See Pop music can be good. Emeli Sande is an up and coming star in the music industry. He’s been co-signed by a slew of people, that matters more than ever these days. She can sing her butt off and she makes sincere music. Our Version Of Events is an amazing album and if this is any indicator, Who Needs The World, her forth coming album will be just as good. “Untouchable” featuring Ryan Michael, who is another rising singer/song writer, is what a pop song should be. Grand yet intimate, a memorable hook and self empowering in a way that would make Bey proud.
In the rap industry, getting signed to a label used to mean something. Now it only means……well it doesn’t mean anything usually since Rap labels are dying left and right (See Bad Boy Records). That being said, when a rapper such as Rapper Big Pooh (Little Brother) gets signed to a label like Mello Music Group, the real MMG, it’s best to take notice. MMG has been doing some brilliant things in the world of Hip-Hop and putting out some very solid efforts from incredibly talents artists. Adding Pooh to the label is strong move which should pay off for both parties in a very short amount of time. Rapper Big Pooh, is known for a tireless work ethic and this is something I believe most MMG artists all share in common with the North Carolina emcee. I’m looking forward to him working with Gensu Dean, 7even:Thirty, Oddisee, and…well the entire camp really. He’s collaborated with several of them through out his career and the results have been received well. Below check out his effort with Duke Westlake and Stik Figa from Mandela Vol. 2: Today’s Mathematics. Word is that this summer we can expect a project between Pooh and Nottz that will be made available for free dollars and zero cents. Then an official MMG album will follow that with assistance from the Mello Music camp. Congratulations to everyone involved, looking forward to hearing some great music in the future.
Please any and all rappers, wanna-be rappers, and friends of rappers listen to this on repeat today. If you aspire to pick up a microphone and continue I believe wholeheartedly you should listen to this track and adhere to the message given from the Grandfather of Rap. Gil released Spirits in 1994, his first project in over ten years, to show that not only does he still have it but his “IT” is better than most others’ it. It has been written that the power of life and death resides in the tongue. Who do you speak into existence. You are accountable for the filth you spew forth from your pie holes.
