That NJ Ish: Kenif Muse – My $ide / Ya Tu Sabe


In celebration of his birthday, South Jersey singer/song-writer/producer Kenif Muse releases a raw, yet catchy new single, titled “My $ide.” Mercilessly addressing the fakes, Kenif croons: “There’s a thin line between all the love and the hate/ Energy the same.”

With dark production from Kil Confirmed, “My $ide” is slated to appear on Kenif‘s forthcoming project. This record serves as a follow up to Kenif‘s previous Infamous Rell-produced “Ya Tu Sabe” single (also below) as well as the various credit he received on Mir Fontane‘s Who’s Watching The Kids? project.

Enjoy “My $ide” below, and stay tuned for more releases from Kenif Muse to close out the Summer.

2016 has been a breakout year for Camden, NJ rapper Mir Fontane. Gaining buzz over the past several months through his regional hit “Wanni Wag,” and collaborations with Jersey heavy-hitters: Tsu Surf, OVO Sound‘s Mike Zombie, and G.O.O.D Music‘s Charlie Heat, Mir Fontane is positioning himself to be an east-coast household name sooner than later.

Fontane recently visited Sway In The Morning to discuss the origins of his stage name, growing up in Camden, NJ, the #BlackLivesMatter movement and of course, spit some flames for the Friday Fire Cypher over some Mike Zombie production.

(Video) The Best 4 Minutes Of Your Life: Lil Yachty Interviews Himself

Lil Yachty

Lil Yachty recently sat down with Mass Appeal for their ‘Time Alone‘ segment, where an artist interviews themselves, and it’s the greatest thing I’ve seen all year.

18-year-old Yachty is one of the more popular new artists that have popped up in the last year or so, and is likely going to land a spot on XXL‘s annual Freshmen issue next month. His mix of rapping and singing on whimsical beats (typically made by his go-to producer, Burberry Perry) has me hooked, mostly because the content is so ridiculous that it’s hilariously entertaining. For example, Yachty remixed the theme song to Mr. Rogers’ Neighborhood earlier this month and had Kylie Jenner join him, and you can check that out here.

This 4-minute Mass Appeal clip is equally as hilariously entertaining as his music, and it will be worth every second. You’re welcome.
