Swazy gave us major flames back in June when he released his latest project, “SpudSwazy” The lead single, “Splash“, from that mixtape has been heating up southern Georgia, so it was only right that it got the visual treatment. The video is directed by Karltin Bankz, who creates the perfect backdrop for Swazy’s smash single. Swazy brings along his go-to producer JoshDidThat as well as snatches up some the hottest women in the city and takes the party to the pool.
The Weeknd has been on a hit making streak since he first entered the game and clearly that streak seems to have no end. With his latest release, “Starboy” still getting spins, the second single from that album just got the remix treatment. Having been released almost a year ago, “I Feel It Coming” just got a nostalgia remix from Saint Laurent. The track was already dope with a R&B vibe, but Saint Laurent took it back to the 80’s and the end result turned out amazing. With R&B being on life support, it is always good to hear modern music throw back to the golden era.

Lil Uzi Vert finally released his highly anticipated next chapter in his Luv Is Rage series. With major buzz building up around his name and one of the hottest singles of the year (“XO Tour Lif3”), Uzi has all the chips in his corner. With the new crop of rappers that are at the forefront, Uzi is leading the charge, so his debut would have the most eyes on it. The first “Luv Is Rage” was the breakout mixtape that Uzi released back in 2015. Since then, a lot has changed for Lil Uzi Vert, the obvious being that he is now a bonafide star. With that accolade attached to his name, comes high expectations. With features being limited on his debut release, Uzi only brings along The Weeknd and Pharrell. For the instrumentals, some of the industry’s hottest join the party. TM88, Metro Boomin, Pierre Bourne, etc. all show to bring out the best in the self-proclaimed “rock star“. With mostly positive reviews by the industry, this release is surely to only add to the star power that Uzi gracing the hip hop scene with.
Today, we celebrate the one and only Nate Dogg’s birthday. The OG would have been 48 years young day. Happy birthday Nathaniel Hale aka Nate Dogg.

After leaving work and heading to the crib to relax, one of my favorites records out of the south graced the radio. It was “Cut Friends” by Camoflauge and it made me realize how his senseless death robbed us of such a remarkable talent. Growing up in the 912, really made this story hit close to home. Back in the late 90’s and early 2000’s, when it came to local talent, we had Savannah’s very own…..Camoflauge. There was no denying the talent that he possessed and it was evident that he was destined for greatness. The south (No Limit and Cash Money) was really starting to buzz on the national scene and it was a great feeling to see a local artist finally getting some shine. Backed by his record label Pure Pain Records, Flauge with one album already under his belt, released his follow-up album and the rest was history. The album was titled “Strictly 4 Da Streets: Drugs, Sex and Violence. Vol.1 and produced the mega single, “Cut Friends” (or “Fuck Friends” the explicit version). This record became a main fixture in every club in Georgia. Major record labels started calling and it seemed as if Flauge had finally found national stardom. Then the tragic day of May 19th, 2003 occurred and Savannah was never the same. Camoflauge was shot and killed, and the talented person that he was never got the chance to flourish.
Hailing straight out of Millen, Ga, Kountry Wayne hits up The Breakfast Club to kick it with Charlamagne Tha God, Angela Yee and DJ Envy. It is always great to see people from my area making it. Salute big homie!
San Diego rapper Samy Wats presents his music video for “Think Twice“, his new single produced by southern California producer LDontheCut. After multiple listens, “Think Twice” proves it is the type of record that can gain national attention. The instrumental compliments Samy’s flow which in turns equals good hip hop. Keep your eyes on this artist.
