Hip Hop Collective

Skyqru delivered the permission to ‘Let Go’ in their latest mellow trap hit.

The LA/Vegas alt-hip hop collective, Skyqru, formed during the most uncertain months of the pandemic in 2020 to uplift the world while locking horns with socio-political issues and breaking the stigma of personal issues.

After the success of their debut album, Pollution, they’ve dropped their single, Let Go, which is well on its way to going viral with over 33k streams on Spotify alone since the recent release. The mellow indie trap track takes a compassionate approach to unshackle you from things that no longer serve you. Skyqru truly is the Elliott Smith of hip hop with their soft melodies, ethereal atmosphere and raw lyricism.

It is always perceptible how much artists throw themselves into their music; you’d be hard-pressed to find other rap artists that personally and honestly invest so heavily in their craft. It is no surprise that their sound is garnering so much attention.

Let Go is available to stream on Spotify.

The dynamic collective of emcees, High Frequency, have released their seminally sweet RnB pop track, Part Ways.

High Frequency’s latest single, ‘Part Ways’, is potentially the sweetest RnB pop breakup track to have ever hit the airwaves. Between the melodic sticky sweet indie instrumentals, the sentimental lyrics which run through the inner turmoil that transpired in spite of the affection and the velvety smooth vocals, you’d need to be dead from the soul down not to feel the weight in this frankly genius hit.

High Frequency is a music collective featuring five true-to-their-own-style emcees who respectively bring their hometown influence to the table, resulting in a mash of Memphis rap, NYC grooves, 90s hip hop flows, modern trap styles and modern gospel roots. We can’t wait to hear more infatuation-worthy tracks from this powerhouse of a collective.

Part Ways is due for official release on November 6th. You can check it out for yourselves on SoundCloud.

The Neverending Mixtape shows their teeth in JAWS!

There are plenty more than two chords in The Neverending Mixtape’s dark jungle hip hop hit JAWS! that features 724x, Wolfman Longarm, Stakes, ¡kylkenny! And Trip C.

The bass-drenched hit was created by strangers who met on the internet and formed a consistently expanding collective that now includes over 40 members. All of their rapid-fire aggressive trap bars were recorded in their home and personal studios before the beats were engineered and produced across the globe within the collective.

After building a loyal fan base, the collective ensured they had plenty more releases locked, loaded and ready to drop. If you pride yourself on having the freshest hip hop talent on your playlists, make room for The Neverending Mixtape.

You can check out JAWS! for yourselves by heading over to Spotify.

Making you blue: GRNBRIER show us the future with exceptional debut track ‘HUH?’

GRNBRIER drop debut track ‘HUH?‘ and this exhilarating new single will leave you gasping for air at the tasty creative juices that are clearly abundant here.

Vernon Hills, Chicago indie five-piece Hip Hop collective GRNBRIER mesh their tight beats and wild kick flips to ear-catching levels- as they rip the mic off its hinges with a top performance to leave you licking your lips for more.

Lead by Love Seat, they are on a carefully planned music mission to get their music heard to all corners of the globe with their catchy rap melodies and authentic style.

The groovy lo-fi-type beat gets you into the mood right away and you can’t help clicking your fingers. There is lots to like here as the Hip Hop energy is so smooth like a freshly shaved bald head.

This is a group with so much soul and the chorus will be stuck in your head all day due to the curiously catchy vibe and electric vibration that lights you up out of this dark slumber.

This is the story about caring so much for someone but they are just not showing you the same love all the time. They just want to be with you when they want but otherwise they shade you like an umbrella. All you want is to be happy but they are making you blue and its affecting your mood as you try and stay positive.

HUH?‘ from Chicago outfit GRNBRIER is a fresh new perspective on the Hip Hop genre that has slowly started to go stale like off milk in your fridge. This is instead a revitalization- so fresh and nice, you will be looking and listening twice.

Hear this fine new song on Spotify and see more visuals on IG.

Tha Individuals have dropped their distinctively hypnotic feat of Hip Hop “Seasons”

Breaking Hip Hop collective Tha Individuals have just dropped their experimentally atmospheric new mix “Seasons”.

Even though there’s plenty of grind, momentum and conviction which pours from Seasons, the downtempo pacing and inventive production style transform the mix into a distinctively hypnotic feat of Hip Hop.

With each of the four artists including Shmobandie, AldeezDaGreat, WestMoDollaz and Dubsandup bringing a different vocal dynamic to the mix, each progression in the soundscape feels as fresh as the last.

Tha Individuals come highly recommended to anyone who appreciates pioneering ingenuity from up and coming artists. Get them on your radar.

You can check out Seasons for yourselves by heading over to Spotify now. Keep up to date with the artist’s latest releases via Facebook.
