Today would have been 'Pac's 43rd birthday. Tupac was a very influential figure within hip-hop. His penetrating music along with his lovable personality won the hearts of many throughout the 90's with songs like "Keep Your Head Up", "Changes","I Get Around", "Dear Mama" and "I Aint Mad At Cha". Today in 2014, Pac legacy continues to live on especially in the hip-hop community, the love the people have for Pac will never die. Happy Birthday my G.

Joycelynn23 - Virtues & Vices (2012)

Back in 2012, when I first decided to actually start recording my lyrics, I worked hard and spent my whole paycheck on studio equipment. Once I set up my studio, I was so eager to put out a project/mixtape, I thought I knew the game, i didn't know shit, haha. I downloaded beats off of Youtube and just put lyrics to beats with no concise methods or strategies once so ever, the features were rushed and the quality is so bad. But I've learned soooo much since 2012. This was before I switched my stage name from Joycelynn23 to JXXIII (J23) "Virtues & Vices" has a great concept to it, but I'm not proud of how I rushed it...I mixed and mastered (HORRID) everything myself and also did the artwork on Paint (which wasn't bad, I would say).But as an artist we have to craft projects and put our all into it. Virtues & Vices took two weeks to record, it wasn't well crafted, but I kept it on BandCamp to show how an artist can grow and develop (and because I think it's so cute how bad this project is lol, it still shits on some artist tho, just saying) Take a listen and have a laugh, indieVISUAL : July 8, 2014. (PS: My only gem form this tape is the outro, still solid)

Knox Brown - Harry's Code



Knox Brown is a name you're going to want to get to know now, and a name that you will be hearing a lot more of in the future. One listen to the Jamaican-born, British-raised singer, songwriter, and producer's debut solo single "Harry's Code," and you can tell that this is an artist bursting with creative energy. The song is clearly influenced by the dub reggae of Knox Brown's Jamaican heritage, mixing that with soulful vocals and a grand gospel feel to yield wonderful results.

It's one of the most exciting debut songs I've heard in a while, and you can check out our premiere of the song, which just got its first radio play on Zane Lowe's show, below.

Quite apart from making brilliant solo tracks like "Harry's Code," Knox Brown has been writing and producing for Jay Z, Mary J Blige, and Aloe Blacc, alongside various other exciting projects that you'll be hearing more about soon. One to look out for, no doubt. (via Pigeons & Planes)
