Compton’s Azjah and BK’s DUSTY LOCANE Connect on New Remix

Published

on

Blessed with an innate sense of melody, Compton artist Azjah crosses boundaries with her sharp storytelling. Connecting with a fellow riser from the opposite coast, Azjah recruits DUSTY LOCANE for “Try It” (Remix). Dominated by a mellow minor-key guitar loop, “Try It” bursts with an aggression that belies its instrumental, as Azjah warns potential enemies that they don’t want “no drama.” Coming through with his basso rasp, DUSTY gets on the same wavelength, showing off his appealing singing voice as he promises to “set a n**** up with a booby trap.” “Try It” (Remix) is an updated version of “Try It,” a highlight from Azjah’s  1:03 AM project, released in June.

Spanning 10 tracks, 1:03 AM 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. Tee project is home to the Bizness Boi-produced Soul Ties. which came with a video that Azjah directed herself, “Nobody,” which features a commanding guest spot from Yung Bleu“Purple Reign,” a guitar-driven banger, and 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. Featuring an additional appearance from the 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. She later 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.

Jaah SLT Throws Down and Levels Up with ‘One Year Later’ Project

Published

on

By

With his meticulous mania and flair for ferocity, Charlotte’s Jaah SLT is poised to be the next North Carolina native to take the rap game by storm. After a year of growth and increased focus on his craft, Jaah returns in full-force to share One Year Later, his new project. Jumping from brutal bangers to melodic vibe-setters and everything in between over 12 tracks, Jaah’s attentive versatility and quality-over-quantity approach to music is evident throughout.

The project boasts a selective feature list highlighting Jaah’s support from his SLT family, with verses from his crewmates Loweye SLT and SleepWalkin SLT as well as an appearance from “Break S***” hitmaker, Jasiah. On Jaah’s deftest, most refined project to date, he continues to let his unpredictable, athletic flows shine while keeping listeners on their toes with his brutally candid, confident lyricism. Jaah’s originality and irreplicable swagger shine through on every second of the project, with ear-catching bars like, “I’m a JUCO dropout, turned to a standout/Racks in the safe, I ain’t never had a handout,” on standout track, “Hot Lil N****.” One Year Later is available everywhere via Alamo Records.

One Year Later arrives following the release of recent singles, “I Love It” ft. Jasiah, “For The Week,” “Rent Free,” “Toxic” and “Feeling Hot,” all of which appear on the project. The latest efforts from Jaah SLT follow in the wake of “In My Bag (Remix),” featuring Dallas diva Erica Banks. The original “In My Bag” gained particular traction in Texas, the home of chopped-and-screwed music, thanks to a TikTok dance trend set to a slowed version of the song, inspiring over 150k video creations. Before releasing the Erica Banks-featuring remix, Jaah shared a Houston-style remix of the song produced by club god BeatKing. With over 2.3 million streams on Spotify, “In My Bag” was the second TikTok hit for the North Carolina native, following 2019’s “Tuff” which hit 32 million streams on Spotify after generating over 250k video creations on the video platform.

With One Year Later, Jaah SLT looks to continue his upward trajectory and stake his claim as Charlotte’s next star. Stay tuned for more.
