BEWARE X Stu Skaggs – Bang Bang

14 Dec

Stu Skaggs is veteran emcee but newcomer to the scene who showcases his lyrical abilities well alongside another area heavy hitter Chavis Chandler. The BEWARE production underneath mashed with Stu Skaggs delivery on this one had me feeling reminiscent of a late 90’s Dr. Dre production. Chavis Chandler comes in on the 3rd verse finishing off the song nicely & the two mesh well together. If this is your first time tuning into Stu it makes for a very solid introduction, I know I’ll looking to hear more as it arrives & I’ll be sure to share it with you guys down the road.

Always a great feeling to see your vision come to life. Well, until your vision kills you, everyone else, then takes over the planet. Watch the clever video for ALLiTiZ’s hell-raising single “iNFLUENCE” and see the 4th Street spitter’s vision of an artificial intelligence uprising come to life via various clips that compile the sinister creation concept.

Next level game.

Influence REMIX COVER

Can’t keep up with all the new technology? That’s intentional. On the “iNFLUENCE (Remix),” ALLiTiZ warns of rapidly advancing tech taking over and how our willingness to build our replacements will eventually catch up with us. Chavis Chandler is causing his own “Influence” right now, going up like drones and plugging into the game like a D-Wave supercomputer.

Listen to “Influence” below.

Payroll Giovanni, Royce Da 5’9″ & Chavis Chandler – “Triumphant” (Prod. By BEWARE)

Royce Da 59 Payroll Giovanni Chavis Chandler Triumphant BEWARE

When we started making Woodward Ave, about a year and a half ago, I never would have imagined being able to orchestrate a record like “Triumphant.” Getting features from a 1st Ballot Detroit Hip-Hop Hall Of Famer like Royce Da 5’9″, the illest street rapper in the city in Payroll Giovanni, and a game-changing vocal talent like Chavis Chandler – there’s no way. Well, I was wrong. Did that. Everyone was gracious and receptive of our concept. Relationships were made that will stand a lifetime. Powerful tunes were manifested. Shit, we premiered the song on Fake Shore Drive, a site I’ve read for a decade and the staple of Midwest rap online.

“Triumphant” is an understatement.
