$tupid Young, Pacman Da Gunman & Young Dopey Shine on Syphon’s “No Shelters”

Published

on

Producer, Engineer, and now Syphon adds artist to his title with the debut of his very first single through his new venture Optimistic Records, featuring South Central Los Angeles heavyweight Pacman da Gunman (Nipsey Hussle’s protegé), $tupid Young, known for his hit track ‘Mando’ (feat. Mozzy) and Inglewood’s very own rap folk hero Young Dopey.

‘No Shelters’, opens up with a gritty, pulsating bassline that sets the tempo of the track, before quickly dropping into Pacman da Gunman’s signature style flow. The verses between Pacman da Gunman and $tupid Young play out like a conversation, back-and-forth discussion that narrates stories of making it in the rap game. It all culminates when Young Dopey closes out his tough as nails verse by shouting out Pacman and Young then letting them know they are welcome in Inglewood.

The trio touch on what it means to keep it real, not forgetting your roots and keeping in check with your own ego even after reaching success. It plays into the cross-cultural heritage of each of the rappers, combining stories from urban life across African-American, Asian and Latino neighborhoods.

Syphon’s high production value is impossible to ignore. While minimally composed with only a few core elements, the track oozes vibe and atmosphere, rounded off with an extremely tight mixdown that punches hard on even the tiniest of sound systems. He called upon Ev9thr33 to assist on production and put the finishing touches on this masterpiece of a track.

“This single means a lot to me as it’s my first single as a producer who’s been behind the scenes for a lot of major artists for a long time.” says Syphon.

Stay tuned as Syphon looks to executive produce and release many more singles as an artist featuring your favorite rappers.

Teenear Samples Brandy’s “The Boy Is Mine” on her Single Release “Ain’t Mine”

Teenear Renee began singing with the praise team of her church in her hometown of Miami, Florida. She later started performing solo at talent shows. 

A version of Rihanna’s “Stay” went over so well that she started a YouTube channel — after her parents’ strong encouragement — to gain wider exposure. Uploads of “Stay” and other covers caught the attention of the Miami-based Slip’N’Slide label, resulting in a recording contract. In 2015, the year she graduated high school, Teenear debuted with “Friday Night,” featuring a guest verse from Sage the Gemini. 

Follow-up “Streetlights‘ ‘ arrived in 2016, followed shortly thereafter by a dancehall-flavored remix with an appearance from labelmate Trina. A handful of additional tracks, including the sparkling Fetty Wap collaboration “Love Me or Leave Me” and the beaming ballad “Need Your Love,” were scattered across 2017 and 2018. 

At the height of the pandemic and social justice with the likes of the George Floyd assualt/murder, Teenear returned to Music with her song “Free” lending her voice and platform to the conversation and activism toward freeing those most affected by police brutality, and racisim. 

The singer, after two years, returns to music full time with her leading single “Ain’t Mine” debuting May 13th 2022. The single samples the living legend Brandys 1998 hit song “the boy is mine” 

Teenear’s label Slip N Slide is excited about this release.

Now, the self-proclaimed “Humble Genius” gifts fans with a surprise release in the form of celebratory Marcus Mayhem-produced song, “Triumphant.” The motivational, horn-driven track finds the Jersey-bred rapper/producer radiating confidence as he spits some boastful rhymes addressing competition and his own resilience.

“I used to make beats in college with my brother..he actually sent me this beat from this producer named Marcus Mayhem and it immediately screamed anthem when I heard it. 

The first thing that came out my mouth was ‘this sound like somethin ****** this sound triumphant.’ I love making motivational music and it seems people love hearing it .. it’s starting to be my lane. Album on the way,” Zombie shares with us.
