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.

RhymSter Picks It Up! (Music Video)

Coming back around following his last visual Maintainin’, RhymSter is doing just that with more releases and music videos. Working again with Lonnie Edwards, getting more and more creative with his animations matching RhymSters lyricism. A provocative introduction to start off as the lyrics slowly pick up to a beat drop, the whole project from the beat, lyrics and visuals keeps you fixed the whole way through. Henrik3000 from Germany always follows through with raw production that compliments RhymSters style.

Keeping it going he brings it back to the real world and inside the studio. This time working with videographer and hip hop emcee Mike Booth on the camera catchin’ RhymSter in his natural environment. Under the dim colorful lighting, in the booth and at center console he spits his freestyle; somethin he is well known for on the mic in the underground Chicago hip hop scene. As he shows off his skill and studio aesthetic at Ever Evolved, take this as an invite to work with and at the headquarters with this young emcee and the crew. Expect more projects like these to drop soon!

Anything you can think of he already did it! From music videos in the streets to the skyscrapers, rocking underground and main-stages, touring in and out of cities and states. Coming into the warmer Chicago seasons with an established sound and an expanding volume of content Rhymster keeps it going with new release after another. Pulling out a collab recently, alongside a  couple singles and a music video. This is only what he is doing as an artist, behind the scenes is a different story.

With endless flows Rhymster works with certain producers within his circle that know him well and vice versa. If not he makes his own beat as he did with Face It and Don’t in which he had Frekwenzy join. This follows a couple more collaborations and singles from Ever Evolved studio artists and close associates. Linking up with producers Forest Fire, YaBoySlaps and reuniting with Henrik3000, all within the last month or so. Rhymster yet finds time to revisit Don’t to reward it some visuals.

Armed with a camera attachment and Brandon Holmes directing, Rhymster tours the city of Chicago blaring Don’t on the speakers. Turning a simple idea into an eye catching city-scape montage synchronized to beat, they do a great job capturing some of the cities historic landmark buildings and roads. Cruising through the city where he is building himself a legacy, being a boss and planning his next moves. Follow his social media pages and soundcloud below to keep up.

Ever Evolved Synergy

Reminiscing back to Show N Love at Sub T in Wicker Park you have to be reminded of the talent brewing in Ever Evolved Studio. Plenty of recent releases and events coming and going. A couple of independent singles and a wild collab track. We also had our buddy and talented videographer Brandon Holmes put together a highlight video of some successful events and celebrations, holding only a little bit of an idea of whats to come!

Background music is produced and recorded in house as well with the producers and hip hop artists and Ever Evolved members on stage and on screen, Rhymster and Radcliff.

Radcliff Music Spree

Radcliff is on a spree releasing new tracks. Can spit verses like a machine gun in the studio. Capable of creating multiple songs in a day! Just give him a beat.  There is not much you can do to stop this mans hustle. Nothing can set him back, not even genres.

Set Bax produced by Ysness got a real soulful vibe from the UK. Radcliffs hip hop verses dance on that beat perfectly around Ysness vocals. A perfect combination of styles, pushing the boundaries of his capabilities for future projects. Bouncing back to raw Hip Hop Fu$kA9to5 pays homage to the hustle. The inevitable push to do what you love for life and Safi G has more than a thing or two to say about that struggle.

Collaboration has been a recurrent in his work. Releasing some tracks out of Ever Evolved Studio with Rhymster and Young Reyes. Anybody to work with Radcliff can be sure they can be put on to something good. Coming out of Chicago that is a paradigm he is trying to change, working together to create positive motivation.
