BLUEBUCKSCLAN – RAP CITY

BLUEBUCKSCLAN UNLEASH NEW RAP CITY MUSIC VIDEO

“Since their emergence in 2019, the pair has been busy” – Rolling Stone

“LA’s best duo.” –  Pitchfork

“It’s clear that BlueBucksClan is only getting started.COMPLEX

“BlueBucksClan have built their own high-speed lane.” – Billboard

Jeeezy and DJ are all about fashion, women and clever sports references, and their natural sense of humor has garnered attention all over L.A. and beyond.” – XXL

Continuing to heat up the West Coast this summer, Los Angeles rap duo BlueBucksClan drop a punchy new video for their latest lyrical barrage, Rap City, out now via Out The Blue Records. It pops off as another banger from the pair’s latest buzzing mixtape, Clan Virus 2.

Shot on an iPhone by director Tevo Laron, the clip tails BlueBucksClan through the Los Angeles underground. They hit up all the spots as the standard smartphone camera captures them ripping bars while making it rain with their homies. The streets come to life in the visual as they’re proudly “talking crazy in the booth like this Rap City.” It arrives on the heels of the Different Levels music video.

Clan Virus 2 has cemented the duo as a West Coast force to be reckoned with. Inciting widespread critical applause from Rolling Stone and more, FLAUNT Magazine exclaimed, When it comes to who’s running the streets of Los Angeles on the rap tip, look no further than BlueBucksClan and XXL observed, BlueBucksClan‘s movement is going strong as their style and sound evolves.” Earmilk christened them “one of the strongest new acts coming out of the city.” To date, Clan Virus 2 has already gathered over 22 million streams and counting, boasting standouts such as Lil League (feat. Quavo & Hit-Boy). Clan Virus 2 hit No. 9 on the Billboard Heatseekers Albums Chart and they themselves hit No. 16 on Rolling Stone’s Breakthrough 25. Pitchfork called them “L.A.’s best duo,” and HipHopDX wrote that the group was the city’s “hottest new talent.” Complex hailed them “Rappers to Watch in 2021” and Billboard included them on their 6 LA Rappers to Watch in 2021 list.

About BlueBucksClan

BlueBucksClan are driving Los Angeles’ rap renaissance forward slowly, steadily, and mercilessly. Since emerging in 2019, the duo of DJ and Jeeezy have captivated their city with hypnotic beats, mind-melding verbal chemistry, and vivid tales of shutting down the club while draped in designer drip. Together, these lifelong friends who met on the football field are taking the fierce sound of contemporary SoCal Street rap and making it regal, bringing the hood to Beverly Hills. Each new cinematic song affirms that these two men from the rough parts of South L.A. are leveling up, wearing shoes that cost more than your rent and driving foreign cars with beautiful women riding shotgun. Clan Virus 2 is their seventh project in two years. They’ve refined their deadpan punchlines, flamboyant boasts, and charismatic back-and-forth delivery as quickly as they’ve expanded their wardrobes, car collections, and fanbase. In an era where shallow hooks take precedence over bars, BlueBucksClan bring you into their world one clever couplet at a time. With Clan Virus 2, DJ and Jeeezy invite fans into their luxurious universe once more, bringing their city with them on their meteoric rise. In the U.S. alone BlueBucksClan have generated nearly 85 million streams to date.

NOTHING,NOWHERE. SHARES NEW SONG: UPSIDE DOWN

Fueled By Ramen artist nothing,nowhere. has shared a brand-new single, upside down, which is featured on his widely anticipated new album TRAUMA FACTORY due out February 19th. Available now on all streaming platforms, “upside down” pulses with a duality of hypnotic rhythms as nothing,nowhere. traces the slow and painful dissolution of a relationship from his past.

nothing,nowhere. elaborated on the new track remarking, “We’ve all had our fair share of unhealthy relationships. ‘upside down’ is about a lost love and the inability to accept the new and painful circumstances.”

“upside down” arrives as nothing,nowhere’s recent single fake friend continues to climb Billboard’s “Alternative Airplay” chart, reaching Top 25 at the format this week. Also featured on TRAUMA FACTORY, “fake friend” is joined by a Mason Mercer directed official music video which spirals over nothing,nowhere.’s seamless alchemy of alternative, pop, rap, and punk.

Pre-orders for TRAUMA FACTORY are available at www.nothingnowhere.net featuring exclusive limited-edition vinyl and merch. Each pre-order will receive instant grat downloads of “upside down” and “fake friend” as well as previously released singles: lights (4444), pretend, DEATH, nightmare, and blood (Feat. KennyHoopla & JUDGE).

Over the course of 15 tracks, TRAUMA FACTORY cuts deep and finds nothing,nowhere. once again emerging from darkness, shedding external expectation, and moving forward into the glow of pure creation. Whether it be the anesthetized beats and intoxicating lull of “love or chemistry,” the cold piano-laden longing of “crave,” or the emotional immediacy of “upside down,” nothing,nowhere. paints from a wide palette of pain.

“TRAUMA FACTORY is an accumulation of songs written during a confusing time. it is about accepting the present and following your true north through the pain and suffering of human life,” nothing,nowhere. revealed He added, “I wanted to make an album that was truly genreless and inspire others to challenge themselves artistically. I believe the most inspiring art is unpredictable and unrestrictive. to me thatߣs what TRAUMA FACTORY is.”

Last year, The New York Times hailed “DEATH” as a “Scabrous, immensely satisfying emotional expurgation from Joe Mulherin that deploys early Beastie Boys drums and Rage Against the Machine bark-rapping in service of a rap-rock revival bathed in righteousness.”

Last year, he teamed up with Travis Barker for the collaborative EP, bloodlust. bloodlust was highlighted by lead single destruction, which debuted via The FADER with Kerrang! declaring “bloodlust feels like another world. From start to finish it envelops you in its hazy, muted soundscapes.” bloodlust followed a prolific string of singles from nothing,nowhere. –call back, dread, and ornament, and arrived just a year after the release of his acclaimed 2018 LP, ruiner. The sophomore LP features album standouts ruiner and rejecter, which Pigeons&Planes declared, “perfectly exemplify why nothing,nowhere.’s music is so exciting he’s crafted a world of sound that’s both fresh and recognizable.”

The FADER remarked, “The new record is a stimulating blend of singing, hip-hop, and live instrumentation, all fused together with emo and alternative stylings.” nothing,nowhere.’s 2017 debut album, reaper, was met with critical praise led by the singles hopes up (Ft. Dashboard Confessional) and skully.

The album made a massive impact upon its DCD2/Equal Vision release with The New York Times’ Jon Caramanica placing it at #1 on his list of 2017’s best. reaper “synthesizes the second-wave emo of the early to mid-2000s with the rattling hip-hop low end of the last few years,” he wrote. “(reaper) is one of the most promising pop albums of the year,” Rolling Stone declared, “reaper finds him tonally evoking the glory years of 2000s emo-punk without necessarily replicating it.”

nothing,nowhere. is the musical endeavor of Vermont songwriter, singer and guitarist Joe Mulherin. For Mulherin, nothing,nowhere. is about a connection. It’s one he finds with fans around the world, who gather to see him play on tour and to listen to his songs online. It’s that connection that urges the singer to place his fears aside and step onstage each night to share his art. He sees the potential to help, to make a change, however small it may be and that is why he brings his music out of the Vermont wildness.

SHEFF G “Proud of Me Now”

Sheff G, the leader of Brooklyn’s premier crew and label, Winners Circle Entertainment, closes out 2020 with the release of his debut album Proud of Me Now (Winners Circle Entertainment/RCA Records).  With Great John (“on the beat by the way”) helming production, Proud of Me Now is a coming-of-age lyrical journey where Sheff details his evolution – from his slip-ups to his come ups. Click here to listen.

Sheff kicked off Proud Of Me Now with the release of two singles, “No Negotiations and Lights On,” both of which further exemplified why Vulture named him as part of “NY’s Next Rap Generation.” Throughout the album, Sheff continues to play between a smooth flow and guttural style, leading beyond the Brooklyn drill movement.

“‘Proud of Me Now’ is my first album in partnership with RCA and my label Winners Circle. A lot of hard work went into making this album. I’m proud of the music I’m making. I’m proud of my team. I’m proud of being a CEO. I’m proud of me, now!!!,” says Sheff G.

Sheff G has also gained positive attention from the media. “When Flatbush drill rapper Sheff G is at the peak of his powers, his songs are exhilarating…His raps feel like wind sprints,” said Pitchfork.

Sheff G is also proud to have been chosen as Audiomack’s latest UpNow artist, their signature program dedicated to spotlighting and promoting the next generation of global music superstars. Announced earlier today by the streaming platform, Sheff G currently graces the cover of their popular UpNow Playlist and will be prominently featured across their channels with specialized marketing, editorial, social support, playlisting, custom videos, and more.

Over the past two years, and particularly throughout this summer, Sheff G kept the streets of Brooklyn and beyond ablaze with several drops, including his previous mixtape Just For Y’all, which garnered over 9.6M streams across all platforms, and the One and Only EP, ranked #21 on Complex’s list of 2020’s best albums so far.

Sheff G’s rise to stardom began in 2016 creating a local hit, “Nightmare,” produced by Great John in his living room. The following year, he released his breakout hit “No Suburban,” followed by the acclaimed 2019 project, The Unluccy Luccy Kid. Sheff showed no signs of slowing down dropping “No Suburban Pt. 2” which received over 21.2M streams. With each release, Sheff G displays a raw style addressing blunt realities with authenticity.

On the heels of the partnership with RCA Records and Winners Circle Entertainment co-led by Sheff G and Sleepy Hallow, the collective is on a mission to create a culture-defining legacy and sound.  Winners Circle kicked off the partnership with a Sleepy Hallow single, “Tip Toe,” featuring Sheff G. The track delivered gritty verses while juxtaposing a playful sample popularized by Tiny Tim’s ukulele driven hit, “Tiptoe Through the Tulips.”
