Throwback Thursday

Micah Million, Another artist I am sure will have a fantastic 2017. This song from December is a popular song released on GRM Daily with 200k views, I personally think it’s worthy of many more and hope that it can get the recognition it deserves.

This song has a catchy hook and good verses and is for sure to be a favourite once you give it a listen. Watch out for Micah Million in the near future.

Let me know what you think of this song!

Throwback Thursday

If you haven’t heard of them already, I’d like to take the time to introduce you to Young T & Bugsey,  This UK duo had a great year last year releasing great tracks such as the one above & also ‘Glistenin’ & ‘Is it a Monster’.

This track I’m showing you today is from June last year but is still a regular on my playlist and goes well with a Gin & Juice. Give these lads a listen and thank me later, I think 2017 will be a year of bangers from them.

SOTW 22/02/17

Skrrrrrrt! Avelino, Stormzy & Skepta on a track together?  It just had to be my Song of the Week.

Avelino this week dropped the video for his song ‘Energy’ on his channel & It’s powerful. Since his fire in the booth with Wretch 32 I’ve been keeping my eye on him and his metaphors and this track is fire.

Solid uptempo beat with 3 hot artists right now was always going to be one to watch, check out this track above and let me know what you think.

P.S – Bugzy Malone also released “Aggy wid it” last week which could be one to check out if your a Bugzy fan, personally I find him repetitive and not for me.

Reaction Videos

WHAT ARE THOSE?! 

Yeah, I bet you haven’t heard that saying in a while but I’m super hip hop & happening so I thought I would bust that quote out, reckless I know. Basically I have found myself watching lots of reaction videos on YouTube recently, specifically people from America listening to UK music because I am intrigued to see if they like it as much as I do.
The channel I find myself on the most is Zias channel as the guys on there have fantastic energy and I find them funny to watch and they also do some freestyle rap at the beginning of most of their reaction videos which I always find entertaining.
But after watching a few other less successful people on YouTube who still have a respectable following I don’t really know how I end up there and I feel like I’m not quite sure why I am watching their content at all.
I feel that it is a strange phenomenon that people are gaining money & popularity from simply listening to new music in front of people on the internet, something we all do on a daily basis without a camera pointing at us & ad revenue going in our pocket.
I guess everyone is out to voice their opinion which I am always happy to hear but I find that these “Reaction YouTubers” most of the time don’t even speak when listening to the song, It makes me feel like this is empty content and I guess it will be something that baffles me until the phase dies out.
let me know your opinions below.
