GenoDa1 from Homestead is a swift clever wordsmith on his new track “How Dare Y’all.” A call out to all his opponents, wanting all the smoke that may come to him. He delivers hard bars over a jazzy laid-back record with boom-bay style drums that sits well in the mix.
Just over the past weekend, I witnessed an event that has the potential to be something that can be extravagant and huge in time. [Beatsnchill], a Tampa based team founded by the multifaceted artist Derrick (HMTWN) and Keena have come up with the idea of Tampa Beat Weekend. A 3-Day event that is dedicated to producers. Its premise is to show love and appreciation to producers where in the music industry it’s not so appreciated as much as it should be. It gives producers (mainly Florida producers) a chance to connect with others and even music artists to spread their name out and showcase their art of creating sounds for the world. I didn’t know what to expect when I arrived to 2 out of the 3 of the events but I came back with something special where I felt that the city of Tampa needed for its creatives. It was just beautiful.
Tampa Beat Weekend is not just for producers though. Their very first event is simply a kickback. A day to meet different creatives that range from photographers, videographers and artists who paint beautiful canvases with vibrant colors and various complex themes. This was a collaboration with the Debonair District team, a brotherhood of creatives where they assist friends with their own business ventures as well as having a shirt printing warehouse. Across the walls of the warehouse there are amazing paintings by talented artists that immediately catch your eye with its mesmerizing images. There was also an open bar that I gladly took part in that night as well. Later that night [Beatsnchill] were able to bring A$AP P, the mastermind behind A$AP Mob’s hit record, “Bath Salts”, to perform a DJ set of music for the crowd. Who puts on a stellar set, playing a mixture of beats and bangers.
Tampa Beat Weekend also held a beat battle competition where Beat-makers would compete to take the crown of being the best producer. Witnessing this tournament, made a realization that there Florida has so many talented and skilled producers that have an exceptional ear from music. 808s hitting hard but with a satisfying warm feeling, snares that are crisp with the right amount pop to them while the instrumentations from these producers are sonically orgasmic.
[Beatsnchill] has put together a summit that is well needed for the city of Tampa and Florida. Bringing all beat-makers and creatives in one place was a dope scenery. I hope to see it become more known to the public eye and become one of the most momentous events in music history.

Just after releasing his own take on “Bartier Cardi”. The trap demon from Central Florida, Bukkweat Bill returns to unleash a collaborative project with THATSMYSA called PLAYA SH!T, that’s one hell of a ride. 8 songs that consistently gets better and better with clever wordplay and exciting flows. Both artists hold great chemistry together as they tag team each other to kill each track on this project.
The sauced up Montae Harri$ comes with the pressure by dropping visuals for “Quick”. The song itself is crack, highly addictive, and gives you a rush. Representing Broward County where they breed nothing but talent, Montae Harri$ continues the cycle by applying his catchy rap flows and rhymes. Behind the lens you have HighEnterpriseTV, who constructed the video and 808 Beastt behind the boards. Together they crafted a dope vision and sound.
Fort Lauderdale’s very own Mike Lary is not slowing down as he returns once again with a new track called “You My World”. Mike Lary takes time with himself by expressing his inner feelings towards a special lady in his life. Reminiscing over good times and fond memories that mean the world to him. He steps into a place where we don’t see him do too often. With R Vintage behind the boards, we get a dope record where we get to see the Lauderdale artist‘s more kind side.
