Yes, it’s Valentines Day–but, not everyone is wrapped up with celebrating a day of romance. For those who are in their bag all 2018, Brooklyn’s own Corey St. Rose drops a new single entitled “No Time.”
“I ain’t got no time for love,” the rapper tells AAHH. Fresh off his latest project, Vibes, Corey is focused on staying persistent this year with releasing new music. The 20-year old started rapping in his mid-teen years with six of his friends in his basement. After telling his dad that music is something he wants to pursue, they’d rebuilt the basement into a studio.
“I started making beats first, then rapping,” he says. “We all started from the basement.” Being trapped in the studio, he embedded his focus on rap. Corey didn’t realize until going to college that rapping was more than just a hobby.
“College develops you. Honestly, college developed me to be like ‘nah, life is not a game,’” says Corey. He took breaks during semesters to focus on music, which was when he released Vibes, but decided to go back to get his degree in marketing while chasing his dream.
His energy and personality matches the music perfectly. I can tell you guys that Corey St. Rose is here to stay and plans on leaving a mark in the rap game. Corey explains his versatility: “I like to rap about things people can relate to. I don’t go to the studio and be like – ‘let me just [rap] about designer shit all day.’ I could do that, but most of the time I try to hit home with some real stuff. I think I make music that hits different emotions. I can make you think; I can make you turn up or feel sad.”
We can expect new music and visuals from Corey this year, as well as an EP in 2019. He also announces a documentary in the works entitled No Time, which is based on the single and about his upbringing in East New York.
