Cold Vision, the convergence of Miami-based emcee Cold Medina and young super producer Original Vision present “Cantaloupe & Rum”, a sonically lush affair, chronicling the journey of two displaced Latinos attempting to balance pleasure and pain while navigating the heartlands of America. Diverse in both sound and subject matter, the project is sure to engage listeners with dynamic lyricism and spacey, boom-bap inspired production.
To all my Droids, the Q.U.E.E.N Janelle Monae’s sophomore album “The Electric Lady” set to debut September 10 is currently available for early streaming via VH1. A continuation of her alienated majesty is elaborated on this mechanically groovy album which features collaborations from greats such as mama herself Erykah Badu, Solange, Prince, Miguel and Esperanza Spalding. This talented and peculiar young lady deserves a listen.
