In late June, Miami rapper Dramatic Thought released his debut EP, Unmasked. He's been doing some heavy promo for the project and most recently dropped the video for "Vice City," the eighth track off the EP. "Vice City" is the second track off of Unmasked to get the visual treatment; back in November, Dramatic Thought dropped the video for "Climb," the EP's first single.
In true Vice City fashion, Dramatic Thought pulls up on the hood of an old school car, rocking his Dwayne Wade jersey (no, not the new Bulls jersey, the Miami Heat one of course). He pulls off in the classic car and drives back to his crib, where he meets up with a girl who seems more than excited to see him. Next stop: a house party, where Dramatic's friends sing along for the third verse.
With some semi-gothic production from Shy Boogs and a catchy chorus, "Vice City" should be rocking all over Miami (and everywhere else)!
"Vice City"- and the rest of Unmasked- was produced, recorded and mixed by Shy Boogs in the Gallery Room and mastered by Key-Low in the Cyber Suite.
Looks like someone's got Craft Monroe's attention. For "Vibe," Monroe tapped on frequent collaborator SkinnyFromThe9 to handle the chorus while he focused on lacing the track with bar after bar about this girl.
Skinny started off the track with, "I can't get you off my mind/ Shawty you a dime/ Girl please be mine/You are one of a kind/ I wanna let you know that I'm feeling your vibe."
The energy balance that's created when the two 908/Bluntside rappers collab is quite dope. Skinny, who's usually in charge of the hook, gives the tracks an energetic, radio and club-ready vibe. Skinny's energy gives Craft the opportunity to focus solely on showing off his pen game.
"I got five on me, five on me/ That means 250/ Split that, gave her half because she ride for me/ With that, we on the I-95 doing zigzags," raps Craft on his last verse.
"Vibe" was recorded and mixed by Shy Boogs in The Gallery Room at So Amazin Studios.
Can this be the same girl that Craft and Skinny were talking about in "Main Thing"? Hmm...
New York native Anthony Cruz goes by Brova Smoove when he gets behind the mic. He recently teamed up with Key-Low, an engineer at So Amazin Studio and the two have been able to take Brova's sound to a whole new level.
One of the first tracks that Brova recorded with Key-Low was "Let Me Talk Mah Shyt," where he's feeling himself and is ready to let loose with a tatted chick he's had his eyes on. He shows off his vocals and melodies on the hook, singing "I'm feeling so turned up/ I ain't have fun in a while/ She got that summer body/ Shawty come close to me."
Just one day after sharing "Let Me Talk My Shyt," the Bronx native released "Real or Fake." Here, Brova lets everyone know that he isn't here for the drama and distractions, he's focused solely on getting his money. He doesn't do much rapping here, rather keeps it melodic all the way through, which is pretty dope given the concept.
Both "Let Me Talk Mah Shyt" and "Real or Fake" were recorded by Key-Low in The Gallery Room at So Amazin Studios.
While B3B3 (pronounced Bay-Bay) is finalizing her self-titled debut album, she decided to team up with director Nimi Hendrix to give her single "Threat" the visual treatment.
In the video, B3B3 finds herself waking up handcuffed to a hospital bed (rough night?), but quickly gets up, walks out and pulls off in a Mercedes like nothing. "You ain't never been a threat to me," she raps as she's cruising in the Benz. Her next stop: meeting up with producer Just Blaze, who gifts her a leather briefcase. The purple-haired MC then pulls off and crashes a dinner party, where she's quick to pull the trigger on a girl who attempted to attack her with a sword. DJ Jazzy Joyce also makes a cameo.
If you're wondering why nobody seems to be a threat to B3B3, that's because they probably aren't even close to her level. The New Jersey native isn't just dope behind the mic, she's also dope behind the boards, usually mixing most of her tracks. Her resume doesn't stop there though, she's even opened up for Common and Taleb Kweli where she proved to be able to get a large crowd going.
"Threat" was produced by The Allies and finalized by Shy Boogs in The Gallery Room at So Amazin Studios.
Fifth Harmony recently snatched a spot on the Billboard Top 40 with their single "Flex" featuring Fetty Wap. "Flex" is Fifth Harmony's second single from their second album 7/27. The single's climb onto the Top 40 comes only a few weeks after the release of its official video.
"Flex" was produced by So Amazin's Brian "Peoples" Garcia, making it his third Top 40 produced track and the fifth Top 40 track that was mixed in The Gallery Room.
It seems like we've been waiting for Skinny's project for a quite sometime. However, the wait is over! His debut mixtape "HighlyClouted" has finally hit SoundCloud. The 15-track project includes the singles "No Lie" featuring Fvrthr and "Shawty You Bad" and is laced with production from PlatinumSellers, VybeBeatz, Frenzzy, So Amazin's CezBeats and more. "HighlyClouted" has the perfect balance of party tracks, gangsta love songs and laid-back vibes. Stream the full project below.
"HighlyClouted" was recorded in the Red Room and the Gallery Room at So Amazin Studios and was mixed by Shy Boogs in the Gallery Room.
Just a day after sharing his take on Mike Jones' "Flossin," Fetty Wap shares his rendition of another track from the 2000s, Mystikal's "Shake It Fast." The freestyle is titled "Shake Dat Azz," and shows off Fetty's singing and melodies more than his rapping.
Did Fetty Wap kill this Neptunes beat or what ?!
This freestyle was recorded in The Gallery Room at So Amazin Studios by Brian "Peoples" Garcia.
It's been a minute since KC Bandz dropped some new material, but the New Jersey rapper is back with a new banger entitled "Bad Gal RiRi" just in time for the summer. The Rihanna-inspired record is the perfect track for DJs to play between Drake's "One Dance" and Rihanna's "Work" to keep any party popping. Speaking of DJs, Hot 97's DJ Drewski gave the record its first radio spin over the weekend. Will "Bad Gal RiRi" take over the summer?
"Bad Gal RiRi" was produced by The LX and mixed by Peoples in The Gallery Room at So Amazin Studios.
Earlier this year New Jersey based reggeaton duo ConeXion dropped their single "Yo Quiero Saber." Today, they've released the official video which was directed by Will Laron Green of Foundation Digital Films.
In the comical video, Drew's girl catches him texting another girl and is quick to drop him and move on...to a nerdy guy (played by AR). Drew sneaks around, following his ex-girl and the nerd on a couple of dates while pleading to get her back. However, while Drew and the nerd are competing for her attention they soon find out that she was occupied with a completely different guy.
Make sure to follow them on Instagram @ConeXionOfficial to keep up with their new releases.
"Yo Quiero Saber" was recorded and mixed by Shy Boogs in the Gallery Room at So Amazin Studios. Thanks for the shout out at the end of the video guys!
About a month ago, Nader released his lead single "Take It Back" from his upcoming EP, Crimes of Passion. Today, he's back with the release of the project's second single, "DYRLM," short for Do You Really Love me.
On the record, Nader looks back at the relationship between him and his significant other and questions if she even loves him anymore. He admits that she gave off some red flags during the beginning stages of their relationship that he chose to ignore in hopes of making it work. Now, the girl might be leaving him for someone else.
"You don't even love me, do ya?/ You never gave enough"
"DYRLM" was produced by common collaborator Shy Boogs and was mastered by Key-Low, both at So Amazin Studios. Click below to listen to the full track.
Miami based rapper Dramatic Thought has finally released his debut EP, Unmasked. The 10-track project was fully produced by Shy Boogs and includes features from Shy Boogs as well as Mar Ortiz. Lead by the single "Climb," UnMasked serves as the follow up to Dramatic Thought's first mixtape, The Preview, released back in 2011.
UnMasked was produced Shy Boogs and mastered by Key-Low in the Gallery Room and Cyber Suite, respectively, at So Amazin Studios. Head over to Spotify or Google Play to stream/download the entire project.

New Jersey rapper Craft Monroe is celebrating the five-day countdown until the release of his debut mixtape, Bluntside God, by releasing a third single. With his first two singles "Been That Way" and "Main Thing" already doing numbers, the Bluntside God returns today with "FWYS" (F*ck What You Sayin).
Seems like Craft is tired of hearing people's two cents. Sounding more confident and focused than ever, he hopped on the Menace produced track to express how he really feels about any talk that might distract him.
"Fuck what you saying/ I need it, I get it, got no time for playing," he raps on the intro and the chorus.
"FWYS" was engineered and mixed by Shy Boogs in The Gallery Room at So Amazin Studios.
Today's been one of those days where as soon as you're done listening to a new song, a new release hits it the internet. Fetty Wap is the latest artist to give us new music, with not one but two releases. Back in April, the "Again" crooner turned to his SoundCloud to release three new tracks, "Westside," "Queen of the Zoo" and "My Environment." However, "Westside" and "Queen of the Zoo" were removed shortly after. Today, the "Trap Queen" crooner has released the official versions of "Westside" which features Snoop Dogg and "Queen of the Zoo" via iTunes/Spotify.
It makes sense that Fetty recruited Snoop Dogg for "Westside," which finds them in love with Westside shorties. Despite the title, the track was produced by ATL's own London On Da Track.
For his second release, Fetty gave us another gangsta love song, "Queen of the Zoo". The song reflects the "Trap Queen" theme but its vibe is more reflective of "Rewind" or "D.A.M."
"So beautiful, and I ain't never seen nobody like you/ If I get the chance to put a ring on it, Imma wife you," he sings about the girl. Whether he's referring to the same girl as the one from "Trap Queen" is unclear. The song is set to be included in Fetty Wap's sophomore album.
"Queen of the Zoo" was produced by Yung Lan and co-produced by So Amazin's Shy Boogs. The single was recorded and mixed by Peoples in The Gallery Room at So Amazin Studios.
For his first release since his debut mixtape The Fvr, Further (styled as FVRTHR) takes us back to 1998 with his own version of "Make It Hot" by Nicole Wray and Missy Elliot. The Twin Life artist keeps it melodic but offers a quicker flow than the original as he tells the world about his boo- a Colombian chick from Harlem.
"I know, I know myself/ I want you girl and no one else," he sings.
Did FVRTHR kill this track or what?! "Make It Hot" was recorded by Peoples in The Gallery Room at So Amazin Studios. If you haven't already, make sure to also stream his mixtape, The Fvr, which is also available on his SoundCloud and was recorded and mixed in The Gallery Room. The Fvr includes production from Peoples and Shy Boogs as well as features from Remy Boy Monty, KC Bandz and House Party.
Bluntsiiiide! With his debut mixtape Bluntside God only 15 days away, Craft Monroe just released his second single, "Main Thing" featuring his 908 comrade SkinnyFromThe9. Skinny creates a melodic chorus, singing, "I ain't f*cking with my old bitch/ Me and you, we think the same thing/ I know you wanna be my main thing," over the Menace produced track. Craft takes a more serious approach on his verses but keeps the energy high, firing crazy metaphors in practically every other line. Though the song is mainly about girls, the Blunt$ide God made sure to include a couple bars that noted how lit the weed and alcohol have him feeling. Craft Monroe and Skinny might have a summer banger on their hands with this one!
"Main Thing" was produced by Menace and recorded and mixed by Shy Boogs in The Gallery Room at So Amazin Studios. Click below to listen. Make sure to also listen to Craft's first single "Been That Way"
We've all done things we wish we hadn't, and Nader seems to be no exception. Through his first single, "Take It Back," from his forthcoming debut EP Crimes of Passion, the New Jersey native creates an anthem for all those times we've done something regretful. Over the Shy Boogs produced track, Nader expresses that he was wrong for leaving his last lover and wishes he could take back any hurtful words that may have ruined their relationship.
"I want you back right now/ Can't beleive how it all went down/ All the words that came out my mouth/ I'll take it back now"
"Take It Back" was produced, recorded and mixed by Shy Boogs and mastered by Keylow in The Gallery Room at So Amazin Studios. Click below to listen to the song.
