Boom Bada Bam Bing, The New Collab With Broken Robots Introducing Trevor Pilz

Broken Robots (Kat Baker, Tony Baker, Lonnie Phillips) are back with a new single introducing Chicago rap artist Trevor Pilz. The track titled BOOM BADA BAM BING, is a rebellious anthem channeling the likes of Cypress Hill’s B-REAL and the great Eminem. Kat Baker and Trevor Pilz share the infectious half rapped, half sung chorus, with Tony Baker on the guitar leads and rhythm production. The whole song feels throwback in its influences yet contemporary in its execution.

Bottom with the rocks in handcuffs, put them in a box with padlocks,” Kat Baker sings with her signature pianissimo style. “Singing boom bada bam bing, still do the damn thing, whatcha gonna do about it, bitch not a damn thing,” Trevor Pilz responds in the two part hook that evokes the idea of the sovereign citizen freedom fighter. Trevor Pilz being relatively new to the scene, but having such a strong sonic start thanks in part to Broken Robots, is quite commendable. A lot of artists in the scene do not get the privilege to have quality production, even less have the skill and talent to back it up like Trevor Pilz clearly possesses.

The track, BOOM BADA BAM BING, is two verses with two hooks, beginning and culminating in sound bites of various interactions with the police. The single infers this disharmonious relationship with those who are meant to protect and serve, but most of us know that is not really why they are here in our communities. BOOM BADA BAM BING, the new single by Trevor Pilz in collaboration with Broken Robots is available on YouTube and SoundCloud today with a lyric visual to accompany it on YouTube!

YOUNG XAV Defies Genres With Sophomore LP Dead By Dawn

The long anticipated LP DEAD BY DAWN by YOUNG XAV has been received and it is bigger than expected! In the works since the release of his debut LP AFTER DARK, it is an extension of the 1st, completing the journey we are living vicariously through YOUNG XAV. Being teased with singles like WAYS TO DIE, MANIA FREESTYLE and KISS KISS BANG BANG, and interviews with the Ever Evolved platform and others alike, foreshadowing concepts and genres. There is a bit of something for everyone in DEAD BY DAWN, leaving each listener with a piece of his life within every song!

Earlier in YOUNG XAV’s music journey he was more centered on hip hop styles in his production and his lyricism, dabbling in R&B whenever. Making a decision to explore other sounds following his MANIA FREESTYLE, with his style, it seemed like it was bound to happen. Leaning towards more instrumentals, YOUNG XAV fittingly dips into more rock influences, without abandoning hip hop altogether of course. He balances it smoothly back and forth throughout DEAD BY DAWN in between other styles, creating a diverse and highly entertaining LP, there is no dull moment, despite its length at 13th tracks!

Introducing us with its title track DEAD BY DAWN, with a 80’s dark, electro synth-pop, Stranger Things vibe, featuring Aanjoulique on vocals, creating a mystifying energy. YOUNG XAV enters firing with a prelude as the beat switches up: “If I should die tonight, best believe i lived my best one, if I should die tonight please reflect on all my words, if I should die tonight please my momma love her tell my father… tell my brother…” Opening strong he keeps the energy going with ONCE UPON A TIME, keeping up the heavy hip hop bass. He then switches it up and dials down to something different and personal!

Continuing with a jazzy selection, the LIFE & TIMES OF XAVIER ROBERT opens up with soothing horn instruments and grand piano, as if in a 1920’s speak easy, leading you into the happenings of YOUNG XAV’s mind in his verses. The production of this track in particular sets it apart from the rest of the album, but is not the exception to its diversity. The following title, PLAY PRETEND keeps a similar melancholic energy, as XAV sings over acoustic guitar. Just the introduction of the full LP shows you how far YOUNG XAV has come as he has grown as an artist since his debut LP in 2019 and earlier releases. Whether he continues on this path or not, we are forever grateful for the talent we have been able to experience through him and look forward see what YOUNG XAV has planned next!

G.T.I.M. and MOECYRUS Take the Boom Bap Throne with TOMA

First discovered G.T.I.M. with his fast flowing, Midwest chopping skills on FIYAH produced by Cuzzin Vinny. Now he is back with a collaborative EP with MOECYRUS on TOMA. A back and forth boom bap sparring record, where both emcees lay their skills down and leave everything they can on the track. A truly impressive record reminiscent of solo Wu Tang cuts. 

G.T.I.M. is an acronym for GTEK THE ILL META4, and he absolutely brings meta bars throughout all 5 tracks with heavyweight emcee MOECYRUS right alongside in their boom bap duo. G.T.I.M. raps the first verse of TOMA, produced once again by Cuzzin Vinny, in Spanish, before switching into English, “Let me switch the language I’m the number 1 contender, one that’s for sure is that Wu Tang is forever!…” MOECYRUS and G.T.I.M. share the hook chanting TOMA back n forth. 

The second record on TOMA is actually produced by G.T.I.M. himself; hearing rappers rap over their own beats is always inspiring. “I swear that I’m not a villain, living for lords bidding, something like heavens hitman, killing like hells janitor,” this dope line of metaphors stands out in track 2, MACHETE. “Fuck you need me for? I don’t ask for nothing, all you really want is to get your sound bussin,” MOECYRUS raps, inferring scene artists trying to waste his time or only use him for clout. 

Track 3 SPECTRUM, is actually produced by MOEYCRUS! Highly recommend this song for its piercing lyricism from both of the Chicago emcees. “I said I never folded unless I am aluminum…!” raps MOECYRUS. G.T.I.M. hits a nice string of lines with “Like when you’re making them nervous because you’re a genuine person, and I’ve been putting that work in, and becoming the version I’ve been dreaming and merging” 

MILITIA is another Cuzzin Vinny production evoking two solid verses from the fencing emcees on TOMA! The hook is a series of samples referencing militant raps of times past. MOECYRUS starts the record before passing it off to G.T.I.M. “I’m putting in my time like military service,” that line can sum up the skill needed to pull off a track like this. 

The final record begins with a sound bite mentioning martial law. G.T.I.M. comes in with highly charged anti-political bars. “Most the medias a lie, now they call it fake news, but it’s been that way. Let me tell you it ain’t new, always been propaganda, omitting out any truth. Then they hijacked rap, spitting bullshit in the booth.FML the acronym for “fuck martial law” the hook comes in tight and clean by MOECYRUS.This record is a must save and listen for any hip hop head of the Midwest and beyond. Any fan of music, boom bap, poetry, lyricism, political references, Latin music, should find something lovely, familiar, unique, and charged with the passion of true hip hop in TOMA

CantBuyDeem ESSSE Always Keep A Whistle!: Monday Majesty

The League Champs are at it again with another music video for the fans. CantBuyDeem & ESSSE get together for a beat for LEAGUE CHAMPS VOL I, the two also got busy making a video, shot by Hayward, obviously. Performed live plenty of times in front of fans already, Cantbuydeem always introduces this song subtly, “if you know you know, what keep a whistle means…” which basically is to flex your 2nd amendment. Coming from Chicago, you would know that is an important piece of advice, and Cantbuydeem gives you all the reasons why in his verse; which all adds up to, good cautious living and self care attracts predators! “I’m smokin lemon haze and sippin lemonade and jamo. Slice of cucumber in my water I don’t fuck with Faygo. I won’t get boogie on you baby, I just cut the fake off...” Finishing off with “…you see me comin’ thru the exits, its about perspective. Treating the clown for disrespectin’, make that shit look sexy, if i got dead presidents in my wallet, slave masters in my pockets.” Essse finishes off the track in style, lyrically representing the hispanic community, his raw energy always keeping the track hype.

Mic Fort Brings The Danger! (Music Video)

Mic Fort is keeping up momentum with another new release that features a few Chicago artists. Mic has been keeping his fans occupied with a few hit singles this year following his sophomore LP PENUMBRA. Sittin on singles like WIFI DOWN, TRUST MYSELF & LIVING LIFE ft Dee-Jay, Mic Fort now gives us DANGER. Bringing back Dee-Jay, Deen Akbar and StankNasty who is hot off a debut EP release titled EPIC and a hit single with AMK and Johnny Innuendo, Gerald The Genius L. Mic Fort and StankNasty are not unfamiliar either, having worked together on a track before called LIBRA SCALE, a tribute to the respective astrological sign.

DANGER comes with a music video directed by AIR BORN FILMZ that looks like a session to brainstorm a new song, each artists going one by one showing off their bars. Starting out with a low transposed voice reporting for the chorus, “Danger Hip Hop Is Back.” Deen Akbar starts out the circle ominously positive and confident, “…Motivate, celebrate, the key to this whole function. Got my foot on they necks, and plenty verses ready, they nervous, might as well get the hearses ready.” Dee-Jay takes over next with a laid back flow, simultaneously quick with his words and syllables, showing off his lyrical talent!

StankNasty takes aim at mumble rappers and clout chasers, “I’m not one to be kind to mumbling prima donnas, thats on my momma. Clout chasin don’t get you commas, these pants saggin, braggin rappers ain’t shit but caca. Dropped on they heads when they was babies, goo-goo ga-ga.” Finally Mic Fort ends out the track and enters the scene with power, declaring, “Hips hops grim reaper. Had to steal their soldiers to turn em into believers. Ice cold from the freezer.” He takes aim at unoriginal, cookie-cutter artists that saturate the genre. “They givin up the game for fame, its strange they blame, they claim, T-pain said it best, ya’ll all sound the same, lack of originality…” Mic Fort’s closing line, “this is hip hop so beware the new era” can only be met with humble satisfaction, the future of hip hop is in good hands!

Mic Fort has been gaining a network of artists to work with, with his releases. DANGER in itself is packed with talent, just as his LP PENUMBRA was, getting his name known in different circles. He has been making the effort to get his name known in between his releases as well. Recently talking as a guest on Pillow Talk Podcast, he has also been making noise on stages at open mics and even Arizona’s Hip Hop Festival in mid September. Mic also plans to make an appearance at The Forge in Joliet, Il on the 30th to perform, so you can catch his era of hip hop live or just bump this on repeat here!

Nova The King Recruits Heavy Hitting Features for Nova & Friends

Nova The King’s NOVA & FRIENDS EP is a 6 track power punch of banging tracks, with braggadocio one liners and smooth hit lines. For the record Nova The King secured features from Weegi Wizers, Jerm X, Relic The Bully, East Venti, Mikey Rose, and BillDollarSign. FOCUSED is a track about becoming a bigger, more successful rapper. The hook is “I’m focused, ain’t no debatin homie, I swear that I’m owed this. Hottest one in my city, put the whole game on notice. Once you getting bread, start shining, become the locust. But they can never stop me, because too focused.” Jerm X comes in for a 2nd smooth cool verse where he references James Bond and the golden gun.

The song GEORGE references when George W. Bush said Shame on you, Nova comes in with a hook about getting W’s like George, Call me George cause I get a lot of W’s.” A direct funny joke, especially if you grew up during the Bush years. Nova hits a faster flow on this record when saying, “Step in the booth and I’m causing alarm…” Relic the Bully delivers a powerful high technical verse on this track, big ups! Track 5 is titled TIMMY even though the ending of each phrase of the hook is verbatim “to me” but slurred together it could be spelled out timmy; hip-hop is full of rappers playing with spellings, acronyms, homonyms, etc.

Fuck the competition cause I’m past that,” Nova The King ends the EP with a catchy strings of hooks and lines with PAST THAT. BillDollarSign comes in a new-wave type verse, with fun lifestyle lines. He eventually starts crooning, and he seems to have a mixture of an ATL and Chitown sing rap craft. Nova The King has been consistently working and releasing music, make sure to follow him to stay up to date on all of his content!

Sherrell The Artist Is Drowning In Deep Thoughts And Lyrics!

Sherrell the Artist is definitely one that lives through passion. Her expression is fulfilled through music, and it can be quite relatable to listeners. She recently releases a single called DROWNING and opens up very blunt on the first verse, making it known she is deeper than her looks and style. “Misunderstood so I might lose you when I say this but, you looking for some pretty music. Got the wrong bitch cause, this is passion, rage and pain, baby all of it so. It’s not gonna sound pretty, I’m not sorry. Besides the music i don’t open up hardly.” Nearly every line is deeper than words, even Sherrell’s chorus to the song opens up with some heavy thoughts, connecting her confusion to a feeling of drowning, and numbing herself with drugs, leading the blind with her songs. Or perhaps in another perspective, comforting the blind, as she sings knowing most people tend to keep their troubles private, and her words may help guide them through the motions. “I got the music that can speak through all your heartaches, i’m touching souls with my words.” Music or therapy, you decide!

K.E.N Is Taking It All On Sight

One golden rule of success is not to publicize your every move, sometimes you just have to keep people wondering before you come out with something big! K.E.N, Aka The God Level Goat, Killin’ Every Note, has this philosophy laced in his movements, as he comes up on new opportunities it seems from out of no where, popping in and out with new music here and there, or ending up in festivals like YAS! Most recent actions to observe is his recent single release of ON SIGHT, after being relatively silent, however not inactive, landing himself an acting position on The Chi as he would announce on his social medias. Perhaps his energy on stage and in his music like ON SIGHT, gets him this kind of attention from key players with ease, maybe he works hard every night. Even his lyrics can leave you guessing, “I’m working hard every night, it’s the liquor with sprite, got me feeling so right, might just go pick up a mic. Feel I’ll go bust it on sight.” Either way his talent is undeniable, and the production by the Ambi/\nce is not just complimentary, its hype!
