Hailing from Huntsville, Alabama, Rel FromTheQ6 knew at the age of 8 years old he wanted to become a huge rap artist someday. Formally known by the stage name BRASH (Be Real And Stay Humble), Rel decided, along with his producers Enrique 1X & DJ Sleepy D, that the three of them should all be collectively known as BRASH. The trio has been busy bumping out new material for a while now and have recently released “No New Plugs in the Valley”, part 1 of a 3 project series. The project experiments with hip hop production fused with jazz elements. Along with the track Mis Phit, I also recommend checking out the track DOPE, from the same project.
Listen to Mis Phit from the project No New Plugs in the Valley below.
Bryan Long Rx
The year 2017 can be summed up as the year of grinding for many individuals. This Dallas, Texas MC knows all about grinding. Bryan Long Rx has performed at local shows and festivals to get his name out there and also has one EP under his belt titled “Long Time Coming” released last year. This year Bryan has found his signature sound with producer Krausicht. The duo recently released the track Goldeneye. Bryan Long Rx looks to finishes out 2017 strong with releasing more music, merch, features, and music videos.

With over a million of views on Spotify for their previous single Some Other Dude, the band Everywhere is ready to make another huge splash with their new single Moments. The London Alt Rock band describes the single as “a laid-back anthemic retro stomper with a “carpe diem” message.” In my honest opinion, the track is the perfect combo of both rock and a bit of pop that blends together nicely. Moments is available to stream on Spotify. Be on the lookout for more from Everywhere in the very near future.

West Kendall, FL
Aleo Barquin describes his sound as “extremely animated and orchestrates a diverse pallet of instrumentation”. That’s the perfect description for this West Kendell (a section in Miami, FL) MC who is making a lot noise in his city. Aleo indeed brings something different to the table – that table being rap, such as a unique flow and bars, especially on the track Civilized Everglades. He also pulls no strings when it comes to calling out Soundcloud rappers and tweaking the usage and meaning of Pokemon and Spongebob characters for punchlines and metaphors.
Check out the track Whatever from Aleo Barquin’s DONT LET ME DIE project released earlier this year.
