Poised with the ability to entertain listeners with ease, utilizing his wide array of flows and signature charisma, Superior has solidified himself many times over as one of Boston’s finest rising talents. Personally, I first found his music about a year ago in a string of singles on SoundCloud and I’ve been hooked ever since. Today, the Graduation Music frequent flyer is here with a new release titled “Flex Freestyle” produced by Qreamy Beats.
Finding its wings in trunk-rattling kicks and smooth lines, this track perfectly exemplifies Superior’s versatility and straight-forward approach to rap. He’s talking about his real life, and over an ethereal atmosphere of angelic keys and melodies, these accounts and ideas achieve a well-fitting authenticity. Overall, this release will undoubtedly keep the stocks rising for the Boston native and I can’t wait for what he has in store next. Click play on “Flex Freestyle” below to get hip.
And in the wise words of Barack Obama, protect Superior at all costs.

Big Leano is back, and he’s back with a vengeance. Currently touring all around the country and beyond with Cousin Stizz, the Boston representative is here with the follow-up to his highly regarded debut Tales From The Mud. This time around, Leano is blessing the streets with Packula, an 8-track collection of money-minded anthems and unforgiving accounts of the life that he’s lived. One phrase comes to mind when I think of a motto for this project: real life. Just like Stizz, Big Leano prides himself on brutal honesty in his raps and it’s clear that with the pinpoint detail he raps with, the rising artist is about the life he tells listeners of.
An equal amount of street wisdom and vivid storytelling make this one an automatic must-listen for me, and I find myself especially entertained when hearing the never-ending humor of Leano in his self-comparisons and descriptions. Marry these aspects to a production clinic from Qreamy Beats, LoLoTheGod, Twayne The Kidd, Tee-WaTT, and LDG Beats and you have something special.
I began my first listen of Packula at 6:30 this morning during my drive to school, and with booming production to complement aggressive verses/hooks, it definitely set the tone for the day well. I’m ready to keep this one on repeat for quite some time, and you should be, too. Give Packula a listen below.
