Dancing with the Devil – [Babyface Ray] ft. [Landstrip Chip] & [Pusha T]

At least once or twice a week, I feel like I have the luxury and the pleasure of writing about yet another magnificent Michigan rap release, and I haven’t even begun to think about growing tired of this trend. I am simply dumbfounded by just how insanely talented each and every emcee is in this region, whether I’m listening to straight lyrical geniuses like Babyface Ray, Icewear Vezzo, and Rio Da Yung OG or more uncharacteristic spitters like BabyTron or Teejayx6. Simply put, there is never even close to a shortage of remarkable music coming from the northern music hub, and I couldn’t be more impressed with the sounds that have been brought to life over the past couple of years. Out of everyone, one of my favorite artists is undeniably Babyface Ray, and while I don’t think this is an unpopular opinion for most, I still think he is grossly underrated based on the amount of indescribably amazing content he has put out for fans. This is just the beginning it seems, though, because my excitement went through the roof once I found out that he has a brand-new album entitled Face dropping in two short weeks on January …

This Side – [Vory] feat. [Landstrip Chip]

Dreamchasers founder and head-honcho Meek Mill has been doing an amazing job pushing the brand and the label forward as a collective. Showcasing many sides of talent, Meek has been able to capture all angles of rap, and now R&B, on one label. One of the most talented pens and vocalists in the game right now would have to be the Dreamchasers signee, Vory. The Houston-born and Louisville-raised artist started out making a buzz on his own before garnering the attention of many other artists in the game. He would then go on to receive a Grammy for his contributions on The Carters Everything Is Love album,  as well as contributing his pen on records from Bryson Tiller, Rich The Kid, and even Drake. Today, he is premiering his latest visuals for his song “This Side” featuring Atlanta-based artist Landstrip Chip. With the release of his self-titled album Vory that released in December of 2020 being so successful, Vory knew that he eventually had to push some of those bigger records off of there. That said, here we are with “This Side” being his single of choice and an amazing pick. The Sara Lacombe-directed visual takes place in the strip club, while Vory and …

Def Jam’s Young Gun TJ Porter Talks Representing for Harlem, Having a “Celebrity” Manager, His Sentimental New Single “Do You Care” and Upcoming Debut Album Voice Of the Trenches

Def Jam Records is in something of a youth revolution. The most iconic label in hip-hop history may be turning 35 this year, but it has its eyes newly fixed on the future, with some seventeen newly signed artists set to showcase on next month’s release of Undisputed, a compilation recorded over several days last November in Los Angeles. Front and center among the Undisputed lineup is Harlem, New York’s latest ambassador to the music world, 18 year old TJ Porter, who in only a couple of years in the game has begun to serve notice of his intention to follow in the formidable footsteps of the greats that put his neighborhood on the rap map, including Mase, Dipset and ASAP Mob. The young MC has versatility on his side: early singles, like 2017’s “Trust Issues”, “Quiet Storm” and “Can’t Wait” offered bar spitting life lessons; last fall’s Pregame, his release first with Def Jam, found TJ in melodic mode – celebratory on the breakout “Glowin’ Up” and boastful on “Tricky”; while his most recent EP, No Disturbance­, released only two weeks ago, goes dark on “The Don”, admits to relationship infidelity in “Cheated”, and claps back at doubters on …
