We’re crossing the seas for this one. Fresh out of the UK comes Recording Artist Lil Opy. This 17 year old has been making a name for himself lately thanks to his debut single, “Hold You Down” and today, we feature both the audio and visual of said tune. Directed by Amir and features popular UK Artist Paigey Cakey and rising Artist Oluwa Shimzie, this is aimed at young couples, those going through “Cuffing Season“, and those who are experiencing Summer love. With a feel good Production provided by Opy, this might be the soundtrack to many dates this year. In recent years we have seen a growth of African Artists as they’ve not only commanded a presence on the Afrobeat scene, but making their mark in Hip Hop, Dancehall, Reggae, Pop Music, and the various fusions of genres. Representing the Afro Allstars Collective, Lil Opy may just be one of those young Artists to look out for. Get yourself a “Bae” for this one.

Jamaican Rapper Lxrd Ezzi could’ve used his talents to speak on topics you hear every other Artist talk about nowadays, but instead he addresses love and Domestic Violence on “Keep Moving“. Produced by JayEDGE, Ezzi speaks on the effects of Domestic Violence, and how love can help to heal the emotional scars. An issue that is sometimes overlooked, it is up to Artists like Ezzi to help bring awareness, and Organizations to help educate the masses about Domestic Violence. The song was also made to motivate those who are going through it and other issues to speak up, be free and rise above the oppression. This is the first single off Lxrd Ezzi’s upcoming “Music For The Deaf” project. Check out the track below and share your thoughts in the comments section.
“For all the Dealers in the streets, and all the fly women in their Jeeps!“
Five Steez drops off another “Heat Rock” as the time draws near for his Mordecai assisted, “HeatRockz EP“. Today the Old and New Schools find common ground in the “True School“. Over hard hitting drums and eerie samples, Steez bobs and weaves and delivers dope lines speaking on “Dime A Dozen“ Rappers, not following trends, the true essence of Hip Hop, and of course showing respect to those who keep it true to the craft. This single is for those who push the BMWs or their feet, for those who find greatness in not only Old School Hip Hop, but in the New School, and for those who will keep this on heavy replay!
