Rapper Bryce the Third releases LP album ‘Internal Revenue’

The rapper and producer of hip hop known as Bryce the Third has released his new full-length album, “Internal Revenue.” It contains 14 tracks for an approximate total listening time of 45 minutes. It has been proudly published as an independent release without the involvement of the corporate music industry. Clever, relevant, and bringing more rat-a-tat than the Fourth of July, “Internal Revenue” by Bryce the Third demands hip hop fans sit up and take notice of this surprise MC out of MI.

Bryce the Third hails from Inkster, Michigan. He cites as main artistic influences Eminem, the Notorious B.I.G., Beanie Sigel, Jadakiss, Lil Wayne, Jay-Z, Kendrick Lamar, J.Cole, Andre 3000, Killer Mike, and Kanye West. His own style takes the solid-state basics of the old-school sound and embellishes them with contemporary elements for a blend which will appeal to hip hop fans from every walk.

But perhaps most importantly, Bryce the Third’s songs narrate nonfiction.

Speaking for himself of his influences, Bryce says, “Just experiences. Things that I’ve been through personally or have seen.”

The integral nature of this in his songs cannot be overstated. He writes music about the conditions in which people live today, the trials they overcome, and the tribulations by which they are overcome. Neither are these fantastic “tales from the ghetto” listeners may find hard to understand. Bryce talks of difficulty getting out of bed with depression, constant media noise that one is bred to failure, the white-knuckle reality that there’s only one grim alternative to holding on.

“First and foremost it’s quality music,” writes Bryce the Third, “that’s most important. Secondly, you know, I’m just hoping that people hear ‘Internal Revenue’ and learn to be okay with who they are. If the listener hasn’t started the journey of looking in the mirror and accepting that person looking back, I hope that this tape can be somewhat of a push for them to start considering these ideas.”

Ultimately, “Internal Revenue” by Bryce the Third is hip hop which poses the argument plainly illustrated on its album cover: what’s outside might not satisfy, and what’s inside might be neglected.

“There’s more to life than the external sh-t,” Bryce says. “Maybe I can introduce the concept of an inner drive to someone who doesn’t know what that is.”

“Internal Revenue” by Bryce the Third is available from SoundCloud and over 600 quality digital music stores online worldwide now (links provided below). Get in early. Very early.

Rappers Counterfeit Money Machine release new LP ‘Desperate Measures’

The hip-hop crew known as Counterfeit Money Machine have released their new LP “Desperate Measures.” The album contains 12 original tracks for an approximate total listening time of 40 minutes. It has been published on the Grasshopper Juice Records independent music label without the influence or financial support of the corporate music industry. Funky, full of lyrical gymnastics and even socially conscientious, “Desperate Measures” by Counterfeit Money Machine is a hip-hop album that belongs in every rap lover’s play list.

Counterfeit Money Machine are typically billed as an alternative hip-hop group. They have cited as artistic influences Run The Jewels, the Mars Volta, and Anticon. Similarities to artists like Atmosphere, P.O.S., Toki Wright, Aesop Rock, and Busdriver can also be drawn. Fans of these progressive hip-hop favorites are likely to be enthusiastic about “Desperate Measures” for its wide stylistic variation and colorful sonic creativity. Solid, bass-driven back beats, inventive use of samples and catchy melody lines work together to make Counterfeit Money Machine’s latest LP their greatest album to date.

Fans of lyric geniuses such as Tupac Shakur, Eminem, and Kendrick Lamar also have much to look forward to in this most recent CMM release. The album is chock-full of social commentary, all of it well-informed, well-intended and amusingly satirical. Hip-hop listeners looking for another bling-polishing gang endorsement disguised as art will need to look elsewhere.

Counterfeit Money Machine are based in the Cincinnati area’s thriving hip-hop underground. They are brothers Andrew (AP) and Bill Doench (Kill Bill), and beat composer DJ Juan Cosby (AKA Cincinnati Entertainment Award-winning artist Nick “Chick Pimp” Mitchell). In addition to the considerable talents of CMM, “Desperate Measures” also features appearances by popular rappers MC Longshot and Rick Chyme.

Counterfeit Money Machine have performed with renowned progressive-rap artists like Sage Francis, Sole, Busdriver, Milo, Clipping, F. Virtue, MegaRan, and others. 2015 alone saw them performing at such festivals as Three-Points in Louisville, KY, and Adjust Your Eyes and Midpoint Music Festival in their hometown of Cincinnati, OH. In addition to frequent shows in Cincinnati, they regularly appear in Brooklyn, NY, Nashville, TN, South Bend, IN, Newport, KY, and have played their vivid, Beastie-esque live act in Grand Rapids, MI, Lexington, KY, Clarksville, TN, and Philadelphia, PA, with many more locations to come.

“Desperate Measures” by Counterfeit Money Machine is available online worldwide beginning 6 November 2015. Get in early, hip hop fans. Very early.
