Max Fullard is a rapper who is a part of the Rebel E movement based in Virginia. After noticing the increasing use of the word "Trill" in the music industry, Max has decided to tell us what this word means to him. He does this without being flashy or having gold grills be the centerpiece of his music. He instead sticks to good lyrics, a laid-back beat and gives us examples of his influences throughout the song. It may not be what many now expect from a song called "Trill" but it is a great piece of music. Check out the video below.
Rome Montana is an up and comer representing Richmond, Virginia and leader of the BUTTRWRLD movement. His fourth project Destination Landed produced entirely by Vick Music is a very well put together mixtape that one can enjoy from start to finish. The lyrics are inspired by his surroundings in his hometown and his daily life. Describing him as impressive maybe an understatement considering he is only 20 years old and has put out such a high quality project. For a couple of tracks he is joined by BUTTRWRLD's Matty Da Kidd and Spook who do not disappoint either. It would be hard to pick a favorite track on this one but "In Control" really stood out for me and it does a good job of concluding the mixtape. Stream and download Destination Landed below.
