The (W)rap Up Vol. 3
Posted by TwirlyHatMatt on April 9, 2015
Masego – Girls That Dance
Does this count as rap? Perhaps. Perhaps not. Am I going to post it anyway? Yes.
Masego hails from Virginia and adds another name to the extensive list of talent in the region. His newest single is a reggae, soulful, futuristic ballad to all of the lovely girls in this world who dance. With the production assist from Medasin, and live saxophone from himself, Masego flaunts a sound unknown to many that could easily catch on.
Job Jetson – Shameless
Job Jetson hails from Milwaukee and continues with his streak of smooth, melodic rap that sounds perfectly suited for late night in a club. With only four songs on his SoundCloud to date, it will be interesting to see what Jetson has in store for us next.
Flash Giordani – Xaniel Webster (Video)
I posted Flash Giordani’s song “Xaniel Webster” a few weeks back and now the self-proclaimed Asian Savior has returned with an equally trippy and intoxicating video to accompany it. Flash is the perfect balance of talented rapper-meets-artist who doesn’t take themselves too seriously. It’s a deadly combination.
Jay IDK – The Plug
Jay IDK has been sending me his music for a while now, and although I thought he was a talented rapper, I told him that it just wasn’t all the way there yet. With his newest release “The Plug” and the unveiling of his alter-ego, King Trappy III, I was thoroughly impressed. I saw his music breaking out of the shell it was previously in and really hitting a sound that I saw as much more exciting and accessible in the current music soundscape.
Ciscero – Who I Am (ft. King Rosé)
Ciscero and King Rosé premiered their song “Who I Am” via DJ Booth the other day and showcased a real talent to be watched. The energy and near-anger showcased in the chorus is reason enough to take a listen to this song, but if you need more convincing Ciscero and Rosé both deliver equally lyrical verses.
