Dave East, Harlem’s pride and joy, is joined by New York’s rap icon, Nas, on powerhouse single “Godfather 4,” inspired by the real-life Don Corleone himself.
If you’re a true fan of The Godfather, then consider this track as a nitty-gritty insight into the fourth part of the series that Francis Ford Coppola never made – now starring Nas and Dave East.
“Godfather 4” sees East, a protégé of rap god Nas, stepping up as a true curator in a right of his own, taking a cinematic turn with sampling from the musical score, which effortlessly sets the stage for East‘s unparalleled bars that only Nas could flawlessly balance; a hallmark of their co-signing to Mass Appeal Records.
At the same time as proving a lyrical yin-yang, Dave East and Nas successfully tease what’s in-store for East‘s highly anticipated debut studio album Survival.
Survival is set to drop November 8 – stay tuned.
Coined “Atlanta’s Next Great Storyteller,” GRIP is undoubtedly, an artist you need to watch. Now, GRIP returns, making major flames with sophomore album SNUBNOSE – a defiant project that evinces the voice of any Atlanta native caught in the everyday struggle, anywhere from poverty, to displacement and depression – he’s not about the riches, he’s about the real.
GRIP spits bars only pain could motivate, getting a grip on reality, “I need healing and a blessing, mama dealin’ with depression, I know because I deal with it daily but still gon’ kill it in succession,” a verse from the track “Pressed,” sampling the essential soul for GRIP to set off.
Earlier this year, Audible Hustle deemed GRIP a straight “Standout,” following the fiery release of his “Bregma Freestyle II,” a track that proved the artist’s potential to be one of the game’s greatest lyricists, while promoting a sneak peek into his sophomore album SNUBNOSE.
We came, we listened, and we can now confirm, GRIP is one artist that’s here to stay. Don’t just take our word for it, you know what to do…

Swedish-Iranian muse Snoh Aalegra, proves a pure ride-or-die for the new wave of alternative RnB with sophomore album Ugh, those feels again – a celestial, track-by-track portrayal of losing “the one” you didn’t plan on.
Ugh, those feels again, the follow-up album to her well-received debut FEELS (2017), sees an (even more) vulnerable Snoh; baring the complete spectrum of emotion that comes with falling hard (“Situationship“) for what feels like the love of a lifetime (“Find Someone Like You“), to giving it your all (“You“) only to find out that when you finally break all of the smoky mirrors (“Nothing to Me“) – it’s all over and here comes those feels again (“I Didn’t Mean to Fall in Love“).
And finally, when you’re really through… there comes a moment of enlightenment and self-discovery (the ultimate “Peace“).
Simply mesmerising, Snoh is one of the rare few artists that effortlessly demands attention all by herself with no special features in this album – just Snoh, her beatific vocals, a refreshingly-impressive range and of course, to top it all off… Snoh doesn’t just wear her heart on her sleeve, she puts every bit of it into her music.
Hear the bliss below.
