Aloha OTDHipHop!! Much love to all the featured artists and fans, y'all keeping this platform going!
With that said, this week’s #TrackTuesday is “No V-Day” by Philly-based artist RAMADXN.
Check out our song review below:
“No V-Day” is one of RAMADXN’s latest drops. First off, I dig the the beat itself has a slower trap pace with a boosted base. Shouts out Canis Major on production! As far as lyrical content, I dig RAMADXN’s style. Essentially, “No V-Day” is a love song. I pictured it as a page out of the artist’s diary or journal, basically he’s venting his frustrations about a girl. He also has a nonchalant attitude in his voice that makes his story easy and fun to listen to even though the tone is a little dark.
Wassup fam! We’ve actually been posting as scheduled for 4 weeks straight now! Lol.

Alright enough with that, this week’s #TrackTuesday features
“A Complex Beginning,” by KTC (King Tha Caper). Check out my review below:
“A Complex Beginning” is the newest song/music video by KTC, off his Complexity album.
The visuals are pretty dope on this project. Props to Corey Huber Media! I like the concept of using smoke/fog to illustrate the struggle to “make it.” It looked like it was cold outside! Lol.
Overall, I dig the storytelling KTC does on this track. In my opinion, I hear this song more like a poem out of his book of rhymes, explaining his frustration to be successful but overall focused on working hard to achieve his goals. There really isn’t any hook but more so a poetic theme of his complex mind, and is used in the track and album title. I also dig the cadenced-type beat; it reminded me of Eminem’s “Beautiful.”
Shouts out Nookie on production!
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.
