The perfect record for any playlist, Kyle Bent‘s “6 Feet” finds the Randolph native in his bag. Refusing to take a break until he’s six feet unfer, the rapper isn’t for the fake shit and wants you to stay out his way if you’re gonna ruin his work ethic.

Song: ‘Could Be Better’

Project: Veintiséis EP

Boston producer/rapper Wizz Dakota is a staple in the Boston music scene. Though it’s unbelieveable that he isn’t signed to a major label, Dakota is well on his way (I give it another year).

Releasing his Veintiséis EP last month, Wiz Dakota followed up with a new record titled, “Could Be Better.” Thinking about the state of his life, Dakota counts his blessings, but knows deep down that things could be better.

Song: We Ball

I don’t know what it is about Spook Sleeezyyy that keeps me tuned in. Maybe it’s his transperency. From being a father to being home after serving time, Sleeezyyy is always honest about what he’s going through and lays it all out on the track for world to listen. Excited to hear what he’ll deliver on his forthcoming Welcome To My Jungle mixtape.

7. Plad Finesse



Song: ‘Zebra Print’

PLAD Fine$$e has build quite the following in the city of Boston and is only getting started. Don’t let his turn up music fool you. PLAD Fine$$e is a student of the game and is a stickler for quality lyrics despite his high charisma.

In an interview, the Boston native described just how important lyrics are to him.

“Writing is important to me, but I take pride in all aspects of my music. I’d like to learn how to produce music too. I was rapping since I was like 13 but Joey’s 1999 is what made me take rapping seriously. My freshman year. I used to only rap on boom-bap beats because that’s how much he influenced me. Around the time I created “That’s Finesse,” I was trying to find myself and what made my music and my sound unique, so I stopped doing that to start crafting my own shit.”

6. TeaMarrr


Twitter/Instagram: imaliltcup

Project: Thanks for The Chapstick EP

I’m cheating by putting TeaMarrr on the list because her project dropped in 2017, but I discovered her music [despite following her for three months] after she posted a video for her single, ‘The One.’ A breath of fresh air, TearMarr is one of the few woman doing R&B right in the city.

5. Dae Toney

Song: All About My Money

Though much is unknown about this Boston rapper, we know that this rapper is all about her money and nothing else.

4. Bia Javier

Project: RM22 EP.

Bia Javier sings all the things you don’t want to say outloud on her RM22 EP. Serving as a follow up to her 2017 project Circles, the strongstress endures an endless rollercoaster of a dying relationship.

I’m sure you can relate. (Sidebar: She’s like a mix of H.E.R. & Janine & The Mixtape).

Let me unfiltered for one minute, THIS SONG IS MY SHIT. You ever put this record in the aux while driving in the whip? Woooooo bitch. Austin Fair knew what he was doing with this record. This literally needs to be on every playlist. I need to see a visual, see this played on the radio, on BET, everywhere. But on a serious note, Austin Fair is a humbled individual that is Boston’s best kept secret.

HighKey Random‘s records are catchy and make you want to flex. Especially this ‘Stone Cold Stunner’ record. Fitting right in the mainstream era of a catchy hook and creative wordplay, HighKey Random’s music will definitely have you turnt this summer.

We Saw Mariah the Scientist at Big Night Live



Mariah The Scientist

On Tuesday, we attended Mariah the Scientist‘s ‘The Experimental Tour‘ stop at Big Night Live in Boston.

Just a day after it was announced that Young Thug and YSL were named in a 56-count indictment, the Atlanta songstress came out to her Ry Ry World album cut, “Revenge” dawned in a “Free Thugger” shirt. In front of a sold-out crowd, Mariah seemed a little down while performing the record but began warming up to the crowd as time went on. She also waved and interacted with fans numerous times which made the experience a lot more personal and special.

@miixtapechiick #mariahthescientist #mariahthescientistconcert #mariahthescientisttour ♬ Revenge – Mariah the Scientist

Mariah performed a 30-minute set that ended up being extended to 45 once fans looked at her crazy for saying she was almost done. She performed our personal favorites, “Brain,” “R.I.P.” and “Spread Thin,” just to name a few, and also dedicated her record “2 You” to Thugger himself.

We were a little sad to hear she canceled the Meet & Greet as we’ve been fans since the release of her “To Die For” EP, but it was a great concert, nonetheless. She’s improved a lot vocally and has much more of a stage presence this year than at previous shows.

Check out our quick compilation of the concert below and be sure to purchase a ticket to one of her shows if you can!

MiixtapeChiick Presents: Mixtapes of The Decade



mixtapes of the decade

At the beginning of the decade, the release of mixtapes were at an all-time high and we were further introduced (or reintroduced) to artists who now reign as legends: Fabolous (“There Is No Competition 2”), Lil Wayne (“No Ceilings,” “Sorry 4 The Wait”), Nipsey Hussle (“Crenshaw,” “The Marathon,” “Mailbox Money”), Kendrick Lamar (“Overly Dedicated”), Meek Mill (“Dreamchasers”), Jeezy (“Trap or Die 2”) and J.Cole (“Friday Night Lights”), just to name a few. However, as the years went by, the meaning of mixtapes began to change.

After the Atlanta raid and arrest of DJ Drama and Don Cannon in an investigation by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA), the organization responsible for certifications of albums, on allegations of bootlegging records onto mixtapes, these projects slowly began being capitalized off record labels, as artists were no longer rapping on a Hot 100 single, but instead rapping over original beats, as a method of getting out of their label’s contract.

In 2015, Fabolous restored the feeling with his Summetime Shootout mixtape with Tory Lanez to follow after with Chixtape 3. Shifting the culture into a much better place where bars began to matter again, Hot 97’s Funkmaster Flex started a freestyle series, that can be seen exclusively on Youtube, further reminding us that lyrics matter.

Though the lines of what a mixtape is and what an album is have become blurred, we’ll never forget what it used to be.

In partnership with Dinnerland, Boston’s own miixtapechiick asked the opinions of artists, editors and journalists what their favorite mixtape of the decade was and why.

See what they had to say below.
