Aloha & welcome back OTDHipHop fam! This week’s #TrackTuesday article features “Beastmode,” by LGFROMTHABAY. LG is a growing force in the Bay Area’s music scene, and is working tirelessly to take his brand and company to the next level.
Check out my review for “Beastmode” (track & video) below!!
First off, the concept behind this track is clever, relevant, and still genuine. When asked about inspiration for this Beastmode, LG stated - “I’m a fan of Marshawn Lynch a.k.a BEASTMODE! I love my city and all the Bay Teams!” The beat has a classic hyphy sound with bold vocals, and overall a clean project! I feel Keak Da Sneak vibes heavy on this track! Lol. The video features dope drone shots of the Bay Area, with LG reppin’ Nor Cal street art, sports teams, and brands heavy.

2018 just keeps on rollin’ yall.. So welcome back to OTDHipHop universe!
Before I introduce yall to this week’s #TrackTuesday, please SHARE this with your social media networks and let’s blow this up! Be sure to follow us onTwitter, Instagram, & Soundcloud. Alright, let’s get to the song review; today I’m vibing to a new track “Kenan & Kel” (Fuck Mondo), recently released by the Wavy Souls crew via Soundcloud.
Yo this track is definitely a banger Already at over 100k plays on Soundcloud, it’s pretty much low key viral. Overall, I dig the vibe of the track. The cover art is dope, a photo of Kenan & Kel and conveyed a goofy and youthful vibe. It also features Aloha Hype’s heavy hitter, Welo! I was wildin. Haha!
I’m a little bias with my opinion of this song because I’ve witnessed Wavy Souls perform this live and it was off the chain! But I will say that hearing the studio version is maaad lit! Production is on point so big ups to that. I think each artist went ham on their verses and came together well at backing each other’s vocals and annunciating different punchlines. It made me feel like I was at a college party, all while sitting on my couch watching Dave Chappelle. Lol. Anyways, I’m a fan of Kenan & Kell (Fuck Mondo) and the Wavy Souls. Someone please make a “Please don’t tell” and “Bitch I’m the source of a sauce” a meme and put it on a t-shirt! Lol. Big ups to Lee-o who was vital in producing this track! He also wrote the hook.
Hope all is well with everyone in the OTDHipHop universe. We’re back with a brand new song review on this #TrackTuesday, featuring “She Feel Like” by Jvson Jones (ft. Bruce).
First off, Jvson Jones has been dropping WAVY tracks for a minute! You can scroll through the blog posts on here and you’ll find some older reviews of his songs. Honestly, he’s one of the most underrated artists/producers I know...and a solid dude! Anyways, “She Feel Like” is his latest song. It’s definitely a vibe for the ladies but something the fellahs can vibe to too. Production has a trap tempo & psychedelic sounds, either way it’s on point! As far as artistry, Jvson is really finding his voice and it shows heavily on this track; moving smoothly between “vibey” raps and trap/R&B-styled vocals on the hook. Even through the auto-tune, his voice is very unique and flows well with the feature by Bruce, which is equally 100%!
Jvson’s poetic finesse on “She Feel Like” is what I especially like. The hook is light & mad catchy, mixed with the trap and 420 aura. He seems to be telling a story about a love interest, of which the story is relatable and poetic.. My favorite lyrics are “Climb into her mind like a ladder on her eye. She just wanna slide, can’t hide behind a disguise…” Overall the song makes me feel hella good and positive; the type of track that can be played with headphones on a walk or at a kickback with friends.
