"Durty World" by Durty Flow (Album Review)

Savannah, Georgia rapper Durty Flow is not your typical Hip Hop artist. His latest album Durty Worldis already making noise on the internet with tracks like “Okay Nah” and “On Me”. The Pioneer Records artist is not only putting on for Savannah, Georgia, but he is representing for the Durty South on a whole new level. The 12-cut LP comes with very few features like Nae B, who appeared on “Cali Swag” and Norman Vincent who featured on “Us  17”, the last track on the album. Durty Flow is definitely worth checking out! And here is why…



The first track on the compilation “The Jonzes” delivers that raw Georgia-style southern Hip Hop flow that we all love. “You Don’t WannaKnow” is that track you’d probably hear on your local radio station. It has a good radio-ready sound that is perfect for the mainstream. His song “Bring the Cops Out” is one of those bangers that puts your car stereo system to the test. One of those songs you bump loud with the windows up as you cruise through the neighborho…

How Pasadena ignores it's true essence...

The City of Pasadena is a world-renowned town with a lot to it. It's a big small town with it's own attractions, politics, and it's own money. For the past 7 years, The City of Pasadena has been ignoring the cause of it's native local artists. And the community is starting to take notice.
