Lavi$h teamed up with LL$ and Oladiupo Ogunmola to create their hazily trippy Indie Hip Hop debut single “Melodies”

For their debut single “Melodies”, breaking Rap artist Lavi$h teamed up with LL$ & Oladiupo Ogunmola to create a freshly dynamic accessible Hip Hop hit. The tones are intoxicating, and the vibe couldn’t be sweeter.

The melodically trippy feat of downtempo Hip Hop practically demands a spot on your vibe out playlists from the first listen. The polished yet hazy production is all too easy to sink into while the vocals ensure that you’re treated to a track which boasts a smorgasbord of progressive immersive appeal.

There’s plenty of soul projected in the mix, but that didn’t mean that Lavi$h had to hold back on the amount of attitude poured into the slick contemporary drop.

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

Fiery Lyrical Conviction Meets Ambient Beats in GV’s Standout Hip Hop Single “Lil Min”

Breaking Hip Hop artist & activist GV made their debut in 2018 with the firestorm of a Rap album “Calm Before the Storm”. If you let the release pass you by, there’s no better time to hit play on the collection of adrenalizing convictive tracks which tackle issues which are (unsurprisingly) just as prevalent today.

The perfect introduction to GV’s fiery approach to ambient Hip Hop is Lil Man, a mould-breaking feat of Hip Hop where ambient dreamy beats create the platform for GV’s justifiably aggressive vocals which verse the hard-hitting, raw and real lyrics.

The lyrics may invoke a smorgasbord of emotion, but the smooth and hazy production makes sure that any anger thrown your way in Lil Man hits you accordantly.

Arcenio Cayetano has dropped their atmospherically intense Hip Hop debut “Ttab”

If it has been a while since you heard a Hip Hop debut worth getting excited about, hit play on Arcenio Cayetano’s first officially released single Ttab.

Ttab kicks off with an artfully arrestive prelude which will ensure that you’re well and truly transfixed by the time Arcenio Cayetano’s high-vibe unapologetically salacious bars kick in.

The up and coming artist made stylistic comparisons hard to make with the way the mix constantly evolves. Expect to find nuances of RnB, Pop, Trap and Old School Hip Hop weaved into the futuristically fresh, atmospherically intense track which was polished with precision by Mango Tree Productions.

Flee Bossin’ has made their debut with the mesmerizing Alt Hip Hop drop “Don’t Hit My Line”

It is no easy feat for up and coming Hip Hop artists to set themselves leagues apart from the rest with their debut singles. Perceptibly, NYC Rapper Flee Bossin’ achieved that with the release of “Don’t Hit My Line”.

Don’t Hit My Line mixes up the usual Hip Hop beats with striking minor-key synth notes around the rattle of the 808s while Flee Bossin’ verses the lyrics which he dug deep to find. His lyrical flex is so on point you’ll feel pierced as you listen to the witty introspection which is all too easy to relate to.

Hip Hop debuts don’t come much hotter than this. If you’re looking for a true connection when you hit play along with absorbing instrumentals, Don’t Hit My Line comes highly recommended.
