Anyone who knows anything about Drevo Coolidge or has followed since his illustrious independent music career really took off knows to expect the unexpected at any given moment in time. Even if you've followed since his earlier days as an artist you'll probably still be having a hard time getting used to how unpredictable he is musically as well as in almost every other way possible. He could announce a new release the day before it drops or a show the day before he arrives in your town. Whether it's strategic or not is unknown but what is for sure it that it does well to cause pandemonium and get fans raving wildly every single time. On the 9th of September he released his latest record, "Keep Safe", and amidst talk about an upcoming promo tour which is still yet to be confirmed he has already announced that his next single is complete and has been scheduled for release. The Jackson, Mississippi underground hip hop star's first full length album "Drevo", which was released just before summer and which featured some of his biggest hits as well as several new records that went on to become summer hits is still only available to stream in part on YouTube but is still ranking among the top underground hip hop releases from the south so far this year. The title of the new track is yet to be confirmed but it is expected on a selected list of also yet to be confirmed mixtape distribution and promotion platforms on the 1st of November.

With so much going on in hip hop, and the music industry as a whole today, it's so easy to forget where it all began and what the genre and music in general is all about. Luckily with dedicated and prolific independent artists like Tamara Bubble, New York's die-hard hip hop fans needn't worry about having that problem again. She has taken Brooklyn by storm and made it clear that 2019 is her year with back-to-back hit after hit after hit and it doesn't look or sound like she's stopping anytime soon - in fact, she claims she's just beginning.

During the summer, she released some of her most successful records to date and had more licensed music placements on popular television and film networks like HBO, BET, Hulu, World Surf League and Entertainment Tonight, where she seems to have gained the favor of music supervisors since back in December 2018 when her song, "Buddy" premiered on BET's new program, "Hustle In Brooklyn". But just because summer is over doesn't mean the heat is gone. She returned with a new single, "Forgot Your Name" on the 3rd of September and then just over 2 weeks later she released "Boss", another single that is following suit with everything she has done this year and keeping fans not just raving but also holding on tight to their seats as she careers through the world of hip hop leaving no metaphor unrhymed and every wack competitor on their back. Both records are available to stream and download on Soundcloud and popular free music promotion platforms, as well as Spotify, Apple Music, Tidal, Amazon and all popular digital music services where you can also find the rest of her extensive repertoire right from her early days as an R&B singer.
