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.

Today South Central bred rapper Payso B releases his new single “Hot Boy.” With the release of the song he originally wrote last year, Payso B enters the “hot boy/hot girl” conversation in Los Angeles with a big feature from Lil Shacc, who was recently sentenced to 100 years in prison.

Combined with a vibrant merchandise line in which half of all proceeds will go to paying Lil Shacc’s attorney fees, Payso Bemerges from the streets of LA with an uptempo record ready for Summer.

“Hot Boy is an uptempo, LA sounding club song that I did a year or so back with my best friend Lil Shacc. He’s on the hook a lil bit and it really means a lot for me to put it out right now because they just gave him almost 100 years in jail, basically a life sentence,” Payso B said.

“Half the profit of the merch is going to his lawyer, so I really want to release that because he helped me with the song before he went to jail. It’s just real current with the hot boy and hot girl movement right now. It’s not like I’m chasing the train on the hot boy or hot girl sh*t, because I was about to put it out last Summer, but I wanted to make the march, so I wanted everyone to know that I’m one of the real hot boys in LA with the real hot boy/hot girl movement out here in LA.”

“Hot Boy” is set to be featured on Payso B’s sequel mixtape, The Plug 2, hosted by the highly influential California DJs, DJ Carisma and Dre Sinatra.

“It’s called The Plug 2, which is going to be hosted by DJ Carisma and Dre Sinatra. My last tape was hosted by them and which was The Plug 1 and I got a bout a half a million views on Soundcloud with that one. But this song is on the Plug 2 and it’s all LA uptempo sounding music that people really want from me,” Payso B said.

Known for his Platinum production work on the Finatticz track “Don’t Drop That Thun Thun,” Payso B says his new work is a return to his original sound.

“I kind of came up in the YG/DJ Mustard’s era and I really helped make that whole jerk movement sound, that’s what I was really a part of, so I’m going to give the people what they want. I’m one of the originators of that sound, so I’m gonna still hit them with that sound and I’m gonna still hit em with that real shit, but this that shit they want.”

Today rising singer/rapper Random Cochella delivers her new single, “George Jefferson” Ft. Big2daboy. Often standing out for her eye catching name that’s a combination of the words, “Random Complex Emotions,” according to Random Cochella, “Chella means emotional. I’m a very complex and an emotional person, hence random – complex – emotions, so it’s Random Cochella.”

Led by her new “George Jefferson” single, Random Cochella sings and raps about coming up just like any other rapper, but what’s different is the struggle that most people won’t understand at face value.

Despite growing up just outside of the paradise that is Honolulu, Hawaii, living on the Western part of of the island of O’ahu in the city of Waipahu aka 94 block, Random Cochella grew up under rough circumstances. Lacking support from her mother and being physically abused by her brother, “Chella” found her way out of a bad family situation when she moved to Los Angeles in pursuit of her dreams to make music.

“The new single is George Jefferson, Biggie2daboy came up in the lab out in Hawthorne and he merk’d that sh*t, he got me so stoked.” Random Cochella said. “The song is about moving on up from where we was at and we did it organically. We had talked about collabing every time we seen each other in the streets or at events. The song was produced by Track who had invited Big to come listen to my album and Big was feeling the songs on the album and he wanted to come work on the record, so we did one from scratch. From the ukulele to making the beat we were here for hours vibing and making the beat.”

Managed by her mentor and producer Track, Random Cochella made a way for herself and has since established roots in Southern California.

“I was always told by my family to ‘go sing, go sing’ and I always grew up in a family that loved music. My mom would clean the house and listen to Whitney Houston and a whole bunch of other artists.” Random Cochella said. “I met my producer and teammate Track at a modeling shoot in Hawaii and ever since we’ve been working together and clicked, making the move out to LA. I ain’t even gonna lie we were ripping and running and it was a struggle, but we got through it and it was just an exciting transition. Just feeling out LA itself and just trying to find out who we network with and how we move around was incredible.”

Looking forward, fans can expect a full length album titled Therapy from Random Cochella this Fall that is still in the works and yet to be titled.

“I’m telling you this, not one song is the same – they aren’t ready for this project. I was going through a lot of shit recently and some of it was suppressed feelings from when I was kid. My brother beat me and my mother didn’t support me. My mom’s boyfriend molested me and I had to suppress those feelings among the long list of issues I had to deal with over the course of my life regarding close friends, family and people I met along the way,” she said.
