Abstract Hip-Hop, Chill, Hip-Hop | Drex Carter and Kkami Connect on THAW

Posted by on November 15, 2019

With stellar beats from Kkami and dope flows from Drex Carter, THAW is well worth listening to. The EP is a great introduction to both artists if you are unfamiliar with their prior music, while also showing a different side of each artist’s normal style. Drex’ approach is more laid back and less lyrical than his older music and Kkami’s hybrid instrumentals on this one lean a bit more in the indie scene compared to his older drops. Tune in above now. Also, be sure to check out a new video off the EP by clicking here.

Abstract Hip-Hop, Hip-Hop, Rap | Abhi The Nomad Brings the Slaps On ‘LOCK’

Posted by on November 2, 2018

Austin based artist Abhi The Nomad has had one hell of a year.  From releasing his debut album, “Marbled“, in February, to being granted his visa to stay in the US as a working musician, to taking off on his first headlining North American – American Alien Tour, to most recently releasing a string of stand out singles, Abhi The Nomad seems to really just be getting started.

While, “Marbled“, has already become an instant classic, racking up millions of plays and finding support from top tier tastemakers, Abhi The Nomad seems to have switched gears as of late – bringing things back to basics and releasing straight up bangers as the year winds down.  Today, he has just released his latest single, “LOCK“, featuring Foster Cazz & Schama Noel and it is a head knocking, gritty bomb.

Over a self-produced, grungy, electric guitar laden beat, Abhi and friends go in, spitting vicious bars and letting everyone know that there is no stopping them.  Always known to do things to the beat of his own drum, Abhi The Nomad crafts a hard-hitting slapper that brings an undeniable energy and braggadocios vibe, putting critics in their place once and for all.  With a promise of more singles on the horizon and a growing, rabid fanbase at his heels, I have no doubt that 2019 is going to be a huge year for the nomadic one.  Keep it LOCKed.

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.
