Tay Money – The Assignment

Tay Money flexes on a fiery new track entitled “The Assignment”. Fueled by a skittering bounce, Tay eases into her confident and charismatic bars with an announcement, “I understood the assignment”. Ahead of its release, the track has already made its rounds on TikTok with over 280K videos and climbing. 

“The Assignment” is available now at all digital retailers. Listen HERE.

Tay Money upholds her red-hot streak this summer. In July, she made her U.S. major festival debut with a standout set at Rolling Loud Miami, bringing the crowd to its feet. “The Assignment” arrives on the heels of a string of summer anthems including tracks “Shake” and “Asthma Pump” which both feature the unfiltered lyrics and attitude that have made the Dallas artist one to watch. Having been featured on the digital cover of ELEVATOR, and hailed by FLAUNT as “one of the hardest female rappers of our generation,” Tay’s in the midst of a hot streak that stretches back to the release of Blockedt. She made that EP with heavyweights like Derrick Milano (a co-writer on Megan Thee Stallion’s “Hot Girl Summer”) and Bankroll Got It (producers of hits like “DO DAT” by Stunna 4 Vegas featuring DaBaby & Lil Baby)—collaborations that fed into the boundary-pushing energy of her tracks since. “Shake” showcases an exciting new side of Tay’s style, highlighting her ability to craft emotionally stirring songs while still sticking to her favorite topic―flaunting her assets.

About Tay Money

In just over two years, Tay Money, the Athens-born, Dallas-based rapper has racked up millions of views and streams thanks to her witty punchlines and unique musical approach. Her debut song, “Na Na” marked the beginning of her career as an artist and set the tone for the originality that she would bring to the rest of her records to come. Within months of her first release, she was selling out shows in Dallas and had gained a cult-like following among her listeners (now dubbed Tay Army). 

With her bouncy trap beats, unmistakable Texas twang, and unapologetically catchy rhymes, Tay began to reach commercial success with her breakout song “Trapper’s Delight” in 2018. With what was originally a risky move to expand her music outside the limits of her hometown of Dallas, the video for “Trapper’s Delight” amassed over 1.1 million views in under two months. Since then, she’s continued to release many more viral hits including “Bussin” (11 million YouTube views), “Bussin 2.0” with Saweetie (7 million YouTube views), and “Brat” featuring Mulatto, two of which are on her recently released EP, Blockedt. The widely acclaimed project led to many defining moments for Tay, landing spots on coveted playlists including Spotify’s New Music Friday, Feelin Myself, and Release Radar as well as Apple Music’s The Plug and New In Hip Hop. The project also received praise from FLAUNT who hailed her as “one of the biggest women rappers in Texas”, SPIN who noted that she was “one of the biggest women rappers in Texas”, and ELEVATOR who named her their February cover star. Now, with the cosigns of some of the biggest up-and-coming female rappers, and having surpassed the milestone of over 100 million U.S. streams, Tay plans to build on her momentum with her forthcoming EP.

’New Blood’ is one of my favorite records I’ve ever done, says Gryffin on the creation of the track. It is about a special someone coming into your life and allowing you to rediscover your inner self and happiness in life again. Boy Matthews is one of the most talented vocalists I’ve ever worked with. His soul and energy gave this song the euphoric vibes I was looking for. I’m so proud of this record and hope you enjoy it as much as I do. 

2021 has shaped up to be a banner year for Gryffin. In just a month, his most recent single Best Is Yet To Come with Kyle Reynolds has amassed over 14 million total streams and counting between the Original, Max Styler Remix, Cheyenne Giles Remix, and Acoustic version.

24LeftEye – Life of a Henxhman Two

Rising Atlanta rap star 24Lefteye returns with Life of a Henxhman 2, a project that radiates his unaffected, yet inescapable cool. A sequel to 2020’s Life of a Henxhman, the new release includes features from fellow Atlanta standout Benji Blue Bills and more, and it’s laced with colorful production from AR, Falsecut, and 808 Spinz, among others. The project also arrives with a video for the melancholic “Addict.” Watch it HERE

Life of a Henxhman 2 is available at all digital retailers HERE.

Clocking in at 16 songs, Life of a Henxhman 2 is an epic release, full of menacing lyrics and hooks that beg to be repeated. On the Benji Blue Bills-assisted “Let’s Go,” 24Lefteye floats over energetic piano lines as he lets loose quotable wordplay and casual boasts. For “New Opp Pack,” he spits bullet-riddled bars over blown-out bass and frenetic hi-hats. Meanwhile, on “Indict Us” he serves up a half-sung hook that adds kaleidoscopic melody to a project that’s already shown he can do just about everything else. 

24Lefteye is also sharing a video for the ghostly anthem “Addict.” It’s a low-key clip that features him and some friends hanging around outside of a tennis court, slowly rapping along to the gloomy beat. It’s another intimate look at his casual charisma. 

24Lefteye’s latest project reaffirms his status as one of Atlanta’s brightest young talents. On his February project Money on Head Vol. 1, he chronicled his life in the streets of East Atlanta, demonstrating a knack for careful observation and vivid songwriting. While he’s new to the game, his musical intuition and natural proclivity for dynamic songwriting have helped him develop an expansive group of loyal fans. Already backed by tastemaking websites like Lyrical Lemonade and Dirty Glove Bastard, 24Lefteye is just beginning to actualize his powers as an emerging hitmaker. With Life of a Henxhman 2 and months of momentum at his back, 24Lefteye is poised to continue leveling up throughout the rest of 2021 and beyond.

Abby Jasmine – SOS

Abby Jasmine delivered her first music of 2021 with the emotional and reflective “SOS.” The song shows the Staten Island native delving deeper into singing and songwriting with a hazy, harmonic track. The single follows up late 2020’s deluxe edition of Who Cares, Jasmine’s expanded nine-track EP, which featured Guapdad4000, Kash Juliano, and Smoke DZA. Listen to “SOS” by Abby Jasmine HERE

“When I wrote the song, I had this visual of me drowning,” Abby shares. She says she applied the sinking effect to drowning in feelings, addictions, and relationships. This idea inspired a dreamy song that sounds like its title. “I know I got something to say with you; I get tired of saving you,” Abby sings while checking a romantic partner on their behavior. The melody and harmony in the chorus reflect Jasmine’s heavy listening diet of early 2000s R&B. 

About Abby Jasmine

Recording since she was a toddler, Abby Jasmine belongs to a musical family, with a Jazz musician for a father. By her teens, the Staten Island native flexed her music and her strong personality online. She reached millions through Vine, showing aspects of her life intermixed with singing and freestyles. Social media became a launchpad to a music career. In the late 2010s, she released Trap Mom and follow-up EPs: Abbnormal and I Hate You All. Songs like “No Hook” and “Relax” presented a woman with a slick pen, dreamy vocals, and a Big Apple attitude. Both achieved nearly seven figures in streams. Jonny shipes’ Cinematic Music Group signed Abby. By 2020’s sophomore LP Who Cares? Geffen joined in, drawn by the artist who continued to show range. 

Now 23, Abby continues to focus on her craft and be a student of life. “I’ve just been taking time out to self-reflect, spend more time with people that matter to me,” the artist says. After prioritizing herself, Abby Jasmine’s time for reflection eventually returned her to the studio, where Jasmine self-recorded personal and bold music, beginning with “SOS.” Now, with her EP I Hate You 2 on the way and with three major US festivals in her future, the buzzing genre purveyor only continues to prove that she’s someone to pay attention to in 2021.

Hotboii – Oath

Rising Florida rapper Hotboii returns today with another white-hot single, “Oath.” The anthemic track comes on the heels of Hotboii’s thrilling Rolling Loud set, and continues an accomplished year for the Orlando MC. The buzzing young artist has also just surpassed over 450M total streams in yet another career-defining moment.

“Oath” is available now at all digital retailers HERE. Over chest-rattling drums and soaring synth-strings, Hotboii showcases one-of-a-kind bars blessed by buoyant melody. It’s brief, yet triumphant—a two-minute burst of dopamine and bass. At the song’s peak, he sings, “I never get tired of winning,” which based on his recent run of hits sounds like one of the truest lines rapped this year. Most MCs would take a victory lap after going bar-for-bar with FUTURE, as Hotboii did on his last single, “Nobody Special,” but with “Oath,” it’s clear that he isn’t planning on taking his foot off the gas any time soon.

“Oath” continues an undeniable run for Hotboii. These recent singles follow his stunning 2020 releases, which announced his arrival among rap’s elite. After sharing two beloved projects (Kut da Fan On and Double O Baby) last year, Hotboii released the standout “Fuck Shit” in February. Along the way, the MC has racked up praise from tastemaking outlets like Complex, who wrote, “Hotboii can do it all.” In July, he played a standout set at Rolling Loud Miami, a celebratory slot at one of his home state’s most beloved festivals. It was another bright spot in a year that’s shaping up to be even more memorable than the last.

About Hotboii

At just 15 years of age, Hotboii discovered his natural musical talent and began to craft his own verses as an emotional outlet. Hailing from West Orlando, Hotboii is one of the most exciting new rappers to emerge from his hometown’s scene and is poised to take the rest of the world by storm. In early 2020, the cultural hitmaker released his full-length debut project Kut Da Fan On, a powerhouse 17-track album that accumulated millions of streams within the first month of its release.

In December, he released his sophomore effort, Double O Baby which immediately received widespread acclaim from the likes of PITCHFORK, XXL, COMPLEX, and more for the versatility his music. Standout track from the project “Left Lonely” landed him on coveted playlists including Spotify’s “Release Radar” and Apple Music’s “Hip Hop Hits”. With cosigns of major hip hop heavyweights for the vulnerability he expresses throughout his music, Hotboii has officially earned his place as “Florida’s Next Up” as dubbed by COMPLEX. Now at over 240M overall streams and over 130M video views on YouTube, his ascent continues at an exponential rate. Driven by an overwhelming urge to establish himself as a lasting industry heavyweight, Hotboii continues to prove himself as one of the top artists to watch in 2021 and beyond. Now, having recently surpassed over 450M total streams, and with plenty more music to come, Hotboii is cementing himself both as a Sunshine State treasure and a young rapper deserving of a global spotlight.

Tay Money Releases New Single Shake

Dallas MC Tay Money is back today with an energetic new single, “Shake,” continuing a red-hot run for the D-Town darling. Over an infectious, colorful instrumental, Tay spits about some of her favorite hobbies: laughing at her haters and shaking the goods she was given.
“Shake” is available now at all digital retailers. Listen HERE.
This new single finds Tay leaning into a more hypnotic sound, trading in rim-rattling bass for clubby drum rhythms and synth stabs. She stretches out and expresses herself via dizzy bars that feel electric and off-the-cuff. Of course, she’s still quintessentially Tay Money, as she spits a lyric that might as well be the basis of her entire philosophy: “Don’t compare me to nobody ‘cuz bitch I’m one of one.” This new track is further proof that there’s nobody else quite like her.
“Shake” continues a thrilling run for Tay, who dropped summer anthem “Walk” earlier this month. That followed a string of hits, including the hard-hitting “PB&J” and the Flo Milli-assisted “Asthma Pump.” That latter track has been buzzing on TikTok for a while, catching the attention of artists and influencers including Lizzo and Sienna Mae. Tay also released her acclaimed Blockedt set at the end of 2020, and the smash “Work Witcha” back in March.
These latest hits feature the unfiltered lyrics and attitude that have made the Dallas artist one to watch. Having been featured on the digital cover of ELEVATOR, and hailed by FLAUNT as “one of the hardest female rappers of our generation,” Tay’s in the midst of a hot streak that stretches back to the release of Blockedt. She made that EP with heavyweights like Derrick Milano (a co-writer on Megan Thee Stallion’s “Hot Girl Summer”) and Bankroll Got It (producers of hits like “DO DAT” by Stunna 4 Vegas featuring DaBaby & Lil Baby) — collaborations that fed into the boundary-pushing energy of her tracks since. “Shake” showcases an exciting new side of Tay’s style, highlighting her ability to craft emotionally stirring songs while still sticking to her favorite topics―shaking her assets and making more money than her haters.

Jawny – The Story of Hugo

JAWNY RELEASES NEW EP THE STORY OF HUGO TODAY

Vans Channel 66 Livestream Performance Set For July 15 at 6pm PST 

LA-based Singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist JAWNY shares his new project The Story of Hugo out today via Interscope Records. Available now at all digital retailers.  The Story of Hugo features the recently released track Take It Back which The Fader called a dude’s rock anthem-in-waiting, is built around a jacked riff and baggy verses reminiscent of ‘90s Beck.

Fans can see JAWNY perform songs from The Story of Hugo on the Vans’ new livestream network,  Channel 66.  Channel 66 takes Vans Off The Wall & On The Air, broadcasting live weekdays from New York City, Chicago, Mexico City, and Los Angeles.  Programming celebrates the unique creative culture of each city featuring DJ sets, curated radio shows, talks, workshops and performances hosted by Vans friends & family across music, art, action sports and street culture. Tune in at Vans’ website on Thursday, July 15 at 6pm PST to watch JAWNY’s performance.

The Story of Hugo follows JAWNY’s 2020 major-label debut For Abby, a 10-track conceptual project detailing his attempt at reviving a troubled romance. This time around, JAWNY presents the gut-punching prelude to For Abby, approaching each track with equal parts vulnerability and warped imagination. Featuring four songs and two interludes, the result is an up-close portrait of young love gone awry: boy meets girl, boy sabotages everything, girl moves on, boy deeply, deeply regrets it. 

Tracklist for The Story of Hugo EP by JAWNY:

  1. Hugo Is Born
  2. Best Thing
  3. Take It Back
  4. You Should Watch This One
  5. Tombstone Grey
  6. Can Ya

In addition to the July 15 release of The Story of Hugo EP, JAWNY’s 2019 single Honeypie (which was featured on last year’s For Abby)  continues to reach new streaming heights as we enter the summer months. Two years after its initial release, the song’s streams continue to reach new peaks daily and have increased nearly sevenfold year over year globally. Due in part to a recent sync in Netflix’s hit original drama Ginny and Georgia, Shazams for the track are up 33% over the last month as the song continues to grow (now at 337M global streams).

Born Jacob Sullenger, JAWNY grew up outside Oakland, CA and started playing guitar when he was just six-years-old. At age 13 he began making beats with his brother, eventually landing placements with several rappers in the SoundCloud scene of the late-aughts. By 2017 he’d gained a cult-like following thanks in part to a series of viral videos posted on Twitter and earned further buzz in 2018 with a self-titled debut EP made under the name Johnny Utah. In 2019, he broadened his fanbase with widely praised singles like Honeypie and 4Tounce, then landed a deal with Interscope Records by the year’s end. Dubbed a slacker-funk gem by DIY Mag, Honeypie has now amassed over 335 million streams globally across all streaming platforms, while its video has surpassed 25 million views on YouTube. Arriving in October 2020, JAWNY’s major-label debut For Abby drew praise from leading outlets like NME who praised the set as one of lockdown’s most innovative and colourful bedroom pop projects. JAWNY will join the recently announced Lollapalooza lineup performing at Grant Park in Chicago on July 30.

Be on the lookout for more music very soon from Kidd G, and pre-save his upcoming single Summer in a Small Town HERE. 

Along with officially surpassing 100K subscribers on YouTube, Kidd G recently enlisted Lil Uzi Vert for a fun remix of Teenage Dream. The track was an instant hit, gaining recognition from HYPEBEAST, XXL, among others. Kidd G also linked with longtime country music heavyweight Colt Ford to assist with a remix to his viral hit song Down The Road. Both achievements arrive on the heels of Kidd G’s full-length project, Teenage Dream: 1000 Miles from Georgia, the deluxe version of his debut EP, Teenage Dream, a six-track project which features a collision of potent beats and gritty yet melodic guitar work working together on the 18-year-old’s first solid body of work. Throughout the EP, that sound creates a powerful backdrop to the slice-of-life songwriting many fans first discovered on Dirt Road — the October 2020 release that quickly landed on the Billboard Hot Country Songs and amassed 5 million YouTube views in little over a month on the official music video (16M views to date). The Georgia-bred singer/songwriter recently caught the attention of CMT, who hailed his music as earwarming and undeniable, and THE NEW YORK TIMES, who exclusively profiled him earlier this year online and in print.

For more information on Kidd G follow his Instagram, Facebook and TikTok.

ABOUT KIDD G

Growing up in the small Georgia town of Hamilton (population 1,130), Kidd G first found fame online through TikTok and SoundCloud, where he got his start posting songs he’d recorded with his friend Nolie Beats. In spring 2020 he caught the attention of Rebel Music, who signed him on the strength of his genre-warping talents. While early tracks like his debut single Sorry lean toward traditional hip-hop, he later brought an element of old-school country into his songwriting. As he continued posting his music on SoundCloud, Kidd G soon amassed a dedicated following undeniably drawn to his down-home charm and the honest detail of his lyrics. 

As he continued exploring his country roots, Kidd G soon came up with Dirt Road —a nostalgia-soaked ballad that quickly went viral, its video surpassing 5 million YouTube views in little over a month. I love country because it feels so natural to me, and you can really tell stories in the songs, says Kidd G, naming Hank Williams Jr. among the artists he was raised on. Now having surpassed 1.5M monthly Spotify listeners, his tracks have seen radio play from KIXX Country Radio in Australia, and reached new peaks on highly coveted country playlists including Amazon Music’s ‘Country Heat’ (peaked at #2), and Spotify’s ‘Hot Country’ (peaked at #3). Following his new partnership with Big Machine Label Group’s The Valory Music Co., Kidd G is now back in the studio and eager to share all new music that will continue to showcase his unique raw talent.
