If you’re reading this, you’re only hours away from a three-day vacation weekend. Physically you are at your desk (whether at home or in person) dreaming of a house party, pool party, day party, or whatever it is for you. complete the short work week. Before you decide not to bother, I wanted to recommend three new additions to your Memorial Day reading list.
Who Is He (ChopNotSlop Remix) by Devy Stonez with Chopstar Kimblee
The music video directed by Crate Cody for Who Is He (ChopNotSlop Remix) by Devy Stonez ft. Chopstar DJ Kimblee embodies the hallucinogenic nature of the chopped and screwed remix. Cody’s trippy visuals amplify Stonez’s elongated vocals on DJ Kimblee’s trippy chop series, which adds an elusive Southern Gothic aura to the track. Who Is He is the featured single from the ChopNotSlop Edition by Stoney, his latest EP.
In Vogue by The Outfit, TX
“Squeaks for twelve years, Dude, I have to want it. The first lines of Fashionable reflect the longevity of Outlaw Mel’s presence in the city’s hip-hop community. Mel, the unofficial Dallas hip-hop ambassador, joins forces with Dance Dailey to create a memorial video for the elder statesman to express his feelings about his standing as one of the oldest contemporary acts. The song’s somber tone offers a perspective reminiscent of the city’s past and assesses its value in an ever-changing future.
333 by Zayland
In less than two minutes, Zayland confirms his status as the city’s R&B madman on 333. The latest Single provides the melodic sounds to an unhappy relationship. Zayland’s self-tuned voice highlighted his injury on the remarkable line of the track, “This love is not enough.” Lyrically, the song aligns with the genre’s painful love tradition, but the production hides the desire under the guise of a song that could easily make it to the Billboard Hot 100.
