EST GEE — “5500 DEGREES”

Today, EST Gee shared the new music video for his raw and energetic single “5500 Degrees (feat Lil Baby, 42 Dugg and Rylo Rodriguez),” which has become a fan-favorite off the Louisville hip-hop artist’s debut label mixtape, Bigger Than Life Or Death.

On “5500 Degrees,” Gee joins forces with the Baby, Dugg and Rylo to put a fresh twist on Juvenile’s classic “400 Degreez” that was released in 1998. In the visual directed by Diesel Filmz, all 4 artists deliver dynamic bars that showcase their charisma and star power. Watch the video HERE.

It has impressively gathered over 137 million streams globally to date as he continues to average nearly 4 million monthly listeners on Spotify. He also topped Rolling Stone’s Breakthrough 25 Chart and captured No. 1 on Apple’s All Genre chart. Stream Bigger Than Life Or Death HERE.

Rae Rae – “Crash Flow”

Rae Rae, a 17-year-old rapper, songwriter, and self-taught producer, is ready to make his mark in hip-hop with his self-produced single, “Crash Flow (Ain’t Trippin) feat. Taeman.” Watch the new video, via Run-It-Up Records / Motown / CMG, HERE.

The video was directed by Chase Walker and features Rae Rae in his element, driving and drifting down the streets of Atlanta with his friends. The teenagers showcase what southern swag is with their cars, cash, dice, and dance moves.

Rae Rae created this rapidly raw, carefree street banger about having tunnel vision for one’s hustle. It’s about ignoring distractions to succeed. Rae Rae raps “Big bankroll on me and it don’t fold…I’m chasing dinero.”

Not to mention, the record sparked a viral TikTok dance trend. The young artist has already accumulated over 35 million global streams. He’s part of the new generation hip-hop wave filled with artists narrating street stories through their youthful eyes.

Sonically, his flow is melodic, paired over hard-hitting trap beats. Rae Rae has more new music coming down the pipeline.

The Atlanta native dropped out of school to pursue a full-time career in music – backed by the support of his family. As far as musical influences, he cites studying the craft from Future, Jeezy, Rich Homie Quan, and Lil Boosie.

Rae Rae always enjoyed creating music; however, it took on a new meaning for him after one of his best friends, who encouraged Rae Rae’s music endeavors, passed away. With the street record “Crash Flow (Ain’t Trippin) feat. Taeman” as a tenacious introduction, he’s ready to show the world what he’s got.
