Florida based Rapper Alvii is getting his name out there in every way. We featured him recently on “Catch Up“, and now he delivers his first Mixtape! Titled “Adventures Of Trueself“, this 7 track project sees him covering topics about his day to day life, as well as showing that he can handle any of the self-produced beats that he takes on. Featuring Jamaican Rapper Slim I.D. as the only guest, the project shows us that Alvii can hold his own. He also pays homage to Ocala, Florida where he currently resides. Get a glimpse into the life of the Cuban born Rapper by checking out the project below.
Whether you address him as “Nino” or “El Nino“, Rapper Slim I.D. aims to take over with his wave of Trap Music this Summer! While putting the final touches on his upcoming “Nino” Mixtape, he fires off a warning with “Homage“. Produced by NineSix, Slim lets listeners in on what’s to come on his new project. Still hustling like he has one more job to do before hitting the jackpot, you have to respect his ambition. Those who doubted will be inspired, and those who wrote him off with regret it. Previously featured in the “15 Artists To Watch Out For In Summer 2017” post, Slim I.D’s “Nino” project will see the light later this year. Check out the track below.

With a few years in the game, Florida based Recording Artist Khxos (formerly Khaos) has been releasing Dancehall tunes and gaining attention thanks to Social Media. He received a buzz that started to bubble in Summer 2015 thanks to the release of “One Touch”. Summer 2016 kept the ball rolling with his debut EP “Deception”, but collaborations with Andrew Trabass, Chargii, and Lincoln 3Dot helped to keep it blazing for the rest of the year. Early 2017 however saw his name change, and the release of “So Loud” and “BOMM” propelled him as one to watch this Summer as he prepares to release his debut Album, “Dopamine”.
2. Royal Blu
They don’t call him “El Fuego” for nothing, his music keeps you on your toes, and his lyrics hit like the hot oil from frying Plantains. This Artist has been quietly making his way onto the scene and has made appearances from “New Wave” to “Live From Kingston: Class 2016”, to “Imprint” to Protoje’s “For The Culture” event. His collaborations with the likes of Lila Ike, Runkus, and Leno Banton have received numerous hits on Soundcloud, and he hits the road (or Air) with Runkus as a part of the “Class Is In” European Tour and a stop at the German Summerjam this Summer!
This Songstress came as a surprise this year with the release of her debut single, “So Shy”. Known as “The First Lady Of REM”, she followed up with a freestyle (Believe In You), and a follow up single titled “The Cycle”. She has also made appearances on “Smile Jamaica”, “New Wave”, “Speak”, and “7 am In Kingston”. Yanah is currently working follow up singles, and makes an appearance near you this Summer!
Rapper Slim I.D. may be a lil late to kicking off his 2017, but when it comes to the money, he’s earlier than the sun! Inspired by Rappers Future & Rick Ross’ “That’s A Check“, he stepped in the booth and added his bars for his own remix! With Phantom handling the Production, Slim goes in like the Tax Man when that payment is overdue! If you owe Slim I.D. money, I’d advise you to get every sent together and pay him in Cash, Cheque, Paypal, Western Union, and any other way you get that money sent off! Stay tuned as Slim I.D. is working on his follow up to “The Initiative” (Available on iTunes and Spotify). Check out the track below!
