Howdy HHNMers, how’s it going? Sorry we missed you last week, but we’re back today with a brand new edition of our Saturday Spotlight series where we shine the light on some notable upcomers. Today we’ll here from Spoat, Dynamic Equilibrium, Moe, Nikko Lafre and D. King who all leave us with something to enjoy. See ya next week!
Remember: We take submissions for this series. See guidelines here.
22 years old and out of New Orleans first up is Moe, who brings us his latest installment of his “Is Anybody Listening” series. With the 4th project, Moe continues to let loose on the game and prove that he is someone worth paying attention to. Going back to his roots, Moe brings us that classic New Orleans sound that us early hip-hop heads grew up mesmerizing. Take a listen to the full project below and keep your eye on this spotlight.
We featured this talented duo known as Dynamic Equilibrium a few weeks back with their fiery track titled ‘Age Of Enlightenment’ featuring Scienze. Fast-forwarding to today, the NYC tag team dropped the official video for the aforementioned track and we had to show it some love once again. Check it out below and cop their latest project Post Crack Era on iTunes or stream it here.
Next up is Las Vegas native Spoat who certainly knows how to make his presence felt. In his new single titled ‘Oh Baby (Biggie Smalls)’, the promising hit maker does just that. The Falloutz production is perfect for the club and Spoat’s flow matches quite well — very Biggie Smalls-esque. The ode to the Notorious B.I.G. will be featured on his upcoming DJ Rell-hosted mixtape Spoat Illustrated 3 coming in the next week or so.
Returning to the Saturday Spotlight is Nikko Lafre and his hot new track ‘Nights In Minneapolis’ produced by K Beatz. The young MC continues to impress us with each verse he drops and we see a bright future for him and his team in the future. Check out the blazing new hit and for your own sake, pay attention to this talented spitter.
Reppin Baltimore City, last but certainly not least is D. King who delivers a soulful new single titled ‘Blue Light District’ off of his upcoming debut album History In Motion. Unfortunately the city of Baltimore is crime-filled and in this powerful new tune, D. King offers his own insight on the never-ending issue. This is the type of hip-hop our culture needs and it’s good to see D touching on some real-life scenarios. Check out the hot new jam below.
