HOUSTON RAPPER UNVEILS OFFICIAL VIDEO FOR LABEL DEBUT TRACK, “MIGHT NOT LIKE IT”

KenTheMan announces new label partnership with Asylum Records. The Houston rapper celebrates with the release of the companion video to her unapologetic new track “Might Not Like It,” out now on all streaming platforms. Filmed by Trill Art, KenTheMan linked up with her hometown station 97.9 The Box and DJ Young Jas to pay homage to her Texas roots and show love to her day one supporters. Watch the freestyle-esque visual HERE.

On the new label partnership, Ken shares, “I feel like me and Asylum picked each other because they listen, they understand and they’re hungry just like me. I can’t wait to take over with them!”

Produced by Bigg Cuz, “Might Not Like It” showcases the distinctive and free-spirited bars that catapulted Ken to Top 10 on the Apple Music Hip Hop charts with her 2020 breakout project 4 da 304’s. Heralded by Complex as a “Rapper To Watch in 2021,” Ken’s no holds barred approach to creating female anthems solidifies her as one of the freshest new voices in music.

Houston rapper KenTheMan is building a strong foundation rooted in versatility, vibrancy and vitality. The Texas native first affirmed her talents for writing in the third grade, taking home a school prize for poetry. In the years that followed, Miller let her fiery ambition and trust in her path guide her forward, later returning to her love for music to see where it could potentially lead. After adopting her KenTheMan moniker and making a promise to her father she’d go back to school if music didn’t pan out, she went all in on her craft.

While balancing motherhood with finding her footing as a rapper, KenTheMan continued to put in her 10,000 hours, experiencing hard-earned breakout success when her single “He Be Like” went viral in spring 2019. Written in her car in between delivering for DoorDash and Uber, the song enabled her to be able to quit gig work and pursue music full time. As the track garnered millions of streams across platforms and propelled her career to new heights, KenTheMan’s bold, sex-positive anthem became the first of many in her burgeoning catalog.

Determined to persevere and continue building momentum despite facing difficulties caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, KenTheMan retreated into writing mode, dropping her debut EP in August 2020. Released independently, 4 Da 304’s is a powerful offering that swiftly resonated with fans, climbing to No. 9 on the Apple Hip-Hop Charts and generating more than three million streams within its first 24 hours. As KenTheMan continues to hone her distinctive sound, her skills as a multifaceted rapper consistently shine through.

With a lyrical prowess that can compete with the best of ’em, KenTheMan is as much at home delivering raunchy punchlines as she is crafting melodic narratives through engaging storytelling, tactical metaphors and infectious hooks. Proud to have worked her way into the national conversation and become part of a rich lineage of strong-willed women in rap—all on her own terms—KenTheMan can currently be found readying her debut project in partnership with Asylum Records.

Off the heels of Fridayy’s monumental GRAMMY nominations, including one in the highly coveted category of Song Of The Year, he returns with the remix to his single, “Blessings” featuring breakout Afrobeats Nigerian artist, Asake. The original version of the song was released in October on Fridayy’s debut EP, Lost In Melody. Produced and written by the Philadelphia native, Fridayy takes a drive down memory lane, citing how far he has come in the music industry and how he has God to thank for it all. Asake seamlessly adds a global flare to the remix, reciting his verse in his native tongue of Yoruba; he discusses how he is not perfect but thankful that God still helps him shine. 

The powerful message of gratitude is truly brought to life in the simplistic yet powerful visual directed by “Empty Stomach” collaborator JakeTheShooter and even features footage of Fridayy celebrating his recent successes with his hometown friends in Philly, where Meek Mill recently brought him out to perform during the MC’s 10th anniversary concert for Dreams & Nightmares.

With multiple GRAMMY nominations, a bevy of big name collaborations, and a career that is quickly skyrocketing, Fridayy serves as an inspiration to all creatives who have wondered when their time was coming.

STREAM “Is This Real Life” HERE

Romantic love is a beautiful emotion to experience especially when shared with the right person. Listen as Casper Sage eloquently expresses the euphoric feelings that true love brings. When asked to describe the single, Sage had this to say, “Both lyrically and sonically, the single describes how life is lit up by love and makes the most simple items or aspects of a day seem almost larger than life. Similar to the first Christmas in someone’s memory or a first kiss.”

“Is This Real Life?” was written and produced by the multi-hyphenate talent himself. The single also is Sage’s third musical output of the year since the release of the single, “Rodeo Clown” last month and his critically-acclaimed debut EP, Casper Sage, which was released at the top of the year. 

“Is This Real Life?” will undoubtedly float all the way past the holiday season and into the new year, solidifying Casper Sage as an artist to watch for 2023!
