East Coast Rap Girls Raise The Bar, Remixing The Hottest Tracks of Summer '23 // Who's The Freestyle Queen? // Shenseea Teams Up With Vita Coco & Captain Morgan For A Tropical Performance In Jamaica, Queens On June 28th [RSVP Inside] // Jarritos Drops Dunks and Artist Grant Contest

The Rap Girlies are keeping their feet on our necks for 2023.  Just when we thought the original was gold, they got us lit wit' a Remix!

We gonna have these tracks on repeat the whole Summer:

Kali flewed up to ✈ NYC for a 718 Remix to Area Codes ft Kenzo B

Meanwhile, we're still running up Ciara's super dope Da Girls Remix ft. Lola Brooke and Lady London; despite what the haters say! πŸ”₯

Sonically, Ice Spice and Nicki Minaj's chemistry on Princess Diana is insane!  

Must be a New York thing! 😜

Lola Brooke went BK bully on Don't Play With It Remix ft. Latto and Yung Miami.  

#NYApproved  Big Latto tapped into her inner BX swag and crushed her custom Avirex fit, with matching Timberlands!  Kind of reminiscent to Glorilla rocking Carhartt in the video for Tomorrow 2 ft. Cardi B.

Speaking of Cardi, Latto wasted no time adding her as a feature to this Summer's anthem; Put It On The Floor Again.  

The video included a cameo appearance by LSU Women's Basketball Star Angel Reese, which added a nice touch of female unity.  

Now let's get into Freestyles and who should be crowned the Freestyle Queen....

The multitalented Flau'jae Johnson, another LSU Women's Basketball Star, who doubles as an upcoming Rapper, gets an honorable mention.

Flau'jae ripped the mic for #RedBull60Seconds Challenge .... 

I love everything about this, including the New Orleans French Quarter background!

Connie Diamond is a quintessential Uptown chick, spittin' fire on DJ Cosmic Kev's show - in a smooth Vanson.

Who else wants to see a Raptress from B'more win?  Looks like BaltimoreBella may be up next!

Dess Dior's killing the Fashion and Hip Hop scene!  She claimed her title in the It Bitch Freestyle, and paid homage to Trina, in her rendition of Nann Hoe

Ms. Atlanta, Omeretta The Great, got busy on the courts, while keepin' it cute on the Slidin' Freestyle. 

Much respect to the ladies putting on for their cities, but let's throw some spice in di mix....

Earlier this year, Vita Coco and Captain Morgan Rum partnered to create three popular cocktails; Pina Colada, Lime Mojito, and Strawberry Daquiri.

The drinks received such an overwhelming response of refreshing delight, that the two brands, sponsored by Diageo; plan to host a Tropical Takeover Tour - headlined by three Caribbean Superstars, and... you're invited!
