Sunny Woodz and Clark Airlines Release Pink Gorilla

It is undisputed that Sunny Woodz works hard. The same goes for Clark Airlines. When that kind of work ethic gets mixed with their unlimited creativity the result is Pink Gorilla.No, not weed, a mixtape.

Today Sunny Woodz and Clark Airlines debuted their joint mixtape Pink Gorilla. Nothing is impossible between Sunny Woodz and Clark Airlines and Pink Gorilla is the affirmation that no one was looking for but everyone needed.

Pink Gorilla is nine tracks of versatility and talent. Creative beats laid the foundation for inevitable hits of relatable natures. “Pissed Off” features The Messiah and its a situation everyone has experienced at one time or another. When things just aren’t working in your favor, “Pissed Off” is proof that no one wins 100 percent of the time. “Sexy Lame” is for every attractive woman who may not necessarily be the most popular. It’s theme music for the pretty girls; no beat face, plastic surgery or validation necessary.

Arguably much to short, Pink Gorilla falls just short of the 25 minute mark. Fans could use another 25 minutes of Sunny Woodz and Clark Airlines, but for now this will have to do.

Dev Walker – Wait A Dev Minute

Nearly two years after his last project, Dev Walker debuts Wait A Dev Minute.

Wait A Dev Minute is a nine of Dev’s personal remixes. The rapper, singer and songwriter put his spin on some of hip hop and rnb’s most popular songs and the result is staggering.

What was originally intended to be a compilation of one minute covers somehow grew into more than 15 minutes of some of Dev’s best lyricism and vocal work to date. Though a bit different from the original vision Wait A Dev Minute is still short. Despite being short Wait A Dev Minute features no short supply of the artist’s creativity. Dev uses a combination of singing and rapping to set himself apart from the artist who created the original works and fans are sure to be appreciative.

Hardly categorized as a singer or rapper, Dev Walker is certainly an entertainer and Wait A Dev Minute is evident of that. Nestled somewhere between lyrical effectiveness and vocal hypnosis, Wait A Dev Minute reestablishes Dev Walker’s versatility.

The Messiah has Passion

There is much to be said about someone who pursues their passion no matter where it takes them. Which means there is much to said about The Messiah. Passion is something he knows quite a bit about and today he released the visual for his single bearing the same name.

The introduction for The Messiah’s latest mixtape Mo Mo, “Passion” is an ode to his career. Rapping since he was 12, The Messiah made a career choice and an early age. “Passion” reiterates the difference between the Messiah and many other rappers.

The Messiah proclaims his love and dedication to music with “Passion,” as well as his disapproval for entertainers who make music for the fame. It’s easy to understand why The Messiah would be offended by rappers who don’t take the craft seriously. “I’m damn near living my dream,” admits the rapper.

More than a decade, hundreds of songs, and millions of streams later The Messiah is still passionate about his craft.

Sunny Woodz’s No CellPhone Party

After attending a number of parties where his cell phone could not attend, Sunny Woodz created a soundtrack for that very occasion. Today, Sunny Wood debuted his new mixtape No CellPhone Party.

In typical Sunny Woodz fashion No CellPhone Party is a vibe. The features resembles a list of who’s who in Chicago’s music scene and rightfully so. The name Sunny Woodz has grown synonymous with hard work and good music, so it’s only fair that he works with the best. Twista, Chimeka, Illi, and Supa Bwe are among the features, but that’s truly the tip of the iceberg.

The 13 track mixtape is a creative combination of turn up songs like “Ready” with Bandland Zz and smooth songs to ride to like “Time” with Chloé. No CellPhone Party is versatile and undoubtedly has something for rappers, trappers and the pretty girls they attract.

For anyone who attended the No CellPhone Party party, there are still many surprises to be heard as Sunny Woodz refuses to be finished with a project until it is released.
