Will Tunink has released his upraising single, We Are More, ft RaJan Monroe and Jon Mero

For his latest single, We Are More, Will Tunink collaborated with Rajan Monroe and Jon Mero to create a soulfully effervescent feat of jazz hip hop that carries the same resolving faith-instilling propensities of Gospel. Even the impious can find penance in this cinematic track.

Every artist has a unique motivation for their music; for the Iowa-based artist, he is driven towards cultivating a safe, welcoming space for empowerment. With such a sincere MO, it comes as little surprise that his releases are so uplifting.

It’s tracks like We Are More that leave you standing a little taller, but more importantly, they leave you in awe of the artist’s ability to spin words into sequence with enough precision that you will feel your perspective shift.

We Are More is now available to stream and download on all major platforms via this link.

The415Fortune seeks to make his mark in the history of hip hop with his dynamic hit, Push N Shove.

Each single from The415Fortune is a gritty vignette of his life and an exposition of the streets that raised him; the West Coast-hailing artist mixes up the West Coast sound with a Southern Rap twist to create his dynamic signature sound that is garnering plenty of hype in 2021.

Any fans of Xzibit, Dre, Ja Rule and Tupac will appreciate the convictive grind in his latest single, Push N Shove, which delivers bass-drenched beats, Drill rap bars and unfuckwithable attitude. Beyond his domineering persona is an artist committed to sharing his story and healing from early chapters with his music. We can’t wait to see where his candid, refreshing sound takes him next.

The official video to Push N Shove that premiered on July 21st is available to stream on YouTube.

The Neverending Mixtape shows their teeth in JAWS!

There are plenty more than two chords in The Neverending Mixtape’s dark jungle hip hop hit JAWS! that features 724x, Wolfman Longarm, Stakes, ¡kylkenny! And Trip C.

The bass-drenched hit was created by strangers who met on the internet and formed a consistently expanding collective that now includes over 40 members. All of their rapid-fire aggressive trap bars were recorded in their home and personal studios before the beats were engineered and produced across the globe within the collective.

After building a loyal fan base, the collective ensured they had plenty more releases locked, loaded and ready to drop. If you pride yourself on having the freshest hip hop talent on your playlists, make room for The Neverending Mixtape.

CSC Papi

Cleveland, Ohio Pop, RnB and hip hop fusionist CSC Papi is set to drop his most evocative track to date with his latest single, Chauffer. The reverb-drenched atmospheric track puts emotion at the forefront, but the dak moody RnB track is all about the ensnaring hooks that pull you right into the soul of the mix.

His masterful vocal canter and commitment to creating synergy between instrumentals, vocals and lyrics, ensured that Chauffer hit hard and hit like no other. The radio-ready single deserves to go viral.

The prodigal of dark trap SORAthaMOON returns with his latest single, Damn, featuring Ivytheterrible

https://soundcloud.app.goo.gl/7c1bsm19NgigRFMD9

LA-born, San Antonio-based experimental artist SORAthaMOON has released his latest dark trap single, Damn, featuring Ivytheterrible, produced by sil; the genre-melding lo-fi track runs free from stylistic constraint. Discernibly, the artist doesn’t follow trends; he creates vibes and eases you into them with the rhythmic pull of his viscerally eerie instrumentals.

Despite the chilling tone, SORAthaMOON’s playful attitude ensured that the ensnaring release isn’t without a potent shot of charisma. The roots of old school hip hop pull through in Damn, but SORAthaMOON contorts them into his signature sound that we are sure will see him go far.

Did It For The Love: New York’s Natey G paints us his vision with the catchy ‘Hush Money’

Returning with his latest single after the super ‘Wake Up‘ from 2020, Natey G brings us a feel-good track for the ages with the blue-eyes, blonde-hair daydream single ‘Hush Money‘.

Multi-talented Connecticut-born, New York-based indie hip-hop artist, pianist, guitarist and keen fisherman Nathan Goldenberg aka Natey G, makes a tasty blend of meaningful music that has you feeling rejuvenated after a long slumber away from what you love.

At a very young age, he knew his passion for sound would lead to an artist career. With his father an avid trumpet player and older brother playing Cello, Natey G quickly showed interest in the realms of Jazz, Classical Music, and Rock. In following the musical footsteps of his family, Natey G himself pursued a variety of instruments including piano, drums, violin and guitar.” ~ Natey G

The vibe is alive with a motivated stance upwards, he knows what he wants and is only determined to head on the right journey for his soul. This breathtaking beat has your ears perked up and you feel like you can do anything – as his eyes move towards the girl from Bel Air – while you move your hungry body to this superbly-made single, with such a stylish ear-bending ability.

Hush Money‘ from the experienced New York-based rapper Natey G, shows us the way to being truly happy in this rather strange world full of undesirable paths. He performs with a real confident flow and the chorus here is absolutely bounce-filled with such a likable style, which has you feeling so much better after the rough recent seas. This is one of those songs to wake up to, as this flows wonderfully into your mind and gets you motivated. Just like great music does.

Stream this new single on Spotify and see more on the IG music page.

Blame Me: Steaming London rapper Synsy heats up the airwaves with anime visuals for ‘MAYDAY!’ (prod. Jon Cass)

Representing trashgang and powering in with a highly unique sound that shows much intent, Synsy turns the lights to red with the emotion-filled new single which thunderously hits the speakers in the sweet spot called ‘MAYDAY!(prod. Jon Cass).

Synsy is a creative London, England-based indie rapper. With anime from Katsugeki Touken Tanbu, this is a heavy track that morphs together to show us his reckless thoughts, which are totally understandable in this odd world.

Defined by the underground, Synsy seamlessly combines elements from the darkest sub-genres of hip hop, punk and drum n bass creating an industrial wasteland of pure aggression.” ~ Synsy

With a full-paced vocal armory at his disposal which shreds through like a sharp sword on fragile butter, this is a mic-destroying track that shows us what its like to live in modern day London as we speak. The beat is more-than-thumping and there are no breaks to have a spot of tea in between – as we are tumbled into a tremendously vein-popping track – which has you looking around rather anxiously and also a tad suspiciously.

MAYDAY!(prod. Jon Cass) from the riveting London, England-based indie drum n bass/rap-fueled act Synsy, shows us an artistically talented artist who sends us a real message of velocity here. This is the story of having one of those days you would rather forget, as you are crashing hard and feeling like some undesirable people are out to get you. The bass is full of heat-stacked pace and the video is rather cleverly made, as we are thrown into a world which will shock your nerves back into action rather quickly.

See the music video on YouTube and find out more about his underground life via the IG music channel.

Solo Star delivers deity-level hip hop in his single, ‘American God’

Solo Star

Ahead of the release of his highly anticipated 4-track EP, ‘The Ballad of Solo Star’, the up and coming artist has given us a taste of what’s to come by giving us a sneak peek of the lead track, American God.

Under the influence of Nas, Andre 3000, J.Cole, 2Pac and Jay-Z, Solo Star carries the same charismatic vocal magnetism. Instrumentally, he’s ascended to his own level and plateaued above most breaking artists. You can’t help getting hooked into the arrestingly rhythmic grooves in American God.

If you pride yourself on having the hottest names in hip hop on your playlists, you will want to make room for Solo Star.

Check out him out on SoundCloud and his website.

Malcolm Jamal – Blacking Out featuring AGoodman

Malcolm Jamal

Old School hip hop fans will get a potent nostalgia hit from Malcolm Jamal’s latest single, Blacking Out, featuring AGoodman. The beats and rap style may throw back to the glory days of East Coast hip hop, but the lyricism encapsulates the anxiety and anger inspired by our current societal disparity.

It’s tracks like Blacking Out that keep injustice fresh in our minds; ignorance isn’t bliss, but more than that, it’s a visceral invitation to think big and act even bigger. The energy is infectious, and the earworm propensities are relentless.

Check out Malcolm Jamal’s latest single on apple music.

Trevour Amunga artfully attacks hip hop in his downtempo debut single, Drama.

Kenya-born, LA-based songwriter and rap artist Trevour Amunga has released his debut single, Drama; he describes his sound as a charming blend of poetry and authenticity, which articulately encapsulates the vibe of the sensual spoken-word lyricism  along with the seductively ambient slow grooves of the downtempo release.

It was a short and sweet introduction to Trevour Amunga, but we’re already stoked to hear more of his artful approach to hip hop. His experimental production style and the range of his mesmerising vocal timbre makes his debut single one of the most original hip hop debuts of 2021.

Drama is now available to stream on Spotify.
