Sad Boi Summer: Season 1 – [Blake Yung]

Returning to our pages again today is South Carolina-born, Portland, Orgeon-based artist Blake Yung, following his previous single release “Hollow” he is back this time with a four-track EP “SAD BOI SUMMER SEASON 1,” laced with a variety of dynamic production as to be expected. Despite having a relatively short run-time Yung is nonetheless able to show his versatility and the many wrinkles of his music and character and I hope that before the year’s end we at least get another EP from him to continue building what is becoming a potent catalog. Powered by production from Supah Mario, Boyband, Yeezo, and more who contributed to giving Blake Yung a sturdy sonic background to support his vocals. I look forward to seeing if Blake follows this project with any visuals and look forward to hearing more of what Blake is capable of here soon.

HOLLOW – [Blake Yung]

Since his 2020 EP I’m Fine, Portland, Oregon-based artist Blake Yung has been making a name for himself in the alternative hip-hop space, bursting onto the scene with features from artists like Caskey and Mod Sun blending traditional elements of both emo rap and trap music. Blake headed in a new direction with his subsequent project Leader of the Lost Souls which featured executive production from super-producer Supah Mario who helped Yung evolve his sound even further, introducing him to new tempos and melodies while remaining as emotionally potent as his prior work. His new track “HOLLOW” is poised to be a breakout record for him, set to turn this summer up in L.A. and I would definitely recommend adding this to your summertime playlists.

PSA – [DC the Don]

If you didn’t already know, DC the Don is definitely one of my all-time favorite up-and-comers right now, and my admiration for the young talent continuously grows every time he drops something new because he never disappoints even a little bit. He is able to mash so many different genres into one including emo, punk, rap, hyperpop, trap, and more, so although I never expected to appreciate him nearly as much as I do when I first found out about him, these genres are some of my absolute favorites, so it only makes sense that I can’t get enough of his sound. In the same breath, he doesn’t overdo any of these things to the point of boxing himself in, so I think it is beyond easy for any fan of hip-hop to get into his music and see just how talented he is. As he prepares for his next project My Own Worst Enemy to drop at the end of this week, he is back with another track produced by Maajins called “PAS” alongside a music video that is perfect yet again. Directed by Eddy 7.8, the Milwaukee hitmaker finds himself back in the halls of high school, and …

WHAT NOW? – [DC the Don]

DC the Don might not have had the typical glow up that most of these other rappers might have experienced, but that doesn’t make his music any more or less special, because it’s obvious that he has worked hard to deserve all of the praise and recognition that he is currently getting. Giving up on his hoop dreams to pursue a career behind the microphone, DC came onto the scene guns blazing, showing off his incredibly addictive personality and enthusiasm without holding back, and fans have been flocking in his direction ever since, and rightfully so. Even though there is never a shortage of new music from the Milwaukee native, DC decided to bless fans with another incredible single entitled “WHAT NOW?”, and I couldn’t be more excited for this record. Opening up with an amazing beat crafted by hitmaker Supah Mario, things begin with some triumphant, dominant horns that are eventually met with tempo-setting percussion and thumping drums that come together for an amazing instrumental that is very reminiscent of something you might’ve heard Drake dominate at some point throughout his career. DC begins very strong with a glorious hook, showing off his vocal range as well as his …

Don’t Try This At Home – [J.K. The Reaper] & [Supah Mario]

After a fury of hype singles, rapper J.K. The Reaper and producer Supah Mario have released their highly anticipated 9-song EP. Now, many of you should be incredibly familiar with J.K. as one of the original mic slayers of the SoundCloud era. He’s only refined his penmenship in the past years and his latest project is concrete evidence. Titled Don’t Try This At Home, The Reaper performs some death defying stunts over impeccable production. Supah Mario has been having an incredible year, working with the likes of Drake and Lil Uzi Vert. His co-sign does not come lightly, working with an established artist with strong writing skills shows J.K. is everything we thought he could be. With singles like “Hot Ones” and “Freak of the Week” being a small sample of the heat on the EP, there is a lot of versatility form J.K. in between the bass-blasting heaters we’ve come to expect from him. On tracks like “Mob” and “Norf $ide”, J.K. shows his range bringing his intensity levels way down. If you are expecting the more aggressive sound J.K. is known for then look out for songs like “Run It” and “Make It Rain” which are by far two …

Batman n Robin – [Showjoe]

In what feels like a song-oriented market of music right now — driven largely by viral moments and the immediacy that platforms like TikTok can offer — it’s always refreshing to see artists who are dedicating themselves to building a world around their art. Personally, I feel as though world-building is a key to longevity, and it’s a way to get fans involved and engaged in the journey as opposed to the moment. Virginia native Showjoe is doing just this, and it’s centered around high-energy, roller-coaster ride offerings like my personal favorite, “Batman n Robin.” Co-produced by the legendary Supahmario — who recently put forth one of my favorite beats in recent memory with Drake’s “What’s Next” — “Batman n Robin” is a ray of sunshine in both sound and tone, sutrcutred around a barrage of quote-worthy lyrics and a seemingly endless supply of energy. Excitement seeps through Joe’s every word, and the song’s confidence takes on new meaning when contextualized with his Weirdkidschangetheworld brand. Showjoe prides himself on being the weird kid, and with the charisma and sound to easily captivate, new fans are buying in by the day. Needless to say, at just 18 years old, Showjoe is showing serious promise …

Spill My Cup – [TyFontaine] ft. [Autumn]

I’m not entirely sure what happened over the past couple of months, but I was saddened to hear that TyFontaine announced he is no longer a part of Internet Money. While it isn’t my place to speak on the situation, it’s clear that the relationships he built with IM haven’t dwindled even slightly after showing texts between him and the legendary Taz Taylor discussing the fact that they mutually want to continue their working careers together, so you can breathe easy and know that more hits are on the way. Nonetheless, I know that Ty was making hits before he was with IM, while he was with them, and apparently still after his departure which is a relief, and if you somehow don’t believe me, just tune into his latest release entitled “Spill My Cup”. Produced by Supah Mario, Akachi, and ProdKyle, the instrumental opens with some momentum-carrying synths that tiptoe along your eardrums before rattling hats and booming drums come crashing into the picture for an upbeat, fast-paced record that shows Ty at the top of his game. As he spits, there is this grit and determination behind his delivery that allows him to deliver his words with such …

Hot Ones – [J.K. The Reaper] & [Supah Mario]

If you have been a fan of underground hip-hop then there’s no doubt you are familiar with the name J.K. The Reaper. The artist out of North Carolina electrified listeners with his sharp lyricism and aggressive delivery on many iconic songs from the peak of the SoundCloud era. J.K. connected with Supah Mario, a producer who has been on an absolute tear this year contributing to some of 2020’s biggest albums. Mario’s sound was crucial to Lil Uzi Vert’s behemoth album Eternal Atake, so it comes as no surprise that the super-producer shifted his eyes to another talent that is ready to reclaim his title as one of the nicest out of the underground. The pair recently dropped an energetic new single titled “Hot Ones”, a spicy single that highlights why a collab from these 2 is long overdue. With J.K. The Reaper, you can always expect witty verses that feature lines that implant themselves in your head. Since I first time I heard this song, J.K. outlining himself getting wild and doing a “Swanton Bomb into a Hot Tub” was an image I just couldn’t get out of my head. This heater was accompanied by visuals that match the tempo of the …

Trapped On Cleveland 3 – [Lil Keed]

Atlanta and YSL affiliate Lil Keed is back with his star-studded and highly anticipated album ‘Trapped On Cleveland 3’. Personally I’ve been waiting to dive into this album for some time now to see how much Keed has progressed his sound up until this point. Keed’s newest project features a star-studded cast that features the likes of Young Thug, Travis Scott, Future, Lil Baby, Gunna, Ty Dolla Sign, and more. One other reason I was excited about TOC3 was the fact that Young Thug was really hands-on with this and helped executive produced this record. You can tell Keed is experimenting as an artist and with how he’s been structuring his music and how he’s been playing around with different flows and cadences. Like the features, the production on this album features some pretty notable names as well such as Wheezy, Jetson Supah Mario, and more. Although he has a while to go I believe Keed has the drive to become one of the most unique artists in rap. No, his sound isn’t that much more different than Young Thug but with Thug grooming him and how much Keed has progressed within the last 2 projects I believe he’s showing …

Look At The Kid – [Madeintyo]

Madeintyo has never failed to give us at least a handful of bangers for the summer over the past few years, and minutes ago he jut released a super catchy record for summer ’19 with “Look At The Kid”. One thing that I love about Madeintyo is just how much has has progressed as a rapper over the years, he has always been raw, but take a close listen to how well executed his verses were on this track & I would argue that’s peak level rapping from Madeintyo. Regardless, he spazzed on this track and I am sure our audience will love it, so smash the play button below! Produced by Supah Mario
