Big Baby is really putting on for Tampa, Florida and it looks like he won't be stopping anytime soon. "Check" featuring the enigma, Pollári, is a vibrant look for both of these artists. Big Baby is not afraid to rap over these high-pitched, melodic instrumentals. Plus this one is produced by PoloBoyShawty, a true originator of this current, popular sound. Checks is some heat from Florida, enjoy the sauce.
The Xanarchy is responsible for a breakout with "40 Mil Flow". Cannon really makes this beat his own and might have just dropped off his best lyrical song yet. It's not like this is some backpack verse by any means, it's still that drugged-out vibe but sped up. DJ Fu provided an eerie sample with clean drums to get Cannon's fans in a mood that they fiend for. 40 Mil Flow will light the rest of the year up.
Big James has just released a masterful, soul-filled track called "Aquarium". Sean Starks is responsible for the instrumentation and he snaps yet again. James seems like he is in his zone this year. His confidence is at a higher level and his delivery meshes well with the beat. This one is some fire from Columbus, but really would we expect anything else?
NanaBCool makes a connection between his hometown of Columbus, Ohio and Brooklyn on the wonderous 2amCruise EP. He tackles remembrance, coming of age and infatuation with a fusion of electronic and soul. With a celestial sound upon gentle vocals, NanaBCool is an artist that frequent alternative R&B listeners can vibe to. Get in sync with NanaBCool below.
Saba brightens up his spirit on the angelic "There You Go". He spreads his honest, testimonal message, uplifting his Chicago block. Following the release of his critically-acclaimed album 2016 Bucket List Project, fans can anticipate more music from Saba before the year's end. Move heaven and earth with Saba below.
Minneapolis-based Drelli makes it clear that he has "too many options" on the playful "if your texts GREEN ... we cant be SEEN". Since the top of the year, Drelli has gained momentum as a So Cold Records artist, under the wings of Allan Kingdom, whose authenticity has popularized Minneapolis rap. Both Drelli and Kingdom have joined forces with Finding Novyon on "White T" and the "Bonita Applebum"-sampled "Don't Matter". As Drelli continues to push new music, he'll continue to be in a league of his own. Flex on Android users with Drelli below.
On the heels of his single releases for "Bullseye" featuring Correy Parks and "White Moon", Sarob. embraces a new heartfelt sound on Seeing in the Dark. As Sarob. stays dedicated upon orchestral production on "Crystal Clear", the song also includes an energetic feature by ScienZe. Throughout the EP, Sarob. makes room for relaxing instumentation, whether tinged with a piano loop ("Red Sun", "White Moon") or being accented by trumpet ("24 Hrs"). Sarob. presents a more refined sound, on Seeing in the Dark securing his place in music.
MSFTS member Ian Frequency brings the bounce in the video for "Energy" with a cameo from MSFTS creator Jaden Smith, who will be appearing at Camp Flog Gnaw in late October. In the visual, Frequency flexes at a skate park alongside Jaden, giving a nod to "Magnolia" by Playboi Carti while Jaden flaunts an abundance of cash. The video rewinds towards the end, but Frequency is far from going backward. We're sure to hear more from Ian Frequency as his notoriety builds. Get revitalized by his "Energy" below.
