Why we like DatKid Smoove:

DatKid Smoove's name is fairly indicative of his music. The Bay Area rapper's style is far from the upbeat style the region is renouned for, relying more on laid-back production and flows for his sound. It makes for a welcome antidote to the current fixation on "turning up".


Artist Bio:

Music. It was always about making a difference. Music that you can feel , music from emotion... for strength and during your weakness, DatKid Smoove, a 20 year old UNLV college student (Las Vegas) from the Bay Area California, has been connecting the feeling of "New Rap WIth That Old School Flow" giving inspiration, and acknowledging belief of change. His team may not know your pain, and nor you theirs , however... By giving their "Heart And Soul" (DatKid Smoove's lastest Mixtape) they sure can attempt to break the boundaries. Hard2Reach is the youngest team in it, inspiring is their passion, while the art of music, remains everything . Reach .


Listen to the track that landed them on Heatseekers- "All True"

Why we like Pillitteri:

Pillitteri adds a fun-loving, hazy tone to TDE's formula (even shouting out the group on "Altitude"). Providing tight flows and melodies, while still keeping the vibe light and fun, only taking himself as seriously as he needs to.


Artist Bio: 18 from Louisville, Ky. Full time college student, part time restaurant bus-boy, and full time dream chaser

Why we like Royalty And Loyalty:  

Royalty And Loyalty is bringing fresh new aggression out of Ohio. Backed by heavy synth-based production, his hunger for the sport is clear. Although vocally reminiscent of Brooklyn's Flatbush Zombies, he's clearly in his own lane. Keep and eye on this one. 


Artist Bio: 

Royalty And Loyalty, aka RAL, is a 22-year-old emcee from Massillon, Ohio. He's here to take it all over, believing nothing else is worth it.

Why we like Sommy Lovell: 

The multitalented Sommy Lovell is one of the more impressive Heatseekers we've heard in a minute. He clearly has a natural gift for production, and his lyricism is worldly and intelligent, reminiscent of Lupe Fiasco. We're looking forward to what this young lord has in store.


Artist Bio: 

Raised and based in Staten Island, New York, Sommy Lovell is a 19-year-old Independent rapper, producer, songwriter and engineer. A composer of Hip-Hop/Rap and R&B for years, and writing for himself for nearly a decade, Lovell has also been songwriting, producing beats and engineering for other artists in the New York area. All of his material is traditionally self-produced, mixed, and mastered by him, showcasing his ability to do it all. Although he's been dishing out a slew of solo efforts one by one, Lovell is gearing up for what shall be an eventful Fall of 2013.
