School. Work. Responsibilities. Expectations. Deadlines. LIFE. It can be a lot. Sometimes we work things up in our head to the point where we create problems for ourselves for no reason. Surrounding ourselves with that inner crew of people who know us better than we know ourselves is crucial.
On “All In Your Mind,” the throwback, jazzy beat complements Chris Miles’ singing and rapping as he reciprocrates the respect and love he has for his girl who reminds him that it’s all in his head.
As you know, the 16-year-old rapper has been buzzing for a minute. “All In Your Mind” is the latest release from Chris Miles’ forthcoming Milestones project, following the first single “Psychotic,” which dropped last month.
“Leading you in with a bluesy beat that carries through the song, ‘All In Your Mind’ is the type of track you want to listen to as you’re soaking in the last few weeks of summer sun,” praised Billboard in their premiere of the song earlier today.
There aren’t many 21-year-old’s that can say they’ve been in the rap game for 8+ years. North Chicago rapper J.R. Donato is one of the few that can. At 13, rapping as Young J.R., he had a regional hit with “500 Degrees.”
Still, his peers didn’t take him very seriously as he was distributing CD’s of his music at school – finding the music he worked to make on the floor or in the garbage didn’t deter his ambitions, rather it pushed him to take things a few steps further. Falling under the wing of local vet Twista, J.R. dropped out of high school and began touring the Midwest.
The teen-aged rapper that garnered attention for rapping over Lil Wayne beats was coming into his own, and soon he crossed paths with Wiz Khalifa back stage on the Under the Influence tour. Wiz later enlisted J.R. for a feature on his Cabin Fever 2 mixtape before signing him to Taylor Gang Ent.
“Make It Count” is an embodiment of the work that J.R. Donato’s put in to this point, as he’s turned doubters into believers and aspires to continue this effort with his forthcoming Fast Money & Freedom project.
While last year’s North Pole boasted big name features like Wiz, Iamsu!, Ab-Soul, Chevy Woods, and Smoke DZA, Fast Money & Freedom’s only guest appearance comes from J.R.’s The Jetsonz cohort Cody Blankz as the project is produced in-full by Sledgren. With “Make It Count,” J.R. Donato has also announced the September 28th release date for Fast Money & Freedom.
Thaddeus David & bvhutch.visuals team up to unleash “From The Jump”. The soundtrack set by Aviel Ben Yamin features a slow, bass heavy beat to compliment the eerie visuals including an abandoned burned down home, a smoke-veiled skate bowl, and concrete factory.
“From The Jump” serves as the first leak off of his upcoming The Rise: White Summer, due late September, and is only a sample of what Thaddeus David & Aviel Ben Yamin will be releasing.

Ace has been a fan of the Hot Boys since their glory days, and started rapping at age 8 because of them. Nearly 20 years later, his creative progression is nothing short of admirable.
In preparation for his milestone EP The Hot Boy B8gie Project, Ace visited New Orleans to shoot, record and celebrate Southern music. There, he linked up in the studio with TY of Jet Life — or you may know him as Hot Boy B.G.’s son.
