R Jay – Time Will Tell Vol. 2 (Free Download)

Time Will Tell Vol.2 is RJay’s 2nd R&B mixtape, with his first (Time Will Tell) being released just over 2 years ago. This tape consists of 11 tracks + 3 skits, and only has one feature (Colz). 
This release from RJay is a very mature one, and showcases his talents as a vocalist and songwriter. He has consistently been improving — although the majority of his improvements have happened behind the scenes as he hasn’t actually released many singles — the progress from the previous project to this one is unbelievable. TWTV.2 almost sounds like an album, I would have definitely paid for this. “Wanderlust.” and “Ride” are probably my favourites on this project.

Shocka Freestyle (YDK Exclusive)

Shocka has a way with words that I’ve never heard from any other artist. He is SO underrated, but I seriously hope his forthcoming mixtape, “F.I.S.T” gets the credit it deserves. Shocks is on the same wavelength as me, as is “F.I.S.T” which is why I’m SO excited about it. I love seeing an artist that has a message to send, so this freestyle is a little exclusive of what’s in store!

RJay – What I Miss

I cannot give RJay enough credit and praise for his progress. He has found himself as an artist, he’s found his sound and has developed his vocals hugely, I’m sure he’ll be able to tackle a few ballads with ease by now, and he’s even giving rapping a go, as we heard in his “Feeling Myself” freestyle with the lovely Colz. In addition to this his writing abilities have come on over the past year or so. His grind has paid off.

What I Miss” is taken from RJay’s forthcoming mixtape called “Selfish. Love. Mistakes“, and is set for release on June 14th, only a couple of weeks away, and I cannot wait for it, I’m certain it will be his best work yet, by far! We’ve been seeing more and more songs being released that don’t tend to have a set structure, and are without a chorus/verse/bridge etc, it’s been more common with rappers like JME and his “96 F#ckries”.

Risky Javan – Vibe Like This (Adonai Remix)

This video/track captures perfectly everything I love about Risky. His high energy and extremely happy persona are portrayed so perfectly. Risky is always good fun to be around and watching this video definitely makes you want to jump into the computer screen and “vibe” with him. Make sure you catch him live if you can, he’s so good on the stage and makes sure everyone has a good time, no matter what age, race, or gender you are! Vibe Like This is taken from his forthcoming E-Tape “New Wave”.

This video also features the beautiful and extremely talented Luv❤Rell, who has a project coming out on May 10th, Alpha Tauri. Make sure you look out for it!

Moteleola – Oasis Black

Moteleola is one of the loveliest guys I know and is very talented. Oasis Black showcases his talent as a producer but also features the likes of Olivia Louise and rap trio: SWB (one of whom is also his younger brother). He describes his latest project:

“This project is my album of thoughts, expressed through the words of others, my emotions conveyed through string sections, samples & synths, my influences communicated through thick kick drums & sharp snares. Each song is a reflection of different relationships, from how the want for success can lay it’s burden upon lovers, friends & deep companions, from the connection a mother holds with her unborn, to the extreme dramatisation of a loveless one sided relation. Dreams and aspirations are amazing, Conviction is even more incredible.”

  • [Thought of the Week]

    "Maybe cheating in a relationship isn't the worst thing you could do, maybe it's just human nature?"

    Remember when you were a child, and your parents would tell you you're not allowed to eat sweets, or make a mess in your bedroom, and you'd do the complete opposite and crave it even more just because you're not allowed? Or if you're on a diet, you know you're not allowed cake or carbs, but simply because you know you're not allowed it, you want it even more? Well surely the same applies in relationships?
    Firstly, I want to start by saying we're not perfect, but perfection is something we should strive towards. Honesty is the best policy.
    A friend of mine is genuinely one of the loveliest people I know, with the best heart and the best intentions and I don't want to show him in a negative light whatsoever, simply provide you with an alternative idea. I've known him for a few years, however we only started speaking properly about a year ago. We both found each other attractive, blah blah blah, so we decided to book a hotel room. He ignored me for a few days, so obviously something was wrong, then he told me there's another girl he loves (obviously I didn't know this before), as they weren't together. I didn't think much of it, actually I was extremely envious of this girl, and that she has someone in her life that is so dedicated and faithful. A few months later, conversation escalated, and we once again decided to go hotel, and a few days beforehand he once again cancelled. This time I was pretty angry and upset, because he'd lead me on and then cancelled. Obviously we're not together but I'm my own person too at the end of the day and don't want to be lead on.
    Another few months later we started talking, innocent conversation about gym, films etc (this time via dm on twitter as I deleted his number and vice versa, I assume), and I had calmed down over the previous incident, he was a genuinely lovely person and I admire the faithfulness to his yet to be girlfriend, I hope I find someone like that in the future. But anyway, we decided to have a gym session together, as we live near each other we went to the park, and for the majority of it, it was a really good session, fun, productive (my legs KILLED the following day) but there was sexual tension, especially towards the end. My back was super sore from gym the previous day and he offered a massage, it was rubbish and he didn't get very far unfortunately as he was starting to give in, and couldn't resist the attraction any longer. Not a lot happened as I stopped him, before it escalated too far. I'd hate for my future husband to cheat on me, so I could only give this couple the same respect (they were together a few months at this point). The following day he thanked me, and was grateful for stopping him.
    The point of this example is, I know my friend loves his girlfriend very much but none of us are perfect and we all give in to temptation now and again. Many males/females cheat because they have a craving, and a hoe gets in the way that has no respect for the relationship and only wants his/ her needs fulfilled, few will have a conscience and stop anything

    Alternatively, on a separate occasion I was speaking to another friend about this topic. He told me that he's seen a sidechick/man save many relationships. His reasons were that if you have an argument with your partner, instead of ending the relationship, you go to see a sidechick/man, relax, then go back to your partner happy and proceed as normal. I disagree with his reasoning however I see the point behind it.
    As long as you don't make a habit out of temptation, and are honest... maybe we're too extreme when it comes to cheating? I disagree with cheating, and don't condone it, however this is just a thought. Everyone get's bored of everything eventually if you get too high a dose, it's just a matter of balance.
