Baltimore, MD based Hip Hop artist Varsace swings by our HQ and drops his exclusive Mic Session performing, “Above Ground”.
Known from BET’s reality show “Nellyville,” a documentary on the life of the famous rapper Nelly & his Immediate family, Lil Shxwn, Nelly’s nephew has already started his own hip-hop career. The artist proves that there is more to him than just his family’s legacy or the lavish lifestyle he sometimes exposes. Making headlines for his impressive rapping skills and mannerism in his previous releases like “Time Lost,” Lil Shxwn displayed his true potential. The artist’s newly dropped banger, “Do What I Want,” only cements his success. The new track is a collaboration with The Wicker Twinz, Yoni, and Solai, known for their hit song “Oh Yeah”.
With an uplifting beat, swag vibes, and great flow, “Do What I Want” has it all to become an iconic hip-hop banger.
LA-based Mexican urban artist Edel MJ follows-up on his debut release, “Three Hearts” with yet another major production titled “Soñando Despierto,” released through Higher Living Music. Known for his unique fusion of trap, reggaeton, r&b and Hip-Hop, Edel MJ is sustaining a solid momentum with this new release, dropped only a few weeks after his critically acclaimed debut song. Originally from the city of Obregon in Sonora Mexico, the 21 year old has had a great passion for music for as long as he can remember, and finds it fascinating to connect with other people through a song.
While both his releases are impressively beautiful, they also showcase a very different facet of his personality and skills, with “Soñando Despierto” being more complete in terms of presenting his abilities to the fans.
“Soñando Despierto,” which means ‘dreaming awake’ in Spanish is an artistic tour de force as Edel MJ sings and raps at various speeds and switches between moods and atmosphere seamlessly throughout the song.

Conscious reggae/hip-hop hybrid band The Late Ones drop their new music video titled “Troubled Ones“.
Formed in Laie, Hawaii, and based in Gardena, California, brothers Tui Avei and Tau Avei, along with their cousin Josh Brunson, are the voices that make up The Late Ones. Rooted in both their Samoan culture and their African-American Heritage, the familial bond between the three members comes through in their harmonies and give-and-take with the mic, while each of them brings their own conscious lyrics and unforgettable melodies. The name “The Late Ones” pays tributes to all of the late, great revolutionaries who have come and gone, such as Bob Marley, Tupac, John Lewis, Jimi Hendrix, Kobe Bryant, Steve Biko, Chadwick Boseman, and John Lennon (to name but a few). It is the fusion of each revolutionary story, struggle, and message that inspires and resonates with The Late Ones’ own journey and love for all genres of music. Built on this deeply rooted conviction, the trio harness something undeniably special in calling for justice, freedom and equality with their music. Think of the Pharcyde, Souls of Mischief, and A Tribe Called Quest collaborating with The Mighty Diamonds or Culture, and you get a sense of what this sound is like.
