The track strikes a sweet spot between reggae and dancehall spiked with a touch of American drill while the lyrics reveal the depths of Jada’s songwriting. Rowdy horns pipe up as she dips in and out of confessional verses inflected by island flavor. The accompanying visual-only just begins to tell her story as it showcases her eye-popping style and raw energy.  

About the release, Jada shared, “”Jungle” is an up-close and personal look into what growing up in Jamaica was for me. Most of the things I speak about in the song lyrics and that you see in the video are actually real-life situations that I’ve seen and or been a victim of.”

The song sets the stage for much more music to come from Jada Kingdom

T-Rell Pops Up On “Fake Smiles”

Published

By

Hailing from Topeka, Kansas, T-Rell has built a faithful fanbase and racked up millions of views with emotional storytelling and soul-baring honesty. Diving into the painful subject of infidelity, T-Rell shares “Fake Smiles,” his new video. T-Rell sings his heart out in his signature style, blending rhythmic rap with resonant R&B as he tries to smile through the pain of his deteriorating relationship: “I be givin’ fake smiles cause I don’t wanna lose you / I gotta hide my pain / Inside I’m breaking down cause this hurt is on my mind.” 

In the video, Rell tells a story of a toxic relationship, filled with adultery and deceit, provoking him to mask his real feelings around his partner. After walking in on his partner cheating on him, T-Rell retreats to his car for a moment of privacy where he can let it all out. Vulnerable and compassionate, “Fake Smiles” is the seventh track off of 2 Big 2 Ignore, Rell’s latest album, which peaked at #1 on the iTunes sales chart upon release this past September.

Doing double duty as a treat for loyal listeners and a solid entry point for new listeners, 2 Big 2 Ignore supplements the emotional anthems for which he’s known with hard-nosed street tales and bangers for the club, like the recent single “Slide” ft. Fredo Bang. With his new album, T-Rell takes aim at those who doubted him, delivering a 16-track opus that loudly announces his status as a force to be reckoned with in the midwest and beyond. Though it doesn’t shy away from the pain music that T-Rell made his name on, as it pays tribute to Rell’s late friends like his manager 8-Ball and his close friend Mo3, the album leaves plenty of room for pleasure as well. Featuring appearances from Jackboy on the recent video  “Fly Away,”Young DroBigga Rankin, and more, 2 Big 2 Ignore is available everywhere via TRM / Winners Only / EMPIRE.

Determined to become a successful artist since he was a kid, T-Rell grew up loving rap and R&B, idolizing artists as disparate as Tyrese, Jamie Foxx, and Lil Boosie. His life changed forever after a catastrophic car accident that claimed the life of his brother and manager 8-Ball, an incident which inspired him to release My Dawg,” a massive regional hit and trickled into the national consciousness, eventually spawning a remix with Boosie and becoming part of the standard repertoire at memorial services. Five years later, T-Rell hasn’t slowed down one bit. He released the album Rell Play earlier in 2021, and it quickly climbed to #1 on the iTunes R&B/Soul chart, #6 on the iTunes All Genres chart, and #69 on the Apple Music charts. T-Rell told his story his own way in “2 Big 2 Ignore,” a new mini-documentary that explores the artist’s unlikely rise and his history of altruism in his city and beyond.

ROC NATION ARTIST BOBBY FISHSCALE TEAMS UP WITH MOZZY AND INK FOR NEW SINGLE RELEASE “OWN EYES”

Published

on

By

Florida hip-hop artist Bobby Fishscale dropped his newest single release, “Own Eyes” featuring Mozzy and Ink. The new track,which premiered on both BET Jams and BET Hip Hop at 12 AM EST, features nostalgic vocals from singer-songwriter Ink interlaced with Bobby’s swift bars woven into each verse. 

The accompanying music video, directed by Ben Marc, blends visuals set in an abandoned warehouse, to a nicotine laced living room, before panning in on a young mother spotted with her newborn. Fans are also swept up in captivating shots of each actor’s eyes as the music video transitions from scene to scene. The “Own Eyes” track tells the stories of coming up from a troubled young adulthood. The track forces listeners to reflect on realities many underserved communities face that typically go unnoticed – from dealing with a mother’s visitation getting denied to splitting a meager meal just to stay fed. 

You can watch the new video for “Own Eyes” HERE and stream the new single HERE via Roc Nation.

“Own eyes to me means to not let others dictate your future,” said Bobby Fishscale. “See it with your own eyes.”  

Own Eyes” falls on the heels of the Roc Nation artist’s recently released track and music video “Role Models” feat Kalan.FrFr which similarly spotlights the deep inequities and challenges Black and Brown communities face everyday, and tells the powerful story of transformative change role models can bring into the picture.  

Hailing from Quincy, Florida, the rising rap music star has been committed to giving back to his community – from his recent visit to local Shank Middle School which culminated in massive school supply donations, to being honored by Mayor Ronte R. Harris himself with a Key to the City this summer. Bobby Fishscale’s growing legacy traverses beyond just the recording industry into entertainment and culture at large. 

Fishscale started making waves with his track “Hov Flow,” that sampled JAY-Z and Eminem’s “Renegade” beat in 2019, which grabbed attention from popular hip-hop platforms and blogs. His debut mixtape – Big Fish – released that same year – stirred a bidding war among record labels that led to his eventual signing to Roc Nation.  

The project was followed by his mixtape, Super Fishy in April 2020 as well as Da Relapse, a 15-track project that included features from Lunch Money, Lil Quez and Yeezy Walker. That same year, Fishscale released his documentary, A Day In The Bricks, giving the audience an in-depth look into the inspiration behind the Quincy native’s trap sound. His hustle and drive earned him the 2020 BMI R&B and Hip Hop Social Star Award, joining the likes of previous winners Mac Miller, Machine Gun Kelly, Zendaya, Joey Bada$$, NLE Choppa and more. His last mixtape, Talapia, dropped in April 2021 and featured appearances from Bigga Rankin, Doe Boy and ATL Jacob.
