MJ: You hit fans with something different and innovative with this new album “Medicine for the Soul”. You curated a captivating blend of R&B and Hip Hop. Talk about the album and the mindset behind creating it.

TySoul: Both Maine and myself already collaborated on multiple records before this album, and everything we made together came out great. So, we thought, why not make a full project together, and we did just that. Myself being a Chris Brown fan, I wanted to add a new school R&B flare to the album, while having Maine add his old-school influences along with his amazing lyricism.

Maine: being from New York, Hip-Hop and R&B go hand and hand. Like Nas and Lauryn, Meth and Mary, Father MC with Jodeci, and the list goes on and on. We just wanted to bring that feeling back.

MJ: You enlisted an elite selection of producers for the album, with an incredible ability to orchestrate soundscapes that heighten the raw emotion and impeccable lyricism. Talk about that, as well as how you two linked up.

TySoul: We originally linked up nearly a decade ago from a mutual contact, we never collaborated at the time, but we did a few shows together. Years later Maine called me to come into JL Studios to do a hook for Mercy Gang and after that, it was a wrap…

Maine: We worked with a handful of producers including Know- it beats and Da Leadgeon who helped us blend that Hip Hop and R&B with today’s twist. Plus, we both get busy with the pen!

MJ:  Was the goal of the album to expand your fan base by stepping out of the box? Was it to display your versatility as artists and your agility to steer in different lanes?

TySoul: I think both of us somewhat stepped out of our comfort zones for the better. I was able to experiment with a more commercial sound rather than the old-school R&B type influences that were prevalent in my first album “Two-Sided.” I feel that we both displayed our versatility but also stayed true to our artistry.

Maine: I feel as an MC I should be able to adapt to any genre while still being me.

MJ:  What single off the album do you anticipate taking off both on charts and with listeners/fans?

TySoul: I think that “Addicted” or “Don’t You” are two of our more heartfelt records. Both talk about relationship-based content but also have an upbeat flow and awesome production.

Maine: “Serenity” is going to make a statement because it deals with some crucial issues going on in the world now. “Addicted”, “Old Thing Back”, and “Move Ya Body” are extraordinarily strong records as well.

MJ: Take a minute to reflect and share anything else about “The Medicine for the Soul”

TySoul: This project personally helped me to experiment with rapping more. Maine pushed and encouraged me to spit a few bars, and I was able to rap a few good verses on this album. Even through this pandemic, we stayed motivated and in touch, which enabled us to finish this project strong and in time when we were able to return to the studio.

Maine: We want people and our fans to get that great feeling listening to our music. We’re just trying to put authentic Hip Hop and R&B back on the map.

Special thanks to Dan Rosler, Amanda Rogan, Lambo Lo, Suspect, Gus, and Paulie…#RIPHefty

1137Q Atomic front (1)

 

Seasra23 and Apokalips the Archangel of TopShelfMuzik premiere their new project 1137Q. The 19-track album produced entirely by Seasera23 features top-notch elites including DJ GlibStylez, DJ Modesty, Foul Monday, Lex, Kesper, Crippled, Hoffa, Supreme Sniper, Voices De Silencio, D-Rex, Illy the Wise, and Godfather part 3.

TopShelfMuzik and Apokalips the Archangel are reputable for keeping Queens on the map when it comes to authentic NY Hip Hop, and 1137Q is no exception. Seasra23 delivers sheer ‘fix-your face’ head-nodding cadences while Apokalips administers top quality rhymes with lyrical, knockout jabs.

On Dangerous Minds, Apokalips embodies a Queens-thoroughbred lifestyle while showing off his impeccable booth profession.  He drills an image being hand in hand with forty’s and spray cans rocking Polo plaid, yet a leader who always shows face and is never undercover. There’s no escaping the “dangerous mind” of this lyrical militant or his bars that sink to the pit of our stomachs.

In Straight Out The Zoo Apokalips represents his Queen’s roots and exemplifies the similarities of street and wildlife survival as well as a strong-armed emcee preying on fallacious industry players. All the stress keep a ni**a depressed until I’m vexed than the whole world feeling possessed / Never rest Top Shelf Hip-Hop in effect / Apokalips stay humble no need to impress / I got next cancel the haters and the special effects / when I flex call me the finisher snatching your breath to the death.”

Another lead off the album is Aggression. Set in a boxing ring going round for round, bar for bar, and verse for verse, “mumbling buffoons” are reminded that Hip Hop runs through Apokalips bloodline and he will continue to keep it real until his last breath.

An unforgettable track and hair-raising one is Cycles of Life which depicts the gifts and curses of life. Surrounded by dead bodies, mothers crying, and mankind fighting to become survival of the fittest; it only makes sense to embrace what lies ahead. Apokalips vows his lyrics and spirit will live on through his family until his resurrection…

Each track is unique with flow and deliverance, yet consistent with a boom-bap vibe sure to please Hip Hop purists worldwide. Stream 1137Q and connect with Seasra23 of TopShelfMuzik and Apokalips the Archangel below.
