Stank Nitty Unleashes “Farmacy Economy” & Tell-All Interview

BK emcee Stank Nitty drops visuals for his new single “Farmacy Economy” featuring John Jigg$. Before hitting play peep the interview below with Nitty talking about his upcoming album, an unorthodox lifestyle, and more.

MJ: Before we jump into your new single and video, I want people to become more familiar with Stank Nitty…You’re a BK-based emcee, and there’s nothing quite like New York Hip Hop, share how that coincides with your style, flow, and deliverance.

SN: I’m a relative newcomer to the city, moved to Brooklyn in 2015, which I feel raised the bar for me artistically.  New York conditions you to always be striving to beat your last best, and in Hip Hop, the standard of talent and skill has no ceiling, so you must grow wings to survive. I’d say the areas my work reflects the NYC sound may come from being influenced by golden era New York Hip Hop as a kid but living in New York pushed me to refine my sound in ways I never thought possible. I was lucky though I had good local people making space for me to thrive.

MJ: As a seasoned artist you’ve collaborated with some heavy hitters as well as Hip Hop legends. Has that opened further doors for you?

SN: That’s a great feeling to hear! Absolutely in many ways. Mainly I’m just grateful to be living this crazy life surrounded by genius.  It’s wild it feels like no matter what else is going on, it’s cool because I’m truly at the edge of human potential. I’ve always wanted to create with innovators first and foremost and that’s where you’ll see the pattern in my collaborations. I want to hear something no one’s ever thought of before. That sh*t is happening and it’s amazing.

MJ: At what point in your life did you introduce Stank Nitty to the world? When did you decide to pursue your craft as a career?

SN: Ok so for the first question, new name, Stank Nitty comes from “Sanity” which was my name for a long time. People started saying San Nitty, and I added Stank on a song called “SOB’s ft. Petey Mossberg”, off the LP “Murder of Crows” with Deuce Ellis in 2019, I said, “Stank Nitty, burn down gated communities, blast priests in sacristies,” and it stuck. I said that because I always had some strong, putrid-smelling weed. So, it’s like “Frank Nitty” the legendary bootlegger, only it’s a different prohibition altogether.  I first started hitting stages regularly at an open mic at the Local 506 in Chapel Hill, NC in 2002, but for a lot of years, I’d just be making music for fun, always writing. I started calling myself a notebook MC. It wasn’t till around 2011 when my daughter Anahata was born, I decided I was done messing around because I knew this is what I wanted to do. I never turned back.

MJ: Now let’s dive into the video…Give us some inside scoop on “Farmacy Economy” featuring John Jigg$.  Take us from the thought process through fruition.

SN: Ok so back to what I was saying about innovators, I heard “The Madness” (that sht is crazy). I immediately hit up Jigg$ on Facebook. I knew we had to make a record. I hit my brother Yaw Boso from Switzerland who I’d met when I was rocking shows in Cusco, Peru back in 2012, and he, as usual, had something nasty, so I sent it through and once we had a track it was like fck it, I haven’t been to ATL in a while.  My Bro J Ronin linked me with Shabaam Sadheeq for the video and he had dope ideas right off the bat.  He’s a great director.  He has a great eye for the big picture in a video. He hooked up the filming spot via DeAndre Perryman at Sounz Gud Entertainment/A1 Records and we worked fast.  Nam Nitty came through with a cameo that was dope, and the fam Vooda was building through the whole process…As you can see I was rocking one of his classic beanies…I shot the cover art at home, it was fun to give my weed a professional glamour shoot (I may do that again just for fun).

MJ: What’s in the works for Stank Nitty, what can fans look forward to and keep eyes and ears out for?

SN: As of the day I’m writing this, I dropped the video for ELON, video 1 in a trilogy of videos off my 7 song EP “Ketamine Cowboy” produced by Contra-Bass out of my forever stomping grounds Chapel Hill, NC.  The album is a crazy-ass psychedelic journey through my paranoid overworked mind. It’s an instant classic.

MJ: As a well-respected artist in the industry nationally and internationally, what keeps you balanced, humbled, and inspired?

SN: Word? Thank you. Hmmm…Balanced is relative because my life is extra crazy.  Still hustling, still in court trying to see my kid more, still turning up, etc.  My lady helps me stay balanced, got me back into meditation, exercise, etc. Been fighting some F’s the past couple of years, nothing keeps you more humble like cases lol, but I used to live on the road running around the country doing some of the craziest sh*t imaginable, so I just try to remember how amazing it is that I’m alive and I have a chance every day to make an impact.  My inspiration once again just comes from my crazy life and all the beautiful things that come out of it, it’s all good even when it’s not, but right now, things are GOOD good!

MJ:  Take a moment to share anything else about Stank Nitty that fans
might not know…

SN: ‘Ketamine Cowboy’ drops the first of September and both “Elon” and “Farmacy Economy” are out now…Bring me weed at shows, please and thank you.

Watch the official video directed by Shabaam Sahdeeq with production by Yaw Boso. The funky 70’s melodies along with head-nodding bass exude a chill, yet tippy vibe. Take heed, as contact high is more than likely. Don’t get too hypnotized as taking notes on Nitty’s Ganjabotony is a necessity.

Kavan – “Alright”

Today critically acclaimed photographer, videographer and imaginative visual director Kavan also known as Kavan the Kid has delivered the new music video for his song, “Alright.”

The cryptic visual pictures Kavan on a flight gone wrong in a somewhat dystopian and hellish visual that not only shows Kavan’s creativity as an artist, but also his immense capabilities as both a visual director and editor.

“Essentially the main reason I always wanted to do a plane crash is because I don’t really have any fears in life besides that. That’s the one way I don’t want to leave this earth. So I was thinking, why not put it in the video? I wanted to show that element of it and I love the idea of seeing the terror in people’s faces,” Kavan joked. “Cause you don’t know how people would respond in that situation. When the demon arrives, the premise behind it is that she’s essentially the person who’s taking me to hell. And she’ll also have a recurring role throughout like multiple videos.”

Using CGI and other visual mesmerizing effects Kavan new “Alright” visual sets him apart from the typical rap videos you see on a day to day basis. 

“This project is going to be a seven track EP when it’s done. And every video ties into the last one, it’s just going to be one long movie if you watched it straight through,” Kavan explained. “So each video is a direct sequel to the one before. Now that doesn’t necessarily mean the lyrics will always be like that. The first three songs all tie in before they become more individually focused, more just stand alone songs, but the narrative is still constructed through the visuals.”

When asked if this hellish and cryptic visual is something that lauds or promotes devil worship, Kavan explained that the visual is more about how darkness is prevalent in life. He believes in positive motives and ideals and does not promote evil in any way, but also doesn’t want to shy away from the fact evil is so prevalent in our world. In the project he explains the visuals will cover both positive and terrifying moments. 

“If anything it’d be the other way around. I don’t support that. I don’t mind playing into the imagery because of the aspect of, if something that has always felt so prevalent in my life. I always feel like darkness is right next to me or something, right next to me, but it doesn’t mean I want to be that or anything, if anything, I resent it, but like I can’t get rid of it,” Kavan explained.

Dxddy Mxxn – Dxddy World (EP)

Enter the world of the next big star in Hip Hop/R&B. Emerging NYC star Dxddy Mxxn capitalizes on his newfound fame with the release of a formal introduction in new EP, properly titled Dxddy World. Connecting grassroot followers with newly discovered fans, Dxddy Mxxn delivers a personal subject matter of R&B that’s been missing in the current landscape.

Dxddy World is a six-song introduction that tells the rollercoaster lifestyle of the New York artist as he navigates his emotions, desires, vulnerability, and more addressing coming-of-age topics like manhood, love, heartbreak and survival. Including his lead single “Ride,” the project has notable mentions “Link Up,” “Latina” and “So Cold.” While still relatively unknown to most, the EP is arguably his best work yet.

“This EP, for me, consists of some of the most vulnerable music I ever made,” he shares in a press release. “The most comfortable I ever been in my style/sound. Sometimes we hold so many emotions in because we don’t want to show any weakness, especially as men. But it isn’t necessarily healthy for our hearts to do so. We have it to “Let It Sing.” Big ups to guys like Usher, Ja Rule, Drake, Bryson, Party. You know all the singing ni–as that came before me that created a space for an artist such as myself to live in the business. Moving forward I made a pact that I wanted to further allow the audience to know who I truly am aside from the dark moods, lust and heartbreak. I have big a heart and I love, love even though it hurts sometimes. I want every girl in the world no matter how insecure or secure she may be in herself to feel like my music is a safe space for her heart. It’s summertime we just beat up the covid everyone wants to let loose enjoy life and live it to the fullest so why not match that energy through the music as well. No matter how beautiful or unbeautiful the world may deem you, I want you to feel like the baddest chick, the sexiest when you tune into my sound.”

An artist-to-watch, Dxddy Mxxn first arose on legitimate radars with the popularity of the breakout song “Ride.” You can hear the pride in every word that comes out of the new artist.

Dxddy Mxxn is another promising star of the fast-rising All Season Records roster, founded by established tastemaker Shay Royale and Chris “DJ C-Stylez” Hylton. Gaining undeniable popularity this year for his real-life storytelling, unique sound, Dxddy Mxxn elevated the signature aesthetics through 2021 with “Ride,” followed by his latest single “Vibez,” after securing a deal with Create Music Group. Dxddy Mxxn self-made artistry and execution are paying off: the buzzing recording artist currently has a surge of new discovery streams after his debut single is spreading like wildfire via word-of-mouth.

“Ride,” “Vibez” and Dxddy World is the perfect origin point for any newfound fan as he ascends to the mainstream landscape.

No official release date announced, the forthcoming debut is built on immense anticipation for the artist’s steadily growing cult-like fanbase.

Daymo – “Drink in My Cup”

Riding the success of his last single “Drink in My Cup,” Daymo returns with “These Days” featuring Nikki Paige, showing fans the vulnerable and emotional side of the Southern California artist’s composed and meticulous image.

With careful production from Lou Xtwo, “These Days” gives listeners a full immersion into the wavering world of melancholy affection, all the way from Daymo’s varying vocal techniques to the tension-building tremolo in the synths.

“These Days” (feat. Nikki Paige) is out now on all streaming platforms.
