On Wax: Rich The Kid + More
ON WAX IS A WEEKLY TAKE UPDATING YOU ON THE POCKET OF CULTURE KNOWN AS HIP-HOP. WE BRING YOU EVERYTHING FROM BREAKING NEWS TO ALBUM DROPS, JAIL TIME AND WHO’S BEEFING WITH WHO.
Rich The Kid Releases The World Is Yours 2
Not taking anytime off, Rich The Kid delivers the sequel to last year’s The World Is Yours. The World Is Yours 2 is not much of an abandonment of the NY born ATL based artist. The production is much of the current trap landscape, but includes some smoother R&B cuts. The project is also very feature heavy with artists from Big Sean, Young Thug, Lil Pump and Offset, to R&B artists like Ty Dolla $ign and Miguel. Overall, the project is something that is too much of the same, but if you enjoy trap, give it a listen.
Logic vs. Social Media
Logic drops a new single titled “Confessions of a Dangerous Mind.” On the track, he goes through hatred he sees on social media and attempts to flip it into something positive. The beat is clean, and Logic raps in his typical fast flows. Overall, it’s one of Logic’s better tracks, and hopefully he can continue on this streak of good music.
Kevin Gates Changes it Up
Releasing a video for the song “RWGN,” Kevin Gates gives us exactly we what we anticipated— a good track with some decent lyricism. What makes Kevin Gates special is that you will often find yourself not entirely drawn to him, yet you can’t stop vibing with his music. While “RWGN” may not be it, there’s no reason to not expect more from this Baton Rouge native.
Tierra Whack Keeps it Coming
After having a major 2018 with her debut, Whack World, Tierra Whack continues to drop music. Her fifth single of 2019, “Unemployed,” showcases her rapping abilities over a hard-hitting beat. It’s most definitely one of her best singles of the bunch so far.
Injury Reserve Makes More Heat with Aminé
Experimental hip-hop group, Injury Reserve, has dropped a new banger called “Jailbreak the Tesla.” The song most definitely goes hard as fuck and features Aminé. Previously, Injury Reserve was featured on Aminé’s single, “Campfire.” It’s great to see him return the feature, and drop fire.
Luh Soldier + Quoncho
Luh Soldier linked with Quoncho for a track that you can bob your head to, but its not anything you haven’t seen before. Although, it’s consistent and goes exactly where you expect it to at every moment.
DaBaby Stays Up
One new artist who started picking up steam late last year (and doesn’t seem to be halting) is DaBaby. Releasing track after track, DaBaby is not only making sure the camera is on him, he’s making sure it stays on him. Check him out now.
Maxo hits back with another track, joining arms with Ghost Magneto and BG Kenny Lou for “Trap Relays.” There is little in the song that you probably haven’t heard before, as this generation bleeds out exactly how its style orchestrates. Nonetheless, if you’ve been waiting for Maxo to make a comeback, wait no longer…
Until next time, it’s On Wax.
