Marti - Grey Matter (Freestyle) [Prod by Jeffrey Rashad]

If you ever have been to a Bombay Knox event before this year then you know Mi$Fit Marti. Over the past few year Marti has been growing as an artist, whether she is designing, organizing, modeling or now music, Marti has been making major strides. When she first sent me this track I had a brief idea of what to expect based off of unreleased tracks she has played for me, but this far exceeded my expectations. She has a beautiful voice reminiscent of classically trained singers from the 50s/early 60s. Were excited to see what she releases next, check out the freestyle and her explanation for the track below. -  JR

'Grey Matter was made in the wake of the Freddy Gray uprising and numerous other acts of violence plaguing this world. You will hear me cry, mumble and at times wrongly hit notes. I wouldn't have it any other way. As an artist it is important to show our imperfections. Art lives; Life is imperfect, ever-changing.

So I present to you the ever growing entity; myself.'

Robb Banks - 2Phoneshawty (EP) & No Trespassing (Collab EP with Chris Travis)

Miami native Robb Bank$ quietly dropped some heat this week - but both projects are anything but quiet. 

After a few months of being relatively under the radar, 2PHONESHAWTY immediately throws himself back in the spotlight with a solo mixtape (2phoneshawty) and an EP with Memphian Waterboyz member Chris Travis (No Trespassing).

With an intro that lets you know exactly where Bank$ comes from (just in case you forgot), 2phoneshawty boasts the same unrelenting flow that you would expect from the young hip-hop antagonist over dark percussion-heavy beats. The tracks fluctuate between intense hard-hitting trap joints where he recklessly attacks your ears and constantly reminds you that he isn't someone to fuck with, and slower leaned-out tunes that, while soothing, relay that same message to similar effect.

No Trespassing is Bank$ and Travis's first collaborative project - a collection of 5 tracks including two (Adlib & Solid) that they put out in December and February, respectively. 

 

"Still that nigga
Still dead resurrected
It's the best nigga past or present
"

The chemistry between the two is instantly clear as Bank$'s angry yet lowkey delivery is contrasted by Travis's hypnotic higher-pitched reverb-heavy vocals. The baton goes back and forth as they ride the 808s with a smoothness reminiscent of Eightball & MJG. That classic southern flow dives deep into the dark synthy atmosphere that they've created - a place where they're just as likely to hype you up as they are to chill you the fuck out.

Both projects are available for free download so long as you tweet about them through PayWithATweet, a simple promotion feature that definitely needs to gain more traction in the realm of music.

Left to Right: Black Smurf, Ruby Da Cherry aka (Suicide Leopard), Yung Christ aka (Slick Sloth, etc etc etc etc etc)

Shortly after their stint on the Yung Smokey Tour which ended in this January, the G*59 duo $uicide Christ and $uicide Leopard has been aggressively churning out track after track and collaborations with Eddy Baker and California based rapper RVMIRXZ and three mix tapes under the Kill Your$elf saga within the past month. Taking advantage of the opportunity to work with former tour mate and East Memphis rapper Black Smurf. Blessing us with a visual and the EP Black Suicide, with the title track "Black Suicide" already garnering over 30k in listens only two days after its initial release. Definitely one of the many acts that I have been keeping tabs on and their production embodies whats really attractive in the DC underground.
