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.
Ekoh just dropped his new video for his single, "Ted Talk" off the album Detour. What can we say about this dude that hasn't already been said.

Usually Friday is the day to drop new releases, but that wasn't the case today. I woke up and felt like it was Christmas, it was just release after release. And another one!

Welcome and thank you for visiting our new column, Favorite 5. Where we share five of our favorite new lyrical rap songs. This week we feature some great bangers from artists like Jarren Benton, Ekoh & Futuristic. Without further ado, here's some of our favorite new releases.
