Every now and then, there are periods of time when a ton of good music seems to pop out of nowhere. Months can go by, with me listening to the same shit I had been forever then, all of sudden, a whole new crop of songs and albums for me to dig my teeth into appear. Not gonna front, soundcloud has really upped the ante on this cause it seems like artists I check for release a new song for the hell of it every month or so.
Anyway, I often like to take the temperature of what you guys are fucking with. So here are 7 songs I’ve been fucking with (many of the artists are favorites of mine you should be very familiar with if you follow this blog), in both video and soundcloud form. I’m curious what you like the most. There’s a poll after the songs and I know how much people like voicing their opinions online. Well, now is you chance. Peep them and lemme know.
Wiki-Livin’ with my moms
Shirt-Queens to Hollywood
Mr. Muthafuckin’ eXquire-Gold mouth piranha
Michael Christmas- Look up/save the day

Fresh daily Feat Homeboy sandman- Bodybag
So, what’s your favorite of this batch? You can vote for more than one if you’re the indecisive type
This is one of those groups/artists I heard about a while back was like “hmm…pretty good” Then accidentally forgot about. Apparently so did the internet. In this day and age , when it seems like most rappers like this might get at least 15 minutes of fame and then vanish into the abyss, Wiki somehow didn’t really even get that. He did, however, get his crew Ratking signed to XL records so the fact he hasn’t been getting pumped up on blogs recently and whatever might just be for a limited time only.
The first thing you (and everyone else) says when they hear him rap is that he sounds like a young Eminem. The similarities are definitely there. From the high pitched nasal voice to his relentless flow. However, I do feel something distinctly new york about this kid that separates them. I read that he’s from Manhattan (which is a rarity for rappers so I gotta feel a little hometown pride there). He definitely reminds me of a 2013 version of the grimy kids that would spend their days in Washington square park , smoking blunts , half assedly kicking it to any girl within ten feet of them and freestyling that I knew from my youth. Whatever the case, I think the kid can definitely rap. I may not love his beat choices but that’s more of a personal taste thing. Also, he’s a young dude. Surely he could grow and, with the skill set he’s already got, I’m curious to see where this all goes.
