Blue Morning – [Atreesto]

Atreesto is a talent who I have raved about on our lemon filled pages time and time again, and today the Las Vegas-based producer is back with a brand new offering titled “Blue Morning”. Atreesto’s work ethic is second to none and his massive workload proves that as he seemingly is dropping instrumental after instrumental on the weekly and as a fan of him it’s an awesome thing to be receiving this much solid material. Atreesto has been making himself a second home here on our website and as long as he keeps up the good work, click play on this brand new tune below and if you like what you hear then go ahead + follow him on Soundcloud here!

Vision of Love – [Reek] x [Sage] feat. [Big Beautiful Williams] and [Levicantsing]

One of the most exciting collaborative efforts in Hip Hop at the moment is bubbling in the most unlikely of places – San Antonio, Texas. The talents of Reek & Sage, a collaborative duo from the Alamo city and no strangers to the site, have added a new visual to their arsenal. Their latest work, a storied video accompaniment to their song, “Vision of Love,” is a testament to the pair’s ability to excel both on record and on-screen. The producer-rapper tandem grabbed the attention of their growing fanbase through a playful ruse around a fake wedding. The staged ceremony, that surrounded the prolific emcee, simultaneously acted as their lush video’s backdrop. With the timeline in complete chaos from the perceived impromptu ceremony Reek and Sage built a profound amount of buzz around their new visual that in every way conveyed the duos preset aesthetic and continued level of quality. The blissed-out feeling of the record comes to life in the new visual with complete ease and what can only be described as wholesome images of love’s lifelong bond. Reek and Sage may be prolific in their ability as a group, each bringing out the best in one another, but …

LED – [Myles Cameron]

Myles Cameron is having an incredible 2020. The New York-based singer-songwriter is gearing up for a major release and to no surprise, his newly released single continues to not only build anticipation for what is to come next but solidifies Cameron’s continued streak of quality releases. His new song, “LED,” finds the vocalist in unfamiliar territory, from a production standpoint, that is executed with a perceived effortlessness. Backed by static-seemed electronic production that feels radioactive in nature, Cameron displays a clear ability to venture from his previously set MO. Frequent collaborative producer, Frankie Scoca, conjures a late-night type of atmosphere for Cameron to truly expound on his ability as a singer by broadening his range both thematically and sonically. This departure, which contrasts his previous released body of work Lonely Suburban Blackboy, is incredibly refreshing to listen to as we continue to watch Myles Cameron explore various sounds that, to no surprise, exemplifies his powerful vocal ability. “’LED’ was one of the first demos we made after Lonely Suburban Black boy and pretty much set the tone for where I wanted this project to live. It’s dark and hazy and processed. It was inspired by a moment of intimacy I …

Side Effects – [Lil Xelly]

If you haven’t heard of Lil Xelly at this point, you’ve probably been out of the loop for some time now. He is literally one of the hardest working and most consistent rappers in the industry to the point where if we don’t get a new offering from him on any given day, it’s unusual. He was once putting out at least one EP per week, dropping numerous music videos daily, and more, basically giving off the impression that he doesn’t sleep. I don’t know how he has managed to keep up with this output for well over a year’s time, but it’s gaining him so insane attention that’s going to pay off in the long run. I’m a bit late to one of his most recent videos and considering he has already probably released more new surprises for fans since less than a week ago, I thought about skipping past his video for “Side Effects”, but I just couldn’t leave it behind. I’m not used to Xelly singing much at all, let alone using a lot of autotune and other vocal effects, but he does so in this track, opening my eyes to even more skills I had never …

Dragonball Durag – [Thundercat]

Although Thundercat might be considered to be in a genre other than Rap or Hip-Hop music, his sound and talent seeps into all different subsets within the industry. He has worked with an array of artists including rappers, funk legends, and producers among others, and brings his own panache to the mix with every single person he collaborates with. His skills on the bass guitar transcend most artistic abilities in the industry today, and I think that’s one of the biggest reasons why he has made such an impact in the world of music, separating himself from the rest of the pack. Along with everything I previously stated, he’s never been one to release a typical song that fits perfectly into one genre or another. His latest release “Dragonball Durag”, is another single off of his upcoming album It is What it is and is a truly soulful offering. Along with some co-production from a friend and reoccurring collaborator Flying Lotus, a chill and laid-back vibe sets the scene. This is emphasized by subdued boom-bap percussion, saxophone riffs, and intricate, skillful bass chords. The vocals are higher-pitched, and the lyrics are somewhat in line with a classic love song. I …

Pity Party – [Curtis Waters]

Valentine’s Day is about as romantic of a day as it gets, couples around the world are expressing love and Instagram is littered with lengthy captions proclaiming their feelings for each other. For a single person, the entire weekend serves as a reminder of just how alone you are, all the love being on full display for your lonely eyes to scroll through. Anybody who related to that last sentence, you should probably give Curtis Waters’ sophomore album Pity Party a listen. The North Carolina by way of Calgary based artist has recently dropped 10 perfect songs for anybody out there who needs a beautifully constructed album to get you in your feelings. Curtis is an artist I have proudly covered over these past few months as he brings so much authenticity to his music, touching on topics and themes that hit home with his fans in a real way. Even though the tempos change drastically, the themes and introspective tones tend to stay the same throughout the project. Tracks like “6Pills” and “Better” appear bouncy off the top but when listening to the lyrics the juxtaposition between Curtis’ outward personality and the internal struggles he faces. Moving towards the album, …

Codeine Dreams – [Baby Smoove]

The upcoming Detroit-based artist Baby Smoove has consistently released heat throughout his tenure, with his latest track, “Codeine Dreams,” next on the list. The name of the track speaks volumes; with the groggy, drawn-out track causing listeners to sink into their chair. “Make them believe in me, I’m high, off codeine dreams, my cups are red and pink.” Produced by Kid Hazel, the drug-induced sound and melody provides for a wavy, fluid track that meshes boundlessly with Baby Smoove’s flow. As Smoove continues to climb and make a concrete name for himself in the industry, his consistent work and popularity will further launch him onward, as most of his tracks surpass 50k streams on SoundCloud. Stream “Codeine Dreams” by Baby Smoove below!

Give No Fxk – [Migos] ft. [Young Thug] & [Travis Scott]

When it comes to the current state of Rap music, the biggest names that stay relevant amongst all the competition have to be Migos, Young Thug and Travis Scott. Migos have the luxury of being a group, with each artist adding their own flair to every track they’re on as well as delivering some incredible solo music. Young Thug Has paved the way for the new wave of artists, showing that he’s not afraid in the slightest to be himself and although people try to copy his style left and right, no one has done it justice and I don’t think anyone ever will. Finally, Travis Scott has been tearing the game up and is debatably the biggest name out of this group, creating hit after hit when it comes to music as well as other industries including fashion and sneaker culture. On their latest offering “Give No Fxk”, all artists in the song really show out. It begins with some epic synths leveled up by an appealing bassline and some wild snares. This hook is a simple Migos hook delivered by Quavo, who pretty much repeats the title of the song over and over in a quite harmonious way. …

Go Stupid- [Polo G] ft. [NLE Choppa] & [Stunna 4 Vegas]

If you haven’t heard of Polo G, NLE Choppa, or Stunna 4 Vegas by now, you need to catch up with the times immediately. Polo G has proved time and time again that age doesn’t matter when it comes to rapping, and he’s done this through songs and albums that have set the streets on fire. NLE and Stunna have both been coming up rapidly as well, and although I’m much more familiar with Choppa than I am with Stunna 4 Vegas, their latest offering proves just how talented they really are. When it comes to their latest track “Go Stupid”, all three talents are on full display over a beat with heavy piano chords, almost overpowering bass, and a somewhat futuristic melody. Polo kicks off the song with his telltale drill-adjacent flow, talking about how he has nothing but new and improved music coming in the future. This is hard for me to fathom personally considering all of the already impeccable offerings he has already delivered. Stunna sort of yells his way through his verse, overlapping certain line to add layers and depth. NLE brings all the energy that we know he can as he discusses growing up in …
