Today we have back with us Lil Guillotine who has teamed up with Rare MC to brings us “In America” which discuses hard hitting topics like racism in policing and a call for reparations for Black Americans. With that being said and Lil Guillotine being a regular artist on the site let’s get right into the music.
Our story begins in Chicago today, as we meet Osay. She started singing at a very young age. Once she was introduced to Biggie Smalls and Eminem she began rapping. Their lyrics inspired her to take music seriously and pursue them. Osay truly hit the scene in 2016 when she began dropping freestyles on social media which garnered attention leading her to being a ghost writer for several different artists. We can’t say who since that would no longer mean she was a ghost. This experience pushed her into pursuing her own musically career and she moved to Atlanta in 2018 to do just that. She interned at DJ Drama’s Mean Streets Studios while studying and learning the entire creative and recording process.
After her time with Mean Streets, Osay spent a couple of years polishing her sound and setting her own style. this brings us to present day with the official release of her EP Chapter One… Now that we know a little more about Osay, let’s get into the music.
Today we head over to the Mdwest to meet rapper Karras. He brings us Veils which is meant to be a hypnotic, heady hip-hop track. He has been releasing new singles each month since the drop of his debut album ‘Karrasmatic”
Thoughts on Veils
The song is very smooth and has an intergalactic vibe. His delivery reminds me of something I’ve heard before but can’t quit put my finger on. But even so he is different than the mainstream rappers that have been coming up as of late. He focuses on what’s on the other side and how we are so far removed from it. if we would connect on a higher plane we might be able to see the world for what it truly is.
You can find the song currently on Spotify and Soundcloud with these links:
heading across the pond, we go to South London to meet BeckMilli. She is out to make her name known on the UK rap scene and is well on her way to making her name known overseas as well. BeckMilli creates melodic catchy tracks with hot lyrics to capture the spirit of road rap. She sees herself as a product of her environment and is on the rise to be the next prominent female hip hop artist. She has released several singles such as Do Road, Just Look, and Gotham. The latest addition to the collection is ‘Take Man Out’ which we will be discussing today. So let’s get into the music.
