Buzzing Texas artist Trae Cane links with G.O.O.D Music’s latest signee, Valee.

traevaleeBubbling Texas artist Trae Cane returns to our pages with a bang. This time linking with Chicago’s own and new G.O.O.D music signee Valee for a vibe heavy record titled “Heard Of”. While in Chicago this summer shooting his “On My Own” video with Cole Bennett,Trae had his team reach out to Valee to see if they could make a play. A few hours after Valee’s show that night they linked at Classick Studios and got to work.

The Steelo Foreign produced record gets you hooked off the jump. The Texas producer has worked with plenty of big names and now adds Valee to the list as his production keeps getting better and more refined. The bass and 808’s bang, but the synth provides a nice laid back feel making this a perfect record for the whip (skrrt off).

Trae Cane sets the tone, both verses are nice and smooth and gets you hooked with lavish references and plenty of designer name drops as Valee comes in for the second verse and does his thing. Trae Cane announced today he is dropping his debut full length album Holograms on March 1st with some major features from Yung Bambi, Billyracxx, Baby Guwop, and more. Stay tuned for more, and make sure to listen below and let us know what you think. Follow Trae Cane on Spotify here.

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.

Skip the pie, Trae Cane and Mason Flynt bring the dessert with “Danksgiving”

The only way to get the body right after a Thanksgiving feast is a blunt or two, or three. I’m on my second, but I have a safe time betting that Mason Flynt and Trae Cane are well ahead. Today, Flynt released a banger from the vault titled “Danksgiving” full of straight bars from Trae Cane. The normal autotune heavy crooner, gives us some Screen Shot 2017-11-23 at 9.15.49 PMthrowback Trae with two punch-line filled verses calling out the weak swisher smokers and dudes who can’t hang. Mason provides an off kilter beat lead by keys and an eerie synth that allows Trae to do his thang.

If you’ve been to any hip-hop show in Austin you’ve probably seen Mason on stage DJing for some of the biggest names in the industry. the multi-talented producer has an album dropping soon that we’re very excited for. Trae Cane has had a hell of a 2017 and we eagerly await his video release for his banger “She Kno”. Stay tuned to Popped Cherry for more on the two Austin artists staying ahead of the pack. Until then, I’m gonna keep smoking until my feet touch the ceiling.

If you have seen any Cole Bennett video in the past, you’re guaranteed to be wow’d by the creativity, animation, and coloring and this visual is no exception. Shot in downtown Chicago with the help of an icy white Tesla X, “On My Own” comes to life. Check out the video below.

SWIDLIFE presents “Ascension” featuring TRAECANE, BILLYRACXX, XANSOLEAUX + more

Screen Shot 2017-08-25 at 9.25.31 PM

As if the music weekend couldn’t get any better, our homies over at SWIDLIFE dropped their 1st curated mixtape and it’s full of some of the best underground sounds in the game. SWIDLIFE is one of the best platforms shining light on some of the best, most slept on artists. The 8 track mixtape titled Ascension pegs some major Texas heat too. Here are the tracks that standout to me the most.

Billyracxx & OG Chess (prod. AGKeyz)

Houston links up for a track with no apparent name, but it doesn’t matter. Billyracxx’s energy is locked in and he delivers the perfect melody. With his recent single “Wonderland” and now this, I’m confident he is on the brink of blowing up. OG Chess offers a simple verse over the spacey AGKeyz production but it’s all he needs to do, Billyracxx kills this. It’s a perfect way to start off Ascension.

GuapOut – TRAE CANE (prod. Steelo Foreign)

One of the hottest artist/producer combos in Texas drops another heater with “GuapOut”. The SWIDLIFE exclusive is produced by the talented Steelo Foreign, and the beat continues the astral synth theme that is noticeable throughout the mixtape. “GuapOut” is Trae at his most braggadocios, and he doesn’t slow down. The motivational hustler music that has made TRAE CANE so popular should have everybody trying to bring the guap out.

The Colour Black – XansoleauX (prod. XansoleauX)

My favorite track on the tape comes from a San Antonio artist by the name of XansoleauX. Self produced, the beat is so intricate and haunting, at first I thought it was just an instrumental track. It sets the tone for the darkness of Xan’s verse when he comes in. Full of energy, I’m praying we get a creative visual for this one.  The producer can sing and rap, and we all know how successful that combination can be. I’m excited to hear more from XansoleauX.

**HONORABLE MENTION** Elixir – Anthony Rogers (prod. Mayeniac, Bricc Flair, and Sonorous) 

The last song of the mixtape goes out with a bang. “Elixir” is an autotune-laced record you could hear on a Future x The Weekend collaboration. Rogers makes it seem easy, even when switching up his flow mid verse he stays on point. I don’t know much about Anthony Rodgers quite yet, but if Elixir is a promise for what’s to come I expect huge things from the Pennsylvania rapper/producer.

Listen to the whole tape below.

Trae Cane & Steelo Foreign create a wavy vibe “She Kno”

Austin artist Trae Cane links up with Steelo Foreign for a jazzy track. The song is sampled from Mac Demarco’s Shigeo Sekito – “the word II”. Steelo Foreign has his own twist to the instrumentals making it mesh with Trae Cane’s sound flawlessly. Trae Cane takes things to another level by laying down some a catchy hook and wavy verse. Be on the look out for a new project from Trae Cane coming possibly this fall, till then take a listen to his newest single below.
