Roc Nation’s rising rap artist Shawn Smith premiered the visual for his new single ‘FOMO‘ on BET Networks. The song and visual, which will be featured on his anticipated project Hurt People, Hurt People, delves into the manipulation and neglection that can take place in relationships which ultimately is seeded by the “Fear Of Missing Out” and leads to a romantic disconnect from his partner.
Shawn Smith continues to take listeners on a journey through his conscious vision of the world’s struggles as his backdrop for creating thought-provoking music. His “God-body flow” serves as lyrical healing for today’s youth. He’s not a Christian or a faith-based rapper. He’s an artist who started out as a “young savage”, became grounded in faith, and found his purpose to deliver lyrical content.
Vermont musical collective 99 Neighbors just unveiled a brand new track and video titled “Ripstick.” The latest offering follows the group’s recent Nice Work signing announcement, in partnership with Warner Records, and “Fake Pods” release, which garnered the attention of Complex, Billboard, Variety, Lyrical Lemonade and more. The new black and white “Ripstick” visual finds the group in a secluded area along abandoned train tracks. A brawl erupts between the members, with each blow synchronized to match the song’s dynamic rhythm. When speaking on the video’s inspiration, 99 Neighbors shared, “We felt like a fight scene represented the energy of the song well, but we also wanted to have fun with shooting a music video, so we did both.”
love means finding yourself…,” says Anthony Flammia on the EP.
The EP, which features the previously released track
“What You Wanna Do” feat. Kash Doll, is music full of healing, love and passion.
Nothing lifts spirits quite like music does. It resounds at unseen frequencies, inciting emotion at its core level. Through his dynamic distillation of R&B, hip-hop, funk, and pop, Anthony Flammia taps into these frequencies and it resonates on a deeper level. An innate ability to connect transformed the Yonkers native and singer, songwriter, producer, and multi-instrumentalist (keyboard, loop station, bass, guitar, drums) into a social media phenomenon upon release of 2015’s independent breakout The Looper. Catalyzing buzz, the single “So Real” went viral with millions of views and streams as he signed to Sounds Music Group [Republic Records]. Additionally, he lent his talents to collaborations with the likes of Flatbush Zombies and Brasstracks in addition to producing breakout hits such as “Gotti,” “93,” and “Chocolate” for Tekashi 6ix9ine. Acclaimed by everyone from Complex to Bossip, he perfects this approach in 2019 after five years of dedicated tinkering and grinding.

“What really inspired the song was really the lost of the great Nipsey Hussle. I was going to LA prior to his death, but when he passed that following day I knew I had express about it in a song somehow. I’m from the east coast but brought that vibe and mixed it with the west-side. I like bounce in my music and this was the right record for it. I still went to LA because I had to pay homage to a man who influenced the culture of hip hop.
I was born in Philly, crazy because i’m not your average Philly person I got a different sound and you can hear it in my music. I have 4 brothers and 1 sister. I lived in Philly for majority of my life until my best friend got killed due to senseless gun violence, that shook me up and still does today, but its one of the main reasons I started creating music. My moms moved us out to the suburbs and I have to say I see life from both side of the spectrum. Growing up in a church household was a big influence as well, that where I get my style mainly from, you feel me? The soulful, but assertiveness is me on every track you can hear it. I been through so much in life but the only thing is I chose to keep going through any situation. My style is very unique. I like a lot of bounce in my songs mixed with feeling, and that’s what I believe makes me stand out from other artists.” – Philly Artist, Siiire

It’s important for me to have it on the EP because the broader message of the song is that everything happens for a reason.

Philly hype, DYL, drops a new visual as we “patiently,” wait for his debut album, Crypto Rich.
The video pays tribute to his 2016 song “50 Racks”, which was his last release before taking time off from music to focus on cryptocurrency and Bitcoin trading.
Here’s what Dyl had to say about this video:
“When I made the song 50 Racks, it was when I first began to realize I needed more money to take my music career to the next level. 50 Racks racks is about needing to get a bag and invest in myself. It is really the song that came before I got into cryptocurrency so naturally, it lead to my album, Crypto Rich.” – DYL
