This page will be updated every three months or so, as a list of all your favourite songs that you haven’t heard yet…
I’ll try and pick things that aren’t already very well known, otherwise what’s the point?
Without further ado, in no particular order:

Roy Woods – Gwan Big Up Urself, Instinct, Get You Good (Songs)
Tory Lanez (Artist) – particularly his mixtapes, mainly Chixtape series – not on Spotify so use SoundCloud. Personal Favourites being Chixtape 3, Chixtape 4 and his debut album, I Told You
Logic (Artist) – most underrated rapper of all time – huge talent. ‘Everybody’ being an incredibly powerful album, addressing social & political issues from the view of a young bi-racial man.
11:11 (Artist) – I assure you, his music is much more creative than his album titles (11:11 and 11 / 11) – Shoutout I’m Good, Don’t Worry, You (Songs) and his whole, four song, second album, 11 / 11.
August Alsina (Artist) – Special Mention to Testify from his first major album (Testimony), incredible. Honourable Mentions to The Encore, Job, Song Cry, No Love (Remix), FML, Kissin’ On My Tattoos & Why I Do It… To name a few.
