2K19 REVIEWED: YEOJ – YEOJ WORLD 3

PRODUCER: YEOJ SOUNDCLOUD TWITTER INSTAGRAM Yeoj World 3, the long-awaited third instalment of the eponymous producer’s mixtape series starring friends and collaborators from across the hip-hop spectrum. The usual suspects crop up here (Josen, Dawszn), as well as plenty of new connections (30Rock, Loudpack Kap). The majority of these artists (there’s only really a couple of superfluous tracks here) helps […]

NEW VISUAL: JAH-MONTE – CALLIS OVAL (AUNTIE ERICA HOUSE)

Back with a new visual drop, Jah-Monte has once again delivered a dope video for one of his past works, in this case ‘Callis Oval (Auntie Erica House)’. Like his previous explorations into visual delivery, his latest effort focuses heavily on the rapper’s self-proclaimed (though undoubtedly deserved) status as the ‘Best Rapper In Charlotte’ by immediately displaying his now trademark […]

Interview Season 2: 4jay

Rapper/producer/DJ 4jay is one of the underground’s most important figures, making beats not only for himself but litany of up and coming artists practicing the dark UNDAWORLD style. He should be one of the most sought after beatmakers full stop, in my opinion. Enjoy this eye-opening interview and stream his music. 1. Your most recent project FUCK OFF: DA MIXTAPE […]

Interview Season 2: Radez

UNDA member Radez is one of the nicest rappers in the whole posse, a technical and bludgeoning artist with a great ear for beats.

NEW SINGLE: JOHN ALONE – NEVERLAND

There’s a lot of things that I could compare English singer John Alone’s new single ‘Neverland’ to (Frank Ocean is the most obvious influence), but the artistry evident in this brief but euphoric single makes it more than obvious that; not only a singer but also as a songwriter and producer; the Nigerian-born R&B crooner has a whole lot of […]

2K19 REVIEWED: LO$TBOY$YNDICATE – PERPETUAL

ARTISTS: LO$TBOY$YNDICATE SOUNDCLOUD TWITTER INSTAGRAM Carolina hip-hop collective LO$TBOY$YNDICATE are undeniably a fascinating collective. A four piece whose approach to rapping is heavily inspired by the exuberant, fun-loving sound of late 80’s/90’s groups like De La Soul and The Pharcyde, LO$TBOY$ have crafted a discography undeniably worthy of attention. From the dense, hazy material on Doinks n’ Dumplins to the […]

Interview Season 2: Dr. Alien

An elite producer working with some big names in the underground, Dr. Alien has really set himself apart from his contemporaries with a consistently dark, oppressive approach to production. His grasp of melody is astounding, and based on what I’ve heard from him over the last few months I’d confidently say he could tackle almost any style. I say this […]

2K19 REVIEWED: SEKWENCE – WONDER IF HELL HAS A BUFFET

ARTIST: SEKWENCE SOUNDCLOUD TWITTER INSTAGRAM SeKwence’s fifth project in under twelve months and his debut album proper, WONDER IF HELL HAS A BUFFET is, somehow, also his greatest to date. The array of production feels like a beautiful amalgam of the beatmakers who’ve aided him throughout his career, ranging from Budget Cuts 2 mastermind Killer Kane to the legend Thelonious […]

2K19 REVIEWED: JAH-MONTE – JEWELRY RAP

ARTIST: JAH-MONTE BANDCAMP TWITTER INSTAGRAM Jewelry Rap is a product of two things: it’s definitely the result of a talented MC’s love and appreciation for hip-hop and all things to do with it, and it’s indisputably the culmination of amazing chemistry between the rapper Jah-Monte and the producer Lavonte Hines aka FLLS. The eight new collaborations the duo lay down […]

Wavami is a crazy diverse rapper who over the last two years has built up a solid discography full of ethereal bangers and dreamy monologues.

NEW VISUAL: JAH-MONTE – BEST RAPPER IN CHARLOTTE PT. 5

Ohio rapper Jah-Monte is offering us a wholly new concept with a new drop that acts as a visualisation of the powerful two part track ‘Best Rapper In Charlotte Pt. 5’ from earlier in the year. The song is still just as smooth instrumentally as it was when it dropped back in March, and the chilled, tense video that now […]

Interview Season 2: SeKwence Pt. 2

If you follow me on any social media and don’t know who this guy is, I’m definitely doing something wrong.
