Vice Souletric – “Stayin Out The Way” ft. Skyzoo

Hip-Hop double-threat Vice Souletric showcases his effortless cool on laid-back new single, “Stayin’ Out The Way” with some help from Brooklyn wordsmith, Skyzoo. In discussing the creation of the track for his new LP, ‘Vice For President 2,’ Vice said that he “wanted to present a really chill, lounge vibe so I hit up the coolest cat I know, Skyzoo.” Indeed, whether on his own or as a guest feature, Sky brings that a swagger all his own. And he puts it on full display with a slick-talkin’ first verse that perfectly complements Vice’s head-noddin’ instrumental.

Attention: All Black Super Bowl Viewers

New year new us. You had to know this was coming. I am working on new music (which is coming soon), but I could not help but stop and take time out to chop it up with my brothers and sisters in this digital paradise we call social media and address the elephant, rhinoceros, and giraffe that will be entering all of our living rooms this Sunday evening. After spending an exhausting 20 weeks of “protesting” and “boycotting” the National Football League’s regular season and playoff television schedule, we, with the timing of a Dave Chapelle punchline, slide ride back […]

No Tomorrow [Official Video]

‘Vice for President 2’ (iTunes): http://apple.co/1m96zPz Equal parts throwback and modern, “No Tomorrow” is a soulful, undeniable banger from rapper­-producer Vice Soulectric. It also just so happens to be the driving force behind his latest video. Fresh off last Friday’s release of ‘Vice For President 2’ LP, Vice teamed up with fellow Buckeye State resident Ced Lynch for these sharp, stylish visuals. They center on the artist’s hustle, as we catch glimpses of his writing process, sample­chopping skills, and moments in the studio laying down vocal tracks. It’s all in a day’s work for Vice aka “Clark Kent with the dark […]

5 Things Hip Hop Needs to Leave in 2017

There are three  more weeks left in one of the most tumultuous years in the history of this planet (is that too dramtic?).We have lost so many great people, and some of the most unpredictable events have taken place in the world of entertainment, sports, and of course politics. With that being said, there are a few things in my humble opinion that do not need to follow us across the threshold of 2018. Poorly Thrown Shows – It seems to get worse and worse every year. Maybe the advent of of online show promotion has something to do with […]

Which Emcee has the Best Ear for Beats in Hip Hop?

Beats are a crucial element to any Hip Hop track. Most times it is a make or break element to not only the song, but how we view and value the artist using it. Over the span of Hip Hop music there have been several classics made that stand squarely on the shoulders of the beat alone. Sometimes the artist can actually take a backseat to the beat. I’m not going to place any examples as to not offend any of my favorite artists, BUT IT HAPPENS. So who has the best ear for beats? Which artists always seem to […]

[Hip Hop Head Poll] Will the final ATCQ album truly mark the end of an era?

I was on Instagram Thursday evening scrolling through a myriad of memes, ratchedness, quotes and videos. I kept scrolling past a the same white image with graph style writing on it maybe 20 times before it hit me to take a second to actually stop and see what this is everyone was posting. Well here it is if you have been sleeping under a rock (or just a Hip Hop fiend such as myself). Hip Hop fans throughout the world rejoiced at the news that the darling group of the 90s, A Tribe Called Quest, was returning with one more […]
