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!

Alright enough with that, this week’s #TrackTuesday features
“A Complex Beginning,” by KTC (King Tha Caper). Check out my review below:
“A Complex Beginning” is the newest song/music video by KTC, off his Complexity album.
The visuals are pretty dope on this project. Props to Corey Huber Media! I like the concept of using smoke/fog to illustrate the struggle to “make it.” It looked like it was cold outside! Lol.
Overall, I dig the storytelling KTC does on this track. In my opinion, I hear this song more like a poem out of his book of rhymes, explaining his frustration to be successful but overall focused on working hard to achieve his goals. There really isn’t any hook but more so a poetic theme of his complex mind, and is used in the track and album title. I also dig the cadenced-type beat; it reminded me of Eminem’s “Beautiful.”
Shouts out Nookie on production!
