From start to finish this track is one for “cuffing season”. The sonic sound of the guitar and electric tones glide under Vonte’s lyrics while paying homage to the 90’s classic “Freakin You” by Jodeci. Producer Gold Haze captures the essence of a real “slow jam” and catches the listener off guard with the intense sound that leads to immense pleasure. Prepping for his upcoming mixtape ‘NIGGA! Vonte emphasizes a strong message through his music while gaining the hearts of the ladies with this single. Follow him on social media @Vontebomaye to keep up to date with all of his current moves.
This morning Savage Squad Records CEO and former GBE affiliate, Fredo Santana died at the tender age of 27 years old. Reports state the cause of death was due to kidney failure. Today the city of Chicago and those abroad mourn the loss of a staple to the drill music scene.
Current events show how detrimental drug use has been to some of Hip-Hop’s younger stars. Back in 2015, the culture took a major lost when ASAP Yams at the age of 26 was reported dead due to a drug overdose. It was said that he possibly died due to a mixture of codeine and Xanax. As time fast forwards, rapper Lil Peep at age 21 was reported dead in November 2017, due to a Xanax overdose.
Addiction to prescription drugs are at an all time high. The addiction comes with a heavy price… your life. It’s truly upsetting to witness as it’s taking the young away before they truly are able to make their mark.
Luckily, the addiction crisis isn’t going unnoticed. Some rappers have vowed to quit cold turkey to ensure their survival. California rapper Hell Gang Mozzy has decided to kick the cup and bring awareness to the epidemic.
The greatest hope is that more artist will follow the way of those like Mozzy. It’s understood that this isn’t a easy battle. But, health is wealth and you have to be here in order to count it!
For those of you who maybe dealing with addiction take advantage of the drug abuse hotlines 1-877-733-2138 so that you can receive the proper help you need.
With great sorrow and a sadden heart we here at KMThinks.com sends prayers and condolences to the family and friends of Fredo Santana. The city cries for you today.

Couple months ago I wrote an article on how great I thought the song was and now Omarion has dropped a visual. Although I love the song the video isn’t all that amazing. It’s fairly simple with black and white back drops, a model, Lamborghini, and paint. I guess its suppose to be artistic in a sense… not sure. Of course its a lot of dancing. Both Omarion and Chris Brown are dancing the whole time while Jhene Aiko seems to just kind of be chilling doing a little something but nothing noticeable. I used the word exclusive in the title because for whatever reason you can’t find the song on YouTube using the regular search engine. So thank me later and enjoy.
This past weekend I was invited out to Castro’s listening session at Classick Studios for his new mixtape “Welcome Home” hosted by DJ Honorz and DJ Wats. Castro brought the city out! All in support of the new mixtape. Some of your favorite Chicago artist and executives were in the building. Hustle Simmons hosted the event and the night was organized by SWANK PR. Castro played eight of his sixteen songs on “Welcome Home”, two were standouts for me. “Mackin” and “Me N My Money.” Both completely different songs. Castro showed a bit of his versatility on the tape. Its drill but he switched his sound up on certain tracks. “Mackin” for example takes on a dirty south purple sprite feel; while “Me N My Money” is all about the turn up and flexing. Both great songs in my book. Just look out for those two tracks once he drops the tape.. I guarantee you’ll agree. “Welcome Home” is honestly well rounded tape. Castro does his thing. He holds both the city and eastside down. KMSupports! Make sure you download “Welcome Home” dropping tomorrow on livemixtapes.com at 4pm!
