Iamsu and Sage The Gemini have really taken things to the next level this past year, as they grow their fanbase outside of the West Coast and bring that signature Bay Area sound to houses all over the country. “The Weather” is yet another perfect example of just that, which appeared on an exclusive Camo EP dropped in conjunction with the HBK’s capsule collection for Pink Dolphin.
Underrated Audio: February 15- February 21
Onyx are ready for their comeback. In recent months they released the hard-hitting and extra grimy WAKEDAFUCUP (which actually appeared on UA last week), the title track from their joint effort with producer Snowgoons, and this past week they delivered another dope record off the project, this time a collaboration. Who else would they collaborate with other than hard NY spitters like A$AP Ferg and Sean Price? Gritty x gritty. With their non-chalant attitude they proclaim “We don’t fuckin’ care!” through out the record, while piano riffs play in the background.
Lil Herb- On The Corner Feat. Lil Durk & KD Young Cocky
Lil Herb made his debut last week with the Chiraq-influencedWelcome To Fazoland. The project was the perfect introduction to the buzzing rapper and Lil Bibby affiliate, although some tracks stood out more than others, including “On The Corner.” With Durk and KD Young Cocky by his side, G Herbo tells tales of the corner, and all the things you may come across on it, interspersed with an auto-tuned hook. They sell weed from California on the corner. You get the idea.
Illangelo- What The Fuss Feat. Rochelle Jordan
Illangelo is the producer behind The Weeknd’s highly-curated r’n’b sound, popularized by his mixtapes like House Of Balloons, Thursday and Echoes Of Silence. While he remains a behind-the-scenes type of guy for the most part, he decided to unleash some old demos this past week and as well as something brand new—this Rochelle Jordan-featured single. The mellow record is short but sweet, thanks to Rochelle’s vocals and dark, somewhat synth-y production, reminiscent of something The Weeknd would hop on, for sure, but still fresh in its own right.
HNHH's "Underrated Audio" puts you on not-too-mainstream music you might have missed from the past week.
