AURORA ANTHONY TAKES NYC BY STORM IN NEW SINGLE AND VIDEO “LIL WOLFY”

Published

on

Leading up to his debut album TUNDE releasing on September 10th, New York’s sought-after fashion muse and rapper Aurora Anthony drops a new single and video entitled “Lil Wolfy.” This is the third single from the forthcoming album threading together his narrative of the wolf. 

Stream “Lil Wolfy” HERE and watch the music video HERE in partnership with heavy Sounds Lab. 

Fans may know that “Lil Wolfy” is Aurora Anthony’s nickname and in this introspective heavy hitter, Aurora exchanges conversation with his subconscious over minimalist production. In the striped back video, Aurora dominates the underground of New York as the king of the Lower East Side. He has remained consistent with using black and white cinematic visuals to bring his lyrics to life as he raps, “I’m jaded, I’m faded but always in the latest. My friends turned to haters, uhh, but I knew they was basic and never going to make it.”

Overall the theme of the song and the video is to continue to fight until you win. This will be explored more in his upcoming short film releasing on September 10th with the the TUNDE album. Stay tuned!

About “Lil Wolfy” Aurora Anthony said, ““Lil Wolfy” is one of my favorite songs on the album. The song title refers to my younger self, when I was running around, doing things (sometimes not so legal things), thinking that’s what I had to do to fit in or make it out. In the song, as I often do, I’m reflecting on what that time in my life was – cuz it feels lightyears away, I barely recognize myself then. Aka “I hate me because of you”.”

This song and video follows “Cartier” which received critical acclaim and the sensational “Terracotta.” Global Money World was in awe of the track and said, “Aurora‘s lyrics are as raw as it gets, spitting with plenty of bravado matched with the perfect balance of a hard flow in the rapping, and soulful vocal approach in the chorus over this production

For the upcoming album TUNDE, Aurora tapped his close friend Reginald Sylvester II to create an original painting for the cover art. This dynamic pair collaborating lends to Aurora‘s creative foresight as a tastemaker in New York’s art scene. Reginald Sylvester II is a critically acclaimed American artist that has received praise from ArtsyOFFICE MagazineHypebeastHighSnobiety, and more. In his large-scale canvases which are currently on display in London at Maximillian William gallery, his figures emerge from more abstract brushwork. 

TUNDE is Aurora Anthony’s specially-curated art project representing all sides of his lifestyle and Sylvester’s cover art captures that story exquisitely. Get lost in the smooth sounds of Aurora Anthony as he continues to invite listeners deeper into his world.

BraveSoull Arrives With An AfroBeats Fusion “Hate Me Now”

Published

on

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. For now, get familiar with this trailblazing talent here at 4Sho Magazine! Lastly, let us know your thoughts in the comments!
