Rank Rated – Baggage

West Coast artist inspires others to ‘Rank Up’ with new music

LOS ANGELES, CA – Regardless of what we go through in life or what we face, no matter the adversities, we can always elevate.

That’s the core concept behind everything that West Coast artist Rank Rated does. His music, his art and his message is all about being better. And the long road he’s been on – from homelessness to successful entertainer – is a testament that with determination and a dream, you can fulfill your destiny.

Two of his most recent singles by upcoming composer PacoTheProducer– “Valid” and “Baggage” – speak directly to that life motto and tap into depths of his talent in ways that bring forward a new wave of sound and style for a generation desperate for something original. With “Valid” which is slated to drop on July 26, Rank Rated rails against the social norm of validation that pops up in multiple places of our lives.

“Everyone is looking for validation today,” he said. “We live in a time where everything has to have validation – whether it’s a credit score or experience in whatever industry you’re in, or even likes on social media. Whatever it is, we’re all seeking some type of validation and more often than not, we’re seeking that from other individuals. I had people who told me I couldn’t do certain things, but here I am. I validated myself and pushed forward based on what I knew I could do.”

Rank also reveals how through social media and mutual friends he has met people like DJ FiveVenoms, director JDfilms, and Quavo. He also stated an affiliation with JGreen (of YNW), whose manager Rank has been in contact with for a while and who he respectfully calls “Unc.” Rank also noted his independence through platform United Masters which features other artists such as Lil Tecca and Choppa on their roster.

With “Baggage,” which was released in June, Rank Rated explores the hard work it takes to attain success. And once you achieve that success, the symbols that come with that, such as the baggage you bring with you as you’re traveling the world, can be an affirmation of that hard work that brought you to this point. 

“I’m doing my thing right now, living my life and catching flights,” he said. “That’s what this song is about. It’s about getting to the money, a fun song that really says, ‘I don’t care what anybody else has to say.’”

“At the end of the day, I hope my music is known for being inspirational, in a way,” Rank Rated said. “I was able to do it so you can, too. Ranking up is something everyone can and should do, whether that’s getting a promotion at a job or trying to create a better life for yourself. Rank is having status. Rank is everything. So tell your haters to Rank Up. 

In addition to his two most recent singles, Rank Rated has also released a new EP called “Far From Regular” which is available on all digital distribution outlets. With catchy lines about baggage and baguettes that slide on the beat, fans will definitely be eager to hear more.

C Titus – Yeah

West Coast artist C Titus drops hot summertime track ‘Yeah’

OAKLAND, CA – A hot new summertime vibe from West Coast artist C Titus is hitting the airwaves, and fans all over the country are hopping on the hype train.

The song is called “Yeah” and it’s the perfect song for the club, for a party, or for just cruising in the car with friends. Once you hear it, “Yeah” immediately becomes part of your daily playlist. With that summertime house party type of feel, it’s a track that can be played any time of year and bring you right back to that summertime vibe. Featuring Black Albert, C Titus’ “Yeah” will hold its place as one of the premier tracks of summer 2019.

“It definitely has that west coast type of vibe to it,” C Titus said. “It’s one of those songs that‘s just fun to play, with a chorus that talks about being a player but with finesse and a hook that will stick in your head for a long time.”

C Titus said one of the things this single showcases is his unique sound and style and his ability to pick the right content to match with the quality beats he selects and develops with his producers. He has a large archive of music that he has made, but not much of it has been released because he believes strongly in quality over quantity. He is constantly working on his music to make it perfect so his audience can feel every note come through their speakers.

“In today’s industry we have a lot of quantity, but not a lot of people are taking pride in quality,” he said. “I’m taking a slow approach with my music. With Dr. Dre and ‘The Chronic,’ he took a slow approach, and he’s one of my idols. So is Nas, who is my favorite rapper. He has always given me wisdom and knowledge through his music and his ability to paint such a clear message with his writing and delivery. It’s the best in the game. That’s why I’m taking his approach. I might sit on a song for a long time and add backgrounds and layers to it over time. It’s art, and with all good art you have to take your time with it and make sure it’s quality. Everyone who listens to my music deserves that quality.”

Born in Oakland, California during an era when drugs and prostitution ruled the inner city neighborhoods, C Titus turned to music to avoid the pitfalls and allure of the streets. His father was also a musician and traveled around the world to tour with his band. C Titus recalls spending hours upon hours in the studio with his father while he recorded music. Additionally, his cousin, Sonny B – a well known producer in Northern California who has produced for Tupac, Too Short and The Delinquents among others – helped inspire C Titus and put him on a path toward success in the music industry. To date, he has managed two projects with fellow artist CHA-Chng and was also part of the West Coast hip hop group Da Famm. He is now stepping back into the spotlight as an independent artist while continuing to run his business.

“I typically talk about the challenges of being a black male trying to overcome the stereotypes as well as the modern other things that the majority can relate to,” he said. “I always avoid the typical way of expressing the message I want to convey, and I create a vibe that people can relate to. My ultimate goal is to create other opportunities for others in the music industry. Business is part of my core values and I will never stray away from opportunities for expansion.”

ENYergon – Mile Low Club

New York native ENYergon prepares to drop
second EP in ‘Trimurti’ trilogy

BROOKLYN, NY – As a child, Sais Black loved Transformers. He watched all the cartoons, he collected all the toys, and he could tell you everything about the world. For instance, he could tell you that the substance that gave the Transformers their power was something called “Energon”. And as he grew up and started discovering a natural ability as a rapper and musician, he knew he wanted to be an artist that displayed that kind of power to the world. And so it made perfect sense for him to adopt the stage name ENYergon. The pseudonym is an adaptation of Energon and the abbreviated version of East New York.

Today, ENYergon is a standout hip hop artist from New York whose initial EP, “Trimurti: Welcome to the Underverse”, gained him some major attention along the East Coast. Now he’s ready to follow that up with the second of a planned EP trilogy, “Trimurti 2: Breathe Life.” The trilogy of projects is inspired by the Hindu religion of Trimurti that is similar to Christianity’s holy trinity of the Father, Son and Holy Ghost.

“I use that as inspiration, with each one about people who were close to me that I lost – my mother, brother and father,” ENYergon said. “Each EP is a different vibe. ‘Breathe Life’ is about breathing new life into hip hop, and really focuses on that kind of vibe.”

One of the things that set ENYergon apart from others in the industry is his subject matter. It’s easy to pigeonhole artists and put them in a box – painting them as only a trap artist, or a gangsta rapper, or an R&B aficionado. But ENYergon embraces versatility and said he is an artist who can be looked to as someone who creates a wide variety of music – something for the clubs, or something with deep lyricism, or something for the streets, and everything in between. Ultimately, it’s his subject matter and that versatility that set him apart.

“I just want my music to be looked at as versatile,” he said. “It’s everything to me. I can do hardcore, soft, love songs, lyrical, clubs songs – anything that kind of takes risks and goes against the grain. High risk equals high reward. It may not always work out but if it does, it’s gonna hit them, leave a memory and keep people intrigued. That’s the type of sense and reality I’m trying to inject into the genre – being unexpected and taking risks.”

The debut single from the new EP is “Mile Low Club” which will further demonstrate ENYergon’s versatility by bringing a smoother R&B vibe through a song that he calls a perfect single of “sexual intercourse on a train.” It serves as an appetizer of sorts, to whet the appetites of listeners before hitting them with an upbeat, powerhouse single in “Butterflies,” featuring the Songstress Jai Emm which is set to drop later this summer.

Another track from the EP, “American Nigga,” is a perfect example of that versatility. It explores the plight and pitfalls that society brings to the doorstep of his demographic.

“You might think it’s good, but it’s not,” he said. “There are things like materialism or detrimental cycles with family that set a bad example for the community and kids altogether. I don’t want to be an American Nigga. This song is a call out to the world and international community about what goes on within these borders.” There is an awakening going on in the black community that this song embodies. The full EP will be distributed across all digital distribution sites in September.
