Young Fairo Just Unleashed New Single “2020 Vision”

Published

on

Self-described as a trap-alternative-hyperpop artist, Young Fairo doesn’t fit into any one lane. That’s characteristic of the whole of Young Fairo’s career— how he goes with his gut, is shaped by his diverse musical influences, and always keeps his listeners guessing. Now 5 years into developing his sound, Young Fairo is releasing another mixtape entitled “Sip In Peace”. His latest drop, “2020 Vision”—a single and the second track off the album—is based on his own experiences, reminiscent of his distinguishable genre-bending, Atlanta trap-influenced style. 4sho Magazine got to chat with the artist about his latest releases, his music, his post-“2020 visions”, and his goals— keep reading below!

Describe your style of music and image. Where does your musical inspiration derive from? 

I’m a laid back playa— a modern day rockstar. My style of music is trap-alternative-hyperpop. I’m a Gemini so I have split personalities. I feel like I’m 5 different artists in one. The diversity is endless— hip-hop, pop, country, rock, and R&B. That’s what makes me different— not many people can do what I do. I’m like your favorite hip-hop artist, pop singer, and country singer all in one. [My musical inspiration is derived from] artists like Ozzy Osbourne, 50 Cent, Young Thug, and Michael Jackson. 

What age and year were you really moved to be involved? How long have you been in the industry, and where are you in your career now?

[I was] 16. I started off in 2015, just playing around in high school. Then once people started telling me I should take it serious, that’s when I began to lock in. [It’s been] 5 years into developing my sound and I feel like I’m an established artist. I’ve been in the industry for 4 years. Now, I want to compete with the big leaguers and have my songs get more notoriety. 

What are your goals— short term and long term?

[My short term goals are to] gain more fans and listeners daily. [My long term goals are to] have a solid fan base and a couple long-lasting records. I’m looking for my brand to become a franchise— to have my fans tune in so when you see them, you’re like, “Yeah, they’re a Fairo fan.” And one day, [I want] to achieve a Grammy.

What are your post-2020 visions? Goals for the next two years?

[I’d like to see] a major improvement from prior years— hopefully gaining a break-out single and a XXL Freshman title for 2022. 

What is one of your favorite highlights/memories from being in the industry?

Being in the studio with Young Thug, Gunna, NAV, and 21 Savage all in one session. 

Who have you worked with and who would you like to work with next?

I’ve worked with my slime Zack Slime Fr and Lil PJ. Next, I want to work with Young Thug, Post Malone, Swae Lee, Lil Gotit, and Milliegolightly.

What advice do you have to youth who want to pursue a career in music?

Never give up, stay working, and keep winning in private. Everyone don’t need to know how you coming. 

When you are not in the studio and/or working, what are some things you enjoy doing?

Traveling or being on the game, locked in on 2k, Madden, or a good story mode game. 

What community events have you contributed to? Why is giving back to the community important?

I’ve given away brand new clothes I couldn’t wear and old clothes I don’t wear anymore to the homeless in Old Fourth Ward. It’s important because your community is a representation of you and where you come from, so if that is well-taken-care-of, so are you. 

Is there a motto or quote that you live by?

The first person to break bread and the last to ask for something in return.

Following the single’s premiere on the NFL Network ‘Sunday Spotlight’ segment earlier this month, So Rebel / AWAL signee Tyler Loyal (@TylerLoyal) unloads the Erikson Corniel (@EriksonCorniel) directed music video for his Sonni (@sonnimade) produced banger “Back In Dat Mode.” Surrounded by his day ones, Tyler rides around the city decked in a winter Supreme coat making it clear he’s officially outside again.

Explaining the song’s central message in a statement to the press, the Beantown native explains:

“I’ve been at my lowest, living off Cup Noodles and cold cut sandwiches. I’ve also been in the presence of financial freedom. Both experiences brought me to the same conclusion, I need to get rich. I made a promise to myself at 8 years old that I would be the one in my family to break the barrier and every day I live on this earth I’m trying to get myself closer to that end goal. This song is for the hustlers. It’s what it feels like to be fed up with your current state, get up and get to the bag.”

Tyler Loyal is a Boston born genre bending artist, songwriter, and producer who holds an air of composure and confidence over every track that he touches. Having a passion for rapping since the age of eight. The Massachusetts native made his debut as a teenager in 2017 with his single “Better Off As Friends“, via SoundCloud, which accumulated 300K+ streams, with barely any promotion. As Tyler continued to develop his craft he would release in the following year his most played song across several platforms “The Bottom“, which helped solidify his buzz as an artist, especially in his local area. 

Consistent work and development continued the following years, and brought more well-received material such as “Enemy” in 2018, before he turned up the heat with several releases in 2019 including “Options,” “Gone For The Summer,” and the Jay Gwuapo featured track “Level Up.” Determined as ever, with more to prove Tyler linked with rapper Jay Critch for his early 2020 single “Hit Me leading into his debut project ‘When You Decide‘ in 2020 and the follow up project ‘Nova‘ in 2021; which featured standout cut “PSYCHO.”

Allison Kane, First Lady of Hip-Rock: The Name & Genre You Need To Know

Published

By

Beauty, brains, talent and clearly on the road to greatness, Allison Kane is currently on tour and possibly coming to a city near you. Who is Allison Kane, you ask? Well, if you don’t know the name, it’s time to get familiar.

The Oklahoma City bombshell is a self-produced singer, songwriter and all-around entertainer. Inspired by the likes of Eminem and Pink, Allison brings an infectious flavor that attracts the masses like a moth to a flame. Crowned by many as the “First Lady of Hip-Rock“, Allison Kane brings a bold and sensual high energy to the stage; her style oozing of a balanced blend of Hip-Hop and Rock. 

Hailing from humble beginnings, Allison realized she was musically talented at the age of 12. She began listening to music from the 70s, 80s and 90s, and writing songs of her own. Music was not only a passion, but an escape from hardships and the bullying Allison would experience by the other kids at school. The bullying hurt, but Allison Kane would not be defined by it. More focused and determined than ever to follow her dreams, Kane went to her school counselor and managed to successfully skip a year of high school and graduate her junior year. She had already been living on her own since the age of 16, when her mom remarried, so she was now ready to fully spread her wings. 

Allison moved to New York with dreams of making it big, under the impression that this would be an easy task. However, life did it’s number, and she quickly found herself out of money and homeless, but she would not accept defeat. Battling depression, waiting tables, hustling for her dreams, Allison could write a book on what it truly takes to climb the ladder to success. It is her consistency even in trying times that afforded her the opportunity to share the stage with the likes of Tay MoneyKodak Black and Kevin Gates; and just a year into going full throttle with her music career, Allison Kane is taking off.

As a buzzing artist on the rise, Allison has amassed over 15 million streams on Spotify in 2022, and we predict her numbers will continue to soar this year. Kane aspires to collab with Cardi B, Taylor Swift, Eminem, Amy Lee and Pink in the future. She prides herself on hard work and consistency, and believes one must trust the process. When people think of Allison Kane, she wants to be remembered as someone who paved the way for others who may be disadvantaged. Three words of advice from Allison Kane, “Never give up!”
