Over the weekend, VinceDaWeedMan dropped Tha C.H.I.L.L. Tape. He is a rapper from Cleveland and works with a crew known as the Stoners League Champs or SLC. Vince doesn't follow trends and his goal is to make good music that everyone can nod their head to and enjoy. VinceDaWeedMan tells us his motivation for the mixtape in the intro as well. We have posted a few track earlier and now we're very excited to bring you the full offering. The sound is a mix of soulful hip-hop with a few spacey beats here and there. A good example of this would be the track "Sessions". When it comes to the features, Mellow's verse on "Joey Gladstone" is definitely worth checking out. Although many of the songs are about smoking, there is a lot of substance to the tape when VinceDaWeedMan reflects on life on tracks like "Plottin'", "Visions" and "C.H.I.L.L.". Listen to Tha C.H.I.L.L. Tape below!
From a young age Cleveland, Ohio's unbelievably talented Erika Kayne has been singing and working on music. Even auditioning on American Idol at the age of 14. Although she didn't make the show, that didn't stop her from pursuing her passion to sing and I think that shows her dedication right there alone. After being the lead singer for a rap group based in her hometown The Goodfellas, she released a solo as well as her first mixtape titled E Day which got her a slot in Cleveland's Summer Jam event. Now signed to Vyrus Entertainment, Erika is working with some very talented producers like Case Boogie who produced the single "ABC's" off her upcoming EP Citizen Kayne. I remember when I was young there would always be some R&B of sort playing like Lauryn Hill and TLC are a couple artists I can think of off hand, which Erika Kayne's new single definitely got me wanting to throw some more of on to my playlist instead of the normal straight hip-hop. Take in this gem after a description from her biography.
Pertaining to her goals, Erika does not pursue music for the fame or money that comes along with the highly advertised lifestyle. She aspires to be a positive role model and to become the voice for other aspiring young female artists. She hopes to show them that anything is possible in this world, despite what must be overcome in the process. To quote from her song "ABC'S", "You only give your toughest battles to your strongest soldiers."
VinceDaWeedMan is a rapper from Cleveland who isn't after money or fame. He refuses to fall victim to any trends and his goal is to make enjoyable music people can relate to. "My Life" is the second single from Tha C.H.I.L.L. Tape mixtape which drops on August 10. Vince also raps with a crew called Stoners League Champs so we can expect some collaborations with them as well. As the title of the tape suggests, the song is indeed very chill and soulful.
