MUSIC. Rapper Kaoz Drops Music Video For The Hustlers Anthem ‘Overtime’.

KaozRapper Kaoz unveiled a surprise release of a video to accompany his track ‘Overtime.’ Surprising because the album the track is pulled from ‘The End Is Beginning,’ was released in June of 2015. Still, as for ‘Overtime,’ it’s a cool song and video, once both the song and video get going. Enjoy!

More about the artist…

“Kaoz has shared stages with major record label acts such as hip hop duo Dead Prez, MIMS, Syleena Johnson (TVOne’s R&B Divas) and Brandy and has ripped mics throughout the U.S. and Canada. The Tyler Durden EP (Experience) & The Tyler Durden Mixtape (2010) marked his return to Hip hop music. Kaoz also executive produced and co-wrote a full length compilation entitled Kaoz Presents: Real Talk MPLS

Kaoz has also been recognized for his activism and work in GLBT communities of color. He received the Harold PhilPot Youth Leadership Award from National AIDS Education & Services for Minorities for his groundbreaking work with Young Men who have sex with men of color in both Cleveland and Twin Cities metropolitan areas. Recently, Kaoz was profiled  in the Lavender Magazine’s “Lavender 100″ list of key people to know, and as runner up to Prince as Best Artist of the Twin Cities.”

The End Is Beginning’ by Kaoz is available on iTunes.

MUSIC. “The BEST Hip Hop Song By An LGBT Artist This Year!”

I stumbled upon the track ‘#blackblood’ by B. Slade featuring Omega Mythologist on one of my favorite sites Cypher Avenue. Contributor Ockydub praised the track as…

“The BEST Hip Hop Song By an LGBT Artist This Year!” and “THIS TRACK GOES HARD!”
Also “If Black Lives Matter was established by Lesbian women and Gay Black men, this song needs to be shared and promoted in their circles being that an openly gay ex-super star gospel singer wrote, produced and provided vocals for #BLACKBLOOD. LGBT hip hop heads need to acknowledge this is the pinnacle of LGBT hip hop for 2016. This is perfection. This is the bar that needs to be reached”.

So after all that I had to have a listen and I’ll say I was NOT disappointed. Take a listen and Enjoy!

I also will also recommend reading Ockydub original Cypher Avenue post as he excited and thoughts of the song, subject, LGBT issues, LGBT hip hop are stellar.
