GWEN STACY 4EVER – [ITSOKTOCRY]

By Danny Adams // 27 Nov 2021

ITSOKTOCRY is one of the most captivating artists in the entire music industry, and if you don’t believe me, just check out any of his countless songs and tell me you disagree, because I’d tell you that you’re factually incorrect. The way he is able to manipulate his voice is unheard of and can’t be compared to anyone else in the entire music scene, and the instrumentals he uses always keep you on your toes because you have no clue what kind of sounds to expect prior to listening in. He is grossly underrated, in my opinion, but his fans know just how special of a talent he is, and I won’t be quick to let that point go by the wayside because he’s just making music in his own lane, and no one else is even close to catching up to him. After a lot of hype was built up around his album GWEN STACY 4EVER over the past few months, the day has finally come, and after tuning in, I can say with the utmost confidence that the wait was well worth it. With 11 songs that add up to just over 25 minutes, this is more than …

Scraps – [BONES] & [Lyson]

By Danny Adams // 27 Nov 2021

It should be no secret to you that BONES is probably the most prominent underground legend in the entire landscape of music, but if that’s new to you, you probably have a lot of catching up to do. Luckily, he is never one to slow down or put his foot on the breaks, and this year more than ever seems to prove that. In 2021 alone, BONES has released 5 full-length albums throughout the year, and with the fact that we’re still a month out from the new year, he might not even be done. Instead of lingering in the uncertainty of what the rest of the year will bring for the Michigan star, I want to focus on the present, and that’s because he just dropped off another full-length album entitled Scraps, but the outcome is anything but a collection of loosies. Teaming up with TeamSESH producer Lyson on this release, he is able to give BONES a plethora of different sounds that bring out his aptitudes and let his skills shine more than ever. I just feel like working with an in-house producer that you have so much chemistry with always yields the best results, and this project …

Bad News – [909memphis]

By Danny Adams // 27 Nov 2021

There are numerous artists in the underground music scene that I think deserve so much more credit than they receive, but their grind is always notable and it’s going to pay off one day or another. When I first dove into this wild and unpredictable underground arena, 909memphis was always someone who I found myself gravitating towards because he had one of the most unique voices I had ever heard, and he knew just how to utilize it in order to bring out the best in himself and his music. At first, I would compare him to Young Thug because of the way he would manipulate his voice and his deliveries, but as I thought about it more, I realized that he was in a lane of his own and deserved so much more respect than is given when comparing him to someone else because he truly is one of a kind. Most recently, I got extremely excited because he not only dropped a brand-new track entitled “Bad News”, but he also announced the release of his upcoming project Whatever It Takes which will gift us with 6 new tracks that I’m overly confident will just contribute to his storied …

Angel Dust – [Lil Xelly]

By Danny Adams // 26 Nov 2021

If you’ve paid attention to any of my articles over the past two years, Lil Xelly should be bumping on your speakers more often than not. He has been one of my favorite underground legends for quite a handful of years and considering the influx of music he has put out into the universe, there is literally no chance for any songs to get stale because there are just so many gems throughout his extensive discography. Whether you’re a fan of his sound or just appreciate his workhorse mentality, there is literally no way you can hate on the Maryland native, and if you do, it’s probably just because you don’t appreciate hard work or a hustler mentality like the one Xelly has. While it can be hard to decide where to start listening with his catalog of music, he has been hyping up his latest project Angel Dust for quite some time now, and even though I know I’m late, I simply couldn’t miss out on the fun for any longer, and I’m glad I finally got a chance to actually sit down and divulge my full attention into this incredible tape. With 16 songs that last just short …

Options – [Lil Eazzyy]

By Danny Adams // 26 Nov 2021

Every day, it seems like there’s a new superstar coming up out of Chicago and putting on for our city, and it makes me so proud to call this place my home. While superstars like Juice WRLD, Lil Durk, G Herbo, Chief Keef, and Lil Bibby are household names and world renown, there are so many other talents making their claim for the throne known, and Lil Eazzyy is one of the most prominent names in the entire city. Obviously, his mixtape Underrated which dropped last year put him on the map and it’s still a project I revisit regularly because it has longevity and is full of hits, but I’m sure his fans don’t need to hear that from me in order to know that it’s true. When he dropped Rookie of the Year earlier this year, I feel like it flew under the radar way more than it should have and it didn’t quite add to his legacy as an artist the way it was meant to, but nonetheless, I think it’s a very solid album and something that deserves so much more love than it received. Nevertheless, Eazzyy is always working, and even though he might’ve been …

For the Week – [Jaah SLT]

By Danny Adams // 26 Nov 2021

Although I haven’t heard too much of Jaah SLT’s recent music, in all honesty, he is someone I’ve been following along with for quite some time now. He is definitely one of the most unique talents in the rap scene, giving us a plethora of different styles that only expand his sonic repertoire tremendously, yet I still think that he’s grossly underrated and deserves so much more credit. Even though I have been a fan for a good amount of time, I honestly had no idea that one of my good homies actually helps manage him, so when he texted me and told me to check out his latest song “For The Week” as well as the LKS Visuals-directed music video, I had no choice but to listen up, and I’m sure glad I did. In the instrumental for this hit, there are some momentous, dominating string instruments that combine with crisp percussion and precise, thumping drums that come together wonderfully in order to give Jaah some more time to shine on the microphone. When he comes in, his delivery is lighthearted and playful even though his wordplay is clever and captivating, without a doubt. He doesn’t seem to truly …

Intimidated – [Kaytranada]

By Danny Adams // 24 Nov 2021

Although it might not be the typical type of music I tend to listen to, Kaytranada is one of my all-time favorite producers, and that’s not a difficult thing for me to say at all. He just always knows how to get the vibes right no matter where you’re at. Whether you’re in a club, at a party, cruising down the road in your car, or hanging out with a group of friends, his music is upbeat enough to want to party, but also low-key enough to just bob your head to as you immerse yourself into the music. Not a day goes by where I don’t listen to a song produced by him, whether it’s an original track put out by him or another song that was released by another artist, he always knows how to bring out the best in the singers and rappers he works with, and his latest EP Intimidated is no different. With just 3 songs that clock in just short of 10 minutes long, this project is a nice little gift that will have your speakers bumping before your very eyes. The first track is the title song called “Intimidated” and features H.E.R., a …

heather – [ericdoa] & [glaive]

By Danny Adams // 24 Nov 2021

I know I just wrote about glaive’s brand-new song “prick” and the video for it just yesterday, but there’s just something about him that I can’t get enough of. His emotion, passion, and energy are enough to get my heart pumping, and the fact that he’s doing this at such a young age is never something I can overlook. Combine his skills with the dense and plentiful talents of his close friend ericdoa, and they’re like a match made in music heaven. eric seems to bring the enthusiasm while glaive seems to bring the sentiment, combining their various skills in one song that is serious always unforgettable no matter what. Sure, we had some singles like “cloak and dagger” or “fuck this town”, but fans knew that something else had to be afoot. That’s when we found out about then i’ll be happy, their 8 song, 15 minute long EP that gifted us with 6 original tracks from. The dynamic duo as well as the two aforementioned records, and after listening to this project numerous times, it’s obvious that this tag team is one that can’t be overlooked for even another second. The third song on this project is called …
