First introduced in my post “Shoutout to Baltimore Punk Rock Band Ballyhoo for Setting Off Halloween the Right Way,” Duck Myers caught my attention when he walked to my booth while working an event for CBS Radio. We vibe for a little while about Baltimore’s lack of support for local talent. Then I let him listen to a track I recorded. He took an interest in my music and I couldn’t wait to hear what he had.

When it came time Mr. Duck Myers would finally sent me something to hear, I was amazed because not many people who walk up to me at an event for CBS follows through and actually are talented. Haha. “Like Stars” is his second song submitted.

Thumbs up:

Like their name (Rage)aholics, the song gives me that feeling of wanting to lose control. It’s one of those get up and party hard like you were born to live a Project X type of lifestyle.

I suddenly want to make a documentary of my life’s desire to want party. Hmm…

I’m uncertain if this song has visuals, like a music video or lyric video. But I can picture this video being very colorful and full of alluring activity similar to what goes on in the film Project X. The director might have to “eff” around with these effects to create their own sequel for the movie.

They better call me to come be on the set. I’ll be the one throwing money.

What do you think about Like Stars? Does this sound like a song worthy of radio play? Leave your comments below.

Seems a little sinister and very frightening, but, I guess, we’ll have to be patient and see what he’s dropping next week. Tony Bonez Sinatra is expected to release his new single ” Raise Hell” this December 5th.

In addition to Tony Bonez’s poster being set free from the WDAA vault, FLuX’s releases two images via his Instagram this past weekend.

Hmm, “The Last Tape” sounds intriguing. Did he leave his best work for last or is it literally his last mixtape? Hopefully, we can get more from FLuX once the project is released.

On the following day, comes this mysterious image of the word “mortals” spelled out in what looks to be a vicious fire. It also was posted to FluX’s Instagram profile.

Not much we can take from that, either. It’s just another mystery to ponder over. It’s uncertain when his project will drop. Hopefully, it’s sometime soon because too much suspense can detrimental to Doc’s little heart.

Pharaoh Slumzyniah Produces Fire With Release of 2nd Underground Album “No Role Models, No Rules”

This week, Baltimore native Pharaoh Slumzyniah released his second underground album No Roles Models, No Rules and reveals that embracing your dark side can be quite cultivating, too. He further introduces to the world a new type of hip-hop, which he calls menace rap, a new style of music that has no regards to what society expects. It’s an album geared entirely to “not giving any f*%@s.”

NoRoleModels No Rules Cover

No Role Models, No Rules was set to release Saturday, November 15, 2014. Unfortunately, the anticipated underground album was delayed an additional 3 days building more anticipation for Slumzy fans. But despite the contrary, the album still exceeded fans’ expectations, and has proven a bigger and better composition than his previous discography .

The album is composed of 18 somber, but still upbeat, tracks that, though may get you pondering whether you should be nodding your head or seeking to drown in your sorrows, will have you dancing nonetheless.

tracklisting

To name a few artists who have been featured on the Pharaoh’s new mixtape are War Drumz Audio artists FLuX, Leon Dominick, Quinn Shabaz and Based rap artists Lor Bluntz and Hazmat Caz.

Experimental sounds of dubstep, old school, westcoast, and hardcore hip-hop influenced and blended together on No Role Models No Rules to create an exquisitely composed masterpiece. Majority of the album’s producer credits comes from Pharaoh Slumzyniah, himself, as Slumzy along with Exclusive Orchestra, Def Starz, The Marvel, Clyde Strokes, Xeno Carr and other talented producers, including Baltimore and War Drumz Audio Art artist Tony Bonez Sinatra.

“Thumbs Up” Tracks

My favorite tracks on No Role Models, No Rules are “Fall of Pete” featuring Hazmat Caz and “Cypress Hill” featuring Lor Bluntz & FLuX.

“Fall of Pete” is a song that’ll place you in nostalgia of west coast rap. Do you remember Snoop Dogg’s “Who Am I (What’s My Name)?” The instrumental will have you thinking the music video should be set in a neighborhood similar to East Compton. I wonder if that’s something to look forward to from Mr. Slumzyniah, hmm?

“Cypress Hill” is a pothead’s anthem and we just don’t get enough of those, right? Depicted from three perspectives, the listener gets the inside to how the infamous Mary Jane comforts and provides remedy while they all float their way to solace on cloud nine.

No Role Models, No Rules is now available for download on Datpiff.com. Be sure to get your copy today! (CLICK THIS LINK FOR DOWNLOAD) Don’t forget to follow Pharaoh Slumzyniah’s social media at Pharaoh Slumzyniah on Facebook, Slum_Money on Instagram, and SKSlumzy on Twitter.
