NX ONE KNOWS

Taythedxn has been heating up IGTV with his newest album trailer featuring his newest song NX ONE KNOWS.

Tay is known for his impressive vocals as he grabs our attention with this stunning visual. Tay told me that he took inspiration from After Hours from The Weeknd and after watching the visual I can see how well it fits.

Tay had a-lot of things halted due to the Pandemic. However, that has not slowed him down as an artist. He is doing his best to stay strong and continue to give music out to his fans.

Due to this impressive album trailer, Tay deserves the spot on DSM’s song of the week. Make sure you stay tuned to see when he will drop the album!

YNC Capo

Rapper YNC Capo lit Memphis on fire last summer with his catchy track “Feeling Like Kevo” who’s video has amassed nearly six million views since its release and rerelease on Worldstar.

After the explosion of “Feeling Like Kevo”, Capo got to work and dropped his project “While I’m Here” back in February.

For weeks after the album’s release, Capo’s Instagram story was flooded with hundreds of people blasting various tracks including the fan favorites “Life So Sweet” and “Intro”.

His newest track “Dumpin Out The Sunroof” pairs his bubbly yet rapid flow with an infectious, bass-heavy beat to create a catchy, surefire hit. Check the track out on Youtube now!

Oh That’s Cool

The lead song off of North Philadelphia rapper Kur’s new EP “Young 79”, “Oh That’s Cool”, is an introspective track that mixes short melodic vocal riffs with Kur’s signature pack-punching flow.

Kur’s first verse details his struggles with drug abuse, balancing being paranoid and unattached to the women in his life, and the fake love that he’s received from his family and friends.

The chorus of the track sees the rapper disassociating himself from the fake flexing he sees from the people around him.

Kur finishes the track by immortalizing his lost loved ones and family members he’s lost but never met.

The EP dropped on April 9th and has already crept its way into the hearts and minds of his ride or die fan base. Check out “Young 79” now on all platforms!!

Oz Sparx

Since lighting the streets of Philly on fire with his track “Can’t Change” with Zahsosaa, Olney native Oz Sparx has re-ignited his buzz with tracks like “Fake”, “Antisocial” and “Hindi”.

Since signing to 510 Music group, an imprint of EMPIRE records, the 19-year-old rapper has had songs placed on Worldstar periodically, collaborated with Florida’s J Green and YNW Melly, and been featured on media outlets like Elevator Magazine, Lyrical Lemonade, and BLVCK DETOX’s “Live Performance” series. 

His ability to perform lyrically as well as energetically makes him the clear choice for DSM’s Artist of The Week

No Lack

Philadelphia rappers Heem Sosa and Zahsosaa team up for “NO LACK”, a track that’s instantly infectious from the second the beat begins.

Sosaa starts off the track with a rapid-fire flow that strays from his usually melodic delivery. Despite this, his unapologetic paper chasing lyrics work perfectly with this switch up.

The 17-year-old rapper is best known for his songs “Never Switch”, “Checks” and “Humble”, all of which have a very bubbly, fun vibe that strays significantly from “NO LACK”.

Heem Sosa follows up Zahsosaa’s verse with an abrasive, in your face flow that cements this track as a surefire hit. Sosa’s flow is what helped propel his most notable song “Expose You” to over 500k views on Youtube.

The video for both tracks was made by heavyweight director Marlissa Monay.

Yung Liv

Last January, West Philadelphia native Yung Liv dropped his first video “Never Helped Out”, which currently sits at 53k views on Youtube.

Throughout the next nine months, he’d drop three videos that had similar numbers but nothing particularly eye-catching. However, Liv would drop a track alongside YH56ST that would blow up out of nowhere.

“Dead Oppz”, a song he didn’t even like at first, has since hit nearly two-and-a-half million views on Youtube and earned him a spot on Chicago rapper Polo G’s label “Capalot Records”.

The 19-year-old has made appearances in Elevator Magazine, Say Cheese TV, and Hoodlife Ent and his music continues to rake in views as his name begins to catch mainstream attention.

Yak Yola

In the span of just one year, West Philadelphia native Yak Yola has become one of the most promising talents in the city. His track “Demon Flow” hovers around 300k views on Youtube while his tracks “Blow”, “All In”, “Take Off”, and “Go Getta” range between 120 and 220 thousand views on the same platform.

Yola has been cosigned by Meek Mill and comedian/social influencer Gille Da King and made music with New York up and comers Sheff G and Sleepy Hollow.

Outside of music, he’s partnered with fashion brand Face Your Fears which has exploded in the past year becoming a staple of Philadelphia streetwear. The rapper rocks a custom iced out chain that dawns their signature FYF logo.

Alamo Records recognized all of this potential and signed the young artist a couple months ago. After months of anticipation, Yak Yola dropped his mixtape “Misunderstood” on Wednesday.

Lil Zack

Philadelphia rapper Lil Zack has put out a string of visuals with director Marlissa Monay that have gained serious traction in the Philly underground scene.

Zack’s local notoriety began with his track “Stand Down”, a high-energy anthem that would rack up nearly 500,000 views on Youtube in less than a year.

The young rapper followed this hit up with songs like “Dear Mama” with fellow emerging artist Mir220 and “No Safety” and their accompanying videos.

The two songs combined have nearly 300,000 Youtube views and feature the same melodic, paper-stacking enthusiasm as “Stand Down”.

Check out Lil Zack’s last mixtape, “Underrated King” on Soundcloud now!

Baby Shark

Why $loan and Skiano’s “Baby Shark” is a stroke of genius

Throughout the past year, West Philadelphia duo $loan and Skiano have become household names in the Philly underground scene with tracks like “Wolf N’ Demon”, “Back At It”, and “Sticked Up Glicked Up”.

Their trademark raspy flow is borderline demonic and their usually ominous, bass heavy beats have captivated fans. However, their most recent release couldn’t deviate more from their normal style. 

In theory, this song should make no sense. The beat, produced by Dj Tizz, samples the viral sensation “Baby Shark” while $loan and Skiano build up the beat drops with ridiculous chants like “I need a chewbop” and their trademark “hah hold that shit”.

In addition, the duo’s gun slinging lyrics don’t match the family friendly theme of a call and response kids song. But somehow, this song is nothing short of infectious.

Dj Tizz flips the song into a Philly club anthem and paired with a Tayy Official directed video that’s so lively even the white guy in a suit is dancing. This song is nothing short of a thrill ride.

In just under two weeks, the song already has nearly 300k views on Youtube and another 156k plays on Soundcloud. Kids all around Philly are blowing up social media with dance videos set to the new song.
