I’m still getting familiar with Ill Camille’s music and the journey is a pleasure. Ill Camille has been dope for a while now, (check her SoundCloud and youtube) but I first heard on a Team Backpack cypher about a month or so ago and I’ve checked out several of her dope tracks. Today, I saw the link to Ill Camille’s “São Paulo” track on my timelime and I’ve listened to it about five times since then. This track features TDE’s Punch and singer/songwriter Rose Gold. “São Paulo” delivers a strong spring/summertime vibe and makes you either crave for the visuals for this track or makes you wanna go outside to soak up the warmth of the sunshine. Ill Camille, I am so glad your lyricism found my ears. Y’all enjoy!
Sometimes I think Team Backpack (you know THAT awesome youtube channel which I found this video on) just houses all the dope emcees and artists… Listen and enjoy!
“Soulciety is just everyday simple folks just sharing lovely music with the world.”
Soulciety was born from the collaborative creative efforts of 4 artists from Lagos, Nigeria – singer Freeborn, rap duo Avalanche & Tafa, and producer DG Mastered. The group recently released their project “We;Soulciety”. “We;Soulciety” is an excellent collection of tracks that includes soul, jazz, neo soul, hip hop, spoken word, poetry, alternative/contemporary sounds and of course the rhythmic sounds of native drumbeats as heard on their track “Omi”. My personal favorite (which you can listen to below) is “Peace”. On this sultry jazzy track, Freeborn masterfully channels a liitle Erykah Badu and a little Jill Scott as she belts out beautiful vocals that are all her own. So, if you are in the mood to sit back and unwind, I suggest you grab some wine and listen to Soulciety. Enjoy!
“We; Soulciety” is also available on iTunes.
He’s the biological son of Al B. and the adopted son of Diddy, but we all know he IS Quincy. Quincy the model, singer, songwriter, director, photographer, actor and current heart throb/community activist on Fox’s hit musical drama “Star”. Recently, Quincy released his independent project “This Is For You” on Valentine’s Day. The project’s tracks cover the “usual suspects” that make relationships both good and complicated as demonstrated on the remake of his father’s classic “I Can Tell You (Night and Day 2.o)” and the popular “Late Night Flex”. Although Mr. Al B. Sure lends his own distinctive falsetto to his remake, the track that really grabbed my attention is “Me Time” produced by DJ Corbett. On “Me Time”, Quincy stresses the importance of taking time out from himself while still being loyal to the one he loves. However, it’s the conviction in his vocals and the slow guitar tempo that makes this track a beautiful ballad for “him” – although it screams “this is for the benefit of you” too.” Yep, men have get up in their zone sometimes – so, we hear ya’ Quincy. “This Is For You” is now available on iTunes. And the link to “Me Time” is below for your listening pleasure. Enjoy!
