Friday Heat Check: Roddy Ricch, Brockhampton, ericdoa & More


Late At Night by Roddy Ricch

Roddy Ricch is back and is picking up where he left off—collaborating with longtime collaborator DJ Mustard for another smash. The production has a sweet sample with some smooth snaps laying the background for some of Roddy’s catchiest flows. I’m happy to get some new music from these two, and I expect more to come in later 2021.  

Pressure/Bow Wow by Brockhampton ft ssgkobe

Brockhampton just dropped the Roadrunner deluxe album, and we got a few new records. The one that stood out to me was “Pressure/Bow Wow”. The record starts with a hyped-up Merlyn verse over these ominous synth lines; it has high intensity and makes me want to fight somebody. But what really blew me away was the ssgkobe feature on the latter half of the record. This has to be one of my favorite ssg verses of all time; he floats over the instrumental. 

Talk About It by Jungle

I’ve been fascinated by how Jungle brought back this 70s soul and recontextualized it in 2021. “Talk About It” is the newest edition to their catalog and is a groovy record that could be the backdrop for a Super Fly remake. So I suggest you take a listen and broaden your horizons with this track.

Live From The Matrix by Drex Carter ft Redveil, Kkami

Drex Carter has stepped away from Seeyousoon to release a solo single, “Live From The Matrix” featuring Redveil. I always love when I get one-off solo cuts from a collective member because you get to see where their creativity brings them. Drex finds himself in a lofi-hip-hop space with his latest record, and I love it. The use of his laid-back delivery over the smooth production is a match made in heaven. Redveil compliments the record as well and appears in the Cultivision shot music video. 

My Slime by Foushee

Foushee’s debut album is here, and I’m an even bigger fan of her because of the personal songwriting and sonic choices. “My Slime” seems like it will be one of the staple tracks from this project, and I’ve already spun it a handful of times. Her airy vocals emphasize her creative flows; I think this one is going to goooooooo! See for yourself below! 

Fantasize by ericdoa

Hit Hit Hit Hit! If you can’t tell, I think ericdoa a hit record on his hands with “Fantasize”. The hook is fantastic, and the production feels like a record that would captivate a massive audience. The bassline is one of my favorite parts of the record; it’s just so bouncy and giving the song a summery vibe. If you haven’t heard this yet, check it out below!
