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…

The twenty short stories detail infamous events such as Napoleon's rise and fall to American women receiving rights to vote. Another of the short stories was about Maslow's Theory describing the five steps of life and achievements. This book is inspiring and gives insight into the mentality of many great people who contributed to society, helped others in times of need and become more self-aware. Alla talked about her time as a engineer being changed from constructing buildings to bridges with no guidance given to her. Even after transferring from Africa to U.S.A. for an engineering job, Alla was puzzled that she earned the job but she strive to achieve her goals. In life, dedication can be the breaking point of a successful venture and a reflection of the steps taken to get there. Alla also theorizes about a time that women felt uncomfortable in a …
