BlueBucksClan – Come Again

Los Angeles rap duo BlueBucksClan share the music video for their latest single  “Come Again,” out now via Out The Blue Records. Watch it HERE.

In the visual directed by frequent collaborator Tevo Laron, the duo descend upon Las Vegas as all kinds of antics ensue. The clip intercuts footage of DJ and Jeeezy as they turn up outside, by the pool, in the club, and beyond. Smoked-out Cali keys pulsate in the background as the MCs lock into a quotable lyrical call-and-response before the hard-hitting hook takes hold.

BlueBucksClan just wrapped up the On My Soul Tour with Bino Rideaux. Next up, the guys take the stage at Once Upon A Time In LA Festival on December 18 back home in LA.

Praise for BlueBucksClan

“Since their emergence in 2019, the pair has been busy” — Rolling Stone

“L.A’s best duo.” — Pitchfork

“It’s clear that BlueBucksClan is only getting started” — COMPLEX

“BlueBucksClan have built their own high-speed lane” — Billboard 

“Jeeezy and DJ are all about fashion, women and clever sports references, and their natural sense of humor has garnered attention all over L.A. and beyond” –XXL

About the Duo

BlueBucksClan are driving Los Angeles’ rap renaissance forward slowly, steadily, and mercilessly. Since emerging in 2019, the duo of DJ and Jeeezy have captivated their city with hypnotic beats, mind-melding verbal chemistry, and vivid tales of shutting down the club while draped in designer drip. Together, these lifelong friends who met on the football field are taking the fierce sound of contemporary SoCal Street rap and making it regal, bringing the hood to Beverly Hills. Each new cinematic song affirms that these two men from the rough parts of South L.A. are leveling up, wearing shoes that cost more than your rent and driving foreign cars with beautiful women riding shotgun. Clan Virus 2 is their seventh project in two years. They’ve refined their deadpan punchlines, flamboyant boasts, and charismatic back-and-forth delivery as quickly as they’ve expanded their wardrobes, car collections, and fanbase. In an era where shallow hooks take precedence over bars, BlueBucksClan bring you into their world one clever couplet at a time. With Clan Virus 2, DJ and Jeeezy invite fans into their luxurious universe once more, bringing their city with them on their meteoric rise. In the U.S. alone BlueBucksClan have generated nearly 85 million streams to date.

Blxst and Bino Rideaux × Pop Out

Following the release of their acclaimed summer mixtape, Sixtape 2, rising LA hip-hop artists Blxst and Bino Rideaux drop the music video for their single “Pop Out.” Set in the streets of Los Angeles, the fast-paced visual shows the two South Central artists as they drive through the city, culminating in a late-night party.

“‘Pop Out’ was a good tone to start with because Sixtape 2 was highly anticipated,” says Blxst. “It was kind of a double meaning, speaking to a female but also speaking to our fans.”

“‘Pop Out’ is just a testament to the amount of time it took us to double back for Part 2 as well as coming out of a pandemic,” says Bino Rideaux. “They been waiting on this and we have too. So we had to pop out one time.”

Serving as the highly anticipated sequel to the 2019 release of Sixtape, which helped establish both artists as two of the West Coast’s must-watch talents, the release of Sixtape 2 has been met with both critical and fan acclaim, with over 20 million streams to date. Debuting at #1 on the Billboard Heatseekers Chart and #117 on the Billboard Top 200, the project hit #4 on the Apple iTunes Hip-Hop/Rap Top Albums Chart, as well as #8 on Spotify’s Top 10 Album Debuts Chart in the US. Blxst and Bino celebrated the release with an interactive fan experience hosted by Rotation, Amazon Music’s global Hip-Hop and R&B brand. Inspired by the music video for their hit single “Movie,” both artists were able to give back to their community, providing over 300 free car washes to attendees.

About Blxst

Blxst began his solo music career in Los Angeles in 2015, rapping, singing, writing and producing. From self-editing his videos and artwork to mixing and mastering his sound, he’s been on an unstoppable run, gaining notoriety for his productions and collaborations with Kendrick Lamar, YG, Eric Bellinger, Mustard, G Perico, Mozzy and Kalan.FrFr.

Last year saw the release of his highly anticipated debut EP, No Love Lost, an expansive and emotive collection of music inspired by past relationships and his hometown of Los Angeles. Paired with a four-part cinematic series of videos to bring the project’s overarching narrative to life, its quintessential West Coast vibe received acclaim from fans, press and tastemakers, cited by Pigeons & Planes as “one of the best projects of 2020.” Following this up with his first release of 2021, the two-track project Just For Clarity featuring Drakeo the Ruler and Russ, Blxst has solidified his position as the next must-watch musician out of LA. Receiving praise from Billboard, BET, Complex, Pitchfork and more, in 2021, Blxst was announced as a XXL Freshman Class member and an Amazon Breakthrough artist. This fall also sees Blxst headline his first ever North American tour, which sold out in less than an hour.

About Bino Rideaux

With a one-two punch of laidback flows and hypnotic melodies, Bino Rideaux has quietly shaped the next era of West Coast hip-hop. Growing up in South Central, he crafted his 2015 independent project, Life Is Like A Movie, out of a D.I.Y. studio in his grandmother’s house. Gaining traction around L.A., he co-founded Out The Blue Records and dropped music at a prolific pace. Penned in the wake of his homie KP’s death, “100 Days 100 Nights” caught the attention of the late Nipsey Hussle. He featured on Nipsey’s tracks “Clarity” and “The Field” before they teamed up on the 2017 joint project No Pressure.

As his profile rose, Bino linked with Blxst on Sixtape in 2019 before unleashing his full-length debut, Outside, which boasted appearances by heavyweights such as Ty Dolla $ign, Fredo Bang, Mozzy, and BlueBucksClan. In addition to praise from ComplexLA WeeklyVICE and more, UPROXX named it one of the “100 Best Albums of 2020.” Signing to Def Jam in partnership with Out The Blue, he only perfected his signature style on the likes of “Pride 2 The Side” and “BET” before igniting 2021 with the entrancing guitar-laden trip of “Incredible” [feat. Drakeo The Ruler]. Pegged as one of Rolling Stone’s “Breakthrough 25,” Billboard championed him among “6 LA Rappers to Watch in 2021” and went on to describe him as “the brightest star to emerge from that orbit.” Meanwhile, KAZI christened him “one of the West Coast’s most exciting new talents.

“Bino Rideaux has proven to be a staple West Coast artist over the years”

“L.A. rapper Bino Rideaux has been putting in the work in the area for a while now, earning co-signs from a lot of biggies including the late Nipsey Hussle”

“Bino, as well as Nip, let their bars do the talking.”

About Bino Rideaux

Success is a marathon, not a sprint. Bino Rideaux remembers a time when his dream seemed impossible. “I wanted to prove everybody wrong when nobody believed.” At 27, the Los Angeles rapper is a case study in the hustle, grinding on his own and acquiring cosigns from some of the biggest names on his coast.

Born Brandon Rainey, hip-hop was always on his mind. “It’s something that’s always interested me. I love music. I’ve always been the ‘rap nigga’ in my area.” He briefly lived in South Central as a teenager and remembers that time marked by the lure of the streets as well as hip-hop.

He was influenced by emotive artists like Young Thug and Nas. By 2014, he had a makeshift studio at his grandmother’s house, and that’s when things began to crystalize. “That’s when I started taking shit serious. That’s when it became a thing like, ‘This is where I’m going to be.’”

In 2015, he released Life Is Like A Movie, the first project that received local attention. “That’s the first time I had a team putting a project together. The response to it wasn’t as strong but it made me feel like, something can be done here.”

He signed to Out The Blue Records, an independent label he founded with friends. “It was organic,” he says. “I was doing what I love with my loved ones involved and making everybody in my section proud. I wouldn’t have it any other way.”

The track “100 Days 100 Nights” would be his breakout. “I lost a homie, KP. We made that track because a lot was going in the city. It was basically my hood versus the enemy’s hood.” The track resonated with one fan in particular: Nipsey Hussle.

Bino and Nipsey linked in the studio for “The Field” and “Clarity” in 2016 and 2017, respectively. “We kept rocking ever since.” Bino says that the relationship indelibly changed him. “That’s one of the most major parts that made me “me” today. I feel a lot different than I was prior to meeting bro.” He cites Nipsey’s business acumen and artistic inspiration, in particular. “He laid out the blueprint for me.” With that blueprint in hand, Bino Rideaux is ready to continue what he started. He signed with Def Jam Records in January 2020 and is excited to be a part of its legacy. “I want to be that LA dude that’s on Def Jam. A crazy success story.” He released “Pride 2 the Side,” a tribute to Nipsey, earlier this year and plans to drop two more projects.

He’s not sure how it’ll play out with the uncertainty of the times. He wants to solidify his name as well as build with Out The Blue. “As a label, we want to be a strong staple and almost landmark in the music industry. A household name with no smut and great business.” In that vein, he underscores his relentless approach and visceral sound. “My music is based on feelings. I want you to feel something. That’s really why I do this shit.”

South Central L.A. rapper Bino Rideaux is on his way to becoming West Coast hip-hop’s next essential voice, as he releases “Outside,” his newest mixtape available today via Def Jam Recordings. Bino’s debut Def Jam mixtape builds on the momentum of his first pair of Def Jam single + video releases, “Brand New” featuring Blxst (immortalized in episode two of Bino’s YouTube series, Out The Blue), and “Bet.”

I feel a lot different than I was prior to meeting bro.”  HipHopDX chronicled their fateful meeting in the unforgettable “Bino Rideaux Recalls The Night He Met Nipsey Hussle Via Casey Veggies.”

With the blueprint of Nipsey’s business acumen and artistic inspiration in hand, Bino’s path was set.  He signed with Def Jam in January 2020, and “Pride 2 The Side,” his tribute to Nipsey, dropped in April. The track, LA Weekly wrote, “sees Rideaux genuinely struggling to make sense of Hussle’s death, lines like ‘now he’s lying with a hole in him’ recited with a sense of anguish. It’s particularly poignant, coming at a time when many of us are struggling with the concept of our own mortality.”  Meanwhile, “Brand New” and “Bet” followed within weeks, and “Outside” was put on the Def Jam scheduled to arrive on May 22nd.

Bino, for his part, is promoting his latest projects during the shutdown with a series of safe activations in Los Angeles, for example an interview with Travis Mills at Apple/Beats 1, which has been particularly supportive of Bino’s music. “Real pain, real emotion, and most importantly real stories in this record,” he told Complex. “It’s been a whole year since we lost our brother,” he wrote in the description for the song on SoundCloud. “Shit will never be the same #LLNH FOREVER!”
