YN Jay & Louie Ray Are Back With “The Fawk Up”

Published

on

Rhyming with a knowing smirk, YN Jay captivates audiences with his surreal sense of humor. Connecting once again with his friend and fellow Flint, MI native Louie Ray, the rapper also known as the “Coochie Man” shares The Fawk Up,” his new music video. Armed with a hyperactive beat from Flint sound architect YungWayne616, which layers foreboding church bells over antsy piano arpeggios and stutter-stepping low-end, Jay and Ray unleash a torrent of off-color quotables about their favorite topics: “Little ass watch on your arm got your wrist mad,” spits Jay. In the video, directed by 2M Digital, the two rappers chill in their all-white Audi as Jay mugs for the camera with a series of wide-eyed grins. “The Fawk Up” follows Jay and Louie Ray’s video for The Mafia,” from their 2020 mixtape The Scoutsi, and the more recent video for the ENRGY-produced  Coochie Language,” released earlier this month and praised by HotNewHipHop.

YN Jay trended on TikTok earlier this year with his Triple S,” another collaboration Louie Ray. The latest in a long line of viral TikTok hits by the “Coochie Man,” “Triple S” has inspired over 450k video views on multiple sounds–one that taps into Jay’s unique mic presence and expressive ad-libs, and another that highlights his witty lyricism–has earned over 12 million Spotify streams, and made its way onto Spotify’s U.S. Viral 50 chart. Jay’s single “Big Hoes” is his latest to trend on the platform, recently being used in a video by Lizzo that generated over 7.4 million video views.

Jay recently dropped a video for Kakashi,” a track from his February album Ninja Warrior that also trended on TikTok (96k video creations). Earning coverage from PitchforkEntertainment WeeklyMic, and many others, Ninja Warrior showcases the viral sensation’s superior beat-riding ability and boundary-pushing bars. Featuring collaborations with Lil YachtySada BabyLouie Ray, and Rmc MikeNinja Warrior is out now.

Driven to take rap seriously after his older brother died, YN Jay quickly started to build a reputation as one of the most colorful characters in a hometown Flint scene populated almost exclusively by colorful characters. He started to get mainstream notice with his single Coochie,” from his project Coochie Land, which introduced the world to Jay’s one-track mind and eventually racked up over 26 million YouTube views. Jay is a nearly mythic figure on TikTok, generating millions of video creations on viral hits like “Triple S,” “Coochie,” “Coochie Land,” and “Coochie Scout,” and inspiring TikTok comedian @Nuhchez to splice YN Jay’s voice into Coolio’s “Gangsta’s Paradise” and create one of the platform’s most successful running jokes. YN Jay’s inimitable style earned him co-signs from Drake and Lil Uzi Vert, and the 22-year-old rapper is set to perform at Rolling Loud Miami 2021 in July.

Stay tuned for much more from the prolific YN Jay in the coming days and weeks.

In the colorful and ever-changing world of Afrobeats, a genre-hopping artist emerges with a single that not only captures the essence of the movement but also reinvents it, offering listeners a musical experience that knows no boundaries. BraveSoull and his resonating new release, “Hate Me Now,” brings tradition and innovation together.

Unveiling the Artistry of “Hate Me Now”

Since “Hate Me Now” made its seismic arrival, the effects are still being felt. The record, which is accompanied by a visually stunning music video, has shed new light on the season, infusing the scene with a dynamic blend of Afro rhythms and powerful, trap-inspired sounds that are nothing short of captivating.

BraveSoull, the trailblazing artist behind this amazing audio, is no stranger to the spotlight. His earlier works were defined by an unwavering creative vision, and “Hate Me Now” builds on that tradition with an extra layer of grit and glory. It displays the artist’s artistic development and capacity to both celebrate and transcend the genre he represents.

The Fusion of Past and Present

At its core, “Hate Me Now” is a modern take on Nas’ legendary hit of the same name, a 90s Hip-Hop track that features Puff Daddy which resonated deeply with a generation and is now given fresh life in a universe of Afrobeats by BraveSoull. This blend of past and present is more than just an homage; it is a revamping that pays homage to its origins while boldly venturing into unexplored territory.

In fact, the trendy track’s throbbing tempo, underlined by hard-hitting percussion and complex instrumental layers, sets the setting for BraveSoull’s lyrical talent. His delivery is nothing short of powerful, with words that pierce the air like a hot blade, delivering a message of strength and resistance. The song, which is both powerfully raw and precisely composed, addresses individuals who have been doubted and bruised by life’s storms, resonating with universal themes of empowerment and self-belief.

For a new generation looking for a voice that expresses their struggles and goals, BraveSoull stands up to the plate with a signature sound all of his own. His refusal to compromise, unwavering pursuit of authenticity, and dedication to his craft are evident in every note, making “Hate Me Now” an essential addition to any playlist.

In an age when mass production and commercial formulas frequently eclipse the essence of art, BraveSoull’s solid spirit is a breath of fresh air. His music serves as a reminder that, beyond the layers of production and performance, a song’s heartbeat is its soul, and “Hate Me Now” has plenty of it.
