The Black Hole Demo

Indiana native James Otha is an artist to look out for. The artist and producer with an eclectic sound and flow is stealing the attention of hip hop fans and rightfully so.

The self proclaimed nerd and comic book junkie has a knack for word play that seems to be a rarity in a sea of mumble rappers. Though, he raps, James Otha is a fan of jazz, soul and the blues and he appreciation for the music is evident. Often infused in his own music are the influences of other genres.

James Otha debuted his latest project The Black Hole Demo last week. The seven track effort is riddled with witty lyrics and super hero references and colorful combinations of hip hop and other genres. Predominantly used to put James Otha’s talent in the spotlight, The Black Hole Demo only features three other artists: Ridley Victoria, The R.A.M. and Dre Dys.

Check it out:

Corey Ether Gets Petty

Just last week singer/songwriter, rapper and producer Corey Ether debuted the visual for his latest single “Petty.” An ode to childish and outright outlandish behavior, “Petty” is certainly unique.

A joint effort from Corey Ether, UKnowCoby and KelzFreeAgent, “Petty” is more than four and a half minutes of documented bad behavior. The song was produced by Corey Ether and may very well be proof that while talented Corey Ether could use a lesson in moral behavior.

DJ Frankie French – Africa

Producer and DJ Frankie French teamed up with Two Gully and YDot GDot for his latest release entitled “Africa.”

A three headed monster based in Chicago, DJ Frankie French, Two Gully and YDot GDot are quite the combination. An ode of sorts to black girls, “Africa” is just more than two minutes of fun. As if being a black woman isn’t already lit leave if up to DJ Frankie French to make theme song for them.

Listen to Africa now.

Derrick Donaldson Doesn’t Want To Dance

According to Derrick Donaldson’s Facebook biography he’s a husband, musician, songwriter, producer, Jesus’s homeboy and a lover of burgers. While that covers a lot, it doesn’t mention the fact that he one of Chicago’s up and coming neo-soul artists and he’s got a sound all his own.

In a time where it seems hip hop and RnB is ruling the city, Chicago based musician Derrick Donaldson is certainly standing out in the crowd. His debut single “I Don’t Wanna Dance” is evident of not only is individuality, but his talent as well.

Listen to I Don’t Wanna Dance now.

Ike Sav – Just Friends

In anticipation of his upcoming EP, singer/songwriter Ike Sav debuted his later single "Just Friends".

The talented Chicagoan appears to have a knack for love songs and "Just Friends" is now different. The tale of failed lovers turned friends starts with and acoustic vibe that later gives way to a bass heavy rhythm moving vigorously between pop and hip hop sounds.
