Afrobeats record producer and artist Lancky Cresco releases “All This”

Published

on

Multifaceted Nigerian-American artist and record producer Lancky Cresco today shares a brand new single titled, “All This.”

The talented artist renowned for his cross-genre sound palette of Hip Hop, R&B & Afrobeats strikes again with this cathartic record that has him wear his heart on his sleeve. “All This,” is a creative blend of sounds and melodies that incorporates various elements into it – making for a dynamic work of art that sets the tone for who Cresco is.

Combining strummed guitars, haunting background cacophony, rhythmic shakers, among a raft of sounds, this Lancky cut, like the majority of his works, is sticky with emotion, grosses a fullness about it, and has an almost heartbroken texture. Subject matter wise, Lancky is in a lamentation state of an ex-lover as he combs through different feelings to share this powerful record. The track is a well-rounded effort of pain. 

“Looking at the world around us we have all this beauty, we need to take time to appreciate it,” Lanky Cresco says.

Lancky, who has made a name for himself for managing to bridge traditional influences of music with a modern approach, follows this song after his earlier releases “DONGOYARO” & “Super Glue.”

“Helping people is what is making me dedicate my life to music,” he says. “I believe music can change the world, and I want to contribute my music to uplift people, changing the world one step at a time.”

His bombastic vibes are clear for everyone to vibe to on “All This.” He has previously stated his music “is medicine for good mind and body” and this recipe is again reinstated on his latest single. 

He started making music from an early age while he was in elementary school in Nigeria before joining the choir to further his prowess on the drums. With a profound background in music, he has now developed his craft into a full-throttle music production craftsman and mix engineer that conjures savory sounds that exude feel-good vibrations. He is also a singer by design and can stir up different inflections and melodies to deliver meaningful messages through song.

Ryck Jane Sets The Tone With “No Problems” + “You Gone Learn Today”

Published

By

Ryck Jane

The first thing we see in Neesin Williams’s vibrant video for “You Gone Learn Today” is Ryck Jane’s earrings. They’re hard to miss — and they also might’ve been a challenge to wear. The two matching accessories that dangle from the rapper’s lobes appear to be made of solid gold. But the most notable thing about them is what they signify. They’re L.A. logos: twin declarations of allegiance to the city and scene that made her.

Even without the earrings, fans would know exactly where Ryck Jane was from. It’s not just her California drawl, the left coast pattern of her cadences, or the hard Los Angeleno funk that forms the bedrock of her irresistible recordings. It’s also in her dedication to glamour and her scrupulous attention to every detail of presentation. Jane knows exactly how to showcase her fierce individuality. She may be a new artist, but she handles herself like a showbiz veteran. She believes that she was born to inhabit the spotlight — and single after single, she demonstrates that her confidence isn’t misplaced.

“You Gone Learn Today” is her boldest declaration of autonomy yet. On the track, Ryck Jane raps about the inevitability of her rise and underscores her theme with a performance that’s relentless, colorful, and loaded with personality. Call it a message to the nonbelievers — who are getting harder and harder to find. The production backs up her boasts: the track is muscular and hypnotic, decorated with a thick, serpentine bass synthesizer lead, skittering beats, a thumping kick drum, and chanted backing vocals. The deep musicality of the track arrangement is a reminder that long before Ryck Jane found fame as an independent rapper, she’d distinguished herself as a trumpeter.

That horn shows up on “No Problems. The track is a centerpiece of Jane Got A Gun, the rapper’s scalding 2023 album. It’s slinkier and more subtle than the rambunctious “You Gone Learn Today,” but as the video makes clear, it’s another message to the world that Ryck James can’t be stopped. Just like the “You Gone Learn Today” video clip, “No Problems” is a showcase for the artist’s unique, and unerring sense of style.  It’s all here, and it’s all wild, and worn with the self-possession of a queen.

Still riding “High” off his recent collaboration with Dylan Chambers and ‘Best Melodic Rap Performance’ GRAMMY win for Lil Durk’s “All My Life” featuring J. Cole earlier this year, Miami musician LunchMoney Lewis delivers “Rain or Shine.” Co-produced by JulianBeatz & BRIANXWHITE, “Rain or Shine” is a record about believing things will get better even when everything feels hopeless. In current times where there is so much pain in the world, Lewis wrote the Hip-Hop / R&B-influenced track to help us overcome life’s hurdles with love.

“In light of everything going on in the world, I’ve been in a very tough place creatively about what I wanna write about. Seeing so many innocent lives taken pushed me to make something that gives people hope in some fashion, rain or shine. We will continue to push love and love only, even in the face of darkness,” states the talented triple threat about the inspiration behind his latest leak.

Best known for his work with Dr. Luke as a producer, LunchMoney Lewis first broke into wide recognition as a rapper after appearing on the song “Trini Dem Girls” from Nicki Minaj’s 2014 album ‘The Pinkprint.’ He also co-wrote Jessie J’s single “Burnin’ Up” from her album ‘Sweet Talker,’ and Fifth Harmony’s single “Bo$$” from the album ‘Reflection.’ In 2015, he released his debut single as a solo artist, “Bills”, which peaked at 79 on the Billboard Hot 100 and peaked at number one on the ARIA Charts.
