Loss Cozz – Mamba: Funk-Driven Hyped R&B Hip Hop

Reverberant bass and upbeat vibes don’t often go hand in hand in Hip Hop, but with Loss Cozz’s (AKA Justin Trapani) latest single “Mamba” the captivatingly fresh artist cooked up an infectiously rhythmic track which we’re pretty sure you’re going to want as a part of your playlists.

Any fans of Post Malone, Drake and Travis Scott are sure to appreciate the chilled mix which sees Loss Cozz switching between commanding Rap verses to R&B Pop-style vocals to add plenty of texture to the single which keeps you delighted with every single progression. Loss Cozz’s vibrant approach to production allows his sound to resonate with absolute distinction, and if any 2019 Hip Hop track deserves to go viral, it’s Mamba.

Preacherman Drops His Latest Single “The World is Mine” ft. Miz Tiffany

For his latest single “The World is Mine” the established Hip Hop artist Preacherman teamed up with Miz Tiffany to create a fresh new drop which offers a little more absolution than your average offering from a Rap artist. Miz Tiffany’s Missy Elliot-style Rap vocals bring a striking dynamic and fresh energy to the single but there’s no denying that Preacherman could have held his own in the hard-hitting single.

Don’t let the fact that Preacherman has been ordained question his ability to wax lyrical and lay down heavy authoritative bars with lyrics that are aimed to inspire. The World is Mine is a track that resonates regardless of your religious inclinations thanks to pitch-perfect production and visceral amount of good vibes poured into the mix. Couldn’t we all need a few more good vibes right now?

Danxx Twinz Bring their Wit and Melodic Talent to Their Latest Energetic Hip Hop Drop “Flavors”

If your Hip Hop playlists are missing energetic contemporary beats, the latest drop from the Danxx Twinz will make the perfect new addition. Their latest single “Flavors” locks down the melody, amps up the rhythm and brings the charisma to the bars.

But perhaps the most captivating part of this single is how raw, real and relatable the lyrics are. They perfectly encapsulate the nature of contemporary relationships without resorting to misogyny (I was starting to think that it impossible in Hip Hop) or allowing the track to become in danger of being a little cheesy. There’s the perfect pinch of romanticism in the commanding bars which allow Danxx Twinz to use the track as a testament to their playfully witty lyrical style.

JaeBoy – Moonset: The Artist Making it Safe to Have Faith in Hip Hop Again

spotify:track:4oH2EzNEnMydgtrxjZiBAC

There are plenty of Trap artists giving the genre a bad name right now, thankfully artists such as JaeBoy are here to restore the faith by putting out infectiously experimental and expressive tracks.

The up and coming Texas-based artist put plenty of reverberant bass behind his beats with his debut single “Moonset” which unfolds through a multi-layered construction with plenty of texture between the bass, the rattle and snare of the 808s and the haunting layers of Jazz Hip Hop. But as impressive as the beat is, it is with his vocal ability that JaeBoy takes his single to the next level. After perfecting the art of beatboxing JaeBoy made light work of the verses in Moonset. There’s also a lot to be said about the intellectual, yet playfully engaging lyricism which is on offer in Moonset.

If anyone is wondering how to create a contemporary Hip Hop hit, press play on Moonset and take notes.

Lightweight Literate – Father Knew: Infectiously Euphoric Hip Hop

Hip Hop has never been the happiest genre, so every time you stumble across a Hip Hop Rap artist putting out infectiously happy beats its hard not to get hit by the feel-good hype. Which is exactly what happened with Lightweight Literate’s latest single “Father Knew”.

With the production in the deft hands of Ocean Beats, Father Knew became a radio-ready hit which has every potential of becoming your next Hip Hop perennial earworm. You can also start to appreciate why the artist titled themselves Lightweight Literate as you listen to the intellectualism in the bars which is versed through perfect meter and rhyme. Lightweight Literate mixes it up in between R&B-style crooning an unfathomably relentless Rap versing ensuring that there isn’t an ounce of excessive repetition within the single.

The REVELATION – ALREADY INSANE: Ominously Enigmatic Hip Hop

Hip Hop Rap artist the REVELATION has recently dropped the first track off their upcoming album “UNPLANNED DESTINY TAPE”. With the single “ALREADY INSANE” you get a taste of the commanding energy which the South African artist pours into his soundscapes; not just through the Rap bars, but also through the ominous tonality of his Hip Hop beats.

While I can always appreciate relentlessly versed Rap vocals, the fast pace of ALREADY INSANE made it a little hard to keep up with the lyrical narrative which slightly affected the resonance of the track. Having said that, if you sit back and appreciate the smooth aural treat which the up and coming Hip Hop artist has cooked up, there are plenty of reasons to fall enamoured by the ingenuity and distinction of the artist’s style.

D47’s Upcoming Single “Tired” Proves How Far the Boundaries of Hip Hop Can Be Pushed

While there are many artists experimenting with Alt Hip Hop by using elements of Rock and Metal, nothing resonates in quite the way that up and coming artist D47’s latest single “Tired”.

The track kicks off with a fairly archetypal Hip Hop prelude before leading up to the explosive chorus in which D47 hits you with vocals which could have given Chris Cornell’s a run for his money. The multi-layered Hip Hop transgresses throughout the single offering you punchy electronic energy against cutting swells of orchestral strings.

What artists such as Yelawolf and Saul Williams brought to the Hip Hop genre D47 has brought with his latest upcoming single Tired. And I can assure you, absolutely nothing sounded tired about his latest drop.

You’ll have to wait a little bit longer before you can check out the official video to D47’s latest single Tired. In the meantime, check out his earlier releases via YouTube.

Underground NYC-based Rap Artist Charlie Wayy Drops His Latest Album

“INTERLUDE” is the latest single from up and coming Hip Hop artist Charlie Wayy. For the intro he chose to set the ominous tonality of the track with a crack on thunder – but what follows is far more resounding.

Even though the track is little over a minute long, Charlie Wayy still manages to stamp down his aural authority through his relentlessly rolling Rap bars which carry the perfect amount of angst to make sure you will be hooked on every line. Thankfully the other tracks on New York City-based artist Charlie Wayy’s latest album “SideWalkChalk” are infinitely longer and give you a better impression of just how fresh, atmospheric, and commanding his style is.

With the infusion of world beats, there’s a magnetic snaking rhythm to the single around layers of electronic effect which makes How It Is a track not only for Hip Hop fans, but for those who appreciate exotic electronica too. The intricate melodies create the perfect platform for Plastic Terras commanding rap bars which keep the perfect meter and rhyme while versing his lyrical ingenuity. Straight from the first verse of this radio-ready single it is perceptible that Plastic Terras has a massive amount of commercial potential for his ability to fuse genres to create a track which assimilates no other.

John J. – Windowz: The Archaically-Styled, Contemporarily Fresh Hip Hop We’ve Been Waiting For.

Any fans of Drake, 2pac, Kendrick Lamar, and Jay Z who are looking for a contemporary hit of Hip Hop which runs through with a slightly archaic feel are sure to appreciate up and coming artist John J.’s latest single “Windowz”.

While the prelude may have been a touch too long, John J. didn’t fail to lay down a smooth yet striking amount of atmospherics with Windowz which utilised soaring orchestral strings in a mix of softly immersive drum beats which almost resonate as primal. Yet, as compelling as the beat behind Windowz was, it was John J.’s lyrics and soft versing style which will make sure that you have to hit repeat on this stunning track which offers a unique level of catharsis.
