Crazy rhymes, crazy beats and crazy hooks make an album infectious. Dyme Def is indeed contagious and they’re bringing their poison to your from Seattle, Washington. Yes a hip hop group from Seattle, you read correctly. This Trio of Emcees has excellent delivery, style and some incredible producers. You want something hot to blast this is it.

Our Favorite Track
I Ain’t No (they’re transitions smoother than an NFL QB to a tailback)

Room For Improvement
Nada, well done.

Coming from the west coast, Cali to be exact, we bump Krysto here at HotIndieMusic.com. This young man is bringing it and he is bringing it hard!!! If you don’t like west coast sound, rest assure you will after you listen to Krypto. He’s got a rich voice, masterful rhymes and some great beats. We love the sound quality and final mix on this album. Well done Krypto.

Our Favorite Track
To The Moon

Room For Improvement
Nada for Krypto, but some for his producers. We were not feeling a few of the beats, but we still liked Krypto’s flow on all of them.

This young man has something real to say. If words cannot express then let Nate Krooks do it for you. Lyrically he is a genius, this may be the Asian version of Eminem. He has a super smooth voice for an Emcee. We just love his sound, energy, annunciation and we’re feeling the beats on his tracks. Kudos to his producer.

Our Favorite Track
Still True

Room For Improvement
Needs to work on creating catchier hooks. Thesis should be in the hook.

Ridikule’s name is fitting, he’s gonna tell you what it is and what it’s not. He’ll make you fall in love with the west coast and make you want to take a trip to Cali. He gets to the point and the heart of the matter with choice words and beats. That being said let’s get to our point, Ridikule is hot, check out his album.

Our Favorite Track
Rock Bottom

Room For Improvement
We love his sound, just not feeling some of the beats.

#5 Pick HotIndieMusic.com Hip Hop/Rap

We love these beats and we love Danny’s voice!! Danny has an amazing presence in his music and the production is top notch. His songs are catchy and you will catch yourself singing them in a matter of seconds. Caution the lyrics are explicit.

Our Favorite Track
Oh No

Room For Improvement
We’d like to see Danny go deeper with his lyrics and talk about things other than sex, smoking and drinking. Get political.

Noyeek has a unique voice, we’re assuming that’s where the nick name Grizzly Bear comes from. His voice is warm and inviting and the Grizzly Bear has great lyrical content, energy as well as delivery. Look forward to hearing more of his work. With, that we crown him our #2 Pick Hip Hop here at HotIndieMusic.com

Our Favorite Track
Breath of Fresh Air

Room For Improvement
A couple of the beats were hard to get into, but that is a matter of artistic opinion. We’d also like a couple more catchy hooks.

(we reviewed her latest album Pulau)

#7 Pick HotIndieMusic.com Hip Hop/Rap

Pulau contains some tracks from the previous album. You can definitely hear her growth. Masia has a unique style and delivery. She almost makes it sounds like an open mic spoken word performance at times.

Our Favorite Tracks
Calm B4 The Norm feat. Sabotawj
New Love

Room For Improvement
She needs to be a little more aggresive. Our biggest beef is with the audio engineer, turn her vocals up or turn the music down.

#8 Pick HotIndieMusic.com Hip Hop

This kid has got something and it is very original. Well not exactly, he may have adopted the concept from Lauryn Hill. He raps and sings and he’s got some pretty catchy songs. His sound is unusual and it’s not for everybody, but we like it.

Our Favorite Track
Need That

Room For Improvement
When he raps his voice is a little high pitched. Also, where can people buy your album bro?
