[NORTH LAUDERDALE, FL] Making his debut on NikkiSiixx.com, we have hip-hop artist DaShawn Watson with his latest single SLIDE. This track is very refreshing! DaShawn Watson flow sounds crisp! The production reminds me of what Miami sounds like. What do you guys think about SLIDE by DaShawn Watson? Interested in more? SLIDE will be off his upcoming project called Don’t Be So Emotional, which DaShawn Watson is currently working on finalizing it. Stay tuned!
[BOYNTON BEACH, FLORIDA] Making his return on NikkiSiixx.com, we have hip-hop artist VC Da Menace with his latest single KING, featuring Remy Knight. VC Da Menace touches on topics about keeping a king’s mentality when handing issues, police brutality, and doing what you want with your life. Here’s a fact about VC Da Menace besides being an aspiring Artist, he can also produce a mean beat! VC is a SAE Miami Graduate. KING was actually produced by VC Da Menace himself! I really like the quality of the overall sound the track presents itself. And a pretty cool twist at the end giving it a bit of EDM. If you’re digging VC Da Menace you gotta stay in the loop and follow him on all his social media accounts.
[MIAMI, FLORIDA] Growing up in different neighborhoods from North Miami Beach, to Overtown, to Perrine, and even down to Homestead. Lamont was living and dealing with the struggles of living in the inner city. Even witnessing his parents battle drug addiction which gave him the strength to vow to never sell those drugs under any kind of circumstance. This is where Lamont truly began developing himself as a person. Currently, Lamont has released his Respect My Grind project that consists of five tracks. I gotta say that Respect My Grind was very well put together. Project credits from recorded by Lifer Entertainment, Mixed by D.Shim Productions, and Executive Produced by Lamont himself. Respect My Grind has a powerful vivid honesty that goes well with his empathetic lyrics. Lamont starts with Disclaimer, bringing that hardcore side of himself with the grittiness of his flow. Then Lamont brings with his next track MASHED POTATOES. Feel with R&B vibes and a catchy hook. A track to get your girl in the mood. The following track is entitled ANOTHER YEAR, which is dedicated to all the people you know who are no longer here. Its like we need to celebrate cause we’re here for another year. Another dope track with those R&B vibes. Then Lamont takes us to church with his track LORD KNOWS. Lamont goes in on this one, he describes a woman asking why they took her baby, he was killed from violence on the street. RESPECT MY GRIND is more of a fun, soulful track where Lamont gives you his back story and let’s you know the only way to work is going the hardest. My favorite tracks are Disclaimer, Mashed Potatoes, and Another Year. But my all time favorite track has to be MASHED POTATOES, because how catchy it is and his flow is sick on this one. Your left impressed with his capability to flow on these different sounding tracks. Lamont did a mixture of sampled and boom-bap beats. Respect The Grind is worth the listen since Lamont is standing up in his artistry and expressing himself the best way he knows how, and that’s through his music. Be on the look out for more releases from Lamont by following his social media links.
[LITTLE HAVANA MIAMI, FL] ER305 releases his latest installment to his #AnyGivenSundays series with BACK DOOR. ER305 expresses how he’s going to take over the rap scene and regardless of previous fallouts, he’s working hard on a different approach. Hard Crunk brought to you by Metro Boomin Producer. I feel ER305 is mean on this one. BACK DOOR serves as either a good introduction to anyone not familiar with ER’s music or a reintroduction to anyone who has been missing out on his Any Given Sundays campaign. ER305 is set to release his upcoming EP by next month. Be on the look out for more updates via ER305 social media accounts.
JAMESCOLD is an upcoming R&B/Hip-Hop artist that was born and raised in New York City but currently resides in the beautiful sunny state of Florida. Inspired by the change and adaptation to a new culture JAMESCOLD presented his first EP titled Ocala. The style and grace of Ocala, embraces that dark and mellow sounds. I sense Drake/Weekend vibes throughout the project, it’s definitely worth a listen! JAMESCOLD goal is to put Ocala on the map in recognition for it’s musical talent that’s constantly over looked for being a small city. Executive Produced By James Cole and featured producers included Patchrickk, Kelly Portis, Yung Frank, and Wonya Love. My favorite tracks from the Ocala EP are The Motion, Overdose, OrdinaryAllAmerican, Running, and The Come Up. Be on the lookout on more content from JAMESCOLD!

Last time we brought you ChristinΞ it was with her Instrumental EP Betty “Moe” Trezza. This time I’m bringing you a collaborating between ChristinΞ and DGRZZL titled EMINENCE. The 11 track album definitely is worth the listen. The chemistry between ChristinΞ and DGRZZL is enchanting. DGRZZL is a writer/MC from ATL, GA as ChristinΞ is the producer reppin’ Miami, New York, and Georgia. EMINENCE was mastered by Chip Williams from Miami Beat Wave. Love listening to this project, some of my favorite tracks are FORGET, BALANCE, LAST TIME, and TO KNOW YOU IS TO LOVE YOU. Really love ChristinΞ style with her beats still maintaining a hip-hop essence with some soul and jazz. Especially in the production for TO KNOW YOU IS TO LOVE YOU it’s beautiful! The violin gives it such purity. Also, with the track FORGET DGRZZL states these lines and I think their pretty dope “I don’t even smoke but I’ll roll one up and then regret it, we live and we learn and then we learn to forget it…learn to forget it” and KOI’s voice in the intro and throughout the track was just flawless. You have to take a listen to the entire project to truly appreciate it. Check it out now via the player above!
Together we are ChristinΞ χ DGRZZL

Check out 17 year old producer Schedule One with his exclusive multi-genre project featuring 10 hard hitting beats plus 5 bonus EDM tracks titled Existence Instrumentals. Schedule One has that Trap/Club feel to it. With them killer 808s! Definitely can see these tracks getting picked up by any artist. Existence features co-producers include Dizzy Wright’s Sub-Zer0 and South African producer Paapi Musik.
TRAP MUSIC incorporates a extensive use of multi-layered hard-lined and melodic synthesizers, crisp, grimy and rhythmic snares, deep 808 sub-bass kick drums, pitched down vocals, double-time, triple-time and similarly divided hi-hats, and a cinematic and symphonic utilization of string and keyboard instruments creating an overall dark, harsh, grim and bleak background feeling for the listener
Minnesota Local Hip-Hop Artist DeSean P, currently resides in Miami, FL to pursue his dreams in becoming a successful artist. Recently, DeSean P releases a visual for his track TOUCH YOUR SOUL, which is on his official mixtape wRapping Papers that released this passed March. The video takes us into an intimate setting where DeSean P gets hypnotize by these beautiful women. Love the lighting and slow-mo which really gets you in the setting. …”we don’t have to take it slow, baby!” This music video was captured by Young Wild Panda Productions. They were able to portray that raw emotion within this song. TOUCH YOUR SOUL is meant for that special women in your life. Especially if you’re on that intimate note with her as well. But I really did like that switch up in DeSean P tone, last verse. It get’s crazy!
