In an era of time where hip-hop listeners are being asphyxiated by this plague of trap music sweeping the planet, there are the few and the mighty lyricists. Artists that write bars, with substance, perspective, and with some actual shit to say. And also producers who don’t safely lean into the current of rapid-fire hi-hats and 808 kick drums, but instead venture outside the box and push hip-hop into previously unreached territories. Randal Bravery, SB The Moore, Chisme, Satin Hooks and Apaso are all artists who fall into this category, preserving the real artistry and grit fans of the genre were attracted to in the first place. Check out this show if you need to be reminded of what real hip-hop is supposed to sound like.
