Trim – [Lil Zay Osama] ft. [PGF Nuk]

Lil Zay Osama has been a legend in Chicago for more years than I could probably count, but it seems like, over the last few years, he has really blown up more than ever before. It seems like anyone who matters in the rap world here is on his side, and anyone who doesn’t ride with the Windy City spitter is behind the curve. Although he has come across my radar for a while, it wasn’t until recently (in the grand scheme of things) that I really started to pay attention, and I am sure glad I did. Zay has worked with the biggest names in drill music including Lil Durk, G Herbo, and more, but he has also collaborated with superstars not necessarily classified in this subgenre like Icewear Vezzo, Benny the Butcher, Sada Baby, Sheff G, Jackboy, Lil Tjay, and even Sean Kingston, amongst way too many others to count. His connections don’t stop there, though, because especially recently, he has been tapping in with some of Chi-Town’s most prominent young icons including the DCG Brothers, Fastmoney Ant, and even PGF Nuk, an emcee who is considered to be one of the most exciting up-and-comers in many years. …

One Time – [NAV] ft. [Future] & [Don Toliver]

In the past, I have made my stance pretty clear when it comes to NAV. Simply put, I am just personally not the biggest fan in the world, but I know that he has made a big splash in the music scene and clearly, his track record of working with household names has to mean that he is a force in music in some way, shape, or form, right? I just personally feel like he is just so basic, with nasally melodies, overcompensating autotune, and generic flows, but once again, this is just my opinion and I know that it doesn’t mean anything to him while he sits in his mansion surrounded by the wealth that his music has gotten him. What can be surmised from this is the fact that I don’t often write about his music, but there are exceptions to this, with the most prominent exception being when he features some artists I love in a song. To answer your question, no, I haven’t listened to his brand-new album Demons Protected by Angels, but it is actually on my list because with features like Lil Uzi Vert, Lil Baby, Travis Scott, Don Toliver, Future, Gunna, Lil Durk, …

Lil Jairmy Releases The Second Iteration Of His Gas God Mixtape Series

Over the last few years, Texas has become a hotspot for emerging artists. Rising rapper Lil Jairmy has quickly gone from a local celebrity to now landing a deal with 300 Entertainment earlier this year. Since the age of 3, Jairmy began freestyling with his brother. However, everything changed once he turned 15, and decided to take music seriously. After releasing his first record “Trapped Out” with J Ward, everything became history. After completing a short bid in jail, Jairmy came out bigger than ever before. The first project he dropped was Excuse My Absence in 2019 with a feature from Lil Baby. Once Jairmy released his breakthrough single “No Luggage,” there was no denying that Jairmy had a special talent, and it was time for the world to find out. On September 9, Lil Jairmy released his highly anticipated new mixtape Gas God 2, the second iteration of the Gas God mixtape. This project featured guest appearances from Moneybagg Yo, EST Gee, Future, and the late Lil Keed. He also recruited GRAMMY® Award-nominated producer Hitmaka to assist on this tape. “It was great working with Hitmaka. It was a new experience for me but I enjoyed it,” he explained. “When …

Yung POLO – “Gettin Dem Loads Off”

This year, I have written about a few producers who transformed into artists. In my opinion, it makes the artist a double sword because you understand different components of what goes into creating music. Up-and-coming artist Yung Polo from Chattanooga, TN always had a passion for music as a child. His father was a part of a popular group called Reel Tight composed of Tennessee natives Bobby Kane, Bobby Rice, Danny Johnson, and Reggie Long. Watching his father as a child made Polo want to follow in his father’s footsteps. He got his foot into the door by engineering for almost the whole city of Chattanooga. He eventually landed major placements with Lil Baby, Glorilla, Kwony Cash, and more. However, once the rising artist relocated to Knoxville, he began to take his career more seriously. Last month, Young Polo shared his latest record “Gettin Dem Loads Off.” He linked up his producer friend Cuzyn, who he has been working with for the last two years, to create a track his audience can relate to. “I freestyled the whole song and was done recording it within 45-50 mins. I feel like the meaning of this song is for all the hustlers …

India Me – [SleazyWorld Go]

SleazyWorld Go is a name that I heard once a couple of months ago for the first time, and I don’t think a day has gone by where I haven’t come across something that has to do with him, whether its music related or not. He had a few hit singles last year that were brought even more into the spotlight thanks to remixes featuring household names like Lil Baby on the RIAA Gold Certified track “Sleazy Flow” and Offset on “Step 1”, but even while working with emcees of such high stature, Sleazy’s poise is more than enough to prove that he was built to be a star. These songs and the variety of others that I have listened to are extremely hard-hitting and addicting which makes total sense out of his virality over the past few months, but I never expected the greatness that was to ensue on his latest single “India Me”. His vibe completely changes up on this track produced by mickwreacker, KXVI, and SHIMA who provide Sleazy with an infectiously intimate foundation that allows him to showcase his singing abilities. Even with a heavy dose of autotune, his sentiment and genuine persona shines bright as …

SleazyWorld Go Shows Off His Melodic Side With His Latest Single “India Me”

24-year-old rapper SleazyWorld Go rose to stardom in 2019. Music was an outlet for the promising artist to create a better life for himself and his family. Sleazy quickly cultivated a fan base and began to release a series of songs on social media. The first song he ever recorded and uploaded to YouTube was called “Sliding”. This track went viral in his hometown along with “Pass Me The Glock”. Upon releasing his breakthrough hit “Sleazy Flow” life changed for the Kansas rapper in a blink of an eye. The song accumulated 10 million streams and gained social support from Lil Baby, Jack Harlow, and more. Recently, Sleazy released a single titled “India Me”, which is unlike any other track you might have heard in the past. The romantic track showcases his sonic range and versatility with melodic vocals. In the Sam Brave directed video, Sleazy shows off what his idea of a fairytale life with his partner would look like. “I want the world to notice my sound and hear this new wave,” asserts the 24-year-old. “I want to keep breaking barriers and doing what hasn’t been done.” Check out the music video below.

King Bizzle Returns With His Latest Video “Gladiators”

King Bizzle is back harder than ever with his latest single “Gladiators” with supporting visuals to match. Shot by Bcpbrandon, the Chicago underdog came through with his signature gritty bars in front of an abandoned building. Since last year, Bizzle has gotten more consistent and his wordplay continues to improve on each track. Growing up in the Low End of Chicago and having to learn from the streets, influenced his upbringing. Even though Bizzle spent some time in prison, he made the best out of the situation and came out ready to pursue his music career. Dropping Mixtapes with quality tracks like “Single Forever” off the EP Back on my Bully and receiving over 100k views on his singles “Really Stamped” and “Making Assumptions”, it’s easy to recognize why his career is picking up quickly. He credits the likes of Lil Baby, EST Gee, and Yo Gotti as some of his musical influences in his career. This year, you can expect more new music from Bizzle. Check out his latest single below.

Chase Em Down – [Lil Zay Osama] ft. [G Herbo]

In Chicago, the formula always seems to remain the same: either you’re a local talent, a world-renowned hitmaker, or a local legend. Regardless of how anyone else seems to label specific artists, I feel like anyone who is tapped in with the Windy City rap scene knows which category each emcee fits into, and the best thing about these talent pools is the fact that it doesn’t matter which area you fit into because you’re going to get love from the fans in this city regardless. Lil Zay Osama is someone that I think could be categorized in either of the latter two groupings because while I personally believe he has the skills and the charisma to back up this label, it just feels like he is overlooked way too much compared to everything he brings to the table. Regardless of what the rest of the world might think, I know he is one of the biggest icons this city has ever experienced, and bear in mind how he has the connections and support from some of the most recognizable names in the history of rap. At the end of last week, Zay dropped his album Trench Baby 3, a …

Gwapanese-[Nate Husser] x [BabyTron]

Montreal native and LA based rising star, Nate Husser links up with Michigan icon BabyTron for some brand new heat titled “Gwapanese.” The song serves as a focus-track off Husser’s album, ALL TIME HIGH, which contains nine other bangers. Along with BabyTron, ALL TIME HIGH impressively features the likes of Cousin Stizz, LUCKI, Merlyn Wood and Reeves Junya. However, it’s Nate that undeniably sets and maintains the project’s hype all the way through; indicative of his own unique flair. On “Gwapanese,” Husser boasts his ability to flow with multiple voices, which he also displays on “Dwayne Carter Flow;” a frighteningly accurate impression and homage to the legendary Lil Wayne. His varied approach fits the experimentally creative instrumental, which is equally suitable for BabyTron’s signature Detroit flow. Nate Husser is already traversing the world with fluency in ‘Gwapanese,’ and after listening to this record, it’s obvious that more guap awaits his pockets. Watch the official music video below and be sure to stream ALL TIME HIGH in its entirety!

Reaperr Time – [Dr. Grim]

Atlanta’s music scene is going through a unique changing of the guard if you will, as artists who ushered in the last decade of influence and intrigue in the city are either transitioning into mainstream legend status, cultivating a loyal cult following, or in too many cases falling off completely, and all the while, new artists continue to bubble up and push the sound and scene forward building upon what was established before them. All the while we are seeing an elevation of artists who were once relegated to underground or regional status rising to the occasion and positioning themselves to take the next leap into the mainstream and behind them are a fresh crop of artists building upon the sonic success and learning from the missteps and good decisions made by the innumerable artists who have come before them, which for years now has been Atlanta’s advantage over the rest of the south as the artists who first ushered in the era of “trap music” penned the blueprint on how to move in the industry. Today the heaviest concentration of new talent is by far on the city’s east-side, although mostly happening in Dekalb county as gentrification has pushed …
