When in the music industry, it is often difficult to identify yourself from others. Everyone seems to always be moving in the same direction and most don't find the courage to step out of line. But with rapper, Mike Check, he has continuously proven the difference in the music that he creates and the night of his EP release party, he proved that all over again.
D.Chamberz latest project #LOVELIFE has been creating some noteworthy buzz around NYC. Today D.Chamberz drops the third single from that project, titled "What's It Gon Be". With this track D.Chamberz gives his listeners another side of the mixtape. "What's It Gon Be" features SmokeGang Mac and is produced by R.T. Productions. Be sure to download #LOVELIFE, available exclusively on DatPiff.com. Also check out the BTS footage from D.Chamberz second single "CAN'T BUY LOVE" below.
This week instead of a new audio single, we are dropping a music video from the Brother Jones album that released this past December. Brother Jones; the Las Vegas duo; I.C. Jonez and Doc Jones take an old school Hip Hop vibe and flip it with some gospel lyrics.
The video, directed by Camacho of Flawless Visuals, was shot in New London, a grimy, freezing spot where barren streets and a chilling climate lend to the viciousness and energy of the track. “Everything ties into the song,” says Hayze, “because the song’s about how life is hard all the time but you gotta keep it pushing.” With a treatment from Apathy, the video shows the two rappers, despite the generational difference, coming together to represent their shared Connecticut roots. "It's special just knowing that I have a video with Apathy,” said Hayze. "That’s huge for a kid from a small town."
