This week’s review is a double hitter. Artist Smoove Boy Jay released the video for his “Chill Bill Remix” this past April and was also featured in Severe Jones’ “Feel So Right” video.
So let’s start with the “Chill Bill Remix” which is actually a freestyle to Rob $tone’s “Chill Bill” from summer 2015. The video starts with a slide of the first amendment, pretty cool I guess, I’m not completely sure what it had to do with the video exactly. But I’m all about getting a message across so cool! The video continues with Smoove Boy Jay in a park….and that’s about it! Not much to really say, the video quality was good. There were points in the video where I thought I was watching one of those old Kung Fu movies since the vocals didn’t match the video when he was mouthing the words. But then again what do you really want in a video for a freestyle. Not the best but definitely not the worst.
The second video with Severe Jones looked like the duo was having a lot of fun. The good vibes and chemistry between these two artist is what gives this video it’s entertainment value. However like the first video there was only one scene. I think the video could have had more locations or even some WOMEN!!! I mean…judging by the title I just really expected to see some women… Ok ok, we all know I might just be a little biased with the last request. But seriously, overall a good video just more locations next time guys (and possibly some females).

Welcome to another music video post for New Music Mondays on LyveLyfeRadio.com!!
This week we have a new video by DLE Records artist Jerz Da Don for his track “Follower”. This song is off his new album coming this Summer entitled “S.U.N.” Having only been out a month, this video has almost 6k views on Youtube. I had already watched it as I knew Jerz before we even started this radio show. So when I received the link in my inbox, I knew we had to put it on the list!
The video has an aggressive tone to it. Makes sense being that it’s basically calling out people who follow the wave rather than create it. Jerz commences to throw a few bricks at what I hope is an abandoned building as well as flipping chairs and kicking over stuff throughout the video. I think filming in the snow was a great asset because it makes the visual cold and blunt to add to that aggression. Even with the awesome production quality of the song, the beat makes you feel like you’re watching a suspense driven King-Kong movie! I also love the way he threw in racism and the perception of our people into his lyrics. I try to keep these reviews solely in reference to the visual product but the hook and that verse caught me. It’s always inspiring when artists take the time out to create a piece that is engaging and can still remember to throw in topics of viral importance. Kudos to you for that!
As I watched the video, I couldn’t help but to laugh. You’ll see a few cameos of individuals who are apart of the DLE team in varying aspects. Danny Love, CEO of DLE Films (director of the video) & DLE Records, was seen throughout the entire video flashing his jewelry and DLE apparel! As I’m very big on branding, I was excited to see all the merch featured. It was almost as if he was a feature on the song that never got to record his part but was still in the video… I do find it to be a lot when management plays too large of a role in the artists video but being that I know they’re like brothers, it wasn’t as obnoxious as I’ve seen in other videos. Almost like Diddy in any video of an artist he’s managed!
Overall I give this video a thumbs up as I’ve found it to be entertaining yet vigorous in intent. I urge you to stay tuned with Jerz’s journey. Follow him on IG @JerzDaDon and you can check out the video below. Comment and tell us what you think:

Welcome to “New Music Mondays”! This is LyveLyfeRadio.com’s first recurring segment where Dyme and DJ Blaq Bully will be reviewing underground & independent artists music videos. Doing this one a little late at night but better late than never right?…
Icmg/2 Deep recording artist JR JustReal released a video mid-January to his single “Invisible”. This video was directed by Tony Picaso and produced by Ppmg Hitmand. I’ve seen him around performing at numerous music events around New York City and have become a fan of his sound. So I was definitely excited when I saw JR’s submission for our review. Not only is the artist good, but I’m also a big supporter of the video director (Painted by Picaso) so I already pre-judged the visuals before I watched it, lol.
The basis is a heartfelt song of how he feels invisible to his girlfriend and plans to leave her because she doesn’t give him attention. It gives me an early 2000s RnB feel, think Bobby Valentino or Sammie. It starts with JR and his “girlfriend” having a disagreement about her going out with her friends rather than spending time with him when he returns from the studio. She mentions that doing music doesn’t bring home a check. Rude! Then the video is mainly scenes of her on her phone when they are together in the room, her getting cozy with a guy in the hallway, and of JR outside singing his heart out. The video is actually very simple, not too much content, not too many scenes and very easy to digest as the viewer.
What would I change about it? Don’t really think I’d change anything. I think the song is cute. I’m very easily attracted to bright colors and chaotic scenes but this is one of those chill joints you play when you’re breaking up with your boo because they messed up! So it doesn’t call for much more than presented.
Random: So I don’t know if you all caught this but the curtain in the room says Goodnight! Comment below if you saw it!
This is the first single from his LP titled “Reality Check”. Follow @_IamJust_Real on Instagram and Twitter. You can check out the video below. Make sure you tell us your thoughts in the comments section:
