HOODLUM announces ‘Southside Story’ + “OUTSIDE” (feat. Maxo Kream) / “Pressure”

Published

HOODLUM

San Antonio’s prolific rapper, HOODLUM has just announced the 4/7 release date for his upcoming album, Southside Story, along with a new single, “PRESSURE” and the arrival of “OUTSIDE” (feat. Maxo Kream) on streaming services. HOODLUM broke out on the national stage with his 2019 single, “OJ” (3M Views), taking off online due to his anxious yet punchy flow and subsequently landing on the soundtrack for the horror film, Random Acts of Violence later that year. In June 2021, visual artist Colton Valentine painted a mural of the rapper adjacent to a memorial of Nipsey Hussle, solidifying HOODLUM’s spot as a San Antonio Star.

Maxo Kream caught onto HOODLUM’s wave in 2021, jumping on “OUTSIDE” which helped HOODLUM subsequently garner the attention of No Jumperwho reached out to book him an interview on the podcast. His laidback flow, off kilter cadence, and an ear for deep and bass heavy beats has set HOODLUM apart as an emcee with a sound that’s uniquely his own. In the words of Pitchfork, “No rapper in Texas right now has a better beat selection than San Antonio’s HOODLUM. The South Side rapper can lay his croaky delivery over any type of instrumental: a soul sample, trendy minimalist Texas production, or a Bay Area funky flip.”

HOODLUM is now gearing up to tell his complete life story through his debut album, Southside Story with features including Maxo Kream, Paul Wall, Valee and Doeman. Southside Story features HOODLUMrapping with his signature low-key Texan flair over an impressive array of beats ranging from G-Funk to hard-hitting Southern Trap to Boom-Bap with a select few star features to match.

Fresh off the release of LOST FILES 2 in January, HOODLUM is continuing to expand upon his dynamic sound with his forthcoming debut album, Southside Story. The upcoming project is a strong statement from HOODLUM, as he boasts about his lifestyle and shares introspective reflections on his past life. In his new single “PRESSURE”, HOODLUM showcases his punchy flow and unique delivery over a mesmerizing piano loop and stuttering hi-hats. On “OUTSIDE” with Maxo Kream, the duo show off their undeniable chemistry as they exchange magnetic verses over the bouncy production, with HOODLUM handling the striking hook. Boasting features from Texas Hip-Hop icon Paul Wall, Maxo Kream, Valee and Doeman, the album as a whole helps to showcase HOODLUM’s diverse sound, expressive lyricism and croaky flows – all with an unapologetically southern style.

Q DA FOOL SHARES NEW VIDEO SINGLE “HEISMAN”

Q DA FOOL SHARES NEW VIDEO SINGLE "HEISMAN"

Maryland rapper Q Da Fool has just shared his homecoming single “Heisman” ahead of the release of his comeback mixtape Home Detention, out 6/2. Hailing from the small town of Largo, Q Da Fool has long been a clear-cut DMV standout, carving out his own distinct lane in which he shares detailed stories of his lived experiences and the street life in Maryland – showcased on hit singles like “Win” (9.4M streams) and a momentous collaboration with Shoreline Mafia. Having released a slew of countless dynamic street anthems and projects with the likes of Kenny Beats and Grammy award-winning producer Zaytoven, he’s distinctly chosen not to follow in the footsteps of his area’s go-go wave – an artistic decision that has allowed him to fully flex his gritty lyricism and energetic flows. Fresh off the release of his I’ll Be Back project to kick off his year, “Heisman” serves as Q Da Fool’s first release since being free, after serving 18 months in jail – and he has a lot to get off his chest.

As Q Da Fool continues to keep his foot on the gas, he’s working to capitalize on his built-up momentum. On “Heisman”, Q Da Fool is expanding upon his dynamic street-heavy sound by asserting his authority through his unwavering delivery and rapid-fire flows – “Stayed in my lane and I steady was risin’”, he raps with force towards the end of the chorus. Named after the trophy awarded to the most outstanding player in college football each year, “Heisman” finds Q Da Fool using the track’s menacing hook to creatively mimic the trophy’s stance, hitting his haters with the stiff arm in the process. With his signature street flair on full display, as he swiftly tells candid tales and riddles off his cannon of no-nonsense bars, Q Da Fool is using the release of “Heisman” to further cement himself as an essential artist and storyteller in the Hip-Hop game.

Lil Durk Drops Anxiously Awaited New Album, ‘Almost Healed’

Published

on

lil durk

After increasing excitement to a boiling point, Chicago hip-hop trailblazer and multiplatinum superstar Lil Durk unleashes his anxiously awaited eighth full-length offering and one of the year’s most anticipated albums, Almost Healed, out now. Stream Almost Healed on all DSPs HERE.

Superstar icon Alicia Keys notably stars in the music video for “Therapy Session/Pelle Coat,” which just premiered. Watch it HERE. The visual features her in emotionally charged and thought-provoking moments alongside Lil Durk. It marks their first collaboration together.

Tense production underlines his reflective rhymes as the accompanying visual explores his relationship with the streets and faith through a series of arresting vignettes. It instantly captivates—like everything he does.

Almost Healed pops off as his most personal, engaging, and enigmatic project to date. Laced with bold bangers and introspective anthems alike, it highlights his undeniable melodies and incisive bars at the forefront. He not only shines solo on the likes of “Never Again,” but he also distinguishes himself as the rare chameleonic force who can collaborate with country superstar Morgan Wallen on “Stand By Me” or the late Juice WRLD on “Cross The Globe.”

He may be Almost Healed, but he still takes no prisoners lyrically…

Check out the full tracklisting below.

Fittingly, he set the stage for the project with the single “All My Life” [feat. J. Cole]. Upon arrival, it bowed at #2 on the Billboard Hot 100, arriving his first Top 5! It has already reeled in over 80 million worldwide streams and over 20 million YouTube views on the accompanying music video in just under three weeks!

In support of Almost Healed, Durk launches one of the year’s most anticipated jaunts—the Sorry For The Drought Tour. He will be joined by special guests Kodak Black, NLE Choppa, and DD Osama in select cities. Produced by Live Nation, the 27-city tour kicks off on July 28 at MIDFLORIDA Credit Union Amphitheater in Tampa making stops across the U.S. in Brooklyn, Chicago, Los Angeles and more before wrapping up in Phoenix at Talking Stick Resort Amphitheatre on September 7.

The 2023 tour run comes after his successful ‘The 7220 Tour’ which hit North America in 2022 featuring special guests Doodie Lo & Booka600. Last year, Lil Durk owned the charts with the platinum-certified 7220, which crashed the Billboard 200 as his first #1 debut on the chart and boasted “AHHH HA,” “What Happened To Virgil” [feat. Gunna], and the cross-genre smash “Broadway Girls” [feat. Morgan Wallen].
