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.

[NEW MUSIC VIDEO] JAKE ZIMMA – “OH, SAN FRANCISCO”

Singer/Songwriter Jake Zimma Releases New Track as Ode to Hometown

Jake Zimma, a San Francisco Bay Area native dropped his latest track, “Oh, San Francisco”, as a homage to the city he calls home. A labor of love, this song speaks to the west coast hub’s illustrious history and cultural significance and is a track to cherish amid the challenges of COVID and political outcry. Now streaming on all platforms.

JAKE ZIMMA

Jake Zimma is an emerging California singer-songwriter and guitarist with musical nods to hip hop, reggae, R&B, blues, rock, and most things funky. His sound combines electronic production with live instrumentation and is often compared to Dennis Lloyd, Chet Faker, and Post Malone. Despite the comparisons, Jake Zimma’s sound is entirely his own.

Jake had a fiery start to his career when he gained 61K monthly listeners and 740k streams for ‘On Like 40’ in its first 7 months. His new release is likely to soar, as well. “The process of “Oh, San Francisco” has been a roller coaster, to say the least,” Zimma says. “Its initial inspiration was from a feeling of wanting to go back to normal life after COVID started. As political movements progressed like BLM it reminded me of what life was possibly like in the 60s during political and cultural revolutions, thus bringing the final song together. It’s built off of 6 different mixes, 3 masters, and countless hours in the studio with his band and independent producer group, The Whoadees at The Grill Studios in Emeryville, CA.” Be sure to connect with Jake on his website, social media, and digital music platforms.

KUSHY CARLITO

Money is the motive as with anything else, and growing up in the hood, the youth seem to go down the same road to gain their riches – selling drugs or hitting house “licks.” Kushy Carlito often found himself caught up and eventually suffering the consequences of his foolish decisions. But with the weight of providing for his two seeds on his back, daily, Kushy Carlito decided to make some changes. 

 

 

With a 9 to 5 grind, he used his hustler’s mentality to fuel his real dream- music. Inspired by fellow West Coast artists- Nipsey Hussle and Kendrick Lamar, Kushy began to study the game and develop his flow. He dedicated himself to mastering his craft with one goal in mind, “BE YOUR OWN BOSS”.

Today we celebrate the release of Kushy’s 5th project to date entitled, “Lost Angels.” The 10-track project features hits like “My Pain 2” and “Superbad.” Filled with witty flows and West coast vibes, Kushy is ready to take over the streets and put his name on the map. “Definitely my best work, definitely”, says Kushy.

He has displayed continued effort to catch the “wave” he once had with 3 million votes and two top-rated songs on BET.com Ya Heard.

  “A million people will like my music and a million won’t. Hopefully, some of the millions that like it, are decision makers.”

With ATR’s deep roots in music derive from his dad and uncles (Brotherly Love) who graced the 1972 Billboard charts with their #16 hit record “Momma’s Little Baby Love Lovin.” ATR’s music has a multi-regional feel by being born in Oklahoma City, growing up in Los Angeles, spending time in Brooklyn, New York absorbing the hip-hop culture and living in the Twin Cities of Minnesota.

ATR

Who is ATR, really?

In the early part of his career, James “Popeye” Greer; who managed Mint Condition’s first two gold albums, guided him on the right path with mentorship.

He didn’t want this young man to move back into a gang-infested area on the west side of Chicago. ATR started an educational program titled R.E.A.L (Reaching Every Academic Level) which is for students who struggle academically or socially. This entertainer has had the opportunity to captivate many teenage audiences with performances across the Twin Cities of Minnesota, with his ties to education and inspiring youth.
