Camden – Mir Fontane

Growing up in the same household as his older brother, Leo’s younger brother Owen was exposed to a lot of the same music from his dad. He was raised on Led Zeppelin and the Beastie Boys and now has a heavy rotation of Chance the Rapper and Greta Van Fleet. This will be his first-everContinue reading “Camden – Mir Fontane”

[Single] Live From The Funk – J/O/E and Milky Beatz

Judging by the album cover, I would have to say this dude is from Texas. I am all about that because I feel that Texas-based hip-hop is ignored outside of Dallas, Houston, and Fort Worth, especially up in NYC. J/O/E breaks through that noise for me. His flows are calm and measured, yet pack aContinue reading “[Single] Live From The Funk – J/O/E and Milky Beatz”

[SINGLE] Heart Scars – Jeremy Pascal

Jeremy Pascal is not a single person but instead, three friends and their alter ego. Based in Vienna, Austria, Tino, Julian, and Nico make music about the experiences they share. This generates an interesting blend of emo rap and punk to give us tracks like their debut single “Good Drugs” and others like “Heart Scars”Continue reading “[SINGLE] Heart Scars – Jeremy Pascal”

[SINGLE] Less – Yury

This isn’t the first time I have listened to Yury and definitely will not be the last. I first discovered his single “Needless To Say” which was featured on the Colossus Heat Check. The Brooklyn based, Belarussian born rapper-producer has some serious style and a deep catalog. If you like “Less”, I am positive youContinue reading “[SINGLE] Less – Yury”

Helvetica – Jelani Aryeh

It’s been great find after great find lately. Jelani Aryeh is the newest to that list. The 17-year-old artist comes out of San Diego, CA. Jelani takes inspiration for his music from music and cinema alike. His first EP titled Suburban Destinesia is equally inspired by the movie “Palo Alto”, a movie about directionless teensContinue reading “Helvetica – Jelani Aryeh”

[Single] The More – Emes

It seems 2019 has been the year of breaking R&B. With the likes of Y.K Osiris, Ty Dolla $ign, Tory Lanez, and H.E.R having successful 2019 campaigns, it makes sense for Emes (pronounced MS) to start taking the R&B community by storm. After graduating from high school in Hawaii, Emes moved to Seattle to pursueContinue reading “[Single] The More – Emes”

[Single] Change Up – B. Aull

If you don’t already follow the Colossus Heat Check playlist, it’s a perfect example of artists you haven’t heard yet that need to get more attention. Rapper B. Aull is exactly this. Originally coming out of Maine but now in Brooklyn, he cultivates a very vibey, unique sound with his music. He has already receivedContinue reading “[Single] Change Up – B. Aull”

[Single] Six Feet Under – Kris Sobanksi x Meta P

Switching it up here a bit on my end with this one. I am all about different. “Six Feet Under” is different, but it works. With the likes of P.O.D and Eminem, this track combines an upbeat tempo with fast and understandable lyrics. However, its the chorus and change of pace that brings this trackContinue reading “[Single] Six Feet Under – Kris Sobanksi x Meta P”

[Single] “Amourire” – NA2S

French rap has to be one of my favorite foreign versions of hip hop to listen to. Yes, I understand a little of what is being said but what attracts me is the cadence of rapping in the French language. I recently came across NA2S, a Belgian rapper who’s got a super chill vibe. He’sContinue reading “[Single] “Amourire” – NA2S”

[Music Video] “Can I Breath” – Rudeboy Tha Shottah

Coming out of New Orleans’ 6th Ward, Rudeboy Tha Shottah is on a mission to add his name to Lousiana’s ever-growing list of successful rappers. Just 22, he has seen first hand how the justice system has affected his close friends, family, and community members. Through rap, he is pushing himself with the limited resourcesContinue reading “[Music Video] “Can I Breath” – Rudeboy Tha Shottah”
