Bringing Drill to Florida. Chicago’s Hyype links with Miami native, Boobie Lootaveli, and hits the land with a yoppa of a track. A distorted-hardcore artwork by @kostanoir, to match Spayce Jones‘ hard drilling beat. Take a listen to Hyype’s most recent EP Seraphic at the link above and be sure to keep this record bumping through your speaker.
Ten months after blessing us with his EP, 1%, he continues to attack. When he’s not producing for Florida’s most prominent upcoming stars, he’s composing and recording some golden tracks. This week Jah, also stylized as jahrahmf, lets loose the smooth feel good song for this spring, entitled “not the man they think i am at home” A sweet “Rocket Man” sample playing under the incredibly rhythmic drums, as Jah is talking shit and preaching at the same time. What is there not to enjoy about this track? Give it a spin.
Bringing a key piece of my childhood together with a head banger that I can play fa’eva. Reesyro comes through with his latest work, “Fa’Eva”. Hailing from Jacksonville, Florida and reppin’ Apply Pressure. He and the rest of the collective continue doing just that. FrostTheWaveGod, Apply Pressure‘s in-house producer was the evil genius behind this instrumental. Rumored to be the sole producer on Reesyro’s upcoming EP, Frost brings in the bouncy tempo-ed drums, Reesyro delivers the fluid bars & flow, as they both create a mosh-worthy club-anthem. Spin this record. You know that you won’t be disappointed.
PRODUCERS: Jah & Afro Draconis LATEST EP: AURA | Listen UPCOMING PROJECT: Thoughts Of She | Pre-Order
The women of Florida continue to put in work as She.Go preps for Thoughts Of She, set to drop this summer. The second single is this gift, entitled “Back To Black”. Produced by jahRahMF & Afro Draconis. Dark, full of bass, and the perfect sample of Amy Winehouse, pretty much making it a duet. Her unique voice gliding over the beat, with lyrics that sum up and relate to most love lives of this generation. Tampa has one. Listen as she goes in.
When releasing an album, there’s always little to no room for error, unless you just truly hate your fans. Especially in this new age, where music is discarded as fast as a packet of duck sauce at your local Chinese food spot. You nearly have to aim for perfection in order to retain your spot in rap history. But in some cases, everything is just natural. And it seems like Cherele is one of those cases. On Friday morning, with the help of Fact Magazine, she debuted her album to the world, Paradise Lost. Instantly, it garnished flawless reception with an hour. The album starts off with “Timing, a track that I personally played a minimum of 10 times once I received the album’s link. She reminisces of the times with her grandad, and a short excerpt about him that helps define her ways and her roots a little more to the world. With lines like: “He was selling coke and pimpin’, since I was in diapers pissin’..” Paradise Lost continues to pick up heavily just as the intro begins to fade out, with “Raised By Wolves” following after. With her brother in arms, Ellz, lending a super energetic and bar-filled verse. So many great tracks, it’s difficult to pick a standout. But this is ‘Merica, so if I had to pick, then Visions would be my shit. Like a young Pharrel with the hat to match. LeMieux pulling up as Chad Hugo. A real grade A cast was put together. Ellz, Father, Betty Dawl, KONA, & Argyle Bixby. The production done by LeMuieX. She got fucking Robert Gallardo for art direction. So to sum it all up for ya: IF YOU SAY THIS AINT FYE, YOU’RE A HATER. (stamped and approved by the 1995 Uncle Luke; don’t quote me)

It’s the Kumite on acid. While back on the road. This time with Sir Michael Rocks. Pouya delivers the insanely mind farting video for his South Side Slugs track, “So What”. Don Krez and Hltr$kltr behind the production, while visually, Giancarlo Leffredo takes you to that moment just before you’re about to trip balls. Cat girls fighting to the death. Seizure inducing transitions. Fat Nick half with no shirt, holding and umbrella. No one really knows what’s going on in the video, but that’s why it’s so addicting to watch. The only thing that it’s missing is Shang Tsung in the cut, coolin’. Watch the video and thank them for the best video of your day.
