Piped Up-[YKG Hotboy]

While the summer days are passing us by rather quickly, we can’t deny that we can never have enough summer anthems. With so much going on in the world, the anthems that can immediately encapture us and make us want to go do the stank face will always be accepted this way. After the success of his previous street anthem “Another Day”, Galveston Texas’ own YKG Hotboy is back to set the streets on fire once again. This time around, he is here to drop off the visuals for his single “Piped Up”. While not only processing in his lyrical sense and his cadence and flows, YKG also takes another leap here as well as his visuals are looking much more cinematic and really grabs the viewers attention. Credit for the visual game step-up comes from YKG recruiting the director duo Made By James who help him bring this vision to life. Having already racked up 100k+ views on YouTube, it’s very clear that YKG has a hit on his hands, and he is ready for the world to hear it. Watch the visual for YKG Hotboy’s “Piped Up” below!    

eviscerated – [funeral]

Does funeral ever miss? His newest record eviscerated would lead you to believe the answer is “no” – which is true of course, but I don’t think it has ever been more apparent before today. After being placed on Pigeons and Planes’ “Best New Artists” list last month, this week our North Carolina king returns with a new collection of tracks for fans, ten finely-tuned bangers perfect for your weekly rotation of night out. Known for his enviable ability to blend the most delicate and hypnotic elements of hyper pop and electronic music with the most abrasive aspects of glitchcore and hip-hop – funeral’s latest LP eviscerated sees our hero once again flexing his musical ingenuity while playing to his strengths. While 2021’s superplastic thrived using glitchcore’s most intense and chaotic ideas, eviscerated takes a surprising left turn to deliver fans tracks that can only be described as ‘alien’. From the opening synth melodies of “packgotmyeyeslow” to the closing moments of fast-paced percussion on “allyou/hoppedin”, funeral keeps fans on the edge of their seat with off-kilter and hard-hitting mixes that truly sound out of this world. Some tracks like “ionwantthat” and “script” even stray so far left that they find themselves in regalia/plugg territory …

Steelo Brim is best known as the co-host of the MTV series Ridiculousness for over 10 years. The comedian, producer, writer, and actor has always juggled many roles throughout his career. However, the Chicago native decided to embark on his new journey as a musician. Brim began to cruise through the music industry as an A&R & publisher, working with legends such as Nicki Minaj, Kendrick Lamar, Miguel, MikeWillMadeIt & more. On March 17, 2022, Brim’s dreams became reality. He released his debut 13-track project Eldorado Excursions with features from Dej Loaf, Vic Mensa, Fabulous, Buddy, and more. This project is me taking the vibe back to the backseat as I rode on a weekend to Franklin,” says Steelo.  Eldorado Excursions is the beginning of something spectacular for Steelo Brim. One of my favorite songs on this project was My Love ft. Buddy & Arin Ray. Produced by Rob Holladay, this track is an instant summer hit. Between the visuals and impressive punchline from every artist on this song, it’s no wonder why the video racked up 374,899 views in a short amount of time.

MACK – [fourfive]

Over the past two years NYC born and based artist fourfive has risen to the top of his city’s underground scene while gravitating to his own unique sound and style. Fourfive’s background in fashion, as one of the directors of clothing brand New York City Gun Club which is also taking the underground by storm, makes his music all the more interesting stylistically with sleek, expensive outfits, captivating visuals, and a sharp attention to detail which ensures all of his releases are as striking aesthetically as they are musically. His debut mixtape MACK is the first longform release he has unloaded yet and continues to build upon and grow from the many singles he has dropped thus far which have propelled him to the point he is at now in terms of listenership. At eight tracks we hear quite a bit of flexing and flashiness from fourfive that leave you feeling ambitious and stylish while painting a portrait of success and the fallout that follows. Sham, fourfive’s close friend and main producer, supplied the bulk of the production of this project with help from others and created a cohesive set of beats that suit fourfive perfectly and Sham has been …

War – [Almighty Beezy] [Jay Montana]

Nashville by-way-of Decatur artist Almighty Beezy continues a series of collaborations with rising Mobile, Alabama talent Jay Montana with a new visual filmed in Nashville by ZWImaging who is one of many cameramen keeping the Nashville music scene strong and consistent. Mobile’s Al’Geno provided the instrumental which is one of my favorites I have heard from him ever and is accented by a whining electric guitar which is contrasted by an uplifting piano melody and brought together by trunk-shaking 808’s which provide an ideal background for both Beezy and Montana to do their thing with their unique deliveries. I look forward to this pair finally dropping their collaborative mixtape and hope we see more visuals with them soon as they clearly have a great chemistry personally and musically and I look for both of them to have a big rest of 2022.

Another Day – [YKG Hotboy]

It seems as if every other day now, artists out of Texas are becoming more prominent and the Lone Star State is becoming home to a lot of up and coming stars, no pun intended. Being the melting pot of many genres, lots of artists have shown and proved their worthiness in the game, and there is a very high success rate when it comes to those who are emerging from there. That being said, YKG Hotboy is next up from the south, and he’s ready to claim his seat at the table. Today, he is premiering his new video for his song “Another Day”. Produced by Ear Drummer’s own Resource, you already know what type of bangers are made when you hear that “Ear Drummers” producer tag at the beginning of the record. “Another Day” tells a story about what a typical day in YKG Hotboy’s hood feels like. Street rap and storytelling always go hand in hand, and YKG puts it all on full display. The visuals complement the song perfectly as well, as he is essentially narrating a short film of everything he is talking about in the song. from the time he gets up ’til the …

Can’t Make This Shit Up – [Shaudy Kash]

I just cannot get enough of Shaudy Kash’s music lately, maybe because of where I am in life, unsure of my next direction and pensive over which route is best to choose, or maybe it is the large quantity of Detroit music I have been inundating myself with for well over a year now, but whatever it is, I am certain that Shaudy Kash is perhaps the brightest diamond in the rough in his talent-flush city. His maturity speaks volumes calmly and the large quantity of music he has already released and continued to do not only follows suit with his successful musical peers in the Motor City, but also to his personal dedication to his craft as an artist, a title I don’t give him lightly. He is in our pages today with his latest visual release, the title track to his recent EP, “Can’t Make This Shit Up” which was brought to life by the hands of Big4Boogie who works often with Kash and has amplified his reach greatly with his visuals that capture his laid-back pragmatism well. I am sure that Shaudy Kash has a surplus of music for us in 2022 and I can’t wait to …

So Thankful – [Trippie Redd]

In the current day and age of hip-hop music, there are so many copycats and replicas of artists who created a new sound, and because some of these artists aren’t as creative as the pioneers, they have to cling onto a style that works, and I just feel like it takes away from the original idea that was brought to life in the first place. The same goes for videographers from what I’ve seen because as soon as a director pushes the limit and brings something new to the table, everyone just wants to copy their ideas and try to play it off as their own. Going back to artists, Trippie Redd is an emcee who brought something totally new and unique to the party once he broke into the industry years and years ago, and ever since, his influence can be heard amongst so many different individuals throughout the music scene. This is a similar situation as DotComNirvan, a videographer who incorporated an entirely inimitable way of shooting visuals that caught on like wildfire, and now so many other young directors take these things and try to make them their own. While No one is ever going to do …

Trust Nobody – [North Ave Jax]

Burlington Vermont duo North Ave Jax, and director Kelly Butts-Spirito recently dropped the visuals to “Trust Nobody”. A friendship that was formed since high school, has now blossomed into a powerful partnership. North Ave Jax is the newest artist under LVRN. He has been buzzing on SoundCloud since this track was released. With over half a million streams on Soundcloud in the first three weeks, I can only imagine what is yet to come. This was my first time listening to North Ave Jax, and I must say I’m impressed. From his flow to his bars, the message behind this song was very relatable for me. His voice on top of the beat produced by Yung Lando, fit together perfectly. The hook was catchy and the video helped to bring the meaning behind the song alive. “Trust Nobody” is extremely special to the duo because they created it together. “Kelly picked me up when I was at my lowest and saw something in me I didn’t even see in myself. He spoke dreams into reality and continues to do it. It’s unbelievable how hard he has pushed me to work and better myself. Kelly and I are going to show …
