Rexx Life Raj

Rapper Rexx Life Raj kicks off the year with a new video for California Poppy 2 EP standout track “Bad Bad Bad.” The video showcases Raj’s lively and exuberant personality and sees the Pigeons and Planes Best New Artist in a hazmat suit playing a three on three basketball game, walking around his hometown, the Bay Area, and having a picnic in the park.

“Bad Bad Bad” also has the honor of being a part of ESPNmusic (@espnmusic) and the NBA on ESPN’s (@nbaonespn) featured commercial soundtrack. The song will be featured prominently throughout all NBA programming on ESPN and ABC, along with flagship shows Sportscenter and First Take.

California Poppy 2 saw Raj offering thoughtful commentary on what it means to be a Black man in America with his masterful flow and slick wordplay. Raj transitions from hilarious anecdotes and clever bullshit to heartfelt gems about relationships, and self-reflection, often making him both teacher and class clown on the same record. Produced by Kyle Betty (Raj’s in house producer) and ReeceBeats (G-Eazy, Kehlani) and mixed by Alex Tumay (Young Thug, Travis Scott), California Poppy 2 also featured industry luminaries like Juvenile and British rapper Kojey Radical.

Other singles from California Poppy 2 include “Freak” ft. Juvenile (an NPR Music Staff Top Pick), “State of Mind” (“sunny single” – Uproxx), “Tesla in a Pandemic” (“introspective instrumental that sounds as smooth as the Tesla” – Hot New Hip Hop) and “Canvas” (“will untether you from the day-to-day realities” – KUTX).

Stay tuned for more music from Raj this year.

Rising star Clay James finds new talent in Savannah, introducing Big Smitty

Big Smitty is from the Carver Village community in Savannah, Georgia. He’s known for his lyrical ability and relatable lyrics which paint a vivid picture from the eyes of Savannah’s inner city millennial generation. Coincidently Smitty’s neighborhood is not far from where Playas Club Music Group’s CEO Clay James grew up, and this is what initially caught James’ eye a couple years ago. Clay says, “I grew up in Cloverdale and Smitty’s neighborhood Carver Village is literally right next to mine. So when people started telling me about him I felt obligated to give him a thorough listen. He impressed me off first listen so I been helping him the past couple years and building a relationship with him. But I told him it’s time to take it to the next level because if 2020 has taught us anything it’s that time is precious and tomorrow isn’t promised so why wait on anything?” Smitty has garnered a buzz in Savannah from his mixtapes Kingston 1 & 2 as well as his freestyles on Instagram. Clay believes Smitty has something to offer to hip hop and his future is bright. Get to know Smitty by catching up on his previous music on all digital streaming platforms. Check out Smitty’s “Free Smoke” visual below.

[WATCH] SEDDY HENDRINX – “45” |@seddyhendrix

Seddy Hendrinx recruits A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie to cruise around NYC in new visuals for “45”

Seddy Hendrinx


Seddy Hendrinx managed to get a rare feature from the man himself, Highbridge’s A Boogie. While Seddy Hendrinx is a rising star out of Florida, anyone that can drag A Boogie out of the shadows and hold their own deserves a spot on this list. ‘45’ is off Seddy’s album that dropped on Friday, ‘Sayless’ – a really strong 7-track project with an impressive feature list also including G Herbo, Gunna, 24hrs, and another appearance from labelmate Jack Harlow. The talent and versatility of Seddy’s smooth vocals, every bit as hip hop as they are R&B, combined with the direction of Generation Now (See: DJ Drama, Don Cannon, Lakeshow, Lil Uzi Vert) – this 7-song feature flex is only scratching the surface of what we’re sure to see from Seddy Hendrinx in the coming year.

“The title is self-explanatory. I’m not trying to do too much or too little so I’d rather just Sayless. Let the music speak for itself.” – Seddy Hendrinx

Seddy Hendrinx exercises raw emotion in each verse and every hook. Holding nothing back, his confessional lyrics and catchy cadences cut deep as he details struggle in real talk. The Florida Boy Entertainment/Generation Now/Atlantic Records artist makes a connection by way of catharsis on a series of upcoming releases for 2021 and beyond.


“I try to engage with my songs,” he proclaims. “It’s every emotion you can experience. I’m just a young, humble, crazy, and wild project kid with a fucked-up temper—but a wonderful heart. I’ll always tell you straight up how I feel. This is street soulful real deal pain music.”


Seddy drew on a fair share of hardships to get to this point. “I went through every phase—homelessness, racism, bullshit, and everything,” says SH. A turbulent childhood came to a head as his family ran out of options and moved into a homeless shelter as he entered high school. At the age of 15, he became “a full-blown juvenile delinquent” with stints in and out of the county. Despite professing fandom for Tupac, Lauryn Hill, André 3000, DMX, Future, and Erykah Badu, rap never seemed like an option until he witnessed the murder of his best friend Johnell in 2016. Gunned down at a party, Johnell’s last words struck a chord with Seddy, “Ball out for me”. “I had to stand up for him. I wasn’t going to let anyone disrespect his wishes, so I started rapping.” In the end, Seddy’s voice will resonate for a long time to come. “I want you to know to understand my pain and know I understand yours,” he leaves off. “It’s okay to cry. I’m here to remind everybody they’ll get through it.” Be sure to connect with Seddy Hendrinx on his website, social media, and digital music outlets.

Johnny is pushing forward to inject love into our atmosphere through the vibration of music with the intention to eradicate fear.  

johnny crown

Johnny Crown is an emcee from Brooklyn NYC, whose style and voice will leave a lasting impression. At the early age of 12, Johnny saw his older brother rap and make his own beats, and instantly gravitated towards the art. Many years later, his brother gifted him with his own recording set-up. And the rest was history. 
From there on, Johnny learned how to write, record, and even mix his own to his liking. Johnny Crown released three projects in 2019 alone “Drunk”, “The Coolest Prince In The Jungle”, “Shine Your Light” and “Star Crest” – with different inspirations behind each album. “Drunk” is an ode to being intoxicated off of life, “The Coolest Prince In The Jungle” is an Afrobeats influenced album, and “Shine Your Light” was an awakening album. And the latest album “Fear Don’t Live Here Anymore” is an affirmation of the trying times during the Covid-19 pandemic and everyone is scared and panicking. Johnny is pushing forward to inject Love into our atmosphere through the vibration of music with the intention to eradicate fear. 


Not only is Johnny a proven talented musician, but he is also a comic book creator, a children’s book author, an actor, a stand up comic also a mentor for Tina’s Angels and Richard’s Warriors, a non-profit organization created by Beyoncé’s mother Mrs. Tina Knowles Lawson and her husband Mr. Richard Lawson.

With Johnny Crown’s sound best described as modern hiphop, it’s clear his influences are those of the same ilk. His main influence is, of course, the person who manifested this all of him, his older brother. In turn, his older brother was also influenced by those Johnny listened to as well. Those include Jay Z, Notorious BIG, Sade, 2pac, Nas, Big L just to name a few. Classic albums like “Illmatic”, “Blueprint 2” and “Lovers Rock”, were vital to Johnny’s artistry as a whole; down from his delivery, to him performing in front of a crowd.  Not only does Johnny pride himself in the lyricist aspect of the genre, but also in story-telling. And his music projects all of those abilities. 
A self-described renaissance man, jack of all trades, the Los Angeles-based artist is ready and focused to unleash an onslaught of projects in this new decade. So keep your eyes peeled for all that he has in store, and follow Johnny on his journey to the top, as he places a “Crown” on himself within Hip-Hop. Be sure to connect with JC on his website, social media, and digital music platforms.
