Aloha and welcome back OTDHipHop fam! We have been very busy going through content from our Davao City, Philippines tour, back in February. Make sure to check out our spotlight interviews from tour, on our Youtube channel and/or Facebook. We also promote artists heavily on our Instagram and Twitter pages.
With that said, we are back with our Track Tuesday segment - song reviews submitted by independent artists from around the world. This week we had the pleasure of reconnecting with female hip hop artist, X-Plycit. We’ve featured her on OTDHipHop a few times before, and she is back with another single...and an album on the way. She has a bunch of shows and festivals booked for the rest of Summer and Fall, and is currently working on her newest album. Today we reviewed X-Plycit’s new track “Outro,” from her upcoming album Content.
First off, I dig the production and engineering on “Outro.” Shouts out to Harbour Drive Studios! The beat has a military cadence tempo, and is on point to X-Plycit’s aggressive, bar-for-bar style. It’s only one verse, and quite short; but X-Plycit delivers with her own unique tone and energy. She takes jabs at “bubble gum rappers” and goes in on any one who doubts her. I’m excited to hear what the rest of Content sounds like. X-Plycit’s new album is scheduled to release later this summer, and she is also working on a collaboration EP with another female Toronto-based artist.

Good morning OTDHipHop fam!
We got another installment of our #TrackTuesday segment. Today we’re reviewing a new song called “Feelin Myself,” by Bay Area-based female rapper Turfergirl aka TG9 Milli.
“Feelin Myself” is the first single to be released off of TG9 Milli’s upcoming EP, A Dose of Me. The whole project was produced, written, & performed by the artist herself. As far as production, “Feelin Myself” definitely has that classic hyphy Bay Area sound. TG9’s attitude and flow is confident and filled with heavy barz. I also like how the beat switches up time to time throughout the track. My main critique is that I think her vocals could’ve been changed up a bit more throughout the track; the hook is catchy and easy to recite but it can get difficult to hear again and again. Her voice seems to be naturally more high-pitched kind of like how Too Short sounds on a track; personally I think she would sound cooler in a more, calm, chill tone with the same heavy hitting barz. However, the overall vibe is that cocky Bay Area finesse and I dig that. I’m excited to check out TG9 Milli’s new EP when it drops! Make sure to stay tuned for her upcoming Instagram livestream interview!
Yo! Welcome back to another brand new week on OTDHipHop.
Shouts out to all of our artists and supporters. Please remember to follow us on ALL of our social media handles. This week’s #TrackTuesday features “California (Prod. Ian Hanks)” by Ca$anovaOnTheMic, a female artist from Guam.
Check out our song review below:
“California” is definitely a quality track. Personally, I’m not always a big fan of the pulsing techno sound but I dig the EDM vibe of the track. Props to Ian Hanks on production! The guitar intro is really dope. What I like best is Ca$anova’s diversity as an artist; although she sings for most of “California,” she showcases her own flavor as an emcee on the rap verse. Overall, the vocals are smooth and easy to listen to. In my opinion, “California” gives me a Justin-Bieber’s-Beauty-and-a-Beat and Katy-Perry’s-California Girls vibes but with a rap twist. I’ve been following Ca$anova for a few years now and it’s great to hear her sound develop.
