Tuesday (Official Music Video)-[Jahmed] feat. [Ruby Red]

It’s the top of the week, which means it’s time for me to get y’all up to speed on anything and everything that you may have missed over the last few days. As the year winds down and Christmas gets closer, there are going to be a plethora of artists who are going to drop some heat, so it’s evident that we don’t overlook it. An offering that you most definitely need to take time out of your day to peep is by an up and comer named JAHMED, who we’re super excited about. If you haven’t heard the name, then it’s about time that you do a deep dive into the Pomona native’s artistry. Back in September, he enlisted help from up and coming duo, Ruby Red to give us a phenomenal track called “Tuesday” and today, they’re all making it into our page for the release of the video for it. This was one of those videos that had my attention from the very moment I pressed play. The beautifully directed visual feels like something out of a movie as it exudes life and light in every shot. JAHMED & Ruby Red are just some cool guys and …

Necrotic Grip – [Do Not Resurrect]

For those of you who have followed along with my articles since the very beginning, well over a year ago, you know that my musical taste varies almost too much. I’ll go from jamming out to an old school soul song right into a demonic anthem full of screams and aggression, and I won’t have a second thought about it. People also often come up to me and ask who some of my favorite artists are thinking that I’ll have some incredibly intelligent answer, but I often disappoint them by saying the music I personally enjoy is definitely not going to blow them away unless they go into it with a completely open mind and remember not to judge before truly giving it a chance. As far as one of the more obscure artists I listen to goes, I found out about Do Not Resurrect early last year and he immediately turned into one of my all-time favorite underground acts. It was an easy transition considering I had been an admirer of acts like $uicideboy$, Night Lovell, and others for years prior, but there is just something even more captivating about DNR that I am fully encapsulated with. If you’re …

Zuccenberg – [Tommy Cash] ft. [$uicideboy$] & [Diplo]

I might not be overly familiar with Tommy Cash whatsoever, but after doing a little research, it turns out that he just might be one of the most interesting people in the entire industry. Being from Estonia, a place that I personally don’t think I could point out on a map without some direction, it can’t be easy to break out of what I imagine to be a pretty small local scene and make your way overseas to America, yet he did so and has been tearing it up ever since. Most recently, he dropped off a song featuring $uicideboy$ and Diplo called “Zuccenberg”, and although. I never imagined this group to get together and collaborate in my wildest dreams, after listening to it, I realized it’s exactly what I needed in my life right about now. The beat was tag teamed by Diplo and Umru, opening up with some thunderous, speaker-busting 808s that are combined with screeching, electronic synths, and chattering hats that provide a perfect base for what I’ve expected from $uicideboy$ yet not exactly what I would ever image Diplo to bring to life. Nonetheless, Tommy begins with the hook, showing off some charismatic energy with some …

A Man Rose from the Dead- [Scrim]

I understand that there was a boatload of new music that dropped Thursday night including projects from Future, Polo G, Yung Lean, and many more. While these may overwhelm the media and take all of the attention from most other music that released, the most under the radar project by far is Scrim’s debut solo album A Man Rose from the Dead. Up until this point, Scrim was one half of the infamous duo $uicideboy$, and he continues to be a part of the group of course, but this is the first real taste we have of any sort of solo music from him or his counterpart Ruby. Typically, when artists split off to do their own thing, it’s because they’re maybe tired of having to constantly share the spotlight with the rest of their crew or they believe it’s time that they get to have their own complete control over the creative freedom within their music. For Scrim, neither of these things is really the case. He needed to do this for himself and his own sanity. Those of us who know the constant struggles he has never been shy to talk about in music and interviews, know that …

Fuck Your Culture & Scope Set – [$uicideboy$]

After being completely spoiled in years past with the mass amounts of mixtapes and EPs that the $uicideboy$ would release every single year, this year seems kind of slow for them. After Live Fast, Die Whenever, their Travis Barker collaborative project, dropped at the beginning of the summer, we haven’t gotten much from the duo other than a couple loosies and a few guest features. All of these appearances were fantastic and much appreciated, but we just didn’t have access to the quantity that we’ve grown used to. That’s okay with me though, because it means that they’re working more on their quality and making more all-encompassing projects rather than just pumping out content to prove that they can. Before the year ended, I was so excited to see that two new singles had dropped, one being called “Fuck Your Culture”. Not straying away from the always edgy and blatant themes they discuss and portray, this song is right up the alley of classic $B fans. With a spooky and haunting beat containing their distinct pitched down and chopped up samples in the background, Ruby and Scrim go to work. Scrim experiments with a different voice in the first verse, …

Watch Billie Eilish’s brand new interview with Nardwuar

Billie Eilish is one of the biggest young superstars in the music community, and Nardwuar is a walking living legend, so I had a good feeling walking into this interview. Be prepared to hear these two speak about plenty of stuff such as rare old Beatles toys, going to a Green Day show with Ruby at nine years old, graduating at fifteen, her mother & the rest of her family, Kurt Vile, the sounds her chains make, 101 Dalmatians, her parents meeting on a flight to Alaska, their manager Danny and Nardwuar even surprised her with a Hilary Duff sleeping bag. Check out this brand new interview below.

UNSIGNED – [Cal Scruby]

Ohio native Cal Scruby has recently dropped a project that has been years in the making. After years of grinding in the music industry machine, Cal has finally freed himself and created an album that is the total culmination of his experience trying to rise in a cutthroat system that tends to favors the few. On UNSIGNED, Cal has finally come into his own and spits incredibly witty bars that outline both the struggles he’s faced throughout his career and where he plans on taking things now that he’s in complete control. The jump Cal has made in terms of his artistry from his old records to now is astounding. When talented young artists begin their careers, signing with a major can be the quickest route for the stardom they desire. However, for many of those artists it never quite pans out as they had first thought. This project not only serves as a subtle victory for Cal, but a message to young artists who are thinking about chasing this route before thinking twice if that is the best path for their success. This is the first project Cal has dropped since 2017, it is packed with clever lyrics and unique rhyme-schemes. …

Internet Child – [Manwolves] ft. [Ruby Laporta]

One of my favorite groups of all time is Kids These Days. Sadly, the Chicago group is no longer together, with members like Vic Mensa and Nico Segal moving on to different projects, but the music still sounds as fresh as ever thanks to the heart and spirit in the music. That said, though the music is a little different, I get similar vibes from Manwolves’ fantastic new effort, “Internet Child.” Where Kids These Days ventured more into hip-hop, Manwolves stay more in the rock/alternative realm, but that free, energetic spirit that made me fall in love with KTD is the same, and so is that “big” feel. Though only a six-person band (seven if you include Ruby Laporta’s assistance in the vocal department), you could swear Manwolves had 12 members thanks to the array of horns, a big chorus, and some crashing drums, all of which blend together so well (particularly towards the culmination of the song) to create a big sound brimming with life and energy. “Internet Child” is a fantastic addition to their lengthy catalog of soul-stricken music, so check this one out below and let us know what you think in the comments!
