“Welcome” is the 2nd official single leading up to J.Nolan‘s forthcoming project, Rise of ATLantis, which is set to be released on May 18th. This song ties directly into the concept of the project by showing the foundation that’s been set musically & personally since J.Nolan and his family settled in the city of Atlanta when he was 8 years old. From that time, he watched the evolution of southern Hip-Hop while honing his craft. Now, at 29 years old, he’s dead set on showcasing the depth and lyrical substance that many Hip-Hop fans claim to be missing. The video is directed by Rex Novi

 

 

 “Indigo Children” by FreshfromDE is the latest from the Delaware artist, which gives an insight into the qualities of that group of individuals as he collaborates with the larger than life, one-of-a-kind, Boston’s Michael Christmas. “Indigo Children” provides some infectious trap/hip-hop melodies and smooth flows from both artists.

The Everglades Sessions weekly campaign has finally came to an end as MeRCY has brought in the heavy cavalry. “So iLLustrious” features the whole camp including KoJazz, Bishop, see.francis and in-house producer, Solidified.

Rapper/producer Jackson Whalan drops the second single leading up to his to his next album, ‘Millennial Sound’. “Sweet Music” features Jules Jenssen : drummer, producer, visionary, and hometown friend of Jackson. The two have been collaborating since their early teens, growing up in Berkshire County, MA in a crew of young music heads. They co-produced and wrote this track together, which effectively adds to their growing saga of collaborations, like “Home Again” , and “Souled Out…” . There is distinct a sample-based vibe that weaves through all of the hip-hop they have made with each other so far, and its presence is recognized once again in “Sweet Music…”, a song about a character longing for love, yet being on the road and whole-heartedly committed to music and touring. “I Always Wanted to Be In The Band” by Step by Step lays the foundation for this subject matter to percolate, with a call-and-response from the mcee to the sample in the chorus. Jackson draws from his own experience of being “torn in two”, and the process of coming to terms with music being the top priority, a reality that is accompanied by sacrifice and being apart from the one he loves. Inspired by the most classic of hip-hop, with live drums that slap, and verses that churn memories, peep “Sweet Music (feat. Jules Jenssen)”.

Jackson releases his new album, Millennial Sound, on May 18th, 2018.
