Boogie- Do It Like We
Boogie is definitely someone to keep eye on. The Compton native already came correct on his unique track “Bitter Raps”, in which he bitterly listed all the things he despises. On the second release we’ve heard from him, he raps about a special lady while asking, “who can do it like you?” It’s his very own way of serenading her, over a chilled out, smoke-worthy beat.
P. Reign- Ill Life Pt. 2
P. Reign is on a slow come-up from his Toronto roots, although his affiliation with Drake doesn’t hurt. The Reps Up MC finally released new music last Saturday, “Ill Life Pt. 2”; we hadn’t heard from him since the fan-favorite A$AP Rocky-featured cut “We Them Niggas.” “Ill Life Pt. 2” has more of an r’n’b vibe production-wise, while P. Reign spits in a sort of off the cuff manner, as though he’s just spilling out all the thoughts that happen to be on his mind. It’s pretty heavy, with Pro Logic’s production bringing it all together.
Alex Wiley- Own Man feat. Mick Jenkins
Alex Wiley was featured on the site this past week with our 10 Chicago Players list, however here we’d like to highlight one particular track from the talented MC which arrived on Monday. The new single features fellow Chi-town spitter Mick Jenkins, and with a subdued sample of male vocals, Wiley spits some wisdom about being your own person, whatever that might mean to you. It’s definitely got us anticipating the album it’ll live on, Village Party.
Vic Mensa- Feel That
Vic gets a little bit wild on this latest release. “Feel That” is pretty short and repetitive, not your typical Vic release, but it’s still worthy of plays. It’s got the appropriate turn-up sound to it, as Vic repeats everything he’s feeling at the moment. We have to give props to Smoko Ono for a beat we’re definitely feeling.
K Camp- Oh No
K Camp seems to be on the precipice of something big. The Atlanta native has definitely locked down his own city with tracks like “Money Baby” and “Cut Her Off”, and the more he releases, the more word spreads. His latest drop, a no-fucks-given anthem called “Oh No” has production from TM88 and yet another catchy hook from the rapper. Plus there are few jokes lines, such as, “Boy I’m so bout it / they ask who the hottest / I looked in the mirror and almost forgot it / Psych, I didn’t / Boy I’m so cold I might need some mittens…”
HNHH's "Underrated Audio" puts you on not-too-mainstream music you might have missed from the past week.
Underrated Audio aims to provide you with some dope looks from the last seven days, that flew under most peoples' radars. While they may have received front-page placement on HNHH, they didn't get as many views as they deserve, so we shine a little more light on them right here.
This week we have a range of coasts covered, from the Midwest, to the West Coast, to the East Coast, to the South; you'll find a rapper representing each on this list.
