Music Submission: Trendz Morrison – “Blizzard”

Trendz Morrison grew up in Miami, but currently based in Atlanta, GA.  He has a power packed flow that has to really be listened to carefully to be appreciated.  And it’s no wonder why his lyrics pack a punch, he is said to have studied the greats like Biggie, Tupac, Nas and even Mos Def.  Growing up, he learned how how to bridge the gap between music and emotion.  Later, that would push him to turn his hobby of rapping into a profession.  Music is a creative language to him, which is spoken well with messages incorporated in every verse. Check out “Blizzard” and tell us what you think!

Artist / Songwriter, Rain, let’s us know of the “The Hard Way”

What is the hard way? to many it’s a path not known, but to some it’s the only one ever known. The artist, Rain, based out of Atlanta, GA. makes it clear in his song entitled “The Hard Way,” that he has been through the fire and making it out on top. The song is from his debut album called Built Like Me, which is set to be released this fall. The song, with its original and trap soul sound, takes me back to the days where artist would talk more of the journey than the destination. And man does he have one to tell. From winning numerous talent shows in high school, to receiving his first break at the age of 17, performing his own record at Harlem’s legendary Apollo Theater. Feeling that music could lead to something bigger, Rain moved to Atlanta to join the urban music scene. His start there was rough, living homeless in the city, sleeping in cars, and staying with friends until he could get on his feet. Things changed once he met with a producer, CJ Williams, which led to his second break as a songwriter.

Rain’s writing credentials are said to have some big names from Chris Brown to Trey Songz, as well as Yelawolf. Although writing has done him good, the desire to be an artist is still burning within him. I’m sure with all the hardships he’s faced on his musical journey, using those experiences can only take him to the top!  So sit back and enjoy the Rain!

Sy Ari Da Kid is one of my favorite upcoming artist out of Atlanta. While he is a native of New York, he has lived in Atlanta for some time now. Sy Ari Da Kid is a multi faced artist– he’s not stuck in one box and I love it! I don’t have to be in a specific mood to enjoy his music. I’ve been waiting patiently waiting for the The Ultrasound 2: The Birth. His listening party last night at the Sledge Lounge, Atlanta was great! The outpouring support from his listeners and artists was totally refreshing.

This project is everything I expected plus more, he really brings you to his world. Don’t worry about hearing about flashy cars, money, women or trap beats on every song. Sit and listen to him tell his story on his life from his perspective, he’s a realist which makes some bars a hard pill to swallow. Sy Ari Da Kid addresses the industry, his love life, his family and his passion. Sy Ari Da Kid makes the type of music that helps one through their day, he makes me proud to be a fan.
