NBA Meechy Baby – Get in There

Kicking off 2022 with a bang, Meechy Baby unleashes a brand new single and music video entitled “Get in There” via Never Broke Again/Motown. Listen HERE. Watch the music video HERE.

The track hinges on a jaggedly menacing beat fueled by 808s and skittering cymbals as Meechy Baby tears through the production with tenacious verses. It all culminates on a commanding hook, “Get in there.” In the accompanying visual, he turns up next to a luxury SUV as he flows directly into the camera. It hints at his unbridled star power and raw charisma.

He captured the attention of audiences everywhere on last year’s red-hot compilation “Never Broke Again Vol. 1.” Across a stacked track listing, he bodied “Pure Dope” [feat. Rjae & Rojay MLP], “Chippewa,” “Til Da Morning,” “Parking Lot,” and “Cutlass.” Of the latter, HotNewHipHop praised, “Paying ode to the old school car, the rapper brings high energy,” and Rolling Stone noted, “He raps about his lifestyle and his love of the American classic.” He has already amassed over 3 million streams and counting.

However, everything just paves the way for more music from Meechy Baby.

Bhad Bhabie – Miss Understood

From viral sensation to multi-platinum hip-hop phenomenon, 18-year-old Danielle Bregoli (aka Bhad Bhabie) is a true 21st century star, known worldwide for her mischievous flow, razor-sharp wordplay, and unstoppable charisma. With over a billion global streams thus far, the Florida born rapper has emerged as a landmark talent.

Today Bhad Bhabie returns to the music scene with sizzling visuals for her lead single “Miss Understood.” Directed by Tiny Tapes and Orazio and filmed in Los Angeles the high energy video will be featured on her forthcoming EP.

Amidst an aesthetic of neon lights, blurry screens, paparazzi and dollar bills, the video’s opening finds the rapper donning a dominatrix like outfit and welcoming fans into her world to share a story about love, haters and decadence. She says, “the video for Miss Understood has some fire sexy looks and a real intimate feel. It’s definitely a new kind of video for me.”

Co-written by London Jae (Beyonce, Rihanna, Cardi B) and produced by Go Grizzly (Future, Nicki Minaj, Kehlani) the song’s hook “They say I’m trouble, but maybe I’m just misunderstood…” seems apropos for the star who sometimes finds herself in hot water for being so outspoken. This time Bhad Bhabie has channeled all her passionate energy into creating a new more mature sound while continuing to carve out her own niche in the hip hop world. “I’ve definitely evolved with my sound. My new music is less gimmicky, I feel like a lot of my old music was kinda childish. I was young, I was 14 and 15. Now I’m 18 and I’m definitely going to show that I’m more mature with my content and delivery.”

With her increasing catalogue of chart-busting hits, social media triumphs, and seemingly non-stop artistic growth, Bhad Bhabie is unquestionably one of today’s most successful new superstars. She has catapulted herself from a meme to a globally recognized influencer and artist boasting over 1.5 billion global streams. She seamlessly moves between worlds of social justice and sexy, with a massive OnlyFans account and she also made headlines this year speaking out against Turn About Ranch and the “troubled teen industry.”

Having previously collaborated with heavyweights Megan Thee Stallion, Lil Yachty, City Girls and Lil Baby and more. With this new project she hopes with this project her listeners can finally get a feel for who she is as a woman, artist and human being. Whether she’s talking about relationships, finances, breakups or the glow up, Bhad Bhabie is letting her ingenuity manifest itself. It’s the way she speaks, dresses and creates.

TikTok Views Surpass 1.5 Billion

HD4President shared the official video for his breakthrough hit, Touch Down 2 Cause Hell (Bow Bow Bow). View HERE.

I feel like the ‘Touch Down’ video captures the right vision for the song and matches the viral moments from TikTok and social media, says HD4President. And it shows good vibes and fun times, bringing fun back to the music scene.

BRS Kash Releases “Throat Baby Remix Ft. DaBaby & City Girls + “Kash App ft. Mulatto”

Atlanta’s rising star, BRS Kash returns to the spotlight today with the release of “Throat Baby ft. DaBaby and City Girls” and “Kash App ft. Mulatto” via Team Litty/ LVRN/Interscope Records. Both tracks are off his label debut mixtape, KASH ONLY, out tomorrow, January 22. The viral single, “Throat Baby (Go Baby),” initially released last year has helped Kash reach massive heights in his sky-rocketing career. The slick-talking anthem first started to organically grow out of Atlanta’s nightlife and as the rapid success progressed it went on to spark a dance craze on TikTok(nearly a million creates). The sudden rise helped him land spots on Rolling Stone’sBreakthrough 25 and Billboard’s Emerging Artist Chart. Since then, the viral song has achieved RIAA Certified Gold status, and continues to chart Top 10 spot on Urban Radioas well as chart on Billboard’s Hot 100. It also received critical acclaim from XXL, Complex, NPR, Noisey, GQ, and more, as well as recognition from Chris Brown, Trippie Redd, Fredo Bang, amongst others. The rising artist is paving his way to prove he is indeed a force to be reckoned with: “Throat Baby (Go Baby)” has logged nearly 250 million streams globally since its debut in March.

On the remix, LVRN’s newest signee teams up with City Girls and DaBaby to take the hit song to another level as each artist delivers exceptional verses. Together, over the famed poignant piano they elevate the wild bop effortlessly showcasing the groups rambunctious essence. Listen to “Throat Baby (Remix) ft. DaBaby and City Girls” HERE.

On “Kash App” Kash recruits rising rapper, Mulatto. They spit their rapid-fire flows creating a nostalgic sound rooting in early 90’s and 00’s southern rap – quickly we hear their natural chemistry shine through. Of working with Mulatto Kash shares “we have a genuine friendship outside the music, we barely talk about business when we hang we just like having fun living the life we always dreamed of.” The fast-paced beat paired with their blustering yet charming smack-talk radiates an intense energy that will leave you wanting to make a quick trip to the club. Listen to “Kash App ft. Mulatto” HERE.

ABOUT BRS KASH

Rapping since the age of 12, BRS Kash draws inspiration from Southern legends like Juvenile and Big Boi, blending the gangsta drawl of the region’s greats with the charming sensuality of a modern R&B star. As Kash’s career has taken off, the melodically blessed Atlanta rapper has strutted into the spotlight with confidence—a sense that his star is rising and you can either jump on or fall off. His voice is silky-toned, his bars are always diamond-sharp, and he’s hellbent on proving his versatility as a songwriter. Regardless of what topics he touches, BRS Kash does it with a natural ear for hooks and remarkable ease. With each song, he earns that assured swagger, but there’s also something else at work. The man makes moves like he’s fulfilling his destiny. To be sure, rap is in Kash’s blood. Many Atlanta MC’s began freestyling on street corners long before they hit a studio, but few can claim to have been nourished on beats, rhymes, and the creative process while in the womb. His mother once rapped in the girl group Leather & Lace and his motivation is familial too. Kash’s father was incarcerated when he was just 6 years old, and their relationship informs the style and substance of his music. “As a kid I would do everything with him,” the rapper recalls. “For him to just up and leave was traumatizing.” The young Kash vowed to stay away from the streets despite knowing that so many of his local heroes got by on sidewalk hustles before they were famous. Ultimately, though, he found solace, catharsis, and—as “Throat Baby” proves—joy in music. “Music is a way for me to express myself,” he says. “It’s a way for me to vent. It’s a way for me to talk.” And, now, others are listening.
