Just M - Ancient Wisdom
Just M is lethal as he slaughters bar after bar with his heavy hammered pen on Ancient Wisdom.
If the invention of audio speakers existed during the historical times of battle, Ancient Wisdom would be on that rotation. The colliding of Just M’s thunderous cadence and the nefarious Mansus Knight and Nicholas Mendoza beat sets the tone. It’s undeniably unmatched and should be a VIOLATION towards any of his rap rivals. Just M is a drill-grime warrior.
The high energy, swift tempo, and viciously convicting verses stimulate the senses and provide a whole-body recharge that launches you into the day! Contrary to the audible vibe, the message is one of the war’s antonyms; it’s about focus, making your bag, and maintaining your peace. The automatic reaction might be to prepare for war, but the essence of Ancient Wisdom is about remaining unprovoked; like Tommy Egan, fellow Power series fans will understand the theme, he's cold, but he's kind.
“There wasn’t a particular moment that influenced the writing process of Ancient Wisdom. It was more so the sample used in the beat that brought together every element of the track and inspired me to put pen to paper. That’s how Ancient Wisdom was born.” - Just M.
The only criticism IYCM has is the brevity of Ancient Wisdom; it makes you sonically desire more, but let’s be honest, we’re just being selfish at this point. On a different note, it is vital to your health to view the brilliant visual based in Mathare in Nairobi, Kenya, to complete the listening experience.

She's seductive, she's electrifying, she's loco, she is Vanessa Librea, and she's flaunting spicy passion alongside Adrian Swish unapologetically.
These two linked up for their latest release, Crazy.
Amplifying her deep vocals, Vanessa Librea dazzles with her magnetism, mystery and liberty in Crazy. She effortlessly enhances the levels of pure audible raunchiness and seals it with Adrian's smooth melodic verses. Vanessa may be unintentionally channelling specific energy through her sound cause we're getting Sharon Stone x Basic Instinct vibes in terms of sensuality, and we're here for it!
“I wanted to bring a women’s high energy anthem that not only helps through the whirlwind of emotions within a breakup but allows a discovery that there is so much more ahead and someone out there who will make you feel good.” - Vanessa Librea.
High-energy anthem it is, and it's no surprise that Aldwin Cajili is behind the production of Crazy.
RMR Productions should be on everyone's radar; Aldwin proves he's a certified hitmaker.
Crazy is accompanied by hypnotic visuals from Vanessa and Adrian. Expect all the sexiness, all the obsessiveness, and all the craziness captured in 2 minutes and 50 seconds! If you have yet to see it, you're not too late to the party - it was ONLY released 7 days ago!

Kobe White - Waiting
Let's get caught up in the moment of 2023; let the magic simmer, the luminous energy shimmer, and the ceilings shake through the daylight while you keep playing Waiting by Kobe White all through the night.
He's done it once again.
Kobe White's silvery ambient-toned voice sets the scene over Afro beats and sensual R'N'B; it gives versatility over reverie-like piano keys, and it is no surprise that Waiting is produced by Aldwin Cajili.
Waiting exudes zephyr - gentle enough to hear the rhythmic waves beating from internal space; it's audibly opulent as it awakens emotions. It's the type of sound that would complement Burns City's orange-hued sun as it sets over the shimmering waves of Port Phillip bay, enriching an already picturesque experience.
"This song actually took years to write. We started this song in my producer's bedroom. As we were trying to figure something out, I randomly said, ‘let’s do Afrobeat’, and what followed was 3 years of rewrites and countless nights of recording and re-recording until it was perfect." - Kobe White.
It's not limited to Burn City's backdrop either; seeping sonic mutability, Waiting sets the mood for any scene while essentially playing the main character; that's how musically pleasing it is. Lyrically captivating, and whether the theme is love, lust or curiosity, at the end of the day, good things come to those who wait, leaving no room for hesitation.
“This has always been a record I truly believe in, and after a while, you just have to be content with what you make and release it into the world, and I feel that moment has finally come." - Kobe White.
It was WORTH the wait to say the least!
While our hips roll and our senses levitate through Kobe White's frequency, follow the musical rabbit by hitting the link below to listen to Waiting; it's the only track that should be in your rotation!
Ja Harlin - Have Mercy
Starting off 2023 right, Ja Harlin takes us straight to church as he battles with the man in the mirror on his Mick Boulevard produced track, Have Mercy.
Ja Harlin commands attention from the drop with his dominating tone, assertive flow, and soul-infused sample.
Have Mercy acts as a heart-to-heart between Ja Harlin, the audience, and all that is above - we're talking beyond the clouds of Minneapolis.
"I made this song and music video during the Minneapolis riots, and this song represents the aftermath for me. Even though justice was done, the city was still destroyed, and we had to fix it and live in it." - Ja Harlin.
Combining strength and honesty, Have Mercy reflects on actions knowing specific outcomes are necessary.
Without overshadowing the known struggle, the reality is all that matters is the process of change which starts with a challenging but necessary choice, and as the observer, you just gotta have mercy.
"It really came to life when I wrote the chorus, I love to write, so I ended up with 3 or 4 verses for the song but ended up with just 2 after I wrote the chorus last. It's simple, but every word has so much meaning behind it that it solidified the two verses you hear in the track." - Ja Harlin.
Directed by Cold Climate Productions, Have Mercy's visuals are readily available on YouTube (link above). Run up the plays of Have Mercy and keep an eye on this space, Ja Harlin has a lot to say, and he's not going anywhere anytime soon!
