Fredo Bang & Yungeen Ace Join DKE Author On His New Project “No Regrets”

Published

on

South Florida hip-hop artist DKE Author brings a level of introspection, humor, and character to his music. Having explored music as a child trying his hand at the piano, drums, and guitar, his future began to materialize. After graduating from high school in West Palm Beach, DKE earned a degree in Psychology but opted to shift gears, focusing on his first love of music. Now based in Miami, the 23-year-old phenom established his brand utilizing his artist moniker, with the DKE in his name an acronym for Dark Knight Empire.

Drawing inspiration from medieval times, where the Dark Knight was one of the most powerful figures in the kingdom, the historic reference speaks to DKE’s propensity for making an impact. The impact was certainly felt in 2019 when DKE released his breakout track “That Guy” which generated over 2 million streams and received airplay on SiriusXM’s Hip Hop Nation. DKE Author’s first mixtape Respect The Dark featured A-list contributions from Go Grizzly (Future, A Boogie), Hitmaka (Meek Mill, Big Sean), Smash David (Chris Brown, Khalid), and Quando Rondo. Piling up millions of streams, receiving critical acclaim and with momentum at an all-time high, DKE unveils his new project No Regrets.

The 15-song project finds DKE Author, the melodic wunderkind, floating through tracks with ease as he goes bar for bar over instrumentals produced by Yung Tago, Zach808, and more. DKE recently garnered success with his previously released singles “Revenue,” “Ghetto Love,” and “Fake Love” featuring Yungeen Ace which collectively amassed hundreds of thousands of streams across DSPs. Elsewhere on the project, artists like KaMillion appear on “Need A Thug” and Fredo Bang assists on “Act A Donkey.” Check out the project here and find out why Elevator Mag dubbed DKE, “a bonafide storyteller to craft relatable narratives over lavish soundscapes.”

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.
