Catching Up On Submissions Part 1 (Best Of)

Detroit’s Ty Farris, formerly known as 40 Flame, returns this year with his elegant new track Dirt Naps. A silky smooth beat from Stu Bangas starts Ty’s even flow, combining effortless punch-lines with no holds back bars. Both Stu and Ty bring a soulful vibe to 2018, and I’m excited for his upcoming EP No Co-sign, Just Cocaine. Dirt Naps is the first single off the … Continue reading Catching Up On Submissions Part 1 (Best Of)

The Chicago Round Up​ (Monday, October 2nd)

It’s impossible to keep up with the newest hip-hop releases. While streaming sites such as Spotify and Apple Music highlight them, they only do so once a week with almost no coverage of “less established” rappers. I write about music for a living, and still can’t keep up. I adore Chicago hip-hop and listen to it pretty much all day. Still, it’s impossible for me to … Continue reading The Chicago Round Up​ (Monday, October 2nd)

Album Recommendations From Julie: Sleigh Bells – “Treats”

For over a year flowsfordays has focused on sharing hip hop music from independent artists. While I listen to hip hop the most, some of my favorite albums of all time delve into punk, rock, electronic, R&B, experimental, and more. As of today I am starting a series highlighting albums that don’t fall into the hip hop category – in hopes that it may compel … Continue reading Album Recommendations From Julie: Sleigh Bells – “Treats”

Tales of the Sin: 5 Songs Defining Las Vegas Right Now

When it comes to Las Vegas and Hip-Hop, the marriage hasn’t always been so fruitful. Sure, now you’re starting to see more middle-tier acts make stops at venues like Brooklyn Bowl, The Joint, Vinyl and some others; but it wasn’t always this way. In fact, until recently, Hip-Hop shows were highly frowned upon outside of the confines of the strip and despite an evolving relationship … Continue reading Tales of the Sin: 5 Songs Defining Las Vegas Right Now

California’s Chuuwee Drops His Best Visual Yet In Sativa Song (Blunt Raps) (Artist Spotlight)

Discover 6 Artists Seamlessly Blending Hip Hop And R&B Into Their Music

Naji Eerie, Pennsylvania Sometimes more rap than singing, but most times more singing than rap, Naji combines soulful vocals with avant-gard beats. On some records, like “Control”, you’ll hear him riding electronica-influenced production. But then, on others, like my personal favorite “Mona Lisa”, a bare-bones Monte Booker beat gives Naji’s singing prowess a ton of room to shine, and that’s exactly what happens. The genre … Continue reading Discover 6 Artists Seamlessly Blending Hip Hop And R&B Into Their Music

Instrumental Blessings In The Last 24hrs- Segment #1

When Drake comes out with a new single – everyone has an opinion. Our feeds light up with criticism, praise, and insults. There in lies the problem – what about the producer? Let’s face it – there is no great song without a producer. While guys like Metro Boomin and Zaytoven have reached superstar status, so many are overshadowed by the lyricist. This is why … Continue reading Instrumental Blessings In The Last 24hrs- Segment #1

flowsfordays Presents: Riptide Vol. 1

I can’t believe it’s here – our first compilation tape. Since the inception of flowsfordays I’ve wanted to put out a project like this.

Each artist featured has made an impact on my life in some way. Many … Continue reading flowsfordays Presents: Riptide Vol. 1

Late Night SoundCloud Finds Of February 21st

Daniel Cruz – overthecounter  I heard this song at 1am, and as soon as the bass hit I grabbed my good speakers and went crazy. I put overthecounter on repeat for a good hour, turning up in my bedroom, trying to find a reason to turn it off. Nevada isn’t know for their hip hop, but Daniel Cruz doesn’t seem to give a fuck. The … Continue reading Late Night SoundCloud Finds Of February 21st

Interview with Shon Goner on track ‘The Chase’ (Dissection Interview Series)

Another day, another dissection. Shon Goner submitted The Chase to us a few weeks ago and we adored it…so much so that we hit him up about being a part of our series. It’s a gritty, slow tempo song with a brilliant chorus that sounds almost too good to be true. There is so much to love about this one so we got to the … Continue reading Interview with Shon Goner on track ‘The Chase’ (Dissection Interview Series)
