Lil Durk – Watch Yo Homie

By Katrina Tiktinsky

Following the groundbreaking success of Just Cause Y’all Waited II, which debuted at number 2 on the Billboard Hot 200 Chart this May, Lil Durk has released an accompanying visual for the album’s acclaimed single “Watch Yo Homie.”

Already at #8 Trending on YouTube, and climbing still, the dynamic music video follows Lil Durk and his friends as they let loose on four wheelers in the suburban countryside. While the lyrics point to caution when it comes to friendships, warning that, for a celebrity, trust is hard to come by, Lil Durk shows his appreciation for his real friends in front of the camera. The artist’s words are stripped back and clear, documenting the isolation of fame. The video takes the opposite approach, piling on saturated colors and joy-filled action. The result is an undeniably gleeful escape.

About Kosa 

When Belizean raised rapper Kosa started out in the music business he didn’t have the money to buy beats, so he learned to make them himself. That DIY approach paid off significantly who’s now also an engineer, producer, and songwriter. With increasing recognition for his sing-jay verses on tracks as “Same Energy,” and the platinum-selling “Si Tu Lo Dejas,” (alongside reggaetón singers Bad Bunny, Farruko and veteran Nicky Jam) coupled with his recent signing to Rich Immigrants/Interscope, Kosa’s advances has firmly placed him as one of Belize’s biggest music exports and rap’s newest favorite.

Kosa’s mother, raised in Long Island, New York, introduced him to hip-hop, which played an important role in shaping his musical direction. He grew up listening to an eclectic selection of Soul II Soul, Slick Rick, 50 Cent, Lil Wayne and more. A jack of all trades, Kosa’s ability to produce and songwrite allowed his hip hop influences to effortlessly blend with the sounds he was group up around like soca, reggae, dancehall and more. The result, a hypnotic blend of melodies and production that seamlessly fits into the current musical landscape.

Markie × Lil Durk

Louisville, KY rapper, Markie, has released a video for his new song, “In My Flesh” ft. Lil Durk, on Interscope Records. Directed by Marc Diamond and shot in Atlanta, check out the video HERE.

“In My Flesh” will feature on Markie’s debut EP, ‘Right My Wrongs,’ out this winter on Interscope Records.

“In My Flesh” is Markie’s third release on Interscope Records since his signing at the start of the year; “Repent,” his debut song, dropped in August and the second single, “Ugly Places” came at the end of September. Markie has been on the road with Roddy Ricch, opening for select dates on the east coast leg of his tour. His last show will be November 22 in Cincinnati, OH at the Roselawn Live.

A 19-year-old rapper with a lifetime of stories to tell, Markie hails from the East End of Louisville, Kentucky—a place that inevitably pours into each song he creates. “Where I come from is the gutter, it’s the trenches,” says Markie. “People have their ideas of what life is like in Louisville, so I wanted to use my music to tell them what’s really going on.” Markie’s forthcoming debut project brings his magnetic charisma and melodic flow to that purposely unfiltered truth-telling.

Markie first discovered his gift with words as a little kid, finding early recognition by winning third place in a statewide short-story contest in sixth grade. Naming Lil Wayne and Boosie Badazz among his longtime influences, he got his start in music at age 18, teaming up with his cousin and recording his first song in a closet studio. He soon caught the ear of local producers, who offered him free studio time at a recording spot in his neighborhood. Before he’d even released any of his songs, Markie landed a management deal and quickly drew the attention of Interscope Records, who signed him in early 2019.

Yung Fume Releases New Single

Today, Payday Records’ South London rapper Yung Fume releases his latest single “Again,” following the release of his last EP Too Much Wave 2 which dropped in August.

“Again” catches the listener’s ear immediately with an ethereal and echoey choral sound in the background, complimented with stand-out deep bass punches. Fume’s flow highlights the intensity of the instrumentals, opening with the line, “I just made some profit, it’s logic, double again”- the song is an ode to the glory that comes with the guts of the music industry.

Between the bass, fast 808’s, and Fume’s tenacious lyrics, this is the classic baller’s anthem. Titling the song “Again” highlights the importance of consistency in the music game, a proclamation that Fume must keep grinding and getting the bag, time and time again.

“It’s about doing something and being able to do it again,” Fume says about the track, “That’s the only reason I do this!” 

Fume has been grinding nonstop over the past three years releasing projects that include his most recent Payday Records debut EP Level Up in March produced by Atlanta hitmaker Zaytoven along with a trailblazing  iOS arcade-style mobile game called ‘Yung Fume Level Up!’ (soundtracked by two songs from the EP “Zone” and “Life I’m Living”), Too Much Wave 2, Too Much WaveNoughts and CrossesNoughts and Crosses 2 and Noughts and Crosses 3, along with his crossover rap/pop banger “Watch me Flex” being remixed by both Tinie Tempah and Wizkid. He recently went viral with an in-studio clip laying down a new track with Chicago rapper, Lil Durk. Also headlining London’s O2 Academy, and major festival performances at Wireless Festival and Shard Fest, he continues to make big strides in the industry as the years progress.
