Miami's seasoned veterans and rising artists have been busy as hell this week.
Wynwood native Thirstin Howl III paid homage to the late Sean Price alongside fellow OG spitters Sadat X and R.A. the Rugged Man. Meanwhile, Zoey Dollaz proves he does not give a shit about your furniture, and Grammy-winning songwriter and rapper Eskeerdo descended onto Hialeah as the reigning Cuban Jesus in his latest project.
Check out the rest of the tunes that surfaced this week in Dade county below.
5. Eskeerdo, Cuban Jesus EP.
Over the weekend, Hialeah’s own Eskeerdo dropped off his latest project, Cuban Jesus. The six-track EP features his lead single “Weekend Behavior,” which has yet to be dropped from rotation on radio stations like 99 JAMZ (WEDR-FM). The project has zero features, opting instead to focus on Eskeerdo’s rapping abilities and lyricism.
4. Zoey Dollaz, “Couches” (Video).
Freebandz/Epic Records signee Zoey Dollaz runs up one hell of a tab destroying all the furniture in the club in his new visual for “Couches.” In the clip, the North Miami native and his crew hit their local gentlemen’s club to party with all the 305's twerking professionals as they strip down to the bare necessities. While the dancers pursue their naked hustle to the lead single off his Port-Au-Prince mixtape, Zoey makes sure to jump around and mess up every couch in the club.
3. Fat Nick, “Get a Grip.”
No one can be like Fat Nick. The budding Miami rapper flexes on the competition with his latest single, “Get a Grip.” Nick links up with his boy Danny Wolf to craft his followup single to his track “Nina” and his latest mixtape, When the Lean Runs Out.
2. Sadat X featuring R.A. the Rugged Man and Thirstin Howl III, “Industry Outcasts” (Video).
Sadat X is making sure to make noise with his new album Agua, and he’s shining a light on some of his oldest friends in his latest visual. In the official video for “Industry Outcasts,” Wynwood legend Thirstin Howl III and seasoned emcee R.A the Rugged Man join the Nubian rapper as they flaunt their pride for remaining on the outside of the hip-hop industry. Watch all three veterans post up in front of the late Sean Price’s mural in Brooklyn.
1. DJ Twin featuring Rick Ross, Sean Kingston, and Blac Youngsta, "Money Bag."
DJ Twin, who serves as Sean Kingston’s official DJ, has spent a whole lot of time in the studio lately. Back in July, Twin dropped off his Day 1 EP featuring French Montana, Famous Dex, Lil Yachty, Jeremih, Chief Keef, Yo Gotti, Lil Herb, and, of course, Sean Kingston. Not long after releasing his collaborative effort with Kodak Black, Twin is back with his next big single “Money Bag,” featuring Kingston, Rick Ross, and CMG rapper Blac Youngsta.
