Kriss Stasse’s world is filled with color and wonder. On his single, “Cocoon” he explores the paths to paradise, filling his verses with soul-screaming Soul. There’s not a drop of aggression in his voice, he’s laid back and chilled out. That doesn’t mean his ability is absent. He makes rap look easy, rapping like it’s effortless as punching numbers. The production provides a dreamy atmosphere that elevates the song’s textures. Check out the track below:
South Florida is pumping out talent like how Griselda pushes out projects. The scene is vibrant and exciting. Up next from Clearwater, Florida is Ggmg Remo. Reno embodies the Dirty South, the music has a rattling bounce, with Remo’s southern accent thicker than cough syrup. On his latest single, “Drip Drip”, his raspy voice belts verses flexing blue Benjamins and toting extended clips. Check the track out below:
