‘Grand Scheme’ by Nvsv #tbt

Motivation at its finest. At times life can feel misdirected or random, so it’s important to plan.

In order to make that plan, you gotta work day in and day out – with no excuses.

Well, Nsvs has been doing exactly that – scheming, planning for February 10, 2019 when he will be dropping his newest album AMETHYST.

I can’t wait for it, but until then jump back into Nsvs’s latest released album LVL 3 and give ‘Grand Scheme’ a listen!

‘Rolling Stoned’ by Leila Rhodes

The first minute is by far the best part of this song in my ears. The build up and production of sound that meshes and comes together is melodic, perfectly timed, and soothingly catchy.

The chill rapping with echoing and the drawn out rhymes are subtle but executed to perfection.

The piano and guitar combination post chorus is prime.

I can’t wait to hear more of what Leila Rhodes creates musically.

‘El Gato Del Fuego’ by The Clock Reads

Saucy Jazz. Salsa & Jazz? The crescendos, the build up, the rifts, the lines. Yeah, this song is one of a kind.

The saxophone is special, but all instrumentals combined make it 8 minutes of heaven – this song hits all the right spots.

The Clock Reads is something else 👌🏼

‘Don’t Worry’ by Chalk Dinosaur

Follow That Feeling.

Don’t Worry.

Can’t stress enough how chill the vibes are in this tune and the sheer creativity and quality of production on this track and all Chalk Dinosaur’s tracks.

Their music is introspective, thought provoking, and evokes emotion that leaves the listener willingly vulnerable to the emotions they’re feeling, yet yearning for more of that feeling.

‘1/2 Past Five’ by Jor

Bars Bars Bars.

Beats Beats Beats.

Dare I say Jor’s bars have a Mac style to them? No doubt Jor has his own sound, but I can hear it in the slightest on his debut album, Light Soul which kind of makes sense considering Big Jerm was the producer of the album.

My favorite aspect of the album is the lyricism and the beats. Straightforward but solid and down to earth. Real recognizing real with this album.

Peep it on all major streaming platforms 🤙🏼

#tbt ‘Ready’ by Tairey ft. Kirko Bangz

The only time I’ve seen Tairey live was in 2018 at Spirit for The City Music Festival, it was poppin’ – good energy, legitimate rapping and overall talent. I’m READY to see another performance, so I’m hitting today’s beat with a tbt on this track by Tairey ft. Kirko Bangz !

The chill-laidback production, piano, and beat Tairey and Kirko Bangz made for this song make it highly underrated, for real. I mean under 4,000 plays on Spotify is whack…

If you haven’t heard of Tairey, check out the info below (s/o Good Sports, In the Rough, and PGHCityPaper. Go and do yourself a favor and listen to Tairey!

‘The Fool’ by The Hills and the Rivers

A sweet melody opens up with guitar, followed by timely violin and banjo.

The three instrumental pieces combined with double vocals makes this such a memorable piece.

I’d rather be the magician than the fool, but this song was too good not to highlight for today’s beat.

The Hills and the Rivers (Pittsburgh ya dig) released their latest album The Fool and The Magician on May 18, 2018.

Love the truth as much as you love yourself and others, and you will no longer be the fool.

OR to continue NOT being a fool, check out The Hills and the Rivers on all streaming platforms and check out ‘The Magician’ – a song and music video below!

‘Feeling Alright’ by Rebelution

Been feelin’ good feel’ alright yeah.

Rebelution is one of my favorite Reggae bands, and it’s been awhile since I’ve been jammin’ to reggae.

I’m about to get back into it, so let me know of any Pittsburgh Reggae bands or any dope reggae bands you might know about.

Stay lifted.

‘Train of Thought’ by Brittney Chantele & Treble NLS

Brittney Chantele & Treble NLS dish out the thoughts that quite often all of us are going through. Our minds can run a million miles a minute, and our thoughts tend to never be silent. Yet, this song is all about letting that train pass, so that there can be clarity and serenity within our thoughts.

The two remind listeners that life is a balance, and it would be foolish to ignore our thoughts completely. It’s essential to hone in on the thoughts that help us grow, and let the ones that drag us down stay on the train that passes us by.

‘Honest Man’ by Fat Night

For 2019, all I want is to do the best I can. Man, does this song motivate me to do just that.

No matter what happens in 2019, one foot in front of the other is what I want. I want to succeed, fail, try, do, and all while doing that, I simply want to do the best I can while being an honest man.

Honestly (ha), I feel good about being an honest, good person towards others and even myself. But, if I’m being honest with myself, I have room to grow in 2019 from 2018. I want to move more in 2019 in all phases of life.

Movement > Stagnation.

Ambition > Complacency.

The funk, R & B, soul jams that Fat Night has created have caught my attention in only 24 hours of listening. With that…

Fat Night plays at Spirit Lodge in Pittsburgh tonight, and I can’t wait to see them play!

Local artist Isaiah Small and band Lofi Deplhi will be opening. Show starts at 9!
