BabyK Osama Shares Before I Break Through Ep

BabyK Osama is a rising rapper from Jacksonville, Florida who deserves your attention this year. With so much new talent coming out of Florida, the 19-year-old has developed a unique style unlike anyone else. Writing became an outlet for BabyK while he was incarcerated and led to him debuting his single “Michael Phelps Son” upon his release. Shortly after, he released his next tape BabyK 2, in early 2022, featuring the notable single “No Drive By’s”. The Simple Stupid Records signee consistency has already created an impressive catalog in a short span. On September 9, BabyK Osama shared his sixth new project since 2020 Before I Break Through, with features from Yungeen Ace, Doe Boy, OMB Peezy, and Jdot Breezy. This project has something to offer everyone with heavy-handed drill songs, somber and reflective cuts, and party-jumping records. “I had “Dirty Dancing” planned out for a while and when I dropped it as a single, it didn’t do what I think it should’ve––so I decided that Ace would go perfect on the remix,” he emphasized. “So, we got it in motion and it came through exactly how I expected it to be. This Fall, I got plans on dropping at least …

OMB Peezy Unleashes Gangsta Grillz Mixtape

Today (Aug 19), OMB Peezy debuted his highly anticipated Misguided Gangsta Grillz mixtape. Hosted by DJ Drama, The 16-track project, which is the official follow-up to Peezy’s 2021 offering Too Deep for Fears, includes features from G Herbo, NLE Choppa, and Morray. The Alabama-born rapper linked up some of the biggest producers in the game such as Murda Beatz, Hitmaka, and HicksMadeThat to create a masterpiece. “I came up with the name Misguided from real-life experiences. Looking back at my come-up, I realized that I was being misguided by people I was looking up to as a youth,” He stated. “They weren’t doing it on purpose, but they were still misguiding me. I wanted to stop that cycle and have kids from the community look up to someone with something motivating to say. I know the kids look up to rappers, and we hold much influence on the youth.” Along with his project, the 25-year-old artist released the visuals to his single “Real Shit” featuring Morray. Directed by Kevin Wright Jr and assisted by Justin Clarke from LVTRRAW, the video opens up with a powerful scene of people getting baptized in a river as Morray’s emotional hook takes over. Both …

Well Sed-[Seddy Hendrinx]

Coming fresh off the success of his Gangsta Grillz tape Well Sed, Seddy Hendrinx has been making some major moves in the game in 2022, and isn’t showing any signs of slowing down yet. Seddy has been more visible in the spotlight, and his name has been circulating in conversations on who will be the next artist to make it to the top. That said, it’s only right that he had to keep his foot on the gas and keep this momentum going. Premiering the intro track of the same name, Seddy blessed us with the visuals to “Well Sed”. Directed by Decat and creative directed by crossvision, Seddy Hendrinx cameos DJ Drama, OMB Peezy, and many other prominent acts in the game, as Seddy recreates iconic scenes from the movie Belly. Produced by Sosa & Toodope, “Well Sed” serves as the perfect introduction to the life of Seddy Hendrinx. Delivering crisp auto-tuned vocals over soothing guitar riffs, “Well Sed” sets the vibe right for what was to follow on the rest of the tape. Check out the visual for Seddy Hendrinx’s “Well Sed” below!  

The 13 Tape 2 – [Jugg Harden]

Over the last year, I’ve been more acquainted with modern-Detroit hip-hop than I ever thought. An acquired taste, the motor city’s style has left a mark on my library. This includes several artists, but most notably as of late, Jugg Harden, who just blessed his listeners with the latest installment of his “13” series in The 13 Tape 2.  A 15-track tape, Jugg packs several different punches as his versatility swarms listeners from every direction. In certain songs, like “Rude and Ugly” for example, Jugg delivers with classic Detroit style. Others, like one of my favorites, “Space,” give different energy, with a melodic piano sequence that brought out some unique flow I hadn’t felt from Jugg yet.  I could go on and on, from top to bottom, about each track on this project, but written words on a blog can only do this art so much justice. I will however delve out my favorite tracks; “Rude and Ugly,” “Space,” and “On My Momma,” though I don’t think my opinion should have any influence on what listeners should listen to first.  Jugg continues to elevate his name beyond the confines of the midwest, with his stream numbers both consistently impressing and …

The Commission – [Icewear Vezzo] ft. [Peezy] & [Payroll Giovanni]

When I first heard about the Michigan rap scene, I remember writing about artists that I had no clue who they were, but I just loved their vibe and couldn’t help but spread the word however and whenever I could. I didn’t even know half of their names, so if there were a few emcees on a single song, I had to do research and look them up to understand who was rapping at what point in the song. Clearly, if you have been following along with my articles for more than a year, you know I have come a long way because I probably know too much about them at this point, but I just can’t get enough of the music coming out of this scene, and out of everyone Icewear Vezzo is not only one of the best, but he’s someone that I think should be credited with putting the city of Detroit back on the map with a new face after the rest of the country just labeled the Motor City with Eminem and no one else. His upcoming album Rich Off Pints 3 is set to drop in just about a week on June 29th, and …

Too real – [King Von]

I know I have been writing a ton about the late King Von as of late, and I also recognize that I typically mention how he was taken from this Earth way too soon and his potential was snatched before we could even see what kind of massive shoes he was going to be able to fill, even more so than he already proved. While I always believe these things and will forever know they’re true, I don’t want to mourn any longer because he left such a legacy behind that needs to be celebrated, and not questioned in ambiguity. This past Friday, Von’s estate dropped his album What it Means to be King, a 19-song album that I have been bumping all weekend long, and I don’t see that stopping anytime soon. While every single verse that Von delivers proves why he was a diamond in the rough in the music industry, there were tons of other legendary emcees who joined in to spit a verse or two including G Herbo, 21 Savage, Lil Durk, Fivio Foreign, OMB Peezy, Tee Grizzley, and many others, each of whom definitely make a splash on an already impactful project. I personally feel …

Pull Up – [2] [Peezy]

Detroit, Michigan’s 2, possibly better known as his more SEO-friendly moniker TcGangTwo, is making his debut in our pages today alongside Peezy who is nothing short of a Motor City legend at this point and is as well known for eating features as he is for much of his solo music at this point as he always delivers a memorable performance even with his guest verses. FastLifeBolo brought the quick-paced visual to life capturing the lavish lifestyles of both 2 and Peezy who have an obvious chemistry both in the visual and on the song. I am glad to be introduced to 2 with this visual as he, like so many other Detroit artists, balances swagger, ambition, and sense of humor in a nonchalant fashion that is infectious over beats. I really hope to hear more from him, as well as Peezy, more for the rest of 2022 and it doesn’t seem like Detroit will be relinquishing their throne anytime soon.

The Vulture – [Jay Montana]

The increase in regional rap’s diversifying of sounds has lead to a lot of new recent trends in sound, from Brooklyn to Memphis to Baton Rouge and of course Detroit, the way people rap is more than ever reflecting the part of this country they come from, and that is especially becoming the case in Mobile, Alabama. However Mobile is much more than your standard regional outpost of music with a cool local scene or a couple names making noise in the industry, and that could not be further from the case. The city has produced bona fide stars such as Yung Bleu, NoCap, or Flo Milli, and plenty more artists that are easily identifiable in the mainstream but have more underground, cult-like followings with OMB Peezy and Rylo Rodriguez, and there are plenty other names as well that are worth mentioning for their contributions to the region’s overall sound, but none have been quite as innovating and prolific as Jay Montana, who has given his fans seven mixtapes already since picking up the mic in 2019. He has continued off of the sound that NoCap and Rylo Rodriguez first popularized and has continued to build off of elements of …

Stay Dangerous – [Taleban Dooda] ft. [Dee Watkins]

Not too long ago at all, Florida’s very own Taleban Dooda released his debut album Fallen Angel, and fans have been eating it up ever since. Throughout the 17 songs that span just under 50 minutes long, Dooda gave listeners not only an insight into his life and a variety of different talents that we might not have known about prior to this project, but he also gave us countless abundantly clear reasons as to why he’s such a different artist when compared to some of his other Floridian counterparts. While some rappers from the southern state can tend to fall into the same lane and just aren’t able to differentiate themselves, Dooda makes sure that you know exactly who he is and what he brings to the table. One of the standout songs off of the project had to be “Stay Dangerous”, an absolutely remarkable track that features fellow Florida artist Dee Watkins, so you could only imagine my excitement when I saw that there was a brand-new music video for the record. If you listen to any single one of Dooda’s songs, you know that violence isn’t necessarily something he flaunts, but it’s something he uses as a …

Shake Back – [Jay Montana]

Mobile, AL rapper Jay Montana is heating up and is back with a new visual for his single “Shake Back” where he teamed up with DylVisual for the direction and editing who creatively captured Montana, helping him create a memorable video to his track and all at once capturing charisma, intensity, and even humor in the scene where fellow Mobilian OMB Peezy holds up a surprisingly pinkishly-tinted Fanta as Tana’s eyes bulge at the darkness of the beverage before quickly cutting back to him dancing. It is these types of moments that make music videos so endearing towards artists and when done right simultaneously allow the artist to both flex and reveal some of their personalities to their fans that are often hidden by menacing or stand-offish demeanors. Jay Montana’s bag of flows will never cease to amaze me and in less than a year he has been able to both master the southern-fried sound that has become inextricably linked to Mobile by other artists while still surpassing them artistically by proving with song after song that he is comfortable at any flow or any tone despite many of his peers who struggle to differentiate themselves from fellow rappers despite …
