Star2 (@Star2Official ) & $tupid Young (@dollasignyoungg) - "Different Breed" EP

Star2 and $tupid Young release their new monumental EP, Different Breed, showcasing the talents of two pioneering Asian-American rappers. The six track collection explores deep-cut experiences up against violence, gangs, and police brutality; all which Star2 and $tupid Young had to overcome to make it as musicians. Different Breed has a supervillain feel to it with darkly lavish beats, venomous rhythmics, and gritty vocals that reflect on Star2 and $tupid Young’s tumultuous journey to fame. Star2 and $tupid Young enlist a stacked lineup of collaborators on the EP including Lil Poppa (signed with Yo Gotti’s CMG label) and MB Nel, another force in the Asian-American hip-hop community. Star2 and $tupid Young are at a crossroads in their career and hope to pioneer the next wave of Asian rap. $tupid Young says it plainly, "I want more Asian artists to break out and succeed". Different Breed cements Star2 and $tupid Young’s status as the guiding forces on the Asian hip-hop scene and it’s only a matter of time before more musicians follow in their footsteps. Star2 has worked alongside Soulja Boy, Mozzy, HoodTrophy Bino, Luh Kel, YSN Flow, and MarMar Oso to name a few. He’s received resounding acclaim from Harper’s Bazaar Vietnam, GQ, Earmilk, BET, Lyrical Lemonade, HotNewHipHop, HipHopDX, The Source, and Ones to Watch. Different Breed is his latest release.

Casket D. (@CASKET_MGB) & Statik Selektah (@StatikSelekt) - "CALCULATED" EP

After releasing HEALER at the tail end of of 2021 and soaking up all it's success in 2022, Casket D teams up with the legendary Statik Selektah in collaboration to hand us CALCULATED. The 4 track EP sonically blends seamlessly and doesn't take a bar off lyrically over the span of just under 13 minutes. Intense in your face lyricism, vivid storytelling to rival your favorite big screen thriller and tons of bravado are laced over Statiks harrowing and soulful production where the delivery fits each pocket perfectly. From the first insert of the producers infamous name tag and seconds later Caskets voice eagerly stating "let's get right to it" a fuse was lit that ignites an explosion which lasts the duration of the EP. Until the final words of the project "hallelujah as I dash to the finish line" commence and only then, does the dust begin to settle.

Rorshax - "Bars Behind Bars" EP

RORSHAX is a hip-hop enigma. He is a lyrical doomsday scenario NASA scientists and religious prophets failed to foresee. Every track he records is an onslaught of hard bars and punchlines. There is no mercy. May God help us all. Something is not right with this dude. He needs to be studied, and so do his lyrics. What we do know is he is mixed race (German mother, Pakistani father). And him being raised in a multicultural environment could be why his approach to music seems to blur together different styles. He loves America, served in the US Army for 14 years (five years Active, nineyears Reserve) and worked in Federal Prisons as a Correctional Officer for almost six years. He is extremely impulsive, and quit his federal job with great pay and benefits to record rap music even though he had no experience. Rorshax ran out of the gate and into the studio like a rabid dog. His introduction to the world of Hip-Hop with his first EP titled Bars Behind Bars, includes six tracks, over 490 bars, and features by M-Eighty and Canibus. On the track titled Why’d You Do That, A&R Extraordinaire M-Eighty rips through twenty-four bars coming at the throats of established billionaires, Jeff Bezos and Elon Musk, as well as all his haters.He is followed by a very clever verse from Rorshaxacknowledging M-Eighty took a huge gamble dealing with him. The Final Test featuring Canibus is the first time Canibus ever recorded a 100 bar verse for a feature. And is followed by another 100 bar verse from Rorshax, totaling 200 bars from US Army Veterans for a 9 minute 24 second rap epic. Every track on Bars Behind Bars has Rorshax lashing out at the world over topics such as the need to execute sex offenders, the Afghanistan disaster (Rorshax served in Afghanistan in 2017), and even his disappointment with the Fast and Furious franchise. As angry as he is with the world, it's abundantly obvious he loves to rhyme, and demonstrates an amazing skill of syllable compounds and lyrical endurance. Rorshax is still writing and recording music, and if he keeps ripping through tracks the way he does, he will be cemented as an all time great.

Shai Sevin (@iamshaisevin) - "Gimmi£ 5 Mins" EP

Stand to attention: hip-hop artist Shai Sevin is, at last, dropping his debut EP, Gimmi£ 5 Mins. The five-act release is, by far, his most innovative work to date, with each instrumental brimming with nowness, whilst also bowing to the ‘old skool’ foundations upon which Sevin has built his concrete jungle. From “Win Doe”, where he brings cuttingly sharp strings to the forefront of the beat, to the militaristic drum rolls of “Rap Royalty” and electro-infused “Clowns”, every track brings a different flavour. “I started to create some instrumentals and had them on repeat in my headphones whilst travelling from A-B through London. As I was thinking of concepts for each track, it felt like there was a natural thread for the EP, without even forcing it,” Shai Sevin shares. Each experiment was like the gasoline, and his truths about carving a path for himself in an unforgiving industry were the flames. Gimmi£ 5 Mins is the inferno we’ve been waiting for: an honest, unflinching portrayal of an artist finally taking the throne. Every conversation, every experience, was part of this portrait. “To me, there are no rules in music”, he says. “Well, if there are… I broke them.”

Rayne Storm (@RayneStormMusic) - "Summer In The City" EP

Fresh of the release of his debut album "Uptown Baby", Harlem Rapper/Producer Rayne Storm is back with his ode to the summer, the "Summer In the City EP." The project features 7 songs and 2 skits for a total of 9 tracks, with a total run time of around 24 minutes. The music flows seemlessly from song to song starting off with the latin rhythm inspired title track "Summer In The City" featuring Qing Screw Face all the way to "Links", the cuffin anthem featuring Dizzy $padez. The EP also includes features from California's own DecadeZ on the banger "Prolly Me", iLeeyah Breeze on the B.I.G./Lil Kim type collab "Treesh" and Bronx lyricist Kony Brooks on "I Got It". "I Got It" also features Dizzy $padez who does triple duty featuring on a total of three tracks including "Body By The Summer", the workout song of the EP. "Summer In The City" also includes a solo track from Rayne Storm, the infectious drill anthem "Blicky Bop" along with skits by voice actor Joey Doe who appears on "Shower Posse" & "Bernice". Production is handled by Cabo Beats for 6 of the 7 tracks, with DecadeZ producing "Prolly Me". Overall, this may be the best project from Rayne Storm so far. The music is appealing, cohesive, well produced and generally entertaining. The "Summer In The City EP" is a soundtrack for that favorite season for most of us. A compilation of antics and experiences inspired that time of the year when the heat makes everything turn up! The "Summer In The City EP" is now available on all major streaming services.
