By

New Jersey’s own Brian Epps, aka Ace Twentyo (20-O), is a trap rapper on the rise. The Tri-state lyricist is respected in Irvington and beyond due to his ability to make do with what he was given. He has always only tried to play the hand he was dealt. As a youth, he lived with his mother and brother, and they had a hard time looking for places to stay. Once he became 15, he knew that it had become increasingly hard to push for more in his environment. He decided to grow, and he would do all he could to grow and live bigger. His plan with the music has always been to change his family’s trajectory.

The NJ-born rapper is excited to hopefully collab with artists like Toosii, OMB Peezy, Lil Baby, and more in the future. His 27 track mixtape entitled ‘bando Boyz’ is a collection of some of his best work. After he connected with SB Global Enterprise, he has been on a wave to greatness.

WILL CLAYE RELEASES NEW SINGLE “WEE HOURS”

Published

By

Hip-hop artist and Olympic medalist Will Claye releases his latest single, “Wee Hours,” out now via Red Bull Records. Written by Claye, “Wee Hours” was produced by Grammy-winning songwriter and producer DJ Khalil, best known for his work with Jay-Z, Kanye West, Drake, Kendrick Lamar, and more.
 
Drawing from his own experiences, the strength of “Wee Hours” lies in Claye’s introspective and poignant lyrics, which he delivers with a West Coast-influenced flair. As the opening melodies and subtle instrumentations float in and out of focus, the single’s smooth production is effortlessly juxtaposed against Claye’s heavy-hitting flow.
 
“This track is inspired by my city, my people, and the kids who are growing up where I come from,” says Claye of the release. “I wanted to speak for people whose voices have been suppressed. I want to inspire my people and show them that even through all the horrific things we have gone through as a people, we can make it through and rise above it all.”
 
The release of “Wee Hours” follows the announcement of Elevate, the forthcoming documentary from Red Bull, set for release on Tuesday, June 8. The short film follows Claye as he trains for the Olympics and records new music, working to make his mark on the world. As his moment in the spotlight parallels a cultural boiling point surrounding racial injustice, Claye seeks to use his voice to inspire his community’s youth, serving as a positive role model for the next generation.
