DREI ROS × “LIT”

“LIT” – Drei Ros, Sy Ari Da Kid, Reo Gragun & Tray Haggerty:

Romanian born music artist Drei Ros has spent years spicing up tracks for artists such as Pusha T, Gucci Mane and Kap G. Today, he added to his already impressive collection of hit collaborations with his latest single “LIT” featuring Sy Ari Da Kid, Reo Cragun and Tray Haggerty.

Drei was additionally recently featured on the Latina trap track “Bomberos” alongside Latino/Urbano duo Los Rakas and produced by DJ duo Breakfast N Vegas. The successful single was featured on Spotify’s ‘New Music Friday Latin’ and ‘Beast Mode’ playlists. Both new singles come in anticipation of Drei’s forthcoming debut album “Excuse My Accent,” produced by by 808 Mafia (who produced tracks for Future, Drake, Migos, Travis Scott, DJ Khaled, etc.). The album, which shows a never-before-heard side of Drei as an artist, is set to release October 2018.

Drei has endured grand success in a short amount of time, leading up to the creation of his debut album. He officially began his career in 2009, teaming up with artists Burre Collins and Dyce Dylli to form the band B.O.S.S. (“building our success story”). His infectious Romanian accent added intrigue to his English raps, and brought quick success to several B.O.S.S. singles – ultimately leading to the curation of the band’s album and a tour of the Pacific Northwest.

Still new to the music industry and experimenting with his sound, Drei teamed up with more artists of different backgrounds to dabble with adding his own creative style to a multitude of genres. He’s since paired up with the likes of Jamaican Reggae legend Junior Reid, Alex Mica, Evelyn, Rick Ross, Gucci Mane, Pusha T, Krisha, etc. In 2016, Drei’s music video went viral for “Shake Dat Monkey” featuring JBo of the Youngbloodz (and Messiah on the Latin remix), garnering 3.3M+ YouTube views. Continuing his history of successful collabs in 2017, Drei released the singles “Ordinary Day” featuring Pack The Arcade and “I Need You” featuring Marvelus Fame and Bel. At the beginning of 2018, Drei teamed up with J Romero and Kap G to create “Loco” with an accompanying music video, which has already garnered 1.2M+ views on YouTube alone.

Now, Drei is out to show the world his own sound by releasing an album of his original tracks with “Excuse My Accent.” The trap album mixes English and Spanish languages, giving it the edge of an international appeal. With his Romanian roots and the lessons from his many collaborations molded into the foundation of the artist he has become, Drei’s album will have hints of his past creations – but overall be a never-before-heard music brand for fans that fully embodies this musical mastermind of ‘Drei Ros’ as an artist.

Nav and Travis Scott Release Music Video For “Champion”

Today platinum-certified Toronto rapper and producer NAV shares the music video for “Champion” feat. Travis Scott. Watch it HERE. The song is the latest single from his full-length debut album, Reckless [XO/Republic Records]. Get it HERE.

Taking over an oceanside estate, NAV filmed the video in Hawaii during the top secret sessions for Scott’s new album, ASTROWORLD, on which he’s also featured. Directed by XO’s very own Amir “Cash XO” Esmailian, the video co-stars Atlanta rapper Gunna, rising star Sheck Wes as well as Don Toliver, the latest artist to join Scott’s Cactus Jack Records.

NAV’s quiet infiltration of pop culture continues with “Champion.” It follows up the success of a string of now RIAA-certified platinum hits, including “Myself,”“Some Way” [feat. The Weeknd], and “Wanted You” [feat. Lil Uzi Vert].

NAV has quietly arrived as one of rap’s most innovative and infectious voices. Early last year he joined forces with powerhouse producer Metro Boomin for the collaborative album, Perfect Timing. Meanwhile, 2016 saw him not only co-produce the GRAMMY Award-nominated “Back To Back” for Drake, but he also featured on and produced the platinum-selling “Beibs in the trap” for Travi$ Scott’s blockbuster Birds In The Trap Sing McKnight. A streaming phenomenon, he regularly averages over 7.6 million monthly listeners on Spotify making him one of the most-listened-to artists worldwide. In addition to selling out solo shows coast to coast, he also joined The Weeknd for The Starboy Tour. Over the last year he’s garnered production credits on tracks with Kodak Black, Gucci Mane, A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie, and most recently The Carters [Jay-Z & Beyonce]. This tastemaker favorite has also received praise from Rolling Stone, Complex, Billboard, and The Fader.

DMV RAPPER Q DA FOOL DROPS ‘100 KEYS’

Just recently, the 21-year old DMV rapper Q Da Fool debuts his music project 100 Keys.

This is something all his fans were waiting for and now it’s finally here!

Just see below how the world has reacted so far since the release:

“The lyrics and the emotion of a song don’t necessarily have to flow in parallel. Listen to the twinkle-and-snap of his new Zay-produced single, “The Plug,” and you’ll hear Q mood-swing his way through the hook, going from boastful, to exasperated, to incredulous, and back around again. If it sounds like he’s scowling and smiling at the same time, he might be.” – The Washington Post

 

“Fool’s rise may seem out-of-nowhere to many, but the record deal and respect from peers is a vision he started to realise back when he was first gearing up to drop Trap Fever in 2015, even if he didn’t see it exactly panning out the way it has.” Noisey

 

Fresh off of the recent Roc Nation signing announcement, a slew of new releases, and a popular attraction of the press, the Maryland rapper is ready to take storm.

The rapper’s 100 Keys music project is his first official release on a major label. With Grammy Award-winning hit-maker Zaytoven handling the project’s production, Q takes you on a 10-track personal journey that encapsulates DMV life, personal struggle, and resilient redemption.

Much like the punchy, charged up trap song itself, “The Plug,” it is a visual testament to Q’s character. In “Normal Rapper,” Q brings a much appreciated unique flow into this story where he explains why he’s different from his current rap counterparts.

Bonita” staples Q’s presence as a lyrical threat, discussing the importance of friendship and what lengths Q would go to in order to protect the ones he loves. Q also depicts his savage lifestyle in “Fuck up the Mall,” with personal stories of his family fueling the rap fire and cementing Q as a modern lyrical force.

This is only the start for the Maryland rapper. This project will surely elevate Q Da Fool to new heights, and bring him the recognition he deserves.

Check out his new song here!

If you don’t know much about this all-star rapper, here are just a few facts to fuel your brain:

Through his grind, Q Da Fool continues to prove that he is true to both the game and his word.

EBENEZER RELEASES VISUAL FOR ‘ASK AROUND’

YouTube: https://youtu.be/j5o7bTrzphY

Today, rising star Ebenezer releases his visual for his track ‘Ask Around’. Directed by Bafic (Mabel/Lily Allen) and his signature style, the video follows Ebenezer on a night out with his friends through a fly on the wall perspective around his city. The video premiered earlier today via The FADER and the song is available at all digital retailers.

‘If you ask around you’ll know we are the life of the party’

In a few short years Ebenezer has worked with the likes of Rejjie Snow, Jeremih, Ty Dolla $ign and Craig David. With the recent release of “Cliché” featuring PnB Rock, Ebenezer heightens his musical journey, by genre-bending his emotionally tinged R&B by combining it with trap, completely void of the usual pretence that’s flooded the genre. In a way, it could be described as conscious turn-up music.

Born in East London, Ebenezer spent most of his childhood at a cousin’s house in Hackney along with his brother and sister. While his mother was busy holding down three jobs, Ebenezer and his brother spent most of their free time listening to music, watching MTV Base and learning to produce.

The 20-year-old Southeast Washington, D.C. rapper carved out a burgeoning following with his breakout “Hang Wit Me” and a string of buzzing mixtapes: 17 N Savage and Beat Bully Vol. 1 in 2014 and 2015’s Street Runner, On Site, and Beat Bully Vol. 2. Glowing praise would come from XXL, Vibe, The Fader, and Noisey who dubbed him “one of [the DMV’s] newest rising stars.” 2017 saw him ink a major label deal with Republic Records as his fiery single “Pull Up Hop Out” racked up 5.4 million Spotify streams in under a month’s time.
