Pallbearers – [Kuttem Reese]

By Danny Adams // 25 Oct 2021

The Florida rap scene has been absolutely booming over the past year or two, but it seems like it’s taking a while for the rest of the country to catch on. It reminds me a lot of the Michigan scene as well because until Lil Yachty went up there to put the rest of the country on, it seemed like a very niche and close-knit community of fans that were ride or die, but everyone else was sleeping. This is what has happened in Florida as well, but the number of talented acts emerging is literally countless, and every single day a new artist rises from the shadows, it seems. While emcees like Kodak Black, Hotboii, and 9lokknine are some of the more notable names coming out of the southern region, Kuttem Reese is a talent who I’ve become very familiar with, and I feel like he just continues to get better with every new release he puts out. While Reese is still on the prowl to be the next big thing from Orlando, he’s making another strong case with his latest song “Pallbearers” which is undeniably a song you need to check out immediately as well as the Directed …

Luigi – [2KBABY] ft. [Chief Keef]

By Danny Adams // 25 Oct 2021

2KBABY is an artist who I heard so much buzz about, but I never got around to checking out his music, somehow. Although Jack Harlow is an artist who can be considered the face of Louisville rap, there are so many incredible talents hailing from the Ville, and 2K is definitely a name you should keep in your head, and this was made obvious to me after I finally tuned in and realized what I was missing out on. He might still be scratching and clawing his way through the ranks of the music industry, but he already has a solidified foundation in the scene after working with numerous other artists including G Herbo, Marshmello, and others as well as a few other promising collaborations on the way with names like Murda Beatz. Most recently, the song that finally got me to listen up and pay attention was “Luigi”, 2K’s latest track with Chicago icon Chief Keef, so when I saw this record and Jay Pusha-directed music video came out towards the end of last week, I couldn’t put it off any longer. In the instrumental, there are some optimistic, resilient piano keys that are brought to new levels once …

Watch Femdot perform “Bussin” on COLORS

By Danny Adams // 25 Oct 2021

There are few artists in the current music scene that are more important to Chicago than Femdot. He has been grinding for years, making moves on a daily basis to go from local legend to world-renown phenom, and it has been one of the most fun rises to fame to watch that I can think of. The way Fem is able to bridge the gap between his real-life stories and relevant, impressive sounds is remarkable, and his skills are nothing short of incredible. Despite his constant grind, it has been so cool to see all of his hard work pay off, especially over the last year or so, but it’s insane to think that this is still just the start of his potential being unleashed to wider audiences. One thing fans can get excited about is the highly-anticipated release of his upcoming project Not For Sale, and as we prepare for that, he released a brand-new single entitled “Bussin” that certainly has me waiting on the edge of my seat for his next project because if it’s anything like this song, I know it’s going to do numbers and be massively successful. In order to gain even more buzz for …

broke – [cultgabe]

By Danny Adams // 22 Oct 2021

Not too long ago, I was put onto San Diego-native cultgabe’s song “Heathrow”, and although this was my first taste of his music, I immediately knew he was going to do some great things throughout his career. Although he’s still relatively new to the music scene, music itself isn’t a new concept to him considering he recorded his first verse at the youthful age of 8 on his cousin’s laptop, and the rest has been history ever since. He just seems like the type of artist who knew what he wanted from a very young age, and even if he couldn’t turn many heads back then, he had this dream and a desire to change the world of music at some point in time, and that time is now. At the age of 22, gabe is finally starting to see his dreams come to fruition, and that is true with the release of his most recent EP nowherefast which boasts 6 songs and clocks in at just over 20 minutes long. This project gives you the perfect taste of some of the many skills he possesses while also leaving you with a desire for more, but I can say with …

Honest – [She Loves Boon] ft. [Belis]

By Danny Adams // 22 Oct 2021

Every single day, it seems like artists are pushing the boundaries that the music industry had previously set in place, causing the formation of brand-new genres and innovative sounds that get more interesting and appealing than before. While New York City’s very own She Loves Boon is an artist who was just put on my radar, he was someone I needed to know more about in order to truly give him the respect he deserves. Ever since entering the music scene years ago, he has blended the genres of hyperpop, R&B, hip-hop, indie music, and various other genres in order to create his own sound which he calls “emotional trap”, and this creates some of the most unbelievable music that you’ll hear all week. Most recently, Boon teamed up with Belis for yet another single entitled “Honest”, and while the influences of hyperpop and rap are abundant, it’s obvious once again that he’s in a lane of his own and no one else is coming even close to touching him. In this record, the instrumental begins with some electronic, technological-sounding synths that are combined with a smooth 808s base and additional robotic sounds that give a new spin on an …

won’t say 2 much – [Austin Skinner]

By Danny Adams // 22 Oct 2021

Austin Skinner is an artist who I’ve had on my radar for a couple of years, at this point, but it wasn’t until the last six months or so that I truly began to appreciate his music for just how incredible it really is. He has this way of combining his commanding vocals with deep, powerful synths that work together so remarkably well, but he also constantly ensures that he’s not just putting out the same style of music, switching things up with ease in order to keep his foot on the gas and not slow down for even a second. Ever since teaming up with BIGBABYGUCCI and their Better Temperatures label, it seems like his skills have only sharpened and his creativity is at an all-time high, so now more than ever is the moment in time that you need to pay attention to what he’s doing within his very captivating and fruitful career. He’s never one to go too long without releasing something new, and today he kept that streak going with the release of his latest single “won’t say 2 much”. Produced by Sapjer and Joe Dirt, things open up with a part of the instrumental that …

LEFTRIGHT – [Keshore]

By Danny Adams // 21 Oct 2021

I honestly hate to admit it, but there are a few artists I slept on for way too long, and Keshore tops that list. He has been making so much incredible music over the past handful of years, and even though my brother told me to check him out so long ago, it wasn’t until the past half a year or so that I finally tuned in and realized everything that I was missing out on. While I’m ashamed it took that long, I figured it’s better late than never, and considering I’ve gotten to know him a bit more on the personal side of things, he’s an artist I will definitely never take for granted ever again. Just a couple of weeks ago, Ke released his highly anticipated project Sunset Diary which contained hits from front to back and some features in Sad Frosty, DC the Don, and $NOT that were all unbelievable contributions, but Keshore made sure that he was the star of the show, exactly as he should be. He opened things up on a high note with the first few energetic tracks, but none of them hit quite like the project’s opener “LEFTRIGHT” which is produced …

Slide – [midwxst] ft. [Slump6s] & [ericdoa]

By Danny Adams // 21 Oct 2021

It should come as no surprise to you that midwxst is one of my all-time favorite artists right now, but if you’ve followed along with my articles up until this point, that’s been abundantly clear for quite some time. He is always one to push the limit and never conform to what might be expected of a young up-and-comer in the current music scene, and that has only helped him solidify himself in the industry as one of the most innovative and entertaining artists in the entire world, at least he is in my opinion. Watching him go from a kid with a dream to a kid making those dreams come true has been one of the most amazing journeys to experience first-hand, and it still boggles my mind with the fact that he’s only getting started. A month or two ago he dropped off his latest project Back in Action and considering it is a project I haven’t grown even slightly tired of for a second, I keep looking for more and more content from the rising star because he’s just such a fun emcee to watch grow. Out of every track on this project, one of my favorites has …
