“NECK & THAT” – Pistola + Froze.40 (Prod. JORD4NEVERDIED + BROKECH1C)

By: Shamus Hill

Both Pistola and Froze.40 are names that have been circulated around the Graduation Music site a large number of times over the course of the last few years. With that being said, we’re thrilled to present the first collaboration between Pistola and Froze.40, a rollercoaster-ride of a song titled “NECK & THAT”.

Building off of the rollercoaster reference, it’s quite literally what listening to this song feels like. Pistola grabs ahold of the hard-hitting JORD4NEVERDIED + BROKECH1C production first, making his presence felt through an addictive, bouncy chorus that’s quickly followed up by SK85!. He helps build the energy until Giuseppe Luv’s explosive verse begins. Froze.40’s tenacious energy has always been an important component of their discography, but the feel provided by this release is unlike any other. No exaggeration, Giuseppe Luv went Super Saiyan on “NECK & THAT”, helping to cement this track as one of the most potent releases out of Boston thus far in 2019.

HUGE props to both JORD4NEVERDIED and BROKECH1C who joined forces to chop up this thunderous instrumental. Their work truly allowed for Pistola, SK85!, and Giuseppe Luv to put their artistry on full display, making “NECK & THAT” the incredible track that it is.

JORD4NEVERDIED ft. Donald Grunge & Connis – “Pedicure”

By: Shamus Hill

JORD4NEVERDIED recently recruited Donald Grunge and Connis to assemble an infectious single titled “Pedicure”.

Both Grunge and Connis float harmoniously atop some dazzling production at the hands of JORD4NEVERDIED, helping to raise the bar for Massachusetts artists in 2019. The duo utilize this track to gift fans a bit of an insight into their mindset as they brace for the coming year. Artists across the state have been building-up their skillsets, however Grunge and Connis remind everyone of just how high-up on the food chain they are.

Donald Grunge closed his 2018 on a high-note, working alongside some of Massachusetts’ best artists and releasing his debut album, Cowboy Talk. Quickly following in his footsteps is Connis, a native of Cambridge, Mass, who’s gearing up to release his new project titled Conn(is) this year. JORD4NEVERDIED worked equally as hard as these two throughout the last year, establishing a name for himself producing for his group, Froze.40, and a long list of others, whilst releasing music of his own. Be sure to pay attention to these three, as they’re showing no signs of slowing down whatsoever. In a nutshell, “Pedicure” is a telltale sign of what’s next to come for JORD4NEVERDIED, Donald Grunge, and Connis.

Donald Grunge – “CowboyTalk”

By: Seamus Fay

From “Guitar Grunge” back in July to “Snake In My Boot” last month and most recently, “Henny Sippa“, 2018 has been a monumental year for Donald Grunge. One release after another, he’s been honing in on his craft, and as a result, we’ve seen some of his most creatively ambitious releases to date in recent months. Needless to say, Grunge is on a win streak right now, and today, he takes all of this energy and puts it toward the release of his long-awaited, highly-anticipated new project, CowboyTalk.

Taking on a Western theme, this tape is eccentric from the cover art all the way to the final seconds of its last song. Grunge pours his heart out into 7 highly-passionate, energetic cuts, leaving it all on the court as he puts forth a noticeably refined version of the “on my own terms” artistry that we’ve grown to love over the years. With production at the hands of local talents including Mike Hector, David Walker, JORD4NEVERDIED, Chris Tophr, Jonny Doobs, Maka, and Humbeats, CowboyTalk picked on a dream team of names to make up its roster, and without a doubt, it paid off. Donald Grunge is here, and he’s here to stay.
