Greenville, NC’s burgeoning hip hop artist Trevie Jones has been at it for a few years now but has really kicked it into high gear as of late. From performing all over NC and the surrounding states to dropping off his latest project “High, I’m Trevie Jones” it’s been quite a year. One of the standout tracks from the project “In The Sky” is a party banger with a unique flow, catchy hook, and an eerie auto-tuned ride out to complete the morning after/hungover vibes.

Jay IDK Freestyles On Sway In The Morning

September 29, 2015

By Kaitlin

Following the debut of his Jacob LaGuardia co-directed SubTrap short film “The Seller & The User”, which currently has over 100K+ views, DMV native Jay IDK keeps the ball rolling by liberating a brand new Josh (of Phantogram) produced freestyle compliments of Sway In The Morning’s Friday Fire Cypher.

Jay IDK unloads a full clip on the live show in front of Power 106 DJ Big Boy & Sway himself. Safe to say he’s left a lasting impression and made the shoes of the next cypher participant pretty hard to fill.

Watch below as Big Boy, Heather B and the rest of the Sway In The Morning crew vibe out to the uncensored bars from the HXLY TRiBE frontman. Also, if you want to learn more about the rising emcee head over to XXL and check out his recent “The Break” interview!

By Kaitlin

Super Nike Nando teams with fellow DMV native Havana Seoul and producer Terio for a dreamy smokers tune entitled “Tumblr Heaux”. SNN has been in the studio pretty heavy preparing new music for fans as well as getting ready for his A3C Festival performance on Friday, October 9th at Apache Cafe (3pm-7pm). Both MCs are fairly underrated when it comes to DMV artists to watch, but it’s clear they plan to change that sooner than later. They definitely go in on this new offering, as Havana spits “N***** I looked up to, this year I’m finna lap,” in her verse.

Sit back, and enjoy some dope vibes from Super Nike Nando and Havana Seoul.
