Philadelphia’s Ground Up are not new to hip hop by any means. “Daps” is still one of my favorite joints to date and I don’t see that changing any time soon. In the first verse of “Wrath of God,” Malakai shares a story that is all too common for artists trying to express themselves on an industry level nowadays, “Everybody can tell you how to do it, they never done it. Everybody can tell you how to sing it, they never sung it.” This theme lingers throughout the track in a rather calm fashion that exhibits the duo’s (well, trio with Bij Lincs handling the production side of things) laid-back, but still confident, bravado, which is about as cool as the Dos Equis Man casually chatting it up with a couple of monks. “Wrath of God” will be found on Ground Up’s forthcoming project, Mega.

Rome Fortune Revisits Drives, Thighs & Lies in His Latest Visual
Rome Fortune has no chill. Consistently releasing quality content, his newest video does not fall short of the mark. “Payin for It,” which features both JunglePussy and Relly Jade, holds a spot on Rome and DunDeal‘s collaborative Drives, Thighs, & Lies project that we received before the summer. Directed by and costarring Goodwin, with some cameos from Cousin Stizz and friends, this video culminates with a cool and collected Rome Fortune coming to the rescue of four damsels in distress (of lames). A bottle of Avión may win you some favor, but once you serve up an entrée composed mainly of Spam, well, good luck to you. Continue Reading →
Yung Envy, a 20 year old from Little Rock, slides through with a new set of visuals in the form of “Stay Away.” This is a magnetically alluring track. It is a short one, but sweet nonetheless. Regardless of the track’s title, I have no desire to stop listening to this whatsoever. Comprised mostly of a rap delivery, Yung Envy switches it up by singing on the hook, which has been stuck in my head for a couple days now, and I’m not mad about it to be quite honest. Enjoy.
