Warren Wint Drops New Track, ‘The Whole 9’

With support from Billboard, Noisey, Hot 97, XXL, MTV, The Source, VH1, and BET, among others, fast-
rising hip hop artist and musician WARREN WINT is one of New York’s best kept secrets, although not for
much longer as he returns with his brand new single and first offering of 2020 titled ‘The Whole 9’. The
new single from Warren Wint picks up right where he left off last year, where he amassed nearly half a
million views on YouTube releasing visuals for singles from his critically acclaimed debut album ‘Quietaskept’ such as ‘One Of A Kind’, ‘Maybe’, ‘This Way’, and ‘Keep That Energy’.

Co-produced by Othellobeats, who has previously worked with PNB Rock, Yung Ro, and Pop Smoke, among others, and V-Notes (Joell Ortiz, Shontelle, Cocoa Sarai), ‘The Whole 9’ sees Warren Wint waxing lyrical and paying homage to the boss women who “got her own s**t, that the whole 9” as he raps on the song’s chorus. The track is not only driven by Warren’s infectious flow and lyrical dexterity, but also by the glorious drums-led musical backdrop, which is reminiscent of seminal ‘golden era’ New York hip hop music, while also drawing groove influences from 80’s R&B classics.

Speaking about the inspiration behind ‘The Whole 9’, Warren Wint says, “The song takes its cue from the classic phrase ‘the whole nine yards’, which typically means everything you could possible want or have or ‘the whole package’ as I would say. It’s a tribute to boss women, and on the flipside, boss men as well, because these days, we all want to be with people that can be more than just a fun night, and who can bring something to the table. Musically, I wanted to do something that showed you could still have fun with rap music, I wanted the track to feel familiar, while remaining uniquely me”.

Currently working on his highly anticipated sophomore album, ‘Father’s Favorite’, which is set to be released this summer, Warren Wint first burst onto the scene in 2018 with his eclectic sound that’s firmly steeped in hip hop music, and infused with elements of R&B, pop, gospel, and poetry, and he has not looked back since. The New York native kickstarts his 2020 ready to come into his own as one of the best new artists coming out of The Big Apple this year, having already been backed by leading tastemakers such as Billboard, XXL, Hot 97, MTV, Noisey, The Source, BET, VH1, and Power 105.1

New Music Video: Been Hustlin’ – Guvna B

Blazing straight on to Spotify’s New Music Friday playlist, Apple Music’s Best of the Week and DJ Target’s #UKUnsigned record of the day, GUVNA B releases his new single ‘Been Hustlin’, the second track taken from his forthcoming album.

Centering on life lessons and rebelling against the status quo, ‘Been Hustlin’ is ultimately an insight into GUVNA B and the impressive journey the musician has been on. The double MOBO award-winning rap and grime star lays down energetic and inspiring lyricism with his signature delivery across the melodic rap instrumental, while cheeky samples of Only Fools and Horses draw reference to the ultimate hustler, Del Boy.

Having previously released the UK’s highest charting ‘clean’ Rap album in 2015 and subsequently achieving an Amazon bestseller for his debut book release ‘Unpopular Culture’ in 2017, GUVNA B has long since been acknowledged for both his exemplary music and audacious application to his craft. He’s played the O2 Arena, Wembley Stadium and toured through North America, Australasia, Africa and Europe. He has worked with Destiny Child’s Michelle Williams, Matt Redman, Martin Smith, Hillsong and Nick Brewer, and platforms such as BBC, Sky News, and MTV have recognised his courage and success at making a positive impact through his music.

The accompanied video is an insight to the songs inspiration. GUVNA B explained: “My dad was a proper hard worker right up until he died. I feel like I took on that trait but I was working towards the wrong things and buying lots of things just so I could stunt. This single is about me finding out what’s really important in life”.

Yet even with such poignant meaning running deep, GUVNA B displays his sharp wit and cheeky personality. Check out the new video below from black Del Boy himself.
