Hip Hop Radar (Week Of 3/29-4/4)

SCOTTY ATL  – Traffic Jamz
Scotty ATL (@ScottyATL) gives a cool Atlanta sound once again on Traffic Jamz, the nine (9) track EP that can be played from start to finish. With production by K.E. On The Track, DJ Toomp, and even Scotty ATL himself the tape is definitely worth a listen or two. A few features include Big K.R.I.T., B.o.B., and London Jae.

SUGGESTIONS: “Keith Sweat”, “The Hangover”, “Greatest Story Ever Told
RATING: 5 of 5

DUKE CONTRAIL –  Still Pledging
Long Beach’s Duke Contrail (@Duke_Contrail) presents us with Still Pledging. It’s understated, akin to Kendrick Lamar at times. His smooth flow is engaging and tells an amazing story on each and every track. There is an almost hypnotic quality to both the production and the delivery. It’s certainly a tape to check for if you're into a more jazz infused sound.

SUGGESTIONS: “Still Pledging”, “Sean Jamerson”, “Greatful Sinners
RATING: 5 of 5

Chynna Chameleon - Split Personality
Another California resident, the complete opposite of the previous tape. Chynna Chameleon (@ChynnaChamaleon) offers both amazing vocals and a strong flow that sounds like LA and the Bay area breathed life into her like a modern Pygmalion. This is evident throughout her tape Split Personality. Hosted by DJ Carisma (@DJCarisma), the tape as a whole is fun, hyped, and well put together. Expect great things from her.

SUGGESTIONS: “I Got It Like That”, “Paper Doll”, “Pink Slip
RATING: 5 of 5
