Conscious spitter NEAK, drops his brand new visual for track, ‘What Would 2Pac Say’. The emotionally-charged video highlights the possible thoughts of 2Pac of the world nearly 25 years after his passing. The visual imagery takes us on a ride through our current world and questions, “What really has changed?” It would be interesting to have this question answered from one of the greatest artists of all time; Tupac Shakur…
‘What Would 2Pac Say’ is taken from Neak’s latest album, ‘INNENSTADT’. Check out the official video for the single, directed and edited by APJFilms.
Newly-signed Capitol Records hip hop/RnB artist 3BREEZY shares the video for ‘Message To Her.” The record, self-released by 3Breezy last November, already has 2,817,445 views, and overall in his short career 3Breezy has amassed nearly 25 million streams in the U.S. alone.
On ‘Message to Her,’ Breezy tells the story of a woman who’s been neglected by her lover. Alternating between the woman’s perspective and his own, Breezy offers words of encouragement that are as tender as his vocals. Inspired by a direct message he received from a fan who wanted him to sing a story she couldn’t tell on her own, the song is both a literal embodiment of his mission to provide musical therapy for fans across the globe. The comments most shared from listeners are how the felt every word and that the song hits hard, As Breezy prepares his new project, Catch a Breeze, he’s just at the beginning of exploring this sensitive side of himself more fully.
3Breezy has only been making music for around a year, but already has a growing legion of fans ensnared by his crooning, hazy confessionals, and uplifting aphorisms. Raised in Pennsauken Township, New Jersey, he grew up surrounded by sisters and aunts and did a lot of listening, the background soundtrack for ‘Message to Her’ and his understanding of both a man and a woman’s perspective — a born shoulder to lean on.
Gifted with a reassuring baritone and the empathy of someone who listens more than he speaks, 3Breezy colors in tales of heartbreak and healing with smoky melodies and wide-eyed sincerity, creating optimistic anthems for lost souls in search of happy endings. After debuting his first song in October of 2020 he began a consistent pattern of releasing singles and his debut mixtape “Murda She Wrote”. His sincere lyrics and detailed story-telling quickly captivated audiences across Tik Tok, YouTube, & locally. Through his music 3Breezy hopes to uplift, empower, and spread positivity through crooning his hazy confessionals, and uplifting aphorisms.
With his previous single ‘P.O.P (Hold It Down)’ garnering strong support and rave reviews in the few weeks since its release from tastemakers such as BBC 1Xtra, KISS Fresh, Capital Xtra, Notion, Noctis Magazine, GRM Daily, Mixtape Madness and Link Up TV, Manchester rising star SVMI is not resting on his laurels and is circling right back with a new offering titled ‘MILAN’, which is produced by long-time collaborator LiTek (Rag’n’Bone Man, Bugzy Malone, Central Cee) and will lead up to the release of his debut EP with NQ Records titled Ma Mood on June 25.
Speaking about the inspiration behind ‘Milan’, SVMI says, “the track is me wanting to get out of town to escape the drama and negativity. I was tired of people getting onto me for doing music, and you can hear me responding on the verses. There was a lot going on when I made this song, from girl trouble to dealing with jealousy and spite, and the track perfectly captured my frame of mind. I wrote the song just when I was making that transition into being an artist and that’s not as easy as people think. Sometimes you just want to drop everything and fly away”.
Having broken into the scene in Manchester as a teenager creating captivating music videos for the likes of Aitch and Izzie Gibbs, SVMI began making music himself a couple of years ago and has already amassed nearly five million plays, bolstered by his breakthrough single ‘Bait Lies’, which blew up last summer, as well as fan-favourites ‘Old Friends’ and ‘Timeout’. Championed by tastemakers, critics and fans alike, SVMI is not only one of Manchester’s new rising stars pushing the Northern music scene forward, but he is also proving to be one to watch in UK music for 2021.
After staying quiet for the first few months of 2021, Yung Trybez and Young D – aka Canadian indigenous hip-hop duo SNOTTY NOSE REZ KIDS (SNRK) – are back with a deadly new track…
When CNN was reporting voting demographics during the past presidential election coverage, they decided to call the section of Indigenous voters ‘Something Else’. Indigenous Twitter and TikTok blew up with outrage, but also a reclamation of the term by turning something negative into a positive using humour and truth. The community was able to look on the bright side despite media outlets’ failure to recognize them as human beings.
Carving his own lane in rap music as the son of a legendary emcee of arguably one of hip-hop’s most recognizable brands is no easy feat. But Staten Island native SUPREME is more than ready to take on the task, with a brand new EP Love Jones, set to release this summer. The project’s lead single, ‘Thug Thizzle’, a super smooth joint which anthems taking life’s ups and downs in your stride.
Speaking on the release, Supreme say: “‘Thug Thizzle’ is basically me saying ‘I’m going to be alright with whatever life throws at me. There was a time in college- around the end of my sophomore year at Morgan State -where I wanted to drop out. I felt regretful, like if I never went to college I would have already been progressing in my music career. The only reason I went to college was to be a role model to my younger sister, and to make my mother proud. I was the only one in my immediate family to go to college. When Nipsey Hussle was murdered, I gained a new perspective. It’s like it took for his passing to put me back in my place. That’s when I started writing ‘Love Jones’. I started merging music with school work, and I started getting A’s.”
Based on the importance of relationships with family and loved ones, the Love Jones EP takes an honest approach, addressing relationships with his mother, brother, and even his complicated relationship with his father (woven throughout the project are recordings of real phone conversations between Supreme and his father, Ghostface).
