ABOUT KASH DOLL

Detroit native Kash Doll has impacted the music industry with a commanding force, dropping street-earned truths with her throwback wordplay and powerful bars. The one-two combination of spirit and sass announced her as fiery female force in 2019 after quietly amassing 30 million-plus on-demand streams, garnering the BMI Social Star Award and “Issa Wave Award” at the BET Social Awards, securing a new management deal with Title 9 Productions and inking a recording contract with Republic Records. An unbelievable story brought her to this point. Losing her dad on just her first birthday, she always held down multiple jobs to support her mom and siblings. And at 18, she started investing in herself eventually opening two beauty bars and funding her own music career. She made waves on the 2014 independent debut mixtape, Keisha Vs. Kash Doll.

Following 2016’s Trapped In The Dollhouse, she developed a presence as a touring force and earned coveted co-signs from Drake, Big Sean, Rick Ross, Remy Ma, and many more. The 2018 The Vault mixtape captured #1 on multiple mixtape sites as her debut single for Republic Records “Ice Me Out” and its 2 Chainz-assisted official remix clocked 85 million-plus total streams. Last year, Kash Doll also released a project solely for her fans titled Brat Mail to thank them for all their continued support. The project garnered over 30 million global streams and features the break out single “Check.” Shortly before Brat Mail, Kash released one of her biggest singles to date, “For Everybody,” which racked up over 101 million YouTube/VEVO views independently. Outside of music, this boss runs Kash Doll Enterprises and does charity work around her hometown. Her city bestowed the “Spirit of Detroit” Award upon her.

A BETTER TIME sees the two-time MTV European Music Award winner call for unity at a time of civil unrest across Nigeria and other African nations as he pulls together sounds from all corners of his beloved continent, Africa. A BETTER TIME features African talent from across Nigeria (Tiwa Savage, Mayorkun, Bella Shmurda & C Kay) Ghana (Mugeez), Kenya (Sauti Sol) and South Africa (Sho Madjozi). Davido also reconnects with frequent collaborators Fresh VDM, Peruzzi and Speroach Beatz. Across the waters in the United States, Davido connects with a stellar line up of notable features. On “Birthday Cake” he collaborates with rap legend Nas and Grammy Award winning producer Hit-Boy. “Shopping Spree” sees Davido reunite once again with Chris Brown and Young Thug. Additional appearances from Atlanta’s finest Lil Baby on So Crazy and pop superstar Nicki Minaj.

The album’s first single FEM (produced by Napji) earned widespread praise and shot straight to the No.1 spot in the Apple Music charts in over 8 countries including Nigeria, where it held the top position for 4 weeks. “FEM” became the unofficial protest song embraced by the #ENDSARS movement against police brutality in Nigeria. The track has since enjoyed over 40 million streams globally, viewed over 11m times on YouTube and reached #19 on US iTunes chart.

“One thing about Africans – rich or poor, happy or sad, is that no matter what the situation going on in your country, you always find a reason to smile and just be happy. We (African people) always like to celebrate and A BETTER TIME is that outlet to be free, be happy and hopeful for a better future.” Davido commented.

A BETTER TIME is executive-produced by Davido and his son Ifeanyi Adeleke and follows the highly praised 2019 sophomore album A Good Time which has achieved over 1.2 billion streams to date globally.

Jay Gwuapo – Lost Files

Today, 20-year-old Brooklyn drill rapper Jay Gwuapo releases a new track and visual for the deeply personal “Lost Files,” which is a track recorded as a letter to his late friends Pop Smoke and KJ Balla following their deaths earlier this year. After being in a dark place grieving their losses, Gwuapo turned to music for expression and healing. Along with the track, he shares the accompanying video via From Nothing Records/Polo Grounds Music/RCA Records. Click HERE to watch/listen.

Last week Guwapo returned with the release of “Black Mask” ft. Pop Smoke. The track is special to the rising rapper as it features one of his best childhood friends, the late Pop Smoke.. “Black Mask” is the only time the two had collaborated, but Pop credited Jay for encouraging him to pursue a career in rap. Click HERE to watch the interview clip with DJ Whoo Kid.

Along with “Black Mask” Gwuapo also released three additional tracks “Intro,” “Smoke Season Freestyle” and “Dangerous.” These four tracks honor and pay tribute to Pop as well as KJ Balla, who was a frequent collaborator, labelmate and friend of Gwuapo that was tragically killed earlier this year. Gwuapo has spent this year connecting with fans through his music releases on his SoundCloud and other platforms and these four tracks marked his official return.

Gwuapo’s releases this year also include, “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.”

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 20 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 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 K. 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, who’s 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.
