Premiere: Blue Slime – [2k Melo] [YBT]

When you think of Virginia and rap, the first names that come to mind are usually Clipse, Pharrell, Chad Hugo, and a few others – all Virginia Beach legends. But as time has gone on, the state’s musical output has evolved, more recently with the talents of 2k Melo: a Norfolk-based artist, and one whose energy and consistent output have gradually developed him into a blossoming name to watch. Today, with perhaps his most exciting offering to date, 2k Melo is here to hit our pages with “Blue Slime” alongside YBT.

Put simply, “Blue Slime” has an in-your-face, punk energy to it, largely thanks to the heaviness of the metal guitar riffs that lead the production. Once you add in the sharp contrast of trap drums, Melo and YBT are left with just enough room to let loose a fully-automatic supply of flows, switching back and forth with untouched chemistry. This pairing, along with the rockstar-esque sound, make “Blue Slime” one of the most exciting new releases I’ve heard in recent memory, especially out of Virginia.

Add all of this to a strong supply of visuals – simple, hard-nosed, and perfect for such a heavyweight song –  and you’ve got a hell of a release. Norfolk has something to say, and 2k Melo is here to make it known.
