Slihmm – Ruins

Houston MC, Slihmm, is back with yet another free verse. Known for his lyrical prowess, the young artist releases his music in minute long pieces rather than full records. Slihmm and Chance Schreiber are building some nice chemistry together, the sampled production allows for Slihmm to show off a variety of flows throughout the verse. This is a solid track from Slihmm, however, we can’t help but want more from the kid. Hopefully there’s a full length project in the future, until then we’ll continue to keep an eye on the young MC.

Slihmm – Nightly

Outside of Travi$ Scott, the city of Houston has been pretty quiet as of late. One artist who is trying to change that is Slihmm, a young MC with a versatile bag of flows and a deep penchant for lyricism. Unlike the swangin, screwed up records from a decade ago, Slihmm attacks instrumentals using his pen as a sword. “Nightly’s” laid back piano allows for him to show off his rhymes, but one can’t help feeling like the record ends before it is able to blossom. A solid effort, we’d like to see a few fully crafted records from the kid, check out “Nightly” above.

Slihmm – Scared

The kid Slihmm recently sent over a new track titled “Scared.” The Houston MC has been releasing a steady trickle of snippets over the last year, each one providing a step forward from the last. Produced by Electic Cher, the somber production fits Slihmm’s style like a glove, his introspective rhymes are enhanced by the instrumentals eeriness. These short tracks are really dope, but we’re hoping to hear a little more from Slihmm in the near future. Check out “Scared above and make sure to stay tuned for more from the Houston artist.

Slihmm – Grace

Houston MC Slihmm sent us his latest track a little over a week ago and it’s pretty dope. Produced by Liverpool’s own Brother Moon, the record flies by at just over a minutes length. Slihmm wastes little time attacking the instrumental with complex flows from the start. “Grace” is yet another taste of what the young artist can do, hardly a full song, but an exercise in pure lyricism. Dark and gritty, Slihmm continues to carve his own sound into Houston’s increasingly diverse musical landscape. Check out “Grace” above and be on the look out for more from Slihmm.

Peep the remix below and make sure check out Father next weekend.

New Release Schedule For ‘Escobar: Paradise Lost’ This Summer


We’ve been keeping an eye on this project for what seems like years now (which isn’t far from reality considering it has taken more than a decade to get a Pablo Escobar biopic on the big screen), but now we finally have some more news as to a nationwide release. Escobar: Paradise Lost, which is directed by Italian actor Andrea Di Stefano (Nine, Life of Pi), was originally given a limited release back in January of this year, but now the film will see another release in theaters this June 26th in New York, LA, Atlanta, Dallas, Houston, El Paso, Memphis, Tulsa, Phoenix and Washington DC. Leading the cast in the role of Escobar is Oscar-winner Benicio Del Toro (The Usual Suspects, Fear and Loathing In Las Vegas), Josh Hutcherson (The Hunger Games, Red Dawn), and Claudia Traisac (The 7th Day, Apaches). The international trailer is available here on MADE. Be sure to check your local listings if you live in any of these areas!

Slihmm – Basement

Houston MC, Slihmm, recently dropped a new track titled “Basement” for all of our listening pleasure. The young spitter clearly has a knack for complex rhyme schemes accentuating his bars with a cool delivery. Produced by Brothermoon, the laid back track breezes by at a length under 1 minute. Check out Slihmm’s track “Basement” above and stay tuned for more.

Slihmm – I Can’t Rap About Love Ft. Noosance

A little late with this one, but Houston spitter Slihmm recently sent us a new track titled, “I Can’t Rap About Love”. Produced by Brotherman, the heavy, boom bap inspired instrumental is reminiscent of those early 90s years on the East Coast. Slihmm’s voice is distinct on the record and his story keeps the listener in tune, Noosance holds his own with a quality verse as well. Short and sweet, I’m definitely interested to hear more from the Houston MC; check out “I Can’t Rap About Love” above.

Tre’ Crowell – SB

Tre

Houston spitter Tre’ Crowell continues his weekly releases with a new track titled “SB”. The heavy horn sample and grooving bass lays the foundation for Tre to do what he does best. Since I’ve started listening to Tre’ Crowell, I’ve always noticed how he sounds beyond his years in regards to his delivery and ability to structure cadences. He also has a knack for picking instrumentals that fit his style perfectly. One month removed from it’s original release date, Road to 13 is scheduled for a January 13th release; check out “SB” below and stay tuned for more from Tre’ Crowell.
