In the time I took off last week, I found a lot of legit emcees from certain regions of the country but not in others. I
won’t will name regions here, so, West Coast where you at? I’m either not finding the right outlets to check or you guys are just quiet. I know there’s dope music coming out of the West. Show me I’m right!
Today’s post came a little late because I know everyone, including myself, was doing it big on Memorial Day-grilling, hitting the beach, and/or partaking in general debauchery. So as you wind down and dread work tomorrow morning, check out this week’s SYLR honorees.
Don’t miss: “Livin’ Loaded” & “Be Free”
When you get a project from anybody in the SAVEMONEY crew in Chicago, you get most of them at one point or another. Fresco is a great example of being a bully on the mic over smooth beats.
This group from Maryland continues the long marriage between Jazz and Hip-Hop. Consider this project the happy honeymoon.
Not only is the word “real” overused but it’s too short of a word to describe JSWISS. So the emcee has chosen to ride with “awthentic.” It’s not far from the truth.
Trust me, I listen to every submission. To get your project considered for SYLR (West Coast, I’m looking at you), please email the following information to SYLR@thesource.com:
