Now Playing: Moh Sohrabi

It’s been forever since I’ve done a Now Playing because I didn’t want to write about music that I didn’t fully love. This morning I was on the hunt for good music and I came up being blown away by this guy named Moh Sohrabi. I’m completely blown away that I don’t even know where to start. To the beginning, I guess?

Moh Sohrabi is a young guy from Northern Virginia. He’s basically from my backyard. When I say that I mean that he’s from the same city that I live in and I believe he attends one of my high schools rivals. So, I’m definitely supporting a hometown artist today.

As a reviewer I’ve heard a lot of music and comparing upcoming artist to famous artist comes natural. The only person I could really compare him to is Mac Miller because of the way he flows with his lyrics and his voice which are two things that caught my attention from the start.

Sohrabi raps to the hottest radio hits and he makes them his own. I took the time to listen all of the tracks he had on his ReverbNation page. First, I listened to him rap some well know rap beats like Aston Martin Music, Fireman, and Who Dat. Then, he took Ke$ha’s Tik Tok beat and rap to that. It’s cool that he can rap to anything, but it’s even better that he can make it flow.

There’s the beat, the flow and of course the lyrics. The lyrics to his songs have edge, fire, and feelings. Sometimes when I listen to artist I listen to the first song on their track list and It’s the most amazing song they have and as I go down I feel less impressed. With Moh Sohrabi, I get more and more impressed by how he uses his words. He also uses another language for time to time. This guy has passion and being passionate is the best because the words carry more meaning. ‘Dope Shit’ was just as it says in the title. It was Dope Shit. I can’t pick a favorite. I can’t recommend listening to just one song. I recommend listening to at least the first 5 songs. Then, I know you’ll be hooked.

I could use more of my words to express how great of a rapper this artist is, but I don’t think you’ll be able to grasp the full awesomeness that is Moh Sohrabi. If he made a mixtape, I’d buy three copies and tell my friends to buy it. I’d even get my family to buy it. Seriously. So, stop reading this, open a new tab or whatever, and check this guy out!

Be A Character

So many times when I tell people that I am writer and that I write books they’ll say you should make me a character in your next book. At first I laughed at this, but as the number of people who said this grew and the amount of people that kept repeating that they wanted to be a character in my book didn’t stop. I started to get a little annoyed. I don’t think annoyed is the right word, but it fits. I’m fine with people that joke about being in my book, but for those people that think I should seriously put them in a book I always ask why?  Why are you such a special person that a character should be based off of you? I don’t mean this in a mean way, but many of these people are very basic people. They live and breathe and they don’t do anything really worth a story. Everyone says that people like to read stories they can relate to. I am sure a lot of people could relate to these normal people, but in my writing I don’t like to be normal. I love a good twist and excitement. I have meet plenty of interesting people that have made their way into my stories. I love putting people I have met into my stories, I love that, but there has to be a reason why someone would want to read about you. I feel so mean because I am telling people that no one wants to read about their lives. I love you normal people, but I can’t write about you. But if you’ve got a unique personality, you’re a totally interesting person, you want a story written about you or have a story that could be inspiring I’d love to write it. kill my twitter with tweets. @egpubs. I am always writing. It takes me like a week to write a novel size book. I could do a little ghost writing.

Anyways, enjoy your weekend, if you’re in NOVA or DC it’s DC’s fashion week! It’s coming to an enddd!

Oh, boy!

I WANT TO BE A GIRLY GIRL TOO! Maybe it’s the pink nail polish on my finger nails or pink lip gloss I am wearing on my lips. I don’t know why, but today I wanted to talk about boys! *turns on Boys by Britney Spears*

I am really too busy with my writing to deal with certain types of guys. I’m rather mature for my age, so dealing with guys that don’t understand my drive to be successful is hard. If I’ll be wasting time I don’t want any part of it. Don’t worry I believe everyone deserve a chance.

Lately guys have been real annoying though. I can’t deal with immaturity, or jealously. I want to have fun, but I don’t want to feel like I am with a high schooler.

I like classy guys. They act real nonchalant and understanding. They don’t play games, they say how they feel and I know what I am getting into. Honestly is really everything. I love creative minds, energetic personalities, and hopefully their fashionable. My standards really don’t seem that high, but there’s not that many guys that are down to earth around.

I feel like I just have my ad for eharmony. This is so corny and cheesy, but I wanted to talk about boys, so  I talked about boys. Hope you enjoyed this!

Now Playing: TkO

Today my music review takes us into the world of Electronic flash Dance with a little House splashed with Dub. As of late there has been a lot of artist, such as Britney Spears and The Black Eyed Peas, that are using more electronic or dance type feel to their music. Many people who love mainstream music don’t realize that there’s a whole group and movement with Electronic music. There are people that have been making this music way before Britney Spears. I have a young artist, age 19, recently started in this music genre.  I say recently as in the last 4 or 5 years of his life picked up producing this music. He’s from London, UK and his name is TkO. I received a message to check out his music and I thought sure why not. When I heard “Call The Amb’b’Lance” I instantly started moving my shoulders and saying, “there’s a fire”.  The backbeats are composed very well and the chipped voice is perfectly spaced. After the first time I listened to that song the words were imbedded in my head. I found myself an hour later saying, “There’s a fire, there’s a fire”.  From a song like “A Love Letter For Ms. Rogers” and “I Left My Heart In Durban” you can see how all over the map this guy can be. He isn’t only using Electronic dub beats. He puts a piano, strings, Hip-hop bass, drums, etc. People who make music want to express themselves, but at the same time differ from everything you’ve already heard. TkO expresses himself and differs from most of the music I’ve heard. He’s music shows no boundaries and I like that. There’s a fire starting in my heart and it will start in yours when you check out his music.

ARTIST – TkO

The Sane Passion

Writing is what I do. It’s what I love. It’s what I am good at. I could do this in my sleep if my brain allowed me to. Even though when I was little I never saw writing in my future. I had the imagination when I was little, but I was horrible at writing. I grew up challenged with learning disabilities. I was writing letters and numbers backwards.  I could talk about my ideas just fine, but writing them down was very hard. My brain couldn’t figure out how things were spelled and I would skip whole words in a sentence without realizing it till my teacher would read what I wrote back to me. Through years of special classes my writing, my imagination, and my brain finally started to work together. To me it’s so crazy how much the special classes helped me. Writing started to become this disease to me. I get ideas from everything and my mind is always thinking about writing. My mind is like a never stopping movie theater. I have so many movies I need to show to the world, but it’s difficult to show off your writing. Most people don’t like reading, so I have to figure a way to hook them. I can hook then, but I have to get them into my door before they pick up a book. Musicians can easily record and produce music. You press play and you listen nothing more to it. With writing people sometimes say they don’t have time to read all of it, or they get distracted. Reading is something that is usually a one task type thing. You can’t clean your room and read a book unless it’s a book on tape. But I don’t have that technology. With every post on this blog I try to hook people into seeing what I am all about because I won’t quit my writing. It will take some time to become known, but I will achieve if I believe.
