Upcoming Dallas, Texas rapper Tay Money has finally released her highly anticipated and first ever visual “Lewis & Clark” shot by @DanceDaily and it’s definitely worth watching. Making her debut to the rap game Tay Money has a hit on her hands because it’s so catchy.

CHXPO does a little something different for his latest visual of “Sonic” providing us with clips from Sonic, Looney Toons, Popeye, Hey Arnold, and others creating a different vibe and it’s pretty dope because the clips he chose for the visual correlates with his lyrics.

Little Rock native, Los Angeles transplant, Solo Jaxon delivers a high energy visual to match his latest Idle Kid-produced release ‘I’m Not Okay’. Set in Hollywood, the Maniac By Design directed film takes you on a day-in-the-life tour. It’s no walk in the park but that’s what makes it so enticing to listen to and watch.
Idle Kid’s notorious dark-sounding production is multilayered in booming drums and an infectious synth melody that loops throughout the second half of the song. Idle Kid and Solo are very close friends, and that cohesiveness shows on record. Solo’s favorite artist of all time is Kendrick Lamar, so you can imagine he isn’t one for lackadaisical bars. The first line of the song is “They say the first step is admitting you have a problem right?”. ‘I’m Not Okay’ shows he’s open and honest about the trials and tribulations that got him to where he is. Being influential in rap (and life) is admitting your struggles, and allowing other human beings to watch you succeed, improve, and change.
Little Rock has one of the most slept on scenes in the country, and the fact that most of the major players have taken their talents to Los Angeles shows how serious they are about taking it to the national level. Keep your eyes wide, and your ears open.

Austin’s rising hitmaker D. Brooks has built up a lot of buzz in 2017 off of only 5 songs. He continues the single streak with the tredyboi1hunna produced “On Me”, mixed and mastered by Triga at MIDAS studios in Austin. The rapper/producer pair has turned into quite the combo lately, racking up plays with heavily produced beats and catchy hooks. Their last track, “Gnarly ft. Goon Des Garcons*”, has racked up over 8k listens in 3 weeks.
They certainly got something that works, this song is no different. “On Me” is Brooks at his most boastful, claiming the girls, the drugs, the lean is all on him. A catchy hook is his forte, and he delivers again. Expect more from the burgeoning duo, as it’s reported tredyboi1hunna will show up all over Brooks’ debut mixtape coming this fall. Can’t wait to hear it, Brooks is definitely coming into his own.
