The Social Club Misfits tour came to Atlanta and believe me when I tell you it was lit. Reach Records artist Hulvey opened the show and did songs from his ep’s Prelude and BRKNHRT. Tommy Royale kept the energy going with a super exciting set. Social Club closed the night and completely shut it down doing various songs including everything from “Pizza Party” all the way up to “Everytime.” Marty also mentioned that some of the songs they were doing had never been performed live before. Check out these pics from the show.

Young up-and-coming Texas artist 350 released a new single today, “East Side” featuring 1K Phew “After our wedding, my wife and I moved on the block her father was raised on.

After much inactivity over the last few months, WHATUPRG is seemingly back with a vengeance. He just announced his project New Hollywood will be dropping on September 25th. Then today he revealed that he is no longer with the indie tribe. collective. The move has shocked many fans reacting so far but from a business standpoint makes sense. Even though indie tribe. is not a label, RG is with Reach Records, not exactly an indie situation. We’ll speculate no further on whether other things are a factor and wait to hear more news. For now, this is what we got – […]

New Kanye fans were shocked when the highly-anticipated Donda failed to release at midnight on July 24, 2020, as the artist promised while old Kanye fans half-expected a stunt like this to occur.

However, that moment never came and devoted followers are still ritualistically checking Spotify and Apple Music. The following day, Kanye West posted the cover art for Donda on Twitter, giving music lovers a glimmer […]
Here’s some dope music that’s kept me hopeful and motivated this summer. I’m thankful to each of these Christian rap artists for their style and creative abilities. I really hope you dig this music too. Vicious Vic This Nigerian born artist has stood out to me since I first heard him in 2018 with his debut EP Young But Mighty. The sound is clean and well done, and the message is on point. He’s really on that modern tip with the beats, and his flows are pretty tough too. He just dropped his newest EP The Heat List. You’d better stop sleeping […]
