Kay Wattz is the James Brown of Boston. I don’t know anybody that works harder than her. She’s the definition of “booked and busy”. Every time sis posts, it’s a new show, a new cypher or a new interview. I don’t know how she does it because I’m exhausted just looking at her schedule. What’s even crazier is that she gives her absolute all to every single thing she does. She’s a beast on stage and on the mic.
Medino Green just gives me so much life. His raw New York style feels like a throw back to the 90s while also sounding current or fresh. The last time I saw Medino in person, he had this fly ass leopard coat on and that really just sums him up as a person. He’s one of a kind, his performances grab you and keep your attention. While hip hop has cracked the door open for queer women in the mainstream, it still has not given that same opportunity to a man. I think that Medino is that one that could finally break down that final barrier, so make sure you get hip now and don’t jump on his bandwagon later.
Cakeswagg is my baby. I just wanna gush about her for 25 paragraphs. She packed the Middle East for her Candy Cake Season EP release party and it’s no wonder she easily fills rooms. She’s that fucking good. Her #TalkThatTalkTuesday videos are the highlight of my week. I find myself racing to IG to see what beat she tackles next. Just the sheer volume of output from her is staggering. Her latest project is a phenomenal body of work. I’m really happy that I got put on to her and that I’ve also gotten to know her. She’s just as sweet as her name, but don’t play with her neither. That male rapper she flamed recently is probably still nursing his wounds.
Monaveli is the complete package for a rapper ready to breakthrough to the mainstream. She’s stunning, her bars are unmatched and she knows how to craft perfect, catchy, hip hop hits. I saw her recently at Soiree 8 with a live band and my mind was absolutely blown. I’ve already seen her perform live and I was a huge fan of her’s, but not everybody has the raw power to be able to mingle and compliment a band. That live element made her even more dynamic and attention grabbing. And trust, sis is already attention grabbing.
