You often hear artists say that music is a ‘lifestyle,’ but what happens once the spotlight fades — or if a musician never blew up in the first place? We were just put on to a 2015 doc called Adult Rappers made by Paul Iannacchino Jr., that chronicles the perspectives and lives of about 30 rappers from the U.S. and Canada who have achieved varying levels of success, and are now finding new and different ways to get by as “adults” with different sets of responsibilities. There are some familiar names and faces amongst the interviewees: J-Zone, Dilated Peoples’s Evidence, Bobbito Garcia, Despot, Don Will, Esoteric, Eternia, Slug, A Tribe Called Quest’s Jarobi, Masta Ace, and Murs.
The film starts out with a pretty gut-wrenching montage of artists sharing how they discuss their livelihoods in casual conversation: for many, it involves being entirely evasive about their past (or current) rap lives. Adult Rappers covers a lot of difficult terrain. “I think the biggest misconception about it, at least from people I know, is that they think how good they are is gonna determine how far they go. And how hard they work is going to determine how far they go,” says J-Zone, wryly. The entertainment industry tends to favor the young and new, so it might be easy to dismiss Adult Rappers as a documentary about people who have largely faded from the spotlight. But given that it’s easier than ever for struggling artists to get a taste of the fame, only to be pushed out due to shifting musical tastes or sociopolitical circumstance, Adult Rappers feels like a must-watch for music fans who want to understand what rap looks like when it’s a forever thing.

Iako naslov pjesme nalaže da se radi o Veseljaku, sigurno nije riječ o onakvom kakvog ste zamislili. MC Fanki je opet u kombi sa beatmaker-om Toksikom i zajedno čine Šamar. Svakako zvuk na kojeg još niste navikli, aranžmani su razradjeni i Fanki uvijek ima tendenciju obraditi temu na neočit način, što je njegov plus.

Croatia’s very own Gezin of 808 Mafia exclusively released one of the tracks he has produced for Yo Gotti‘s new mixtape. The mixtape itself is packed with bangers and dark, street Trap – no luvvy duvvy stuff – and as you can expect, Gezin’s production goes just as hard. Yo Gotti and Money Bagg Yo (who just got signed by Yo Gotti) go back and forth on this track and claim their success to their own work, No Features.
Zagreb je brija Zagabria, Guljže baca kantu boje na platno i ispadne Antarktika. Zimski nam donosi single koji zvuči drugačije od svega što je izbacio do sada, izuzev toga što cijelu traku samo baca barove. Produkcija je intrigirajuća, no ipak malo nedoradjena. U svakom slučaju nastavak ove suradnje bi mogao urodit plodom i donijet nešto sasvim novo u eter.
