Team Rawr | Kelow – “Let It Go”

There may not be a lot of female rappers making it big on the mainstream hip-hop industry, but the indie circuit has a lot of females that are doing their thing. In the past I wrote about one of my favorite female rappers MC Melodee,  but there is another female artist out there that has caught my attention.

Thanks to @teamRAWR on Twitter, they let me know that yet another artist from Baby Dinosaurs & CO. has released a new video. The artist I’m talking about is this dope female rapper named Kelow. If you haven’t heard of Kelow, then you’re missing out on some great music from a rawr-diculously dope indie artist that screams creativity.

Kelow is an upcoming female rapper from Maryland, but she doesn’t just limit herself to rapping. She’s a songwriter, a poet, a painter, and a fusion of eclectic expression that many wish they could be. Kelow is unique, original, beautiful, eccentric, and super talented.

Her debut project Colored Pencils was released by Baby Dinosaurs & CO, and thus far the project has received quite the acclaim. Simply put, it’s good music. High quality production, innovative expression, and abstract thought are what make the album such a success. A lot of the tracks give you a glimpse into different emotions and concepts that Kelow likes to express, but her song “Let It Go” is one that many can relate to.

The video for “Let It Go” just came out the other day and its yet another amazing video shot by BDCO’s creative director Ayinde7. It’s a song that gives Kelow a chance to show off an avant-garde spoken word approach instead of spitting some solid rhymes. It’s unique. Artistic. Refreshing. Bold. It’s Kelow….

Check out the visuals below & be sure to follow her on twitter @SuperKelow  Also download her debut album Colored Pencils here

Team RAWR | Miko Miko Bang! – “Get Back”

RAWR! You already know what time it is. Yes, Baby Dinosaurs & CO. is in the building! Haha, okay not exactly in the building, but they do have some new music that is totally rawr-diculous! Um yeah, I just made up a word. Eh, it’s what I do!

But I digress. The other day @TeamRAWR hit me up on Twitter and let me know that Miko Miko Bang! (President/Music Director BDCO) dropped some fresh Ayinde7 directed visuals for his new single “Get Back.” I had no idea that Miko Miko Bang! was such a talented guy. I hadn’t really checked out his music before because I had been bobbing my head to the tantalizing and fresh lyrics of BDCO’s artist Justin W. You might recall that I did a blog post on his music not too long ago, so be sure to check out that post for more information on Baby Dinosaurs & Co.  and an upcoming rapper/producer Justin W. Click here ————–> BABY DINOSAURS & CO/JUSTIN W.

Miko Miko Bang! has an original vibe to his music, which you’d probably expect from a guy who’s slogan on his tumblr banner is “When I was a kid, I wanted to grow up to be a panda.” It’s original, witty, refreshing, and down-right creative. With his video “Get Back,” Miko Miko Bang! gives us a glimpse the direction his new conceptual album Forever Sasha will take. Conceptual….I like that.

His video “Get Back” isn’t really rapping or singing, more like this avant-garde spoken word of pain, frustration, and attempting to move on from a woman who just did him wrong. Then everyone tells him he needs to “get back” but his “mind is too far” and he can “never get back.” He’s just brushing the dirt off his shoulders and moving forward. No need to dwell on the past. Miko Miko Bang! clearly expresses that with his line “Baby, I’m fine I’m fine, I’m good. I’m leaving these hoes right where I should.”  How much more clear can you get? Miko Miko Bang! is telling it like it is!

I’m really feeling this song. It’s refreshing, abstract, and the video is yet another stunning visual shot by creative director Ayinde7. He’s really been producing some quality visuals to go with such great music. I’m glad that he’s apart of Team Rawr and the Baby Dinosaurs & Co. camp.

So please be sure to support this DMV record label and help put these artists on the map. Peep the visuals below and be sure to check out the official site for BDCO.
