NEW CHILL MOODY!!!! NEW TRACK CALLED “HIGHER” ON THIS MIXTAPE. CHECK IT OUT
As a result of the Best Of Both Offices mixtape series, independent artists that have been on the come up in the worlds of both Hip Hop and R&B have had an outlet to showcase their talent for the last two years. “I started the series to get great music out there that I didn’t think was getting any love or really being heard,” says Immanuel Smith, the project’s curator, who sees the BOBO compilation as a platform that’s helping artists reach places that they haven’t been able to reach before. Some of the names who have appeared on previous volumes are Ty Dolla $ign, Troy Ave, Harry Fraud, Vinny Chase, Bizzy Crook and Euro League. Since Smith is steadily keeping his ears to the streets and his eyes open for what’s buzzing on the Internet, he’s consistently coming across new talent, and now he’s ready to introduce the world to a few new names with Best Of Both Offices Vol. 4. Here is the Life + Times premiere of the fourth installment of the Best Of Both Offices series. Via Life+Times
My song “We’re Worth More” mentioned in an article written today in the Baltimore Sun called: Don’t #BlackLivesMatter, celebrities?
The article starts with a question a lot of people have been asking when it comes to the recent situations such as #EricGarner and #MikeBrown, “Where are the Celebrities?”. Mentions things that #JohnLegend , #JCole, #ChillMoody have done, but goes on to say the “super-famous” haven’t really stepped up to the plate. Also goes into @Questlove’s recent reactions on the situation as well (check his IG).
I wrote this song August 10th, the Monday after the Michael Brown murder. I let a friend of mine hear it and their response was “yo this is dope! You need to drop it now while Ferguson is poppin”. I appreciated the compliment but was instantly taken back by the “while Ferguson is poppin” comment. Topical music shouldn’t be made in hopes to capitalize on a moment. Especially in cases like the ones addressed in this record, these problems are reoccurring and deserve our attention for a longer duration than the “while it’s poppin” grace period. Fast forward to today, the day after the decision was made to deny Mike Brown’s family the chance to receive justice, and I get a different message from a friend: “Chill, people need this record right now”. The change in commentary gave me a better understanding. Music helps healing. There is value in our lives, we have to take more claim to that. #WereWorthMore
Lyrical exercise. One of my favorite freestyle series. Great compilation of music to either introduce someone to my music or just ride out to if you are already a fan. Add this to your library. (Added a couple bonus jawns too incase you didn’t download them before, now everything is together.)
“Philly’s Chill Moody and the Bay Area’s Locksmith have been making moves both in their respective cities and across the world (the internet is dope right?), and today the two spitters unite on “Hold It Down.” An organ-driven gem produced by TDE beatsmith Willie B.” via 2DopeBoyz.com
