yU ~ Dreams feat. Danedra Rowell

The A-side of the next installment in Mello Music Group’s 7” Series comes from Diamond District/1978er producer/emcee yU. The gruff DMV MC is known for philosophical street rap but “Dreams” takes a different route - the result a hauntingly beautiful track likely to end up on repeat. 

Enlisting Danedra Rowell on vocals, yU eschews the new age boom-bap that got him noticed for something closer to all of our heartstrings. Featuring no rapped bars, “Dreams” is a bittersweet ballad that is less literal than emotive. It captures that late-night, pensive feeling us music heads are very familiar with. yU is able to craft a sound that is universal and hyper-local, breaking new ground for himself musically. The drums sound like they could be on any Diamond District-related project but the melody and chords don’t sound too far from something that could find its way onto radio. 

Gyasi Kamau & Ohbliv ~ OhblivioUS (Video)

Shootings of youth have become the norm for Chicago news. Chicago rapper Gyasi Kamau, producer Ohbliv and hiphop blogger @Rap_Pages, shine a light on the ongoing Chicago violence.

"OhblivioUS" begins with a nod to JFK's iconic "Ask not what you can do for your country" speech and concludes with singing reminiscent of Marvin Gaye's "What's Going On". Gyasi Kamau provides commentary and asks the questions we all wonder when we catch wind of the Windy City violence using a poetic flow laced with internal rhyme. Ohbliv's soulful production combined with newsroom visuals make "OhblivioUS" more than just a music video - its a public service announcement.
