As he worryingly looks into those beautifully glittering eyes, SoldYaSoul urges her to move past what is holding her back from reaching her full potential and join him in his peaceful zone as he can give her everything she needs on ‘BAD TENDENCIES‘.

He’s been rapping all his life but recently wanted to take it serious when his best friend passed away.” ~ SoldYaSoul

You sense his genuinely caring nature as he flows through the mic with an effortless nature, his bars seem to float majestically above all else and has you highly galvanized by his calming presence. The chorus is so inspiring and rather catchy, as the caress-filled beat urges the unnecessary noise of temptation to go away.

His wholehearted vibe is all about that naturally stimulated energy which is produced away from those undesirable narcotics, which only confuses our fragile and easily-influenced minds.

BAD TENDENCIES‘ from the Philadelphia, Pennsylvania-based indie rapper SoldYaSoul, is that true story about wanting to help someone so badly as you see their future in your eyes, which they are throwing away by doing things their body doesn’t need. This is that defining moment when you feel that someone you love is so close and happy but in other moments, it feels like they are ready to jet off quick like a Eurofighter Typhoon – as you wonder if they will truly relax around you – and feel ever-lasting freedom from the nasty negativity that has unfortunately consumed them.

Your welcoming arms may await those you care about, but there has to be that commitment from the other side for it to work.

This Welcome Mat is a Landmine EP by Five Hundred Bucks

Any fans of Social Distortion will want to turn their attention to the frenetic feat of Punk Rock ‘Spinal’ from Five Hundred Bucks’ aptly explosively titled latest release ‘This Welcome Mat is a Landmine EP’.

The turbulently high-octane hit delivers a relatable sense of indignation both lyrically and vocally, affirming with the listener that yes, it is okay for the fuzzy feels to be flowing when the massive chorus hits; it is possible to feel some semblance of euphoria while the world falls apart around us.

Philadelphia’s tenacious sons and their realism-soaked punky pop rock earworms are exactly what the airwaves in 2021. As they have plenty in the pipeline, you’ll want them on your radar, sooner rather than later.

Similar to the music of Flying Lotus, Beck, and Knxwledge, Dillon Holder is an up and coming lofi rapper and producer. Coming from just outside of Philadelphia in the USA, the young artist has spent over 10 years mastering his craft.

Yung 4reign has dropped latest piece Find My Way

Singer and songwriter Yung 4reign has released his latest single ‘Find My Way’ ft Tre Worth portraying an upbeat lively sound.

Pulling in that Rap and Hip-Hop style, telling a story through the melodic vocals and the fast pace Rap, mixing it up with added bits of him singing. The way he sings has this soft texture to it, it has this pure energy running through and the vocal ranges are insane as he keeps this steady flow through each element.

Not only can he sing well, but when he goes back and forth from that to the Rap, it still keeps it’s catchy and impressive sound with the fast pace verses and high-pitched gravelly vocals. When Tre Worth comes in the pace picks up speed and has that more deep tone to it.

Head on over to Spotify now to listen to Yung 4reign’s Find My Way.

Matthew W Charles releases Love What You Do Ft Andrew German

Artist Matthew W Charles has released his eight-track anthology ‘Love What You Do’, infusing the sound of Rock and Country intertwined.

Each track has its own uplifting energy pulsing through it, it’s a collection of songs that lift your spirits as you listen because of the amount of lively personality that flows through it. You have this mixture of two rather diverse genres, that sometimes may not always combine together in the best way, but this album proves just how superb it can really sound.

Using the harmonica to start off some pieces, to the strum on the electric guitar, the instrumentation reflects that Country style, but the way the vocals are approached gives off that Rock essence, they’re smooth but in places tending to have that more rough edge to them, having a rather loud tone to them, a really impressive album.

Listen to Matthew W Charles’s EP by heading on over to Spotify now.
