Jasmine J Walker
Jasmine J talks about the evils of the blue hundreds on her latest single, ‘Money’. The Brooklyn-born artist exhibits a conversational tone, breaking down the morals surrounding money, and the extent people are willing to go to obtain it. She skillfully maneuvers the looping sample on the production, taking charge of the track with her powerful presence that resonates throughout her verses. Jasmine isn’t like other acts emerging out of the Drill-heavy Brooklyn scene, she’s bringing it back to the soul and the artistry of rhyme schemes and storytelling. Check out her track below:
On the flip side, UK rapper LVTee has a fine understanding that money is universal. On his latest single, ‘Green Light’ featuring T2, LVTee provides more than your typical fanfare party raps, he’s making music meant to be replayed until your phone dies. The key is his ability to nonchalantly create endorphin-releasing melodies, which makes each verse a fun-fueled delight. His melodies are definitely his strongest point and we think he can go a long way. Check out the track below:
Through our artist discovery platform Saturday Spotlight, we have discovered some amazing talent in the past including Russ, Ty Dolla Sign, Mez, IDK, Victoria Monét and Trap Beckham to name just a few. In most cases, coverage on HHNM was their first look among media outlets. Find the submission guidelines here.
