AUBUDABii – [SEBii]

When it comes to the interesting mind of an artist like SEBii, nothing is normal, but that’s what makes him so great, and a mystery at the same time. I was only recently put onto his music or Hyper Pop in general, if that’s even what his music can be considered, but in my opinion, he’s in a lane of his own that is unmatched by anyone else. On the outside, he might look like a normal person, or at least definitely not someone who would even be remotely capable of making the hits he does, but one look at his slew of releases will have your mind blown. As he gears up for the release of his next project VVSS, I have honestly no idea what to expect from the rising star, but I can say with the utmost certainty that he’s going to deliver some of the most original and unique music in the entire world. In order to appease fans one final time before the project is in our hands, he decided to drop off a single entitled “AUBUDABii”. Clearly referencing the capital of the United Arab Emirates, an extremely well-off country in the Middle East, he’s …

Show Me What You Got – [Lil Keed] ft. [O.T. Genasis]

Last year leading into the majority of this year, Lil Keed has been absolutely killing it in terms of releasing new content. Whether he dropped of loosies, TOC3, music videos, or guest verses, there was once a time where it felt like we couldn’t go a few days, let alone a week, without getting some new Keed in our hands. Although it’s been probably a few weeks since his last release at this point, it seems like an eternity due to his somewhat notorious consistency. Luckily, he’s back once again with a brand-new visual for his record “Show Me What You Got”, a song that recruits O.T. Genasis and is supposed to help spread the word of the deluxe version of his latest full-length effort. Some sort of piano or distorted guitar chords are used to create an unsteady yet constant melody that is brought new life through thunderous drums and rattling percussive elements. As Keed repeats the name of the song in the chorus, his ad-libs are basically screamed in the distance in order to contribute some personality to the otherwise basic hook. To his credit, it seems like he knows just when his flow begins to slightly drone …

Tellin Ya – [Lil Gotit] ft. [Lil PJ]

Recently, I’ve been seeing some stories that mention Atlanta’s very own Lil Gotit following in the footsteps of his older brother Lil Keed, but I have to slightly disagree with this statement. Sure, he’s got a slightly similar sound and he makes hits, but he’s blazing a trail of his own that differentiates himself from his older sibling. Although he took a very brief hiatus after releasing his latest project Hood Baby 2 and some music videos for the effort, but luckily, that break came to an end late last night. He ends his silence with a wonderful new track entitled “Tellin Ya” which also features a friend of his who goes by the name of Lil PJ. A mixture of powerful piano chords and a high-pitched, intergalactic synth creates a fantastic melody that is brought to new worlds with terse percussion and blasting drums, paving the way for Gotit to demonstrate all of his skills while also introducing listeners to some new ones. On the chorus, he delivers one line at a time, allowing animated ad-libs to fill the space in between each bar. He continues a similar cadence into his verse before switching things up briefly, ultimately ending …

Trapdoor – [Melo Makes Music]

Melo Makes Music is without a doubt one of my favorite artists in the Chicago community, he is a unique talent who has the voice of an angel + the style of a runway model. Basically what I’m trying to say is that Melo Makes Music stands out from the bunch, he has the look of a megastar and the talent to match, so I am very happy to bring our fanbase the premiere of his brand new music video for “Trapdoor”. Melo never fails to deliver notable music video concepts and this one was more of the same, it was a visually pleasing video that made the song that much better, which is the goal for any visual. All the signs of new content from Melo are pointing toward a new full-length project that’ll come out hopefully this year, and I am looking forward to it eagerly! Until we get the tape though, put this new music video on repeat + press play here!

Heaven Gates – [Lil Bape]

Lil Bape has been on a steady rise over the past few months. Emerging out of North Philly, he’s continued to improve with every new release, constantly sharpening the iron of his main two strengths: melodies and songwriting. On one hand, Bape’s voice is the vehicle for the emotion in his songs, while on the other hand, his lyrics create the canvas for this to happen, as heart-stricken tales of life in Philly act as the inspiration for each new offering. Today, putting all of this and more into practice, Bape is back with a brand new set of visuals for “Heaven Gates.” Just under 3 minutes in length, “Heaven Gates” begins with an excerpt from a newscast about the shooting of a 16-year old in Philly. Immediately setting the stage for Bape, every lyric there on out is pushed through with heartfelt melodies, which root themselves in reality and create a meaningful ground for the release to stand on. Lil Bape’s music is a reflection of real-life instances, thoughts, and emotions, and songs like “Heaven Gates” are massively impressive expressions of such. For this reason and more, Bape has become a standout name in Philly at a young age, …

Never – [Young Nudy]

Obviously, there is an overflow of unbelievable talent coming out of Atlanta. Despite all of the massive names that have come out of the Georgia capital, Young Nudy has always been one of my favorite artists. There’s just something about his straightforward, unapologetically gritty delivery that gets me every time, and although he might be making the transition from street life to fame, he’ll never forget his roots and the experiences that have molded him into the person he is today. Although he’s fairly consistent with new releases, his latest offering “Never” is yet another wonderful addition to his catalog of music, so I’m more than excited to share it with you. He recruits COUPE to produce this netherworld banger which includes, dark, ominous synths, classic rattling Trap percussion, and punchy drums before higher-pitched, outer space-sounding synths enter into the picture as Nudy begins to spit. In classic Nudy fashion, he talks some of his shit as the beat begins to take shape, giving us a small sliver of what’s to come as the rest of the song unfolds. As he raps his hook, he boasts some nonchalant, carefree lines that are choppy and he even pauses at certain times, …

Hoes Cap – [BEAR1BOSS]

After priding myself on being tapped heavily into the underground music scene, I’m a bit ashamed that I’ve allowed Atlanta native BEAR1BOSS to slip through my fingers for so long. His style is individualistic, his sound is as catchy as it gets, and his personality is simply infectious, and I’ve only known about him for a couple of weeks at this point, so I know there’s still so much more to discover. Although he hails from one of the most notorious Rap cities in the entire country, he almost separates himself from the southern scene by being unapologetically himself and not drawing too much influence from any of his other, more recognized counterparts. In fact, the only thing that makes him even somewhat fit in with the Atlanta music scene is his individuality, because it seems like artists such as Young Thug and KEY! Stick to their unique roots and don’t compromise that for anyone. I know I’m about a week late to his most recent music video “Hoes Cap”, but when I saw it pop up on my Twitter timeline, I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to talk about it. A beyond bubbly beat is created through effervescent synths …

POSHBOY 2 – [ITSOKTOCRY]

I’ve already said so much about ITSOKTOCRY that you’d think it would be hard for me to keep raving about him, but he’s one of the most unique artists in the entire industry that you simply can’t run out of words and praise for the Denver native. Nothing about him is characteristic in the best possible way, and the fact that you never know what he’s going to deliver when he drops something new is the reason why I’ve been coming back for more every time he releases a song, video, or project. His initial installment of POSHBOY was an undeniable hit, and ever since that came out, fans were waiting with bated breath as they anticipated the project’s sequel. Luckily, the wait came to a close late last week, POSHBOY 2 is finally in our laps, and I couldn’t be any happier to share it with you, just like I couldn’t be any more excited for the incredible records that come with the tape. On this project, we’re gifted 12 brand-new songs and a runtime of just under a half-hour long, and every single track packs a punch, unlike anything you’ll hear all year. He opens up on a …

Cuff Jeans – [TyFontaine]

If you’re even remotely unfamiliar with Internet Money at this point, you can consider yourself living under a rock. They’ve taken the music industry by storm which is ironic considering their debut album’s name (B4 The Storm) alludes to the fact that the storm hasn’t even come yet, so I can’t even fathom what’s going to be in our laps moving forward, but just know I’m more excited for the future of IM than any other music I can imagine. TyFontaine is the collective’s frontman, and there doesn’t seem to be a single thing he can’t do. He brings the energy and charisma to certain offerings before slowing up and crooning in some of the most interestingly melodic fashions in the entire scene, and I haven’t heard him attempt a style that wasn’t successful. Basically, I don’t think there’s anything Ty can’t do, and that’s not an over-exaggeration in the slightest. His project 1800 is at the very top of my list of favorite mixtapes that have dropped this year, and I’m not lying when I say I run through it at least once a day if not more. He just shows off the sheer dexterity he brings within his …

Trapdoor – [Melo Makes Music]

Chicago native Melo Makes Music has been one of the leaders in Chicago’s music community for some years now, he is one of the most unique artists out of the city, and today he is back on our website with the premiere of his new offering titled “Trapdoor”. Melo Makes Music has managed to have a super successful year in 2020 despite the quarantine, he had a clip from his “Manifesto” music video shoot go super-viral + he managed to get the young legend KOTA The Friend on the remix to make the track that much better. The brightest part the year for Melo has yet to happen though, as he has a new project coming very soon and it’s easily one of my most anticipated projects to come from the city this year. This new song here finds Melo rhyming over a multi-layered + dreamy instrumental in a soft tone to start the song, but he switched his flow to a more fast-paced approach shortly after, and he continued to experiment with the styles for the entire duration of the track. I am so excited to see what the last three months of the year have in store for …
