Lost In St.Pete?

The third annual “Lost In St.Pete” festival is happening this weekend May 6-8th at various venues throughout the 727.

🏕💯❔

Celebrating three days of local music and art, this years line up features some of the Tampa Bay Areas most talented creatives. I wanted to shout out some of my favorite artists that are must see throughout the weekend.

🏕💯😈

Let’s start with Night 1. One of the most prolific emcees out of the 813, YZM hits The Bends at 12:30. He’s your favorite rappers favorite rapper.

🏕💯🎵
🏕💯🌊

St.Pete Hip Hop legend DJ Knox will be holding down the Deuces Live stage all night. The home Onlyonetwo is headlining this show, so come out if you want to hear your favorite cuts off “Black Alchemist”.

🏕💯❤️‍🔥

In my opinion the whole line up for Urban Drinkery is stacked. From the one and only DJ Donnie Luv will be playing your favorites all night. She is our host, and our everything.

🏕💯🔥

First up to the stage is the homie Kalib Music. Kalib has been putting in some much work over the last few years, honing his craft at various events and his own “Drive Way Concerts”. Can’t wait to hear what new joints he brings to the stage

🏕💯

Next up is Psych Montano. I haven’t heard much music from him yet but I will fix that after this weekend. I know he reps 813 pretty heavy so hype to see what he’s all about.

I am unfamiliar with Nico Sweet but the hype videos she has been dropping for the show got me excited. I am sure I heard her on a feature somewhere but now I can take the deep dive.

🏕💯🐼🍃💨

Repping the Zhu, Heyeyella will be gracing the stage, performing cuts off his 727 Classic “Strange Noize” as well as his more recent project “Cloud Crown”. With tracks like “Underworld Funk” and “Different ViBEZ” heavy in the rotation, I can’t wait to see those joints live.

🏕💯💎

One of my favorite artists out of the 813 is Drogotdoe. This live performance will hold me over til his next project drops. He could play any track off his discography and imma get hype. We need some deep cuts for the OG fans though.

🏕💯🍍

Headlining the Urban Drinkery Night 1 stage is one of the Bay Area’s top emcees Gat$. Repping 813, you already know the homies set is gonna be packed with cuts off his collab project with Jordan Patrick “2 Much 2 Robb”. I’d like to see a couple deep cuts for the day 1 fans, as well as a couple joints off last years “Robbed”.

🏕💯 👁 🎥

At the Lost Out venue, one of my favorite groups, with one of the dopest names “Eyelid Cinema” will be hitting the stage. I have been meaning to catch a live show from them, so now is my chance.

🏕💯🥂

For Night 1 at Cage Brewing, Open Culture will be performing at 9:30 in Cage 1. I really dig the more progressive tone the group has been dabbling with on tracks like “Oblivion, at Best”, which has one of the best videos of the year to accompany it.

🏕💯🦐

The homie Jimbo Shrimp is hitting the stage at 4:45, over at Steep Station. Haven’t seen a live performance from Jimbo but his tracks are always good to just vibe with.

Sean.MP3 and the rest of the 40BandCulture will be repping the burg at the 9:45 slot over at Steep Station. They always shut it down over at the “Drive Way Concert” and at last years inaugural “Burg Day”. Who knows we might even get a sneak peek at a single from Sean’s upcoming project.

🏕💯 🙏🏼 💧

Now let’s get to Day 2. ABR is pulling up to Deuces Live on Sunday at 5:45. I want to hear track off “Mofongo+” as well as off his latest “ABRNB”. That “Sweet Rice” joint is heavy in the rotation.

🏕💯 🪦

The lord of the grave, Deezy Wee The Reaper as well as Tony Handz are kicking things off over at the “Lost Out Day 2” stage. Not sure if Deezy will drop anything off the upcoming Grave Mix, but the city needs some new Deezy.

Haven’t seen a performance from Dea and Saint since the early days over at The Factory. Their set at 6:30 on the “Lost Out Day 2” stage will be a real treat.

Turnt Philosopher will be holding it down at “The Nest Day 2” stage at 9:45, as well as during intermissions.

🏕💯 🧩

The art portion of the festival is titled “Puzzle Piece” which is an art show and silent auction.

With the likes of i.b.o.m.s., Zulu Painter, Sebastian Coolidge, and Zaire bringing new pieces to the show, you already know it’s going to be a bidding war. I think i.b.o.m.s. posted a teaser for his piece on his IG story so be on the look out for that.

It is a blessing to see events like this being put on in our community. It’s long overdue for the creatives in our city to get some shine. Big shout out to Lost In St.Pete for putting this all together.

Sunny Fritz- The FRITZTAPE Vol.1

Sunny Fritz drops is most introspective project to date, showing a wide array of emotions and sounds on “The FRITZTAPE Vol.1”.

🏕💯☀️

The “Intro” kicks off the album with Sunny speaking directly to the listener, putting us on to what we should expect from the album, a roller coaster of emotions.

“Cut Me Off” is one of my favorite tracks of the year. The way Sunny flipped his southern Trill style over the NY Drill beat was a vibe for sure. I wouldn’t want Sunny to dabble all the way into the sub genre but a track here and there is the move. We need Frankie X on the remix for this joint, imma speak it into existence.

“Potion” featuring Lil Fancy & E $krilla is on some Tampa shit. The feel good beat just has you floating. $krilla did his thing on the hook, going for more of a more chilled out tone, rather than the street vibes he’s known for. lol Fancy does his thing as always, dropping a different flow to fit the vibe of the song. It was dope how Sunny speeds up his flow mid verse, while still fitting with the slowed down vibe of the track.

“Rrockstarr” should be played in every strip club throughout Tampa Bay. Not sure who made that beat but it’s a banger for sure. The way Sunny flipped his vocals on this joint I am not sure I have heard done before. We definitely need visuals for this one next.

“Runnin & Gunnin” is that classic Sunny. With the accompanying visuals it’s a great street single to place at the mid way point of the album. Sunny still on his street shit so don’t get it twisted. That who shot ya line was a standout line for me.

“Alley Oop” with KirbLaGoop is on some Florida shit. This was one of the first joints to drop from the tape so it’s been heavy in the rotation. The visuals dropped for the track are a vibe with that gas station esthetic. Kirb pulls up and does his thing on the track, adding some gravitas to the song.

They did this one for Tampa Bay mane. “ Sea Sick” featuring Kent Loon is what happens when 727 and 813 come together. The two are no strangers to each other but I feel this is their best collab to date. That beat is one of them ones. The video is a vibe for sure with all the green. We need Chester Watson on the remix.

“Animal” featuring Niko Is has Sunny on his boom bap shit. Prior to the release of the tape Sunny had been dropping a slew of freestyle videos building anticipation for the project. A majority of those tracks had a boom bap vibe so it was good to see this style make the final cut of the tape. The glistening piano beat has a Griselda vibe to it. The playful hook on this one was a nice mix up of the more hardcore content on the album. We need Sunny on some more boom bap joints, it’s what we need.

“Broken Boy” send us back into our emotions. The atmospheric beat, had a sense of longing to it. On one of the more introspective tracks, Sunny spits his heartache of love lost. Sunny is really in his pocket on this track. It’s good to see him add in more introspective tracks like this, connecting the listener to him on a more personal level.

The final track “Conversations With The Sun Pt.1” is a classic joint at this point. The melancholic track has Sunny spitting on the daughter he can’t see as well as the grind he has been on lately to change that. Despite all the hardships in life just keep your head up, it will be alright.

Really amazing project from the homie Sunny Fritz. His previous projects have reached 813 Essential status put I feel this one is the most complete of them all. It shows us all the sides of Sunny, and then some. If this is just a part one I can only image what’s in store for part 2.

DYINGOUTSOUTH- Sicka Video Review

Repping Darkaire, DYINGOUTSOUTH drops eerie visuals for their track “Sicka”, shot and directed by Good Job Adult.

🏕💯😵🥂
🏕💯🥂

When I first heard “Sicka” off the recently missing “D.O.S. Chapter 1”, I instantly need a video. I love that almost Trill mystical style beat that fits well with D.O.S.’s darker tone. The decision to shoot the video in the woods was the right choice, mystical warlock vibes.

DYINGOUTSOUTH

The track starts off with Tony0k & Mystic Jit both rapping at the same time but than it slowly goes to Tony0k to spit his verse. That Sensu Bean line was pretty fire

Tony0k
Okay!!!

Tony0k is my favorite member of D.O.S. He always brings mad energy to his verses and stage performances. When he hits that double time flow like mid verse, you got no choice but to get wild. “Running through the city with a weird bitch” was a standout line.

🏕💯🎱
Mystic Jit
Warlock

Mystic Jit did his thing on the track. If Tony0k brings the energy, Mystic Jit definitely brings that laid back Trill esthetic, which is one of my favorite aspects of D.O.S.’s music. That sniff a brick line is one of my favorite bars off the track. It was really dope how they both join back up at the end with the “Sicka” line, very dope song structure.

🎥 Good Job Adult

As always Good Job Adult set the right tone for the visuals, giving the track a spooky vibe to match the sound. DYINGOUTSOUTH is one of my favorite groups on the scene right now, making some of the best underground music Tampa Bay, matter of fact all of Florida has seen in awhile. Shout out to Darkaire!

Michaela Paladio- Clouds

Singer- Songwriter Michaela Paladio puts the game on notice that she is in album mode on her latest single “Clouds”.

🏕💯☁️

When I hear Michaela’s voice she instantly transports me to that jazz lounge vibe. Her voice is smooth but also very strong. Tracks like “Alive” and “Run This Town” show the range that she has vocally.

Her latest single “Clouds” has more of an atmospheric tone to it, yet is hard hitting with the 808s. You can definitely chill out and burn one to this track on the late night tip.

Michaela really hits them high notes on the hook, which is reminiscent of Blue Raspberry off of Raekwon’s “Heaven Or Hell”.

I know the track just dropped but some visuals for the single would be dope as well. That way we can all float in the clouds with Michaela.

Not sure if Michaela will continue with this more atmospheric vibe on the full project, but I can’t wait to hear what’s next to come from one of the best voices in the Tampa Bay Area.

Dosja OffThaCorna- Palm Trees & Fentanyl EP

Outside World ENT’s own Dosja OffThaCorna brings some of the hardest streets raps to the Tampa Bay Area on “Palm Trees & Fentanyl”.

🏕💯🌐🦈 💊

With production primarily handled by Fettisuo, all the beats on this project bang. Off rips Dosja comes with that gutter shit on “Cross The Street”. Dosja holds his own with YZM and Suo himself providing some hard hitting bars of their own.

“2 Phones” is the perfect example of tracks Dosja should be making. We need a video of the big homie cooking that work in the trap for this one. Baby Corleone comes in at the end of the track and does his thing, his voice is very different sounding but fit over the hard hitting production.

“Pocket Of Sunshine” is one of my favorite tracks off the project. It was dope to hear Dosja on some different production. The beat has a trippy Madlib vibe to it. The storytelling aspect of the song adds for repeat listens. Shout out to Deleteeglitch.

Fettisuo brings that hyped up production on “Dog Days”. You better stay out of Dosja’ sway cause it could be your last day. Dosja’s flow is on the slower side, but he speeds it up on this joint.

“Sink Or Swim Freestyle” is some cinematic rap shit. Love that beat provided by Suo. The theme of the song really hits home. Once you jump off that porch it really is sink or swim. The cinematic vibe of the beat is the perfect compliment to Dosja’s true to life street raps.

Really solid project from Dosja to help bring momentum to his upcoming full length. I feel like “Sink Or Swim” and “2 Phones” will really have legs in the streets and are a must for live shows. “Pocket Of Sunshine” is a deep cut for sure though. Need that “2 Phones” video next.

Gat$ & Jordan Patrick- 2 Much 2 Robb

After dropping back to back 813 Essential Albums, Gat$ & Jordan Patrick raise the bar another notch on the 3rd installment of the Robb Series, “2 Much 2 Robb”.

🏕💯🍍🦅

Off rips the duo smacks you in the face with “Control”. If I still played football this shit would be my walk out music. Love Gat$ energy on this one. This is one of the hardest hitting tracks I’ve heard all year, Jordan did his thing.

Not sure what film or show the sample on “Zion” is from but it’s sounds like some 30s gangster shit. Those keys from Jordan are too cold. The recently dropped visuals for this track brought it to the next level. That features line is a stand out for me.

“Frost 3:16” is my favorite track on the album. Those chimes doe. The way Jordan shifts the beat after the hook during the second verse is my favorite part of the track. The piano rift mid verse was a dope touch. At the listening party I felt this track in my soul and that has carried on to this day.

“Differences” with Keisha Grey reminds me of something that would have been on Gat$ previous album “Robbed”. The hook is one of my favorites on the album, it really hits home. That flute sample in the background added to the soundscape. Keisha Grey closed out the track perfectly. This is low key on some French Riviera vibes.

Gat$ brings the homie Jay Browne through on the wonky head knocker “Whip Appeal”. I would like to see visuals for this joint, that would be really dope for the 813. Jae Browne has been killing the features as of late. Before each emcee spits I dig how Jordan slows down the beat a bit to fit the flow. Big 813 shit on this one.

Jordan killed the strings on “CASTAWAY”. This is one of those tracks you put on when your out on the boat or beach smoking that za. Really fun track, love it’s placement on the project. one of my favorite hooks as well.

“JERSEYS” needs to be played at the next championship celebration. This one definitely has end of the movie vibes to it. Gat$ spits some real shit about fake friends, putting them in there place.

Despite having a bit of a somber tone to it “WHATEVER” is one of my favorite tracks on the project. You can really feel Gat$ emotions on this track. Anyone that has lost someone close to them can relate to this joint. I lost my best friend to suicide, so this one hits different for me. Jordan snapped on the beat, I love anytime he adds in some Cloud Rap vibes to his production.

“MONEY PHONE” has a funky aspect to it. I really dig Gat$ flow, how it’s a little bit more sped up at points. Solid way to end out the project.

The homies from the 813 really out did themselves on this one. I feel they topped both their previous efforts, which is rare in a trilogy series. The listening party added some much to the album so I thank both of them for putting that together. I love what Gat$ & Jordan Patrick do for not only the 813 but the whole Tampa Bay scene as a whole, proving that great music will always rain supreme.

BTMVLE University

BTMVLE is back with brand new “University Caps” featuring the infamous “Dunce Cap Kid” on the front, and “BTMVLE” on the back. Each cap is premium embroidered with an adjustable leather strap on the back. With three different color combos the fits are endless.

🏕💯🏡

This red and black joint is my favorite of the whole drop. I have a Cowboy By Takeo tee that will go perfect with it. The leather strap on the back gives it that polo hat vibe.

Dunce Cap Kid
Jotta

For those that have the orange and green Cowboy tee or the limited BTMVLE camo tee , this piece is a must for you. A lot of people crap on orange but it’s one of my favorite colors depending on what it’s paired with. This is one I would stash until fall and then bring it out just in time for season.

Aqua

This shit right here was made for the summer. Throw on your Aqua, Cowboy tee and some Aqua 8s and your set my friend. The blue font really pops on this piece. I am glad they went with the leather strap on all three hats, instead of switching them up on each one.

Not sure how many of these hats are left so you better act fast before they are gone. If they do drop new color ways I would like to see a grey joint with a purple dunce cap kid, that would be fire.

The Usual Suspects

The homie Raheem Fitzgerald aka ABSTRACTPOET is on his Nick Fury shit, bringing together some of my favorite artists in the city all under one roof over at The Factory St.Pete for the “Usual Suspects” art show, on some 727 Avengers vibes.

🏕💯🏭

If you been following along with the camp over the last few years, many of these artists featured will be very familiar to you. With this event in my mind being a huge milestone for the cities art scene, I wanted to highlight the artists who will be showcasing their work at the show.

🏕💯🦂
NHO

Notorious for his collage work, ABSTRACTPOET has been building up to this moment for a min. I’ve gotten a couple sneak peeks at what pieces could make the show, but fingers crossed on seeing few nods to NHO and scorpions. Raheem and my brother Takeo have been in the lab working on a few collab pieces as well, so I hope to see one of those joints make the cut, on gang.

🏕💯🏁
Whole Lotta Ice

Scott Andrew Fisher screams “Americana” to me, garage vibes with a sense of nostalgia. His “Target Series”, as well has the new “ICE” pieces he has been working on lately are some of my favorite pieces he has showcased at SAFDS. It would be dope to see some 1 of 1 furniture make it’s way to the art show, brining diversity to the pieces.

🏕💯🗿🐐
User Interface

Shit to me this man is the GOAT! Although he is mostly known for his digital work, seeing Gallardo’s “Visual Language” collection in person last month was a life changing experience. I am not sure if he will be bringing out some new physical works or displaying some prior works, but if he brings out even one of the “10 Commandment” tablets, I’m gonna nerd out. As far as the digital works go anything with No PFP is a vibe, or some of the pieces from his “User Interface” collection.

🏕💯🏗

I am not to familiar with Justin Wagher but from what I’ve seen I really dig his almost Industrial but modern vibe. His pieces remind me of the same vibe the film “Rumble Fish” gives off. Not totally sure but I think he also did the telephone pole piece that was apart of the BTS “The Sky Is Falling” installation. Looking forward to meeting Justin at the event.

21st Century Cowboy
🏕💯 🌸

One of my favorite pieces from Bailey Gumienny is her Cowboy piece of Raheem. The accuracy of her portraits is next level. I am not sure what pieces she has in mind for the show but sign me up.

🏕💯🌪
Run

The homie Laurent is a jack of all trades. It’s going to be a real treat to see some of his latest paintings on display. The pieces he would have up in the old BTS studio were always a vibe. The Louie V bike is a statement piece to this day.

🏕💯🐝
HDA

The man himself i.b.o.m.s will be in the building as well. Bro is dropping pieces on the daily so he can pretty much pull up with whatever. I know he’s got a show at D.Gallerie coming up so possibly a piece from that show could be on display. A collab piece between Raheem and Jabari would change the game.

I am so happy this show is happening. The whole city needs to pull up for this one. Shout out to The Factory for hosting this event, and being one of the main hubs in the burg for thriving artists to showcase their work, as well as connect with their supporters. This is only the beginning.

Team Grey

Fresh off his “Just People With Ideas” art show, Robert Gallardo has unveiled his latest collection of t-shirts.

🏕💯🗿🐐

This shirt version of his latest piece “Cursor”, brings the piece to life. Of the new series of physical works from the show, “Cursor” was my favorite, glad it made the cut to be on a tee. With that grey color way you already know I gotta scoop that one up.

My first friend

This Tom from MySpace shirt is very nostalgic. He was a lot of our first friends back in the old MySpace’s days. Despite the platform being on the decline, Tom will always live on in our hearts and now on our shirts.

HEY YOU
GET OUT

If there is a WEB3 version of “Get Out” it should be called “Log Off”. Coming in grey and white color ways, you already know I’m going grey all day. When I see the shirt I also here “Hey You” by Jordan Patrick in my head so hopefully he could record the soundtrack.

Nomad

This one has big nomad vibes. Could this be a tease at some upcoming No More Land merch, or possibly a hint at a more nomadic state Gallardo will be returning to.

SS22
High Fashion

These joints are high fashion as hell. Simple and to the point. That grey one might be my favorite piece of the whole drop.

End Times

It could be the end of days or the end of times. So many different subtle meanings on this shirt is what hits for me. Out of all the white tees this is my favorite design.

The Only PFP is No PFP

This is a big shout out to the “No PFP Project” family. Down the road I will be incorporating the ones I own into my own line, but until then I have to get this one to show love. Maybe that long sleeve will drop for the winter collection.

📁

Sometimes the best thing to make is a new folder. Reminiscent of the folder rug Gallardo designed last year, this tee makes a perfect pairing to go with the rug. If a grey color way is available id pick it up.

Not sure if or when this collection is dropping, but I know personally I need about 3-4 of these joints for my wardrobe. With Grey Day on the way it’s time to stock up on the grey pieces.

Dyingoutsouth- Bich video breakdown

Darkaire affiliated Dyingoutsouth, drops the visuals to one of my favorite songs in the Tampa Bay Hip Hop scene right now “Bich”. With visuals from Good Job Adult, you already know I had to drop a video breakdown.

🏕💯 🥂 😵
All this stress

The grim vibe Dyingoutsouth portrays, fits perfectly with that Darkaire esthetic. The underground dingy tone is just what the city needed.

Tony0k
Squad

Tony0k starts the track off just spazzing on his verse. He brought a lot of energy and personality to the song, and made for my favorite moments of the video. It was dope how versatile Tony got with his flow.

Yayo
Skeeted

Between smoking stoges in the shower to slamming lines this video is doing shit no one else is. They really living what they are talking about. Big vibe.

Mystic Jit

Mystic Jit had a pretty dope verse, dabbling with some Uzi like flows. It was a nice contrast to the verse Tony0k put down. Very interested to hear more from Mystic Jit.

Ryan Beckford

Ryan Beckford comes through at the end of the track with a more melodic flow. That Dyingoutsouth High school line was pretty dope.

3 Eyes
Shout out Darkaire

With Darkaire fully behind the group at the moment, I see big things coming from Dyingoutsouth. Good Job Adult is able to set the vibe to go along with the music. Full review of their project coming soon.
