Key Glock Celebrates Glocktober With “Da Truth”

Published

on

It might seem like he exaggerates the extent of his flyness, but Key Glock only traffics in cold hard facts. Channeling Paul Pierce as he pulls up from center court, Key Glock shares Da Truth,” his latest single. Produced by rising trap sound architect Pyrex Whippa, “Da Truth” mixes entrancingly atmospheric keys with a relentless subwoofer assault. Sitting firmly in the pocket as he cuts through the beat’s ample negative space, Glock works a nursery rhyme-like cadence as he aims to silence those who doubt he’s one of the South’s best emcees: “Roses are red, violets are blue/I put money over b*tches, I don’t know bout you.” “Da Truth” is the latest flex-heavy banger to emerge in the lead-up to Yellow Tape 2Key’s next album, following the chaotic, Tay Keith-produced Ambition For Cash.

The follow-up to 2020’s Yellow Tapewhich peaked at #16 on the Billboard 200 and featured fan favorite songs like Dough,” ‘Word on the Streets,” and Look At They Face,Yellow Tape 2 finds the 24-year-old artist refining his style, unleashing tighter flows, delivering cleverer punchlines, and giving even fewer f*cks. Blessed with production from an A-List of sound architects including Tennessee legends Tay Keith (Memphis)Juicy J (Memphis), and Bandplay (Nashville), plus heavy-hitters from across the rap spectrum like Sosa 808Budda Bless, and more, the upcoming project finds Glock once again demonstrating why he’s one of the most respected lyricists in his city. The latest step in Glock’s fast rise to stardom, Yellow Tape 2 arrives later this fall via Paper Route EMPIRE.

The upcoming Yellow Tape 2 continues a busy year for Glock, as he’s spent time collaborating with his Paper Route EMPIRE associates. Earlier this year, he connected with his label boss and frequent sparring partner Young Dolph for Dum And Dummer 2, their second full-length collaborative album. Debuting at #8 on the Billboard 200Dum & Dummer 2 generated nearly 36k sales equivalent units across platforms and scored the fifth-biggest streaming debut on Spotify during its first week of release. Earlier this month, the album received a glowing review from Pitchfork, who awarded the album a 7.5 score and cemented Young Dolph & Key Glock as a “once-in-a-generation” rap duo, akin to 8Ball & MJG or Method Man & Redman, and “one of the most in-sync alliances in the genre today.” Dum & Dummer 2 is the duo’s second Top 10 album, following the original Dum and Dummer, which also debuted at #8 in 2019. Glock also made multiple appearances on PAPER ROUTE iLLUMINATithe first-ever label compilation tape by Paper Route EMPIRE. Along with collaborating with fellow PRE signees like Snupe Bandz on “Blu Boyz” and Bandaid” and Paper Route Woo on “Big Ol Racks,” Glock connected with Gucci Mane for project highlight “I Do This.

Bizzy Crook Gives His Audience Free Game w/ His New Album, “La Pharmacia”

Published

By

All 2021, rapper Bizzy Crook has had his foot on the gas. From working with French Montana, contributing on Drake’s CLB album, to working with 42 Dugg and now being Grammy-nominated, Crook is well on his way to being one of the top independent artists to look out for in 2022. Today he’s here with the release of his new album, La Pharmacia executive produced by Grammy-nominated producer, Foreign Teck. The album features Crook’s latest singles, “Played Out” featuring 42 Dugg and the newly released fan-favorite, “Cartier Jaguar.”

This album reflects the growth Bizzy Crook has experienced within the past two years of his life and him honing in on being an entrepreneur. While many of us come from a not so easy backgrounds, the Miami-rapper is at point in life where he wants to experience financial freedom for the years and generations to come. La Pharmacia is the story of the underdog. Bizzy Crook encourages his listeners to make bigger and better moves in life: think generational wealth.

Speaking of longevity and generational wealth, Bizzy Crook practices what he preaches about in his music. During the peak of COVID in 2020, we all were forced to pivot in ways we never could have imagined; Bizzy Crook’s pivot took him in a direction that shocked many people. With a shortage of necessities in the hospitals, Bizzy was able to provide all things PPE related (masks, tests, syringes, and more) to many hospitals. Since this and the excitement he has for the health industry, Bizzy’s currently preparing to own his very first pharmacy in Miami.

Challenging himself to push the bar even further in life and musically, this album is Bizzy Crook’s best body of work to-date. The young Hip-Hop mogul in the making is proof that you can achieve anything you put your mind to; don’t settle for mediocracy.

Be sure to check out Bizzy Crook’s new album LA PHARMACIA out now on ALL streaming platforms. Connect with him via @bizzycrook for all new music updates, performances, and more.

Published

on

By

DUSTY LOCANE‘s booming rasp reverberated throughout the Five Boroughs in 2021, the 22-year-old artist scoring hit after hit en route to over 250 million streams. Now ready to show the world the full extent of his artistic prowess, the Canarsie rapper shares UNTAMEDhis hotly-anticipated debut album. Though he rhymes with plenty of force, DUSTY’s flavor of drill stands apart because of its deep musicality–DUSTY attacks beats with a sonorous sing-song flow, often backed up by ethereal and haunting vocal samples. Spanning 20 tracks, the album benefits from the artist’s stark and aggressive lyricism, as he shows fierce loyalty to his suvies and promises a rough time for anyone who dares cross him.

The new album is home to DUSTY’s GOLD-certified breakout hit “ROLLIN N CONTROLLIN FREESTYLE,” an eerily melodic banger that generated over 200 million combined streams, as well as follow-up smashes 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. DUSTY’s hit single ROLLIN N CONTROLLIN PT. 2 (PICTURE ME) is currently scorching hot on TikTok, trending at #9 on the app’s list of Top Trending U.S. Songs. Just last month, DUSTY shared a hair-raising video for CANES WORLD,” as DUSTY opened up about his life in the trenches and his motivations to leave that life in the past.

Beyond the hits, the project introduces new bangers like the apocalyptic,  guitar-flecked “ICED OUT,” the thug love anthem “WHAT YOU NEED,” and the Canarsie neighborhood theme song “FLOSS STATE OF MIND.” Featuring appearances from Yung BleuOBN JayRah Swish, and more, UNTAMED is available everywhere via EMPIRE.

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, the rapper racked up over 250 million combined audio and visual on-demand streams.

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