Nonchalant Savant – ¡Spark! [ALBUM]

Grab a bottle of “Vino” and gear up for a sensual, slippery ride with Miguel’s younger brother, who goes by the stage name Nonchalant Savant.  This 11-track album is sure to put you in a good mood, as Nonchalant carves his own alternative r&b lane outside of his big brother’s shadow.

SevenSixteen’s Truey V: ‘Trap Rage’ review

Trap Rage is the perfect EP for this moment in 2018- with its Authentic Buffalo pride as the Bills make the Playoffs for the first time in 17 years and we are amidst our first Blizzard of the winter solace.

I remember the first time I heard about Trap Rage, it was at a kick back after Curtis Lovell’s show. It was a crew of us black creatives chilling, talking about our different projects we were working on . Truey was sharing with Rhys some of what was completed from his new project, Trap Rage over his Beats as the rest of us vibed out. I remember Rhys said aloud ‘this was about to be a hit. ‘

Fast forward to the first time I heard ‘No Snaps’ and ‘Hussle’ was during Truey’s set at Beau Fleuve Music and Arts Event during the silent disco. Each song created a vibe of pride of this city when it dropped that everyone danced out to. Trap Rage has accumulated its own success over the past few months since its October release. With some of the most popular songs ‘Hussle’ , ‘No Snaps’, ‘Fuck Five’ that highlight the experiences and weaves narratives that all black folk can relate to with flows that interchange from smooth vocals to Truey’s hype is fueled by the frustration and joy of millennial existence.

I couldn’t help but feel the connection not only to the music but the Collective experience of being Buffalo Natives, being black , being millennials, affirming that this will be our year – and how Trap Rage is the personification of all that. I enjoyed all elements of this from the beats, Truey’s lyrical flows, to the catchy hooks( especially in ‘No Snaps’ & ‘Inuyasha’).

Give this EP a listen if you haven’t already, it’s filled with hits that are perfect for your 2018 playlist!

PJ – This Is What It Looks Like [Video]

pj

Having a rough week? Maybe even a rough month? PJ’s recent release This Is What It Looks Like is what you need to power through. Soulful vocals coupled with visuals reminiscent of Carrie Mae Weems’s Kitchen Table Series serve as a powerful reminder that though we all must face obstacles in life, we still find a way to persevere. Even more so, we’re stronger, kinder, and wiser because of it. A gentle prompt that we are the masters of our future, even when it seems we have lost control.

Check out the powerful video here.
