TurnUp is about to BlowUp - Flyah Review - Summer Practice Package


TurnUp is a very special artist. He has the pizazz of a commercial artist and the gift of gab. TurnUp's mixtape is entitled Summer Practice Package; it starts off with a nice soul sample that instantly grabs your ears and takes you on a smooth ride. The way he repeats "Put On, Ma" makes this a commercial success and I love the topic. He reminds me of Kendrick Lamar mixed with a little of Mos Def. The second track hits the ground running with more upbeat tempo but keeps the jazzy feel; "Real Life" is illustrated is a sign of drawing a woman's attention hinting his life is a movie. TurnUp's flow and speech over the record shows progression similar to King Chip or Big K.R.I.T. which definitely is a plus in the hip hop industry; if you're not able to flow then you won't last long so TurnUp made certain to be on his A-Game. 

On the track "Wordsmith", TurnUp expresses his lyricism in an introspective way that most MC's draw pictures through visions of combing art and life situations blending together. He also brings a fire that boils over with a strength in his words so that they won't be taken as just child's play while rapping. TurnUp channels this song as a showcase that brings a new definition to MC which now can add a new category, Wordsmith.

In an inspired track based on the video game, "Kingdom Hearts" which features Jizza Raw and produced by Jair the Shadow. , TurnUp presents a style that is accompanied by the sample of the orchestra music from the video game series with added in composition. The reflection in the message is poetry in the flesh; an insight on how life throws obstacles in the way and you may see yourself surrounded by some who harness evil energy.  These are just a few records that stood out to me and i could not believe what i had heard. This is the best and phenomenal art in the last 10 to 15 years in my opinion; there's a lot to take of this and hopefully i wish TurnUp the best in his career as he continues to stay grinding with a focus and purpose. To rate this project, "Summer Practice Package", i give it a 9 out of 10...

CHECK OUT GEM - FLYAH EXLUSIVE INTERVIEW

GEM is to headline the Los Angeles Power Women Summit in December, bringing this new style of medical-music to the masses. She has been able to make use of her time in isolation: perfecting her EP, creating a YouTube channel and working on a plethora of collaborations with other global artists. The new single, If I’m Honest, is arguably the first of its kind. It has been specifically produced in the key of B. The musical note B is associated with the crown chakra, the 7th chakras in the Buddhist tantric system. Buddhists believe that by listening to music in this key, corresponding to the crown chakra, it can heal and awaken the listener, helping to release stored negative energy and energetic blockages in the body. WE HAD THE CHANCE TO CATCH UP WITH GEM READ WHAT SHE HAD TO SAY!   How long have you been doing music and where you find the inspiration? Music has always been a part of my life, although being visible in the producers chair has been a natural progression over the past 4 ye

Sam Hankins was born to shine! Jazz Musician with a supreme Sound!

We were able to talk to a very talented musician by the name Sam Hankins.  His jazz music is full of soul, with inspiration that can light the path for fans and fellow musicians. Read the details about his journey below!   Interview Questions So when did you become a musician, and would you say it was the ideal path to take? Because I was born into a musical family, becoming a musician was not something I even thought about. It is in my blood. I knew I wanted to make music my career at the early age of 5 years old. I know that being a professional trumpeter and school band director is my calling.   Who are the jazz influences that inspired you? You know, I started off with singing & playing the guitar, but then I saw Louis Armstrong playing the trumpet & that decided it for me. When I spoke to my mom, she said that my uncle had an old trumpet that he used to play and once I had cleaned it out, my fate was sealed. Some of the other jazz influencers were Freddie Hubbard, Miles Da

Michael Coleman Is back with another Anthem!

  WE HAD A CHANCE TO CATCH UP WITH MICHAEL COLEMAN, READ WHAT HE HAD TO SAY ABOUT HIS MUSICAL JOURNEY!   Michael Coleman, where are you from and what's it like in your hometown and how did you get the nickname "The Metropolitan Cowboy"?   I was actually born and raised in San Diego, California.  San Diego is just an awesome town although like everywhere else in California, it costs a fortune to live there.  My nickname, “The Metropolitan Cowboy” actually comes from a television project I was doing a few year’s back. I wrote and produced an adult-oriented sketch comedy show and since I was always dressed with a cowboy hat on and looked metrosexual we decided that should be the name of the show and my brand and I have been called that ever since.   How long have you been songwriting and where do you find the inspiration?   I’ve been writing since I was a kid, however I didn’t decide to take it seriously until I had a milestone birthday , I won’t tell you which one and it wa
