Digging In The Crates – Number 4.
Grab the sonic shovels because I’m back with my listening cap absorbing the submissions of recent months. It’s the fourth installment of DetroitRap.com’s “Digging In The Crates“. This is where I display my favorite findings via direct submissions to the site, random discoveries online, or artists I might have caught opening up in recent shows I’ve attended. In each edition I shine light on five different artists that brought something intriguing to the table & in which I felt was worthy to share with our readers! Let us know what you think of these picks in the comments or drop suggestions for future editions. The first spot here in DITC #4 is via Sol’Le with her record “Scotty“.
Sol’Le is new to the scene but the Detroit rapper/singer caught my attention with this particular submission. The simple video follows her displaying her musical abilities traversing through one’s home in a subtle attention grabbing manner. She’s at work on upcoming music & set to perform in Europe soon after releasing. Here is the video for her single “Scotty“.
It’s the middle of these crates but the digging isn’t stopping. This next one came from word of mouth. My good friend Anthony hit me up when he came across a friend of MCXI out on his grind. We connected dots & his team sent over some samples. His most recent effort comes across his six track ep “No Pawns“. The audio quality is crispy which I can’t emphasize enough but he has knack for finding beats that mash well with his abilities. It’s a short and punctual listen that left me with an memorable impression. I even “dig” the artwork being a graphic junkie low-key. A pleasant referral that definitely placed MCXI on my radar, I can definitely see this having a wide appeal.
Digging In The Crates, Vol. 2
With another week comes another dig! Join me as I go shoveling through the digital crates of past submissions & showcase five of my favorite finds in this weeks edition of Digging In The Crates! Throwbacks & lost gems are on the menu with our first lyrical meal via the likes of hometown emcee J Howw who sent in this raw introspective life rhyme ish way back in 2015. I love when I see these younger artists embrace the art form on some real life rhyming. Forgive me for not knowing him, but this was the first time I heard J Howw & I enjoyed the first track & video he sent “Stay Lowkey” so much I went looking for more. It just so happens the second track I come across “My Generation” featuring Donni Luchi stood out even more to me. An anti-generational social commentary in rap form from 2017, made me decide to start things off a bit different in this edition. I was feeling these tracks so much I’m gonna give J Howw two of this week’s five Digging In The Crates spots. So here goes: the crates prove worthy of another week!
Ahh...refreshing, but now back to searching, scavenging for eardrum gold! As I click, click ,click amongst these digital crates, my next selection brought me to Kenyatta Rashon from Ypsilanti, MI. The singer sent in “Push” feat. Pinnacle Ent. back in 2016! I imagine hearing this one on your fm radio stations & Kenyatta Rashon flexes her vocal range while carrying a great energy across the song. Pinnacle Ent. comes in with a couple verses towards the end & overall bring a close to an enjoyable record.
