The Breaks: Last Week’s Hip-Hop Happenings

This installment of the Breaks features theatrics in the DMV hip-hop scene as Wale once again lands in the middle of Internet beef. (He didn’t start it.) On a lighter note, we've also got a GoldLink remix and new music from Fatz Da Big Fella, Jay IDK, and Dunson. 
There were post-holiday fireworks within the Maybach Music Group camp last week as mercurial [...]

Listen: Dunson “4 Leaf Clover”

Maryland rapper Dunson released "4 Leaf Clover" earlier this week, a heartfelt tribute to his older sister disguised as an obvious nod to St. Patrick’s Day. Over simple beatboxing and a sample of Erykah Badu’s "4 Leaf Clover" (itself an interpretation of Atlantic Starr’s "Touch a Four Leaf Clover"), Dunson thanks his sister for being [...]

Listen: Dunson, “Cross Town Lovers”

Maryland financial advisor-turned-rapper Dunson returns with the remix to "Cross Town Lovers," scoring a huge assist from John Legend. If you’re curious about how the rapper landed a feature from the Grammy winner, there’s a story:

DMV Beats: Fat Trel, Early Reed and Friends, Head-Roc, PHZ-Sicks, Dunson, and Lyriciss

Fat Trel
Now that Fat Trel is a major label signee, let the new, flashier music commence. Trel's new track, "She Fell In Love," isn't really about love—it's about lusty times in Florida. There's the girl he bedded in Miami. Then there's the girl he met in Orlando after a show. By song's end, he's remembering [...]

Fat Trel and Uptown X.O.
Fat Trel must be celebrating somewhere. On Wednesday, Rick Ross' Maybach Music Group label announced it had signed Trel to a record deal. The Northeast rapper plans to celebrate this Saturday with a signing and single release party at Stadium Club. And earlier this week, local blogger DDot Omen premiered "Str8 [...]

DMV Beats: Young Moe, Dunson, Xaivia, and Rahiem Supreme

Young Moe
This week, Young Moe finally released a racy visual for "Million Dollar Dreams," the better of two obligatory Fat Trel collaborations on his latest mixtape, Humble Hustle 2. The baby-faced Alexandria emcee takes a bit of a back seat on his own street single, relinquishing both the opening verse and hook duty to Trel. [...]

DMV Beats: Glizzy’s Shyness, Visto’s Issues, and the Return of Kingpen Slim

The View From Glizzy's Block
The Shy in Shy Glizzy stands for Streets Hottest Youngin, but it's been noted that he's soft spoken in person—and there's some definite shyness going on in this interview, done right in the heart of his 37th Street SE neighborhood. His musical persona remains as brash and quasivillainous as ever, though. [...]
