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.

Chanelle Tru’s Ha|Ve

 

Chanelle Tru celebrated International Women’s Day in a rather unique way. On March 8, the Chicago based artist debuted her album Ha|Ve.

Ha|Ve reminds the world that Chanelle Tru is so much more than a pretty face. The multitalented singer, rapper, songwriter, dancer and actress flexed quiet a few creative muscle on her highly anticipated new album. Despite the fact that she could have probably done it all on her own, Chanelle Tru does share the creative spotlight just a bit on Ha|Ve. The Other Eric, Cosha TG, and Sprado lent their talents to the 15 track effort.

Ha|Ve or “Hate to Love” delivers a little more than 45 minutes of tales for those who have gained or lost love.

 

 

Chimeka is Above P.A.R.

It’s inevitable that when Chimeka speaks the city listens. An artist whose name has grown to be synonymous with hip hop in Chicago, Chimeka has undoubtedly earned her stripes. While she has earned her stripes there are quite a few artist who haven’t and she addresses them on her latest single “Above P.A.R.”

Spawning from her December release Crazy, “Above P.A.R.” is a no bars held address directed at all the rappers who are all rap and no heart. P.A.R. is an acronym for Poor Ass Rappers. A reminder of exactly why when Chimeka speaks the world should listen, “Above P.A.R.” is Chimeka at her lyrical best.

The attack on rappers who don’t live up to their hype or the hype they think they deserve certainly shouldn’t be a surprise coming from Chimeka. The outspoken entertainer has personality for days and the talent to back up any claims she makes. The “Above P.A.R.” video directed by Lakeshorehy is evident of both.

The “Above P.A.R.” visual debuted on March 7 at Don’t Do Coke’s Pizza And A Movie 2 event. The visual, while simple, exemplifies exactly why fans love Chimeka. The entertainer’s personality takes the forefront in the dominating performance scenes. Undoubtedly amusing, the video doesn’t overshadow the song and every shot fired was landed and fatal for substandard rappers.

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.
