Jay Gwuapo – Bassline

21-year-old Brooklyn drill rapper Jay Gwuapo returns with track and video: “Bassline” via From Nothing Records/Polo Grounds Music/RCA Records. The visual shows Gwuapo in the tropics with friends living it up and beautiful women while the track’s hypnotic beats play.

Watch “Bassline” HERE.

Last year Jay Gwuapo was on the track, “Proud of You” with Paris Bryant, and in 2020 he released “Black Mask” ft. Pop Smoke, which is special to the rising rapper as the late Pop Smoke was one of his best childhood friends. “Intro,” “Smoke Season Freestyle” and “Dangerous” were additional tracks Gwuapo released, and together, these four tracks honored and paid tribute to Pop as well as KJ Balla. KJ Balla was a frequent collaborator, labelmate, and friend of Jay Gwuapo‘s that was tragically killed. Other recent releases include “Lost Files,” “R8” and “Back to Back” with KJ Balla,  “Long Live The Woo,” a tribute to Pop following his death, and a feature on Lil Tjay’s album with “Gettin Lit.”

Jay Gwuapo is officially back–stay tuned for more music coming soon.

About Jay Gwuapo

Brooklyn’s long been a hotbed for the latest and greatest in rap talent, and Jay Gwuapo is the borough’s next rising star in the drill scene. The East New York native is just 21 years old, having picked up rap as a career two years ago—but he’s already making moves that artists with years on him have yet to accomplish. With a series of buzz-generating street singles and a debut mixtape under his belt, Gwuapo’s talent and hybridized musical style will surely only gain more recognition to come.

Gwuapo started pursuing rap in earnest, pumping out unreleased tracks that started making noise in the NYC rap scene and eventually teaming up with Russ and KJ Balla’s From Nothing record label. “Downbad” from 2018 marked his proper debut single, featuring chilly production and Gwuapo’s now-trademarked “R&B-drill” sound. Then came the languid, melodic “Drip Sauce,” a collab with fellow Brooklynite KJ Balla.

Since then, Gwuapo’s dropped a few more choice tracks, including “Steppin’ Out” and the grim, serious “Well Explained”. Eventually, word got around to star-making label Polo Grounds Music, whose B. Jacques took particular interest in helping Gwuapo take his career and talent to the next level. “A lot of people were reaching out, but no one connected with me like my son B,” he enthuses. “The love felt different from what I felt from nobody else.”In 2019, Gwuapo announced his signing to Polo Grounds Music/RCA Records and released his debut project, From Nothing Pt. 1 which featured collaborations with label mate Calboy as well as Lil Tjay, Don Q, and KJ Balla.

Muni Long – Hrs and Hrs

Leauxfi‘s The TEN Music Group just earned the #1 R&B single in the country by producing Muni Long‘s “Hrs and Hrs” for her 2021 album, Public Displays of Affection. 

On the track, a steady bassline sets the tone for sultry instrumentals to shine as Muni Long’s angelic voice details a longing and passionate love. The single builds momentum as Muni brings the heat, breaking into a vibrant refrain of “A love like ours, I prayed for it on my knees every night for some hours and hours and hours.”

“Hrs and Hrs” was co-produced by TEN Music Group member Dylan Graham and rising producer Ralph Tiller. The 29-year-old Graham originally hails from Ontario, Canada, but he currently resides in Orlando. He has notably cooked up and composed samples for the last five years and produced the melodies for the track. It also marks the first beat placement for Tiller. He calls Tunisia home, and he started producing seven years ago.

Of the process behind this banger, Tiller states: I got the pack from Dylan. After laying the drums, I made the first version and a second version. The second version is the one that ended up on YouTube, and it had 1 million plays over the course of 8 months until she found it. After a month of the record being out, I saw the song taking off on TikTok. I saw Muni’s Instagram and YouTube, and I knew this record was special. It was getting bigger and bigger every day, every time I looked at it. I received a call from her at that point to handle the business side. We were all so excited! The challenge really took off and it was so crazy to see. We’re all super excited to see where this goes.”

The TEN Music Group is a collective of talented producers all at the launching point of their careers. They’ve already had high-profile placements on tracks for artists such as Lil TJay, Yung Bans, Boosie Badazz, and more.

Stay tuned for even more to come from this talented group of producers and artists.

Herbo × Cold World

Today, chart-topping phenom and platinum-selling artist Herbo unveils the music video for his latest single “Cold World” [feat. Yosohn]. Watch it HERE. It remains a standout from his chart-topping fourth full-length offering, 25, available HERE.

The intense visual intercuts surreal imagery with moments of raw intensity. Herbo raps to the camera from a barber’s chair and behind a diamond-encrusted mask often flanked by a giant ice sculpture of the title, 25. The clip captures the caustic nature of the track as he cuts through the production with one lyrical incision after another. For as ominous as it may be, it notably boasts what may be the most special guest of his entire career his son Yosohn.

25 recently crashed the Top 5 of the Billboard Top 200. It not only became his second straight bow in the Top 10 of the chart, but it also emerged as his highest debut yet. It has amassed over 182 million streams and earned widespread praise. Starring on its latest cover, KAZI Magazine went as far as to christen him “Chicago’s Street Rap Messiah”  and HYPEBEAST dubbed it, “Arguably the rapper’s most vulnerable record to date.”

Herbo opens up like never before on the record. Complex hailed it as “a confessional album that opens a window into his world at the quarter-century mark.” His raps rip deeper, while the hooks hit harder than ever. He’s delivered a project that speaks to the struggles of the Windy City and this generation while showing it’s possible to build an empire.

As such, Herbo has assembled his biggest, boldest, and the best body of work to date with 25. Among these 19 tracks, he recruited a cohort of A-list collaborators, including Polo G and Lil Tjay on “Cry No More,” 21 Savage on “T.O.P.”, and The Kid LAROI and Gunna on “You Can’t.” Through and through, his authoritative flows, incisive choruses, and raw heart shine.

He bulldozed a path for the project earlier this year with “Break Yoself,” and “Really Like That.” The FADER attested, “The tracks feel like siblings with their gunmetal-black sounds and visions of violence and wealth, though I can imagine turning up to Really Like That.” Plus, 25 boasts the fan-favorite “Statement,” nearing 10 million streams.

G Herbo is back, and he’s ready to flip the game upside down once and for all on 25. Merch including T-Shirts, Hoodies, and CD’s are available to shop HERE.
