Yup, Ghostface Killah is still rapping circles around his contemporaries. This time around, the New York giant doubles down on his signature style of slick raps as he attacks the beat with savage intentions for “YUPP!.” Remy Ma matches his intensity, bringing her own flair into the mix with the kind of tongue-in-cheek lyricism that has made her one of the best female emcees, ever. Together, Ghostface and Remy deftly guide listeners through their quick-hitting lyrical flexes and celebrate hip-hop’s 50th birthday in the same sequence.

Love Spells releases his mesmerising new single “Flow” // Listen here
“It’s honestly one of my happiest songs I’ve ever made but in the making of it I was in the worst part of my life I’ve ever been in which I guess was just me trying to cope and honestly it worked so I got two things out of that which are a better feeling and a kick ass song” shares Love Spells on the new track.
“I feel way more excited than nervous. To be totally honest, this is the only thing I have ever wanted,” says Mariel Loveland of NYC-based indie-pop band Best Ex about the announcement of her debut album With A Smile (out on October 6, 2023 on Iodine Recordings/Alcopop! Records). “So many times, when I feel like I’m flailing around with no direction, the universe seems to give me exactly what I need. In this case, the month I was getting ready to think about recording a new single, Iodine Records randomly reached out to me and asked if I wanted to make an album. I honestly had been feeling like I may never get the opportunity to make a full length on my own—especially with how much the industry has changed since I made music with Candy Hearts. Of course, I said ‘ABSOLUTELY YES.’ It feels like the world is giving me a second chance, and I hope fans will too.”
