It’s Springtime y’all! That means things are heating up, the grass is greener, flowers are blooming and everybody is a little bit happier. We got BAILO, NITTI GRITTI, CRWNS, MONXX, and RAY VOLPE! Let’s GO!
This man is heating up and is for sure on track to catch fire this year because… Wow! Gennaro Bailo, The Queens native is not to be fucked with! (Y’all going listen to me eventually) This man just dropped his second EP on Barong Family titled The Relapse! A Four song EP with straight heat! He has Jeff Kush on one track spitting bars and it is a trap masterpiece. He also just remixed Herobust and Monxx Giant Squiddim and it’s so hard you might need to wear a helmet!
Now this man right here was in a Starting 5 last year, but I wouldn’t be shocked if he makes a comes back! Straight out of Florida, Nitti Gritti is here to shake things up and is bringing it! The Florida Native is someone I see as underrated. Every song I have heard by this man is straight fire! He played OKEECHOBEE earlier this month and wrecked it of course! Just recently he dropped a beautiful remix to Ellie Goulding’s “Lights” and I shit you not it’s so gorgeous and melodic! Nitti did the damn thing with that one!
This guy here had one of the most filthy, yet catchy dubstep songs last year! I’m talking regardless of where you hear it at, your humming it! Mutha fucking Monxx! Josh Carling is fresh out of Peterborough, England and is one hell of a dubstep producer! Hella support from some greats like Herobust, and the Goat himself Excision!
Speaking of Excision, Monxx has been on tour with him opening on the Paradox Tour dropping heat left and right! Monxx did a VIP remix to him and Herobusts sound chattering “Giant Squddim” and it’s for sure rail breaking worthy! He also dropped an amazingly filthy mix titled “Monxx The Paradox Mix“. So while you’re on your way to the show BLAST THIS!
Now coming out of Long Island, New York, this guy right here is called up next because damn it this boy is good! RAY VOLPE ladies and gentleman! The 20-year-old has some great support from Borgore, Getter, and Kill The Noise. He recently dropped a three-song EP titled No Emotion Allowed. This might be a short EP, but it’s just enough for you to break your neck, and if you want more of this Volpe shit, he’s going on a sixteen day U.S. tour and you know he’s gonna be dropping bangers all over the country!
Now Max Chung, but y’all know him as CRWNS, is coming for that number one spot is 2018! Coming out of Chi-Town and making massive waves right now! He just dropped an insane remix to Carnage’s “Learn How To Watch” with Mac Miller and Madeintyo! It goes so hard! He is going on his first U.S. tour The CRWNS Tour, and to make it even better, he’s adding more dates to the tour! CRWNS is also the Editor in chief at RUN THA TRAP!
WHO WILL BE THE NEXT STARTING 5?
