Taylor Gang Signee Fedd The God Releases Latest Single “Fortnite”

While I didn’t have the opportunity to watch Fedd The God in person at our Summer Smash festival, after watching mini-clips of his performance, I became a fan. As a new artist signed to Wiz Khalifa’s Taylor Gang imprint, the rising artist has grown so much in a short period. Music wasn’t always a part of his goal growing up. In 2005, Fedd experimented with his first song “Shoplifting” on Giant Eagle. It wasn’t until the loss of a friend, and fellow rising artist Trillzee, that his passion for music began to grow. His music is influenced by real-life experiences, which led to the rising rapper fan base to grow. This month, Fedd The God is an opener for Hip Hop top-charting artists Wiz Khalifa and Logic Vinyl Verse Tour across the US. During one of his performances, he shared a song titled “Fortnite”, which quickly became a fan favorite. The energetic track features his signature vibrant sound that his fans have grown to love. “The inspiration behind this single was better connectivity with the fans & my children just loving this song.” He shared. Check out the video to Fortnite below.

Ghetto Gods (Deluxe) – [EarthGang]

Music is all about unleashing your creativity and giving yourself an outlet to express yourself, and even when artists approach their process in different fashions, there is no denying their skills if they can make something that shows off their originality rather than just copying off of someone else who has done something great in the past. Whether you’re rapping about the same things over and over or switching things up, there is no taking away from your conceptions if you’re able to do it in a way that we’ve never seen before, and EarthGang is a duo that knows this better than anyone. I mean, they’re just so versatile as we’ve seen that it doesn’t matter if they hop on a thrilling, effervescent instrumental or a softer, slower beat because regardless, they’re going to go absolutely crazy. Sometimes they talk about more sentimental or serious topics while other times they just cut loose and have fun while living in the moment, but regardless of what vibe they are in prior to hitting the studio, magic will be made 10 times out of 10. Back in February, they finally released their long-awaited album Ghetto Gods which boasted 17 songs, ran …

Pose – [Guap] ft. [Wiz Khalifa] & [Curren$y]

Guap has always been on a roll ever since he entered the music industry, but that streak has seemed to heat up a couple thousand Scoville ever since he dropped the “dad 4000” part of his name and took a simpler route. He is one of the smoothest emcees in the game right now, and if I had to name a couple of other easygoing, effortless artists, the first ones that come to mind are Wiz Khalifa and Curren$y, and I don’t think there’s any way for you to debate that fact. Well, this terrific trio just teamed up for Guap’s latest song “Pose” which is set to be featured on the Oakland native’s upcoming EP that’s set to release in just under a month. On July 8th. Produced by Drew Banga, this track is one of the chilliest songs you’ll ever hear, and the instrumental sets the perfect standard for that vibe. Wiz wastes no time cutting to the chase as he raps about money and weed, two of the things that he not only knows best but two things that made him famous beyond belief. Guap takes over the hook and the second verse, showing off his charismatic …

Step Back – [Duke Deuce] & [Juicy J]

In the year of our lord 2022, who is making bangers like Duke Deuce? Who is moving with such a sacred reverence for their hometown’s past while also pushing that very sound forward? Above all else, who is making aux-ready anthems, able to turn the function from a 0 to a 10 at moment’s notice, like Mr. Deuce himself? The answer: nobody – and his latest collaboration with fellow Memphis legend Juicy J is the perfect testament to this. Released earlier this week, Memphis future and past collide on “Step Back”, a bop so polished you can see your face its reflection. Featuring production from Dallas’s Lil Ju and Juicy J himself, “Step Back” might not be the first collaborative effort between these two Memphis kings, but still, it stands as a refreshing dose of Southern trap energy – a love letter to one of the finest styles of music to ever bless our undeserving ears. Both Duke Deuce and Juicy J are fresh off their recently released projects – Duke Nukem and Stoner’s Night with Wiz Khalifa respectively – so it might be a minute until we get new records from either of them, but that won’t stop me from …

Sincerely Face – [Babyface Ray]

It’s safe to say that the city of Detroit is no longer an up-and-coming music town because all of these artists have proven themselves so many times in such a short period that I now consider it a mainstay in the rap world, and I couldn’t be more excited about that. It’s not going anywhere anytime soon, and the emcees from Michigan are constantly pushing new sounds, flows, and personalities, each one seemingly getting more intriguing than any of its predecessors. Babyface Ray is obviously one of the biggest names in the city, receiving eye-opening numbers on every song he drops as well as co-signs from people like Tyler, the Creator, Future, and even Kevin Durant, amongst many other renowned names. His price only continues going up on a weekly basis, and that is going to skyrocket this Friday thanks to his upcoming album FACE which will include features from G Herbo, 42 Dugg, Wiz Khalifa, Icewear Vezzo, and even Yung Lean, who is the guest I’m most fascinated by, amongst many other talents. We only have a few more days of patience before we get to dive into numerous new tracks from Ray, but he is known for not …

Yo!88 – [Tm88] & [Pi’erre Bourne]

Not long ago at all, I saw that Tm88 and Pi’erre Bourne teamed up to release a single entitled “Block Boy” as well as an amazing music video, and even though this song was an all-out hit, I didn’t know what to expect in the future. All I knew was, these two remarkable talents worked better together than so many other collaborators in this day and age of music because, with Pi’erre’s production background, he knew all the strategies Tm88 was using and knew how to capitalize on them effortlessly. To my pleasant surprise, I had absolutely no idea that they were planning on teaming up for a full collaborative project, but when I found out about this incredible news today, I didn’t waste a second and went directly to Spotify to check it out. The title of the project is Yo!88, and with 11 songs that span over 32 minutes long, there isn’t a single second that goes to waste, making it an album that legitimately has zero skips. Aside from this, there are only two features included, but considering they’re verses from Wiz Khalifa and Young Nudy, they’re inclusions that are powerful and obviously impressive. Highlighting just a …

Deez Boyz – [Cam Wallace]

Following up on the success of his single with Wiz Khalifa “Retail”, Cam Wallace is still cruisin’ along with full speed ahead and he’s on his way to the top. Something that’s been admirable about Cam, is that he managed to be from Houston, yet learned how to adapt to any and every style of rap around him, regardless of where he is from. Doing such a feat is something that is hard to do, and he keeps that momentum up here as he releases his visuals for his latest single “Deez Boyz”. If one thing is for sure, we know Cam Wallace is gonna come with some bars and some catchy lines to come along with it. On “Deez Boyz”, it is full of quotable lines and bars that will make you have to run it back after hitting the stank face at it. “Deez boys ain’t ready, I’m wit’ it” he raps, as he lets the world know that he is ready, trained to go, and wants all the smoke from any rapper who wants to try him. The campaign that Cam Wallace has been going on as he drops off visuals from his EP These Perfect Moments has …

Shrimp Sauce – [Rollin’ Ajay]

Atlanta-based artist Rollin’ Ajay is back in our pages today with a new visual for his track “Shrimp Sauce” where he woozily talks his stoner-shit over a slow-burning instrumental that is stripped-back enough that he is able to just flow at whatever pace he wants without being overshadowed by the instrumental. The rap game collectively has gotten much too high to still have the popular ‘stoner-rap’ of like say a Wiz Khalifa or Curren$y in the mainstream, but I am surprised that more artists aren’t approaching the topic in the same way Ajay does, not overly flexing or being overly corny and trite, he just shows you the life he lives in the most laid-back way possible. I am really eager to see what Ajay has up his sleeve next for us.

Retail (Remix) – [Cam Wallace] feat. [Wiz Khalifa]

Houston-native Cam Wallace has been an artist that I have been championing a lot lately on this platform. Three’s just something about his approach to his artistry and the way he crafts his music that just reels me into his releases every single time he drops. Back in May, we covered his Wiz Khalifa-assisted track “Retail (Remix)” and it has been going crazy ever since its release. Spotify stats shows that the song has now earned over 1.2 million streams on that platform alone. To briefly recap the track, Cam and Wiz Khalifa (whose name is also Cam) trade verses over a chill instrumental as they both talk that talk. Today, he is back on our platform to drop off the new visual for his collaboration with Wiz Khalifa, “Retail (Remix)”. “Wiz always brings the ultimate vibes to any record he’s on. When I heard his approach to his verse, I was like ‘oh this is perfect’. He literally added another layer of cool to the record.” – Cam Wallace For the visuals, Cam Wallace sits sideline at a fashion show as he watched many beautiful ladies cross his path, admiring them all. As Wiz gets his verse off, he walks …
