Nina B Throws It Back

The future is female, just ask D1CMG. The music powerhouse acknowledges that girls run the world and introduce their very first female emcee Nina B.

Known as “The Pretty Spitta,” Nina B is making quite the name for herself on the hip hop scene. Her rambunctious personality is apparent in her lyrics and her debut single “Throw It Back” is evidence.

“Throw It Back” is fun and flirty. With all the makings of a twerk anthem, Nina B’s flow makes the song a hit. The uptempo track is the perfect for Nina B and the visual is the icing on the cake.

Filmed by Ryder Visuals, “Throw It Back” opens as a yoga class. The class quickly goes rogue and what should have been a calming experience is exchanged for something that resembles a night at the strip club.

In an era where femcees are getting their due credit, Nina B as the potential to find herself receiving all of her roses. “Throw It Back” is now available on all platforms.

It takes a true wordsmith to intertwine subject matters the way Don did on “Here This Is For You” and frankly, it’s impressive. The song opens with what sounds like a dark, yet relatable admission of loneliness. That’s followed by a combination of typical rap scenarios and valid life lessons.

G. Mitch – Can I

After some time away G. Mitch is back. In theory, G. Mitch’s return could have been accomplished a million and one ways, but in reality “Can I (Freestyle)” was the only way.

By now most r’n’b fans have grown familiar with Kehlani and Tory Lanez’ “Can I”. But now that G. Mitch has gotten a hold of it r’n’b fans are going to need to take another listen.

G. Mitch shortened the song by more than a minute, but time was all he took away from it. “Can I (Freestyle)” is nearly two minutes of racy lyrics, that will set the mood if nothing else. The sexy lyrics paired with G.Mitch’s smooth vocals are a match made for the bedroom.

Mogul Gets Respect

In life it is not uncommon to see people take alternate routes to their goals. D1CMG’s Mogul is no different. The artist turned CEO returned to his creative roots with the release of Still Humble. While Still Humble in its entirety is a vibe, “Respect” sets the tone.

For any creative work the introduction is imperative. “Respect” is evidence that Mogul understands that whole heartedly. The first of seven tracks on Still Humble, “Respect” is Mogul’s state of the union, if you will. In just under three minutes, in no uncertain terms, Mogul reminds anyone and everyone that he is not to be played with.

As his moniker suggests, Mogul is normally all successful business. “Respect” gives most a peak into who Mogul as a man and what’s important to him. Though, short in comparison to his list of accomplishments, “Respect” provides a bit of insight into what’s going on in Mogul’s life.

The vulnerability of “Respect” allows fans to see Mogul in a light that they may have never previously seen. The emphasis on family, personal responsibility, and business is evident.

Still Humble is available on all streaming platforms.

Chloé’s Mad Dog

Few things in life are more upsetting than being sexually frustrated. Chloé so eloquently conveys that sentiment with her latest single “Mad Dog.”

For whatever reason women being openly sexual creatures has been taboo. Even in such a modern society, where there is way more access to sex than there probably should be it’s still raises eyebrows for women to discuss or practice their sexuality freely. Chloé casted caution to the wind and spent more than three minutes ignoring society’s qualms with women discussing sexual topics to deliver “Mad Dog” and it’s worth it.

“Mad Dog” is an ironic combination of perfect vocals, amazing production , and sexually explicit lyrics. The Traydacreator produced track is nothing like anyone would expect. The acoustic introduction prepares listeners for heartfelt lyrics and while women around the world definitely felt the lyrics, it was not in their hearts. Chloé came through to let men know sexual frustration will drive a woman to drink.

“Mad Dog” derives it’s name from a popular fortified wine. The wine is widely known as “Mad Dog 20/20,” however its rightful name is Mogen David.

LLG Siicx

Some artists have a way of drawing inspiration from life experience. LLG Siicx is one of those artists.

Chicago native LoeLyfeGang Siicx has been rapping since he was 13. Despite seeing the hardships of those around him, Siicx fostered his talent, understanding that he has something special. Though it wasn’t until recently that Siicx took his own talent.

In the last two years, Siicx has released four music videos, two of which in the last two weeks. He has also been featured on a number of compilation mixtapes. Siicx is now working to complete his debut mixtape slated to be released at some point this summer.

Don of CashOverClout & Ace da Vinci – Duke Nukem

Westside native Don of CashOverClout joined forces with Ace da Vinci and aged themselves just a bit with “Duke Nukem.”

In yet another CashOverClout/SmartMouf collaboration, Don of CashOverClout and Ace da Vinci float over an Ace da Vinci produced beat on “Duke Nukem.” Named for the video game original released in 1991, “Duke Nukem” is two minutes and 56 seconds of vibes and sounds a little like a video game.

Don of CashOverClout rightfully takes pride in his performance, declaring “lyrically, this one of the hardest songs I ever did.” A hard lyrical performance that was absolutely necessary to be befitting of the Ace da Vinci beat. Don employed a laidback flow that emphasized his lyrics without overpowering the beat.

While Ace da Vinci outdid himself in the way of production, his lyrical performance was notable as well. Ace da Vinci’s flow while completely different from Don’s was equally perfect over the beat, making “Duke Nukem” complete and reiterating that CashOverClout and SmartMouf is always a dope combination.

Chloé – Don’t Fix

Some people always seem to have the best advice for situations that are none of their concern. Chloé teamed up with Joel Q to put those people in their place for her latest release “Don’t Fix.”

Chicago based singer and songwriter, Chloé takes aim at that one person always keeping tabs on a relationship that isn’t their own with “Don’t Fix.” The lyrics reiterate that what may not work for some works for others and it’s no one’s place to judge, no matter how quirky the relationship seems.

Paired perfectly with Joel Q, even more shots are fired at the lonely nosey souls always soliciting their opinions where they’re unwanted. The rapper specifically calls out the single, gold digger struggling to find a relationship of her own and pretending to be satisfied with her situation.

The visual is perfect for the spring time that Chicago is struggling to see. Colorful and creative, filmed in grassy areas “Don’t Fix” is somewhat reminiscent of Alice in Wonderland. Whimsical and fun, Don’t Fix features parasols, bubbles and a kimono clad Chloé singing in a row boat in the grass.

Nique Robinson Says What He Feels

According to Nique Robinson, his new EP Say What You Feel is based on his experiences with love and his perspective on telling the truth.
