"Live This" - SonReal feat. Madchild

SonReal feat. Madchild
Audio


"Live This" is SonReal's 2nd official release since his most recent project, One Long Day. It isn't surprising that he teamed up with Madchild for a track since he appeared in SonReal's "Every Where We Go" Music Video. I recently met SonReal at his show in New York City in July and he is one humble dude. He really impressed me by how much fun he was having on stage. I love to see passion in artists while they are on stage and I saw that in SonReal. Very excited to see what is next for this Canadian artist.

Acapella Tuesdays - August 12, 2014

Who Needs Beats, When You Have Bars

Another Tuesday brings another week of acapellas. I am so happy to see new artists joining in every week as well as the artists that are doing it every week. #AcapellaTuesdays is platform for you, artists, to get better at rapping. Think of it like this. If you drop an acapella each week for the next 20 weeks, you will progress as an artist much more than if you didn't. Consider this as 'practice' with an added benefit of your music being shown to a new audience. Hope to see you all back next week!

Featured Artist: Sam Lachow

Sam Lachow
Seattle/NYC
#Huckleberry




Sam Lachow has been on my watch list since I first came across his music early in 2013. I really like that he has many different Hip Hop styles. His tracks can make you think about life and others will make you want to grab a dutch and start partying. Not only is Sam Lachow a singer/songwriter, he also produces beats and directs/edits music videos. He likes to add his style to every aspect of his music.



Sam Lachow has been featured on countless Hip Hop Blogs over the years and for good reason. He has progressed throughout his career but has kept a unique style. His fans span the United States because he has established himself in Seattle and New York City. Huckleberry is Sam Lachow's sophomore album and a very good one at that. He features local artists from Seattle and artists that are well known across the country and has been complemented from Macklemore on how great it is. I am very excited to see what's next for Sam Lachow. Stay tuned.
