[Single] Parable vs. Mac Soto – Soul

Parable vs. Mac Soto first introduced their musical collaboration with the sample-heavy, “Play,” and dig even deeper with their follow-up, “Soul.” Produced and composed entirely by Mac Soto, “Soul,” is an emotionally-driven piece with multiple musical movements. Mac Soto opens up with graceful and sincere vocals backed by soft piano notes, which quickly explodes with an aggressive breakbeat topped with Parable’s cutthroat yet honest raps. The song touches the unique, heartfelt topic... Read More →

[Podcast]: Jose Mertz presents CRAK

From time to time, our fam around the 305 jump in on some of our podcast because like you, they know that music connects all of us. One of those peeps happens to be Jose Mertz, the Creative Native himself. I am going to go ahead and describe Mertz as one of the most-talented men I know. A brilliant artist, his work is what art should be; thought-provoking, provocative and visually stunning. This son of the 305 is also a rhyme-slayer. His freestyle prowess is sick. He produces music and I have been... Read More →

This week we bring you the lowdown what they’ve got in store for... Read More →

[Podcast]: Guilletine presents Bone Thugs-n-Harmony

One of the most legendary albums ever are thanks to these crazy lyricist/barber shop quartet (Lol). Bone Thugs-n-Harmony had songs that even our parents used to sing and even respect due to the fact that they are beyond talented. Super catchy tunes filled with impeccable melodies and harmonies yet STILL used to make us drive around with our bandanas and dark shades on. One of the main reasons most of us smoke as much as we do and we don’t even realize it. Working with the top of the top heads... Read More →

SomeJerk Talks Moombahton

My colleagues here at Antisteez brought to my attention that we haven’t covered Moombahton in a minute, so I blasted off to see what’s been going on in the Moombahverse and this is what I found: SomeJerk has decided to officially dabble in it … and it’s sick. I would’ve gotten here sooner to tell you about it, but I’ve been shaking my ass to his recent Moombahton track since 9 a.m. It’s what girls get their dance on with, and what guys like watching them... Read More →
