Detroit rapper Justin Don is a surprisingly refreshing listen; the young artist doesn’t come from a background that you may associate with a particular sect of the the young crops of artists. Likewise, he doesn’t subscribe to any extreme isms or portray himself as a character trying to cash in on a fad. He is just a kid who likes making music — and his shit has some knock to it!

It’s not entirely clear when his full-length Will Of The D is set to hit the streets, but thus far he has a foursome of tracks available on all streaming networks that show what he’s capable of. His music accurately paints the portrait of a young man in between graduation and forever, finding his footing one milestone at a time. The vibe is a little of everything; there’s blends of pop, hip-hop, world sounds, and bouncy sound beds that would find themselves at home in just about any playlist of top 40 tracks.

“Waves,” which he notes in a Vlog will be given a visual treatment shortly, is the theme song of a summer smoke out with the team; to date, it’s easily his biggest — see best — song. “Distance” is a close second. “The more chains I have on, the less I feel like myself,” he croons, again adding to this idea that he isn’t trying to be something he isn’t. This particular song is also a testament to the work he intends to put into this game.

At it’s best, it’s just insanely smooth, and perfect for anything involving positive vibes, barbequing, and summer nights. At it’s worst, it’s similar to a lot of stuff currently out there and doesn’t honestly put him on a different plane. However, whether that’s what he ultimately wants to do isn’t transparent. At only four singles in, he’s well on his way — and has enough quality to build himself a solid foundation.

Here’s to going the distance!

Today Shady Records’ own Kxng Crooked and Wu-Tang affiliate Bronze Nazareth announce the release of their new project Gravitas set for release on December 13, 2019 via Fat Beats/Holy Toledo Productions.  Leading the way for this release is the hard hitting and gripping track, “I Can Still Remember.”

Hailing from from Long Beach, California and Gun Rule, MI respectively, Kxng Crooked and Bronze Nazareth unearth some newly refined yet classic Wu-Tang x C.O.B sounds. Combining elite lyricism from Kxng Crooked and hand crafted production by none other than Bronze NazarethGravitas gives fans 14 powerful tracks of introspection.  

“I could try to think of something deep to say about the album., or I could think of something really fly to say about it, but the realest thing I can tell you is… just listen to it – it speaks for itself.” “Kxng Crooked said. 

Joining this impeccable duo are RZA, Ghostface Killah, DMX, Snoop Dogg, Royce da 5’9, Hus Kingpin, LA the Darkman, Planet Asia, Killah Priest, Bishop Lamont, Benny the Butcher, .38 Spesh and more.

I felt his music to that extent,” Bronze Nazareth explained. “A year or two after we met I ended up on the 2077 tour as support for Crook, and we been cool since. The importance of this project is simple to me. Great bars and great Production. I and countless others regard him as one of the GREATS. Id put Crook up against anybody…bar for bar, double entendres, word play, flow patterns, feel – bruh has it all.”

Tanner Molique – “Tunnel Vision” ft. Casey Veggies

Expanding on an already blossoming roster, California record label VerySpecial presents rapper Tanner Molique and his new single “Tunnel Vision,” which debuts today on Elevator-Mag. Combining elements of trap, dance and exuding a supreme level of confidence this young upstart has a rapidly expanding fan base across the West Coast that’s getting attention across the music industry from label execs, fans and everyone in between.

“This a flex song – sing this to ya ex. Turn up to it, it don’t matter. This one shows my versatility,” Tanner Molique said. “I like to rap but I also like to sing. I think it’s cause of how I was raised with different background of music, so I’m always trying to use all the weapons I have. Casey is blessing the world with this feature. He killed his verse and I’m excited to perform this shit one day with the bro bro.”

Supporting Tanner Molique from the start of his career, helping him develop music and videos surrounding his songs, VerySpecial took interest in Tanner after realizing how unique of a person he has always been.

“I always liked to be creative growing up. During classes at school I’d either be writing songs or free styling with the homies at the lunch tables just fooling around,” Tanner Molique explained. “Then I just got more and more serious about this shit and then got myself into the studio and around the right people, now it’s something I do cause I’m addicted to it. Creating something from nothing. The process.”

The belief in the vision has been mutual as Tanner Molique has grown not only as an artist but as a person while under the VerySpecial roof.

“I’ve grown on my own ways and I’ve seen myself turning into the person I’ve always dreamt of being, but they’re the dream team for real for real. We didn’t wait and hope for some sh*t to happen we made this sh*t happen. We manifested this sh*t.”

With the “Tunnel Vision” release taking off this Fall Tanner is looking toward the video release and his new project called, Jagboy.

“Tunnel Vision has a video in the works and then we dropping a music video for the first song on the new tape I got dropping called Jagboy.”
