Rot Ken Rides “Solo” in Latest Video from ‘Yahweh Child’

Published

on

Weaving razor sharp melodies through instrumental pockets with visceral urgency, Rot Ken rhymes like a man on a mission. Returning to prove his singular status, the Augusta, GA native shares his new video for “Solo.” Skating atop an entrancing instrumental by Neeko Baby, 1st Class, and LAXX, Ken delivers a mosaic of inventive flows into the night sky from a balcony in the Krazy Visuals-directed video, as he dissects what it means to be the chosen one: “He say his life get hard, I told that boy go and talk to God/Yeah, I made it out the yard, I call myself the Yahweh Child.”

“Solo” is the latest video from Ken’s new project, Yahweh Child, arriving on the heels of “Never Too Rich,” released earlier this month. Signed to a joint venture with Taz Taylor‘s Internet Money and JetsonMade‘s BoyMeetSpace, Rot Ken has earned the co-sign of two of the industry’s top producers, who trust him to annihilate some of their most invigorating instrumentals. On Yahweh Child, the young rapper demonstrates that their faith is not unfounded, as he rains down triplet flows and searing hooks like manna from heaven. Home to recent singles Mask On,“Heartless,” and “No Mind,” plus a guest spot from Stone Mountain, GA spitfire Yung SinnYahweh Child is available everywhere via BoyMeetSpace / Internet Money / 10K Projects.

Rot Ken made a name for himself in 2022 as one of the Georgia trap scene’s hottest up-and-comers. Yahweh Child is the follow-up to May’s Free Me, a 17-track project that showed his range, and demonstrated his singular ability to cut through immersive production with effervescent flows. The Augusta native’s project featured underground hits like “Baby Choppa” (1.7 million Spotify streams), “Heartbreak Kid” (1.7 million Spotify streams), and “Beautiful,” a collaboration with SoFaygo that racked up over 3.9 million Spotify streams. With additional appearances from Kalan.FrFrHunxho, and 21 Lil Harold, the 17-track Free Me project is available everywhere now.

Focused firmly on the future and with some of the best producers in the game in his corner, there’s no stopping Rot Ken’s rise to the top of the rap game. Stay tuned for much more.

MBNel Shares an Uplifting Message from Overseas in “Don’t Say” Video

Published

Winning fans with his raw honesty and melodic mastery, MBNel plans to rise from the streets of Stockton to the mainstream. Continuing to defy expectations in his upward trajectory from the trenches, MBNel shares “Don’t Say,” his new single and music video. A piano-led anthem with rumbling bass and ethereal vocal samples, “Don’t Say” provides Nel with the opportunity to reflect on how far he’s come, sharing stories from the struggle and contrasting them with his recent success: “Designer clothes for all the times I used to borrow clothes/They tried to set the play, I hit that audible.” In the video, Nel shares dispatches from his global travels–he navigated Amsterdam in a Rolls Royce, and jetted off to the Cayman Island to catch some rays (and some chickens).

His first new song of the New Year, “Don’t Say” arrives on the road to Started In The South, the Stockton, CA native’s next EP. Arriving during a period of sustained growth from Nel, the new EP finds him reflecting on his success and paying homage to the streets that raised him. The “south” in the EP’s title refers to its position at the bottom of the map–Nel started at the bottom, but he’s quickly emerging from his circumstances off the strength of his authentic anthems. Featuring an appearance from OTF standout Doodie LoStarted In The South is coming soon via Muddy Boyz/EMPIRE.

MBNel ended 2022 on a hot streak, releasing songs like the devastating ballad “Fadeaway,” dedicated to the memory of a fan who recently passed away, and Toxic,” a relationship drama and duet with the rising singer Haben. Born and raised in Stockton, a city in Central Cali with a busy rap scene, MBNel built a reputation on the West Coast for his combination of hummable melodies and relatable trench tales. The 25-year-old artist has a loyal following who respond to his naked authenticity, a quality on display on his 2021 project No Hard Feelings. In the wake of last year’s success, Nel is challenging himself artistically, pushing the boundaries of his sound as he continues to express his truth.

Stay tuned for more from MBNel.

SleazyWorld Go Returns With Heater “Robbers & Villains”

Published

2023 is set to be a landmark year for Kansas City’s SleazyWorld Go, who was announced by Spotify as an Artist To Watch in 2023, and last week iHeartRadio announced him as nominee for Best New Hip Hop Artist. Today, he continues his winning streak with the release of “Robbers & Villains,” a tight 2-minute heater about expecting the unexpected, growing up in an environment like he did in Grand Rapids, MI, and then later in Kansas City, MO. He pairs hard-hitting bars with sinister humor, making bangers that have real street wisdom behind them — a skill that Sleazy’s already proven to master on last year’s “Sleazy Flow.” In the video for “Robbers & Villains,” Sleazy takes it back home to Kansas City and mobs around town with his crew, directed by Jerry Production. 

2022 was a huge year for SleazyWorld Go — “Sleazy Flow,” earned him first a co-sign then feature from Lil Baby, his first #1 on Urban Radio, and his first RIAA certified platinum plaque. While “Sleazy Flow,” set Sleazy up for success, he proved he’s here for the long haul on Where The Shooters Be. WTSB has star studded features like Lil Baby, G Herbo, Offset, Rich The Kid, and more, but it also boasts 20 tracks that showcase Sleazy’s versatility. There are hard hitting rap bangers like “Free YSL,” songs for the ladies like “Different,” and he gets sentimental about his success and how far he’s come on “Public Housing.” 

SleazyWorld Go’s rise to stardom began in 2019, following a personal transformation behind bars. The artist whose mom moved his family from Grand Rapids, Michigan, to Kansas City, Missouri, searching for a better life, wanted to move in a positive direction. Music was his method. He began parsing a dynamic range of songs on social media and cultivating a fanbase. Ahead of all that 2023 has in store for him, Sleazy asserts, “I want to keep breaking barriers and doing what hasn’t been done.”
