The Brooklyn-based artist Flipp Dinero, created some buzz with his melodic track “I Do.” This led to Joey Bada$$ and his Pro Era crew to catch wind of him. In the summer of 2016, Cinematic Music Group’s Johny Shipes, recruited him to his label. Most recently, he dropped a six track EP GuaLa See GuaLa with tracks like “Time Goes Down,” produced by G-Herbo.
The Philadelphia-native and L.A-based artist released three tracks last year that took us by storm. He started with “Laptop” co-produced by Frank Dukes and continued his success with the release of “Snooze,” a song that added Cousin Stizz too. His latest record “Lonely” is his most melodic and low-key song yet.
After he created some momentum with his track “Game Ova,” the Chicago-based artist has been on a two year hiatus. Thankfully, he is now back with this latest track accompanied with eye-catching visuals, along with a musical feature from Smino.
The British newcomer who has collaborated with the likes of Jeremih and Ty Dolla has recently dropped his debut EP “Bad Romance.” With standout tracks like “Stats” featuring Col3trane, an artist he’s worked with before on “Languages.” The EP blends Trap Soul inspired sounds with a touch of grime.
The L.A-based artist debuted this new track produced by Nick Pacoli with co-production by Mars. The soulful track is intended to celebrate the essence of beautiful ‘Brown’ women. His premiere studio album is on the way so keep your ears ready.
Maryland’s Lo Village is composed of Kane & Charles Tyler and Ama was later added for an R&B sound twist. They have recently dropped their latest tape For The Birds. Their song “Lil Mama” carries a solid melody and an catchy bounce.
