Grim Reapa Flow – [30 Deep Grimeyy] x [NLE Choppa]

The St. Louis native 30 Deep Grimeyy has made a name for himself with his drill-style flow that so many hip-hop listeners are encapsulated by in this era. His style and flow match up perfectly with artists to the like of NLE Choppa, with whom he collaborates with beautifully on their latest project, “Grim Reapa Flow.” The choppy, drill-based flow that Grimeyy and Choppa have perfected reflects with this banger of a track, which unsurprisingly portrays messages of violent feuds and rundowns with opposition, but with a catchy and fun flow that the two have mastered to perfection. The visual, produced by Jolo, is a simplistic piece working around Grimeyy and Choppa in deserted, run-down parts of the city where a track like this fittingly should be shot. However, even with run down scenery and backdrops, Jolo does a fantastic job of incorporating abstract animations and transitions with the materials he’s got to work with. The recently-crowned Lyrical Lemonade 2v2 basketball tournament champion, NLE Choppa, perfectly complements Grimeyy’s flow and delivery, just adding to the already stellar performance by Grimeyy in the first large portion of the song. The visual has racked up nearly 1M views on YouTube in less …

Walk Em Down- [NLE Choppa] ft. [Roddy Ricch]

Two of the brightest young talents in the world of Rap music today are undoubtedly NLE Choppa and Roddy Ricch. Choppa has made a name for himself through an energetic persona, wild lyricism, and uncharacteristic flows that help him stick out amongst the pack. I know it’s probably awful of me, but I know a little less about Roddy Ricch, and I need to change that especially after hearing him on this new single the duo dropped. What I do know about him, however, is he spent so much time with “The Box” at number 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 charts that I couldn’t scroll through my timeline for weeks without hearing about it, so my negligence was at an all-time high. “Walk Em Down” is the name of the latest single that the pair dropped, and it’s quite a spectacle. CashMoneyAP’s skills are in full effect as he creates a beat full of acoustic guitar, swinging 808s, and trap percussion. NLE takes the hook where he uses a melodic delivery to pave the way for an overly catchy basis for the entire track, before repeating the phrase “Walk Em Down” in a manner that’s sure to get stuck …

Go Stupid- [Polo G] ft. [NLE Choppa] & [Stunna 4 Vegas]

If you haven’t heard of Polo G, NLE Choppa, or Stunna 4 Vegas by now, you need to catch up with the times immediately. Polo G has proved time and time again that age doesn’t matter when it comes to rapping, and he’s done this through songs and albums that have set the streets on fire. NLE and Stunna have both been coming up rapidly as well, and although I’m much more familiar with Choppa than I am with Stunna 4 Vegas, their latest offering proves just how talented they really are. When it comes to their latest track “Go Stupid”, all three talents are on full display over a beat with heavy piano chords, almost overpowering bass, and a somewhat futuristic melody. Polo kicks off the song with his telltale drill-adjacent flow, talking about how he has nothing but new and improved music coming in the future. This is hard for me to fathom personally considering all of the already impeccable offerings he has already delivered. Stunna sort of yells his way through his verse, overlapping certain line to add layers and depth. NLE brings all the energy that we know he can as he discusses growing up in …

Freaky Dancer – [18Veno]

It always amazes me how young and talented rappers can get nowadays. One of those rappers that’s caught my eye as of late has been South Carolina teenager 18Veno. He doesn’t even have any songs on DSPs and he’s been putting up some real promising numbers across different YouTube curating channels. This method has become popularized by rappers such as Young Boy Never Broke Again and NLE Choppa and many other young rappers in this lane. It’s a smart route to take you to have a fan base in which is dying to see content from you and you’re forcing them to catch you on your Instagram or YouTube Channel. One of my favorite songs and videos to run back by 18Veno is “Freaky Dancer.” 18Veno works close with producer Neekobaby who is under Jetson’s Spaceboy imprint so there shouldn’t be any shortage of beats. Watch the visuals for 18Veno’s “Freaky Dancer” below.

Untold – [NLE Choppa]

NLE Choppa took the rap world by storm last year with his hard-hitting instant classic song “Shotta Flow” and hasn’t really slowed down since. He managed to stay on the radar of rap fans all over the country and after releasing his debut EP Cottonwood towards the end of December, he clearly hopes and plans on being a mainstay in the industry. Speaking of Cottonwood, NLE is back in the spotlight with the release of a music video for the opening song of the EP “Untold”. If you didn’t already know, NLE played the game of basketball in his life before music, so this visual is without a doubt a nod to his first love. It takes place in a pitch-black gymnasium, and the only thing that illuminates anything is spotlights moving around in random directions. With these random spotlight flashes, you can catch a glimpse of shadows, dancers, and basketball players, with NLE going crazy with his dance moves throughout as well. What I like about the song itself is the fact that even though I love his typically uncharacteristic style, this song sounds more classic and trappy than his other releases, so it’s cool to see that he …

From Cottonwood to the Universe: NLE Choppa Unleashes His Debut

At the beginning of every new year, the prospect of the first new artists of the year that will emerge in a major way is always exciting to watch. 2019 saw a quality crop of emcees find stardom, but none came blazing on the scene quite like NLE Choppa with his breakout hit “Shotta Flow”. The song was undoubtedly Memphis in every way, a city that has been known for putting out some of the hottest artists of this decade. Choppa follows a strong lineage of artists from the south that have carved their own lane, but Choppa’s star might be shining brighter than all those before him. Even at a young age, NLE Choppa has been able to channel his crazy life experiences and focus them all on his debut project Cottonwood. The release of this is an important step for Choppa as he has been building up to this point the entire year dropping hit after hit and focusing on a single model that other artists should be paying attention to. Choppa has faced his fair share of difficulties this year, culminating in his Instagram account being deleted mere days before the release of his debut EP. Even though the …
