Gatorade Bath. Young Nova [Review]

It’s Leftee. Back from what seems like an eternity. Writer’s blocked consumed my life for the past couple weeks but I’m back and ready to release my thoughts.

Anyhoo. Major kudos to Lowe for introducing me to another independent artist on the grind. Young Nova is his name and he is here to tell you all about him. His new mixtape, Gatorade Bath, released recently and oozes with sounds of ambition, hustle, and strength. Tracks like “Whatever It Takes” & “My Moment” shows us that Nova is ready to take the world by storm with thoughts caught on hot beats.

Young Nova, who hails from Buffalo, New York, moved to Atlanta, GA to achieve his dream and to put 7 1 6 on the map. “Gatorade Bath” is 60+ minutes of pure raw, feelings and rhymes. Take a look at the title. A gatorade bath, which is usually the way to celebrate the victory of a sporting event, is symbolic to the victory of Young Nova finishing his first musical project. Young Nova’s hunger is evident and he is definitely showing the world that he is indeed ready for a spot in the industry.

Major Players – Jay Moore, D.Hill & Sheez, Muzik Jones Drew [Mixtape]

Who are these players? And why are they major? Jay Moore and D.Hill & Sheez hail from the Forgotten City of Buffalo, NY. Their slang is so B-lo & grind undeniable. They collaborated on a track entitled “Major Players” featuring other 716ers to show that they put on in any regard for their city. And with a remix brewing in the works with Delray Beach, FL bred player Muzik Jones Drew, proves these cats are up to bat & nothing but grand slams will be hit.

This compilation introduces the gentlemen individually, taking listeners on a journey from where they started to where they are now. Songs from D.Hill & Sheez’s project Mackin’ & Hangin’ which dropped in summer 2010 are featured: “Winner,” “In The Back,”  “Like That.” While a few recent freestyles: “LiveFastDieYoung” and “The Hangover” were added for swavor, as the boys of Well Fed calls “swag and flavor.”

Jay Moore’s set leads off with a couple jams from his release last winter (3/2010) The Making of a Legend Vol1: The Emotion, all of which he produced on his own.  “Mary” and “All of Me” are the features from that project, while “Son of Jerrell,” “Ghost of Christopher Wallace” and “So Appalled” are freestyles that may or may not make the cut on the upcoming mixtape The Golden Era Revival set for release summer 2011.

Muzik Jones Drew is the honorary Buffalonian making his mark on this tape and in that city, due in part to Rhon Lowe of Flagrant City’s efforts. A self-efficient machine, who writes, raps, sings, produces and engineers, Drew came from behind his keyboard for a bit and it wasn’t to play with these minor league players.  “Been Out Chea” “Funk Rap” “Take It Back (Kick Step)” are all from his first solo album Ghetto HarmonIz’N (1/2010), while “Hey” is a unreleased track from 2008 when he was a part of the group Dirty Project, and “Cool” is off his latest mixtape Kloud Life (3/2011), a compilation with former Dirty Project member 1Hot.

The final lap of the tape showcases the sparks that fly when these players team up for a track. “It’s All Good” uses MJD’s vocals for the hook, while Sheez & Hill merk out the verses. “Twisted” is a backyard BBQ type jam over a throwback Outkast beat with Jay Moore leading off and Muzik Jones Drew rounding out the end. “Ready or Not” Jay Moore and MJD show the true meaning of being 80s babies while freestyling over the classic Fugees track. Then the inspiration for the tape “Major Players” ends it on a high note: D.Hill & Sheez let it be known that it’s W.F.O.E. (Well Fed Over Everything) while Jay Moore’s smooth lyricism reigns supreme.  These are your Major Players.
