Holly has recruited Gunplay and OKAY! KENJI for his new single On Me, out today. On Me is the 3rd single that Holly has released from his upcoming EP on Insomniac Records, Alameda 1000, dropping September 13th. On Me featured Gunplay at his best, reminding his enemies that he’s not one to play with, flowing seamlessly over Holly’s bass-heavy production, with additional production credits from the Atlanta-based producer OKAY! KENJI.
“Gunplay has been one of my favorite rappers since I first heard “Ghetto Symphony” in 2013. It’s crazy how I used to listen to his music before I even began making music on my own, and now we’re on the same record together. I can’t thank OKAY! KENJI enough for helping bring this track to life as well.” – remarks Holly on his collab with Gunplay and OKAY! KENJI

There is so much great music coming out right now. I can hardly keep up and me just getting around to posting this EP is proof of that. “They” are ridiculous and continue to show how versatile the trap sound can really be. Their new ep “Nü Religion” may only be 3 songs long, but these tracks are pretty much perfect and should be played loudly as your riding around town. I can;t wait to see this shit live. Mind Of A Genius have struck gold once again! Enjoy.

The almighty Trap God(s) formerly known as XVII just dropped another huge track entitled “Only”. While the trap scene seems to be congested with copy cat producers, Vincent continues to make his mark, blowing just about everybody else out of the water with banger after banger coming out of his soundcloud page. While I can’t say that “Only” is my favorite track from the LA producer, it still packs a huge punch and I will gladly throw it in the next #FutureFeels playlist. Keep it up son!
22 hand picked tracks from last week. I think you might find some surprises on this weeks list which included several artists with less than 1,000 followers on Soundcloud. If you had to pick an MVP of week 6, who would it be? I’m going to start writing features on the artists with the most popular tracks. This will probably start next week.
It’s literally impossible to keep up with music in 2015. This song has somehow been out for 2 months and I’m just now finding it… “Songs of Solomon” represents the perfect blend of “future” and “trap”, delivering a cold piano melody over some very nice bass. I love this song and hope to hear it somewhere live soon.
There are a lot of young cats trying to make it in today’s ultra competitive world of hip hop music. Ali is one of them who I happened to run into while checking out my boys new studio earlier this week. I was pleasantly surprised with what I heard from the young Palmdale MC. “Dope Fiend” may not be the most original subject for a song but Ali tells his story with a real feeling of authenticity and Bighead On The Beat provides some very smooth production that fits perfectly with the track’s very catchy hook. I’m looking forward to seeing what these guys are really capable of as I know they are putting in plenty of work right now.
Thomas continues his conversation with Coach K about the origin of trap music, beginning with Young Jeezy’s 2004 mixtape, Tha Streets Iz Watchin (according to Coach). Both Coach and super producer Zaytoven—who rose to prominence alongside Gucci Mane—explain the explosion of the genre and eventual beef between Young Jeezy and Gucci Mane. We quickly learn that Gucci Mane has not only become one of the most significant rappers in the Atlanta scene, but has so much leverage that his opinion can essentially decide the career trajectory of any new rapper trying to make it. What’s perhaps most impressive is that Gucci’s influence is still just as prominent as ever—even though he’s currently locked up until 2016.”
Very dope original track here from Whispa and R.O.M. This has all kinds of future goodness laced through out so if you are looking for that spacey ride to get you just a bit higher then I would throw this on stat. I’d really like to hear this live sooner than later so lets get this to some DJs right away. Much love to the UK and all the dope producers making this awesome music right now.
