WHUT DA FUX UP?
Trey Tuck dropped Price of Fame and we were probably one of the 1st people to get the iTunes download, no seriously, we bet that the 1st one to get it downloaded, chooses the listening spot. I didn't win but this download was a WIN. We are impressed, and when I say "WE" it's alway about 8 staff members opinions for WDFU posts, and about 7 close friends with blogs/pages/platforms similar to LRMNPC but not better (Ha!) - We get together and discuss music all day for a living.
We hardly EVER do full album reviews, that kind of pressure sucks, but this time there was something to say about every single track! PRICE OF FAME - It was well worth the wait to say the least. 34 seconds into the project we get Trey Tuck going at it!! Short intro to the beat and then straight bars with the 1st song "The Soul"!!! This is the kind of intro we like, show your skill right away, why wait?
2nd song "92 Cents" is a FAVORITE! It's a good track; "when you up they try to milk ya ass like cash cow" - This song sets off the feel that this will be a superior project. It has a rugged feel to it in a sense but the experienced explained really touches imagery that artists don't really reach anymore. Great lyrical content, and ability, ability, ability is the word for Trey Tuck's approach.
"Ruin The Party" is another heater, it's the 1st song with features, but they did not hurt and only helped the super force the album has started with!! It's seriously one of the best we've heard from anyone this year. Yup this album has slid past others we've highly supported.
"Sinnerz" is a much needed type of song, another good lyrical display, and a smooth flowing tune. It's not a filler song, that's a lower class range, this song is a good everyday type listen, very seeable on a playlist on Spotify or iTunes - Hint - Hint...
Break and pause!!! WHUT DA FUX!!! "Running Out of Time" is a true classic. We may use that word a lot in this review, because my god, the production screams "classic", and the content screams, "keep it on repeat!" WELL... That's exactly what we did during a quick break taken before we went through the rest of the album. Listen to this song right now, OMG Status -> LISTEN - New Favorite, ok maybe 2nd favorite, not sure we can't decide... It's DOPE regardless.
OK Back to the album...
Bright side of the story, we've been exposed to the next song, ROCKIN' WIT YA "a woman aint a woman until she knows her worth" - Crazy love song, more like reality in song form. Trey Tuck really touches a few points that many people in relationships can 100% relate to. Worth every minute of listening time.
"Room 414" was a spin on another love story type song. This song is decent, some others may appreciate it more than we do. HOWEVER The chorus is great, it has good emotion, and the feature Monét adds a good vibe to the song, that's really the A+ gainer. This makes it more than a basic love song.
"9" is a song about Trey Tucks Mom - RESPECT - Ok you really need to have the strongest love and humility for your mother and self to dedicate a track to your mother, slapped right in the midst of making a classic album, he drops a song about his mom. DOPE - It's not corny, it's really a solid piece of art. This guy is genius!
"Were the sacrifices you made really worth the price of fame?" That's how real the title song "Price of Fame" kicks off. The chorus is a feel good tone. Trey Tuck comes on and basically plays the facilitator and motivational speak at the same time on the song. It's realistic life direction. With valuable lyrical content, lessons can be learned from listening to this project, and that is fully respectable.
"WWJD" is a dedication to his religion which is cool, some people can relate to this one as well. The whole vibe of the project is ended with this laid back song. It's that last embrace and farewell on an album that really was worth the wait, the listen, the time, and the motivation put into this project!!!
WOW - What an ALBUM! We want more and more!

Oh when it comes to "STAN" for an artists, ShaiVA is one that we watch daily. We suggest you get on our level because the guy is busy as shit! You can see him dropping constant links to his music, next post he's flexing the ball skills, next post he's doing quick teaser videos, and next post he's saying "hey I'm part of Siege Management!!"
Like WTF? Does this guy stop working? Then to make this an even better story, ShaiVA is setting the bar for future music makers. It's one thing to rap and be really good at it, but take it further just another step. This inspires any other kid listening to his music for inspiration, and now seeing this, is that inspiration we've been looking for.
We are proud to STAN him as much as we do, because it is a great ride that we jumped on! New music coming soon, we know that, no exact dates but we'll try to change that. This is a good segway until the new tunes drop, ShaiVA aint a business man, he's a Business... MAN!

We're jumping right into the good-good right now. We've been waiting for this project "Live From The South-End" to drop and didn't even know it was coming out!! Since we love Jiggie Joe as fans, we say "Dope, Jiggie Joe just dropped a whole new piece of art" hit the play button and we're satisfied. It's a nice, laid back album, like that. In my head "The Jig Is Up" is tough to beat. So a bit biased..

Now about the release timing...

It's a music video right? If it were JUST that, we'd post that sh!t and keep rolling on our way! Obviously this video is special, for 2 reasons; 1. The song is dope, lyrics are good, catchy, yeah good song. Reason 2. Is thee video, the fux we did say THEE video - Upper Class Type fish - It's a good quality, "movie like" art. The song was a good start and the video is the kicker... Watch it below, and we'll say a bunch more random stuff below the video! Deal? Deal!
Now that you saw the video, and you're like, man those LRMNPC fux really got something figured out with their music video taste, we know. No but really, it was a good work of art, just trying to enjoy the song and the video at the same time, could be sorta hard, but it flowed well.
We always say what people are thinking, that's why we say this - Interracial love chasing, normalized on one single less than 4 minute video, WOW. Mind blowing play on this. It even feels real and not lame, which again is another mind bowing moment but we can't count the second one because 2 is a little much, seriously bro, but well played...
Topi Mandela - Who are you? Ahh Whatever, maybe you'll tell us later, but for now, good video, and yes, the movie we got out the deal was nice too. How often can a musician do this? Is this like a debut video that get's us super high, and we wait for more on a long ass low? Just a question that new fans like us would ask... We'll ride this wave for now, and wait for where the rest will take us...
