Fades World – Young Fades

Young Fades makes any marketer happy. He is extremely active on his socials and clearly has seen success from some Twitter campaigns, one post having nearly 4.4 million views. This is how Young Fades came onto my radar. Honestly, a white dude out of Oklahoma rapping in camo shirts is not usually my go-to listeningContinue reading “Fades World – Young Fades”

Charlie Eastern – Jalen Santoy

If you’ve never heard of Jalen Santoy before, don’t worry…most people haven’t. The young, LA-based rapper provides listeners with smooth flows, thoughtful lyrics, and hard-hitting beats. While remaining fairly quiet over the past few years, Santoy released Charlie Santoy in 2016 and has left us with a beautifully done album. Colossus isn’t always about covering what’sContinue reading “Charlie Eastern – Jalen Santoy”

Death Race for Love – Juice WRLD

I am still not 100% sure where this strange craze of emo rap came from. Juice WRLD first came on my radar, as well as many of hip-hop listeners’, over the past summer with his debut album Goodbyes & Good Riddance. Obviously, there are the sure signs like XXXTentacion and Lil Peep who seem toContinue reading “Death Race for Love – Juice WRLD”

STN MTN/Kauai – Childish Gambino

Today we’re gonna go back to 2014 when Childish dropped two EP’s, one titled STN MTN exclusively on Datpiff and the other as Kauai on all major streaming platforms. Two completely different EP’s dropped within minutes of each other that when put together make Childish’s STN MTN/Kauai masterpiece. The names of the EP’s have a lot toContinue reading “STN MTN/Kauai – Childish Gambino”

Future Hndrxx Presents: The WIZRD – Future

To be honest, part of the reason the content cycle at Colossus has been slow for #NewMusicMondays is that there hasn’t been an overwhelming amount of music dropped in the first two months of this year. Later this week I will be covering another new album as a gift to you loyal readers but forContinue reading “Future Hndrxx Presents: The WIZRD – Future”

Resurrection – RudeManners

It’s a new year at Colossus Music! That being said, I wanted to kick off the 2019 vibes by talking about an extremely talented artist and actually one of my friends who goes by RudeManners. Dalton Mannerud (Mannerud…RudeManners) is a 22-year-old Lo-Fi artist from Windham, New York. To say he’s groovy is an understatement, myContinue reading “Resurrection – RudeManners”

i am > i was – 21 Savage

The title of 21 Savage’s latest drop really defines what this album means to him. He has come a long way from the “murder rap” he coined with his early 2015 mixtapes The Slaughter Tape and Slaughter King. Sure, he touches on those topics on a few tracks but for the most part, i am > iContinue reading “i am > i was – 21 Savage”

Being Human In Public – Jessie Reyez

Raw emotions and strained vocals almost always mean you are listening to Jessie Reyez. Her words are powerful as she brings us through her struggles with life and love. Being Human In Public is Reyez’s first full-length project following the release of a vast number of singles and an EP. I first discovered the Canadian singerContinue reading “Being Human In Public – Jessie Reyez”
