Woodbridge, Virginia rhymesayer PHZ-Sicks (pronounced “physics”) is preparing to unleash his latest studio album, The Moment.
The set packs a total of 15 original jams from the artist, a 2011 nominee for Best VA Male Rap Artist. Included are reader-approved singles “The Love Scene III” and “Coming Down.” Two years in the making, the project marks a turning point in PHZ’s career. In his own words, “The album is called ‘The Moment’ because I feel with everything I put into it, this is the moment where my life changes.
Where I get to pursue this passion like there is no tomorrow and finally [reap] the rewards of the sacrifices I made to get to this point.” Alison Carney, Lyriciss, Scolla, Seanny Greggs and TFOX make guest appearances on the LP, which boasts beats by Best Kept Secret, Epik The Dawn, Kajmir Royale, Kriss Liss and more.

Yung Miss releases her first original album, Waveforms, a self-produced emotional rollercoaster showcasing the vocal, production, and songwriting skills of the Inland Empire’s new rising star. Inspired by Edgard Varèse and the concept of “organized sound”, Yung Miss uses her passion for audio recording and “love” itself to paint a picture of just how “unorganized” affection can be.
With features from artist Cashius Green, Young C, Chris James, Fresh B plus many other talented guest and cover art by talented painter Wellington Rawls, Waveforms promises to leave listeners ready to fall in love or out of it. May the “forms” be with you.
D I M E N S I O N S comprises six brilliantly well produced tracks from Mississippi/Texas native Prozpect. It is easy to cloud the blissful abstracted audio of this EP with details of its complexities. Breaking rules that others couldn’t get away with and involving listeners in a way that very few hip-hop acts are able to do, the project is destined to pull in music fans of various genres.
Proz bathes your brain in lush textures, surprising and explosive atmospheres set in undiscovered, unearthly dimensions. Production is handled by Prozpect himself, Shelter Point, Lapalux, Virtual-420, andLuxury. The EP also includes a feature from both Shelter Point and the songstress Py.
Drojo dropped the Happy Perez-produced “100 Mill” on us almost three weeks ago, but today he’s here with his latest project. Dro’s new EP comes loaded with 8 new tracks from the Texas rhymer. Mr. Narco Wave’s second EP of the year proves that he’s quickly becoming the voice of the Border War/Narco Wave genre of rap.
With production from Happy Perez (Miguel – “Sure Thing,” Mariah Carey – “#Beautiful”) and Super Ced (Meek Mill – “Make Me”), Drojo’s new EP gives you the uncut emotion of a young man growing up near the border of Mexico and Texas surrounded by poverty and large amounts of drugs at arms reach.

“Naturally Born Strangers represents those born and raised different who don’t associate themselves with the common communal circles. It’s a proclamation of pride in the power of being disliked, unwanted or obscure, weird or foreign to the norm. It’s for the stranger and the more strange, the new community of outcasts, the antithesis to the neighbourhood and the cynics of its circles. NBS is the umbrella title to those influenced by much, deterred by nothing and unknown the world over.
It’s a reflection of our societies vision of “normal”. The queen is represented to create familiarity but has been tainted to identify the strange. It’s fuck government, fuck the system, fuck money, fuck fame, fuck art.”
