Valee - Awesome ft. Matt Ox

Valee's new song "Awesome" is just that. The track, which features a guest appearance from the young Matt Ox, who we can't get enough of. Valee first caught our attention with his single "Womp Womp ft. Jeremih". The Chicago rapper's fresh style of rapping cannot be taken for granted. He has set a unique trend and has been imitated by many other rappers in the industry. His approach is fresh and we can't wait to hear what he drops next. Although the "Awesome" video does not feature Valee himself, it is still artistically inventive and is emphasizing his lyrics.

Born Valee Taylor in the Robert Taylor Homes, a high-rise housing project in Chicago’s Bronzeville neighborhood, he grew up all over the city’s South Side. As a kid, he was fascinated by taking stuff apart and learning how to put it back together; today, his approach to music seems to follow a similar ethos—an obsession with the mechanics of rap, and with figuring out new solutions to old problems. “If a lot of people say things one way, I gotta take it, twist it, mend it, and bend it in a way that feels fresh,” he says.

  • SHY & D.R.S feat. JOSH SETTERFIELD - "FLEX"
    SHY & D.R.S feat. JOSH SETTERFIELD - "FLEX" Country has long been a polarizing, impenetrable genre subjugated to the “but..” of the sentence, “I listen to everything,”. In a time where cross-pollination is the only way to stay current, it's also a genre that has maintained its air of sovereignty, managing to slyly subvert the popsphere by pivoting… Read more
