Washington, DC rapper Beau Young Prince, whose cool demeanor leveled his hometown audience at last weekend’s Trillectro Festival, has released “Price“– the hotly awaited follow-up to his debut single “Kill Moe.”
About the Artist..
Beau Young Prince, a self-described “Southside kid with a North Side education” bred in urban Southeast DC, attended one of the highest ranked private schools in the Northern part of the city. “I was given a really unique experience,” he speaks of that duality. “I have the ability to combine both worlds where most people can’t.”
BYP’s training on classical and jazz upright bass was tempered by an eclectic playlist of sounds at home, from Marvin Gaye and Curtis Mayfield to A Tribe Called Quest and André 3000, from Lenny Kravitz and Bad Brains to DC’s legendary Go-Go scene. As a teen he hit local talent shows, open mics, and rap battles, even burning CDs that he sold on the street. A graduate of Guilford College in Greensboro, NC, BYP kept the music going, hitting the Soundcloud wave early on, and performing three years in a row at the SXSW Music Conference.
In 2016, Beau Young Prince grabbed over a million streams with “Half & Half Tea” (Top 50 Viral U.S. Spotify chart, and Spotify Most Necessary playlist), off his critically acclaimed project Until Then, produced by longtime friend, New York City producer Yalamusiq. A year later, BYP connected with French producer YMNO for the Young Futura project. BYP’s subsequent release of his Sunset Blvd EP ensured that he was destined for greatness. Def Jam A&R soon caught the vibe as the DC star finally won his seat at the table.
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:
- his hometown is Largo, Maryland
- his 2017 successful releases are I Empty Pistols, Dirty But Clean and More Den a Savage 2 (he just dropped his mixtape, No Competition, earlier this year just an FYI)
- he has worked with the likes of Gucci Mane, Zaytoven, Shy Glizzy and his crew Rich Shootas
Through his grind, Q Da Fool continues to prove that he is true to both the game and his word.
“Do You Understand” will surely keep listeners vibing all summer. Take a listen below and look out for Shy Glizzy’sAin’t For Everybody project due out this summer.
EBENEZER RELEASES VISUAL FOR ‘ASK AROUND’
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.
