itz My single picks 6/29


In da midst of a whole bunch of major releases in hip-hop a few artists had balls enough to drop them a lil something also… or maybe they just didn’t really pay attention, who knows? Regardless, these are some nice jams to listen to.

MiaWasHere releases this slowjam-y reminiscing joint produced by the almighty Suedegawd. Girl can spit, switching between slow and double time flows. A lil something for the hip-hop loving ladies to relate to. I mess with it.

SCR’s own, Rickee Stylez owns this shifting and playful beat with switching flows and battle-rap styled wordplay. It’s had a strong spot in my playlist for weeks. Then he finishes the song off spectacularly with his climaxing rhythm. So cold.

Panama Red produces this beat with strong pianos and a melody that possesses you to get up on your feet. And Matt McGhee brings a colorful twist to getting your freak on. It’s only two minutes, but it’s catchy enough for you to be playing over and over and over again.

AND THEN… one of my favorite tracks of recent times, the jam that keeps it cool in the summer, DeLorean Musiq. This song literally makes me want to hustle and cop me a DeLorean so I can bump this in the whip. ┬áThe instrumental is cool inspiring and futuristic. It has great progressions in the verses and the hook is just magnifique. Trig’s unique style and delivery along with CJ’s BARS supplements to make, to say the least, a great song.


Itz My Instrumental Picks (2/16)

I been peeping a couple of instrumentals that have been on point lately. Check on these producers, don’t miss out on some talent you feel me?

We gon start with my latest instrumental obsession, the one and only amazing Kisai the Spooniest Bard. Yeah, that’s a funny name, but this dude’s production talent is no joke. He has a unique video-game/anime inspired sound. His style is generally real smooth with a lot of violins and other high-pitched instruments, lot of wavy-ness, jamming simple drum beats, and also has tons of transitions. Check out this song and… nah just check out everything from this guy.

And this guy ILLCosby impressed me greatly on the first listen with this really funky track. Nothing short of one minute and fourteen seconds of amazing.

Then I also found this high-bass heat. Has a sort of 2000’s era club sound to it mixed with a sort of haunted house vibe from the organ.

Lastly, I got this spacey neo-soul ish from my homie Soule. Some real relaxing stuff you can put on if you tryin to give yo a relaxing little chill sesh in da tub or something idk.
