Hip Hop Artist Illa Ghee Releases Latest Project "Vocabulary Hercules"

Illa Ghee – “Vocabulary Hercules”

Keeping it simple but still driving the point, Illa Ghee is the Vocabulary Hercules.

There is strength in simplicity”

— Illa Ghee

BROOKLYN, NEW YORK, USA, September 24, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Imor Entertainment is thrilled to announce the release of hip-hop recording artist Illa Ghee's latest album. The project is a reminder to listeners that his mastery of storytelling remains the crux of his talent and being. Never short for words or experiences, Illa Ghee continues to focus on making music that is painfully honest.

This album is a departure from previous works, which were heavy laden with complex rhyme schemes, hidden references, similes, and obscure metaphors. "VOCABULARY HERCULES" is the realization that story telling can be straight forward and still highly impactful. In a previous work, "The Whole Half of It", Illa Ghee was cautious about relaying details of a complicated upbringing in the streets. In contrast, this was the exploration and finding freedom in speaking freely without restraints or the need to make knotty. What hasn’t changed in this project is Illa’s verbal dexterity, uncanny sense of humor, and his gritty unapologetic delivery of his life experiences.

The album showcases production by Crummie Beats, Jewels Polaar, INTLMC, Preach, Audible Doctor, Tru Mentillz, and Black Milk. When it came to selecting the tracks, it was important to Illa Ghee that listeners had something to nod their heads and still be able to focus on the lyrics.

"Vocabulary Hercules" is now available on all streaming platforms. Stream "Gold Soap" the lead single on iTunes or watch the video on YouTube. For more about Illa Ghee's music, merch, and other content, visit his website.

HIP Video Promo presents: Tae Wall premieres "Billie Jeane" video on Hip Hop Weekly

Tae Wall's "Billie Jeane" is not a cover. But the glittering spirit of Michael Jackson hovers over the entire song.

CLEVELAND, OH, USA, September 24, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — HIP HOP WEEKLY PREMIERE: HHW World Premiere Tae Wall “Billie Jeane”

The influence of Michael Jackson on contemporary hip-hop isn't discussed very much, but it's a hard thing to overestimate. Jackson's sense of melody and time, his cadences, his relationship to the beat, his knack for presentation, and his distinctive fashions: all of that has left an indelible impression on rappers, DJs, and producers. Tae Wall's "Billie Jeane" is not a cover — it's a series of hard rhymes, tight verses, and instantly memorable hooks of the rapper's own invention. But the glittering spirit of Michael Jackson hovers over the entire song.

And in ways both subtle and overt, Tae Wall's mesmerizing new track invokes Jackson's game-changing 1982 hit. Billboard Hip-Hop said "His stage presence is filled with tremendous energy, excitement and stamina. He is a true master of ceremony." The eight-note signature bass line that runs through the verses of Jackson's "Billie Jean" is present here in a slightly modified but still recognizable shape. The music splits the difference between modern trap production and golden age '80s R&B. Most of all, Wall slips into Jackson's unforgettable melodic flow for a late stanza. When he does, the Cleveland, Ohio rapper sounds right at home.

The new track is a worthy successor to "Scholarship," his thunderous summer '21 collaboration with hip-hop legend Jadakiss. "Scholarship" was a demonstration of all of Tae Wall's strengths — his scene-setting storytelling, his easy-going erudition, his wit, his unerring sense of drama, and his deep grounding in hip-hop history. It's not surprising that an artist like that would be drawn to the work of Michael Jackson, and "Billie Jeane" makes good on all of his ambitions. It's danceable, swaggering, a little menacing, irresistibly catchy, a little funky, simultaneously street-tough and pop-sweet. In other words, it's just like Michael Jackson used to do it.

The mix of "Billie Jeane" shows that Tae Wall knows all about Michael Jackson's music. The video for the song proves he understands just as much about Michael Jackson's style. He appears in the clip with the angled, wide-brimmed fedora, the sequined jacket with the rhinestone armband, the crisp v-neck t-shirt, and, of course, the single glove. He doesn't appear as Michael Jackson in all of the shots — just a strategic few, meant to underscore the themes of the song and its relationship with Jackson's classic. Most of the time, he perches on the trunk of a sleek Camaro convertible with its top down, in a red bandana and rocking gold chains, delivering his energetic verses with absolute confidence.

HIP Video Promo presents: Custom premieres "Rock Mics Properly" on The Hype Magazine

Custom photo

Not only is Custom bringing flavor and intensity with "Rock Mics Properly," he's also calling for MCs to bring skill back into the art of music-making.

CHICAGO, IL, USA, September 24, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — THE HYPE MAGAZINE PREMIERE: Custom – Rock Mics Properly

Rap music today can start to sound generic when it consists of the same story repurposed and repackaged over and over again against a drill beat. Here to shift the narrative, boom-bap rapper Custom hits the studio intending to bring message and substance back to the rap game. The artist pens his story and experiences to draw attention to what truly matters, the reality of life. Not only is Custom bringing flavor and intensity with his new song "Rock Mics Properly," he's also calling for MCs to bring skill back into the art of music-making.

Authenticity and realness are hard to come by, but Custom bears his life experiences in full transparency in his music video for "Rock Mics Properly." The opening scene shows Custom taking a drag out of his cigar with a gun in his hand as he heads over to a church. Here, within the walls of the house of prayer, he lays his soul on the track by discussing the hardships of living through trying situations. As he burns through his verses, the video is intercut with cityscapes and the rapper performing in an empty lot, proving that Custom isn't about the flashy videos; he's about the emotional rawness of his lyrics. In "Rock Mics Properly," Custom addresses trauma, political commentary, and what makes him a stand-out rapper against the competition.

We Are The West, Acclaimed Folk Band, Returns to Live Concert in the San Francisco Bay

We Are The West

"Beautiful, cinematic folk. Their live show is just a feast for the eyes and the ears." – NPR's Here & Now

LOS ANGELES, CA, UNITED STATES, September 23, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — We Are The West has been achieving one success after another. After a series of 4 site-specific EPs, their lauded debut LP 'The Golden Shore', performing with David Bowie's band in his 'Celebrating David Bowie' world tour, releasing their newest album 'Only One Us' to vast critical acclaim, and providing the soundtrack for '2 Hearts' (#1 movie on Netflix, June 2021), they have now come back swinging heavy in the live concert circuit. The adventurous LA-based folk ensemble performed a special outdoor concert on the San Francisco Bay.

"It was a joy to venture out on our first little tour since the pandemic began, to play with and for our friends up north," states band leader Brett Hool. "There's simply nothing like singing as the sun goes down while the San Francisco Bay goes pink in the hidden gem of a cove that is Point San Pablo Harbor."

Specifically, the live concert was located at Point San Pablo Harbor in Richmond, California on Thursday, September 16, 2021. We Are The West is led by Brett Hool and John Kibler, and they were joined by Mathias Künzli (Regina Spektor, Yo-Yo Ma Silk Road Ensemble) on percussion and Jes Ivry (Feist, Father John Misty) on cello.

"The boats, the goats, the sculptures, but most of all the community of blanket-clad folks out to celebrate the beautiful things in life together. We can't wait to go back," concludes Hool.

They were invited by Conspiracy of Beards, the 30-member a cappella men's choir, to help inaugurate the new Live On The Waterfront series on the Point San Pablo Harbor stage.

Stay tuned for more updates for their concerts here: http://www.wearethewest.com/dates

We Are The West began way out east in a shipping container on a sheep farm in Holland, then inside a haunted convent in Brooklyn, before growing underground in a parking garage in Santa Monica where founders Brett Hool (voice, guitar) and John Kibler (upright bass, voice) host their renowned monthly concert series (“Feels like the wave of the future.” Los Angeles Magazine).

Favelli Enterprises – Arts & Entertainment for the Every World

Led By San Diego Hip Hop Artist Don Favelli, Company Plans to Enhance Music & Art Experiences with XR/AR/VR, Joins VRARA

SAN DIEGO, CA, USA, September 23, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Favelli Enterprises Inc., the art & entertainment company founded by San Diego hip hop artist Don Favelli, today announced its membership in the VR/AR Association, an international organization that supports stakeholders interested in the growth and use cases for extended reality (“XR”), virtual reality and augmented reality.

A lot still needs to be imagined with XR technologies, but in the end it will be no less revolutionary.”

“You see some push back on the idea of metaverses or the value of owning a digital asset such as an NFT,” says Favelli. “But younger generations are already accustomed to meeting friends in virtual gaming worlds, and they don’t think twice about the value of ‘digital assets’ in these environments.”

Favelli Enterprises is keeping its eye on numerous technology trends in augmented reality, immersive virtual reality, holograms, enhanced spatial audio, 5G, smart glasses and headsets, digital asset exchange markets and blockchain. Favelli believes that the pandemic has accelerated the embrace of digital experiences across multiple industries, and emerging technologies are creating a tipping point for more widespread availability and usage.

“What we need now are players who are willing to envision and implement innovative experiences and expand on those that positively impact where and how we live, work, learn, travel and play. Favelli Enterprises is committed to being at the forefront of defining how we combine technologies from the real world and digital world to transform the experience of art and music for artists, designers, performers and their supporters.”

'Outlaw' Country Artist Sean Holcomb & Southern Skye Records Pick Sony's Orchard for My Way or the Highway Album Release

My Way or the Highway, new 6-track EP from Sean Holcomb

Vintage country breakthrough artist partners with Sony Music subsidiary the Orchard to distribute upcoming new six-track EP on all platforms October 1st, 2021.

Holcomb charms crowds with his soulful voice and outright honest lyrics.”

— Byron Harris, Indie Spoonful

NASHVILLE, TN, UNITED STATES, September 23, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Nashville’s Southern Skye Records and vintage ‘Outlaw’ country artist Sean Holcomb announce the release of Holcomb’s new six-track album EP, My Way or the Highway, set to be unleashed officially through the Orchard — a subsidiary of Sony Music — on all major platforms October 1, 2021. A former Colorado ranch hand and Florida native, Holcomb cuts through the Nashville country clutter with My Way or the Highway, weaving together the artist’s soulful songwriting, heart-tingling vocals, foot-stomping guitar abilities, irresistible personality and head-turning stage presence together in one delightfully authentic, ‘fresh-vintage’ country music package.

Working with Grammy-nominated producer & Music City Collective CEO, Billy Smiley, My Way or the Highway is currently being promoted nationwide, with the newly released tracks already receiving positive responses among PlayMPE’s TOP 5 downloaded and streamed songs. Delivering emotionally charged songs like “American Dream,” tailor-made for the times we are in, the irresistible vocal and instrumental blend of the album’s title track “My Way or the Highway,” Holcomb’s incredible writing signature on “Let You Leave,” the heart-puller “Drinking for Two,” and the unapologetic anthem “South of the South,” Sean Holcomb is an artist and songwriter worth standing up for in today’s world of endless musical redundancy.

Rising popularity has come as no surprise to the Orlando native’s devoted Central Florida following. In addition to several pending national songwriter nominations, 2021 readers once again named Sean Holcomb the number one “Best Country Act” in Orlando Weekly’s “Best of Orlando 2021.” The top ranking marks the second time since 2019 that Holcomb has been named to the number one spot, and his fourth consecutive time in the top three. (https://www.orlandoweekly.com/orlando/best-country-act/BestOf?oid=2986161)

With a tour schedule averaging over 250 shows a year, Holcomb is no stranger to the road. In a short time he has shared the stage with names such as John Anderson, Daryle Singletary, Rhett Akins, Lucero, Kenny Chesney, Mo Pitney, The Cadillac Three, LoCash, Thomas Rhett, and many more. Often compared to the likes of Chris Stapleton, Jamey Johnson, and Travis Tritt, Holcomb is bringing a fresh ‘old’ vibe to country music with his original songwriting and a distinctive sound best described as a blend of ‘vintage country,’ Americana and country-rock.

The perfect combination of grit and grace, Holcomb’s true-to-life cowboy persona is as real as it gets. His thoughtful lyrics are laced with honest perspective from his lessons in love, loss, life, redemption, and yes — sometimes splashed with the alcohol-infused energy and modest swagger of a rising star. Sean Holcomb’s music can be found on all major streaming platforms (Apple/iTunes, Spotify, Amazon Music, YouTube); visit seanholcomb.com for additional shows and ways to connect.

Whisky Jennings Bryan Releases New Album Rattlesnake Crawl

Album Art for Rattlesnake Crawl

Rollocking six song release unites WJB with noted Canadian talent for an ode to the West

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, September 23, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — WHISKY JENNINGS BRYAN throws a rope around friends and collaborators to create a fresh group of songs for a new record, RATTLESNAKE CRAWL now available on Spotify, Apple Music. Concentrating on a core of western themes, Whisky writes about the desert and our relationship with the vipers in life. Singing about loss and heartbreak, truth and lies, tenderness and fear, Whisky assembled a group that features powerhouse Canadian talent to create WJB’s follow-up to 2020’s ALL WE NEED.

Coming back for Whisky's third record is CAM GIROUX on drums (Weeping Tile, Suzie Ungerleider). Cam brings a sonic boom through his full “Four on the Floor” approach to each and every song. His dynamics and groove set the pace and power for the record.

STEPHEN HAMM (Slow, TankHog, Canned Hamm, Theremin Man) picks up the bass duties for the entire record. Hamm was a cameo on Whisky’s previous record ALL WE NEED, but as he stretches out on this recording, his artistry really shines.

New to the collaboration is SUZIE UNGERLEIDER, the award-winning folk singer, who previously recorded under the moniker Oh Susanna. She sings a duet with Whisky and fills that lonesome void with her powerful tenor.

PAUL PIGAT (Cousin Harley, Boxcar Campfire, and the Paul Pigat Trio) comes screaming out of the gate with a slide guitar solo on “My Last Respects” that should leave you clutching your pearls like a surprised debutante.

BRYDEN BAIRD (Blue Rodeo, Feist, Royal Wood) Lays down a solo on “Rattlesnake Crawl” that would make Tom Jones cry.

Most of the recording happened in Vancouver and Toronto, Canada. The record was mixed by Scott Barber at the Barbershop in Echo Park, California, with mastering by Philip Shaw Bova, a Grammy nominated engineer in Ottawa.

The rollicking record snakes along the desert side road beckoning with toe-tapping songs that come with a poisonous bite:

MY LAST RESPECTS, is an forthright and fervent crash through the horse corral gates, breaking out into the wild open western landscape. The search for love in a new wilderness.

The secret hideaway we all crave, away from spying eyes and devilish tongues has turned into a carnival ride. The Ferris wheel takes you up into the sky, filled with dreams and endless possibilities. SPIN AROUND as you hold on to the myth of privacy.

RATTLESNAKE CRAWL expresses a desire for human connection in the most honest and fragile way. The shaking rattle from the viper’s tale seduces – come closer, and closer until the bite fulfills on the poison promise.

After years of being bit and somehow surviving, one becomes immune. Not only immune, but strangely drawn to empty words to fill a wounded soul. If you LIE TO ME AGAIN, is a promise to act boldly, but will we?

MAMA GONE CRAZY is a measure of an emotional life. The crazy we all sustain brings loss and joy, failure and rebirth. The tender moments of bliss. The frightened moments of dread.

Left alone to stare at the desert sky sitting inside a JOSHUA TREE SALOON, one grapples with the empty space calling out to be filled. We struggle to know each other on the deepest level, but fight the impulse to do so with every ounce of strength we have.

Released alongside the album is a Music Video for “MY LAST RESPECTS”.
