Lucki “Incoming” Video

By Emmanuel 

One of the hardest out

Lucki is one of the best young rappers out right now. The Chicago native has gone through a re-branding of drugs in the past year and this new perc and lean Lucki reminds me of a synthetic drug using Curren$y. I would characterize Lucki’s style now as one of the more lyrical iterations of mumble rap. As Lucki’s tone and delivery is soft and drugged out but very audible and clearly thought through. Peep the Whyloneworlf directed video for “Incoming” below.

Artist Feature: 03 Greedo

By Emmanuel 

Pain Into Passion

03-greedo

03 Greedo is one of the newest rising acts t come out of the west coast and his Cali spin on Future-esque melodies is a refreshing and unheard sound. Greedo hails from the hard streets of Watts and all of the struggles he experienced as a Grape Street Crip profusely bleed through in his music. In my opinion Greedo makes some of the most vulnerable street music in today’s landscape. In terms of content he paints pictures of the negative side of the street life similar to acts like Meek Mill or G Herbo, but sonically he uses many vocal effects to craft his Future like crooning over distinctly bouncy west coast production. The combo is fire. Get to know Greedo in his Nu Jumper interview below.

Standout tracks for me right now are the undeniable “Never Bend”, and “Run For Yo Life”. Peep these tracks and the rest of his catalog below.

Philly’s PNB Rock just dropped his follow up to January’s Going Through The Motions with Catch These Vibes. The album lives up to the title as it is chockfull of all different representations of current hip hop. One of the hardest joints on the album is the London On Da Track produced “London”. Listen to the banger below.

RetcH “2-Eleven”

By Emmanuel 

Retch is free

FTW

One of the best spitters in New Jersey Retchy P has returned home from his second stint in jail and today blesses his patently waiting fans with the hard hitting record “2-Eleven”. This song finds Retch digging into his mumble rap, ad-lib focused bag and as every Retch fan should know he can do pretty much any style of rap. Listen below.
