If you're in NYC and don't know about She's So Fresh... Well I was told if you don't have anything nice to say then don't say nothin. I'll save you the berating. Just listen to what the ladies have to say alright. And share the music. Be proactive, it's the least you could do.
After breezing through the summer airwaves, LiKWUiD returns with a few remix interpretations of the hit single "Sight for Sore Eyes" featuring Donwill and Adrienne Mack-Davis. Coole High of ReddOktoba Productions provides two smooth renditions of the 50's themed hip hop ballad, while newcomer, Gaijin (Kevaughn Nugent), produces an aggressive tweeter throttling crunk-inspired rugged bass rhythm for the record.

Stylez here's more proof of the fact that the borough where it all started is pumping out original sounding tunes that aren't regulated to only what's popular on the radio from every other region but the northeast.

I see what you did right there but I don't really like it. Even as a fan of Adult Swim's 2007 twisted animated television series Superjail I'm not crazy about the marriage of visuals, which makes me wonder how those who aren't fans of the show will receive this representation of a song attempting to reveal the growth of an artist on his third forthcoming release. Instead of faster, better, stronger it's more so darker, grittier and vulgar. Now, what's the rest of the album sound like? If anything an attempt at being 'different' is rewarded, but to what cost?
Reign On The Parade will be released on September 18th with feature collaborations from producers such as J-57, 6th Sense, neo-soul artist Trezure Empire, Noise Maker Media and 808 Shirts.

The idea behind Jansport Strings is not based on it being literal, but more so in the figurative sense. As a kid in NY, the strings on your Jansport bag were a sign of power and presence. Kids would steal the strings off of each other's bags and burn the tips to prevent getting robbed of them once they got them. The song is a 3 minute auto-bio of me as a kid in Brooklyn and seeing more than my friends and I had bargained for. In essence, my Jansport strings tied it all together, seeing what we all saw and what it made us. The ending is a clip from Video Music Box, the legendary NYC video show run by DJ Ralph McDaniels. This episode in particular was the debut of Chi-Ali's 'Age Ain't Nothin But A Number'. Seeing that video that day on this episode of VMB made me start rhyming. This clip was literally the moment that changed my life.-Skyzoo
