Azjah Drops Her Solid New Project ‘1:03 AM’

Published

on

Azjah uses her innate sense of melody to tell stories that blend romantic situations and street realities. Fully immersing herself in the late night, post-party vibe, Azjah shares 1:03 AM, her new project. Spanning 10 tracks, the new project is a showcase for Azjah’s easy melodies, emotive expression, and diaristic songwriting. Her songs are tough and vulnerable in equal measure, often commenting on her latest relationship or her upbringing in Compton.

1:03 AM is home to recent singles like the Bizness Boi-produced Soul Ties. which came with a video that Azjah directed herself, and  “Purple Reign,” a guitar-driven banger. New songs include the smooth, summer heater “I Got You,” which places her firmly in the lineage of fellow L.A. melodic masters like Blxst and Ty Dolla $ign, and the R&B-inflected slow jam “Don’t Make It Easy. Featuring appearances from fellow melodic rapper Yung Bleu, on the new single “Nobody,” which dropped on DSPs yesterday,and rising singer Mayhrenate1:03 AM is available to stream everywhere via EMPIRE.

Born and raised in Compton, Azjah has developed into one of the leading voices of L.A.’s bustling rap scene. She grew up in a musical family and developed eclectic tastes (she loves everyone from Maxwell to Lil Durk to James Blunt), but didn’t start pursuing music seriously until her older brother went to jail. Since then, she’s been dedicated to her craft–and her city’s tastemakers have been taking notice. She made the most noise with her 2018 single “Time For It,” which generated over 1 million streams on Spotify and recruited heavy hitters Shordie Shordie and Kalan.FrFr for the remix, and connected with Ty Dolla $ign for That’s Facts,” which has over 2 million streams on Spotify alone. In the past year, she’s been keeping up momentum by releasing singles like True Story and hopping on Ain’t For Me,” a song by Long Beach standout $tupid Young.

With her new project, Azjah establishes her songwriting strength and demonstrates why she’s often called the “Princess Of Compton.” It might be 1:03 AM, but you better not sleep.

MICHAL MICHAL EMBRACES THE PROCESS ON NEW MIXTAPE ‘WHY WOULD I COMPLAIN

Published

By

Michal Michal embraces the good and bad life presents on his new mixtape, Why Would I
Complain. Released on leap day (Feb. 29), you can listen to the 7-track project HERE available
on all streaming platforms. Featuring previous singles in “Know Me Better,” “Calm B4 the Storm”
with 5heriff and “don’t blame the kids,” fresh-pressed highlights like the grandiose “$ Beers,”
infectiously chill “One Day” and hypnotic “Sneaky Link” continue to showcase Michal’s refined
talent. Meshing sounds found within the discographies of Mac Miller and Trippie Redd, the
Austin emcee lets his signature rasp lead the way for every melody he tears off.


“‘Why Would I Complain’ is like the transition of the old me and the new me, as far as the artistic
version of myself,” Michal says of WWIC. “This is really just the start – a transition into
something different.” Michal’s message and his mindset for the future are simple: “Anyone can
do whatever they want in life. It doesn’t matter if you didn’t go to college, didn’t go to high
school, if you come from poverty or from wealth. Whatever you want to do can be done. And
why not? We only have one life to do it. Life is too short, so why would I complain?”

JAY?DUHHH RELEASES “MIND TRICKS”

Published

on

By

Richmond, Virginia native, Jay?Duhhh has announced the release of her latest single, “Mind Tricks” on Thursday, February 29, 2024 via Money By the Pound Records. “Mind Tricks,” produced by platinum music producer Mex Manny, can be described as carnivalesque whilst addressing the significant mental health issues humans may face navigating early adulthood. The sonic aesthetic of a crazy fun house, along with a maze and  house of mirrors, is interlaced throughout the musical number creating a peculiar and unique vibe.

“I wrote my new single “Mind Tricks” to  empower people to overcome daily obstacles such as their fears, doubts, the opinions of others/ the world, other people’s bad decisions, and the overall negativity that the world can sometimes bring. It’s easy to lose yourself in a world that is full of judgment and constantly moving. Sometimes you need to sit with yourself to realize what YOU need to be able to accomplish everything your heart desires. Life isn’t easy, and there will always be things that try to stop you from what you need to do, but if you stand strong, open your eyes and mind, and  stay true to yourself…. You’ll always win in the end. Never be afraid to Shine your Light. Nothing outside of you has Power over you. What I want people to apprehend from this piece is that Life is anything but easy, but you are anything but weak. Don’t let it Change who  you are.” – Jay?Duhhh
