In the wake of the tragedy currently roiling Ferguson, a song like Cory Jreamz’s “Freedom” hits a little harder. Written well before the death of Michael Brown, the Houston native weighs the price of freedom, myriad forms of systemic oppression, the death of Sean Bell and a chant to fuck cops. The fact that it […]
No time more fitting than now to drop “Berlin Blues,” in which Cory Jreamz of Houston exerts full Teutonic Sturm Und Drang. This is probably not the efficient 4/4 house numbers that Thomas Muller and company are currently celebrating with, but Jreamz gets the black and white German Expressionism tones down pat. In this dream, […]

Cory Jreamz, Alive & Well October 3, 2013
Cory Jreamz, the Howling 19-year old Houstonite, returns with “Alive.” This is another one title with a video where Cory threatens to steal your soul with a stare down at the camera. He dreams of being the Black Marlon Brandon and doing Madonna “like Pac in 94.” Clips of Ali-Frazier fights, tendrils of smoke, and […]
