Saucy Santana – I’m Too Much

Rapper and hitmaker Saucy Santana releases his latest single, “I’m Too Much,” out now via RCA Records.

Initially teased to fans during his performance at the 2022 MTV VMAs Pre-Show, “I’m Too Much” is a playful clapback at haters and an ode to being extra. Set to bouncing basslines and a bursting chorus of horns, “I’m Too Much” showcases Santana’s quick-witted lyricism as he boasts his accomplishments with his signature flair.

The release of “I’m Too Much” follows an undeniable winning streak for Santana this past summer, gracing the covers of Teen Vogue, PAPER, V Magazine, and XXL as part of their 2022 Freshman Class list. Supporting Latto on her nationwide 777 Tour and Lizzo for select dates on her Special Tour, Santana also collaborated with Madonna for a special remix of “Material Girl,” which they performed during Pride Month in NYC, in addition to a breakout performance at the 2022 BET Awards Pre-Show

This past June, Santana also released his hit single “Booty” featuring Latto, which earned critical praise from The New York Times, Rolling Stone, NPR, and more.

City Girls heating up the summer and charts via 360 MAGAZINE

CITY GIRLS × USHER

Heating up summer to a boiling point, Miami’s own multiplatinum duo City Girls return with a brand new single and music video entitled “Good Love” [feat. Usher] via Quality Control Music / Motown Records. Listen to “Good Love” — HERE. Watch the music video — HERE.

The track’s upbeat production kickstarts a head-nodding dancefloor-ready groove. Eight-time GRAMMY Award-winner Usher cruises through with an instantly irresistible promise, “I can freak you ‘til the morning.” Meanwhile, Yung Miami and JT trade slick, seductive, and scorching bars. In the accompanying visual, Usher and the ladies take over a roller rink in true throwback style complete with show-stopping choreography on skates! It might just be the wildest video yet from City Girls.

It arrives on the heels of the fan favorite “Top Notch” [feat. Fivio Foreign]. It has already amassed 3 million Spotify streams and over 7 million YouTube views on the music video. Right out of the gate, it landed major looks. Beyond plugs from The FADER and more, HYPEBAE noted, “Yung Miami and JT demonstrate their flavor,” and HYPEBEAST exclaimed, “On the hard-hitting ‘Top Notch,’ JT and Yung Miami confidently refute rumors and gossip.” NME put it best, “It’s full of the duo’s typical bravado.”

Right now, City Girls are prepping their follow-up to 2020’s City On Lock. The latter graced year-end lists by NPR, Rolling Stone, and Vice, to name a few.

City Girls continue to run the game. JT recently joined forces with Summer Walker for “Ex For A Reason” on Still Over It, generating a staggering 32.2 million Spotify streams and 10 million YouTube views on the music video. Additionally, the album bowed at #1 on the Billboard Top 200.

Most recently from Yung Miami was the lasciviously lusty “Rap Freaks.” It earned widespread acclaim from UPROXX who noted, “Miami rap duo City Girls is already well-known for their raunchy rhymes, but on Yung Miami’s new solo single ‘Rap Freaks,’ she pulls out all the stops.” However, Billboard put it best, “Yung Miami just went there.”

Now, these two are back and ready for their boldest moment yet.

It’s a City Girl Summer.

Director Karam Gill and Lil Baby discuss film Untrapped at Tribeca Film Festival via 360 Magazine

LIL BABY’S UNTRAPPED

Untrapped: The Story of Lil Baby” is the chronological narrative of Dominique Armani Jones, a black horse’s right of passage. Re-invents the American dream for the next generation, operate outside the rule of the general public. Lately, director Karam Gill has been christened by Forbes’ 30 Under 30 and indexed by Variety’s 10 Top Documentary Filmmakers to Watch. He has created a psychological yet visual anthology of the socioeconomic fate of a young black man in America. Recalling the days when Jay-Z moved dope in Marcy, this tale hits a hard chord with the less fortunate – making ends meet with whatever means necessary.

In 2016 the prosperous Quality Control Music imprint catapulted City Girls into the realm of Salt-N-Pepa and the Migos into a stratospheric N.W.A-ish enclave. With their managerial mastery, they signed Cardi B and enlisted him into their brigade. Shortly thereafter, Lil Baby burst into hip-hop celebrity after releasing My Dawg, peaking at 71 on Billboard Hot 100. Widely respected by peers in Atlanta’s West End, the film re-confirmed Lil Baby as one of the most influential in his set.

In short, this tabulated transmission, premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival, portrays a successful drug dealer who has become an endearing father that amassed immeasurable success. Further, 2020 was his breakthrough to become a global star. Lil Baby was the first and only recording artist to achieve double platinum status and tied Prince as well as Paul McCartney for Billboard Hot 100 hits.

Gloomily, the film did not fully explain his rap culture and his flair for fashion, thus taking away the viewer’s affinity for the protagonist of nonfiction. Looks like a series on the verge of whistling out of the kettle.

Lastly, the ceremony ended with a public Q&A and a special performance by Lil Baby.

CITY GIRLS × BILLBOARD

City Girls have done things few female hip-hop duos or groups have managed, and as their momentum continues to rise Billboard magazine chose to recognize them as the face of what’s to break in 2020 as they continue their trail-blazing winning streak and reach new heights.

The duo, comprised of JT and Yung Miami, has become one of the most successful female hip-hop duos in the history of the Billboard charts. Racking up more than 1.3 BILLION streams, a pair of certified-Platinum Top 40 hits, becoming the #6 most played artist on urban radio (with singles “Twerk” and “Act Up” reaching #1 at Urban Radio), and raves from critics world-wide. City Girls will continue to dominate in 2020. They recently released “You Tried It” off their highly anticipated album which is coming soon.  

Ratchet, brilliant, and sometimes both at the same time and sometimes neither at all, these women are showing up and doing the work, wrote The New Yorker. The ascent of the City Girls is one of the most unlikely success stories of the past years, with JT sitting in federal prison in Tallahassee, Fl, turning herself in for fraud in July 2018, the same day Drake’s massive #1 smash “In My Feelings featuring the City Girls was released. Yung Miami held down the group: touring, performing festivals, the BET Awards mainstage and MTV Spring Break, Alexander Wang’s fashion week party, doing interviews and accepting awards as City Girls – and always with a shout-out to her best friend with a heartfelt “Free JT!”

These City Girls would not be derailed nor defeated. With the brash, raw, uncensored swagger rooted in the queens who came before them, the duo released music and videos they had banked knowing JT was turning herself in and kept rising and rising up the charts. The accolades and nominations piled up: 2019 BET Hip Hop Awards Nominations for “Best Hip Hop Video” + Single Of The Year”; 2019 BET Awards Nominations for “Best Group” + “Best New Artist”; BET Social Awards Nomination and Won “Issa Wave” Award; Nominated for Billboard Awards’ Best New Artist.

In September Yung Miami happily announced her pregnancy, showing the world what a working woman was capable of. In October, JT was freed, and the internet exploded, with City Girls holding eight of the top 25 trending topics on twitter – not just trending but trending under eight different topics! (#2 JT FREE; #6 JT HOME; #11 JT IS FREE; #15 JT IS HOME; #16 Caresha; #19 Yung Miami; #20 JT OUT; #23 SO JT). Never ones to rest, City Girls returned that same day with the hard-hitting “JT First Day Out;” The City Girls’ rapper takes aim at her opposition and makes sure they know City Girls are here to dominate hip-hop with the legal mess finally behind her. “Left prison with a pimple, not a scratch,” she raps. 

JT and Yung Miami are uncensored and unapologetic sharing a commitment to their hood roots and a bold insistence that the culture they come from shouldn’t stop them from getting a piece of the cash pie. One of the most provocative female hip-hop duos in years, JT and Yung Miami are trailblazers of the next generation of female who speak out as raw and confident — and with as much swagger as the boys and working twice as hard to be recognized.

Kevin “Coach K” Lee and Pierre “P” Thomas of the renowned Quality Control Music label discovered the girls and took their first song “Fu*k Dat N****” from a regional hit to a national smash when it appeared on the seminal Quality Control Presents: Control The Streets Vol 1 compilation.

CITY GIRLS

The wait is over! Today Yung Miami and JT – together known as City Girls – release their first single together since JT was freed from prison: “You Tried It.” Listen HERE. The internet exploded when JT got out on October 8, 2019, with City Girls holding eight of the top 25 trending topics on twitter – not just trending but trending under eight different topics! (#2 JT FREE; #6 JT HOME; #11 JT IS FREE; #15 JT IS HOME; #16 Caresha; #19 Yung Miami; #20 JT OUT; #23 SO JT). 

Even with JT incarcerated, the girls have racked up 1.2 BILLION streams within two years, with City Girls’ hit records “Act Up” and “Twerk (feat Cardi B)” both RIAA Certified platinum. Separated after JT turned herself in for credit card fraud charges in July, 2018, the same day Drake’s “In My Feelings (featuring City Girls)” was released, Yung Miami has been holding it down: touring, performing, recording videos and features as City Girls. But last month JT was not only released, but Yung Miami pushed out her bundle of joy, Summer. Both got new chains: JT a ‘City Girls’ chain from Miami; Yung Miami a small fries chain celebrating her new small fry – and favorite food – from McDonalds  “YOU B**CHES IN TROUBLE!! MY B**CH [IS] HOME!” Yung Miami tweeted, announcing JT’s freedom. And on her first day out, City Girls released the record “First Day Out,” with JT citing “Stop with all the rumors, and tell your nigga I’m home / And it’s on / Period.” JT and Young Miami are uncensored, unapologetic, sharing a commitment to their hood roots and a bold insistence that the culture they come from shouldn’t stop them from getting a piece of the cash pie. One of the most provocative female hip-hop duos in years, JT and Yung Miami are trailblazers of the next generation of female who speak out as raw and confident — and with as much swagger as the boys.
