Bandgang Lonnie Bands Shares “Where Is Marshall”

Published

on

A student of hip-hop with a sharp sense of humor, Bandgang Lonnie Bands has a way with punchlines that would make fellow Detroiter Eminem proud. Paying tribute to Detroit’s most famous rap export in his new video, Lonnie shares Where Is Marshall.” The song is produced by L.A. sound architect Cypress Moreno, who mutates Dr. Dre’s classic beat for “The Real Slim Shady” by adding the distorted 808s and bouncy snares of modern Michigan rap. Using his own nonchalant, sing-song flow, Lonnie recounts growing up not far from Eminem’s home and brags about “breaking bad like I’m Heisenberg” and having “dope so good the fiends stalk you.” Directed by Anfy, the video deposits Lonnie in a trailer park not dissimilar to where Marshall Mathers grew up, as the 6 Mile rapper stars in moments that evoke Em’s best videos, including “The Real Slim Shady,” “My Name Is,” “Forgot About Dre,” and “Lose Yourself.” “Where Is Marshall” is a highlight track from Hard 2 KillLonnie’s acclaimed album, released in October.

Arriving months after Lonnie survived a near-fatal shooting incident, Hard 2 Kill brims with a sense of energy and urgency that adds drama to each piano riff and 808 thump. On the album, Lonnie rhymes with a new level of fearlessness, discussing his exploits in the streets, demonstrating his rap supremacy, and daring the opps to take another shot at him. H2K benefits from Lonnie’s spectacular ear for beats, each of which slyly subverts the kinetic, piano-heavy Detroit sound that he helped popularize with BandGang and can be heard in his video singles “Foreva Rollin” and “Glocks & Choppas.” Praised by PitchforkStereogumConsequenceHowNewHipHop, and many others, and with guest spots from ESTGeeOhGeesyYoungNudyBIG30ReeceYoung’nOnFully, and more, Hard 2 Kill is available everywhere via TFEntertainment.

With over 100 million YouTube views in the bank, BandGang Lonnie Bands is ready to prove that he’s one of the best bar-for-bar rappers in the game today. He made his name as one of six members of BandGang, a Detroit collective that helped bring the piano-heavy sound that now dominates Detroit to the forefront. The 26-year-old rapper made his name as a solo act with his KOD project, acclaimed by Pitchfork, and expanded his audience with guest appearances on tracks by Shoreline MafiaDrego & Beno, and more. Though the last two years have been hard, punctuated by Lonnie’s near-death experience and the loss of several close friends including BandGang Paid Will, the rapper emerged from his trials stronger as a man and an artist, determined to support his family by doing what he loves most–making music.

DUSTY LOCANE & 3Kizzy Drop ‘Em Like Flies on “Demise”

Published

on

By

With his stone cold swagger and rumbling rasp, DUSTY LOCANE has plenty of bite to back up his bark. Connecting with 3Kizzy, a suvy from DUSTY’s home neighborhood, the Canarsie capo keeps a steel surprise for anyone wishing to see his “DEMISE” in his new video single. Kicked off by 3Kizzy, who appeared on DUSTY’s 2021 debut album, UNTAMED, the track is nothing short of a workout, with the duo daring listeners to keep up as they ring off their tough talk: “Know that we roll like the task force/Don’t give a f*ck ‘bout Illuminati, I got demons I ain’t ask for.”

Directed by MIDAS, the video for “DEMISE” feels like GTA meets Friday the 13th, as Kizzy and DUSTY fort up in an eerily neglected cabin in the woods. With its newspaper-lined walls draped in yellow tape, the structure evokes a different strain of horror. The house is haunted, but by its occupants, and any opp bold enough to come knocking is bound to get shook.

“DEMISE” arrives on the heels of “ROLLIN N CONTROLLIN Pt. 3 (BEEN ROLLIN)” (1.6 million views since its late July release), DUSTY’s first single since his debut album, UNTAMED, which capped off a massive 2021 for the 23-year-old artist. In December, DUSTY joined the exclusive ranks of artists like Olivia RodrigoCoi LerayPooh Shiesty, and many more, as a member of the #RIAAClassOf2021 after receiving his first GOLD certification this year with his debut single, “ROLLIN N CONTROLLIN FREESTYLE,” which racked up over 200 million combined streams. The EMPIRE artist struck gold again with “Rolando (Caught In The Rain)” (86 million Spotify streams) and  “ROLLIN N CONTROLLIN PT. 2 (PICTURE ME),” which generated well over 131k video creations on TikTok

Stay tuned for much more music from the Canarsie native as summer rolls on.

The Homies Hit The Beach and the Rooftop in the “Thirsty” Video

Published

By

Masters of the DIY grind, Louisville rap crew The Homies know how to have a good time. Today, the 4-man collective comprised of Ace Pro, 2forwOyNE, Shlobb, and Quiiso share the new video for “Thirsty.” Produced by group member 2forwOyNE, “Thirsty” combines elements of two late ’00s rap cuts–using a sped-up sample of Drake’s “Houstatlantavegas” and vocals of Missy Elliott’s “Ching-A-Ling”–into a cohesive and incredibly catchy whole. Directed by Ace Pro, the video has a breezy summer vibe, as The Homies play beach volleyball with a group of fine ladies. The follow-up to “Shake,” which arrived with a Hype Williams-esque video, “Thirsty” is a highlight from It’s A Lot Going On, The Homies’ next album, and it arrives shortly after they hosted celebrities like Jack Harlow, Cole Bennett, Master P, and many more for their annual Celebrity Kickball Tournament in Louisville.

The perfect recipe to cool down the dog days of summer, It’s A Lot Going On compiles 14 brand new tracks into a sleek and boisterous package. Ping-ponging from hard-hitting trap on tracks like opener “Out Here” and the funky “Had To,” to effervescent rhythmic anthems like “Goat Mami” and “Trouble,” the album is buoyed by the chemistry of the four artists. Marked by playful lyricism and easygoing melodies, It’s A Lot Going On percolates with creative energy and signals even bigger things ahead for the Derby City natives. With appearances from MarzzJace, and Australian artist Mason Dane, who The Homies met on a recent sojourn Down Under, It’s A Lot Going On arrives on August 19th.

The “Thirsty” video arrives shortly after The Homies announced that they’ll be joining their Private Garden co-founder Jack Harlow on his “Come Home The Kids Miss You Tour” this fall. Also featuring support from the City Girls, the 26-date tour gives Ace Pro, 2forwOyNE, Shlobb, and Quiiso the chance to show off their performance chops in front of arena-sized audiences. The tour kicks off on September 5th in Cincinnati, just a few miles up the road from The Homies’ hometown. Tickets are available now.

With much more music on deck and an unshakeable passion for their craft, The Homies are ready to follow in the footsteps of their friend Jack Harlow from the Louisville underground to the rap mainstream. Sit back, and watch their rise.
