Fetty Wap‘s self-titled debut album is due out this Friday, via Lyor Cohen‘s 300 Entertainment, but that will likely be a blip on his radar as far as 2015 accomplishments go. The Patterson native dominated radio and the charts this year, tied Billboard records, and became a force to be reckoned with in the pop world.
This song, “My Way”–the follow-up to his breakthrough hit “Trap Queen”–has got a lot to do with that. The song could’ve been found on Fetty’s Soundcloud as early as late 2014, but with Drake‘s help, it took off, and it didn’t need a music video to help it skyrocket to the Billboard Hot 100 top 10, where it would bow at #7.
Still, with Friday looming, Fetty links with Monty, his most frequent collaborator and the artist originally featured on “My Way,” for the official video, which you can watch above.
The bass-heavy B.L.O.W. by Tory Lanez sent significant chills through my body when I heard it for the first time. Lanez has a way with words and a complex set of flows that are to be admired. It’s no wonder why he’s been called on by some of the industry’s best for writing tips and ghostwriting services — allegedly. Crediting the grim production to Play Picasso and Sergio R, this serves coming-of-age moment for the Toronto-native artist as it symbolizes the transition from newbie to expert.
B.L.O.W. comes as a pleasant surprise from the entertainer’s Fargo Fridays release series. Watch the official video for the “Say It” follow-up. Looking forward to the moment Lanez successfully crosses over. This song is an indication it’s going to happen soon.
Following up his release of single “Black Tux”, Memphis, TN rapper/activist/lecturer Marco Pavé is hard at work promoting his recent TEDx talk. The lecture took place in his hometown of Memphis, where Marc explained exactly how important music is to him and why he would not be here without it. It’s always inspiring when artists within the culture realise just how important it is to add to it positively. Knowledge is one of the five elements and Marco Pavé is an artist who deeply understands the importance of sharing knowledge. Check out his TEDx appearance below.
“The history of Memphis music is long and very detailed, but along the way Memphis fell off the map when it comes to Music. I want to build a great art and music industry back in Memphis. I had been saying that in my own world for a while, I wanted to reach a larger platform with my message of respecting the arts as a viable career choice. Tedx Memphis provided that, I was able to tell my story to a sold-out crowd of 1,000+ people. “ – Marco Pavé
