It’s rare to get new music from DomOfTheYear unless its a full length like his latest collection, Thrills. But that doesn’t apply this week. In celebration of his 23rd birthday, he liberates a new track, appropriately titled “23.” Fellow GOODKarma member James Rogers lays down an EDM influenced foundation for the Boston emcee’s rapid lyrics centered around trips to the West Coast and the almighty dollar.
Mr. Fritz Discusses XXL, New England Hip-Hop, Venues, The Glory & More
Mr. Fritzis featured in the second episode of I Love My Fiends‘ video interview series, The Drive. The rising Boston rapper rides shotgun around his hometown of Mattapan and discusses XXL‘s 15 Boston Rappers You Should Know list, the New England hip-hop scene, venues, the upcoming The Glory, and more. In addition, he previews two tracks off the anticipated project in the title track and “The City.”
It’s been over a week now and Oxymoron is currently sitting atop the music charts with the #1 spot. ScHoolboy Q‘s prophecy of breaking the bank has officially come to fruition and now he supplies us with a new visual, this time for the standout, 2 Chainz-assisted “What They Want.” Leading up to the album release, Q expressed a high level of excitement for this track in a number of interviews, which I immediately came to understand after giving Oxymoron its first listen. This video keeps up with the hype and is another heater from the Hoover Top Dawg. Continue Reading →
Calez Keeps It Positive in His Latest Set of Visuals
Hailing from Chicago, Calez has been gearing up for the release of his upcoming project, Ceito. Calez first caught my attention back in 2012 when he dropped his Kid With Raps mixtape. He’s come a long way since that tape and I am looking forward to hearing Ceito when it drops, which will hopefully arrive sooner rather than later.
Co-produced by Calez and R.A. Foster, “Positive Energy” packs some serious bounce and has a lot of life to it. In this video Calez takes us on a ride revealing a day in the life of the young artist accompanied by “friends, Harold’s chicken, and plenty of arm flexing.”
Be on the lookout for Ceito to drop sometime in the near future.
Rome Fortune and C4 Give Us Something Dope and Different with “Four Flats”
It’s not often that an artist will come along and will consistently deliver quality on all fronts. Although constantly delivering his best, Rome Fortune is never the type to give you something predictable and “Four Flats” is a fine example of that. Sonically, this is not your average hip hop track. C4 absolutely snapped on this beat and I’m not entirely sure how I ought to describe it–so I won’t. You will hear what I’m talking about. The same also applies to this visual from Goldrush and Glassface, who did not fail to raise the bar, packing loads of color and outside the box editing that match this track faultlessly.
Less than a month ago, Rome dropped his Beautiful Pimp II tape and, honestly, I listen to it just about once a day. It’s really that good. So do yourself a favor and download that.
