Music Review “Stuntin' For Da Money” - J Rice Ft. AA Grand

By Yami Cabrera

[English]

The month of August began with the promotion of a new song by the musician and entrepreneur, Rice. The new production was released on July 31st under the name “Stuntin 'For Da Money.” The single features the collaboration of young rapper AA Grand, and was produced by the record label Hustle Work Grind Records.

We recently heard the force of Rice on his previous release, "Big Dreams." With this new song, the artist seems to continue demonstrating his dedication to the struggles against social injustice. His artistic world remains focused on a plot of protest, but without leaving the socio-expressive essence of Hip Hop and urban music in general.

"Stuntin 'For Da Money" is the faithful example of the artistic concept championed by Rice and his colleague AA Grand. However, the single is much stronger than previous productions. The sonic experimentation of the instrumental accompaniment presents a more advanced and accomplished musical elaboration, as well as evoking a more serious, dark and aggressive sound atmosphere. Rice and Grand reveal a great mastery of the Hip Hop genre, both generate a peculiar and highly attractive tone for the current production of this musical style.

The verbal language is strong and accusing, although it is not completely vulgar, it is possible to appreciate as a style within Hip Hop songs. “Stuntin 'For Da Money” recounts and reproaches the real inequality that exists in all sectors and spaces of society. In particular, Rice and AA address the world of social networks and its social relevance, especially in youth.

The youth of both artists, singer Rice and rapper AA Grand, seems to be their greatest impetus for the production of energetic music such as the single "Stuntin 'For Da Money." Despite the tense sounding world of this song, it is undeniable that such an interesting and inspiring vibe emerges from it. Let's wait with good expectations for the next productions of these artists.

El mes de agosto comienza con la promoción de una nueva canción del músico y emprendedor Rice. La nueva producción fue lanzada el pasado 31 de Julio con el nombre de “Stuntin' For Da Money”. El single cuenta con la colaboración del joven rapero y productor AA Grand, y fue producida por el sello discográfico Hustle Work Grind Records.

Recientemente escuchábamos la fuerza de Rice en su anterior lanzamiento, “Big Dreams”. El artista para seguir demostrando su entrega a las luchas contra la injusticia social. Su mundo artístico se mantiene enfocado en una trama de protesta, pero sin dejar la esencia socio-expresiva del Hip Hop y la música urbana en general.

“Stuntin' For Da Money” es el ejemplo fiel del concepto artístico defendido por Rice y su colega AA Grand. Sin embargo, el single es mucho más fuerte que producciones anteriores. La experimentación sonora del acompañamiento isntrumental presenta una elaboración musical más avanzada y mejor lograda, así como evoca una atmósfera sonora más seria , oscura y agresiva. Rice y Grand demuestran un gran dominio del género Hip Hop, ambos generan un tono peculiar y sumamente atractivo a la producción actual de este estilo musical. 

El lenguaje verbal es fuerte y acusador, aunque no llega a ser del todo vulgar como es posibe apreciar en temas de Hip Hop. “Stuntin' For Da Money” relata y acusa la real desigualdad existente en todos los sectores y espacios de la sociedad. En especial, Rice se dirige al mundo de las redes sociales y a su relevancia social especialmente en la juventud. 

La juventud de ambos artistas, el cantante Rice y el rapero AA Grand, parece ser su mayor impulso para la producción de enérgicas producciones como el single “Stuntin' For Da Money”. A pesar del tenso mundo sonoro de esta canción, es indudable la interesante e inspiradora vibra que se desprende de ella. Esperemos con buena expectativa por próximas producciones de estos artistas.

Michelle Rose Exclusive Interview

  Q:  What's it like growing up in Mpls?   Does the city have interesting stories about Prince?     A:  I only lived in Minneapolis until I was three, but I have fond memories of it.  Even now that I live in a suburb of Minneapolis, I still feel like I'm a part of Minneapolis.  I think a lot of Minnesotans have "Minneapolis Pride", even if they don't live in Minneapolis.  Minneapolis has so many fun things to see and do, and the arts are very important here, with so many theaters and live shows.     Prince put us on the map for music.  I hear Prince stories everywhere I go in Minnesota.  I've met so many people who were associated with Prince, including one of his dancers, and even a former Paisley Park employee working as a cashier at the local grocery store, so I've heard many Prince stories.  I wish I could've been a Chanhassen resident when Prince was still alive, because I know that many Chanhassen residents saw him casually riding his bike around

Planet Of Rhythm Exclusive interview

  GCoulda you tell us what it's like being from L.A.?   LA is a great city for music, like any other large city.   Of course the downsides are things like traffic etc. but it is a wonderful place to create music, to hear music and experience great performances. Could you name the members in Planet of Rhythm and the roles they play? Doug Hafford (me): songwriter, singer, guitar Greg Thomas: Producer Rhythm Guitar, Bass, backup vocals Chad McKinsey: Producer, Drums, Guitar, backup vocals Juliet Roberts: Lead and backup vocals (what a talent she is) Elliott Jason: Lead Guitars Jorge Orellana:  Bass, Sax    Who inspired you guys to make electric blues rock music; is it something you guys just have in common?   The music comes from our love of the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s style rockers.   Of course much of that was inspired by earlier artists such as Robert Johnson, or Howlin’ Wolf etc.  We love the simplicity mixed with great musical performances, overdriven guitars and a strong driving bea
