RhymSter Matches 4 Songs For 4 Artists!

A young underground mogul, RhymSter is connected with the some of best artists, beat makers, producers, DJ’s, collectives and labels Chicago can offer. Working in the background and the fore front of music, from performing to coordinating the events, to spittin’ freestyles and making beats from scratch at Ever Evolved Studios. Always one to get involved with others as well, as his last release brings out four talented hip hop artists on his EP titled 4 FOR 4. This project follows his single PRODUCT OF ME and EP HEAVEN FOR ROSES.

Every track has an artist that can bring the most raw verses you can hear, no holds bars! Cannot mention heavy bars without naming Mike Booth, a photographer with unstoppable freestyle flow, explaining on the track CONSEQUENCES, “This lifestyle comes with consequences, either you on the court or on the benches.” That just being the chorus, a hard lesson; his verses always come unfiltered, and his next verses show you just that. Rhymster chimes in with hunger, “I’m that young man heading for the Forbes on that top list, the keys only open for me, I’ll challenge any locksmith.”

From there you already know this project is going to hit. One track with BeatrixKiddo takes on a lo-fi vibe on the beat. Starting with a sample from Rodney Dangerfield‘s stand up on LIL DIFFERENT, the creativity on production with this project is quite noteworthy by JAKETHESNAKE. Each track presents something different, and with Italo, he adds a touch of R&B to the project in POP UP. Finally to complete 4 FOR 4, Greediphresh comes in to match some bars on the fourth track! TELL ME brings it all out, as RhymSter brings his toughest verses with Greedi’s signature raw style and heavy voice, over a haunting beat. An EP to have on every hip hop playlist with the bass way up!

Wilhelm Duke Challenges & Entertains with Conceptual Tracks

Originally from Omaha, Nebraska, Wilhelm Duke now resides in Chicago where he pursues hip hop independently. Starting off first making moves as a duo with another artist, he eventually disbanded to expand on his solo work. A talented artist and an innovator, with lightning fast lyricism, deep philosophies and a motivation to empower his local collective of artists. Not only pursuing music, Duke dips into journalistic writing and videographic cypher episodes, highlighting talented hip hop artists.

As if he does not write enough here on Ever Evolved as a music journalist, he adds even more to his political journal online, and gets insanely creative with how much words he can fit into a song. Does not seem to stress him as though these thoughts run though his head on a regular; his philosophical ideology may also point to the concepts in his music. With two recent releases, he conceptualizes his music as it would be on the radio, and in another track he raps about the divine feminine, independent women of the world. The radio concept is appropriately titled POP FLOW and the feminine track, Y.D.N.A.M.

POP FLOW is more relaxed lyrically compared to his other tracks, notably in his latest LP THE ROBBER BARON, and tracks like WANT SMOKE. Perhaps done purposely, as radio plays are simplistic in style and lyrics? Y.D.N.A.M. takes on a different persona, as Duke rapes over an R&B beat, experimenting with vocalizing, to take to empowering women. Pointing at perspectives that negate the power of women, in the world and in relationships, Duke sees people, of all kinds, as equal in potential and in their rights. There is always something to take from when listening to Wilhelm Duke, with his lyricism being catchy and holding metaphoric wisdom simultaneously, read between the lines!

Radcliff Music Up In The Clouds

With a work ethic that can rival Curren$y, and a freestyle flow that is raw and endless, there is more than enough Radcliff Music to keep your speakers rockin’. With the Educated Low Life brand, as a scholar and street artist, Radcliff continues to promote individuality and resilience to adversity in himself and others through his verses. If you can keep up with his lyricism you can learn a couple new philosophies and ways to go about life. But the message is clear: be authentic, mind your own and put in some work!

Recently on a streak of releases on Youtube, during lockdown season, taking advantage of the free time to hit the studio. His latest comes as a collaboration and a single with a couple of different energies! Fresh with KEEP UP, features artists Tamica Renee and King Rozzie, this track has a more R&B vibe to it, with its beat and feminine vocals, balanced with Radcliffs lyricism. This will follow up on his track IN THE CLOUDS, with a more relaxed lo-fi beat produced by Nate Broski. These tracks, along with FOX FLOW, are his first releases on soundcloud after a hot minute, following his Youtube marathon.

Artist of the Week: ESSSE Guey Music Is Perfect For Times Like THESSSE!

When it comes to abstract art and artists, most would think of visual art, but ESSSE Guey takes the idea and places it into his music. From his image, to his spelling, to his lyrics and wild behavior. Essse really does not follow the rules, and it works out for him musically and even visually, with his collection of music videos. As a Hip Hop artists he puts his whole mind on display, and he does not shy away from those explicit thoughts either!

His most recent music video, OD Featuring RhymSter, is a perfect visual representation of abstract antics. In the video, you will see ESSSE climbing gates, jumping around a ware house, running around dark rooms fitted with a betelgeuse (Beetlejuice) getup and masks. “Open minded odyssey, anarchy to gravity, higher than a remedy, OD off of-” ESSSE pops in with the chorus. Even the whole format of the video is abstract, with skits in the middle and the end, and even bloopers and behind the scenes footage to really reel you in.

From his image and antics, you can see the Salvador Dali, Pablo Picasso esque quality ESSSE brings to hip hop. But more than only his style and attitude, his lyricism brings him a long way as well. Recently releasing a 6 track EP, dubbed TIMES LIKE THESSSE, featuring many local artists like Baggz, Black Joe, BeatrixKiddo, RhymSter and Mike Booth. Pay attention to how expresses himself in his songs, ad-libbing with grunts, growls and barks, bouncing between Spanish and English language. His lyrics can cover anything from being carefree, ominous thoughts and activities, mischievousness, sexuality, hustle and motivation, as evident through just the song titles in TIMES LIKE THESSSE, like NO CHASIN, NO Z’S, DO NOT GIVE A DAMN and SKULLS.

Essse Guey All Day (Music Video)

Everybody has an artist they listen to all day on repeat no matter how many times they have heard them. Come across ESSSE Guey and you might find yourself in a similar predicament. Fusing a bit of Hispanic culture and lyricism into Hip Hop he adds a unique touch to his already outlandish persona. A persona that videographer Lonnie Edwards captures nicely, again through imagery with a second music video project for ESSSE following his V.I.M.M. (Let It Reign) music video.

Linking up with fellow Chicago Hip Hop head who recently released his own EP dubbed Pure Noon, RhymSter hits the first verse heavy after letting the beat run off. ESSSE ends it strong with a catchy flow leaving you feeling like hitting that replay button. He releases this track as his first single off his forthcoming project DREAMWORXXX which, judging by this song, is likely to be filled with plenty raw and authentic hip hop and nothing less. No official release dates yet so lets stay updated on his links & browse his latest releases.

RhymSter and Edmur Quinn Capture a Nocturnal Vibe on “Pure Noon”

Ever Evolved MC RhymSter is back again and with a vengeance with his first release of 2019 entitled Pure Noon. This 5-track offering — which includes a bonus track at the end — sees RhymSter and producer Edmur Quinn finding their pocket by utilizing a lo-fi, nocturnal sound.

The EP kicks off with a banger Maintainin where RhymSter takes his listeners to school by flexing his lyrical muscle over a bright and soulful instrumental. However the pace of the EP immediately slows down after with I Will which manifests itself as the perfect soundtrack for a night-time drive soaked in self-reflection. The closing 2 tracks N.Y.S.M. and Wait For It follow in a similar vein before things pick back up again on the bonus track Watch Out.

Lyrically RhymSter is poignant as usual. On the more hard hitting cuts his wordplay is witty and his delivery is sharp. On the slower, more subdued tracks he is more introspective and personal. He shows himself to be a truly multi-faceted artist over the course of these five tracks. On the production side of things Edmur Quinn presents a diverse palette here while simultaneously maintaining the concise cohesiveness of the project. Tracks such as Maintainin’ and Watch Out are hard hitting boom-bap cuts while I Will and Wait For It are much more moody and lo-fi.

The features on here deliver as well. FAFA, who is featured on Wait For It, croons with sincerity over a gorgeous jazzy guitar. JaiTheArtist shows up on the back end of I Will and her vocals sound angelic floating in the background. RhymSter and Edmur Quinn kept it simple on this project. However in between RhymSter’s witty lyricism and Edmur Quinn’s diverse array of instrumentals, their formula proved to be quite effective.
