Prince Amine is a Morocco-born, Spain-raised, Montreal, Canada-based RnB/hip-hop artist. He fuses a blend of sensual tunes that has you feeling like its summer everyday.

Even if he was exposed to show business at an early age, Prince Amine’s first love was soccer. He was on the path of a professional career when an injury cut his dream short. Around the same time, he started performing in school shows with his friends and he soon realized that music was in his blood.” ~ Prince Amine

Blame Me: Steaming London rapper Synsy heats up the airwaves with anime visuals for ‘MAYDAY!’ (prod. Jon Cass)

Representing trashgang and powering in with a highly unique sound that shows much intent, Synsy turns the lights to red with the emotion-filled new single which thunderously hits the speakers in the sweet spot called ‘MAYDAY!(prod. Jon Cass).

Synsy is a creative London, England-based indie rapper. With anime from Katsugeki Touken Tanbu, this is a heavy track that morphs together to show us his reckless thoughts, which are totally understandable in this odd world.

Defined by the underground, Synsy seamlessly combines elements from the darkest sub-genres of hip hop, punk and drum n bass creating an industrial wasteland of pure aggression.” ~ Synsy

With a full-paced vocal armory at his disposal which shreds through like a sharp sword on fragile butter, this is a mic-destroying track that shows us what its like to live in modern day London as we speak. The beat is more-than-thumping and there are no breaks to have a spot of tea in between – as we are tumbled into a tremendously vein-popping track – which has you looking around rather anxiously and also a tad suspiciously.

MAYDAY!(prod. Jon Cass) from the riveting London, England-based indie drum n bass/rap-fueled act Synsy, shows us an artistically talented artist who sends us a real message of velocity here. This is the story of having one of those days you would rather forget, as you are crashing hard and feeling like some undesirable people are out to get you. The bass is full of heat-stacked pace and the video is rather cleverly made, as we are thrown into a world which will shock your nerves back into action rather quickly.

Solo Star delivers deity-level hip hop in his single, ‘American God’

Solo Star

Ahead of the release of his highly anticipated 4-track EP, ‘The Ballad of Solo Star’, the up and coming artist has given us a taste of what’s to come by giving us a sneak peek of the lead track, American God.

Under the influence of Nas, Andre 3000, J.Cole, 2Pac and Jay-Z, Solo Star carries the same charismatic vocal magnetism. Instrumentally, he’s ascended to his own level and plateaued above most breaking artists. You can’t help getting hooked into the arrestingly rhythmic grooves in American God.

If you pride yourself on having the hottest names in hip hop on your playlists, you will want to make room for Solo Star.

Malcolm Jamal – Blacking Out featuring AGoodman

Malcolm Jamal

Old School hip hop fans will get a potent nostalgia hit from Malcolm Jamal’s latest single, Blacking Out, featuring AGoodman. The beats and rap style may throw back to the glory days of East Coast hip hop, but the lyricism encapsulates the anxiety and anger inspired by our current societal disparity.

It’s tracks like Blacking Out that keep injustice fresh in our minds; ignorance isn’t bliss, but more than that, it’s a visceral invitation to think big and act even bigger. The energy is infectious, and the earworm propensities are relentless.

Check out Malcolm Jamal’s latest single on apple music.
