Bobby Capri – Make Moves (Ft. Freddie Gibbs)

*GMAD Premiere* Rapper, Bobby Capri released the first single off his upcoming mixtape, Remote Viewing, with this song entitled, “Make Moves.” It features Freddie Gibbs, but points to Capri’s undeniable potential as a rising talent in a saturated hip-hop industry. A raw sounding track, Bobby Capri’s story-telling verses thrive over the authentic hip-hop beat. He raps about hustling through adversity and even drops his own ‘Make moves chorus’ adding his own swag to this smooth hip-hop record. Take a listen to “Make Moves” by Bobby Capri featuring Freddie Gibbs and start following Bobby Capri on Twitter for new music off his upcoming LP dropping soon! Enjoy.

Under Great Lights – She Was A Dancer (Acoustic)

Stop what you are doing and listen to the beautiful message of this song. One of our favorite upcoming groups is Under Great Lights, and today they released their first visual content. They took a song they wrote called “She Was A Dancer” about the struggles of a young woman and went into a studio and poured their heart into an acoustic version of it. These guys have tons of new music they are about to release, but if you have missed their last two releases check them out here. Spread the positive vibes and enjoy!

Cal Scruby – Gold Coins (Official Video)

Back in February Cal Scruby released the audio for “Gold Coins”, and today he releases a professional video for the track. While the video makes Cal look like a million bucks and is super clean, I hope he gets a lil more unique with his treatments for future releases. As you can hear right after the beat drops, this kid has some unbelievable talent: he can spit, sounds unique, and can cover topics from party tracks to serious topics and not seem corny. With some memorable video treatments that have this kind of quality, the sky is the limit for this Ohio native. He is easily one of our favorite upcoming emcees and should be on everyone’s radar for the rest of 2014. Enjoy!

A cut off Clinton Spark‘s upcoming EP, ICONoclast dropped today and it’s DOPE. “UV Love” is a pop-sounding, EDM record featuring hip-hop icon T.I. The song has an incredibly groovey pop sound that may have the potential to blow up on the radio. It comes as no surprise that the 1Oak Las Vegas resident is bringing the heat the summer as he’s already dropped off the hottest mixtapes these past few months. Expect Iconoclast to be a major project for the mixmaster, Clinton Sparks, when it drops August 12th via Photo Finish Records Republic. Stream “UV Love” by Clinton Sparks featuring T.I. and start following Clinton Sparks on Twitter for new material off the EP coming soon. Enjoy!

Just a couple weeks ago we premiered OnCue’s newest video for “This View From Here” and it went to the top of the GMAD Charts pretty quickly, well today we are back with a new premier and we imagine it will have the same result. OnCue links up with long time friend Brenton Duvall for an amazingly smooth remix to “Way Too Far“, which he dropped the original audio to late last year. This is all in anticipation for Cuey’s new project Angry Young Man that will be dropping September 3rd. Go give OnCue a follow on Twitter and enjoy!

The first time we came across Raury we were amazed at the amount of talent this guy has. With that being said every video and single he has released since has been a masterpiece. Each video being a motion picture quality visual and each single showing the diversity he has it’s a no brainer that he is one to watch in 2014. Here the ATL native is back with another single titled “Cigarette Song” and touches on the fact we all have addictions.
