FROM THE PLANET OF THE GREATS

I have been listening to this artists music for a little while now. She is from DC!!!!!! You got to love that and she is definitely from the planet of the GREATS! Her sound is of none I have heard before. Her sound is almost like she was around in the 80’s….like it sounds like a record is playing rather than a cd and I like that. I guess you can say I can be pretty old school sometimes. My favorite tracks from her mixtape are The Blast, Blasted, Champion, Clockwork, Geekin, and Silver Lining just to name a few. The mixtape rocks PERIOD!

Check out and download her mixtape on:
Lola Maxwell Mixtape on DMV Unplugged

Haha, yep Busta is one of my fav artists, he’s so creative & wild with it! Andre 3000, of course, Mos Def, and Biggie.

About your recent album and if it can be uploaded.
“Check the Rhyme” was meant to be just something “slight” for the summer time. Nothing too heavy, but would love for it to be played in heavy rotation, haha. I was actually surprised when I got back the feedback I did. The artist is always the most critical of his/her work, so with that said I didn’t really think it was that hot. But, I guess I was wrong! People are feeling it and getting the idea of my “flow”. The purpose of the project was to actually get people to hear my lyricism, that’s why I mainly chose beats many would be familiar with.
