Superman Returnz: Destined 4 Greatness (listen/download)

Milwaukee artist $killz has been doing some major things as of late. He’s stepped up his branding with his new #Syphlyfers hash-tag. He’s also branched into merchandising with his new Sypher Squad t-shirts. And to top it all off, he’s joined forces with Amerikas Addiction and their Do What You Desire movement. All very lucrative ventures. So it was only fitting that his newest video be of a high-caliber. It’s for his collaboration with fellow 414 elite artist Yo Dot, which is titled “In My Prime.” The single appears on his latest mixtape Superman Returnz: Destined 4 Greatness. It was produced by Saul Garza Beatz (Brick Squad Monopoly).

This morning at midnight, Sypher Squad boss Tone Bone aka $killz released the premier video for emerging Milwaukee artist Fava. The selected track Far From Famous contains the usual bravado and bragging about being the ‘king of Milwaukee’ that most young artists preach. The visual structure of the video is black & white with a swinging screen shot and a simple one angle set up. There is an inclusion of an interview with UFC competitor Chico Camus at the beginning and end, to attempt to lend some form of unearned status to this freshman artist. The contrast of color and black & white while quite visually appealing to a small degree, is too big of a distraction when the placement of the sample should have been at one side or the other.

Trap Society (listen/download)

Earlier this year Milwaukee emcees $killz (Sypher Squad) and Big Curse (Nak Musick) teamed up to represent the city in a major way. They created a track called “Solo Dolo” that ended up being featured on the Trap Society mixtape put together by Saul Garza (Brick Squad Monopoly). Which means they got to hold rank along side a lot of Southern heavy hitters like: Gucci Mane, Waka Flocka, Roscoe Dash, etc. That is an impressive accomplishment and not something that everybody in the game can post on their resume. And then to top it off, the record turned out hot. The quiet yet durable bass, played down secondary elements, and raw street vibe culminate in a blazing combination. $killz did his thing on the hook with a composed delivery and stern memorable lyrics. The verses are a hit too. Big Curse takes the lead and $killz settles up the end. Both artists came with personable flows, quick wordplay, and elite rhymes. Overall, this was a very official record. So much so that the duo decided to releases a video for the cut. Check it out below.
