Doe Brings Progression To Indianapolis In His Newest Visual, “Play Money”

[youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yD8_MrZbSU0&w=560&h=315 22-year-old Indianapolis native Dośe is not your typical MC. Although the Indy hip-hop scene hasn’t brought a wealth of mainstream attention, there is an eclectic underground that has the potential to grow & gain that national attention. Rappers in that area mostly compromise of dizzying lyricsts who focus on paying tribute to the innovators of hip hop. No artist is alike these days … Continue reading Doe Brings Progression To Indianapolis In His Newest Visual, “Play Money”

Chrisjaan LeMann – Tithes (New EP)

**SoundCloud has been messing up lately, and I’ve not been able to embed correctly. You can stream the project here.  It’s a bit ironic that the cover art for Chrisjaan LeMann’s newest EP is almost identical to J. Cole’s Forest Hill Drive. The connection between the two emcees is obvious, as both are self reflective in their respective projects. Let’s back it up a bit. Chrisjaan … Continue reading Chrisjaan LeMann – Tithes (New EP)

There are only 4 … Continue reading TrapSteve – SteveSZN (New EP)

Xavier Clark – DENXM (EP)

We’ve got another “better late than never” post. DENXM by Indianapolis’ Xavier Clark was released in the beginning of February, but I missed it. We covered his excellent Arlo EP back in November, and this follow up is impressive. It is the one of the best full lengths I’ve heard on SoundCloud this month, hands down. There is so much to love about it. Production is A1, … Continue reading Xavier Clark – DENXM (EP)

EJAAZ – Naptown (Video)

Indianapolis native EJAAZ favors quiet production. His music can be cold and full of empty space. He’s dropped project after project with these esthetics, including my favorite, Lil Darling.  He’s upgraded his sound for the first single off his upcoming project in Naptown. EJAAZ provides more relatable subject matter, better vocals and the perfect amount of voice manipulation. He’s chosen another somber beat provided by Alt Legends that … Continue reading EJAAZ – Naptown (Video)

Mula Kkhan – Filthy (Video)

Indianapolis native Mula Kkhan has just dropped the official music video to his successful track Filthy. It’s racked up over 10k views in just 3 months and continues to get a positive response. The actual song has an interesting sound as the beat is minimal, but the rapping is full of trap influence (as well as the video.) The visual by Jayyoptic was executed very … Continue reading Mula Kkhan – Filthy (Video)
