DiamondInTheRuff

I suspect I had an immediate affinity for artist Freeway as we were born in the same year, we both have an infatuation with notorious drug trafficker “Freeway” Rick Ross (from whom Freeway’s rap moniker was derived) and I, too, once lost a freestyle battle hosted by Swiss Beatz by unanimous judges’ decision to Cassidy. Perhaps that last item is a lie; the freestyle battle I lost to Cassidy was totally unmoderated. In any case, when it comes to music reviews, I must be disregard these facts, being an honest broker between the music and the people. It turns out I still have an affinity for Freeway, and for his fourth studio album, Diamond In the Ruff, which dropped on Babygrande Records one beautiful day this past November. Hit the jump to read the full review – Spotify album stream included.

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.
