Kweku Collins ft. Jamila Woods | Ego Killed Romance

Nat Love. April 8th.

18-year-old Chicago rapper Kweku Collins is set to drop his new album Nat Love next week. The young spitter built a healthy buzz for himself off the strength of his excellent EP Say It Here, While It’s Safe last year. “Ego Killed The Romance” is his latest offering off the new album, and it features Jamila Woods, whose beautiful voice graced both “Sunday Candy” and (ugh) “White Privilege II.”

The track opens with a slow grand piano progression that’s out of tune and out of time on purpose before a rumbling, vibrant synth bass comes in along with tribal drums and Collins’ contemplative sing-song flow. His lyrics are vivid and cosmic; he paints a loose space travel narrative opening with “Crash landed on Mars, on my way to the sun” before bringing things back to earth to lament how he can’t provide what his love wants from him. Woods comes in with an infectious melody and Collins speeds up his flow in his second verse for more stream-of-consciousness relationship confessionals. The balance of the heavy synth and drums, and high piano hits is perfect for Collins to zoom in and out on relationships looking at them from outer space and then placing himself vulnerably in the thick of them. Check it out. - via Stereo Gum

V!SUAL | Break Away ft. Tony Centrino | Prod. by DJ Mo Murda

Artist, activist, educator V!SUAL has premiered today his latest song, "Break Away."

The song features Tony Centrino and it is an example of V!SUAL's socially conscious Hip Hop, with bars touching on a slew of topics including his hometown's notoriously violent reputation, countered with his own efforts to reverse that descent and steer Chicago into a better direction. The tune's production goes through many evolution's, effortlessly packing together elements of Rap and Rock.

"Break Away" is taken from the Chicago rapper's forthcoming project, The Ambassador, which is slated to arrive in Spring of 2016 via, Community Service Records. The project totals 10 tracks, each one including a feature by mostly unknown, on-the-rise artists. A variety of different producers are contributing to The Ambassador as well, as they aid V!SUAL to deliver his political and progressive message.

Speaking on the meaning behind the project title:

"I chose "The Ambassador" because I have been a proponent of Chicago culture and a contributor for a long time. I have always been progressive about my ideas and helping new artists, I take pride in helping my city grow. I believe "the hater" mentality among several other ideas are old and it's time for new ideas. I'm choosing to be a leader in cultivating these ideas"
