Armond WakeUp | Even If I Lose Pre Order/Release Date | @armondwakeup @illect

 

 

 

Armond WakeUp is set to release Even If I Lose, the follow up to 40 Days, on Tuesday February 27th via Illect Recordings. The project features several guests including: Sean C. Johnson, Jonathan Baker, DJ Because, and Brieah Taiye. Production credits include: Tee-Wyla, Ess Be, Doc, J. Rhodan, and Jonathan Baker.

Armond shares, “Even If I Lose is an album concept I’ve had for a few years, but didn’t feel a release to write it until February 2017. I was praying for direction & I heard God say “you’ve always created these projects about a concept & fit Me in them. When are you gonna create a project about Me?” Even If I Lose is me stripped down to nothing, but it is easily the strongest music I’ve ever created. It’s energetic, it’s confrontational, it’s powerful.

Even If I Lose is the official follow up to Armond’s 2013 album Kairos. The theme scripture for Even If I Lose is Romans 8:28, which tells us that “all things work together for the good of those who love God & are called according to His purpose“. All things aren’t necessarily “good”, but they work out for “our good” because God loves us & has created us for a purpose beyond what we can imagine.

Even If I Lose will be available at all download and streaming outlets February 27th.

Ozay Moore | Transparent See Audio | @OzayMoore @EssBe517 @illect

 

Ozay Moore releases another single for his new project ” In The Wake Of O” titled “Transparent see“. Self deception sabotages personal development and can be toxic in the way of establishing healthy relationships. “Transparent See“, is a plea for truth… Gods truths. To see things how He sees them. Sometimes it’s hard to pinpoint the source of hard wired thinking errors or unveil the motivations of the heart. Truth is the entry point to liberation.

Nomis | Heart Headed Audio | @NomisHipHop @sintax_ds5

I’ve got one lyric pointed at your head for start, the other one is pointed at your heart“. The illustrious words of the late Hip-Hop icon, Guru birthed the concept behind, “Heart Headed“. How do we react to today’s social climate, political issues, or even our day to day struggles? Do we respond with a honest analysis of the situation, or do we lead with heartfelt compassion? Nomis reminds us that the answer is, both. Our heads administer the hard truths we seek in solving what ails us, while our hearts provide the empathy needed to address the aches and pains of a fallen world. “Heart Headed” begins with a somber tone reflecting those pains, but ends with an idealistic pronouncement of the perfect marriage of Heart & Mind.

Armond Wakeup | The Worth Video | @Armondwakeup @illect

 

 

 

 

 

“The Worth” is the apex of my most recent EP “40 Days” & perfectly sets up the the next chapter of music for me “Even If I Lose”.

The idea behind “The Worth” is simple. Society encourages us to find identity & worth in what we do & what we’re good at & who we know. But if you live long enough, you know all of those things eventually lose their luster & die off. The value is never the same from when you initially got it & it never provides the satisfaction that it advertises.

The Bible tells us over & over that our worth is in Him. Understanding, believing & embracing that we were created by Him & for Him produces a worthiness that transcends time, space & effort. That’s what I wanted to communicate with this song. – Armond Wakeup

Drew Smith | Destiny Audio | @The_DreamR @kmayfieldmusic @Sohhpr

 

 

 

Rapper/singer Drew Smith the DreamR is finishing up his next project with producer Kevin Mayfield and leading the new catalogue is his new record DESTINY featuring his daughters ANIYA & AUBREY Smith with Violinist Somer Jordan.

You know the part in a movie when the main character is driving through a valley, the mountains are finally coming to an end, and hope starts creeping back in their eyes because in the distance they can finally see their destination? Yeah!, this is the sound track for that moment. There’s no way you can listen to this record and not feel deeply connected to your biggest desires and dreams.

Destiny is the spark that ignites the flame for you to pursue what you’re most passionate about. This song captures what determination & pushing through life feels like.

On this record, not only are you inspired by the lyrics but also by the harmonious sounds of father and daughter. Destiny is a classic that the whole family can enjoy. But don’t just take our word for it, Check it out and see for yourself!

I wrote this song for the people in the world who live, breathe, and sleep that one thing that lives in the depth of their bellies, that thing that they can’t take no for and will work until they get that yes, and I’m making fatherhood a big deal in the culture of hip-hop.”Drew Smith
