Smoove Gotti shines on 3 bangers “Faded/Shattered Star/Hell Yeah”



Since 2013, Smoove Gotti has been sharpening his sword. Locked in the lab, with beat after beat swirling around him, the Ohio rapper has been in a chrysalis of musical development. Now, he is finally ready to emerge. “Faded”, “Hell Yeah” (feat. Oh), and “Shattered Star” (feat. Corey Jones), are a few outtakes from his six year sessions; all culminating into a blitzkrieg release for 2019. They each, in their own climatic way, highlight the growth of this Cleveland emcee; and his readiness to dominate the new year with an onfall of genre-bending sounds. “Faded” is a sample-heavy tribute to everyone’s favorite herb; channeling a smooth, softly drummed production under a blunt roll of rhymes. “Hell Yeah” pursues a rap-heavy, Dubstep aesthetic that would float perfectly about a local rave or nightclub; and “Shattered Star” is a sensual dive into airy R&B. Smoove Gotti lays verses full of romantic bars, whilst Corey Jones slips in harmonically to bridge the gaps. There is a variety in this trio of records that explicitly highlights Gotti’s sonic evolution. He forwards a new energy and ambiance with each of these records released; determined not to be pigeonholed in one genre or another. He is always searching for a way to push the envelope, and “Faded”, “Hell Yeah”, and “Shattered Star”, are astonishing successes in that regard. Luckily, we won’t have to wait long for the Midwestern musician’s next project. Slated for an April 1st release, is a joint album with fellow Cleveland artist, R Stonze, titled “Business As Usual”. After listening to these three tracks, you won’t want to miss what’s coming this Spring.

UK HIPHOP >> Owen Mc Grory releases soulful new single: “OHH Baby”

UK HIPHOP >> Owen Mc Grory releases soulful new single: “OHH Baby”

UK HIPHOP >> Owen Mc Grory releases soulful new single: “OHH Baby”





On what was Hip-Hop founded? Funk. The early architects of this powerful genre used funk rhythms and samples as the baseline for their rhymes; and ever since, the two art forms have upheld the closest relationship. So close, that Hip-Hop artist of today still harken back to the danceable genre and honor it with their own, fresh creations. For instance, Owen Mc Grory, and his soulful “OHH BABY”. The Soundcloud single is an infectious party-starter; boosted by iridescent melodies and a radio-ready groove. The bounce of “OHH BABY” is ridden perfectly by Mc Grory’s rhymes. The Irishman rocks the pockets of his record’s old-school drums with a river-running flow. When an airy synth slides into the mix, signaling the chorus, our London-based talent launches into a series of energetic, funk-heavy chants. “OHH BABY” has a bounce that no audience can evade; and Owen Mc Grory honors this nostalgic beat with skills no Hip-Hop purist can ignore. He has been possessed by the spirit of Funk; and with it, he’ll be rocking parties all year long.

Nike Jays New Single “TaKiNg OvEr”



Nike Jays plans on “TaKiNg OvEr” with his first offering of 2019. Autotune-driven, and completely his own, “TaKiNg OvEr” is a fleeting crusade into contemporary trap territory. It clocks in a bit over two minutes; fulfilled by a trampoline of 808s, zipping hihats, and a simplistic sparkle of synthesized keys. The upcoming Chicago rapper’s use of melody is what steals the show here, as he can be heard colorfully cruising through a burst of bars.

LOF BOSSGHETTO drops heartfelt trap single “94” Prod by DJ FLII





“Sugar water, no koolaid in sight...” For any one well acquainted with living in urban, American poverty, these bars will shake a part of your soul. Although their rapper, LOF BOSSGHETTO, delivers them in s suave, autotuned blur, they pack a poignant punch. Such is the trend for many bars in the New York spitter’s recent release, “94”: an open-hearted, modern-trap hit produced by DJ FLII. The record is precursed by a sorcerous surge of ambiance and keys, which are eventually satisfied by the boom of a pristine 808. A snare backed by hi-hats and a sparkling triangle complete the beat; and once so, LOF BOSSGHETTO is free to glide. He wastes no time on “94”, hitting the mic with an undying fire the moment he hops on. Rhymes regarding his trauma and suffering, deaths of his mother and friends, and the crushing drug addiction of his father are plenty on the Tacoma-based artist’s new track. Despite how calm he is, you can feel the pain in LOF BOSSGHETTO’s voice, and it is inexorably moving. It wrenches you deeper into his story; until you, yourself, feel hurtfully apart of it. You have never felt agony like you will on “94”; and you will never hear another artist put pain together so pleasantly unless the talented LOF BOSSGHETTO is involved.

Jam out to new album “TRAP: True Real and Presence” by hiphop group, Enlightenment (Dom.P x Twin 2xs x T-Hood)



New York will forever and always be the mecca of Hip-Hop. Whether rocking the radio with its take on trap music, or celebrating the Golden Era, boom-bap sound it birthed, The Empire State will always be at the forefront of rap. Likewise, its emcees will always be some of the best this country has to offer. Case in point: Enlightenment, a Buffalo trio devoted to resurrecting real rap. In dropping their 2019 effort, “TRAP: True, Real & Presence”, each one of them shines a lyrical light of their own. The clique is made up of Dom.P, Twin 2xs and the phenomenal femcee, T-Hood. Their chemistry is absolute when it comes to “True Real & Presence”. There is an abundance of speaker-thumping anthems running through this ten-track project— such as “Drug Deal” (feat. ElCamino), “Regular”, “Zoo” and “”JumpMan”. However, nothing hits harder than the boom-bap inflections riddling the project. T-Hood already stands out amongst her brethren as a powerful emcee; however, her performance, as well as her partners’ — on songs like “Straight Bars” launched her into another atmosphere. In forty minutes, Enlightenment go from being another trio of spitters, to the modern paragon of New York Hip-Hop artistry. They completely annihilated any beat that comes their way. With Buffalo picking up steam through Griselda Records, the door to stardom is ajar for this creative trio. “True, Real & Presence” is their first, herculean step through that vestibule. Check it out below, and stay tuned for The Enlightenment Tour coming to a city near you this August.
