This is a major, major development. Lil Bizzy, the son of Bone Thug’s Bizzy Bone, is working with Rashad and Elev8tor Music and they released their first single together titled ‘Then Smoke’ recently. This has a classic West Coast feel to it despite the Bizzy & Rashad being Ohio natives. ‘Shad can do no wrong and it looks like he might be developing a potential star in Lil Bizzy. – malbin

With production credits from Syk Sense & Tunji Ige on this track, my eyes lit up when I saw this on the Fashionably-Early Soundcloud home page. Khalid is an 18 year old singer out of Texas but you’ll be in disbelief at his age after listening to one of his songs. This man is many years ahead of his time and has some major production to match his soulful vocals. ‘Location’ feels like his most complete song to date, so don’t be surprised if he’s making serious moves after the release of this song. – malbin

This man Rashad is forever pushing out gems. Ohio’s own The 3rd Power, a hip-hop group that the talented producer/singer is apart of, drops their first single since 2014 (!!) with ‘The March’. According to the tracks bio, the groups album is finally dropping this year and this track should get fans hyped. ‘Shad is on the mic rapping with his homies over his mesmeric production and you couldn’t ask for more. When is ‘Shad going to get his credit? – malbin

The Farrow has an absolute banger on his hands with ‘I’m On A Wave’. I had actually stumbled upon Farrow earlier this year but I wasn’t feeling what I was hearing until this track. While the track is not too unique, it’s an undeniable banger and it’s hard to ask for anything else from a track. After doing some research, the song is starting pick up on different platforms and is being distributed by Sony, so this might start a new wave for summer 2016. – malbin

Wrapping things up we’ve got a really clean, well-produced song from singer Brandyn Burnette. In just a few days this new, pop anthem garnered nearly 50k plays on Soundcloud, a number that’s steadily growing. The catchy tune isn’t anything out of the box, or mind blowing necessarily but it’s so beauty is executed and showcased in perfect form. – Trixx
