Sir 7000 – “Last Night at the Portal” (EP Review)

Ceo of Baps University, Sir 7000, is a hip-hop artist who’s done nothing but innovate himself and his brand over the last year. From his Quarantine Tapes series during the heart Covid-19 pandemic last year to now, this visionary has pushed himself in all regards. While a year ago, my main criticisms with his music came from his inability to hone his excitement and find his sonic niche, he has come full circle, killing these criticisms on his new ep “Last Night at the Portal.”

In a generation where attention spans are at an all-time low, Sir shows he’s fully aware of this, keeping things relatively short at eight tracks and keeping listeners on the edge of their seats throughout. From his rapping ability to his production skills, Sir shows his development as an artist as he dabbles with an array of flows, pockets, and styles. From the haunting intro “The Firmament” to the soothing outro “The Wind” with Ambeeka, Sir is constantly showing off his versatility. Within the 20 minute run time, “Spaceship” was a definite stand-out due to its deep subject matter and intense approach. 7000’s confidence jumps out at you, and his vocal control and pitch changes keep you glued to your seat till the tracks crashing end after its climatic beat switch. “Villain” was another highlight with its detailed instrumental, fast-paced tempo, and catchy rhythm. 

While on past projects, I have been harsh on Sir 7000 for the lack of ambition and fine-tuning in his instrumentals, it’s safe to say this is his best-produced record to date. From the Funkadelic sample on “The Basics” to the abstract layers on top of the vibey drums on “Tina,” Sir has taken a huge step when it comes to the quality of his soundscapes. When it comes to the mixing on this project, the instrumentals and vocals mesh together seamlessly, which makes the cutting-edge artistry displayed throughout the project’s duration shine all the more. 

Overall, “Last Night at the Portal” is Sir 7000s best work to date and his first major step into reaching his full potential. Between the amazing production, unmatched versatility, and passionate rapping, Sir is so easy to fall in love with, and this brief to-the-point record leaves you wanting more. If you want to keep up to date with Sir 7000 and where his journey takes him next, be sure to follow @IAMSIR7000 on Instagram!

Rating: 7/10

Highlights: Versatility, Passioante Rapping, Production

Insane Clown Posse – “Yum Yum Bedlam” (Album Review)

This is the highly anticipated 16th full-length album from Detroit horrorcore duo Insane Clown Posse. Consisting of Violent J & Shaggy 2 Dope, a lot of cats don’t know that 3 other members came & went during the first 5 years of the group’s inception. Not only would The Duke of the Wicked & the Southside Strangla go on to create seminal wicked shit albums like The First 6, but they gained an extremely loyal fanbase in the process & their self-owned Psychopathic Records became an independent hip hop powerhouse as the label’s roster continued to grow. They dropped a prelude EP earlier this year called Yum Yum’s Lure to widespread backlash amongst the juggalos, so J & Shaggs decided to redo the whole album from scratch & drop it in time for the 28th annual Hallowicked show.

After the intro, the first song “Here Comes the Carnival” kicks off the album celebrating the titular mythology that ICP is known for over a feel good rap rock instrumental from Brian Kuma whereas “Wretched” follows it up with a morbid trap banger produced by Devereaux about Violent J being fucked up in the head. The wicked clowns later go back & forth with each other for the rubbery “Clown Drippin’” basically putting their own spin on swag, but then “Gangsta Code” has more twangier tone to it with the help of Mike P. talking about living & dying by the streets.

Meanwhile on “Queens”, we have the clowns seemingly taking shots at their protégés-turned-foes Twiztid over a mystical trap beat from Mythic Mindz just before “Panic Attack!!!” works in a guitar for J to talk about going off the walls mentally for 7 minutes. “Fuck Regret” creepily declares remorse as the Devil’s work, but then “Insomnia” takes a more cloudier route detailing J’s struggles with such as announced at the Gathering a couple months back.

“Heart & Soul” is an empowering ode to give all your love while “The Drunk & The Addict” goes back to the trap direction with the help of Shaggytheairhead telling the story of ICP themselves being dependent on booze & drugs. “Don’t Touch that Flower” sees Str8jaket bringing in an acoustic guitar advising to be cautioned by the Yum Yum Flower while “Slap Nuts” is a more heavier cut talking about cats falling for their jokes.

I love how J uses “Bitch I’m Fine” as a chilling way of responding to those worried about his heart failure diagnosis while the song “Carnival of Lights” is a warm look at the camaraderie of the juggalo family. The penultimate track “Ain’t No Time” vulnerably addresses an ex of his over a guitar & finally, “Something to See” ends the album on a sweeter note looking back on their careers up to this point.

Despite all the ups & downs we’ve experienced to get here, Yum Yum Bedlam has to be my 3rd favorite Joker’s Card in the 2nd Deck right behind Bang! Pow! Boom! & The Mighty Death Pop!. Sonically, it’s really cool to hear them fuse the rock elements from The Great Milenko & mixed them together with some of the more trap-flavored cuts from Fearless Fred Fury. Conceptually, the themes of loyalty are displayed with an incredibly unique & profound perception.

Score: 7/10

Rev. Fang Gory & Sutter Kain – “Violence Solves Everything” (Album Review)

Rev. Fang Gory is an MC from Detroit, Michigan who came up in 2007 off his full-length debut E’ville Dead. This was followed up with The Last Gryndhouse on the Left & A.A.S.K (Afro-American Serial Killer) throughout the previous decade but after a 5-year hiatus, he’s joined Sutter Kain’s independently owned Never So Deep Records & is enlisting him to fully produce his 4th full-length album.

After the “Violence” intro, the first song “Let That Bitch Die” is a rock/boom bap crossover to start off the album quenching for blood whereas “Black Nazi” provides some social commentary & the screams in the background of those dusty drums make it sound much more darker. Donnie Darko tags along for the confrontational “Tooth & Nail” weaving in a thrash metal sample in the background just before “Death Poll” comes in with an aggressive riot starter. 

Meanwhile on “You’re My Vengence”, we have Donnie reuniting with Fang Gory on top of some pianos calling out the cats biting leading into both of them sticking around for the trap banger “44” talking about being strapped at all times. The song “Death Comes in Many Forms” finds Naymez coming into the picture for a pessimistic diss towards the bitch-made dudes out there while the penultimate track “The Killing” weaves in a chipmunk soul sample talking about a serial killer. The album ends with “Tales from the Kabbalah”, which is Fang Gory over a wailing guitar riff about being psycho.

For those who’re fans of both parties, I can argue that it’s Fang Gory’s best work yet. I felt like the features were a little too much since it takes up about half the album, but the dude is on a whole ‘nother level lyrically & Sutter Kain of course stays true to his signature ghetto metal sound throughout.

Score: 7/10

ICYMI: Woman Claiming To Be DMX’s Child Enters The Late Rapper’s Estate Battle

DMX rapper's estate

DMX’s alleged 15th child is looking for money from the late rapper’s estate.

A woman claiming to be the child of the legendary late Hip-Hop artist DMX came forward in the rapper’s estate battle. Reportedly bringing the total of children he allegedly fathered to 15.

Page Six reported over the weekend that Raven Barmer-Simmons is hoping to get her share of the estate after coming forward earlier this month and claiming she was X’s daughter.

Trusts and estates attorney Herbert Nass says before Barmer-Simmons receives any funds, she must first submit a DNA test to determine if her claims are legitimate.

DMX, real name Earl Simmons, died from a cocaine-induced heart attack, which prevented circulation to his brain. He was 50 years old.

DMX mural in hometown is paying tribute to the late rapper.

Last week Judge Blackwood appointed DMX’s three sons Xavier, Tacoma and Sean Simmons as the temporary administrators of the estate of their late father. All three of his sons are from X’s 16-year marriage to Tashera Simmons.

DMX’s fiancée Desiree Lindstrom, who is the mother to his 5-year-old son, Exodus, also applied to the court to be legally declared his “common-law wife,” but the judge denied.

Despite being in debt at the time of his death, DMX’s estate is worth an estimated one-million-dollars.

ICYMI: Dave Chappelle Said What He Said, Not Apologizing For “The Closer”

Dave Chappelle said what

If “I said what I said” was a person, insert Dave Chappelle.

Comedian Dave Chappelle is finally speaking out about his controversial stand up special “The Closer.”  During his show in Nashville over the weekend, Chappelle remained unapologetic saying, “I said what I said.” 

He made it a point to clarify he is willing to meet with members of the LGBTQ community, as many have called his special transphobic. 

Netflix employees have been protesting for more inclusive working conditions because that’s where audiences can watch “The Closer.” 

Chappelle joked he’s the only one not allowed in their offices. He said he would meet with members of the transgender community on a few conditions.  First, they have to watch his special from beginning to end and they can only meet on his terms, as he will not be summoned.
