Houston emcees Kay Jay & Paul Wall collab for an ode to living each day like it’s your last on the Jon Z-produced “Live For Today.” The track is Kay Jay’s first single from his upcoming sophomore project, “Seize The Moment”, expected early 2017. The project is light on features but an appearance from Devin The Dude and Scotty ATL are also expected.
“After many years of being down and out, it felt great to start getting money and making big moves in life. With the album being called “Seize The Moment”, I always say, ‘Live life like there’s no tomorrow” and thats exactly what I do!! From partying VIP in the club to riding around in fancy cars with women i never imagined I’d have the opportunity to be around. You never know when will be your last day so live each one to the fullest”
Chemistry cannot be ignored and when you have it going on, you simply have to run with it. After a particularly wavy live performance, something Houston’s FlygerWoods is renowned for, he and fellow aspiring emcees TAME, The Aspiring Me, Express and Dylan Cohl, who also produced the track, headed to the studio to recreate the ‘vibe’ and the result was “VibeHouse”, which appears on Flyger’s recently released project, “FlygerWoods.” Now given the visual treatment courtesy of the film stylings of Danny Ocean ‘the Scorcese of the Streets,’ the “Vibe House” video brings to life the synergy that drove these four to the studio for a laidback groove that is perfect for cool evenings on the porch. Spark ’em if ya got ’em folks and enjoy.
Hailing from Missouri City, Texas, the 26 year old artist born Anthony Williams originally began his career under the name Airborne before evolving into FlygerWoods. Rapping was a recognizable skill early on for Flyger, and he’s been fan of Hip-Hop his whole life, inspired by a variety of artists from MF DOOM to Devin The Dude to Outkast to Kid Cudi. FlygerWoods’ self-titled debut has been described as laid-back and lighthearted with a nostalgic party feel, while also lyrically ferocious and masterful.
Houston’s Kyle Hubbard is not what would immediately jump to mind when asked to conjure up an H-town rapper but he has been a staple of the independent scene for years with the media accolades to prove it. Hence the premier of his latest visual, “This Is Houston” ft. T2 The Ghetto Hippie and Lyric Michelle by none other than the Houston Chronicle. Though not a slab swangin’, lean sippin’ caracature of Screwston, Kyle proudly represents his city to the fullest. This video alone features Hubbard, Lyric Michelle and T2 the Ghetto Hippie alongside various familiar landmarks, including Frenchy’s, The Breakfast Klub, Warehouse Live and The Safehouse and all of the shirts worn by Kyle sport Houston bands or come from the local brands 1836 Clothing Company & Forgotten Arts Clothing.
“Lyric, T2, and I don’t fit into the mold that is so often associated with Houston hip-hop, despite the fact we have all three been active members in the city’s hip-hop scene for years.
Lyric’s hook is dripping with Houston hip-hop stereotypes, but that it is delivered by a female emcee known for her poetic lyrics gives the whole thing a tongue-in-cheek feel. The verses delivered by T2 and myself are more on the nose with the entire concept. The juxtaposition between the hook/production and the verses is all very deliberate.” Hubbard tells the Chronicle.
Enjoy this parallel below and see if you agree, THIS IS HOUSTON!
