In the beginning of the Summer Gary Soulz released "Figure This Out,” which involved a nostalgic story of old friends parting ways and into different directions over time.
Gary took a small hiatus, but with summer nearing an end he's back with a new release entitled "Vibe”; which stays in line with his narrative approach, only this time focused on a new attraction between him and a lover he's encountered.
Flexxington Don’s melodic production helps create the “vibe” and the elements that made the overall idea come into fruition along with vocalist Ashante Nicole who compliments the song throughout with the chorus.

Rap artist once known as JXL, has evolved to Sex the Rapper and released a dope new video for the single “Time Is Money” ft. Dhan Dee. The story follows Sex The Rapper & Dhan Dee throughout the day, starting from just kicking it on the porch, infusing insane visual effects, giving you personal perspective around the notion that time is valuable. Sex The Rapper points out that time is often taken advantage of, just like money, people and relationships. Accompanied by Dhan Dee, the video creates a back and forth rattle of the duo in a crazed turnt up cypher making Milwaukee's famed Summerfest Festival their backdrop. Sex The Rapper finishes the video strong and circles back to where they started, on the front porch, after bringing the crowd into the scene. "Time is Money" reflects Sex The Rapper's sentiments to his career as an emcee; he's too valuable to be “slept on” when it comes to his creative genius. Nothing will halt Sex the Rapper from going beyond the illusions of time and money being obstacles on his journey toward success and better days.
