Hip Hop Prevails...

It's been a minute since I last posted. Partially, because I've been swamped with non-music matters, but for another reason as well. I was observing several happenings in our industry that I felt deserved respectful silence.  I won't go into details and instead I would much rather share updates on good ol' music production and releases.

Firstly, if you haven't downloaded this joint yet, you better get right on it - Aero x Chrizo with Drinking Man's Hip Hop. It's an indirect sequel to Chrizo's Thinking Man's Hip Hop Compilation that is, once more, unadulterated reppin' over boom bap beats.  Kick back with this free downloadable album and enjoy the view of the world through Red Horse-tinted glasses.

Peep the video for single "So Pinoy". I'm sure a lot of us can relate to this song with our own versions of being "so pinoy", but hey, none of us were effortlessly genius enough to do a track about it. Good stuff.

On to other release highlights.  RBTO's debut solo album is now available for download! "His album entitled
Inverse comes from the idea that we can transform our thoughts and experiences into verse form, much like how particles can invert into waves (Thomas Young's concept of Wave Theory of Light)."  Well, upon hearing his album, you'll soon learn that not only are his verses formed by his thoughts and experiences, but also that this same energy is naturally transmitted to your core. Illuminate the fate homie.

I believe that while RBTO aims for that deeper, conscious tip; he has the ability to cross over to a wider audience. That's just my opinion, but you have to download and listen for yourself.

Finally, on a slightly less significant scale, but still worth mentioning, after a long hiatus (I can't even stress how long) from any sort of music-making, TheHinH's very own got back in the lab with Chrizo. Who else? He was the producer I collaborated with on my very first solo track back in 2006 and shoot, if it ain't broke, don't fix it right? The fact that we've both matured musically and that our studio sesh was pretty much an impromptu one, resulted in a very fluid outcome. No over-thinking, no pressure...this track is very special to me.

You'll hear this real soon.

So there you have it. Amid certain problems in the atmosphere, what has been tried as tested as a solution again and again  For myself and my readers, it is Hip Hop to be exact that keeps us afloat.  I figured an audience is more receptive to a solution rather than a problem so let us focus on that solution.  Let us ensure that Hip Hop prevails...

Enjoy the rest of your week fam!
