#Check Out B-doe "Street Ligths" ft Keturah on #DGMDigitalDistribution @thatshowitbdoe @dgm_ent
Hailing from Baltimore, Maryland, B-doe (government name: Brandon Thomas) is already known for his talented rhymes and unassuming demeanor. An artist who started creating his own hip hop music at the young age of 10, B-doe has a dream to bring hip hop back to how it used to be; hip hop with content, substance, and dope lyricism. You are probably wondering where he got his name. He says "In Baltimore we're used to murders on the news” and a common response of resignation to the repeated crime is saying “that’s how it be though.” Local articulation of the last two quoted words is phonetically “b-doe,” hence how Brandon acquired his stage name.
Kanye West's image and reputation has long outgrown the music and fashion industries he is known for, and into a sociopolitical world that influences Black people in the U.S. and abroad. Now, as he strengthens his connection to President Donald Trump, Kanye may have a tangible impact on the Black community. Are these the machinations of a political or corporate strategist? Or is Kanye West simply trolling us all?

Producer-singer-songwriter-DJ-everything else rhêtorík bares his soul on ‘Behind Closed Doors.’ The EP is a sum of his whimsy and his triumphs, a showcase of his insecurities, but also a promise to himself and to his fans that there will be light in their lives. Across five songs and in 20 minutes, rhêtorík makes quick work of what hurts him and how he’s learned to heal himself.
“I took a year from 24 to 25, where I went completely stone-cold sober, really got into the vlogging, and just took a year of internal reflection,” he told DJBooth. His reflections led him to question himself and his motives, and ‘Behind Closed Doors’ is the immediate product of his weighty introspection. The indie-meets-EDM influences on the project undoubtedly move music forward, but it’s rhêtorík’s hopeful message that makes him a truly enduring artist.
Young Sheck Wes took over hip-hop with his now-massive single, “Mo Bamba.” The rising Harlem rapper went on to deliver a series of brick singles, sign with Kanye West and Travis Scott, and summon an immense amount of hype for his debut album ‘MUDBOY.’ With virality in his corner, Wes faced the daunting task of proving he is not a one-hit-wonder.
Enter: ‘MUDBOY,’ a debut album that supplants Sheck Wes’ viral success without painting in uninspired strokes. ‘MUDBOY’ is, thankfully, not an album filled with “Mo Bamba” type tracks, nor is it a series of sloppy pivots in search of another smash hit. The album is a coming-of-age story told over hot and harrowing trap production, with Wes employing a breadth of deliveries, demanding we notice and respect his range. Wes gives us stories of his childhood and Senegalese culture on “Never Lost,” and still worms in a riotous anthem with “Gmail.” With ‘MUDBOY,’ Sheck Wes proves that he is no one-hit-wonder; he’s getting really rich, though.
Lifestyles of The Lit & Shameless EP by Shaun ESKO
He raps “I’m a product of the ghetto I’m just trying to find my way”
He indeed finds his way by providing a mixture of eclectic sounds and lyrics while skillfully boasting over the soundscape to deliver an experience like no other.
After MGK sent shots Eminem's way with "Rap Devil," Em is ready to fire back with an eviscerating cut. "KILLSHOT" is exactly that, a diss track featuring Eminem tapping into his signature anger and going for MGK's throat by way of advanced wordplay. While the game is constantly changing, even in the forum of a diss track, Eminem keeps finding new ways of moving music forward.
Em hits Kells where it hurts, clowning everything from his career to his fashion sense, to his attempts at starting beef with Bay Area rapper G-Eazy. Did Eminem take out MGK with this one? Press play and find out which artist is walking away from this beef as the victor.
