Blacc Zacc – Dirty Money

The self-anointed 803 Legend Blacc Zacc zips back into the forefront with his truck-rattling anthem “Dirty Money.” In his newest clip directed by Rook, Zacc heads to the Laundromat to show listeners how he and his team clean up money after a long day of work. With washing machines in tow, Zacc takes the proper precaution to ensure his earnings aren’t gone to waste. Zacc’s motor remains intact as he slings punchy bars about his moneymaking efforts, supplied with a slick hook. Watch HERE.  

“Dirty Money” comes on the heels of Zacc’s 2020 album 803 Legend. Released in October 2020, the Carolina Narcos MC tightens his grip on the trap world with his 13-track collection. With features by Kevin Gates, 42 Dugg, Foogiano, Fat Loc, and more, 803 Legend includes a flurry of highlights, ranging from “Tennis” to his bombastic tune “Knew Dat.” 

Since his 11-track debut album Carolina Narcos’ release, Blacc Zacc has emerged from the trenches with his trap-infused raps. Featuring his rap compatriots DaBaby, Moneybagg Yo, Yo Gotti, Stunna 4Vegas, fans have gravitated towards Zacc’s street appeal. The album also boasted production by Young Kio, OG Parker, Romano, and more.

Jordan Ward – Remain Calm

Following the release of his first single, “Lil Baby Crush,” St Louis polymath Jordan Ward unleashes his new EP Remain Calm. The five-track effort proves to be an evocative showcase by the budding singer, who eyes unyielding love and happiness. Established in standout records “Standards” and “Thrive,” Jordan’s buttery vocals and gentle energy are supple enough to keep listeners enthralled for the long run. After a successful trek as an opener on Duckwrth’s ‘A SuperGood Tour’ last month, Remain Calm is the next step in cementing Ward’s leap into stardom. In honor of his new EP, Ward held an intimate release party in Los Angeles to celebrate his journey, where he treated attendees to a live performance.  Listen HERE.

Within the last several years, Jordan Ward has emerged as one of R&B’s rising stars. Developing an affinity for music and dance at a very early age, Jordan polished his skillset after first trying his hand as a choir member before transitioning into musical theatre. His influences include a diverse roster of music luminaries ranging from Marvin Gaye, Donny Hathaway, Stevie Wonder, Lauryn Hill, Kanye West, Tupac, The Notorious B.I.G., Nas, and more. After first experimenting with rap, Ward later focused on singing and dancing. By 18, he moved to Los Angeles and joined Justin Bieber’s Purpose Tour in 2016. Ward’s precocious dance abilities earned him gigs as a dancer for Janet Jackson and Beyonce, as he appeared in the singer’s Homecoming documentary for her epic Coachella performance.

In 2017, Ward began his musical quest after releasing his EP, A Peak at the Summit. It wasn’t until 2019 that Ward’s breakthrough became the talk of R&B. His debut album Valley Hopefuls was propelled by his single “Okok (Hibachi)” and “Sandiego,” which was produced by singer Arin Ray and music producer heavyweight No ID. Now, Ward’s silky croons and elevated songwriting abilities are at peak form as he readies his journey into universal acclaim in the R&B world.

Dreamville’s Lute – Gold Mouf

The project features JID, Saba, BJ The Chicago Kid, Ari Lennox, WESTSIDE Boogie, and More.

After bravely revealing his troubling bout with anxiety in an episode of Gold Mouf Chronicles and nimbly peeling back another layer with his latest single, “Myself,” featuring Charlotte native DEVN, Lute officially announces his debut album Gold Mouf. Slated to drop Oct. 4, Lute recruits a team of formidable lyricists such as JID, WESTSIDE BOOGIE, Saba, and Little Brother. He also teams up with soulful singers BJ The Chicago Kid, Ari Lennox, and DEVN to ultimately bring his vision to life. 

In various conversations with Complex and GQ, Lute openly spoke about his past issues with anxiety. “The way I found out about anxiety was from an infomercial one night,” he recalled in his June conversations with Complex. “I couldn’t sleep, and I was flipping through the channels…and, you know how infomercials come through: ‘Do you have such and such? Are you feeling this way?” 360 Magazine is impressed with this album from Lute as it is his debut album. 

With Gold Mouf Chronicles, Lute discussed how multiple family members also have anxiety and that when he was young, he had open-heart surgery, leaving his future up to fate. While the procedure was successful, he constantly felt like he needed to prove something of himself as he made frequent trips to get tests done on his heart until he was 17. His anxiety still affects him today, before shows, daily interactions with his family and team, and even at home. His anxiety attacks have also occurred in very public moments, most notably during his Dreamville Fest set-in and halftime performance during the Hornets vs. Rockets game in March 2020. After a horrible attack last year, he started taking medication and attending meditation and breathing sessions at a dojo to help cope with his anxiety.

The series features Lute’s 2020 single, “GED (Gettin Every Dolla),” as its opening theme and has become a fan favorite. The Neal Farmer-directed video has now amassed over 1.6 MM views on YouTube. Following its release, Lute stunned fans with a halftime performance during the Hornets vs. Rockets showdown at the Spectrum Center in Charlotte, North Carolina. In 2019, the Charlotte rapper teamed up with label head J. Cole, and hip hop phenom DaBaby for the track, “Under the Sun,” featured on the Grammy-nominated RIAA certified platinum Dreamville album Revenge of the Dreamers III. Lute also kept his hot streak intact last year when he released “Life” and the Madden 21 favorite, “Get It and Go.” Fans can catch the latest episodes of Gold Mouf Chronicles by visiting www.gettineverydolla.com. Next month, Lute will be joining his Dreamville compatriots at the legendary Red Rocks Amphitheater in Denver for the Dreamville On The Rocks concert.

Machine Gun Kelly – papercut

Fresh off his newly minted VMA nomination for “my ex’s best friend,” Machine Gun Kelly embarks on his new journey this week. After announcing his sixth album, born with horns, via a tattoo posted to his social media on Monday, Machine Gun Kelly tapped renowned director Cole Bennett to helm Bennett’s first-ever rock video “papercuts” and the results prove excellent. The video will make its online debut on Cole Bennett’s Lyrical Lemonade Channel. There’s a black and white clip at the start that finds a bald and tattoo-less MGK riding down Sunset Boulevard in a motorcycle with horns. As he continues his expedition as rock’s newest superstar, MGK candidly acknowledges his constant struggles with fame and more. The “papercuts” video made its broadcast premiere on MTV Live, MTVU and the ViacomCBS Times Square billboard.

Watch HERE

MGK’s upcoming album, born with horns, follows his 2020 platinum album, Tickets To My Downfall, which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 and received multiple awards, including an MTV VMA, Billboard Awards for “Top Rock Album” and “Top Rock Artist” and an iHeart Radio Award. Tickets To My Downfall has been called a “game changing record” by Nylon Magazine and W Magazine recently noted “the album’s outstanding commercial success has recalibrated the landscape of the music industry.”  Travis Barker will serve as the project’s executive producer for the second consecutive album.

Last week, MGK delivered a surprise performance at Chicago’s Lollapalooza Festival. There, he performed “my ex’s best friend,” “bloody valentine,” and a cover of Paramore’s “Misery Business” for his ravenous fans. This fall, he will kick off his sold-out Tickets To My Downfall Tour, beginning September 9 in Minneapolis, MN, and concluding December 18 in his hometown of Cleveland, Ohio. So far in 2021, Tickets To My Downfall is the biggest rock album, according to MRC Data.

YSB Tril Shines As Ultimate ‘HOTSHOT’ With New Video

Following the release of his debut mixtape last week, rising rookie YSB Tril (LISTEN TO THE KIDS/Interscope Records) dashes back with his latest visual, “HOTSHOT.” Directed by Nicholas Jandora, Tril’s humor is on full display. Under Jandora’s direction, Tril not only takes a drive with an elderly lady, but he also squeezes time to dunk on a kid and sits in on a therapy session. His penchant for thrill and theatrics continues when he gives his therapist some plastic surgery.

Watch here.

“HOTSHOT” is one of the many swaggering records whipped up by Tril on his 13-track project. Tril has previously garnered success with his previously released singles “AIN’T THE SAME” and “TOUCHDOWN,” featuring Bankrol Hayden as each record amassed over six million streams globally. The former became a popular song in the sports world after the NBA and Toronto Raptors used it before tip-off during the regular season. As part of his mixtape release, Tril performed “ALL DA ACTION” and “HOTSHOT” last week for the Toronto Ultra halftime show. To date, Tril’s HOTSHOT project is over 17 million streams.

So far in his career, the rising rookie showcased his versatility and rock-solid work ethic, amassing his streaming totals to a whopping five million independently. Last year, Tril earned him a performance slot for NBA #2KFest celebration. Tri’s rapid ascension equally enthuses publications. GrungeCake lauded the young hyphenate for his “undeniably catchy, singsongy hook and fast-paced verses” on “Do It Most.” Flaunt Magazine highlighted Tril’s action-packed video “ALL DA ACTION” and dubbed him “a force to be reckoned with.” Lyrical Lemonade applauded Tril for having a “natural and effortless flow you cannot teach.”

Tril also thrives on self-reliance, as he is proven to record his music, film his videos, and even developed a strong connection with his fans on social media. With Roddy Ricch and Juice WRLD serving as influences, YSB’s road to greatness will come sooner than later.

Along with her latest project AZEB, Mereba provided fans live performances of various tracks, including “Rider” and “Aye,” with the latter honoring Juneteenth.

In April, she and Vince Staples interviewed each other for Interview Magazine, as they each spoke candidly on their journeys and life’s directions. She also took part in an enlightening interview/performance for Klipsch Audio’s newest series, Out Loud. There, she performed a unique medley and incorporated her standout record, “Planet U.”

In 2018, Mereba released her first singles through major-label Interscope. A 9th Wonder collaboration titled “Black Truck” marked her official debut that February and was followed by the release of “Planet U,” which she produced herself with co-production from Ayo Olatunji and Sam Hoffman.

Both tracks were included on her groundbreaking debut album The Jungle Is the Only Way Out, which arrived in February 2019 and featured appearances from 6LACK and J.I.D. The acclaimed project earned praise from Vogue, Pitchfork, Billboard, Earmilk, Hypebeast, and Ones to Watch, who noted that “Mereba has pushed the boundaries of R&B and established herself as a voice of the future.” She also appeared on Dreamville’s now-platinum Revenge of the Dreamers III in 2019, which earned her her first Grammy nomination in 2020.
