Buttabeats Inc Stays True To His Grind With Powerful New Music

For real artists, the path to success is rarely ever straight and narrow, but rather a series of trials and tribulations that at times tests one’s dedication and genuine love of what they’re doing. Look no further than ButtaBeats Inc, hailing from Greenburgh, New York. He honed his skills as both a mc and producer in the early 2000s as part of the regional collective U.D.R. (Up Da River).

U.D.R. wasn’t able to make the commercial impact they had hoped; a few years later he broke up with fellow collective member Taj Mill to release the collaborative effort Shine From Within. Again, with critical acclaim and a handful of supporting live performances, it failed to gain any traction.

Real artists don’t quit, though.

Now, nine years later ButtaBeats Inc is a solo artist/producer who is still doing what he loves. “An avid reader and connoisseur of African American culture and history my music speaks to a time when a Rappers had to have something to say —almost as much they as they needed the swag and style which is in abundance today,” he tells AAHH.

His upcoming album The Revenge of Charles Martin — tentatively scheduled to drop mid-Feb — is a testament to what it took to get from an aspiring rapper/producer to being one. “While most may not have heard of me before, I will be heard from here on out.” The love of this never dies for real artists that have something to say.

Colorado Springs-born LA-resident Mallek Miller is making some noise with his latest single “2x2x,” a bassy R&B tinged track that sees the singer/rapper lamenting his feelings to a love interest. Produced by KYCHOPPITUP, the bassy song — which already has over 11k spins on SoundCloud–exposes his roots: a foundational blend of the OVO/XO sound, and a blend of the pop-rap wave that is currently soaking the West Coast mainstream.

The song is the first release off of his upcoming mixtape, which is dropping on February 28 via BlackHeartDigitalMusic. Stream the single, below.

ATL Musical Machine L.D. Launches Kickstarter For Upcoming Tour

His latest EP charted on Billboard!

Tampa Bay, Florida, bred (ATL-based) rapper/singer L.D. is about to embark on a 90-day tour along the southeastern region of the US with additional dates in California and Texas–but not without your help. The 22-year-old recently launched a Kickstarter campaign to help fund the tour, which is in support of his Billboard charting EP The Crossover, which spent three consecutive weeks on Billboard’s Heatseekers chart, peaking at #6.

“Music is life,” L.D. says in the 2016 trailer for HopeUDiggIt: The Percocet Diaries, “well, it’s my life. I can play any instrument you can name, I sing, rap … do trap, rock, R&B. I produce and engineer every last one of my songs,” he notes, explaining that he’s bigger than just a ‘rapper’ or artist. “I’m like a musical machine.”

With three releases under his belt, L.D. has been building a name for himself, opening up for major acts like Ace Hood, Rick Ross, Soulja Boy, 2 Chainz, and TI., and placing videos on MTV. Having been pursuing his dreams since 5-years-old, and also acting as a certified audio engineer, he’s been consistently striving to reach new heights and hit his goal of being a household name.

“I just get vibes in the studio and let my brain be the pen and pad.”

Bronx Rapper Jo-Bread Drops First Single Of 2018

New mixtapes are on the way!

Bronx rapper Jo-Bread has been on the come up for a number of years now; with New York City on a new up rise, he’s poised for great things. His new record “Dream About It,” the first taste of his upcoming project Our Daily Bread Pt. 2. Currently playing on radio across the east coast, it displays the confidence of an artist who has most certainly been here before, over a dreamy trap vibe built for riding out to after dark with the windows down.

Our Daily Bread Pt. 1 & 2 are slated to release at the same time next month, and are poised to show the music industry what he is made of.

Jo has been on our radar since “Sawse,” which dropped a few years back. He’s more than ready — with a ton of hometown looks and a great catalog of tracks under his belt, dating back to 2013’s 4EVA ME and 2015’s 88 KEYZ.

Check out the new single, below, and stay tuned to Jo-Bread and the whole BREADGVNG.

J Nyce Makes His Debut With “CICI”

“Mainstream. Mainstream. Mainstream.”

Carolina-born and Atlanta-finessed J Nyce, known to his closest friends and family as Jake is quick to denote that he isn’t just another rapper. “I’m anything my artistic ability allows for me to be,”
He clarified to AAHH. “I do love to sing more than rap I think.”

A newcomer (seriously—his debut was last week), his music comes from his life experiences. “Pain, happiness, anger, shame, love, and hate are all emotions that I harness and let flow through my pen,” he says. “I write my music for a reason … with a direction in mind.”

“I want you to feel something,” he continues. “I know that if I shed tears writing my new single, ‘CICI’ others would feel that same love. So I’m a true artist. I’m a real artist. And I’m changing the world.”

Though this is his debut, he’s been making music for years. “I started rapping when Nas came out with “Ether,” he says. He got his chops in high school cyphers battling for respect. “I guess that’s why I’m so big on lyrical content and being able to perform,” he notes.

“My Mom and Dad used to always sing,” he says discussing his earlier influences. “I remember times of seeing my Mom sing at wedding receptions and different gatherings, not knowing that those were occasions that subconsciously affected my drive to want to be on the mic and in front of a crowd till now.“

“I came here for a reason. I’ve always had dreams of being an awesome entertainer. So here I am.”

“I’m currently working on my debut EP,”
He says proudly. “I’m working on becoming a household name like all of the greats. And I’m well on my way!”

To date, he’s opened shows for the likes of Project Pat. “I’ve been all over the country touring, destroying mics, and making lifelong friends and fans,” he says. “Recently partnering up with one of the greatest engineers I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with, Andre Moss(Up Some More Studios), I was able to produce one of the best songs I’ve ever heard, “CiCi.”

His goals in the game? “Mainstream. Mainstream. Mainstream.”

“More tours, full radio rotation, a collab with Lil Wayne, and alot of business building,” he says. Stay tuned.
