Cig 40 – Exes @cig_40

Cig 40 drops off his latest single called “Exes”, where he boast about the fact that he likes to receive text from his ex girlfriends.

Cig 40 grew up listening to neighborhood rappers like Biggie, Jay-Z and others like 50 Cent, and Lil Wayne that helped shape his youth. Heavily influenced by his brother, Cig didn’t officially start rapping until after his brother Pretty Pistols was murdered in 2012. Cig describes his music as a real distinct Brooklyn sound. Old school principles mixed with an updated raw and edginess with an authentic gritty energy that will make you bounce.

He’s ready to lift the black clouds that has hovered over his neighborhood for a long time and turn those rainy days into sunshine. He’s opened up for Young M.A, Dream Doll, Manolo Rose and a slew of other shows that featured Fred Da Godson, Phresher, Boogz Boogetz, P.N.B. Rock and Chief Keef on the bill. With Brooklyn making major noise these last few years, be sure to take note and add Cig 40 to that list in the near future.

Cedric – You Cant Rush Greatness 2 @prodbycedric

‘You Cant Rush Greatness 2’ is a collection of songs put together by Cedric, Fordy, and Jampi. The East-coast artists have showcased various forms of talent throughout their journey, but this mixtape really stands out. Every song on the project is supposed to give off different vibes. Cedric’s goal as an artist is to be as versatile as he possibly can be and he has shown us that he can in fact be versatile. He calls this being “different.”

Cedric, 19, is an underrated phenomenon from Lawrence, Massachusetts. He started making music at the young age of 11. First, he started producing beats and trying to make new sounds. As his voice developed, he began to find his own sound. In addition, his ability to mix and master songs allowed him to take a step forward, without spending a single cent. Cedric has always had a love for music, but his passion lies in rapping. He is very cautious when it comes to word choice, and his flows are unmatched. However, this was only capable because he would spend countless hours trying to learn how to cut out every single expense, and better himself. We are excited to see where the journey of Cedric will end up.
