Indigo De Souza’s Any Shape You Take has been praised by the likes of Pitchfork, The Line of Best Fit, Paste, and NME. She’s due to tour the country with The Slaps, Dan Wriggins, Horse Jumper of Love, and others. Her new video “Hold U” (directed by Honey Simone & Garnet Fisher) celebrates that Asheville, NC underground, being shot at Different Wrld, a multi-ethnic, multi-media, LGBTQ+ friendly performance space and offbeat apparel shop.
Following “Scholarship”, his recent collab with Jadakiss, Tae Wall has released “Billie Jeane”. But while “Billie Jeane” isn’t a cover of Michael Jackson’s 1982 hit, Jackson’s spirit hovers over the song – which has been praised by Billboard Hip-Hop. In the “Billie Jeane” video (directed by David Robbins media), Wall shows that he knows all about Jackson’s style, too – while also rocking a vision of his own.
Here to shift the rap music narrative is Custom, a boom-bap rapper who’s here to bring message and substance back to the rap game. Custom bears his life experiences in full transparency in the “Rock Mics Properly” video (directed by Ripper Brown), addressing trauma, political commentary, and what makes him stand out.
