Hip Hop. Both the culture and Music were born in the streets of New York and lot of my favorite Hip Hop artists are from that state. No question, New York is a special place.
Growing up in Detroit, Michigan, I also listened to a lot of local artists which I felt were as good (or better) than some of the “up and coming” New York cats. To this day Michigan continues to feed the World with great Hip Hop and Music in general. Another special place that has provided great Music over the years is the state of Pennsylvania. Funk, Hip Hop, Jazz, Soul..the list goes on and on and on…
So what do you get when combine a dope Michigan lyricist with a creative producer from Pennsylvania? Well, you get some pretty damn good Music.
Blacktivity is the newly formed duo which consists of rapper Illtone (Port Huron, MI) and beat maker / producer Shade Cobain (Pittsburgh, PA). Their self-titled release is a winner. Illtone’s raspy voice fits perfectly with Shade’s hard-hitting beats. Hip Hop fans, TURN THIS JOINT UP LOUD! You will love it.
