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.
Follow My Lead features Jehry Robinson and King Iso in a Strange Music stable collab. Jehry released his latest album, 20/Twenty, last Friday. It's a fresh album, with multiple inspirations of music composing some hard lyrics. I believe Jehry Robinson could perform in any genre of music, we're just lucky he's chosen lyrical rap. Follow My Lead is one of our favorite tracks from the album, and one of our favorite picks for this week.
Entry 2 of our new feature, Fav5, where we like to promote Five of our Favorite new lyrical rap songs. We love sharing all types of lyrical rap music, from the local upcoming artist to the living legends. We may not capture every great release out there, but we hope what we do share is a sound that's fresh to you. New quality music from quality people.
Lyrical Rap is sometimes hard to find. There’s a lot of music out there, and a lot of ways to listen to it. What the streaming platforms and radios promote, may not always be quality hip hop. If you listen to a lot lyrical rap like us, your playlist and streaming radio stations start circling around the same songs. It’s the failure of the algorithm. There are times where the algorithm works though.
