Ladies and gentleman I present to you VIBES! This is a Hip Hop album by an american Rapper Theophilus London, whose Executive Producer is the mighty and legendary Kanye West, Yes! It will be released on the 4th of November and me? I am pretty excited about it for the following reasons;
1 It features the likes of Jesse Boykins III, Devnote hynes, Soko. and Leon Ware
2 I listened to one of the tracks in VIBES titled “Can’t Stop” which features a Kanye West verse which is reminiscent of the old school Kanye.
3 IT’S BY THEOPHILUS LONDON, Duh!! I’ve been waiting for this dude to release an album since Timez Are Weird These Days cause I was hooked to his stuff after hearing it.

So, if you want something different from what you usually hear on radio something with soul, meaning and VIBES I recommend that you get this album, also when you Pre order you get 3 tracks instantly;

Meet Raury Tullis who is always wearing a sunhat. His a young 18 year old from ATL (atlanta) and calls himself a perfectionist and from what I heard when listening to his Ep I agree. Inspired by the likes of kid Cudi, Bon Iver, Manchester Orchestra, Bloc Party, Tupac and gucci maine to name a few the kid makes great genuine music though iam not so sure of the genre he falls under it says alternative/indie on my music player. With his “Anti-tour” he’s been popping up on musician’s concerts while fans are still waiting in line and starts playing his set even though cops tend to stop him before he even gets to the lyrics this got him noticed by André 3000 and he booked Raury to open at Outkast’s homecoming show in September. Raury’s aim is to make music from the soul in an era where music from the soul is overlooked and to “better the world in a cool ass way” with that misic and from where iam standing iam pretty sure he will aslong as you don’t sleep on him.

Travis Scott released his long awaited sophomore album titled ‘Days to Rodeo’ on the 18th of August. The project seems to have been well received by La Flame fans across the world.

The album features production from Wondagurl, Metro Boomin, Mike Dean, Southside, Oz, Lex Luger and Travis himself just to mention a few.

Rich Homie Quan, Young Thug, Big Sean, The 1975, Migos and Peewee Longway came and did their bit.
I feel the need to commend Travis on how he kept to his vision of always doing ‘ill shit’ as he calls it. On earlier interviews he mentioned how this album was to be a continuation or a new level of Owl Pharoah. Owl Pharoah and Days to Rodeo certainly feel different. While I can say that at this point I’m still not all the way ‘turned,’ I have been impressed by Travis’ overall growth as a rapper, producer and. It’s great to see and hear that everybody featured on the project got and clearly understood the ‘Days to Rodeo memo’ because they all delivered.

Chancelor Bennett, better known as Chance The Rapper is an American  unconventional  and somewhat quirky rapper. The 21 year old singer-songwriter from “Chi-town” as Kanye West would call it, released his initial mixtape titled “10 Day” in April 2012, which caught only a few people’s attention. Chance did not give people’s negativity towards his music any light of day but went on to release a second mixtape a year later. “Acid Rap”, released in April 2013 as his second mixtape has gained him a major acknowledgement, or rather recognition. In the same year of release, 2013, Acid Rap was also nominated for Best Mixtape at the BET Hip Hop Awards, now tell me that ain’t some real stuff. I guarantee you an awesome listen to his music. If you’re tired of the mainstream Hip Hop music, then this is what you’re looking for. I promise you it will be worth every second of your time.

Down below is a link to his latest great tunes. ENJOY!!

Meet Kevin Roosevelt, a producer/vocalist who started off as a drummer. Having started production because of school policy, what the world has to say about that is thank you for steering this man in the right direction. I was drew to his work by his contribution to HS87. Taking nothing away from the album nor adding too much value to his work, I feel that his absence would be surely heard.

For those who have not heard HS87 and/or the RoseGold EP follow the links below:

You might have seen or heard about “SZA” somewhere or from someone. If you haven’t then have no worry because today we do a short entry on the very talented TDE signee who is popularly know by her stage name ‘SZA.’

Well, who is she?
Real name: Solana Rowe
Born: 8 November 1990
Origin: Maplewood New Jersey

She has since released 2 EPs independently titled See.SZA. Run(2012) and S(2013).
Rowe released a much anticipated 3rd EP in April this year under Top Dog Entertainment.

I simply do not have the right words to describe her music because she is still new and still remains an enigma to me. I have also just been introduced to the PBR&B and Neo Soul which Rowe is popular for.

What I can confidently say is that her music is warm, soulful glitchy
and mysteriously sweet. SZA’s music is not the typical “turn up,” it’s filled with little secret excitements that one would wish lasted longer but she remains in control and only gives away a bit of herself.

We over here at N.A.H certainly look forward to more music from this beautiful soul.
