Jimmy Johnson hits the world with some new heat, “Winters End”. I’ve still been bumping Red Ferrari, though getting a new jam to bump is all good with me. I have this feeling it won’t be long before we see some more from Jimmy. Turn the volume up to eleven and vibe out to the OVO affiliates new banger.
Them Clue tapes have always been my shit! I grew up on them, which eventually led into me researching hip-hop to the fullest. Late on a Friday night, Fabolous drops off a freestyle over the “B*tches Ain’t Shit” instrumental. The 90’s themed album, The Young OG Project that we got from Fabolous late last year took me back to those “Young’n” days. “Rolling, gold two seater, stash in the dash, hold two heaters.” – Anyways, keeping it 90’s themed, Fabolous gives us some bars – making it evident why Fab has remained relevant for 10+ years.
That boy Ponders is at it again. Some of my favorite tunes from DillanPonders are remixes, like “Threatz”. Drake recently dropping “If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late” out of nowhere, DillanPonders was the first to jump on “Energy” and bring the heat. Him having RETOX on the way, and news of a 5 song remix tape dropping before hand, you can expect more where this came from.
The first single off Immerze’s upcoming EP – Room 221 – is bound to get anyone “LIT”. Over some knocking sounds from Mike F. The Hitman, Immerze gets on one to turn things up a bit. This is one of those tunes I can see myself bumping in the whip on blast on a nice summer day. Immerze’s new project due out this spring is fully handled by Mike F. The Hitman and Chef Byer. With these three teaming up, you already know it’s going to be something to look out for.
Flex’s SALEM EP re-release is around the corner, and dropping the first single off it – Flex links with with frequent collaborator Emerson Brooks and label-mate M Mac for “Stick Up Kids”. Giving it your all is a must, especially with how short life is. Why settle doing what you don’t like? When you can be everything you wanted to be and more. Knowing how to not to succumb to the negativity that can surround it is key. Over an ambient backdrop, Flex lets you know how he’s about to take it all.
I be on that “Small Town Sh*t”. Richie Blackz and Casper The Ghost, two close friends of The Come Up Show team up over a banging Mazur production, for a track that anyone from a small town can relate too. As two promising emcees, alone they dominate. Together, it’s a whole new subject. Not much need be said for this one, although there is a video on the way very soon! With Richie working on a project, Casper working on a project – only time will tell what comes next. For now, take in “Small Town” and get in tune with the talent London, Ontario has to offer.
A- Fos gets “back to his ignorant side” with his latest banger,”Drugs & Hoes,” featuring the homie Branded Moore. “Drugs and Hoes” sums up everything that we love about rap music. Hip hop heads are always on the look out for an emcee who drops those conscious raps to vibe out with; but at the same time we have the need to bump bangers, turn up and get ignant. A- Fos and Moore have found a perfect balance with this latest record. Be on the look out for A-Fos solo album, dropping soon.
