Seezyn – “GREY”

A new artist that has been on my radar goes by the name of SEEZYN, also known as Carl Chaney, rising out of Cincinnati, Ohio. The singer, rapper, and songwriter started making music at the age of 15. By 17, he went by the Stage Name “CK” and became part of a group formally known as DEM DUD3S. The group would remain together until late 2017 when Chaney decided to pursue a solo career under the name Seezyn. Influenced by hip-hop artists such as Kanye West, Drake, and The Weeknd, Seezyn has created a sound that is similar to rock and electronic sounds you might have heard in the 80s. By the end of 2022, Seezyn blessed his fans with his latest mixtape Grey. The project features ten songs of absolute perfection as fans witness how much versatility Seezyn has to offer in his music. “Grey itself is a reflection of where I am in life. I would say it’s the most vulnerable I’ve ever been musically. I’m giving you a peek into my life and daily struggles with my emotions and feelings towards situations,” he acknowledged. “A lot of people see me in a certain light but I’m hoping …

16 Year Old DD Osama Is The Next Biggest Drill Artist Rising Out of NYC

DD Osama rising out of Harlem is one of the frontrunners of NYC drill. What separates DD from a lot of other drill artists is how quickly he rose to stardom this past year. The Sugarhill rapper has 1.1 million Spotify listeners and he hasn’t even been making music for a full year.

Zae Litty Turns All The Way Up On “Sprinter Vans” with Sosa Geek and SpotemGottem

Chicago native Zae Litty has always had a passion for music. His older brother helped him learn how to use the microphone when he was just 11 years old. Growing up listening to some of hip-hop’s greatest influencers like Lil Wayne, Drake, Speaker Knockerz, Juice WRLD, and many more. It was only a matter of time before he developed a sound of his own. He eventually came up with his interpretation of what trap/melodic drill is, after years of refining his sound. Two weeks ago, the rising talent teamed up with SpotemGottem and Sosa Geek on their new single “Sprinter Vans.” The DrewFilmedit shot video showcases Litty’s unique flow and abilities as a rapper. I look forward to watching his growth in 2023. Check out his new music video today.

Neek – “Toyota Tales”

Neek by name and unique by nature, the Houston-raised rapper has been making significant waves since relocating to LA. Now dropping his latest track titled “Toyota Tales,” he is truly marching towards the inevitability of a successful career in the music industry. After appearing on the NBA 2k22 soundtrack, his future appears to be even brighter as the single is set to expand his growing legion of fans. Accompanied by an extraordinary video that captures the journey he has been on, “Toyota Tales” is the perfect example of when an artist believes in themselves and constantly rises to the challenge. The son of a Nigerian DJ father, that melodic heritage is on full display as Neek delivers a laidback flow and then rises to the vocal challenge as the track requires. “This record was inspired by real-life events,” Neek says. “My first car was a 1996 Toyota Camry, then my 2nd was a 2006 Camry. To me, my Toyota’s were a symbol of both struggle and strength. It was a significant piece of my journey that I embraced then and still do to this day. This record is for the ones who can relate.” Neek understands his responsibility to engage the …

SoFaygo Interview: Respecting the Grind and the Evolution

Photo Credit: Le3ay Studio As we’ve progressed through music, we have grown to see the many mediums that artists are using now to take their careers to the next level. We’ve seen artists get popular from Myspace and older social media platforms. Current social sites such as Instagram and TikTok play a huge factor in emerging artists as well. By far one of the most memorable moments in rap would be the rise of Soundcloud rap and the amazing talent that stemmed from it. Being able to watch artists like XXXTENTACION, Lil Uzi Vert, Playboi Carti, Trippie Redd and Lil Yacthy take that platform and completely skyrocket into fame was such an amazing sight to see. While each of these artists has their own respective art and their own craft, they all share one thing in common being the OG’s of the Soundcloud rap community. Here we are in 2022, and we are witnessing the new generation of artists who catch their big break from Soundcloud and take their career to the next level. Some of those names are SSG Kobe, Yeat, Ken Carson, and none other than SoFaygo. First blowing up in 2019 with his breakout single “Knock Knock”, …

There’s a new hot commodity in town and she goes by the name Ice Spice.

On the Weekends I Feel Like Drake – [Fat Nick]

As is the case with most music fans, I listen to certain artists in waves. I just feel like ever since I can remember, I have gone through phases where I only listen to specific artists for a set period of time, but then something new comes out and my admiration begins to tilt in a different direction. I can even tell you what point I was at in my own life based on who I was listening to. Whether it was my Kendrick phase, Kanye phase, straight underground SoundCloud phase, or any of the others, I have been able to appreciate specific artists or styles individually for an exact amount of time before coming across something else. One person that I don’t think I ever outgrew or moved on from is Fat Nick, a Florida phenom who has been lighting the underground scene on fire for years and years, but he has never let up or given me a reason to find something else. Sure, I listen to a whole slew of other emcees as well currently, but whenever Nick drops something, I do my best to tap in because I know it’s not going to be something I …

Clan Way 3 – [BlueBucksClan]

Los Angeles has always been a breeding ground for innovation in terms of music. I don’t know if it’s the constant sunshine, the fresh air, the ocean views, or what it is, but if you look back to the very beginning of hip-hop’s origins out West, there is always someone pushing the boundaries and making something that you’ve never heard before. Now, I can’t claim that all of BlueBucksClan’s music is completely brand-new or a style that others haven’t attempted, but I can say with the utmost confidence that no one has done it quite as effortlessly or impressively as Jeeezy Obama and DJ have. For the past few years, they have been steadily climbing the ranks of the West Coast music scene, and while they have just begun their nationwide supremacy, they have been piling up notoriety from publications like Pitchfork, XXL, and Complex as well as co-signs from many artists, the most notable of which is probably Drake. While it appears as if this success has been off of various singles and tapes dropped throughout their tenure, I think that the next step towards success comes in the form of Clan Way 3, their latest album that will …

This weekend, you can expect Fivio to bless Prudential Center with a performance at Powerhouse.  

Tarzzahn – Pu$$y Poppa

Rising artist Tarzzahn recruited producer Youngstarr Beatz to create his new single “Pu$$y Poppa”. The record was originally created in 2010 with the hope of being released at the time. However, due to Tarzzahn going to prison, the record was placed on pause. Youngstarr Beatz first received recognition for B-Hamp: Do the Ricky Bobby with 4 million views and counting on Youtube. After receiving a check for 42k, his career took off and he eventually landed on Drake’s paradise tour. The opportunity of a lifetime came when 2 Chainz Dj played “I Love Dem Strippers” and Beatz was flown out to join the music video. He went on to develop relationships with Kid Ink, Lil Boosie, Yo Gotti, Rich Homie Quan, and Lil Wayne throughout his career. But his biggest record to date is Fetty Wap’s “My Way,” which peaked at number seven on the Billboard Hot 100, and Drake ended up hopping on the remix. 12 years later, Tarzzahn and Youngstarr Beatz reunited to remix the vocals on “Pu$$y Poppa” and revamp the production to create a new refreshing record. The duo created a new club banger that is hard to resist. Inspired by a 1980s rhythm. It is …
