There’s no denying Snootie Wild’s knack for making hits. The rising CMG representative has three of the hottest songs released over the last year in “Yayo,” “Made Me” and “No Kissing.” His newest offering “She’s A Keeper” will likely be of the same. With help from R&B sensation August Alsina and CMG Boss Yo Gotti, Wild strikes gold again with the radio friendly track. Made for the ladies out there, Wild and Gotti string quality verses together while Alsina delivers a smooth melodic hook that is easy on the ears. “She’s A Keeper” will appear on the rapper’s Go Mode EP, dropping September 23rd via iTunes.
Apollo Brown & Ras Kass Show Off The Visuals For Their Latest Single “Humble Pi”
Apollo Brown and Ras Kass are set to release their collaborative album Blasphemy next month and now we have visuals for “Humble Pi”, the latest single off the project. Linking up with the elite Detriot producer was a very wise decision for the West Coast emcee as Ras Kass sounds at home over the hard hitting boom-bap production provided by Brown. The music video highlights the street life lyrics of Ras Kass and captures some cool shadow effect shots. As the hook states, we hope that Ras Kass continues to ‘reinvent’ himself over Apollo Brown’s beats which never cease to impress.
Jared Evan and Selektah Continue Their Success With “Outside” Featuring Ransom
This is a classic case of it’s not broke don’t fix it as Jared Evan and acclaimed producer Statik Selektah link up again on their latest cut “Outside”. Evan and Statik released a collaborative album last year titled Boom Bap & Blues, and since the project was such a success the two have decided to create a sequel with Still Blue. “Outside” is a track that effectively demonstrates their chemistry together as Statik allows Evan’s strong vocals to shine over the soulfully sampled production. To provide us with more of a gritty contrast, New Jersey rapper Ransom is featured on the song and his contributions are an added welcome. It’s great to see Jared Evan and Statik Selektah continue their momentum and we will be awaiting their upcoming album.
It’s been a minute since my inbox had some new Jefe Replay in it. Well, this morning that changed. “Higher” is a minute long visual preview, directed by James Pereira, of what’s to come from the Boston artist. With crisp production from AyyDot equipped with a pristine Lana Del Ray sample, Replay leaves us wanting more, and I have a feeling there is a whole lot more to come. Continue Reading →
Stars are born in nebulae scattered throughout the universe. Everyday, all the time. Well hip hop has an earthly nebula known as Atlanta, and it is churning out stars faster than any other of its kind. Key! is one of those stars. You may be familiar with another track that he had a hand in, “Look at Wrist,” with Father and iLoveMakkonen. That track is about as addictive as they come. “Give Em Hell” is right up there in its ability to intoxicate any listener. Key! and, you guessed it, OG Maco released a joint EP that shares the same title with this new video. “U Guessed It” actually has a Key! verse on the EP, but the two are promoting themselves individually, at least in regards to their respective music videos. Give the EP, which you can stream here, a spin. Continue Reading →
