Miami’s top-tier artists like Pitbull and Rick Ross have dropped monumental records throughout the week. While we wait for DJ Khaled to drop his next single off Major Key, rising artists like Bizzy Crook, Bobby Biscayne, and Denzel Curry hold it down for Dade County with fresh tunes of their own.
Meanwhile, local talent like Miramar’s Murph and West Palm’s Oyabun make waves throughout the Sunshine State with their latest tracks hitting the web this week. Check out the latest music from South Florida’s dopest lyricists below.
6. Bizzy Crook, “The Come Back”
Broward’s own Bizzy Crook is back to business on his latest record, “The Come Back.” The jazzy yet hard-hitting single allows the Miramar native to dispel all negative thoughts about his brief hiatus and vent the current struggles that plague his life at the moment. With the help of the Mekanics and Harry Fraud behind the boards, the kid Crook unleashes impressive wordplay that emphasizes how much real rap matters. Be on the lookout for more new music from the Tidal Discovery artist coming soon.
5. Bobby Biscayne, “Paris O.G.”
Bobby Biscayne takes off to find peace and serenity while high up in the mountains in his new video for his single “Paris O.G.,” produced by Purp Dogg. With no shortage of Hennessy and ounces of weed on deck, Biscayne brings a voluptuously sexy chick, his homie Space, and Rob Dade out to a secluded house high up in the mountains of California for a reckless getaway from the lavish life of South Beach. The video is the followup to his previous single, “Cream.”
4. Kent Jones, “Don’t Mind (Remix)"
Loyal followers of DJ Khaled’s Snapchat have known about the remix to Kent Jones’ “Don’t Mind” for quite some time. As if cosigns from Fat Joe and Eric Bellinger and his number one single reaching gold status weren’t enough, now the 23-year-old artist is rubbing elbows with Mr. 305 and Weezy F. Baby on the official remix of “Don’t Mind.” Pitbull gives his full blessings to the rising star out of Dade County in the opening of the song, followed closely by Lil Wayne's verse. Kent Jones closes out the track with a fresh, unheard verse of his own to make the remix even more unique.
3. Oyabun, “Goodbye”
Rapper Oyabun sets a somber tone with mesmerizing guitar chords and melodic vocals on his fresh offering, "Goodbye." With the help of fellow emcee Enrich, the Brooklyn-born rapper who hails from Palm Beach County croons about the heartbreaking pain he feels as he part ways with his true love. The unique acoustic guitar loops and uplifting percussion pattern make it one of the most upbeat yet emotional records of the summer thus far.
2. Denzel Curry feat. Boogie and Allan Kingdom, “Today”
Carol City’s own Denzel Curry prepares to embark on his Black Metal Terrorist tour this fall by debuting brand new music on The FADER. The Imperial rapper enlists “All Day” emcee Allan Kingdom and tour mate Boogie to throw down on his new single, “Today.” Curry continues to spread a dark net over the music industry with his ominous rhymes in the single produced by FNZ. The tour is expected to kick off this September in Chicago with his hometown show in Miami on October 9 at III Points in Wynwood. Get hype for the tour with “Today.”

1. Murph, “Blow”
South Florida’s Murph celebrates the release of his new single “Blow” and his birthday in the best way possible. The Miramar native lives out any young man's dream by renting out an exotic yacht for his squad and a flock of beautiful girls in his new video, which premiered on VIBE this week. Murph’s fresh single off his forthcoming project, Position of Power, flows smoothly as a small army of sexy ladies dance around him. Murph busts out his rough rhymes and humble flow on the track produced by Rich Muzik in an effort to prove he was “the ace of his hood before Khaled cut him a check.”
