Music Monday | Kent Gone Wild!

If you follow any one from Kent State University, you saw the rap beef that happened on twitter between Joksclub and another Kent State rapper. Not sure how the beef started, but it ended with Joksclub member Leo Light finishing it with a diss record titled Fits Me Perfectly. We all know how I feel about Leo Light – if not, let me fill you in…

Leo Light, originally from New York, brings his unique sound and creativity all the way to Ohio. He has a very original sound that I have never heard before, which is why I rock with his music so hard (I shower to Lost Souls – this is not a game people). Not only is he talented on stage and behind the mic, the guy his hilarious and extremely personable. But, like with any other rapper, if you have beef he’s not afraid to fix it.

Check out his response diss track:

Now I can’t talk about Kent State rappers without mentioning the beautiful and talented Penelope Dollaz. First time I saw her perform in Kent I was in AWE! You don’t see many females rappers in the game who are NOT talking about their box on every track and she can freestyle like nobody’s business right with the boys. She is pure talent and her hair is perfectionnnnnnnn.

Her next project titled Flirting with Strangers will drop soon and I’m confident that it will be nothing less than great. Check out her latest track titled Yeah Hoe that will appear on her next project:

Kent was way too turnt for me on Twitter yesterday but that’s why I love them. They always bring the crazy! Definitely planning to make another trip there soon.

The Last Draft…EVER!

bizzoe draft 5I have been following the Draft mixtapes from the beginning and I have never heard anything like this one. Kwan aka Bizzoe, left his heart on every track and definitely showed he has star potential.

From the first track to the last, Bizzoe and guest including A-Down, Mad Rich, Leo Light and others tell their story of coming from nothing to going through heart ache and suffering, leaving no other option but to “Stack or Starve”.

I don’t usually speak on music but I love when an artist puts his all into a project and Bizzoe definitely did that with this mixtape. Plus, Kwan is a good friend of mine so of course I’m not bias or anything 😉

But in all seriousness, I listen to Kwan’s music just like I would any other artist because he can definitely hang with the best of them. I once heard someone say:

You can’t be an artist without a story

If that is true, then Kwan is for sure an artist!

The drop of this mixtape is only hours away and you can download the Draft 5 at Hot New Hip-Hop or you can click here.
