TENDAYS From South Florida Is Using His Music To Inspire Self-Expression

Tendai Chafa-Govha also known as TENDAYS, is an underground artist who has created music since 2016. Hailing from South Florida, TENDAYS has created a sound that I would say is unlike any music out right now. Throughout his career, he had the opportunity to perform alongside Waka-Flocka and a show with Keke Palmer. While he is still on the up-and-coming, his first show was with worldwide recognized headlining artists with over 450 people in attendance. TENDAYS hopes to use his music to allow his fans to be exactly who they are. “Self-expression. I want somebody to be exactly who they are or what they want to be without any sort of limitations to them. There are different tracks created for different purposes. Right now I’m focusing on caring less for others and more for myself which birthed, “CHUF VENETA”. My alternative music projects stem mostly from emotions or perspectives which will be dropped in the next few months of this year, 2022,” He stated. “The title is “I’ll try again tomorrow” which is one of the biggest downfalls that I’m learning to get rid of by dropping that project. Waiting on what tomorrow may hold is a terrible mindset to …

Rolling Loud Miami 2022 Was A Memorable Moment

If you weren’t at Rolling Loud Miami this past weekend, you missed out on a stellar festival. If you’re not familiar, Rolling Loud is the largest hip-hop festival in the world. Annually, they put together a lineup of the biggest and most influential acts in the genre. While the festival began in Miami, over the years, Rolling Loud has expanded across the country and beyond.  This year’s festival headliners were Kid Cudi, Future, and Kendrick Lamar. Friday was a very interesting night, as Kid Cudi, who was a last-minute replacement for YE, stormed off after crowd members repeatedly threw things onto the stage. Even though YE dropped out of Rolling Loud, he made a surprise performance during Lil Durk’s performance. The crowd went absolutely nuts when he took the stage. Friday also included amazing performances from Playboi Carti, Lil Yatchy, SSGKobe, Homixide Gang, Destroy Lonely, Fivio Foreign, and more. One of my favorite parts of the night was stopping by an exclusive VIP lounge area featuring the D’USSE ambassador and Houston’s rap legend Bun B. His D’USSE Watermelon Cooler was the highlight of my night. The drink was extremely refreshing. Especially when it was paired with Bun B’s Trill Burgers. …

Behind The Scenes of Dot Da Genuis’s “Talk About Me” Music Video

enjoy the latest behind-the-scenes episodes of our new music video for “Talk About Me” by Dot Da Genuis, Kid Cudi, JID, and Denzel Curry 🙂

Talk About Me – [Dot Da Genius] ft. [Kid Cudi] [Denzel Curry] & [J.I.D.]

Dot Da Genius is a legend in this industry, and if his name is new to you, you might want to do some research before you speak any further. I mean, he was the mastermind behind Kid Cudi’s 2008 hit “Day ‘n’ Nite” as well as a variety of other Cudi records, and he has also worked with world renown artists including Nas, Denzel Curry, Lil Nas X, and plenty more. Producers just don’t seem to get the same spotlight as emcees because their work is often done behind the scenes, so when I saw that Dot teamed up with the captain of our ship Cole Bennett, I wasn’t wasting any time to peep the magic that was brought to life. “Talk About Me” features Kid Cudi, Denzel Curry, and J.I.D., so even though this is a trio I didn’t expect to come across in a million years, they work so incredibly well over Dot’s insanely poignant instrumental, and the video is one of the best pieces of art I have seen all year. There is a mixture of black and white scenes sprinkled in throughout, but even in the clips that contain color, it seems like the vibrancy is …

Do What I Want – [Kid Cudi]

Disclaimer: ever since Kid Cudi teased this song on an IG Live with Rashida Jones (?? still waiting on why that happened) – I knew this was going to colonize my weekly rotation the minute it came out. I just had to check Google to learn that was over TWO (2) years ago? And here I am typing? Who else can do that but Kid Cudi? Today our king returns with the long-awaited Take A Daytrip-produced  “Do What I Want” – a high-energy and cosmic banger from his forthcoming project Entergalactic. Cudi is also slated to release his animated series of the same name on the same day as the album, so perhaps it is safe to say that the young rager has been keeping himself busy lately. Despite juggling an animated series with collaborations from Nigo to Sonic the Hedgehog, “Do What I Want” is one of the most concentrated and polished releases since Cudi dropped MOTM:3. A master of media and a man of the people, Kid Cudi is always an artist that deserves to be on your radar – but perhaps more so now than ever before. Though a release date for the series and its eponymous album is …

Hear Me Clearly – [Nigo] & [Pusha T]

I think it isn’t a stretch by any means to mention exactly how massive Nigo is as a musician, but also as an influence on others. He is one of the people that you can point to and credit for paving a way for artists today to bring inventive sounds to the forefront of their music, and his legendary status is never going to waiver, and it clearly hasn’t even in a couple of decades without really making music. His album I Know NIGO! was as highly anticipated as it can get, and I think it is beyond clear that he has possibly some of the most pull out of anyone in the music industry. This is abundantly obvious even just looking at his album’s tracklist because when you see names like A$AP Rocky, Pusha T, Pharrell, Gunna, Kid Cudi, Tyler, the Creator, and even the late great Pop Smoke, amongst countless others, all side by side on the same project. So, if this isn’t an absolute spectacle and a half in your mind, then I think you need to pay the doctor a visit ASAP. Although it only lasts about 32 minutes long, it is definitely going to go …

I Know NIGO! – [Nigo]

Hip-hop purists and iconoclasts alike can rejoice today, as BAPE founder and cultural paragon Nigo returns this week with his long-awaited compilation album I Know NIGO!. Like the LP title indicates, the almost-dozen tracks delivered to us today are all distinctly rarified – each one a perfectly-polished love letter to hip-hop’s cultural canon and limitless future. Partially previewed at Nigo’s A/W ’22 debut, I Know NIGO! features performances from artists like Tyler, the Creator, A$AP Rocky, Kid Cudi, and Clipse – as well as production from Pharrell, Hector Delgado, Chad Hugo, Carter Lang, Cubeatz, and more. It’s nearly impossible to select standout moments from I Know NIGO! because every track is like that one song on a record where you think “Wow, I can’t believe X assembled these artists together like that”. Though most hip-hop stans might gravitate towards the two cuts involving Tyler, the Creator (“Come On, Let’s Go” and the Slim Thug-homage “Lost and Found Freestyle 2019”), I can’t hide my excitement surrounding the fact that Nigo gave us a Pharrell-produced Teriyaki Boyz banger in 2022. No matter where your affinities lie, every guest on this record refuses to hold back on what might be the best compilation …

Heavy – [NIGO] & [Lil Uzi Vert]

Whether you’re a part of the new generation of musicians or an old head, there should be no question that you’re well aware of the impact that NIGO has had on the world of music. Although it has been around 20 years since he last released an album, which is seriously mind-boggling if you think about it, his impact has spanned almost two decades and continues to influence up-and-coming talents who weren’t even born back then, and that’s not something even a minuscule fraction of the industry can claim to have been able to do. With the release of his extensive hiatus-ending album I KNOW NIGO set to release in the near future hopefully, he has been on a tear proving that he hasn’t lost his touch even a bit thanks to the release of singles featuring massive superstars like A$AP Rocky, Kid Cudi, Pusha T, and others, but he is back and ready to gift us even more with his latest song “Heavy” featuring the Philadelphia phenom Lil Uzi Vert. While I was expecting these two talents to do something very bright and vivacious together, they actually opted for the opposite after NIGO set up a super dark, penetrating …

Mikey Polo – Moncler Mary

DMV EMO rapper Mikey Polo is creating his own lane in the music industry. After emerging on the mainstream scene with his song “Bugatti Spaghetti ” featuring Trippie Redd in 2020, his music began to receive the attention he deserved. With Kanye West, Kid Cudi, Young Thug, and Travis Scott as his biggest influences in the game, it’s no surprise to see the artist he’s transforming into. Earlier this month, Mikey returned to reveal his newest single and visual for his song“Moncler Mary ” produced by CashCudi. Directed by Whycrxd and Kiiru, the video centers around Mikey in ski goggles and of course a 1600 Moncler vest. “Moncler Mary is more of a chilled ride around and going shopping type of song,“ he explained. ” While PHC is more of a Tiktok song with crazy catchy phrases and high energy.” “Ridin’ with your b*tch, ridin’ ’round the town, ’round the town (Woo). Now she hooked on me, so it’s goin’ down, goin’ down. When I get up in it she gon’ make a whole lotta sound. Baby, we gon’ make a whole movie, I’m gon’ take it out. I enjoy learning about artists like Mikey because they bring something different …

Arya – [Nigo] ft. [A$AP Rocky]

I don’t think it’s a very controversial thing whatsoever to say that Nigo has left one of the most notable marks on this Earth so far, and he is still in the prime of his career. If you’re familiar with the Japanese icon, as you should be, it could be because of a plethora of reasons including his creation of BAPE, Billionaire Boys Club, Ice Cream, or Human Made, amongst many other brands, or his impact on the music world thanks to his group the Teriyaki Boyz as well as his work with countless other world-renown talents over the years. It has been almost two decades since we last received a solo album from the legendary talent, but that hiatus will come to an end this March with the release of his upcoming album I Know Nigo, and I couldn’t be more impatient for a project to drop. In order to get some buzz surrounding what is sure to be an incredible album, Nigo teamed up with A$AP Rocky to deliver an absolute hit entitled “Arya”, and the results speak for themselves. Aside from this flawless single, there is also an AWGE-directed music video that is as clean as visuals …
