Hot Singles In Your Area (Nov 2017- Week 1)

The woman who brings you the hottest singles in your area, but don’t call me Tinder.

Bloomington and Naptown artists with beats heavier than a block of cinder.


Okay so as you can see there’s a reason why I write about hip hop and don’t actually make it alone. However, I’m bringing to you my newest feature “Hot Singles In Your Area”. This will be my definitive weekly roundup of the best tracks in hip hop and R&B dropped from Bloomington to Indy to The Region. If you ever have any suggestions, hit me on twitter (@_imnocaptain), but if not… Treat yo’ ears.

I don’t want to do anything for the next six days but drive to kickbacks and listen to this. The production is incredible. The vocals are incredible. I can’t wait for a visual, there better be one. I am certifiably obsessed with this track from the Fort Wayne Native rn.

You’ve seen him before, and here he is again. Indianapolis based soul/r&b artist and resident fuckboy Eddy Blake is back with the re-release of what was formerly titled “Real Friends”. It’s clearly a rip of Kanye’s “Real Friends” track, but this time Eddy Blake has shortened it and the production quality seems a little higher. It’s a fire track… I’m still missing that elongated outro though… I cannot lie.

YEAH OK. THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT WE’RE GOING TO DO. “Mic Homicide” is not at all an exaggeration. It’s clear that these are some the strongest MCs that Nap has to offer right now.

I’m an absolute sucker for any songs that have that deep voice that reminds me of 2013 A$AP Rocky as well as any songs that talk about eating pasta (because if you know me you know that my tagline is “all I do is listen to trap beats”). The fact that this very fun song is from Nap is just the icing on the cake. Cain Wallace is definitely one I’ll have to keep my eye on.
