“Go” by Real J. Wallace, produced by Dayfade

A few weeks back I’ve had the pleasure to attend Black Xpression Night at ThChrch in Barrio Logan where I’ve witnessed a number of performers get on the mic and spit some of the most beautiful and heartfelt poetry and bars. One of the performers that was in attendance that night was Ramal J. Wallace, otherwise known as Real J; who is in fact a co-owner of ThChrch and a highly regarded emcee and philanthropist in San Diego community. The second ...

Speaker Child + Andre Nickatina Drop “Phat Ass”

This past weekend, Speaker Child & Andre Nickatina paid their sincerest homage to woman’s derrière by dropping their freshest music video for their single Phat Ass, produced by Roc Phizzle. The visuals definitely live up the the title and the bars are quite catchy as well, especially Nickatina’s hook: “phat ass…phat ass, no credit card bitch all cash, put the weed and the coke on car dash, jump right in make a big splash..”  I have had the pleasure of seeing Speaker Child and Nickatina ...

Kosha Dillz OY VEY USA Tour at Chain Reaction

This past Friday, April 31st, Kosha Dillz came through Anaheim, CA on his first ever headlining tour OY VEY USA. And per usual, KD tore the club up and stole everyone’s hearts and attention with his typical witty bars and bottomless exuberance.

Kosha Dillz Drops a New Video Before Kicking Off His ...

Last weekend Kosha Dillz dropped his new video for his track “No You Can’t” which can be found on his debut album What I Do All Day & Pickle. The song, as well as the video content, is a witty and tongue-in-cheek message dedicated to those who shamelessly ask you for things and favors and to them Dillz says “No You Can’t”. I’ve actually had the pleasure watching him perform this joint live and it’s hilariously true. It’s definitely the type ...

Some days after ...
