BEWARE’s Block: No Costumes Needed
New music from NA$TY, Molly Brazy, TwonDon, Peter $un, Skipp Whitman, Kritkit Boi, LaBerge, and more
With music easily made and readily shared by new artists every day, there are hundreds of high quality songs that fly under the radar. Every week, @BEWARE4 scours the web to weed out the dimes from the duds and share the wealth via BEWARE’s Block, a collection of eight buzzing tracks from artists currently breaking ground in their respective genres.
NA$TY — “Alignment” (Prod. By Chance)
If you’ve got that lazy friend who claims no one raps well anymore, shut them up with “Alignment” from NA$TY. This sharp new loosie finds the beastly East Coast spitter dropping not-stop multi-syllabic rhymes atop a beat from Chance that sounds fit for a showdown. Whoever faced NA$TY lost, because this shit is a smoking barrel of lyrical firepower.
Peter $un — “U DNT KNW” (Prod. By Twuan)
When Peter $un heard the slow-crawling beat on “U DNT KNW,” he must’ve known there was room to turn up, because that’s exactly what he did. The juxtaposition between Twuan’s timid production and the Virginia MC’s upbeat flows is extra on point here, with $un shining light on his angst to get ahead quicker. Tracks this dope definitely help the momentum.
Molly Brazy — “Molly’s Story” (Prod. By Go Grizzly & Deafh Beats)
“In a world where aggins don’t respect a queen, sometimes you gotta’ point, aim, and shoot to change things” For being only 18-years-old, Molly Brazy has seen some shit. Listen to the rising Detroit rapper’s new single “Molly’s Story” and hear the upfront young gun get down atop building production from Go Grizzly and Dafh Beats, using her versatile flow to explain how she fought to beat the odds and is now headed to a world beyond her city limits. If she keeps the hustle up, there’s big things on the horizon for Miss Brazy.
TwonDon — “For My Ex”
Most men love to stunt on the exes in flat out rude ways. TwonDon is a bit classier than that. On “For My Ex,” the consistent New Jersey spitter drops a lavish new single that reminds his former ace he’s doing quite well without her, without rubbing it in too much. Gotta’ keep it movin.’
Skipp Whitman — “Goodnight” Video
Whether you’re headed out tonight or got your face-painted kicks this past weekend, Halloween queens and kings will appreciate the spooky vibe of Skipp Whitman’s new “Goodnight” video. The clip finds the Boston-LA rapper/producer dressed as an oddball police officer and digging into some oddities, while effortlessly spitting high-end bars atop a stalking beat. Skipp’s new Unfinished Songs Vol 1 project drops soon.
Chris McClenney — “I Ain’t”
Looking to set a vibe? Change the mood for the best instantly with Chris McClenney’s “I Ain’t.” This new, indie-pop R&B ditty is a subtle sonic wink that delights ears with McClenney’s mix of slick, quirky production and tantalizing vocals. When so many copycat tracks making waves, a record this unique is refreshing.
Kritkit Boi — “Flights”
Talk about an appropriately-named groove. Turn on Kritkit Boi’s “Flights” and listeners are blasted into some other stratosphere, thanks to the loose, funk-hop that immediately puts bodies into an auto-pilot bop. To be honest, I don’t even know how this column got written, ’cause I’m just grooving over here.
LaBerge — “What U Feelin”
Have a thing for disco and R&B house edits? LaBerge has got “What U Feelin” with his new dance-ready drop. Featuring hot vocal chops, a killer synth stab, and bassline that never stops teasing, this one was definitely cut up with sweaty brows in mind.
