Hip Hop fans know that the underground is where the magic happens. The greatest music usually comes from the artists most casual fans haven’t quite heard about yet but who are pushing hard to get their message out into the world. Spida Collins is a rapper & artist on the rise who is doing exactly that, and proves his worth with his newest single “Maze”.
Delving into a versatile rhyming style that is authentic and multifaceted, Spida Collins comes out swinging on this track from the second it starts. Carrying the torch with a rhythmically balanced beat with R&B additives and flavorful post production sequences, we get a diligent mix of a laid back feel-good vibe and a straight street banger with a classic Hip-Hop pacing. Spida‘s rhyming techniques are versatile and well polished, he gets his message across clearly and effectively with great vocal projection and clever lyrical punchlines. His content is witty and identifiable but still has the originality to set himself apart from the run-of-the-mill contemporary artist.
Best of all, this track is very relevant. It can take on a life of its own in the indie scene but still has a prominent mainstream sensibility that is both likable and refreshing. It’d be a good fit on an elite station like NYC’s HOT 97 but still has its rightful place as a street banger. This track is definitely in the right direction that Hip Hop should be taking, and for the most part is. But even more refreshing to have artists like Spida Collins help guide the way, and when you take a listen to “Maze”, you’ll see (and hear) exactly why.
“Maze” is currently available on several digital music retailers and streaming platforms. It’s the perfect track to get your first impression of Spida Collins in case you haven’t heard him yet. And if this is your first time hearing him, it certainly won’t be the last. You’ll be glad we recommended him.
