A Man Rose from the Dead- [Scrim]

I understand that there was a boatload of new music that dropped Thursday night including projects from Future, Polo G, Yung Lean, and many more. While these may overwhelm the media and take all of the attention from most other music that released, the most under the radar project by far is Scrim’s debut solo album A Man Rose from the Dead. Up until this point, Scrim was one half of the infamous duo $uicideboy$, and he continues to be a part of the group of course, but this is the first real taste we have of any sort of solo music from him or his counterpart Ruby. Typically, when artists split off to do their own thing, it’s because they’re maybe tired of having to constantly share the spotlight with the rest of their crew or they believe it’s time that they get to have their own complete control over the creative freedom within their music. For Scrim, neither of these things is really the case. He needed to do this for himself and his own sanity. Those of us who know the constant struggles he has never been shy to talk about in music and interviews, know that …

Outlawz – [Terror Reid] ft. [Pouya]

Throughout my life as a Rap fan, I’ve been put on to different artists in various different ways. Some artists I’ve been put on to by friends, others I’ve come across on social media, or maybe I learned about them because they were featured on a song with an artist I was a fan of and was impressed enough to dive into their individual music. Getter is a musician that I came across in a very unique way, however. Considering I’m a huge fan of Nick Colletti’s online presence and they’re good friends, I took a liking to his antics within random YouTube videos I’d watch before finally deciding that I needed to check out his music. While I’m not a huge EDM fan, some of his songs felt overwhelming at times, but I quickly realized he worked with $uicideboy$, Pouya, and a lot of other artists who I’ve been a fan of for years, so that’s when I really started to enjoy his dynamic abilities as a producer. His ability to make a ridiculous variety of sounds across multiple genres always drew me in, but his skills don’t just stop there. He’s also an abundantly talented rapper, using the …

PSA- [Fat Nick]

Fat Nick has been an underground phenom for some time now. His completely individualistic sound fits right on the same path that some of his friends are on including $uicideboy$, Germ, and Pouya, among others, yet they all find a way to separate themselves in their own lanes within a similar subset of the industry. Fat Nick has always had a smoothness to him, whether you’re listening to his toned-down offerings or his hyped-up, crazy bangers. Although we haven’t received a cohesive project in some time now, he has been consistently dropping singles every couple of weeks on his own and with some very special guests. His latest loosie is called “PSA”, and to say it goes hard is an understatement. Production on this track features some daunting yet bouncy synths to lay a sort of pavement for the rest of the instruments. These instruments are pretty much percussion dominant, with beyond aggressive snares and hats riddled throughout, as well as beyond the heavy myriad of 808s. Nick puts his ever so clever wordplay and bars on full display while he talks about the wild crew he runs with, his troubled past with drugs and crime, and other familiar tales …

The Voices in the Dark- [Ramirez]

Grey 59 has done an absolutely incredible job stacking their lineup of artists over the past few years. Obviously, $uicideboy$ led the label to where it is in the industry today, and they continue to transform as well as bend the rules of traditional Rap music. Beyond that is Germ, who has brought a more energetic side to the label with his wild flows and versatility over many different styles of production. One of the artists on their roster who sometimes seems to get overshadowed for no good reason is Ramirez. He’s kind of the best of both worlds when it comes to his label mates. He can spit rapid-fire bars, change his voice to portray different emotions, stand out on any beat he is given, and he even brings an exuberant amount of energy to any song he’s a part of. His most recent single is called “Voices in the Dark”, and it’s the perfect example for my list of reasons as to why he deserves more respect. With production brought to you by the one and only Mikey the Magician, he puts so many sounds and instruments together that just shouldn’t work simultaneously but somehow do, as well …

Burnt Out- [Germ]

I’ve had my eye on Germ from the moment I heard a few of his unbelievable features in some of my favorite $uicideboy$ songs. I was worried that without the cryptic New Orleans duo to back him up, he might not make as big of an impact with his solo music but man was I wrong, and I couldn’t be happier about that. Last year’s mixtape GERM HAS A DEATHWISH contained hits after hits, and I had it on repeat for well over a month. I still consistently go back to it and give it a run through at least once a week, so I think it’s safe to say that I’m a pretty big fan of Germ’s music. When I saw on zacftp’s Instagram story that Germ dropped a song called “Burnt Out” with an accompanying video, I dropped everything and had to check it out. YAYGO, who seems to be Germ’s favorite producer to work with for good reason, brings the beat to life through filtered guitars and a piercing but fairly quick bassline. Germ shows off a new side of himself in a sense, demonstrating a different vibe that sounds brighter and more bouncy than normal. He …

Fuck Your Culture & Scope Set – [$uicideboy$]

After being completely spoiled in years past with the mass amounts of mixtapes and EPs that the $uicideboy$ would release every single year, this year seems kind of slow for them. After Live Fast, Die Whenever, their Travis Barker collaborative project, dropped at the beginning of the summer, we haven’t gotten much from the duo other than a couple loosies and a few guest features. All of these appearances were fantastic and much appreciated, but we just didn’t have access to the quantity that we’ve grown used to. That’s okay with me though, because it means that they’re working more on their quality and making more all-encompassing projects rather than just pumping out content to prove that they can. Before the year ended, I was so excited to see that two new singles had dropped, one being called “Fuck Your Culture”. Not straying away from the always edgy and blatant themes they discuss and portray, this song is right up the alley of classic $B fans. With a spooky and haunting beat containing their distinct pitched down and chopped up samples in the background, Ruby and Scrim go to work. Scrim experiments with a different voice in the first verse, …

Gimme Brain – [Travis Barker] ft. [Lil Wayne] & [Rick Ross]

I know this is a few days overdue, but the fact that Travis Barker, Lil Wayne, and Rick Ross are on a track at the same time was something I just had to write about. Although the lyrics are about as dirty as rap lyrics can get, Wayne kind of goes back to a similar sound that he used to use more often back in the day which is nostalgic as ever. Rick Ross switches up his cadences a few times as to not get overly repetitive with the somewhat monotonous themes being talked about throughout this song. I’m definitely a fan of this record, but my favorite part had to be the production largely thanks to Travis Barker. It sounds a bit like an old school dance anthem, but Barker does a great job of bringing new elements and layers to the percussion throughout the progression of the beat. “Gimme Brain” also comes with an animated lyric video which takes place in none other than a strip club to match the words perfectly. Once again, this track isn’t going to necessarily impress you lyrically or anything like that. On the other hand, it’s a song that I definitely appreciated …

picture perfect – [Germ]

G59 records have an absolutely stacked lineup of artists including $uicideboy$, Ramirez and of course the extraordinarily talented and wild Germ. All of these artists make music that’s so different and simply can’t be replicated, but Germ might have a subgenre of rap all to himself with his energetic personality, adlibs, and just aura surrounding him. Although he’s been relatively quiet since he released GERM HAS A DEATHWISH earlier this year, the project was so good in my opinion that it’s still in my weekly rotation and it’s going to stay there for the foreseeable future. I loved the project, but I was waiting on some new music from him, so I was beyond excited to listen to his most recent release of “Picture Perfect”. This song is so uncharacteristic of Germ, but I’m a big fan. He switches off using different vocal techniques, going from rapping to singing, which is something you don’t often hear from him. He utilizes most of his normal energy in the form of his adlibs, which are fantastic accents to this rhythmic banger. As a music fan, I can’t help but appreciate when an artist gets out of their comfort zone and tries something …

When It’s All Gone – [Terror Reid]

As a music fan in general, you most likely know about Getter. He’s one of the most popular DJ’s in the world, and he’s known for not only producing brain-melting EDM hits, but also creating dark and underground beats for rappers like $uicideboy$ and Ghostemane. Beyond this, he gained notoriety as an actor and comedian on various platforms, as well as owning his own clothing brand. One thing that he’s definitely lesser known for but shouldn’t go unappreciated is his insane lyrical abilities that he conveys through his alter ego known as Terror Reid. He has released an array of songs via this other persona where he raps violent and aggressive bars while including some quite comical lyrics mixed in. He does this flawlessly overproduction that’s very reminiscent of classic Rap from the ‘80s and ‘90s. His latest offering “When It’s All Gone” is no different, but just as entertaining as every other track he’s released with this character. This self-produced track has that nostalgic boom-bap sound which allows for Reid’s lyrics to flow freely into the ears of the listener, which is excellent considering you don’t want to miss any of the clever wordplay that is used throughout the …

Generation Numb – [Fat Nick]

Fat Nick has been in-and-out of our pages leading up to his anticipated project Generation Numb and now, the moment we’ve all been waiting for is finally here. Laced with 11 tracks, the Florida rapper recruited the likes of Ohgeesy, Bexey & blackbear who featured on Ice Out with production coming from a handful of names including Mikey The Magician and Flexatelli to name a couple. Being one of the longtime underground threats out of the Sunshine State, it’s been known that Fat Nick is a force to be reckoned with since his come-up and with the likes of Pouya, $uicideBoy$ and a whole lick of Florida’s next big artists flourishing alongside him, it’s really no better time to be a fan of the movement. Having said that, waste no time getting into Generation Numb and let us know which track you’re rocking with most in the comments below!
