Welcome to another edition of the top 5 submissions on WIB. I don’t need to reiterate on how many submissions we get every day and how we do try to view each and everyone of them to no avail. Without further ado, bask in the glory of the unsung underground talents here.
KALAOU – Give & Take (feat Mr Cheeks & La Summers)
The purpose of this record was to get a feature with an established artist. We reached out to several musicians; Mr. Cheeks was the only one who took our proposal seriously. A meeting was later arranged, One week later we were in the studio making it happen. Recognition from our peers and neighborhood was the overall objective behind this collaboration. We felt with a Platinum recording artist behind us we would accomplish just that. The record is legendary because it uses the sensei verse student concept. Throughout the chorus Mr. Cheeks schools the young duo on the ins and outs of the industry and street game. In return the duo delivers verse that show much evidence of confidence and independence. They indulge their sensei notions by making their experiences relative to their sensei overall message.
HASEEB x Curtiss King Beats – Game Days
Game Days is the single off South Cali emcee Haseeb and producer Curtiss King Beats forthcoming EP. Bright sparkly jazz backdrop against Haseeb’s street tales makes this worthy of your time.
The monotony of day to day grind often leaves many of us burnt out and unmotivated. “Game Days,” is a record which provides a narrative expressive of those days which never quite seem to end. Listen as Southern California emcee, HASEEB, and producer, Curtiss King, deliver the first record from their forth coming collaborative EP titled, The Daisy Chain.

Femi Jaye – Don’t Play (Prod. C Y G N)
Jordan Femi-Famakinwa AKA Femi Jaye is a 20 yr old emcee from Essex, Barking. Don’t Play is visually weird with a lot of retro/blurred graphics. The song itself is pretty energetic, intense and thought provoking.His first EP was named the “AnimeFan EP” which lead single “Feel It” was also featured on BBC’s Introducing show.
SEYI(LAZ) – Sippin Tea Feat Matt Patick
Far Rockaway emcee Seyi shows some brilliance on his single Sippin Tea. Just like the meme that inspired the title, Seyi wastes no time in doing what he knows best while giving the nay sayers the Tea sipping’ treatment.
Latest single off the mixtape “N>I>B” coming soon. Summer anthem for 2015 and all the good days in between.
