AJ Tweek factory resets the Hip Hop game with ”Eye/Eye”

Have you ever stumbled onto a Hip Hop track with such a dope flow that it blows your mind? You admire the wild creativity and wonder how on earth they created this underground masterpiece. This is one of those times. AJ Tweek is the name and his new track ”Eye/Eye” has such a prodigiously groovy beat with galaxy-grabbing rap skills.

Summerville is a town in the U.S. state of South Carolina. This is the home of the wonderfully unique Emcee named AJ Tweek. Remember this name. He believes that he is from space and has been sent here by an old friend. I believe he has been sent back in time to refresh the Hip Hop game and factory reset this proud genre from it’s currently disappointingly stagnant time.

AJ Tweek’s flow is like no other and the way he toys with his audience with his completely unconventional way of spitting bars on a beat, that has been perfectly designed for this tricksters signature style. Summerville Storyteller Tweek’s stories of life are truly fascinating, this is a wise youngster who has lived life, attempted to teleport out of school and who has just brought much-needed freshness to the stale Rap game.

Get this song in your ears immediately on AJ’s SoundCloud.

MC KREWD proves that comedy does have a place in Hip Hop with her single “Single Mother Malady”

I’ve always been a firm believer that comedy has as much of a place in music as it does in Film. That belief is rock solid after listening to up and coming Aussie Hip Hop artist MC KREWD’s wittily satirical track Single Mother Malady.

If Kath & Kim did a Rap track, I have a feeling that it would sound a little like this. I mean, let’s be honest, we’ve heard enough Rap artist attempting to glamorise themselves and put us under the illusion that they’re baller deities. It was about time an artist shattered the illusion. MC KREWD absolutely obliterated it with her sense of humour.

MC KREWD’s approach to Hip Hop may not be everyone’s cup of tea, but artists so unapologetically bold and expressive will always have a place on the airwaves.

To fully appreciate Single Mother Malady, watching the official music video which premiered on April 30th, 2020 is a must. You can check it out for yourselves via YouTube.

Grunge Trap Trailblazer Zlumpyy Has Dropped His Fiercest Track Yet with “Rude!”

https://soundcloud.com/zlumpyyyyyyy/rude

Up and coming Trap artist Zlumpyy has created plenty of mould-breaking Trap hits in 2020, but the best introduction to their fiercely authentic style is undoubtedly their recently released aural storm Rude! produced by Mathiastyner.

By incorporating the same untameable angst as 90s Grunge pioneers into their adrenalized Trap mix, Rude! is as volatile as Trap gets. The track may be short, but it packs a convictive punch and you can practically taste the creative catharsis which it contains.

Zlumpyy’s invention of the Scream Trap genre may not be for the faint-hearted, but truly expressive rarely ever is.

You can check out Zlumpyy’s track Rude! along with the rest of their releases via SoundCloud.
