about

Contraband Mixtape is a collection of 12 songs that feel like a full length concept album: with its unifying themes of raw emotion, plagued by social ills, haunted by love gone, and 2 timely interludes, it is able to cover a range of topics without losing continuity or the listener’s ear. From the first single “ Hand Ova Fist” a pounding track (borrowed from Brenk Sinatra’s “Tryin”) with a lyrical tale about being on the run from the police, to “DREAMS” (prod. by DJ D Sharp) dub reggae infused anthem of achieving one’s aspirations against all odds. While “All These Guns” (prod. by Woodstock) features guest appearances by Stic.man (DeadPrez), Bicasso (Living Legends) and Do D.A.T. is a powerful Gil Scott-Heron inspired track about police brutality, and the struggles that confront the Black community. Contraband Mixtape journeys further to celebrate a new day on one track, to asking provocative questions on the next. Its ultimate strength, however, is its ability to be relevant to current events, and remain entertaining all at once. sOuL from the O’s Contraband Mixtape is available now for free download for a limited time. Take a listen!

sOuL from the O Oakland, California

Nobody gave sOuL permission to make his brand of hip-hop, and he likes it this way. Sometimes eclectic, sometimes fierce, pounding on the doors of the establishment, sOuL has been on a collision course for expanding the boundaries of Hip-Hop music. The Unspoken Word is his latest opus grandeur, a 7 track EP album succeeds in being as outwardly political as it is introspective and futuristic. ... more

Track Name: Hand Ova Fist
Trees over bushes over fences as a I crawl
Splash through the puddles just to throw off all the dogs
Beads of sweat to my neck lungs hurtin from that Indo
I jump up in the bucket dip below the window
Twist the green and red hear the footsteps near
Burn the starter give it gas, first and second third gear
Break the column as I whip it I get away the best
Broke parole stolen car, resist arrest
It’s just another day in the life that they created
Then to villainize, justify why they hate it…
Them cats coming fast how we gonna make it: Hand over hand fist over fist/ Footsteps in the dark how we gonna take it: Hand over hand fist over fist
