Florida MC Major D-Star is someone who we’ve been covering on the site since late 2017, and we’re excited about what he’s up to for 2019. He and his team released “Rappin & Trappin” as part of his MAJOR Monday’s campaign late last year, which was meant to hype us up for his upcoming mixtape, Trap Star — which he’d been prophesizing for a little while at that point. Well, he’s blessed fans with the goods, and we aren’t one bit disappointed.


 
The 12-song project is hosted by the acclaimed DJ WildChild, who is affiliated with Wakka Flocka Flame’s Brick Squad Monopoly. With intricate production and bars (and bars) dripping with replay value, honesty, and everything we’ve come to expect from him over the past few releases.

Led by the infectious piano-driven bop of “Rappin’ & Trappin’,” the project is a hearty body of work, full of celebration, reassertion, and straight up Hip Hop. There are a breadth of vibes — all in a cohesive sonic pocket — that see him take a few different turns, before the last track, “It’s All Hype,” which in many ways feels like the highlight.

A good portion of the album sets out a lot of the success he’s seen thus far — such as “Stack Pray & Stay Out The Way” where he describes his immense focus on his current hustle of choice, music. But there is this looming sense that he feels the need to remind everyone that he isn’t where he is because of music solely. Still, he’s chosen his path and is seeing the fruit of his labor. “Nothin’ To Do With That” is a great example, as he notes that he has “nothing to do” with the same old shit, nor does he condone lying in his raps.

This idea of authenticity reiteration makes songs like “War Time” and “Tax” feel more potent on second listens. Still, with rap being his bread and butter, we can circle down to “It’s All Hype,” a declaration of realness, drive, and subtle — but heavy-handed — dedication to the new school acts who thrive off of social media. “What comes easy don’t last,” he laments as the song comes to an end.

It’s a sentiment that couldn’t be more telling of the blood sweat and tears he’s put into his craft and discography thus far.

The GlobeRunners – “The Cypher”

Recently GlobeRunners Entertainment, CEO and founder Hollyhood Bugz spoke to the press about his rising movement in New York City that’s quickly growing it’s buzz in the streets of Brooklyn.

Originally designed as a way to get kids off the streets, Hollyhood Bugz’ new rap collective the GlobeRunners embodies Hip-Hop’s original spirit; get the kids off the streets and give them something constructive to do. Accompanied by Backdoor Movements CEO, BDM Smit, the GlobeRunners are pointed in the right direction away from crime and the confinements of jail, with a renewed focus on pushing the newest track, “The Cypher.”

“I started making music when I was probably like 13 or 14 years old in a juvenile jail as a way to express myself. I kept seeing the kids on my block needing direction, so I’m just trying to creative platform to put the kids on my block in a position where they can be doing something constructive and be successful,” Hollyhood Bugz explained. “I’ve taken a lot of trips around the world and the kids see that. I feel like its something that the world should hear though too. After I went to jail and stuff like that, the fact that I became a success out here despite the troubled beginnings shows the youth they can do the same thing too. So this is way deeper than rap.”

Inspired by the philanthropic nature of Jay-Z, Hollyhood Bugz draws inspiration from his fellow Brooklyn native that made it out and found ways to transform his community.

“I’m inspired by Jay-Z’s music because he’s from Brooklyn in the projects and for him to be where he is now, that inspires me overall with my circumstances. So I just want to create this way for the youth to find their path,” Hollyhood Bugz said.

Featuring a constantly developing roster at GlobeRunners Ent., Hollyhood Bugz has signed a host of talented and hungry artists including Willzbugatti, BiggsGTO, MaseratiMickey, Stellyhundo, Teddybucks and ShanPane. With ages ranging from 18-34, this Brooklyn based group collective puts one foot forward with,”The Cypher” and cohesive sound that goes far beyond the music.

“We have about 7 artists on the first song, it’s just called The Cypher. We put them on a fire beat and we just showing our lyrical progression. WillzBugatti and BiggsGTO, they have a track out right now called Heartless and it’s kind of a melodic feel for the younger generation. Then we got an EP out called Take Money and it has 6 songs on there. Everything is on the EP, we just trying to get the best out of the music we are pushing.”
