DUSTY LOCANE Announces Debut Album, ‘UNTAMED,’ Out 11/19 Via EMPIRE | Shares New Single, “CANES WORLD”

Published

on

Complementing his deep-voiced tough talk with strong, confident melodies, DUSTY LOCANE knows what it takes to be Brooklyn’s next superstar emcee. The Canarsie native is announcing his debut album, UNTAMED, out next Friday, 11/19 via EMPIRE. In just one year, DUSTY has garnered over 250 million global streams, and he’s ready to keep feeding the streets. The album is not only a dossier of what defines DUSTY as one of the city’s hottest drill artists, but what drives him as a man through in his everyday life. It’s home to his breakout hit “ROLLIN N CONTROLLIN FREESTYLE,” as well as other certified heaters like “Rolando (Caught In The Rain)” and “RUMBLE” that dropped earlier this year and still can be heard blaring out of car stereos from Bed Stuy to Bay Ridge. The album also features appearances from label mates, Yung Bleu and OBN Jay, who each provide their own brand of melodic flair to the tracklisting. UNTAMED is now available for pre-order/pre-save here.

Along with the album’s announcement, DUSTY shares a brand new single titled CANES WORLD.” Serving as the record’s closing track, the song serves as DUSTY’s mission statement to anyone dumb enough to doubt him or his crew. He confidently spits over low-key, yet sinister drill production, reminding haters and foes how he’s stood pat and never switched up, proclaiming “Said you had faith in a n****, where that shit went?/I was in the trenches with a couple killas hell bent.” The track is a testament to DUSTY’s ability to bring listeners inside his world, even if they’ve never stepped out into the 90s a day in their life.

DUSTY LOCANE has been rapidly climbing up the NYC rap ladder, powered by the success of “ROLLIN N CONTROLLIN” and its follow-up singles. DUSTY’s second single, the follow-up hit “Rolando (Caught In The Rain),”proved that the WOO-affiliated rapper’s success was no fluke, racking up over 1 million YouTube views and 1 million Spotify streams in its first week and earning praise from Pitchfork. Both “ROLLIN & CONTROLLIN” and “Rolando” peaked in the Top 5 of Rolling Stone’s Trending 25 chart, and his third single INTRO 2 ME, PT. 1” peaked in that chart’s top 10. On just his first four singles, 21-year-old rapper racked up over 250 million combined audio and visual on-demand streams. In February, the Canarsie native turned heads with “RUMBLE,” which racked up over 13 million streams on Spotify alone since its release, and in the Spring, DUSTY shared ROLLIN N CONTROLLIN PT. 2 (PICTURE ME),” featuring a L.A.-set video that found DUSTY paying tribute to Nipsey Hussle.

With his debut album on the way and the streets of Brooklyn on his back, DUSTY LOCANE is a great bet to reach the upper echelons of rap stardom.

Vara Releases New Single “Paranoia”

Published

on

Florida-based next-gen pop star vara releases new single “Paranoia,” under the guidance of 98 degrees Jeff Timmons. Fresh off the DNA World Tour with the Backstreet Boys, vara has teamed up with Timmons to disrupt the music industry with their style that can be described as an edgy mix of alternative/pop influenced by Billie Eilish and Avril Lavigne.

Paranoia is an extremely personal song that tackles the subject of the struggles of mental health and we wanted to see if you’d be interested in having vara have this much needed conversation during an interview with you.

“Vara carries themself with such maturity, confidence, and poise, and possesses an emotional intelligence that’s quite indescribable,” says Jeff Timmons, who serves as a mentor/manager to vara.

“Vara has everything it takes to tackle the roller coaster ride of the entertainment industry, but it’s the other things they will do that excites me; the impact they will have on others with their music will undoubtedly be incredible, but the way they will empower and inspire others in their generation is something I hope to have the opportunity to witness.”

Wacotron Puts His City On The Map With New ‘Out The Blue’ Mixtape

Published

By

Putting his hometown on the map with his frank lyricism and heavy Lone Star State drawl, Wacotron is one of Texas’s most exciting rappers. Today, he shares Out The Blue, the highly-anticipated follow-up mixtape to his critically acclaimed 2021 project Smokin Texas. Highlighted by heavy trap production from Southside & 808 Mafia, among others, the 11-track effort establishes Wacotron’s status as the man in his city. He shares harrowing tales about life on the streets of Waco, weaving pearls of street wisdom and sly turns-of-phrase. 

Among project highlights are the dark Texas club anthem “Let Em Know,” as well as the heartfelt, guitar-laden “The Blues,” which finds the street veteran taking his sound in a new direction as he reckons with his past. Featuring appearances from Freebandz rapper Doe Boy and Atlanta mainstay Derez D’Shon and additional production from superstar artist/producer MarshmelloOut The Blue is available everywhere via Pick Six Records/808 Mafia.

Along with the new mixtape, Wacotron shares the video for “Game Time,” a highlight from the project produced by Project X of 808 Mafia. On top of a hauntingly hypnotic trap instrumental, Wacotron unleashes bar after bar as he warns his opps not to cross him: “I’m quarterback and I’m picking the blitz up,” he spits. In the DJ Black Messiah-directed video, Wacotron ignores ‘no trespassing’ signs as he proves he runs the streets of his hometown.

With Out The Blue, Wacotron plans to build on the success of his debut 2021 mixtape Smokin’ Texas, which received praise from ComplexHipHopDXDJ Booth, and more. He hasn’t been entirely quiet over the past year, though, as he’s made waves in the rap game with singles like “Raw” and “Free Mason” (each with over 4 million streams on Spotify). The Waco, TX native has also been an ambassador for central Texas rap, working alongside other Waco risers and boosting their careers while he becomes a star in his own right.

With the release of his sophomore project Out The Blue, Wacotron proves he’s an artist to watch in the bustling Texas rap scene. Stay tuned for much more from the young rapper in the near future.
