Gleesh Place – [King Von]

By Danny Adams // 23 Oct 2020

I’m a massive fan of King Von and some people might claim that I’m biased because I’m so close to the city of Chicago, making the music scene pretty much right in my backyard. While bias might’ve played a part in my admiration for the Chicagoan at first, it takes only one listen to any of his songs to understand exactly why I’m not the only one buzzing about the incredible Rapper. His storytelling is as truthful as it is captivating and his ruthless, aggressive demeanor makes you believe every single lyric he spits, providing even more believability than I can describe with words. As he gears up for the release of his newly announced debut album Welcome to O-Block, set to come out a week from today, he also decided to bless fans with yet another story that is as vivid and real as ever before, as well as an accompanying music video. As the instrumental begins, momentous synths start out soft with a low volume as it builds into an epic basis for Von to go off the rails and unleash his narrative unlike ever before. When he does come in, additional synths, Trap percussion, and clean 808s also …

556 – [Comethazine]

By Danny Adams // 23 Oct 2020

After what seems like an eternity of hype and anticipation, Comethazine is back and better than ever with his brand-new project Bawskee 4, an incredible addition to the Bawskee series that he has been building on since he came onto the scene a few years ago. While it’s been abundantly obvious that there’s nothing nice or friendly about Comethazine, at least according to his music, his antihero demeanor is something that is as compelling as it is attention-grabbing. His one-liners are always well thought out and his attitude is just magnetic, at least for me, drawing me back in for every new song or project he puts out. Although I want to give Bawskee 4 a deeper listen before getting more in-depth about it, he also decided to complement the project with the release of the very timely, creepy, JMP-directed music video for one of the tape’s standout songs “556”. As it opens up, Comethazine and a group of friends are inside of a somewhat eerie, haunting wooden house, and I’m assuming they were enjoying a night of fun before things took a turn for the worst. He has his back to the old-timey front door as someone pounds, seemingly …

Alley Oop – [MBNel] ft. [Fenix Flexin]

By Danny Adams // 23 Oct 2020

Obviously, there’s an overflow of talent pouring out of the California music scene, but this is nothing new if you’re even remotely familiar with music in general. When it comes to the various Rap acts hailing from the coastal state, I’ve always been a fan of all the different vibey, synthy offerings that have come out over the years, which actually makes it tough for me to single out an individual artist who I favor over the rest. While MBNel is a slightly newer name for me, he has quickly risen through the ranks and become one of my absolute favorite talents due to the incorporation of his individualistic backstory and sheer skills, among many other things. One of the songs I was most excited for when I saw the tracklist for Child of the Trenches II prior to its release featured Fenix Flexin, one of the most notable West Coast acts you can think of, and this record, called “Alley Oop”, exceeded any of my expectations tenfold. Luckily, the duo linked up once again to bring this song to life in the form of a brand-new music video, directed by Carrington, and I couldn’t be more excited. As the …

Don’t Like Me – [Rico Nasty] ft. [Gucci Mane] & [Don Toliver]

By Danny Adams // 22 Oct 2020

It seems like in 2020 more than ever, female rappers are taking over the Rap industry, and I’m all here for it. Out of all the women you can think of making incredible music, Rico Nasty is one of my favorites. She just has this bubble charisma that is juxtaposed by a slightly aggressive and insistent style that is confident and attention-grabbing, so she is arguably one of the most compelling artists in the industry, to say the least. She also just has the natural ability to make hits, which is more than what can be said of a lot of artists in Rap regardless of gender, and if people are hating or sleeping on her because she’s a woman, it’s way past your time to wake up, and her plethora of incredible music speaks for itself. When I saw she dropped a new single entitled “Don’t Like Me”, I stopped whatever I was doing to tune in, and then I found out she recruited Don Toliver and Gucci Mane to assist her, so I knew I was in for a treat without a doubt in my mind. Once again, as soon as you press play, hitmaker Buddah Bless brings …

Replace Me – [Nas] ft. [Don Toliver] & [Big Sean]

By Danny Adams // 22 Oct 2020

Whether you’re a young, new school fan of Rap music or you’re an OG fan of the “golden era” of music, there should be no question that Nas is one of the greatest emcees to ever grace a microphone. His thirteenth studio album King’s Disease was a project I was curious about because a lot of originators of the genre take one of two paths. One of these paths includes the mindset that they’re too good for the new generation of artists while the other path recognizes their talents and wants to include them. Nas took the latter, thankfully, and included a slew of new aged rappers like Fivio Foreign, A$AP Ferg, Anderson .Paak, Big Sean, and Don Toliver, among many others. Due to this, he was able to bring a hint of old school sounds back with the infusion of many newer influences, allowing the two time frames to collide, ultimately resulting in an absolutely unbelievable album, unsurprisingly. In order to assist his incredible project, he has dropped off a variety of music videos, prompting me to cover his latest visual for “Spicy”, the bonus track featuring Fivio and Ferg. Just when I thought the fun might’ve concluded, he’s …

Solar System – [Famous Dex] ft. [Trippie Redd]

By Danny Adams // 22 Oct 2020

Famous Dex has been an icon in the Chicago music scene for quite a few years, at this point, and although it’s been a minute since he might’ve gained nationwide recognition for songs like “Drip From My Walk”, “Pick It Up”, or “Japan”, that doesn’t take away from the fact that he’s still one of the hardest working artists in the industry. Earlier this month, he released his second studio album entitled Diana after his mother who unfortunately passed away a few years ago after her fight with breast cancer, but I can say with the utmost certainty that she’s looking down from above and smiling at all of Dex’s success. One of the standout tracks on the album is undoubtedly “Solar System” which features Trippie Redd, and although you have most likely heard it by now, I figured I’ll cover some of the basics before getting into the brand-new music video. Ambient synths begin right off the bat before intergalactic noises and a percussion-heavy instrumental begin to take shape, transporting us to another universe that only Dex and Trippie can create with their unbelievably creative minds. Trippie only takes the various hooks in this track, offering up some smooth, …

Favorite Ni**a – [REASON]

By Danny Adams // 21 Oct 2020

If you’re even remotely familiar with Rap music, you already know that TDE contains some of the most talented artists in the industry. Even if we’re not talking about the Kendricks, Schoolboy Qs, Ab-Souls, or Jay Rocks, their roster goes so much deeper than their world-renown talents, and REASON is one of the most underrated yet incredibly talented acts they have on their lineup. After his debut project New Beginnings dropped, this is abundantly clear, and although it featured some heavy hitters like Schoolboy, Soulo, Rapsody, Isaiah Rashad, and JID, REASON made sure that he wasn’t left in the dust for even a single offering. The project reached the #167 spot on this week’s Billboard Top 200 list and even though it might not be more towards the top where it should be, breaking onto this coveted list, in general, is an unbelievable feat in and of itself. In order to keep his momentum going, he decided to drop off a brand-new music video for one of the project’s most notable songs “Favorite Ni**a”, a track that I’m not going to go into detail about because you’ve most likely already heard it and if not, you’ll realize what you’ve been …

AUBUDABii – [SEBii]

By Danny Adams // 21 Oct 2020

When it comes to the interesting mind of an artist like SEBii, nothing is normal, but that’s what makes him so great, and a mystery at the same time. I was only recently put onto his music or Hyper Pop in general, if that’s even what his music can be considered, but in my opinion, he’s in a lane of his own that is unmatched by anyone else. On the outside, he might look like a normal person, or at least definitely not someone who would even be remotely capable of making the hits he does, but one look at his slew of releases will have your mind blown. As he gears up for the release of his next project VVSS, I have honestly no idea what to expect from the rising star, but I can say with the utmost certainty that he’s going to deliver some of the most original and unique music in the entire world. In order to appease fans one final time before the project is in our hands, he decided to drop off a single entitled “AUBUDABii”. Clearly referencing the capital of the United Arab Emirates, an extremely well-off country in the Middle East, he’s …
