Basically, shout out to anyone continuing to stay true to their craft and making dope music that knows no bounds. That’s what this column was built for and is celebrating. Now go enjoy your weekends, suckas. Sound off on our Twitter (@TheSource). If you can do better yourself, submit a track or video to [email protected]

Denzel Curry & Deniro Farrar – “Bow Down” (Prod. by D.K.A.D.)

These two emcees have been making relatively large waves in their hometowns and nationally. And now you’re getting close to bowing down in case you don’t already know, no Beyoncé. Peep the interview we just posted up online on Denzel as well.

Alex Wiley & Kembe X – “Know Normal” (Prod. by The Innovatorz)

The two Chicago emcees link up for what seems like an onslaught of new music from Wiley. But we ain’t mad at that. You can catch Alex Wiley in Chicago tomorrow at Reggie’s with some special guests.

Ken Rebel (feat. Jedi-P & Smoke Dza) – “Yearch” (Prod. by Don Kevo)

The kid is making moves like he’s mainstream. Just wait till he breaks that glass ceiling Kanye speaks so highly of. And in case you didn’t know, Smoke DZA will be releasing his next album independently. Congratulate the man.
