breakbeatsand808s Over the last few months, I listened to a lot of new southern trap music, which is heavily influenced by the works of artists like the $uicideboy$, Ghostmane, Xavier Wulff, Fat Nick and Pouya. The latter released a project called "Underground Underdog", to which I listened to last week. I was very excited for the album 'cause I've been listening to "Terminal Sex" (his dopest song in my opinion) for the last month on a daily basis. The mixture of singing and rapping (he handles both duties very well), seemed very intriguing ... ... but his latest project, which was already released in April, really deflated my hopes this week. I liked the album. The production by "Getter" was great. The problem is, that it just isn't special. There were some unnecessary fillers, which could have been avoided. What the heck was "Badonk" feat. Ying Yang Twins??? Although Pouya gives us an interesting mix of flow changes and some vocal performances, the project doesn't sound that coherent and structured. The features aren't really improving the tape either. I like the @suicideboys6 feature. (These guys never fail and just always deliver) Pouya got potential, which he already showed a lot of times. Next time I would just hope for a grimier and more conceptual project. @pouya Rating:60/100 Favourite tracks: Great Influence, But Wait, There's More, Hunnit Hunnit #pouya #undergroundunderdog #trap #hiphop #review #suicideboys

breakbeatsand808s New article out now on Breakbeatsand808s.com Link in Bio. In the first part of this article I discuss the development of lyric based/conscious rap (Most notable at the East- and West coast) My focal point is the development and change of the message, which the rappers want to convey to the listeners, over the last 25 years. Hope you enjoy. #article #rap #message #hiphop #eastcoast #westcoast #blog

breakbeatsand808s "Late Knight Special" by @kirkknight It was already released in 2015, but i first listened to it one week ago. I knew that Kirk Knight is a great producer, but i didn't know that the pro era member can also succeed as a MC. Gotta say that I love his new project. As I already expected, the production is on point. Just so wavy and mellow. Kirk also adds this "newyorkian" touch, which I really love. Hands up, he's one of the best boom bam beat producers. His flow needs improvement at some points. But he just covers these small deficits with his musicality and lyrical performance. The project begins slow and a little bit boring. But the tracks after that really bang. Kirk Knight really picked perfect features. I really was a fan of the guest appearances of @mickjenkins @themindmusic (my favourite new gen r'n'b artist) and @joeybadass. All in all, you should definitely give Kirk Knights debut album a listen. @kirkknight really has a bright future in front of him, if he continues to create great music. Rating: 80/100 Favourite tracks: Knight Time, One Knight feat.The Mind, I Know feat. Mick Jenkins, The Future feat. The Mind #kirkknight #review #article #hiphop #lateknoghtspecial #newyorkhiphop

breakbeatsand808s While I'm still waiting for @atlantafx, I listened to @childishgambino 's latest project called "Awaken, My Love". If you expected a Gambino hip hop Album, you won't be satisfied by this project. Why...? Because it's a mixture of funk and soul, he combines on these 11 tracks. But don't worry. It's a full success. Childish Gambino is just so talented and proves it with ""Awaken, My Love". The production is just on point and Gambino perfectly adapts the vocals and his own lyrics to the atmosphere created by this excellent production. You should definitely check it out. It's just so smooth and coherent. Some tracks like "Boogieman" and "Redbone" are very funky and remind me of 80's disco joints. Other tracks like "Baby Boy" and "Me And Your Mama" are more soulful and emotional. It's worth a listen. Enjoy it. #Shoutout to @childishgambino Rating: 80/100 Favourite tracks: Boogieman, Redbone, Have Some Love #ChildishGambino #awakenmylove #donaldglover #review #funk

breakbeatsand808s Shoutout to @nileross for releasing one of the dopest tracks of the year. "On The Road" by Nile Ross is just so honest and is by far my favourite track out of his latest project "The Lotus Effect". Check it out on @hotnewhiphop . A website, which early helped Nile releasing his dope mixtapes. You should also definitely check out his other project like "Year Of Th3 V" and "Xie-Xie". Great guy. Developed great. Improves every time, he drops a mixtape. He gonna be big in the next few years. Victory After Victory #VAV #hotnewhiphop #nileross #thelotuseffect #ontheroad #hiphop
nileross Thank you man this means a lot

breakbeatsand808s "Hip Hop Evolution" was created in 2016 and is now on Netflix. "Hip Hop Evolution", hands down, is one of the best hip hop documentaries I've ever seen!!! It's a must view for every hip hop geek. The documentary features interviews by Grandmaster Flash, Afrika Bambaata and several other influential DJ's and MC'S. It's just so detailed and informative. But the documtenary still keeps it's own style and is very refreshing in my opinion. Furthermore, host @shadkmusic creates a very personal feeling with the audience by adding own anecdotes and conducting the several interviews very well. Great project!!! #shoutout to the creators of "Hip Hop Evolution" and @shadkmusic . #documentary #hiphop #oldschool #netflix #hiphopevolution
