"Bullet" (Mixtape) - by Zuse #Review

So the Kingston Jamaica artist named Zuse is making some major noise in the underground circuit. Currently residing in Atlanta, GA on the Southside, he’s built a quiet rumbling within the city. Zuse is far from one dimensional rapper, and doesn’t rely on his Jamaican accent to stand-out. Strangely enough he has a familiar sound only because you think you’ve heard it before, but his content & delivery brings a completely new package. Reggae, hip-hop, and trap all mixed into one is a dynamic recipe. The ATL transplant is successfully demonstrating his ability to execute all three styles with the ability to create a cohesive project. I feel like I’m talking about some character from Dragon Ball-Z or something. The boy is nice! Understand what I’m saying because you all know I don’t hand out praise easily.

Last month when the project dropped I had it the day it was available. I listened to it in its entirety a couple times. Quickly I added it to my phone, so I could really get a feel for the project and hear the mix in my car. I was definitely impressed with the way the album was tracked out. The sound is cut up into individual segments that segue into each other. “Frank White” is one of my favorite tracks on the tape, and is usually the first record I play for new listeners. Zuse pays homage to the legendary Frank White, and Jay-Z in the same song. This isn’t unusual behavior for a typical Northern artist, but for a Jamaican from Atlanta, this is very unusual. I noticed Zuse is a hip-hop head because he points out notable influences on his sound, like he mentions Master P. on “Way It Work.”

The slight use of auto-tune compliments the natural bravado of Zuse’s voice and is surprisingly pleasing to hear on certain records. Whether in-house or not, the executive producer on the project did a great job of tracking & beat selection. I’ve only heard one complaint regarding clarity in terms of understanding what Zuse is saying. I’m not seeing this as an issue at all. To those that are having a hard time understating, you probably still wouldn’t understand with an interpreter. Overall this is a solid project. (Steak Knife)

"Murder By Numbers" - by Rapsody #NewAudio

Rapsody snaps on Pusha T “Numbers On The Board” instrumental with precision. The North Carolina emcee is consistently proving why she deserves the stage. Not a lot of other artist in the game can go bar for bar with her, but she’s also able to produce full projects. We haven’t had many artist in the last few year capable of doing both. Most of the time, really strong freestyle emcee’s can’t make good records and vice versa.

Smoke DZA is Holding Harlem Up With The Help of a Few Friends: “Bamma Weed” (feat. Flatbush Zombies)

"Bamma Weed" is one of those instant elevation records. To all those who have an old school vehicle, no matter the make or model as long as it doesn’t have power steering you understand the vibe this record puts out. The track is just long enough for you and you best friend to make it to the 7Eleven around the corner, grab some snacks, supplies, and get a slurpee. This is a dope collaboration to help reunify NYC and connecting time gaps within the culture. Flatbush Zombies kicks some dope lyrics and kush god came through with the Harlem heat like always.

#ADIDAS Is Taking No Chances Defining Who The Elite Sportswear Brand is This Summer 14

Adidas gets geared up for an extremely big spring/summer 2014 push with new pieces dropping across various lines of the company. Check out the video below with DESIGN DIRECTOR JOSEFINE ABERG & TOPSHOP CREATIVE DIRECTOR KATE PHELAN.

These new looks, textures, and color pallets are definitely going to turn some heads. With a high fashion quality being added to the already popular apparel, I think chances of seeing some of these items dressed up and worn to less sporty events is very high. Don’t be surprised when you’re the only one not in #Adidas at the next day party in your city. If you’re a regular at thekitchenfeed.com don’t say we didn’t warn you.

"Doin’ My Thang" - by Scotty #NewMusic

Scotty can’t be stopped. His work ethic cannot be denied right now. This new record is dope for multiple reasons. The flow switch is becoming a specialty for this guy. illmind produced a crazy record and Scotty finished the project off with a monster delivery. The cover art was dope also with the “Do The Right Thing” theme.

"Draft Day" - by Drake #JonnyManziel

With draft day on the approach Drake decided to drop a few lines over a classic Lauren Hill sample. The Toronto emcee is talking NFL innuendo, praises his friend and top draft pick prospect Jonny Manziel. This isn’t the Jay-Z response everyone is waiting for, but the randomness of Drakes releases definitely keeps everyone on their toes.
