God Did marks the 13th studio project Khaled has released and like his previous LP’s has several guest appearances as well as Khaled’s signature catchphrases. One of the most talked about songs on the LP is “God Did” that features Ross, Wayne & Jay-Z. While both Ross and Weezy brought the attitude on the track, Hov spoke boss talk like he always does. He did so for nearly four minutes! His verse has already been deemed by some as the Hip-Hop verse of the year. Check out the lyric video down below and let us know what you think.

Please, Lord forgive me for what the stove did

Nobody touched the billi’ until Hov did

How many billionaires can come from Hov crib? Huh

I count three, me, Ye and Rih

Jay-Z verse on DJ Khaled’s God Did

Check out God Did by DJ Khaled today on all major streaming platforms.

Should Nikko Baby Be Crowned For R&B In Chicago?

®Nikko Baby 2022

If there were any question that NIKKO BABY would be a star, you can throw that out the window. The
epitome of never judge a book by its cover, Nikko’s voice will melt your soul and make you feel his pure and raw emotion.

His musical influences include Al Green, Barry White, Heavy D, The Notorious B.I.G. and Michael Jackson to name a few. This Chicago native is a student of his craft. Falling in love with music and entertaining from the very young age of 10. He credits his first performance of Silent Night and his ballsy display to Kwiet Storm as catalysts that made him take music more seriously.

BODY OF WORK

He lives to perform live and create visual stories with his music in the studio. Over the years, Nikko Baby has had the opportunity to collab with fellow Chicago native Tink on the buzz worthy track “Freak Like Me” which has gained massive streams worldwide. Yakki Divioshi (Pop Lord), Kevin McCall to Z Money and has also developed a strong partnership with Chicago’s very own Young Chop.

A CHOICE TO MAKE

Performing and writing R&B for himself & many well known household names that include super
producer Jazze Pha, were not quick gateways to success for him. For a few years Nikko had one foot in R&B and the other consumed in street life. After a wake up call in Chicago late fall 2018, he realized that music had to be 10 toes down for survival.

While recovering from being shot, he created a cover to Meek Mill’s Save Me as a form of release. Listening to this song you felt his pain, his yearning for a better way out and an immense need to express. This one song embodies the feel and sound you want to have each and every time you hear his music. Stay
tuned for more from Nikko, with every new release he is sure to make you feel it.

LAH’Q900 DROPS A NEW VIDEO FOR “I CAN’T WAIT” OFF HIS LATEST EP “HERE I COME”.

Budding North Dallas Texas artist LAH’Q900 has definitely made his presence felt this past summer. With two major singles “Joy Rider” & “I Can’t Wait”. Most compare him to the late great MO3 or Kevin Gates. To be honest with you it’s safe to say that Lah’Q is in a lane of his own.

Certainly, Lah’Q is independently motivated and family oriented. He has been groomed under the umbrella of Stack Mode Brothers with veteran MC’s Mr. Lucci and CEO Stack Mode Fats. A formula that looks like it can’t be tampered with because it was built on solid foundation since day one.

NAWF DALLAS AMBASSADOR C – FATS & LAH’Q900

Above all “I Can’t Wait” visual shot and directed by Half Pint Filmz. Is definitely one that fans can sit back and enjoy without hesitation. It’s not too late to catch up while you can because LAH’Q900. Definitely has this lane on lock and looks like no time soon he is relinquishing the grip he has on the music scene.

Make sure you go follow Lah’Q @lahq900 on social media as well as check his latest EP “Here I Come” Out Now On All Streaming Platforms!!!!!!!!!!!!

Q&A WITH EDUBB302

ESSINCE: How did you get started in music?
EDUBB302:
I’ve been writing music since I was a kid and just recently started taking it seriously once I realized I had a sound that the people missed.

Who are you influences?
My influencers in music include the likes of Lil Wayne, DMX, Nas, Vintage Mase, 2pac, Jadakiss, and of the newer rappers I like Lil Baby, Yo-Gotti, Lil Durk and many more. I love music with substance.

How would you describe your sound to someone who’s never heard your music before?
I was describe my sound as gritty, authentic and simply music that you can feel even if you never lived a life like my own.

IN CLOSING


What’s the music scene like in Delaware?
In Delaware it’s so much talent. It’s unreal how we go unnoticed but I don’t really blame the industry. I feel if more artist got serious and really chased the dream and we learned to collab and work together without the hate we could be a force in the industry.

What would you like fans to know about you?
I want my fans to know that I really lived the life I speak of. After I spent 5yrs in prison and since my release, the focus has been continuous growth. I try to set an example to the man that is in the shoes I used to wear. Self-preservation is a must. Any issues that can be resolved should be.

What are your ultimate goals?
My ultimate goal is to make it to the main stage and possibly sign a record deal because music is expensive and without the machine behind you it’s costly. I work full time and make good money but I have a family that I sacrifice for day in and day out. Music is my ticket to financial freedom. I’m gonna make it.

Any final thoughts or shout outs?
I gotta drive like no other. When you experience some of the worst life has to offer its easy to appreciate the good. I’m focused, goal oriented, driven and intellectual. Regardless that authentic Hip-Hop sound is back and I’m gonna be one of the forces behind it.

ROYCE DA 5’9 blessed the masses this past week with his new release The Heaven Experience Vol. 1. HipHopDX reports in a recent interview with Nickel Nine that he’s moving away from the previous content he’s released with this eight studio project.

“I’ve been mulling over some ideas,” he revealed. “I think I know what I’m going to do next project-wise. I don’t necessarily want to say right now just in case it ends up changing. But I have been working in a couple different directions.” It’s dope to see that he is doing the work mentally to produce better music.

Cappadonna x Stu Bangas | 3rd Chamber Grail Bars

Cappadonna

CAPPADONNA teams up with one of Hip-Hop’s renowned producers in STU BANGAS to bless the masses with a new project titled 3rd Chamber Grail Bars

Wu-Tang affiliate Cappadonna has the fans buzzing once again with the release of his new project 3rd Chamber Grail Bars. The 12-track album features production from Stu Bangas and delivers on lyrical potency. The project is significant not only for the bars and instrumentals, but also for the fact this is Donna’s first project with a single producer.

3CGB comes off the heels of two previous projects released last year from both artists that received strong reviews. Cappadonna & Stu Bangs first worked together on Donna’s 2013 album Eyrth, Wynd & Fyre. After connecting through the A&R Extraordinaire Matthew “M-Eighty” Markoff, the duo found a common ground. With Stu having confidence that Donna liked his tracks and Cappadonna being in the right energy to receive the music, the rest was both history and dope!
