NoonieVsEverybody – HOOD CHRONICLES

Cleveland-based rapper NoonieVsEverybody follows up his debut single with a new track entitled “HOOD CHRONICLES”. It marks the 18-year-old’s second released single of his forthcoming mixtape ‘STRICTLY 4 THE VOICELESS’ coming later this year. “HOOD CHRONICLES” dropped exclusively on YouTube on 2/16 which is a nod to his hometown area code in 216 in Cleveland.

“I come from the hood where u gotta strive for yo self and the ones you love. Everything happens in the hood. You get into the most shit there but you gotta love yo roots and the HOOD CHRONICLES,” said NoonieVsEverybody. Click HERE to listen and HERE to watch. 

The story of “HOOD CHRONICLES” carries on the visceral themes of loyalty and exertion in urban Cleveland, Ohio. “Hood baby, I came out from poverty,” the 18-year-old rapper says. The city of Cleveland recapitulates the focal point of NoonieVsEverybody’s nobility and desire to get his family and friends out and away from the grittiness of urban city living. This is the same resoundful energy that will drive a series of forthcoming singles set to release on his 2022 debut mixtape. “HOOD CHRONICLES” is more than rap, it’s a story.

As a point of convergence, NoonieVsEverybody extends beyond his pen and paper in order to divulge into the hardships of everything he goes through while growing up in Cleveland, Ohio. Sticking to the tantamount style of ardent and emotional lyrics, “Hood Chronicles” sets the stage in conscientious detail in order to ally fans and listeners who go through similar situations. This second iteration from the upcoming Cleveland rapper provides harmonizing refuge straight from the heart in hopes to spread a strong and honest message to the hip-hop community.

NoonieVsEverybody will be prepping more music for release later this year along with a documentary series that gives fans an in-depth look at his life.

About NoonieVsEverybody 

The toughest cities mold the toughest champions. NoonieVsEverybody, based in Cleveland, OH, had to learn to grow up fast in a city historically known to be a rough place to be a kid. The hardships throughout NoonieVsEverybody’s younger years activated an intense will inside the 17-year-old rapper to not let anything stop him from achieving his dreams or taking care of his family. His mom worked hard as a home health aid to take care of him, acting as his “mother and father.” She also introduced him to classic hip-hop, and he developed a passion for everyone from Tupac and Jadakiss to Waka Flocka Flame and Gucci Mane. Between regular suspensions from elementary school, he channeled his troubles into raps, filling up small notebooks with songs and ideas as a kid during class, detention, and lunchtime. That same indomitable spirit drives a series of 2021 singles and his forthcoming debut mixtape. A freestyle on Instagram caught the attention of LVRN. He made his official introduction with an appearance on the “LVRN Cypher” Spotify single alongside big-name heavyweights such as 6LACK, Westside Boogie, BRS Kash, and OMB Bloodbath. In the end, NoonieVsEverybody’s words will resound in his hometown and far beyond.

BIG30 – Protest

Fresh off the release of his explosive debut project, BIG30 released his first new music this year with hard-hitting: “Protest”. The track is a dynamic blend of technical skill and steely intensity, mixing percussive flows and 30’s vivid recollections of life. The track, which pays tribute to Pooh Shiesty, 30’s friend and frequent collaborator, comes alongside an official music video that has also been released.

King of Killbranch, released last Fall, marked BIG30‘s most ambitious effort to date. The project solidified him as one of the strongest newcomers of the past year and began his journey to rap dominance. Prior to the project release, he kicked off 2021 with a celebrated feature on Pooh Shiesty‘s RIAA Gold-certified “Neighbors,” which peaked at #51 on the Billboard Hot 100. From there, he completed a trap artist rite of passage by appearing on Gucci Mane‘s “Shit Crazy,” garnering the attention of Complex, Vulture, and other tastemaking outlets in the process. With several standout singles and his debut project at his back, BIG30 is set to make the most of his moment, which is starting to look like it will last a very long time. 

About BIG30

Armed with a blistering delivery, menacing lyrics, and bullet-riddled memories from the Memphis streets, BIG30–the 21-year-old rapper to watch–unloads casual threats and bleak aphorisms with a concussive force that’s beginning to reverberate through the industry. His verse on Pooh Shiesty’s 2021 single “Neighbors” was the shot heard ’round the world, giving 30 his first RIAA Gold certification without even releasing his own project. By the time the duo recorded “Neighbors,” more than two years after they started writing tracks together, BIG30 had refined his flow and arrived more confident than ever. That song peaked at No. 51 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and contributed to the now 116M+ global streams that 30 can claim. Until then, 30 had been watching YouTube views and Facebook shares, not RIAA-certifications, especially since he wasn’t sure if the public was ready for the raw content of his bars. Now, he takes advice from people like 50 Cent and records with the idols he grew up listening to. 30, the father of two children (with another on the way) plans to one day have his own record label and millions to his name. After signing to N-Less/Bread Gang Entertainment, he has the chance to reach the potential his label boss saw in him right away. Now, as he shares his debut project with the world, he’s ready to prove his spot among the many heavyweights who’ve given him their co-sign.

BIG30 × BACK SEAT OF THE ROLLS TRUCK

Rising Memphis rapper BIG30 returns with his relentless new single “Back Seat of the Rolls Truck.” Laced with his cutthroat bars and vivid recollections from his life in the trenches, the track is a reminder of 30’s status as one of street rap’s newest stars. The track is available now at all digital retailers HERE.

On “Back Seat of the Rolls Truck,” BIG30 gives the impression that he’s not into giving warnings. Over ominous trap drums and piano, the 21-year-old flips between reflection and aggression, flaunting grisly wordplay as he unpacks troubling memories. “He thought the shit was sweet, then fell a victim of the glizzy,” he raps. “Free Preston out the feds, they gave him 10 ’cause niggas snitching.” These bars only magnify the steely intensity that BIG30 has been able to capture in all of his best songs over the last few years.

This new single is the latest in a series that’ve raised BIG30’s profile to new heights. He began last month by releasing “Too Official,” an irresistible, Yo Gotti-assisted cut that showcased his evocative, street-level approach at its most compelling height. He followed up that single with “Mista,” a bullet-riddled track that details life in a danger zone. The video for “Too Official” has been streamed over 3.6 million times on YouTube, while “Mista” already has over 2.7 million views.

While he’s been on a steady grind for a few years now, BIG30 began seriously rising after appearing on “Neighbors,” an RIAA Gold-certified Pooh Shiesty song that showcased BIG30’s blunt-force delivery and penchant for vivid lyrics. From there, he completed a trap artist rite of passage by appearing on “Shit Crazy” with Gucci Mane, garnering the attention of Complex, Vulture, and other tastemaking outlets in the process. With “Back Seat of the Rolls Truck” joining a collection of stellar singles already at his back, BIG30’s rise is sure to continue.

BIG30 – MISTA

Rising NLess / Bread Gang Entertainment rapper BIG30 returns with the confrontational new track and video “Mista.” With vivid lyrics, a pummeling beat, and an intense delivery that reflects the gravity of life in the trenches, the song is more evidence that BIG30 is one of the most talented Memphis artists to surface in years.

Over throbbing trap drums and menacing piano, BIG30 slings relentless bars carved from the streets of his native Memphis. He raps about the realities of his life, both the successes he’s already attained and the gunplay it might take to stay at the top. Paired with the icy yet insistent instrumental, BIG30’s lyrics give a sense that there’s always danger lurking around the corner. “Take care of my killers on the daily, get whatever gun/We spin they block for fun,” he raps. Like the best tracks he’s released over the past couple of years, it’s exciting, combative, and intense.

The high octane “Mista” follows early July’s “Too Official,” an infectious single that features a guest spot from Yo Gotti, the reigning king of Memphis trap. That track’s lively video has quickly accumulated more than 2 million views, further building the momentum for BIG30, who’s already had an explosive 2021. While he’s been on a steady grind for a few years now, BIG30 began seriously rising after appearing on “Neighbors,” an RIAA Gold-certified Pooh Shiesty song that showcased BIG30’s blunt-force delivery and penchant for vivid lyrics. From there, he completed a trap artist rite of passage by appearing on “Shit Crazy” with Gucci Mane, garnering the attention of ComplexVulture, and other tastemaking outlets in the process.

With those stellar singles already at his back and new tracks like “Mista” coming out by the day, BIG30’s wild rise is sure to continue across the rest of 2021 and beyond.

Watch Mista now.

About Nicki Minaj
Nicki Minaj has set the tone in music, fashion and beauty for more than a decade – making history and building her superstar personal brand along the way. 
 
Minaj was the first Woman with 100 Billboard Hot 100 Hits, with an astounding 114 entries total to date (the most among female hip-hop acts), two #1 hits, 59 top 40 Hot 100 hits (also a record among female hip-hop acts), and 19 top 10 Hot 100 hits (another record among female hip-hop acts). She also holds the record as a songwriter for the “Most Billboard Hot 100 Entries Among Women in the 2010s.”  Recently, Nicki’s hit “Anaconda” passed 1 billion views on YouTube. She’s the first female rapper to accomplish such a feat on a solo track and now has six music videos with over the billion-view mark. Celebrating its 10th anniversary in 2020, her landmark debut Pink Friday sold over 375,000 copies in its first week, according to MRC Data, – the largest sales week for a female hip-hop artist since Lauryn Hill in 1998. 
 
In addition to music, Minaj has made numerous TV and film appearances, including as a judge on “American Idol” along with film roles in 2014’s “The Other Woman” alongside Kate Upton, Cameron Diaz, and Leslie Mann and 2016’s “Barbershop: The Next Cut.” She’s also done voiceover for “Ice Age: Continental Drift.” What’s more, she’s had high-profile deals with Fendi, Adidas, H&M, Diesel, Mercedes-Benz, Sprint and Pepsi, released a nail polish collection with OPI and was the face of MAC’s Viva Glam campaign. Her branded lipstick, according to Racked, was the brand’s highest-selling Viva Glam lipstick of all-time. Not to mention, she is a co-owner of TIDAL, and her BEATS 1 QUEEN radio show stands out as “the highest-rated show in Apple Music history.
 
After a decade since Pink Friday introduced her to the mainstream, 2020 was another big year for Nicki Minaj with two number ones on the Billboard Hot 100. These achievements further sealed her place in history among the most influential artists ever.
