Ro Ransom – “Wraith”
Ro Ransom‘s latest release “Floetry” hasn’t left my daily rotation since its release months ago, and I’m predicting a similar outcome for “Wraith.” The Harlem native and self-proclaimed “re-born Aliyah” brings his dark soundscape to life across the three-minute cut, which acts as his second release since sharing “Momentum” in late 2017. Ro’s distinctive sound continues to prosper on the fresh cut, and will leave you fiending more from the Mystery Boy.
The Internet – “Come Over”
The Internet have unquestionably become one of the best bands out right now. Originally presented as an Odd Future splinter project ( The group’s lead singer, Syd began her career as OF’s DJ), the band has blossomed into one of the progressive purveyors of funk. Anchored by lead vocalists Syd and Steve Lacy, who also supplies the infectious guitar riffs, the band as a whole epitomizes the neo-soul sound with effortless ease. The potential of this collective of exceptionally talented multi-instrumentalists is still unknown, but as long as they continue to deliver music that moves us, we’ll continue to support both their collaborative and solo efforts. The song itself, like many from the band consists of two parts. The first features Syd taking the lead, the second features Steve repeating “These bitches want diamond rings” until the mesmerizing beat slowly fades leaving us only to wonder when we’ll hear more from the group.
Kanye West – “I Thought About Killing You”
In “I Thought About Killing You,” Kanye West starts his newest album with an extremely honest and prideful spoken word that touches on mental health as well as competing thoughts of suicide and self-love. It is a quintessential example of Kanye in his most Kanye moments. Boastful, yet self-aware. Narcissistic, yet critical. Full of life, yet suicidal. The whole song is a juxtaposition that ends in a confession from a creative that is hurting to get his message across.
Sad Frosty – “The Weekend”
The last six months for Houston, TX born rapper Sad Frosty have been a wild ride for those who have been paying attention. Since the release of his ADHD Freestyle earlier this year he has been taking off. Now, he has returned with a new eccentric music video for his single The Weekend and it is a must-see for fans both new and old. Surrounded by some of LA’s thiccest young ladies, the buzzing rapper flexes his new Hollywood lifestyle over a banging trap beat. Keep your eyes out for more Frosty, he’s up next.
UnoTheActivist – “Lil Flip”
The aggression and sinisterness of both UnoTheActivist and KennyBeats make for a perfect pairing on their newest release, “Lil Flip.” Uno has infinite flows and finds just the right jagged flow to fall in line with Kenny’s hammering bass line. Even though song clocks in at just over two minutes, the energy in the brief window is impressive as Uno is able to squeeze in two full verses and choruses.
