J. Young & Giovanni - KILL IT
You know he finna KILL IT; he just had to get it outta his system. Who is he? He's J. Young, coming straight outta Columbus, Ohio, and hooking everyone in his path with his partner in crime, Giovanni.
J. Young and Giovanni frictionlessly slide into their agile verses on KILL IT passing the shine to one another without any hindrances; there isn't any competition when they're both the illest. You can't skim this.
It's one thing when the beat exudes creative insanity. Still, it's something else when two lyricists come together and simply KILL IT, catapulting the track to another level of appreciation with their mic magic. There's nothing left out in this mix; we've got welcomed vulgarity, super sharp cadence, and flow that's heavy and unheard of... it's prehistoric, like a t-rex.
"Gio had sent his verse over, and as soon as I heard it, I was inspired to write.
It didn't take longer than 20 minutes to get it done, and the rest is history." - J. Young.
KILL IT represents what we like to call the complete package. The beat overflows with audible steeze, giving off classic Hip-Hop vibes that remind one of the glorious eras of Missy Elliot and Timbaland amongst many others; their influence to this day is unmatched. That baseline is then elevated with J. Young and Giovanni's lyrical throw-down. They keep it light with their content, tight with their delivery, and right with their authenticity.
If you're energized by KILL IT and want to continue charging up - plug in with J. Young 'cause he has a monthly music drop for the rest of the year. He aims to break his record of a quarter million plays on Spotify.
Let's band together, run up KILL IT and break J. Young's record into 500k plays, with this track it should be effortless.
G-Salih - Purpose
Hey, quick question, what's your purpose?
That's the highly infectious start from Virginia-based lyricist G-Salih on his track, Purpose.
Purpose pleasantly zaps you just like a lightning bolt, it has an illuminating audible calm, and the lyrical content shoots through powerfully and swiftly. Lasting only for a short time—one minute and thirty-seven seconds to be exact, it's slightly longer than the usual electrical sky show.
G-Salih presents listeners with an instant intellectual renewal, complete with his submerged flow, grounding insight, airy curiosities, fiery philosophies, and a penetrative pen!
"I wrote Purpose intentionally. There are plenty of moments when artists and other creatives sit and wonder what the point of everything we’re doing really is. In a modern culture where we’re influenced by so much, finding a purpose in what you do and what’s most important to you is the anchor to everything you do in life. This track was inspired by that search." - G Salih
Purpose is a G-style freestyle with an abundance of Hip-Hop elements. G-Salih honours honesty and bares his Sun in Sag and Moon in Reggaeton-influenced introspection that uplifts the iconic Olivia sample by The Whispers. If planet Jupiter has a playlist, G-Salih is on it.
"The production was all Bugginout (@james90skid). The inspiration came from when beats had that boom bap. Chopping up soul samples in what they call the ‘golden age’ of hip hop. It’s really paying homage to those who inspired me." - G-Salih
Producer James Walker better known as Bugginout, did the beat justice, enhancing G-Salih's thought-provoking style with a modern take on a classic throwback.
If you can't get enough of G-Salih like the rest of us, he has a whole treasury full of new music dropping all throughout 2023, his highly anticipated EP will also release later in the year. Stay in the loop with G-Salih and elevate your frequency by running up Purpose.
Sygocrazy - Talk Nice
LOS ANGELES, USA
If you wanna be Sygocrazy's wifey, well, then you gotta talk to him nicely!
Sy is in his zone and showing both sides on his track, Talk Nice.
If it's devotion that you want, Sygocrazy will channel his energy accordingly if you're the right one.
He transitions from his player antics and adjusts the energy accordingly to a love interest he seems absorbed by. Talk Nice is the type of track that attracts a certain demeanour; we're talking about the 'lady in the streets but a freak in the sheets' characters.
"Talk nice is about really being willing to change my single ways for the girl in my life.
No more player ways, no more promiscuity.
So, in light of the change, I demand to be spoken to nicely haha."- Sygocrazy
It's upbeat with lulling key loops, and Sy's R'N'B melody eases the tempo, enkindling a steamy explosion of euphony while lustfully vocalising. The producer (who we were unable to identify) combines the spice with a sugared sample, enjoy the distorted deceleration at the end of the track.
So if you ride, then Sygocrazy is the right speed for you. Talk Nice is just the beginning of his bedroom-inspired catalogue; he keeps it coming with a range of ready-to-be streamed tracks like Bed and Stay, which is among our favourites.
Recently, he concluded a performance in Beverly Hills, and we've got word that March will be full of release madness and a few fiery visuals for viewers.
Tap in to stay tuned and heat up your night with Talk Nice by Sygocrazy.
Ramaj Eroc - Kemba Walker
Balling like Lebron? Swishing like Steph? Ramaj Eroc is on his Kemba Walker step with this renegade release.
Ramaj Eroc is a lyricist, leading with a leap full of cadence as he plays back his struggle through bars of creativity and celebrates the confidence gained from adversity in Kemba Walker. His words slice ferociously as he aims for the money shot. Ramaj isn't looking for approval; he does what he loves, and he'll charge it to the game.
This track is not for the faint of heart; he's dropping dimes, calling out expired aesthetics, flexing and stressing his Gary Vee approach, while rhyming how the rest appear to be more like McGhee.
"Kemba Walker is an NBA basketball player, and I'm a huge basketball fan. If anyone is as big of a fan as I am of basketball, they'd know Kemba Walker's step-back has always been elite! Just Google 'Kemba Walker step-back game winner'. That clip is probably the greatest step-back of all time, especially given the circumstances. Just like | referenced on the hook, that's the type of groove I'm in." - Ramaj Eroc
Each verse exhales a cadent fire. The beat bounces back and forth in a zippy loop. Kemba Walker is written, laid down, and produced all by Ramaj. The only thing burning here is this musical inferno; it's a slam dunk for us.
"I actually sampled one of my 2021 releases. That's one of my things. I sample my own songs pretty often." - Ramaj Eroc
He just wrapped up a performance in Salt Lake City during the NBA All-Star weekend and is currently in the process of lining up multiple single releases throughout this year. Ramaj has at least 10 singles in the vault, and he plans to drop them like back-to-back drills.
Don't snooze, don't sleep; throw Ramaj Eroc into your rotation, and run up Kemba Walker, expeditiously.
Just Jimi - EVIL
Keeping it short and sweet with track one from his album STILL SHINING II, Just Jimi loads up the barrel and releases an ephemeral sonic spasm titled EVIL.
He may be walking with demons, though this joint sounds like something from above instead of below, with a slightly eerie echo. Just Jimi delivers a kaleidoscope of cosmic notes, a celestial guitar loop, and a husky-like low flow that caresses each instrument as he pours his heart out over his past. You can hear the deep emotion twirling through his mind as he reflects and redirects his energy to the present while vocally delivering EVIL.
"I think it was just that late night/early morning time frame in the studio. I was by myself, and I remember a heavy vibe coming into the studio and just lingering over me. "Evil" was the culmination of that, looking back on how I got past a lot of heavy evil shit in my life, and a lot of those elements still sit on my soul at times. My purer self fights with that shadow self all the time." - Just Jimi
EVIL evokes the energetic combat between the darkness and the light within the soul, with the two constantly buffering and re-balancing long after the intention is sown. The memory of what was remaining with the choice to reignite the chaos or snuff it out, and Just Jimi captures the push and pull with this particular track.
"This was a beat that was sitting in a folder of beats producers sent me. If I had to say something, it would be what I expressed—it was a buildup, if you will because the production feels heavy, it feels cinematic, and it feels like something is lurking in the back of your neck." - Just Jimi
Adding to his excellently executed experimental catalogue, Just Jimi has dropped more musical gems, including a Pop/Punk Hip Hop blend with his track Otherside and a softer RNB track with Believe. He is scheduled to release his album SEE U NEVER and he has zero intention of taking a hiatus!
Whether you’re in the club turning up or prefer downshifting the tempo, Tiffany Likoudis has delivered a speed that meets everyone’s needs on her house-infused track, USED TO (Club Mix).
Starting off softly and slowly, Tiffany Likoudis eases listeners into her melodic trance, reminiscing on what used to be, wanting to bring back sensual slow dancing, the romancing, and the days when music meant something. Then the beat drops, creating an electrifying upbeat pulsation.
USED TO (Club Mix) focuses on the current trend of situationships and is delivered in two musically provocative forms: the vivifying club mix and the gentle R&B melody written by Quincy Thompson and Tiffany. Whatever state you’re in, it’ll leave you in an idyllic reverie!
"While recording 'Used To' (the original R&B version), I realised how the track was vocally dominant; the whole track had a stripped-back beat and focused on the vocals. This actually presented an opportunity, as it could be turned into any genre possible. The idea for House came from the team at Beats with Sheph, who mentioned it during my vocal session. After this happened, I connected with producer Aspecte, and we came up with the idea for the remix, and I just couldn’t get enough of it. It brought a whole different vibe, it brought the track to life! It comes as no surprise that I enjoy House and R&B, so when the opportunity to split my song into two different genres arose, I jumped at it. ‘Used To’ the original and the remix, both have the same lyrics, yet bring such different vibes and feelings out to the audience when listening". - Tiffany Loukidis
If you're digging the vibes on USED TO (Club Mix), you'll definitely love her newest deep house jam, On My Way. It has that fast-paced, swift vibration that delivers all the sensations of summer.
