Atlanta based Zaia continues to ride his own soul infused wave with his latest “Barriers.” Equipped with his signature laidback flow, the 20 year old rapper uses lyricism and melody to establish a vibe.

BIG K.R.I.T. hops onto Bay area artist Caleborate’s mellow rap ballad, “Soul,” and adds his signature Southern flair for a fresh new remix to start off 2018. The production, credited to Lege Kale, gives the track a classic hip hop feel with some subtle dance vibes.

Pouya is back with another single sonically designed by his go-to producer Mike The Magician. “Handshakes” is the second single off a highly anticipated album release for March 2018. WIth a flow that’s been compared to Bone Thugs-N-Harmony and Three 6 Mafia, one aspect that makes Pouya one of the most exciting artists in the underground rap scene is his lyricism. Getting right to the point in this latest single: “Don’t you turn back to me I made the lane you walk today / I just want your loyalty / Don’t let this be one more mistake / Inside plotting on me / Outside handshakes.”

Typically known for his smooth, electronic instrumental production OTR leans pop with new track featuring Ashley Leone, “Bliss.” This comes as the first single toward an EP to be released in the coming months.

Mija reinvents her sound with “Notice Me,” a change the Los Angeles based DJ and producer has hinted toward for a long time. Typically known for her hard hitting bass beats, the production on “Notice Me” is light and delicate, but driving at the same time dripping in airy vocals and vulnerable lyrics courtesy of Mija herself.
