The Sole of Hip-Hop

If you're like me and you have friends that just so happen to have an enigmatic presence about them that exudes best when art is being created, then when you get the chance to see them in their purest element you tend
to get a bit excited. Such was my excitement when I got the opportunity to see perform a group that I hadn't seen in nearly five years. A friend of mine was performing at the Shadow Lounge this Friday night (9 April) for the first time in a long while and I had the distinct honour of being made privy to such happenings. Now, as it was the Shadow Lounge, I wasn't inclined to miss the opportunity to be wrapped in velvet and hip-hop no matter who was performing. So, when I sat down, rum and Coke in hand, I could feel the flutters of anticipation begin to well up inside me.

Curtain up...

Welcome to the stage Nick Pratt. As an opening act, I couldn't have been more satisfied. This man never fails to impress and always leaves me spellbound. Fearless and ferocious, he eats the stage alive without pretence and with all the bravado in the world. But don't mistake him for a high school poser --a toy with missing parts. He loves to sport this lifestyle! Every performance --whether opening act or main event-- is a love note to hip-hop.

What came next actually surprised me to giggling. Sometimes I find myself in the midst of greatness and tend to get a bit overwhelmed. In the case of Franchise, I was surprised by his greatness --for as it was a shocking revelation, I was somehow ready for it. The ability to caress the audience and still keep your integrity as an artist is no easy feat. I raise my glass to Franchise and hope that he maintains his connection to the audience without sacrificing what it truly means to be an artist. There's absolutely nothing wrong with giving the crowd some music to bounce to. What Franchise accomplishes is keeping the beat fresh and keeping the lyrics as true to the craft as possible. - Camiele White


So I guess in my mind this is the perfect time to bring you some new and approved YNMD talent. He goes by AV and comes through with a leak off his upcoming project “The Sole Vibe Presents: One to Grow On.” Look for the entire project to drop this spring and be sure you download “Been Around The World” below. Now enjoy!
