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...

Piqued Jacks rock n roll #Flyah

Piqued Jacks describe their sound in their own words: “being able to speak without impediment; having sex in the most intense way possible; expressing ourselves 100%”. You have to hear it to experience it for yourself. Piqued Jacks are brave souls. Rising from a small village in Italy, they have methodically made their way from obscurity to Austin, the heart of the indie music scene, performing 2 showcases at SXSW 2013. Their powerful alliance and headstrong vision has resulted in rapid success and the positive flow of their career indicates a confident band gaining serious momentum. Back in 2006, the Piqued Jacks were anything but serious. They causally acquired the band name after someone drops a bass during rehearsal. The damaged jack resembled an erect penis and the boys felt the sexual allusion suited their sound. A few years later, something clicked, a unified connection to the music making process, and from 2010 to 2011 they released two EP’s, conquering Italian airw…
