Silas drops the first of two new Freestyles stylistically called McPick2. The next will drop tomorrow. This one features Silas flipping up his styles up like it’s no big deal. Track comes complete with that Street Fighter effect. Be sure to check out his critically acclaimed project The Day I Died.
Silas is an emcee/musician who hails from Jackson, MS. He recently dropped his album The Day I Died the follow up to his mixtape Rap Revolt. An musical journey into the evolution of Silas as a person and an artist. The album is thoughtfully put together and riding the wave of the viral sensation “Gullah Gullah Island”, it is sure to make some noise. On the day the album dropped, Silas also released a video for the hit single. The video captures the feel of the track perfectly. Riding the beat produced by Donche, Silas draws a vivid picture of his own personal Gullah Gullah Island.
“Where they couldn’t bring crack to the hood, cause there ain’t no hood. Tyrone and Keisha doing pretty damn good. All the kids wearing hoodies, coming from the back of the 7/11 with a bag full of goodies. Skittles with a can of Arizona on deck, from a black owned store cause we mobbin’ like that”
So click the video above and let Silas transport you to his utopia. Then click below and pick up the album. Reject Regular Rap.

You would be hard pressed to find another state in the republic that is as musically sound as Mississippi. The birthplace of America’s music has produced some undeniable talent. The city of Jackson alone is home to more than a few capable emcees. Per capita I would put the Jack against any other city in the category, the only challenge would probably come from Detroit. Which is another debate all together.
Enter Silas, an up and coming rapper/trumpeter from the Fondren area of Jackson, and no that is not a typo, I said trumpeter. Rap Revolt is Silas’ introduction to a lot of people, and it is a hellova first impression. He runs the gambit when it comes to styles. He tackles every type of sound you could imagine to hear and he does it with style and grace. He effortlessly bounces between tracks, flowing fluidly over tracks pieced together masterfully. If this is his rapping resume, then he’s getting the job. He breaks down a lot on “For The Fans”, explaining what separates Jackson from cities like Detroit, San Francisco, Philly, and New York and why the city does not get the shine it should in the rap game. Then on tracks like “Warm Up Mix” featuring Core DJ Jonasty Silas firmly places his Hip-Hop flag on the steps of the Capital and dares rappers to step up. “Red Velvet Cake” is his stab at the often used “Pound Cake” beat, showing that he can spit over hit tracks just as well as the originals. Then he jumps on Biggie’s “Everday Struggle” and “Shook Ones II” by Mobb Deep, showing his understanding of rap history. Like I said this is one heck of a resume. You do not have to listen to me though, download it for free below and listen for yourself.
Then come back and tell me I was right, cause I am. Peace
Silas markets himself as the hip-hop trumpeter and hails from Jackson, MS. He has also thrown his hat into the ring as “The best in the Jack”. A brave statement indeed, but hip-hop was built partially by egotistical emcees. Silas will be dropping his project Rap Revolt on June 10th. I do not have a lot of information on him at the moment, but I certainly will by the time the album drops. Be sure to check back for more information.
