R&B singer Re Lxuise name has been buzzing around the music scene in Atlanta over the past few years. She’s been able to work with the likes of Bryan Michael Cox and Avery Wilson all while holding her own in the realm of music. She started in front of the church which is where all the great vocalists started. Hearing etho-complements such as “You betta sang,” and “Gone girl,” are not of the unfamiliar cloth with this upcoming superstar. She was born ready for the spotlight.
DM Me is a concept EP. Smooth production, Soulful interludes, and Re Lxuise’s beautiful alto arrangements make this EP impactful, being that it’s five tracks long. Each song carries its own message leaving you wanting more. It’s full of swagger and robust with energy. Don’t sleep.

BlaccOut Garrison who reigns supreme from Brooklyn Park, Minnesota released his 3rd EP It’s Never Fair, But It’s Worth It. With an 8 month gap between this EP and his last Cranberry Apple Juice Garrison takes his storytelling to new heights especially with his two hit singles Friendly Fires and Sex on the Floor. I was able to hear hardships, and yet the rewarding feeling of knowing that regardless of what we go through, eventually is well worth it (hence the second part of the title). Can’t help but to recognize the work behind the production from Tae Beast, Chris Calor (both from TDE), Harvey K and more that made this EP worth while. Give it a listen below!
Illadope gifts us and his fans, whom he calls Da Illaz, with the I.H.E (I Hate Everyone) Extended Player. According to him it’s an EP compiled of random beats that weren’t specifically for anything but coincidentally run well together. This isn’t your traditional EP of hip-hop instrumentals either; “I realized no one does what I do, there’s really no lane for me”, he says. Therefore Illadope is delivering beats with a contemporary sound. Check’em out below!

Recently Powers Pleasant, one of Pro Eras founding members, released an EP entitled The Powers Pleasant Experience. Which I am fond of being a Jimi Hendrix fan AND the fact that he displays his electric guitar skills on the first track (and more). I’m guessing he’s somewhat of a fan also. Even though I wouldn’t mind a track or two Powers delivered something strong.

…and the wait for #BLACKWOOL continues.
Even though we’ve been waiting for decades [exaggeration] for Black Wool, Phil Swish never disappoints. In March he gave us a couple of tracks and this month he’s giving us an EP to hold us over. Great music nonetheless; and you’re also able to download a media booklet to go with Wove. The art, on each page, mesh well with the EP’s content…and you’ll only know that if you give it a listen. BOOM. Shameless promotion, check it out.
Black Wool WILL be available later on this year. LATER ON, that’s all I can vouch for. lol
I’m still waiting on the Fab Five project from Clear Soul Forces and NAMELESS (which is due to be out on the 28th of this month) but the Cheat Codes EP can definitely hold me over until then. Another great sample and substantial lyrics are being delivered but my, and apparently everyone’s question is…where’s Ilajide?
Also, shouout to the #Yellowwall
