ROEDEL - 247
Antwerp based hip-hop collective Roedel has been on our radar since their first song in 2018. The 7 guys, including Luie Louis and tusais, released a new music video this Wednesday. The outfits, scratching and black and white music video by Yaqine Hamzaoui take us back to the eighties and nineties in hip-hop. Check out their live performance of the track on our Bruzz x Chase Livestream!
UNIS - MIND
Ghentian singer Unis is all about female empowerment in her first song. She's not just singing about her fellow female millennials, she chose to work with a female-only team for the music video. "I explicitly wanted to work with women as my producers, stylists, and directors because it's still very rare these days to choose women over men," she explains. Female empowerment at its finest!
LE 77 - CERBER
Who doesn't know Le 77 these days? The energetic Brussels hip-hop trio presented their latest album 'ULTIM' at Ancienne Belgique this Tuesday. The fifth track of this album now also has a music video that creates a whole new universe and makes you question everything. The video completely sets the mood for the song, with a title referring to the three-headed dog in Greek mythology.
BRIHANG - CASCO
Brihang is back. After dropping 'Oelala' last month, he now released his new studio album called 'Casco'. The rapper from West-Flanders has always been a magician with words and never disappoints. The title song of the album is a nice combination between poetry and rap, on a very slow and chill beat.
EMI ICE 6K - TOXIC SLUT FREESTYLE
Who would have thought a Belgian rapper would make a Spanish trap song which is very accessible, even when you don't understand the lyrics? Emi Ice 6K, also known as Emilian Wonk in the riddim scene, is an Argentinian rapper who moved to Belgium. He now made his first-ever trap song, together with producer Treetime, in his native language.
