One of our favorite Atlanta DJs Zach Skywalker stays providing us with audio dope, always offering some new refreshing shit. Just the other day he blessed the streets with a new track from Lil Vyl featuring CKent and it’s too fire not to share. The track is titled “Top Tier” and was produced by Joe McLaren. Go ahead and press play down below and tell us what you think.
Decaturs very own FYB Tevin recently blessed the streets with his project “Sum 2 Prove” that’s highly slept on.

There’s a lot of young talent these days, just recently 15 year old rapper from Los Angeles recently submitted to us and I was impressed with what I hearing so I just had to spread the word and put y’all on too.

Nobody in Texas has had better visuals the last few months than Austin’s Trae Cane. Video’s with Cole Bennett, Chino Chase, and something dropping soon with Steven Jets, Trae has been on fire. On Thanksgiving, Trae and Mason Flynt blessed us with some heat from the vault titled “Danksgiving”. Now, Trae teams up with underground platform TRILLPHONK to release the visual. Old or not, it’s still fire. Check it out below.
JahleelFaReaL returns to our pages with a slick new video for “No Feel”. The Texas artist has seen some serious growth over the last few months from doing packed shows in Austin to dropping steady content. Jahleel takes control of all aspects on “No Feel”, completely self-producing the record, directing and editing the video. It’s this self taught talent that intrigues me about Jahleel’s records, as his story grows with each release. Check out the video below.

From underground popularity becoming mainstream success, million dollar label deals, and a few brutal assault accusations, everyone in rap had their eyes on Broward County this year. The hype rarely disappointed, and the drama rarely subsided. Among the many bright spots was the continued ascent of Anonymuz, a hard-spitting underground MC from South Florida.
Since the attention grabbing project Vice City late last year, Anonymuz has built his buzzing fan base to over 55k Youtube subscribers, 19k followers on Soundcloud, and over 50k Spotify listeners a month. Unapologetic, gracious, and a genius at the internet machine has turned his fanbase into a cult-like status spamming his mentions with support in droves. Helped by his popularity in the online gaming community, Anonymuz is able to have an impact at festivals like E3 as well as the music crazy SXSW where he headlined multiple showcases last year.
This week, Anonymuz took another huge step along his journey with the release of a new single/video titled “Motorola” produced by frequent contributor downtime and directed by Adam Gharib and SYGMOD. “Motorola” is Anonymuz at his best; rapid fire bars, a catchy hook, and a high level of bravado makes for a great record. For such a chill person, he comes to life behind a mic and you get the sense he’s waiting for the world to wake up and realize what he’s got.
The video is excellent, SYGMOD and Adam use a dimly lit parking garage and some grainy effects to really bring out not only the anonymity he’s known for, but the character he is. From color, to quick camera work hitting as hard as the beat, I was entertained throughout. It was Anonymuz’s first music video since “Vice City” a year ago, so the growth and direction is definitely apparent. SYGMOD and Adam really brought this newly evolved character to life. Check it out below.
With his recently released project Urameshi, and the success of Vice City’s single “Cowboy Bebop” anime has had an influence in building Anonymuz’s catalog. While anime has been a popular theme in rap music in the last year, usually it’s from rappers biting the aethsetic that the Japanese cartoons offer. “I love anime… but I think the way people put it in music is kinda strange you know what I’m saying?” mentions Anonymuz when I asked it’s importance. Unlike most rappers who simply mention it in their music, Anon uses anime as more of a soundtrack. “When I name a song after an anime or game, it’s more so when I hear the song it reminds me of the vibe I get when I watch that anime or play that game it’s more like a soundtrack or theme to the shit.”
Intrigued by the connection, I was curious what influence the characters have on him. Anon responded with, “I learned a lot about myself from my last album where I embodied someone who was morally grey and I learned that I walk that same line…”. As Anonymuz continues to learn about himself, we continue to learn about him, and it seems like every release gives his growing fan base something stronger to grasp on to. He’s prime for a giant 2018, led by new management and new direction. We can’t wait to see where it goes! Check out the rest of his catalog below.
CT based rapper Lonny X has recently blessed the streets with a brand new track titled “Believe It” and it’s refreshing to the game it doesn’t sound like everything that’s out right now. The Lazy Boy Records signee is making sure you’re not snoozing with this track, your a fool if you don’t add it to your rotation. Go ahead and press play down below and tell us what you think.
So I really can’t stop listening to this song by Pierre titled “Smokin Gas” featuring Thyknowo. The song and the production itself is just too catchy and it’s too fire for people to be sleeping on it. Go ahead and press play down below and get familiar with Pierre I’m pretty sure he’s got some more fire coming our way.
