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.

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.

Toronto’s Own Soo Casa Is Coming Up

Toronto is a melting pot of talented new voices that run the gambit in terms of vibes and flows. Rapper Soo Casa is one such new act looking to pop off in the city, which currently has an aggressive spotlight pointed squarely at it. Only a year into his career, he’s managed to amass a solid following and some great looks.

Having performed across North America with artists such as the ever eclectic Jody Highroller, better known as RiFF RaFF, buzz-worthy Jarren Benton, and hometown hero Peter Jackson — whose worked with acts like D-Block and Naughty By Nature — he’s begun to a snowball effect, clocking thousands of spins.

A dope — albeit not that unique — blend of the melodic wave of cloud-rap mashed with lyricism, he comes off as a strong contender for the next class of artists hailing from the capital of Ontario.

Check out some of his tracks, below. If you’re feeling the kid, hit up his Soundcloud and Instagram.

Dade County, Florida, has quite a range of Hip Hop vibes seeping through its veins; Grasshead, repping Homestead, is bringing a positive alternative to the darker imagery we’ve become accustomed to in the past year or so. “My music is always made so the listener can use the track as a foundation for finding their way,” he tells fans on his SoundCloud comment stream.

Grasshead brings together many different sounds — all while staying close to his hip-hop roots. He was recently featured in the film “Paying Mr. McGetty,” playing himself. As well, his new single “Bada Bing Bam Bong” was used in the new Sony Crackle show “Start Up.” He is currently working on brand new music for season 2 of “Start Up,” among many other projects.

Check out his song “Magical Door” to get a taste of what Grasshead Music offers. “This track is all about finding a way to vent and get away from the stresses of your life,” he explained to a fan on SoundCloud. “Whether it’s through spiritual healing, mind elevation, or as simple as finding healing through your music.”

Connecticut Rapper Swift Beefs With Lil Pump While Working On His Debut

18-year-old Swift has an unassuming look about him; until you notice the saucy Gucci belt. The half Puerto Rican Connecticut rapper is a trap artist that adamantly claims to live the life he portrays on record. “My real life inspires my music,” he tells AAHH. True, the young rapper is a lot less about the more sinister/violent trap existence, which he may very well have ties to, and more so about the money that comes with it.

His age and his approachable appearance may have a lot to do with his recent popularity. “Whenever I go out people I don’t even know recognize me and come up to talk to me or start playing my music,” he says, “and this is only the beginning.”

With a small catalog, a mere 11 songs in length, he’s managed to get the ball rolling with the help of some über wavy production and butter flows. His most popular track, “Expensive Taste,” is a bassy track perfect for windows down on a summer evening as you roll past a sleepy downtown metropolitan en route to your Shorty’s house. “I’m just a young man feeling like an OG,” he laments on the song’s second verse.

He also has a record going at major label viral star Lil’ Pump — and it sounds mad personal, with an underlining see you when I see you tone. He takes particular aim at the fact that he doesn’t live the life he “raps” about; further exposing himself to potential scrutiny. What are the root of his issues with Pump? “I paid him $1000 for a feature back in January — before he blew up,” he explains. Ultimately, he never delivered. “Our whole converstion is still there in my messages … and I have screenshots of all of it.”

This makes me accept his authenticity even more so.

“My biggest influence to start rapping was Lil Uzi,” he admits. “Watching him come up since 2015 inspired me … and Big Pun is an influence for me to write better bars.” The latter influence is admirable and demonstrates his willingness to take this (culture) seriously.

So, what’s his endgame? “My goals in the industry are to start doing full-length projects and get my music out to as many new people as I can,” he notes, confidently. “What’s next is for me is to start writing more and spending more time in the studio … now that I’ve started to have the success, I take this much more seriously.

He’s currently working on his debut mixtape, Bankrolls, which is due out this Fall. For now, check out what the Connecticut (t)rapper has to offer.
