Malik Ninety-Five – “Need to Know”
This is a bit of hip-hop gumbo because it contains so many different elements and sounds. This song dabbles back and forth between Dubstep, Pop, Trap-soul and R&B. genre blending to the max musically while Malik raps over the wompy, backwards sounding bass about the nature of his relationships.
Terrace Martin Music – “Mask Off Remix”
Live acoustic covers of classic songs has always been appreciated by some fans, but Terrace Martin Music takes the approach off YouTube videos and into the studio covering Future‘s “Mask Off.” Rolling slowly to a start the track starts off reminiscent of a classic Kung Fu score before pleasantly dropping into a smooth sax lead. The jazzy interpolation is magnificent with almost dueling horns, lead by a marching clap and finishing off with hints of the vocoder and soft 80’s like synths. A mesmerizing remix to enjoy.
REKS – “H.I.P.H.O.P”
REKS offers his explanation of hip-hop through a conscious acronym fittingly over a Apollo Brown boom-bap beat. “Heard infinite powers/Help Oppress People,” raps the MC with a grimy delivery as he salutes legendary MCs who helped raise and shape him with lyrics like, “Rakim was my daddy/Papa R had me/Perfecting my math and the/ paragraphs all day.” A dope track.
