Just a few days after showcasing a new track with the help of YesJulz, Lil Uzi Vert is back with another heat wave called “So Hit”. Produced by one of Atlanta’s premier league producers, Sonny Digital. Even with every rapper and creative at his helm this entire year, Lil Uzi Vert’s stock has been climbing tremendously over the past month after releasing his critically acclaimed project LUV IS RAGE. Hopefully these recent bangers will be hints to an official album in the works for 2016. Until then, “So Hit” will serve as the party anthem for the weekend.
The interstellar new comer coming out of Orlando, tedd.gif is making it apparent that he deserves a spot at the table with his latest video and banger, “4 WAY STOP” which is produced by Sdotfire and featured on his debut project N2O. The artist is taking major a risk after dropping out of college and quitting his job, with high hopes on being a star. While crashing at the home of his video director Charles Wheatle, they both decided to head to the city of angels to shoot this cinematic masterpiece. A visual full of intising effects, aerial shots on a landing pad and RC car chases. This music video is surely ahead of what most Florida artist are producing today. Get your popcorn and enjoy.

This #TBT we celebrate the Florida Sultan, DJ Khaled, once again. This go around we revive the 2011 hit record that brought Khaled and Rick Ross‘ their first Grammy nod and truly solidified Khaled as the rap game’s premiere orchestrater, “I’m On One”. Also featuring the front runners, Drake and Lil Wayne, who were unsurprisingly still on a long stretch of chart domination during that time. As usual, the We The Best head-honcho called upon Gil Green to provide the lavish visuals for this star studded event of a track, which premiered during the 2011 BET Awards. “I’m On One” was an immediate radio, club and overall smash record. Going on to sell over 1.8 million copies and gaining platinum certification and peaking to #10 on Billboard’s Hot 100 charts. Billboard also ranked it at #17 on their list of 20 Best Songs of 2011. This single could clearly be the reason behind his follow up album, Suffering From Success, because after this he could literally do no wrong on the charts and on airwaves. So today we just want to show our thanks and gratitude for DJ Khaled and the hits like this that he brought to the world.
Probably the only Nicki Minaj sample used to make a banger this sensual. One half of LTENGHT, SKUfl, falls through with the laid back and arousing track produced by ICYTWAT called “Pussy Holiday”. Big things are coming out of Florida and the men behind LTENGHT are no exception. Grab a girl or two, press play and the sound waves work their magic.
PRODUCER: Adam On The Track SKYXXX LATEST PROJECT: And Then The Moon Feel | Stream CASKEY LATEST PROJECT: Black Sheep 2 | Download
Orlando’s dynamic duo SKYXXX and Caskey have linked once more just in time for SKYXXX’s brief intermission. After being seen mobbing together in Caskey’s latest video for “DPWM”, the two hit the studio and dropped off “Funny”, a victory lap track for the end of the year, full of flexing satire.
“Aint it funny how these motherfuckers used to doubt me.. Aint it funny how they all wanna be down with the team..”
Produced by the infamous Adam On The Beat, the spacey instrumental is destroyed as the tag team duo take turns attacking head on. SKYXXX and Caskey are the 2015 resurrection of Double Dragons. With both stars having recently released critically acclaimed projects, this will only pour gasoline to the bomb that they’ve both lit. Press play and flex out to “Funny”.
Even while away, the South Florida standout Nell has been steadily releasing content, keeping his talent and star power exposed for the world to see. And with the quality of work he’s been dropping, like that of this new joint “BanginScrew”, it’s no wonder why the entire underground is eager for his return and the highly anticipated release of his project 94′ Mentality Vol. 2. While Florida powerhouses like Denzel Curry, Yung Simme and Pouya continue to hold him down and keep his name in the higher ranks, we at CitrusRap.com will do the same. Take a listen or two, or three and vibe out to this laid back anthem.
