VCATION – Whiskey & Cola (Submission)
If you partied like I did all week, you’d know exactly why this song is relative. ‘Whiskey & Cola’ didn’t hit my cup, but the alcoholic beverages were poured left and right. All hail the Big Game Week in Atlanta! If you didn’t get around to having some fun all weekend, here’s your fun in song form.
Dave Byrd – Lotto featuring Greg Cypher (Submission)
Putting on for Seattle, Washington, Dave Byrd teams up with fellow emcee, Greg Cypher. The super chill track, not only features Byrd singing on its hook, it finds the rappers talking about being saucy, real, rich people playing the lottery, and more. Watch the Chase Fade directed music video below.
Clear Soul Forces – Hit Me Now (Submission)
The Detroit-native group isn’t necessarily “new”, but they haven’t quite risen to the top of the game since their conception in the late ’00s. Let’s change that as Detroit happens to have some of the best emcees on this planet. Stream Clear Soul Force’s brand new track, which features Ol’ Dirty Bastard’s classic record ‘Shimmy Shimmy Ya’ below. It is a leak from their forthcoming album ‘Still’. It comes out February 22.
WAVEDASH – Whiplash (Submission)
I’d advise you to let the beat to build to wholeheartedly appreciate ‘Whiplash’. The WAVEDASH track features Science Fiction sounds, a telephone call from a show I am not familiar with, and Nas vocals from the ‘Made You Look’ track. Play the fun Dubstep record below.
Final Stair – End of Love (Submission)
When you go through the kinds of things I go through, it is a delight to hear words to a song that seems to give direction and hope to personal perils. Fighting for someone, who will fight for you is how I think we’d all like to be, but it isn’t always the case. We can’t get what we want every day, and that’s fine. I guess.
What is the end of love? Perhaps, it is when the love, respect and admiration die.
TOLEDO – Qué Pasa?
If you’re wondering, the record is about Dan and his father’s relationship. It is a letter that asks the hard questions about let down and then some. We all know that a boy’s relationship with his father is everything. We wonder how Dan and his father are now. We want to know what was his replies to the questions. Be on the lookout for their forthcoming debut album entitled, ‘Hot Stuff’, which is set to come out next month.
Tim Atlas – Dizzy (Submission)
Who knew that being dizzy could sound this good? The sensation tends to come over me whenever someone feels the need to repeat the same things. I don’t know if I have a pet peeve smaller than that. Without further ado, hear the Los Angeles-based singer Tim Atlas’ new track below.
Link Lewis – Am I In (Submission)
It’s about attraction and curiosity, that difficult decision – deciding whether to cross the line of friendship to see if a deeper connection exists, says Link Lewis.
As soon as you turn on the record, it feels as if you’re in a time machine–travelling back to the nineties where the new age of R&B had emerged then brought forth the talents of artists who influence him like Lauryn Hill and D’Angelo. The British seem to have this thing R&B/Soul together. Check out the latest track by Link Lewis below.
Freedom Fry – The Seasons (Submission)
Get through all of the seasons; Win a prize, maybe? Who knows? We all change like the seasons, so that’s not the issue. I think it’s more about when people change for the worst, and it is no longer advantageous for the person who didn’t evolve. Hey, I could be wrong. Listen to the song and think about it. If your thoughts differ, let me know.
Vic August – Wire Tap (Submission)
It’s hard to believe that Vic August isn’t a Cactus Jack Records artist along with Don Toliver. Having the clarity in his vocals, it should take no time before he reaches far and wide. He is just seventeen-years-old and recorded his first song three years ago, so I imagine he will only get better with time. ‘Wire Tap’ sounds the music that plays on mainstream radio stations in North America now.
