Kentucky raised, now Los Angeles based, Purpl Kael blends contemporary R&B sung in lyrical rap cadences with an electronic feel for her latest release, The Real EP. Aptly named, The Real EP aims to attach listeners to the real life themes of making mistakes and not quite yet regretting them.

After announcing that he will be taking off the remainder of this new year to focus on his nonprofit organization Believing In Forever Inc., Devine Carama leaves hip hop heads something to remember him by with “Classic Material”. In a package including nostalgic visuals from Unsung Hero Media, the throwback track from Carama’s latest full length release Believing In Forever was composed by France’s beat maker extraordinaire Cool FD.
“I’ve been around the indie hip hop culture for a decade now, so I often get approached by young MCs asking questions about how to get into hip hop and what their approach should be. When I wrote “Classical Material” I wanted it to serve as an “away message” this year for those young gunners while I take my brief hiatus. This song touches on everything from how to manipulate the mic cord when performing to the integrity each MC should have for the culture coming into the game. Unsung Hero matched matched performance clips perfectly with the lyrics.” – Devine Carama
Highly respected in his home state of Kentucky, as well as very popular on many hip hop sites, Devine Carama uses his new album Believing In Forever as a motivational speech intended to guide aspiring acts.

Devine Carama’s intentions for this album are not about investing in things that are temporary, but rather “believing in forever”.
