REME – Move

Houston rapper REME turning up the heat with new single, “Boom”

HOUSTON, TX – No matter what you do in life, there will always be folks who don’t take you seriously. REME is dishing up a soundtrack for everyone who’s not getting the respect they deserve with his new single, “Boom.” Tired of people not believing in what he is doing, and how he’s doing it, REME sought to take the heat to another level with this heavy hitting track. With its very aggressive and speedy style, “Boom” is meant to make a statement about how serious REME is about his craft.

While his previous single “Move” was more of a dark remnant, the new single has an uptown, space-the-chase vibe. REME’s lyricism is characterized by a rapid delivery of metaphors and a lot of phrasing. REME brought his aggression into the studio to make his point and to put out a hype song to get the fans going. The new single is slated to drop during the third week of November, and will be his first track published on all major digital platforms.

A serious and committed artist, REME writes from personal experience and what he has seen others go through. He also views what’s happening in society in a different light and puts that perspective into his art. His music speaks to those who have suffered from an unhealthy state of mind. “My music is for anybody who has been in that dark place,” REME stated. 

While other rappers are content to rhyme about topics that aren’t positive, REME is conscious about directing his energy towards more fun and uplifting themes. He believes that “money, drugs and jewelry don’t make the artist” and works to have a beneficial impact. “If you’re gonna do all this, you have to give back or show a way where others can make their way. That’s what I plan to do.”

Born and raised in Houston, REME grew up listening to a diverse range of artists, including Outkast, Busta Rhymes, Snoop Dogg, Biggie Smalls, Gucci Mane, Missy Elliott and Kanye West. He has always been around people involved in music and others trying to get the experience. Being exposed to music for so much of his life lead REME to pursue his own music career.

An immensely popular local performer, REME is currently putting together a new set of local shows in and around the city of Houston. He is always open to explore new places to play. Venues and fans should hit him up at REMEMUSIC@gmail.com.

The new single follows on the success of REME’s “DREMELAND” album, which has over 30 thousand streams on SoundCloud. “Boom” launches a new project which is in the works, and another single is set to follow. Before that, look out for a snippet from the new music video for “Boom,” dropping everywhere on social media before the single’s release.

Playboy Ronnie Is Serving Up The Heat for A HOT Summer 🔥🔥🔥 | @ImPlayboyRonnie


🔥Playboy Ronnie Is Serving Up The Heat for A HOT Summer 🔥

Currently pushing two new projects, Playboy Ronnie returns with a slew of hits in the bag. He continues to build on his momentum with the release of two new projects.

It’s been a few months since we’ve heard from the Orlando homie Playboy Ronnie. Its always a special event when he sends over new material to review. Last time we ran across each other he sent over “Hard Enough” which now has more than 10K streams and growing on Sound Cloud. This time he sent us not one, but two EP’s, a new single, and an eye catching new video for yet another single.

Both EP’s titled “Say Less” and “Say More” feature 5 tracks each, the main singles are “Guns And Butter” and “Mercy“. Its a dope collection of music, the Orlando native taps in and brings the summertime vibes from Florida.

His fans know that his grind, and versatility is unmatched. Playboy Ronnie peels back the layers to reveal himself, and to better connect with his fans. He does this when many of his peers are lacking substance and quality content in their music. Doing this he is able to capture his listener’s who are streaming his music and tuned into his visuals.

I took some time to listen to both projects. I hear a distinct difference between these projects when I sat back and tuned in. Playboy Ronnie is a talented artist who deserves more attention from the people, I believe once his music reaches a mainstream audience his fan base will grow with speed and efficiency, then its take-off time for him. Fly high young home fly high.

For now stream both projects, let us know which one you like the best! Social media info is below!

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.

Brandon McCrae – Nightmares & Dreams

New single from Brandon McCrae
captures new sound of ‘hip pop’

PRINCE GEORGE COUNTY, MD – Brandon McCrae is the total package. This hip hop artist from Prince George’s County in Maryland writes, produces, mixes and masters all of his own music. And he has developed such a one-of-a-kind sound that people all along the East Coast have been sitting up and paying attention to.

His newest single, “Nightmares and Dreams,” is a mixture of hip hop and pop underneath an upbeat, fast-tempo groove that invites listeners into a good time. Self-described as a “catchy vibe,” the single is something that came from his attempt to combine multiple genres into one hard-hitting song that would put people in a groove and give them a good time.

McCrae has been producing since he was in high school. He also started battle rapping in high school, and by college had developed a unique sound to the point where he started selling his beats. He made a name for himself, first at North Carolina Central University and then at Morgan State University. That name has continued to grow to more fans all along the East Coast as he has continued to create hit after hit. 

“When I decided to become a Do-It-Yourself artist, I needed to learn how to mix, so I left Morgan State University and went to Full Sail University and joined the recording arts programs,” he said. “Since then, I have built a catalog which I am ready to release. My production and my flow set me apart from anybody else out there. My production is elaborate and intricate. I definitely have my own style, and I like to combine different styles so you can get the best of every world. I want to be known for being able to do it all – mixing, producing, writing. A lot of music sounds the same today and I want people to be able to distinctively tell my music apart because of the quality.”

McCrae not only writes, produces and mixes all of his music, but he also plays multiple instruments. He plays the drums, violin, piano, guitar, and a variety of other instruments whenever the mood strikes. He’s inspired by stories from life – whether his own stories or those of people who come in and out of his life. Sometimes his lyrics talk about the up and downs of life but more often than not, his music has a message paired with “just good music.” He aspires to leave an impact on the world in ways similar to his inspirations – Kanye West, Chain Smokers, Lost Kings and Chance the Rapper. 

In addition to “Nightmares and Dreams” which dropped July 12, McCrae is working on an EP that he plans to release later this fall.
