New music from the homie Praverb is always welcome. He doesn’t have that watered down sound where he’s dropping a weekly this-or-that joint. He’s just about that quality music and you know how I feel abou DJ Grazzhoppa. A humble artist with an amazing skill set.
Now with regards to this song, I’ll let Praverb give you the background himself:
“The Social Network” is a creative track that was inspired by GZA’s “Publicity” and “Fame”. I decided to compile a list of Social Networks and incorporate them into a rhyme. The song is produced by New Zealand based producer SoulChef. I reached out to Dj Grazzhoppa for the scratch hook and he exceeded my expectations.
I can’t tell you all how much I love this track. I have been playing this joint for a couple on months now and just can’t get enough of it. Cane narrates the story of three different high school students as those stories indeed overlap. I love the intricacy and the thought that was put into this track. It is a dope story telling for sure and I think that all can appreciate.
Praverb The Wyse sent me over Cane’s album, My Universe, a while ago. The whole album is really quite good but this song to me is the show stopper and shows the true potential of yet another one of the DMV’s talented emcees.
What area is putting in more work than the DMV right now? Laelo Hood just adds to the dopeness with fresh visuals for the cut, Cool, which is featured on Laelo Hood’s most recent album, Fuck The World. This cut is really on point. I liked it from the moment I first heard it. The window they put together is equally is nice. The whole 70s vibe with the two pane video is definitely a good look.
I saw this single posted on K-Beta’s Twitter account and if K-Beta cosigns you that is good enough for me to take a listen to it. This is a track that would fall in the deep and meaningful category. It talks about spirituality in the context of religion. Producer IDK sets the tone with a very deliberate, slow-paced, yet soulful track allowing the listener to enjoy lyrics from T.E.F.L.O.N., Ancient Mind, and Praverb The Wyze. The hook is blessed by Mina Leon. Check the track below!
