D'Lyfa Reilly is a poet and rapper from Manchester, UK. He first burst onto the UK hip-hop scene in 2011 aged 19, and gained notoriety and features on national radio play with a string of self-released EPs.

In 2015 D'Lyfa took a hiatus from music, taking time out to study, start a family, and build a home. During this period he continued writing poetry and raps, working on his craft and reflecting on the growth and changes in his life.

After finding a new rhythm in life, D'Lyfa contacted friend and former collaborator Aver (Village Live Records) in 2019, looking to finish off old projects and begin work on new material. The two spent 18 months building a cohesive body of work that blended some of the songs they started as early at 2013 with new tracks they had made.

Young MA Responds to her getting shot.

 Young MA was shot?


"Y'all know I be chilling..." out of Young MA's own mouth as she went on Instagram Live to address the rumors that she was shot. Sounding astonished at the statement that she had been involved in a shooting in ATL, the New York Rapper was not adamant about capitalizing off of this open Publicity opportunity. In the Live she mentions a song that she was about to drop but now thinks it would be in bad taste. So this rumor may have cheated us out of some long awaited new music.




[Update] Ashanti V Keyshia Cole is Back On

 Ashanti Verzuz Keyshia Cole? Is it back on?






So, Ashanti is now Covid Free. Does this mean we can get our Verzuz back on. We desperately need to see the faceoff between two queens of singing. And I know Keyshia Cole has to be real anxious for this as well.

Looking through the comments of Ashanti's Instagram post announcing that she had been cleared of Covid-19, You can see the fans urge her to take care of herself, not for her own well-being, but for the sake of the Verzuz match. This shows you how anticipated this match had been deemed. 

So, Ashanti, for your family and fans, please stay healthy. And Keyshia don't you go getting sick on us now. Not even a damn cold young lady, with all due respect. 

[UPDATE] ITS BACK ON. JANUARY 21ST 2021 8 PM ET

About:

Detroit hip-hop artist keemthefranchize presents his latest mixtape called BLACK SUMMER.

This “Free EP” is described as an expression about the dark space, while embracing this extraordinary dark race. BLACK SUMMER stays true to the lyrical word-play and storytelling style that fans of keemthefranchize have come to love and expect.

When asked about the inspiration behind BLACK SUMMER, Keem explains that "things came to a tipping point. I was already in a dark place from dealing with the effects of covid-19, losing my godmother, the racial injustice, remembering last summer but grateful to be out of that dark spot, and then I was blindsided by a situation with some friends of mine. I normally don’t speak on things that bother me. I usually bottle it up, but I felt like this time it was necessary to speak on it.” Although it was a dark time, Keem says that he was also able to get in tune with his skin, the melanin, and have pride in his blackness. “I’ve never spoke on race when previous injustices bothered me because I felt awkward and fearful.” Keem hopes that BLACK SUMMER will inspire others to process and heal from their own dark spots. He says, “We all have dark moments, but being vulnerable and transparent about it is the start of healing.”
