Marcellus Juvann – The Great Escape(Mixtape)


The bottle-inverted-yields the final drop of life’s intoxicating elixir, freedom. She had drank all the spirits; her money low as her spirit. Music is her last vice left. ‘The Great Escape’ became a way out of the deep end she had fallen into. Marcellus Juvann’s album is “as country as Cornbread, Collard Greens, and Ham Hocks”. The Houston native cooks up 50s’ hard bop jazz from New Orleans with present day boom bap hiphop. It’s as if John Coltrane’s spiritual juke and jive with the impetuous styles of Marcellus and his feature artists: Bria Zhanae, Adj-b, Kaiydo, and LB199X. The productions of JimmyB Beats, Kountdown, Eyezlow, and Jayze Johnson create a speakeasy; piano notes stride, horns stroll, and percussions bop jovially on its disco. Marcellus’ religious undertones in his verses take ahold, delivering her from the deep end. Spirit lifted she sits back and allows the music to ease her mind for another escape.

CRIMSON-..conception(LP)
From birth to death. From Alpha to Omega. Each beginning has its end. The glorious Phoenix scoffs at this misconception. CAP 6 emcee, CRIMSON, thrives within the cycle of chaotic chords, unearthly synths, and bombastic percussions in his nebulous LP '..conception'.

Kaiydo’s Tasteful New Song “Fruit Punch” Is An Enjoyable Blend Of 808s & Horns Produced By Josh December
Life handed Kaiydo lemons in which he squeezes into his red Solo cup. Producer Josh December fills that cup with plump percussions, tasteful trombones, and an ounce of sharp synths for a refreshing single, 'Fruit Punch'.
