Jay Fizzle Keeps It Mellow Like Donatello in “Zaba Freestyle”

Published

on

A staple of his Memphis hometown known for focused triplet flows and candid coolness, Jay Fizzle has been putting on for Paper Route Empire for over half a decade. Today, Jay Fizzle returns with more purple than the iced-out Donatello pendant on his chain in his new “Zaba Freestyle” video. Over a synth-booming beat that combines bouncy Memphis bass with the 8-bit aesthetic of a Nintendo game, Jay Fizzle attacks the track with a flashy ferocity, rapping, “Got big racks on me, color palette/Water like a scuba diver/Fours up on the Benzo make me sit just like a trucker driver.” “Zaba Freestyle” is the latest release in the run up to Jay Fizzle’s upcoming project, DonnaFizzle, coming soon via Paper Route Empire.

“Zaba Freestyle” follows in the wake of “4 HOS,” a showcase for Fizzle’s drawly, double-dipping delivery, and “LLD,” a heartfelt tribute to his mentor Young Dolph. Adorned with lush harmonies and a star vocal turn from Ricco Barrino, “Long Live Dolph” finds Jay Fizzle baring his soul, the South Memphis native audibly emotional when he relays his gratitude to his mentor for teaching him everything he knows: “The way I talk, the way I walk, the way I act, the way I dress/The way I do my thing up in the booth, I learned it from the best.” With over 1.4 million views on YouTube, “LLD” is the opening track from Paper Route Empire Presents: Long Live Dolph, a new compilation album from the independent label, which features appearances from nearly every artist on PRE, including Key GlockBig Moochie GrapeKenny Muney and more.

Long Live Dolph is reflective, but it is also triumphant; Paper Route Empire will continue building on the foundation that Dolph laid. Keep an eye on the young and hungry PRE roster, as nearly every one of them plans to drop plenty of music this year. Already, the year brought Time Is Muney, a new project by Kenny Muney, and Yellow Tape 2 (Deluxe), an expansion of Key Glock’s Billboard Top 10-charting Yellow Tape 2. With DonnaFizzle and much more on the way, 2022 is Paper Route Szn.

Big Moochie Grape Flexes Heavy in “Never Had Sh*t”

Published

By

Growing up in rough and tumble East Memphis, Big Moochie Grape needed to hustle hard to escape the circumstances of his birth. Recounting his rise from squalor to baller, Moochie shares Never Had Sh*t,” his new video single. Produced by Bandplay, who layers sliding bass and twinkling keys over hard-hitting 808s and snares, “Never Had Sh*t” finds Moochie locked in, marveling at how far he’s come and celebrating his status as the People’s Champ of Memphis: “Come to my hood, they treat me like I’m Jesus/And I keep me a bunch of disciples.” In the video, Moochie relaxes with a bevy of baddies in a Hollywood mansion and practices his golf game. Coming hot on the heels of last week’s I’m The One,” “Never Had Sh*t” is the latest release from East Haiti Baby, Moochie’s next mixtape, coming May 27th via Paper Route Empire.

Chronicling Big Moochie Grape’s evolution from East Memphis hustler to budding rap star, East Haiti Baby chronicles Moochie’s rise from the trap to the top, showcasing the street acumen and sly grin that endeared him to Young Dolph, who handpicked him for his label. The upcoming tape gets a lift from Moochie’s larger-than-life charisma–throughout the mixtape, Moochie compares himself to figures like Ric Flair, Biggie Smalls, and even Joe Biden, making those grandiose comparisons feel natural. Big Moochie brings the family for East Haiti Baby, welcoming guest spots from fellow PRE rappers Key Glock and Kenny Muney, plus an appearance from Young Dolph himself. Continuing a dominant year for Paper Route Empire as they honor Dolph’s legacy, East Haiti Baby arrives on May 27th via Paper Route Empire.

Big Moochie Grape burst onto the scene in 2020 with Eat Or Get Atean hard-hitting EP that earned coverage in XXLUPROXX2DopeBoyzHotNewHipHop, and more. Home to singles like Big Juice” and Uh Huh Uh Huh Uh Huh” (4.4 million views), Eat Or Get Ate established Moochie as one of PRE’s most valuable players. The rapper returned with a vengeance on Paper Route Empire’s PAPER ROUTE iLLUMINATi mixtape, turning in highlight tracks like Illuminati Business” and Non Stop” (1.2 million views), and made his mark on Paper Route Empire Presents: Long Live Dolphdelivering the powerful and defiant In Dolph We Trust (1.4 million YouTube views).

With East Haiti Baby on the way, Big Moochie Grape is determined to hit it big and keep Paper Route Empire’s winning streak going. Stay tuned for more in the coming weeks.
