Too Trill DM – The Incomplete Assignment (Album)

About 3 months after the release of his project, Thinking Out Loud, Too Trill DM aka Miami’s phoenix has returned from the ashes of the rap game to provide a strong resurgence of authenticity fused with pain and determination on his brand new album, The Incomplete Assignment.

The Incomplete Assignment serves as Too Trill DM’s official summertime album, after blessing fans with projects since the winter. Featuring a hand full of his Floridian talents (Zyana Trillz, LB199X & Lil D OFTR), the young Dade county emcee gives us a raw confession of life, disguised as a 14 track album.

The Incomplete Assignment is an experience. One that needs to be witnessed in order to be understood.

Nia Ray – Lowkey (Official Music Video)

Produced by: Aiko Gamma

Directed by: Bianca Alberti

Last year in November, South Florida artist Nia Ray delivered her soulful music video “911”. Today, the songwriter is back & this time she released a bubbly vibe entitled ” Lowkey”. In the Bianca Alberti directed visual, Nia is taking us through a couple of colorful aesthetically pleasing scenes where she’s getting glammed up with her girlfriend. Throughout the produced Aiko Gamma beat, Nia vocalizes over the catchy poppy flow with lyrics like ” I ain’t tryna keep it lowkey, I rock my diamonds and my Louis V And I don’t need no n*gga on me“. We chatted with Nia Ray & she gave us a quick rundown behind the concept of “Lowkey “:

The concept for the video was basically just me showing off in a bunch of different outfits, getting done up, having my homegirl do my hair like I’m getting ready to go out. Lowkey is basically about embracing being a bad bitch. Sometimes you feel like you have to dim your light because you can tell people are uncomfortable or overwhelmed or jealous with your presence and how bright you shine, but this song is about saying IDGAF I’m gonna wear that outfit that’s a little extra & look bad as f*ck & be me. I don’t care if I get side-eyes or people say I’m doing too much. I really just made the song because I wanted a fun song to be able to perform for a performance I had back in December.

Nia Ray

Ladies this may be your new anthem this summer. Watch “Lowkey” above.

Kobe Fresh Outta High School makes his return to CitrusRap with “Babe’s Coat”. The Tampa rapper gifts us with a captivating track filled with satisfaction and a devotion to his lover. Listen as Kobe trades sultry lyrics and melodies in an epic display over this smooth instrumental.

There’s nothing better than being able to put a track with such great vibes on repeat, completely drowning in the sound and not realizing that you’ve played it almost a hundred times without a break. Except being able to put this very song on repeat while you’re with your significant other.
