Self – SAIN

Sain, aka Fouch, aka Chris Fouchet, is for sure my most mysterious personal friend. Also from Long Island, Sain has a super unique sound, something I try and strive for. For Sain, it comes naturally though. With a solid arsenal on SoundCloud, Self is Sain’s third project, the first two being Fouche and the second being Break (Fouche is available on YouTube, and hopefully soon on Spotify and Apple … Continue reading Self – SAIN

Sit Down Series: SGULL

Greg Sullivan, or SGULL, is beginning to make a name for himself in the music industry. No, he isn’t rapping or singing, but instead, creating beats. This past month, he placed a beat on NLE Choppa’s single “Birdboy” that has nearly 7 million views on YouTube. This isn’t a one-off thing, as SGULL has grinded to get to this point and continues to build a … Continue reading Sit Down Series: SGULL

Fades World – Young Fades

Young Fades makes any marketer happy. He is extremely active on his socials and clearly has seen success from some Twitter campaigns, one post having nearly 4.4 million views. This is how Young Fades came onto my radar. Honestly, a white dude out of Oklahoma rapping in camo shirts is not usually my go-to listening but Fades seems to be developing his own brand. It’s … Continue reading Fades World – Young Fades

Charlie Eastern – Jalen Santoy

If you’ve never heard of Jalen Santoy before, don’t worry…most people haven’t. The young, LA-based rapper provides listeners with smooth flows, thoughtful lyrics, and hard-hitting beats. While remaining fairly quiet over the past few years, Santoy released Charlie Santoy in 2016 and has left us with a beautifully done album. Colossus isn’t always about covering what’s new and popular, sometimes we just have to write a … Continue reading Charlie Eastern – Jalen Santoy

Death Race for Love – Juice WRLD

I am still not 100% sure where this strange craze of emo rap came from. Juice WRLD first came on my radar, as well as many of hip-hop listeners’, over the past summer with his debut album Goodbyes & Good Riddance. Obviously, there are the sure signs like XXXTentacion and Lil Peep who seem to be the forefront of this “sad boy” sound in hip-hop … Continue reading Death Race for Love – Juice WRLD

STN MTN/Kauai – Childish Gambino

Today we’re gonna go back to 2014 when Childish dropped two EP’s, one titled STN MTN exclusively on Datpiff and the other as Kauai on all major streaming platforms. Two completely different EP’s dropped within minutes of each other that when put together make Childish’s STN MTN/Kauai masterpiece. The names of the EP’s have a lot to do with the sounds that follow. Childish was born in … Continue reading STN MTN/Kauai – Childish Gambino

Future Hndrxx Presents: The WIZRD – Future

To be honest, part of the reason the content cycle at Colossus has been slow for #NewMusicMondays is that there hasn’t been an overwhelming amount of music dropped in the first two months of this year. Later this week I will be covering another new album as a gift to you loyal readers but for now, let’s take a look at what Fire Marshall Future … Continue reading Future Hndrxx Presents: The WIZRD – Future

B.A.D is a young up-and-coming rapper out of Boston’s growing hip-hop scene. By formulating his own sound, he has created some solid mixtapes that have generated more and more exposure. It won’t be long before he finally breaks through, especially with the team in Boston he has surrounded himself with. Last week, he found time between the studio and getting his new single “Come Thru” … Continue reading Sit Down Series: B.A.D

Beat Tape 2 – Tom Misch

Beat Tape 2 is Toms third project after his recording debut in 2014. I say recording debut because although he’s been making music all of his life, and releasing instrumentals on Soundcloud since 2012. I chose Beat Tape 2 because of a personal connection I have with this EP. As we know from my review of Geography, I’m a major Misch fan, really can’t get enough … Continue reading Beat Tape 2 – Tom Misch
