Results – I Got It

Results - I GOT IT (Cover)

Earlier the homie Jay Holz linked me to a brand new submission. Funny thing is, Results has already been featured on the site. Dopeness. Anyways, he releases the up-tempo energy hyped single entitled “I Got It”. The single was produced by Scott Styles. I’m digging this simply because of how catchy it is. Most submissions we get, we only press play once, and I admit I pressed play about three times. Hopefully we’ll see more music from Results in the upcoming year, but until then, check out the single after the jump!

NQM Submission: Latrell James – Distance

Latrell James - One

Today’s NQM Submission comes from an artist/producer from Boston, MA who goes by the name of Latrell James. He’s been following the site for awhile and decided to shoot over something to post. The self produced “Distance”, sounds good, and the chorus catches my ears. Latrell recently released a project entitld Lemonade Stand, but this single “Distance” will be on his forthcoming project. He’s gearing up to release a new project this spring entitled Twelve. To keep the buzz going he’s set to release new music every month.

gQ-marley-dreams

Today’s NQM Submission comes from San Antonio, Texas born and bred artist, gQ Marley. Back in December he released an album entitled DREAM II: Revenge of the NERD. The lead single “The Fame”, flips a classic Lauryn Hill record “Doo Wop: That Thing”, which Platinum Pat does a great job of sampling. On “The Fame”, gQ Marley pays homage to it’s predecessor but transcends with a hip hop twist. That record “Vices” on the album is so smooth.

Grab his album, here. Stream the lead single after the jump.

This compilation proves that NYC is a force to be dealt with from now until the world ends. Props to the homie Julius for this.

NQM Submission: Chris Fields (feat. Jared Xavier) – So High (Prod. by Lakim)

Hey y’all. I missed y’all too. I know it’s been forever a few days past that, but life changes…and ultimately for the better if you make the decisions to put you there.

Welp…now that that’s outta the way. The next NQM submission comes from Chris Fields with assistance from Jared Xavier. Nice little diddy about a guy and his girl. The beat is cool adn the melody flows and it’s just a little something to hear on your lunch. Or whatever timezone you’re in.
