Following his debut attendance of The Grammys, which was documented by Lancaster Online, Philly multi-disciplinary Terian Mack (@TMack_vs_WORLD) delivers the first offering off soon to be released LP ‘Independence Day.’ Enlisting Windy City wordsmith Rockie Fresh (@rockiefresh) and Rihanna “Goodnight Gotham” instrumentalist Keyon Christ (@keyonchrist) for the Malik Yusef (@malikyusef) executive produced album appetizer, “I KNOW” comes paired with a futuristic augmented reality Instagram filter designed by Cybernerdbaby that allows users to summon a pyramid as well as UFOs. [Photo CreditJoshua F.

“I wanna thank GOD for keeping me safe and most importantly surrounding me with love, respect, and support! This weekend was literally a dream come true. I used to watch the Grammys with my grammy and now I’ve experienced the greatest night in music for myself. This release doubles as a sonic celebration and the beginning of the roll-out for my best body of work to date,” said the faith-fueled father of two in a statement to the press.

A brilliant songwriter, painter, and recording artist with a story of triumph and persistence, Terian’s humble beginnings speak to the underdog in us all. Raised by his grandmother, in a city where KKK rallies were still being held, a flame was ignited in Terian’s spirit pushing him to perfect his craft day in and day out. This work ethic may be why restaurants are naming meals after him and local media are now consistently covering his art. 

His hustle and skill for marketing even has non profits willing to buy his project for $1,000, similar to Nipsey Hussel‘s ‘Proud 2 Pay’ campaign. Mack is recognized as one of his city’s community leaders and serves as a creative mentor for an organization called Tru2You. Tru2You is a creative mentorship conglomerate dedicated to serving the community through self-expression and guiding the next generation of artists and activists known as artivists.


Stream Terian Mack’s “i KNOW” via Larger Than Life / United Masters below. Expect ‘Independence Day,’ to be released in its entirety on July 4th with additional production from composer Johan Lenox (@johanlenox), most known for his unique style of blending Classical & Hip-Hop genres!

Published

By

Roc Nation’s latest signee Brooklyn rapper HDBeenDope is debuting his new music video for his song “Mamba” from his latest EP project “What Can They Say” via BET Times Square Billboard and BET Music. The video made its broadcast premiere on BET Jams and the Paramount+ Times Square billboards. 

Directed by Erikson Corniel, the video opens with dynamic visuals of friends racing past HD in luxury sports cars, street bikes, wheelie-popping quads fully capturing the grit and sound of New York’s streets. The video pans out to east coast locals championing the rapper’s song going bar-for-bar rapping along at Rutgers basketball court. The explosive celebration of the track is interwoven with clips capturing the vibrant and colorful personalities of New York – fans young and old dance battling, playing the trumpet, cheering with a bottle of champagne, and more. 

The highly anticipated music video arrives shortly after the single release’s massive success earlier this year making ESPN network rotations as the song has echoed throughout some of the nation’s largest sports stadiums.  

The Brooklyn Native’s new video release comes from his latest EP project What Can They Say, produced by Dizzy Banko which marks just the beginning of HD’s career and who has already been recognized by Rolling Stone, BET Awards and more.

Kenzo Balla Keeps His Eyes Dry in “No Sympathy” Video

Published

on

By

Bursting out of NYC with the explosiveness of an elite edge rusher, Kenzo Balla is applying pressure on his mission to run up a sack. With his borough on his back like a last name on a jersey, Kenzo returns to share the new video for “No Sympathy” from his recent Mr. Ready To Blitz project. Over dizzying production from Spinback and Ron.Adg, Kenzo spits with a game-ready fury on “No Sympathy,” delivering each cautionary flex with a hard-nosed intensity: “Ballin’ on n****s, I ain’t talking scrimmage.”

The video for “No Sympathy,” shot by SozeCinema, positions Kenzo as the captain of his team rallied behind him throughout the video. The Richard Sherman to his own Legion of Boom, Kenzo’s the only one who’s visage is unobscured by hoods and balaclavas, making it clear he’s the face of this pack. With quick cuts and transitions to match the track’s rapid pace, “No Sympathy” plays out less like a music video and more like the hardest-hitting highlight reel of the season. The video for “No Sympathy” arrives as Kenzo prepares for Mr. Ready To Blitz (Deluxe), coming on December 16th.

Mr. Ready to Blitz saw Kenzo leverage his devastating explosiveness across 14 tracks, including recent singles like the high-octane, NPR-approved “Krash Out,” and the Cito Blick and Pdot Savv-assisted “Don’t Panic.” On “Feel The Rage,” Kenzo bursts onto an endearingly melancholic drill instrumental with the headstrong momentum of a mammoth nose tackle like Vince Wilfork, while more fast-paced cuts like the Rayy Balla-featured “Go Kuu” highlight Kenzo’s elusive agility as he flashes through instrumental pockets like Troy Polamalu. Like all the most elite defensive rushers in the game, Kenzo’s strength lies in his opponent’s inability to contain him– in the split second it takes to register his arrival on the track, he puts himself 10 steps ahead.

A rising name in one of the nation’s busiest rap scenes, Kenzo Balla made his mark on the scene with his relentless rhymes and high-energy vocals. Known for collaborating with fellow Bronx heavyweights like his brother TG Crippy, Kenzo kicked off his career with a frenzy of fiery videos, including local hits like “5th To Sev” ft. TG Crippy & Pdot Sav (2 million video views), “OOTAZ,” and the “Love Nwantiti”-remixing Let Me Know” (1.8 million views). This summer, the former AAU baller tore up the streets with Dead Gzz,” a vicious, uptempo missive that racked up over 1.3 million video views since its release in June.

With a blistering EP in the books and the Deluxe on its way, Kenzo Balla emerges from his perch in the Bronx to blitz the rap game. Sit back and watch his rise, because there’s no stopping it.
