#MixtapeReview | Sh’mi “Painting Sounds” (Debut Mixtape) [@RealShmi]

IMG_8168

Sh’mi (pronounced shh-my), the one-third of the Pittsburgh bred hip-hop group Under Rated Hustle (URH) released his latest EP entitled “Painting Sounds”.  Sh’mi took some time to create his sound while group members Joel Kellem (Chill God) and Delay (Pretty P) released projects, videos, and performed on numerous stages. Timing is everything and Sh’mi dropped a nice debut mixtape at the right time.  Unlike his two crew members Sh’mi adds his R&B background into his music. In this extended play Sh’mi, originally from Homewood gives his views on lost love, lost friends, travelling, and getting his music heard. Standout tracks on “Painting Sounds” would be “Phone Calls”, “On the Low” & “Switch”.

What We Liked: The introduction had less shoutouts and more lyrics. That is a plus in my book. A dope arrary of beats showing versatility. Staying in pocket and maintaining subject value. “Phone Calls” is a definite single and should get some more push with a video.

What we disliked: Constant “Hater” bars. We get it people are hating its life move on to a new topic. Caught a couple bars that sounded close to swag jacking on “Part of The Game”.  Could’ve went for more Delay and Kellem features (biased opinion)

Love for the Music: Miss Money’s G-Season [@RobertTydes, @ItsMISSMONEY]

Miss_Money_G-season-front-large
This past week, I took the time to listen to Hip-Hop coming out of Pittsburgh, Pa. Miss Money, out of Pittsburgh’s Hill District, is an up-and-coming female artist, bringing a holistic perspective of the good, the bad, and everything in between, of living to get out the streets. The mixtape, Titled G-Season hosted by Dj Skroog Mkduk, is music for anyone about the grind, their hustle, hard work, fun, and uplifting the people.

It provides a glimpse of what it is to be a product of The Projects. G-Season speaks to the dreams any street kid may dream, and simultaneously depicts the journey that The Streets provide in order to make it out to a better life. Track selection gives you Miss Money’s take on her journey, coming up as a product of foster care and the criminal system. The mixtape also speaks to Miss Money’s understanding of the demand and toll the street life takes. The entirety of the mixtape give’s pain and joy, also, reflection and vision. Its all her! Miss Money’s passion and joy certainly shows! You can feel the energy and visualize the direction Money is taking with the collaboration of Street-inspired lyrics and a multitude of Rock, Pop, Electronic, and Hip-Hop sounds.

There are tracks to bump in the Ol’ School; the SS can cruise or thump, listening to sounds of tracks like Swahvy or Raised in the Projects. Your party can get popping with tracks like Smoke N Drank & Money, or, your thoughts & opinions can get a spark with sounds, and lyrics, with tracks like Labels, and Freestyle (in the booth). I have to give my respects for putting the interview on the disc. It opened me up to hearing more of what Miss Money is about and the motivation behind the music. The interview is definitely something I’d like to see more in mixtape and album releases. It’s one thing to spit or sing, to put your message out, but it carries significant weight, in my opinion, to articulate who you are and what you stand for in your everyday voice! With that, Big Kudos for providing a that insight to your listeners Miss Money.

All in all, I enjoyed my ride arounds over the week and Holiday Weekend, getting to know Miss Money through her music. G-Season is fuel for the ride Miss Money is on. Give it a listen. Download it at DatPitff’s website. Check Miss Money @itsMissMoney on Twitter: @SKROOGMKDUK for DJ Skroog Mkduk. That’s all folks! Thanks for reading! Elevation over Stagnation Always.
