The Introduction: A New Artiste

This year has been a good one for the Arizona music scene. People have started to lend an ear to the many local artists grinding to make an impact with their music. But music isn’t the only thing that’s been moving in the city. People are making moves modeling, shooting photography, and even making movies! And then there are some people who just do multiple things. Stylz fits into this category. Continue reading The Introduction: A New Artiste

3MMR: Episode 43 – “Raindrops” by Zai Allday

Arizona, what’s good out in these streets. I been on the hunt for some new fire and found it in the form of “Raindrops” by the R&B sensation, Zai Allday.  This joint is catchy with smoky production (think drake-era “If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late”) and well laid vocals, giving it high replay value. The hook is a play on the song “Raindrops Keep Falling On My Head” by B.J. Thomas, and Zai sets fire from the jump singing, “Raindrops keep falling on my head now/ drippin and it’s wet now/ wave is super grow, yea/ it’s flowin, yea/”.  Zai glides easily over track with the rhythm and cadence of a skilled emcee who just so happens to be singing.

3MMR. Episode 42. Stoop Kid. “No Reply”

It’s that time again people! Wednesday is for Three Minute Music Reviews. Grab your pop corns and settle in because we got new Arizona music to get to. This week’s feature artist is Stoop Kid, and his drippy, trap-hop joint “No Reply”. “No Reply”, is contemporary hip hop at its best with its mechanical beat and simple hook: “fuck a op/ fuck a cop/ fuck a bitch in my shocks/ getting paid, getting guap/”. Stoop kid isn’t pushing the limits lyrically in any way, shape, or form, but he captures the “trap swag” vibe of the new era with his content, delivery, and beat selection.

3MMR: Episode 40 – “Do U Wanna” by Noah Wright

What’s good out there, Bird City!? It’s your boy, Bo, back with another sound bomb for your listening pleasure! We’re kicking off Week 40 with a review with the talented Noah Wright. His sex fueled hit, “Do U Wanna?”, finds Noah smoothly rhyming over a relaxed and mostly simple beat. The video, directed by the talented Tony Kure, is highly sexual and really catches the mood and vibe of the song, including some ill-advised pornographic moaning at the end of the video.
