The 30th of October 2020, Honolulu-based rapper TAUREAN MEACHAM is exploding back onto the conscious hip-hop scene with ‘BLAKK RADIKAL’, his third project this year and his best work to date. This album is raw, real, full of rage — and it deserves to be heard. He’s talking ancestors and martyrs (‘Saviour’), slavery and shootings (‘Hands In The Sky’), anxiety and insomnia (‘PTSD’). It’s a lot to tackle in one record — and yet Meacham nails it with inimitable finesse. This, above all else, is an album of substance.


“The album is my most complete work to date. There are no wasted bars.” — TAUREAN MEACHAM From an epic intro with soaring Bond-esque orchestral textures (‘The Gift and The Curse’), to a playful Latin inspired/speakeasy jazz crossover (‘Camp Lo’), to the bassy, bossy trap track ‘Thrones’, Meacham proves over and again that he’s not only an artist who understands melody and rhythm, but a self-managed, self-published hip-hop veteran whose level of storytelling, rap flow, production value and attention to detail is impressively, consistently masterful. “The sound is the album spans all sounds of hip hop.

Like a jewel handpicked from the chocolate swamps of the Dirty South, hails the Goddaughter from the Muddy Waters of New Orleans 2Meka Diaz aka Meka Montana of WNMG/TRU Records. No stranger to the music industry, 2Meka is a protégé of former Master P’s No Limit Records and TRU Records general Corey “C-Murder” Miller. Although C-Murder has been incarcerated for a wrongful conviction since 2002, he continues to have a powerful influence in the music industry. He recently passed the torch to his long-time friend Cuttboy G-Dinero by naming him President of TRU Records.


In an industry that is now heavily dominated by beautiful vixens, Meka found a way to claim her own lane with the single B.M.S (Bang My Sh**) which she describes as “a record that just took off.” “COVID-19 got alotta musicians in the studio. I had decided to focus strictly on activism, criminal justice reform, acting, and branding my voice tags and voiceovers.


We have lost so many friends and family to COVID, the world as we once knew it is forever changed. Like so many musicians, we ended up back in the studio doing what we always loved doing….making music.


I was downstairs and heard G-Dinero putting the track together…I heard it and ran in the studio and started rapping a few lines. G was like ‘let’s drop it now.’ We recorded the song in one session, got it mixed and mastered, and sent it to a few DJs. A team of Coalition DJs was the first music professionals to hear it and I got rave reviews from male and female DJs.

Washington D.C. Franchise TYG joined forces with Kansas City artist Rory Fresco who received massive fame in 2016 from Soundcloud to remix the hit single and bring a new element to the track. Franchise TYG delivers a range of sounds that can be described as gaudy, dark, or even commercial at times. His vocal abilities, catchy hooks, & lyricism, backed by infectious beats, makes him a one of a kind unique rapper.


Extensive and gaudy, both artists portray militant rap tactics in exuberantly expressing themselves on the track. Purists of the genre and new fans of the melodic sound would find solace in “Ice On Me” remix.


Promiscuous and deleterious themes of significance sonically are predicated imprudently in lyricism blend in well. A bash array of sound combine to make a porticoes beat to fully round out the track.


The single is available on all platforms and only starts the momentum for the young D.C. artist. You can follow him on Instagram and listen to the remix here.
