Rolling Loud NY 2022 Was A Memorable Experience

The 2022 edition of Rolling Loud New York took place over the weekend from Sept. 23 until Sept. 25 at Citi Field in Queens, N.Y. For the music festival’s third return to NYC, this year’s Rolling Loud lineup included a mix of up-and-coming talent and some of the biggest names across the world. Unfortunately, before the festivities could begin, Bronx native Sha Ek, Brooklyn’s 22Gz, and Ron Suno, were removed from the lineup based on a potential for violence even though other drill artists from NYC were still allowed to attend. However, the show must still go on. To kick off day one, Rolling Loud stages were sponsored by Fashion Nova, Dusse, and SNIPES. The main headliners were Queen Nicki Minaj, Playboi Carti, and Chief Keef. We also saw stars like Lil Uzi Vert, G Herbo, Lil Tjay, Sleazy World Go, BIA, Moneybagg Yo, Fivio Foreign, Lola Brooke, and Kali. Day 2 continued with A$AP Rocky, A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie, Lil Baby, GloRilla, Lakeyah Saint JHN, and B-Lovee. The third and final day of the festival saw performers Future, Fat Joe, Pusha T, Benny the Butcher, Soulja Boy, J.I., and others closing out the music event. Here are a …

Platinum-selling Chicago hip-hop rapper G Herbo announced his new album, Survivor’s Remorse, with its lead single “Me, Myself & I” featuring A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie.

Earlier this year, Herbo blessed us with his single “Locked In”, an emotional tribute to this late brother. With two impressive singles thus far, Survivor’s Remorse is gearing up to be another powerful body of work from the Chicago emcee. In less than a year, CMG artist GloRilla has achieved life-changing milestones after the release of her hit single “FNF”. The viral #FNFChallenge on TikTok generated over 32 million views (and counting) on YouTube and resulted in GloRilla’s acclaimed debut on the Billboard Hot 100.

Never Broke Again’s RJAE Links Up with Stunna Gambino for “Like a Ghost”

RJAE came into the music scene in 2016 after being discovered by A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie at the age of 16. Since then, the New Orleans artist has been putting in work overtime and it hasn’t gone unnoticed. He is currently signed to NBA Youngboy’s Never Broke Again label and has racked up over 20 million streams and views thus far. This past week, RJAE debuted his latest single Like A Ghost ft. Stunna Gambino. This is the collaboration we didn’t know we were missing. The ILL Views directed video received 183k views and counting on Youtube thus far. Throughout the video, RJAE is seen in a dark studio with mesmerizing fluorescent light. In an old New York neighborhood, Stunna pulls up with his crew and raps over the melodic beat. In the past, we have seen RJAE’s rap side, but on ‘Like A Ghost’ the rising artist showed his R&B side that the ladies love. Both artists showed out on this record, and we hope they collaborate on more singles moving forward. “Having Stunna on the record was major for me because I had been locked into his sound for a while,” RJAE shared. “To me, he’s one of the …

Behind The Track: Nxrre

Let’s be honest, Drill music is the new sound of New York. Drill originated from Chicago with artists like Chief Keef, Lil Durk, G Herbo, Fredo Santana, and many more. Drill music is greatly influenced by trap music, which emerged in Atlanta, Georgia. Production, flow, and lyrics are key characteristics of drill music. Nxrre from Brooklyn, NY is widely known for creating drill beats for NY artists like B-Lovee, Bizzy Banks, 26AR, Ciggy Blacc, Ronsuno, and many more. What started as a hobby in 2018 turned into a full-blown career in 2019. Nxrre began reaching out to managers and artists until he had the opportunity to work with Smoove’L, Stunna Gambino and Justin Rarri. Staying true to his culture, The rising producer always tries to give his beats a Spanish/Reggaeton type of Bounce. This allows Nxrre to stand out amongst other producers. Even though Nxrre is very known for drill, his catalog is versatile with anything from RnB, reggaeton, trap, melodic, and house music.  “I have a lot on the way I’m not going to lie, but me and JabariontheBeat have a highly anticipated song on the way with Stunna Gambino and NoCap. Me and ShoBeatz have a lot together as …

Premiere: Richie Rozay’s Unites With A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie in “No Love Songs” Video

Up-and-coming artist Richie Rozay and Bronx superstar A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie teamed up on their new single ‘No Love Songs’. The Starr Mazi directed video, premiering below, begins with clips of different news segments about deadly shootings and gun violence occurring in the Bronx. Upon hearing the Lvtto produced track, you may think you’re about to hear a love song, but as the title states, this isn’t your typical love song. Instead, the duo created a song about being from the Bronx, constantly hearing about death, and losing faith in their city. The feeling of experiencing pain, and using drugs as a temporary fix. “I’ma try my best to not make this a love song/Tryna fight depression, I can’t put the drugs down/He dropped out of school, he was interested in cocaine/ Man, they killed that boy and all they shot was one round/ News’ article saying another gang member dead in my city/I’m losing faith like B.I.G. and I’m feeling like I’m Biggie.” The memorable hook mixed with Rozay melodic flow created a passionate record. A Boogie has consigned Rozay in the past and he continues to show his music love. Having the opportunity to feature him on …

I went to Tyla’s house to chill and played him the record. He instantly loved it and immediately wanted to hop on the song,” he explained. “He had a studio set up at his house and I recently learned how to engineer, so I recorded his verse right there on spot!

Can’t Make This Shit Up – [Shaudy Kash]

I just cannot get enough of Shaudy Kash’s music lately, maybe because of where I am in life, unsure of my next direction and pensive over which route is best to choose, or maybe it is the large quantity of Detroit music I have been inundating myself with for well over a year now, but whatever it is, I am certain that Shaudy Kash is perhaps the brightest diamond in the rough in his talent-flush city. His maturity speaks volumes calmly and the large quantity of music he has already released and continued to do not only follows suit with his successful musical peers in the Motor City, but also to his personal dedication to his craft as an artist, a title I don’t give him lightly. He is in our pages today with his latest visual release, the title track to his recent EP, “Can’t Make This Shit Up” which was brought to life by the hands of Big4Boogie who works often with Kash and has amplified his reach greatly with his visuals that capture his laid-back pragmatism well. I am sure that Shaudy Kash has a surplus of music for us in 2022 and I can’t wait to …

B Lovee’s “My Everything”: The Story Behind a Viral Hit and a Legendary Bronx Moment

Characterized by a rapid pace of output, uncontainable energy, a lawless palette of samples to rap on, and the personality of their buzzing section of NYC, the emerging scene of Bronx artists, from B Lovee to Kay Flock, Dougie B, and a host of others, is taking over NYC right now. They’re moving at breakneck speed, and with each passing minute, these artists are becoming more and more inescapable in their home city and beyond. This isn’t just the Bronx and this isn’t just NYC anymore — the scene is making serious waves on a national scale, and B Lovee is one of the names positioned right in the center of it all. Earlier this year, among his rich supply of solo releases and collaborations spread around YouTube, B Lovee released a song called “IYKYK,” turning a Wayne Wonder sample into an instantly memorable track that pushed the Bronx rapper even further into the spotlight around NYC. As the song continued to move and the demand for new B Lovee music only heightened by the day, new music — some officially released and some leaked — rapidly populated the internet. Among the songs leaked was a track called “My Everything,” …

New Balance – [Zouli]

Few artists put out their first song and receive raving reviews mainly just because it usually takes someone new quite some time to practice and perfect their sound before they know exactly what strengths to play to and exploit, but for the rare individual or two, it just seems to be in their blood and come naturally to them. When I was put onto Zouli last week, the homie had nothing but great things to say about him and I knew I had to tap in with his music sooner rather than later. Considering he’s still extremely new to the world of music, I didn’t know what to expect, and after reading his Spotify bio, I definitely felt a lot more acquainted with him. Hailing from Montreal, one of the most under the radar yet talent-filled cities in the entire world, Zouli might only be 20 years old, but he has worked hard to ensure his sound is unique and new, not copying anyone even though he is influenced by talents like Juice WRLD, A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie, and others. Being overwhelmed by the success of his first release, he decided to take a bit of a break and …
