Grammy-nominated Atlanta rapper Deante’ Hitchcock releases “Alone,” his new single out now via ByStorm Entertainment/RCA Records. The slow cut, driven by the sensuous strum of guitar strings, finds Deante’ weighing the risks of letting his guard down for a potential love interest or whether they are both better off alone.
“We’re so busy trying to be understood we forget how to be understanding,” says Deante’. “Everybody’s trying to figure this thing out, but it’s so hard, man. On one end, it’s like I’m better off alone, so I don’t have to deal with anyone else’s shit, but it’s also like damn, I’m better off alone to not have to deal with my shit either. But I’m trying, ya know.”
The latest in a run of relationship-driven releases set to come from Deante’ this year, “Alone” follows the release of his Valentine’s Day-themed EP Everyday The 14th in February, which received critical acclaim. Featured by XXL, Hypebeast, HipHopDX, Okayplayer, and more as one of the ‘Best New Releases of the Week,’ Lyrical Lemonadepraised the project, noting that it “further solidifies Deante’ Hitchcock’s immense skill and versatility as an artist,” while The Sourcecalled the EP a “tight, solid listen for returning fans and newcomers alike.”
Last week, Deante’ also announced the launch of The Mother God Project in partnership with local Atlanta nonprofit Access to Capital for Entrepreneurs Inc. (ACE) Women’s Business Center. Powered by Deante’, The Mother God Project will provide assistance to 100 women within the community in order to successfully launch their own businesses. The selected participants will each have the opportunity to obtain their own LLCs within Atlanta, in addition to receiving 1:1 coaching and training.
From ‘604$tunna,’ 604Blizzy x Lil Jjay Drops “3AM” Visual
Available now on Double Up Entertainment, “3AM” shows the two new stars hitting the city in the freshest wardrobe with a pocket full of big faces and big boy rides. The two trade verses filled with slick talking, bravado, and warning of being the next big acts in today’s music. “3AM” is the perfect origin point for newfound fans of the two stars as they ascend to new heights and 604Blizzy’s album ascends to one of the hottest projects of 2023.
604$tunna is an eight-track collaboration project that features RJ Lamont, Al, and Intense. Along with “3AM,” the project includes other breakout tracks such as “Pourin’ Up In $icily,” “Triple Threat,” and “Grey Cup.” The new project follows 604Blizzy’s 2021 collaboration album, First Take with Intense.
From an early age, 604Blizzy immersed himself in the world of hip-hop, initially captivated by Tupac during his kindergarten years. His journey led him to develop a deep appreciation for Pimp C from UGK, as well as legendary figures in Houston rap and California’s G-funk and gangster rap scenes, including Spice 1 and Death Row Records. The culmination of these influences is evident in 604Blizzy’s music, a dynamic fusion of trap sounds heavily influenced by the Detroit scene.
