Beam Part 2 – [Payday] ft. [Jackboy]

Although it’s still quite early on in her career, Payday has been making some unignorable moves in recent memory. She has a very smooth, nonchalant cadence that comes off as playful and almost elementary at times in all the best possible ways, and her uniqueness, when compared to other counterparts in the music world, has stood out to fans all over the country. Obviously, if you’re familiar with Payday’s plethora of hits, her most notable song is most likely “Beam”, a jazzy, lighthearted offering that is probably her biggest hit to date. Although this might not be my personal favorite song by Payday, it’s still an undeniable success that fans have eaten up, and when I saw that she was teaming up with Florida’s own Jackboy for a remix to the record, I couldn’t help but tune in as soon as it dropped. While I love the remix without a doubt, I was even more excited to see the Mikey Rare-directed music video, and I couldn’t wait to share it with you all as well. Opening up in an arcade of some sort after hours, a janitor is cleaning the place as flashes of Payday cruising around on her skateboard …

Trench Baby – [Lil Zay Osama]

Chicago-based rapper Lil Zay Osama has been in my rotation heavily the past few weeks since the release of his 15-track album Trench Baby. The melodic rapper has been on my radar for a while, so naturally, I added the project without hesitation when it was released, but it was not until a week after the album’s release that I was able to start peeling back the layers of the project and put into perspective the emotive and chest-aching energy that reverberates throughout the album. With stunning features from G Herbo, Doe Boy, Lil Tjay, and Jackboy, Lil Zay Osama recruits an eclectic group to help bring this project to life and add even more emotional weight to the already biographical nature of the project as a whole. Some of the stand-out songs on the project include the highly popular “61st to 64th,” “Soul Cry,” “Ballin Dese Bitches” and “Shooters.” Each song brings something special to the table while remaining concise in the overarching theme of struggle and triumph. Lil Zay Osama is in no way new, but his presence and overall presentation on his latest release still carries that initial spark that drew us all in. Listen to Trench …

Gardner Express – [Pressa]

Canadian artist Pressa just dropped a new EP and it’s unequivocally fire. Titled Gardner Express, the record pays homage to the The Gardiner Expressway, which is a major municipal East-West highway in Toronto. Representing his journey to make a name for himself, the project travels via the songs on the EP to the city’s main core. Naturally maturing over time, Pressa details how he eventually built a considerable following outside of Toronto, while collaborating with some of the hottest talents in the United States. Featuring Taliban Glizzy, Jackboy, D-Block Europe, Sleepy Hallow, Sheff G, and Flipp Dinero, Gardner Express employs authentic street references with a touch of drill. Sonically the EP’s production implements addictive 808-dominant melodies that make the record suitable for multiple venues. Be it the whip, the club, the speaker, or casual listening, you simply won’t regret pressing play on this project. Each of them bangers with plenty of replay value, there are seven songs total for a duration of 18 minutes. If I had to pick favorites, it’d be “O.T.M (Out The Mud),” “Head Tap,” “Dracula,” and “Blackberry Zap.” “Out The Mud” is a confident bass-heavy track where Pressa flaunts his newly acquired status, while boasting that his throwaways are better than other rappers biggest …

Lost Ties – [Jackboy]

Anyone who reads the articles I write somewhat regularly at all knows just how much love and respect I have for the Florida Rap scene. Although a lot of the artists might have a similar accent or drawl, most of them find ways to differentiate themselves and make their music stand out in order to differentiate themselves from their counterparts. I listen to some of them almost religiously while others I have a lot of catching up to do, and Jackboy is one of the artists I definitely need to learn more about. I haven’t listened to him a ton, but I know that needs to change based on the few offerings I have tuned into considering he has continuously impressed me time and time again. His most recent single is titled “Lost Ties”, and it does a great job of putting his defining qualities on full display while also bringing out another side of the rapper that we don’t always see. The beat begins with various touching, emotional piano keys that create a foundation for a more meaningful story to be told by Jackboy. Soon enough, crisp, rattling percussion and effective, hard-hitting drums come into play and add a …

Critical Condition – [Jackboy]

Florida artist Jackboy has been making some serious noise over the past year or so, he has made a name for himself to the point where he is well known by many people all over the world and he’s even up for nomination for this years XXL Freshmen Class. Today, Jackboy is appearing on our website with his brand new music video for “Critical Condition” featuring YFN Lucci. This song is super hot to say the minimum, whenever you get two artists of this caliber on the same song, magic is going to happen, but the music video made it that much better to me, shout out to Drewfilmedit for doing a great job here. Watch this brand new music video below!

Cardigan – [Don Toliver]

Prior to late last year’s Cactus Jack label collaborative project JackBoys, I had never really paid too much attention to Don Toliver, unfortunately. I had heard the name and knew he was buzzing in the music scene, but I never took the time to really just sit down and listen to his music. After hearing his contributions to that tape, though, I knew I had to tune into everything else he had to offer because of how out of the box and interesting his voice is. Luckily, as I was making an effort to dive further into his other music, he announced Heaven or Hell, his debut album that came out in March. I haven’t listened to this project all the much to be completely upfront, but I did listen as soon as it released, and I was thoroughly impressed with what he was able to put together. I previously understood why he was buzzing all over the industry, but this album just confirmed my suspicions. One of the standout songs on Heaven or Hell, at least in my opinion, was his song “Cardigan” which now received a brand-new music video treatment. The beat is comprised of a very transient, …

No Cuffing – [Cameron Airborne] x [Jackboy]

As South Florida continues to cement itself among one of the top hotbeds in hip-hop, Cameron Airborne looks to expand his name and brand along with it. His latest single, “No Cuffing,” is a South-Florida smash, featuring another rising star in Jackboy. As the title insinuates, Airborne and Jackboy spit lyrics of experience with women, and the unwillingness to cuff any of them – as there stardom and lack of trust increases. This summer hit is surely one to gain steam in Florida and beyond, and is accompanied by a bright, loud visual directed by Andrew Colton that complements the banger’s energy. The upbeat piece is a combination of the two artists’ strong-suits accompanied by a high-energy instrumental produced by Airborne in collaboration with K.E. on the Track that allow the two to put their talents to work. Be sure to be on the lookout for Airborne and Jackboy as their names and work continue to rise in popularity throughout their young careers. Listen and watch Jackboy & Cameron Airborne – No Cuffing (Official Music Video) below!    

The Scotts – [THE SCOTTS] [Travis Scott] [Kid Cudi]

Many people wouldn’t find it difficult to open any social media app and see Travis Scott’s name buzzing around on it. Whether it be for his growing sneaker collection, his executive mind of his Cactus Jack record label, or his clothing merch that sells out almost instantly; Travis has his artistry in everything and it really shows. Speaking in terms of his musical ability, he is always known for ushering in new sounds and vibes that many can say were curated and/or inspired by him. While a vast majority of his sound was inspired by the greats before us, he is one of the leaders of the pack to utilize the futuristic wave of music making. After the major success of the Jackboys EP, it was clear that he was not currently interested in working on his own solo release since his Astroworld album is still on repeat and STILL charting today; almost two years later. Having since then providing knowledge and guidance to his label mate Don Toliver on his debut project Heaven or Hell, it was only a matter of time before we saw what Travis would have his hands on next. At last, the fans now feast on the latest single from …

Shake the Room – [Pop Smoke] ft. [Quavo]

It’s beyond unfortunate that Pop Smoke was taken from this Earth way too soon. The young rapper was taking the music industry by storm, linking up with some of the biggest names in the genre and making hit after hit. It seemed like not only was his talent in high demand for fans, but the biggest names in music seemed to be lining up in order to work with him. This is no surprise, however, because his deep voice, intricate cadences, and alluring persona were all components of an equation that inevitably built a star. He had already made some major moves in his rapidly growing career, but it’s a shame to know that we won’t get to see his career blossom into its full potential which would have been quite a spectacle to see, without a doubt. Meet the Woo 2 is a perfect example of his talents, portraying a variety of different sounds that helped put the New York artist on the map. “Shake the Room” was one of the standout songs on the project and featured Quavo. As a recap, chopped up vocal samples, speaker busting 808s, and reflecting hats set a precedent unlike any other song …

Out West- [Jackboys] & [Travis Scott] ft. [Young Thug]

Days before the new year, Travis Scott and his Jackboys collective took the music world by storm after dropping Jackboys, the full label-encompassing offering introducing some new names and cementing some rising stars within the group. Although it was relatively short in length, which was a bit of a letdown considering the hype that was built up behind it, they made every second count and truly made the project worth the wait. La Flame knows the influence and pull he has in the industry, so you know everyone that was included on this project he either vibed with, was friends with, or saw a promising talent that the rest of the world needed to hear. One of the biggest songs off of the album is undoubtedly “OUT WEST”, so I won’t go into much detail about the song itself considering you’ve probably heard it a thousand times at this point. I will mention, however, that any time Travis and Thug are on a track together, even going back to their “Mamacita” and “Skyfall” hits off of Days Before Rodeo, their chemistry is undeniable and always noteworthy. I bring this all up because thankfully they’re back with a brand-new music video …
