Song of The Day: Dok2 - "1LLOGIC" (Feat. Chancellor)

On March 28, for his 28th birthday, Dok2 from Illionaire Records dropped two new tracks, "1LLOGIC" featuring R&B singer Chancellor, and "Straight Up" featuring DJ Wegun from AOMG and Keem Hyo-Eun (from Dok2's sub-label, Ambition). Both songs from the double release are really good.  The music is available now on Google Play, Spotify and iTunes. "1LLOGIC" is today's Song of The Day. It begins with vocals from Chancellor sounding like Usher.  Chancellor sings in English and Korean, and Dok2 gives us melodic rap, also in English and Korean. The song is about how hard they work, and can put you in a laid back, chill mood. Recognize me, you know where I be. Hunnit on my wrist baby. Listen to both tracks on Spotify here.

The black and white stylish visual is captioned with English and Korean subtitles, and is a must watch, even if you've already been rocking with the single, since it was released back on March 22nd. The beat is tight, and the song features Hi-Lite founder Paloalto (who jokingly takes a crack at G2), and label mate Huckleberry P, spitting fire with him. But it's the first verse, that brings you in, especially if you're a person of faith... Monday through Sunday, time flies so quickly. I been keeping busy, almost done with this album too. Go to church on Sunday with my family, our prayers have become a reality. Dad doesn't need to work now, so I pay my tithes gratefully. Overflowing Thanksgiving R-E-D-D-Y.

The video, featuring singer 'Car, the Garden' was uploaded to the H1GHR MUSIC YouTube channel on March 18. And even before you watch it... one look at the artwork released for the track, and you're immediately reminded of Rolling Stone Magazine, and if you're old enough to remember, the Rolling Stones rock band (both got their name from a 1950s song by Muddy Waters, titled Rollin' Stone). And then, there's the 1972 remake by The Temptations (of a single from The Undisputed Truth) called "Papa Was a Rollin' Stone." But getting past the history and nostalgia of the title, the video begins with a man who looks like he could've been on the set of "That '70s Show," as he takes you further back in time, w

Could J-HOPE's "Hope World" Be The Best Mixtape of 2018?

by Nefertiti Jenkins BTS rapper J-Hope has dropped his first mixtape, and a music video ( "Daydream" ) to go with it.  The visual is currently trending in the top ten on YouTube. In less than twelve hours, it's gotten more than 9 million views. J-Hope is also currently trending on Twitter, and maybe it's because he's also a dancer... but the mixtape itself, with seven tracks (in Korean and some English) is worth dancing to.   Dropped on March 1 (or March 2, KST), "Hope World" gives BTS fans a side we don't always get to see from J-Hope. Known for being sweet and goofy, his lyrics go deep with some old school hip-hop beats, and could be on its way to being one of the best mixtapes of 2018.   This is the first solo album for J-Hope (fellow BTS rappers RM and Suga have each previously dropped mixtapes).  The tracks for "Hope World" take us up and down on a J-Hope vibe. Here's our take on the songs... 1. "Hope
