Song of the Day: We Ain’t The Same – Thugz SNE

THUGZ SNE‘s latest track,’We Ain’t The Same’, highlights all the things that separate him from the rest of the rappers of today.

The song starts with a sample of Brooklyn NY rapper Maino saying: “This year, I wanna be so honest… I wanna look a couple of these niggaz in their eyes and be like… Nigga…. I don’t like you” a sentiment that resonates all too well with the rest of the song.

The fast paced instrumental (pieced together by @farooqgotaudio) feels like the perfect foundation for such a brutally honest theme, apologetically stating: “we are not the same & I don’t like you” something which is made abundantly clear throughout the chorus.

The boisterous track also pays homage to the late great Nipsey Hussle by the way of: “I can never see you as my equal, fuck I wanna hear yo CD for?” a sample from his ‘Victory Lap’ single.

Available on all platforms, ‘We Ain’t The Same’ sets the pace for the next 12 months of singles and visuals. Get the taste of the first installment below…

New Music Video: Blessings – Thugz SNE

Hailing from Wednesbury, West Midlands is THUGZ SNE and his brand new visuals for his 2015 track, simply entitled ‘Blessings’.

Sampling from Jaded Edge’s hit ‘Walked Outta Heaven’, this young emcee gives thanks to the big man above (GOD, just in case you’re wondering) for all the blessing he receives – even though he didn’t recognise them at first hand!

‘Blessing’ is taken from THUGZ SNE‘s 14-track album, ‘Streets 2 Tha Studio’, available on iTunes…but before you head off, check out the visual to this smooth slammer.

Album Review: Fiero – Population 7

population-7-fiero-album-cover

Hailing all the way from the West Midlands, nine piece hip-hop/neo-soul act POPULATION 7 have dropped their brand new album entitled ‘Fiero’, earlier this week.

A real sultry soulful/jazz fusion takes centre stage and swagger throughout the nine-track production, with smooth Erykah Badu-esque vocals and the occasional, laid-back freestyling giving the slick combo that extra kick.

I’ve found a real treasure here – so don’t disappoint me now and CHECK IT OUT!!!

Must Listens: Blindspot, Slugums, Wi – Fi, Fiero, Paz6 & FoxP2.
