Migrate Music Review: Truth – Troubled

Download: Truth – Troubled

The other day we got a submission from a native rapper from Ohio. Truth be told (pun intended) I thought I was gonna hear some corny guy with a non existent flow. Instead what I heard, was unsigned gold! I have listened to many albums this year from rappers with multi million dollar contracts who don’t have the flow, style, or even ability to stay on topic for an entire song. Truth has all three of these things and more. The only thing he is missing is the millions of dollars.
It saddens me when I hear someone good enough to make it in the business but has had no chances, or has been turned down quicker then you can blink your eyes! Truth brings a certain street style that is widely accepted in hip hop. His rhymes are uplifting and have meaning. The samples in his songs are great to hear and accompany his style and voice perfectly.
In his song “Troubled” he talks about his everyday life. Not everyone can relate to one person’s life or upbringing. So Truth takes it a step further when he brings up issues effecting everyday life for people all across America. Such as homes being foreclosed, gas prices rising, and people with a promise of getting a job when they graduate college with a degree, NOT being able to get a job in this time of recession. I’ve already listened to “Troubled” a good ten times, it’s quite catchy.
So my conclusion of “Truth.” Well I can respectfully say the guy has talent. He flows to the beat flawlessly, talks about stuff people can relate too, and most importantly he has the skill to come up in the game. If you asked me if I could see Truth on MTV or on the radio, I would most definitely have to say yes. Take a listen and see what I mean. After only listening to three songs, he has popped up on my radar and I will be watching for his next moves.
Below is a link to his sound cloud, youtube, twitter, and facebook. On his sound cloud he has two other songs named “Fall For You”  and “Got It Made.” Both I might add are just as good as “Troubled.” Fans of hip hop, rejoice because Truth is real, and a future up-and-comer! You heard it here first from Migrate Music!

Listen: Nasty – “Letter To Myself”

So I bet most of you haven’t heard of Nasty. Well that’s why Migrate Music is here. What would you do without us?! Seriously though… Nasty is an underground rapper who is extremely overlooked because of his voice. He sounds almost identical to a guy named Marshall Mathers aka Eminem! Now Nasty has said probably hundreds of times that he feels cursed because of how close his voice resembles Eminem’s and he can’t get any attention from record labels because of it. I do feel bad for him because the guy can flow, rhyme, and make concepts.  This guy can do it all. He is a great MC that will most likely be over looked his entire career.

Here is a song below just showcasing some of his skills. Hopefully Migrate Music can help get him some new fans.

We told you…he sounds like Eminem.
