In case you haven’t been paying attention, Miami’s slowly but surely becoming one of America’s hip-hop epicenters. But behind the glitz or trap life that many associate with Miami lies a hip-hop scene as dope as any. Don’t believe me? That’s fine, just sit back and watch the city’s finest Succeed. For their latest effort the aptly-named Miami Beat Wave cook up a soulful instrumental that fellow Floridians ArtOfficial, Omniscient, DaVincci and the Grammy nominated band Locos Por Juana marinate into an anthem not just for their hometown, but for anyone working to put themselves (and their city) on the map.
The new album by 6lack, East Atlanta Love Letter, enters the Sum'n to Say discussion colosseum. We dig into the heart of his sophomore offering, praise the inventive drive-in movie listening party, and consider what the East Atlanta Love Letter can possibly do next.
