If you’ve been following the Beautiful Mind collective then maybe this video shouldn’t have been too much of a surprise. Still photos were leaked some time ago but now we have the complete visual for this track called “Witness Protection” featuring verses from Blaque Keyz, Travis Mendes, and Jon Bellion along with production from Raw Materials. As some hardcore fans picked up, some of the verses were actual ones from their live performances (not previously released) and now handed digitally to all of you. Some may not understand the concept of putting modifiers on their voices but I liked the “message” behind that move. It forces you to listen to the lyrics instead of being solely focused on the voices. Very dope and somewhat ballsy move on their part. However, it should have gone without saying that this would be today’s jam of the day. Having been used to seeing Trav sing, it was too sick to see him dropping some bars. It’s only up for the Beautiful Mind crew from here.
Hope you guys got your tickets for #TheDefinitionTour. See you in New York and Philly!
I remember when I stumbled upon Dyme-A-Duzin back when I first created this blog and it’s been amazing to watch his elevation since then. He has definitely evolved as an artist and has honed his craft. So, when I noticed he had a new video, I just had to check it out. “Good Lawd” is a banger equipped with a sweet Asian vibe to the beat and features a very Karate Kid-esque visual to boot. Featuring the likes of a very grown up Stro and Wati Heru.
I sat down w/ Rahzel Jr. and he talked about his father, Rahzel of The Roots; working with !llmind, Streetrunner, Sneaky Beanz, and The Vamp, being featured on The Rap Fest with Vado and Saigon; and much more.

Eitan Noyze is a dope DJ & producer that I met at Five Towns College quite a while ago. I’ve always known him to be a good guy on top of being talented so when I learned that he had this video coming out featuring Styles P and D-Block artist Snyp Life, I made it a point to check for it. It’s directed by Da Inphamus Amadeuz. Check it out.

EarthGang is DOPE. I was introduced to their music when I saw them perform at SxSW and immediately became a fan. The performance was energetic and the image is unique. Today, I bring you their new song “Metropolis” feat J.I.D. and produced by Childish Major. Really dope, check it out.

Raz Fresco teamed up with New York based emcee Bishop Nehru to create a dope track called “Equinox” along with a complimentary music video to boot. “Equinox” is another single off of Raz’s forthcoming project called Pablo Frescobar that is set to be released June 2nd on Black Light/Duck Down Music. To all my hip hop lovers out there, I’m sure you’ll like this one.
After perusing the SoundCloud web, I stumbled upon a beautiful song that features none other than JMSN, who has easily become one of my favorite singers. Besides the fact that the man has a voice on him, he just literally can’t create a bad song in my honest opinion. That being said, “Worry” is a beautiful track equipped with flawless production work from Evil Needle. As soon as I heard it, I knew this had to be today’s jam of the day and so you have it peeps. Click that play button and vibe with me!
