“Yellow is the new black, and I’m Mr. Kaputo.” One of the first things that stood out to me about Aminé‘s “Blinds” was his Orange Is The Black reference, but there are a lot of things to appreciate on this summery new groove. The West Coast up and comer and 2017 XXL Freshman is gearing . . .
Portland-based up and comer Aminé continues his impressive run with a romantically inclined new song called “Heebiejeebies,” featuring Kehlani.

“Missy like my auntie. Dreads like a palm tree.

It’s been a minute since we’ve gotten new content from Ace Cosgrove, but the Maryland artist has been hard at work behind the scenes. “Nada” is the first single off his next project.

“America wanna act all happy and holy, but deep down inside they like Brad and Jolie.” Aminé‘s “Caroline” was definitely the soundtrack of my summer.

Still hot after the summer success of “Caroline,” Portland rapper Aminé hit us with another upbeat single called “Baba.” Aminé’s songs can be a bit of an acquired taste.
