Jayo, also known as Foggieraw, is someone who has been on my radar for a while now.
Based out of Maryland, specifically Prince George’s County, Foggie has quickly gained a reputation for his unmistakable trademark voice and his ability to combine nostalgic and futuristic beats and riffs to his music.
Foggie got his name from a Nike basketball commercial with Mo Williams and Kevin Durant rapping, Mo’s name was Fog Raw. After his mates started calling Jayo Fog Raw, he made it his insta name, deleted it and then had to make it @foggieraw.
In the summer of 2012, after influence from friends, he decided music was what he wanted to do. He released his first project: Rice For Breakfast in 2013
“30 and 10” was the track that introduced me and a lot of others to Foggieraw
Many of Foggie’s tracks reflect his faith which is something I personally think creates a connection between him and his listeners. He writes about what he is going through and whats on his heart. Not about chasing money, frame and hoes. It’s refreshing.
My favourite tracks:
All in all – Big fan. Cool guy. Great artist.
A banger from London based Benny Mails. Produced by @kidkanevil
Regretz by Villain Park. Insane flow with a smooth bouncy beat. This LA duo are crazy talented. Just wish they came out with more music. Dope.
I first came across Slowthai late last year, when his track murder popped up on my recommended feed on Spotify. I have since become a massive fan.
It’s safe to say the 23-year-old, Northampton Saint goes hard. Rapping about his routes growing up in Northampton, slowthai brings listeners into his world. His bars are relatable and his sound and image is completely unique.
Considering the number of tracks Slowthai has released, his following is rapidly growing both in the UK and further afield. If he keeps releasing tracks like his latest: ‘Ladies’, celebrating women, I’m certain this is just the start for Slowthai.
Watch his latest performance of Ladies on COLORS
