[New Album] Damon Logan - Melissa EP

You like your rap with a dose of dope lyrics? Check Damon Logan's second album where he flexes his skills on tracks like Swoosh 2. The rest on the album sounds influenced by modern soundscapes from trap to that off-beat rhyming.

Sep 01, 2016

[New Music] Benji & J - One Speed (prod. Dame G)

[New Video] MC Magic feat. Roca Dolla, J.Rob the Chief, & Jen Taber - Summertime in AZ

Yo we couldn't claim to cover all Arizona hip hop if we didn't write about MC Magic. Love him or hate him, his music, or what he's doing on the radio - you gotta respect him. He's an AZ rap legend who made a name for himself by hustling and working his ass off. I still remember seeing him at the swap meet selling mixtapes and making special rhymes for folks birthdays for $5. He made his name by paying his dues and definitely deserves all his success whether you like it or not.

[New Music] Kidd Grim - Happens Like That (Prod. Nostalgia)

We really like what Kidd Grimm and Doni are cooking up. Is this a dope track? Not really. But it showcases something unique about those two - they're willing to push the envelope and try something new and we respect that. It doesn't always work but when it does, it's great.

Aug 30, 2016

[New Music] Daviphresh - All Year (prod. SpaceRangerVic)

There's a lot of trap coming out of AZ (and every where for that matter) and it's getting a little stale but All Year stays fresh. Dude gets props for the local reference - "hotter than the Sun Devil down at the UofA." Really enjoyable is when he's going ham on the track and then kicks some French so he pauses to question what he just said.

Aug 30, 2016

[New Music] Halee Cole x Tok Sik - Fall Up

Is it EDM? Is it RnB? Is it rap? I don't know and I'd prefer not to pigeonhole it cause it's super dope. That beat though! Tok Sik and Halee Cole sound very nice opposite each other. They have a modern day Ja Rule and Ashanti sound without the cheese.

Aug 30, 2016

[New Music] Dorian Colter - FourFiveSeconds

Dorian Colter has been a busy man lately releasing two tracks in the last 20 days or so. Here he's clearly inspired by Chance the Rapper and we benefit as a result. Very few rappers can handle that spazzy, high energy wildin' like Dorian Colter. It's an exciting song from an artist we've been excited about for a long time. Don't sleep on him.

Aug 30, 2016

[New Music] i-Dee - #SurferSundays #12 (prod. Cheeze)

He's Devin the Dude meets Nas but he's from the coastal, Drake but less emo, Ye with less than ego, and more Mac Millery than Bryson Tillery - and he's dope as fuck. Another entry in the Surfer Sundays series and as always it's sick. Check it out then check out The FloCast with i-dee on the podcast page.

Aug 30, 2016

Aug 24, 2016

[New Music] Eighty Two - This Is My Year

Rashenal and G-Owens drop a track indicating that all seasons they bring it. We first heard this track on West Coast Wednesday's and it didn't immediately stand out. After a few listens though, it definitely stuck in my head. That subtle guitar in the background reminds me of palm trees swaying and the chorus is a perfect summer time refrain to sing along with.

Aug 23, 2016

[New Music] - 4nthemTheGoodkat feat. Gerald Supreme - Pho Thanh (prod. Tok Sik)

Sit down, wait for your heartbeat to settle, and then get lost between the concious and unconcious. That is the space this song exists in.

Aug 23, 2016

[New Music] Benji x Loh x Leel - Fuck the Work Up

Aug 23, 2016

[New Music] Robleezy x Denzel Davis x Ellie Roots - Hope

This is simply a dope track. Each rapper speaks knowledge and Ellie Roots drops a jazzy, ill chorus. The piano sample sets a thoughtful mood and the drums and 808s are smartly placed. Good shit here man.

Aug 23, 2016

[New Music] Marley B feat. Black One - Hotter Than

Aug 23, 2016

[New Music] Baker x Gatz - Fuck Dem Bitches (prod. Baker)

I was just talking to someone recently about 3-6 Mafia and why that sound hasn't inspired more rappers. Well here it goes, Doddy Gatz and Baker replicate that sound as best they could and it's a southern bounce banger. Try not nodding your head to this one.

Standouts include Kids, Trekell Park, Jules, and What a Day.

Aug 18, 2016

[New Music] Eloy Gabriel - SOLOMOBBIN (prod. attixiv)

Eloy's lonely isolation is our gain. On SOLOMOBBIN, he's crafted a track that is bouncy but that captures his being alone. It captures the essence he's going for without being depressing. He raps the following "

i think twice/as fast as the last grown man/a stampede/of thieves and wolves and wolves and sheep/
they came to please/they left for the meek."

Aug 18, 2016

[New Music] Visus feat. Zaire - Knowledge of an OG

Visus typicaly kicks political and socially concious rhymes. Here he does the same but does so in a way to let us that he has knowledge of the street life.

Aug 18, 2016

[New Music] Doni feat. Collar John - NiceGuys

Not too many rappers in AZ repping Fountain Hills; here you go though.

Aug 18, 2016

[New Music] Ends - Beautiful: The Ness Kennedy Sessions

Ends is a confident dude and he spits those Greatest Ever type raps. Beautiful: The Ness Kennedy Sessions is chock full of braggadocious and game changer type rhymes. For example on I'm Here he spits, "I'm a lead the revolution through the music and then move it to a bigger impact/just follow the lead." It's on An Open Letter where shit really gets real as he kicks raps about thoughts on his family, mortality, and legacy.

Aug 18, 2016

[New Album] Lando Chill - For Mark, Your Son

Art as a form of self-medication is necessary for an artist at times, and I'm certain it's more often than not beneficial. From a listeners vantage point, the intimate view can be a beautiful thing to observe. Lando Chill uses this album as a means to come to grips with his Father's death and it is executed exactly as it needed to be. We're fortunate to sit in on the spellbinding single Coroner, where Lando's visit from the coroner makes him realize what his father's death means and question the realities of a music scne driven by social media culture. It's an album full of keen observations and introspection. Other standsout include Early in the Morning, Save Me, and I'm Awake.

Aug 18, 2016

[New Album] Jake Eff - Burgess (prod. SB Louie)

On Jake Eff's new album, he wants to present what life as a resident on Burgess is like. Thus the aptly named album has references to all the things happening on his block (imagine indulgent fun) and outside (trips to Benihana to eat teriyaki chicken and sip champagne to name one). Jake Eff doesn't overly complicate things with his rhymes, he kicks straightforward raps. SB Louie adds density to the record with his beats whether he's uilizing samples or synths. Standouts include F.N.O.B., My Level, No Other Place, and Yes I Do. 

Aug 18, 2016

[New Music] Malone - Chiraq

Aug 16, 2016

[New Music] THEEDESTINATION - Man Down

Aug 16, 2016

[New Music] Gerald Supreme feat. Leo Chizona - Herban Legends (prod. Tok Sik)

It's like we can't do a news page update without including a track from a Products of Infamy member. This crew is so large and stays consistently releasing music. This track from the Herban Legends is a stoney track.

Aug 16, 2016

[New Music] yung joey - 112 in Arizona

Yung joey's debut release has a few things going well for it. First of all, the cover is super dope. The Arizona sunset captured is beautiful. Second, he has a dope selection of producers with nawlidge nick, Jordan 1ne, and Kaylib all contributing. Finally, he's in a good lane as a rapper that works for him. He has a good voice and when his lyrics really start coming around like on Birds, you can begin to see the potential.

Aug 16, 2016

[New Music] Cruise & Loh & Uprhnd Izzy - Ea$y

We've been told since Cruise & Loh mentioned it on the Legal Trap interview that we'd be hearing a collab album with Uprhnd. Here is one track off the highly anticipated album and it doesn't disappoint. The tracks cool as fuck, chill vibe allows the rappers verses to shine. Loh kicks a memorable, quotable verse that is memoralized in Brownboi Maj's ukulele verse on the FloCast. Cruise and Izzy don't let Loh have all the fun as they both drop that fire as well.

Don't sleep on Tucson people...there are a lot of rappers down there doing their thing. Tucson's Adrian Veee drops a 9-track record with features from EZGoin, Stev Martin, Self Explan, and Tommy Will. Truth Be Told is trappy in its beats and lyrical content. It's in Sluggish feat. EZGoin and 100 feat. Tommy Will that the album really shines. Everything Adrian Veee is trying to accomplish with this album is fully on display in those tracks.

Aug 16, 2016

[New Music] MastodonRare - The Revenant Intro

"A proper kid who comes from the the ghetto, but not the opposite," says MastodonRare on this intro to the album that will be released on September 30. On the strength of this and his other music, we eagerly await what's coming. The samples and the bars in this track are all dope.

Aug 16, 2016

This track from Sonoma gets a little dark at times. The beginning opens like the theme song to a scary movie and then the themes are kind of morbid.

Aug 16, 2016

We agree with Visus on this song when he says Arizona is about to blow up.

Aug 16, 2016

Aug 16, 2016

[New Music] Visus feat. Emmitt Dupree - Laid Back (prod. Syndrome)

Laid Back is a perfect title for this trck. The beat is a laid back, drink in your hand, sitting in a dark room contemplating life type beat. Visus however kicks those hard hitting rhymes.

Aug 16, 2016

[New Music] Doni feat. FanningSystems & Jordyn Larue - Mad Greens (prod. the Deli)

Often in AZ, people make the comment that everyone sounds the same. Doni should be considered the exception. He doesn't sound like anyone else. His sound and lyrics are all unique sounding here in AZ. It's fun and playful. Mad Greens has an acoustic guitar sample over a simple beat. Each rapper kicks a verse with Jordyn Larue kicking a cute rhyme that sounds like an outro to the song. Doni and FanningSystem both kick a rhyme that is all over the place content-wise but it sounds dope and has some quotable moments.

Aug 16, 2016

[New EP] L.Ord-Az - BlackWater EP

Aug 12, 2016

[New Music] Gibby the Kid feat. Eddie Wellz - Ahriman's Gift

A concept record that will be included on Gibbys mixtape dubbed Planet Nowhere. Eddie Wellz has that mad passionate flow that draws the listener in.

Aug 12, 2016

[New Music] Emmitt Dupree - Bri (prod. Space Ranger Vic)

Whoever Bri is, thank God for her. First, the vocal sample used by Space Ranger Vic is dope. Emmitt's emotive lyrics and flow jogging over the beat works perfectly with the beat. Then he gets on some Positive K back and forth with the chick that's pretty entertaining.

Aug 12, 2016

[New Music] Yung - Dark Soul (prod. natejayejay)

Aug 11, 2016

[New Music] COSMICKAMIKAZE - Synopsis

Different is good. Adventurous is interesting. This beat is on some hip hop Frank Zappa shit - it's all over the place and  it works. I'm not sure if the congas were recorded live but they sound super nice. CKK's ebbs and flows with the beat in a way that's very satisfying.

Aug 11, 2016

[New Music] MACMAKINGMONEY - Sorri

Aug 11, 2016

Aug 11, 2016

[New Music] Salty Brasi - Lost Cause (prod. Charlie Mumbles)

Salty Brasi raps that he grew up in the underground and this track makes me believe him. He and Charlie Mumbles craft a record that sounds like it could've come out of the west coast scene that spawned Dilated Peoples, People Under the Stairs, and the Living Legends.

Aug 11, 2016

[New Music] UPRHNDCRIS feat. Stress - Wits (prod. CMB of UPRHND)

Wits starts out as a lonely piano that slows the heart rate. Once the bass hits, you almost feel like you're in the dark room with one candle burning shown on the cover. Stress then steps up to the mic like a dude with a purpose. Cris finishes things off. It's mentioned in the comments this is little teaser for Cris' mixtape - we'll look forward to seeing the finished product. 

Aug 11, 2016

[New EP] fresco. - whtvrs on my mind

Aug 11, 2016

[New Music] Jaca Zulu - Before I rest (prod. 1$t Place)

Jaca Zulu asks a pertinent question in these dangerous times - "Will I live in peace, before I rest in it?" Slapping the listener with a political banger and thought provoking lyrics, Jaca doesn't mince words. He spits  "judge, jury, execution way before the court dismissed" and the feeling the justice system is becoming a system of injustice smacks the listener in the face.

Aug 09, 2016

[New Music] Delly Everyday - Generation E

While I originally said just a rapper rapping over a dope beat. What I mean, is a dude becoming an emcee doing his thing.The beat is actually kind of chaotic with the sparsely placed cymbal hits but Delly is able to kick his flow with no problem. And he has a few positive messages mixed into his lyrics.

Aug 09, 2016

[New Music] Under Society - 7th Drive

Under Society is one of those artists we discovered as a result of the One Take contest. This is the song for their One Take video where the camera follows 6 different rappers. Seems like a pretty tough task but it's pulled off well. The track allows each rapper the opportunity to do their thing over a simple beat.

Aug 09, 2016

[New Music] DemiHughes - Don't You Tell (prod. MXV)

From the cover to the lyrics to the hook somethings going on here. Demi wants secrecy from his chick but he says she can handle it.

Aug 09, 2016

[New Music] Manny - Jordy Rainbow

Not sure who the artist is here so if you know, get at us - let us know. This track has that Ibiza or nu-disco beat with a little rapping over it. It's different but we like what we hear.

Aug 09, 2016

[New Music] Amma - Nobody (prod. The Martianz)

Nobody is a mantra; a message from a wise old soul spit by a young lady. Go ahead say it with me - I don't think it's good for us/to dwell on all the useless stuff/life goes on and it aint waiting for nobody.

Aug 09, 2016

[New Music] I-Dee - Surfer Sunday #9 (prod. Qux)
