Bahamadia innovates the culture on Dialed Up 2 (Full Stream) • Word Is Bond

 Although Bahamadia gets love from core hip-hop fans, I still feel she never got the much needed shine she deserves. Lyrically one of the brightest emcees to come out of the 90s during the reign of Lil Kim, Foxy Brown etc, she set the pace with her classic debut “Kollage” and has gone on to work with big names such as The Roots, the late Guru, Talib Kweli and Erykah Badu,

Today she is stepping back to the forefront not only as an highly rated emcee but also as a producer as she presents to “Dialed Up 2” which is a direct sequel to her 2013 release of the same name. Follows the same theme of the first edition with her crafting ALL the beats on her phone and calling up hiphop luminaries such as Camp Lo’s Geechi Suede, Zion I, Kev Brown, Prozack Turner, Fat Nice, Groove Da Moast, Rasco and Dave Ghetto for that solid combination of organic beats and raw rhymes.

Dialed Up 2 is now available for stream, exclusively through Bandcamp, courtesy of her own label, B-Girl Records!

NXPPYHEAD wants a Million Dollars and more. • Word Is Bond

NxppyHead is an 18 year old rapper and producer bubbling up out of Miami FL. If I go by this sound pumping out of the speakers, this is a serious breath of fresh air for the music scene. Of course this sounds a lot like what you would basically hear from the Native Tongues collective but for this era in hip hop this is definitely a new and is quite welcomed. Hopefully, this is a style that NxppyHead continually churns out and he is not swayed by the idea of doing the popular sound but going against the grain to present his own sound and style to the world. And just to add, NxppyHead wants that Million Dollars and all that comes with it just like everyone else. We all want the finer things in life most definitely just not at the expense of our souls. You will love this jazzy feel to the hop I can bet.

Rheymophoebus is mushy over Zikora His daughter • Word Is Bond

Nigerian emcee Rheymophoebus has decided to get back in the studio and work on an actual sophomore project. This is coming on the heels of his freestyles after his long hiatus from the music scene. The first single from the soon-to-be-released body of work is Zikora which is basically his ode to his daughter whom the song is named after. I guess this is a challenge to all fathers to be role models and present factors to their seeds. Rheymophoebus is basically declaring his love for his daughter all through the song and I guess this somewhat shows the protective nature of dads over their children especially the daughters. All fathers make sure you hold your daughters while you play this.
