Cuzzy Q – Late Bloomer

I guess it is high time to present some decent rapping here, don’t you think? It will be brought to us by Cuzzy Q, a 19-year-old artist from Chicago, who among his hip hop peers has been the last one to publish a proper project – hence the title of the album is Late Bloomer. But I don’t see anything wrong in taking one’s time to hone his craft in order to eventually come up with something extraordinary. This is exactly what happened in the case of this American artist as Late Bloomer is full of potential that is ready to explode in the near future. And then, who knows, maybe the Q in Cuzzy Q will be as valuable as the one in Q-Tip’s nickname?

Kweku Collins – Wierdo

It would not be surprising for anyone to read that the genre that appears on OSoM is mostly electronic music but probably some of you have noticed that soul or hip hop like sounds have also made it here from time to time. That is why I was more than happy to discover Wierdo, a debut release from Chicago-based teenager Kweku Collins.

The artist is just 16 years old but has already managed to find a perfect balance between elements of rap, soul and hip hop. Kweku has found his musical home at The Dope Supremacy which is a collective of skateboarders, musicians and artists and on some tracks he used the help from other producers (Jack MKZ, Adam Rubman and Dazed for Daze) but I am sure that with time this boy will be able to achieve really big things even on his own.

Young Smoke – Destroy Him My Robots

David Davis (Young Smoke) is just an 18-year-old DJ based in Chicago and connected to its famous juke and footwork scene. If you wonder what kind of genre is that, the answer is simple – it is the music that requires very fast and rapid footwork so that you almost do not touch the ground. Probably that is why Davis calls himself ‘Flight Muzik Producer’.

Anyway, Destroy Him My Robots is a song that is included in Young Smoke’s debut album named Space Zone. Just try dancing to it…

You can buy the whole album or any particular song here.
