Weeks before her return to the Rolling Loud stage in New York, Miami’s forever expanding musical sensation, Skodi, makes her return to the forefront of the CitrusRap pages.

niceymost – SEVEN (Album|Review)

niceymost

After going on a tear for months on end, releasing a new track each week, Central Florida’s own, niceymost, pulls up to the finish line with a jam packed project for the fans, as part of his new year’s resolution. SEVEN is a collection of his latest and greatest drops from the past year, that deliver the same feeling as a musical self help book for hustlers and creatives alike. Meaning it resonates nothing short of power inducing bars that makes the listener feel as if they are the coolest individual alive.

With production and rhythms that forces your body into tribal, head bobbing movements. Using both bars and a refreshing beat selection to grab ahold of our ears. This will surely leave audio dope-heads fiening. Two of the standouts being “5 Star” a more lyrically menacing track. Preceded by the self-righteous anthem, “Mr. Untouchable”. When these two tracks are played, magic is the only outcome.

With SEVEN, niceymost proves that even his loosies have the word “Banger” stamped onto them. This 19 minute extended play holds up well. Keeping us at CitrusRap on the lookout for more audio dope by the young rapper. It seems there will be much more coming from one man army, niceymost, in the near future, as this is just the second wave of his genius plan. For now, enjoy this album while you’re on your money making mission.

STREAM: via Spotify/Apple Music/Tidal

Following the momentum of “Lauderale Boo”, Broward legend in the making, ItsJustMikey, brings in a collection of 954 stars to assist in his first drop of 2022. Today on CitrusRap, the South Florida artist makes his year’s end debut with “Being Honest (Crack Pipe)”, a double feature song of great energy and self assurance, produced by Sakii and SkipOnDaBeat. With Mikey setting the initial tone with the opening verse and then carrying the message further in the second half, as the beat switches. Proving that he can deliver strongly no matter which instrumental is in the spotlight.

ItsJustMikey took action into his own hands to ensure that the track would remain a banger. Mikey also called for assistance from Broward native visual artists, LeAndre Barnett & Perfect, to give a great display of their talents by creating the official cover art, adding to the track’s combustion. Stay alert because he’s looking to make serious noise in the upcoming future with a sound sure to reach much farther than Florida. And it damn sure looks/sounds like he has all of the tools to do so.

Nocturnal Dez – Lets Get Active (EP|Review)

STREAM: via Spotify/Apple Music/Tidal

Nocturnal Dez

With last years entry reaching over half a million downloads to accompany a million views. South Florida representor, Nocturnal Dez returns to CitrusRap during the third quarter to unleash another musical installment into his critically acclaimed discography, Lets Get Active.

No features whatsoever, Dez continues to show fire in his eyes and a snarl in his growl as he proves why his numbers NEVER lie. A seven track itinerary of pure gas was delivered by the South Florida phenom. Mostly produced by frequent collaborators Aston Marton. The project also features beats from Eem Triplin and Corey James.

Tracks like “No Sleep” shows us versatility with his melodic vocal projections and bashing rhymes. While the Aston Marton produced “Action” gives a familiar rhythmic and hypnotic flow, it passes all tests of being a banger once you realize that you’ve been head banging the entire four and a half minutes.

It’s safe to say that Nocturnal Dez is back for his annual run on the charts as he’s grown accustom to doing. With bodies of work as appealing as this one, the entire state of Florida is likely to help catapult him back into the front lines of stardom. Give the EP a listen and prepare to put it on repeat.

Deleteeglitch – Whispers From The Wayside (Album|Review)

PRODUCER: Lonesworld
ART DIRECTION: Big Flowers
PURCHASE: via Bandcamp
FEATURING: S!lence, Roman, Lungs, Skully Ciprani, Nine Livs, Big Flowers & Breezy Montclair

Deleteeglitch

Tampa based artist, Deleteeglitch, a lyrically mythical being that’s on a mission to captivate rap fans, makes his debut to CitrusRap just before Spring truly begins. Dropping off Whispers From The Wayside, a full body of work that acts as a teaser to what feels like something much bigger in the near future. Deleteeglitch relentlessly tears apart the music game with merely nine, yet expressive and weighty tracks.

A vague presence all throughout the project, yet this album doesn’t lack in bar and production quality. Deleteeglitch is the perfectionist of surreal rap and soul grabbing lyricism. Vivid tales of pain turned into triumph anthems. Like a bizarre hybrid of wordsmith rapping, and a psychological thriller flick. This could REALLY be the score to something of an indie film!

For this very situation, Deleteeglitch called upon the perfect composers for Whispers From The Wayside. Producer, Lonesworld, giving that dark, but jazzy ambiance to the project, each in their own style and respect to the star artist. The duo is reminiscent to the timeless work of greats like MF DOOM and Madlib. This album is FULL of gems that NEED to be heard!

The introduction is an intense, nonstop onslaught of bars disguised as a weed induced poem, titled “Burnie Madoff Wax”. The latter called “THEHEADBONECONNECTEDTOTHENECK”, a distressing instrumental that forces Deleteeglitch and the featured artist, S!lence, to lyrically jab their way out of Lonesworld’s rhythmic crosshairs. Soon followed by “That Feely Feeling That Feels Feely” featuring Roman. A brash hitting psalm, that oozes self reliance in the lyrics. But if we were forced to choose a staff pick, it would have to be “GOINOVERTHESKYWAYBLINDFOLDEDAT140FUCKITWHYNOT”. A free flowing, double and triple entendre filled, hard hitting anthem for the perfect flex. It sounds like something that Ghostface and Raekwon would play before they hit the block in Staten Island. The definitive soundtrack for real emcees.

With only 9 tracks, each track is as hard as the last, it’s nearly impossible pick and pull out this pot. It’ll be best for you to do as we say and play Whispers From The Wayside in it’s entirety. Back to back to back to back.

Today is no day different from any other day when we tell you to keep your eyes and ears locked onto someone that we feature. Whispers From The Wayside is a poignant masterpiece by Deleteeglitch.
