Since their arrival on late 2013, Academy has absolutely amazed with each single, but the one thing never received regularly were visuals. In January the duo unleashed their first set of visuals for their single We Ain’t Never and today the duo teamed up with director Kris Roller to drop one of the more creative music videos we have seen in quite some time for their single Hold Me Down.

Newcentz’ fight with adversity has molded his heart into a chilling organ. Growing up in West Baltimore, life has not been the easiest for this budding artist. It all started with Newcentz being incarcerated at 16 years old, serving a three and a half year sentence. And then recently the 23 year old artist just lost his friend to a senseless murder at a Baltimore lounge. Putting all of this pain into his music is what will push his progression. The end goal with a career in music is for his three daughters, so that they don’t have to live with the battles that he has faced.

After a few solid releases TJ is back with his best work yet to date, a new club anthem enlisted ‘Make Me Work For It‘. With production sounding like it came straight from DJ Mustard himself, Teddy Roxpin clearly hit the mark on the boards on this one. Following suit with his most recent single posted on FNT, ‘Treadmill’ featuring Alex Jordahl, TJ recruited Connecticut native Jitta On The Track for a classic verse to close out the track. Be sure to check TJ out on Facebook and Twitter.

Alternative, Indie, RnB | LAUV – The Other

‘You have the voice of an angel’ is what I said when I first heard LAUV; No, I am not John C. Reilly and I am not talking about Will Ferrell in Step Brothers. Ok, thats not even what I said, but, ‘Holy shit, I didn’t know you could sing!’ was what I said when LAUV gave me a sneak peak of his debut single a few days prior to its release. Formally known to those in the industry for his EDM producing skills  under a different stage name, LAUV is coming out of the gates swinging with his debut single ‘The Other‘.

With a voice you’d expect to be in the next big boy band, ‘The Other‘ consumes you from the first few notes all the way through to the last. There was no doubts about his production skills but he has absolutely outdone himself putting his writing skills on display. LAUV is going to be huge, very huge.

I’m an asshole, I’ve known about these guys for the past 2 years, and genuinely enjoying their unique sound, and I never took the time to introduce them to the FNT audience, and it seems they’ve even taken down the EP they were working on at the time, but all that doesn’t matter anymore, cause these guys connected, and connected heavy on Spotify, hitting the top 50 worldwide viral chart with their debut release “Touch” gathering 150,000+ in just 2 days. On that weirdo vibe, these dudes are onto something, peep the video, and discover “High Rule,” this is a must listen!

Hip-Hop, Rap | Aziz – Snakes On A Plane

Never before in the history of mankind have the words hip hop, single, fire, Nas, New Hampshire and Samuel L. Jackson been used in the same sentence; until now. New Hampshire hip hop MC/Producer Aziz unleashed a new single with some production you’d figure Nas would have hopped on back in the early 2000’s; oh, it’s straight fire and how am I going to neglect mentioning Samuel L. Jackson with a name like ‘Snakes On A Plane’? Aziz first came on my radar way back in 2010 when he and a couple of his college buddies dropped a track called ‘Tic Tac Toe‘. The song was crazy catchy and the music video was shot next to my house at the University of New Hampshire. I have been keeping tabs ever since and while Aziz may not be ‘popping’ quite like others that have been at it for that long but his content is always quality and on point.
