WDAA Update: Smoked Out On Pleasant Grove

Well, there’s more of something new from WDAA this week since the release of new works from artists 2 weeks ago. Thank you, thank you.

(Read “Baltimore @WarDrumz Artist Delay 2014 Anticipated Fall Projects” on Doc’s Castle Media)

First release this week came from WDAA’s trendy rapper Quinn Shabaz as he released some new artwork for us to gaze upon.

I don’t know what this photo is of but I’m well aware of the date! Haha.

Pleasant Grove is Quinn Shabaz’s new project. We haven’t heard from him since his debut to Doc’s Castle Media in September with his visuals for “Day One” featuring Jimmy Apoet and Leon Dominick. I’m glad to have finally seen he’s doing something new. Let us mark our calendars for March 24, 2015.

Mr. Tony Bonez Sinatra gave us something to hold us over, too. He did promise to release something this New Years Eve. But seeing as though it’s now New Years Eve and there hasn’t been any hint to anything new coming from him, I can assume his music video release to the War Drumz Twitter account is what we should be focusing on for the moment.

“Smoked Out” was put out to the public from the War Drumz Audio Art YouTube channel the day after Christmas. Since then, I’ve watched it once a day. The video makes me like the song that much more.

Baltimore @WarDrumz Artists Delay 2014 Anticipated Fall Projects

Three weeks ago, we received news of two prospective projects from War Drumz Audio Art artists FLuX and Tony Bonez Sinatra. Two masterly skillful lyricist released promotional art for more “audio gold,” expected to be delivered to their WDAA music lovers within the first week of December 2014.

So where is the audio gold?

According these two emcee’s social media sites, due to unforeseen circumstances, the releases have been pushed back until further notice.

FLuX posted to his Instagram last Wednesday the cover for his awaited project The Last Tape, along with a very lengthy message, updating his followers on the whereabouts of the mixtape.

The last tape will not be dropping today. Due to unforseen circumstances, I am still waiting for features. With that in mind I would like to introduce this project to you all and tell you what it is about.

The Last Tape is a 2 disc composition that consist of Mortals the LP and High Drive the EP. I call this the Last Tape not because this is the last bit of music I will be making but because after this project I will be focusing my energy towards making albums where the artistic integrity isn’t compromised for the sale.

Mortals, the LP, is a mixtape veered more towards the women and children of the hiphop culture. With some R&B sounds mixed with some old school flows. Talks about the struggles I see them go through and me mostly trying to uplift them the best way I know how.

The High Drive EP is, simply put, fun. Its veered towards the fellas of the hiphop culture speaking on fun times and big dreams common struggles.

The project features @slum_money @QuinnShabaz@beta_ray_bonez @Leon_Dominick @dubrc@410Fonzi @jimmyapoet @iflexdick @heyblizz @trapselena @flaco_cc @phllythyboiiurg @sheiladyeah @hazmatremi @hazmatcaz@soiceytrap @gotdatflava @jae_knox@ogdutchmaster @willondenn @mikecool410 @route40shorty & @ehhwassupdoc_.

I chose this features specifically because these people are special to me in some way shape or form and have made an impact on my life.

So as soon as my features are finished I will be droppin the project a week later. And if its starts taking too long, I will release singles from the project.

Sounds like he’s cooking up something phenomenal in kitchen, ehh?

Tony Bonez Sinarta also left his listeners with the 411 as he briefed Facebook friends on the postponing of his single “Raise Hell,” set to release Friday, December 5, and posted new promo art for another single he later released that day.

“I was supposed to drop this single today but technical difficulties are stopping that. Let’s be honest, who really cares anyway. Is there anybody out there that really listens to me?”

Both artist have left fans with favors for their recent blunders. FLuX released a new visual from his vault; a new music video from 2013 mixtape Year of the Serpent.

Tony Bonez Sinatra left fans with a newly discovered track; never stumbled upon, heard or seen before by listeners. He sent his apologies and regards for his delay, along with his post, saying, “Just because ‘Raise Hell’ didn’t get dropped, I chose to drop a track I wasn’t ever going to release, just as an apology to those who are waiting.”

At least they gave us a little something, something.

New War Drumz Audio Art Promo Art Released Thanksgiving Week

It’s the last week of November and it’s looking pretty prosperous coming from the WDAA direction. Two of War Drumz Audio Art members release their promotional art for projects expected to release within the upcoming days.

Spotted first on Pharaoh Slumzyniah’s Facebook, we catch wind of what this lyrical god has in store.

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.

The Music Highlight: Jose (Liquor Talkin) by Alissa Fere

Parental Advisory Apply!

Alright, everyone is a rapper. I know, I know. I guess you’ll throw me into the mix after you finish hearing my track that was released Friday evening May 30, 2014 (My Birthday).

When it comes to expressing myself, I sometimes need to find new ways of  releasing how I feel about something. I have to let things be known creatively. I’ve always experimented with different techniques. While growing up, it can be said that I could be caught journaling, drawing, dancing, writing poetry, writing songs, creating clubs, or joining clubs. I’ve always had to stay active. As you know now, I’ve made a bucket list of tasks to complete.

These past two weeks, I’ve been dabbling in writing a song because it was a task on my bucket list. I’ve always wanted to write my own song, as if I was making a  soundtrack for my life. I watch music videos on television sometimes and think that I have the skills to create something like it. So I made a song so that I could make a music video, too. Yay!

Jose (Liquor Talkin) is a page out of the diary of Taylor Walker, a song about an event in my life that I wanted to creatively express my thoughts about. There was no biting my tongue when it came to writing it. It was exactly how I felt about something I believed to be inhuman. It was my first time recording a song and I discovered talents about myself I didn’t know I had.

I have bars! That was surprising.

I may be writing more songs. I have a lot of things that I want to get off my chest that blogging won’t be able to fulfill. So, I guess, I’m making music until I find something new to experiment with. It’s fun.

One thing off of my bucket list is complete. Time to move on to the next!

Check out the last Music Highlight. Read the interview with The Mighty Third Eye on Doc’s Castle Media.

The Music Highlight: Tony Bonez Sinatra “Mask Writter” Music Video

Yet again, I bring you another War Drumz Audio Art artist straight from B-More city. This time around it’s Tony Bonez Sinatra.

This is his latest music video for his single “Mask Writter.”

I like this song because it reminds me of the music I grew up on. You know know 90’s babies love when they hear something that sound similar to anything 90’s or early 2000’s related. Tony Bonez’s music reminds me of some old Redman and Method Man hits. Check out the assets of the video! Can you tell it’s Baltimore? Stand up!

About the Artist:

Tony Bonez started rapping at a very young age as a result of dealing with poverty during his childhood. Music became his getaway from all the issues that revolved in his life. But it wasn’t until the early 2000’s, he started writing his own rhymes and joining cyphers at school which helped gain him much respect as a fierce MC who is not to be messed with. Inspired by Redman (see, I told you it was something familiar about his style haha), Tony took up the name KidBlaq, and was later signed to an underground label Monsta Money at age 19 and took up the name Tony Bonez but shortly left to join a group known as DaUnion. A year later Bonez parted from the 4 man group after issues amongst the group and went solo. Over time he encountered SmokingAces counterpart Fly Fonzarelli. They instantly clicked. Fly introduced Bonez to the Baltimore hip-hop scene on a whole new level. Bonez since then has gained experiences with some of Baltimore’s top artist including learning from Skarr Akbarr, battling King Los, recording with the late Smash, Tiara Laniece and Yea Lano. More recently, Bonez has taken on the position as the sixth addition to the War Drumz Audio Art music label.

Earlier this year, Tony Bonez released his first EP Welcome to the Boneyard: The Rise. The mixtape is composed of 13 tracks that’ll get your head nodding to the beat for sure. My favorite track is “Do Ya Like” mainly because I love the sample of Adele in the song, but he speaks volumes in an audio picture about being intimate with a woman. I’m a woman so…do you catch my drift? Ha-ha! I’m sure he has more goodies to come along with the rest of what he has to offer. What do you think?

Baltimore is surely on the rise. There is no doubt about the potential that constantly gets overlooked. But that’ll soon come to a end.

If you’ve been following Doc’s Castle Media within the past 2 months, you’d know I’ve been making some sweet special appearances in the local hip-hop scene, spending my time meeting some really talented individuals at local open mic nights.

As I’ve been spending time meeting lots of new artist, I’ve come across an extremely talented music label by the name of War Drumz Audio Art. This label deserves some extensive credit because I’ve gotten to learn more about the label’s assets and what they offer for each of their artists signed to their team.
