Song of the Day: Cruel World – Jasi (ft. Nelson Barros)

Award winning rapper JASI is more than just a musical artist but a creative in the truest form. His latest song is ‘Cruel World’, the title track from his new EP which was released last month, which followed two previous releases ‘FTS’ and ‘Okocha’.

Speaking of the release, JASI explains: “Cruel World was inspired by the passing of my grandmother. She was taken off life support following an accident, but somehow stayed alive for 10 days in the hospital without food, water”.

The reflective mood and lyrical content effortlessly align to the theme, with mellow undertones in the production, painting a picture of what JASI is describing. The rapper and songwriter enlists French-Creole battle rapper Nelson Barros on the feature verse, with production from Forgotten.

“In the song I talk about recurring personal demons and social injustices whilst contemplating out the existential hypocrisies of living in a “Cruel World”. Ultimately we all have to look out for ourselves.”

Song of the Day: Feels – MRG (ft. Rio Nilo)

Available now on all digital streaming platforms, ‘Feels’ is the second single from Dominican-American rapper MRG‘s forthcoming debut album, ‘Live From The Hurst 2’. Featuring guest vocalist Rio Nilo, the song finds MRG expressing his fear of being vulnerable with a love interest, over a LOUD-produced backdrop with EDM and trap overtones.

“The track is about a woman who got me in my “Feels”. I had mixed signals from her at first so I didn’t want to express how I felt because of my pride… I was scared of getting rejected but I kept it solid and said how i really felt… I want listeners to understand that being scared to be open and vulnerable with a person is a common feeling in many relationships. I finally understood being vulnerable can be an act of courage and can bring people closer together. By being authentic to your feelings you can also inspire your significant other to do the same.”MRG
