4sho Playlist: What’s hot this week (9/25/17)



4sho PlayList: Hot This Week

It’s been a great year for Hip Hop music. From Jay Z to Tee Grizzley – projects have been released that have shaken the foundation of Hip Hop, creating new conversation about artists and their abilities. We constantly listen to new artists and songs as we evaluate our tastes, and today’s no exception. There’s a lot of music that we’re loving at the moment so we decided to zero in on what we’re listening to at the moment so that readers can check the songs out themselves.

“Fresh Prince of Brick Mile” – All Star Lee

This creative flip of the theme song from Fresh Prince of Bel Air is immensely catchy and very well put together. It’s a shame that it’s so short, otherwise, Lee would have a smash hit on his hands. The bassline in the production is nothing short of killer.

“This Is How We Move It” – Payroll Giovanni

Both this and “Fresh Prince of Brick Mile” may both be months old, but they ring just as hot today as they did in their summer releases. Payroll Giovanni’s drug kingpin anthem is an exercise of showcasing masculine bravado in the music video and it’s amazing. You’ll run this one back without a doubt.

“Freezer” – Rich The Kid featuring Kendrick Lamar

Rich The Kid’s hectic flow and delivery make him more of an acquired taste than your traditional rapper. He linked up with Kendrick Lamar for a smooth track that sounds like a good addition to his lengthy catalog. Rich revealed that Kendrick will be directing the video for the track, which will be releasing very soon.

“Sis” – Miliyah Jewel featuring AllStar JR

Miliyah Jewel may be a new entry point into the rap scene, but you wouldn’t be able to tell by the confidence she exudes in her raps. On her new track, she brings the hardcore over a smooth beat that at first sounds out of place. But as she hones in her flow, it grows stronger and stronger.

“Lame Niggaz” – Asian Doll

Tory Lanez’s rendition of Playboi Carti’s “Magnolia” was poorly received across the board. Critics hated it, fans hated it, and the rumor is that Carti hated it himself. Put simply, it was weak. Asian Doll has dropped a hard rendition of Carti’s smash hit, ripping Lanez’s version to shreds.

New Music Releases: Cheflodeezy and Marcy Chin – “Rough Sex”






The story of Cheflodeezy is a testament to the strength of taking life by the reins and having the will and determination to change one’s life for the better. Born in Jamaica, Cheflodeezy moved to the Miami area at the age of 9. Despite finding his passion for music in high school, he found himself homeless and with multiple arrests following his graduation. By the time he was 21, he took charge of his own fate and enrolled in a culinary school, that being what and where he owes his stage name. He would visit the recording studio in between catering gigs before ultimately signing with the Miami record label Artekal. Taking influences from Miami rap and Jamaican dancehall, Cheflodeezy has exploded in popularity, with his last single “Ecstacy” garnering over 300,000 streams on Spotify. As of the moment, he is currently working on a one-of-a-kind project for his audience; a dual album debut, one album for each of the aforementioned genres of his heritage.

Cheflodeezy’s newest track “Rough Sex” is a stark change in style from his previous music, featuring seductive and erotic beats, as well as lyrics that colorfully portray the song’s subject matter. The song’s beats were initially given to Cheflodeezy by 23-year-old Grammy-Nominated music producer Benjii Yang during the pandemic. After experimenting with the material and recording “Rough Sex” by himself, he and the team at Artekal reached out to fellow Jamaican dancehall artist and international sensation Marcy Chin to collaborate on the remix of the original track. Together, they perform with incredible chemistry, and convey to the audience their deepest and darkest desires, with no restraint on how vividly they paint the picture with their lyrics.

Director Steven Barnard perfectly captures the essence of the track in its accompanying visuals. Shot in a remote location in the Californian desert, the music video for “Rough Sex” follows Cheflodeezy and Marcy Chin to a seemingly abandoned gas station, where they stop to presumably let their innermost fantasies play out. The visuals interchange between the duo singing outdoors and becoming intimate inside the gas station store. Even though the song may appear to be celebrating this style of love-making, the music video makes it clear that there is a level of shame between the artists for acting on their primal desires, such as prominently displaying a neon cross on the wall while they perform inside. It raises the question of how far we should let ourselves go to satisfy our sexual itches.

Artist To Watch: Jay Jullio Drop New Music ‘Bookbag Kid’



Jay Jullio is saying goodbye to 2023 with the release of his single ‘Bookbag Kid.’ With him having taken a pause on music to focus on his mental and physical health, it is exciting to have him back in the mix. 

Releasing new music was a very personal journey for Jay because he was hyper focused on caring for himself. When asked about his music pause, he said, “I took a long break from music… [and now this is] me being healed enough to be verbal about things that held me back and my comfortability as an artist.” In today’s world, so much is happening that we all forget about healing and making peace with ourselves. Jay sets the example of striving to heal and create something meaningful out of it. He says he wants people “to get the full experience of ME every time I deliver.” Without a doubt, Jay is delivering the whole package. 

With Jay finding comfort in himself, he created this piece of art for himself. He says this single means more to him than any other work he has put out– he feels he is re-introducing himself. ‘Bookbag Kid’ is a transformative record that tells his story by reflecting on his struggles and where he is now. Jay is here to remind himself and his fans that although we all go through tough times, our stories are unique. That is what makes us who we are. 

‘Bookbag Kid’ is just the beginning of this next chapter for Jay Jullio. The Detroit-native plans to release more new music in 2024 and continue to personally evolve. Keep an eye out for more new music, listen to Jay Julio’s new release ‘Bookbag Kid’ and follow him on social media @jayjullio
