NEW MUSIC FOR 2022 Q2: 8 RISING ARTISTS YOU NEED TO HEAR
#1 Key Glock
Watch out for this talented rapper from Tennessee, US! Key Glock delivers cold, stark, uncompromising verses about sex, guns, and money. Updating the woozy, narcotic style of Memphis greats that came before him like Three 6 Mafia, Key Glock found success with critics, fans, and the charts with projects like 2020’s Yellow Tape and two Dum and Dummer releases with Young Dolph. Following the 2020 mixtape Son of a Gun, he again paired with Dolph, hitting number eight on the Billboard 200 with 2021’s Dum and Dummer 2, before releasing his sequel mixtape Yellow Tape 2. Check out Dolph’s cuz here:

The much-loved couple artist BriGuel is about to go big, dropping fresh music left and right. Their most recent single “Lately” has garnered lots of attention from fans and critics alike. The melodic, positive song truly serves BriGuel’s genre-borderless fame by combining conscious rapping and powerfully charged vocals in the chorus. BriGuel said: “From the notes in a musical score to those given on a script or a set, we put our heart and soul into everything we do, developing and delivering powerful stories that drive emotional impact.” Indeed, all of their work is focused on speaking words of encouragement to the world through art. This includes singles like “Looking For Answers”, “Life Is A Lesson”, “Without Darkness” and more. If this is where music is heading- we are so excited. We legitimately need more Briguels. We’re in sync. Stream Lately here:
