Our thoughts: 

Since Felly’s, “Winters in Brooklyn” he has signed with Sony Music’s Same Plate Entertainment, moved to Los Angeles, and dropped “Surf Trap”. The new album embodies a warmer vibe taking you to Miami and through an uplifting emotional journey. Felly’s songwriting is often fueled with transcending lyricism and motivational production to ensure you’re moving to the beat of the guitar strum and drum. Connecticut-raised trapper has packaged a cohesive project, only 26 minutes long, to play with the top down at full volume.

"Winters In Brooklyn" with Felly

Felly - Winters In Brooklyn

It has been a cold winter for sure, and your boy Felly has dropped "Winters in Brooklyn" to show you exactly what it's like to embrace the "dark and eerie" season. With a snowstorm among us, this album is a perfect listen to take you on a wavy ride to get through it. Felly's flow is feel-good yet real, with subliminal messages tapping into his childhood struggles and growth as he continues to excel in his career.

Felly has been making waves for a couple years now, and at the young age of 22, this is only beginning of his reign in music. The self-produced album is living proof that Felly has a successful road ahead. The unsigned rapper is no amateur to the hip-hop scene - you can be a witness to it at SXSW this weekend.

Wale's got that "Staying Power"

Listen to Wale's new song "Staying Power."

Staying Power - Wale

Wale has always kept it low key but when he gives us a dose of his soul it definitely has that "Staying Power"! Less than a month after his last release, Wale blesses us with his newest single that calls out the industry while staying true to his craft by spitting a conscious flow. 

Wale recently went independent and has three releases in 2018, and it's not even March yet! Does this mean we can anticipate a full EP or a huge project on the way!? I hope so because we need a little bit more real in the rap game. "You rapper n*ggas ain't rapping good," and I agree that there is a majority of mainstream music that is lacking substance. I find myself constantly questioning why these clout pioneering rappers take over most streaming sites with basic music. Is our generation lacking the ability to listen?

Personally, I have been around too many people working on getting the right pictures for the socials that they tend to neglect to work on mastering their artistry. Wale says it perfectly, "how you got a landlord and a Lambo." Makes you think about how this quick rise to fame and money makes people buy these big toys but forget to invest in providing the basic necessity of a roof over their head. Regardless of the call out to those not utilizing their platform in the best way, I can definitely say Wale is not one to let the current state of events stop him!  

The "Staying Power" single is a perfect song to get you going and keep grinding.

"Paranoid so I'm drinking heavy
Hearing voices so I don't sleep heavy
Had a choice I could turn her back
I be running back for a team or something
Kick return wide receiver money "

Watch Tinashe glow on her newest release, "No Drama" featuring Offset

Tinashe and Offset

Kentucky Native, Tinashe releases the "No Drama" music video in collaboration with Offset. Both stars are captured in scenes flashing from Tinashe moving alongside her crew of dancers, an underground box match, and glimpses of Offset in a dimly lit room with chains falling from the ceiling to add to the anticipation of the bars he is about to drop. 

The video shows clips of Tinashe dancing and moving through an abandoned warehouse, while fiercely gracing the halls with her presence and top of the line look. Her look consists of diamond-encrusted cuffs while wearing a mesh top with the gently placed teardrop crystals. At one point of the flashing scene, we get a glimpse of Lukas Abbat, which explains the queen like fit Tinashe proudly struts through throughout her empowering anthem, "No Drama".   Watch the video yourself below.
