Foggie Raw

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.

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.

Slowthai

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.

Playlist of my slowthai favourites

YoAstrum, a rapper from Southern New Jersey has taken the AbJo & JR Jarris Collab track – Golden Vibes and truly made it his own. This was released last year but still a sick track.

We need more patience. No I need It Now!

Love this short track from Philadelphia producer/rapper Cloud Atrium. I came across this guy a few months ago who is continuously impressing me with his tracks. One to watch.

Full Crate just dropped this gem to the world.

Featuring the vocals of Trinidad James, who loves gold but hates playing it safe & Bryn Christopher. Trinidad brings the the deep vocals to work with the beat before Big Bryn comes in with the high, Folddd like a … Fold like a magazineeee. Beautiful.

The beat is dope on this track and the vocals compliment it just right.

”Vogue’ is a record about all those people that choose to think free and enjoy life.’

Deep, Full Crate. Deep.

The icing on the cake of his Vogue EP.
