Intellect is one of the first we are getting the chance to write about and his project Out Of Left Field comes in strong with some old school, lyrical vibes that bring back that classic hip hop sound.
The 303's hip hop scene is becoming more robust by the day, and NTG Sound is the latest artist to make his presence felt in the city. His new tape Like Never Before is a solid example of his skills, especially the title track and Pay The Price, both of which showcase NTG's talent.
The white floors glistened as clearly affluent guests wandered from the entrance of the hotel up to their rooms. Before even meeting him, one thing was clear; Q Da Fool has reached another level. While only 20 years old, the DMV artist already has accomplishments under his belt that many vets in the game have yet to achieve. From signing to Roc Nation to performing on a nationwide tour with Shoreline Mafia, Q has been making a name for himself thanks to his raw and real musical style and aesthetic.
If there’s one thing the city of Denver isn’t short of, and that’s musical geniuses. Day after day, new artists pop up on our radar and you best believe Granola caught our attention. With an infectious melody that keeps you moving, and the wavy wordplay that brings you back to those late summer nights riding around town, Granola is someone to watch closely in 2019.
The amount of dope, undiscovered hip hop artists in Denver is getting ridiculous. Nahkeem and Forty $even are the most recent artists to catch our attention and their video for Leanin is about as dope as it gets. From the downtempo production to the impressive flows, this track shows that there is a plethora of talent in the Mile High City. The visual from Samuel Finley is just as solid as the song and fits the energy well. We'll be sure to keep an ear out for more from both Nahkeem and Forty $even and we hope you do too.
Melodic hip hop has become one of the most prominent forms of music in the past few years and there's no one doing it in Denver quite like Slouch. From catchy hooks to smooth, polished production, Slouch's sound has all the necessary ingredients to become something big, but his growth isn't complete yet. While he has already transformed his sound once (he was formerly known as P. Rose), the Mile High MC has his mind set on putting the finishes touches on his musical aesthetic in a variety of ways. Even though he may feel he has a ways to go still, the progression he has shown has been impressive already and is proof that he has the vision and work ethic it takes to reach the goals he's set for himself. The combination of these intangibles and the chemistry he has with producer slackbeatz make it feel like anything is possible for Slouch and his future is looking as bright as anyone's in the city.
Expansion and growth are integral aspects of Denver culture at the moment, and they have created a mindset that has helped grow the burgeoning hip hop scene in the Mile High City. One of the most prominent members of this freshly formed community is Ramond, a Denver native who has seen the city bend and morph into what it is today. While some people have found uncomfortability in the rapid growth, Ramond has embraced the change and is looking to bring that frontier mindset with him as he expands his sound and audience.
With Denver's hip hop scene progressing at a torrid pace, it can be difficult to know who to pay attention to and who is going to stick around for the long haul. RAMOND is definitely one of those artists. His new tape SEEDS is a perfect example of his abilities which include excellent wordplay, strong lyricism, and poignant topics. Full of personal and introspective themes, SEEDS provides a look into the mind of RAMOND and allows listeners to feel his joys, pains, and everything in between. The album deals with insecurities and successes with honesty, showing a depth of emotions that give a detailed look into RAMOND's journey and future goals.
