PARIS BRYANT — “TRAGEDY”

Rising talent, Paris Bryant, shares the visual for his latest R&B track “Tragedy” today. On the heartsick single the 17-year-old artist shares an R&B approach to his music by tapping into his vocal abilities. He investigates the challenges of a relationship filled with dishonesty, sharing, “Every lie ends in tragedy no matter how you handle it. My song is inspired by past relationships where communication wasn’t something the other partner did.”

The Llama directed video is filled with striking visuals that helps the story come to life—deep tones and roses catching fire, the toxicity becomes apparent as we listen to Paris sing about his loved one causing clear suspicion and deception—watch the video HERE.

Paris Bryant recently made his official debut with his track and video for “Mad Mad,” which now has nearly fifty thousand views. On the song he weaves together thought-provoking bars and show-stopping vocals above a backdrop of acoustic guitar and 808s. The accompanying visual finds him rapping alone around New York in the middle of the night as it captures his palpable charisma on-screen. The track led to quick praise from Triller who spotlighted him as a featured artist as well as recognition from REVOLT, HotNewHipHop, RESPECT and Uproxx who listed the track on their “Best New Hip-Hop This Week” roundup. Soon after he released his second track “Proud Of You” which features fellow New York rapper, Jay Gwaupo and most recently “Demon Time” which has over 131k views and led to HNHH to praised the track as a “fun follow-up for Bryant and yet another example of his ability to make catchy tracks.” The budding talent is quickly on his way upward as he continues to assert himself song after song.

BIG BRATT – FIRST CLASS

Today, rising Chattanooga-bred rapper Big Bratt releases “First Class,” an energetic new single powered by crushing bass, rapid-fire flexes, and irrepressible attitude. The track arrives with accompanying video, watch above or listen at all digital retailers here.

Over a minimal, speaker-rattling instrumental, Bratt serves up confident bars about her approach to romance. “Told him he can be my trick, but he can’t be my man,” she raps in her deep Southern drawl, “Every time I leave a nigga, make him go insane.” Elsewhere, she dives into some casual flexing, flaunting her knack for stacking money and detailing the life of luxury that’s resulted from her success. “I’m in first class with my feet up,” she raps on the infectious chorus.

 

With hard-hitting bars and a memorable hook, “First Class” is further proof that Big Bratt is well on her way to big things. This new song arrives just over a month after the Cinematic Music Group rapper’s “Paid in Full,” a song and video made in the spirit of the 2002 film of the same name. In the video, she plays her own version of the movie’s kingpin protagonist while still making time to hit up the basketball court and kick it with her crew. It’s a visual that is rooted deeply in hip-hop culture and it demands you pay attention, something plenty of new listeners are starting to do with every Big Bratt release. 

 

This recent run of singles, which started with the reflective 2020 track “Rich Rollxn,” shows off why she’s caught the attention of critics and tastemakers — DJ BOOTH has already identified her as one of “10 rappers you should know right now.” With the fierce charisma and natural dexterity on display on songs like “First Class,” Bratt seems poised to continue making noise throughout the rest of 2021 and beyond. 

 

About Big Bratt: 

Raised on Southern hip-hop legends like Boosie and 8Ball & MJG, Bratt stepped into the studio for the first time as a little girl. During her high school years, she learned how to make beats and started sharing her remixes on social media, and soon began putting her fierce work ethic to the test. “Before I got my vehicle I was always catching the bus or getting an Uber to Nashville from three hours away,” says Bratt. “It was hard but I didn’t care what it took; I just knew I needed to get to the studio.”

 

Now at work on her debut project, Bratt has teamed up with producers like Bankroll Got It (Stunna 4 Vegas, Smokepurpp, Lil Pump) to further develop her sound. “The whole goal of this project is to be motivational,” she says. “I want all the females my age to know they deserve more, but they can’t be lazy or depend on anybody else to make it happen. It’s time to go get it on their own.”

After racking up millions of views and streams independently and attracting cosigns from the likes of Young Thug, Gucci Mane, and more, viral rap phenomenon Li Heat unleashes his new mixtape, Heatin Up. Along with the full project, an official video for “Victim” with Li Heat and Big 30 is out now. The Niles Bryant directed visual is a high-energy showcase of the duo’s combined lyrical skills.

The project showcases his growth as a red-hot artist-to-watch. Among multiple bangers, it boasts his breakout anthem “007,” which has amassed over 5 million YouTube views on its official music video and north of 1 million streams.

Additionally, Heatin Up flaunts fan favorites such as the wild “Young & Turnt” and his most recent drop “Intro.” Elsewhere on the project, he leans into airy keys on the proud Alabama anthem “Crimson Tide” [feat. Big Yayo] where he namechecks Crimson Tide heroes like DeVonta Smith. Everything concludes on “Bows” [feat. Manny Major]. He and Manny Major launch a lyrical crossfire accelerated by rapid fire cadences and tense production. With no shortage of rambunctious delivery, trap-flavored energy, and Alabama grit, it illuminates his rhyme prowess and cements him as a force to be reckoned with.

About Li Heat

Hailing from Birmingham, AL, Li Heat is the latest viral rap phenomenon poised to take over the industry’s new wave. Heat originally gained notoriety for his track “007”, an instant viral success and his biggest single to date. The rambunctious, trap-flavored, warm tune has now amassed more than two million views since uploaded to YouTube on May 27. The song’s simple, yet catchy setup has made fans out of everyone, including Young Thug and Gucci Mane (who he’s since collaborated with). 

Li Heat’s style is catchy, bare-bones, and instantly memorable. He lists his inspirations as NoCap, Rylo Rodriguez, Tee Grizzley, Luh Soldier, and Lil Baby, incorporating traces of their influences into his rap style in a way that boldly creates its own, unique niche in rap’s crowded culture. It’s both familiar and yet different enough to make you intrigued. Now with the release of his debut project, which traces his growth as a musician, the Alabama-bred lyricist is on the verge of dominating the airwaves after only being in the industry for less than a year.

Paris Bryant Releases New Single: “Mad Mad”

Watch the music video HERE.

Distinguishing himself right out of the gate, the 17-year-old budding talent transmits positive messages over organic production. On Mad Mad, he weaves together thought-provoking bars and show-stopping vocals above a backdrop of acoustic guitar and 808s. The accompanying visual finds him rapping alone around New York in the middle of the night as it captures his palpable charisma on-screen.

About the song, he commented, “For me, I consider music a gift from God. I let the words flow out. They rhyme and come together as a story. If you listen to ‘Mad Mad, you can get a gist of what I really do with the rapping and the singing. Lowkey, I’m showing my versatility.”

That versatility defines “Mad Mad” and much more music to come. Stay tuned for more of Paris Bryant.

About Paris Bryant

At only 17-years-old, Paris Bryant already recognizes the power of a positive perspective against adversity. The Maryland-born and Brooklyn-based rapper spreads light through culture with an uplifting message lifted even higher by verbal gymnastics and soaring melodies. Despite a turbulent childhood, he embraced this outlook early on. As classmates drummed out beats on the lunch table, he developed his wordplay in real time during grade school. By nine years old, he picked up a guitar before eventually learning keyboard. Music offered some stability as he bounced back and forth between living with his mom and dad. Following his mother’s second five-year incarceration, he moved to The Bronx with his grandmother at the age of twelve. New York felt like a culture shock as he dealt with bullying due to his southern accent and thrifted clothes. He pursued music even harder, launching his own music club in high school and uploading early ideas online. Recorded after hours at his local church, he posted “Blessed” on SoundCloud and kicked off his career. “Heartbreak” gained real traction as his material made it into the hands of Cinematic Music Group who signed him in 2021. In 2021, his energy shines on a series of singles for Cinematic Music Group/Geffen Records with more to come.

About Brokeasf

Brokeasf is an 18-year-old rapper who has stayed down and true to himself, unapologetically making music with no regrets. At a young age, the newcomer understood the darker side of life. Born with a twin sister, he grew up with a total of seven siblings. His dad did two years in jail before coming home, and his mom tirelessly worked in a warehouse. She often played the likes of Lil Wayne and Gucci Mane around the house which is how Broke was introduced to rap.

At only 14-years-old, he and his twin endured a horrific drive-by. His sister got shot in the leg and would be released from the hospital the same night while Broke wasn’t so lucky. He suffered shots to the stomach, chest, and arm, and spent a month in the hospital recovering which made him realize quickly how painful life could be. In the face of adversity, we either give up or push harder. Brokeasf chose to push harder. Last year he began spitting on Instagram and built up a following for fierce, focused, and fiery freestyles. He engaged an active fanbase, “people knew me from the streets, so my posts would get a lot of shares.” Brokeasf ignited 2020 with the single “Comments” which went on to generate over 4.3 million total streams and counting in the US alone as well sparked a trend on TikTok with nearly 300 thousand creates on the platform.

Brokeasf will continue to push this year by sharing his story and music with his fans – “I want it to be up-tempo and make you shake your head. I didn’t go through all of this not to enjoy it. I could’ve been a victim to this, but I’m not. I’m young. I’m intelligent. I feel like I got no flaws. That’s who the fuck I am.”
