Coolie Blow – Q’s & P’s (Prod. by Coolie Blow)

Local, rising artist Coolie Blow is one of the hottest in the city, right now. He finally unleashes a new track and it’s a single from his upcoming, debut project “Earth 2”. This will feature a slew of Tulsa artists and will depict Coolie at his sharpest, yet. On “Q’s & P’s” he’s tossing the alley-oop to himself as he slides over his own, west coast-esque production. The baseline screams G-Funk while the drums knock like the police at your front door. With the addition of chimes and keys, Coolie is able to unload bars in a cathartic manner. He touches specifically on his blessing and his alliances while sliding in subtle boasts and introspection

Four years and running, Tulsa used to sleep

Coolie Blow is aligning himself to be one of the best amongst his peers and his work ethic just might get him there. Get familiar with the artist and watch his first interview to see just how down to Earth (2) he is.  Listen to Q’s and P’s below.

PREMIERE: UMBRA – ZOOMIN (FEAT. ST. DOMONICK)

One of Tulsa’s hottest, emerging rappers is back with another #DINGER, taking assistance from his right-hand man, Umbra. The two continue to build collaboratively and have delivered some incredible pieces; this one is no different. The duo offers us Zoomin: a brief, hypnotic track where Umbra pulls from “Plastic 100 Degrees Celsius” by Sampha and Domonick flows like mercury and rhymes in a stream-of-conscious type manner that only emphasizes the mesmerizing production to the point he has to remind himself to stay focused throughout the track — the two beans are getting to him and Dom needs the dream of a new Rover to keep him determined. This song illustrates the swag St. Domonick oozes, while Umbra provides the perfect backbone to an already poised rapper. Catch the #DINGER below:

On Thursday, June 1st, producers TayMasterChef and LORDFUBU released a collaborative tape, featuring six #dingers. TAYMASTERFUBU is a combination of both rhythmic melody and innovative drum patterns, creating an ultimately authentic sound and marking an iconic milestone in the hip-hop producer spectrum.

A track that caught my attention almost immediately is track “MASTERFUBU006 [OUTRO]” , and initially I heard the instrument bounce back and forth, moving across the octaves, and I can’t begin to estimate my level of excitement when I heard a jazz influence directly affecting the song. This acquisition of music and sound engineering is unlike any other, proven from my non-stop head bobbing. After I heard this song, I called up my homie and told him to drop what he was doing to listen to it. I love the crescendo starting from the beginning, making the listener anticipate the hard hook drop. At this point in the tape, I’m thinking “how could it get any better than this“. Continue reading
