SHERWOOD MARTY DROPS NEW SINGLE “DOIN MY THANG“
Baton Rouge’s Sherwood Marty just released his latest single, “Doin My Thang.”
This follows his BRKRS music video “We Outchea,” which stemmed from his last mixtape, Stuck In The Trenches 1.5. Sherwood Marty first busted onto the scene in 2016 with his breakthrough mixtape, Stuck In The Trenches: Self Made Vol. 1, which featured an appearance from the late, Da Real Gee Money. Sherwood’s uncompromising rawness made records like, “Sherwood Baby” and “Ride” a huge success. Last year, Sherwood teamed up with breakout Bay Area/Alabama lyricist, OMB Peezy for their joint Young and Reckless mixtape, that received praise from Pitchfork, Pigeons and Planes, Hypebeast, XXL, Hot New Hip-Hop, Elevator Mag, Thizzler, and other outlets.
Take a listen to “Doin My Thang” below and look for the music video coming soon.

VALEE SHARES THE WEALTH ON NEW RECORD “YOU AND ME BOTH”
WATCH THE KALEIDOSCOPIC LYRIC VIDEO HERE
“Valee is changing the sound of hip-hop in 2018, one unpredictable verse at a time.”– RollingStone”
Valee’s innovative style makes it impossible to predict what might come next.”– Pitchfork
“Valee doesn’t sound like anything happening in Chicago hip-hop right now.” – Noisey
In an era when aspiring public figures broadcast constantly in an effort to maximize their brand value, Valee’s coolly laconic stands apart. With short songs and a soft-spoken style, his unpredictable raps sketch subjects with a droll eye for detail over a bass-heavy canvas. This is trap music for the connoisseur, for fans of clever lyrics and effortless style. Valee grew up on Chicago’s South Side. When he received toys as a child, he would break them apart to figure out how they worked, a method he applies to his own process with music today: “Sometimes I rap and cut and copy and paste and move parts around and it changes the whole song, for the better.” His music career began when, intent on buying a gaming system, he stopped at Guitar Center instead. “I just wanted to make beats better than what I hear on my mixtapes or on the radio, and I wanted to rap on it. I wasn’t thinking about anyone else at all.” His counterintuitive approach across five mixtapes and his G.O.O.D. Music debut EP, GOOD job, You Found Me, has captured the ears of artists and music aficionados alike, drawn to his unorthodox approach.

“GRITTY, STYLISH, AND LOW-KEY COOL”: MAXO RELEASES HIS CRITICALLY HERALDED NEW ALBUM LIL BIG MAN

“The rising LA rapper started his rap career just a few short years ago, but he already raps with the kind of wise, world-weary delivery that some artists don’t develop until they’ve been at it for twice as long….He raps his ass off, he tells introspective stories and tackles some heavy topics, and his words and delivery are both sharp.” – Brooklyn Vegan
“Maxo’s music showcases an underlying grittiness that effortlessly matches his stylish sound: a balance of low-key cool with a weariness that only comes from having to grow up too soon.” – Pitchfork
“The video suits the textured track wonderfully, complimenting its inviting sounds. With the swirling camera and gentle color pallette, it’s the perfect introduction to Maxo’s music.” – Complex
Maxo, 23, started recording his musings just a few years ago, inspired by his older brother’s struggles in coping with the world around him.
“That was around the time of Mike Brown and Trayvon Martin,” Maxo recalls clearly. “Just being a Black man will take a toll on you, whether you recognize it or not. That, in combination with trying to find yourself. It will drive you crazy. He lost his shit.” A middle child (he has a younger brother), it was tough to see his older bro—who loved to rap—hit a rough patch. When society stressed him out of his love of music, Maxo picked it up for him.
