In My Head – [Yung Denari]

The influence of the Promoting Sounds YouTube channel has been a fascinating site to watch. Becoming a home for so much melodic, emotion-driven music, the channel almost has a signature sound attached to it, which has become a strong stylistic point for countless new artists, groups, and scenes over the years. With Promoting Sounds to thank in many respects, a number of buzzing artists have chosen to dig deeper into this style, which leads us to find undeniable gems every now and then: Yung Denari, being the latest. New York-based talent Yung Denari recently released a music video for his song “In My Head” via Promoting Sounds, and as of late, it’s become one of my most played releases on the channel. Beginning with a shoutout from the late Juice Wrld, Denari’s latest is the culmination of an ear worm hook, a nearly effortless string of melodies, and well-suited production that leans on guitar strings and a vocal sample to set the song’s foundation. These elements combine to make an undeniable release, and one that oozes replay value, which has grown to become the standard when it comes to Promoting Sounds. Without further ado, “In My Head” stands tall as …

100 Rounds – [Dro Kenji]

After connecting with some of the industry’s most talented tastemakers throughout the years in person, through social media, and various other ways, I’ve been put onto some incredible artists. While the amount of immense talent can be overwhelming at times due to all the incredibly promising up and comers, there are just certain artists that release even just a preview of their music and you immediately head to their SoundCloud to see what other hits they’ve made. Dro Kenji is the latest musician that comes to mind, and although there I couldn’t find a ton of information online about him, his music speaks for itself and anyone who tunes in will understand exactly what I mean. After teaming up with Internet Money recently, his aptitudes have been leveled up remarkably, as most collaborators with IM can expect, and I can only imagine his price has skyrocketed ever since. Just the other day, he hopped on an incredible beat that was co-produced by none other than Nick Mira, oktanner, and OVRCZ, and they brought an instrumental to life that highlights Dro’s talents flawlessly. Poignant, moving guitar strums are elevated by rattling percussion and intense drums that combine for an insane beat, …

SITCHY – [Brent Rambo] ft. [Otto]

Ever since I dove deeper into the world of Rap music beyond the mainstream offerings that massive artists drop, my outlook on Rap changed forever. Probably one of, if not the very first artists I was introduced to was Brent Rambo, and he is almost solely responsible for this completely new mindset I had when listening to music. As a producer, he was bringing some of the wildest, most inventive instrumentals to life for some additionally unique rappers such as Big Body Fiji, Warhol.ss, Nolanberollin, and Famous Dex to name just a few, and his utilization of out of the box sounds and tempos truly opened my mind to an entirely new sonic world. No one was able to copy his sound or production style because it was so creative that he made it almost unintentionally impossible to copy his skills, so with the fact that he was always bringing something new to the table to challenge and push artists out of their comfort zones, I never knew what to expect in the best possible way. Since his introduction in music so many years ago, he has made hits with some of the biggest names in music at this point, …

Lemonade (Remix) – [Internet Money] feat. [Don Toliver] & [Roddy Ricch]

By now, we have all been familiarized with the earth-shattering single “Lemonade” provided by the Internet Money collective. The original video shot by Lyrical Lemonade’s own Cole Bennett has already racked up over 22 million views on Youtube, and is going crazy on all U.S. and International charts. As the crept up on us, “Lemonade” is easily a top contender for Song of the Summer as well, despite us not being able to feel this songs energy out in the clubs and functions. That being said, it was already destined for success in the long run. Don Toliver was having nothing short of an amazing run this year, Nav received amazing praise from all over, and Gunna has been consistently over achieving as Young Thug’s protégée. The cohesiveness that exists amongst Don Toliver, Nav & Gunna on this record was like no other, and it truly shows with just how well this song has been performing thus far. Taz Taylor, Nick Mira and the Internet Money team have been going crazy ever since the release of their album B4 the Storm in late August, so it was no surprise that they would come back adding more gasoline to the fire. As if …

Baggin’ – [Marshmello] & [42 Dugg]

Marshmello has obviously been a staple in the music scene for at least a few years now, but he’s obviously been involved in a genre outside of the Rap and Hip-Hop world. While EDM has always shared similar influences in certain instances as Rap music, it is typically a love or hate genre. I’ve become more accustomed to it over the past couple of months and I can listen to select songs and artists, but it takes a specific moment in time to truly connect with me. At the same time, I love seeing these genres cross paths with one another and seeing the very entertaining results that unfold when an electronic producer teams up with a rapper or singer. Marshmello has always been in tune with the Rap world, but it wasn’t until recently that he actually decided to try his hand at actual Rap production rather than just giving a more minimal EDM beat to a rapper to spit on. He has been present all over Juice WRLD’s insanely successful posthumous album and he has worked with a few other artists, but most recently, he teamed up with Detroit star 42 Dugg to make another hit, this one …

B4 The Storm – [Internet Money]

Internet Money is basically the music powerhouse that the average fan has no idea about. They’re cranking out hit after hit with not only big-name artists, but also with their in-house talents who are going to be superstars in their own right in no time at all. As they began to hype up their debut album B4 The Storm, I was getting so impatient because I knew that the rest of the world was in for something incredible, but I had to hear it with my own two ears to make sure my expectations could be justified. It obviously came out at midnight going into Friday so it’s been out for a few days, but I really wanted to take some time to run through it multiple times and truly take in all of the artistry and effort that went into this incredible album, and man, was I not let down in the slightest. On B4 The Storm, the masterminds behind Internet Money, including Taz Taylor and Nick Mira, were able to meld features from massive names like Future, Wiz Khalifa, Kevin Gates, Gunna, and more, with some incredibly talented and promising young artists like TyFontaine, TheHxliday, The Kid Laroi, …

Thrusting – [Internet Money] ft. [Swae Lee] & [Future]

Internet Money is the powerhouse in music that everyone in the music industry raves about and respects, but I’m not sure the general public or casual music listener knows about just how much they’re responsible for in terms of songs, styles, and breakout artists. They’ve pretty much created a sound that took the world by storm over the past few years and now the scene is flooded with some of the various styles they’ve created throughout this time. Although they’ve produced hits for absolute icons and legends, they also have their own in-house signees who I think are more promising than anyone else in the current climate of music. It’s also insane how they don’t just stop at Hip-Hop or Rap but rather expand their horizons and branch out into other genres to not only reach various audiences but to also challenge themselves to try new things and continue to invent new sounds and styles. If you’re at all familiar with Internet Money or music in general, then it shouldn’t come as a surprise in the slightest that their debut album B4 The Storm is just a week away. When I saw the tracklist, I almost passed out after seeing …

Smile – [The Weeknd] & [Juice WRLD]

Some things in life are just meant to happen and speaking certain moments into existence can certainly help put some of these things out into the universe. When Juice tweeted that he and The Weekend would inevitably make a diamond record with one another, it was only a matter of time before it actually happened. Juice was already a massive star and was somehow gaining even more traction than ever before which was seemingly impossibly considering he was already one of the most recognizable names in the music industry. The Weekend, however, has pretty much already cemented his legacy as one of the greatest singers of our generation who also knows how to make hit after hit, so when everything fell into place and he got an opportunity to deliver a verse on a previously recorded Juice song, he knew he had to make some magic with the dearly missed icon. The song I’m talking about ended up being called “Smile” and it’s a song you’ve probably been seeing everywhere considering how big of a deal it is that this collaboration finally happened. Internet Money production masterminds Nick Mira, Taz Taylor, and Cxdy all got together to bring this song …

A Conversation w/ J.I the Prince of NY: Returning to Music After Quitting, Current Brooklyn Scene, “Painless 2” w/ Lil Durk & Nav and more.

“I really view myself higher than a prince to be honest. Sometimes I view myself as a king or a God when it comes to my music. I just know that I have more work to do to really get to that point and work harder towards the goals that I have.” -J.I the Prince of N.Y It’s safe to say that if you are a fan of hip hop, or even music in general, that you may have had those childhood dreams of becoming a superstar one day. You may be in your room rehearsing rap songs, or having daydreams of you performing on stage in front of a sea of fans reciting every lyric you spit. For some of us, those thoughts may not make it past that, but for others, that dream had the potential to turn into a reality. Being a young teen and dreaming of being famous and on TV is something that not many rappers can say that they have had the experience of living through. For the 18 year old Brooklyn-native J.I the Prince of N.Y, he turned that dream into a reality when he first appeared on Jermaine Durpi’s The Rap Game at …
