This year appears to be reshaping the essence of mainstream hip hop, with artistry and lyrical objectives that inspire and engage. Nowhere is this more apparent than on Loose Bills’ album “Supa Cold Daydreams.”
Featuring a sultry voice timbre and melody-rap fusion, but also weaving in soulful soundscapes and superbly thoughtful, intriguing, and uplifting lyricism, the project demonstrates an artist who has a genuine connection to the music, the words he raps, and the stories he recounts. “Intro” is the opener and is everything of this and more; a lingering highlight from the release as he features his parents talking about his character and the person he truly is.
Following that, “Drop Top Babies” builds on the contagious energy of the opener, combining the traits mentioned above in an immensely catchy progression that begs you to listen more than once to take on every bar. Weave in a light and breezy background for another fresh twist of originality, and this one closes the deal for one of the year’s hip hop albums.
Every now and again, we come across a cooperative effort that is absolutely creative and cutting-edge. This is one of those rare occasions. “Different Cloth,” by Lefty Gunz and Loose Bills, is a notable collaboration that pushes the frontiers of innovation while still embracing those very important musical perspectives that have made Hip Hop the developing genre that it is today. It’s a track that dares to be unique but actually finds how to mix novelty and familiarity in a style that will effortlessly delight any Hip Hop fan and even attract some new fans who may (or may not) have indeed been accustomed to the genre’s diverse world.
Versatility is essential these days, but it must be combined with a strong sense of individuality, which Loose Bills possess. Consider “Ridah’s” reflective story-telling and depths, which are evocative and compelling in a subtle, genuinely human way, seeming like a mid-album giving of genuine connection; nothing showy or artificial, just the bars and the soft soul of the music. Beautifully made, this is a personal favorite because of its subtle weight and intriguing, real overtones.
“Mr. Taylor” is an obvious standout, smooth and humble in tone, classically appealing in its old school textures and innate nostalgia, as well as the lyrics’ honesty and optimism. An uplifting track, ambient and easy to get lost in contemplation and ambition when listening to.
Everything about this album has a poetic aura. The title, the album cover, the concept of “Supa Cold Daydreams,” it all resonates true. Loose Bills commits to the present moment, providing experiences, brilliant wordplay, intimacy from tracks like “Conversation,” ambiguity, and angst all at the same time. However, the closer you look, the deeper those layers appear to be. The closing tune, “Warning,” embodies this, nicely closes things up, and shows incredibly honest, personalized yet approachable in its telling of life events and all he had to go through to get to where he is.

Fast forward, and now Bunny Daniels is a recording artist with the dream to take over the world and astonish it with her musical gifts.

Her new jam “Freak” is idiosyncratic as it is addicting; I actually admire the heart and soul that went into the making of this masterpiece. It is nostalgic, warm, and catchy, and performed with a touch of glory that caves deep into a listener’s heart!
There is everything to admire about how certain elements have been integrated into this tune to make it genre-defying; there is that marriage of the soulful nostalgic R&B features with a therapeutic dose of the pop vibe to create something that breaks the boundaries within time and space- it most certainly bridges that gap between old school and new school sound intriguingly!

The clarity and command of her voice make it feel like she is actually performing to you live as her smooth voice gloriously floats over the instrumentation like those NASA people do on space!
I hope you get it when I say her voice feels innocent because it does- there aren’t enough words that can quantify that but if you have watched enough films and listened to enough music, then you have a glimpse of this. She feels like she is singing from the past and yet communicating the present and future (if that even makes sense!)

Just an artist with the dream of impacting the globe with his musical talents; Taffy T has been working like a leader without a title and as a human dedicated to living in awe of life’s most gorgeous graces. I couldn’t be more proud of this dedicated artist who has refused to stand still as he seeks to make his voice heard by continuing at all costs; – perhaps highlighting the fact that persistence sits at the threshold of mastery! It was a very proud moment for him when he finally released his debut project “On That Night” and I could feel it meant the world to him that he was sharing a full-length project after 3 years!
“Time Flies By – Remix” is an eclectic melancholic-sounding soundtrack, and it is from those sad emotions built around it that give it that relatability and personal touch. I have listened to this tune severally and it got me thinking how the lightheartedness of being and the ancient pain of the past can’t stand the sight of each other!
It is always so hard to move on from past failures and requires steady and ceaseless practice that involves the brain; takes work and patience. Yet savoring this very instinct is an essential move for a dazzling life. This time is all you have and it’s an empire worth more than any amount of money in the world- this tune somehow reminded me of that!
There is a great deal of improvisation in this epic-sounding track with a dazzling blend of alternative features of dance-pop that give it that upbeat feel and as the track builds, I also felt some deep, blazing beats quintessential of hip-hop genre thrown in there. All through Taffy T’s powerful and uniquely identifiable vocals lusciously slink through the cheerful instrumentation with gratifying command and lucidity!

West Coast Student of the Game Tall Flame Debuts His “Walking Tall” Album That Is Out Now on All Digital Platforms!
The student of the game seeking to become the master of the universe of his own making; Tall Flame is following in the footsteps of his legendary predecessors from the West Coast such as Dr. Dre, Tupac Shakur, Eazy- E, Kendrick Lamar, Snoop Dogg, N.W.A and others who made it possible for others like him to fulfill their passions and live their dreams. His journey has not been particularly a walk in the park; he has had to endure difficulties, stared failure in the face and overcome impossible odds by showcasing tremendous strength, character, fortitude and power and that is why he is proud of reaching this milestone where he gets to share with the world his first ever full-length studio album!
To any hip-hop head, “Walking Tall” is the staple; you are going to have a feast in here. This collection is personal; it is more than the songs, this is his journey and a somewhat depiction of evolving from ‘rugs to riches’ through hard work, determination, careful consistency and unrestrained bravery. By pushing the play button, you get a front-seat row experience into the life of Tall Flame- raw, honest and unfiltered; welcome aboard!
That cover art is fire; and I mean literally and metaphorically- an illustration of how he has literally walked through fire and survived near-death experiences and is still standing tall or as he liked it “Walking Tall!”
The beats in “Slap House Gang” are intoxicating and slap like hell whilst still feeling heavenly! I still can’t get those melodies off of my mind and the lyrical ingenuity unleashed here is second to none! Proving to be a rhymester of his generation Tall Flame jet-skis over the beats like starring in a blockbuster film as he tells his relatable tales. This track features guest appearances from top lyrists AjGotSlapz and Whosthahottest who complement it sufficiently!
“Wake and Bake” qualify as the official street anthem of 2022; unleashing colossus amounts of catchy hooks and memorable bars, this will get you pumped up and ready to face any kind of day.
Tall Flame and GsThaGreat really didn’t have to go that hard on the title track “Walking Tall”; this is an old school inspired masterpiece featuring some ear worming nostalgic beats as Tall Flame tells his personal story of how he was able to hustle his way up; from the depths of despair to now, the heights of believe! This is his own journey of elevation and what he has had to endure to become the man he is now; – all of these experiences through the streets have shaped him into the go-getter he is and he details that with some clever bars and smart wordplay highlighting his swiftness with words!
“Thinking about you” is most definitely Grammy-award-winning worthy! Featuring male vocalist Eye Will who does something special on that chorus, this tune made quite an impression on me. With the stage set for him in the form of those stupendously laid beats, Tall Flame moonwalks over the beats in between the chorus sections, coming through with straight-talking, mature and hard-hitting bars in an instantly recognizable manner. Here he tells off those who were not part of his struggles and want to be part of his success!
You have to believe him when he says he hits his target even when he’s blind in “Motivation” which is another nostalgically defined tune that takes you back to the good old days of authentic rap music and Tall Flame surely knows his way around that sound as he unleashes an unforgettable performance in this epic masterpiece!
A particular bar stuck with me all through where he says or rather asks, “If I die will they die to hear my music…” – I found it very honest and heavy and it has stayed with me since!
This year we are absolutely feasting; I am not even gotten over Metro Boomin’s “HEROES & VILLAINS” and now I got “Walking Tall” from someone I have high regard for; what a time to be alive!
To listen to “Walking Tall” in its entirety; follow the attached link and savor this surreal listening experience!
