Next Song (DaBaby Remix) – [D2X]

2019 has already been a breakout year for DaBaby. After inking a major deal with Interscope, dropping his Billboard-charting ‘Baby on Baby’ project, and embarking on a national headlining tour, it doesn’t seem like the Charlotte, NC native will stop heating up any time soon. His rise has drawn eyes and ears of hip-hop fans and other up-and-coming rappers alike, even inspiring one Chicago rapper to put his own spin on one of DaBaby’s hardest tracks to date. D2X is in the midst of his own come-up himself, and the seismic waves of his talent have already started reverberating through Chicago’s local scene. Last year, he released his ‘Enjoy Life’ EP and gained the attention of DJ Pharris at Power 92 with his song “Woop Woop”. For his latest drop, he’s remixed Da Baby’s “Next Song”—one of the standout tracks on 2018’s ‘Blank Blank’. The “Next Song” instrumental serves as an ideal blueprint for remixing, with its hard baseline and a simple yet remarkably menacing melody. D2X takes full advantage of this beat, filling in the gaps with his straightforward lyrical style and self-assured presence resonating throughout. He weaves in his own story to take possession of the track, referencing his …

XXL – [Levi Carter]

Despite being on Cousin Stizz’s One Night Only Tour for the past few months, Virginia artist Levi Carter is wasting no time in getting back into the swing of things with a new visual companion for his hypnotic track, “XXL” featuring cameos from a few of Boston’s premier names in Stizz himself, Dreaveli, Reefyeus, and Big Leano. The Roc Nation representative’s inimitable, futuristic sound has undoubtedly served him well throughout 2017, and heading into the new year, this is exactly the caliber of release that will ensure further success for Levi Carter in 2018. Directed by @thatvideokid, these visuals find themselves traveling through a colorful atmosphere of nostalgic yet futuristic feelings, emphasizing the illustrative nature of Lord Quan’s production on the track along with Carter’s introspective lyricism. Both the audio and visual components of this release mesh together with seamless chemistry, and with the things are looking, I highly recommend getting hip to Levi Carter as soon as possible – needless to say, he’s got next. Watch “XXL” below and let us know what you think the comments.

The Message – [D2X]

D2X has returned, this time with his latest track called “The Message.” Different from D2X’s usual style, he chose to slow this one down in order to match the tone of his solemn message. With a fanbase that is attracted to his aggressive style, this artist took a risk by showing another side of himself on a more melodic sounding instrumental. I hope we can hear a bit more of this style from D2X in the future, he handled this one well. Check it out down below.

Dreams – [D2X]

Last week, D2X decided to end the year with a new collaboration between him and his buddy GLOhan Beats called “Dreams.” In this one, GLOhan challenges D to take it to the next level by giving him a fast-paced instrumental. However, D2X did a great job showing his fans that he could handle the heat. Coming in at just under five minutes of continuous bars, this artist might just have one of his best songs yet. Be sure not to sleep, check out the latest from two artists that are destined to have a hot 2017.

Beast Mode – [D2X] ft. [J Savage]

Earlier today, upcoming artists D2X and J Savage came together on a Kid Marquis instrumental to bring us “Beast Mode”, a brand new single. This song will keep your attention throughout, as there are very few low points in between their bars. Although these names aren’t as big as some that you’re used to, don’t make that an excuse not to click play. Both artists have been working to master their sound and make a wave of their own, and with this single, it doesn’t look like much is going to stop them. Check out “Beast Mode” down below.
