly in my mixes at Fresh Rhymes. Super good project and I encourage everyone to check it out. But lets get back to the video. The track “Karrueche Tran” has been out for 7 months but Dandii Sun treats us with a visual to pair with it that brings it back to life. The track is hella dope and is probably my new favorite track of his. The video does a good job showing the struggle Dandii Sun express throughout the song with a former relationship he is getting over. This isn’t your “love letter” hip hop song on some I want you back shit. It’s defiantly emotional and shows how crazy we can get on some hurtful break up shit. I’d say that every guy has gone through at least once and Dandii Sun does a great job expressing this through his raps. There’s a lot of emotion in there that sells it. The video is simple in nature but does exactly what it needs to and gets the point across. I’ll be sure to keep in tune to everything this young man has coming out moving forward. You should to. Peep the visual for “Karrueche Tran” below and follow Dandii Sun on social media accounts, peace.

Dice Pruitt – “Welcome Me” – Fresh Video

Dice Pruitt

Written by Leo J

It’s always dope to hear some new music. It’s even doper when you hear an artist take on a new approach to what either traditional or pop hip hop sounds like. It makes it unique and original to that particular artist. Enter Plainview,Tx’s Dice Pruitt. He’s the newest artist to Erotic-D’s E-World Entertainment who just released a new visual titled, “Welcome Me“. The video and song is an introduction of sorts to Dice Pruitt. The track kicks off with a dope intro of anticipation between the beat to drop along with Dice Pruitt spitting some pretty clever lines. The beat kicks in and it’s not the traditional sound of hip hop one might be used to, whatever that may be.  An uptempo pace is introduced with a snare that pairs well with Dice Pruitt‘s flow. It all leads up to a witty and playful chorus that switches up to a bass heavy 2nd verse. It’s put together really well and continues this structure for the rest of the track. The production is super on point and makes the track/lyrics stand out even more. Overall a really solid track and I can’t wait to hear what E-World Entertainment and Dice Pruitt cook up. Peep the video below and be sure to let us know what you think over on twitter at @TooFreshDTX.

Mozez Tha Great

Written by Leo J

I love Dallas. I’d say that 99% of people that live here do too. From transplants to people that have lived here for years, there’s a lot going for this town to fall in love with. I’m sure the same could be said for anyone in any other city but who cares about that mess. It’s triple D all day, right? With that said, fans of Dallas and hip hop are in a treat today as we premiere the music video for Mozez Tha Great titled “For The City” directed by Ovid Media.

The video is shot in black in white with some really dope artwork from graphic designer Romio No E. The dope visual shots mixed in with these graphics compliment each other well to what Mozez Tha Great speaks on throughout the track. The track itself is light in tones with a rolling 808 that carries with the lyrics. It’s easy to here and see that Mozez Tha Great feels special about being form Dallas and the influence it has had on him. I think a lot of people can relate to this track given our own personal feelings for what Dallas has offered us. “For The City” feels like the proper love letter track that every city deservesBe sure to peep the video below and hit the links below the video to follow Mozez Tha Great on social Media.

Dallas Producer Sikwitit is headed to LA for Producer Charity Event

SIkwitit Promo Pic 39

Written by Leo J

About 3yrs ago I decided to start a producer beat battle in Dallas. I had just wrapped up “We From Dallas” and through my research of the film, it was clear to me that our city had a long lineage and history of amazing producers in the DFW metroplex. I wanted to showcase some of the dope producers I knew were working hard. In the time since the beat battles have started, we’ve had over 150 producers from around the Southwest come in and rock with us. We’ve seen the producers of North Texas grow into an amazing community in that time. Out of all the producers one that I am most proud to have helped introduce to the Dallas producer community, is Sikwitit.

Sikwitit

I had gotten a submission email from him with a youtube link of Sikwitit recreating beats in the middle of 6th street in Austin during SXSW. He was absolutely killing it. The music he sent over for his submission was dope as well but no one was ready for the onslaught of beats he was about to lay on our ears that night he competed. It was clear that this guy was something absolutely special and had his craft down to a tee. Fast forward to February 2016 and Sikwitit is preparing for his biggest beat battle yet. The charity event will be held on March 9th in LA titled, Water Battle. It is being produced by iStandard and Focus to help raise money and awareness for those in need of access to clean water around the globe. It features beat makers from all over the country split up into two teams, Team iStandard and Team 3dots. Team iStandard is represented by producers who have proven themselves through various iStandard showcases and battles throughout the country while Team 3dots features very familiar industry names who are proven hitmakers.

Sikwitit

Sikwitit will be the only Dallas producer on the line up on this night which in itself, is super special. His last solo beat battle was in Dallas at Fresh Beats in April of 2014. His last showcase competition had him beat out 100’s of producers as the winner of the iStandard Beasts of the Beats showcase in November of 2014 in NYC. When we asked him why so long on the break of doing battles, Sikwitit said “I love beat battles but I stopped doing them cause I was ready for the next faze of my career which was placing records. When I found out about this though, there was no way I could pass it up. The platform is huge for me plus its for a great cause, I had to come out of retirement haha!” With this big of a stage it makes sense for him to do so. Who wouldn’t want to be one of the best against the best? When asked about being the only producer from Dallas, Siwitit said “It feels good to be able to represent Dallas the way I do. I feel I have a very unique platform and not a lot of people get these opportunities so I want to do my best and make them count all while hopefully being an inspiration to my fans and this awesome city.

Sikwitit

We also asked about his feeling towards iStandard and what they have been able to do for him as a producer, as well as others. Sikwitit said “I’m honored to be affiliated with an organization like iStandard. They are always doing things differently, creating a huge platform and always looking out for the producers first.” And that they have. iStandard has been holding Beat Camps, showcases, conferences, and battles across the country. They also have a great relationship with hardware/software companies that support producers globally which allows iStandard to make these DAWS and equipment available for producers to succeed. With that said the stage is set and the deadline is coming. Soon Sikwitit‘s sounds will be playing for some of the best producers in the industry for a great cause. As the date gets closer, we asked him how he feels about it all. Sikwitit said “Im doing two things I love, music & giving! It gets no better than that“. We can dig that. Be sure to peep some of his latest music below, and if you have a moment to donate to this wonderful cause/charity event, you can click here.
