PREMIERE: Xali – Real Hot Boy (Prod. Elm Vision)

PRODUCER: Elm Vision

The Broward Saint, Xali is back on CitrusRap and your airways with a heater for the soul. “Real Hot Boy”, a tribally rhythmic track for passionate bar lovers and rap heads alike. The Regalife CEO and Valhalla Records member viscously attacks the Elm Vision instrumental, as “Real Hot Boy” serves as a strong display of his flows and rap skill set. Completely setting him apart from the majority of whatever competition is foolish enough to get that close to an open fire. Xali is hitting 2017’s third quarter like Klay Thompson. Just as you think that he’s beginning to cool off, his writing hand sets ablaze once again. Thank you Xali for making our jobs easier today. Get your soulja rags and Reeboks, and blast “Real Hot Boy” the proper way.

Now it’s time to shed light on its next upcoming artist Murph as he releases his new EP, Position of Power. Consisting of 10-tracks, each one carries a momentum full of powerful statements. A great representation of South Florida’s music, that resembles a Rick Ross’s aura. He released his first ever mixtape back in 2010 and now in 2017 you can hear the growth and maturity in this new project.

On Position of Power, Murph’s rap ability are acrobatic as he flips rhymes and verses without missing a beat, with a delivery that’s striking. He’s dives into his preliminary stages in the game, how he came from the bottom to where he is today. “Puttin On” paints pictures of struggle and pain, but it’s what motivated him to get where he is now. Murph brings in other Florida natives such as Bizzy Crook, Webbz, Johnny Brooks, Jay Burna, and 8 Eight to fully fulfill the South Florida vibe. As the production of the project, the beats are efficient and are great for those long late-night drives. Position of Power shows the growth in Murph and how exciting it is to see what he will come out with next.
