Look For Purpose: Westside Ultra feel invincible on rapid-fire ‘Drunk Villain Freestyle’

As he takes command of the mic beside him and vows to always be in control of his own destiny, Westside Ultra sips up quick and lashes down his raw bars on the brand new ‘Drunk Villain Freestyle‘.

19-year-old Westside Ultra is a Midwest-born, Texas-based indie rapper who has made it his mission to grab hold of his future and never let go no matter what.

Growing up with a father who has a passion for music, it only made sense that some of that became ingrained in him at a young age. It wasn’t until years later in high school, that writing and putting out music as something fun, would lead to a full-time passion for music and the industry.” ~ Westside Ultra

Displaying his youthful charm and shredding through each verse with signature aplomb, Westside Ultra dusts off anything shadowing over his shine on a track that leads us into his thoughtful mind that knows these bad habits could break him down at any moment.

Drunk Villain Freestyle‘ from the upcoming Midwest-born, Texas-based indie hip-hop artist Westside Ultra, is a story all about setting aside those inner doubts that can hold you back as you attempt to keep things simple and down the demons one gulp at a time. He displays impressive rap skills with a beat attached that seems to suit his aura just right. With so many artists in the game and those bills piling up, it is certainly hard to keep the faith. This seems to be a rapper who understands his strengths and just wants to forge ahead until he truly makes it on top.

Life is about taking risks after all when others decide to take the easy route and never fulfil their true potential.

As he raps about staying strong and keeping away from the easy distractions that can take you down the torturous tunnels of doom rather quickly, Joey Steez lights us up with some true talk on ‘Manifesting(feat. Midas Welle).

Joey Steez is a multi-skilled Midwest, USA-based hip-hop artist engineer, videographer, and music producer. He is an underground artist who likes to keep things only truthful, as he strays away from the corny fluff that clogs up the drains of most ears.

His bars are hard and so ominously slammed inside our minds, with grinder flows which might shake unwitting skeletons back into action. The beat grabs you in like a hungry vampire who wants that delicious blood, and takes us on a head-bobbing journey to that promised lane we all seek.

He draws his influences from the late 90’s and early 2000’s southern hip hop, as well as East Coast rap.” ~ Joey Steez

BagDadLean & Slutty Jordie rip the mic on the new Hip Hop single ‘Jackwoods’

BagDadLean & Slutty Jordie give us a life lesson about ladies and 420 here on their new Hip Hop track called ‘Jackwoods‘.

BagDadLean is a young Midwest artist that is very versatile as he can rap and switch it up to an R&B number all in the same song. This is a rare skill that is often not done well. He does however impress on this new track that is only his 2nd even release on Spotify. With lots of hunger and aspirations to be as massive as Drake, this is an ambitious emcee and singer with big dreams. I love this confidence, going for the top is the way forward.

This is all about being careful with the ladies. You need to find a loyal lady otherwise if you end up with the wrong one, she will suck your bank account dry and then vanish like the cleaning product. The beat is so laid back and stoner style, with the deep voices and you feel the smoke filled energy in the air.

BagDadLean & Slutty Jordie show us their skill set on the new ‘Jackwoods‘ single that is a winner in the Hip Hop playlists all over the world. If they can keep consistent and focus on getting their music out there, there is a chance they could make it massive.
