[Miracle MIXTAPE REVIEW] @KemistryMcNeil x Carolina Watz Sup Vol. 4

Khemistry McNeil is ready to show the Carolinas that he’s ready to claim one of the top spots in local trap music in the Carolinas after dropping his mixtape, Carolina Watz Sup Vol. 4,  on September 13th of this year.  On his mixtape’s fourth installment, Khemistry continues to rep his state proudly, shown by the Tar Heels album cover and on his Intro track where he not only exclaims it’s time for Carolina to stand up but to also call out his haters to let them know that they’re hustling to make it just like him; but the difference is that he’s real about his shit.  Which I most definitely got by listening to the mixtape!  Usually, I stray away from the likes of trap music but Khemistry along with the his producers had me vibing like I was in Atlanta circa 2005; plus I always appreciate dope instrumentals.

Carolina Watz Up Vol.4 is hosted by fellow North Carolinian artist Rai Band$.  Khemistry also enlists other local artists such as: Fiyah, Tweezy Boi, Vellie, PopOff, Nick Nass, Castaway, and Huey P Hugo to feature on majority of tracks.  Bo-Bangz was also invited to feature on multiple tracks which doesn’t come as a surprise, taking into consideration how well the two artists’ rap deliveries and energies mixed well together on Khemistry’s previous mixtape, Carolina Watz Up Vol. 3, where he most definitely captured that Southern Summertime vibe in the trap. I can dig the fact that he invited other natives in the booth being that the mixtape is an ode to Carolina, but it would have been nice if he had more tracks just featuring himself on this mixtape considering Volume 3 had a feature on majority of the tracks. 

I would’ve also liked to hear another track or two that the lady fans could cruise too as well!  Pillow Talk featuring Bo-Bangz was a nice addition to the tracklist considering how he still kept it real but also a little manish, it gave the song a little Kevin Gates vibe that’s popular with  listeners now.  I personally, would have preferred a little bit more lyrical content to show versatility as an artist; but a trap song isn’t a dope track if it doesn’t have a dope beat and Khemistry and his producers came through on that note.  There wasn’t really one instrumental that didn’t make me want to roll the windows down in my Jeep and kill my bass; and Big Ole 40’s and Let Me Do Me really did that for me especially!  

Overall, Khemistry McNeil’s Carolina Watz Sup Volume 4 mixtape was pretty dope and I most definitely would keep him and his work on my radar if I was you!

[Leak Alert] EndGame Mixtape Pt 2 Sneak Peak

The market has been patiently awaiting the release of this mixtape called "End Game Part 2" produced by super producer Optimuz Beatz of OBMG Enterprise... 

I first got some of the music soon as the Summer hit and I hear now that there are only a few more artists that the project is waiting on. I think they need to hurry up! 

So anyways, I figured I'd take matters into my own hands and provide a couple tracks that I think need some shine.

The first leak kinda already got released however I am still gonna consider it a leak because I don't think enough people heard this banga. 

T-Gunz is a familiar name if you are a battle rap fan. (L.O.B. !!!) So for me, it was no surprise that this track went hard.

Rari Bari is a talented upcoming artist featured on this tape and I got his track soon as the video dropped in July. I'm not a big fan of trap but this song go hard. The beat is what keeps my attention and I love the drums in this. The energy in this video is crazy, I can definitely hear this in a club. Somebody send these guys my way!

What is a music leak?

This simple post is to simply give the definition of LEAKED MUSIC.

'"...a musical album OR track is leaked if it has been made available to the public on the Internet before its official release date; and is still intended to be confidential."

This means that an artist that releases music early is not leaking it, only releasing it early. The only way a leak can be counted as a leak is if someone in the media releases it expectantly. Like I will start doing when music takes too long to release and I already have it on hand ;)

The purpose of a blog.

So you've thought about it and you've reached out to some websites to feature your music. Now what? Do you even know why you wanted the web features? Do you even know why they are beneficial?

Just a picture of
Meek Mill & The Game
It's all about increasing your brand outreach or deepening the relationship with your current fans. To do that, there are four reasons YOU should be investing in press releases to get on blogs.

Truth is, most of the people that follow your talent think of gossip sites or lifestyle sites when they hear the word blog. You don't always have to be in some type dramatic situation just to get on a website. However, on social media like Facebook, satire sites get the most shares than that of real entertainment. This is another reason why, if you aren't actually planning your campaign, you wont invest into getting on a blog. 

Blogs create authority and credibilityIt's a cyber platform to perform and/or stand on.

Relate-abilityBlog audiences like to read content that has a personality. A press release gives the blogger information and a good blogger will add their own touch to the feature. This is how they get constant web traffic. Basic bloggers who merely copy & paste will give you the platform but it is up to you to share and market the feature.

Search engine resultsThe more consistently you post to your blog with relevant information people actually care about, the more likely search engines, such as Google, will start displaying your blog on their result pages.

Re-purposing content - If you have a smart writer on your team (like me), they will never duplicate any work. You can turn old blog posts into portfolio pieces, video blogs, presentations, etc.
