Lo-fi Bay Area 6 Track Tape for the Trill: Black Philip Vol. 4

Longtime friend of PALM Ducey Guevarra puts forth a new six track EP titled Black Philip Vol. 4. It’s released under his collective Die Slow Posse he shares with his younger brother Aleman. The brothers have collaborated with some underground power players such as their cousin Ramirez, as well as Freddie Dredd and Slim Guerilla. This lo-fi sound Ducey carries embodies his Northern California and southern trap influences. Guest appearance come from Phoenix, AZ emcee Doddy Gatz, as well as Ohsea. The overall dark and grimy feel of the project has a 90s throwback rust to it. Fans of the phonk style popularized in SoundCloud rap will instantly take a liking to this fourth installment of the Black Phillip series. Off the mic, Ducey and Aleman are both full time professional tattoo artists. Their work is highly regarded throughout Northern California. Black Philip Vol. 4 is available on all streaming platforms, but Die Slow Posse has an even deeper discography exclusively available on SoundCloud.

All Hail Danza Review

Seattle emcee Anthony Danza teams up with previous collaborator All Hail Y.T. from Killeen, TX via Delaware to release their 12 song joint album All Hail Danza. The album is made for the heart and soul of the hustler who enjoys the finer things in life. Sonically, the sounds of the 80s and 90s street cultures ring all throughout the project and it pays references to the golden era of hip-hop. All Hail Danza sounds like the score to a 90s gangster movie for its nostalgia of decades past. Each emcee brings his own unique touch to the mic while still having dope chemistry back and forth. Production on the album comes from DJ Manifest, Nic Wheeler, Tavaras Jordan, Freddy River, and 80s Baby.

Illah Talks Being an Indian Rapper, Wallie the Sensei Co-Sign, Musicians Institute, 711, N-Word+more

25 year-old rapper and producer Illah is an anomaly, for how he’s got the streets and social media buzzing all over. Born in New Delhi, India he became a well rounded musician and songwriter at a young age. He grew an affinity for California as he frequently made trips to L.A. growing up. When he got older Illah immigrated to the City of Los Angels to attend the musicians institute where he later graduated from.

With eclectic tastes and influences ranging from Herbie Hancock, to pop-punk, heavy metal, and g-funk, Illah’s style puts his home country on the map, while simultaneously a king a scrapbook of American hood culture. Particularly the rich melting pot of Los Angeles distinguishes his style. Recently, Illah went viral for being fired from his day job at a 7-Eleven store for shooting a music video at the workplace. His dark melodic trap anthem “itriedtokillmyself” has over 1 million streams on Spotify. Now entering the tech space, Illah is working to produce NFT’s and has an upcoming mobile video game dropping which incorporates his music on the soundtrack. In the entrepreneurial spirit he also has an exotic soda called Mango Madness available at a Hollywood smoke shop.

​His latest project FOREIGNER is available on all streaming platforms, with a new school L.A. traffic music sound. Recently Illah was co-signed by Compton rapper/singer Wallie the Sensei. He also has a collaboration with P4K of Baby Stone Gorillas, on the song “Rel Life” with Mishul. Perhaps one of the most fascinating guests on PALMCAST to date, it was truly a pleasure to have Illah stop by. Follow  @ILLAH  on Instagram @indiasonly / @indiasonly04.

The Power of Love & Money

Kevin Fleming, the Founder & CEO of The Urban Buzz (and our former colleague at Gavin in San Francisco back in the day), who is home recuperating from a seriously life-threatening illness – Fleming was recently diagnosed with sepsis and ended up hospitalized for a month – three of those weeks in the ICU. While we are happy that he’s home, Kevin is still looking at an extended recovery, while faced with some immense hospital bills.

Fortunately, Fleming’s good friend Rick Nuhn has established a GoFundMe account to help defray some of these overwhelming medical expenses. Please take a moment to visit the page, and please donate whatever you can to help Rick reach this fundraising goal – and help Kevin Fleming on his road to recovery. Thank you!– Kevin Carter, The Ramp

Emo New Schooler Reflects on Love Lost and Confronts Demons on New Album:

The ever evolving Pittsburgh singer/songwriter JT Loco has returned with a 16-track album titled Wallflower. True to his introverted personality, this project is the ultimate break up album detailing the hurt to healing process a young man faces when love goes south.

​ JT tells PALM “Wallflower is a concept that I came up with on my trip to Los Angeles. I started the recording process out there and finished it in Pittsburgh. Wallflower is not only a project for the outcasts and introverts that avoid the limelight, but also for the ones that have been through heartbreak and suffer from anxiety, depression, substance abuse, and mental health issues. Wallflower is for the ones who got themselves out of a dark place and even ones that are still stuck in their dark place that feel like they can’t escape their comfort zone. Wallflower is the album to get people through their struggles.”

The bulk of Wallflower is produced by Yago, along with help from Jolst, Pekarot, 5Head, Suburban, Yeezo, Thislands, DJ Deathcore, and the closing track “My Everything” is produced by Lil Bextz and Noahmadethiss).

Jam & Lewis Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Members

The Urban Buzz sends sincere congratulations to two brothers from Minniapolis that I’ve personally had a relationship with since we were kids. Terry Steven Lewis and James Sameul Harris, III are headed to the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. and well deserved!

Here’s the story courtest of The Current:

The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame this year will induct Eminem, Dolly Parton, Lionel Richie, Carly Simon and two guys in sunglasses who have scored more No. 1s on the Billboard Hot 100 than all of those other acts combined.

Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis are the rare songwriting and producing team to get into the prestigious hall, and they hope it will lead to more artists like them being inducted.

“Songwriters are like farmers,” said Jam. “When you go to a nice restaurant, the chef is like the artist and you thank him for the meal. But where did he get the food from? Without the farmer, he doesn’t have any food to cook. And that’s the way songwriters are to me.”

The duo’s chart-topping pop hits include Janet Jackson’s “When I Think of You;” Mariah Carey’s “Thank God I Found You;” George Michael’s “Monkey;” Boyz II Men’s “On Bended Knee;” Janet and Michael Jackson’s “Scream;” and Mary J. Blige’s “No More Drama.” They have five Grammys and went into the Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2017.

“I don’t know if you could ever recognize songwriters enough. I mean, they are the fuel that fuels everything,” said Lewis. “There are great songwriters out there that never get the shine that they deserve.”

One song in particular might typify the Jam and Lewis range — “Got ’Til It’s Gone,” which combines a folk sample from Joni Mitchell, the hip-hop of Q-Tip and Janet Jackson’s R&B voice. “We’re kind of at a crossroads or an intersection of a lot of different music,” said Jam.
