FLAWLESS LIKE ME – [LUCKI]

I never use the term legend lightly, so when I use it as a descriptor for an artist in any form, I truly believe that they have impacted music in some way or another. While I have been known to describe many musicians as legends, I think that there needs to be a different term for LUCKI because he is just on an entirely different level. The Chicagoan has been in this industry for more than a decade, and when you’re making music for that long without getting any major mainstream looks aside from some articles here or there, it is often looked at as if you’re just trying to hold onto any form of attention that you may have once had. LUCKI is literally the one exception to this thought process, though, because although I believe he will always be underground, his fanbase is even more loyal and supportive than most mainstream acts you can think of. It’s not that he can’t be mainstream, it’s the fact that it feels like he doesn’t want to be, and that was never the goal in the first place. He has the money, the fame, the respect, and the notoriety, and these …

Every 1st – [WB Rhalo]

Of the entire Whitehouse Studio crew WB Rhalo has been the most underrated to me for a while, and perhaps for good reason, as his catalog is largely barren especially when compared to his collaborators like Los and Nutty for example who have almost too many mixtapes to count. Rhalo’s music is nonchalant, armed with a monotone flow and advanced knowledge of the streets, talking dope in code but never masking his unrelenting ambition and permanently itchy palms. Since I first heard him on his unforgettable track “Muthafucka Bitch” I have loved Rhalo’s relaxed matter-of-fact delivery and unique midwestern drawl. His ear for beats is keen and has a pretty distinct sound that he typically favors and I just hope that 2022 is the year we finally get a full-length Rhalo mixtape.

RUNNIN’ – [Mr. Chicken]

Not to make this article overly personal but recently I relocated from Atlanta to Jersey City, NJ, just across the Hudson River from New York City, and naturally one of my first inclinations once arriving was to first try to tap into the music scene here. Now obviously I am familiar with the initial New Jersey wave of the 2010’s with unforgettable larger than life characters like RetcH, Fetty Wap, or Fatboy SSE who all showcased different aspects of a massively overlooked state rich with its own culture and systemic problems. Lately the scene in Newark, derived as a mix of the classic jersey-club bounce beats with a sprinkling of drill-influence that has the city dancing, but I hadn’t yet heard of any artists from Jersey City and very shortly after beginning my search stumbled upon Mr. Chicken who has consistently been leading his city for multiple years now, utilizing a more polished and melodic flow compared to the frenetic and gruff sounds coming from NYC and Newark. His latest video for “RUNNIN’” is a melodic masterpiece with crisp, reflective writing and vocal range that allows Mr. Chicken to express a full range of emotions. I am really excited to …

Bring Em Thru’ – [BabyTron]

If you are still sleeping on Detroit’s very own BabyTron at this point, it’s far beyond the time that you should’ve woken up. He is undeniably one of the most creative emcees from a state that is riddled with individuality and versatile personalities, so the fact that he is able to stand out so much is a complete spectacle beyond a shred of doubt in my mind. I mean, I think moving forward it is going to be extremely difficult to top his song and video for “Emperor of the Universe” because it’s one of those things where when you have a song that boasts 21 different samples spanning over decades of eras of hip-hop, and then you get Cole Bennett to shoot at 21 different scenes on an iPhone, there really isn’t much you can do to beat that, but this doesn’t mean that he has hit his peak, or even came close to it yet. Even with so many lengthy projects out, he still drops new records constantly, so when I saw that he not only dropped a song called “Bring Em Thru’” that was produced by JakeSand, Danny G, and Getta Beats a few days ago, but …

AWKWARD – [Eem Triplin]

I truly love when producers give rapping a shot because they are typically some of the most intelligent, creative, and all-around musically inclined people in this industry, so they know exactly what to make instrumental-wise in order to give themselves something that will perfectly compliment their voice, flows, and overall demeanor on any given song. If you think about it, some of the best and most unique artists in the game began their careers as producers including Kanye, Pharrell, Dr. Dre, Pi’erre Bourne, and so many others, meaning that as long as you don’t limit yourself to just beat making, the world is your oyster. Eem Triplin is a name you may or may not be familiar with, but he is someone whose beats you have definitely heard if you’re a fan of $NOT, because he is the mastermind behind the production on songs like “Revenge”, “Benzo”, and “Davanti”, amongst others, but he has been making a splash beyond his work with the iconic Florida emcee. Thanks to the growing popularity of his production, he developed a passion for rapping as well, citing Tyler, the Creator and Kanye as two of his biggest artistic inspirations, and after seeing his song …

If you need some inspiration to start your week off on the right foot, then allow me to introduce you all to an up and coming artist who is proving that age is truly just a number. dray tyg is a 13-year-old artist based in Ontario, Canada who is hoping to make it big one day! According to dray himself, he writes his own songs, makes the beats and mixes the vocals all by himself which is nothing but a testament to his undeniable talent.

Whether it’s in the production or in his unforgettable vocal talents, there is just so much to love about all of these offerings. My favorite song off of this album has to be the first track, “forever.” as it is the perfect introduction to dray’s entire skillset and passion for music. Each song is unique in their own way, but I …

FRACTURE – [INFAMOUSIZAK]

A couple of years ago I covered UK artist INFAMOUSIZAK when he was first entering the scene, making a big splash initially with his unforgettable and well-manicured debut project DEEP THE NIGHT that impressed very many in addition to myself. He went on from this project to dazzle the entirety of the United Kingdom and becoming one of the very biggest faces in their scene, even earring co-signs from the likes of Stormzy which attest to the actual grassroots buzz his project created, while he made a large mark on America through a heaping-helping of critical acclaim at a time when the US was dazzled by the UK as the British iteration of drill music was reaching a peak alongside Afrobeats which are two of the primary sonic influences in his music. Dance music also clearly plays a large role in his music from the pre to post-production and those influences are distinctly British as the drum and bass sound has seen almost as many variations and evolutions as trap has here in America. Izak’s latest EP fracture is a shorter listen than his introductory project but shows him beginning to mature more as an artist and hone in on certain sounds …

03 Inna Key – [03 Greedo]

Even though I absolutely love my home here in Chicago and everything about the music scene, I definitely have a soft spot in my heart for the West Coast hip-hop scene. There is just so many versatile artists here that I can’t help but appreciate the music they’re making, and the fact that they all seem to support one another for the most part is something that I can’t praise high enough. Although West Coast phenom 03 Greedo is currently locked up for quite a few years to come, he knew he had to get down to business before beginning his sentence and locked himself into the studio in order to consistently release great music that his fans can enjoy during his prison stint. Most recently, he and his team decided it was time to release his latest EP 03 Inna Key which features 3 songs that span over 12 minutes long, and I couldn’t be more excited for this quick hit right at the end of the summer season. Starting things off with the project’s longest track, Pompano Puff produced this record with some rattling hats, a light and fast-paced synth progression, and some thumping drums that give Greedo …

ForeveRolling: Sticking To The Plan & Playing Your Role

Blossoming out of Louisville right now, there’s an artist by the name of EST Gee making high-octane, hard-nosed rap anthems, structured around unforgiving street tales and menacing one-liners that have attracted early comparisons to trap legends like Jeezy. The music and its fast-occurring rise feel inescapable, thanks in part to one name, in particular: ForeveRolling. Having executive produced EST Gee’s last four projects, ForeveRolling is Louisville-based producer whose tag has become synonymous with some of Gee’s best songs like “Lick Back” and “Make It Even,” unforgettable in nature and always followed by ground-shaking drums and fast-paced, machine-gun like energy. Rolling has been there since Gee’s humble beginnings back in Louisville, and now that the two are seeing chart-topping momentum, he’s quickly become one of rap’s most in-demand, up-and-coming producers. Lil Baby and Lil Durk employed ForeveRolling for The Voice of the Heroes-standout “2040,” Moneybagg Yo rapped over a ForeveRolling beat on “GO!,” and the new Tory Lanez and Kodak Black single was a ForeveRolling special. As such, Rolling has landed on three-number one albums in the past three months — that is, after years of grinding away in a small city, not historically known for its hip-hop output. EST Gee · …

hi hater! – [wolfacejoeyy]

Ever since discovering wolfacejoeyy via “xoxo” alongside xhulooo, I’ve kept a close eye out for new releases from the Staten Island native. In the time since, he’s sharpened his vocal skills and deliveries with each new release, cementing his spot with a well-executed EP back in March entitled its just us. Today, wolfacejoeyy hits our pages with his most impressive, focused, and catchy offering to date in the form of a new single, “hi hater!”.
