Track: JP One – Fire & Brimstone 2

fireandbrimstone2.1600

With the current state of hip-hop being about everything besides the music, it is refreshing to hear someone with a passion that burns so deep that you can feel the intensity when he steps inside the room. From the opening act of “Encore” to the closing scene of “Hope Dreams” ft. LaToyua Hart, there’s no lapse or slack in effort or execution.  In just four years, since being released from a nine year prison sentence, JP ONE has cemented his name amongst Detroit’s elite lyricists and his latest offering only adds to his legacy. With features from Elzhi, Black Milk, Guilty Simpson, and Jovie (who took home the Lyricist of The Year award from the Detroit Underground Hip-Hop Awards earlier this year), this project lacks not in the lyrics department. Other guest features, Chel Strong, Pierre Anthony, 3D, and LaToyua Hart look more like breakout stars than extras in this beautifully written and directed motion picture. BJ Gates, Pig Pen, and Flamin’ Laces return from the first installment of the Fire & Brimstone trilogy (released March 9th) to create another great soundscape for one of the premiere emcees of our time to do what he does best, SPIT. This is exactly what the legends envisioned hip-hop to sound like in 2015. #WESTILLWINNING

Althea “Thi Thi” Heart’s new single, “JUST GOTTA BE REAL” was released today.  It’s a sneak peek from her upcoming debut album, and it features Thi Thi’s fiancé, the talented rap artist and entrepreneur—Benzino.  Thi Thi has soulfully and artistically rendered a remake of Deniece Williams’ 1976 hit “Free” with Benzino fortifying Thi Thi’s classic sound with rap lyrics that compliment the smooth mellow melody.  The single showcases Thi Thi’s incredible vocal talent and her panache’ for delivering a high level of professionalism and musicality.  “JUST GOTTA BE REAL” is a sophisticated sound that pleasantly and unapologetically delivers!  Thi Thi’s EP “CONTROVERSY” is scheduled for release on August 14th.
