I can't believe there are 13 of these now!
What few seem to notice is that the same movement is happening with R&B. There are tons of amazing singers and songwriters that are participating in the progressive evolution of this genre that seems to be expanding just as quickly as rap. I'd like to consider the standouts in R&B our "Leaders of the New School," although many who are just starting to gain major attention have been around in the industry for quite some time.
Check out a Gangstas Use Emoticons Radio, Vol. 13, a showcase of these R&B Leaders of the New School, which includes music from Miguel, Jhené Aiko, Teedra Moses, Frank Ocean, BJ The Chicago Kid, The Weeknd, and more!

The official, REAL DEAL stage name is............ DJ Hourglass!
(If you wanna know why, ask somebody)
I've been doing tribute editions for the past 2 weeks and it's time to get back to that new s**t! This mix is probably the most well rounded--ranging from mainstream to underground, club bangers to love songs. Volume 6 features new music from artists including the Billboard toppers of The Throne, Big K.R.I.T., Meek Mill, and Wale.
Also in the mix are two rappers from the 2 cities nearest to my heart--Charlotte and St. Louis. QC representer C-Weav is the founder of record label So Key Entertainment whose mixtape Mixed Feelings is a must download. Bryant Stewart, the hardest working rapper in St. Louis, just released "I Made This Last Week," a project which he made...in one week. Doesn't sound like it.
Listen to DJ Hourglass's GUE Radio, Vol. 6 below!

Man, does North Carolina have talent. I don't think my state gets its due, but trust, we've got some problems down here.
Tyler Woods is an incredibly gifted R&B singer signed to 9th Wonder's Jamla Records. With E. Wood & 9th's help on production, Tyler is allowed to let his soulful voice take over tracks that are both gritty and sensual.
Don't just take my word for it. Watch his video for Lost In Your Love below and download his FreEP, "The Mahogany Experiment" here.
Shouts to In Flex We Trust
