Recently Rockstar Rodie released the audio for his critically acclaimed and aptly titled track, “Rockstar.” 

The track traces Rockstar Rodie’s past experiences on the road after having been on sold out tours with popular artists like Future, Kevin Gates and Chief Keef to name a few.

“Shout out to Future, he let me come rock out on his tour, I’ve been on tour with Kevin Gates, I was on the Chief Keef tour and I even did a solo tour last year,” Rockstar Rodie said. “I want everyone to know about the music that is out now, so I want people to check out the songs with Future that’s got 4 million views, Kevin Gates, OT Genasis and I got songs with a bunch of up-and-coming artists in Chicago. I got tracks with Money Man and a bunch of others, I’ve been putting in the work and I got the co-signs.”

Shunning any comparisons to rappers in Chicago and rappers in general, Rockstar Rodie believes his music is beyond the scope of what typical rappers are putting out. 

“I don’t even follow up in the rapper category, much respect to all the artists from Chicago but I’m a rock star. I don’t pay attention to any of the beef these cats are involved in, I’m more focused on the positive vibes and the music,” Rockstar Rodie explained. 

“Please don’t call me a rapper / I am more like a rockstar,” he raps in his lyrics of “Rocksta,r” echoing his thoughts of not wanting to be called a rapper. 

“Rockstar is a feel good record a record that’s meant to motivate or even uplift whoever listens to it. The Rockstar record is produced by Ronny, he does beats for the stars and he’s worked from Keyshia Cole to Drake to 2Chainz so I was really happy to do an album with him – he co-produced this one,” Rodie said.

The new music comes on the heels of Rockstar Rodie undergoing a name change, to refresh his movement and brand.

“I changed my name from Joe Rodeo to Rockstar Rodie, I just felt it was time for a change, I had been doing music under that name for a while and I felt like this was more of an artist’s name,” Rockstar Rodie said. “I think the visuals are going to put a fresh face on it because everyone is trying to figure out what’s up with the song.”

Rockstar Rodie’s “Rockstar” is a release from Synergy Jaz Records and will be featured on his Rockstar Status album. 

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.

Recently Cash Money Records/UMG signee Fat Yunginn delivered his new video for the song, “Show My Ass” featuring fellow Dallas, Texas rapper, Yella Beezy. Flaunting fast cars, women and of course sacks of money, Fat Yunginn continues to put himself on everyone’s radar going into the Summer months.

“We shot the video last year around this time and we kind of held on to it. There’s a food fight scene in the mansion with some ladies and then we got a scene where me and Yella Beezy are racing cars. He was in a Hellcat and I was in a Charger. We were just doing it for fun, but there were some females out there, and we were showing off,” Fat Yunginn said. “It’s a great opportunity being with Cash Money. I always wanted to sign with them as a kid and just to be a part of them now it’s an honor. I always liked their music videos and songs and I’m rapping about the same stuff they were – it’s the same lane of music they were dropping in the 90’s and 2000’s just with a new twist. They supported me when I dropped my single on all the platforms under Cash Money and now with the Show My Ass challenge they’ve been really helpful getting that going.”

The song and challenge come on the heels of a string of successes for the young Texas upstart who has graced the pages of Billboard, AllHipHop, Hype Magazine and his hometown newspaper the Dallas Observer since the announcement of his signing to Cash Money Records / UMG.

“Things have been going good despite COVID-19, we are getting ready to start the #ShowMyAssChallenge and then we got the #ShowMyCash challenge for the fellas. We got the song on Apple Music, Spotify, Tidal and all the platforms, we are ready to go. When the females win they get $1000, but for the males you get a post on IG and we gonna help them go viral,” Fat Yunginn said laughing.

While COVID-19 has posed a host of problems for rappers like Fat Yunginn, he has found ways to keep the fans engaged despite losing out on show money every day that the clubs and bars are closed.

“They opened the clubs and strip clubs, but they just closed them back down. I had just got booked for a show out here, but with the COVID-19 thing we are back on shutdown. We started back going and they had released us for a month and I had a show right away, now we are shut down. We have just been coming up with stuff online to keep the fans interacting. I was supposed to perform on the 4th of July, but it wasn’t meant to be.”

Despite the slowdown, Fat Yunginn has been steady at work putting the finishing touches on his album Sack Season that will be available for fans later this year.

“Show My Ass will be on the album Sack Season and it’s gonna be one of the singles on there. It’s got Yella Beezy on there and it’s a single for the city and basically Texas – the fans were asking for it so we gave it to them. The music video has been out for a bit, we got on Revolt, BET, MTV so we are going to mix that and start the challenge. We got on a good number of mixshows in Houston and Atlanta, so I think the fans are going to respond well.”
