Tampa rapper Big Baby aka Big Baby Scumbag dropped the single “Lucky Charm” earlier this Spring and it’s been on repeat. Now that it’s finally getting warmer outside, this is the perfect track for a backyard function, a top-down drive, or a rooftop indulgence. Complete with wild VHS visuals courtesy of DogXanax, the Drip-133 produced track is one that will stay in your head well into summer.
Rapper Key! spent a large part of 2018 teasing his collaborative album with producer Kenny Beats. The finalized album is 777, a 15 song run through of thumping intensity and electric bounce. Tracks like “Move” and “Toronto” demand to be played on loop at maximum volume. To top it off, Key! provided the visuals for the tracks “Hater” (directed by JimmyRegular) and “Kelly Price Freestyle” (shot by Miggy). The complete package makes 777 one of the most exciting hip-hop releases of 2018.
Milwaukee artist Kenny Hoopla has been building up one hell of a profile with a steady supply of angsty and hypnotic singles. Linking up with producer taxpurposes (the two have a batch of tracks available to the public), the new single “Sickness” might be the pair’s finest yet. If you need more from Kenny Hoopla and taxpurposes, be sure to check out their video for “Waves”, which dropped last summer.
On ‘Revenge’ this Virginian rapper’s latest, Lil Percy sounds like he just woke up, sparked up and couldn’t help but go off about the bullshit permeating his atmosphere and his M.O. is flexing. He rises above, dismissing all the obstacles in his way with exhales of legato flows, and Percy isn’t just blowing smoke. Take a ride on this very airy and dynamically punchy roller coaster of intoxicated confidence v.s. introspection, and don’t let the clouds get in your eye, Percy isn’t some old weed rapper, he’s got an energy that’s uniquely chill but far from a mumble.
It’s been said that the best form of Revenge is Success, and while nothing is guaranteed in this life, Percy is gonna get to the top at some point. Paralleled with the progression that the album takes as a whole is his idea of success in self expression and the ability he sees within himself to make his own way and not waste anymore time with fake love and friends or foes. He has his eyes on the prize and he’s locked in.
If “Revenge” were a hot sauce, and it definitely is some flames, it would be a “creeper” … starts off with plenty of flavor and insight into the tracks ahead but it definitely builds as it goes along, keeping you intrigued and feeling like you can’t get enough. With only 12 tracks averaging less than two and half minutes each, you reach the albums last song and aptly titled “Ending” before you know it. This is a great pre-game or after party soundtrack, not anything to sleep to but would suit you well if stuck in stand still traffic with a little time and angst on your hands and visions of achieving your wildest dreams or having the best possible time trying.
They did a nice interview with Percy last year as well.

Dallas producer tnght/tmrw has been holding my attention since he was in the duo OurSkeletonBones. After making the switch to solo music, he has continued to impress with his late night grooves: a blend of lush instrumentals and autotuned cruisers. Most recently, he produced for vocalist FlexinFab on the single “Everything U Do”.
The lively track was preceded by the single “Duality.” It’s a 2-and-a-half minute instrumental that takes to the clouds, orbits the globe, and comes back down for a truly cosmic experience. An atmospheric body trip, the wordless single demands more than one listen.
Prior to “Duality’, tnght/tmrw released a booming edit to Pinks’s 2000 track “Most Girls.” Loose instrumentals, exclusive singles, and Pink remixes? Yes, it all works within the world of the eclectic producer. The fourth and final piece that he’s released this calendar year is “Facetime”, where he spotlights both his production skills and his vocal skills, making it perhaps my favorite of this high quality bunch. Press play and lose your head for a day.
Rapper OmenXIII and producer Purpdogg joined forces to release the ten track project, Underworld. A dark and haunted auditory experience, the project is a punch in the face, a kick in the gut. Guttural and evil as hell, it’s something to play to concern your family members. Listen to this as you kidnap your enemies, as you set a car on fire, as you pregame your seance.
