No Longer the Hero ‘On My Way’ Get An Animated Treatment

One of the unique things that stood out in No Longer the Hero’s bio they sent over to us is that they are “singing the wrong notes in the right pitch.” The duo of Demetrius “Whodini Blak” Reynolds and Michael Piccard are a blend of musical influences that range from rock to hip-hop–and some sprinkles of other things in between. They self-describe as a playful melding of darkness and light, something that comes across on their latest single, “On My Way,” which comes packed with an emotional animated treatment dealing with the introspective theme of loss.

What we can deduce is partially a euphemism for death–among other possible theories–the song is lyrically dense, and pleasantly full of imagery. It’s quite beautifully done. Whodidni’s singing and Michael’s rapping compliment each other well and make the track a palatable listen–amidst a seemingly dreary theme.

Hip-Hop is indeed a worldwide phenomenon; 15-year-old Germany-based femcee PaRan has been making music for close to six years now; but, Music has always been a part of her love. “Since I was like five years old, my mom listened to music non-stop. It was a lot of old school music like Elvis … but, also Hip Hop,” she tells AAHH.

“My music is sincere and emotional … the style is different to what’s popular in Hip Hop right now.” Her debut, Devastated, is a 12-song slice of surprisingly poignant bars and underground beats. Influenced by the likes of Eminem and Tupac, she’s only just getting started.

“Currently, I’m just working on new tracks and improving my skills,” she says. “I want people around the world to listen to my music, and grow a loyal fan base.” Currently doing features — and working towards live performances — her future is bright. Check out her debut, below.

Producer MAPS Is Holding Producers Down With His New Brand

Instrumental Connect—the brainchild of Mario Paez, better known as MAPS—is a new brand providing top-quality beats to rappers at all levels. MAPS got his start playing in punk and indie bands before shifting his focus to specialize in hip-hop; that was eight years. Today, he confidently tells AAHH that many SoundCloud rappers have already used his services, most notably Young Sev Da Truth and also FLA Amazin.

Mario states that Instrumental Connect provides “creatives their ultimate need; endless choices of ‘blank’ musical canvases (instrumentals) for them to write to.”

One thing that sets his brand apart is the commercial use of the beats. “Upon download of any beat, the downloader has full, unlimited commercial rights to that beat. No fancy licensing contracts, no limit on where the downloader can use it,” he says. “The beat is completely theirs to do what they want with it.”

With that in mind, there are exclusive options available—dependant on artist budget.

To take listen to his professionally mixed, mastered, and ready for commercial distribution beats, check out the Spotify stream below. The website is currently in development.

Premiere: BobbyXL “Lost in My Way” [Video]

He tends to describe his sound as a mysterious melodramatic hip-hop style. This new single is definitely all the above.

20-year-old New Jersey-born artist BobbyXL definitely has one with his new single/visual “Lost in My Way.” The young artist started writing and recording in middle school when he and a friend found the program “Mixcraft” on a desktop in the computer lab. They used to write raps and record them into the keyboard (where the mic was) at lunchtime. Now, he produces/writes/mixes and masters almost all of his material.

“Lost in My Way” tells a story of confusion and perplexity! Amped to release the video, the first of many to come!”
–BobbyXL

He tends to describe his sound as a mysterious melodramatic hip-hop style. This new single is all the above. Shot by the infamous Secret Society Motion Pictures–which is instant credibility to us BTW–and directed by Nimi Hendrix, the visual is almost as ominous and quasi-dark as the song itself. Dripping with youthful uncertainty, the song has a really dope vibe to it. Worth a spin!

Check out the AAHH premiere, above!

Soo Casa Returns With “Cldhnky”

Toronto rapper Soo Casa — who has appeared on AAHH in the past — is back with a hot new single in advance of his first headlining show next month (November). “I plan to release more tracks on a consistent basis leading up to that,” he tells AAHH.

“Cldhnky,” the first song mixed and mastered by Soo Casa (a la J.Cole/Russ) is a braggadocios planting of a flag in the game. A suitable follow-up to “nolovesongs” which he dropped two months ago, he proclaims himself as the “coldest honky in the game right now,” peppering the bassy Ninety8 produced instrumental with a barrage of punchlines. It’s a little more bar for bar Hip Hop, which is sure to help build his profile as a spitter.

Soo has been building a cult-like following on his social media profiles as of late and is hoping that organic grind will translate into further exposure as he begins to drop songs at a more feverish pace throughout the 4th quarter on 2017.
