NEW VIDEO: Delayed Flights

Available on ITunes/Spotify/Soundcloud: http://hyperurl.co/npwg19

 

“I know I took a little long I was stuck up in my zone trying to find a way to grow…” Passport Rav wants his music to take the listener to a deeper place of thought.  For quite some time Rav wanted to bring his work overseas and perform.  Well he finally had a chance to tour London with Dre Skuffs (https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLMovjWla5lnM-QgsF_SkFIBrvsha5jPDR) recently and has been invigorated ever since.  Although he literally experienced “Delayed Flights” while traveling throughout Europe,  this self produced song means something a bit deeper.  Passport Rav considers himself to be a late bloomer.  We are all on a flight in life and while some of us are on a delayed one, you will none the less reach your destination.  Do not rush the process, BeFlyStayHungry!

  This song will be featured on his EP entitled “Gentrified Snacks” coming later this fall.

 

 

 

NEW MUSIC: Rav.P – Blck Evil (prod by Rav.P)

On a play with words, Rav.P asks “why everything thats black is bad?” Black according to the dictionary is tied to words like grim, evil and bad luck. Rav.P challenges you to question who was behind these words and its meaning. It is time that we as a people and especially the police in America, to change our thoughts on these words that may strike fear. Rav says, “I have debates all the time with people that hate the use of the N word but when the Police get the description that invokes fear it is not the N word. It is black…”

Old Kanye [prod by Rav.P]

While Kanye is still alive and healthy, my spirit told me to shed light on how much of an influence this man has had on my life. During a time in the early 2000’s when you had to be a hardcore gangster rapper to even be taken seriously, Kanye came out of nowhere. I remember his single “Through the Wire” being played on Hot 97 and him introducing himself to NY for the first time and he received so much hate. I was listening from NJ saying to myself that people are stupid and watch this man be huge one day. I compare Kanye to Muhammed Ali and people look at me like im crazy. When Ali was dancing around that ring making people look stupid in a braggadocios way everyone including his own people were saying that he was crazy and “arrogant.” Well now that he is disabled we all want to honor and forget how much hate they sent to that rich legendary boxer. Now we have a rich, already legendary producer/artist Kanye West that gets so much hate, from rumors by blogs and people having the general consensus that “he is just an asshole.” We may not agree to everything a person does or say, but from the artistic standpoint we need to show love to our legends while still alive.I remember driving and hearing Roses one late night in Montclair NJ and crying at a stop sign like a baby. Nothing has ever touched me to my core like that before and bring up so much hidden pain that I was masking. IDK if this message will ever get to Kanye West, my biggest music inspiration but if so I just wanna say thank you. Thank you for keeping the culture alive and NOT GIVING A FUCK about opinions. Thank you KANYE WEST!
