By Kaitlin

With his mixtape soon to be released, King Kalel is here to share his new single titled, “Can’t Get Enough”.

Rome – “Wasn’t Built In A Day” [Mixtape]

By Kaitlin

Bronx Native rapper, Rome, returns to offer up his most recent and most meaningful body of work.

Being raised between the East Side of Harlem and the Bronx, Sounds of Rome (fka. Zeuss) is a true testament to the classic phrase, “Rome wasn’t built in a day.” Under The Alias, Zeuss, he started his musical journey as a freshman in high school, releasing solo projects, Money Is The Motive, The After Effect, and The Collection.

After close to a decade of creating work as Zeuss, he needed a rebirth, a breath of fresh air. Marrying his influences from the braggadocios, legendary wrestler, Ted Dibiase, aspirations of being a comedian with his experiences as a native New Yorker, Rome was born.

“The project was inspired on new beginnings. The dead flowers represent my past life and how I wanted to leave my old self in the past and reintroduce myself to a new audience with a new sound, perspective, overall look on my present life.”

Aaron Knight – When It Gets Knight Out (EP)

By Mo Indigo

When It Gets Knight Out acquaints us with Newburgh native Aaron Knight, a former basketball star turned musician creating new-age R&B masterpieces decorated with poetic lyrics and moving harmonies.

The Queens based singer/songwriter creates a strong introduction with “My Time” a gritty opener with solid rhymes. He illustrates vivid imagery in “Okay” and “Holy.” “Thrizzy” and “OG” ooze Knight’s confident, upfront nature.

Aaron eases any escalating emotional tension with Dancehall-inspired “Whine”, smoke heavy “Roll It” and penultimate suave record “Dinero”. “Life to Live” acts as a reassuring closer, solidifying his destined greatness.

WIGKO explores moments of euphoria, hustle and ambition. Knight maintains a strong, energetic presence in his project. The future of R&B is in good hands.

By Kaitlin

After ​garnering over 400k ​listens for the buzzing single, Mr. Narly ​finishes off 2016 strong by ​debuting the ​appropriately tropical new video for “Foreign.”

All may not be what it seems for the Florida-born, Virginia-raised artist, who seemingly washes up alone on a stunning shoreline. Upon exploring the island, he comes across a bikini-clad beauty who supplies Narly with the necessary hydration (grapes and ice-cold water, of course) and all-too-important company.

​Peep the visual, and ​be sure to support the track, which is now available on all major digital retailers and streaming platforms.

AO! Premiere: The SEVENth – 001 DEMOS (Mixtape)

By Uptown Toney

Fresh from touring the US and Canada on the “Be Ever Wonderful’ tour with his AGO crew member Waldo, The SEVENth returns with a new demo tape aptly titled 001 DEMOS.

The 10-track offering showcases The SEVENth’s wide range of application as both an overall producer and artist. On records like “J Train Connections,” “Baby, Keep It Real,” and “If It’s OK,” the Michigan-natives icy production and shivering synths take center focus. Whereas on joints like “Milans’s Hideout,” “Stay W U.” plus “Moon Light,” we hear the dual threat come into his own as a true emcee and rap-crooner.

The project includes additional production from Sango, Savon, and Mosaic as well as additional vocals from Marti Ragan, Waldo and Amos Rose. When speaking on 001 DEEMOS, The SEVENth said, “This collection of demos have been grabbing my attention; Most of them were created between Summer 2014 and the Fall of 2016. Some were made with midi keyboards in Fruity Loops and others with analog gear in Logic.”

Majority of the music was created in The SEVENth’s Michigan home studio including “Stay W U.,” his favorite track. “The record “Stay W U.” was my favorite to create because it was so fun. I created the content based upon thinking about stuff Sango could relate too… which is pretty much sharing art, and getting back home/where love is,” says The SEVENth. “I want folks to listen to these demos mostly to get a closer listen into my sound, how I approach my art, and for a taste of whats to come in the future.”

Stream the entire collection of demos below from The SEVENth. Look for more from him and the AGO crew in the near future.

First Play: Kemba – Negus

By Uptown Toney

During times of turmoil and civil unrest, we the people can always rely on one thing, great music that reflects the times. I know, much of the music that’s being cooked up feels like some microwaved day-old cardboard based, tomato paste flavored pizza from Little Caesars, but there are still artists that are cheffing up savory material.

Just this year alone we’ve had Chicago’s Vic Mensa drop There’s Alot Going On and Compton’s YG put out Still Brazy. Two amazing projects that reflected not only the times but their inner struggles as a black man in America. Although overlooked, another artists to release an immaculate socially relevant rap project this year is Bronx native KEMBA with Negus.

For those that aren’t hip to KEMBA, just know he’s not a newbie by any means. Rapping since he was nine years old, the emcee formally went by the name YC the Cynic. That is until recently. “I got my name [YC the Cynic] at a time when the coolest thing was to get your name from the people in your hood. So being named YC when I was a kid was cool then but as I turned 21, 22, 23, it became less and less who I am,” KEMBA tells us. “Nowadays, you don’t have to be named by someone to be authentic. It’s no like that any more.”

The name change came after KEMBA released his last project back in 2013, GNK [God, Nigga, King]. This breakthrough effort by the emcee had him as the topic of conversation when it comes to top tier New York lyricists. Three years later, KEMBA has returned to expand on his critically acclaimed LP with something of the times. In comes Negus. Named after the Ethiopian word for …read more

Joyce Wrice & Kay Franklin – Rocket Science

By Uptown Toney

We just saw Joyce Wrice kill the stage in her debut NYC headline performance and now, new music! This 2-track delight from the LA-based singer-songwriter was created alongside crooner Kay Franklin features some super groovy soul sounds from Wrice’s right-hand, producer Mndsgn.

Opening up the collaborative double-sided 7-inch Neo-Soul single is “Rocket Science.” It has a tranquil quality to it no doubt brought on by Mndsgn hazy cords and steady drums that match the two singers euphoric harmonies quite nicely. On the B-side, “Play Pretend” features more tranquil vibes but a bit more rhythmic. On this cut Joyce sings about holding back feelings for her love interest, the polar opposite approach of “Rocket Science.”

Released via Akashik Records, stream both tracks below and be sure to copp the limited edition 7″ vinyl here. Look for our interview with Joyce to drop soon!

Presston – Resolution (Mixtape)

By Uptown Toney

On the heels of our in-depth interview with Presston, the rising crooner released a 3-track tape titled Resolution. As he told us it would be, Resolution is a lot slower than Press’ two previous projects – Opening and Rising Action – and resembles his older music. He slowed down the down the tempo to create a sensual aura that’s perfect for these cool winter days ahead.

In his newest collection of sounds The Cheltenham, PA artist recruits LA based singer-songwriter Breana Marin on a “Discretion,” a personal favorite off the EP for it’s 3AM vibe. Take a listen to Resolution in its entirety below as it serves as the closing in triage of EP’s that ultimately create one solid body of work by Presston.

Freda James – Pushing You Away

By Uptown Toney

Just came across this gem of a track over on Neon Gold and fell in audio love. Now I know the ‘gem’ is an overly used term to describe an exceptional discovery but it’s sooo needed in this case. It’s extremely rare to find a singer than can just float over pulsating production like Freda James on “Pushing You Away.”

On top of Bay Area inspired retro Disco vibes crafted by producers Dave Weingarten and Noah Breakfast, Freda’s lush vocals swirl around like a hallowed paper cone collecting warm cotton candy. This is the Brooklyn singers powerful love-driven debut record but rest assure you’ll be hearing more from her soon! Wine and grind to “Pushing You Away” below.

By OGKryssi

Listening to Arima Ederra‘s ‘Temporary Fixes’ EP, you may recognize her soft, angelic, yet soulful voice from previous collaborations with Chance The Rapper, Dizzy Wright, and JMSN.

Chuck$oDope – “Elevated”

By Kaitlin

South Jersey rapper/song-writer Chuck$oDope shares a new, Blasian Beats-produced single titled “Elevated.” Delivering some introspective lyricism over plenty of bass, Chuck$oDope is coming for it all.
“I used to be on the bottom, now a n**** elevated,” Chuck raps. Working his way to the top has been no easy task, as he recalls sleeping on the floor of the studio and taking some L’s to get to where he is today. Chuck is among a handful of artists from the South Jersey scene looking to have a huge 2017. If he’s able to release more music like this catchy offering, Chuck$oDope will get the job done.
Enjoy “Elevated” above and stay tuned for even more releases in the near future.

Get Familiar: SLEEPERCAMP

By Uptown Toney

For the past few years, NYC collective SLEEPERCAMP have been creating waves with their work individually and as a crew. Recently SLEEPERCAMPers Jimi Tents & Jay Bel released a new project dubbed Sex, You Can Dance Two bringing interests in the crew to new heights.

On November 15th, the Brooklyn rap collective will play their debut show on at Baby’s All Right. Going down 7PM in their hometown of Brooklyn no less, the collective’s event is free with RSVP – slprcampaign2016.splashthat.com.

We caught up with crewmembers Jimi Tents and Jay Bel recently to find out all there is to know about the SLEEPERCAMP, their new project and more for our latest edition of Get Familiar.


SLEEPERCAMP might be new for some but the original crew – consisting of Jimi the Rapper, Jay Bel, SedRoc, CHEEF LuckyLonji, Zay, MARZBOYGENIUS & Matt K Scott – has been buzzing in Brooklyn for some time now. “We formed the group at our high school in Crown Heights, Brooklyn. Lucky was the one who came up with the name SLEEPERCAMP,” says Jay Bel.

After its formation, each person was tasked to hold down a key role in the collective. “Jay and I were the rappers. Sed produces and raps, Lucky DJ’s, Zay DJ’s, and then we have members that makeup the other important elements that every group needs,” explains Jimi.

Unlike traditional, label created rap/R&B groups, all the SLEEPERCAMP members are like family. The way they mesh together is organic and genuine. It can be felt by the way they roll off one another in conversation and how smoothly the music comes together. “We knew from freestyling in the lunch room that we all had a chemistry,” notes Bel.

From the lunchroom to the booth, the guys began to get their buzz up …read more

Danny Blaze – “California Dreaming”

By Kaitlin

NC’s best, Danny Blaze, is back today with a much awaited new track.

Danny has come very far on his musical journey similar to some known rappers on the west coast. California Dreamingproduced by Cookin’ Soul, is about a possible future in Los Angeles with fellow North Carolina artists and celebrating success such as King Mez, Rapsody, Well$ and Brandon Ingram. Danny states, “It’s also just about appreciating California and their Hip-Hop, which I’ve been a huge fan of since I was 14.
Looking for a way out of a gang affiliated lifestyle that almost cost him his life several times, his escape route was found upon discovering he could rap – well. So the very idea of being better than you were yesterday and living out your dreams is a reality. Forming a group known as The Koolest, he toted his southern energy and added flare from his soul and west coast influences that garnered him the opportunity to open up for Big K.R.I.T., Juicy J, A$AP FERG, Joey Fatts, Key!, Smoke DZA, and radio play at Raleigh K97.5 FM. The success has continued for Danny as he’s continued to push himself. The future is looking bright enough as it is, but the possibility of California sun makes it even brighter.

Allow Me to Introduce: ABIR

By Uptown Toney

For years, Wale was the only artist many could think of when it came to the music scene in the D.C., Maryland, and Virginia (DMV) area. And it wasn’t long ago when the widely regarded next up talents out of the region were Fat Trel, Shy Glizzy, Black Cobain and Lightshow. Wow have times changed. Similar to two companies merging after a buyout, forward-thinking artists like GoldLink, Jay IDK, Innanet James, Matt McGhee and Beau Young Prince have intergraded and carved out their own niches to revamp the local culture and beyond.

While this new generation of experimental genre-blending artists are keeping Rap exciting by helping to push the genre forward, it’s easy to overlook the singer-songwriters like Abhi//Dijon, Ari Lennox and Maségo who continue to boost the DMV’s profile as a premier Funk and Neo-Soul destination. One of the most intriguing acts to emerge out of the DMV is Queens-based songstress, ABIR. The young Etta James-inspired singer’s dynamic production, Jazz-infused vocals and socially aware lyrics are a breath of fresh air in today’s OVO inspired age.

We got a chance to sit down with ABIR to find out all you need to know and more.

Born in the North African country of Morocco, ABIR grew up in Fez, the country’s second largest city. At the age of 6, ABIR and her family left Fez to reside just outside of our nation’s capital making Arlington, Virginia their new home. It was here that ABIR caught the music bug and stumbled upon her talents as a vocalist.

Influenced early on by Jazz and Blues music, the singer credits her dad for putting her on to acclaimed artists Etta James and Ella Fitzgerald. “Growing up, my dad was a limo driver and would play Jazz music for his clients. He had this one CD by Etta …read more

First Play: Swift – Nights On Concord

By Uptown Toney

Once known as Young Swift the artist signed to Akon’s Konvict Muzik/Charge Nation that ran with DJ Nando, a beloved staple in Atlanta’s Nightlife & Hip-Hop community, Durham, North Carolina native Swift has come a long way. Early on, the Atlanta mainstay’s style was more Boom Bap and 90’s Hip-Hop but with time comes change and growth. Under the helm of Epic Records, Swift recently released a new project titled Nights On Concord. The project shows the growth and new more melodic sound the buzzing artist now has.

Coming in 16-tracks deep, Nights On Concord is reflection on a moment in Swift’s life where things were more carefree. Fans are painted a vivid picture of a guy in his late teens living in a bachelor pad back with his boys. As you can expect, it’s a lot of partying, self-discovery, wonder and uncertainty.

Although he’s headed in a new direction and away from the moody, sad and serious music he had been making, Swift still incorporates that 90’s feel in his music but brings his own style to the table. “I have a 90’s style of rap and melodies. It’s an infused sound. That whole era of music influenced me. A lot of the music I make is derived from that era. I just add my own flavor to it,” says Swift. His lead single, “Pull Up” is clear representation of that.

Produced by Dreek Beatz, “Pull Up” samples Jodeci’s 1993 record “What About Us.” The emerging crooner serenades the ladies with his smooth vocals on the record before doubling down and busting out the bars. The infectious record was the first song Swift recorded on the yearlong creation process for Night On Concord and set the tone for everything else. “When I made …read more

The Outlawz – “So Much Pain” ft. Mike Green

By Kaitlin

“Makaveli” turned 20 this past Saturday and Ryan Elder and the remaining Outlawz thought it fitting to release one of the last recordings of Hussein Fatal as a tribute. The original recording was something Hussein and San Antonio producer, Ryan Elder of Elder Entertainment, LLC worked on together just prior to his tragic July 2015 death. After some much needed healing time, Ryan decided to rework the track with Ace1 and reached out to Young Noble and Edi A Mean who were anxious to put the finishing touches on it to honor their fallen comrade. Also making an appearance is Elder’s up-and-coming R&B artist, Mike Green, who you will be hearing much more from in the coming months.

“It’s a powerful record. We don’t like to re-do 2pac songs, but I think we did this one justice and did it in a different way.” Young Noble says of the track.

“With being one of the last tracks we got to do with our brother Hussein Fatal, it has turned into a dedication song for him, Afeni, and all our other fallen comrades. R.I.P.!” adds Edi A Mean. “I was just honored to be a part of the project and thankful to be able to pay homage to Fatal, Kadafi, and Pac.” Ryan finishes.

“So Much Pain” has also been blessed with a Dr. Teeth-directed video which just hit the channels this weekend and will be making the rounds soonest.

Nacho Picasso – “Anti Hero Vol. 1” [Mixtape]

By Kaitlin

Seattle emcee Nacho Picasso drops off a brand new 9-track project titled “Anti Hero Vol. 1,” executive produced by Harry Fraud. Here’s what Nacho had to say about the album, which was premiered via Mass Appeal;

“I’ve kinda always been regarded as a villain, but I’ve evolved a lot since my early days, and I understand the universe way more now, than I did when I first got in the game. Anti Hero represents that. Songs like ‘Lizard King Jr’ show my weird, paranoid conspiracy theorist side while displaying my unorthodox wordplay and drugged out sexcapades. ‘Grunge’ is close to my to my lil heart! I rarely do emo songs cause I’m lightskint and emo enough but this one reflects on my current struggles with who I am, while paying homage to my city. ‘Voices In My Head,’ is my Nacho Kubrick shit…My Edgar Allen ‘Poe-up!’ This is a scary story I made up in my head on some American Psycho/The Shining shit!’ The Anti Hero is the ‘rebirth of Nacho.”

Are You Ready for ‘All Def Comedy’?

By Ashley Outrageous

No but seriously, ARE-YOU-READY? Come this Saturday November 12th Russell Simmons will debut the relaunch of his 90’s hit Def Comedy Jam as ‘All Def Comedy’ and I can’t wait! I mean, who doesn’t love a good laugh?

Premiering exclusively on HBO, the special is based on “All Def Comedy Live,” a weekly comedy experience produced by All Def Digital (ADD), Simmons’ cross-platform media company, in Los Angeles. What’s cool to me is that I’ve actually seen a lot of my friends on the West Coast share their time at these shows via social media over the past year or two so to see it now land a spot on one of the TV largest networks proves that it MUST be good. For me it’s very rare that I get a chance to attend any live stand-ups so I’m really glad I’ll get to watch this from the comfort of my home along with all my current HBO series I’m addicted to! Having Russell Simmons behind this is just the cherry on top in my eyes as comedy is his standing ground. Def Comedy Jam debuted in 1992 (whoa, I was 2) and was live on the network till 1997 and then returned in 2006. 10 years later and boom, he’s back with an all new show! In case you didn’t know, Def Comedy Jam was the show to launch the careers of such comedy legends as Bernie Mack, Dave Chappelle, Chris Tucker, Martin Lawrence, Cedric the Entertainer and Bill Bellamy. Yep! One great after another, so who knows who will be the next!

So now it’s time for Russell to introduce the world to new faces. Taped before a live audience on September 7th at the Avalon Theatre in Los Angeles, the show will feature stand-up performances in a variety of …read more

Indie Entrepreneur: How Sean Kelly Started the Successful Clothing Company Jersey Champs (@JerseyChampsLLC)

By FuNkwoRm

In our Independent Entrepreneur series, IndieHIpHop.net profiles individuals living the indie life in business in order to give inspiration to others who want to pursue their dreams. In today’s spotlight, we interviewed entrepreneur Sean Kelly about his successful startup, Jersey Champs.

Indie Hip Hop: So what was the inspiration behind starting Jersey Champs?

Sean Kelly: I have always loved jerseys, but felt there was no way of expressing myself with the standard “team-issued” jerseys that also cost a fortune. I created Jersey Champs when Drake dropped his album Views From the 6 and my first jersey ever made was the Views one pictured below. I love the creativity behind all the designs. They truly are unique and let you stand out from the crowd.

IHH: Who designs the Jerseys?

SK: I currently have a design team of one creative director named Al (https://www.instagram.com/helmetconcepts/) and 5 graphic designers that create all of the designs for Jersey Champs.

IHH: How big is the team behind the company?

SK: Right now, Jersey Champs is ran by two people. We are both college students who take pride in our company. At the moment, we are trying to expand and hire more people to keep up with the demand.

IHH: When an unpredictable event happens, like the results of a sports championship, what’s the grind like for getting something out quickly?

SK: Our team of designers are always ready to create something. We make sure our team is always aware of big events such as the World Series, new albums and anything else that is trending. When the Cubs won the World Series, I immediately had my designers come out with multiple designs because I knew they would be selling like candy.

Supakali – “1000” ft. Jay Pres

By Kaitlin

In a span of three years, emerging Atlanta artist, Supakali, has accomplished a lot, independently. He has released two projects, opened up for Rick Ross in Washington DC, performed in venues and festival stages across the US, and is always winning over new listeners, while expanding his fan base. Over the Summer, the Georgia native took on the Big Apple as he made a temporary move to focus on his music career.

During his stay, Supakali recorded new music, shot a music video, performed a couple shows, and linked up with Harlem’s own, Jay Pres – who has worked with artists such as Dave East and Tray Pizzy. Together, the two emcees are a dynamic duo in the studio and it’s evident on their first ever collaboration. With Kev Cairo on the beat, “1000” will have you cranking up your speakers and singing along to the hook.

Forget “keeping it 100,” Supakali and Jay Pres keep it all the way 1,000!

Chris Brown, OHB & Section Boyz – Attack The Block [New Mixtape]

By Jake Miosge

Surprise! Breezy is back with another mixtape.

Along with OHB (Only Hood Bosses) and U.K.’s Section Boyz, Chris Brown returns with a 16-track project, Attack the Block.

Ray J, French Montana, Hoody Baby, Young Lo, and Young Blacc all pop up on this effort, which follows Chris Brown and OHB’s Before Da Trap: Nights in Tarzana mixtape, which dropped in April.

Breezy isn’t afraid to get raunchy either. On the French Montana-assisted “Erday,” he sings: “You a pretty little lady, fuck the devil out of you / I’m about to roll some dice, daddy needs some new shoes.”

But he isn’t just singing to the ladies. He also has a message for his foes. “Pull up, if you ‘bout it, ni**a,” he raps on “New Gang.” “Where I’m from, we body ni**as.”

Stream Attack the Block below.

By FuNkwoRm

It’s back!!! Every other Friday the dopest playlist of unheard indie artists will be post here and on Soundcloud. There’s no particular method connected to how I go about finding those to put on this list. For the most part, I do browse the posts here on Indie Wednesday but I also discover music from a number of different sources. If you’re not on this list, it doesn’t mean that I don’t like your music or I don’t think that you’re dope. These are just tracks that fit my particular taste. Hope you enjoy!

Sonder (Brent Faiyaz, Dpat, & Atu) – Too Fast

By Ashley Outrageous

Keep the slow jams coming! As if I didn’t love Brent Faiyaz’s AM Paradox EP enough he’s back with a tune from his group Sonder, a trio with a shared vision between long time production collaborators dpat and atu with writing and vocals carefully delivered by Brent.

By definition, Sonder is the realization that each random passerby lives a life as vivid and complex as your own and with that, our unique experiences all flow into one another. This is exactly what to expect from Sonder’s forthcoming Into EP – a cohesive and flowing body of work, a story.

The lead song “Too Fast” premiered by Zane Lowe on his Beats 1 Radio show was written by Faiyaz – the voice of Sonder – and dives into the stresses a 20-something might encounter in 2016.

Sonder met on the internet in an organic way and got right to work. In nearly two weeks, the trio locked themselves into Atu’s central Florida studio to create the 7 song EP, Into, which displays each members’ unique perspective creating the sound that is distinctively known as Sonder.

Daniel Ceasar ft. Kali Uchis – Get You

By Ashley Outrageous

As the days become colder and cuffing season approaches, my search for new slow jams is picking up. Let’s start things off with a smooth duet from Toronto singer-songwriter Daniel Ceasar titled “Get You” featuring AO! favorite, Kali Uchis. The track is all about Ceasar in awe of who he’s falling for and I am obsessed with it! I can’t tell you how many times I’ve listened to this track already.

“I met a girl and got very involved. She brought things and feelings out of me that I didn’t know I had. ‘Get You’ is a song of praise to a love I didn’t even feel I deserved at the time,” Caesar told Billboard, who premiered the track. “Being with someone you truly adore and being present enough in the moment that the world literally slows down and you ask yourself how did I stumble into this? I’m always shooting myself in the foot, but I’m in here.”

Prez P – “Who Got It” ft. Big NICS [Video]

By Kaitlin

Following their audio release, Florida artists Prez P and Big NICS unveil their visual for “Who Got It.” In the Uncle Luc-directed visual, the pair shows viewers what a day-in-the-life is like. Picturesque palm trees, smoky studio sessions, and fine-looking Facetimes are just a slice of the possibility. And while leisure time is enjoyable, the two are all about their business. Partaking in secretive bag deliveries and go-getting, the two uphold a classic cloak-and-dagger style operation. The ShowOffBeats-produced effort serves as the lead single off the duo’s forthcoming collaborative EP TooPlayerMode.

AO! Exclusive Interview: Kush Kelz

By Uptown Toney

For many of us, what our parents were listening to when we were young is what groomed our taste and style. Around my household, Rakim, Biggie, Big Daddy Kane, Mary J Blige, Michael Jackson, Prince, Jodeci and a host of other artists flourishing in the 90’s on the radio could be heard from the streets, on any given day of the week. As an East Coast kid living just 15 miles from New York, I favored the grimy “NY rap sound” that The Lox, DMX, Ja Rule, 50 Cent and the rest of G-Unit were putting out, but the rise of the mixtape age would later expose me to a southern influence.

DJ Drama, Don Cannon, DJ Smallz, DJ Folk and DJ Demp were the gatekeepers that helped Young Jeezy, Lil Wayne, T.I., Gucci, 8Ball & MJG to walk in the homes of music listeners far and near. To this day, the mixtape era and southern invasion has a major impact on Hip-Hop culture. The southern drawl can be heard loud and [in most cases] clear, in North East reppin’ rappers like French Montana, Desiigner, A$AP Rocky, Fetty Wap, and his fellow New Jersey native, Kush Kelz.

In Kush Kelz’s case, the south wasn’t his only influence. Kelz’s trials as Trinidadian immigrant in America, hustling to get by would also be a factor in the shipping of shape. After a string of performances at this years A3C music festival in Atlanta and the release of his newest body of work, I Think the Neighbors Know, we got a chance to catch up with Kelz for an AO! exclusive Interview. Check it out below!

Kev Rodgers – “Test Your Luck” ft. Kenif Muse

By Kaitlin

Kev Rodgers just released a vibrant new single, titled “Test Your Luck,” featuring fellow South Jersey native, Kenif Muse. Rodgers doesn’t take all of the credit for the production on this one, with Philly’s Kil Confirmed being a contributor as well.

The boastful, Latin-infused jam (sonically) gives a nod to Muse’s recent “Ya Tu Sabe” record, while offering it’s own unique vibes. Muse appears on the chorus of “Test Your Luck,” though Kev proves he isn’t afraid to do a bit of singing as well.

Fans can expect the official “Test Your Luck” music video and his “Mr. Rodgers Mondays” series in the very near future.

Moses Mosima – “Babies” [EP]

By Kaitlin

Philadelphia native Moses Mosima delivers his Babies EP. The 8-track debut effort finds the 20-something delivering a statement about the fragility of the base emotions we as humans share at birth: love, hurt, anger, and fear. Self-produced in its entirety, the rapper-singer reverts listeners back to what times were like when simplicity took the lead. Showcasing unrushed and pleasing vocals, he brings a timeless feel that never sounds forced, but rather blessedly and easy. Tying in themes of paranoia and lust, Babies is as an audio exploration of vulnerability and overtness–a testament to the 18 years spent staining the blank-slate to make this project. Overall the project stands as a final farewell to childhood.

C-Sharp – “Leaving With Us” ft. K-Lien & Chris Penn

By Kaitlin

First, he was setting the Internet ablaze with his leak “Hotbox,” a club ready, radio ready banger that celebrates the joys of smoking weed in the whip. (Hey, it’s legal in Cali, ain’t no crimes here.)

Then he set it off with “Welcome 2 the Juice” featuring Kevin Parx, Matt Allenn, and his label mate, Kaliber, He didn’t stop there though; he California rolled on, and dropped some turn-up tunes with the audio for the well-received “Flex On ‘Em,” a record about flexin’ towards bigger and better things in life that boasts that hyphy West coast sound as a teaser from his then upcoming mixtape, Driving Habits.

After dropping Driving Habits, hosted by Adrian Swish, C-Sharp is back again with a loosie from his upcoming project, Keep It Lit. C-Sharp teamed up with K-Lien and Chris Penn for their provocative single, “Leaving With Us,” produced by MadReal. It’s guaranteed to keep the party lit.

Yung Juko – “Pray For Me” [Video]

By Kaitlin

Lafayette singer/songwriter Yung Juko is back with “Pray For Me”, a visual in which he puts all the cards on the table; defying doctors’ predictions that he would never walk, growing up walking differently due to the congenital deformation known as Spina Bifida and the ridicule that came with it, and realizing that he had a talent for overcoming odds which would serve him well as he embarked on an entertainment career.

“Pray For Me” is Juko’s bravest video to date. There are no clever camera angles to hide his disability. In fact, he challenges the haters with his head held high. “I can feel the hate. I can see the hate. And the sad thing is, it’s in familiar faces.” he sings from the steps of a beautiful local church.

So, is R&B ready to embrace a disabled singer? Well, Juko’s first ever video, “Trust Nobody” has over 2 million views since it’s end of May release and his second, “Learn From The Streets” visual is nearing 300,000 views in just over 2 months. You tell me. And if it isn’t, nobody better tell his rabid fan base!

Tony Neek$ – “A Little Bit Of Me”

By Kaitlin

Denver’s Tony Neek$ created quite the buzz for himself last year with his debut project “Welcome To $un Valley.” Now to keep his momentum going, the emerging artist returns with a new project titled “A Little Bit of Me.” The 3-track EP is solely Neek$ – no features – with production from Khoazy (“Can We Ride”), I.D. (“Ocean Love”), and Larkin (“Me & Myself”).

Unlike his first release – which consisted more of up tempo, party vibe records – Neek$ decided to create R&B-style songs this go-around and more personal with his fans – hence the title “A Little Bit of Me.”

Mike Zombie & Benzi Ayo – “Ea$tside Story” [Mixtape]

By Kaitlin

With the South Jersey music scene receiving more spotlight than ever before, OVO Sound affiliated producer Mike Zombie teams up with fellow Willingboro native, Benzi Ayo for a 12-track project titled Ea$tside Story.

“Me and Mike came up around the same people…The people wanted this project, so we did it,” Benzi says.

With an undeniable chemistry, Mike and Benzi trade boastful rhymes over diverse production courtesy of Beasely Bangorz, Young And Fly, and of course, ZOTT (Zombie On The Track), who produced five tracks, not including his solo joint, “Night With The Henny.”

Mike and Benzi acknowledge their contrasting paths in life while finding irony in their similarities on tracks like “My Fault.”

“Crazy how we got the same goons, but we walk in different shoes,” Mike raps.

Another stand-out cut from the project is “North$tar,” where the two rappers sit back, and croon about their hard-work thus far. Reminding us the grind isn’t easy, Mike and Benzi are getting the job done and doing it their own way.

Fans are also treated to Benzi Ayo’s official “Dope” music video with the release of the project. Stream Mike Zombie and Benzi Ayo’s collaborative project, Ea$tside Story below.
