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 …

More Than Average – [Taleban Dooda] ft. [Yung Bleu]

Although it has been a few weeks since Taleban Dooda dropped his debut album Fallen Angel, it seems like fans have been going crazy over it. I’m not surprised, though, because even though I’ve only recently become familiar with his music, he has been going crazy and proving that he is one of a kind, even managing to stick out in the rapidly booming music scene down in Florida. In order to keep the album’s buzz alive and well, Dooda and Yung Bleu decided to team up with Joshua Valle to shoot a music video for their hit song “More Than Average”. Opening up in the future, Dooda is slammed on the hood of a police car, glaring at the camera before a message takes us back to two days earlier. Here, Bleu is hanging out in a lavish house surrounded by lovely ladies as he sees on the news that Dooda is wanted by the police for an armed bank robbery. Once he hears a knock on the door, he opens the entrance to see a stealthily dressed Dooda with his girl, inviting him in to help him hide out from the law. While his girl tries on some …

Call Me GT – [G.T.]

Detroit rapper and Motion Gang member G.T. has been setting his city on fire alongside his Motion Family affiliates Babyface Ray and Veeze and is back with a new project that follows his project Merciless that initially put him on the radars of many, but Call Me G.T. is still without a question a coming out party of sorts and could not have released at a more opprotune moment with the momentum of Babyface Ray who is looking like he will be the next artist to explode from the Motor City on a mainstream scale. G.T. is getting closer to his goals with this latest project and standout tracks like “Chosen,” “Joe Montana,” and assisted “Fade Away” help document his constant growth as a musician. Call Me G.T. shows the Detroit rapper at his most vulnerable. The passion in his voice bleeds through over some of his most advanced production so far. Consistency is what separates G.T. from the rest of the pack. You would be hard-pressed to find someone who wants to succeed more than him. In typical Detroit fashion G.T. recruited a very solid list of features for the project including hometown guests own Icewear Vezzo, Veeze, Babyface Ray, the freshy freed Peezy, Baby …

Be This Way – [OMB Peezy]

Whether you pay close attention to the world of Rap music or are just a casual listener, it’s fairly clear to say that OMB Peezy was one of the biggest winners of 2020. He was one of the most consistent artists in general constantly releasing songs and accompanying visuals, yet for some reason, people continue to sleep on him. In order to get the year started off on the right foot, he decided to gift fans with a brand-new song called “Be This Way” along with another music video as well, unsurprisingly. DrumDummie produced this masterpiece, incorporating tickling piano riffs coupled with more poignant chords, crisp, constantly refreshing percussion, and one of the most powerful drumlines you’ll hear all week. Peezy is known for being dexterous and sounding great no matter what style he opts to go with, and this record is absolutely no different. Despite the fact that he decides to use a much more melodic, tuneful delivery, he doesn’t leave his lyricism or bars in the dust, mashing his hasty lyrics with his incredibly moving vocals that can and will give anyone who is struggling hope that they’ll make it out of their situation. In the ShotByCammJBoyd-directed music …

Not A Rapper 2 – [Jay Montana]

Mobile, Alabama has become the heart of the new southern rap movement, powered by the massive successes and trailblazing from artists like NoCap and Rylo Rodriguez who have dominated recent headlines, to artists like OMB Peezy who has been a cornerstone to the melodic street rap movement years before many of his current peers began, and now even female rap supestar Flo Milli who has been dazzled this year with her Ho Why Is You Here? project this year which elevated her into the ranks of other mainstream talent. However amongst this breeding ground for talent and musical innovation my favorite new young artist is Jay Montana whose incredible ability is obvious on his new mixtape Not A Rapper 2 that gives an extensive look at his elaborate skillset and shows him shining just as brightly as some of his home state’s finest. “Don’t Panic” was a single and visual preceding the project and is the first song of his that grabbed my attention from his effortless blend of both clever lyrical ability and innate vocal gifts that allow him to float all over the southern-fried, guitar-laced instrumentals he chooses. Rylo Rodriguez who has been very supportive of Montana thus far joined him on …
