Recently the internet put in front of me an artist that I wish I had known earlier. Kai Straw of San Francisco is the man I am referring to. This dude is coming out with a new album entitled Toothpick on April 12th, but he’s providing singles a bit early to tide fans over. The second single off of the album is “The Business,” which features Bay Area collaborators Keak Da Sneak and Roach Gigz. The record is a fresh breath of air in the hip-hop world, that is largely being ran by the R&B meets trap style. Here, we get a classic rap creation that brings solid verses to the table with a unique beat produced by James The Bear. Expect another couple singles before the album drops, as they are sure to be some top quality tunes.

Jon Waltz is no stranger to us here, and he is easily one of the best artists to rise through the ranks over the past year. He is on a roll, making some of the best music possible on the independent circuit, I don’t think it will be too long before we start to see him in a city near you. I listened to Justified a couple of times, and it only gets better the more you listen to it! Hit the Free Download here: Free Download – Jon Waltz

The duo Timeflies recently released their first single since putting out their album Just For Fun last year. The song, “Once In A While”, is a contemporary pop song that features production by Rez and rapping/singing from counterpart, Cal. The song is tropical and fun, perhaps inspired by a recent move to Los Angeles.
Watch the lyric video above, or stream the song below.
Electro-House, Hip-Hop, House, Rap | Haezer Delivers Underground Crossover Anthem With “You Feel Me”
Posted by VMan on January 20, 2016
South Africa has some great artists coming out of its cities, but Haezer is someone who is really holding it down in the electronic scene. His techno/electro crossovers are some of the most solid underground club tracks that dance music has seen in a while. His newest fits more the electro style, but he enlists emcee Born I to turn things up with a hot verse that adds a whole other dimension to the track. For all the industry people who wear “all black everything” this song is made for you. Rap and dance music have been steadily put together more and more over the past year, but Haezer and Born I have just set a high bar for anything coming out in the future. Because of its unique and surprisingly catchy sound, this one is well worth its purchase price.

Boston producer and emcee Darcy dropped us the third track in as many weeks with ‘Just Another‘. Fresh off a recent performance with Witt Lowry, the latest offering is exactly what we have come to expect from Darcy as the self produced track is a solid listen that tells another piece of his story.

I just got this tune sent my way, and this is straight bangin’! It has a top down, lets hang out, old school feel as NY native and Ethiopian American spits fire over the jazzy production and hip hop drums. I have seen Siimba on a few dance tracks before, and this seems like his debut single. I’d be on the lookout for more from this newcomer! Make sure you snag the free download here: FREE Download!

While not many prominent rappers from Boston can be listed off the top of ones head, there is a new wave of talent rising up from the streets of Beantown. Cousin Stizz, Michael Christmas and now Bia come to mind when surveying the current scene.
Bia is a new signee of Pharrell’s i am Other label and her single “Bobby Brown” is an evident statement why. Hostile, exciting and charismatic, it’s no wonder Bia is causing heads to turn.
