Jay Wst is an eighteen-year-old rapper from Brooklyn, NYC, and ‘Street’ – his second single – is exactly what you might expect; a raw, honest, coming-of-age story of life, and the fear of sudden death, in a city that looks the other way. The lyrics, set to a well-produced background of hip hop beats, are snappy, brutal, telling Wst’s truth with a voice of vulnerability and defiance.

Review by Alex Holmes
Mar Keith Anthony is a rap artist with a really modern approach to his sound. His recent track, Foreva, is heavily inspired by trap and modern hip-hop. The rap flow is direct and characterful, embracing rhythm and melody in equal doses. The 808-style beat is particularly awesome: it is warm and saturated, almost as if your speaker were about to break! I really love how the ad-libs add more power to the performances, highlighting the best rhymes and really helping dynamics shine through in a song.
The song has got a really upbeat feel, but the tempo is actually chill as well. This is a great track to really match your mood, whether you are feeling like cruising or chilling, this song can really be adaptable to a wide variety of circumstances due to the flexibility and versatility of this particular production.
