Rivita & Asemahle – Love Again: Soul-Steeped Hip Hop

When it comes to collaborations, the synergy is either there or it isn’t. When the angelically harmonious vocalist Rivita chose to join forces with Asemahle a work of enigmatic enthrallment was created. It is no understatement to say that the two vocalists possess some of the most authentically unique styles we’ve heard this year. Pair that with the tentatively light piano melodies and soft kicks of the 808 beats which the down-tempo backbone of the track rests upon and you’re in for one captivating treat.

On top of that, it was infinitely refreshing to hear a Rap artist with a rhythmically perfect flow not following suit with the rest of the misogynistic rappers, instead he challenged the toxic lifestyle with an infinitely more soulful approach to his bars.

KUDO – Middle Fingers: Unapologetically Attitude-Driven Hip Hop

Middle Fingers is the debut single from the emerging EDM Pop Hip Hop artist KUDO. As the track unfolds, you’re treated to a mix which is as ingenious as it is explicit, the empowerment which is scribed into the lyrics of Middle Fingers is bordering on overwhelming. Even though the EDM Trap mix may not be prodigal by today’s standards KUDO’s vocal talents and ability to wax lyrical prove why this up and coming artist deserves attention for her resounding style. With a command of meter and rhyme as flawless as KUDO’s it’s hard to see how she couldn’t go far with her talent.

You can check out KUDO’s single Middle Fingers for yourselves by heading over to Spotify now. You probably won’t get the chorus out of your head for a fair few hours but if the ability to create an infectiously fresh chorus doesn’t make a good artist then I’m not sure what does.

Scoot Feat Balmane – My Whoadie; An unbesmirched colossal hit

No matter the way you might wanna slice this one, you can deny the fact that Scoot put up a pack of uptight technical doggedness to further reveal the level at which he so much relishes in the clarity of his impeccable rap prowess.

Scoot, with the collective effort of Balmane, practically served us a fine wine in perfect nature of a song right on this track; you might as well drink to get drunk if you can smell already the “whoadie” that’s been cooked up by this two artist, yeah that’s my “Word-ie”.

The song’s instrumental is a gorgeous array of warm sound and thump that’s carefully synthesized and repeatedly leathered in a reverb. The dexterity of the well-penned lyrics of this song alone is glorious.

On a lighter note, when you’re clogged with zero burden and nothing to worry about, you’ll literally throw dab severally throughout the whole four minutes playtime of this song.

The flow of the song: check. The lyrics of the song: check. The vocals: check. The catchy rap line: check. That trumping beat: OMG double check!

Have you still got any iota of doubt on how true this can be? Do yourself a favour and cop this legit smash hit and get your dabbing skills levelled up.
