CHOZEN – “Forever Live On” (Music Video) via @lisafordblog

"I grew up not knowing my father and only had my momma to lean on. I learned how to become Independent as an adolescent, however, I turned to the streets which only made me harder until I got sentenced to 7 years in Florida State Prison. Inside, I started writing songs about everything that was going on in my life. I was going through some thangs so I made a change to better my life. I took all of the experiences in my life and spoke about it through my music. So now you guys can really feel me...ALL my Blood, sweat, and tears." - CHOZEN

DRAKE Comes Out Swinging On Meek Mill – “Back To Back” (New Music) via @lisafordblog

Drake took it back to the way Hip Hop is suppose to be done...playing the dozens through music. No matter who and what comes at you, just make music. No matter what the circumstances and drama you have in your life, just make music. We don't want to hear about your love affairs...just make music. On this blog, we don't care about the gossip...just make music. And that's what Drake did. He bodied Meek with "Back To Back". Let's see if Meek...the comeback King, will respond.

VIC MENSA x Kanye West x Skrillex (Music Video) via @lisafordblog #MusicMonday

I'm featuring one of my favorite new-school rappers for Music Monday... VIC MENSA. Thissongissick.com writes, "This year Vic has already collaborated with Kaytranada multiple times and with Kanye on one of the hits of the summer with “U Mad” while recently being signed by Jay Z’s Roc Nation. We previously heard a live version of his collaboration with Skrillex, “No Chill,” but now we get to hear a radio rip of the studio version, and it exactly what we were hoping for. Skrillex brings his relentless drums and wonky horns as he proves he can produce hip hop as well as he does with his other production efforts. Vic goes in on this heater spitting choppy, lyrical verses while the beat drops in & out and he adds a catchy hook that has us impatiently awaiting more info about his debut studio album, Traffic."
