VIRGINIA RAPPER FNF CHOP CONNECTS WITH STUNNA 4 VEGAS IN NEW TRACK “BEST FRIEND”

Published

on

23-year-old Richmond, VA rapper FNF Chop connects with Stunna 4 Vegas in new single, “Best Friend.” Produced by frequent collaborator Gringo, the two artist provide high-octane energy as they trade bars over a hard-hitting bass instrumental. Listen to “Best Friend” HERE and watch the Domico Phillips directed video HERE.

Last month, Chop released “Make Believe”, a new single that showcased his gritty street bars and unique hard-hitting flow. Additionally towards the end of last year, Chop released “Draw Down.” Produced by Cabell and directed by Domico Phillips, the music video quickly garnered over 320K views on YouTube. Chop was also co-signed by Pharrell on OtherTone twice for his viral hit “Walk Down,” watch HERE & HERE. In one episode Pharrell mentions, “I like is that kid FNF Chop, he got a song called ‘Walk Down,’ man, that sh*t be going so hard.”

Chop learned about his viral hit while behind bars. “I was in here just chillin’,” explains the rapper who was recently released from Virginia’s Richmond City Jail, “All of a sudden, I kept getting new followers.” “Walk Down,” a commanding song Chop had abruptly made in 2019, had exploded on TikTok a year later. The artist browsed the app to find thousands of clips set to his track. Within months, over 100,000 more videos were using the single, generating over one million views. Evident in 2021’s No Exit EP, FNF Chop plans music in the future while insisting that his legal troubles are a thing of the past. “I’m not okay with being okay; I’m not comfortable with being comfortable,” asserts the talented young rapper with a wealth of street wisdom.

Chop’s journey begins in Baltimore, Maryland, where his single mother raised him and his six siblings. Outside the home, the streets were ruthless and violent. Inside, the family battled poverty and spent time at shelters. The FNF acronym is a reminder that Family Never Folds. From early on, music represented a therapeutic escape. “I always struggled with depression, anxiety, and stuff like that. I’d spend time with my headphones in on my CD player and listen to songs and beats and analyze.” By his adolescence, Chop’s mom relocated the family to housing projects in Richmond, Virginia. As he entered manhood, Chop faced pressure to provide. “I came up with a plan to better the situation for my family. I tried to take some of the stress off of my brothers and my mama.” In the early days, Chop took to the streets, leading him to several stints behind bars. While serving time in the mid-2010s, Chop discovered a talent that lay within. “I had nothing to do; I decided that I’d write raps.” Soon, he showed his skills to fellow inmates and friends on the outside. “I never really thought I’d take it farther than that, but then people really responded to my songs.” Chop left jail ready to work.

Published

By

Asserting herself as a breakthrough artist this year, Jamaican-born singer and songwriter Jada Kingdom uncovers a slick, sizzling, and sultry new single and video entitled “Last Night” today via Money Well Spent/Republic Records.

Listen to “Last Night” HERE

A sparse beat trickles underneath her sensual vocals as she confesses, “Last night was crazy, can’t remember it. Her voice moves in waves with the track’s ebb and flow, dipping in and out of dancehall and R&B with a sly hint of pop. In the accompanying visualizer, Jada brings the lyrics to life with a beach side party. 

It stands out as the follow-up to “Dickmatized.” The latter immediately incited critical applause. Brooklyn Vegan touted it among “20 New Rap and R&B Songs Out This Week” and applauded it as “a cool, chilled-out song that’s about exactly what you think it’s about.” Meanwhile, Dancehall Mag summed it up succinctly as “ultra-sexy.

“Dickmatized” arrived on the heels of the international bop “Jungle. Between cracking a million total streams, HotNewHipHop praised its “insights into the trials and tribulations the young singer has endured.” NME put it best, “The singer/songwriter’s tough upbringing means she isn’t afraid to tell it like it is, a mentality that shines through in her blend of salacious dancehall and straight-to-the-point R&B.

Meanwhile, she added multiple dimensions to this banger via official remixes from Skylar MonesR3HAB, and Sham “Sak Pase” Joseph. Continuing to engage her growing worldwide fan base, she also just dropped a sizzling cover of the Amy Winehouse classic “Back To Black. Watch it HERE.

Quavo x Takeoff Present New Single & Music Video “Hotel Lobby”

Published

By

Over the years, Quavo and Takeoff have gone wild once or twice. However, they go wilder than ever on their new single and music video “Hotel Lobby”—available today via Quality Control Music Group/Motown Records.  Quavo and Takeoff reveal a woozy and wobbly banger on a whole different level..

Listen to “Hotel Lobby” HERE and watch the music video for “Hotel Lobby” HERE.

The airy cinematic production and ominous beat set the tone as Quavo and Takeoff trade one intoxicating bar after another. Co-directed by Keemotion and Quavo, the music video serves as an insane homage to the cult classic Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas directed by Terry Gilliam and co-starring Johnny Depp and Benicio Del Toro. In the clip, Quavo and Takeoff assume the roles of Raoul Duke and Dr. Gonzo cruising through the desert with a “mobile pharmacy” before pulling up to a Las Vegas hotel and barely passing the doors to check in. All kinds of psychedelic, tripped-out trap madness follows as they deliver the South’s first proper hip-hop homage to the late Hunter S. Thompson. It’s unlike anything either of these two multiplatinum GRAMMY® Award-nominated superstars have done either solo or as part of Migos!

It also paves the way for more music to come.

Takeoff recently dropped off “Crypto” with Rich The Kid. It has already amassed over 6.5 million Spotify streams and 4.7 million YouTube views on the music video. Receiving critical acclaim, HYPEBEAST proclaimed, “the new single sees the Migos rapper embrace his love for cryptocurrency and the fortune that it has brought him.

Meanwhile, Quavo served up the intense “Shooters Inside My Crib.” It posted up 6 million Spotify streams and 6.6 million YouTube views on the music video. Touted among the “Soundsystem 50, High Snobiety observed, Quavo skates over the Ayo-B-produced beat effortlessly teasing us about an upcoming project.” REVOLT added, ‘Shooters Inside My Crib’ sees the North Atlanta star harmonizing about past struggles and current successes.” Sports Illustrated summed it up best as “an absolute banger.” Not to mention, he joined NBA2K22 as a playable character and will star in a new action thriller Takeover.

Be on the lookout for more soon!
