Chicago bred music producer, Lord Haiti, coined the term “VIBE” and incorporates that euphoric feel into his music. The up-and-coming producer is making his mark in the world of Indie music, with major influences from J Dilla, The Neptunes, Timbaland and Madlib, which helps increase his desire to perfect his craft. Lord Haiti’s music style consists of multiple genres that include hip-hop, R&B, house, EDM and chill-wave, which all can be heard on his debut project “On My Soul”.

“On My Soul” can be described as a base-heavy, melodic project with a chill and mellow state of mind. The project focuses on helping an individual vibe along to the tunes, getting lost into the euphoric, and sometimes spiritual feeling, through all the different sample cuts. The “On My Soul” 8 track EP is very cohesive, telling a story that can be interpreted several ways by the listener. The project features samples from iconic platforms from our childhood, such as the diary theme from popular TV sitcom “Moesha,” Nina Simone’s “Here Comes The Sun,” Aaliyah’s “Never Coming Back” and more. Freddie Old Soul, King Butch, Schenay Mosley, Edgar Rios, Michael Penny and UCOBY are just a few mentions of artists Lord Haiti worked with to make this project possible.

With a vast library of work on his previous EP, "Paradise” which debuted in 2013, Lord Haiti remains in the music scene, releasing singles like “Sirius,” “Don’t Wake Me Up,” and “It’s Alright” featuring Nina Simone that has been fueling up the anticipation of “On My Soul” project with exciting distinct sound. Major media outlets such as Thisis50, The FLVR,Toronto's #1 urban radio show, "The Masterplan Show", and amongst others are recognizing Lord Haiti’s efforts. With continued growth, mastered skills and experience, Lord Haiti's possibilities are endless.

"OMS" will be available for download on Soundcloud and CD Baby.

Joe Budden Goes In On Drake

Joe Budden Takes Aim At Drake With “Making A Murderer” (Part One) & Releases First Single, “ Flex,” With araabMUZIK featuring Fabolous & Tory Lanez From Their Forthcoming Collaborative Album ‘Rage & The Machine’
Pitchfork Premiere
If you’re reading this it’s too late….  On the May 4th, 2016 episode of his I’ll Name This Podcast Later, Joe Budden said the following about Drake’s latest release Views. “I think that kid on that album (Views) that I heard sounds real fuc*ing uninspired. That’s what I think.  I think that the music is real good.  You can’t fool a real ni*ga.  That music sounds good and I enjoyed it.  40, you sound amazing, 40 continues to progress.  Drake, you do not.”  Further, in a follow-up post to clarify, Joe explained that he didn’t think the subject matter between So Far Gone and Views has differed very much and wondered why Drake now sounds so unenthusiastic about achieving all the goals he envisioned upon arriving on the music scene.
In context, Joe’s comments took place during an open conversation amongst friends and fans, one where he gave an honest appraisal of Drake’s latest work; but like most things Joe does or says, his comments ended up becoming a trending topic on twitter.
Perhaps, coupled with Joe's rather innocuous (and still complimentary) comments about Views and the less than stellar critical reception the project received struck a nerve in the 6 God? That said, it’s still quite a bit of hubris over a comment made on a Podcast.  Drake went Platinum in one weekwhy is he so in his feelings and so distracted by Joe Budden?  Please allow us to elaborate….
Throughout the course of his career, Drake has made many references to “Energy.” “Energy” is a living organism, a live wire, ever present.  At some point, we are all held accountable for our actions and the energy we put out into the world.  In laymen’s terms, there are levels to this shit.  A pecking order if you will. And in that quest to be ordained, someone who was once considered a friend becomes foe and tension (real or otherwise) always permeates.
Joe Budden believes in energy.  His energy is just different.  Joe gets enough attention; he is not looking for it; and certainly not from Drake.  This “beef” started in the 6 and now we here. While the industry seems to lack and hold Drake accountable for his energy---Joe Budden embraces the challenge! 
Lots of different views, this is Joe Budden’s.  You can thank him now, or you can thank him later. 
In conjunction with “Making A Murderer” (Part One), Joe & araab also premiered the first single, “Flex,” f/ Fabolous & Tory Lanez from their forthcoming Rage & The Machine collaborative project with Pitchfork as well.
