If you’re not the LEAST bit curious as to what is going on in the great state of Virginia, musically.. well then, my friend, I’d have to go out on a limb and say you are doing some serious snoozing.
At this point, with fresh new talents like D.R.A.M., Masego, & Treez Lowkey literally kicking down barriers and elevating previous sounds with a little VA flavor, there is no denying the native lands when it comes to sonic appeals. Virginia has ALWAYS been seen as a demographic that produces GOATS and outlandish culture, and this notion stretches back to the early 90’s during the Missy “Misdemeanor” Elliott/ Timbaland golden era. Now, with that legacy and many others set in stone, it’s time for the new school age of musicians to continue building on that foundation.
There are a namely amount of artists who are up next, as it seems from the way the area is responding. iLPackMobb, undoubtedly to be mentioned when speaking on who is who. The mobb makes up a slew of different creatives: artists, producers, cinematographers, designers, and even podcast hosts. Many of the artists have released new bodies of work within the last 12 months, and others are prepping their upcoming projects to be delivered soon. To bring in the month of May with a more versatile and unexpected sound from the “underdog” (as he feels with his breakout), OnGo Dunman is the latest member to present his debut album, “PLAYBOY“.
