INFAREL – “Distribution”

INFAREL is bringing real hip-hop back to the forefront as he drops the “Distribution”. The track has a scenic blaxploitation soundscape which forms the canvas for INFAREL’s vivid lyricism as he uses the analogy of illicit dealing for his music. From crafting the most concentrated form of hip-hop to working with a tight-knit dealership and retailers, the rapper proceeds to move units like the most potent uncontrolled substance you can find on the mean streets. The accompanying visuals bring the lyrics to life with it’s engaging storyboarding and detailed breakdown of his music empire.






Rapper/songwriter KYLE KNIGHT takes us to the “EAST SIDE” in his latest single. Backed by a sublime and soothing sample and punchy drums, the rapper basks in his success and the summer sun. Armed with his laidback flow and charismatic demeanour, KYLE sure brings something refreshing to this effort. The accompanying visuals continue the celebratory mod with its performance shots and captivating cut scenes of the rapper in his stomping grounds.




Kevin Nova – “Fall Apart”


Palm Beach County, Florida-raised, New Brunswick, New Jersey-born rapper Kevin Nova caught our attention with his newest release titled “Fall Apart”. The reflective track is made up of a melancholic vocal sample and warm keys with snapping drum grooves underpinned by Nova’s reflective and insightful bars that center on the never-ending struggle we all face and the need to always lean on someone during hard times. The visuals have a DIY feel and use a slow-moving camera to capture Nova’s performance style in pure cinematic fashion.



NY artist Vyle gets into the zone in his newest single titled “UNDER_RAGING”, a hard-hitting expressive track made up of thick pulsating basslines, distorted synths and rapid-fire drums all peppered by his stylish and expressive flow and vivid lyricism that explore topics such as self-discovery, layered social relationships and the complacency that exists in modern-day hip-hop. The visuals have a psychedelic feel and use mind-tripping motifs that take us deep into the rapper’s mind and we get a glimpse into the darkest corners.



Showrocka – “2023 Rap Up (I’m About To)”.

Showrocka sets the story straight with “2023 Rap Up (I’m About To)”. As a rap documentarian, he offers us a vivid and engaging recap of all the major events that occurred in the hip-hop sphere with his unique twist. Inspired by the works of luminaries like Mad Skillz and Uncle Murda, Showrocka offers an alternative viewpoint of these events and it’s a welcome addition. The visual is well-crafted too and uses clean-cut scenes and performance shots to get the message across.
