Dee Watkins Uses His Fame to Give Back in the Latest Video From Problem Child 3

Published

on

Known for his soul-baring lyrics and magnetic production, Dee Watkins has rapidly crafted a devoted fanbase, putting him on track to be the next rapper to blow up out of North Florida. Reflecting on his trials and tribulations before his come up, Dee shares “JPay,” his new Atuanya Priester-directed video. The new video catches Dee inside the 7,000 capacity WAMU Theater in Seattle, as he spits melodic rhymes for thousands of excited fans. Dialing it back to focus on a subject close to his heart, Dee addresses how the justice system has unfairly treated those closest to him: “And f*** the judge they don’t love us / Can’t walk a mile in our shoes, how can you judge us / Poverty child, man I swear my life was f***** up / But now I’m up, so I just thank the man above us.” 

Returning to his signature mixtape series after this year’s release of Not One Of Them, Dee’s upcoming Problem Child 3 is home to recent singles like “TBH (I’m Sorry),” “Problem Child 3 (Intro),” and “Beside Me,” the final a tribute to Dee’s close friend Ham, who passed away recently. Featuring appearances from NoCapHotboii, and QuailP, the new project stands as a statement of growth as the Jacksonville rapper reckons with his irresponsible past, seeking ways to better himself without forgetting the hard lessons he learned on the streets. Now available for pre-order/pre-save, Problem Child 3 arrives November 17 via Alamo Records

A rapper since age 10 and an artist since age 15, Dee Watkins caught fire in Florida and beyond with his crisply rhythmic flow and sharp Southern drawl. The 23-year-old artist first caught mainstream attention when he shared a remix to “Act Up” by City Girls, garnering millions of streams across platforms. He proved that he was here to stay with his origin story, “Bad Ass Jit,” a slinky rider’s anthem that racked up more than 39 million YouTube videos and inspired Young Dolph to hop on the remix. Dee built momentum in the streets with his Problem Child series of mixtapes, which included regional hits like the Pitchfork-praised “Hell Raiser” and “Fake Sh*t” ft. NoCap. 

With Problem Child 3, Dee Watkins aims to stand out as a poised player in the rap game, showing that he can tackle whatever obstacle comes in his way by using it to better himself.  Watch here below!

Trapland Pat Shares Live Performance of New Song “Cappin”

By

With his self-assured intensity and versatile rhythmic dexterity, Trapland Pat is quickly moving up the ranks of rap stardom. Offering a taste of his candid capabilities, Pat shares his 4 Shooters Onlyexclusive live performance of “Cappin,” the latest glimpse into his upcoming project, Trapnificent, coming soon via Bang Biz Ent./Alamo Records.

Reconnecting with frequent collaborator PepperJack Zoe, who produced recent singles like “Losses” and “Trap Dance,” the track finds Pat setting the record straight on his recent success and how the money didn’t change him half as much as it did the clout chasers that now surround him. Yet, with his undeniable appeal and the talent to back it up, Pat is keenly aware of his strengths as well as his value: “They don’t see the pain from this s***, just the glory/Drew this up from scratch, I get to venting ‘bout my story/Engineers feel my pain, that’s why they all tryna record me/My mouth costs your life, think twice, could you afford me?” Shot on the streets of Miami and showing off Pat’s wide-eyed charisma, ”Cappin” arrives as part of 4 Shooters Only’s “From The Block” series.

Raised in a Haitian household in Deerfield Beach, FL, Trapland Pat took it upon himself to escape his rough circumstances by any means necessary. When his football dreams came crashing to a halt after his scholarship to Indiana State was revoked, Pat threw himself into rap music. Inspired by his brother’s habit of freestyling, Pat realized he had serious talent, and spent his spare time refining his wordplay and songwriting. He made a name for himself in the south with mixtapes like Exit 41 and Pak Man, eventually earning the attention of Fredo Bang, who signed him to his Bang Biz imprint, in partnership with Alamo Records.

2021 was a huge year for the young rapper, heralded by his single Big Business.” Dominated by a simple, but infectious piano riff, “Big Business” showcased the rapper’s rare charisma, generating over 5 million combined streams and earning praise from Passion of the Weiss, who placed the song at #18 on its list of Best Rap Songs of 2021. “Big Business” was the centerpiece of the Pitchfork-acclaimed Thru The Dooran accomplished 13-track mixtape with appearances from fellow Floridians Kid Trunks and Kuttem Reese.

As Trapland Pat looks to take his searing street raps to a larger audience with the upcoming Trapnificent, stay tuned for much more music from the young rapper, and don’t dare doubt his determination to succeed.
