Witt Lowry challenges all of Rap with “Blood in the Water”

It’s not anger, it’s frustration. Make no mistake, the frustration has nothing to do with himself, it’s frustration towards Rap & Hip Hop, the whole game is diluted with a materialistic vision. Witt Lowry exposes the truth and doesn’t want us listeners to fall into the trap of Hip Hop music today, the emptiness in the lyrics, the lack of creativity, and the lack of passion. The vision is hazy, many artists are confused or unaware of why they are making music in the first place. “Blood In The Water” brings all this to light and lets us know his vision is clear, he knows what he must do.

We decided to keep this one short and sweet because Witt Lowry is able to clarify all he’s trying to say in his lyrics. We can’t stress enough how lyrically-inclined this track is and how heavy it’s set with meaning between the lines so pay careful attention.

Avery LR is back with “They Don’t Like That”


Avery LR is back and he’s on a mission to release the his lyrical vengeance on those who don’t quite understand why he does what he does. Thus, “They Don’t Like That” was born and now we have a revelation of going towards the critics, not away. We shouldn’t be running from people who criticize, in fact, they are our biggest fans and our biggest supporters, deep down. They are a constant reminder that we should always be growing and always going for more, never satisfied with what’s in front of us.

This is what we got out of “They Don’t Like That” because not everyone will like what you do but you do it out of love and out of human nature to serve. We serve through our message on each blog post, and each artists we choose to feature because we want to get the word out there that we a strange freaking group that does what we want, and people might not like it. We support Avery LR 100% and we want him to continue to do what other people may not like because in the end, it’s what we in ourselves think that matters.

Be sure to give “They Don’t Like That” a listen and truly pay attention to the message that Avery LR is trying to portray on you. After, truly criticize it and see if it’s for you. The decision is yours for the making.

L.O.V.E. Culture puts Jacksonville on the map with their new album, “Fluidity”.

We love collaborations. Many of the epic tracks and albums we love usually have been products of collaborations. Look at what legendary collaborations have done for people like DJ Khaled, French Montana, etc. Here’s one fine example that should fully support my claim: “We Takin’ Over” launched DJ Khaled’s career into super-stardom and it cemented the careers of Lil’ Wayne, Rick Ross, T.I., Akon, Fat Joe and Birdman as the rappers who were “it” in the mid to late 2000’s.
