Brandon Fox – Facing Temptation / Bleeds For The People

After the birth of his beautiful baby boy following a rough couple of months, it’s understandable that Brandon Fox would take a little bit of time off. Now, he’s back and ready to deliver. On Facing Temptation, Brandon took the music back to the root by relying on a lonely guitar and drum pattern, which really allows him to shine. With Bleeds for the People, he ups the ante a bit to deliver an inspiring message. This is your year Fox, glad to have you back in the game.

Also, Brandon was featured on a banger with Taylor Bennett, Shay Lewis and Donnie Trumpet called Dancing in the Rain. If you snoozed on that, press play below.

Marvelous – N***a I’m The Shit


The good folks over at Private Stock have once again laced me with some new heat that y’all need to hear. Introducing Marvelous. He’s a Chicago bred 25 year old rookie to the game, and he’s ready to play. With a tightly crafted Serious Beats, this serves as a perfect introduction to the gruff voiced MC. Honestly, he had me at that Haitian reference, but I’m sure there’s something in here for you as well. Press play.

Felly – This Shit Comes In Waves (album)

Felly - This Shit Comes In Waves cover

Following up the Don’t Change video and the release of the title track, Felly is ready to unleash 17 tracks of wavy vibes to the masses. The production is smooth throughout, and the lyrics are definitely on point. I’m guessing this will get plenty of spins  throughout the rest of the summer. If you are at work, you can stream it below, or you can click here to download the whole thing.

Saba – Temporary ft. Tink

Saba - Temporary

It’s been a while since we heard new heat from Saba, so this is a joyous occasion. Linking up with another quickly rising Chicago artist Tink, this smooth number really gives me a Fugees Ready or Not kind of vibe, which is a great thing. If you’re in the NYC area, be sure to check out the first New York concert for Saba and a few other Chicago artists (Hurt Everybody, NoName Gypsy and XVRHLDY) coming at you live from SOB’s on the 23rd!
