Brooklyn’s Trece Vee is making music for those quiet late nights, the late-night drives where the loudest thing in the car besides your breathing are your thoughts. On “Tktv”, the skilled rapper breezes through the smooth instrumental, spitting verses reflecting on the everyday BS that we have to deal with — and the good times in between. Trece’s hazy flow is laid back, fully-composed, and delivered as if he just finished a smoke break. His individuality and the unique lane he’s paving are exciting, making him an artist to look out for in 2021. Check out his track, “Yktv” below:
Krish’s latest single, “Without You” is another quarrel with love, but for the singer, it’s moving on that’s the hardest. The Chicago resident sings these verses with a sense of loss that lingers off of every word. Over a bed of piano keys, he sings, borderline rapping his verses, reflecting on what’s gone and how he’s going to cope without the person in question. His vocals are soft, yet the punch it packs on the messages and theme alone hits deep in the chest. Check out his single, “Without You” below:
