Threat Digga & Foreva Fameos Collab On Serious Banger ‘Asian’

Threat Digga has been featured on FFD a number of times, starting with our first dissection interview back in October of 2016. I’ve always believed in the South Jersey native, and hip hop fans around the world are finally taking notice of his unbelievable talent. 2 weeks ago he dropped an absolute banger that has already been played 21.1K times. Asian is a hip hop heads’ dream, as both … Continue reading Threat Digga & Foreva Fameos Collab On Serious Banger ‘Asian’

It’s been two months since his jaw dropping debut EP WWDD, and luckily for us, he’s back. To celebrate the success of the project, Tone has released a short, but dope track titled PayRoll. Tone is known … Continue reading Daylight Tone Hits The Airwaves Once Again For Lyrical Gem ‘PayRoll’

flowsfordays Premiere: Mountos – Conditional Friends (New Track)

I have so much respect for artists who wear their heart on their sleeve. They stand behind the microphone, and perhaps behind Twitter, but the vulnerability factor is still very much there. Many of us are afraid to look weak….repressing these feelings and taking them out on loved ones who are none the wiser. Some hurt others. And some turn the pain into beautiful music. … Continue reading flowsfordays Premiere: Mountos – Conditional Friends (New Track)

Mauzy Takes Us Along His Journey Through College in Debut EP “Bombs: Been On My BS”

Mauzy is everything I’d want in an MC. His voice is distinct, he brings creativity to his music, his production choice is intact, he has a unique flow, his rhymes are potent and personal, and he knows how to tell a story. This is proven in his debut EP, Bombs: Been On My BS. The project takes us along his journey through college, describing the activities … Continue reading Mauzy Takes Us Along His Journey Through College in Debut EP “Bombs: Been On My BS”

Chicago MC Kash Gets Personal In New Music Video “WANDER NOT LOST’

Chicago’s Kash is new to my ears but has immediately impressed with his music video WANDER NOT LOST. It dropped back in March, but deserves the proper attention and praise. Videographer and editor Brian Edwards of MoneyStrongTv matched Kash’s potent bars – touching on friends he can’t trust, his desire and dedication to make it big, and a catchy, energetic chorus to match. It’s been a minute … Continue reading Chicago MC Kash Gets Personal In New Music Video “WANDER NOT LOST’

CHICAGO’S NICO $UPREMO DOES HIS CITY AND HIS STYLE JUSTICE ON “AIR FORCE ALL STAR”

It’s hard to rep Chicago harder than Nico $upremo does on his new track Air Force All Star, with its extensive references to the titular shoe merely being the start of it. Over the creeping beat provide by Lone Buddha Beats, Nico spends much of the track documenting what the shoe means to him and the city as a whole, flossing with references to Rocky … Continue reading CHICAGO’S NICO $UPREMO DOES HIS CITY AND HIS STYLE JUSTICE ON “AIR FORCE ALL STAR”

Dre Izaya – Words Cost (NEW TRACK)

Last year, an emcee who goes by DreIzaya quietly slipped past our radar. Born lyricist no doubt, the Chicagoan drops WordsCost, a three minute spill on a broken system and the results thereof. What’s more intriguing, Dre is rather young to be spewing such heavy bars. Although only 16, he shows what can happen when you hone your skill. Here’s to a new year and … Continue reading Dre Izaya – Words Cost (NEW TRACK)

Yung Plato Brings A Fresh Sound to Hip Hop In His Newest Track “Ese Vato Fre$h”

Yung Plato is only 19 but has talent way beyond his years. The attention to Cali hip-hop is growing, and Plato must be in the conversation of up and comers. His newest track, Ese Vato Fre$h, is hard to define, and probably shouldn’t be. Plato has a profound ability to blend echoing musings into potent rhymes with an off-kilter flow. It sounds elegant although the content … Continue reading Yung Plato Brings A Fresh Sound to Hip Hop In His Newest Track “Ese Vato Fre$h”

Cayo Coco Gives Us An In-Depth​ Look Into His Mind​ In New Track, “Somebody”

I needed this today. Cayo Coco has a poetic and existential way of expressing his emotions, confusion, and heartbreak. His way of approaching music couldn’t be better expressed than in Somebody Else. I felt like he was inside of my mind, laying out the lyrics I wish I could write. In the beginning of his relationship with his ex, he saw someone that was beautiful … Continue reading Cayo Coco Gives Us An In-Depth​ Look Into His Mind​ In New Track, “Somebody”

Kiraly Enters A New Phase In His Career With New Track “FAKE”

Kiraly (formerly Kiraly Payne) has yet to disappoint me. The rapper/producer/engineer has been on a roll, progressing as an artist and establishing his fan base. His latest, FAKE, is a step up in the expression of his thoughts, feelings, and reflections. The JUSTWill & G Koop produced record is his most abstract in terms of themes and delivery. It serves as a personal reminder to stay … Continue reading Kiraly Enters A New Phase In His Career With New Track “FAKE”

D2X Returns To Our Pages With Soulful New Track “Can I Live”

The last time we heard from D2X, it was the tail end of May. He had just dropped his IANAF project which has subsequently hit over 15K plays.

Amare Symoné Holds Her Own As A Solo Artist With New Track “smePPL”

Better late than never! Songstress Amare Symoné first caught my ear as one half of The Injured Party, a duo made up of herself and Musa Reems. These two Chicagoians put together an awe-inspiring self-titled EP in May which brought a lot of attention and universal praise towards these two. Both compliment their respective strengths and have easily recognizable chemistry. I always knew Amare could hold … Continue reading Amare Symoné Holds Her Own As A Solo Artist With New Track “smePPL”

The Village Do It For The Culture On Their Previously Unreleased Track “Cold World”

The Village has been on my radar for almost a year now. The Philly duo of Dizzy & Maye have always reminded me of that early 2000’s hip hop era – when the likes of Aesop Rock, Dilla, and MF Doom were at their peak. I’ve noted before that they choose excellent instrumentals to rhyme over, utilizing soul, free form jazz, and the classic underground. They also … Continue reading The Village Do It For The Culture On Their Previously Unreleased Track “Cold World”

ATL’s KasFlow Blew Me Away With His Vibe Heavy New Track “Roleplay”

It always impresses me when an artist can put together a one-minute track and still blow me away. Another song to add to this exclusive list is KasFlow’s Roleplay – a piece of art that is an essential listen to any fan of music. Roleplay is a scratchy, hard-hitting record that gives us an intimate look inside Kas’ mind. The structure and rhymes are playful, oftentimes invoking … Continue reading ATL’s KasFlow Blew Me Away With His Vibe Heavy New Track “Roleplay”

Fresh New Talent Sensei Dre Is In Attack Mode On His Newest Freestyle “No Smoke”

Sensei Dre is one of the freshest talents I’ve heard located just outside of Chicago. He’s put a lot of work in with some solid singles and a well received project, Live Free/Soul’d Out. The man can do it all, hopping on abstract instrumentals, using unique vocal techniques, and, most recently, spitting his heart out on a new freestyle titled No Smoke. Although it’s a … Continue reading Fresh New Talent Sensei Dre Is In Attack Mode On His Newest Freestyle “No Smoke”

ENIGMATIC MC JOSH JENKINS MAKES HIS DEBUT WITH CHARGED SINGLE “CROWN”

The value that platforms like Soundcloud and Bandcamp have given to independent artists cannot be understated, its detachment from industry politics allows music to speak for itself transcending image, marketing, or timing. This is evident in the sudden release of what appears to be Wisconsin MC Josh Jenkins’ debut single Crown. A charged single addressing systematic racial inequality over production from Austinfig that bubbles under … Continue reading ENIGMATIC MC JOSH JENKINS MAKES HIS DEBUT WITH CHARGED SINGLE “CROWN”

Zip Dot Is Back With A Bar Heavy Track & Video, “Midnight”

Zip Dot has had a landmark year. The Chicago MC has dropped 10 songs in 2017 alone, and none have missed the mark. With the help of both SoundCloud and YouTube, Zip has built a strong (and growing) fan base. If you’ve been rocking with us for awhile, you already know I’m a huge fan of his work and get geeked when something new impacts. He loves to … Continue reading Zip Dot Is Back With A Bar Heavy Track & Video, “Midnight”
