Florida native Kidway takes it up a notch with his new video, “Limbo” shot and directed at Sage Studios in Seattle by another Florida OG, Winchoz . The vocal-driven song captures both Kidway and the featured artist, SamxWar in a very raw element. You can hear the sounds of Seattle that brings nostalgic emotions to the surface. The production is very simple, yet complex with immersive organ notes to take it too that next level. The production was done by SamxWar, Cameron Keyser, Asher & Kidway himself. I’m truly excited to see what Kidway has in store for 2021 & years to follow. Check out his new single plus video, “Limbo” out now!
With the official video for “Waiting for You” still fresh in our minds, Kelechi shares a brand new song. “On Me” was inspired by a motivating conversation he had with Jidenna on his “85 to Africa Tour.” Radiating confidence and self-awareness on this Afrobeats infused jam, it’s no wonder why this is Kelechi’s favorite song off the album. “It’s about stepping into one’s greatness. I had a conversation with Jidenna on tour and he told me: ‘There’s no stars, or opener on this tour. It’s on YOU to decide how fans walk away feeling about you.’ It’s some real chief shit. This song feels like a show night on tour. From opener to after party,” Kelechi shares with us. Though the pandemic has put a halt to traditional live concerts, Kelechi has partnered with Stream Live to launch his virtual “Going Home Tour” in the form of a weekly, live concert series. Stream Kelechi’s vibrant new song “On Me” below, and pre-order his upcoming Going Home album here

Since winning the 2017 Verizon x 300 Entertainment #freestyle50 competition, Chicago rapper and entrepreneur Y.K Supe has remained consistent. In fact, the independent artist returns today with his third project of the year. Keeping this EP in-house with his YKMG (Young King Music Group) brand, Y.K Supe teams up with longtime friend and producer 93 Chris to deliver The Skrrt Tape Vol. 1. Y.K Supe keeps the focus on him with this EP with no guest verses, and gets right into what’s on his mind with the intro “Pandemic.” “Just lost my cousin and big sis / Gotta keep my pipe/ Can’t live like this,” Y.K Supe raps in a remorseful tone. The joint project finds Y.K Supe alternating from introspective lyrics, to boastful rhymes about his lifestyle, to dropping some critics about the industry. Capable of serving raw aggression or more laid-back tracks, Y.K Supe shows his versatility and especially his chemistry with 93 Chris on T.S.T Vol. 1.”The only feature is a collab on the production with 93 Chris & Fl8cko aka Fl8ckoGoingCrazy. They teamed up for the BeatEm record, which is a Chicago infused southern blend that compliments my flow..it just has a crunk music vibe to it,” Y.K Supe shares with us. Stream the new, inspirational 7-track EP below, and stay up to date with the latest releases from Young King Music Group by following Y.K Supe on Instagram here.
Denver-based, Grammy-nominated songwriter Trev Rich has been loaning his pen to some of the top artists in the game, but returns today with a fiery release of his own with “Lie A Lot.” With bouncy production courtesy of The Sharke, Trev Rich floats on the beat, serving up a lot of quotables in the short, 1:30-long track. Directed by Leland Schmidt, the video radiates that nostalgic, West Coast feel, with Trev mobbing late-night through the city. From cars drifting, to his crew dancing, and Trev spitting boastful rhymes out the sunroof of a Mercedes-Benz, this visual is brief, but entertaining from start to finish. “The song came to life as I was creating the story of my upcoming project, called Out The Dark. So Lie A Lot is really coming from a place of comfortability and security with being numb, transitioning into my higher self. It’s just a piece of the story or my Great Awakening,” Trev Rich shares with us.

Though the EP is a short, 11 minutes long, Connor and megan. encapsulate all of the emotions that come with the uncertainty and often dismal moments of fading relationships. Luna is a concise, yet multi-faceted and relatable body of work. Check out the project now and enjoy some pure R&B.
