Tru Life Drops First Project In 11 Years With 'Walking On Water'

The project includes features from Rick Ross, T.I. Future, Tory Lanez and more.

Last week (Nov. 9), Tru Life dropped his first project in 11 years with Walking On Water via Mogul Tree/EMPIRE.

Boasting Tru's renewed energy and unparalleled tenacity, Walking on Water runs at a modest 37 minutes. Lead by singles "Baddie" and "Cause I Can," the 11-track album features cuts from hip-hop's new school including Don Q, Tory Lanez and Dave East, while also featuring verses from heavy-hitters like Rick RossT.I. and Future.

A well-known talent in NYC rap circles, Tru Life is deeply connected to the rap game. Signing to Jimmy Iovine’s Interscope Records as a teenager, Tru later caught the attention of Jay Z before signing to Roc-A-Fella and sharing his 2007 mixtape Tru York.

Born Roberto Guzmán Rosado, Jr., Tru Life was sentenced to eight years for a fatal stabbing in 2011. He was released in 2016 after serving five years of his sentence. Taking some time to adapt to his freedom, make up for lost time with his wife and kids and study the changes the rap game has gone through over the last decade, Tru Life is back and here to stay with Walking On Water.

Aaron Aye Delivers Bop-Worthy Truths On New LP, 'F.E.A.R."

Some artists love to boast about their bars and nayhoos, but Aaron Aye truly has it all. The singer and rapper blend both talents with easy on his LP F.E.A.R.

F.E.A.R. which stands for "False Evidence Appearing Real," sees Aye get personal in his lyrics. In lead single"Roots," the artist highlights loss in many ways. From losing his mother to cancer and losing hope in his dreams, Aye gives out plenty of motivational vitamins to make it past your worries.

It's a recurring theme on F.E.A.R., which isn't a downer at all. Songs like "Over My Head" hand out valuable lessons while providing a groove only the 23-year-old can deliver. He's been compared to A-List talent like J. Cole and Drake for his honest storytelling, a factor that drifts in and out of popular music way too often.

With F.E.A.R., Aye speaks of peace and the importance of faith. Through the LP fans can hear how the L.A. artist overcame grief, depression and anxiety while building a positive sonic forcefield.

Make sure to give Aaron Aye a listen, he's more than worth it.

Listen To An Unheard J Dilla Production On Common's "HER Love"

Grammy Award-winning rapper and entertainer, Common, has dropped his new single and music video entitled "HER Love," featuring Daniel Caesar with a special appearance from Dwele. The track also features an unreleased beat from the late J Dilla. 

"HER Love" has a signature beat from J Dilla and a soulful hook from Caesar. Common delivers a story that is dedicated to hip-hop, much like his 1994 classic “I Used to Love H.E.R.” Before his untimely passing, Dilla and Common worked on a vast amount of the rapper's music, including the albums Like Water For Chocolate, Electric Circus and Finding Forever cuts "Southside" with Kanye West and "So Far to Go" with D'Angelo.

"HER Story" plays out like a State of the Rap Union as he addresses the rise and expansion of hip-hop throughout the past 25 years while highlighting his own journey.

"At 21, you knew I was savage/ But you said, "Common, you will never be average "/It's a cold world, we need JAY/If you could dot com, you could dot K." The rapper pays homage to some of the hip-hop's current artists and goes also to pay respects to YG, Gucci Mane, Meek Mill, A$AP Rocky, among others.

Director of the cinematic visual, Savanah Leaf introduces her thought-provoking perspective. Leaf has partnered with an extensive list of elite clients including Roc Nation, Sony Music Group, Nike, Adidas and Capitol Records.

The music video was screened at The Annenberg Space for Photography in association with "CONTACT HIGH: A Visual History of Hip-Hop" an exhibit on display in Los Angeles.

"HER Story" is the single from his forthcoming album Let Love Have the Last Word. 

Reflecting on his music, the artist tells VIBE, “I love music so much. And on Let Love, this recommitting, rebirth and 're love,’ if that’s a word, just came to fruition. Music has always been the genesis of my creative life and it feels more than fulfilling more than wonderful, and a joy that is hard to wrap up, to be giving my whole self to it again.”
