Brockhampton had a great 2016, the individual artists who make up the group all grew by themselves and that growth is apparent in their newest song/ video “Cannon.” Kevin Abstract, Merelyn Woods, Don McLennon, Bearface and Ameer Vann all contribute to the track. The group will hopefully be dropping the follow up to their 2016 project All American Trash in the coming months.

LA rapper/ producer Blvc Svnd drops off a new tape titled ‘DIVO’

Blvc Svnd might not have mainstream appeal, but he doesn’t seem to care. His style sounds like it was inspired by MadeinTYO, Rae Sremmurd and the darker aesthetics of Eminem or Tyler The Creator paired with the aggressiveness of a Denzel Curry. The 18 year old’s delivery is very nasally and borderline lazy, he might be recording from a reclining chair. However, he still manages to create catchy bangers with the perfect amount of calculated dissonance. His project DIVO appears to be the ideal embodiment of this young artists career up to this point. Check it out below you won’t be disappointed.

von-alexander-mayhem-1993

Milwaukee isn’t usually high on the list of hip-hop hot beds, but the the city north of Chicago has been making waves in the past two years and at the forefront of the movement is Von Alexander. The 23 year old’s latest effort comes in the form of Mayhem1993. The album is an interesting assortment of sounds, from Atlanta to Chicago, and a range of tones varying from introspective to braggadocios, with the end result being a fast paced taste of what Milwaukee has to offer.
