W2Leezy – [Justin Rarri]

Justin Rarri is a name you’ll probably hear a lot more of moving forward, especially with how dope his song and video are for “W2Leezy.” I immediately ran this track back a couple of times the first time I listened to it. When took a look on his Instagram I saw him taking label meetings which kind of confirmed what I thought after listening to “W2Leezy.” That this kid will work his way into a deal sooner than later. He showcases an ability to make catchy anthems that will have listeners crooning their hearts out. With rappers like Roddy Ricch and Calboy taking off with their songs “Die Young” and “Envy Me”; “W2Leezy” just fits the viral hit mold that those other tracks possess. Now I mentioned that he was taking label meetings earlier it should be interesting on how Justin Rarri rides this situation out. Because he might be sitting on gold with “W2Leezy.” Watch Justin Rarri’s “W2Leezy” below.

Girls – [Yung Baby Tate]

At 22 years old, Yung Baby Tate has already been making music longer than many of her peers who are just getting into the game. The Atlanta artist has been making her own beats when she was 13, and she dropped her debut ‘ROYGBIV’ project in 2015. Since then, Tate has been pushing genre boundaries, seamlessly playing with different styles to pave a lane with a sound that’s distinctly hers. This month, she’s come through with one of her most sonically diverse projects yet, dedicated to a subject that’s just as dynamic as the songs themselves. ‘Girls’ serves as a conceptual counterpart to Tate’s 2018 project ‘Boys’, and it’s even bolder than its predecessor. Tate finds her niche somewhere in the middle of bubblegum pop, ATL trap, and retro RnB, bending these genres in a way I’ve never quite heard before. The mix of her influences comes through most potently on highlights like “Bad Girl”–she slips into sticky, sugar-coated melodies before going bar-after-bar in a punchy verse delivered with cutthroat confidence. Her natural explosiveness is matched by the production all throughout the project, as distorted bass and buzzing saw synths cut jagged edges around her smooth vocal style. While the …

South Florida keeps producing energetic and captivating talent and its most recent emerging natives, F$O Dinero and F$O Ka$h, are slowly but surely creating a lane for themselves. The duo continues to build on their discography by releasing their new melodic collaborative single, “Fishes.” The understated new single finds both rappers rapping with restraint, utilizing a subtle melodic undertone to profess their infatuation with the song’s love interest.

Rumors of a collaborative project among the F$O crew have recently surfaced definitely piquing our interest in the possibility of a full body of work from the Sunshine State rappers.

Xzibit is one of the most legenadey emcees still walking the planet, from his music career to his acting career he has done it all, so when I saw him stop by the Drink Champs to chop it up with NORE & DJ EFN I was glued to my screen.

Racks On Me – [RonSoCold] x [YoungJordan]

Lyrical Lemonade favorite RonSoCold has been releasing a bunch of hit music lately, and this afternoon he is back with a brand new track called “Racks On Me” featuring Young Jordan. One that that always impresses me about RonSoCold is that this man has an excellent ear for great production, you will never find him rapping over an instrumental that isn’t stellar, and this beat that was provided here by Jetsonmade + 1stclass was certainly up to par. I wasn’t too familiar with Young Jordan before coming across this track but once I heard the feature from him on the back end of this one I was sold, I had to rewind this track a few times through because it was so good. Take a few minutes of your time to check out this brand new track below! prod. jetsonmade + 1stclass

A Closer Look Into Wicca Phase Springs Eternal

On the Road Again, Wicca Phase Springs Eternal Talks the New Approach of Latest Project “Suffer On,” the Impact of Lil Peep’s Death, Major Label Wooing, and the Future of GothBoiClique For the first time ever on a headlining tour, Adam McIlwee, the Pennsylvania  electronic angst auteur who records as Wicca Phase Springs Eternal, has gone out with a stage backdrop, and it’s impressive. But last week in Brooklyn, he didn’t use it. No need, really, as the artist was performing in front of one of the most dramatic views a New York venue has to offer: the elevated tracks of the J, M and Z trains, which rumble by periodically mid-set, just outside the beloved indie venue Market Hotel. It feels like a moment for Wicca Phase. Maybe not a splashy, look-at-me moment, but then, flexing is not really for McIlwee, who at 29 has already logged several notable chapters in an unlikely musical path, one that’s bridged punk, hip-hop, emo, and most recently evolved into singer-songwriter acoustics. He’s still based in his native Scranton, PA, where in the late 2000’s he fronted the indie outfit Tiger’s Jaw, until more electronic and experimental tendencies led him to split from …

No Wonder – [Billy]

Billy came across my radar thanks to two spots on Kevin George’s 2018 standout EP, Fortina, and he’s been impressing me ever since. A diamond in the “rough” Billy’s sound is lightyears ahead of where you would think he is. There’s so much more to the game than having great music, but as evidenced on his latest cut, “No Wonder,”  it’s only a matter of time until “the rest” catches up. With a vocal effort that weaves between singing and rapping with an emotional, atmospheric filter, “No Wonder” will certainly resonate with rap fans. While he excels in that realm, ultimately it’s the pop undertones he sneaks into the music–here it’s in the productions drum-driven backbone–that gives him that irresistibly catchy, pop-centric sound. Get in on the ground floor while you still can! Extra credit: “Heart Breaker”
