Off of Zef Marcelo’s follow up 22 track album Rockstar 2 exists a song that is hands down an absolute banger.
Supposed to Be is a perfect example of Zef’s lyrical ability along with his vocal range coming together to create some heat. I mean I guess thats how its supposed to be!
This song features KOP Simba, who is another popular lyricist outside of Philadelphia.
“Only know one thing is how to add it up, little pretty brown thing and she bad as f***”
I have gotten the chance to speak to Zef multiple times and I have to say that his two favorite things have to be gettin paid and his pookie. It is clear that the same message is apparent in his song.
Zef Marcelo is my favorite artist out of Philly because his energy is unmatchable. Even though he has caught some clout he never misses the chance to show support to all of his fans.
Zef has been a good friend of DSM for some time now and was interviewed on The Philly 60 twice! You can watch his interview with Zef and Tae 2one5 here.
Make sure you keep an eye on Zef as he will continue to be posting new fire weekly. He is definitely an artist you want to keep an eye on!

Although he has worked with some big names, Dyon is proud of his ability to be unique and wants to use his platform to deliver a clear and powerful message.
“we’re all about giving back to PA and coming together with other PA artists”
Upon first listening to his music, you can see the influences he has had from his mainstream friends. However, don’t let that fool you. Dyon is much more than what he seems!
Dyon has been in the music game for about 11 years and shows no sign of stopping!

“I come from a family of hard work”
Drum let me know that although he is talented, it is the hard work that makes him special. I will be asking him in more detail about his work ethic during the show so make sure you tune in!
Drum is someone to keep an eye on. He has played me some of his music and I have to admit, it has been on repeat on my headphones ever since. This man has got his sound on lock and he is ready to share it with the world!
His music leaves me a little speechless, thats all I can really say. I hope this isn’t the case when it comes to showtime!
We will be going more in depth about Drum’s music during the show so make sure you tune in on the 11th at 3:00!
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.
Northeast Philadelphia rapper 2Raree is diversifying Philly’s often grim and gritty sound with a much more bubbly and fun aesthetic.
The teenager is getting serious traction with tracks like “Big Drippa” and “No Brotherly Love”, which have around 500k views on Youtube and “Big Bag” which has one million views on Youtube and over two million on Soundcloud.
However, upon searching for “Big Bag” I noticed that it was missing from both Soundcloud and Spotify. Maybe he will re-release?
2Raree has been featured on Philadelphia’s rap radio station Power 98.9 as well as getting nods from media outlets like Medium.com and Elevator Magazine.
He’s even gotten some attention from record labels like Alamo Records
Lets blow up his inbox because I think its time that 2rare comes on The Philly 60
A Hip-hop/R&b trio based out of Philadelphia uniquely fusing rapping and singing into a musical collage of intellectual lyrics with an urban twist. Verbosity are three childhood friends merging together for a common good – “Music”. Individually, they are Macky Monea, Niyah Iman and Breezii Lashayee. In the beginning, there was no exact plan of action, just three sisters with similar desires to be a part of and make a difference in today’s music.
Influenced by their parents to make education a priority in whatever direction they chose to go in. Verbosity equally shared the thought of rapping and singing about subjects that would impact their public in positive and thought-provoking ways.
Verbosity has performed throughout Philadelphia and the Tri State area, taking pride in being able to connect with audiences of various age demographics. Verbosity is currently working on their first EP project, to be exposed soon.
Their new single “Temptation” from the upcoming project is available now on all major platforms. Verbosity has donated performance time, and volunteered service for causes throughout the community to make a difference.
It’s nothing like being yourself and people loving you for it – “Verbosity”.
