Dee Nyce. Unsigned Artist of the Week.

Our Unsigned Artist of the Week is Dee Nyce from Brooklyn, NY. Dee Nyce takes his lyrical ability and turns the rap game upside down with his subject matter. Instead of taking the route of praising and uplifting the life of the ghetto, he takes a step back and criticizes the glorification of the hood. However, instead of rapping in metaphors and similes when referring to the hood, he decides to take a more literal approach and express his ideas as he sees them.

Not only does Dee Nyce criticize the glorification of the hood but he also gives insights and alternative ways to reach one's full potential in life. A proud father and a voice that goes against the common mentality of the streets, he is an artist that his fans can be proud to listen to.

My Favorites from Dee Nyce are "Ignorant Shit" and "I'm Proud of You"

Suave the Ape. Unsigned Artist of the Week.

Our Unsigned Artist of the Week is Suave the Ape from New Brunswick, New Jersey. Suave displays an uncanny aptitude for wordplay and has the ability to flow smoothly on a variety of sample heavy beats. He has the ability to put together his words in a way that is clever and refreshing to the ears, while his flow and rhyme schemes are reminiscent of the underground sounds of MF Doom made all his own.

Along with the clever sampling that ranges from Old Hip Hop sounds to Obama snippets and movie quotes , Suave redefines the sound of the always creative underground scene.

My Favorites from Suave the Ape are "Can't Magnetize Me" and "Planet Falls"

Soulja. Unsigned Artist of the Week.

Our Unsigned Artist of the Week is Soulja from Queens, NY. Soulja brings to the table lyrics that express a pure and conscious view of the world around him from both a local and political standpoint. From topics about family to the ongoing conflict in Tibet, he uses his knowledge and understanding of familiar and foreign topics to give his listeners a fresh new perspective of the overall power of Hip Hop to be a voice of the people.

As Soulja grows, those who chose to follow him as a fan will benefit from an artist who uses his gifts not only to entertain but also to educate.

My Favorites from Soulja are "Go" and "Just Tryin' 2 Make U See"

Dru. Unsigned Artist of the Week.

Our Unsigned Artist of the Week is Dru from Brooklyn, NY. Dru boasts massive verbal capabilities and puts together rhymes that are still humble enough to be understood by those who appreciate the art of true Hip Hop. He is also a very rare find in that Dru  has the ability to compliment a complex beat and ride it eloquently instead of shy away from it.

With a swagger to match his creativity and persona, he has what it takes to give a thoroughly entertaining live performance along with songs that you can pop in you iPod and vibe to.

My favorites from Dru are, "Bullshit as Usual" and "Winter"

Sene. Unsigned Artist of the Week.

Our Unsigned Artist of the Week for this week is Sene from Brooklyn, NY. Sene brings a smooth flow that reminds one of LA but then hits you with a punchline that reminds you that this is a Brooklyn rhymer. He exudes a hood sensibility but still manages to give off a persona of a genuine person, someone you can chill with.

He has the ability to take a positively mellow track or a jazzy up tempo beat and make it into whatever he desires whether it be about a gold digging woman or about literally doing whatever you want, he entertains lyrically with every track.

My favorites from Sene are "Whateva Wheneva" and "Im Sayin"
