Music, Original MixMike DooseComment

Hip hop and electronic music go together like cookies and cream. Having both grown out of the disco music and early DJs and beat makers of the 70s and 80s, it's no surprise. On Brooklyn rapper Thutmose's new track "Still I Rise" he sings catchy driving hooks and spits rhythmic verses over a chugging house beat that nicely blends a classic four-on-the-floor beat with contemporary ethereal production elements (word has it that it was produced by Emmit Fenn). Lyrically it's a pump-up anthem about being "in it to win it" and pushing on with your dreams despite others trying to keep you down—which is part of the reason it was chosen it was chosen to be used as a sports anthem on national television by the MLB Network this season. Looking forward to watching the rise of this young and talented new artist.
