Young RJ – “Issues” ft. BJ The Chicago Kid [Video]

August 22, 2017

By Kaitlin

Continuing with his well received solo project, ‪Slum Village’s Young RJ prepares fans for his new single, “Issues”. Issues is a creative collaboration between artists that share a similar artistry and background. Young RJ delivers thought provoking lyrics with ‪BJ the Chicago Kid finessing the track with his soulful vocals. The single was produced by Young RJ and Detroit’s emerging producer, DAG.

Issues follows up, “Wait”, his popular track with ‪Boldy James and ‪Pete Rock that premiered on Mass Appeal. Young RJ is setting the bar high amongst his rap peers by linking up with unique artists in the game and creating a new wave that’s undeniable.

Previously, Young RJ and ‪BJ the Chicago Kid worked together on “Expressive”, a single off Slum’s album, “YES”. Linking up again on “Issues”, their lyrics paint a picture of our current political climate, inner cities, and of course… personal inner demons.

“Issues” is the third single from his debut solo album, “Blaq RoyalT” which is slated for an October 10, 2017 release.

Brandon Bonine – “Remember My Name” [Video]

Brandon Bonine releases a new video for “Remember My Name.” Read what he had to say about it below.
I watched my grandma go through a terrible heartbreak with the loss of my Grandpa. At the same time, I was going through a break-up and had a parallel of falling in love with someone only to have them move on. My Grandma and I were left with broken hearts and both of our stories were falling apart for different reasons. Nothing was like it used to be. I wanted a song and video that showed the heartbreak of growing old with someone, losing them, and living in their shadow.” – Brandon Bonine

With new music being released daily, causing an oversaturation in the market, it’s not very often that raw musical talent is showcased in the forefront. Rey King is looking to change that. Already heavily accomplished as writer and producer, has been Grammy nominated and winning an ASCAP Award for his songwriting chops, King now has his sight set on his own brand as a recording artist. Today he unveils his official music video for his brand new single “Kalimbo.” Describing the song, Rey King shared “Kalimbo means a way of life, it’s a way of doing you. I feel the video shows exactly that.” He continued with “I made Kalimbo from being inspired by what’s happening in the game right now. Guys like PartyNextDoor, Drake & Chris Brown all have brought a vibe & I wanted to share my spin or perspective on that vibe.”
