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.

Don of CashOverClout’s Here This Is For You

One thing Don of CashOverClout is never in short supply of is creativity. From his music to fashion choices the Chicago lyricist keep fans one their toes and is latest display, “Here This Is For You” is a no different.

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.

“Here This Is For You” is yet another CashOverClout/SmartMouf collaboration. Don of CashOverClout’s latest gift to his fans was produced by Ace da Vinci and mixed at Glass Tree Creative.

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.

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.

Maryland rap duo Goonew & Lil Dude are already ascending into rap superstardom and their latest single “Mafia Lifestyle” is only propelling them even further. “Mafia Lifestyle” appears on the pair’s latest project Homicide Boyz 2 and is a fan favorite. Rightfully so, “Mafia Lifestyle” combines gritty lyrics delivered in hushed tones with aggressive production for Spizzle Doe and it is a winning combination.

Goonew & Lil Dude are joined on the track by Keezah. The trio is just enough for mob action and obviously just what fans are looking for.

The visual is quite befitting. It captures images of the rappers delivering lyrics in hallways and on street corners with ominous lighting.
