West Florida representer by way of Canada, GTuck giving us his quick personal rendition of “Leave” by Poland production ensemble, Heisenberg’s Montage. A part of the creative collective known as MoneyHigh, Tuck is kicking off their summer campaign with “Leave”. Off top the production itself places the track in a good light. Great patterns, perfecting timing, and a mesmerizing sample playing throughout. But GTuck gives it what it may have been missing, a tantalizing presence with slick vibrant lyrics.

by .

PRODUCER: Ian J

As the second quarter of 2015 kicks off and summer begins to bubble, it has become apparent that Florida has staked its well deserved claim in the underground art and music world. The south side being the most prominent at the moment. Striking while the iron is hot, Palm Beach County’s very own Malc Stewy delivers with a conscious minded track simply dubbed, “Spacy Blue”. Full of bass and a space age ambiance provided by producer Ian J, this songs tells a great message. Simply, open your damn minds people!

PREMIERE: Oddyssey – On You

PRODUCER: Entheo
UPCOMING PROJECT: They Made Me Do It
RELEASE DATE: TBA 2015

The man. The myth. Miami’s Oddyssey has delivered once again. Can’t say that I’m surprised, but damnit, I am impressed nonetheless. Today he drops off a head bobbing, bar-filled journey entitled, “On You”.  A ride chauffeured by a Florida’s next destined star. CITRUSRAP.COM isn’t only the prominent source for the sunshine state’s raw and exceptional talent, we’re also fucking psychic. When the beat begins, I got the initial impression that it would be a slow, dark, misty track. But just before the verse begin, the instrumental delivers a strong pattern of hits, reminiscent of Mannie Fresh and Juvie in the late 90’s. Instantly setting off the alarm in my memory, knowing that only means one thing. It’s about to crank the hell up. And with perfect timing and rhythm, in comes Oddyssey, using that buildup to fuel the hypnotizing voyage. Painting vivid pictures with his works. Brief stories and excerpts, fluid like flows that were placed in his mental bank, virtually waiting for this moment to create something great like “On You”. The song is the ultimate flexing tool. This our millionth time explaining how gifted this man is. Embed this into your head. From here on out, anytime that you see his name, today is the day that we told you so.
