Hip-Hop Newcomer Supreme Releases New Single, ‘Thug Thizzle’ From Forthcoming EP

Carving his own lane in rap music as the son of a legendary emcee of arguably one of hip-hop’s most recognizable brands is no easy feat. But Staten Island native SUPREME is more than ready to take on the task, with a brand new EP Love Jones, set to release this summer. The project’s lead single, ‘Thug Thizzle’, a super smooth joint which anthems taking life’s ups and downs in your stride.

Speaking on the release, Supreme say: “‘Thug Thizzle’ is basically me saying ‘I’m going to be alright with whatever life throws at me. There was a time in college- around the end of my sophomore year at Morgan State -where I wanted to drop out. I felt regretful, like if I never went to college I would have already been progressing in my music career. The only reason I went to college was to be a role model to my younger sister, and to make my mother proud. I was the only one in my immediate family to go to college. When Nipsey Hussle was murdered, I gained a new perspective. It’s like it took for his passing to put me back in my place. That’s when I started writing ‘Love Jones’. I started merging music with school work, and I started getting A’s.”

Based on the importance of relationships with family and loved ones, the Love Jones EP takes an honest approach, addressing relationships with his mother, brother, and even his complicated relationship with his father (woven throughout the project are recordings of real phone conversations between Supreme and his father, Ghostface).

Caitlin Min Fa Delivers Inspirational Emotive Single, ‘Work In Progress’

Following her first appearance on the blog with debut single, ‘Younger Self’, which generated over 10K streams on Spotify alone, Young Australian singer/songwriter CAITLIN MIN FA makes a return with second single, ‘Work In Progress,’ a power ballad, representing the motions of life and the process of figuring out oneself.

EP Review: 034 – Oloye Coldman

Although it’s only five tracks long, OLOYE COLDMAN‘s latest EP, ‘034’ features 16 (yes,16!) artists contributing to a spectrum of sound where western urban influences meets the gleeful presence of the Motherland (more specifically, Nigeria).

Here in this set, you’ll experience the real vibrancy on a modern take of Igbo music, working with the sweet runs of piano keys and trumpet, giving a real bluesy jazz feel (listen to ‘Why E Be’), straight up chilled hip-hop/R&B trap effort (in ‘What’) to old school-hip-hop-inspired sound with vocals giving a rich motherland feel (listen to concluding track, ‘Gone’).

In this bio, Oloye described his EP as ‘the first of its kind in Nigeria’ – he’s not wrong – as this mini set is bursting with massive sounds which will leave lasting impression. Have a listen to the EP below…

I AM BORN’s Visuals For Track, ‘Like The Pain’ Offers Hope After Despair

Stacey Bournes, otherwise known as I AM BORN, has unveiled stunning visuals for track, ‘Like The Pain’. Co-director Natalia Nunn, I AM BORN and Blake Cyrier who was the main DP for the project, wanted to depict a tale of victory and a journey to peace; finding a place of self-love, balance and a healthy self-expression.

With so many of us struggling with mental health at this time, they wanted to bring hope by illustrating the fact that it’s possible to reverse any downward spiral we may find ourselves in and re-imagine life in any way we choose, as long as we don’t give up.

Shot in LA, the video features a selection of talented artists that I AM BORN greatly admires and has been incredibly inspired by. Danielle Acoff (who was featured in Michael Jackson’s last music video for,’ A Place With No Name’), Darren Tait and Natalya Oliver were dancers in the film, with Roy Sadakane and Justin Possenti providing cinematic contributions.

‘Like The Pain’ was written by I AM BORN over ten years ago as a means of catharsis and is part of a collection of work she affectionately calls ‘The Identity of Stacey Bournes’, which consists of hundreds of songs that helped her cope with the highs and lows she experienced whilst living what she thought would be her dream life as a model.

Originally an indie/experimental offering, ‘Like The Pain’ was given a makeover by producer Obsidian Cane, who injected a gutsy UKG drive with soulful R&B undertones. I AM BORN thoroughly enjoyed working on the track as she danced so much during the process. The single was featured on Obsidian Cane’s debut EP titled Reset, released on his label, Wicked Ghost Music back in August.

I AM BORN is also currently working with producers, musicians and DJ’s in different genres on a number of projects taken from the ‘IDofSB’ slated for release in the New year.

‘Like The Pain’ is now available on all download and streaming sites. Check out the official video for the single below…

Co-written with Rob Amoruso and Alice Blake, ‘Younger Self’ is an infectious dynamic track, reminding all of us to let go of imperfections and embrace life’s moments more – a message she would tell her younger self.

“It’s so easy to hold yourself back because of insecurities or fear, but if you don’t work through that fear, you’re going to miss out on some pretty great things,” Caitlin explains. “If you give yourself a chance, you’d be surprised of what you’re actually capable of”.
