Spotlight: @PhilthyRichFOD Owns @JODYHiGHROLLER On “Big Ballers”

Published

on

When we listen to Riff Raff – which isn’t often, admittedly – we do so for a good laugh. He’s not a traditional lyricist by any means; he values shock and aesthetic versus crafting complex lines. And there’s nothing wrong with that at all, we do listen to Lil B. So while it may not be our particular cup of tea, we can see how people like his music and support him. In addition to rapping, he’s a likeable guy, plus he has an outrageous personality that’s just magnetic.

Riff Raff made one of the best moves he’s made in years. For his new song “Big Ballers,” he enlisted Philthy Rich and DollaBillGates to help ground his zaniness and expand his audience. The results?

WHOOOOOOO!!!!!!

That’s our reaction after playing Philthy’s verse initially. Over the outlandish extension of trap production that Raff so eloquently provides, Philthy lets loose with a swaggerful verse that practically screams “This is my song, go away now” to the other two artists. It’s, seriously, the centerpiece of the song, for good measure. Without it, “Big Ballers” would feel incomplete; Riff Raff is a little too crazy for the grounded (yet spacey) production to make sense of it. Philthy, once again, shows his ability to be the glue that binds the tracks together.

Check out “Big Ballers” below and fast forward to Philthy’s verse. You’re welcome.

Bay Area Spotlight: @Rezn_ Brings The Mellow Vibes With “Colors Of You”

Published

on

Bass-pounding beats in hip-hop never get old, but, it never hurts to play things a little softer and smoother. We’re not even referring to R & B music, just rap with a calmer vibe. Something that you can nod your head to and sip from on a cool summer night. Rezn’s new jam “Colors Of You” is a serious, introspective record that looks at his own insecurities as well as those of the women he encounters but also manages to be a chill Saturday night song. Vocalist Breana Martin sings smoothly on the chorus, adding to the amazing overall package. Rezn’s flow is nice, but his ability to steer the song into cool waters is what makes it a gem.

Bay Area Spotlight: @NBSslimmyb And @DaBoii__ ‘s Chaotic Video For “Gang Gang” Is Just What We Needed

Published

on

When OG Maco released “U Guessed It” at the tail end of 2014, hip-hop received a much-needed facelift. The chaotic energy on display in the track was unlike anything in the market and it contributed to the song’s viral nature. Since then, releases have followed the format, but nearly none have been able to successfully match the song’s energy and the video’s tenacity. That’s changed with Slimmy B and DABOII ‘s new video for “Gang Gang” an energetic and colorful manifestation of an already vibrant track. The two artists perform the song as the camera swings wildly around them and the energy practically flows from them. It’s surely a hit for the warmer months as it will continue to get spins from us for a long time.
