Austin artist Junior Flexwell has released his new F F S W single and video. He’s in a good place after his recent Ralph JunioR EP was released to positive acclaim. Leading up to the release he had shared the stage with artists like Trae, Curren$y and Kendrick Lamar as well as garnering several noteworthy SXSW performances.
“This new single is the introduction to the new body of work Junior I’m preparing” he says. “I understand the sound people wanna hear and I spent the last few months finding myself inside of that sound.”
Austin-based rapper The Teeta is on a hot streak of dissociated trap beats and pinpoint delivery. Inspired by the music, street style, and prolificacy of rap heavyweights like Lil B and Chief Keef, The Teeta has released three mixtapes of lean-tinged tracks in 2017 alone. As a founding member of legendary Austin music collective Team Next he’s broken out as a truly unique figure in the Austin music scene as the pioneer of his self-coined “new age pretty boy trap.” His latest mixtape, Killstreak II, was produced entirely by Bossbeatz. The pair are a match made in heaven, both helping each other expand their musical dimensions. On the album’s lead single, “Ghosts,” Teeta takes a page from Drake’s vocal repertoire, half-singing a tale of a ruined relationship. Teeta is truly at his best when he’s being honest, vocalizing and spitting triplets over turn-up 808 hi-hats. He dropped by Studio 1A on Thursday to perform some of his new tracks. Miss the session?
