Why Rapper AyeCee Is Up Next

Published

on

AyeCee, a Harlem-bred poet, is building a name for himself in the music industry as one of hip hop’s rising stars. The rapper opted to focus his enthusiasm and ability on a music career after pivoting from a career in professional basketball. AyeCee released his debut EP, Badd Choices, Good Stories, in 2021, and it was a project that set the rapper on the way to self-expression and tremendous success.

“​​Once I was done with college, and my dreams of playing professional basketball didn’t work out, I figured I would focus on my other passion–music,” the rapper shared. “Badd Choices, Good Stories is a project inspired by me finally deciding to take music seriously. I wanted to show that I can put together a versatile and different project that is also relevant,” he added.

Every day, over 60,000 new songs are added to streaming services like Spotify. Breaking through the cacophony is difficult for most musicians, but for AyeCee, whose project has received over 200,000 views on Spotify, it’s second nature.

“Right now, my biggest accomplishment is hitting 200,000+ streams on Spotify with Badd Choices, Good Stories, which is also doing well on all streaming platforms,” the Harlem rapper stated. “I also recently shot my first video, “Birdie,” with One Take from Visionary Visions, and it has gotten over 70,000 views on Youtube,” he added. 

While fans like the UK-Drill-inspired sounds of songs like “Birdie,” the rapper has plans for more videos and even bigger projects in the pipeline, according to him.

Houston-based recording artist Dende rides down to “Georgia” with Platinum rapper Deante’ Hitchcock on his newest single. The TX-bred R&B singer showcases his tantalizing ability to seamlessly blend his lyrical skills with his soothing voice. The romantic ballad is Dende’s take on modern-day romanticism while staying true to who he is at his core. The self-proclaimed anime nerd continues to captivate his fan base by creating catchy hooks that boost his music’s replayability. 

“Georgia” is not Dende’s first collaboration with the Dreamville affiliate. Supporters of Dende & Deante’ alike have been begging the two young talents to reconnect musically since “Neck Up” featuring Bairi. Dende’s interesting life path and sense of humor have helped him cultivate a family-style fan base that isn’t afraid to be themselves. Although most R&B acts depend on their mystique, Dende’s vulnerability has helped him become one of the most relatable new upcoming acts in the underground space.

Inspired by indie legends like Chance The Rapper, Dende is excited to build upon the recent momentum of his impressive 2022. The silky-voiced crooner is gearing up for the release of his new EP, Before We Crash, set to arrive soon. Fans of artists like SminoLucky Daye, and Saba will gladly welcome Dende into their playlists.

YSL’s own BSlime releases a new project Love Me Or Don’t. The 15-track effort serves as a re-introduction to the burgeoning Atlanta rapper, made up of a diverse selection of well-composed tracks.

As he establishes himself as an artist, BSlime isn’t here to prove himself to anyone, but rather to simply be himself. About the project, he says “I’m not making music or going through life to “people please”. I’ll never be able to satisfy everyone. People will either love me or not regardless of what I drop and this is the inspiration behind the title.”

Love Me Or Don’t is the latest full length offering from BSlime,which is a direct follow up to his recently released single “Baguette” ft. Persona Jackson. BSlime is coming off of a monumental 2021, which included his features on Young Stoner Life’s #1 Billboard compilation album Slime Language 2 with “Really Be Slime” alongside YNW Melly and FN DaDealer and Young Thug’s acclaimed Punk, with “Peepin out The Window” with Future.
