A few weeks ago we covered a single called “The Business” that featured Bay Area legends Keak Da Sneak and Roach Gigz. The song’s creator, Kai Straw, pushed it as one of the lead singles off his Toothpick album that was due out through his own label, Tenth Gate Records. Now, Toothpick is here, packed with ten singles that are all incredible. From beginning to end Kai manages to do more than just hold your attention. He keeps your emotions running high in various ways, depicting stories and painting vivid pictures with his potent words. He’s a prolific songwriter, and together with the producer of the album, James The Bear, Toothpick’s content is both dynamic and extraordinary. Check out the full album, and make sure to prepare yourself for a music video, as Kai has announced that he will be creating one; however, he’s currently getting fans opinions on which they would like to see.

Abstract Hip-Hop, Hip-Hop, Mixtapes | Don’t Sleep On McKinley Dixon’s Who Taught You To Hate Yourself? Mixtape

Posted by on April 14, 2016

Annapolis, Maryland (or MD in general) isn’t too well known for it’s hip-hop scene or even music scene in general to be honest with you, but the other day I was put onto McKinley Dixon an upcoming rapper and musician who is slowly but surely making some waves. His most recent project was called Who Taught You To Hate Yourself and it’s clearly heavily influenced by the 90’s scene of hip-hop. Spiritual, lyrical, deep content that goes above and beyond most mainstream rap that is currently playing on the radio. I’m rooting for the underground and for McKinley Dixon to continue to make dope shit. Listen to his tape above and keep him on your map.

You may or may not have already heard of this guy, he has already had features with big name producers Griz, Gramatik, & Paper Diamond just to name a few. Jay Fresh is back at it again to debut his second solo project with all original production from the Ep’s executive producer Nine Duece out of Long Beach California. Style and grace can only describe the Ep’s sound with true lyricism and a 90’s hip-hop approach to the production.The project also has Features from a Dallas based singer Jay Sabin, and has feature production from Jus Stone along with TDE’s Blue The Misfit. This project is definitely a heater all the way through watch out for Jay Fresh and more upcoming releases to follow.

If you don’t know who Mayzin is, you need to get educated real quick. He is easily one of my favorite MC’s out there now, a full stack artist, producing, writing, and making smashes. This is definitely an artist to watch out for and is part of the next generation. This is one of my favorite releases so far, Up All Night is a classic; 2016, watch out!
