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!

Heaven For Roses: RhymSter x Edmur Quinn

RhymSter, the flagship artist and co-leader of Ever Evolved, has released his third project and second dual emcee-producer collaboration with Edmur Quinn, following up RhymSter’s previous record, PURE NOON. RhymSter employs smooth uptempo flows with clever lines, sprinkling storytelling over soulful sampled, heavy bass, new school beats. Each record has a distinct yet similar vibe which make the tracks fresh and cohesive. He recruits fellow Ever Evolved members Radcliff Music and Mike Booth,who together along with RhymSter make Triangle Offense, on the song ALL WEEK LONG. The other three songs are entirely composed of vocals from RhymSter making this a short but sweet four record EP.

The intro track, I FEEL IT, starts with a high pitched vocal sample, leading into the hook rapped by RhymSter. “I feel it in my bones, its about that time, blisters all up on my hands from this mountain climb, escaping death up in my nightmares yelling I gotta live, me while I’m ready for it all to see what it gonna give.” This song centers around the theme of not quitting or giving up. To stay the the course while on the road to achieving your goals and living out your dreams. RhymSter ends this record with a hopeful repeated bridge.

ALL WEEK LONG is the second record with Triangle Offense. RhymSter starts the record off rapping about a typical weekend schedule of his, including a Friday night party, Saturday night show and a Sunday afternoon studio session. This song deals with some youthful weekend hacking done by the crew while moves have to get made. “All week long, Ive been grinding handling business, try’na to take care of all these children, putting myself in this position, grinding hard so say lets get it get it.” Radcliff Music comes in with that classic rhythmical smack talk, mentioning how Triangle Offense is a group with respect and a name, yet no album. Radcliff Music ends his verse saying he is not letting any weak people take him out.

Track three, DISCONNECT & UNPLUG, is a thoughtful exploration into the lifestyle of a musician born and bred out of Chicago. RhymSter writes lines such as “disconnect and unplug, this lifestyle is a heavy drug, tip toe on the borderline, tell you that I’m more than fine,” and “they want us to look through the glass, but not open the door… thank the internet for showing us the worlds colors, increasing single mothers, and decreasing eachother.” The track fades at the end leaving you barely to hear the last few lines of RhymSter’s lyrics, adding to the emotional effect of the record and leaving you wondering what was said. The weight of the beat and his lyrics leave the listener to ponder their own feelings.

C’MON SON, the finale track has a wonderful gospel sample. Paired with complex bars by RhymSter, making references and puns such as, “Breaking bread with my all brothers, Jesus in the last supper…” and “PURE NOON ya know I will, MAINTAININ while I wait for it, so watch out man!” RhymSter ends the track with a hilarious sample of a monologue from a famous film. Tying up this dense yet short project that leaves you wanting more!

Artist Of The Week: RhymSter

Building his way to the living legend title, he is well known in many underground Chicago hip hop circles. RhymSter has been making a big name for himself in Chicago and it is due to his determination from a young age to be one of the best emcees. Having left his imprint on the 606 Chicago nights at Subterranean and open mics across the board with his freestyle talent, this young emcee quickly got connected with the right people and follows through.

Connecting with the right people plays a big role in an artists success and RhymSter can identify these people with ease! Knowing that, the Chicago emcee got himself to open for popular artists like Dave East and Curren$y, twice. Right now actually, he awaits to open up for the iconic Method Man and Redman this August at Joes in Rosemont. Through his network RhymSter also finds opportunities to collaborate with talented artists and promoters in and out of state.

Networking not only as an artist emcee, RhymSter also helps run a music studio and sets up events as one of the main partners under Ever Evolved. Through this platform he not only invites himself to work with other artists, promoters and venue owners, but he gets to help influence the scene. With over dozens of artists in his contact list through either recording, producing for or collaborating with, he easily puts together local artists, djs and hosts to express their talents on stage! Artists from Los Angeles, Omaha, St. Louis, New York and Michigan, to name a few, have worked with RhymSter and Ever Evolved in either Chicago or their own hometowns, giving one another opportunities for their talents to be seen and heard.

Taking that knowledge RhymSter uses it to perfect his own craft and promote himself efficiently. All the experiences and people he has met has turned growth into quality! Allowing him to release music videos, interviews, singles, EP’s and LPS, beats and so on. If there is any question as to who this artist is the answers are not hard to find. The best way to know him is through his music as he tells it how it is and what made him who he is, through his lyricism.

Between recording artists, producing music, planning events and connecting with promoters, visual artists, designers, studio collectives and businesses, RhymSter still finds time to speak his peace. With a handful of hit singles and music videos, an album and an EP, there is plenty of content for you to get familiar with. Get familiar with why many artists new and old in Chicago look up to and respect RhymSter. From his freestyle flow and writing, to his ideas and business savvy, it is all raw, authentic and unique.

Expressing quite a bit of activity this year from the studio, RhymSter has released music videos animated by Neorevivalist, his PURE NOON EP with Edmur Quinn and a remix of GHOST. Also being introduced to the EDM community, RhymSter collaborated with Chicago duo Ayoo on their hit single TIMELINE that was released under Artist Intelligence Agency record label last month in June. Most recently he released an original beat with Frekwenzy. As a distorted RhymSter verses his way though a sinister beat and Rodneys Dangerfield sound bites, he again takes on another creative direction with DANGERFIELD. Try and figure out this mans next move you cannot!

RhymSter Shows off his Versatility on Ghost (remix)

Patience and persistence. 

These are two virtues that Chicago mainstay RhymSter has used to guide himself throughout the duration of his career in the local underground. With the release of his new single Ghost (remix) these two guiding principles appear to be serving him well. RhymSter took the original cut of this track which was done by Jaden Smith and breathed new life into it. The instrumental has a dark and creepy vibe though, it has a hazy, almost lo-fi aesthetic to it. It possesses a driving sense of energy that RhymSter uses to his advantage.

Lyrically, RhymSter murked this beat with his usual clever wordplay and easy-going sense of charisma. He exudes the confidence of the seasoned veteran that he is as he drops lyrical bomb after lyrical bomb with ease. RhymSter’s flow and delivery are crazy on this song, he shows a full arsenal of flows, switching it up in the middle of his verse repeatedly. Though he mostly delivers his bars in the lower register of his voice, RhymSter plays with his vocal inflections all throughout his verse. This shows that he is thinking about a lot more than just reciting lyrics over a microphone when he is in the booth.

RhymSter has been a lyrical heavyweight in Chicago’s scene for quite some time now. Recently releasing the Pure Noon EP with Edmur Quinn and dropping music videos for Pick It Up & Maintainin’ with award winning visual artists Neorevivalist. However, what really sets him apart from a lot of other artists is his versatility. RhymSter is just as happy to tear a trap beat apart as he is to murk a 90’s sounding boom-bap beat. Whatever the occasion calls for you can almost certainly bet on the fact that RhymSter will be doing his thing with ease.

Ghost (remix) is available now on Soundcloud.

Good Fellaz Don’t Shoot

Comprised of three underground Chicago artists we got GQ the Fool, Safi G and RhymSter joining forces to make Goodfellaz. RhymSter takes a seat back and focuses on the production for this project while Safi and GQ take the mic to spit the rawest of verses. With many live performances under their belt already, few releases and music videos they are making big moves.

These last two months has seen a couple of revisits from the trios debut Goodfellaz EP. They pick Soon As Im for the music video treatment. The raw beat features Mama Yaya and creates a real urban vibe while they cruise streets of Chicago for the camera. Their latest Don’t Shoot music video acknowledges the Chicago violenc,e not excluding police brutality, in the streets and they use their platform to spread a good message. “Put your guns down we gotta protect the youth” Safi and GQ preach on the hook. Working with production team Planarity with the waveform to promote on their youtube page.

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.

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.
