Admittedly, I slept on this. “Bounce Back” was sent to me a few weeks ago, and although I played it through quite a few times, I never managed to toss it up here for the masses. My snooze has come to an end, and I am excited to see how people respond to the stylings of Kyle, Keem, and Mr. Fantastic.
The song is production-heavy and features an instrumental backdrop that could easily be heard in a club or at a party. The difference is that Kyle and Keem both manage to come correct with some serious bars. Justin Clough did his thing per usual on the visuals, so be sure to give it a look and listen!

Man I love it when tracks are sent my way that figuratively blow me away, and “Sunshine” by New Jersey artist Marcus Ariah and produced by PCP does just that! Reminiscent of that smooth New York flow comparable to a young Lloyd Banks, I’ve had this track on repeat all day, and I can’t wait to cruise to this with the windows down, seat rolled back, and my shorty by my side. All that’s missing on this record is a Styles P featuring, but we can save that for the remix. If you hear this on the radio any time soon, make sure you saw it first here, real talk. This is a must listen and a must download.

The kid G4shi hits us with another banger “Don’t Forget Me” produced by his go-to producer Smokie Morrison, who you might also remember as the producer on “Who Made Me.” The best way I can describe G4shi’s records and his music is that they are reflective of his life and how he’s feeling at that time, documenting his every move and sharing it with his fans. I dig it. This is a must listen and a must download!

I’ve got this sort of, hip-hop-fairy-godfather type of best friend that drops in every now and then to enlighten me with only the best underground hip hop on the rise. For the past few years, he’s been the one to introduce me to everyone from Afu-Ra to G-Eazy, Blue Scholars to Logic, Black Element to even Aloe Blacc. Need I continue? So recently when he told me one of his own cousin’s picked up producing, I knew it had to be good. Everyone, meet Milwaukee’s own, Spencer Joles. “Long Nights” is a v trill track to get lost in, with mellow vibes and steady rhymes throughout. I’ve also included his newest release, “Cosmic Dialect,” which demonstrates this guy’s commitment to steady releases as well as testing out all different production styles. This young rapper already has a pretty stacked selection of * free * original work and covers on his Soundcloud so take a minute to dive in and check it out.

Damn. This video is truly something different and is just as much fun to watch as it is to listen to. Chicago MC ShowYouSuck has been around the Chicago scene for a minute but I think with a video like this it, and he, can go viral. The beat was produced by Peter Cottontale and Mike Jaxx and the video was directed by Aaron Perkins Jr. With a fantastic flow from ShowYouSuck, this whole piece is way too on point. Definitely make sure to give this a watch, I’m sure it shouldn’t disappoint.
