“No Justice, no Peace!” demands PINK i’s “BARS” feat. Android Eddie & 66notes – (OAX alt.mix – official video w lyrics)

PINK I & BenOaks’ “BARS (I Can’t Breathe)” is a Black Lives Matter anthem! Blast it loud! There will be no peace until there is justice for Black American murders by the Police! This official video with lyrics was shot & directed by Chloe Rivera, age 14. Daughter of Android Eddie (& niece of BenOaks).

This music video proudly shows that Black Lives Matter in small town USA!

Gentle Jones x BenOaks

Delaware’s own versatile artist (and OG skateboarder) Gentle Jones and Philly’s notorious producer Benjamin Oaks have collaborated on a handful of interesting hiphop tracks the past few years. These gems feature the extreme mental dexterity of Gentle Jones and the lyrical flow of a microphone veteran. Ranging from classic 90’s style soul/funk flavored boombap to experimental electro jams and dubstep/grime bass heavy bangers, Benjamin Oaks showcases the broad range of his musical palette.

Here is a trippy video for the triphop/electro jam by Gentle Jones and our co-founder Benjamin Oaks (of the Numinous).

 

And here is another banger from Gentle Jones’ latest album Blood King.

 

from Remys Music and Film review of ‘Blood King’. the latest album from Gentle Jones

“Blood King ends with strands of Gentle Jones’ origins, a brief snap of ska sets closing track ‘So High I Think I Might Die’ on its way. Lyrically it reads like a reflection of a heightened awareness of mortality, the invincibility and enjoyable trappings of youth versus facing the future, a cosmically set look at what awaits us all on our own day of reckoning. I could be wrong, but one of the enjoyable aspects of Gentle Jones’ music is it’s thematic value, and confusion, it could all mean absolutely nothing, or it could be masking his fears and frustrations with humour, I’ve a feeling it’s the latter, but that can be set aside and the music can just be enjoyed, which I think was the ultimate goal of Blood King.”

“Gentle Jones sits comfortably atop the Mason-Dixon line in his home state of Delaware, performing frequently as a Hip-Hop MC and DJ. He’s also done stints as the Frontman for The Bullbuckers (Ska band) and The Barons (Punk band), winning local awards and international acclaim.

Known for his breathtaking vocal range, Gentle Jones moves easily from singing, to screaming, to intricate rhyming cadences.

Honing his craft on stages from California to Ireland, Gentle Jones has delighted concertgoers beside music legends The Wailers, Murs, Condemned 84, Murphy’s Law, The Pietasters, Cappadonna, Trombone Shorty, Brother Ali, The Slackers, and Bad Luck 13. A phenomenal songwriter with working class roots and space age chops.”

The track “Skateboard Rap” is an ode to the legends of pro skateboard lore.

 

And you can’t forget the East Coast’s love of good “Sandwiches”. Shout outs to Capriott’s Bobby and Wawa.

Pedro Fresco on Facebook

  • If there’s one word that describes Pedro’s music, it’s smooth. This is probably not by chance, however. You see, “Pedro Fresco” hails from Landenberg, PA. His distinct style is thus a reflection of his environment: the relentless bars represent the urban and the melodic cadence represents the rural aspects of Landenberg. Although he’s dabbled in rap for quite some time now, too, it’s only until recently that he’s fully committed himself to his craft. Pedro is currently working on this debut project entitled, “No Concept.”
