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.

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.
