Never Left – [Lil Tecca]

By Danny Adams // 7 May 2021

When thinking of the new generation of music filled with new faces and names constantly popping up left and right, Lil Tecca has seemed to stand the test of time. Obviously, it has only been a couple of years since he took the music scene by storm and at such a young age, I don’t know if anyone truly expected him to be able to keep up with the massive amounts of hype he first created for himself, but it’s clear that he hasn’t even had a second thought about any sort of pressure, and he continues to fill the gigantic footsteps he has in place for himself. As we gear up for the release of his highly anticipated second mixtape, We Love You Tecca, he has been working with the hitmakers over at Internet Money and dropping a couple of singles to garner even more excitement around the project, so expectations couldn’t be any higher. Most recently, he dropped his song “Never Left” which is an absolute banger in every sense of the word, and he kept the momentum going by teaming up with Declan Kyle to shoot an unbelievable music video for this hit. Utilizing a purple hue …

HELLSING – [ITSOKTOCRY]

By Danny Adams // 7 May 2021

If there’s one artist in the. Underground that I think has been consistently making some of the best music in the entire world for years and years, it has to be ITSOKTOCRY. The Denver native has not only created an insane legacy by himself, but he has aligned himself with such a dexterous group of other artists that it seems like there’s nothing he can’t do if he puts his mind to it. I legitimately never get even remotely tired of hearing any of his songs, and this is mainly due to the fact that his voice is so pliable that he can make any sound he wants, reminding me of an almost more versatile Young Thug which is as high as my praise can get. Although there has been a brief hiatus since he dropped new music considering he was putting in work on the music video front to continue to promote his unbelievable project Poshboy 2, he decided to bring that break to an end with the release of his latest record “HELLSING”, and it’s even better than I could have ever anticipated. Produced by neet.ro and 1177, our ears are met with some mischievous, Dracula-like synths that …

Love Hurts Feelings – [7ru7h]

By Danny Adams // 7 May 2021

Ever since I found out about Huntington, West Virginia native 7ru7h a few months ago, I have heard nothing but rave reviews from fans all over the world. Most recently, when I saw his latest release “Love Hurts Feelings” pretty much going viral, I had no choice but to tune in. Opening up, you hear the strums of a very emotive guitar melody that 7ru7h ends up introducing his vocals on, starting out with a very passionate, almost melancholic delivery that is full of pain and heartache. Although his voice is powerful and as honest as ever, a deep, pungent 808 enters into the scene about halfway through, elevating the bounce as well as the energy of the instrumental which then seems to rub off on the singer, ultimately adding up to another unbelievable offering from the rising star. Considering he predicted this track to be a hit from the jump, he also teamed up with T Aubrey who shot a miniature movie for this record, and the results are simplistic yet complementary in all the right ways to bring this offering to new heights. As it opens up, he is sitting down in a cemetery with his back to …

Ski (Remix) – [DC the Don]

By Danny Adams // 6 May 2021

Just a few weeks ago Young Thug’s 300 entertainment imprint Young Stoner Life dropped off their highly anticipated collaborative album entitled Slime Language 2. With some absolutely massive features and some even more unbelievable verses from the label’s stand-out stars, it’s hard to choose a number one highlight, however, it’s pretty clear that with Thugger’s “Ski” challenge dance going viral, that might just be able to take the cake. While all of these other rappers, artists, and fans are making videos dancing along to the song in their own unique and creative ways, LA by way of Milwaukee artist DC the Don decided to kick things up a notch and create an entire remix of the record, completely outdoing anyone else’s efforts thus far. Although his sound is much more rock/punk-like than the original song, it adds an awesome differentiation to the track while DC also shows off his unbelievable musical skills. Let’s just say, just when you thought the song was being overplayed due to the fact that you saw it and heard it everywhere you looked, DC put such a spin on it that it almost sounds like an entirely new record, and that’s something I’m beyond grateful …

February – [Jay2]

By Danny Adams // 6 May 2021

Earlier this year, Chicago native Jay2 dropped off a project entitled Send Heartss which was a 13 song, just over half-hour-long tape where Jay wore his heart on his sleeve and truly revealed himself to the world. With only two features (Bari and BOS), the brunt of the project was on the shoulders of Jay and while this might be a daunting task for some, he instead saw it as an opportunity to share his heart and soul with fans, and they definitely ate it up. Although we’re a few months removed from its release, Jay decided he wasn’t done having fun with the album and decided to continue its legacy with the release of an awesome new music video for his song “February” which featured production from the one and only Luke Almighty and it also happened to be one of my favorites off of the project. Recruiting Blue Butterflies to direct this miniature movie, the scene opens up as Jay is sitting at the dining room table eating a meal with a lovely lady who seems to be his significant other. While many couples enjoy their meals together, there seems to be this tension between them as he …

Walk In – [Pouya] & [Lu Baby]

By Danny Adams // 6 May 2021

Out of all the originators of a new wave of music that many might call SoundCloud rap, I have to say that Pouya was one of the very first trendsetters. While it seems like since he first began his music career, some other artists who were influenced by him have taken their own direction and almost created a negative stigma based around that term due to a lack of substance or creativity, Pouya has never given in and has consistently created some of the most diverse and incredible music in the entire rap genre, leading him to be one of my all-time favorite underground legends. Most recently, the underground underdog teamed up with Lu Baby, a rising artist who I honestly know nothing about and struggled to find information on him after searching on Google, but after this big moment in the spotlight, fans are going to start flocking in his direction immediately. “Walk In” is the name of the record they dropped, and it was produced by both Rocci and Maika Maile who utilized some thick snare drums, rattling percussion, and a smooth melody that sounds almost like they sampled “Ms. Jackson” by Outkast, putting their own spin on …

Detroit Flow – [FastMoney Ant]

By Danny Adams // 5 May 2021

Over the past couple of years, it seems like as more and more artists come up, everyone seems to kind of stick together and root each other on. Whether you’re from one of the coasts, the South, or the Midwest, people seem to draw influences and inspiration from one another to both pay homage and add something new to their arsenal of aptitudes. While Michigan seems to be having its moment in the spotlight, as they very well should be, it seems like artists from all over are giving them the respect they deserve and I’m all here for it. Although it has been out for a few weeks, at this point, I was just put onto FastMoney Ant and his latest release “Detroit Flow”, which obviously pays homage to one of the biggest music cities out right now. I was honestly somewhat shocked that I had never heard of Ant until now considering he’s from the Englewood neighborhood of Chicago, but you can bet your life savings that he’s going to stay on my radar moving forward after hearing this hit. Opening up with an obvious Michigan-stylized instrumental, the church bells and rattling percussion place you right in the …

melatonin – [Zac Greer]

By Danny Adams // 5 May 2021

Over the past couple of months, Overcast has become one of my absolute favorite music video production companies. Not only are they making some of the most creative visual to date, but they’re working with some of the most promising, underground, and even certain undiscovered talents that the world needs to know about. While I might’ve gotten into their offerings from hyperpop visuals and their work with artists like ericdoa, midwxst, glaive, and brakence, I have been introduced to multiple other acts such as XIX, lilspirit, koi, and most recently, Zac Greer. Although I have known about Zac ever since I began to watch their visuals, I somehow didn’t realize exactly how unbelievably talented he was until his most recent song “melatonin”. When this track dropped not very long ago at all, I was consumed with not only the upbeat, bouncy instrumental and Zac’s incredible vocals, but I was also captivated by the way he was able to share his story about the hardships of a relationship that fell through his fingers because I think that’s something so many listeners can relate to on a very personal, melancholic level. That’s why, when I found out he was teaming up with …
