One of the most buzzworthy new artists in the A Sy Ari Da Kid drops a freestyle to your fave club hit OG Bobby Johnson. Dude is spittin and it’s definitely off the dome. I can respect an MC who can hold it down over this beat. Sy Ari brings a new and interesting take to the trap beat from an artist who is definitely more than meets the eye. Check out the freestlyle below and let me know what you think!
Southern rapper Miles Stone delivers a laidback, “chilly” track just in time for the end of the semester to ease that finals stress. KCGC [you'll have to listen to the song to find out what it stands for] is a track which show off Miles’s talent not only as an MC, but also shows he can carry quite the tune. I am blessed to say that I heard the track before it laid down and all the vocals are very authentic: if you go to one of Stone’s upcoming shows you will definitely leave impressed. KCGC comes from the upcoming project Hard Liquor. Check here for a link when it drops. Let me know what you think about the track.
I’ve been keeping up with Bieber’s Music Mondays for the past six weeks, like the true Belieber I am. While I called it a while back that oce JB turned 18, the music would gradually be more R&B and sexual, nothing could really prepare me for this week’s collab. The Biebs decided to team up with none other than Chance the Rapper to bring us Confident, a very groovable track with dope production and an always spectacular verse from Chance. This has really been his year, from Acid Rap debatably being mixtape of the year to touring with Eminem and Kendrick; now this big-time exposure to a demographic that may not have taken notice to him yet. I think this duet is a dope move for all parties involved. Justin is due to drop a digital album on December 16 entitled Journals. Check out the track below and let me know; who do you think this track benefited more; Justin or Chance?
I was blessed to stumble across Pierre Solo earlier this year and I must say I have become a pretty big fan. A true nerd like me had to appreciate his cool usage of Old English literature in his last video Nevermore. He now brings us his latest single, entitled Mind Vacation. The track is a relaxing experience between a man and a woman as they engage in “herbal remedies. I can get jiggy with it. Love the unique style that Solo has. Check it out below.
New dopeness from Memphis emcee Ervin Mitchell. Being from so close to Memphis, you know I gotta rock with him. Somewhat of a hometown hero. The track is called Stupid Bitch [but is not as discriminatory as it sounds]. It features Young Ransom and B.C. It’s from his upcoming mixtape entitled EDM. Check the track out below, shake your dreads to it, and let me know what you think!
Two of the top New Atlanta artists FatKidsBrotha [of the buzzing collective Two9] team up with singer/rapper Miloh Smith to drop dope visuals for the track Magic. This song and video puts on for Atlanta and makes any hipster that lives here immediately vibe with it. The track is laid back and smooth, going with the style of both artists. Check out the vid below. If you live in the A, you’sre sure to see some familiar sights.

The opening night of A3c was a dope one. Before Rich Homie Quan came out and shut the place down [even though it was only a 3-song set], up-and-coming New Atlanta artist Forte Bowie came out and did his thing. He performed a number of songs, mostly hits from his most recent project Vice Haus, that showed of his versatiliy as an artist. The tape has songs that range from 808s and trap beats to other songs where Forte sings to his ex about the damage she did. The show, like the tape, was dope. This was my first time meeting Forte and i must say he made me a fan. Check out the footage below and check back for music from the artist on the rise.
2013 has been a bomb year for music so far and it’s not stopping now. Actor turnt rapper turnt singer Danny Glover aka Childish Gambino is vamping up for the release of his album Because the Internet by leaking a series of dopeee songs. The most recent is 3005, which he dropped today. In it, he spits as usual then surprises us as always with his pipes on the chorus. It’s a track that the ladies will love while still keeping men hooked on every word with his killer lyricism and awesome delivery. The song is definitely catchy; I’ve already listened to it like 3005 times. I’m excited about the star’s decision to leave hit show Community to focus on music. Update: In an interview with The Breakfast Club, Gliver expressed that he did not in fact leave Community for music. He left because he “didn’t want to work for anybody”. Now he has his own show in the works. Turn up! Check out the track below and let me know what you think!
New sounds from two of my fave up-and-coming artists and the coolest cats I know. Locomotion is Miles Stone cool, laid-back vibe-able track. It’s already dope but he amps it up a notch by bringing in fellow Southern artist Clay James [formerly known as CJ Da Fly Guy]. Check out the song below and look out for more new music from both artists coming soon. Comment and let me know what you think.
