675 Frank Cir. – [Baby OG]

By Jack Gregory // 27 Jun 2022

Debuting in our pages today is Memphis artist Baby OG’s album 675 Frank Cir. Bluff city has one of the most dense musical histories in the country extending far beyond even Hip Hop, but arguably more than any other city, Memphis artists have contributed the most over the years to creating the different sounds we know today. Baby OG grew up between the Longview Heights apartments in the Pine Hill area of Memphis before relocating to the White Haven area on the South side. Since 2011, Baby OG has been impressing the city with his lyrical abilities from his time at Whitehaven High School, and has continued to remain consistent. He has amassed a sizable catalog of quality projects and videos alike gradually building up a fanbase across his city and beyond, even impressing the likes of Tay Keith who signed him to Drumatized. Baby OG’s project 675 Frank Cir is his most polished and thorough body of work yet. He called upon features from Tay Keit, Tre DaVinci, JC Gwalla, and Co Cash. The album is a series of snapshots from Baby OG’s turbulent but inspiring come-up story. He highlights both the massive pride of his area and the …

I Want – [CamoGlizzy]

By Jack Gregory // 27 Jun 2022

Landing fresh in our pages today is Kinston, NC artist Gamoglizzy who is putting his foot on the gas unloading many new videos this year. Today he is back with a new visual for his track “I Want” complete with direction and editing by MattXplorz. The track’s production is handled by MrGoodBarz who supplied a melodic and melancholy instrumental that served as a strong backdrop for Glizzy’s vocals. This track is much more melodic than some of his previous work and shows his versatility. He has worked with many of the top artsits in North Carolina and with consistency surely can be one of the next artists from his state to earn mainstream recognition. I am eager to see what else he has in store for the remainder of this year and hope that we get more visuals for him soon. 

Oscar – [MVW] [Valee]

By Jack Gregory // 27 Jun 2022

Michael Vincent Waller or MVW lands fresh in our pages today with his new track “Oscar” alongside the unique and elusive Chicago artist Valee who skates with his trademark nonchalant flow overtop MVW’s laid-back regal instrumental as he juxtaposes a brooding classical piano melody with skittish, rousing percussion. Producer is a title that simply falls short for MVW as he is a classically trained composer who grew up in Staten Island and fell in love with both orchestral music and hip-hop, growing up a massive Wu-Tang fan. MVW’s entire catalog has been lauded by critics and he effortlessly blends elements of what would be considered “high-art” in the minds of academics with the contemporary trap production that has integrated its way into nearly every style of music you can think of. He boasts a number of intriguing collaborations with big names, also recently working with Desiigner, Matt Ox, 645AR, Babyface Ray, and Lil Gotit, among others. I can’t wait to see which artists he chooses to work with next and would highly recommend delving through his catalog if you enjoyed “Oscar.”

Lawsy talks Sexxnb, his inspirations, the team of producers behind him, and his goals for the rest of 2022 in an exclusive new interview

By Jack Gregory // 16 Jun 2022

No artistic medium of the past century is safe from post-modernism, and much of the last two decades have seen a re-purposing of everything from architecture to clothing trends and even music, as the ‘SoundCloud’ generation in-particular showed millions how contemporary music styles can be fused with futuristic production styles and autotune warped deliveries. This creative trend is even evident in a scene such as NY-drill’s red-hot sample movement that has turned classic songs from the last thirty-years into frenetically-paced instrumentals fit for the artists to record by punching one line in over top the next, resulting in staccato, machine-gun-esque flows more suited to the subject matter of their lyrics than the oftentimes ironically warped 2000’s pop-hits they borrow melodies from. However this is just the tip of the iceberg and chances are at some point across the internet almost every single genre of the past one-hundred-years has been retrofitted in one way or another, having trunk-rattling 808’s introduced over acoustic instrumentation of the past or hedonist lyrics with almost sacrilegious subject matter over tracks considered musical canon or at the very least veer sharply in a different direction from the original creator’s intentions. Rising teenage star Lawsy is one …

FAZEZ -[BabyDraco]

By Jack Gregory // 15 Jun 2022

New Jersey born, Atlanta based artist BabyDraco lands in our pages once again. It has been very fun to watch his journey as an artist unfold over the last few years, starting with his earliest release ROADRUNNER originally under the moniker Big Draco where he began to dazzle listeners with his sweet melodic tones and impermeable beat selection where he gravitated to some of the most catchy production around with mostly all new names in the beat-making world. He followed this up with a catchy streak of singles that led into his follow-up EP babydraco which ended up being a self-titled release after he changed his name to avoid confusion with Soulja Boy, despite the fact that Draco had already been calling himself that for years. He is back today with his newest full-length project titled FAZEZ which shows a dramatically increased sonic maturity as Draco builds upon each of the melodic pillars he has put into place thus far and even heads in new, more experimental directions where he plays around with new instrumental styles and finds new range in his vocals both with the help of effects and not. Kevin Kazi who has been a consistent collaborator of …

SW4TS Veteran – [Quez4Real]

By Jack Gregory // 6 Jun 2022

Atlanta has seen a changing of the guard of sorts over the last five years or so as once beloved trap superstars have fully transformed into mainstream icons, leaving new voids in the massively-talented and artist-rich community of Atlanta. Over the past year or two it has become clearly apparent which artists that have been establishing their buzz since the start of the pandemic and even right before who stand the best chance to make a leap into the mainstream after finding the right situation or making the perfect song. Since first bubbling onto the scene in 2019 with his EP Straight Out the SW4TS and the consequential mixtape Straight Out the SW4TS 2 (SW4Ts stands for ‘southwest zone-4’ identifying the side of town he’s from by the eerie numbered police districts Atlanta has) which captivated his neighborhood which has seen titans like Lil Baby rise from its proving grounds. Quez’s raw talent was obvious from the jump, gliding over any instrumental thrown at him with a velvety southern-drawl and playful matter-of-factness that earned him respect from his peers and those with careers already established alike. His 2020 mixtape Naw 4 Real is the project that really cemented Quez as a clear frontrunner poised to lead …

2219 – [2219 Lee]

By Jack Gregory // 6 Jun 2022

Jersey City artist 2219 Lee lands in our pages with his incredibly captivating new project 2219 where he shows off his unique brand of r&drill if you will where he glides over groovy and compelling production with the distinct New York-drill flavor which has reached across the Hudson River. The project features executive production from perhaps New York City’s most vital producer CashCobain who has been gravitating more in a melodic direction recently with 2 Slizzy 2 Sexy with Chow Lee which shows how much more dynamic the sound can be than crashing heavy percussion and violent taunts. Lee’s worldview is grounded and his lyrics are filled with self-reflection and wisdom beyond his years. He calls upon features from CashCobain, Max YB, FLEE, Chow Lee, Lonny Love, Mali Smith, and Matthew Ali. I am very excited to see where 2219 Lee goes from here and hope to see some visuals from this project as well.
