[NEW MUSIC] J BENTAYGA – “FRIENDS DON’T HATE” 

J Bentayga Rap Artist releases his latest single titled “Friends Don’t Hate”

J Bentayga is an American rapper from Fort Worth, Texas, right outside of Dallas. Exhibiting a wide variety of sounds in his discography, J Bentayga may be one of the most versatile artists we have come across in a while. Ranging from boastful rapping on hard beats to emotional singing on softer beats, there is and will continue to be a J Bentayga song for any music lover. J Bentayga says he has a split personality and after hearing his music, it is a prominent claim. Whether it be his tone of voice or the subject of the song, as you get to know him through his music, you will notice two polar opposite moods are consistent through his tracks.

j bentayga

Outside of music, J Bentayga is a scholar and an entrepreneur. Graduating from Texas Tech’s Rawls College of Business with a degree in Management of Information Systems, J Bentayga is a passionate computer programmer. This field allows him to sneak his natural creativity into a corporate setting. However, J Bentayga does not desire to work for anybody other than himself in the future and would rather risk it all taking the “entrepreneur’s path”. Music is his number one way to make a big mark in the world, but he has a vision for his brand the “Twin Comma Club”, where he wants likeminded people from all ages and backgrounds to come together as a collective and achieve the “second comma” in the bank status. He plans to sign extremely unique and talented individuals to his record label and help them with the business side of the industry in a way that all they have to focus on is their craft. The Twin Comma Club is not just a record label, but a place for all entrepreneurs to have access to an exclusive network of gifted individuals with similar goals.

[Video] 8rooklyn 8atman (@8rooklyn_8atman) – “8ruce Wayne”

 8rooklyn 8atman will release his second LP “Plague of a Dark Generation” on Friday, September 10, 2021, on all streaming platforms. A deluxe package for the release will be made available to fans including merchandise curated by 8rooklyn 8atman that includes the first release of the 8rooklyn 8atman “Plague of a Dark Generation” (POADG) comic strip. As a vegan, 8rooklyn 8atman promotes healthy alternatives for all people regardless of what they engage with. The package also includes hemp rolling papers, a limited edition POADG snapback, a Bat tee, and a tape cassette for fans who still like tangible music. The album features production from GOTCHA, Digital Crates, Dre Da Most, Def Starz, Nixon Beats, Fritz & LSP, King Payday, Dellononthetrack, Curious George. 8rooklyn 8atman self-produced four records on the album himself. Finally, the album will also feature DJ Whoo Kid who will appear as The Mixtape King, a character in this Brooklyn Batman universe. Each song will represent a new adventure for our Brooklyn Batman.
8rooklyn 8atman follows up to his first single “Chiddy Bang,” which received over 150,000 views on Youtube, with his new fun-filled music video for “8ruce Wayne.” “8ruce Wayne” depicts 8rooklyn 8atman taking on Harley Queens as they initiate an unprovoked attack against Brooklyn’s dark knight. The video was directed by 8rooklyn 8atman. @Controversenyc shot and edited the video that was filmed on location in the Don Cesar Hotel in St. Petersburg, Florida. The Don Cesar Hotel was formerly a Veterans Affairs hospital and made the perfect backdrop for Harley Queens to run wild in the makeshift Arkham Asylum.

“I want people to be entertained,” said 8rooklyn 8atman. He continues “I’m not a typical artist and people may feel my get-up is a gimmick but it isn’t. After being released from prison I wanted to be someone that my sons can look up to. That’s why I started going by Brooklyn Batman. It allowed me to engage with my 4-year old son when I came home in a fun and positive way. I hope fans take away from this that I am Brooklyn Batman and my job is to motivate people through music and share how I overcame my own many struggles. Growing up in foster care, not being wanted, getting wrapped up in the system were all obstacles to me. However, a seed was planted and it grew out of concrete for me. It’s time I plant some seeds to the fans and other people who might just need to hear something good. As I say in my verse on Bruce Wayne, ‘if you are what you think then think you’re the shit!'”

The Ultraviolet Pirates Tour headlines recording artist Riff Raff of Houston, Texas and Grammy-winning DJ, “The Mixtape King,” Queens-born DJ Whoo Kid. JodyHighRoller Entertainment announced Brooklyn Batman’s addition to the tour from August 14 to August 29, 2021, following an impressive showing during the United States southeast region leg of the tour.

Brooklyn Batman also sells the books on tour as part of his merch. The Brooklyn-rapper performs with his band the Frontline Avengers. The Frontline Avengers include Qu3st Qu3st, Reck Savage, and RockstarODD and they act as an anchor to Brooklyn Batman’s high-energy performances. Imurje Inc is the label.

[MUSIC VIDEO] TYLER TRAPPY – “MR. MAGOO”| @tylertrappy

East Coast Rapper Tyler Trappy delivers his catchy single “Mr. Magoo”

Tyler Trappy (born June 16, 1997) commonly referred to as simply “Trappy” is a well-known rap artist and songwriter from Orlando, Florida who has been around the rap game for quite some time now. The rapper is also a comedian, entertainer, Instagram influencer, and Youtuber. The rap artist rose to fame, not only from his music but from a shocking video that went viral all over the internet of the rapper smoking a cigar and laughing while fire ants start crawling out of his mouth. Also, he is known for his live stream performances through social media by doing dangerously crazy stunts to earn money. 

tyler trappy
r trappy

The reason why Trappy stands out as such a rare and interesting person, he is willing to get in front of an audience and do something nobody has ever done or seen before. Out of all the things people do for money and clout, most of us can agree that Trappy has done the most to keep the number of his views and his fanbase consistently rising. He knows how to grasps people’s attention uniquely with his original content that nobody has ever thought of doing yet. 

Some people may find that the rapper Tyler Trappy is a disturbed individual based on his image. Unlike most Hip-Hop fans know, Trappy suffers from a mental disorder known as Asperger’s syndrome. Asperger’s syndrome is a developmental disorder affecting the ability to effectively socialize and communicate. This disorder makes it very difficult for Trappy to articulate so he keeps his responses very short while interacting with people. Despite the disorder, Trappy manages to become very popular in the underground rap scene. Be sure to connect with Tyler Trappy on his website, social media, and digital music platforms.

[Web Series] “No Time To Play Fair” Season 1 Episode 6: “No Lackin” | @Fairplay_2333 @SSDFPodcast

Chicago rapper Fairplay 2333 stars in the web series “No Time To Play Fair”, this is episode six entitled “No Lackin”. “No Lackin” is a Chicago term used to always stay on point and keep yourself protected at all times, so you guess what this episode contains. Do Play and his crew get caught lackin or not, make sure you watch to find out. 

[Music] Micah Willis – “Forget” | @iammicahwillis

Sensational R&B singer and songwriter Micah Willis drops a brand new R&B single titled “Forget.” “Forget” is a moderate tempo elevating R&B track with lyrics and theme leaning towards dance and “having a good time.” “Forget” is a “feel-good” song somewhat written in response to the most recent world upsets and crises – especially the COVID-19 Pandemic of 2020. According to Micah Willis, “Forget,” just as the song title suggests, is about “forgetting all the terrible times we had in 2020.” Micah believes it is time everyone goes out to have fun.
Instrumentally, “Forget” is rooted in very solid R&B influences as it also taps some minor [but not insignificant] elements from genres like rap, trap, soul, and blues. The tranquilizing, fluid, and subtle piano harmonies/melodies meddled with rudimentary but thumping R&B drum grooves, trap percussions, cinematic sound effects, 808s, and the sensuous vocals of Micah Willis create not just an elevating atmosphere but also quite a calming and reassuring one.
Willis as a musician is known to always push musical and overall creative boundaries in his
compositions and writing. With a voice as soothing as water, Willis passes for both an R&B
story-teller and a therapeutic singer. Talking about therapy, “therapeutic” is another perfect word to describe the single “Forget.” With naturally fluid and melismatic vocals, Willis manages to bring together influences from diverse and “not-exactly related” musical styles and genres to create a unique blend of a familiar genre like R&B – a special R&B blend typical of only Micah Willis. “Forget” is available on all music streaming platforms. You can also follow Micah Willis on all social media platforms to keep up with his ever-dynamic lifestyle.

West Coast Artist, Floy Dexx delivers the visual to his single “Timeless”

Floy Dexx is a versatile hip-hop artist raised in Belize City who triples up as a producer and executive producer. At the age of 10, Floy has a romantic start with music and learns to write songs. At that time, most of his songs were about his life – drawing inspiration from legends such as Tupac Shakur. Floy’s enterprising mind gave him an early start that was way ahead of his peers. At age 16, he took himself through college while producing singles for other artists and himself. His ability to sell is one among many of his stellar qualities other than music. When he was 24-years-old, Floy sold over 10,000 copies of his first mixtape only in the first month of its release.

In September 2018, he worked alongside prominent names in music such as Snoop Dogg and Famous Dex. He has since harnessed the power of collaboration and learn from the best while building his presence in the industry. Floy’s music is an exciting mix of Hip-hop and the “good vibes” culture, such as the one embedded in Jamaican music. The seamless integration of these two genres is testimony to his mind-blowing musical prowess. Floy Dexx’s 2018 single, Tropical Nights, is one such song that has a powerful mix of both hip hop and Jamaican music. In 2020, he released more break-through singles such as; “The One, Flawless, Press Play,” among others. With a growing national fanbase, Floy is undoubtedly the one to watch in the near future.

FLOY DEXX

While growing up in Belize, has was surrounded by several challenges, synonymous with anyone growing up in a third-world country. There is not much diversification in Belize. People there were mainly focused on Jamaican music. But Floy was inspired to choose a different route and chose to be true to himself and his calling in music – just like a true believer that he is. As a kid, he used to watch B.E.T and told himself that, someday, he would be there doing exactly what they were doing. That dream never died. Floy has never let it go since that time. Hip hop was always his thing. He believed that through it, you can tell a story beyond what anyone could ever imagine. For all these years in music, the idea behind creating amazing stories for his fans has kept him believing in more.
