Video: CEO Trayle – “DrillC4”
CEO Trayle specializes in sly slick talk, packing his bars with wit and wry menace. Proving that he can master any style, Trayle shares “DrillC4,” a new banger. Populated with ghostly vocal samples and militant snares, “DrillC4” finds the critically acclaimed rapper tiptoeing atop the fast-moving percussion with grace, keeping a deliberate pace as he doles out bits of street wisdom. Though he’s trying his hand a sound popular in Chicago, NY, and the UK, the focus remains firmly on Trayle’s hometown of Atlanta: “Free YSL, still waitin’ on a verdict/Long live Keed, that’s the prince, yeah you heard it/Chop on the top on that, its verdict/Straight out the mud, my Amiri’s dirty.” The song arrives with a Ring Ring Visuals-directed video, which finds Trayle performing the song in NYC, as he stunts in the rain with his Caddy down under the Kosciuszko Bridge (which divides Brooklyn and Queens).

PHONY Debuts New Single/Video “THE MIDDLE” via FLOOD, New Album Out This Friday (7/29), Joyce Manor Support Dates
PHONY (aka Los Angeles-based Neil Berthier) today shares “THE MIDDLE,” the anthemic final single off his new album AT SOME POINT YOU STOP, out this Friday, July 29th. It arrives alongside a chilling Dom Vaughn-directed video that culls inspiration from David Cronenberg, The Twilight Zone, and 80’s slasher films, premiering today via FLOOD Magazine. “It depicts a body-horror procedure that plugs Neil into a simulation,” explains Vaughn. “The VR setup allows him to experience a kind of cosmic gumbo of abject loneliness and his happiest memories.” The song, Berthier explains, is about the devastating loss of his father: “I had a tough time dealing with my father’s dementia conceptually. To cope, I wrote letters to get my feelings out there, knowing no one would see them. It was more helpful than I thought it would be. This song is about wishing there was a recipient to eventually read these letters, but knowing that’s not possible.”

KELOW LATESHA TAPS ASIAN DOLL FOR GENRE-BENDING NEW SINGLE “HE AIN’T MINE”
Kelow LaTesha arrives full speed with the release of her base-knocking new single “He Ain’t Mine” featuring Dallas-born rapper Asian Doll.
“It’s about two imaginary people arguing about the end of a relationship and blaming each other,” he explains. “I had that thought and was thinking about endings. I was listening to a lot of Northern Soul, and the little vignettes you can get in those songs. I love writers who can do that, write stories – Squeeze, The Kinks, Eminem. I always start off doing that, but up nowhere near it, so this song is the closest I’m going to get to that.”

Just as Nincubura’s quest itself, this song weaves through a labyrinth of dizzying, uncompromising passages that will leave you feeling utterly annihilated. Enjoy!”
