AllHiphop News – The Odd Side: Soul For Your System

0

,

Welcome back to the Odd Side, a new column on AllHipHop getting you hip to innovative alternative artists. This week is dedicated to the singers; those that brings out the soul in their music, whether it’s through psychedelic sounds, dope beats, or featuring a rapper.

Kandace Springs

The first artist is Kandace Springs. She made an early performance at this year’s AfroPunk Fest, and at the very least she made a standout performance of her live performance of “Meet Me In The Sky” with nothing but her soothing voice and her serious piano skills. Recently, Springs has been opening for acts like Chance The Rapper and Ne-Yo, and has also performed on The Late Show With David Letterman. Springs released her self-titled EP, and it sounds amazing. Hopefully, we can find out more about this dope artist, and when’s she’s coming out with an album. But for now, check her out in our Three Questions series.

Jordan Bratton

Ever since the first time we’ve heard Midnight Rage, Jordan Bratton has been stirring up a lot of interest for his music. The young, New York native released his debut project The Grey Area earlier this year, and has even released “Must Be” to show his growth as both an artist and a human being. Bratton’s voice might seem a bit to young at first glance, but his unique lyrics and smooth production makes the delivery a step up from the competition. A few days ago, Jordan Bratton released the remix of his song “Danger” featuring Fabolous. Jordan Bratton is definitely an artist worth looking out for.

Minus The Sky

When you first hear this Baltimore band, you feel as if you have traveled to a new perspective of psychedelic rock. But when you hear lead singer Gidae Cambell soul’d out verses on the song, it will change everything you think about this young band. Minus the Sky released their debut EP Elysian Fields in the spring, but this album still seems to end up in rotation even now. The solid combination of rock, funk, and soul creates something completely out of the ordinary. It sounds awesome, and it only makes you want to listen to more than this six-track EP. Keep an eye on this group, because it seems like their local appeal will change after a few future projects.

AllHiphop News – Hip-Hop Rumors: Why’d They Stop Jhene Aiko’s Performance?

0

,

The Def Jam 30 concert was all the rage on Twitter yesterday. Be there or Be square! Needless to say….I wasn’t there. But I heard that the pretty, young thing Jhene Aiko’s was supposed to be there and never happened! Now, one might think it was because of some drama related to her being a diva, but nothing could be father from the facts. She allegedly stopped herself from performing, because a female member of her crew was physically assaulted at the venue!

She explained on Insta:

Jhene responded: Unfortunately me and my camp were told to “get the f*** out” by “workers” while I was waiting to go on stage, ….after this “worker” (male) physically assaulted a member of my management (female) ….we had to leave due to the disrespect and hostile environment. If there’s one thing I can’t rock with, it’s disrespect…. if me and my band members were any of the rappers that were performing there, we would have never been talked to or treated in such a way. I’m sorry that I was unable to perform for you tonight…. hope to see you soon!”
