4 Month Binge Before Revenge – [wifisfuneral]

Music that’s made with a purpose always seems to reminisce with me for much longer than any other records that are made just for fun, and while these easygoing tracks might be in constant rotation for the time being, they usually get phased out before I even realize it. I just feel like when a musician, especially someone with as much talent as wifisfuneral, makes music from the heart in order to try and get something off their chest, express the emotions they’re going through, or as a way of coping with past tragedies or struggles, I want to listen, learn, and appreciate their courage and honesty, regardless of the outcome. I mention wifi because he just ended a months-long break from music with the release of his brand-new album 4 Month Binge Before Revenge, a 12-song, 25-minute-long effort that really shows him at his best, even with some of the subject matter that had to be difficult to cover. On this project, wifi dives deep into some extremely trying topics that were the result of a recent spiral of misery, self-remedy, and frantic creation, giving into his imperfections as a way to fuel his music, even if it wasn’t …

Eazy True Soulja From Liberty City Is On The Rise With His Track “Super Active”

This year, an explosive amount of artists rising out of Florida have done an amazing job capturing my attention. For some time, South Florida dominated the state’s rap scene, led by artists like Rick Ross, Trina, Kodak Black, and XXXTentacion. However, a few of the newer artists making noise are emerging from different cities we haven’t seen in the past. Eazy True Soulja, also known as “Da Trap Demon” hailing out of Liberty City, is worth your attention this year. His aggressive gritty voice will capture your attention instanstly. Eazy has already captured the ears of his hometown, but now he is ready to build a worldwide fanbase. Earlier this year, Eazy released his EP Voice Of The Trap: Demon Mode, with 8 singles. To support his new project, he debuted the visuals to his popular single “Super Active.” While flexing jewelry, and showing off a fat bankroll, Eazy raps about being active and standing on what he believes. “I wrote the full lyrics with no beat because normally that’s how I write all my songs. A few days later a producer sent me a beat that matched the lyrics to super active. I didn’t have a story behind it. I …

Make You Mine-[Lily Kaplan]

I’m a firm believer that honest music will always see the light of the day, but sometimes it’s not just enough to believe that if you’re not making an effort to create that reality. That’s a big reason why I do what I do; When I first started writing back in 2018, my sole mission was to shed a light on the artists who are making undeniably great/honest music. Today, I’m writing a rare Saturday article to keep in line with that mission of highlighting an up and comer who I believe sincerely deserves it. If you keep up with my articles, then you’d know that there are only a select number of artists who get written up twice. It’s commendable to release a great song once, but what’s even more impressive is  following it up with an equally stunning second. Lily Kaplan is a Miami, Florida native who has made it into our pages before but is now making her second appearance for the release of her brand new song called, “Make You Mine”. I fell in love with Lily’s voice about a year ago when I stumbled on her discography. From the moment you hear her unique and …

mercurymorris – [Blvck Svm] x [Austin Marc]

South Florida and Chicago rapper Blvck Svm connects with NYC producer/DJ Austin Marc for a cold new track titled “mercurymorris.” Serving as the first single off Svm’s debut project with EMPIRE, the song contains Blvck’s familiarly surgical flow over Marc’s 808-heavy production. The eerie instrumental is an excellent fit for Svm’s low-key yet assured rap tone, as he effortlessly spits bars like “new set of Burberry specs from London was flown / the shadow extend to my orbital bones.” Blvck’s ability to craft stylistically chill records with elite-level lyricism is a signature quality of his, to which he’s self-aware via the bar: “The cloth I’m cut from is sewn with thread imported from region unknown / the cotton substantially grown, essentially I’m in a league of my own.” For every [silent] killer-line, Blvck Svm’s trajectory continues to rise on his own terms. Peep “mercurymorris” below!

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 …

Ahhhhh – [wifisfuneral]

Although other parts of the world are more widely renowned for being major destinations for hip-hop artists and rappers, I can confidently say that Florida is one state that has bred a completely different type of musician. So many underground legends have come from the southern mecca, and I would even go as far as to say that the underground movement that later turned into the “SoundCloud Rap” era began there and never really left. The different levels in Florida are insane, including household names like Denzel Curry, Rick Ross, and Kodak Black. Then there are underground legends like the late XXXtentacion, Pouya, and wifisfuneral, SoundCloud era artists that have somewhat died down like Smokepurpp and Lil Pump, well-known yet still not quite mainstream emcees including $NOT, Cochise, and Ski Mask the Slump God, and the list could go on forever. What stands out the most to me is the fact that I could listen to almost any single one of these spitters and not only thoroughly enjoy myself, but be transported back to a different part of my life where they were some of the only people I was bumping. Although some of these artists have careers that are …

Lyrical Lemonade Music RoundUp With GHerbo, GloRilla, Coi Leray, and Goldenboy Countup

Here are a few new singles and projects to check out this week from some of your favorite artists. Platinum-selling Chicago hip-hop rapper G Herbo announced his new album, Survivor’s Remorse, with its lead single “Me, Myself & I” featuring A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie. The Joe Bracero-directed video depicts both artists taking over a classic New York basketball court, overlooking the city from its rooftops, as they trade bars on the hypnotic beat. Herbo discusses the demons and struggles he has been facing since 25, while A Boogie’s melodic chorus speaks on being in a lane of his own. Earlier this year, Herbo blessed us with his single “Locked In”, an emotional tribute to this late brother. With two impressive singles thus far, Survivor’s Remorse is gearing up to be another powerful body of work from the Chicago emcee. In less than a year, CMG artist GloRilla has achieved life-changing milestones after the release of her hit single “FNF”. The viral #FNFChallenge on TikTok generated over 32 million views (and counting) on YouTube and resulted in GloRilla’s acclaimed debut on the Billboard Hot 100. GloRilla’s success has garnered widespread support across the hip-hop community, receiving co-signs from hip-hop superstars like …

Stop It – [Bachi] feat. [Facey]

As artists, one thing that I believe in is never seeking validation from others when it comes to your art. Whether it comes from how you rap a song, the beat you choose to rap on, or even the cadence in which you let your flows out; self-validation is very important when it comes to creating. That is something that Florida-based rapper Bachi kept in mind when creating his latest single, “Stop It” featuring Facey. Produced by Saint Novella, Bachi hops on this high-tempo and intense energy track to let it be known what he’s capable of. While not seeking validation from others, he’s letting it be known just who he is and what he can bring to the table, telling anyone who doubts him to stop it, and come get in tune. Every now and then, it’s okay for a rapper to get on a beat and just talk that talk, speak in that braggadocious tone, and stand your ground on who you are and your ability to shake the game up. Going back to back, Bachi and Facey both have no issue doing so, as they both came on this track together and their chemistry knocked it out …

Future Co-sign, Real Boston Richey Drops Highly Anticipated Mixtape Public Housing

In less than a year, Real Boston Richey has accomplished many notable wins in his career. Hailing from Tallahassee, Florida, the 25-year-old artist’s unique sound is unlike any other artist out right now. His Florida rap slang mixed with catchy bars over Michigan-style beats caught the eyes of major heavyweights in hip-hop like Future, Kanye West, and Yo Gotti. On August 26, Richey debuted his first official mixtape release titled Public Housing. This project features appearances from Lil Durk, Moneybagg Yo, Kodak Black, and two features from Future. “I took forever but itz time now!” Richey shared on Instagram. “Whole lotta Loses, sweat blood but no tears into this sh*t. If you been rocking with me since day one just know this for you ain’t no returning back! Appreciate all my supporters!” The 17-tracklist features production by ATL Jacob. His single “Keep Dissing 2” with Lil Durk has accumulated nearly 10 million views on the music video in less than a month.

Last week, Future gifted him an FBG …

GEEWIZ + 8TEEN – [454]

If there’s two things I love in this world it’s new music from 454 and hydrangeas, and today I’m lucky enough to get both – at the same time no less! This week the Florida plugg phenomenon returns with two self-produced new singles ahead of his upcoming mixtape Fast Trax 3. “GEEWIZ” and “8TEEN” are psychedelic and energetic bangers sporting hypnotic vocals and bright, bass-laden mixes to top off your summertime playlist. It’s been over a year since 454 released his last Fast Trax mixtape in the wake of his debut LP 4 REAL, but since then our hero has had anything but a quiet year. Between dropping a handful of singles, touring with Aminé, and appearing on both the last Denzel Curry album and Tony Shhnow album, 454 has been keeping his momentum strong as we enter the rollout for Fast Trax 3. His music has never felt this polished or concentrated, so if you’re a fan of 454, you may be in for a treat once he finally decides to drop. Until then, you can catch me spinning “GEEWIZ” and “8TEEN” until my ears bleed.   Check out the visual for 454’s “GEEWIZ + 8TEEN” below:
