Since his initial impact in the hip-hop game Wiz Khalifa has basically reinvented himself several times over. His Taylor Gang posse is of hip-hop’s up and coming. These days, he’s on the road with the Bay Area’s HBK crew on that Under The Influence of Music Tour. Here’s a new joint called “Everything,” which is a mix of Taylor and HBK cronies; IAMSU. Wiz, JR Donato, Kool John and Berner. Expect more to come as the tour winds through a city near you.
An abundance of socially-charged music has hit the airwaves in the wake of the unfortunate passings of Eric Gardner and Michael Brown at the hands of police. J Cole‘s new song “Free” really exposes a different a side to Fayetteville NC’s favorite son. Though not on the level of Public Enemy’s “Fight The Power,” “Free” is more of a salute to the struggle for justice. More importantly, hip-hop is bringing awareness.
On the R&B side of things, Jeremih has been working hard on his upcoming release. His latest joint “Show Me” gets an assist from Maybach Music Maestro Omarion. Though I’ve never been a huge fan of 2 R&B singers performing together on the same track, when done right it can result in great music. “Show Me” has that feel but time will tell how far this stretches.
