Both of these tracks can be found on Uncle TreY’s latest project nostalgianticipation, where you can find it available at ItsBetterThanMusic.com. Pretty dope that Gold Haze produced both of these tracks.
MOJO, is perfect for the summer time. Uncle TreY talks about how he got his confidence back. He tells us a story how things started and how it turns out, with a specific girl. And how they even try to come back in his life after so long of not communicating with them. The hook is catchy, and has me singing along.
SUMMER LOVE takes us back on a summer love he’s reminiscing about someone he hooked up with. Throughout the track Uncle TreY kinda focus on a specific listener, the one who he experienced that love affair with. Uncle TreY’s flow is on point and the content is very descriptive.

[TORONTO] Making his debut on NikkiSiixx.com, we have hip-hop artist KonFiiDent with his latest music video for his single SCHEMIN’. Nothing ends good when someone is scheming. KonFiiDent discusses the topic of envy and jealously. The video brings us a view from an outside perception of a relationship that seems all good until, the girl starts to become suspicious of KonFiiDent. Looking at his phone and putting it away and then she ends up finding an address. Only thinking of the worse she can’t help the curiosity and needs to confront KonFiiDent. I personally think the visual is too good to be this short! Be on the lookout for more content from Toronto’s own KonFiiDent. [FOLLOW HIM ON TWITTER]

Making his debut on NikkiSiixx.com, Chicago native Austin Fillmore brings us his latest EP Hear & Now. The eight track project has some gems and I feel that Austin Fillmore is making his mark. Austin Fillmore grew an intense passion for music and once he hit 7th grade he embarked on developing and mastering his skill of rap. Once as an adult he began collaborating with long time friends and producers 12 tone and Hank Iving, later he dropped his debut LP Anglishh back in February 2014. The following year he released his sophmore project Sinful Nature in September 2015. And we have this year with his EP Hear & Now.
I’ll be reviewing my favorite tracks off Austin Fillmore EP Hear & Now. So far I like Good Times, 5000, Matrix, Me You And Trouble, P.V.O, and Running Sh%t. Here’s what I thought about the EP:
[01. GOOD TIMES] You know when you hear a single and you know it’s a hit? Well, I instantly felt this way when I heard GOOD TIMES by Austin Fillmore. Perfect choice to start off the EP. Austin has a positive aspect on life and it reflects itself in his music. From a dope flow and a catchy hook this one has to be a fan favorite.
[02. 5000] This track here is definitely the club banger! With heavy bass brought to you by the amazing production by Snapbackondatrack. Austin maintains his realness with his wholesomeness. All Austin wants everyone to be okay, no matter what they do or say.
[04. MATRIX] Here’s where Austin Fillmore and featured artist Joey G puts the listening in a trance, somewhat like the Matrix. Very powerful sounds by producer Hank Iving. I think its pretty unique to have a slow down trap vibe with a dash of pop to it. Not sure if I’m describing it accurately but that’s what I get from this track.
[05. ME, YOU, AND TROUBLE] Austin provides hypnotic melodies over the seductive production by Jasper MacRae. I’m debating wether of not the track is my favorite off the Hear & Now EP. Track for the hopeless romantic. In a relationship it may seem you have the world against you, but it doesn’t matter cause you have each other.
[06. P.V.O (Positive Vibes Only)] According to Austin Fillmore it’s all about the positive vibes. His flow is on point with the production by NobilityIam. I really like this hook, “Nothing in this life is free, I do this for you and me, It’s all real no make believe, I’m the only thing you need”. Austin Fillmore provides the right vibe on his Hear & Now EP.
[08. Running Sh%t (Owl Wanted)] On the last track Fillmore decided to show his rough side. Super tough on his lyrics and tone in his flow. You can say Austin was really confident on this track. I can see this being played in a club or house party setting. Like Let’s Get Crunk!
“I’m finally speaking on all the things in life that have meaning and furthermore, sometimes painful to express. – Austin Fillmore
This concludes my review of Hear & Now EP brought to you by Austin Fillmore. The overall vibe of this project is meant to put you in a good mood wether your at the club or chilling with your friends, or even having an intimate moment with your girl. Hear & Now is meant for the night owls. If you’re diggin’ Austin Fillmore’s EP as much as I am, make sure you show your support by following him on all his social media outlets below! Stay Connected:
