2x Grammy Award Winning, groundbreaking iconic music group, and Hip Hop pioneers Arrested Development recently released their new album ‘Don’t Fight Your Demons.”  The 16-track album features a selection of eclectic musicians including Kuf Knotz, Skyy High, Christine Elise, O’hene Savant, Rambo, Let The Dirt Say Amen, Fro Magnum Man, MRK SX, and is executively produced by Speech for Vagabond Productions and Configa for Configaration Records.

“Becoming” is the first video off the album and truly sets the tone for what fans can expect from the album. It’s infectious beats along with dually clapping and striking drums with vacillating piano keys are soul-shaking, while the intricate storytelling and bold images are eye awakening.

Speech shares his vow to become the best he can be and transcends us back to age nine, teen years, and young adulthood. His vivid memories expose domestic violence, his journey into the streets with hopes of earning respect, and harsh lessons behind bars.  Upon his release, a new devout way of thinking takes over by means of glorified sermons.

The captivating chorus and invigorating energy from the group ignite a sense of freedom and elation that needs to be celebrated. Watch “Becoming” and stream ‘Don’t Fight Your Demons’ below.

“Becoming” is dedicated to Anthony Johnston (from the film 16 Bars)

The group assures fans and listeners this is no hit or miss album.  Each track is distinct in style, flow, and vibe, with influential wordplay and infectious soundscapes. They breakdown and take apart worldly injustices, the current state of racism, grueling masks of politics, and on the flip side offer empowering gems on how to overcome and rise through. The production throughout the entire album channels a continuous kaleidoscope of invigorating bass, soul, funk, worldly tones, and even innovative cadences ear-pleasing to a younger generation of music connoisseurs. ‘Don’t Fight Your Demons’ ideally serves as a “how-to” handbook brimming with incomparable lyricism, storytelling, and cognizant awareness delivered in a fashion only Arrested Development can carry through.

Dj Iceman And Kept See-Beat Lessonz

Published

on

Dj Iceman is back with another project for the year and he brought his friend and mentor Kept See along for the ride.
Kept See who is a prenominal emcee, got into production when he couldn’t find beats that were up to his standards. and over the years he has proven to be a top notch producer as well. Dj iceman having retired from a 30+ year dj career didn’t know what to do next creatively and Kept See suggested he get into production. reluctant at first it took a bigger push from Kept for him to get going and he hasn’t looked back since. both has had numerous placements with artists and on tv/videos and have torn down quite a few shows together. they are both members of the Wu-Tang affiliate groups GGO nd Dirty Clanzmen. This beat tape is a celebration of their friendship. on Kept See’s end, it is a passing of the torch to his student (he’s not retiring anytime soon) and on Icemans part its a homage to his mentor. each have 5 tracks on this album showing off their unique styles. Kept See’s lush, polished sound with crisp drums and flowing samples. and with Dj Iceman, you can see Kept Sees influence but his style is more rough around the edges with that Brooklyn feel to it.  The love of Hip-Hop can be heard in each track and its good to see that there are still some producers out there that embody the essence of true Hip-Hop.
You can reach Kept See and Dj iceman through their social media for beats and verses
