Side Note: Deception Feat Teza Talks & Donte Peace http://clpnation.com/side-note-deception-feat-teza-talks-donte-peace/ http://clpnation.com/side-note-deception-feat-teza-talks-donte-peace/#respond Thu, 12 Jan 2017 05:13:44 +0000 http://clpnation.com/?p=33901 I felt this record was going to be dope. It was the cover art for sure. There was no way such a hard cover couldn’t contain a complete record. Granted, I was completely thrown by the way this record unfolded, but I’m honestly not mad about it. Deception Feat Teza Talks & Donte Peace is over five minutes of thoughtfully composed music. It’s a record worth listening to a few times over. It should feed the soul a little bit. Share and enjoy!

Vibes: Reid- Cali http://clpnation.com/vibes-reid-cali/ http://clpnation.com/vibes-reid-cali/#respond Thu, 12 Jan 2017 04:57:06 +0000 http://clpnation.com/?p=33898 Another one.

Sitrep: First record checked after a mini reunion is a banger. Cali by Reid was an awesome first encounter. I don’t even care about how they do it up in Cali, but this record is damn near perfect. Reid’s vocals glide across a predictable, but well-executed melody. The night is young ladies and gentlemen. Visit CLPNation.com daily. Do it. Share and enjoy! Detroit, Vegas stand up!

1 For 1: DB Tha Rasta – Angels & Demons http://clpnation.com/1-for-1-db-tha-rasta-angels-demons/ http://clpnation.com/1-for-1-db-tha-rasta-angels-demons/#respond Tue, 10 Jan 2017 04:45:16 +0000 http://clpnation.com/?p=33891 We take many L’s on a nightly basis here at The Nation. Going through submissions is always luck of the draw. The bad still out weights the good, but tonight, we struck gold on the first try. Angels & Demons is one of the hardest records I’ve heard in the last year. Seriously!

DB Tha Rasta delivers his bars with such conviction, this record literally gave me chills. It would have made it up sooner, but I’ve had it on repeat for about an hour now, because it be like that sometimes. So much respect is due on this record. Shout out to Dontell Antonio for the clean visuals. Shout out to Minnesota. Share and enjoy!

Would You Ride For Me Die For Me: $ean Wire – 50th Zone http://clpnation.com/would-you-ride-for-me-die-for-me-ean-wire-50th-zone/ http://clpnation.com/would-you-ride-for-me-die-for-me-ean-wire-50th-zone/#respond Sun, 08 Jan 2017 23:20:39 +0000 http://clpnation.com/?p=33886 Something about the chorus on $ean Wire’s 50th Zone spoke to me as soon as I overheard it. To my best interpretation, Wire pines for the perfect one to either return or appear. The instrumental boasts shades of Nothing Way The Same which isn’t a bad thing at all. Overall this record is solid, especially for a random first encounter courtesy of Soundcloud’s  algorithm.

Yes, this record is over a year old. We’re grown, so we do what we want. Blessed be the day. Share and enjoy! 50th Zone, was the intro track from Wire’s ZONE EP. A gree stream is available below.

Sh*t Just Got Real: Solo Island – See It I Cop It (Prod. By Tivon E.T, Eng By.

This submission came through literally a few moments ago. They’re getting better. Muahah! Solo Island, as a first offering gives us See It I Cop It. The title and motive for this record are pretty straight forward so it really needed to be a homerun to make it onto The Nation tonight.  It was.

Everything about the record is familiar, but done so much better than most of what I hear today. Major props on production to Tivon E.T and Eng By. YH. Don’t be searching for me….share and enjoy! A download of See It I Cop It is also available below.

Too Cold: Knightstalker ft. KC Da Rookee & Kinzmania – Kinfluences (prod. by Romeo) http://clpnation.com/too-cold-knightstalker-ft-kc-da-rookee-kinzmania-kinfluences-prod-by-romeo/ http://clpnation.com/too-cold-knightstalker-ft-kc-da-rookee-kinzmania-kinfluences-prod-by-romeo/#respond Fri, 06 Jan 2017 04:50:14 +0000 http://clpnation.com/?p=33866 Why does this record just make me feel great inside? It’s tough to really elaborate on, but I knew it started with an ice cold production by Romeo. I mean seriously could a colder sample have been chosen, that literally never gets boring.

After that, you really want to listen to Knightstalker. KC Da Rookee & Kinzmania deliver such a team performance on this record. Each emcee delivers a classic feel without the drone. I usually let these records slide by, because I’m always looking for the next new sound, but sweet baby J…real recognize real. Respect. Share and enjoy!

As things go, we always try to show love and respect to those dedicated to their craft and Mpulse really embodies that. His latest offering comes in week 18 of his “52 Weeks” music series. We borrowed that last bit. Jack Move 2 features Mpulse cruising through some of 2016’s more familiar records, all while displaying his technical prowess for rap. Respect. The rest of you all share and enjoy!

Manu Worldstar (Ft. Luna Florentino) – Yewen (Official Music Video) http://clpnation.com/manu-worldstar-ft-luna-florentino-yewen-official-music-video/ http://clpnation.com/manu-worldstar-ft-luna-florentino-yewen-official-music-video/#respond Fri, 06 Jan 2017 04:11:02 +0000 http://clpnation.com/?p=33858 Admittedly, I struggled with a catchy title for this record. Initially, listens and this record had me a bit perplexed. The visuals were loud, and the hook was louder. However, for some reason, Manu Worldstar and Luna Florentino absolutely lit up this Yewen record which I expect to start posting big numbers once people shake off the New Years’ rust.

Also admittedly, I’ve listened to this record a few times over now and still don’t really know anything about what the hook is about…and I’m not completely upset at that. Usually, such occurrences would almost immediately result in a rage against mumble rap and it’s predecessors, but for tonight, I can honestly put in all the creativity put into this record and visuals as a whole. I hate to say

Usually, such occurrences would almost immediately result in a rage against mumble rap and it’s predecessors, but for tonight, I can honestly put in all the creativity put into this record and visuals as a whole. Manu and Luna really hold their own while crusing through an awesome production and even more intense visuals. I hate to say it because I hate the expression…but this one is lit. Like fire.

Share and enjoy!

Can We Build? Five Drexler Unleashes The Kidd Fresh-Directed “Lego Love” (Video) http://clpnation.com/can-we-build-five-drexler-unleashes-the-kidd-fresh-directed-lego-love-video/ http://clpnation.com/can-we-build-five-drexler-unleashes-the-kidd-fresh-directed-lego-love-video/#respond Thu, 05 Jan 2017 21:36:37 +0000 http://clpnation.com/?p=33839

St. Pete emcee Five Drexler just wants to build some “Lego Love”, is that too much to ask? I don’t think it is… and with the way this Kidd Fresh-directed video flows it seems like he already found a few pieces. Five put his Trblmkrs stamp on the smooth production and laced the sound bed with equally fluid verses, making for a cool jam with a clean concept video to compliment. You’ll see Five and his love interest enjoying the night life and having an exciting night cap. By the way I seen the uncensored version, so I got one up on all yall! Hashtag tiddayz. Burn up and catch the vibe:
