North Carolina hip-hop duo Jae Mansa are excited to share their socially conscience new music video “Yung Kings.” The song is the title track from their Yung Kings EP available now through their equity distribution deal with Roc Nation.

“The goal behind every video we shoot is to teach, inspire or inform. I’m not talking down on nobody else, but it’s pointless for us to shoot a video just to shoot it,” explains Jae, one-half of Jae Mansa. “With Yung Kings we aim to inspire our people. Despite how America treats us or how many of us are killed for no justifiable reason, you can’t erase the fact that we are descendants of KINGS.”

“Yung Kings” follows the group’s breakout song “Fate” that’s gained over 3 Million plays on Spotify and landed on blogs, playlists and radio support. Bouncing off a string of shows including showcases at SXSW and opening up for for Money Bagg Yo in Savannah, GA, Jae Mansa is maturing both on stage and in the booth as they prep more visuals and new music to release this Summer.”Everybody thinks rapping is just getting in the booth, but it’s way more to this industry,” says B. “You gotta go state to state, promote your music 24/7. It’s fun for us, but there’s a lot of work that goes into it. If you think it’s an easy job, forget about it. We’re constantly on the road and as soon as we’re home, we’re back in the studio. The grind never stops!”

If you are looking for ransom I can tell you I don't have money, but what I do have are a very particular set of skills. Skills I have acquired over a very long career. Skills that make me a nightmare for people like you.

Mr. P Chill Put Love Over BS On ”Where Do We Go”

Longtime AAHIPHOP support MC Mr. P Chill releases an inspiringly powerful new record titled ”Where Do We Go,” a song…

Longtime AAHIPHOP support MC Mr. P Chill releases an inspiringly powerful new record titled ”Where Do We Go,” a song that rhetorically ponders where society — in its current broken iteration — goes next. Over an airy instrumental, the vet drops bars packed with hard truths and poignant food for thought.

The song’s visual treatment follows P Chill through scenes accented by trains and retrospective solitude, capturing the song’s aesthetic perfectly. Whether an answer for the world’s seeming devolvement into a state of World Star Hip Hop-esque ignorance is love, the MC wears his views (particularly on the current administration and the country’s ”fearless” leader) on his sleeve.

Hip Hop as a voice of change — refreshingly back to basics. Check out Mr. P Chill’s ”Where Do We Go” above.

East Coast representer P 80 returns with a new single dubbed, “Smooth Ish”.  Produced by Grammy Award winning and RIAA Platinum producer Omen, who produced Drake’s “Shut It Down” and Lil Wayne’s “I’m Single,” this sonically dark East Coast track carries a mellow vibe as P 80 effortlessly rhymes with a monotone flow on the track.

“Me and Omen made the beat together a few years ago. When I made the song I didn’t really like it but Omen did and he kinda pressed me to put it on tha EP,” P 80 explained. “After we put out the EP, I realized that a lot of people fu**ed with it so we shot the vid for it with Xash.”

The visual follows up P 80’s previous release “For You” ft. Selina Carrera, which earned P 80 critical acclaim from over 30 blog sites including Daily-HipHop, Siccness, HipHopEnquirer, Tent-TV and more.

With Summer around the corner P 80 is focused on the essentials in life right now; creating and chasing after the all-mighty dollar.

“My plans for the Summer is to keep creating and save my paper. Try to stay focused and inspired,” P 80 explained.

As Dante Swave prepares for the release of his upcoming EP, Take Your Soul, the introspective rapper delivers the lead single to the project dubbed, “Vibes” produced by Shhbang Records.

 

According to Dante the song is about energy, self love and the idea of being alive: “The way you can catch a vibe is through energy, any feeling that makes you feel good in any sort of way. Aesthetics within your visionary perception. Meeting people you connect with, having fun, and being comfortable with yourself is how you catch a vibe. It all starts with self-love and loving the idea of being alive,” Dante explained.

 

After taking his high school by storm rapping a diss record at the school talent show, Dante Swave became inspired to pursue rap seriously speaking on real life situations and violence that he witnessed in New York as a youth.

 

I started rapping when I was 13 years old because of life situations that made me put a pen to paper like violence in the streets of NYC and common teen depression,” Dante Swave explained. “I made a diss track towards someone at my old high school in retaliation for making a song about me. I  performed it at a school talent show which made my whole school go crazy, making me realize this is what I wanted to do”

 

Rolling into the Summer, Dante Swave is prepping for his Take Your Soul EP and encourages everyone to live their best life.”Be yourself and live your best life, this world is like an alternate reality just play it the best way you can and have fun.”
