Video Spotlight: Lil Kappy Brings Back A Largely Forgotten Sound In “Spotted”

Published

on

It’s finally happened. Early 2010s drill has seen a semi-revival thanks to Lil Kappy and his magnetic new single “Spotted.” Trap rap made a transition into drill rap thanks to the massive Chicago movement, but it quickly left that for the cloudy, melodic, bass-thumping stylings utilized by artists like Young Thug and Rich Homie Quan. If you thought that drill music was washed away in the canals of time, I’m happy to tell you that you’re wrong. Lil Kappy does the convention justice.

Maybe it’s the bog standard trap beat embellished by Kappy’s vocals that make it a hit. Or his sheer energy that makes you want to continuously play the track back and revel in its simplicities; today’s complex releases make use of so many moving parts that by the time they end, listener’s are often confused.

One thing’s for certain, the visual plays a large part in the track’s power. It’s shot in crystal clear HD; better than some of the releases on VEVO. Seriously, Kappy’s camera could capture the germs resting on the kitchen cabinet. It’s that clear. And through this lens, we see some serious firepower. It’s classic drill props for a classic drill song. How can you not love it?

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.

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.
