MHCSB links with Wane for an exclusive interview and drop off a new visual for “Top Shelf”

Hailing from Long Island, NY and New Jersey, MHCSB is a blend of several different styles. These guys always bring a high amount of energy, great production, and bridge the gap between hyphy rap and actually spitting bars. From the self proclaimed Suburban Superstar Ab Flexinn (Long Island, NY) to the talented producer/rapper Spaceman Labonte (NJ), Money Micc (Long Island, NY), Brown Boi Pachino (NJ), and others, MHCSB has all the tools necessary to level up.

We had an opportunity to link with them during SXSW 2018, as the group made their first trip to Texas and attended the annual week long festival showcasing some of the best up and coming acts from around the country. MHCSB certainly stayed busy that week, hopping on Wane’s World SXSW and opening up for G.O.O.D Music’s Valee, as well as 3 other shows. For new artists SXSW can be intimidating. Streets full of dirty mixtapes stepped on by thousands, the smell of old beer and the previous nights escapades lingering in the air. MHCSB did it right, hitting numerous stages with the heavy energy that is lacking by most new acts. You can hear more about their Texas experience, 4 Loko diet, and what inspires their work below.

Building off the success of their 2017 single “Blue” the group drops off a new @NimbusNine directed visual for their new single “Top Shelf”. The Pvt Joker and Manzo produced beat offers the perfect assist for MHCSB to float on. With the groups ability to blend styles while keeping their verses original, pairing it with tripped out visual creates an enjoyable experience for listeners.

With production placements, solo projects, and more group projects, MHCSB is one of those names to keep an eye on. We’ll keep watching over here at Popped Cherry and keeping you updated on the latest releases. Let us know what you think!

Montreal’s NEKO is still making hits, the latest is “Stains” prod. by shyguy

Screen Shot 2017-12-06 at 12.56.36 PMA few months ago we wrote about Montreal’s buzzing underground scene. One of those artists was up and coming rapper Neko. He’s back with a new project, this time with two songs for a compilation project from Club Nuage, a soundwave collective from Quebec.

My favorite of the two tracks is “Stains” produced by shyguy. The beat is wavy and melodic and Neko shows a new style I haven’t heard before. Some introspective lyrics, melodic bars, but still the grittiness I love from Neko. Check it out below, rumor is he’ll be making an appearance at SXSW this year. I hope that’s true.
