Las Vegas Native Kiari Stone Turns In His Festive New Single, “Summerlin Hoes”

In every major city around every state in the country, there is an area of rich kids who live by their own set of rules. In Las Vegas, that area was Summerlin for a long time. A upper-middle class suburb that sits 30 minutes from the Las Vegas Strip, Summerlin is home to the wealthy kids who’s actions in high school weren’t as monitored as others. For the rest of the city, this meant taking advantage of them, and their parties, leading to some memorable fun not possible a few miles north. Hailing from that area in the north, rising Las Vegas artist Kiari Stone checks in with his engaging homage to this notion, “Summerlin Hoes.”

Serving as the first single of the year, Kiari Stone returns with his energetic, high-octane single, “Summerlin Hoes.” Paying homage to an upscale suburban outset of Las Vegas, Summerlin is known for being home to some of the city’s richest and most powerful people. Coincidentally, the area is also known as one of the most festive local locations in the city as the heirs of those rich and powerful people have been known to have a bit of fun while they work. Produced by UliCookUp, “Summerlin Hoes,” perfectly captures the fleeting feelings of angst, anxiousness and joy that come with a high-octane, unpredictable night of partying with some Summerlin women.

Get Familiar With Austin Geller & His Reflective New Single, “Boring Life”

Though life is a gift, it’s far from easy, and sometimes that notion smacks us right in the face. While many of us just want to make our younger selves happy of our progress–which is inherently impossible unless you had no imagination as a kid or you’re BALLIN’ now–there comes a time where many of us look in the mirror and start reassessing how we feel about our current status. Hailing from Los Angeles, rising vocalist Austin Geller touches on this topic poignantly with his engaging new single, “Boring Life.”

Set to the tone of fast paced guitar riffs and infectious drum patterns, “Boring Life,” finds Geller evaluating an earlier self, reflecting on life playing out in unexpected ways. It explores the questioning and acceptance of shifting goals, interests, and phases in our lives as we progress and grow individually. Showcasing impressive vocal range and a knack for melodic progression, perhaps the greatest quality of this record is the sense of empathy in the lyrics. With such a relatable topic on hand, it’s easy to see this record making an emotional connection with listeners.

Northern California Rapper 4toda5to Returns With His Action-Packed New Mixtape, ‘THIS Might Never B 4 U’

Prior to the last decade, one of the most popular practices in Hip-Hop was rhyming over other people’s hit records. For most of the time, it was a way for rising artists to allow the public to hear them over mainstream production, while for others, it was a way around label woes. Hailing from Richmond, California, 4toda5to falls in the former category, as he’s spent the last few months on a tear to establish himself as one to watch. Taking things a step further, he borrows some popular beats for his engaging new mixtape, THIS Might Never Be 4 U.

Clocking in at 8-tracks, THIS Might Never B 4 U finds the Richmond native rhyming over a handful of industry beats, harkening back to a time where artists jumped on mainstream instrumentals to promote upcoming releases. Throughout the project, he recruits Fastlane P8.24 and more as they rip through instrumentals from Cashmoney APEmkayHitmaka and more at a rapid rate. Taking advantage of the fast pace set from the production, 4toda5to absolutely positions himself as the leader, showcasing a slick confidence that pairs well with his poise on the mic. Serving as the standout, “Dumpin,” perhaps showcases these qualities the best, as he realizes some of his rapid potential in real time.

Ohio Native Copywrite Checks In With His Long Awaited Project, ‘The High Exhaulted II’

Columbus, Ohio rapper Copywrite has returned with a new album called The High Exhaulted II,
the sequel to his 2002 debut The High Exhaulted. Across his prolific discography, the
underground veteran has consistently pairs sharply-crafted lyricism with layered, versatile
production. On his latest release, he delivers powerful verses with intense, focused delivery atop
infectious instrumentals from Mondee, D1, the late great Camu Tao, and more that combine

rhyme patterns. The production here is expansive and textural, with raw keys, head-nodding
percussion and heavy bass. Next, “The Lah” follows with ethereal, mercurial production

The memorable and engaging “Spoiler Alert/ Have U Cena?” finds him sending shots at wrestler
John Cena, who he accuses of stealing his lyrics for Cena’s music. Atop intense production
featuring metallic synths and pounding drums, he delivers piercing lines, before a surprise beat
switch takes the energy up even further, as he dissects the situation with Cena through poignant
bars. “White Sean Price” provides another project highlight, with warm, layered samples made
up of graceful vocals and guitars ringing out atop a gritty drum loop that Copy flows atop with
assured ease. The Vordul Mega-assisted “Maintain” is potent and emotive, as it finds the two
rappers dissecting societal problems atop wintery, spirited production. Lastly, the LP finishes
with “Silence“, a pensive track that contains thought-provoking pianos and textural drums which
underscore Copy’s strongly evocative vocal performance.

Released on Man Bites Dog Records, The High Exhaulted II showcases some powerful, well-
crafted vocals from Copy, and finds him as sharp as he’s ever been. With potent, thoughtful verses and raw, enticing production, this is an engaging album that combines a variety of sonic
influences from hip-hop’s underground into a cohesive, exciting blend.
