Recently rapper Big40 dropped his single “Motivation” to critical acclaim in the streets of Cleveland and now the rapper drops the follow up track “Ride 4 Me” which is also the title track to his album, dropping soon on available streaming platforms and including Pt.1 & Pt.2.
Despite the fact that “40” is in high school, this Midwest upstart was forced to grow up quickly after both his mother and father passed away tragically. Their loss inspired Big40 to pursue his career in Hip-Hop and has since become an artist to watch on the Cleveland scene.
“It started off as a freestyle game type of thing with my friends at school when I was younger. Then I started going home making actual songs, finding actual beats off YouTube. It took a minute for me to find my own sound, discover myself and take the music route serious.Once that happened I fell in love with it and now going harder than I ever did,” Big40 explained.
With an uncanny focus in the studio, Big40 doesn’t waste any time when he gets in the booth.
“I waste no time when it comes to making studio sessions to get songs done for projects. But it’s a whole different feeling when you step inside the booth and get into your own zone. There is really no process for me going in the booth really. I pull up and go hard as possible. I definitely love working on project after project, it’s like chapters of my life I put out to the public. Those who consume it we gone rock out, those who don’t, they eventually will,” a confident Big40 said.
With a big high school tour coming up around Cleveland and with Big40doing things for the kids to build a partnership with schools, there’s no telling how far Big40 can go with the youth behind him.
Motivation is the focus for Big40 going forward as he drops the 103Films directed video.
“My guy 103Films from Cleveland shot the video for us. It was my 2nd time shooting with him and the first time made me call him back. The 2nd time because his work was dope,” Big40 added.
The Militia is coming, but this warfare is being fought with words instead of weapons. Lesbian Legend, also known as Schadre Dent, is an artist, poet, and designer, that fuses music and fashion to battle it out in this mundane industry. As a visionary, Dent is on a clear path to creating an empire equipped for the long haul.
Schadre Dent holds many hats including being the Chief Creative Director of her own brand, the Worst Militia Clothing. In music and design, Dent represents the intersectionality of being both black and queer and works on spreading this awareness in a series of pop up shops. The Militia Pop Up is hosted in various cities across the US connecting with other creatives in each city to create an atmosphere where individuals are comfortable in sharing their art and stories.
Most recently, the creative writer released a three track EP titled The Poet released on Soundcloud. Check out the official audio to the lead single, “Keys”.
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.
Most recently, Lil Ugly Toes continued to build his internet presence with the bass heavy screamo friendly track “Bheeep” using world renown Hip-Hop staple WorldStarHiphop.com as the outlet for his release.
“In a lot of my newer projects I’m trying to dig deeper into my feelings and express the things that I’ve been going through more,” Lil Ugly Toes explained. “The big homie Triston (@thereddwarfs) shot the video. I met Triston through another friend when shooting my first music video for the song Two.”
Known as “Toes” amongst close friends and labelmates, the 6’4” rapper began his career in the state of Indiana being influenced by Biggie, Chief Keef and Metallica, but ultimately realized that he needed to move to Los Angeles to further pursue his goals of commercial success.
“I believe that I am the next wave, people gravitate to what I’m doing and I have put myself on another coast away from my family and everything I know strictly to reach my goals. I bet it all on me when I came to LA,” LilUgly Toes said.
In 2018, Lil Ugly Toes formed a partnership with Hollywood, California based record label Starboss. Building brick by brick from their multi-level studio and compound, “Toes” embodies every bit of Larry Bird’s Indiana State days hooping with friends in between studio sessions and video shoots.
Minneapolis artist, Major The General, drops off a new DJ Cam Jones exclusive with his newest hitter, “Street Fighter G.”
The midwest emcee shows off his lyricism by dropping bar after bar over the melodic bass-thumping production.
With DJ Cam Jones working his magic on the track as well, it’s needless to say that Major G can add this cut to his long list of bangers. Check out, “Street Fighter G,” below, and listen to more music from Major The General via SoundCloud.
