Marc Goone is an anomaly. To say his Twitter presence is strange would be an understatement. To say his music is packed with surprises simply wouldn’t do it justice.
On his newest album The Scrumple King Goone mixed the perfect amount of unabashed humor, with a level of self-awareness that is rare in any artist. His writing is stunning with deeply-rooted metaphors and rhyme-schemes that a normal rapper would be scared to even attempt.
With his brand down-pat and now clearly the music just as stunning, 2015 should be a big year for the St. Louis native.

Chris Smith Jr. has returned to warm up this cold winter with the Monte Booker produced record “Griffey”. Smith displays a continued knack for poppy and catchy tunes while hinting at some of the hardship he faced while growing up in Ferguson, Missouri.
With the stream of music that Smith Jr. has put out as of late, don’t be surprised if you start seeing his name pop up more.

Really happy to be posting this one. Larry June, a dude who’s been making moves with 808Mafia and making a name for himself joins forces with IAMSU! to drop this trap banger. Produced by newcomer KiNG KiLO, its a hard Chicago drill sounding beat that works really well with the two flows. Good rhymes and a lot of bass, what more do you need? Enjoy.

EaSWay, the young talent out of LA, continues to drop more good vibes– a similar vibe to Skizzy Mars. The trance like production on this track makes it slow and vibey, a great slow jam with a purple feel, a la A$AP Rocky. Not to mention the dope artwork that comes with every one of his singles. Anyways, EaSWay’s flow throughout the verses continues to impress us all. Give this track a listen, throw it on your playlist, and light one up to this. Enjoy.

Tis the season for Timeflies to once again throw on those ugly sweaters and rock out to a less than expected viral jam. Unlike years in the past, Timeflies turn up to the trap-rap hit of the fall, “CoCo”. In typical Tuesday fashion, Cal and Rez spin O.T. Genasis’ street anthem into a family friendly Christmas jam. Wait, what? Essentially, if you were to replace every drug reference with a sweet, edible equivalent, you’d get the same result. “BAKIN’ COOKIES, WE BE BAKIN’ COOKIES!” Even the street slugs are going to be boppin’ to this one.
Merry Christmas, everyone!
P.S. Rez – that hat, though. >>>

I sometimes have this feeling where I kinda know that something is about to be massive, and I am having that feeling about Sondrio from Australia. I don’t know much about the rising star, but I know he is putting out smashes. It sounds like he took the Kanye West production and added another layer of Kanye to it. King Push probably didn’t ask for a dance record, but Sondrio brought the fire flames!

For the amount of SoundCloud love that Chris Smith Jr. receives, it is almost alarming that he has not yet cracked the blog world. Today, that changes. His newest song “Don’t You Get Tired” is a hustlers anthem, packed with vibrant story telling and the infectious melodies that the St. Louis rapper consistently brings to the table.
Following up the release of his soft-spoken “Smellin’ Like A Re-Up“, Chris feeds fans addictions with a different side of his music, showing he is equal parts rapper and singer. “Don’t You Get Tired” is a single off of Smith Jr.’s upcoming project aptly titled Zero Fatigue. With Kendrick Lamar’s “i” still fresh in our minds, it’s great to see other artists returning to the feel-good, motivational place that music –hip-hop specifically– was one known for.
Production credits go to the righthand man, Montee Booker. Be on lookout for plenty more collaborations from the two in the near future!
