Well-traveled between Italy, Singapore and Greece, the songwriter and producer brings her latest single which is not only an obvious display of her smooth, jazzy vocal range, but also her empathetic and careful hand to string together an instrumental that fits her range perfectly.

Silly Annabelle - Richard Pigkaso

Richard Pigkaso has always been ahead of the curve as someone looking to branch out from the norm of trap stars and ringtone rap.

But with Something Different officially here, the ‘Yo-Yo MC’ began a campaign to display why he is much more than a one trick pony. With a total 360 into who we though Pigkaso is when it comes to his music, “Silly Annabelle” resurrects a rare occurrence in rap with some subjective storytelling and detailed explanation of Rich’s fantasy encounter with porn star Anna Bell Peaks.

Enjoy Pigkaso’s new single below and pick up Something Different on iTunes today.

Ni$any - Skip Day

With high school behind him and a major scholarship ahead of him, Ni$any seems to be skyrocketing when it comes to grind to success.

But after recently performing in Queens, NY for Dipset legend Hell Rell 4 days ago, the young MC has nowhere to go but up. And after unearthing a sample-heavy, trap-like gem live on stage this past Friday in today’s feature, Ni$any seemingly is lining up his bubbling career perfectly. With the release of his latest project $ales out now, check out “Skip Day” below.

Phoelix - Timmy Turner (Desiigner's XXL Freestyle Remix)


While XXL Freshman Desiigner has become a energetic ball of viral fandom from his hit single "Panda", his selection on the famed cover, and his over the top performance at BET's annual award show last night, it's his diverse and deep double meaning to his 36-second freestyle for XXL that has everyone talking.

Taking the momentum in his own hands, Chicago-native Phoelix decides to slow it down a tempo or two and finesses smoothly with Desiigner's raspy voice to create this very jazzy remix to what's now being called "Timmy Turner".

Grant our wish, and please listen below.
