The Fly Go Gettaz collective co-founder Wavii is repping Yonkers, New York His latest track, “Gold,” is a bouncy -radio-ready track that leans on the upstart’s melodic flow and rapid-fire flow, with crystal clear delivery. Currently a college student, Wavii shot the visual for the new single in a classroom setting, in what appears to be faux detention.

Shaking up the culture and bringing a fresh perspective is his goal, and according to the MC himself, the track is his return to music with full dedication. “Been in the studio consistently working hard on my craft to get me to this point … I wanna thank all my fans, friends, and family for believing in me and giving me a platform to give ya this good music that’s about to be placed out there,” he said.

As he feverishly plugs away at the tweaks on his brand new LP produced entirely by longtime friend, L.A. based producer and DJ 1mor — host of CashOnly Radio, which airs Thursdays from 8-9 pm on Dash Radio — Mr2TheP drops a brand new single “SANDCASTLES,” complete with an introduction to his latest hat, videography.

The Orange County-born Maui rapper tells AAHH that the album — tentatively titled LSP — was mostly recorded in a short period. “[The album was] produced while 1mor was staying with me at the compound in Maui,” he says — recalling the sessions at his Maui studio, which he christened last year with his deeply personal musical-journey (album) Island Fever. He relocated to the Central Pacific island in 2017 and beginning building the creative hub after the loss of his daughter

“You was hoping that I’d stop and fumble, what … because I’m middle-aged dope and don’t f*cking mumble?” — Mr2theP, “SANDCASTLES”

The visual for the super cool single was shot via iPhone X with anamorphic lens and edited by P himself, is — according to him — beyond a display of his creativity, a taste of what’s to come. “I recently took up video directing, and I’m looking to expand on my visuals this year, crafting videos to some of the significant features I’m sitting on,” he says.

He’s mum about the features themselves, preferring to show and prove, allowing the product to speak for itself; however, based on his track record, which includes a discography packed with quality releases (and collaborations with Daylyt among others), we’re in for something special.

Filmed & Edited by Thee Pictorialist for Tito Gave Me the Numbers Productions

DBM aka Dane The Beautiful Monster is prepping to drop his upcoming album, From Ashes Rose A King by unleashing his third single “Nefertiti (In My House)” last month.

Today (March 8), DBM releases the visual to “Nefertiti (In My House)” which is a track that pairs laid back vibes with DBM’s storytelling. The Instrument Addicts produced track finds the Newark, New Jersey-based rapper telling a story about an encounter with the ancient pharaoh, Nefertiti.

 “Nefertiti (In My House) sitting on my couch, vaporizer in her mouth, she’s resurrected, homie / And she the real thang, homie she the real thang,” rhymes DBM on the song’s hook.

In the visual Nefertiti is relaxing on DBM’s couch while he’s enjoying her aura. What a perfect time to celebrate a beautiful queen during Women’s History Month!

“Melanin endowed queens, it’s all about you. Enjoy! Sincerely, the black king.” – DBM
