Here’s this weeks’ rundown of new music from some of your favorite artists in the game.
Yeat – Still Countin
Yeat quietly unveils a new video single for “Still Countin,” directed by Cole Bennett. With his upcoming album 2 Alivë in the works, the Portland rapper releases a nostalgic new visual, reminiscent of an early 2000’s-inspired aesthetic. Distorted synths and pixelated in-frame sequences support Yeat’s claim to internet stardom, in route to becoming one of the most sought after newcomers in rap. The video was shot on Cole Bennett’s iPhone, accompanied by a cover art reveal for Yeat’s new project – which includes that grainy, arcane symbolism used on 4L.
Mozzy – Real Ones (feat. Roddy Ricch)
After announcing his partnership with Yo Gotti’s CMG Records, Mozzy returns with a new Roddy Ricch-assisted single titled “Real Ones.” The Sacramento star pens a deeply personal ballad that revisits his come-up story, capturing the essence of Mozzy’s message about perseverance. This new song underlines his signature rapid-fire flow, celebrating the hard-fought victories that made Mozzy one of the most revered figures in rap for more than half a decade.
Lil Bean – forever grateful
Lil Bean is destined to have a breakout year in music. The Bay Area rapper manages to exploit hidden pockets within instrumentals to better accentuate his balanced flow, leaning on past trauma to fuel his ambition. With forever grateful, Bean flexes his lyrical dexterity yet again, proving that he has enough mainstream potential to stand with the best of them. His new album features appearances by ZayBang, Larry June, Mike Sherm and Rexx Life Raj.
Tafia – Na Na
Tafia’s unflinching dedication to his craft is starting to pay off. The up-and-coming artist is quickly becoming a force to be reckoned with amongst his rap contemporaries. His new video single for “Na Na” embodies that moneyed persona glorified in rap today, finding the North Miami-born rapper playing the role of a gangster – shotcalling a series of heists before closing out the night in style.
Rob49 – KRAZYMAN
Rob49 gives nuance to shit talking with “KRAZYMAN.” The New Orleans rapper offloads two minutes’ worth of braggadocious mentions over a menacing instrumental, using his propulsive flow to reiterate the magnitude of his recent accomplishments. The savage in Rob’s blood is alive and well, as evident by the drill-inspired rhetoric used throughout the song. Although he’s making strides towards becoming a familiar face in hip-hop, his seasoned composure is proving that he belongs among the heavyweights.
