This is cool, it kinda reminds me of a Drake song, but I like. The production is VERY tight! I appreciate this dudes sentiment. Here is What Kenton had to say about the song:
“In celebration of 100,000 downloads of Creative Destruction 2 in just over a month, I wanted to release a free track for the fans before we fly to L.A. to shoot the “Firestarter” video. The internet is the proving to be the most powerful tool for upcoming artists like myself. You can really see the world and when that world is moved by your art…it’s an amazing feeling. So I based the song partially from that but also wanted to release one for those of us who are not only ambitious, but actually act on it and eventually succeed. Once you achieve your goal, don’t look back…don’t come down! That’s the whole theme of “Top of the World”. I was moved by the infectious Passion Pit track called “The Reeling” and eventually used a sample from it as the base. I chopped it up and just built from there with syncopated drum sequences, 808s, raw lyrics and vocal layers. I finished it, I took a ride to it with the windows down and it felt just how I wanted it to…so I wanted to drop it! Thank you to all the supporters for downloading, hosting and sharing Creative Destruction 2.”
New joint from my homie, Leann Grimes! I like this, he sampled “The Great Deal of Love” by Favourite Sons for this joint! I went back to listen to “The Great Deal of Love,” he did a great job of making it fresh, he made it his own. Good Shit!
“Lie Down In Darkness” was directed by Luke Seomore and Joseph Bull (Institute for Eyes) and shot in London last month and is influenced by the life of Russian astronaut Yuri Gagarin.

This is interesting. It’s crazy, as a Jay-Z fan I’m actually at the point where I’d rather hear him talk in interviews as opposed to hear him rap. He doesn’t quite speak about things like this in his music thus, making him a little limited for me now as I get older. He touches briefly on things, but doesn’t dig deep. I guess he thinks it wont sell, I dont know. But this interview shows a deeper side. A side that reminds me of me, especially when speaking about his father. I appreciate this, he’s an example of what man is capable of.
“Since their release in 1978, hit albums like Bruce Springsteen’s “Darkness on the Edge of Town,” Billy Joel’s “52nd Street,” the Doobie Brothers’ “Minute by Minute,” Kenny Rogers’s “Gambler” and Funkadelic’s “One Nation Under a Groove” have generated tens of millions of dollars for record companies. But thanks to a little-noted provision in United States copyright law, those artists — and thousands more — now have the right to reclaim ownership of their recordings, potentially leaving the labels out in the cold.”
So its no secret that record companies have jerked artists in the past, but this is a reminder that as the artist, YOU HAVE RIGHTS! KNOW THEM! OR ITS YOUR FAULT FOR GETTING JERKED!
This guy is a GENIUS!!! LISTEN TO THIS MIX…CRAZY, BANANAS, DOPE, TIGHT, AWESOME, running out of adjectives here…JUST LISTEN. I’m curious, listen to the last one he sent me HERE. Now which do you like better?
I like this track right here. I like the hook on this a lot, its real catchy! I’ve never heard of him, but he’s got talent!
6FO. Representing New Jersey with an East Coast grind that is unprecedented, up and coming artist 6FO is making waves across the Internet and the streets of the East Coast. With a sound that innately represents the streets and that show clear influences from The LOX, Fabolous and 50 Cent, 6FO is one of the next big artists to blow on the East Coast.
“That’s my prized possession,” 6FO says of his Dream Catcher project. “To say I put a lot of time and effort into this would be an understatement. I learned so much and I have taken everything that I learned and put it into this project, I think you can hear the progression and I feel like it’s my first time around with the way that I planned it.”
