Kon Boogie
Believe Or Never Grow

 
 

If you’re looking for a rapper that’s got a fresh perspective on life and uses gritty, boom bap rhythms as his weapon of choice, let me introduce you to Kon Boogie, as he’s got something to say. When the Queens emcee drops bars, you know his intent is clear and to the point; Boogie’s play to win attitude definitely shows in his dedication to his craft.

 

Beginning with the James Brown-esque sounds of the appropriately titled “The Game Needs Me”, Kon does a fantastic job of previewing what we’re about to hear. Though the intro track is upbeat, Boggie uses the next two tracks “I Am” & “The Way You Are” as a means of showing his more serious and caring side; the latter of the two has the emcee speaking on the lustful actions towards a very special female. “Drifting”, one of the standout tracks on the project, begins with some powerful piano pieces and some old school boom bap percussions that complement the tribute to his hometown, while “Hotstepper” features some slick bars and a summertime vibe perfect for those midnight drives.

 

“Ride It”, a track who’s earth shattering instrumentals make this track perfect for the club will have you hitting that repeat button, but the final track, “All I See” doesn’t deserve to go unmentioned. With its calming, mellow vibes and monotone style delivery, the track is a fantastic bookend to a pretty slick project. Give it a listen down below and let us know what y’all think.

Greg Grease – “Forward”

 

 

If you’ve managed to get this far during the week, you probably deserve a break. And what good timing to introduce Greg Grease‘s latest video for “Forward”, a stripped down, less-is-more banger that doesn’t need to be overdramatic to get it’s point across. Directed by Adam Dunn as a part of his #LABB (Lights and a Backdrop) series, the visuals are as minimalistic as it gets, allowing the Grease, his DJ and his turntable to play centre stage. Check it out and be sure to pick up Greg Grease’s Black King Cole EP if you don’t already own it.
