Orchestral Hip Hop

Genaddy took motivational hip-hop to a cinematically fiery new plateau with his debut, 1,000 Mile.

After dropping his debut single, 1,000 Mile, the veraciously fresh rapper, Genaddy, has already shed his up-and-coming underdog status, amassing over 56k monthly listeners on Spotify with his astronomically high-octane energy.

By taking motivational hip-hop to a cinematically fiery new plateau with orchestral elements sweeping across the big beats, there’s no overstating the epic scale, dramatic intensity, or the way the production enhances the storytelling.

With a flow as fervent as Busta Rhymes and Twista paired with the sharp and ingenious wordplay of Nas and Lil Wayne and the production pumping out the innovative and emotional resonance of a Hans Zimmer score, we may as well hand the keys to the hip-hop dominion over to Genaddy in 2024. With a debut LP locked, loaded and ready to drop nuclear bombs on the airwaves next year, Genaddy isn’t an artist you want to sleep on.

Check out the 1,000 Mile single, featuring the B-side, Circles, on Spotify now.

Jae Casino – Across Town featuring Just Nikki and Sunni

Orchestral Hip Hop preludes don’t come much more arrestive than what you’ll find in Jae Casino’s latest single “Across Town” featuring Just Nikki and Sunni.

But it isn’t too long before the equally-as-captivating wavy polyphonic Hip Hop beats kick in with the ethereal orchestral layers weaving behind them. Vocally, Across Town bounces between deadpan convictive Rap in the verses and RnB harmonics in the chorus injecting plenty of dynamic versatility into the mix along with the added bonus of collaborative chemistry.

With the midtempo flow, the high polish on the production, and the solid hooks in Across Town, it’s a track which demands repeat attention. Any fans of contemporary experimental Hip Hop will definitely want it on their playlists.

You can check out Across Town for yourselves by heading over to Spotify now.
