With a tone set for subliminal sadness, LeeLee Haxi goes against the grain with her new trap tinged R&B hip-hop enthused project Until Then. With a unique style, LeeLee creates a sound perfect for kicking back and getting lost in some therapeutic thought. It’s clear she has been keeping an ear to the streets as she has been crafting her sound. Be sure to keep your eyes and ears on her.
LeeLee is not new to Fresh New Tracks, but this is the premiere of the first full mixtape project from the NYC singer/songwriter, featuring a song produced by non other than Monsta Beatz Music. Check out her latest single Pull Up which released this past Thanksgiving on iHipHop’s A3C Vol. 6 Mixtape. She has some more heat dropping soon and is heavily featured on Young Roddy and Trademark da Skydiver’s album, Family Business dropping this friday, and also featured on veteran producers Shelco Garcia and Teenwolf’s upcoming record Sky High on Mixmash Records coming December 12th.

Take the alternative, chiller sound of Brooklyn-based Pool Cosby and combine it with a legend of freestyle rap, the one and only Raekwon of Wu-Tag Clan, to creative a powerful single. Raekwon’s lyrical style meshes well with the chiller, hip-hop influenced beats. The track beautifully flows into a soothing jazzy melody with flute and vocals from Elena Pinderhughes and keys by sibling Samora Pinderhughes.
The release comes ahead of several scheduled performances going into the new year and Pool Cosby’s forthcoming album ‘Blind Gold’ due out in 2017.

Boston newcomer Jackie Jones stops by for his FNT debut with a strong single ‘Limousines’ accompanied by some simple, but fun visuals. With simple, yet catchy rhythmic production to set the table Jones lays some smooth bars down that provides those windows down summer vibes. Jones brings the record home with a fun hook that reminds you of a time when things were much simpler, and all you had to worry about was trying to find a way to ride in limousines, and drinking champagne with some friends.

Covers/remixes are hit or miss for me, especially when it’s of the biggest record in the country. But this chilled out rendition of Rae Sremmurd “Black Beatles” by TEL, MadeBySwavy and valleyz is just the mellow edit you’ll need this Thursday after that Thanksgiving itis kicks in. Only thing I would have enjoyed hearing on this version is the background version you hear on the original included, but beggars can’t be choosers and this is tight.

This record is “For anybody who is trying to make it,” says the 24-year-old West Baltimore native Young Jade. “Working” is his latest debut generating steam in the DMV region. On the song, you’ll find a sprinkling of Auto-Tune & crooning which is what ultimately makes the song unique. Dealing with life, Young Jade talks about the grind you put in to take care of your family. He wants to bring a different positivity coming from the streets of Baltimore and loyalty is extremely important to him. His musical inspirations are quite versatile as he goes from DMX, Busta Rhymes, Berry Gordy, Jadakiss, Prince, Rakim to name a few. Having a family, producing and writing his own music now, he admits he takes life more seriously and wants to bring back the real meaning to hustling.
