Westside Boogie ft. Joey Bada$$ – “Outside”

Is there a more underrated rapper in the industry than Westside Boogie (formerly Boogie)? I’ve never heard less buzz around a rapper who delivered a highly critically-acclaimed debut album. His music’s being produced under Eminem to boot. This song featuring Joey Bada$$ is the musical version of that Spiderman pointing at Spiderman meme.

Angie Rose – “Not A Monster”

She’s a woman. She’s what one may consider attractive. That’s 92.7% of the battle of getting promoted by a major label and becoming popular in the US these days. In all fairness though, she appears to be decent and is not resorting to using her body like other female Hispanic Pop artists from New York (see Cardi B, Jennifer Lopez). Most importantly, this song is just catchy enough to earn her some attention as an artist on the rise.

Yebba – “Distance”

I don’t care about the Grammys. But they are what they are. So I was pleasantly surprised to see that one of the underrated gems I’ve picked here was nominated for a Grammy. I held out on posting for a while, and this is one of the few great songs I’ve discovered and wanted to share from Spotify’s weekly New Music Friday playlist. Even without a video for it. Just a little proof that you can be sure to only find songs a cut above the rest here! Congratulations to this talented artist.
