Starmoney Links Up With Sneakbo For Epic Joint, ‘Flex’

Serving up a bouncing hustlers anthem, STARMONEY adds to an exceptional recent run of music as he teams up with Sneakbo for the release of ‘Flex’.

Starmoney flexes his lyrical sway and teams it with a noteworthy delivery. Celebrating the wins, the duo drop their own verses on ‘Flex’ to take a look back at where they’ve come from and their current status in life. Sneakbo offers up the first verse with his signature flows and charisma while Starmoney litters the track with gritty ad-libs, an anthemic hook and two verses that keep his talent in the spotlight throughout.

Making his presence felt over the last two years, Starmoney has stepped out of the shadows to deliver a slew of his own heavy rap joints that have catapulted the rising star up the chain of UK rap, including the weighty collaboration ‘Catfish’ featuring Snap Capone. Starmoney made his debut with ‘Black Lives Matter’ in 2020, gaining attention with UK and Caribbean press. Deeply rocked by world events and inspired to be an activist for the cause, Starmoney made the transition from writer to rapper with a powerful message and has since continued to use his platform to speak on positive change and drive collaboration between Caribbean and UK artists, as reported by the Jamaica Observer.

Born in Trinidad and Tobago but finding a place to call home in London as a child, Starmoney has had a world of black music to fuel his personal soundtrack to life. From the calypso sounds of his mother’s singing to reggae, dancehall and hip-hop, Starmoney also immersed himself in homegrown UK sounds such as garage, grime and UK drill. The myriad of influences and cultural understandings award him a unique musical perspective that flows through the centre of his very own material.

Tayah Shares Blissful Single, ‘Momentary High.’

West London singer-songwriter TAYAH comes through with a smooth, delicate and fresh sound, coming in the form of latest single, ‘Momentary High.’

Produced by Super Beats (IAMDDB) and mastered by Jacob Cardinal (A$AP FERG, ROSALÍA, Charlie Puth), ‘Momentary High’ encapsulates a beautiful approach to rest. The laid-back rhythm and mesmerising vocals encourage staying in the moment and taking a breath.

Tayah shares, “I wrote “momentary high” during a time where I was advised to take time off and away to build back my physical and mental health. I started to delve into art and sound therapy, and created a song that reflected adapting to this change in pace, and breathing through it.”

Born and raised in West London, Tayah is an artist at the fulcrum of an evolving R&B scene, making music that tells her story her way. Having performed at venues such as The Southbank, Lovebox Festival, and Notting Hill Carnival, as well as airplay on UK radio, Tayah has garnered plaudits among her peers and audiences.

Tayah combines unique and experimental sounds with her lyricism and cites icons such as Patrice Rushen, Slum Village, Missy Elliot, and Mary J. Blige as pivotal influences in her music. ‘Momentary High’ follows the release of dual single & visual ‘Is It Me, Hennessy?’, ‘8 ’Til Late’ and her debut EP ‘Wonderer Of The West’, which introduced her distinct lyrical and storytelling prowess.

Chris Budden Drops Introspective Rap, ‘Confessions’ + Video

Returning from a two-year hiatus as the anticipation for his long-awaited and highly anticipated third mixtape continues to intensify, UK rapper, songwriter and producer CHRIS BUDDEN is back with ‘Confessions’ – a glorious melodic rap track in his trademark ‘Trap Rockstar’ style, which sees the East London native in captivating introspective mode as he opens up about all the things that he feels he can only get off his chest through the music. The track was written by Budden and co-produced with Cee Figz, who has also worked with the likes of Popcaan, Wretch 32 and Fredo.

Whether it’s dealing with heartbreak and past relationships, or battling with addictive behaviour, or remembering his friend that he lost due to knife crime when he was only 14, or navigating the music industry, Chris Budden bares it all on his new single .

Speaking about ‘Confessions’, Chris Budden says, “The song ‘Confessions’ is me admitting to my wrongs, but still being too numb to them to change my bad habits. It’s like I’m going on a guilt trip, but still too proud to apologise. For the ‘Confessions’ video, it was set in a mansion, and if you notice, there’s not that many close angle shots as I like to have a mysterious slant to what I do. With this video, I want the viewer to feel my pain, but at the same time, go on a party trip with me”.

Since making his debut on UK rap icon Yungen’s 2016 single ‘Every Night Late Night’, Chris Budden has been on an upward trajectory with his unique ‘Trap Rockstar’ style that mixes his UK rap foundation with sensibilities from Atlanta’s rich hip-hop landscape that has inspired him over the years. With two mixtapes Wudnt Be and 13:33, over 40 songs, and co-signs from the likes of Tim Westwood, Wretch 32 and Wiz Khalifa under his belt, Chris Budden has been hard at work with producer Cee Figz on his upcoming comeback project, led by new single ‘Confessions’.
