Brainiac Beats feat. El Gant, Vvs Verbal & Bekay – Blessed [Video]

As an artist, the come-up is just as hard as it is gratifying, and it’s the latter quality that makes every win that much more successful. That message is at the core of Spanish producer, Brainiac Beats’ smooth single, “Blessed”, and its newly released visuals. Directed by 2050films, the video embraces the idea of remembering where you came from, through the black-and-white footage of a young artist’s creative process. His narrative is interspersed between shots of heavyweight vocal guests—NYC rappers El Gant, Vvs Verbal, and Bekay on the bars, and Dallas singer Glen ‘Grey’ Reynolds on the hook—posted up on a Brooklyn basketball court. The lyrics represent the rise and drive of the protagonist; characteristics that are mirrored through the individual success of all of the featured artists. What does the future hold for the young and determined creative? Maybe Brainiac Beats will let us know when he drops his next single. “Blessed” is now available for free download on SoundCloud via Gris Materia Records, here.

El Gant – Spray Music [EP]

An uzi’s firing rate is precisely six hundred rounds per minute. Neither one of us are counting bars, but El Gant’s presentation here over 42 Keez’s canvas could very well be the closest representation of a lyrical uzi in 2015. Spray Music, cosigns itself that Gant’s emceeing abilities have been doing pushups since the acclaimed 2014 release of Beast Academy. With 42 Keez’s Chicago-driven soundscape and a universally accepted and respectable rhyme display. In opposition, don’t get the potential screwed up. Gant is always building with and in the lab with veteran emcees and true schoolers, alongside successful solo strives and his IV League posse (Ras Kass, Shabaam Sahdeeq, El Da Sensei and more). Trust is a must – enjoy. Spray Music by El Gant
