Canada-Based Lyrical Model Erick Rush Has a Spectacular Cultural Anthem; “One Thing About Me”

Born in Dar es Salaam in Tanzania in 1990 is how the story of conscious rapper Erick Rush begins. Fashioning a life full of adventures, Erick Rush began touring beginning with his native Tanzania before migrating to the United States and eventually settling in his current residence, Edmonton in Canada. He has also been to many African countries including South Africa where he demanded attention with his ear-catching features with Nasty C. Seeking to tell his own story through hip hop, Erick Rush wants to show another side to the rap game while washing away the negative stereotypes associated with hip hop music such as gang violence, crime and drugs.

His lyrical prowess has not gone unnoticed with several accolades to his name including reaching the Top 10 finalist in the Trace Stars music competition and being named Hype’s MVP by HypeMagazine. He was also honored as a People choice nominee by Edmonton Music Awards.

His music is, of course, a blend of different cultural influences and experiences from his many travels through different cities, provinces and states along with lifelong musical influences from some of his all-time favorite rappers such as Lil Wayne, JAY Z and Tupac Shakur. He tells his own immigration stories lyrically over hip-hop beats in ways that many listeners can relate and even those who can’t at least get to be treated to something different and hear the other side of other people’s stories.

Creative at heart and seeking to make a positive impact with his sound one song at a time, Erick Rush is a conduit through which unheard stories are heard. His 2021 album, “Culture Shock: An Immigration Story” which he states as his most powerful to date tells his own experiences as a migrant through different states. Wearing his heart on his sleeve, every track in here tells emotional, intimate and real stories in the most notable ways possible- it is no surprise it was massively received with deserved acclaim following positive reviews from magazines, listeners and radio play.

The dream for him now is to never stop, he is shooting for the stars, and looking at how his music has been able to inspire listeners as much as other artists around him is why this dream will never die. He seeks to increase his influence to worldwide levels and is right on track to do that- one release at a time.

The track, “One Thing About Me” is a straight favorite- first things first, that rocket ship-inspired cover art is ready to launch and it epitomizes a steady rise of Erick Rush’s career as he takes his music to space! With catchy hooks sandwiched in between real-life inspired thought-provoking bars, this is what authentic hip hop tastes like.

The beats are flawlessly expressive with a hypnotic blend of vintage synth lines, powerful drums, firm basslines and of course the nostalgic thrill that is reminiscent of the old-school type of rap. Erick Rush honors his moment with a genuine display of rap-tainted poetic dexterity that makes an impression on any listener regardless of whether you enjoy rap music. He tells of how he had to step up on his and his family’s behalf so as to create a pathway that many are now benefitting from.

Raw and honest, this is why “One Thing About Me” is an undeniable favorite. He featured fellow rapper K Riz who does well to complement this track both in storyline and symbolism coming through with clever wordplays over the transcendentally warm beats.

When the Streets Called, Hip-Hop Whiz Daraja Hakizimana, Known as $TYLJA, Answered With a Game-Changing Masterpiece, “MVP (Mix 1)”

Painting the intricacies of his own musical canvas with multiple colors is the producer, rapper, songwriter, and singer Daraja Hakizimana aka $TYLJA from Houston, Texas, and a proud member and contributor of “My Block Recordz,” a Houston-based indie label known for transforming the dreams of so many upcoming art creatives into reality. As a producer, Daraja has a knack for creating infectious beats and haunting melodies that tell deep and relatable stories. He released the 12-track album “MVP (Mix 1),” which received critical acclaim, with many applauding his production skills and competency to tell stories with mere beats.

“Shut That Trap” brings life to the beat with its ethereal vocal layers, sirens, and other distinct additions to elevate its appeal to stunning heights. The production fits the right merit for those introspective listening experiences, seeing that it has not been overdone and is still expressive in its own captivating ways. A fine balance has been achieved here between atmospheric appeal and laid-back melodicism.

With “Back To Work,” the stripped back foundation serves as an earworm for anyone listening and serves as an exceptional accompaniment for morning drives to work. The beat feels special and soothes the soul as well as warming the heart.

The song “Practice” gains depth and intensity from the famous quote by Allen Iverson, “I mean, listen, we’re talking about practice, not a game, not a game, not a game, we talking about practice. Not a game” sampled over the exquisite production.

Featuring eye-catching NBA clips, the music video for “Majic” elevates the jam to epic heights as you enjoy the music and get fascinated by the killer moves and dunks being unleashed by the players. This is a music clip that captivates and holds your attention.

Throughout this album, $TYLJA continues to showcase such production excellence with some otherworldly music in “We Outside,” “After The Game,” “Gang Gang,” and “She Needs To Go.”

The collection stands as a work of art, akin to a musical hall of fame (if it exists!)

After the long day you’ve just had, you deserve to listen to some good music, and $TYLJA offers just that with “MVP (Mix 1)”

The streets were calling and this is how Daraja Hakizimana answered the call—think of him as a musical Batman.
