Scoob Rock & Blacktop Megaphone – One Time
The duo of Scoob Rock and Blacktop Megaphone drop an offbeat hip-hop track on the list titled “One Time”. Over a bouncy, choppy soundscape, the emcee delivers a unique flow tinged with patois vibe on the chorus. The single is off the duo’s upcoming EP, “Blacktop & Rock”, which is due out in early 2019.
Spenny x Simco Slim – O.I.C.U.R.M.T.
Hip Hop duo “Spenny x Simco Slim” (SxS) team up with Toronto based Director Tim MacLennan to craft the video for their newest single “O.I.C.U.R.M.T.” The vibrant song has a vintage 90s groove laced with Spenny’s unique flow and wordplay abilities. The uniquely spelled, 7-letter chant has a “sound-it-out” energy and will get you screaming the chorus as it plays
“O.I.C.U.R.M.T.” was originally recorded in the basement studio of Simco Slims’ Annex (Toronto) apartment back in late 2016. The tune highlights a revolving door of themes that describe the views of “SxS” as they observe their everyday. The exaggerated party track sums up a range of insights in this commentary that speaks to being a millennial, seeking self-awareness and overcoming limitations while earning viability as artists.
Set in an abandon water park “SxS” and crew exploit the park by re-claiming it as a skate site to gather footage. MacLennan flawlessly syncs clips as if ”O.I.C.U.R.M.T.” were a soundtrack true of classic skate edits. Described in this cinematic reel of scenarios, MacLennan candidly captures a raw perspective that parallels the duo’s present day antics and the hijinks lifestyle associated with hip hop and skate culture.
Regular Steven – Tombstone (Prod R.Munoz)
Regular Steven is not so regular as he delivers a solid passionate performance on his new single titled “Tombstone”. The R Munoz produced track has a classic 90s boom-bap vibe. His simple, funny and perfectly timed bars keep him grounded and existing in the same world as his listeners, resulting in an intensely intimate track. While not deeply focused on his own life, there’s a certain level of connectedness that you can feel between Regular Steven and the audience he is speaking too through the extremely relatable feeling that pours from Steven, through the microphone, and into headphones around the country.
Regular Steven is just a man built by his surroundings like any other person. This can be seen most clearly with the way that he channels his status as a normal human, going through it like anyone else, into his music. Building up his independent label, Sleepy Heads Entertainment, with his team, Regular Steven is constantly working to better himself as a musician and a person as he walks his path towards the future in his mind. He won’t stop until he’s reached his destination through the release of excellent music and the strength of his team by his side.
Muyinza – L.T.B.
Los Angeles based Uganda born emcee Muyinza shows up on the list with a vibrant record he calls “L.T.B”. The production here is quite unorthodox and has a whole lot of EDM vibes which Muyinza sounds comfortable over. Produced by his longtime collaborator Leo The Kind, this record takes you synth-heavy, bass-laced ride while Muyinza encourages everyone to truly let go of all inhibitions and allow the animal out
“L.T.B” is off his album titled “First & Forever” due in early 2019

Mr Play – You Decide (Music Video).
After teasing the visuals for weeks, and on the back of the single receiving strong radio and club support across the UK, Africa, and the Caribbean, award-winning British DJ and fast-rising artist-producer Mr. Play unveils the brand new music video for his massive debut single ‘You Decide’ featuring Jamaican dancehall star Demarco and Nigerian singing sensation Adekunle Gold, which is taken from his forthcoming debut project to be released in 2019.
Filmed on location in Atlanta by Des Gray of Foreign Made Films, who has previous worked with the likes of future, 21 Savage, Gucci Mane, Rick Ross and Young Thug, among others, the music video for ‘You Decide’ is a sexy and captivating visual offering, which brings the infectious dancehall-tinged jam and club-ready dancefloor filler further to life, and captures all three artists – Mr Play, Demarco and Adekunle Gold – in their performance and showmanship element.
The track itself, which was produced by Mr Play and Demarco (Vybz Kartel, Sean Paul, Konshens, Busta Rhymes) and is led by glorious vocal performances from Demarco and Adekunle Gold, marks the exciting transition for Mr Play, one of the UK’s biggest DJs and nightlife connoisseurs, from behind the decks to the artist forefront, and is only the first of many exciting cross-genre and cross-culture collaborations that the revered London-based DJ has been putting together, to be unveiled next year.
Young TY – No Love.
Rising UK rapper Young TY delivers the visual for his debut song “No Love”.

The radio-friendly track mixes things up with an Afro-Swing beat, Young TY’s drill delivery and even some singing hooks in the chorus
Lucas Roth – Give It All.
Detroit raised, Lucas Roth, is an L.A.-based rapper who aims to bring a fresh approach to the rap game. His new single/video “Give it all” has a smooth electronic feel with its lush synth and trap groove while he kicks originnal bars with ease and precision. He further explains “When people can’t quite put a finger on what genre a track is, I think it intrigues them more,” Roth explained. “Good music is good music no matter what anyway, without having to label it. This was a fun project since I got to put my favorite sounds together.”
The visual is very colorful and futuristic as well. We don’t really get to see his real face too as it’s clouded with off-kilter visual effects. This marks Roth’s fifth official video to date and is his first music release since his debut album “You’re Gonna Go Far, Kid” dropped in August.
