Now that the site has a pretty good feel for what Drama can do with traditional style music, he decided to show off his freestyle skills. He sent over the video for his freestyle to the popular old school Mobb Deep track “Shook Ones (Part II).” The original beat is retained throughout as Drama goes in for almost two minutes straight. He distributes a well grounded flow, clever wordplay, and satisfactory rhymes. He does a kosher job of holding his own against the classic instrumental.

Darling Bonnie is a female artist on the rise from Oakland, California. She got her start in music in the 2000’s via mentoring from a fellow Bay Area act. She began releasing material in 2012 and has come to develop quite the name for herself. She is praised for her strong lyrical ability and one of a kind stage presence. Which she has put to good use opening up for mainstream talents such as: Mobb Deep, Pusha T, E-40, Eve and many more. What makes her standout from the bunch though is her urban luxury brand. She is known for having a knack for the finer things in life which is made evident in the classy upscale theme she embodies along with her appreciation for: high fashion, art, and culture. So not the typical profile of a Hip-Hop artist at all. But she owns the title when she steps up to the mic. Her ultimate goal is to become a true phenomenon in the entertainment industry. Currently, she is pushing a single called “Lovestory.” She invited The Illixer to have a listen and share the track with readers. Find out more about the song after the break.

“Love Or Hip Hop” (watch here)

Sisterhood of Hip Hop kicked off this week with Diamond, Siya, and Bia discussing the events  that took place in the previous episode at Tammany Hall. Diamond continued her vendetta against Nyemiah Supreme as apparently she felt her dancers were a bit too much. On the other hand, all of the ladies seemed to enjoy Brianna Perry‘s set despite the fact that everything that could’ve gone wrong for the Miami talent did. And of course Siya once again found herself in the hot seat due to her blow up with her boo Renaye. She revealed that she never went back to her place after the show but opted for a hotel instead out of fear that her fight with her Cali lover would get even more out of control. Y’all know Renaye was not happy about that. But Diamond had the answer. Her prayer alarm went off during the ladies’ outing and she decided to use the moment to pray for Siya to find  the strength to deal with her relationship woes. She might just have some redeemable qualities after all.
