Trap and RnB Converge in YaBoyAMP’s Latest Single “HENNESSY”

Up and coming Alt RnB Hip Hop artist YaBoyAMP dropped their latest single “HENNESSY” on February 19th. Once the instrumental hooks grip you, you’ll be at the mercy of the immersive melodies in this unique convergence of Trap and RnB.

YaBoyAMP’s constantly evolving vocals switch from smooth and steady Trap bars to harmonically pitch-perfect RnB Pop vocals allowing HENNESSY to unfold as a dynamic and well-rounded hit.

The lyrics may be on the more salacious side, but that’s not to say that HENNESSY is without its romanticism. Before you reach the outro, you’ll get to appreciate the full extent of YaBoyAMP’s lyrical waxing skills. But it’s much more than just their ability to keep to perfect meter and rhyme on offer. Within the final verses, you’ll get a potent serving of undiluted soul which will stay with you for long after the track has faded to a close.

Cam O’Brian- Already Famous: An energetic Country Rap piece

If you want to delve into the world of Country Rap then this one is a must to check out. Cam O’Brian has released his new track ‘’Already Famous’’ and it’s one hell of a Country song.

When you think Country Rap it may sound a bit peculiar, but in fact it’s becoming a lot more popular, especially after Lil Nas X took everyone by surprise. This is definitely similar to Old Town Road for sure, but up and coming artist Cam O’Brian shows his listeners just how much of a hit Country Rap can be when it’s done right, whilst intertwining Hip-Hop, Trap and Pop.

Having that pure old western cowboy feeling by the use of the fast strums on the Ukulele. Cam tends to bounce back and forth with his voice, he can sound pure country and then sometimes he can sound really Pop when he hits the high notes, it’s pretty impressive.

Already Famous is a track you can’t help but want to listen to again and again, it’s so contagious and so fun to listen too.

Jam : Ali has dropped their latest EDM Hip Hop hit “Focus”

High-octane Hip Hop fans won’t want to miss out on the momentous standout single “Focus” from up and coming artist Jam : Ali.

We don’t often get to hear artists who can match the quick-fire lyrical pace of artists such as Eminem, Busta Rhymes and Twista. But when Focus reaches peak momentum, it’s impossible not to feel a surge of awe transpire as you drink in Jam : Ali’s ability to wax lyrical.

The progressive track winds down the tempo between the frantic bars allowing you to soak up the resonant and charismatic sentiment behind Focus; it’s an adrenalizing hit which demands repeat attention. With the production being as pioneering as it was polished, Jam : Ali is undoubtedly one to watch.

RXCH – Song Cry featuring BIG HILLI, FAM and BIG HOOD THA KING YH

For his latest track “Song Cry (Murder on My Mind)”, up and coming Alt Hip Hop artist RXCH teamed up with BIG HILLI, FAM and BIG HOOD THA KING YH to create a track which is as commanding as it is emotive.

Through a mix of contemporary RnB, New Wave Trap, and Hip Hop, RXCH was able to offer fiery energy alongside soul-deep sentiment. It’s definitely not every day we can say that.

While the vocal reverb felt slightly excessive in parts, Song Cry was still a solid track. It just felt slightly criminal to gloss over the emotion which was projected into the mix.

It’s easy to anticipate big things to come from RXCH, their sound isn’t just ahead of the curve, it’s created a brand-new trajectory in the evolution of RnB Hip Hop. I’d put them on your radar sooner rather than later.

MC! – HOW I REALLY FEEL: Infectiously Fresh Adrenalizing Hip Hop

US Alt Hip Hop artist MC! has dropped their most immersive track yet with “HOW I REALLY FEEL”. We don’t come across Rap earworms all too often, but with the not so subtle hooks and the adrenalizing vibe behind the mix, we’re sure you’ll find it as infectiously fresh as we did.

The volatile energy which feeds into the beats and the relentlessly paced Rap bars hook you in from the first verse. It comes as no surprise that HOW I REALLY FEEL is on the way to becoming a viral track after it was released in February 2020.

The grinding experimental EDM beats aren’t shy about bringing the bass. The stylistic instrumental storm may pull your mind away from the lyrics, but that’s all the more reason to give HOW I REALLY FEEL the repeat attention it deserves.

Josh Kab serves up striking soul in his Alt RnB Hip Hop single “If I Cry”

Soul may be the cornerstone of RnB, but there’s a strikingly potent serving of it in up and coming artist Josh Kab’s alternative album “Sad Boy Hours”.

In the Standout track “If I Cry”, Josh Kab has merged 90s RnB, New Wave Trap, and Old School Hip Hop to create a mix which offers unpredictable progressions. One thing which remains as a constant is the level of emotion projected into the mix.

Between the moody rap verses and striking RnB crooning, there’s a smorgasbord of sentiment which isn’t all too shy about resonating. Josh Kab went beyond the usual Sad Hip Hop style with If I Cry by creating an organic track which perceptibly came straight from the soul.

You can check out Josh Kab’s single If I Cry along with the rest of their album via YouTube.

Yung Furst is set to drop their most hard-hitting feat of Hip Hop to date with “In a Minute”

Up and coming Hip Hop artist Yung Furst is set to release their hardest hitting feat of Hip Hop to date. “In a Minute” moves away from the usual Sad Hip Hop archetypes and into the realms of ingenuity.

There’s a myriad of textures and tones to be found in the track giving the soundscape a fully-rounded humanistic feel. The light fragments of airy ethereal reverb-soaked optimism rise up from the stabbing minor notes.

The pensive prelude attempts to prepare you for an emotive feat of Hip Hop. Yet, nothing can quite prepare you for the emotive weight which may leave more sensitive souls suitably bruised.

You’ll have to wait a little longer before you can check out In a Minute for yourselves. But in the meantime, you can check out some of Yung Furst’s earlier releases via SoundCloud.
