Hopsin - I Need Help Artwork

Hopsin - I Need Help

e-dubble - No Rest For The Wicked Artwork

e-dubble - No Rest For The Wicked

An often overlooked reality is that artists are fans, too. Just like you or I, emcees and producers find daily inspiration in their fellow artists just as much as the average fan. Case in point, DMV ambassador e-dubble. After...Read More

Kyle Rapps ft. Adrienne Mack-Davis - The Sky’s on Fire

Mapei - Don’t Wait Artwork

Mapei - Don’t Wait

Listening to music is such hard work that it can be tempting to put off a new track till the next day, and enjoy it with fresh ears. As far as Mapei‘s current single, Don’t Wait, though, I suggest you do as the...Read More

AWAR

AWAR - Let It Shine

To paraphrase a song I learned in Sunday School, if you’ve got a light, you should Let It Shine. AWAR doesn’t need to be told twice—for the NYC native, flaunting what he’s got comes naturally. On the first...Read More

Grieves - Serpents Artwork

Grieves - Serpents

For a lot of us, the phrase “Winter & the Wolves” immediately calls to mind Game of Thrones (After all, the new season starts this weekend.), but after Serpents slithers into your brain, you will only be able...Read More

Cassie Steele - MAD Artwork

Cassie Steele - MAD

Let’s play Name That Artist! Canadian, a sound made for the radio, and had a big role Degrassi. No, not Drake, though that’s not a bad guess; we are actually talking about Cassie Steele. Coming out of nowhere with...Read More

MindsOne & Kev Brown ft. Homeboy Sandman - Pop

Locksmith ft. Leah Tysse - Hardest Song Ever Artwork

Locksmith ft. Leah Tysse - Hardest Song Ever

For some rappers, making music that’s “hard” just means yelling really f**king loud about firearms. Locksmith‘s Hardest Song Ever, however, contains no gat talk or vocal cord-shredding shouts. Rather, it draws...Read More

Ibn Inglor - CHAMBERS Artwork

Ibn Inglor - CHAMBERS

DAMAGED, the last single off Ibn Inglor‘s forthcoming full-length, won positive reviews for its hard-hitting verses but left certain fans hungry for something a little more adventurous. The Windy City emcee must have...Read More
