Misunderstood – [Yung Bans]

The journey that Atlanta native Yung Bans has traveled over the past few years to get to this point is unlike anyone else, he has overcame advertises that are unimaginable, and although I won’t go in-depth about those any true Yung Bans fan knows he has came a long way to this release of his brand new debut album titled “MISUNDERSTOOD”. This project is a total of nineteen tracks in length and it contains some of the best material Yung Bans has released to date hands down, that’s what I was expecting though, this was a long time coming and I knew that Bans would have some serious heat tucked away for this special moment. Although Yung Bans was clearly the shining factor on this project, there are multiple star studded features from the likes of XXXTentacion, 03 Greedo, Young Thug, Gunna, YNW Melly, Lil Tjay, Slim Santana, Future, NAV and last but not least, Lil Durk! I enjoyed each and every single one of these records provided, but a couple of my favorites include the infectious track “I Don’t Even Crip” as well as HOT record “Ready Set Go”. Stream this brand new album via Spotify below and if you like …

Watch Young Thug’s brand new interview with No Jumper

Young Thug is arguably the most popular rapper in the entire world right now, so when I saw Adam22 from No Jumper sat down with him for a new interview, I was glued to my computer screen. You will find these two speaking about plenty of topics including his come up, how his life has changed, his “don’t give a fuck” attitude, being an innovator, his relationship with Future, the potential he sees in Juice WRLD, Lil Wayne, freestyling, working with Lil Nas X, Lil Keed being next up, finding Gunna early, how he wanted an OG to teach him when he was coming up, what it’s like being a superstar, social media, his latest record “The London”, touring with J. Cole, why he dislikes revenge, the Taylor Swift situation, his first deal only being 10-15 thousand, his forthcoming album, running for president and more! Don’t sleep on this interview, press play below.

Big Homie Mad – [Young Papi]

Young Papi has a potential hit on his hands. His newest single, ‘Big Homie Mad,’ produced my Feezie Productions, is an anthem dedicated to getting money regardless of what anyone else thinks. He’ll get his fit off, cash a check, and snag someone’s daughter wall within the 3 minutes it takes to listen to this banger. With crooning abilities similar to that of Young Thug and Gunna, he sings about investing in himself: Spending his bag and making sure to get it back. He knows his worth and his talent, and makes sure others know his worth. “Maybe it’s Maybelline, this life was made for me.” Coming straight out of Milwaukee, Wisconsin, the young rapper is hungry in his delivery and will most definitely be on heavy rotation for me this summer.

Anybody – [Lil Keed] ft. [Lil Duke] & [Gunna]

YSL’s Lil Keed really delivered on his new album Long Live Mexico. I love his energy, the production is diverse, and his hook work is absolutely stellar. The whole album is well worth your time (so is the video he dropped for “Ride The Wave”) but there’s one song I keep coming back to more than any other, one I think is really special, and that’s “Anybody.” The Lil Duke and Gunna-assisted track incorporates everything that I love about the project, as a whole. The production hits hard but definitely has a lighter, airy feel thanks to the string-based foundation. It’s perfect for Keed and he absolutely floats, especially on the hook; that cadence he has is perfect. His voice sounds even better paired with Duke’s deeper vocals, and Gunna is a great bridge between Duke and Keed. From the production to the hook and the features, “Anybody” connects on every level and is all the convincing you’ll need to give Long Live Mexico some attention.

Die A Legend – [Polo G]

In my limited inventory of writing I have for this website, Polo G has found his way into two of my pieces. And yes, Polo is from Chicago and gains great traction and support from consistent site viewers – though that is not why I am writing this article today. The reason is because his latest project Die A Legend, (which released last Friday, June 7th) is just that – legendary. Even the first time I listened through, I instantly knew this project would be one of my favorites of the year. I made it through the entire album without skipping, stopping, or changing a song once. And then I listened again, and again, and again. I’ve now listened to its entirety roughly a half dozen times and that doesn’t include the individual tracks I’ve picked out to listen to on spontaneous occasion. It includes the steam-rolling hits like “Pop Out,” “Finer Things,” “Battle Cry,” and “Pop Out Again (feat. Lil Baby and Gunna),” which have already made their way atop the charts – some even prior to the album releasing. And then mixes in masterpieces like the two-minute firestorm that is “Lost Files,” and brilliant interpersonal storytelling in “Chosen 1.” My …

Cash Shit Freestyle – [Reese LAFLARE]

Reese LAFLARE flew into my rotation hot with his catchy collaboration with Gunna in “Drip Like That” a few months back. In the first of his pieces I’ve heard since, “Cash Shit Freestyle” exceeded my lofty expectations. The dreamy melodic instrumental Pierre Bourne enables Reese to spaz, freestyling for over two minutes with impressive lyricism off the top such as, “pump your breaks, got two sticks on me like a nintendo.” LaFLARE, an Atlanta native, has a poetic pattern that seems to mesh fluidly with Pierre Bourne’s instrumentals just as many other ATL born rappers do. “Cash Shit Freestyle’ was only released yesterday, though it’s found its way onto several of my feeds a multiplicity of times already – which can only make one think it will continue to gain steam, reaching 3k streams in less than 24 hours since posted on SoundCloud. Reese has the combination of a fluid flow and precise articulation that will allow him to continue to thrive in the Atlanta music scene in which he has already solidified a significant spot in.

Land On The Moon – [OSBS]

Today we have a duo that goes by the moniker of OSBS (On Sum Bull$h*t) who are making their first appearance on our website with their brand new music video for “Land On The Moon”. These guys D5 (Darral Scott) and Smoke One (Jordan Gendron) are based out of Crenshaw in South Central Los Angeles and they create music that has elements of gritty southern rap as well as west coast rhyme structures at times. These two have been on a extremely successful run that includes dropping a memorable EP titled No Cap that landed some big features, working with DJ Drama to joining Gunna on his Drip Or Drown Two Tour, and the release of this visual looks to be the next step for them.

Watch Young Thug’s brand new interview Nardwuar

Young Thug recently hit the stage at Rolling Loud down in Miami over the weekend, and the GOAT Nardwuar got a chance to chop it up with him for a few quick minutes, and we just got blessed with the final product. You will find Nardwuar asking Thugger (along side Gunna) about plenty of subjects such as Danny Glover, old photos of himself, being included in the Boston Museum of Fine Arts, The Flintstones and more before he had to go join Travis on the stage. Check out this short but entertaining clip below!

Home Body (Remix) – [Lil Durk] ft. [Teyana Taylor] [Melii]

Lil Durk’s latest single gets a sultry remix with the assistance of Teyana Taylor and emerging crossover rapper-singer Melii. The remix to Durk’s “Home Body” which was released off of his latest project, Signed To The Streets 3, originally featured Gunna and TK Kravitz, but now Teyana leads in the sexy new remix with her trademark sultry vocals that play cleverly against the subtle bass and kick drums in the song’s production. Durk’s original verse is placed in between Taylor and Melii providing an ear-perking contrast between the sultry vocals of the newly added verses. Melii closes the remix out with a slightly more upbeat flow that finds its lane between the grit that Durk provided and the softness of Teyana’s harmonies. The reimagining of the original album cut proves itself to be a compelling addition to the Only The Family label-boss’ discography. If you’re feeling the new remix of Lil Durk’s “Home Body” make sure to show him some love by following on Twitter and Instagram.

Bad Habits – [NAV]

I have been a fan of NAV for a couple years now so I am happy to bring our audience his brand new album titled “Bad Habits”! One of the first things that I noticed about this tape is how long it is, coming in at twenty four tracks it’s a pretty lengthy listen but trust me when I saw that it’s worth it. There are quite a few star studded features that are included on this album from the likes of Meek Mill, The Weekend, Young Thug, Gunna, 88GLAM, Lil Durk and last but certainly not least, Future. Of course though, NAV was the main shining factor throughout this entire tape, making for what will be considered one of his classics when it’s all said and done.
