Nile Ross- The Crew
Nile Ross is a rising rapper who we spotted during one of our Heatseekers competition, and he’s only been getting better since he made it to the Final Four. Grabbing inspiration from DJ Mustard, Nile created a catchy beat for a feel good record about his movement, and on top of handling the production, Ross also delivers a hook that’s on-point. It will probably make you consider fucking with his crew. Listen above.
King Chip- Go ‘Head
As Chip prepares us for a new album CleveLAfornia, he’s been dropping some loose tracks to get his name circulating again. The latest was “Go ‘Head” produced by his go-to Big Duke. As usual, Duke comes through with a quick-paced key-driven beat as Chip raps, encouraging a lady to go ‘head. Let’s hope there is more King Chip x Big Duke on the forthcoming debut album.
Da$h- Intoxicated Scarfaces Feat. Remy Banks
Da$h and Remy Banks receive some dark and gritty production from Mordecai Beats for “Intoxicated Scarfaces” which was released as the B-side of another track “On The Real.” With various drug-themed audio samples, including one from Breaking Bad, the two rappers give us some trippy yet luxurious rhymes about their “futuristic Don livin’.”
Termanology- Set It Off Feat. Ransom
Termanology seems to never take a break. The dude just released his album G.O.Y.A. and is back at it with a follow-up EP Mas Goya. The first look from the project features scratches from a frequent collaborator, Statik Selektah, and a verse from Ransom. Term stunts a bit on us, bragging about his price per feature.
Tree- Like Whoa
Tree announced this past week that he'll be releasing a new self-titled EP sponsored by Scion A/V, and we also got the first leak. Sometimes you just got to say "Like Whoa" and Tree lists all those possible occasions for you, whether small or big. Plenty of hi-hats and snyths accompany the production, which was possibly handled by Tree as well. Look out for THE @MCTREEG EP.
