Try and listen to Brown's new single without at least cracking a smile. We dare you. The East Nashville MC returns with his trademark humor and some uplifting bars on his new one, "HeyHeyHey!", produced by D. Holt. Brown's versatility is on display on this one, as he levels through multiple flows over various beat flips, before finally achieving his ultimate form in the final 16 bars.
Get excited. Gnarwhal are finally releasing a new full-length. After what seems like the longest breath ever held, we're finally letting out a sigh of relief as Gnarwhal have announced the follow-up to their 2011 debut full-length, unanimous album of the year, Duane.

The young stunna outta Tennessee, Scotty Rockwell, is working on the follow-up to his brilliant debut Rockwell The Ruler. Proving that he's not content to stay in just one lane, Scotty taps BZRK's ThirdEyeG and MacDonald for some choice, experimental, outta-this-world, dark-as-fuck production, on which the young Rockwell straight flexes. Stream "TOMMY" after the drop.
Enter, "As The World Turns", the triumphant return of Case Arnold.

But earlier this week, he released his first new single in quite some time, "As The World Turns", which features DMV artist Ace Cosgrove.
Capable of delivering styles that range from conscious to stoner, and rachet to gangster, Moss Da Beast is an MC definitely worth knowing about. The Nashville/Phoenix rapper has got more than capable flows, and with such a range in his styles and verses, he stands apart from a lot of intellectual MCs in that he has a number of tracks fitting for a variety of settings.
Bravemaker is a one-man band from Tennessee that makes weirdo, bedroom pop tunes. We don't know much about the mysterious Bravemaker, other than the fact that we dig the tunes he's been dropping on his Bandcamp in recent weeks.
