A.B.$. – NII | @WillieDThaKang @RealKingSupreme

2018 sure has been a strong year for Mississippi-based MC Willie D. Tha Kang. It seems as though he’s been right there every time with a new jam when things start to feel a bit mundane. From G.P., to “Weigh It Is” and every other release Willie D. makes it hard to forget about him and his knack for laid-back flows.

Today is no different as he keeps his momentum going with “N II”. With summer winding down this one should do a good job of keeping the parties to close out the season going strong. A piece of bouncing production lays the foundation as Willie falls into it’s pockets perfectly on the infectious hook and witty verses. Houston’s own King $upreme joins him on the track, forming the duo of A.B.$. (All Bout Stacks).

This is King $upreme’s first time back on the scene since the release of 2016’s power moves EP, making it a comeback of sorts for the Texan. With this collaborative effort the duo look to pick back up right where they left off. Their chemistry is apparent on first listen, as the longtime friend’s show styles on the record that mesh effortlessly. If you’re looking for something that’ll get your head nodding this is the one for you. Stream “N II” below now.

Judson Wright – I Ran

As one of Mississippi’s fastest rising singers Judson Wright has impressed with strong releases since bursting onto the scene as a soloist earlier in 2018. His unique blend of genres shines brightly with everything he touches and his new single “I Ran” is another testament to this versatility. This go around he delves deeply into his feelings on “I Ran”.

“I Ran” is a song from a place of discontent. The singer is fed up and walking out of a relationship. Judson embodies the emotions of the character through melodies reminiscent of the 808s-MBDTF Kanye. His fillers harken to the mmmyeahs of Kid Cudi. Unlike the vocal work, the music is less genre-specific. The guitar is reflective of Zenyatta Mondatta era Police riffs. The seamless atmosphere of the track is credited to the years of experience Judson has in the production of his own sound. I Ran is best to listen to in your car at night.

The somber single that is “I Ran” marks the third release from Judson Wright following “Palm Trees” and “Original”. It can be found on all streaming services now.

IRAI Ouree – Animal/Wake N Bake

Hailing from Baton Rouge, Louisiana is IRAI Ouree and his eccentric sound. The area he calls home has seen several artists see mainstream popularity as of late but it’s safe to say he separates himself from that typical sonic landscape there. In preparation for his upcoming project “Safari”, IRAI Ouree has now released two singles in promotion of what to expect. Both tracks do a great job at showcasing the versatility he possesses.

The first is “Animal”, which is more akin to R&B than rap with it’s sensual tone. On it he describes how he can be a “beast” in ways that his muse may not be aware of yet. The second flips the switch to a different style with “Wake N Bake”. Here he takes flexes his skill as an MC while crafting an ode to one of his favorite vices. More impressively he still manages to put some introspective bars into the record, making it one that is both catchy and carries a message.

Check out both of the singles, which are produced by Gib$ now. Be sure to keep your eyes open for IRAI Ouree’s “Safari” project in the near future as well.

Judson Wright – Palm Trees | @JudsonMusic

Mississippi’s Judson Wright is still very young in his career as a solo musician, but sometimes youth means very little in comparison to quality. This is very much the case for Judson with his new single “Palm Trees”. You would be hard pressed to find a comparable sound, as the musician’s knack for genre-bending sounds shines brightly. An infectious hooks, meaningful lyrics and self-production drive the single.

Within the message of Palm Trees is an expression of a man at his breaking point. Judson Wright both raps and sings, full of anxious excitement, about denying dissatisfaction and breaking through depression to pursue his full potential. It’s seldom that you will find a song that balances both being extremely catchy and carrying such a message of positivity that people need to hear. This is just the second release from Judson Wright, with “Original” dropping prior to it. Be sure to check it out and let us know your thoughts.
