Space Invadaz

Hip-Hop and New Age spirituality may seem like an odd combination, but for the Space Invadaz, rap and the quest for enlightenment go together like Yin and Yang. The Cincinnati, Ohio duo consist of the seasoned vet Donte the GR8 and talented Buggs tha Rocka, two forward-thinking lyricist creating timeless music. The two indigo’s released their debut project titled ‘Contact’ earlier this year, and the philosophical message is golden. Speaking on social injustices and current events as well as topics on corrupted occults and government. All while exploring the concept of opposites: higher and lower self, body and mind, confusion and clarity, peace and war. The first half of ‘Contact’ is the lighter side of the record: mellow in mood and cerebral in subject matter, avoiding empty platitudes by getting autobiographical and letting us know that their own paths to self-discovery and positivity weren’t necessarily straight and narrow. Which ties into the second half, a darker more aggressive tone on the album in which they make clear that they are products of the Cincinnati streets that they were raised in and while their heads are in the clouds they are still very much rooted in the real world. Ultimately Space Invadaz captures balance in their sound by mixing droning bass lines and triplet hi-hats with calm melodic spaciness. Creating music you can relate to as well as turn up. Their high energy tracks are complemented with brash attitude and intricate flows that takes you back to the golden-era of hip hop. Stream this classic below and check out their latest videos for the project as well… as always…
