Audio: Westbay x Prestigious - "Lithium"

DM360: It seems like rap standards such as lyrics and flow have taken a backseat to the image and glitz that comes when a new artist is exposed - so much so that stars can develop their audiences in the comfort of their own homes, and translate that into concerts and media appearances. But if you're really who you say you are, just know that Westbay and Prestigious are coming for ya', and ready to call you out, right in front of your people.

Video: Jahzel - "Wake Up!"

A.T.: After releasing a drill-induced second single entitled "Who Is You," Northside Chicago rapper Jahzel premieres a grim, chilling visual for first single "Wake Up!" via FakeShoreDrive. The video focuses on two characters facing opposing realities, as one appears to be successful and the other is homeless. The backdrop, which is just as haunting as the choir on the Flawless Trackz-produced record, showcases what can happen when desperation meets opportunity.

Video: @Busdriverr - "Motion Lines" (@TrevorSeamon)

Video: Busdriver - "Motion Lines"

Trevor: What would Gravityís Rainbow sound like as a rap album? Here is an album which, if we may, reminds the listener of their whispered allegiances to fundamental realities. The brushstrokes are delicate, stabbing, pointed. The overwhelming crescendo they whirl towards may be one of bitterness, and rightfully so. There is also lightness. A black man is giggling and pointing at you. It may have everything and nothing to do with rap and oneís place in it. Humiliation, no longer a threatóbut a reality, has been exhausted. Perfect Hair is what remains.

Video: @uMaNgKhOsLa "Accomplices" (prod. B.B.Z. Darney) @ILLADRENALINE

Video: uMaNg "Accomplices" (prod. B.B.Z. Darney)
