Ghost Rider – [DC the Don]

By Danny Adams // 11 Jun 2021

If you’ve even paid the littlest bit of attention to hip-hop music recently, you should know that a nostalgic new version of pop-punk is coming back, and so many artists are taking this in stride. Out of everyone doing this, DC the Don is one of my absolute favorites, and after listening to just one song, the reason why is more than evident. He’s just so talented but never tries to overreach or force it, and the results simply speak for themselves. If you’re not entirely familiar with the LA by way of Milwaukee native, his latest A-Dawg and Jug-produced hit “Ghost Rider” is the perfect example and introduction to DC, and the music video that accompanies it is even better. With Director Cobain as well as some directorial help from DC himself, the visual takes heavy inspiration from The Sandlot, one of my personal favorite childhood movies. As it begins, a group of kids are playing a game of pickup baseball, and these youths are supposed to be younger versions of DC and his friends. As they play, a girl comes into the picture who appears to be a love interest for the young talent, but when a ball …

Save Me – [Dro Kenji]

By Danny Adams // 11 Jun 2021

It’s no secret that Internet Money is a label full of masterminds beginning with Taz Taylor and Nick Mira, but the team grows so much deeper than that. When it comes to some of the amazing people that work with IM, they never put their faith into an artist they don’t believe in, and Dro Kenji is the epitome of this. His work and popularity have grown tenfold since working with and signing to the label, and his stock price is only going to continue going up as he continues to prove just how much of a workhorse he truly is. Although he has put out a slew of projects over the past few months alone, I was more than happy to see him revisit one of my personal favorite projects from last year called Tears and Pistols to bring his hit single “Save Me” to life with the help of director Fuck Austyn. Throughout the entire video, Dro is in the middle of darkness as a spotlight shines on him and a lovely female companion who is all over him the entire time. Although this is basically the gist of it all, some of his hand movements are slowed …

Risk Taker – [Fat Nick]

By Danny Adams // 11 Jun 2021

I’ve been a massive supporter of underground musicians for the better part of a decade, at this point, and one of my favorite artists from the jump has always been Fat Nick. He just has this nonchalant enthusiasm behind him that combines with always energetic beats that are as aggressive as they are bass-forward, and every song he drops seems to be a hit. Even though it seems like he has taken a bit of time off, at least away from the spotlight, Nick is back and better than ever with his latest song “Risk Taker” produced by FLEXATELLI and REMY, as well as a video directed by Julian Yuri Rodriguez. When it comes to Fat Nick videos, he’s always bringing quite the show with various characters, plots, and other interesting inclusions, and this one is absolutely no different whatsoever. As it opens, a few B-roll shots are taken, the first and most interesting one being with him standing in front of a lavish fountain with a couple of lovely ladies as he holds a Gucci backpack that is the home to a baby kangaroo, showing off some of the exotic ways of life he lives. Later on, he takes …

Get N Dere Gang – [Lil Gotit] ft. [Lil Keed] & [Yak Gotti]

By Danny Adams // 10 Jun 2021

The day we’ve all been waiting for is finally here, and of course, I’m talking about the day that Lil Gotit decided to drop off his latest album entitled Top Chef Gotit. It’s no secret that Gotit knows how to cook up some heaters with his crew, but this album is definitely proving that he deserves a spot on the next tier of success with other YSL artists like Lil Keed, Gunna, and Young Thug. Along with the release of this incredible album, he decided to give fans even more reason to celebrate and dropped off an awesome new visual for his song “Get N Dere Gang” which features his brother Lil Keed as well as the always entertaining and energetic Yak Gotti. In this ShotByWolf-directed music video, things are kept pretty simple as they seemed to just shoot on the go, capturing moments where the artists are vibing out with one another. As it goes on, each talent shows off their extensive outfits full of designer names and diamond-studded chains, yet their personalities each shine bright for everyone to see. Even though they don’t have parts in this track itself, Gunna and Young Thug are featured copiously throughout, showing …

You & Me – [Tommy Ice]

By Danny Adams // 10 Jun 2021

If you’ve been following along to the SoundCloud music scene as most of us have for years, you’re undoubtedly familiar with Tommy Ice. He is simply a pioneer of the underground scene, and while he has the respect of almost any artist you can imagine, he is still considered one of the biggest hidden gems in music, at least in my opinion. Although he had taken a bit of a hiatus when it comes to dropping music, he decided to bring this break to an end with the release of a brand-new video for his song “You & Me”, and I have to say that even with a pause, he hasn’t lost his touch even slightly. This song came out back in December, so although it’s been in our hands for quite a few months, I’ve been keeping it in my rotation for quite some time still to this day, and I was absolutely ecstatic to see a visual to accompany this hit. Directed by Bodyshutters, the scene is set as it opens in the middle of an open field where Tommy and his lovely lady sit, spend time together, and enjoy life like only they know how. As his …

glittr – [aldn]

By Danny Adams // 10 Jun 2021

Hyperpop has pretty much consumed my life over the past few months, and I constantly find out about new artists on a daily basis. Out of everyone I have come across, aldn has become one of my all-time favorite musicians for more reasons than I can count, and when I first heard his song “glittr”, I was undeniably sold. You can only imagine how over the moon I was when I found out he was dropping a music video for this hit, and I was even more excited to learn the fact that Daniel Jordan K and Overcast were taking the reins for this visual, so I had to share it with you all as soon as I possibly could. Opening up, aldn is sitting in the middle of a dark, empty room typing into an old computer before pressing a button to prompt the song’s drop. When this happens, he is transported to another dark scene where shiny green strands of tinsel drape behind him as actual glitter covers his face and hair. Obviously, glitter is a major part of this visual, but so is the color green which comes up again sporadically during a scene where he sits …

Times Got Harder – [Drizzy JET]

By Danny Adams // 9 Jun 2021

I’m always on the lookout for the next big talent in the industry, obviously, but I’m even more so excited to see who the next big acts are coming out of Chicago considering it’s a city that’s so near and dear to my heart. Talents always put on for the Windy City and constantly show why we’re a force to be reckoned with, yet people somehow continue to sleep on this town. One day people will recognize the true potential that Chicago has when it comes to music of all different genres, and up-and-coming acts like Drizzy JET are here to continue proving why we deserve exponentially more respect than we receive. Even though Drizzy is a new name in my repertoire of rising talents, I couldn’t resist writing about his song “Times Got Harder” when I heard it. Even though it’s been a few weeks since it first dropped, I couldn’t resist writing about it and putting some new people on because this kid truly seems to have what it takes to make it to the next level. The instrumental opens with a very heartfelt, emotive piano progression that actually extends long into the song before we’re eventually greeted …

Frankenstein – [Lu baby]

By Danny Adams // 9 Jun 2021

Although Lu baby is a relatively new name in my arsenal of artists that I listen to, I’ve been thoroughly impressed with everything he has put out since he was put on my radar. When I first heard of him, it was because he and the legendary Pouya did a song together called “Walk In”, and after hearing their chemistry on that track as well as Lu’s raw talent, I knew I was going to be a fan for quite some time moving forward. Although I have still been revisiting his and Pouya’s song, I was definitely pleasantly surprised to see that he decided to drop off a single of his own recently entitled “Frankenstein”, and when I first pressed play, I knew this was going to be right up my alley. As the beat begins, thunder strikes in the distance as erratic, intense guitar scratches of some sort begin to take shape but eventually, a fairly simplistic drum and hat combination enter into the scene and give it an old-school boom-bap-like rhythm that Lu absolutely destroys. When he begins to spit, his deep voice comes through menacingly and confidently as he boasts some incredibly intelligent and creative bars that …
