Jochem and Matt of Yulu Toys did a demo of the brand’s wild new game called “Tic Tac Tongue” at Toy Fair NY!! It’s a head to head game where players do battle like they’re chameleons. Already sounds wild right? LOL!! Ok check it…… 2 players put on a chameleon mask over their mouth and blow into it. The mask features a a long tongue that rolls out really fast when you blow into it mimicking a chameleon’s tongue.
The 2 players face off in a game of skill, speed and agility where to win they have to be the first to knock down the target that matches the card turned over by a referee. I had Jochem and Matt do a mini tournament of 3 rounds to find out who the Tic Tac Tongue Champ will be.
I’m loving this game, it looks like a lot of fun 4sho!!

Mahalia “No Pressure” Produced by Maths Time Joy (Dirty)
UK based singer Mahalia released this audible R&B treat called “No Pressure” and we’re loving it! The nicely crafted beat by Maths Time Joy features a mellow guitar driven vibe over a thick boom bap drum kit/pattern. There’s also this haunting vocal chorus, melody, sample that goes throughout the song that’s super addicting.
Mahalia’s vocals complete the track perfectly with her lite, raspy, smooth tone. In the song the singer gets introspective about being in the industry and the so called pressures involved with being an artist. One of the most important things to have when you get in the game and start moving up is to make sure you have a great team behind you. No “yes men” or fake friends but a real, official team that want the best for you and your career. When you have a team like that, the “pressure” can be handled properly 😉 Long story short, this track is FIRE!!
We look forward to seeing some official videos from Mahalia this year!
Mahalia “Proud of Me” feat. Little Simz (Audio)
Uk Singer/songwriter Mahalia released a banging R&B Soul joint called “Proud Of Me”. The beat on this joint is so addictive. It’s a fire Boom Bap, HipHop beat with a soulful chorus vocal sample loop. The sample gets the filtered treatment for the verses in the song then gets unfiltered for the hook. Mahalia’s singing/semi rapping vocals about wanting to making her fam and people’s proud of her artistry flow over the beat perfectly. Emcee, Little Simz comes in with a hot 16 in the bridge. We’re loving this joint and can’t wait to hear more from Mahalia!
Ravyn Lenae “Sticky” Official Music Video
It’s been a minute since we posted some R&B soul music. But we came across this nice tune by Chicago’s own Ravyn Lanae and had to share it with ya’ll! This joint is called “Sticky” and it’s the lead single/music video off her upcoming EP “CRUSH”.
The track is produced by The Internet member Steve Lacy. It has a nice mellow vibe consisting of an electric organ sound, guitar licks, a semi lofi dirty drum kit with a driving pattern and a dope bass line. Ravyn adds the spice to the track with her soulful yet playful style. This one is definitely a repeatable gem for the ears.
The visuals are done by director Weird Life. He created a 70’s inspired theme with Ravyn reminding us of a young disco era Diana Ross.
Ravyn says “Sticky”….
“symbolizes the merry-go-round period of love, where things aren’t quite right but you can’t help sticking around each other.”
Be on the look out for “CRUSH” which drops on January 26th, via Atlantic Records.
