Don’t let em take your soul, got damn. Better fight it and don’t let em make you fold got damn. Break the mold, got damn!
Reppin my hometown, Berkeley – Caleborate drops a dope, lead single for upcoming LP, Real Person.
The raps and mood transcend the soul in today’s hip-hop game!
And Lege Kale boasts a notorious, Soundcloud freshness to this jam.
Apologies for being MIA – I’m on the road presently (sunny Portland precisely), and don’t have reliable internet service or my laptop.

A contrarian; consistently uplifting love and relationships in the rap game, Phora is the perfect antidote to the hedonism, fake-shit, and instant-gratification, which is mainstream hip-hop and popular culture nowadays.
She said she never been in love,
All she ever did was give her love,
Eveyone they only take her love,
So you scared of love,
I don’t blame you love.
Never waver in loving yer special someone “To The Moon.”
Bump the new Phora below, and stay tuned for the upcoming LP, Yours Truly Forever, coming in August.
Something tells me MGK saves his best for intimate, casual settings, such as this.
Love the message and performance of “Kiss The Sky” from last month’s LP, Bloom.

Cause you make our stars align in the sky, don’t know why, I could die. And you make me feel like I’m so alive, don’t no why, I could die.
Been on Jared Evan way back, and the music has grown monumentally.
From the raps and pop-culture dabblings in earlier releases, there’s so much soul in the current sound.
Off 2016’s November LP, The Blanket Truth , one of my favorite tracks gets a much deserved visual treatment.

Dumbfoundead’s newest collective (which includes the dope-ass, YOX), BORN CTZN marks the game with an EP.
Heavy overtones of American and Korean culture and splish-splash can be heard.
“The Foreigner project is for all the outsiders. As an Asian-American (a.k.a. gyopo) I never knew where I belonged. I had two identities, neither one being fully accepting me. Even when I visited Korea, my home country, I felt like a Foreigner. While I didn’t fully understand the language, I was still embraced by those who followed my music. This mini-album is my first project ever distributed in Korea and I wanted to flip the word ‘Foreigner’ (which is usually used in a negative way) into something positive.”
