Check out "317," one of this weekend's Heatseekers from Jimmy.


Jimmy Graves puts on for his hometown of Indianapolis, Indiana on "317," named for the city's area code.

Accompanied by slow dripping production, the track bears a lot of influence from the carefully crafted aesthetic of Drake's personal curator of sounds, Noah "40" Shebib. His work has filtered into many different corners of hip-hop, but Jimmy's take on the sound manages to stay unique due to his slick rapping.

Name dropping Kendrick's good kid, m.A.A.d city, Wale's The Gifted and J. Cole's Born Sinner within the same breath, Jimmy lets us know who his idols are, and that he's not the type of rapper who needs to turn up on every track.

Quotable Lyrics:

Everybody speakin' on your name
good kid, m.A.A.d city, nothing was the same
Born sinner, the gifted, even hall of fame
All these niggas had you
