DJ Bubba Nabs Quinnfn & SSG Splurge For “Ditch Diggers”

In 2020, DJ Bubba, a red-hot Texas DJ and A&R, spawned newfound popularity with the addition of a recording artist to his resume after releasing new music. In the new year, Bubba prepares for his grand entrance with the release of the new single called “Ditch Diggers” featuring popular Texas artists Quinnfn and SSG Splurge. Bubba credits the new collaboration as working with the youngest and hottest stars in today’s music industry.

Written by Jeremy Lafayette Brown, “Ditch Diggers” is a much-need new song in today’s Dirty South Hip Hop. The boogie-influenced, bass-driven track showcases an overly aggressive Quinnfn and SSG Splurge who drops catchy but lethal verses, collectively. The chemistry from all three entities on the song is electrifying. A perfect origin point for newfound fans of any of the track’s respective artists. Another great lead-up to DJ Bubba’s promising new project.

“Ditch Diggers” is set to appear on the new star’s forthcoming album, I Gotta Find Bubba. The new collaboration is the follow up to the artist’s first look, titled, “4 for 4.” Along with Spurge and Quinnfn, the upcoming album will feature Tommy 2, Dirty Tay, Coldheartedsavage and so many more. I Gotta Find Bubba is scheduled for Winter 2021. Stream the new collaboration today via Circle Music Group.

Th1rt3en – “A Magnificent Day for an Exorcism” (Album Review)

Th1rt3en is an East Coast hip hop trio consisting of Marcus Machado on guitar, Daru Jones on drums & Pharoahe Monch on the mic. The trio have been working together for a little over a year now but with Joe Biden being inaugurated as the 46th president of the United States earlier this week, it’s only right for them to come together for their full-length debut.

Things kick off with “Cult 45”, where Monch takes a well-written dig at the Trump administration over a dingy boom bap beat from Nottz. The next song “Triskaidekaphobia” gets on the horrorcore tip over a bloodcurdling instrumental from Monch himself alongside Parks of The Joe Budden Podcast while “The Magician” compares himself to such over a rap rock beat. The song “666 (3-6 Word Stories)” is a unexpected & decent recreation of the Black Sabbath joint “Hand of Doom” while the track “Goat’s Head” reminds listeners of his lyrical prowess over a beat with a crunchy ass guitar line.

The song “Scarecrow” talks about being on the yellow brick road over an anarchic instrumental from Shylow while the track “Fight” talks about racial injustice over a rock/boom bap fusion. The song “Racist” compares the skinheads to Satanists over an infernal beat while the track “Oxygen” talks about needing this woman in his life over a supernatural instrumental from Marco Polo.

The song “Kill ‘Em All Again” talks about those who can’t see the bigger picture over an impassioned beat while “The Exorcist” makes numerous references to the apocalypse & Medusa over yet another boom bap/rock fusion. The penultimate track “Amnesia” expresses his desire to hold this woman in his arms over a more unwinding instrumental & then the albums ends with “Kill Kill Kill”, where Monch talks about losing his mind some fast drumming along with a guitar & a organ.

When artists make an album stylistically departing from their signature sound, it can turn out 50/50. However, Th1rt3en knocks it out of the park. Not only do Marcus & Daru do a good job with the live instrumentation, but Pharoahe Monch comes through with some of his most political lyrics yet reflecting on all the hardships we faced in 2020.

Score: 9/10

Levi Carter Shares New “Meet Me @ The Bank” Visual

Levi Carter came on the scene and made himself an artist-to-watch in 2016 with the spectacular release of his debut EP, Anti Social. Songs from the debut, like “You Not Gang,” drew co-signs from legendary hip-hop and R&B superstars, but then the new artist disappeared.

Shot by Datknox in night vision, the green-thumbed Levi Carter, donning the latest fashion, raps about waking up and getting to a bag, making it rain, and stacking this money to the ceiling — attracting new fans with his blue faces over the Marcus Basquiat beat. The visual ends with a preview of new Levi Carter music for fans to dive into later on streaming platforms. “Meet Me @ The Bank” promotes Carter’s re-introduction album released last year.

“Meet Me @ The Bank” appears on Carter’s 2020 album, intriguingly-titled, A.I. (All + In). And with the latest single, the project also features noteworthy songs “25:8,” “Jasledo” and “Tricks N Kids.” Available via Mafia Sound, the nine-song album’s sole feature comes from the assistance of Maaly Raw. A.I. (All + In) follows Carter’s series of impactful 2019 singles “Waves,” “Smoke Up,” “XXL,” “Paid In Full” and “You Not Gang.”
