Ta-Yo – Zo Waldron (Letter To My Unborn Seed)
LA based hip-hop band Ta-Yo help start this week’s Top 10 submissions with a very heartfelt and poignant single titled “Zo Waldron (Letter To My Unborn Seed).” The 4 man band is made up of rapper TeedaMac, producer/pianist Dan-Michael, drummer/producer Nikko Salvador, and bassist D.Bach who all get together to make music based on real-life experiences laced with rich, live instrumentation. “Zo Waldron (Letter To My Unborn Seed).” is a prime example of the collective’s multi-faceted approach to making music as they go against the grain with their topics and musical arrangements. The three minute plus single showcases TeedaMac’s storytelling proficiency and highlights Dan-Michael, Nikko Salvador, and D.Bach’s background as jazz/hip-hop musicians and their affinity for linear songwriting. The song is dedicated to TeedaMac’s firstborn son, Alonzo Waldron and also acts as an ode to inner-city youth by reminding them they have options outside of their aspirations to be a rapper or an athlete.
“Zo Waldron (Letter To My Unborn Seed)” is the first of two singles rolling off the forthcoming EP and acts as the perfect appetizer for Ta-Yo’s eclectic sonic range.
Phil – F*ck It.
Emerging emcee Phil gets really deep with his perspective on women, love and all the drama that occurs when things get awry. Over a somewhat solemn production, Phil takes the listener through his struggles and how he finds it hard to open up with women due to his past experiences. He keeps it a hundred by admitting that he is trying to not the past hold him down but it’s easier said than done.
Ohmfield – Rec Hom (feat. Alex Wilke).
The multi-talented UK based producer OhmField teams up with vocalist Alex Wilke on his newest single titled “Rec Hom”. The mellow track has a very solid and lush production and coupled with Wilke’s smooth vocal performance, it surely has that gripping feel from start to finish.
Jeremiah Ali – Bring Me Down.
Jeremiah Ali shares his thoughts on real-time issues on his new single/video “Bring Me Down”. Armed with a laid-back, confident flow he addresses the many issues black and brown people face on a day to day basis.

Luch Skywlkr – Boost 700.
Rising hip-hop act Luch Skywlkr makes his debut on TWIB with a fiery performance on his new track “Boost 700”. The West Philadelphia rapper is all about the lyrics, swag and taking over the game as he goes for the jugular over a vibrant trap soundscape.
Thutmose – Memories
Thutmose delivers his new track “Memories” and its quite alluring. Over a smooth/lush sounndscape he takes the listener through the emotions with his heartfelt lyrics and melody laced vocals.
The track is featured in the new SpiderVerse movie and on the soundtrack. Thutmose is the only independent artist on the soundtrack!
GDFNTHN – No One Needs to Know.
Underground act GDFNTHN shares his offbeat take on hip-hop on his new song “No One Needs To Know”. The production used here is weird, unorthodox and goes against the standards. His use of weird vocal inflections kinda adds a unique style to the overall song to make it stand out.
The visual concept is nice too and showcases the rapper as a someone who is striving for success while forging a path the only way he knows how.
BRYN – So Gotti.
Rising South London sensation BRYN drops a hard-hitting gem titled “So Gotti” showcasing her fiery style laced with that unique UK flavour.
“So Gotti” is taken from her recently released project 99 Mixtape which serves as a thank you gift to all her fans who held her down throughout the year. The release of the tape comes fresh off the back of releasing ‘Drunk & Wavey’ – her ground-breaking U.K./ U.S. female collaboration with critically acclaimed stateside rapper Dreezy. It also follows 2018 released tracks ‘QueenPin‘, ‘Bailiffs’ and debut ‘Pull Up’, featuring other hot collabs with London MC’s Suspect and Yung Fume.
FR333 – Peaches
Oakland rap duo FR333 get super sultry on their new song “Peaches” which fully showcases the duo’s sexuality without restrictions. The overall vibe is warm and sensual but not executed in a raunnchy manner, its rather classy if you asked me.
“Peaches” is the new single by Oakland rap duo FR333, off their recently released EP “TH3 BODY”
Sir Tizzy – Vibe (Prod. By AraabMuzik).
Sir Tizzy closes this week’s list with the dramatic single “Vibe”. Over a dark AraabMuzik soundscape, the rapper delivers his own take of being unique in whatever you do. The song is all about individuality and being able to create one’s unique vibe.
