Sixteenleo is “No Pretenda”

I’ve been out for awhile, starting the next phase of Curated Flame.

In that time, I have been contacted by dozens of wanna be rappers, sending me various dms or emails and unfortunately, I just haven’t been impressed. That is, until now.

Sixteenleo, might not have the best name, and he’s still very raw and early, I mean he literally only has 19 followers on Soundcloud right now. But he impressed me enough that I am writing for the first time in a couple months.

When I first got his email and saw that he said I have “heavy anxiety and that’s why I been in my room making music for the last two years” I rolled my eyes, I am not even going to lie though. I’ve heard this before, from this generation of rappers whose top 5’s all have at least 4 “Lil’s”.

Then when I started listening to his first track, I liked it, but I was kind of annoyed that I liked it. I’m thinking to myself, this kid’s just doing it as a joke, but you know what, fxck it. I think it might not be a joke, he’s really committed to the craft, he switches up his flows, and his awkward flows are even dope.

If his tracks, Rick James and No Pretenda, are any inkling of what his music is going to be like in the future, then I think this dude is going places. His style sounds like a blend of Lil Pump & Hooligan Chase and I fux with it heavy.

Lil Toe is back!

I have been obsessed with the rapper Lil Toe since I first discovered him in early 2017 and he’s probably one of the artists I have written about the most on this site. In fact I just checked and there are at least 14 articles that are expressly about him on this site.

I’m also definitely dressing up as him for halloween this year, so yeah definitely a stan with Lil Toe. However just like I am a stan with Eminem, Boosie, Young Buck, and Ilovemakonnen, that doesn’t mean I can’t tell when one of these artists releases something that’s weak or I simply don’t like. So with some of toe’s more recent tracks, admittedly, I haven’t been feeling them. Song’s like “Dick on fleek” or “Side bitch song” haven’t really struck a chord with me but that’s changed with his newest track and visuals “Search Me Up”.

Lil Toe is at his best in search me up so if you haven’t given this artist a chance yet, you need to do so now!

Major replay value for me, and hopefully for you to.

Also sidenote, look at the cover photo above for the video and tell me that doesn’t look exactly like Kid Trunks with a ski mask on.

Dream Doll “Bundles”

Dream Doll is back with a new video and as for the visuals its classic Dream Doll, a bunch of high production, good entertainment value, and tons of plastic. But this song is kind of mediocre.

 

“Pyrex & The Egg Beater” : Meet YBN Dougie, the Dallas rapper up next.

I have been writing fewer posts on the blog recently because of two reasons;

  1. I recently took over as the content curator of two nice size instagram accounts.
  2. I want to keep the posts on this blog to strictly the best content I can for you all, the readers.

Now I know I especially haven’t done an interview with a rapper in a minute or anyone for that matter, but recently I saw a posse cut and the first rapper on the track was someone going by the name YBN Dougie.

This was the verse I saw;

 

Bruh if you listen to that verse and don’t come away thinking “daaamn that homie just killed it” or something to that effect, then I don’t trust the music ear you claim.

I mean I keep my rapper interviews to a minimum because I want to be the site that is known for showcasing the artists that will blow up next. So far I have interviewed Elle Teresa, Hooligan Chase, Icy Narco, IloveFriday, and GlokkNine, and now I think that if Dougie continues to put out music with the flare he showed in that above verse, he will be the next one to blow.

“Yall are so addicted to being hopeless victims, yall could crash a plane and blame the road conditions”

Besides sounding very much like an angrier version of G-Eazy, Tom MacDonald delivers a stand out track and visual.

“Rover” Lil Ronny MothaF

Lil Ronny MothaF is an artist I only became aware of by name recently but it turns out I been listening one of his songs for awhile.

Turns out that maybe I have been to one to many strip clubs or maybe Pittsburgh happens to be a region that this song got heavy play in, but I thought the song “Throw That Ass In A Circle” was way bigger then I guess it actually is.

However it seems the video for the track has only gotten 2.1 million views on YouTube in 3 years, way under what I would have expected for the amount of times I have heard this song in a Pittsburgh nightclub or strip club.

But wait it gets better.

The artist who made that song seems to have been making an evolution of sorts on the underground and now his music has taken a more aggressive approach and I honestly like it.

His videos vary in views and I didn’t seem to find to much information on his transformation out there but for an example of what he’s growing into check out his new music video, Rover.

Congratulations to OakerDidIt for producing “Why They Mad” by Gutta100

I am all about the lyrics of a song, like I can’t understand how people say they don’t pay attention to the lyrics they just pay attention to the beat. But I do know that the beat is everything, its the key essential part for a song to spread like wildfire. And a couple days ago I wrote about the song “Why They Mad” by Gutta100, a song making waves on the florida underground and online.

Well it turns out that the beat was produced by the homie OakerDidIt, a producer we interviewed a while back.

Stream the song on Spotify today!

This might be the one for Wifisfuneral

I have been seeing Wifisfuneral around YouTube and the internet in general, for I feel like forever now. Hell, I wrote about him in one of my first post on this site last year. However he’s never really had a song that took him out of being a fixture on the soundcloud scene. But this new track with YBN Nahmir, might just be the one. I think it’s a banger and is the first song from Wifisfuneral that will be getting steady replay from me.
