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.

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.

VanJess Announce New EP ‘Homegrown’

Out January 29 On Keep Cool/RCA Records

Nigerian-American sister duo VanJess announce their new EP ‘Homegrown.’ Slated for release on Keep Cool/RCA Records on January 29, the nine-song collection is the official follow up to their 2018 debut album ‘Silk Canvas,’ which Pitchfork called “a captivating fusion of 1990s R&B with contemporary electronic touches.”

‘Homegrown’ hosts a robust group of collaborators, including Grammy-nominated producer KAYTRANADA, neo-soul group Phony PPL and Pomo, whose producer credits include Mac Miller’s ‘Swimming,’ Anderson Paak’s ‘Ventura’ and HONNE’s ‘No Song Without You.’ As a whole, VanJess continues along their upward trajectory on ‘Homegrown,” creating a cohesive, well-rounded project that reaches new sonic heights elevated by remarkable visuals.



Out today is VanJess’ new single “Curious.” The song lays out a diverting game of cat and mouse, as the ladies’ sultry “come hither” verses play off Jimi Tents and Garren’s accounts of passion and chemistry. Together, the vocal talents of each act ricochet off a bouncing beat produced by Jay Kurzweil (GoldLink, SZA).

In addition to “Curious,” singles like “Come Over,” “Slow Down” and “High & Dry” give a promising glimpse at what’s to come with ‘Homegrown.’ With a driving bass and drums that could soundtrack any bedroom disco, “Come Over” showcases VanJess’ perfected harmonies. Meanwhile, “High & Dry,” which LADYGUNN describes as a “sensual and laid-back vibe with intoxicating backing beats,” is a sensual invitation of a song, buoyed by VanJess’ stylish vocals and cheeky wordplay.

At the end of 2020, the ladies released a live rendition of “Slow Down” as a part of the eponymous “Homegrown Sessions,” which has also produced live versions of “Come Over” and “High & Dry.” Surrounded by clouds and looking as angelic as ever, VanJess takes viewers to heaven on “Slow Down” live. The song itself is a sweet, slow jam with swirls of R&B grooves and simmering undertones. VanJess’ on-point harmonies are accentuated by a brassy saxophone line and romantic production from Snakehips & Jonah Christian.
