Juggernaut War Party

JUGGERNAUT WAR PARTY
Juggernaut War Party

Enter the JUGGERNAUT! Founded by frontman Qaasim Middleton (American Idol, Naked Brothers Band and HBO’s Music In Me), Juggernaut War Party is quite a collective, consisting of Qaasim, (lead vocals, guitar), his brother Khalil (vocals, MPC), lead guitarists Jonah Hudson, Emmet Sher and Joseph Deadwiley, drummer Andres Valbuena, keyboardists Jack Gruber and Francisco Haye, with Ethan Cohn and Paul Johnson on bass.

Juggernaut War Party

You may remember Qaasim from his awesome run on American Idol Season 14, when he performed with Chris Brown and Pitbull and was lavished with praise from J-Lo, Harry Connick Jr. & Keith Urban. Since his amazing run on Idol, where he finished in the Top 8,  Qaasim has been quietly developing his material, working on his debut album with his Hip Hop/Funk/Rock fusion band Qaasim & the Juggernaut War Party: Children of The Plague (“Juggernaut War Party” or “JWP” for short).

Juggernaut War Party

The Juggernaut War Party concept was birthed at AFROPUNK BATTLE OF THE BANDS BROOKLYN, on June 22nd, 2015, when Qaasim and his bandmates entered the contest to showcase their skills and original Rock/Rap/Funk fusion material. They did extremely well for a brand new group, making it to the very end, eliminated only in the Finals. It was debatable, but all of the groups rocked out that year, so the band chalked it up to an awesome debut experience.

Juggernaut War Party

Right after that, Qaasim did his last show on the American Idol Tour at the Beacon Theater August 5th, 2015, then become a free agent. Since then he has been in the studio with the band, recording and polishing their sound for their debut release. Juggernaut did their second show, October 10th, 2015, opening for Rakim and Corey Glover at the RESTORATION ROCKS MUSIC FESTIVAL.

Juggernaut War Party

This year, Qaasim & The Juggernaut War Party are back with a vengeance! They entered the AFROPUNK BROOKLYN BATTLE once again and performed such a striking, memorable set, that even though another band was eventually voted the winner, the judges gave JWP 2nd Place and decided that this year the top TWO bands were going to go through, to perform at Afropunk Brooklyn 2016! They couldn’t front on the War Party and wanted to bring their amazing sound (and fanbase) to the Afropunk festival. Juggernaut truly is the unstoppable force!

Juggernaut War Party

Come out to watch Qaasim & The Juggernaut War Party tear down the stage August 27th on the Green Stage, from 1:45 – 2:15pm at the AFROPUNK BROOKLYN FESTIVAL 2016, sharing the stage with artists such as Jonelle Monae, Cee-lo Green, TV on the Radio, George Clinton, Ice Cube, Flying Lotus, Saul Williams, Tyler the Creator, Earl Sweatshirt, plus members of Bad Brains, Fishbone, and Living Colour, just to name a few! It is going to be lit!

JOIN THE PARTY! Link up with Qaasim & JWP on all social media.

maticulous – “That Ain’t U” ft Rock (Heltah Skeltah) & Guilty Simpson


rockness monstahThis collabo from maticulous – “That Ain’t U” ft Rock (Heltah Skeltah) & Guilty Simpson, takes shots at all the phonys, posers and BS artists who claim everything in their music that they do not do, women they do not date, things they do not have and just are straight up not being real. It is the 4th track from maticulous‘ full length album, The maticulous LP, abailable now on iTunes, CD & Cassette.

 

You just gon’ stand there, hollerin’ bout ya guns and ya thugs and ya drugs? (THAT AIN’T U!)
Oh, you gon’ ball til you fall, cause ya money stack tall, you the Don, n*gga? (THAT AINT U!)
You smash nothin but model bitches? Does ya wife gotta lotta n*ggas? (THAT AINT U!)
That is not you, and to keep it hunnid, sh*t is NOT cool (THAT AINT U!) – Rockness Monstah

Guilty SimpsonFirst off, ROCKNESS MONSTAH opens this song up right from the start with the craziest scheme on his and Guilty’s names. The HELTAH SKELTAH / Duck Down veteran straight SPAZZES on this joint!! And then bodies the hook too! GUILTY starts off in a similar vein, flipping the name Rock, as Rock did with his name. His flow is less aggressive, more of a laid back disdain for fakers and frauds. Guilty’s verse is straight fire.

This music has an East Coast flavor (maticulous if from PA). With Rock from NY and Guilty from Detroit, this is the sound that some people complain is missing in Hip Hop lately, being oversaturated with southern trap music. If you are one of those people, then this is earcandy you will be bumpin’ in your whip, your face crunched up because of the beat, but smiling at the same time because you are loving it. Support that so we get more of it. You wont be sorry.
