Whether it’s your latest single or a new beat you made, all upcoming artists can submit music to us for Saturday Spotlight on this link.
Wise Da God
Wise Da God is holding the east coast on his back. In his single, “COVID” he joins forces with Will Po in all-out lyrical warfare. The production is the definition of gritty—it’s like a crime noir novel where dirt is left underneath your fingernails after the first chapter. Wise snarls over the muddied percussion, showing glimpses of the style that New York collective Griselda has championed. Check out latest track below:
Fk Woodz is drenched in swagger and finesse. On his track, “Havin’ My Way,” his vocals are baptized in rich auto-tune as he croons his desire for an unlimited amount of funds. “Havin’ My Way” is a song that’s made when you’re in complete control of your fate. Designer drugs and designer shoes dressing the feet; this is the lifestyle of rap royalty. Woodz knows what it takes, taking over your city is the first step. Check out the track below:
