Lucie Silvas Releases “We Don’t Know We’re Living” Featuring Brandi Carlile And Joy Oladokun
On Friday, September 10, Lucie Silvas released the single, “We Don’t Know We’re Living” featuring Brandi Carlile and Joy Oladkun. Co- written with K.S. Rhoads and Caroline Spence, Silvas reveals she wrote the song in a moment of self-awareness, “I needed a wake up call. It’s easy to think we are entitled to the air we breathe instead of feeling lucky to be alive and showing gratitude for the time we have on earth.” Silvas was performing the song live in the fall of 2019 when it caught the attention of Carlile who admitted, “I opened up for Lucie a couple years ago, and I was standing on the side of the stage when she did her headlining set, and she sang this song and I have never been the same since.” The song is featured on Spotify’s New Music Friday, Roots Rising, and is the cover of the Fresh folk playlist.

Cymarshall Law releases the video for “Electric B-Boy” along with his new album “I Still Love H.E.R.”
The album is a dedication to staying true to what we love. When Hip Hop first began, it was an unwritten rule: to get on you had to be raw and original. Over time Hip Hop has become commercialized to the point where the masses find it hard to find genuine music that feels authentic. Cymarshall Law, is the definition of how Hip Hop was created to sound, an emcee who sounds like only himself, passionate, and skillful with a message in his songs to match.

Young Dolph Has More Jewelry Than Your Jeweler in “Talking To My Scale”
Young Dolph might live a life of luxury, but he’ll never forget where he comes from. Delivering a diary of a trap lord turned CEO, Dolph shares the video for “Talking To My Scale.” Produced by Memphis mainstay DJ Squeeky, who captivates with a low-note piano riff, whirring synths, and insistent 808s, “Talking To My Scale” is a quintessential Tennessee trap anthem, packed with the witty turns of phrase and bits of hustler wisdom for which Dolph is known: “If I sacrificed myself, will I go to hell?/In my trap house countin’ guala, talkin’ to my scale/My jewelry box havin’ more water than Wisconsin Dells/Trap n****, I count money better than I spell.”
Watch DJ Gutta Butta, Slimmy B, Lil Bean, and MBNel Hustle Hard in “Bag Time”
Hailing from Vallejo, California DJ Gutta Butta and the former SOB x RBE emcee Slimmy B are quintessential Bay Area figures, focused on securing the bag above all else. Connecting with two more NorCal all-stars, Gutta Butta and Slimmy share “Bag Time,” their new video. A piano-led anthem about enjoying life’s finer things, “Bag Time” gets its power from the contrast between the melodic stylings of San Francisco’s Lil Bean, the smoothly lilting flow of Stockton’s MBNel, and the neck-snapping attack of Slimmy B. In the video, directed by Skiimob and hosted on the ABOVE ALL YouTube channel, the four artists don their favorite basketball jerseys (a lot of Kobe love) as they mob out in a secluded Berkley warehouse. “Bag Time” is a highlight track from All Net, the new collaborative EP by DJ Gutta Butta and Slimmy B, and the second video following “Sh*t Talking” ft. Icewear Vezzo.
