Angie Rose – “Unstoppable” + “Not A Monster”

Late January, Capitol CMG and VME released the new EP from the stunning Bronx recording star Angie Rose, properly-titled, Unstoppable. In support of the new release, the Puerto Rican singer-emcee drops two new visual presentations for project-cuts “Unstoppable (Do It Again)” and “Not A Monster.”

On “Unstoppable (Do It Again),” Rose displays her diverse personality — ranging from beautiful bombshell to laid-back homegirl to fashionable businesswoman — while she recites a groovy sing-a-long that infects newfound fans, immediately. “Not A Monster” showcases an intensely artistic lyricist that unveils a deeply introspective wordplay about her personal trials and tribulations. The song has topped Spotify’s Latin playlist and transformed Angie Rose into a spankin’ new artist-to-watch of 2021.

Her backstory, growing up in The Bronx, the birthplace of hip-hop, and around the influences by her Puerto Rican roots, Rose’s musical mindset has formed an armor to withstand a world and an industry that isn’t always welcoming to women holding a mic. Rose, a SXSW fave, has graced stages across the festival spectrum with her signature blend of humility and barrio flow, appearing on stages with Pardison Fontaine, Andy Mineo, Christon Gray, and Oswin Benjamin.

Rose’s Unstoppable is a 7-track effort led by “Not A Monster” and filled with bouncy beats, quick-witted lyricism, and her soulful trademark hooks lace the tracklist, featuring anthems such as “7 Gold Chains”, that can be taken to the party or on a transformational journey. The standout, “Angels,” demonstrates her divine belief in the protection she’s felt journeying through the insular storms of her life.

Rose’s foundation of the same title was recently honored by FEMA for its philanthropic efforts and youth outreach programs. This Spring, you can catch Angie Rose performing at the 25th Annual 100 Hispanic Women gala, spreading her inspiring message of unstoppable resilience.

It’s a Texas thing. Highly-regarded Dallas recording artist Rakim Al-Jabbaar taps the Houston gatekeeper, Bun B, 1/2 of the legendary duo UGK, for a mainstream breakthrough. Their collaboration, “Picture Me Rollin,” using slick-tongued, antagonistic and assertive verses, the well-respected lyricists represent the adored unique hustler’s mentality that’s made Texas hip-hop the polarizing entity it is today. For the Huey Rawls-directed visual, Bun and Rakim take a ride through the Triple D to show the fans what it took to get the residuals, resonating in the extravagant clothes, jewelry and cars.

Bun B’s involvement on the single is a personal highlight for the ascending Rakim Al-Jabbaar, an artist who has idolized the Trill creator since the beginning of his career. On the dream collaboration, next to his idol, Rakim challenged himself to deliver his best verse yet.

“Working with Bun B was more than a dream come true,” Rakim shares in a press release. “This was the toughest song for me to complete to what I consider perfection. So much so that I didn’t get the final version until 6:45 am the morning of the video shoot. After the shoot, I experienced being high off of life for the first time. The main thing I want people to gain from this video is the value of teamwork. I had just worked with not only a legend, but a man who knew my father and respected him. This video exemplifies the value and benefit of teamwork. Thank you to everyone who contributed in any way.”

The release of new music is a slow burn for a new Rakim Al-Jabbaar album expected in 2021. In 2020, Rakim released two singles with “Dedication” and “95 State of Mind,” and collaborated on new albums by Lamar Adot Thomas, Rob Viktum and Mr Hit Dat. This year, along with “Picture Me Rollin,” Rakim previously released two new songs, “OG Cypher” and “Vodoun Gumbo.”
