So St. Louis' own Smino linked up with Tallahassee Pain for a remix to the stand out record of his blkswn project. Peep the visuals!
Young M.A seemed to have disappeared from the mainstream for a little following the success of her smash single "OOUUUU". She's back setting the record straight about her young status in the game. She's barring alot of these dudes down, I must be honest. Enjoy!
With a mix of Juvenile flows and a south Florida story to tell, Miami's Bruno Mali takes it back with the classic "Ha". This track goes and you're sleep if you haven't put it in your playlist. Enjoy!
Interesting story about my time enjoying Chicago native, Supa Bwe. The first song that hooked me was "Toni Braxton" back in 2015 (unfortunately not on Soundcloud anymore). Something about the riff in the hook's vocals reminded me of old rock tunes from the 90s that I felt weird for listening to and even knowing. That song caused me to listen to The Dead Occasion where I found other faves like "Contacts". In the time since, I've watched Supa take the necessary steps to garner the attention needed to his career to the next level.
Here he is with the first visuals from his upcoming project, Finally Dead (available for pre-order) called "I Hate Being Alive" directed by Cole Bennett of Lyrical Lemonade. Too dope to ignore I promise.
Sidenote: Over time, I've come to realize that the sound of Supa that hooked me has can be now found in some of the most popular acts out now. Did he inspire these people? Is Supa a pioneer in this new age rock-inspired emo-rap? I could honestly say I heard him doing it before most.
Throwbyk of me enjoying "Toni Braxton" lol
"What's power? Strength. To give life. To take it. To heal it." - Rapsody
Rapsody is the best female rapper in the game, with her gender being no part of her skill, in my opinion. She raps with some of the best MC's in the game and always stands her own. For this track, she brings TDE's Kendrick Lamar and Lance Skiiiwalker along for the ride. Though Kung Fu Kenny isn't featured in the video, the message still flows through.
"Power begins from within. Power is in all of us. Power lies within you." - 9th Wonder
This video is as hype as the song makes me. I'm about a year into enjoying Rich The Kid's flow switches and Kendrick comes through to deliver as always. The video is very energetic and the colors are vibrant. Wait until you see this dude Rich whip lordt. Also, watch for the chopstick Millie Rock. Too lit. Enjoy!
Not only the intro to Thug's latest album Beautiful Thugger Girls, but one of my top two favorites of the project. Thug caught everyone off guard with the country singing album he had proposed to us, but I can honestly admit I dig the sound. This track, featuring upcoming UK artist Millie Go Lightly, has it's own original kind of vibe and the visuals are proving Thug to be raising his bar on music videos. Proud to see the growth in one of my favorite artists. Enjoy!
West Orlando's Otown Marco has been on his rise for some time now. I personally caught on to his music earlier last year with his song "Money Man". Here's his newest visual release, Motions. The feel of the video caught me right at the beginning during the title sequence and the hypnotic vibes of the track mellows you out throughout the rest. Enjoy!
Much love and appreciation to the fam over at Creative Misfits for the CVNCER EP review. I'd say their analysis was pretty spot on from the flow of the tracks to their meanings to pointing out punchlines. If you want to understand my music a little better, this would be a great place to look. Enjoy!
Still haven't heard the full album, but this has been my favorite track since it dropped. Visuals are always a nice touch. Enjoy!
XXX is a very controversial figure in Hip-Hop in 2017 from arrests and accusations to calling out the top dog in the game at the time, Drake, to being involved in multiple stage fights. All the while, I still see the guy putting effort towards relaying a message to his fellow youth rather it be in his strange XXL Freshman freestyle or in his new video for his breakout hit "Look at Me!".
This video features multiple hangings depicting factual events of American History as well as a controversy tugging depicting a white child being hung. I can see the message behind this, can you? Check it out and tell me what you think.
Young boy got the voice of an angel, can't front. I seen him perform "Redbone" in a living room and hit all the necessary notes. I was blown away and got nothing, but love for the homie ever since. Check out Maceo's debut single below!
