It’s all coming up Leone after the rapper’s official debut single, Gotta Love It

The independent rap artist Leone instantly won us over with the witty one-liners and nostalgic samples in his debut single, Gotta Love It. We really do.

The track opens with the acknowledgement of the varying perceptions that will greet you every time you make a move and do anything but wither in isolation and silence. It’s a powerful introduction to the Helsinki-based artist’s distinctive soulful charisma that flows right through this smooth feat of old-school inspired hip hop that puts a brand-new spin on those jazzy sepia-tinged tones.

Leon may only be at the start of his career, but he’s already proven that he has what it takes to break through the oversaturated-with-chancers music industry. Watch this space. He’s undoubtedly going to fill it with witty introspective gold that challenges your perceptions.

Gotta Love It is now available to stream on Spotify.

The415Fortune seeks to make his mark in the history of hip hop with his dynamic hit, Push N Shove.

Each single from The415Fortune is a gritty vignette of his life and an exposition of the streets that raised him; the West Coast-hailing artist mixes up the West Coast sound with a Southern Rap twist to create his dynamic signature sound that is garnering plenty of hype in 2021.

Any fans of Xzibit, Dre, Ja Rule and Tupac will appreciate the convictive grind in his latest single, Push N Shove, which delivers bass-drenched beats, Drill rap bars and unfuckwithable attitude. Beyond his domineering persona is an artist committed to sharing his story and healing from early chapters with his music. We can’t wait to see where his candid, refreshing sound takes him next.

The official video to Push N Shove that premiered on July 21st is available to stream on YouTube.

Dre-Ski raps about being with his dream girl on ‘Twisted’

Dre-Ski raps about being with his ultimate dream girl on the R&B-laced single called ‘Twisted‘.

The young emcee/singer is in fine form here on this new song and things get very steamy on this one.

You think that she is perfect and just want to be with her all the time. You are in love and this is all you ever wanted. She makes you happy and you just want to spend as much time as possible with her. Will this young love last and blossom into something even more incredible? Time will tell but for, all is happy and you couldn’t smile more, even if you tried.

Twisted‘ is the hot new track from Dre-Ski. He sings so well here and the video is so well shot, showcasing the skills of this artist. This lyrics are meaningful, you feel the passion and this is a visually pleasing song. This is an all-round effort and I like the style here, big things await for this talented artist.

A shootout of rhymes: Ryn Scott’s new release Execute

I honestly wasn’t expecting such a shootout of rhymes when I hit play on Ryn Scott’s Execute, let alone my laptop speakers clipping out to the heavy beats.

My first thought went to that Slim Shady motif that conquered Hip Hop’s golden 90’s and Dre’s handprint in the piano loops spiraling into a melodic vortex that sucks down the cumulative mass of mainstream rappers we’re so saturated with.

Execute goes beyond those withered stems of rap bars by cultivating a unique sound through a type of storytelling that poeticizes simple but well-structured harmonies for an authentic pure Hip-Hop banger.

If this is the premise, Ryn Scott has a talent ready to bloom.

You can listen to Execute by heading over on Youtube.
