RICH THE KID RETURNS WITH “MOTION”

RICH THE KID RETURNS WITH A NEW SINGLE AND VIDEO “MOTION” — ANNOUNCES SIGNING WITH RCA RECORDS

LISTEN HERE / WATCH HERE

Rich The Kid is back with the release of his new single and video “Motion” – listen here / watch here. Over a hypnotizing, melodic beat, Rich spits bars and punctuates his return to music. Directed by DREWFILMEDIT, the visual captures Rich in motion during his daily life. Talking about the new single Rich states, “If you not having ‘Motion’ you have nothing.” The latest drop also comes alongside the announcement of his signing to RCA Records. 

Watch “Motion” HERE.

Born in Queens, New York, Rich found himself immersed in the street rap scene, particularly the escalating beef between Jay-Z and Nas. At just nine years old, Rich was taken by their slick wordplay. New York may have given him his penchant for lyrics, but Atlanta gave him his swag, as he was bound for the South at 11 and started listening to artists like T.I. and Outkast thanks to his uncle. Rich started creating his own music and promoted it through social media, but in order to double down on getting his songs played, he networked heavily and built relationships to get his music heard. In March of 2018, he cut the intoxicating track “New Freezer,” Kendrick Lamar hopped on the track shortly thereafter and a star was born. The double platinum track was followed by the triple platinum colossal single “Plug Walk” later in 2018. The World Is Yours album debuted that same year, followed by The World Is Yours 2 in 2019. In March of 2020, he dropped Boss Man just as the pandemic leaned in, boasting collaborations with the likes of Lil Baby, Nicki Minaj, Post Malone and several others. “The pandemic allowed me to get my mojo back and build a body of work,” Rich explains. “The next album I’m releasing is from songs I’ve recorded through quarantine up until now.”

For Rich, his motion also includes spreading his wings, as he’s gearing up to release music exploring different genres, collaborating with new artists and more. The motion won’t stop from here.

Check out “Motion” and stay tuned for more coming from Rich The Kid.

Gashi album Elevators launched via 360 MAGAZINE.

GASHI – ELEVATORS

Genre-bending artist GASHI returns with his highly-anticipated new album Elevators, out now via RCA RecordsElevators marks the acclaimed musician’s first record in two years, following the release of 1984 in 2020.

Marking the next step in his sonic evolution as an artist, as well as paving the way for what fans can expect from him next, Elevators is an expansive yet intimate body of work that examines many of GASHI’s own personal life experiences while delving into sonic influences of hip-hop, R&B, electronic, and more. Inspired by GASHI’s fear of elevators, the 14-track album finds the artist confronting his past demons and relationships, conquering his fears in order to come back stronger than ever before.

Says GASHI of the release, “when I was eight years old and living in Austria, I got stuck in an elevator for over three hours. My first album was called ‘Stairs’ because I’ve lived my life always taking the longer and harder way up. I’ve been in the game now since 2009 and I have achieved things that I never could have dreamt being possible, but I am not where I want to be yet. We all have demons and fears in life that dictate our everyday decisions, and the hardest thing to do is to silence them so that we can live the life that we are destined to live.”

“I’ve learned that life begins on the other side of fear. On the other side of conquering your demons and letting go of your past or trauma. And that’s why this album, ‘Elevators,’ will be a significant turn in my life. I am finally taking control so that I can elevate to the level of success required for me to make a difference in this world. It’s time to go inside the elevator and press up.”

 

Elevators Tracklist

1. Gasoline

2. Oceans

3. No Drugs In Dubai

4. Closure

5. Blood On Fur

6. Brief Intermission

7. Keep Talking

Protecting my peace, while navigating the challenges of life. This song is a turning point in my mental journey. Addressing fears, seeking therapy, paying homage to those who are living.. its a lot to unpack in the verses but at the end of the day it feels so good to be alive and creating and I’m grateful for every moment.”

About Stunna Gambino:

Stunna Gambino’s made a career out of speaking up. Merging expressive vocals with unfiltered honesty, the 20-year-old rapper creates gripping trench tales of triumph and heartbreak to explore his emotions, and in the process, he’s giving others the courage to raise their voice, too. Raised on the sounds of Lil Wayne, Alicia Keys, Green Day, Mariah Carey, and more, Gambino wrote his first rhymes at around the age of 9. By age 12, he began saving money to hit up a recording studio in Harlem and record his first solo tracks. When he was 14, the  songs he uploaded to SoundCloud regularly eclipsed 80,000 streams. In 2021, after releasing his glittering Underrated project in 2019, he continued building his buzz when he tapped in with The Kid Laroi and Polo G for “Not Sober,” a melodic rumination on escaping pain through self-medication. With spurts of emotional transparency and slurred crooning, the track earned over 105 million Spotify streams, making it his biggest appearance yet. Riding the momentum of Vultures Don’t Cry, Gambino wants to collect platinum plaques while diving into the worlds of art and acting. From there, who knows? “There’s so much shit I wanna do, and I got one foot in the door right now,” he reveals. “This isn’t even the beginning.”
