Kamyee B – Slogan: Lyrically-Led Blazingly-Fresh Hip Hop

Slogan” is the lyrically-led blazingly fresh Hip Hop drop from up and coming 18-year-old artist Kamyee B. The minimalistic beats leave plenty of room for her convictive Rap bars to totally dominate the track and your attention as the steady atmospheric mix unfolds.

There may be plenty of attitude in Slogan, yet it’s also one of the most connectable Rap tracks we’ve heard this year. Kamyee’s charismatic energy makes Slogan accessible from the first hit and the ingenious outro makes the track unforgettable.

Slogan concludes with a phone conversation that any woman working in any creative industry will understand. It re-enacts the hilarity when sleazy industry guys start appearing from the woodwork start trying to use your own art to get in your pants. Kamyee finds a nuanced and clever way of saying, don’t fall for it.

Ron A.P. – Philly Jawn: Futuristically Hedonistic Hip Hop

With futuristic beats, a grinding melody, and a no holds barred approach to their Rap verses, Ron A.P.’s latest drop “Philly Jawn” is a feat of Hip Hop which you’ll definitely want to tune into.

In a roundabout way, Ron A.P.’s single is a celebration of the many different facets of femininity. There may be a salacious twist to the lyrics, but the love is there regardless. If Philly Jawn dropped on a dancefloor, I can’t imagine that anyone would find it hard to appreciate the groove in this hyped fiery mix.

L4rge – Thank God: Gratitude-Driven Trap

There may not be all too many Trap tracks inspired by gratitude. Thankfully, up and coming artist L4rge’s latest single “Thank God” is a refreshing change.

The bars still offer a pensive sting, and there’s still a downtempo cathartic flow to lock into, but the inspiration and sentiment behind the single transforms the experience of listening to the track. There’s no apathy or grandiosity to drink in, just wavy uplifting mantras which won’t fail to resonate.

Thank God is a track which offers a potent serving of humility. But more importantly, it’s a gently inspiring reminder that no matter how rough the world gets, we’ll always have something to be thankful for. That’s definitely something we all need to hear more of in 2020. And now, I can’t think of one artist better equipped to bring it than L4rge.
