Gems - Scars

Ever since Uno Hype performed with this earlier this year at U Street Music Hall I have been completely infatuated with DC duo GEMS. They have a sound unique to them that has been described as "Dream-wave/shadow-pop" amongst other things. If you haven't listened to Gems before check out this track and make sure to check them out on tour this summer with Hundred Waters.

Spooky Black - Without You (Official Music Video)

I'll admit im probably late on this but Spooky Black is a dope singer out of St. Paul, Minnesota. To answer your questions off the bat, yes he is wearing a durag pretty much the whole video, as well as a matching outfit for each durag and a rare Fubu jersey, and video at first glance reminds you of Yung Lean, however do not compare him to Yung Lean. This kid can flat out sing, some may call it simp music, which may have some truth but once you peep this video and his soundcloud your not gonna be able to take Spooky Black out of rotation. I am looking forward to what this kid does next. - JR
