The 9-track body of work weaves in and out of anthems and ballads alike, with the lead single, “Rose, shaping the storyline by exploring the dark side of fandom with the idea that no matter how big or small an artist is, you never know who is in the audience.

The glitchy choir of “Guardian angel” gives way to some of his most precise and potent rapping, hinging on rapid fire rhymes. Haunting piano burns against his emotive lyricism on the steamrolling of “Train food” as he offers up a detailed and diaristic confession, “I was lost.” “Staring at the Sky” snaps from an acoustic moan into a thunderous scream backed by drums from none other than blink-182’s Travis Barker. Over ominous guitars, Kanye West locks into a pummeling duet with XXXTentacion on the rap/rock mash-up “One Minute,” also featuring Barker’s percussive talents. Everything culminates on the delicate and dark dreamscape of “what are you so afraid of.” A faint acoustic murmurs beneath his soulful delivery on the final question, “What are you so afraid of? Is it love?”

Check out the full tracklisting of XXXTentacion’s transformative masterpiece below.

The single “BAD!” preceded the record, clocking over 150 million YouTube views to date. It also debuted at #16 on the Billboard Hot 100 and is pending RIAA gold certification.

City Girls Release “Season” Music Video

City Girls release their music video for Season featuring Lil Baby Watch it HERE. Season comes after Girl Code (Quality Control Music/Motown/Capitol Records). Girl Code includes features from Cardi B, Lil Baby, and Jacquees. They also recently released the new song, TWERK,  with the remix version featuring Cardi B included on Girl Code.
Listen to Girl Code HERE.
One of the most provocative female hip-hop duo in years, the Miami duo of JT and Yung Miami are the next generation of female rappers. On their acclaimed debut project, PERIOD, City Girls speak out as raw and confident — and with as much swagger– as the boys do, ultimately flipping the script on Hip Hop.
And people are listening. With nearly 100 million streams, JT and Young Miami are uncensored, unapologetic, sharing a commitment to their hood roots and a bold insistence that the culture they come from should stop them from getting a piece of the cash pie.
Most recently City Girls caught the ear of Drake, an early fan who recruited them for his 10-week chart topping song In My Feelings. It’s not all about Kiki When the City Girls I’ll show you how to network. F*ck that Netflix and chill; what’s your net worth? They unapologetically rap about sexual and financial empowerment, and they are not looking for any broke boys.
As Refinery29 states: This emerging group taps into the same enterprising spirit applauded in male rappers when they wax poetic about selling drugs or pimping to escape bleak financial circumstance. This female version is just as inspiring. The male gaze only succeeds in objectifying women when the sole outcome considered is male gratification. City Girls set the terms of engagement for a payday they’ve orchestrated.
With JT currently serving her sentence for credit card fraud, City Girls worked hard and banked a lot of material before she went in. As Yung Miami states: It is a minor setback for a major comeback. But perhaps the clearest explanation of the City Girl’s Girl Code is spoken in the album’s earliest moments. During a phone call from JT in prison on Intro (FREE JT), Yung Miami picks up the mic and unleashes a fiery verse that puts to rest any question of what she and her partner are here to accomplish: All my life I’ve been going against the odds/Tryna come up on me, better keep your job/A round of applause for the boss ass bitches/Who made it on their own.Éd; And as the track fades out, JT chimes in with a final message of defiance for any who would stand in their way: Éc;When I come home Period — game over.
Coach K and Pierre “Pee” Thomas of the renowned Quality Control Music label discovered the girls and took their first song “Fu*k Dat N****” from a regional hit to a national smash when it appeared on the seminal Quality Control Presents: Control The Streets Vol 1 compilation. This year Quality Control Music released City Girls’ uncensored heart-wrenching documentary Point Blank Period The documentary follows the City Girls as they break into a predominantly male-dominated industry with the release of Period. It features their reactions to hearing Drake shout them out on his record to JT working in the studio until her jail sentence starts. Exclusive interviews are included with Yung Miami and J.T., as well as industry trailblazers Trina, Kevin Coach K; Lee and Pierre Pee Thomas, exposing the complicated road to breaking female artists in the changing music landscape.

Taking rap to a new frontier, it earned an RIAA 4X Platinum plaque as he delivered a kinetic performance of the anthem on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon between constant touring. “REDMERCEDES” and its high-profile official remix with Missy Elliott and AJ Tracey saw him lap the competition yet again as his full-length debut Good For You went gold and set the stage for even bigger things to come!

Angelo David “This Place”

With so many young up-and-coming singer/songwriters in the Pop/Alternative world nowadays, it takes real genuine talent to stand out amongst the crowd and have the music world take notice. But that was just the case for Angelo David, who at only 16 has been writing and producing dynamic new tracks that brought him to performing for sold-out crowds and catch the ear of Britney Spears’ music Director Marc Delcore in 2013. Now with an EP and multiple singles under his belt including his latest “This Place” and the soon-to-be-released “The Inside”, he’s continuing to write and produce hot new tracks.
With a unique ability to convert his personal experiences to powerful lyrics and catchy musical transitions – singer/songwriter, producer, and keyboard player Angelo David began writing socially conscious songs at only 8 yrs old in his native Boston, MA.
The Britney Spears’ Las Vegas band backed Angelo at the Topsfield Fair in 2013 and he performed at Webster Hall in New York City in 2015. In September of 2017, Angelo headlined the Hard Rock stage in Boston to a sold out crowd. Over the past five years, Angelo has performed at festivals, charity events, and award shows.
Angelo released his first EP in 2013, along with his first music videos, “House Is Burning Down” (a song about being bullied) and “Mirror” (an introspection). On June 8, 2013, “House is Burning Down” trended at #4 worldwide on YouTube as one of the most popular music videos around the web. Catching the ear of Marc Delcore, music director for Britney Spears, Delcore offered to produce Angelo’s next single, “Heard it at Sunset,” a moving song about the Boston Marathon bombing. The song and video were released at the one-year anniversary of the bombing with all proceeds to benefit the One Fund.
His musical and acting talents have also been recognized by film festivals internationally. In 2014, “Heard it at Sunset” won Best Music Video at the Long Beach Indie International Film Festival and “Mirror” won Best Music Video at the Indian Cine Film Festival in Mumbai, India. In 2015, Angelo’s music video “Lonely” won Best Music Video at the Fort Lauderdale International Film Festival.
In 2017, Angelo was asked to write a song about togetherness for the Hatfield’s and McCoy’s Foundation, a nonprofit organization to benefit unemployed coal miner families in Kentucky and West Virginia who are struggling with depression and opioid addiction. He’s also been interviewed by NBC-10 TV, WSVN-TV Miami, Dirty Water TV, WBZ radio, the Boston Globe, GoodMusicAllDay, One Magazine, and other publications.
While he frequently continues to release new singles, including the upcoming “The Inside”, it’s certain that Angelo David is a rising talent that will continue to take the Pop Music world by storm!
