I decided to drop a lil something something for yall to bump.
I call this one “Letter to Tori” simply because its a fun song and its uplifting a hometown model Tori Brixx. I was originally going to name it after this bird ass chick but the universe diverted my attention to someone more worthy haha. You know how that shxt go!
anywho, the song was produced by Blair Norf and features my friend YKK. If you belong to my email list (which you should be, but if you dont, drop your email in the comment section) you got the song exclusively yesterday. Shoutout to facebook for hating on me with the album artwork, saying its apparently too risque to promote but whatever, I aint changing it!
if you see/know ms. Tori, tell her I said hey, and that i hope shes not offended.
Yo, waddup! I wanna take the time out to give you an exclusive look of a new track from my upcoming project “Gate Keeper”, which will be a full length LP available for digital download this spring. This song is called “The List”. I consider this song my response to being snubbed from various hip hop discussions throughout the Dallas media. I felt that rather than complain about it via twitter and Facebook, I would take the hip hop approach and release my frustrations through music. With that being said, award winning video director and good friend of mine, Jeremy Biggers, lent his talents in helping me bring the song to life in a visual that encompasses my roots in both 90s hip hop and African American culture. With scenes reminiscent of Black Panther Party photos from the 70s fused with quintessential hip hop imagery of the 90s, I feel this music video accurately represents who I am and I hope that others can connect with my agenda to speak out against groups who refuse to acknowledge the realness that Killa is bringing in 2015.
Disclaimer: This song and video do contain profane language and it is not recommended that you blast the record at maximum volume levels while at your place of employment. Maximum volume is however recommended for homes, clubs, cars, bars and social hangouts.
Thank you for your continued support. If you should decide to share this video, please feel free to tag me on your social networks i.e. Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, under the name 88Killa.
I had to get my life together real quick so I can continue to live my raps. With that being said, I stumbled across this track while surfing the soundcloud labyrinth and it instantly provided a way for me to get some things off of my chest. I touched lightly on whats been going on with the group as well as tried to drop a few hints of the type of stuff ive been dealing with internally as of late. This song isn’t going on any project, but that doesnt mean that it shouldnt be added to your ipod. check it out and feel free to drop any questions/comments in the appropriate area!
Almost about a year ago during another routine recording session me and Ish had pretty much reached a dry period (pause). We were sitting in a room with Jeremy and his gf Sam exploring old beat catalogs that we’re pretty much collecting dust on Ish’s hard drive. Sam had mention that she used to dabble in spoken word poetry and had tried rapping a tad here and there but nothing serious ever came out of it. Before you know it, I talked Ish into whipping up a beat on the spot and began persuading her to really give it another try. Fast forward a couple of months and She’s now became a jane of all trades painting, designing, cutting, sewing, rapping, and performing. I’m proud to say that I was apart of this process so I want the whole world to feel the same way. Get her debut EP here!
