OUT NOW: Frank Nitt “Cuz I’m Black” ft. Kaleb Simmonds

Underground Hip Hop Stalwart Frank Nitt Is Set To Return July 20th with a New Set of Tracks Aptly Titled Traveling Salesman

Setting the tone for Frank Nitt’s Summer ‘18 return is “Cuz I’m Black,” (featuring Canadian Idol standout Kaleb Simmonds), the first single from his new album Traveling Salesman. This track is a view into the reality of the everyday struggle of being a Black man in this world.

With lines like “I’m still tryin’ to figure out / what u clutching your purse for“, and “I am not a felon / but I got some balls / u can clutch those,” Frank makes his mission plain to see.

Accompanied by the hard hitting drums and bass provided by Jay Vernon, and the melodic and uplifting vocals from Kaleb, “Cuz I’m Black” is sure to be a head nodding thought provoking summer banger.

“More than any other song on the album, ‘Help’ was the song that we wanted to make sure had the biggest impact in terms of message,” says Amp. “So its visual interpretation was important. The ‘Help’ video represents the struggle that many people are having right now with differentiating between an act and reality. A young Del in 2018 quickly grows into his present self and we are seeing the journey he has to take in discovering who he is. The final destination is his big awakening.”

 

“Help” showcases Amp’s next-level beat work which is by turns gritty and melodic and Del’s trademark laidback but concise lyricism. It is the second single from their critically acclaimed album, Gate 13. Pitchfork raved, “Protean future-funk production steals the show on this collaboration between two veterans of the Bay Area hip-hop scene.”

 

Billboard called it “an album sprawling with so many genres, unexpected sounds, and aggressive bars that it feels like a universe of its own — like hip-hop’s version of Stranger Things’ the Upside Down.” And Bandcamp stated, “Del The Funky Homosapien and producer Amp Live’s collaborative album is all about future funk grooves.”

The Los Angeles Film School Hosted the Red-Carpet Screening of Coming Home: Colombia, for Students, Media and Industry Tastemakers

 

The Los Angeles Film School hosted students, media, and fans for a red-carpet screening of “Coming Home: Colombia” on June 14, 2018. The fifth installment in the docu-series followed DJ EFN and his crew as they visited Colombia and follows prior episodes that showcased countries around the world, learning about the influence of hip-hop on a number of cultures, including Cuba, Peru, Haiti, and Vietnam.

DJ EFN, co-host of widely popular podcast – Drink Champs, as well as famed American record label executive and DJ, was joined by cast-mates: Paulo Londono, Drain, Hazardis Soundz, Charles Ribeiro, Cejaz, and Lorenzo Mashan, for a Q&A that discussed the scope of hip-hop culture in Colombia.

The episode delves into the depths of Colombian society, where hip-hip is engrained into the hearts and souls of many communities. Rappers and freestylers explain to DJ EFN and his crew how they have the opportunity to narrate their daily lives through a similar hip-hop style to that of their own. Regardless of how different their cultures may be, hip-hop is a defining way for them to connect with the Colombian people they meet on their journey.

 

A country that has seen the strife of civil-unrest first-hand, the Colombian people had a lot to teach the Coming Home cast, and the fifth part of the docu-series continues to demonstrate the powerful theme of connecting cultures through music and the hip-hop movement.

NEW RELEASE: Protoje “A Matter Of Time”

<

Protoje’s Fourth Studio Album
A Matter Of Time 

“remarkable, truly progressive reggae album” 
– BILLBOARD

“Protoje has crafted an album that’s rich, varied and digestible on several levels. A perfect summer release.”
– INDEPENDENT

“seizing the day in impressive style… organic, roots-respecting reggae sound with nuanced hip-hip, soul, jazz, electronic and rock flavors… soulfully-sung, melodious cognitions on life’s negatives and positives.”
– MOJO

Described as Protoje’s most experimental album yet, A Matter Of Time channels an array of styles and sounds from reggae, dancehall, dub, hip hop and rock into a cohesive 10 track LP. All songs were produced by Winta James and recorded at the legendary Marley-owned Tuff Gong Studios in Kingston and maintain the essence of Jamaican roots music, while pushing the envelope.

“It’s not as traditional as my last album, but it’s still authentic,” explains Protoje. “It’s more innovative, more global and more experimental. I want to elevate reggae culture and the world’s perception of it.”

A Matter Of Time is available now across all platforms

Buy / Stream A Matter Of Time 

Along with the album release, Protoje published accompanying animated lyric videos for each track.

Protoje is currently touring the United States and Europe in support of the release.
