I’ve been a fan of what the League of Extraordinary G’z and all those connected have done for a long time now, and one of the main reasons I love what they do is because of the energy they bring to their music. You can tell that these cats speak from deep experience, and that they stand behind every word spoken. All of these aspects are on 10 for the latest release, Gang Sings, a banger courtesy of $.Dot, DoWrong and Dominican Jay. As a longtime fan of groups like Compton’s Most Wanted, South Central Cartel, and rappers like DJ Quik, this track checks all the proper boxes for me. The video is dynamic, with excellent camerawork and direction guided by Super Thing, and the Eric Dingus track matches the energy level of all three MCs, who straight snap on each verse. This one is an instant classic, so get in on the ground floor with the likes, comments and shares, because folks are gonna get hip quick to this one.

Austin-based rapper Dowrong has been on the scene for a number of years making noise, and like many in 2019, it seems like he’s intent on raising his creative bar in all aspects. Trap on Wheels, his latest release, has more heart in four songs than many artists can achieve in a traditional length LP, both in terms of the way Dowrong spits and what is being said. His energy is high throughout, but his style shifts from song to song, fitting each bit of production perfectly and infectiously. Be it the hypnotic nature of Trap Phone, the organic sounds integrated into I Stay Down, the wall of sound that is G.O.O.N., or the assault on the senses found on In The Streets, there’s something for everyone on Trap on Wheels, so find and stream it on your favorite streaming service sooner than later, and share it around for others to do the same.

As Joe Budden and Charlamagne tha God recently stated in their year-end wrap-up, lyricism is back in a big way these days. That sentiment is definitely true in regards to the Austin hip-hop scene as well. For anyone doubting, exhibit A comes in the form of the latest single from Dowrong of DSR/ALVMNI/LOEG’z. Seasoned producer White Jamal flexes over a classic drumbreak to provide a nostalgia-inducing beat that perfectly suits the testimonial given by Dowrong about his life and ambitions. This is definite mixtape fire right here. Share this one around, and help boost those listen numbers, because tracks like Dowrong’s Prayer deserve to shine.
