Back in 2018, COMPLEX had him on watch as Atlanta’s “Rising Rapper.” In the following year, he was the artist we needed to watch – now, no one’s playing – GRIP is the rapper-raconteur, a rare breed, that you need to stop sleeping on.

His latest single, “Peaks & Pitfalls,” imparts the ultimate enrapture: A nostalgic rap-type beat, produced by Latrell James, paired with an elevated hook, “I know with all the peaks they’ll be pitfalls / Just don’t quit y’all,” a track you have no choice but to get a GRIP on.

The mellifluous track is the latest of GRIP‘s recent string of singles this year, following the release of his EP, Proboscidea (2020), and the “defiant” album we still have on heavy rotation, SNUBNOSE (2019).

GRIP maintains his authenticity track-in track-out, a pure lyrical incendiary – spitting the rhymes that ignite the substances of survival, aspiration, and all-in-between, the East Atlanta native is one-of-a-kind and we’re right here for it.

For a true hip hop fan, no one does the art more justice than an underground rapper. For the lovers of R&B and soul, there’s no greater fulfilment than hearing a sultry-smooth voice encapsulate all three of the heaviest emotions: Love, deprivation, and heartbreak.

If you too, are always on the hunt for new tunes, for music that you can feel or just bump to, it’s worth following ‘CaviarMusic,’ a monthly Spotify playlist carefully curated to expose the undiscovered talent you need to hear; everywhere from conscious hip hop to trap music, and contemporary R&B.

Here at Audible Hustle, we’ll be featuring two artists from CaviarMusic each month to get your stupendous playlist sorted. At the top of our must-watch list, recently featured via CaviarMusic, comes these two upcoming artists from both sides of the hip hop family: Glorynade, and Apsolute.

London native Glorynade, proves a beguiling voice beyond the status quo, delivering alternative R&B tunes with a florid-sultry tone, a uniqueness motivated by a fusion of genres: Jazz, soul, R&B, and gospel – a love that stems from her many years singing within a Church choir. Glorynade seals her enthralling sound with a certain delicateness that fans of Adele and Leona Lewis are bound to immerse themselves within.

From other side of the hip hop family, comes Apsolute, an independent rapper on the come up from Massachusetts. With tantalizingly-smooth vocals, a flawless paring with his mellow bars and feel good flow, Apsolute is undoubtedly, an affable talent set to establish a following with the ambition “to create music that is relatable.” If you vibe to the sounds of Russ, the belated Mac Miller, and Chance the Rapper, then Apsolute‘s a sure thing.

Follow CaviarMusic on Twitter, and blaze the all-new playlist for Feb 2020. *Glorynade and Apsolute gained placement on January’s playlist.

Atlantic Records‘ fresh-faced rapper-singer and songwriter, YBN Cordae, stupefies listeners with his debut solo album The Lost Boy – a bona fide and impassioned project well beyond his years.

YBN Cordae, born Cordae Amari Dunston, first made a name for himself as part of the YBN gang, the young “internet rap clique” that went viral. Now, Cordae rightly sets him self apart as an independent artist with the very aptitude to rewrite the rules of the game.

Cordae is undeniably unique by nature, flipping the switch from witty (“RNP” feat. Anderson .Paak) and somewhat comical, to gritty and gripping (“Broke as F**k“), everywhere from spitting full-hearted bars (“Nightmares Are Real” feat. Pusha T) , to delving into soul with mellow vocals; this is one upcoming artist the industry’s bound to watch.

The Lost Boy also features Chance the Rapper, Ty Dolla $ign, Meek Mill, and Arin Ray.
