Shota J raises the temperature with their fiery rap track, ‘Tiempo’

Virginia-based hip hop artist Shota J has garnered plenty of hype with his latest bilingual rap track, ‘Tiempo’ which switches between Spanish and English and feeds both cultures in the sun-bleached beats which vibe with the same convictive soul as the likes of Nas and the Notorious B.I.G.

Whichever language their lyrical flex is wrapping around, you’re going to feel the energy that this fiery feat of hip hop contains. In a time when it’s hard to amass any amount of motivation or resilience, tracks such as Tiempo should be considered as playlist staples. Their energy is more infectious than COVID-19.

Tiempo is now available to stream via SoundCloud.

Nisa Pasha proves that passivity is out of trend with ‘Godfather’

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3f5PXJDDc60

Spanish guitars join and stinging trap beats in trailblazing hip hop artist, Nisa Pasha’s, latest single ‘Godfather’ which carries the theatrics of a telenovela while arresting you with the unapologetic attitude.

Lock into the lyrics, and you’ll find empowering mantras which will make you think twice about dealing with romantic frustration passively. We’ve seen enough plastic pop idols for a lifetime, it’s time artists as magnetically aspirational as Nisa Pasha shared the same platform. Just as stereotypes were smashed in the 1972 cult film, they were obliterated within Nisa Pasha’s feisty hit.

You can check out the official video to Godfather which dropped on December 3rd via YouTube.

Cultures collide in Gullypabs and Trizzac’s Drill track ‘Zone 2 in Spain’

‘Zone 2 in Spain’ is the chill-inducingly dominant Drill track by South East London artist, Gullypabs, and Spanish Drill trailblazer, Trizzac. Despite its very recent release, it’s well on its way to going viral.

There’s ferocity behind each venom-laced syllable as collaborative chemistry effervesces between the dual Rap bars. To create the perfect platform as cultures collide in this gritty yet sun-soaked hit which runs through with blissfully escapism-aiding exoticism, the melodic beats are minimalistic but serve to create a grippingly intense atmosphere which will hook you in from the first scathingly charismatic verse.

If the grind in this heated hit doesn’t you adrenalized, you can assume that you’re a little dead inside.

You can check out the official video which dropped on November 18th via YouTube.
