Tag: DSM Song of the week

Supposed to Be

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!

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.
