D.C. to LA based artist Imad Royal who we heard on single "Passenger" is a multitalented artist who is not only a gifted singer, but also expands his skillset as a producer and songwriter. We have the pleasure of premiering his first track of 2016 as a collaboration with New Orleans’ rapper Pell.
“Down For Whatever” is a dreamy, blissful track brightened by airy synths and a hip hop instrumental with trap style hi hats and kick drums allowing the uplifting vocals lay atop seemingly effortless as the falsetto vocals shine on the catchy chorus. Pell hops on the track with a groovy verse showing why he’s an exciting new rapper on the rise as he rounds out the vibe of this pleasant tune. As a former refugee, Iman’s situation inspired him to not waste time, so kick back and enjoy the uplifting vibes he brings on this colorful single.
Herobust has been releasing hit after hit and he's showing absolutely no signs of slowing down. We last featured his twerk-inciting trap banger "Booty Be Like" and "Dirty Work" shortly before that. Now with the support of Diplo's label Mad Decent, Atlanta producer Herobust releases his new I'm Aloud EP.
Loaded with previously heard bangers like the hilariously punny "Skurt Reynolds" and "Bottle Swervice" the Atlanta trap star keeps his southern roots thriving. With all vocals being delivered by Herobust himself, the producer lays down classic anthemic lines fit for the latest Atlanta rap hit.
Staying in line with his fusion of trap and dubstep you'll hear nowhere else, the album is a nonstop bass party best played at very high volumes. Though Herobust throws in a surprise with the last track on the EP called "Weigh Home." Switching up the sound, he throws in a bit of a lighter, smoother track to close out the project. Steam and download I"m Aloud below. Enjoy.

The highly anticipated collaboration between Wiz Khalifa and Travis Scott has been been released and is exactly what we were hoping for! This new track is titled "Bake Sale" and is the lead single off Wiz’s forthcoming album Khalifa, due February 5th and gives us our first glimpse into the project.
“Bake Sale” is a catchy weed hip-hip song in which Travis offers his autotune singing in a melody that will certainly get stuck in your head while Wiz holds it down with his stoner inspired verses. Produced by TM88, Juicy J, Lex Luger, DJ Spinz, & Crazy Mike, this beat was previously used by G Eazy on “Order More” off his album, but credits different producers. The rumbling, bouncing, eerie beat with trap percussion sets the foundation for a hit as we now have a full album from Wiz to look forward to.
