With Denver's short history of hip hop talent, it's always dope to see someone truly reppin' the city to the fullest. Riaga has been proclaiming Denver as his own for a little while now and his latest project, the Denver Lanes EP, shows that he has some serious passion and skill to bring to the Mile High City.
Everyone should get ready for Mxlcxlm Z. The Denver based MC blesses the city this past weekend with a preview of his upcoming tape Reaping SZN and the event he put on was one of the most authentic I’ve ever been to. Taking place at the Syntax Physic Opera, the listening party immediately had that home grown vibe thanks to the funky yet sophisticated atmosphere in the venue and Mxlcxlm brought that feeling to life through performances from himself and a cast of other local musicians.
Bringing people together is a beautiful thing and The Conglomerates Showcase does a great job of helping introduce local talent to their city. The roster this time around was especially impressive and the good folks at RM3 (Rocky Mountain Music Management) seem to have found Denver's hip hop pulse.
Dropping music on a regular basis is no easy task but Vwillz has been showing he has some serious heat in his vault and he's been blessing us consistently with new music.
Consistency is an important aspect to being a hip hop artist these days thanks to the fast paced nature of streaming services and some artists simply can't keep up. Lil Seltrah doesn't have that problem as evidenced by him dropping four albums within the past year alone.
After we dropped our 50+ Best Denver Hip Hop Artists/Rappers list there were a plethora of new artists introducing themselves but very few caught our attention like Vwillz. His smooth R&B sound has provided some of Colorado's best music over the past year and his newest track Back Then is a perfect example of his catchy style.
The more I get in tune with the Denver hip hop scene, the more I realize just how dope it is. Ray Lyle is the latest artist to catch my attention and his new project ExtroVERT is a showcase of his skill and catchy sound.
