There is so much in a name. Often serving as an introduction to something greater, a name is the facade to the world; the first thing people see and recognize, make judgements on and contemplate about. Denver's WAY has taken that knowledge to heart and deliberately chosen to switch things up, changing from his birth... Continue Reading →
Vwillz has been on our radar for a little bit at this point and he has stayed remarkably consistent since we discovered him. His latest track, new phone freestyle, is short but undeniably dope as he comes through with soft yet catchy vocals over a catchy beat from Jlaker. Sometimes songs under two minutes are my favorite just because of how many times they make me hit replay. Listen to new phone freestyle below and be on the lookout for more from Vwillz.
Talent can be found all across the country and Boston's Reedus 3M shows that Bean Town has some hidden heat. His latest track, Tethered features some excellent production that starts off slow but builds into a catchy, head boppin' vibe. Reedus takes advantage of the solid beat with some equally impressive flows and verses. Listen to Tethered below and get in tune with this up and coming Boston rapper.
Another day, another dope Denver artist to be discovered. Paridox, an 18 year old from Aurora, is one of those artists that just seems to have it. His latest track Enemy shows that talent with catchy vocals, a smooth beat, and a personal, introspective vibe that gives the song an authentic feel to it.
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.
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.
