FamousMF dropped his second project for the year not that long ago. It’s an EP labeled No Feelings. The collective contains ten tracks altogether and no guest appearances. Included on the short album is the previously reviewed “The Wait Is Over.” Famous took on a majority of the production himself as well. Trademark and TooneOnDaBeat do contribute a little something on the producer tip too though. The EP has a dark gritty overall vibe to it and it is packed full of sleek beats and in your face rhymes. Some of the standout cuts from the collective are: “Just Wanna Chill,” “Power,” “Always Faded,” and “No Names Mentioned.” But No Feelings as a whole is consistently dope. Readers definitely need to take a moment and give the effort a play or two.
This isn’t your daddy’s ‘jacking for beats.’ This is more telling a story over three different beats. Ay-Rock is back on the site with his “Trilogy” freestyle. The emcee strategically freestyles over three beats in one. Those beats include: Justin Bieber’s “Sorry,” Big Sean’s “Paradise,” and DJ Khaled‘s “How Many Times.”
DJ YRS Jerzy was introduced to readers last month via a collaboration he did with another artist who is a regular on the site, Malik Ferraud. Readers can get the rundown on it here. The initial post went so well that he was interested in sharing his own individual story with The Illixer and it just so happens that there was an opening for this month’s segment of That’s My DJ. So venture beyond the break to get to know the New Jersey talent a little bit better.
Alas, this week marked the end of season one of Oxygen’s new hit reality series Sisterhood Of Hip Hop. It’s sad to see the ladies go but they went out on a memorable note. Diamond kicked off the top of the finale by sitting down with Nyemiah Supreme and explaining to her why she wouldn’t be participating in the ladies’ showcase. With her new brand comes a new style and she wasn’t quite ready to share it all with the world. Sounds a little suspect but she agreed to come out and support. So that’s a plus. She then went on to make her non-participation up to the ladies by surprising them with an afternoon with her mentor and good friend Eve. This proved to be the icing on the cake as Eve dished out some experienced sisterly advice and the girls got to take it all in. They also extended an invite to their showcase to the raptress and she readily accepted. That’s pretty dope.
