Five SoundCloud Gems To Get Behind

Published

on

After going on a SoundCloud deep dive, we’ve found five tracks that’ll make your week better, even if it’s just a smidge. These are some out of the ordinary cuts by rappers on the verge of becoming industry iconoclasts when they reach the next level. They’re not afraid to push the envelope so that they may push the culture in return.

 

“Midnight” by Nick Teslah

Nick Teslah is based out of Newport News, VA, and he’s one of the hottest rising artists in the state without the tremendous buzz that comes with prodigy-level talent. “Midnight” is a moody indicator of his dreary aesthetic, incorporating the kind of slow-burning emo feels that many artists try to emulate, yet fail miserably in doing so. Teslah’s got a bright future ahead of him.

“What Am I To Do” by Mick Jenkins

Mick Jenkins has been a fixture of the conscious rap scene for years now. His penchant for quality, other-worldy music is next to none. His new release “What Am I To Do” switches it up, sounding much more grounded than many of his older works, largely due to KAYTRANADA’s production. It’s one of the more soulful tracks that you’ll hear this week.

 

“Save Her” by CashCurt

This CashCurt cut “Save Her” is just the kind of new age hit that’ll leave your ears smoldering. There’s nothing especially unique about it other than the fact that it sounds brilliant, furthering many of the concepts artists have brought to the table in a sonically consumable package.

 

“Pop Shit” by Draydon”

Draydon came onto our radar with “Gem” a few months ago. Now he has a somber new cut that looks to stir up a similar sentiment. “Pop Shit” is a creepy, emotional cut that brings more of his spectacular brand to the forefront. It’s some seriously smooth shit that’ll keep you replaying it.

 

“Poppin Shit” by ATL Smook

You never know what you’ll get from ATL Smook. That’s what makes his music so exciting; he could create a trap banger of the coldest quality, and, next, he’ll create an autotune smash that stands extremely close next to alt-rock. His newest, “Poppin Shit,” sounds like a bass-heavy mix, being one of the best tracks we’ve heard from him in quite some time.

O Racks, Rhoco Benjie & Zeeko Release “Im The Type”

Published

on

By

Following his collaboration with Pop Smoke affiliate Sosa Geek, O Racks (@TreeGang_racks) connects with Drake-producer Yozora for “I’m The Type.” Accompanied by Rhoco Benjie and Zeeko, the follow up to “We Made It” finds the New York native adopting a Detroit / LA influenced flow while boasting about his lavish lifestyle. The trio effortlessly trade bars over the bouncy beat setting the stage for the Tree Gang Entertainment CEO’s next release.

“In Hollywood everyone parties together. When you’re not an LA native you notice the locals taste in music. From what I witnessed, most people gravitate towards Cali and Detroit type beats because the energy makes it easy to dance to. So I told the producer to send me something in that lane. Soon as I heard it, the first verse just flew out – I’m the type of nigga start it up and air it out. The rest was history,” says O Racks when describing the song’s origins.

Born and raised in Hempstead, O Racks decided early in life he would pursue music professionally. Dedicated to the craft, O Racks began rapping and creating songs, even traveling outside of the tri-city area expanding his reach to Rhode Island, California, Atlanta, and Miami. With each release he acquired more fans and sharpened his skills, eventually catching the ear of Rich The Kid. The relationship spawned two records, “Prices” and “Look At Me, ” which received radio airplay soon after being released. Fast forward, he incorporated his independent music label Tree Gang Entertainment and took it to Hollywood.
