With the thousands upon thousands of songs that are uploaded onto the internet everyday, sometimes it can be quite a chore to wade through the trash to get to the treasure. Fortunately for you guys, I’m here to do the dirty work. In my new monthly column for 1833.fm, I (Clever Tom of Internet Hippy) am here to bring you five recently uncovered gems from the untapped mines of the soundcloud quarry. All tracks featured are from recently released projects by underground rappers, and each song stands out as a high mark in a field with zero barrier for entry. So if you’re sick and tired of digging through endless reposts on your cluttered soundcloud stream, just hear me out, and I’ll make sure to only bring you the best of the best when it comes to unsigned Internet MCs.
The $uicideboy$ are the hottest upcoming rappers on the scene right now, and with collaborative projects under their belts with Black Smurf, Pouya, and Ramirez already, it’s not hard to see why. Their well-groomed aesthetic, in-house beat and video production, and consistent release schedule, makes their music irresistible to teenage tumblr types, plus they’re just flat-out talented to boot. “Newport Reds” with Black Smurf is arguably their best best song to date, and with a catchy piano line and melodic flows to match, they’ve got an ear worm of a track that holds up upon repeated listens.
