Jay-Von - Be Heard

Jay-Von has yet to let us down whether it be curating dope playlists or showing support; but little he does compares to his pure rapping ability. Once again, Jay-Von and the Picture My Vision Entertainment team have released a no holds barred single, Be Heard. The bar filled, gritty track compares Von to the south, itself and appears on the newly released "Picture My Vision Mixtape Pt 1. After you listen to Be Heard go check out the entire mixtape, you will not be disappointed.

R.I.K. VIITH - Elevated Ethics Vol. 2 

With his second volume of "Elevated Ethics" R.I.K. VIITH comes together with artists from New Orleans, Louisiana in an amazing showing of lyricism, talent and unity; in true New Orleans style. From the content to the production, "Elevated Ethics Vol. 2" showcases the depth of R.I.K. himself as well as his peers. While all the features are perfectly placed, KVNGDAVID (FKA C.I.T.Y. Chronicles) and XXL definitely standout and complement R.I.K. immaculately on L.A. and Memoirs, respectively. There is not one lull  on "Elevated Ethics Vol. 2", with each track boasting more and more bars. Even with the features placed just right, R.I.K. VIITH's flow throughout the well put together, impressively cohesive project sits atop everything that makes the project great. You absolutely need to give "Elevated Ethics Vol. 2" a spin, or three, and elevate your mind. 

Keep up with R.I.K. VIITH on social media

UllNevaNo & Jumbled - 86 Draft

Baltimore natives UlNevaNo and Jumbled plan to release an EP titled "The Ghost of Len Bias" soon, their new track 86 Draft is, fittingly, the first single from the project. The concept of the project is immediately intriguing and UllNevaNo's classic rap style atop Jumbled's production make us interested to hear what the pair has up their sleeves.
