To follow up his initial single “New Day” featuring FowL, Gino delivers the second single off The Keynote and it comes with features from fellow Michigan natives Isaac Castor (formerly Gameboi) and the newest Aftermath signee, Jon Connor. Once again, Kinetic provides a great soundscape that gives off a vibe of a 2013 version of boom-bap production. Expect Gino’s project to drop next month.
After finishing his run on a mini tour with Action Bronson, TFHOUSE had the opportunity to tour nationwide with Mac Miller. He’s already dropped an EP titled Young Desperado, but now TFHOUSE is ready to evolve with his latest single, which is self-produced. The track provides a woozy, hypnotic vibe and is only a small preview of what we can expect when Limbo is released in February.
18-year-old London MC, Shane Chubbz is here with his newest visuals as he prepares for the release of his upcoming project ’95 And Forever, which is due out by the end of the year.

Formerly known as Gameboi, the 18-year-old MC from Ann Arbor has turned a page in his career and is now going by the God-given name on his birth certificate, Isaac Castor. Michigan-based producer Kinetic laces young Castor with a raw, grimy backdrop that creates the perfect setting for the single named after one of the most villainous alter-egos ever put into existence. “Heisenberg” is the first single off Isaac’s upcoming project High Art, which is due the first quarter of 2014. Take a listen below.
Sikai returns and he’s got his own version of Drake’s “Pound Cake” locked and loaded. The Connecticut MC puts a strangle hold on the eerie production, which serves as a reminder of his talent for those who missed the release of his recent project, Painkilling: Summertime Sick.
Baltimore MC Malik Ferraud comes through with Emilio Rojas for his latest single, produced by Spencer Brown. Malik and Rojas trade bars, while providing a current version of raw boom-bap hip-hop talent. This is the first single off Ferraud’s upcoming project, which is due later this fall/winter. Directed by Rex Arrow.
After the official release of his newest single last week, Amor Jones returns with the accompanying visuals for “Money 2 Make,” which features West Covina, CA MC Hawdwerk, while production is tackled by Missouri-based beatsmith D-Pro. “Money 2 Make” is a track about trying to balance life while still taking care of your responsibilities and chasing your dreams. The visuals shot by EP bring everything full circle and provide a down-to-earth sense of reality, adding to the honesty of Jones’ single. You’ll be able to find this one on Amor’s upcoming project Beautiful Ignorance, due out September 24th.
Dave Raps returns with new visuals for “Annexation of Puerto Rico” which finds him giving us some trippy off-paced optics, while riding over SpaceGhostPurrp’s “Black God” instrumental. This serves as a prelude of sorts to his upcoming #DaveDaze series, where Dave will give us 20 new tracks in 20 consecutive days starting September 23rd, leading up to the release of his new project In The Valley. Sounds like things will get interesting.
Up and coming MC Gino The Ghost connects with fellow Michigan native FowL for the first single off his upcoming project The Keynote. “Next Day.” produced by Kinetic, finds Gino and FowL going back and forth seamlessly, almost like these two were meant to make music together all along.
