Sup OTDHipHop fam! As always, thank you to all the artists and supporters that ride with this platform. Please make sure to also follow us on social media! We drop hip hop content ON THE DAILY, hence our name OTDHipHop. This week’s #TrackTuesday segment features New York artist/rapper Northside Swiss and his new song “Luv U, Hate U.”
Check out our official track review below:
This song is a cool lil’ play/remix on Gnash’s “I Hate You, I Love You.” Northside pretty much spills his heart on the track, sharing intimate and introspective stories about his mother, relationships, and kids. I’ve always been a fan of Northside’s raw honesty on the track. I think the audio and video could be made to “industry quality” but the artist’s truth and emotion trump the sound. I like how the video showed real photos from his life and kept a very original and genuine touch on the project. Overall I dig the song and I’m a fan of Northside’s lyricism and storytelling. Also, I liked the singing on this song and if it was mixed and recorded more professionally it would make an even more DOPE track.

In the past few years that I’ve been following Gio, this dude has always had bars and swagger. His latest single and visual “Because” showcases just that. This is definitely a banger, and something I’d be excited to see live. Gio is also spotted wearing BVGGIO, an up and coming culturally inspired fashion brand. Overall, I dig the track and visual; I never expect anything less than DOPE from Gio Martin. Shouts out Kim Cas on the visuals and Ty Jamz on production!
Aloha OTDHipHop!! Much love to all the featured artists and fans, y'all keeping this platform going!
With that said, this week’s #TrackTuesday is “No V-Day” by Philly-based artist RAMADXN.
Check out our song review below:
“No V-Day” is one of RAMADXN’s latest drops. First off, I dig the the beat itself has a slower trap pace with a boosted base. Shouts out Canis Major on production! As far as lyrical content, I dig RAMADXN’s style. Essentially, “No V-Day” is a love song. I pictured it as a page out of the artist’s diary or journal, basically he’s venting his frustrations about a girl. He also has a nonchalant attitude in his voice that makes his story easy and fun to listen to even though the tone is a little dark.
