Rod Wave & Lil Durk Drop Visual For “Already Won”

Published

on

In just two short years, Rod Wave evolved from a talented and promising artist into one of rap music’s most-streamed artists and best live performers. On his new video Already Won,” Rod reveals that being a budding superstar is much harder than it looks. Over a piano-led beat from Will-A-Fool, sampling the classic New Edition ballad “Can You Stand The Rain,” the St. Petersburg, FL native trades verses with fellow melodic master Lil Durk, their lyrics proving that the paranoia and pain don’t go away when you attain fame and fortune.

In the video, Durk and Rod belt their verses in a dark room, chronicling the story of an aspiring rapper’s journey from the streets to stardom. Whether they follow Durk’s slow burn or Rod’s meteoric rise, any aspiring artist can learn a valuable lesson from the new video: even after you’ve won, the hard work is far from over. Peaking at #60 on the Billboard Hot 100, “Already Won” is a highlight track from Rod’s SoulFly (Deluxe) album, out now via Alamo Records.

With sold out dates to come in Chicago, Pittsburgh, Boston, Phoenix, and L.A., and low-ticket warnings in several other cities, Rod is solidifying himself as one of the most electrifying and emotional performers in the hip-hip space

Reaching #3 on the Billboard 200, SoulFly (Deluxe) adds nine new songs to Rod’s chart-topping SoulFly album. Four new songs from the deluxe edition charted on this week’s Billboard Hot 100, led by “Already Won”, and followed by “Get Ready” ft. Kodak Black (#91), “What’s Wrong” (#93), and single “Time Heals” (#99), which has over 6 million views on its music video. 

SoulFly made a splash on the Billboard 200 chart upon its original release in March, generating over 130k sales-equivalent units in its first week and debuting at #1. 14 of the album’s original 19 tracks charted on the Billboard Hot 100, with two songs, “Tombstone” and the Platinum-certified “Street Runner,” peaking in the top 20.

By

Multiplatinum GRAMMY® Award-nominated Washington, D.C. rapper and Glizzy Gang Founder Shy Glizzy has just picked up a platinum plaque for his enduring banger “White Girl.” In order to celebrate this milestone, he unveiled the long-awaited music video for the track—streaming on his official YouTube Channel now.

The black-and-white clip unfolds as a cinematic affair. It brings the lyrics to life as it follows Shy Glizzy past an encounter with a paparazzi and into the arms of a blonde femme fatale. In between seductive vignettes in the bedroom and at the pool, tension builds until the bloody finale ensues. It might just be his most captivating and arresting video to date.

Of course, the track originally adorned his breakout 2014 mixtape, Young Jefe, which introduced his fan favorite series of the same name.

It also continues a prolific streak. He recently dropped “MMY Freestyle” and “Underrated.” He shot the eye-catching video for the latter in Dubai. Moreover, HotNewHipHop hailed “Underrated” as “airy and chilled-out,” and REVOLT plugged the video, “He spends the day cruising the desert in his luxury red whip before heading off to the local markets at night.”

In other big news, his now-legendary collaboration with Goldlink “Crew” [feat. Brent Faiyaz & Shy Glizzy] has gone 6x-platinum!

Pushing forward without apology, Shy Glizzy consistently proves the real is back as he prepares more music for 2023.

Shy Glizzy has redefined, reignited, and reupped the DMV as a stronghold for hip-hop. Along the way, he has gathered over 1 billion streams and shined on the gold-certified “Do You Understand” [feat. Tory Lanez & Gunna] and the platinum-certified “White Girl.” He broke through into the mainstream in a big way with his appearance on Goldlink’s 6x-platinum “Crew” [feat. Brent Faiyaz & Shy Glizzy], earning a GRAMMY® Award nod in the process. Beyond widespread praise from Pitchfork, The FADER, The Washington Post, and more, he received a coveted cosign from Beyoncé who famously bopped along to “Awwsome” at Global Citizen Festival. Not to mention, he also heads up his own Glizzy Gang label as C.E.O. He not only remains a pillar of the DMV, but the culture at large as he kicks off his next era in 2023.

Icewear Vezzo Connects with Jeezy, Gangsta Grillz Tape Out 12/8

Published

A slick-talking Detroit hero who’s steadily upped his ante in recent years, Icewear Vezzo drips with insights into successful street living. Teaming up with a fellow hustler for his latest music video, Vezzo shares “One Time” ft. Jeezy. Complete with the menacing piano lines and ominous bells that characterize many of Vezzo’s most beloved tracks, “One Time” is an anthem dedicated to the trappers and the flexers, with a countdown chorus that demands to be chanted by a crowd: “Three times for the n****s in heaven/Four times for the bad b*tches that’s steppin.” Vezzo and Jeezy are complemented by the energetic ad-libs of the legendary DJ Drama, who also appears in the music video. Directed by Diesel Films, the video finds Vezzo, Jeezy, and Drama relaxing in Vezzo’s native 6 Mile, as they turn up in an abandoned warehouse.

“One Time” hails from Paint The City, the upcoming mixtape by Icewear Vezzo. Hosted by DJ Drama, Paint The City is the latest edition of the DJ’s famous Gangsta Grillz series of tapes. The new video is the second glimpse of the upcoming tape, following God Bless The 6,” a collaboration with his fellow 6 Mile native Babyface Ray. The first full-length to be released since Vezzo signed to Quality Control MusicPaint The City is available everywhere on December 8th.

The upcoming tape arrives at the end of a banner year for the respected Detroit rapper. In July, Vezzo released his acclaimed Rich Off Pints 3, the concluding chapter of Vezzo’s signature mixtape series. Continuing the path set by 2021’s Rich Off Pints and Rich Off Pints 2, which generated a combined 150 million streams across platforms, Rich Off Pints 3 is the product of a man who has been through hell in the pursuit of better days. The tape recently earned praise from Pitchfork, who stated, “His latest project basks in the idea that an album this regionally specific can still have nationwide appeal.” Later in the summer, Vezzo connected with Kodak Black for It’s All On U,” a buzzing single that racked up over 5 million streams on Spotify and 11 million views on YouTube.

Vezzo’s new deal with Quality Control marks the start of an exciting new period of success for the budding superstar. Consistently racking up more than 4 million streams on his catalog per week, Vezzo’s ambitions reach far beyond music, and even beyond the physical realm. The Iced Up Records CEO is a serial entrepreneur, starting his own businesses in fields as diverse as real estate, cannabis, snacks (We Eatin! brand recently dropped Vezzo’s own flavor of chips, called Vezzo Hotz), and jewelry maintenance. Vezzo is on track to be a pioneer in the burgeoning metaverse, with his own VezzoVerse launching soon and a forthcoming line of NFTs.

With limitless ambition and the work ethic to achieve his every desire, it’s only a matter of time before Icewear Vezzo takes over the game.
