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.
With Squadda B not far off from the release of Main Attrakionz’ magnum opus “808s & Dark Grapes III”, you’d think it’d be a while before we got another major project from the Bay Area MC. Knowing how hard Green Ova grinds though, that never could have been the case. Rather, Squadda, Pepperboy, & Young God are already gearing up to release “Kome Ride With Us” via Mishka Records, and their lead single, “Tears In My Eyes”, is very much on the level of the best tracks from both “808s & Dark Grapes II & III”. I honestly wouldn’t be surprised to see this track mature into the role of underground classic, especially if it ends up getting a solid video treatment.
