Fun Time – [Bfb Da PackMan] ft. [Wiz Khalifa]

By Danny Adams // 28 Sep 2020

Out of anyone you could possibly think of in the entire music industry, I have to say that my respect for Bfb Da PackMan is at an all-time high. I was first put onto him through his collaboration with Sada Baby on “Free Joe Exotic”, as most people were, but after digging deeper into his multitude of other offerings, I could tell he was a special talent. Then, I found out that even with all of the success he has had seemingly overnight in the Rap world, he continues to work his day job as a mailman in the Houston area and plans to do so until he has at least Fifty million dollars in his bank account, at least that’s according to a comment he made on Instagram. It’s this hustle and determination that’s going to take him to the next level, but his enthralling personality and obvious talent can’t hurt either, of course. As he continues catching W’s in his blossoming career, he is back and better than ever with none other than Wiz Khalifa on his brand-new track entitled “Fun Time”. As the beat begins to play, high-pitched, momentous synths capture your attention before thunderous drums and …

She Told Me to Kill Myself – [smrtdeath] & [Lil Aaron]

By Danny Adams // 28 Sep 2020

Although I’ve become a massive fan of Hip-Hop influenced Punk Rock music for quite a few years at this point, Lil Aaron was really the first artist I was introduced to in this realm of the music industry. He just has this incredible way of combining many different genres with one another without giving up any of his artistic integrity, making every single song even better than ever before. It’s because of him that I was put onto smrtdeath, an equally enthralling and talented artist who provides some similar aesthetics to that of Aaron, so when they come together and make music, it’s a guaranteed hit every time. Earlier this month, the duo teamed up yet again to release a fantastic track entitled “She Told Me to Kill Myself”. Although the title and lyrical content might be a bit shocking, these are themes that aren’t really anything new if you’ve followed along with either artist’s career thus far. Jakkyboi, Omega, and Jordan all teamed up to tackle the production on this hit, utilizing some lively electric guitar licks, booming 808s, and chattering Hip-Hop inspired production for a speedy, lively instrumental that creates a familiar yet incredible foundation for smrt and …

Drugs and Flowers – [Egovert] & [Cash Bently]

By Danny Adams // 28 Sep 2020

Out of the entire underground music scene, Egovert is undoubtedly one of my absolute favorite artists making music. His dexterity is unbelievable, his charisma is captivating, and his sheer talent is undeniable, to say the least. He just has such a special talent of pushing the boundaries no matter how wild or unbelievable they might seem, but he does so in such a tasteful manner that he’s definitely an artist you need to keep an eye on. Cash Bently is a talent that I’m less familiar with, but I have heard some of his music previously and I think it’s safe to say that he can be described and categorized quite similarly to his fellow Virginia counterpart. When I talked to Ego and he told me he had a collaborative project on the way with Cash, I couldn’t wait to tune in and see what kind of hecticness that the two were going to bring to life. Considering Ego’s last EP was Kids These Days, one of my favorite projects overall this entire year, I was expecting something even wilder. Despite my anticipations, after listening to Drugs and Flowers, quite the opposite vibe happened in the best possible way. Rather …

Child of the Trenches 2 – [MBNel]

By Danny Adams // 25 Sep 2020

Although I was just put onto MBNel a few weeks ago, I couldn’t be more grateful for the music I’ve been able to experience. Hailing from Stockton, California, this Filipino-American emcee has clearly lived a tough life but rather than using music as a platform for revenge or threats, he instead uses it as a source to vent about all of the eye-opening and life-changing experiences that he has had to go through. Although his life might have gotten a bit better since making a name for himself in the music industry, he’ll never forget his roots or the things that molded him into the man he is today, and that’s extremely evident in every single song he drops. Not too long ago in July, the California spitter dropped Child of the Trenches, a 6-track EP that dives head-first into the battels he dealt with in the streets while also offering up optimism, courage, and tenacity that allows listeners to look at the glass half full rather than the other way around. Thankfully, he’s back with a follow-up to this incredible project with the EP’s second edition, Child of the Trenches 2, and this project proves his story wasn’t even …

Sun Came Out – [Gunna]

By Danny Adams // 25 Sep 2020

I feel like I end up coving almost every single release from Gunna which means I cover a lot of Gunna offerings considering he’s always dropping new content. He’s not letting WUNNA go, as he shouldn’t, and he’s been consistently releasing wonderfully inventive music videos to assist the project, so I couldn’t be more excited when I see he released even more. While I’ve probably heard “Dollaz On My Head”, “Skybox”, “Rockstar Bikers & Chains”, and “Addys” hundreds of times at this point, there are definitely some songs that are still fantastic, yet go unnoticed due to the fact that they’re overshadowed by these hits. Luckily, Gunna isn’t going to let these wonderful offerings fall by the wayside, and he’s trying to bring newfound attention to them by releasing visuals to highlight their incredibility. “Sun Came Out” is one of these hits, and although it might’ve been a song I’d only listen to when running through the album in its entirety, I definitely need to rethink my stance after checking out the brand-new music video. As we are introduced to the visual, Gunna and his crew are in an airport where they joke around about sleeping very well on their …

Bands In Da Basement – [03 Greedo] ft. [Chief Keef]

By Danny Adams // 25 Sep 2020

It’s always so unfortunate to think about 03 Greedo being locked up, especially because I started to get so heavily into his music right before he turned himself in. Luckily, thanks to his absolutely insane work ethic, he was constantly in the studio and recorded thousands of songs to help appease fans during his absence. Unfortunately, it’s tougher to make music videos with original content of course, but just like many other artists that had to make do during quarantine, his incredible team is finding ways around this obstacle in order to continue and deliver visuals to assist his unbelievable releases. Not too long ago, I heard “Bands In Da Basement” which featured the almighty Chief Keef and I was an instant fan from the moment I heard the mysteriously minimalistic production and Greedo’s individualistic autotuned crooning. Despite the odds being stacked against Greedo and Keef for a visual, 03’s team pulls through once again to gift us with an inventive and intriguing new video to assist this banger. It takes us back to the days of the two artists as kids, getting the assistance of some youngsters who look similar to the two artists to take center stage and …

Off-White – [Lil Wop]

By Danny Adams // 25 Sep 2020

A few years ago, my brother put me onto Atlanta artist Lil Wop and his distinct sound drew me in immediately, turning me into an instant fan. Considering I haven’t heard much from him recently, due to my own neglect most likely, I decided to do some research and found out some very interesting information. Not only was he actually born and raised in Chicago but he’s actually cousins with one of the city’s most notorious acts, Famous Dex. Although the two don’t share many similar sonic qualities, talent clearly runs deep in the family and that’s just an undeniable fact. Most recently, I noticed that Wop decided to drop off a new song called “Off-White” as well as a music video, and I had no choice but to tune in and see what I’ve been missing out on in recent memory. The beat starts right off with booming 808s that shake your speakers paired with little synth hits of some sort, elevated by growing, powerful background synths that provide Wop with a simplistic yet ominous foundation. It almost reminds me of production that Chicago emcee Valee would use, so being able to take such a minimal beat and make …

SMOKIN! Freestyle – [BBY Goyard]

By Danny Adams // 25 Sep 2020

There’s not much left to say that I haven’t already said about North Carolina by way of Maryland rapper BBY Goyard. If you haven’t woken up yet and seen the incredibly dexterous styles that Goyard has given us throughout his myriad of releases over the years, there’s not much more I can say other than you’re missing out on some of the best and most distinct music out. It feels almost weird calling him a rapper considering how diverse his sounds are and the sheer adaptability he has shown throughout his extensive career in the underground music scene. With Hyper Pop gaining more and more popularity, I look at Lil Shannon as being one of the founders of this subgenre, yet not all of his releases can simply fall under this category alone. He can make fast-paced, chaotic hits, Trap bangers, and club anthems, but his talents stretch way beyond these varieties as well. Take one of his most recent songs “SMOKIN! Freestyle” for instance, then go and explore the rest of his music, and you’ll have a hard time finding any two songs within his hundreds of releases that sound even slightly similar. Although I just wrote about this …
