Ballin – [JAG]

If you are still sleeping JAG, you better wake soon or you are gonna miss the bus. Already two projects deep in 2019–and building a serious buzz in the process–the West Coast emcee shows no signs of slowing, dropping off an energetic banger in “Ballin.” Here, the Cali emcee’s roots are on display as he fits perfectly with KE On The Track’s boardwork that combines the bounce and knock of a West Coast anthem with a lighter, woodwind-centered backbone.  JAG takes the energy up with some bars (littered with basketball references, naturally). Thanks to his stalwart flow and the hunger in his voice, said bars are more than just lip service. Color, bounce, but a no nonsense, cuthroat feel,Jag can’t miss right now. Cue the NBA Jam voice…”He’s on fire!!”

Girls – [Yung Baby Tate]

At 22 years old, Yung Baby Tate has already been making music longer than many of her peers who are just getting into the game. The Atlanta artist has been making her own beats when she was 13, and she dropped her debut ‘ROYGBIV’ project in 2015. Since then, Tate has been pushing genre boundaries, seamlessly playing with different styles to pave a lane with a sound that’s distinctly hers. This month, she’s come through with one of her most sonically diverse projects yet, dedicated to a subject that’s just as dynamic as the songs themselves. ‘Girls’ serves as a conceptual counterpart to Tate’s 2018 project ‘Boys’, and it’s even bolder than its predecessor. Tate finds her niche somewhere in the middle of bubblegum pop, ATL trap, and retro RnB, bending these genres in a way I’ve never quite heard before. The mix of her influences comes through most potently on highlights like “Bad Girl”–she slips into sticky, sugar-coated melodies before going bar-after-bar in a punchy verse delivered with cutthroat confidence. Her natural explosiveness is matched by the production all throughout the project, as distorted bass and buzzing saw synths cut jagged edges around her smooth vocal style. While the …

Mudboy – [Sheck Wes]

From star basketball player, to viral hitmaker, to Cactus Jack and GOOD Music’s most promising signee, Sheck Wes’ career has already been a whirlwind. Today, the 20-year-old rapper delivers his highly-anticipated debut project, ‘Mudboy’, marking another milestone point for the Harlem-native. At its core, ‘Mudboy’ functions as a come-up album, charting the young talent’s success up to this point and projecting where he plans to go in the future. Wes fills the project with exactly what you might expect from him stylistically at this point, relying on his 0 to 100 vocal presence. In a moment’s notice, he can go from whispered mumbles to full-volume howls and already iconic ad-libs. While he does try to switch things up, 14 songs is just a lot of Sheck Wes to take in at once. He’s at his best when he’s rapping from experience, whether he’s painting the walls of his Harlem upbringing with grimy resonance or repping his endeavors in basketball and high fashion. He strikes a good balance on the album’s closer, “Vetements Socks”, tempering his jagged-edged energy to suit a more low-key, atmospheric beat. Although it gets sidetracked by some songs that just feel like filler, ‘Mudboy’ still contains glimpses …

JAG’s performance on each and every track speaks for itself, but man this tape had some star studded features including Cozz & Reason, Ty Dolla $ign, Sy Ari Da Kid, Trey Songz, Problem, Garren, Gizzle, Romell, Fasodd, Ye Ali and lastly Mir Fontae.

Feels – [WebsterX]

A longtime favorite on our page, WebsterX just dropped off an exciting new single. On “Feels”, the Milwaukee native engages in a battle against unoriginality, letting off a full-on verbal attack aimed at the fakeness he sees in the world right now. His verses move like a pure stream of consciousness, transitioning between ideas as if a listener were literally watching his mind unfold in front of them. Each line carries the jagged edges of unfiltered emotion, as he raps, “I did not write this song at all—it wrote itself” on the track’s hook. An epic beat switch comes at the 2-minute mark, as the track erupts into a guitar-driven, angst-ridden rap ballad. Just as you catch the vibe of this second movement, WebsterX ends the song abruptly, leaving us wondering what his next move may be.
