Miami birthed him, but he resides in Orlando. The artist known simply as Kim, takes his step into the spotlight with his new release called “Did to Yuh”. The track gives insight into Kim’s life as he vividly recalls the day that his father, Stephon, took his own life. He reminds the world that moments like that are what molded him into the artist that he is today. Switching from singing to spitting, all in the same flow, he remains fluid on the beat. The production is by Jove Beats, who has been backing him since they first met, helping propel him into future stardom. We can see it in him as well, true star power. And he reminds us that even though the track this hot, for him, it’s effortless now. There’s always bigger and better to come, and we’ll be waiting for it. Until then, take a listen to “Did to Yuh” above.
Usually for birthdays people get gifts, but DoLA decides to show us why he’s the man and gives a gift to the people called “Birthday Suit.” Ghost/\/Ghoul continues to rise to prominence, as he lays a dark-hype instrumental to combat with DoLA’s rash bars on the trippy record. The hook kicks the door off of the hinges immediately, with the lines: “Fuck a outfit, I’d rather wear ya bitch out / Fuck a ounce bitch, I’d rather cop a brick house!” Forewarning, if you play this at high levels in public areas, the possibility of a moshpit being formed out of nowhere will increase 100 percent. But then again, who doesn’t appreciate a good moshpit? Let DoLA continue to apply pressure to the rap game, and if you haven’t done so, make sure to wish him a Happy (belated) Birthday.

Like many other squads, Swamp Posse is on a serious campaign to bring the crown back to Florida, with the respect that this beloved state deserves. With that being said, I shouldn’t be surprised that Wifisfuneral has yet to disappoint. Less than two weeks after releasing the intro to his highly anticipated project, Now & Forever, Wifisfuneral leaks a bonus track featuring the homies SkyXXX, KeeZ, & Max’ P. With production by Jay Splash, listen as the collective get their Kelly Slater on as they flex on “Surrrf”.

A$ton Matthews gives us a walk through the streets of the west for his latest visual, “Chapo.” The visual shows a day in the life, through alley ways to deliver a pack to a pistol loading Vince Staples. This video should be adapted into a movie directed by Hype Williams or Christopher Nolan. A man can dream, right?
