Rooftop J – We Going Up: Magnetically Connectable Smooth Hip Hop

Inspirational Hip Hop never gets old. As long as apathy still lingers in our society, we’ll need artists such as Rooftop J to grace the airwaves with high-vibe tracks such as “We Going Up”.

With the steady downtempo beats, a sprinkling of Jazz tones and the atmospheric depth of We Going Up, you’ll easily find the groove in the mix and be pulled along as you hang off Rooftop J’s every word. Their Rap bars parallel the mellifluous feel of the beats in the track which is bound to be of interest to fans of Mac Miller, Kanye, Drake, and Kendrick Lamar.

Ever since Rooftop J made their debut in 2018, they haven’t been short of acclaim, and it’s more than easy to see why. Their magnetically connectable vibe is inimitable.

The Incredible T – FTC 190 Song: Old School Immersive Hip Hop  

The Incredible T’s track “FTC 190 Song” isn’t just a Hip Hop mix which is easy to slip into. It’s one that you melt into thanks to the US-based artist’s tendency to go right back to the old school with their sound.

Any fans of Jay Z, Kendrick Lamar, and J. Cole are sure to appreciate the warmth of the nostalgically Jazz-infused tonally warm track. With The Incredible T’s effortlessly smooth lyrical delivery, it’s all too easy to get hooked into the lyrical narrative which finds perfect synergy with the fluid polished beats.

Not all urban artists put their soul on show in their tracks. But you’ll find plenty of soul in all of The Incredible T’s releases. We hope to hear plenty more from them in 2020.

Hip Hop Artist King Omni Has Dropped His Most Dynamic Hit to Date with “ez”

Breaking Hip Hop artist King Omni dropped their fieriest hit to date with “ez”. The dynamic hit puts organic vibrant tones alongside deep reverberant bass to give King Omni the perfect platform to lay down his rap bars which seem to be constructed through pure wit. It may offer slightly more ambience than your average high-vibe Hip Hop track, but if authenticity is what you look for in Hip Hop, prepare to strike gold.

If you’re still under the impression that you still need to listen to the likes of Drake and Kendrick Lamar to hear a contemporary polished urban banger, let King Omni prove you wrong with the consistently evolutionary mix. From high-fire rap deliveries, to smooth harmonic crooning, ez offers it all in an accessibly seamless neat package.

You can check out the official music video to King Omni’s latest single ez for yourselves via YouTube.
