Ok So Ludovin is one of the artist that’s a required taste. He kinda reminds me of Owl City as far a rhythm and theme of some of his songs. He is a Swedish producer and composer well known for his work on US TV sitcoms theme songs Happy Endings, Community, and New Girl, as well as collaborating with Donald Glover (Childish Gambino) album Camp. I’m guessing they know each other because they both write for tv shows. Anyway Ludovin music might sound a little silly at times making songs about a squirrel and why he is so happy, but doesn’t mean he isn’t musically talented. I am a fan of his produced beats and believe if he finds his style and make it a little “cooler” he might have a future in the music industry. Comment below would love to hear what you think. Here you can download Ludovin Alubm EP.
Rush Da Russian Rapper is a sick new rap artist that just burst onto the scene with “Love me til you hate me”. In the song he raps about real things and calls out other rappers for their lyrics about money and sex. When I first read the phrase “Russian Rapper” I will admit I was not expecting the song I listened to sound as good as it was, not because he is Russian because it seemed like it was going to be just another gimmick used to compensate for the lack of lyricism, flow and song quality. That is why I never judge a book by its cover even though I was very weary of the fact they compared him to Eminem like do to every white rapper to try to sell more singles/records. After listening to the song I realized that there was no gimmick just an up and coming rapper with flow, lyricism and actual value in his song. It is not fair to compare him to Eminem but Rush is definitely a sick new rap artist to look out for. Enjoy the song!
Welcome to Slept On Sundays, where we highlight sick music artists that have been slept on by the mainstream. Our first sick music artist is Lupe Fiasco, who is without a doubt one of the most slept on music artists that is in music today. There is really no better song to start this off with then “Dumb it Down” where Lupe brings attention that his music is being slept on because he refuses to dumb down his music like most of the artists in the mainstream are doing to sell records. This song has a comical undertones but a serious message encouraging us to not put up with the dumbed down music of the mainstream. It sends a message that intelligence should be appreciate and applauded and we should not let anyone force us to dumb it down. Enjoy!
