HigherENT’s KiD Jone$ returns with his fall release of ‘Club 308’. While still coming with the power play-esque rhymes complimented by J.Battle produced beat play, the growth since his last project ‘11:59’ shapes Jone$’ gutter confidence and sound chemistry into perfect harmony. The 6th tape in KiD Jone$’ hub definitely shows a solid coverage of the artistic spectrum—listening to joints like New Years (where Jone$ creatively still manages to finesse a few radical lines here and there) all the way to Bentley Coupe (another strict and non-reclusive rap song about fire sh*t). Homecoming week at Howard University has placed KiD Jone$ on their event roster to open for both Lil Uzi Vert AND Metro Boomin’. Like if that ain’t enough reason to get familiar I don’t know what is. Peep the release below and indulge in our generation’s newest way to express thy hustle. - b.

We are paying homage to Noisey, one of the most prominent sources for music and urban culture provided by the human beings (and technology) over at VICE. Since the 90’s, VICE has always been pressed about it’s super community-incorporated news and content retrieval. It’s (fax machine emoji) that regardless, it is one of the first publications to acquire exactly enough content to move through the streets all to witness on a national level. Noisey was built strictly as a music platform back in 2011 and has continued to build artists around their own thriving communities and message boards. Is it because of the depth Noisey creates with day-in-the-life segments, nation-wide parties and heightened media involvement that your interaction levels are at a whopping 99.9%? Seemingly overtime—and as trends change, Noisey among many other VICE media sublets including Munchies—(your best kept secret to organic cuisine around the world and the effects of it’s presence) and Motherboard—(a guide to everything in the world that either makes us smarter or more dependent) have positively pumped out streams of relevant media through TV and online publication. VICE celebrated their launch of the exclusively curated media news TV channel, ‘VICELAND’ earlier this year and they are basically success goals. With ReignCity as The Northwest’s Reigning Source for Events, Arts & Culture, we say thank you for curating a positive and progressive source for our favorite wave-makers of the generation and then some. Cheers. - b.

In the midst of police brutality and systematic racism, Seattle Hip-Hop Artist and Community activist Yirim Seck has teamed up with Seattle producer QREEPZ to release his latest single “We Call It (Murder)”. The song offers a candid depiction of the injustices people of color suffer at the hands of law enforcement, and calls for systemic change. Within this framework Yirim Seck also brings focus to the children who witness such atrocities and the psychological toll it has on them.
Through this powerful single, Yirim Seck manages to capture the emotions and concerns people of color are feeling around the world. This powerful track is supported by musical production that is equally emotional as the lyrics Yirim delivers.
To capture the essence of “We Call It (Murder)”, Yirim Seck enlisted hip hop artist and music video director Notework. Together they collaborated to create a stunning visual portrait of family, community and those most effected by injustice.” - Yirim Seck
