JT RunninMan – Winter (Prod. YOAJM)

They say consistency is key in this game. I can say this man is very consistent with his material. Reigning back in from the land of the nutty, JT RunninMan drops a new track on us just days after releasing a new video. Winter is one of those short and sweet tracks that you wish were longer than what it is. Practically floating on the track with some sting like a young Cassius Clay, the RunninGod keeps at it with his wit and flow cold as the title of this track. You guys can applaud YOAJM for the icy production on this track, this could be another deadly artist/producer duo in the making. Check out the track below. Don’t forget to keep up with everything JT RunninMan on his soundcloud, and at the official Planes! website. Bless.

 

 

 

 

 

WHIT – DOBR

It almost seems as if this young MC dropped his debut EP No Cameras just yesterday. Representing the eastside and all things great about it, WHIT officially drops his follow-up project DOBR. Bouncing between the two projects will give you a better understanding of the progression and growth over the past year. A lot of artist can say they’ve made progression in just a year but, who can really show for it? With tracks such as “Dark Hours, and Fantasy ft. Marnay & Bastard Hootie, WHIT has a way of proving he’s just as good as anyone in the local music scene. The project as a whole is something special from a promising young artist with sky high dreams. Sky isn’t the limit with him as he continues to shoot for the moon. Check out the project in its entirety below, be sure to  keep up with WHIT on his soundcloud and social media outlets. Bless #ShiftTeamFRVR

 

 

JT RunninMan – Guap (Prod. By Victory Lap)

It almost seems as if the combo of JT RunninMan and Victory Lap is an impeccable one. Coming back with more heat out of the Nawf$ide and shot by the great NuzLightYear, Guap serves as another example of what the RunninGod can provide with a fully charged spirit gun. This tracks goes to show the wave JT has in mind, and the water is everything but salty.  Just make sure when you’re bumping this track or watching the video, it’s on the block getting that guap! Check out the video below and stay updated by checking out the official Planes! website. Bless.

 

 

IndigoAce! “On ErryThang”.

Fresh off the press from the Nawf$ide, and shot by NuzLightYearIndigoAce! brings us clean, trippy new visuals and single since his recent name change formally known as Ace Boogie. Riding the track with his melodic auto tune, he brings us a sound almost reminiscent of “Understand” from the recently released Planes! album R.I.C.O. Also produced by Victory Lap, he continues to run his own victory laps by providing a hard hitting track.

OG – Get It Go

With 2017 in full effect, Shift Team’s own OG is back with a new single. After announcing that he will be releasing a project a few months ago, he buckled down and dropped 3 songs since. His song “Politicking” has a Joey Bada$$ “1999” feel to it soon as it plays, the production of OG’s music just makes his smooth wordplay even better. Finding motivation in a studio session of his, OG went on to make “Get It Go” The beat includes Sonic The Hedgehog ring sounds during the hook that’s sure to take you back to your childhood. With “Get It Go” OG definitely has a banger on his hands, make sure to go check it out! Stay up y’all. 

Carefully Crafted

With fashion being something that I love and truly care about deeply, I quite often find myself looking for new clothing brands to cop from. I personally really enjoy brands like Stussy, Undeafeated, and 10 Deep. But being in Denver there are plenty of dope brands like Rif.B, Cones, Wue Clothing, Last Ones Left, and many more. After being quiet for the past few years, the Colorado based brand The Crafty Collective is here to pick up where they left off. The brands official release date was January 31st, and there unique Fall/Winter collection has definitely demanded our attention. I sat down with one of Crafty’s founding members Lamont Lynch and we talked about the history of the brand, style inspirations, and much more! Check it out below.


When was Crafty founded and what was the inspiration behind starting it? 

“Crafty Collective was founded around my sophomore/ junior year of high school back in 2012. We bought the equipment necessary to start making shirts and sweaters for ourselves in the basement and called it Crafty. I guess we just had a knack for something different and we had countless ideas of fresh apparel we could make for ourselves”

As a representative of Crafty clothing, how does it feel to see the brand take off how it has so far?

“Its an amazing feeling, almost unreal, especially being that Crafty Collective started as something we just did for ourselves in the basement. So that we could wear something different, for the fun of it kinda thing. People loved it from the jump. The mission was never to copyright our brand and become a business like we are now. After so many people began to ask for it, it only made sense that we supply it. All of the the pieces just came together. We have fun with this whole fashion thing so it feels good that people see the love and time we take into making some of freshest apparel in the city”


When it comes to fashion who happens to be your biggest style influence and why? 

“My biggest style influence has always been my mom, she is one of the freshest people I know. What I love about her approach to her style is that she doesn’t believe in being boxed in to “Norms” and can give a damn about other peoples opinions. Dress to express and you’ll impress”

What can we expect to see from Crafty’s upcoming 2017 Spring collection? 

“I don’t want to give away the spring vibe just yet! What I will let you know is that we will continue to evolve and continue to provide feel good clothing for those who love Crafty and keep the flame keeper lifestyle on top. Those who have been following us since day one see our progression and how far we have came. We will continue to push that envelope. We see no boundaries.”


The culture in the city has been expanding rapidly, how do you feel about the direction the city is going in? 

“THE CULTURE IS EXPANDING RAPIDLY,  and I love it. Having been raised in denver, I know a bit of culture and style is what Denver has been missing. Im just happy to be apart of it and be able to be a driving force to this”

Besides Crafty apparel, what is your favorite brand?

 “I like “10deep” because they started out a lot like we did. To see how big they have become getting it the same way we do is inspiring. It shows that it can be done. Not that I ever had doubt but it feels good to have an established brand set a bar for us to aim to exceed.”

Dope Friday’s Hosted By Kilroy

It’s 2017 and we had to hit y’all with another Dope Friday’s! This is this very first entry for us of the new year, so it’s a special one! In the addition of Dope Friday’s, I’ve decided to bring in the new year with some new tracks, also mix in some our great local artist, and add some bonus throwback tracks for some of you looking for a nostalgic experience on this dope Friday. We have a lot of music to wait for throughout the year both local and mainstream, but it’ll be worth the wait! Give my picks a listen and feel free to lob suggestions for the next playlist, it just might be featured in the next one. Bless!

 

Bastard Hootie – Life of Slumpilization 

Bro Fam had a very productive 2016 as far as making moves is concerned. Bastard Hootie made sure to end the year with a bang with his project “Life After Slumpilization”. With recent releases like Trayce Chapman’s “The Izm”, and KMA’s “Wav.Form” it’s not hard to see who extremely stood out this year. His last project “UA” had multiple bangers like “Can’t You See” featuring Marnay, and the Treezy produced tracks  “I Still Love Her”. After announcing his project “Life After Slumpilization”, Bastard happened to share a promo video which received lots of attention for his project. The 11 track project holds a feature from Denver’s own 6th Ave. The first song titled “The Bastard Freestyle” is bound to immediately snatch your attention due to the crazy beat selection it possesses (thanks to TreezyMadeIt). With stand out songs like “Da Box Ain’t The Same” and “DATAINTMENOMO” you will surely find yourself somewhere nodding your head. Smoke one and listen to the project! Stay up!

Dope Friday’s Hosted By Kilroy

Happy Friday once again y’all! I hope everybody is breaking in the soon to be new year just right, just like us. We would like to present the return of Dope Friday’s, and it’ll be hosted by me, Kevin Kilroy. Show some love to the playlist of dope music I’ve accumulated full of 2016 bangers, both of local and mainstream talent. This is just a short peek of what I’ve been listening to this past year going into 2017. Hope you guys enjoy, have a safe new year! Bless.

 

Trayce Chapman – The Izm 

December 9th should be considered a national holiday for music fans, especially with J.Cole and Ab Soul both releasing their projects “For Your Eyez” and “Do What Thou Wilt” today. Nonetheless, those aren’t the only projects that have been released today, Trayce Chapman blessed us with his long awaited project “The Izm”. With lyrics like “Top 3 when you speak on me, I’m like Nas to the 303”, it’s safe to say that Trayce is back to show us why he’s one of Denver’s premier artist. My favorite song on the project would have to either be “Wildfire” or “Laughing at Nothing” where he showcased his distinctive lyrical ability. The 13 track mixtape holds features from Squizzy Gang’s own AP, and a familiar face to our site Damien The Architect. The other members of Bro Fam are doing things as well. KMA recently just dropped his project “Wav.Form” in November and Bastard Hootie will be dropping his project “Life After Slumpilization” next week. Sit back and tap into your IZM, make sure to check out the project. Stay up!
