King Los is an artist who has been critically acclaimed for his steady collection of mixtapes he has put out over the years, but the Baltimore rapper has yet to release a cohesive studio album. Known for his exceptional skills as a freestyle emcee, King Los put his talent on display recently on the Sway In The Morning show in the ‘5 Fingers Of Death’, which forces rappers to rhyme over 5 different (and usually out-of-left-field) beats. Not once losing his focus or train of thought, King Los slaughtered the microphone as he provided the listeners with one of the better ‘5 Fingers Of Death’ freestyles we have heard in recent memory. Beyond his hard-hitting and strong lyrical raps, King Los also discussed his relationship with Diddy/Bad Boy Records as well as his latest mixtape Zero Gravity 2. There is no doubt that King Los has what it takes to be a premier artist in hip-hop, and we hope he finds the right situation that will allow him to put together a well-crafted album. (more…)

We have mentioned the resurgence of CyHi The Prynce a lot lately and it seems those who predicted that CyHi was well-positioned to have a standout year were correct. After releasing a couple of mixtapes and being a heavy contributor to Kanye West’s album Yeezus, the G.O.O.D. Music lyricist is primed to start gaining more national exposure in 2014 after the release of his Black Hystori project. CyHi paid a visit to the Sway In The Morning show recently to discuss his album as well as details regarding his work/relationships with Kanye and Jay Z. While the interview was an insightful one, it was the in-studio performances of some of CyHi’s new tracks that caught our attention as well as Sway’s. It may have been easy to label CyHi as undervalued, under-utilized, or undervalued in the past few years since he initially burst onto the scene with G.O.O.D. Music, but it seems like now is the time for CyHi to shine.  (more…)

Pharoahe Monch is known as one of the best technical lyricists in hip-hop history and even 20 years in he is still at the top of his game. Pharoahe began his career in the 1990’s as a member of the legendary group Organized Konfusion and from then he went on to have a successful solo career. His upcoming solo album PTSD (acronym for Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) is set to be released this April and Pharoahe paid a visit to the Sway In The Morning show in promotion of the album. From delving into the details regarding the project to reminiscing on earlier times of his career, Pharoahe made the discussion an interesting one that all fans of his will appreciate. (more…)

Ty Dolla $ign is a singer out of California who has been making a lot of noise  lately. We recently reviewed his Beach House EP (which was released earlier this month)  and although it only has seven songs on it, radio-hits like “Paranoid” will surely give Ty Dolla $ign plenty of momentum as 2014 rolls along. With a long standing working relationship with producer DJ Mustard as well as being welcomed in by Wiz Khalifa and the Taylor Gang family, Ty Dolla $ign is making all the right moves business-wise and his music has been up to par. Ty Dolla $ign made an appearance on the Sway In The Morning show recently to promote the Beach House EP and also discussed his musical past as well as what material we can expect from him in the future.

The LOX are veterans in hip-hop having had great success as a group since 1994. Consisting of East Coast rappers Jadakiss, Styles P, and Sheek Louch, the trio started off on Bad Boy Records in the mid 1990’s and that’s all they needed to catapult their careers. Money, Power & Respect and We Are The Streets were two albums that had a great impact in the late 90’s/early 2000’s and although the group was on a long hiatus since then, they have made their return. Each artist has had a successful solo career outside of The LOX, but fans have been looking for them to reunite and 2014 is the year that wish will come into fruition. The group released a surprise EP titled The Trinity last month as a preview of what is to come. Jadakiss, Styles P, and Sheek Louch all sat down with Sway on Sway In The Morning to talk about their past, present, and future as a group along with other hot topics in hip-hop.  (more…)
