Anybody who’s seen AJ Bray knows. He’s full of life whenever he performs, commanding the audience and coming with an energy and presence that rivals that of some of the biggest artists. He separates himself, not defined by his hometown or his influences, but by his music alone. His latest project, aptly named Enigma, encompasses all of that energy to produce his most clear cut and impactful project yet.
Start to finish AJ Bray comes at you with a whole new clarity, and has set himself up to reach a new level. The opener The ReUp really sets the tone for what you’re gonna experience on the rest of the project, from a better mix, harder beats, and endless flows. Each track to track transition is smooth, with every song fitting together but standing on its own to be an interesting listen.
Song quality and structure are good, poignant and super catchy. AJs calling card is his quirky and effective lyrics, flexed in a way that really makes them stick with you. She Hates My Hoes should be all over nightclubs(wassup Club Rio), FrFr tells these boys the needa stop cappin out here, and Play Around is probably a personal for me on the project. As he continues through his career, AJ has yet to disappoint. We’re watching first hand someone who’s dedicated to his shit and refuses to ease up. True to his projects name, AJ Bray is a real life enigma.
Making his first appearance on our Popped Cherry pages but certainly not his last Boofman got us hip to his most recent project “Boofman 2” which features 11 tracks of nothing but slappers. He literally created a function worthy project. Go ahead and get yourself familiar with Maryland artist Boofman, because this won’t be the last time you see him on our page. I’m anxious to see what he has up his sleeve.
Want something to vibe to for the weekend? Jidé will provide that for you. His 6 track EP “Now Or Never” is filled with gems that are highly slept on.

Although we are a little late, we want you guys to get familiar with Jidé because he’s really delivering slappers. Go ahead and get hip and press down below. Don’t sleep!

30Rock is a rapper from Memphis who I consider probably one of the hottest underground rappers coming out of Memphis right now not to mention he delivers music and visuals nonstop so you can’t say he’s not out here putting in work. Following right behind his 2017 mixtape “Rocky” just recently 30Rock came back again with the sequel “Rocky II“. The 8 track project delivers production from producers like MILLIONAIR, Harold Harper, Dirty Sosa, plus many other dope producers who have made this project worth the listen. Make sure to press play down below and don’t sleep on this 8 track project Popped Cherry would never let you down.

Just last night Kidd blessed the streets with an icy new visual titled “E Up” as he continues to consistently drop banger after banger I’m ready for some more. Go ahead and stream his new visual up above and make sure you catch his performance at the Gunna concert in San Antonio June 6th.
Just recently I was introduced to a talented artist from Athens, Greece by the name of Complex Shadow. It honestly only took 1 song for me to become an instant fan. The song that lured me in was “So Cold” Complex delivered gritty ass bars over a hard ass beat. Wanna get away from the mumble rap for a little while? just jam his album “Complexity” because while he delivers bars the beats are what turn up the whole vibe. Go ahead and check out his album down below because it definitely needs mores ears.

The 3 track EP is one that you wish had more, this is like the appetizer to what Lone London has to offer. Go ahead and press play down below and tell us what you think.
