Artist/Producer Adeoluwa had reached out to 214Today about his most recent beat tape he dropped on Datpiff .com titled “welcome to the jungle” we were very impressed with the project it has a very raw sound with low horns and various synths and bass but still stays structured in rhythm and has beats that would favor most rappers. Here is a beat we favored on the tape titled “Level up” which perfectly describes the style of beats Adeoluwa has in store for artists. look out for this up and coming musician for he is only going to get better! Follow him on twitter @RealCrownOfGod and check out the rest of his beats on his soundcloud https://soundcloud.com/adeoluwa

My Favorite Track titled “The Haze” from DFW artist Sam Lao’s latest Project “West Pantego” is a great mix of vocals and rhymes that really show Lao’s versatility as an artist, being able to sing and spit one in the same. Directed by local Jeremy Biggers, this visual is a great illustration of the song. West Pantego is available for purchase on itunes at https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/west-pantego-ep/id691066824 and also for download on her bandcamp. http://samlao.bandcamp.com/ Follow @THE_SamLao on twitter for performance and song updates!
