[CHICAGO, IL – ATLANTA, GA] Going through the submissions I unfold DSmithXIII with his single FACES. DSmithXIII takes an optimistic approach towards negative situations that occur. Starting off with feeling amazing and honoring your talents. I really like the energy and flow he presented off this track. FACES is one of the singles off DSmithXIII project XIII: Stories Never Told. In 2015 he made the move to Atlanta, GA to take advantage of new opportunities that was presented to him, bringing his unique sound to Atlanta and putting on for the city of Chicago everywhere he goes.

[ATLANTA/ST.LOUIS] We got another dope track by Tommy Swisher with his latest single FALLING. He presents us with a visual, this video was really dope so I had to share. Tommy Swisher falls into the woods and trying to get out he comes across a woman in white, who is she and does she know the way out? Tommy can be seen in the video running for his life. You can find FALLING on his latest EP Hi, Im Tommy Swisher. FALLING was produced by Ego, directed by Tommy Swisher shot/edited By Relifecreations. For some reason this line stands out to me, “Trying to Control The Earth, Mother Nature Do Me Favors, Cause She Like My Purpose..Now Light the Earth“. Stay tuned for more from Tommy Swisher!
[ATLANTA, GEORGIA] Indie Rapper John The Profit releases his latest single An Eastside Story. Currently working on his future release this fall entitled THE GOD BODY SCIENCE.

And sometimes these people are dealing with similar things you’re going through. This track was also produced by John The Profit himself. (Love the bass)
WHAT MAKES ME DIFFERENT? My Journey; I produce all of my music and learned most of what i know about music production from Interning for Outkast and studying behind Ray Murray from Organized Noize during recording sessions. – JOHN THE PROFIT
[ATLANTA/ST.LOUIS] Check it Tommy Swisher makes his way back on NikkiSiixx.com with his latest visual NETFLIX & BREWS. The concept of the video is that Tommy Swisher reminisces on his college days where you see his cleaning up the spot while his friends are still there, while his a waiting his girl guest to come over. I like how the visual gave us the sense of a live studio audience sitcom. With the audience laughing when he’s trying to get his friends outta there. Even funnier when his friend that’s asleep takes a while to get up. You see Tommy Swisher get his company some brews while they get comfortable to watch some Netflix. NETFLIX & BREWS was directed by TheGuyVeezy and the beat was produced by E.Wonder. Tommy Swisher has been busy since he recently got off from opening up for TDE artist Sza out in Dallas, Texas.
[ATLANTA, GA]J.Reign releases his latest music video WRONG WIT ME, featuring Nico Barz and Tre Dolla. J.Reign was born and raised in Chicago, but once he turned 18 he moved with his mother to his new city of Atlanta. WRONG WIT ME is a track about learning how to not stress out over things you can’t control. The visual takes us to what seems to be an abandoned building with graffiti all over the walls. J.Reign, Nico Barz, and Tre Dolla are reciting their lines, while we have a woman dance to the music. It was cool how they added her into some of the scenes. They even had some fire effects behind her. J.Reign has also been at work recording a new LP titled Hat Trick which is hosted by the one and only “Jack Thriller” (Comedian). Also he has been busy collaborating on videos as well, including this video for WRONG WIT ME. Which is the new single off his Reign Gretzky: Hat Trick mixtape which is going live early August. Be on the look out!

Above photo is the official poster for The Walking Dead Season Six. This screams intensity. Why is Rick all up in Morgan’s face? The poster depicts Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) and Morgan Jones (Lennie James) including Daryl (Norman Reedus), Michonne (Danai Gurira) and Carol (Melissa McBride), stand to the left of Rick and Morgan while Father Gabriel (Seth Gilliam), Deanna Monroe (Tovah Feldshuh), Aaron (Ross Marquand), Jessie (Alexandra Breckenridge) and Spencer Monroe (Austin Nichols) stand to the right. Still inside Alexandria walls. The way that season five ended was a complete shocker. And how different the two groups are because of everything they’ve been through. But what can possibly happen next? Oh yeah? Remember those W’s on the Walkers Heads and the wicked setup from the loners who seek revenge? It seems to be Season Six will involve them considering I found this other promotional poster for Season Six. It’s about to be war! Below you will be able to watch an exclusive behind the scenes footage with Abraham (Michael Cudlitz) speaking with Sonequa Martin-Green, Lennie James, and Danai Gurira. There’s even a surprise at the end of this clip, where Norman Reedus lands a huge kiss on Danai. Can I assume Michonne & Daryl are hooking up? Stay tuned for this fall October where AMC will air Season Six of The Walking Dead. So excited! Can’t wait for this EPIC return. WEBSITE

KasFlow is a 20-year-old Atlanta MC that has never hesitated in telling his loyal listeners how he feels. Well, with his latest cut, “Waiting 4 The Blow Up,” Kas is fairly pissed but mostly focused and prepared. Standing in the forefront of his TNC (The Nayborhood Clubhouse) crew, the dread-headed artist probably faces a lot of pressure. He has had countless tracks with plenty of plays and receives good blog coverage. Of course there is much more to being an artist, but for the most part this kid is checking off all of the necessary boxes needed to actually “blow up.” Therefore, it makes sense that KasFlow addresses the fact that he hasn’t quite taken off in a slightly aggressive, but ironically patient manner. His new offering is produced by David Greene and features fellow TNC artist Mal Pacino. The two artists get a bit introspective as they discuss their come up, and keep the essence of hip-hop by spitting some braggadocios bars that will be sure to give you quote for you Twitter bio. Stream KasFlow’s dope new single below! theRUNNA mixtape is coming soon.
