Young Houston native Kirko Bangz is currently working on the fifth instalment in his Progression mixtape series, after giving us Progression 4 in March. Progression 4 consisted of freestyles, but it's looking like Progression 5 will be more original music from the singer-rapper.
Dusty McFly returns today to drop his new mixtape Evergreen. Featuring guest appearances from Peej, Sino, Icewear Vezzo, Scotty ATL, Louis Gold, Jon Connor, Kirko Bangz, Maejor Ali and Kap G, the tape is comprised of 15 new tracks.
At just 14 years old, Young Marqus recently became the youngest artist to ever perform at the BET Hip Hop Awards, and now he's ready to step out with his first mixtape. The C.L.A.E. (which stands for "Creating Legacy All Day Every Day") is hosted by DJ Mustard, and features Mecole, Kirko Bangz, YG, James Faun
Young Marqus may be relatively new to the game, but he already has a better rolodex of collaborators than most veterans. After pairing up with Wale and YG, respectively, on two previous tracks, the Houston native links up with fellow Mo City resident Kirko Bangz on his latest, entitled "She Got It."
Texas native Essay Potna comes through with two fellow Texas-bred artists, Kirko Bangz and Denovo for his new single "Save Me." Given that line-up, it's probably unexpected the record stays true to their Southern roots with smooth synths moving slowly.
Kirko Bangz has us anticipating his debut album, Bigger Than Me, but while we wait on it he's keeping us fed with cuts like this one. The slow burner "I Ain't Gotta Lie" has production from Soundmob, and as per usual Kirko provides his own mix of rapping and singing.
