Doc’s Thumbs Up: Hazmat Remi “Evolve X” Official Music Video

For Hazmat Remi to be labeled as a “based” artist, “Evolve X” makes me ponder what the heck is based music?! If you’ve ever listened to any of the original basedgod Lil B’s songs, you’ll understand what I mean. In an interview with MTV’s The Vice Guide To Everything, Lil B explains based music as a genre where the artist expresses him/herself positively. Some based music can be negative, but if it is, it must also have a positive message embedded in it, as well. So to sum that up, based music is really too broad for me to redefine for my readers. Haha

There really is no easy way to explain what it is, you just experience it. A good based artist has the ability to capture you, regardless, with their unique approach to sharing their “positiveness.” I’ve met my share few based artist in Baltimore with that ability, one being Hazmat Remi with her song “Evolve X.”

Thumbs Up:

There’s lots of positivity in this music video, and I love the message Hazmat Remi leaves in her lyrics for this song. Though I’m not very fond of much based music, Remi makes it a lot easier on my ears to take in.

I might have beginner ears for this genre. Who knows?

Become someone. Be something. Love.

“Evolve X” makes me feel like running to random stranger to bombard them with my friendly hugs for the simple reason they’re living the best way they can. Life’s is going to be okay. Everything will be fine. It’s a song that makes a person embrace the approval of oneself during hard times; during a time where people see more evil than good. We as a people must become an acceptable society as a whole for future generations. Indeed, Doc’s Castle Media is all for that!

*cough cough* “It’s Your Talent…Own That Shhh!” isn’t my slogan just for the hell of it.

Even the Hazmats seem to be comfortable walking the streets carelessly, worry free, and ready to evolve. They want you to hop on board the evolving train. Do something that’ll awaken the brighter you for a better us.

Artsy Stuff: “Day 5,” A Short Horror Film Directed by Baltimore’s Own Petey Millz

During the month of October, Doc’s Castle Media takes time to recognize independent horror films in honor of Halloween. I rarely find local, from the DMV, submissions in this genre. I’m usually digging around YouTube for short films. But this video came easily, and I found it quite intriguing and had to post it for others to see. There are some really talented folks out there.

This submission was sent to us by rapper, producer, and more recently added title, director Petey Millz. Day 5 was also produced and performed by the talented Andrew Michael. Both artists, prior to this project, have developing portfolios of awesome work.

As for Day 5, this duo has proven while producing this film that they’re worthy of entering the playing field alongside other indie filmmakers. I can’t wait to see what more they have to offer. Check em out…

What do you think about Day 5? Are you looking forward to more short films from Petey Millz and Andrew Michael? Leave your comments below.
