Why we like Rod McCoy:
As Rod McCoy states at the start of "99.5," he's trying to bring hip-hop back, and with the old school vibes he delivers, it sounds like he is. The rapper on the rise has a penchant for low-key, smooth beats, which are just fine with us. He goes in over them with what he calls the "coldest flow in town."
For music lovers ( those who favor the genre of Hip Hop especially), the train-wreck “music” has become is truly devastating. It seems that music has lost its true meaning since most of today’s Hip-Hop icons do it for the love of money rather than the love of the craft. However, there is always hope for the re-birth of Hip-Hop when you discover the creative genius of artists like Rod McCoy.

Why we like Audible Hustle:
The latest from Audible Hustle finds the crew spitting reflective raps over a jazzy and vaguely boom-bap instrumental. The combination is smooth and reminiscent of the Pro Era sound, with the production drawing from a similar sample used on Joey Bada$$ and Chuck Strangers' "Fromdatomb$." This is far from a negative comparison to make, and each member distinguishes themselves in a different and engaging way.
AHE is an indie hip hop collective initially formed by military members (now veterans) in 2010 in Fort Walton Beach, Florida. Hailing from various parts of America with different yet complimentary flows, this is definitely one of the illest collectives you probably haven't heard of!

Why we like bigOmuziq:
BigOmuziq definitely has unique delivery, flow and style, and that's one of the reasons we like him. Besides for that though, his content is also quite unique. Listen to his Heatseeker-submitted "psycheO" to see what we mean, and go on to listen to "gOne" if you're not yet convinced. BigO's single "psycheO" really describes the feeling he gives the listener-- but in the best way possible.
