DRIP DROPS of HIP-HOP from CHATTANOOGA
By Sammy Lowdermilk
Here's a quick little recap of tracks, albums and visuals that dropped over the weekend that might not be on your radar! Don't sleep on good music!
The Underachievers - Stone Cold x Deebo
While The Underachievers are a personal favorite of mine, they are for a reason. They're also joining Joey Bada$$ and Flatbush Zombies for the "Beast Coast Tour," which starts next month and hits both Nashville (8/9) and Atlanta (8/6) in our region.
Jasiah - Crisis
Jasiah brings a gritty, yet hype song with 'Crisis.' The song is also produced by Jasiah which exhibits his versatility. Check out the wild visual brought to you by Lyrical Lemonade.
Maxo Kream, Ghost Magneto & BG Kenny Lou "Trap Relays"
Maxo Kream made waves all of 2018 and he definitely shines in this one. He brings both that trap sound as well as that Houston, Texas, flavor. I expect big things out of this artist in 2019.
Lizzo - Tempo (feat. Missy Elliott) [Official Audio]
Lizzo brings some heat on this new track with Missy Elliott, and Missy shows she's still got it! I saw Lizzo perform at VooDoo Fest in New Orleans last year and the girl can put on a show! I would definitely recommend seeing her live. This song is off the upcoming album 'Cuz I Love You,' which is out on April 19th.
Melo Makes Music - High Vibrations
Fresh off his debut project late last year, Melo Make Music brings us a laid back head-bobber with 'High Vibrations.' This single is off his upcoming album, 'Odyssey Fun World,' which drops in 2019.
Tyler Thomas - Dripped in Gold
You definitely feel 'Dipped in Gold' as you listen to this latest from Tyler Thomas. He and Don Zio P work well together with a masterful flow throughout the song. Tyler is getting a big push from Pusha T and we can see why.
Friyie - ANF: Ain't Nothing Free
This Toronto artist drops a heavy hitter with a nice feature from Tory Lanez. While 'Stay Down' is a hit, other songs even outshine that one, specifically 'Hop In,' 'Rockstar,' and 'On Wax.' The entire project is pretty good and unlike most albums, the entire thing is an easy listen.
