INTERVIEW WITH DJ LANCE

Recently I was blessed to interview a dj who I have always been inspired by musically, my father, DJ Lance.

My father’s djing career spans over 30 plus years! Even my first memories of my dad was him, his turn tables, and hella records! I could’ve interviewed any other Dj, but no one truly inspired me the most like my dad. Every one has a story and I wanted his story to be told from his beginnings in Akron, OH to his life now as Pastor Bell!

I definitely enjoyed hearing about the very first time he had a dj gig while stationed in Alaska! Believe me when I say from that very first gig, he blew up like smoke….literally!! LOL Check out part 1 of his interview below!!

Stay tuned for Part 2!!!

NEW MUSIC FRIDAYS

Hey guys! Im back with my introspective on some of the new music releases that has come out recently!! I hope all is well with everyone especially since summer is officially over, and if you are like me, you will be so glad see it back again next year! But, in the mean time check out some dope music to vibe to in the process.

COMMON – LET LOVE

https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

One of the most sexiest males in rap history who is better known as Common dropped an album that truly had me see a different side to him. Like I felt as if I was seeing right thru him! I seen an interview that he did explaining that he his goal was to be totally transparent with this album. He mentioned that he has been seeing a therapist to help deal with his own past/current issues, and this album gave him the voice to truly put his vulnerability out there! Ladies, it’s not often that a man will be transparent with his thoughts,and since Common is such a talent when it comes to his lyrics, listening to this album will allow you to see this artist for face value. Dope album!

SIR – CHASING SUMMER

https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

The label TDE is know for having talented artists like Kendrick Lamar, SZA, and Schoolboy Q just to name a few, and singer, SIR, is another one you can add to the list! I swear he reminds me of some of the late 90’s r&b artists who not only could sang, but also told familiar stories of relationships, love and heartbreak. What sets SIR out to be different is his delivery…make sure to pay attention to what he is singing about I bet you will love this album, and it will be on repeat!

LIL TECCA – WE LOVE YOU TECCA

https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

Can you imagine being a regular teenager from New York than BOOM you drop a project that people like Dj Akademiks are speaking nothing but positive words towards it?? Well…I will say that’s Tecca’s life right now!! I literally never heard about him until he dropped this project. I will be paying attention now tho!! This project has dope beats and his delivery reminds me of that wavy music and I admit it’s lit!!

POST MALONE – HOLLYWOOD’S BLEEDING

https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

Post Malone dropped this new project that I can already assume will be doing numbers especially once more singles from off the album start to be on regular rotation. You know that same formula he worked on his last album. While being a hater I just could not deny the fact that he makes hits! Everyone is not lucky to say the same. It’s too early to speak on what this album will do, but stay tuned and watch his magic flow.

CHARLI XCX – CHARLI

https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

I love pop artists who love to collaborate with hip hop artists to create real dope ass music! Charli XCX is that type of artist who stays very consistent with that formula! This woman has worked with the Migos guys and the single still was LIT! I definitely love the album especially the album cover! I see you girl! Her album is something you can listen to with your kids in the car, and if you have teens they are most likely jamming right with you too! I can tell her subject matter has matured from the last project as well as a more rough around the edges type of style! I think she is all around dope, and her music and this album reflects that!

GASHI – GASHI

https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

Gashi is a new artist that i believe will be gaining more clout going into the new year. He’s a New York artist, but his style sounds way more upbeat and energy driven. I can see him being a crowd pleaser as well has the hood clubs turn up captain in the summer. I truly like his energy! Hopefully he stays consistent so we can hear more of him in 2020!

BOOSIE BADAZZ – BAD AZZ DAY

https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

Whoever told Boosie to hook up with producer Zaytoven was smart!! I am amazed that no one has told him this before. This whole project is dope! Boosie gives you his normal Louisiana bounce music while also dropping knowledge for the youngstas on other songs too! Y’all just do not understand that I am truly his fan, and I loved the fact that I had this project on repeat for almost 2 weeks straight!!! This project is definitely a must hear!!!

MAKE SURE TO FOLLOW ME ON ALL SOCIAL MEDIA SITES TO SEE MORE OF MY DOPEST PICS OF NEW RELEASED MUSIC!!!!

New Music Fridays

On August 23, 2019 was one of the best days for new music. The reason why I say that?? OMG!!! It had nothing but great and the most anticipated releases I can say for the year, and as I list them I bet you an 100 that you will think so too! I mean literally from every genre it was nothing but dope ass music released!!!
Let’s start with one of my favorite groups of million men Brockhampton!

BROCKHAMPTON – GINGER

https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

You can not beat a group that’s filled with nothing but guys who literally are dope ass lyricists, and anytime they drop a project it is literally worth the listen. The album “Ginger” may not hold up to their previous project, but I still enjoyed it never the less. I truly love when the production does not overshadow the voices telling a story. As a listener I feel that you can overall get what you expected from this album.

MISSY ELLIOTT – ICONOLOGY

https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

What can I say about Missy “Misdeamenor” Elliott???? OMG…the fact that I am truly a fan and has been one since the 90’s. The fact that I was one of the first people in line at the music store waiting to buy her first solo debut back in the fall of 97…yes…I am completely dating myself but so whaaatt!!! Thaty woman deserves it all! From artist, to songwriter, to producer, to innovator, to just being a dope person overall she is the epitome of what I had aspired to be back as a kid…a song writer/producer. This Ep included only 4 tracks, but to have not heard anything new from Missy in a few years, literally was a breath of fresh air! Trust me when I say that when a person has mastered there craft, regardless of how long it seems that they have been away, when they return, it feels like they never left!

RAPHAEL SAADIQ – JIMMY LEE

https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

One of the original member’s from the group Tony, Toni, Tone also the group Lucy Pearl even was featured on Alicia Keys classic “Diary” the list goes on and on of the classic work Raphael has put in! Just like Missy, this man has many talents too which sustained him for all this time! Mind you his original group came out in 1989!! This new album “Jimmy Lee” tells a story of a man who is going through some ups and downs in his life, but the way Raphael constructed this album you would think that it was just a jazz piece..oh no! It’s a story told from the soul, and I believe that some parts of it is a true recollection of Raphael’s memories of one his older brother who is currently deceased.

RAPSODY – EVE

https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

Can I just put it out there that this is a Grammy winning album already?? I am just saying LOL Rapsody literally made an album with each song titled, and spoken about powerful Black women!! Ladies Stand Up!! I can not stress how much I truly believed that the year of 2019 is for the women, and this album proves all of it! From the surprising features like J. Cole and Queen Latifah to how Rapsody lyrically breaks down her thoughts very meticulously about each individual truly had hit my soul. Do beleive that this album has been played literally too many times in my car so for right now I had to give it a break!! LOL

I can go on for days about the rest of the albums that was released that day, but I do not want to bore you guys! Check out the rest of my picks below.

New Music Fridays

Hey guys! It’s your girl Mz Slimgoody back with my reviews on some of the most recent New Music Friday’s releases!! I hope everyone is doing well…for me…I have my head filled all in music, and working on something new for the Mz Slimgoody brand so make sure to stay tuned!!!

Some of the music I am going to talk about in this post I had to go back and listen to more than once to gain a better perspective of these projects to give a real opinion. Starting with Uncle Snoop!! I call him uncle for I see him as my uncle in my head LOL came out with a dope project last month!

SNOOP DOGG – I WANNA THANK ME

https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

Snoop’s album sounds like a self reflection as well as analyzing the present around him, and putting it into words. Of course Snoop already has a way with words that tells a vivid story so imagine a mature Snoop really breaking his thoughts down on dope beats makes a great project to me!

QUALITY CONTROL – CONTROL THE STREETS VOL.2

https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

If you guys know anything about me you will know that I extremely love the Quality Control label from their structure, marketing, even production!! On this project it starts off with QC’s top hittas the Migos, Lil Yachty, and others..you will start to hear the newbies from the label towards the end of the album…mind you this album has over 20 songs! So you truly had to keep the patience to even get down to hear those tracks LOL Overall I love the project…It’s what I expected to hear from them even though I thought a Migos album would’ve came prior to this, at least this project will keep me patiently waiting until they do! Gucci Mane made a guest appearance on the project complete with dope beats, hard lyrical flow, and even hot girl summer anthems, QC will never lose!

RJMRLA – ON GOD

https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

This man right here is tight with the flows, with straight West coast productions, but hard tho!! I swear I will not be quiet about him until I hear people in Cleveland playing his music LOL I was wondering when he was going to come out with something new for the last project was back in 2017!! Thank you RJ for shutting me up! RJ always seems to come with dope features, and with this project you can tell that he has grown or I should say lived life…enough life to have more stories to tell, but with depth starting with the first track “On God” allows you to get ready for a RJ that you didn’t hear from his other projects..oh no… he was making sure that not only his fans will know that he plans on staying!

YOUNG THUG – SO MUCH FUN

https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

I swear there are some artists that no matter what they do…I see nothing wrong!! Young Thug is that guy! For the last year we have been getting to know his Slime partners from Lil Keed to Lil Gotit and others, but kept wondering when will Thugger drop?? God answers all prayers, and sent “So Much Fun”. This prject from beginning to the end is FUN! I mean if I was to throw a party I can add this album to my playlist and I swear the party will start to get LIT! I notice alot of people love the track that has Lil Baby featured on it. This project is truly a must listen, and has already been placed on the charts top 10!!!

BLAQ TUXEDO – BLAQ TUXEDO

https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

This was my first time ever hearing of this group whose project is titled the same name as the group has gained a new fan. Sometimes when you think of 2 guys who seem to be an R&B duo actually come with dope content that everyone can relate to as well as very groovy… I swear you find yourself very intrigued! I started to stalk there Instagram pages an everything LOL I believe this duo may be around for awhile so stay tuned!

New Music Fridays

Hey guys!!! I hope everyone’s week is going well! For me….this has been one of the fastest weeks ever that did not include a holiday in it!! LOL I have been checking out a lot of music lately as well as replaying some albums so I can give a better review on them, and with a lot of albums it’s best to listen more than once to truly give a honest opinion. Starting with Drake’s release of singles he has put out before but were never featured on an album that as of 2 weeks ago was #1 on the charts! The album included some favorite singles such as “The Motion” or “Trust Issues” that brought back so many memories from when I used to play those singles 24/7 while being in my emotions…ya know that “Drake feeling”.
OJ Da Juiceman always stays dropping heat for the streets, check out his new project! BJ The Chicago Kid out did himself on this new project!! I found myself replaying & singing along with every song! BJ is so soulful and came with songs that you can relate to especially those relationship type of songs. Lil Durk’s new project is dope! He is giving me that type of feeling that he will be around for a while. I didn’t get hip to him until 2014, but even 5 years later he still got it, and I believe that there is so much more to him.
Rick Ross finally dropped part 2 to his original debut album, and he is currently holding the #1 spot!!! Rick Ross “The BOSS” always comes with his mafia music vibe while revealing more of himself with this album. He spoke on his previous health issues, and regular life struggles that he has been dealing with while also offering fun tracks to vibe to. Sauce Walka has a new project that I can say is decent…I can’t say much for I am wondering if he is trying to come with a more mature style than before. For example, Sauce Walka projects are mainly about pimping, but from what I heard off the recent project I am getting a feeling of him telling stories in a different perspective that still is reminiscent of his original style…I just got to hear more!!
Ugly God & Trippie Redd also dropped!!! I do have to listen more to Trippie’s new project for he is yelling on this album which is different, but refreshing! Trippie always delivers very good work thus far! I just think he is showing his fans a different side which can lead to people with less expectations of what they THINK a Trippie Redd album should be! Ugly God never disappoints, and his style is so different than others…meaning that he has a mixture of dope rhymes & beats, but you must listen to what he say…don’t get caught up with his name!!
Check out all the other releases below!!!

Pompano Runna Interview

On the last episode of Hit or Miss Sundays Ms Cream, Dj Raven, Dayson, and I had the pleasure to have artist, Pompano Runna, as a featured guest on our show! During the interview we listened and voted on three dope tracks that sounded completely different from each other, but allowed us to feel the many depths of Pompano. On the track “Cool Young Nigga” I swear we all voted the track as an “hit” all at the same time. I could imagine deceased rapper, Bankroll Fresh on the track. The other 2 tracks we played, “Dedicated” and “Drippin” are dope too! We did have a moment mimicking his Florida slang LOL me and Cream kept saying “whoop de whoo” LOL

Pompano dropped some real gems during the interview to pay attention to, and even tho he rocks out like a rock star, he speaks well enough to be taken serious & to be understood. I have a feeling that we will be hearing more from this artist very soon!! Check out the rest of the interview below!

Make sure to follow Pompano @pompanorunna_ on all social media platforms!!
