Turn up The Lu Jitzu!

Music is all about vibes right now, and Philly native Lu Jitzu is bringing them all. First let’s talk about where his stage name is derived from, this gives us a peek into his personality. Lu Jitzu is a play on the name Lou Jitsou, who ultimately became master splinter. Knowing small tidbits like this help us connect to artists even more. His sound is a mixture of alternative Hip-Hop with a touch of Techno.

Reminiscent of Lil Uzi Vert, Lu Jitzu’s music makes you want to “hit em with the shoulders.” Vibe/Swag rap has become an increasingly popular style. Sometimes listeners don’t want to think they just want to feel.
Not only is he a beast when it comes to flows, he switches things up and brings the harmonies and melodies.

Could you guys imagine a mixture between Brent Faiyaz and Lil Uzi Vert? I never did either until I listened to Lu Jitzu. I love when artists stand out for all the right reasons.

Check out some of his music below and seriously let me know what you think. I’m excited to see him progress as an artist.

Fear the Black Swan, Angeles Delivers a Message

The Black Swan Phenomena:

is an unpredictable or unforeseen event that is beyond what is normally expected of a situation and has potentially severe consequences. Black swan events are characterized by their extreme rarity, severe impact, and the widespread insistence they were obvious in hindsight.

The reworked version of The Pharcyde’s Runnin’ beat is perfection. Angeles paints vivid imagery with his words. Too many bars to quote, I’d be writing the entire song in this article. He begins by declaring change is coming and makes you a believer by the end of the song. Black Swan is a double entrendre filled allegory. Angeles is simultaneously nostalgic and futuristic. He covers all of Hip-Hop’s bases. Paying homage to music that came before you, being inventive, and being yourself. In a world full of cookie cutter artists, Angeles is a promising breath of fresh air.

Check out Black Swan above and let me know if you’re feeling what I’m feeling below in the comments.

Flo Milli’s Millennial Knock to Misogyny

2020 breakout artist Flo Milli is putting on for ‘Bama, and not letting up! Quit witted bars run rampant in her arsenal. The 21-year old artist rips this Kenny Beats production.

“You can’t hate on pxssy if it rule the planet, I just came in the game and I’m doing damage.”

A bold declaration, that is 100% true. Flo Milli discusses double standards and patriarchy on “Roaring 20s“. This track is reminiscent of Beyoncé’sIf I Was a Boy” and Ciara’sLike a Boy,” not sonically, but in the message. All are women’s anthems to put the illogical actions of men on blast. Using typical male jargon to taunt our counterparts, Flo Milli is sure to hit a few nerves with this wrecking ball of a record.
