Raheem Devaughn the king of Neo Soul in the DMV area talks with HipHopWorld.com CEO Alphonso Griffin about his new label 368 Music representing the DMV. Also possible leaving Jive Records, and his love and passion for the Roster of talent his team has pulled together. He was with his premier artist Phil Ade as he spoke with us at SOB’s after Phils incredible performance.. Check it out only on HiphopWorld.com
Whether he is rapping about Kanye West interrupting Taylor Swift on “Tipsy Mood” or chronicling his life as he does on “My Story,” Ade brings his “A” game lyrically on every track; making “The Letterman” is an exceptional debut album. He does this by first choosing a beat that compliments his cadence and the mood of the song. This may seem beside the point, he is a rapper after all and doesn’t produce any of his music, but the beat choices reflect his self-confidence in his ability to rap. Instead of relying on over-produced instrumentals to prop his music up, Ade raps over beats that are more minimalistic, and focus the attention on what he is saying instead of what is going on in the background.
