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.

Those who have been following Logic from the start know him, his outlook on music, and his demeanor. Confidence > Cockiness. A few noteworthy lines from previous songs…
“Never cocky I’m just confident the flow is prominent” – via “Ask ‘Em”
“You gotta realize, a lot of the time when I talk
And I’m talking extremely cocky, I’m not talking
About myself, I’m talking about the work.” – via “Numbers”
Since his last mixtape, Welcome to Forever, Young Sinatra has further developed his voice into a powerful, charismatic sound. With this, some fans may argue his music has changed. Changed? No. Developed? Yes. His versatility continues to improve and his fan base continues to grow. With that comes clingers (#RAPGAMEBARNACLES). Everyone and their mother wants a piece of the pie. Once-haters are suddenly starving for a taste. Logic’s newest release, “Now” addresses those naysayers and urchins with heavy production and a balance of swift and machine gun raps. This marks the first single off his newly announced Free EP, While You Wait, which will serve as an appetizer to his full length Def Jam debut.
Gotta give it to 6ix, Arthur McArthur, & Swiff D on this one. This production KICKS.
One more thing – Logic will be touring with Krewella & Radical Something in part of the Verge Campus tour starting this week AND he will also be crossing the country with labelmate QuESt and ©. Castro this summer.

This is precisely why us East-coasters love Viceroy. While you spoiled Californian’s, Texan’s, Floridians, and any other Southern-ians have warm weather all year round, us New Englander’s are hitting the beach the minute it hits 60 degrees in April. The king of “Summertime All The Time” hits us with a filthy remix of vintage Nelly – Ride Wit Me. If you’re looking for windows down music, regardless of the temperature outside, look no further.
