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 …

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 …

Over the past few months, ILLYMINIACHI has been releasing some of the best music of his career. With a unique voice and approach to his music, there has never been any question that ILLYMINIACHI stands out amongst the pack. His laid-back delivery matches perfectly with complicated production that lines up for something that sticks with you after listening. As we move closer to the release date of his highly anticipated project CAMPAIGN, ILLY blessed us with another single titled “13 G’s” which is another upbeat banger that is set to test the bass in your speakers. The last time we heard from ILLY, he was venturing into new territory with a UK Drill influence. On his latest release the Vancouver artist performing at his best, riding the pocket over astronomical production by 13Graeme. While the past year has seen travel come to a standstill, ILLYMINIACHI has spent a good portion of his time in Nigeria working on music. ILLY has always been one to pull from a multitude of influences, going back home is sure to have unlocked some different sonics that we will hear in the not-so-distant future. To accompany the single release, a video was released to bring the …

Andale – [Peso Peso]

By Jack Gregory // 7 May 2021

Galveston County, Texas artist Peso Peso continued his prolonged and prolific run he has been on over the past several months yesterday with a Cinco De Mayo release for his track and visual “Andale” which is one of my very favorites in a catalog that is dense and from quite a unique perspective. Peso skated over this bouncy and danceable instrumental with his trademark streetwise lyrics and the occasional jump over to Spanish, walking the beat from the second he started rapping. After just one day the visual is looking like it is going to be one of his biggest releases yet which is a testament to his perseverance, talent, and ability to connect with the Latino community that is tragically underrepresented on a national hip-hop scale, but Peso Peso seems poised to kick that door down. Since being released from jail he has been a workhorse and is showing zero signs of slowing up anytime soon and his music just continues to get better track by track. Keep an eye out for Peso Peso’s project of the same name, Andale, which is set to drop any day now.

Shell Jumping – [Young Crazy] [Icewear Vezzo]

By Jack Gregory // 7 May 2021

Virginia rap has a storied and rich history of many great artists and producers to come out of the Hampton Roads area which is made up of Newport News, Hampton, Chesapeake, Portsmouth, Virginia Beach, and in the case of Young Crazy who is making his Lyrical Lemonade debut today, Norfolk. Young Crazy has been consistent for many years in his output and has been a household name in his area’s underground scene but has matured greatly since he started releasing music and seems poised to be the latest artist from this region to make a run. He like so many other artists recently has been embracing the ‘Detroit’ wave, but I have zero problems with that at all, as Detroit’s rapid-fire style puts artists rapping skills up to the test every-time the beat turns on and Crazy has stepped up time and time again, flexing his grimy lyrical abilities and ambitious mindset that are each certainly the by-product of hard times and a desire to never go back. He paired up with scorching hot Detroit artist Icewear Vezzo for his latest track and video “Shell Jumping” that shows off Crazy’s unique vocal tones and sarcastic and menacing shit-talking skills.

In Between! – [Fliphoneshwty] [CashCache!]

By Jack Gregory // 7 May 2021

Clarksville, Tennessee’s Flipphoneshwty is back today with a new visual for his sanguine new plugg-track “In Between!” where Flip skates over Cashcache’s bubbly instrumental with his slightly autotuned vocals and unique flows as he is not shy at all about changing up his cadences, which are all some of my very favorite moments from this song. Flip came together with Noah Stenhouse for the well directed new video that shows off Flip’s charisma, and I am looking forward to hearing him develop his own unique sound more and more as his vocals are already quickly recognizable and his beat selection is first-rate. Keep an eye out for Flipphoneshwty as he continues to make more and more of a name for himself within the plugg-universe track-by-track.

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 …
