Roy Woods Behind The Scenes Freestyle

It’s hard to know as outsiders looking in on what goes on behind the scenes on tour. Sure, we have ideas that we derive now and then from social media posts or paparazzi, but when we get a true look at behind the scenes footage from a camera that follows around an artist for an entire day, we’re able to come to realization of what their days actually consist of. In this eight minute clip, you see OVO member and Toronto native Roy Woods in a glimpse of what life is like on tour, at least for him, as he waits for his show later that night in Los Angeles with Drake and The Migos. Roy’s exceptional creativity and dreamlike vocals provide for an outstanding freestyle about 40 seconds into the clip that lasts for nearly a minute – and will make you only want to hear more. The video then goes on to show Roy drinking golden Hennessy, rolling backwoods, and then a glimpse of his late-night studio work with MadeinTYO. It’s always interesting to see an artist’s creative processes in the studio and how they different from person to person, and the studio scene Roy creates is a dark …

Look At The Kid – [Madeintyo]

Madeintyo has never failed to give us at least a handful of bangers for the summer over the past few years, and minutes ago he jut released a super catchy record for summer ’19 with “Look At The Kid”. One thing that I love about Madeintyo is just how much has has progressed as a rapper over the years, he has always been raw, but take a close listen to how well executed his verses were on this track & I would argue that’s peak level rapping from Madeintyo. Regardless, he spazzed on this track and I am sure our audience will love it, so smash the play button below! Produced by Supah Mario

Baggy Eyes EP – [Michael Christmas]

This past Friday, Boston’s very own Michael Christmas blessed streaming services with his Baggy Eyes EP, originally released in 2016. It was clearly long overdue, given that it’s a project brimming with well-produced bangers that should be heard by any fan of the relatable and talented Michael Christmas. Baggy Eyes consists of charming and catchy tracks that continue to show off Christmas’s budding personality and humor. The production on here is really impressive, as we get a collection of uplifting and soulful instrumentals, along with some bouncy and melodic trap-flavored beats. Christmas also proves how talented a rapper he is, with some really slick flows and jaw-dropping rhyme schemes supporting his addicting hooks. The nuclear “Drums Might Wake Ya Mama Up” is the hardest-hitting track on the project, and features some dramatic strings during the chorus of the track, along with some flowery and spacey production during the verses. Vintage Lee, who released a single last month with MadeinTYO, is also featured on here and makes this track an overload of charisma between the two emcees. The legendary $ilkMoney is also featured on “Who Cares”. This is a great collection of tracks that stand as some of Christmas’s best work …

Vintage Like Lee – [Vintage Lee]

Vintage Lee is one of those characters whose presence you’re immediately aware of when they enter a room. My first experience with Lee and her music was in 2016, when she opened up at a show I was seeing in Boston. Quickly realizing her effortless style and mysterious, pimp-minded allure, I went home and immediately started doing my research, leading me toward one of Boston’s most promising rising talents and one of my favorite artists ever since. Today, this support comes full circle, as Lee takes possibly her biggest leap yet with “Vintage Like Lee” — a brand new single alongside none other than MadeinTYO. While this pairing may not have been something that many people saw coming, it makes perfect sense that two artists of such natural-born charisma would complement one another perfectly on a song based around their undeniably smooth styles. Atop production from Bizness Boi and Ye Ali, the two ride the hypnotic waves of melody, feeding off of one another’s braggadocious rhymes in the process. Furthering this, the prowess of “Vintage Like Lee” goes far beyond the surface, as their quick-witted chemistry speaks to MadeinTYO’s respected reputation as a talent scout of smaller, star-bound artists. That said, …

Sincerely, Tokyo – [Madeintyo]

We have been covering Madeintyo’s amazing career since the beginning, and today I was very excited to bring you his brand new album titled “Sincerely, Tokyo“. There is a total of fourteen records on this album and after sitting with it for some time now I believe it’s safe to say that this is by far his best project to date, which I understand is a bold comment considering his past tapes but I am positive that you will soon agree with me. You juts simply can’t deny that Madeintyo flashed plenty moments of excellence on this one, he caught flows & created melodies that only he can create, creating styles that I’m sure plenty of other artists will try to imitate. The beat selection on this project was absolutely outstanding, and Madeintyo really showed that he has matured as an artist when attacking many of these instrumentals, certain records like the interlude had me impressed with his lyrical ability, he proved he can do much more than just create a vibe. The features on this album helped take it to that next level, as they come from the likes of 24hrs, Roy Wood$, Gunna, Tinashe and last but certainly …
