This one’s for Shameless fans!
Lucy Camp, formerly known as Luzid, released her first video off her new EP Whispers last week. “The Heart Dies” hits home because it addresses a journey of self-discovery, sustainability, and female strength in her signature raw and vulnerable approach.
I first caught her dark side of sass on The Cypher Effect with Bleezie, Nonames, Krucial, HideandSeekZoo, and Uptown Swuite. Camp’s unique voice, staccato style, and no-bull lyricism made me instantly like her. Now, three years later, her growth as an artist has created no less than spitfire eloquence.
You don’t have to be a fan of K-Pop (Korean Pop) to recognize the Korean hip-hop game blowing up in past years. From old school Drunken Tiger to televised rap competition Show Me The Money, South Korea has come a long way towards embracing hip-hop and the rest of the world is just starting to get a better picture.
Here’s a video from Cycadelic Records newcomer Los aka Los Moonwalker “All the way gone”. Hailing from Southern California, Los is a true Angeleno bringing together his LA roots and Korean heritage to create banging bilingual tracks in California, Korea, and beyond.
In journalistic integrity, I want to share that Los is my blood brother and, whether or not we are related, I only post what I consider quality music.
As a 1st generation Korean-American, I’m proud of my community creating engaging and evocative hip-hop that addresses different facets of the music industry, immigrant life, and representation.
I encourage you all to share your thoughts on this and other topics. Thanks for reading!
