Seuss got that sick flow. He’s got all kind of styles, but its his fast paced, head nodding delivery showcases his talents. Like I said, he’s got about everything in his toolbelt of rap flows. He can spit them club beats out, serve you with a catchy tune that’ll stick in your head, then flip the script and spit real issues with truths that punch. Check out the first few songs on his latest album “Mixed not Mastered” if you want to talk about that real shit.
Its high time we featured Buggie’s first EP on the site. “Buggin’ Out” has been out a couple weeks now, and after listening through it for probably the seventh time, I can still say its as fun and catchy as it was last week. Buggie gives an energetic journey that combines the sounds of hip hop and R&B. There’s kind of story there, or at least I’m about to create a story from the release.
Friday's "Release Radar" was throwing some fire this morning. I knew from all the social media chatter that some great music was dropping, but dang I was surprised. Enough so I thought it warranted a post on the website. We got 8 New Releases featured in this article from some of the best Lyrical Rappers in the game. Check out the videos below, and each artist name should include a link to either their spotify or youtube page. Here we go.
Welcome to week 3 of our "Rap Label Fantasy League", where Marshall and myself act like we're label managers, and use real life streaming and social data to simulate success or failures. Using the fantasy football model, we have drafted 2 teams of 7 hip hop artists. We've been tracking 4 stats: Spotify Monthly Listeners % Increase, Youtube Views % Increase, Instagram Followers % Increase, and Perceived Value Total Increase.
It's late, but that's okay. It's a weekend of celebration. It's Valentines Day weekend. It's my anniversary weekend. It's Buggie Birthday, and he's releasing a new video for his rap/rnb song "Night". I was already working on some designs for him, and figured I might as well celebrate his new video release with a short post on the site. Happy Birthday Buggie! I hope everyone enjoys the video!
Hiway’s sound is fast, fun, and can carry a strong message dedicated to a great theme, much like in his release “Smile”. Hiway has songs for days. According to his Spotify discography, Hiway has been releasing music since 2008. 13 years in the rap game is a testament to his commitment to learn and achieve in the hip hop world. We spoke briefly on it.
Twenty days later and “Week 2” wraps up. Welcome to Lyrically Rap’s Label Manager fantasy league. Where we track success indicators from Spotify, YouTube, & Instagram, from a group of drafted artists to our make-believe rap labels. The competition is currently taking place between the heads of Lyrically Rap, Hoosier & Marshall.
The people make it special, especially in those times when you get to meet someone who’s genuinely cool af. Osay, rapping out of Atlanta, is an extremely talented newcomer, who’s been studying the game for years. Osay’s sound is reminiscent of old school legend Biggie and 90’s rap, but with a modern vibe. I dare you not to nod your head while listening.
It's official. After all the doubt and hate, Team Hoosier takes a commanding 3-1 lead in the Lyrically Rap Label Manager Fantasy League. It did come a little later than expected though. Yeah, we may have 'planned' to record scores like two weeks ago. But things happen. Christmas, craziness, and stuff. We were lazy over our Christmas break.
We're trying out something new here, something to stir up a little friendly and hopefully entertaining competition. Welcome to Lyrically Rap's "Label Manager Fantasy League". Its basically Fantasy Football, but instead of comparing football stats, we'll be drafting Lyrical Rap artist to our fantasy Rap Label. Marshall & I will go head to head to determine the best "Fantasy Rap Label".
