“Cheer Up” from Codester The Kid is about a relationship going through a rough time. The couple just doesn’t see eye to eye. Fighting everyday, lying to each other, things of that nature. The main character in the song is the boyfriend and the way he’s dealing with it is acting wild with his friends by getting into fights and partying.
As the song goes on, you realize that he knows what he has and he wants the relationship to keeping going no matter how choppy the waters may seem. “Cheer up buttercup it’s not this bad all the time, cheer up buttercup you know you’re the only girl on my mind.”

“The Way” is a heartfelt and inspirational hip-hop music video produced and filmed by Nima T featuring Reala and Motian. The dual collaboration takes us on a journey of their way of life and the way they get by.
Arash Motian was born in Tehran, Iran on June 9th 1988. Being only 12 years old when brought to live in the United States, he was now having to adapt to a whole new side of the world. After just few years into his move, he was starting to notice the hip-hop influence around school campus. It wasn’t something that he had ever been introduced to but it settled with him right away. With battle raps happening everyday, he liked the idea of being the cool kid and tell his story.
After hearing his first Persian Rap song, it sparked something in him to pursue music. Reaching back to his heritage, he noticed that hip-hop had similarities to Persian poetry which was writing meaningful words and put them in a pattern. He and his cousin Nima put together their own recording studio and entered their first stages of music making. After trying to pursue music in a group, both eventually started to take on a solo act. Motian is now residing in Dallas,TX as he continues working on creating awareness for his latest EP, “Resurrection.”

Although DSM remains intact, Reala has since then focused on his solo career pushing his brand “High Vibes” and is currently making music with some of the hottest rappers in the Mid-West region.
“Thisway” is the intro to Dre Lyrici$$’ EP titled “No Heroes…”. It sets the tone of how he wanted his mixtape to be viewed. “Thisway” is about growth and how circumstances have changed Dre’s attitude towards things. If you listen to the track, it has this somewhat “rushing” type of vibe. When he noticed that, Jay immediately structured the verse to correlate with it so the song sounds as scatterbrained as his mind normally is. “Thisway” may seem like Lyrici$$ just writing hard bars but in between the lines it’s really a story of why he is the way he is.
DeAndre Ward, better known as Dre Lyrici$$, is a musician hailing from PG County, Maryland. At a early age he began writing poetry and short stories, which over time turned into song lyrics. In 2014, Dre Lyrici$$ began working on his debut mixtape titled “D.R.E”. Through the somewhat success of that tape it prompted him to immediately begin working on his second full-length mixtape named “flyaway.”.
Unfortunately, during this time he began doing drugs heavy due to depression, fortunately it impacted his music for the better. Through those dark times he found a sound that he liked doing and that other people enjoyed listening to. When flyaway dropped it immediately became a frequently played mixtape his area. 2 EPs and single with 20k views later and now he’s feeling at the top of his game.
The end of one era is only the beginning of a new one. Come experience the fall of RizzoSwagg and the rise of etherUNLIMITED, through this masterful vampire tale told by the film itself, song lyrics, as well as other things left unspoken. There are many different ways “VAMPING” can be interpreted. Though at the forefront, it’s a song about transformation. Taking bad situations and turning the tables on all who oppose us or have hurt us. This is the first official single release off the highly anticipated album “Saturn Return” by ether.UNLIMITED.
The one man team ether.UNLIMITED that resides in Killsborough, prides himself in becoming an unlimited being in every sense of the term. Though he specializes in a conscious sort of trap music, he also expands within different skillsets, genres, and titles; ether is much more than just another new rapper. He is the true definition of an artist. Given that the name was inspired by a dream. ether’s march towards music fame and glory has been more like a spiritual journey.
Coming from the streets of Tampa, Fl., being of Taino (Native American) descent and having interests in the mystic arts, in effect proved too different a combination for his surroundings to handle. Causing him to be antagonized and demonized by the same people that should’ve loved him. Yet with the underlying pain of walking the path no one else would, ether still smiles and says “why fit in, when you can stand out”.
